“International Burn a Koran Day”: The Christian Response

As long as the rest of the world continues to walk on eggshells for fear of “offending” and “inflaming” Muslims, one concession after another will be made to this violent religion by weak-kneed politicians.  Like a schoolyard bully, everyone tiptoes around Islam because they are too afraid to stand up to it.  Until someone has the courage to stand up to the bully, he will continue to get his way.  Islamic madmen know that they can get the west to back down merely by threatening violence.  But a line has to be drawn in the sand.  The Muslim aggressors have to be told, in no uncertain terms, that they will not be treated with kid gloves by western governments when their citizens are threatened or attacked by Muslims; and that the west will not cave in to Islamic threats and intimidation.  And if the Islamic world doesn’t like it, well then, as they say: too bad.

But alas, the west is too weak, too lily-livered, to stand up to Islam.  So it won’t happen, at least not now.

And note this as well: although there has been an international outcry, from leaders of various religions as well as various politicians, against this pastor’s call for Koran-burning, where are the similar cries of outrage against the ongoing, widespread, vicious persecution of Christians in one Muslim country after another?  There is a deafening silence.  The world screams when one misguided man calls for Korans to be burned, yet says nothing when Muslims massacre Christians in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Egypt, Sudan, and other Islamic lands.  It is happening every week, every month, every year – and the world says and does nothing.  There is no true religious freedom in any Islamic country.  Islam demands that non-Muslims respect its book and allow it every freedom in non-Islamic countries, and yet denies Christians in Islamic countries the same treatment it self-righteously demands for itself!

Christians!  Be very aware of this monstrous religion’s mission, and of how it operates.  If you are citizens of a non-Islamic country, by all means use such legal avenues as you have to resist the encroachment of this insidious religio-political system.  And above all, preach the Gospel of the grace of God to the Muslim people!  It is advancing, day by day, year by year, throughout the world.   Mohammed was a man of war, but Christ is the Prince of peace.  Mohammed’s fanatical followers are very willing to use the physical sword to advance their religion, but Christ’s true followers make use of the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  Pray, witness; preach; and live a life that is glorifying to the Lord in this world of sin and darkness.
