Is The World Violent Because It's God Is A Mass Murderer?


"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." Romans 1:20


There you have it. Just look at His creatures then, and you will see the Holy God. Something seems to have gone wrong with that idea! Are we in a spiritual war between good and evil? Maybe an evil, dark spiritual force is in control of all of creation much of the time?Everywhere I look I do not see anything but survival quests among all creatures! It seems like every creatures is just dinner for some other creatures.Butterflies are cute, but they make a great meal also, for certain birds!

Humanity claims to be building a world which will find peace. Humanity will find destruction instead. You cannot kill to find peace. You must rather be ready to die to find peace, in Christ. If the Christian war against evil is really not spiritual after all, then everything Christ and His disciples died for is in vain. The multiple thousands of Christians who have been tortured and martyred in Christ's name all died in vain. Also, we have no hope of peace ever coming to this world.
“For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.”  1Thessalonians 5:3 NKJV

Islamic Jihad Fought With Money, Not Just The Sword

"And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah . And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do" Quran 8:39
Jihad does not mean holy war, although it includes holy war. Jihad actually means struggle, which is a much better way to see it because jihad includes much more than war with violence. Jihad can be done with the sword, the mouth, the pen and with money. The Koran calls jihad-- fighting in Allah's cause.

The Koran lays out the vision of jihad. The Sira

(Mohammed's biography) lays out the grand strategy of jihad. The hadith (the Traditions) give us the tactics-all the small details about what needs to be done. And of course all of these things are modeled upon Mohammed, because Mohammed is not only the perfect Muslim, but also the perfect jihadist. You can see how important jihad is when you read Mohammed's biography the Sira. Jihad takes up about three quarters of the Sira.

There was only a nine-year period in which he pursued intense jihad but the number of pages that are devoted to it gives you an idea of how important it was. The importance is this: Mohammed, the man, the preacher, the religious man, did not succeed until he turned to jihad. It's only natural that Muslims would look to jihad as their most successful strategy and therefore record the most about it.


Now let's take care of one issue. Muslims frequently say, ' Well, the real jihad is inner struggle, the spiritual struggle." That is the Greater Jihad. The jihad of the sword and war is the Lesser Jihad. But the hadith tell us about the greater jihad --the inner spiritual struggle. But only 3% of the hadith are devoted to this kind of struggle. The other 97% are about killing the kafir. Is jihad the inner struggle? Yes. Is jihad killing the kafir? Yes. Notice again we have a duality. Source

Religious Violence Continues In The Middle East

The fact is there will be no peace in the Middle East. As one tyrant is overthrown a worse one takes his place throughout the whole area.It has been this way forever it seems,and it will get much worse. We spend billions in these countries in an effort to bring democracy and stability, but we are wasting our money and military personnel. So, what is at the root of this problem?

It does not take a genius to see the cause of this problem. Militant Islamic extremism is the number one cause of all of the world’s terrorist problems. If you do not believe it just follow the world news. Islamic extremists will never be happy with a secular democracy such as the one we enjoy in the USA and other countries. I am not saying we have a perfect government, but we enjoy an awesome freedom here.
'We're being slaughtered': Syrian protesters tell Arab League observers

No religion will bring peace to the world. They bring kaos & confusion instead. If you really want peace leave all religion behind and seek the peace that fills hearts. Let your thoughts transcend above the religions and receive yours now. Maybe it is not to late for us after all.

Update 01/24/2012:
Here is what I was talking about. Democracy at work in Iraq. Islam and Democracy do not seem to be compatable.The religion is split and at war. I think the apostate Christian religion is just as violent though!! Defying every teaching of Jesus, they build up a huge military force to "save themselves." Proving themselves to be cowards and worse than infidels!

The assaults come a year after a series of Christmas Eve bombings in Jos claimed by the militants left at least 32 dead and 74 wounded....more at MSNBC

Female Genital Circumcision


WHY IS THE PROCEDURE CARRIED OUT:

In order to reduce sexual desire in the female, maintain chastity and virginity before marriage and fidelity during marriage, and increase male sexual pleasure.

To conform with the social norm - those who don't conform are likely to be stigmatised.

To initiate girls into womanhood, social integration and the maintenance of social cohesion.

Some African Muslims believe that cutting is required by Islam and fulfils a religious obligation, however the practice predates both Islam and Christianity.

This uncivilized procedure is also practiced in Egypt by both "Christians" and Muslims. It is a barbaric procedure which seems to have originated before either religion was born


Female genital mutilation is classified into four major types



1.Clitoridectomy: partial or total removal of the clitoris (a small, sensitive and erectile part of the female genitals) and, in very rare cases, only the prepuce (the fold of skin surrounding the clitoris).
 
2..Excision: partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora (the labia are "the lips" that surround the vagina).
 
3.Infibulation: narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and repositioning the inner, or outer, labia, with or without removal of the clitoris.
 
4.Other: all other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, e.g. pricking, piercing, incising, scraping and deadening the genital area.
 
It is time for the civilized world to come together and stop these crimes against humanity
 
Women rights activists from the National Commission on Violence against Women (Komnas Perempuan) urged the Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih to immediately revoke a ministerial regulation against female circumcision as it legitimizes violence against Indonesian women. It may also neglect the women’s abilities to fully exercise their fundamental rights on reproductive health and freedom considering the cruel circumcision techniques practiced in several regions in Indonesia.

Soraya M., Stoned to Death for Being an "Inconvenient Wife"



Iran Infuriated Over Stoning Movie


As a Christian I am deeply concerned with the crimes religions often impose upon as many of us as they can. That is why I loved this movie so much. This movie gives such a great example of how religion can keep us in the stone ages.Sharia law is what many would love to impose upon the whole world, and indeed plan to do. More on this real life story here.Watch the full movie on Netflix if you have an account.

In those Muslim countries where Islam is the official religion listed in the constitution, sharia is declared to be a source, or the source, of the laws. Examples include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, and the United Arab Emirates, where the governments derive their legitimacy from Islam.
 
In Pakistan, Egypt, Iran, and Iraq, among others, it is also forbidden to enact legislation that is antithetical to Islam. Saudi Arabia employs one of the strictest interpretations of sharia. Women are not allowed to drive, are under the guardianship of male relatives at all times, and must be completely covered in public. Elsewhere, governments are much more lenient, as in the United Arab Emirates, where alcohol is tolerated. Non-Muslims are not expected to obey sharia and in most countries, they are the jurisdiction of special committees and adjunct courts under the control of the government.
