Will Hating Muslims Lead Them to Jesus?


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:

  1. Please see this, for instance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3szXUmZPks

    Or this, following a WHITE Briton deliberately driving into Muslims coming out of a Mosque: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/19/dont-touch-hero-imam-saved-life-suspect-terror-attack/

    Rather than standing by and allowing others to beat the driver to death, the Iman protected him from attack! He showed more humanity and compassion than the white racist did. It cuts both ways!!! We need to make distinctions.

    Jude 1:22 “On some have compassion, making a distinction….”

  2. Sorry, but I posted twice. The shorter one was by email. What i really intended was the longer comment I just made on the website. Could you delete the first one. Thanks.

  3. Tim, thanks for letting me know Bill actually “published” my comment. I guess the message I got about the post not going through was an advisory about some technical problem, subsequently cleared up.

    And Marleen, (again) you go, girl ! Your quotation from Isaiah (“Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy”) was, and is, spot-on.

    Blessing to all here !

  4. Thanks Tricia, there is far too much fear of Muslims generated by some – mainly for political reasons.
    That whipped up fear is a hindrance to the gospel, particularly the sharing of the gospel with Muslims, who elsewhere it seems are coming to Christ in large numbers.
    The majority of Muslims are peace loving generous people (as shown at the YouTube link you gave) and yet they are too often all tarred with the same extremist brush.

    Also, a comparison of deaths in America due to mass shootings by non-Muslims, with deaths in America at the hand of Islamic extremists, gives a much TRUER picture.

    Hi Steve, my own comments now don’t even get to the moderation stage. I’ve been completely blocked from commenting. I can type something in the comment box, but when I try to submit it, the whole lot disappears and I’m taken back to the beginning of the article.

  6. Thanks, Steve.

    It’s good to hear from you Tricia.

    I love the statement near the end of the video you posted (new thread), Tim, about evangelism, that it’s actually God’s plan that, what was it, the wolf will be defeated by a bunch of sheep.

  7. The tower fire was very sad, Tricia. I’m glad the people are helping each other. The story on the video (the knocking on doors, etc.) was something I hadn’t heard yet. Thank you.

    On the other topic, that’s some heavy-duty punching.
    Hard to think that would kill somebody. I guess there was some
    adrenalin involved, and then the kicking too.

  8. Tricia, I’ve been thinking about your quotation again, from Jude 1:22,
    about making distinctions. Sadly, the “distinctions” largely being
    made most often and “easily” (based on perverted minds, in
    ruts that seem no longer able to think or feel) are wrong
    kinds… as if might and wealth are what we seek most…

    … the very “respecting” of “persons” we are warned of…
    http://biblehub.com/ezekiel/28-6.htm (preceded by lines
    that would fit in a modern film of irony and satire)

    ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,

    “Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods In the heart of the seas’; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God– 3Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you.

    4″By your wisdom and understanding You have acquired riches for yourself And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.

    5″By your great wisdom, by your trade You have increased your riches And your heart is lifted up because of your riches —6Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Because you have made your heart Like the heart of God, 7Therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you,
    The most ruthless of the nations. And they will draw their swords
    Against the beauty of your wisdom
    And defile your splendor.…

    (Thus,
    people like our president favor the rich, including Muslim nations who are rich {despite statements, seemingly totalizing as to Islam, words useful in getting votes and support from religious pawns}.)

  9. 12 These people are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. 13 They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.

    14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken ….” 16 These people … follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.

    …. 19 These are the people who … follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

    20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

    22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear…..

  10. To him who is able to keep you from stumbling– and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy (to the only God) –our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority.

    Through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
