The growing trend of Pastors, Politicians and Parishoners converting to, or compromising the Muslim faith with the God of The Bible.
Let’s face it, Christianity has lost it’s salt in the West. It is become a lukewarm limp noodle that will not stand for the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, The Gospel, The Commandments or against sin. Instead, the wet tissue paper of today’s Christian church stands for ‘tolerance’, ‘diversity’, ‘acceptance’ and ‘love’ while adhering to a Satanic deception that Christians should not judge sin, or right from wrong. The number of American Christians I have heard that say proselytizing or preaching the Gospel is ‘offensive’ to non-Christians and should not be done, is epidemic. They buy the media’s argument that trying to convert others to Christianity is a sin, while nary a word about the conversion of Christians in the West to Islam and Hinduism. II Timothy 3:5 is what the Christian church in America is become, and how we have arrived at the point that embracing homosexuality and even perverting the God-ordained institution of marriage IN the church is growing in acceptance.
Greater Christianity in America no longer even stands for itself. It has become a lip-service faith. A hybrid of the secular materialistic society that dominates our culture. Gone is the focus of doing Matthew 28: 19-20. Missionary funding and support for preaching the gospel takes a back seat to bigger monuments to self; ‘great works of the Lord’ focused on getting more bodies into pews and offerings into plates than transforming lives with the Gospel. Giant mega buildings with coffee shops and ATM’s in the lobby designed to draw thousands that sit empty and unused most of the week. Televangelists and false preachers beg their members for money for personal lavish royal lifestyles. Convenience, programs and perks make church more a social club than a place to sharpen iron for the task of a way of life we have been called to. Instead the people want to hear smooth and easy things for itching ears.
So too has arisen the political Left church – whose doctrines are a melding of Marxist philosophy with the Beatittudes of the Sermon on the Mount that champion what they say is Christian Socialism. Those that do say they adhere to the bible, are more intent it seems to tear other Christians apart, hide themselves from the world and fight or eschew others in the faith over matters of doctrine, catechism and understanding, rather than standing against sin.
Divorce, adultery, addictions, abortion, homosexuality are as practiced in the church in America as it is in the collapsing society at large.
So is it any wonder, that now we hear American pastors, preachers and televangelists equating Islam as equal to or superior to Christianity? Should we be surprised that a new heresy of Chrislam is being pushed and promoted by the leadership of large Christian churches and denominations? Does it alarm any in the faith that former American Christians find no power in Christianity, and are flocking to Islam and converting to a faith that stands for the purpose of conquering and to conquer with the bow and the sword?
I continue to be amazed at how God moves His true servants with a message that He wants a remnant to hear. A pastor friend of mine wrote an observation last week about this very subject – and his essay was followed by one story after another that illustrated his point to an alarming perfection. A pattern is emerging as America and the West are continually given over to strong delusion to believe a lie, and the desire to follow those lies with eagerness because Christians are too busy following men, and not Scripture.

While passing through a line at an airport security check I witnessed an animated conversation between a male and female pair of security guards. Both were Americans, formerly Christians and he was questioning her decision to convert to Islam. She, at a loss to find a convincing answer threw up her hands and exclaimed, “It’s something you wouldn’t understand.”
You may be as perplexed as I am that any American, born in a country where freedom and justice have been highly valued, would choose to embrace Islam. You may be shocked to know that a wave of tens of thousands of people in the Western Culture have converted to Islam. Even more appalling is that 75 percent of those multiple thousands are women.
If the trend could be worse, it is. Most of these women gravitate to the more misogynistic groups where women have no rights. Yet they insist all the while that they feel liberated and free.
Abigail Esman, an award-winning author, has written a new book called Radical State: How Jihad is Winning Over Democracy in the West. Ms. Esman has studied many such women.
She writes that “most of these young women display little self-confidence or ability to define their own values and behavior-qualities that make them easily influenced by others, and susceptible especially to those who offer up a lifestyle option that relinquishes them from responsibility for their actions, that gives them a code of behavior and the ease of attributing what they do or wear or eat to God and not to self.”
Because the profiles of the converts are very similar, “recruiting by radical Muslims is made so easy-and is-performed virtually programmatically.”
BBC reports that, “Muslim women are targeted by extremist recruiters for jihad precisely for their willingness to follow the advice of more ‘knowledgeable’ Muslims and the commands and demands of Muslim men.”
Why are such women so valuable to Muslim extremists? The answer was given by Zubeidat Tsarnaev, mother of the Boston marathon bombing suspect in a CNN interview. She said, “If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!”
Muslim extremists are looking for women so lacking in values and so easily influenced by others that they will raise a child to be sacrificed on the altar of Muslim jihad. And they are finding them in the Western Culture.
When the Apostle Paul preached to Gentiles in Galatia many were converted to the rational faith of Christianity. Some of those who had been enslaved to pagan gods found freedom in Christianity. But freedom is hard to maintain. It requires taking responsibility for self. So some of the new Christians sought out new masters to whom they could become enslaved again. Paul admonished them when he wrote, “O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth…”
Paul was shocked that free people would volunteer to become slaves again. No rational person would give up obedience to truth to become enslaved to a man unless he was mesmerized or hypnotized.
So we are as shocked in the 21st Century as Paul was in the 1st. There are beings among us with the body of a human but lacking the spirit of freedom. They seek bridles and chains to be led by unscrupulous tyrants. They have gained a foothold; may they never gain dominance in the land of the free.
Well Jim, my friend, when the leadership of the largest congregations and denominations in America start preaching that Allah and The Father of the Bible are one and the same – is it any wonder that this people would sell themselves into the slavery of Islam?
Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California is the eighth largest church in the United States with an average attendance of 20,000 or more. Rick Warren is the founder and senior pastor of this mega church. He is also known for his popular book and program of church growth known as The Purpose Driven Church.
He has built his temple of thousands on a platform of liberal theology. His preaching is more emotionally based than spiritually based which is how, according to Rick Warren, you build a big church. The bottom line of his philosophy is that it is more important to build a big church than teach sound biblical theology.
In his typical liberal fashion, Pastor Rick Warren has joined a movement known as King’s Way. The movement’s goal is to bring Christians and Muslims together without either group trying to proselytize or convert the other.
As part of this effort, Warren announced that he wants to create a set of principles that both evangelical Christians and Muslims could agree to in the effort to bring churches and mosques closer together. One of those principles is that we both worship the same God. In other words, God and Allah are one in the same deity.
Sorry Pastor Rick Warren but you couldn’t be more wrong. If you really believe this, it demonstrates just how far from the Bible you have strayed.
Yes, I know that Muslims trace their history back to the Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Jews and Christians trace their history back to Isaac, also the son of Abraham. Warren used this common history as the basis of making his statement on God and Allah being one and the same.
However, the Muslim view of Allah and is not the same as the Christian view of God. Here are some major differences:
- Allah is one in substance and person where God is one in substance yet three persons in the Godhead.
- One of the persons in the Christian Godhead is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
- In Islam, Jesus was all human who was a prophet whose message has become corrupted.
- Christianity is based upon Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Islam believes that Jesus did not die on the cross but did bodily ascend into heaven (it was one of his disciples).
There are many other differences, but I listed these as they are critical to the Christian faith. Christianity is based upon the fact that Jesus was God incarnate who died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the throne of God. Islam does not recognize Jesus’ deity, death and resurrection.
So who exactly does Rick Warren worship? Does he worship God and Jesus Christ or does he worship Allah who denies the deity of Christ? If he worships God, then he cannot believe that God and Allah are one and same. If he worships Allah, then he is not a Christian. You can’t have it both ways.
But it doesn’t stop there, Americans refuse to accept the fact Jihadist Islam is at war with us, and seeks to kill, main, and subjugate by force.
It’s another one of those baffling mysteries. Muslims attack non-Muslims while shouting Allah Akbar and no one can figure out a motive.
Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, said the two victims had been wearing Jewish skullcaps, and the attacker was detained after a chase through the synagogue. The Simon Wiesenthal Center, which monitors anti-Semitic incidents worldwide, said in a statement that the assailant screamed “Allah-u-Akbar” — or “God is great” — during the attack.
The rabbi, who is in his late 40s, was recovering from surgery for a neck injury and his 18-year-old son sustained lesser injuries in the attack. The assailant was of Iranian origin, and an official investigation was underway to determine a possible motive.
Neck injury is the Washington Post’s delicate way of saying that he tried to cut Rabbi Baruch d’Epinay’s throat.
The motive is incomprehensible. The one thing we can be sure of is that Islam has nothing to do with it. The media is emphasizing the loony angle because the Muslim attacker was a patient, but a Muslim attacking a Rabbi is not a mental breakdown, it’s conventional enough behavior. There have been plenty of Muslim attacks on Jews in Europe. Major Muslim leaders have called for doing far worse than slashing two men with a boxcutter.
But once we’ve dismissed the Islamic motive and focused on the loony issue,why was the Muslim slasher committed to a psychiatric hospital in the first place?
“He was detained on 28 March after being arrested for” the damage committed on the astronomical clock of the cathedral of Lyon, “said another source.
So it’s a real interfaith issue.
What was his entirely secular reason for attacking the church clock? He complained that the clock was interfering with his prayers.
Then there are the Islamic countries within our country that serve as Jihad training camps, open and in our faces with the permission of our own Government.
Islamabergs arise all over America. Islamic Jihad Training Camps dot the landscape under the permissive eyes of the federal Government.
Hidden in the picturesque Catskills Mountains, in Hancock, NY, siting on more than 80 acres of land, surrounded by trees, rolling hills, lakes and, most importantly, armed guards that protect it, is a city within a city. Its Islamic leaders call it “The Town of Islamberg.” Located at 2732 Roods Creek Road, Hancock, NY, the Town of Islamberg is more like a country within a country.
It’s an Islamic community, located about 3 hours from New York City. It has set itself up as its own city-state, with its own laws, its own government (its own mayor, deputy mayor and 5 town council members; government departments of “Land and Development,” “Finance,” “Education” and even a “Medical Services” department), as well as its own military. The Islamic council members are not elected, of course. They are self-appointed demagogues who rule their community with the iron fist of Islamic law. There is no Sheriff Andy, no Barney Fife, no Aunt Bee in this town.
The group behind this initiative is an organization called Muslims of the Americas (MOA)—an organization, by the way, that was once listed as a terrorist organization by the United States Department of State. The group’s founder, Sheik Gilani, fashions himself as a direct descendent of Muhammad. He was the man to whom Wall Street journalist Danny Pearl was on his way to meet in Lahore, Pakistan on January 22, 2002, hunting for al Qaeda connections, when he was abducted and slaughtered by an Islamic extremist.
MOA has nearly three-dozen villages, camps and Islamic compounds scattered around the United States, all of varying sizes and population, in Texas, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, California and Tennessee. But this camp in Hancock, which also serves as their headquarters, is the first to be so brazen to set up its own Islamic government. And the one thing they all have in common: This is where everyone–-men, women and children–-prepare for Jihad against America. So, please join me in taking a moment to thank those millions of ass holes that voted for an administration that will NO DOUBT welcome more and more Towns of Islambergs and Islamvilles all over the country with open arms.
Want to know just a wee bit more (you can get more detail from the link provided below) about the MOA thinks and preaches about Jews? Just a snippet: “Jews are an example of human Satans. In the U.S. there are now thousands of temples where Satan is worshipped.”
How ‘bout a small sampling of what they think of Christians? “By having put their god on a crucifix as opposed to executing Satan, they not only have blasphemed against the Wisdom and Judgment of God Almighty, but reduced Him to a role of subservience to Satan.”
America? “America is no longer the home of the free and the land of the brave. The constitution and the Bill of Rights are just pieces of paper that don’t mean a damn thing anymore, unless you are white and an anti-Muslim hatemonger of course.”
Violence? “We must put a stop to the violence and aggression against our peoples by force if necessary. We must work with each other and collectively refuse to accept the injustice and aggression of the West and its protégé, Israel.”
Naive American citizens of all faiths, government officials and of course our media obviously embrace this crap. I guess the desire to be known as a bridge-builder is more important than confronting extremism, and the fear of being called Islamaphobic is more important than protecting our culture and national security.
Here’s what the course of action should be:
First, how ‘bout we freeze their assets, and take their property. We then have our military empty these camps and towns and peacefully escort them all out of this country and back to their 7th century cave dwelling lifestyles, and then put the names of every man, woman and child on a no-fly list.
Second, if they refuse to leave peacefully, we air-strike first and then bulldoze their compounds.
This is America. We are Americans. We cannot allow this to continue on American soil. People who come here, who live here, must do so because they want to be American. We cannot co-exist in America with people who do not want to be American.
Osama bin Laden went through so much trouble, time, training and expense to bomb and terrorize, America into submission. And little did he know that all he had to do was buy property in America and start forming his own Islamic government. Apparently, it’s as simple as that. The guy wasn’t too bright after all, now, was he?
