What I Believe, Even Unto Science

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Not all men are created equal. Nor do they perform the same. Life has become quite menacing, in case you haven’t noticed. Whether it’s the last gasp of a dying planet all hepped up on the steroids of fear, or a natural and cyclical urge to cleanse the earth of vermin, this tragedy we have before us is not about race, art, religion. No. It’s the will to power in conflict with the will to purpose. And you don’t have to be a teleologist to accept those facts.

I did not write the following position, but in most places it pretty much sums up what I have come to believe after some 50 years of testing the spirits:

Twig by twig, we build a language...

IN CHRISTIANITY, THE SAVED follow the teachings of Jesus Christ—saved by Grace, through faith. Christians and Jewish martyrs say; “I will die for what I believe,” while Islamists say, “You will die for what I believe.” In Islam, the ‘saved’ are those who follow the teachings of their leader Mohammed, and only because he sewed seeds of violence is why today’s Islamic fruit reaps violence.

How can a religion (seed), conceived (planted) by violence, and preached by a murderer (nourished), have a peaceful (fruitful) future (harvest)? If you mix flour, cocoa, sugar, and oil, you get a chocolate cake. If you mix violence – murder, rape, plunder—with religion, you get Islamists. And if you claim visions from God to justify your violence, you do not come as a prophet of peace, but rather you come to destroy peace—you are a “messenger of satan” and you have been deceived.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” (Galatians 6:7-8)

Indeed. Falsehood is always the deception upon which truth emerges at critical times in human history to rearrange or reinterpret the syntax.

Today we hear on radio and television many Muslim clerics saying that Islam means peace. But the word Islam means ‘submission’ and a Muslim is one who is in submission to allah. Their goal, as stated in the Qu’ran, is to bring the entire world into submission to allah under a global, Islamic empire. And they believe before they can achieve this dream they must first destroy America and the western countries.

Nineteen educated Muslims representing a broad demographical base, committed suicide and killed thousands of innocent men, women, and children in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the four planes they flew on that black Tuesday. Those nineteen Muslims did that because of their deep conviction that they will go directly to paradise to enjoy sensual pleasures, and because of their terrible hatred for America; a country populated by a Christian majority.

These men were devout Muslims who were highly intelligent and demonstrated excellent communication skills with children, old men, professors, and people in government. Each of them successfully adapted to Western culture while secretly hating it. Mohammed Atta, in his October 1999 thesis, wrote the following verse from the Qu’ran:41

“My Prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death belong to allah, the Lord of the Worlds”

Followers of the al-Qaeda ideology have already shown what kind of government and what kind of society they pursue. Afghanistan had the dubious distinction of embodying that fundamentalist fantasy under Taliban rule where Qur’anic Law dictated every aspect of daily life, where thought and expression were strictly controlled, and where infractions against ancient religious codes were punished by beheadings. From Afghanistan we have been warned that the biggest losers from a fundamentalist victory will be non-Muslims and women—everyone else.

The number one enemy of Islamic radicals is modernity. And anything that moves society forward, away from their understanding of what life was like in 7th century Arabia, where Islam was born, is viewed as a threat. That’s one reason why Muslims and non-Muslims incorrectly view this as a conflict between East and West. Islamists view the West, led by the United States, as the tip of the modernity spear—and they are probably right. But most people in the Arab world do not want to live by 7th century rules. They may not want all that America stands for, but they do want human rights, economic opportunity, and progress.

The Muslim majorities (some 950 million)—tragically for them and dangerously for us—have failed to speak out against this campaign that is slaughtering their people and keeping desperately needed progress from reaching their lands. As the controversial Muslim writer Irshad Manji says, “the Muslim world has used the West—the so-called oppressive West—as a weapon of mass distraction for a long time.”

Muslims have been successfully intimidated. Voices of dissent have been silenced, and people who ‘devour’ the Western lifestyle in private, publicly speak out against America. And despite efforts to accommodate ‘the religion of peace,’ Islamists will continue to find reasons to hate and Muslims will continue to be the reason much of the world is at war. It is of great importance for any non-Muslim to know what kind of society he or she will live in if fundamentalist Muslims rule.

Is this our destiny, as scholars and exegetes predict? Is this next paragraph, dismissed for ages by learned and self-important men a mark of truth, or a mark of something sinister and impossible to reconcile with science and multicultural good will, as we know it?

It is clearly no secret that God forewarned His people about the violent nature of Ishmael and Esau’s descendants. Despite these truths, the Satanic ability to deceive will eventually lead Israel to drop her guard and sign a false peace treaty, which will begin the ‘Seven Year Tribulation’ period—man’s final reign on earth. Three and one-half years into this treaty the Muslims will be participants in a confederation invading Israel one last time fulfilling the prophecy of Ezekiel 35 and God’s wrath in judgment against their sword.

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Read it all.
