I recently read the following:
(Note: Below was a post from FB. I’m deleting the name to protect the fool that wrote it….)
“What do people who reject the God of the Bible become? In America they have become the Liberal/Left Socialists. In Russia and China they became Communists. How about those who create another God, what do they become? In the Middle East they have become Muslims who enslave, torture and behead people.The choice of who to become is so crystal clear. It really only depends on who you want to be and how you want to live. It doesn’t take any imagination at all…the evidence is all around us.”
My response is as follows:
A) The president of a Virginia Ku Klux Klan group claims that “the KKK is a faith-based Christian organization that does not condone violence.”
B) The oldest reference to Allah (“God” Islam/Muslim) – was discovered in Northern and Southern Arabia dating back to the fifth century B.C. To state that all Muslims enslave, torture and behead is beyond radical. Muhammad was a peaceful prophet.
C) Buddhism was founded in 624 B.C. Buddha was a peaceful prophet.
They all had their “God” and Prophets and Bibles and martyrs to the faith, long before the Christian Bible.
Also, to claim that all non-Christian bible thumpers (NOT non-Christians, mind you) are Liberals/Socialists is incorrect. However, I do think it might be a great compliment: If not for the Socialists of this country our forefathers and children would not have the Unions – which protected the middle class and poor during the industrial revolution through today. Also, the Socialist Party has no combined or recognized affiliation with Communism.
To be so pompous and self-righteous as to state that one’s beliefs are more correct than another’s beliefs is purely ignorant. And, to attach misguided lies to support one’s superiority, or belief, is egocentric – not religious.
If I choose to believe that blue eye shadow is an abomination to me – does that mean that those who choose to wear it are wrong??
