President Obama gave a speech to the UN that some have characterized as patently anti-Christian. It certainly reflects a very confused and naive worldview. This is a dangerous mindset for our “Commander in Chief” that simply does not take into account the realities of human nature and the historic actions of Muslims in the name of Mohammed.
Does Obama really believe that the people that murdered and tortured US Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens are going to repent and renounce Islam and their prophet?
In his speech, Obama appeals to the great, biblical principals of our founding.
We believe that freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. These are not simply American values or Western values; they are universal values. And even as there will be huge challenges to come with the transition to democracy, I am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity, and individual opportunity that serve as a basis for peace in our world.
Obama is not alone in his view that we can create constitutional republics around the world. President Bush apparently believed this too. The problem is not the desire for biblical justice, or that our principles are misguided. But, in order for liberty to take root it must be based in the worldview of a super majority of the people of any country.
History shows that Islam simply cannot produce the right worldview for liberty. "Secular" Muslim governments aren’t really secular. For example, the laws of Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, are based on Dutch law which was shaped by Christianity.
Muslim countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia have not shown the willingness to stop the militants in their midst from following Mohammed’s example of violence. In some countries like Iran and Egypt the militants now rule.
Violent Jihadists killed Amb. Stevens in Libya and are killing our soldiers in Afghanistan. Disguised as our partners, they have infiltrated the military and the police in Afghanistan and are killing our sons. Joint patrols have had to stop because of the murder of our soldiers by our “friends.”
Anywhere that Islam is taken seriously it does not produce liberty. Islam is systemically violent and hateful. Equality as we conceive of it is rejected by Mohammed’s faithful disciples. The jihadists want 7th Century Islamic Sharia law.
That’s why only ruthless dictators could impose stability in the Middle East. Now that these dictators have been removed the Middle East will come unhinged. Race, tribalism, sectarianism and extremism will rear its vicious head. Unfortunately, it’s the women and Christians who will suffer the most.
WHAT’S OBAMA’S SOLUTION?
At time, the conflicts arise along the fault lines of race or tribe, and often they arise from the difficulties of reconciling tradition and faith with the diversity and interdependence of the modern world. In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening. In every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask themselves how much they're willing to tolerate freedom for others. And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.
Obama has been accused of being the “apologist in chief” for the way he blames America. So, after a murderous pre-planned 9/11 attack on our embassies that the State Department was warned about, Obama blamed an obscure, poorly produced movie trailer about Mohammed.
According to Obama, the movie “must be rejected” and is an insult to Muslims and America? What a bunch of convoluted tommyrot. “Common humanity” should reject the murderous, perverted teachings and actions of Mohammed that the movie attempts to expose, albeit in a very amateurish fashion.
The movie is no insult to America. It is a movie about Mohammed based on Islam’s own holy books. Muslims are embarrassed and rightly so. If it was ever found out that Jesus Christ was a murderous pervert Christians would renounce their faith in disgust. The fact that Muslims continue to call Mohammed their “holy” prophet shows just how morally benighted they truly are.
Mohammed and Muslims have attacked Christ, Christianity and mercilessly killed Christians and Jews from its inception. Over 250 million people have been killed in the murderous name of Mohammed. I haven’t heard Muslims utter even one word of apology; rather I hear them chant, “Death to Israel; Death to America.” But, it’s all our fault, according to Obama.
Obama lectures us that, “In every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask themselves how much they're willing to tolerate freedom for others.” Well, I’ve never been in a church that has chanted death to anyone. Obviously Obama was talking to Muslims. Wrong.
Obama expects Christians to shut up while we let Muslims denigrate our Lord and our faith while persecuting our Christian brothers and sisters and women, all in the name of tolerance.
Obama expects Christians not to point out the perverse and vicious actions of Mohammed because Muslims might get their feelings hurt. Muslims threaten us with death and we are supposed to reward that behavior with cowed silence?
Mohammed declared jihad against the whole world 1400 years ago. This has not changed. Muslim’s have no interest in coexisting or assimilating with our Christian ideals of equality and liberty. Appeasement and weakness only emboldens them. Do you think they will become less demanding and more accommodating if we give in to them?
The Bible clearly teaches the destiny of Islam. It comes out of the seed of Ishmael.
"Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the Lord has heard your affliction. 12 He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren." (Genesis 16:11-12)
According to Obama, "the future does not belong to those who slander Islam." According to the Bible, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! The future belongs to Christ, not to Mohammed. We cannot refrain from declaring that truth.
Brave Christians have defeated Islam in the past. Charles Martell and Jan Sobieski conquered the Muslim hordes in their day. They saved Europe from the fate of North Africa and the Middle East.
Are we still the land of the free and the home of the brave? Or, do we whimper in fear before the vicious seed of Ishmael? As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord Jesus and live and die as free men with no apologies.
