LIVING UNDER A DELUSION!
In both the book of Jeremiah and Ezekiel false prophets are mentioned. Judah and Jerusalem chose to listen to the false prophets while ridiculing the true ones. Some found a lie more comforting than the truth. Some could not believe God would allow anything to happen to them. They sought comfort and confirmation from those who would tell them what they wanted to hear. Today is no different.
Some want to believe that Islam is a religion of peace. They don’t want to believe that Muslims define “peace” differently than they do. Recently, a new nationwide online survey was taken among Muslims here in the U.S. Here are some of the following results.
A majority (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah radically conflicts with U.S. law! One example is torture and death for all homosexuals.
More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or Shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply Shariah. Only 39% of those polled said Muslims should be subject to American courts.
Nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make Shariah the law in this country!! The findings of the Center for Security Policy’s survey of Muslims in America suggests that we have a serious problem. The Pew Research Center estimates that the number of Muslims in the United States was 2.75 million in 2011, and growing at a rate of 80-90 thousand a year. If those estimates are accurate, the United States would have approximately 3 million Muslims today. That would translate into roughly 300,000 Muslims living in the United States who believe “that Muslims must follow and impose WORLD WIDE JIHAD”! Isn’t that what ISIS is now doing? Our government admits that Muslims sympathetic to that group reside here in our country. Even in Tennessee there are Muslim training camps! Is Chattanooga another warning of that “worldwide Jihad” belief among the 300,000 or just another “little shooting”? In the past 7 months the FBI has spoiled 60 attempts by Muslims to exercise that violence.
But, who believes such reports?? Our Federal government tells us that we are safer now than we have ever been! Regardless of what protection men may promise, our ultimate trust must be in Jesus (Matthew 10:28; John 14:6, 27). Amen?
What is your belief system?
