I’m blocked from commenting on Bill Randle’s’ site, so I want to use this post to address something said on his blog.
In recent articles Randles has been lamenting how the “West” has abandoned Judeo-Christian influences and has taken a too welcoming approach to Muslims, something he sees as a threat to Western values and security.
When Steve (a frequent commenter on my blog) questioned what Randles had written with regard to Muslims, another commenter, in support of Randles’ assertions, said:
This is about Islam, not Muslims…
But Bill Randles’ post doesn’t reflect that “Islam not Muslim” claim.
Within Randles’ article the following statements ABOUT MUSLIMS were included.
Evidently, the “new normal” for our once secure nations, is carnage in the streets, broken bodies of men, women and children, streaming with blood and broken toys, courtesy of “immigrant guests” from third world countries, usually Muslim
These leaders have dumped upon their taxpaying populations, millions of miserable, ungrateful and downright murderous Muslims,
…a five year old special needs child was attacked, raped and humiliated by three of her “Muslim immigrant” neighbors
…sexually harassed and raped by savages from Muslim lands
Muslims will continue to be “welcomed” into our societies, so we can wait for the next outrage.
I have to ask, how profitable is this kind of rhetoric against non-Christians?
Muslims also need Jesus and are able to seek and find Him – but why would they want to seek the truth of the gospel if they think posts like Randles’ article are an example of it?
In closing I’d like to ask you to make a comparison between the attitudes expressed in Randles’ articles and those I’ve recommended in some of my earlier posts, such as those linked below, and think about which more closely reflect a Christlike viewpoint:
