Muslims gaining political power in Belgium

Rate This Article

Its called creeping Sharia. Remember those words because you are going to be hearing it more and more.

Muslims are forming a political party in Belgium, and have even won a elected seat.

After Muslims gain a political power, its just a matter of time before sharia law will be established.

This is what happens when people migrate to an area and refuse to integrate into the already established society. Muslims will try to setup a legal system that matches their beliefs, but is incompatible with already established laws.

Before long we will be seeing Sharia law controlled zones inside urban areas. This is already happening in parts of London. Its just a matter of time before the sharia law movement inches its way into the rest of Europe.

Our weakness is that we accommodate those who refuse to accommodate us.

That weakness will result in cracks in our society.

How long until we see churches being burned and bombed in Europe and the USA?

How long until people realize there is a war being waged? Instead of being half a world away, this war is right in front of us. Instead of a war of bullets and bombs, its a war of ideology and religion.

A Nation Greatly Divided

Rate This Article

There is an interesting article in the LA Times – Mitt Romney leads a party packed with paranoids and fabulists. The word fabulists simply means liars. In other words, the republican party is filled with paranoid liars.

The cartoon shows an older couple compared to a younger couple. With the younger couple wearing an obama pin.

A few days ago there was a news program talking about how the younger generations are growing more liberal, while the older conservatives are fading away. For example, for the first time in history, less then 50% of the voters say they are Protestant Christians.

Not only is the nation divided by political parties, we are also divided by liberalism and conservatism, and we are divided by religion, or rather the lack of religion.

Where is this trend of a growing liberal population going to take the United States? It is going to financially bankrupt the US.

Differences between conservatives and liberals

The heart of conservationism is the belief that people should take responsibility for their actions.  Isn’t that the way its always been?  Steal a horse and you get hung, its pretty simple.  Do not work, and you shall not eat, sounds good to me.

How radical Islam spreads hate

Rate This Article

Back in the mid-1990s my wife and I were driving through a poor section of port arthur Texas. There is a welding supply store near the port of port arthur, but to get to that area you have to go through a poor section.

I needed a part for my job, we went to the welding supply store and bought what I needed.

On the way home we stopped at a red light where some blacks (nicely dressed) were handing out papers. I rolled down my window and asked for a paper. The guy would not even look at me, he looked to the side and handed me the paper.

When my wife and I got home I looked at the paper. It was a newspaper filled with racial hate articles pointed towards whites.

There was a cartoon in the paper that showed a couple of people dressed up like the KKK putting bandannas, drugs, guns and beer on a table.

The second image of the cartoon showed a couple of black guys walking to the table.

The third and fourth images were the black guys putting on the bandannas, drinking, taking drugs, then finally killing each other with the guns that were on the table.

In the images, the two klan members were in the background laughing at the blacks.

The caption under the cartoon said something like “do not fall for the tricks of the whiteman”,,, or something like that.

What does this say about a Islam when they blame others for their lack of self-control? Did the klan members in the cartoon “make” the blacks drink, take drugs and shoot each other? No they did not. Those actions were a choice.

Violence as Intimidation

Then there is the shooting of a 14-year-old activist in Pakistan.

What kind of sick people shoot a 14 year old girl, and then try to justify their actions with religion?

Free speech and freedom of religion

Rate This Article

Over the past few days there has been a lot of talk on the internet about freedom of speech, and how that speech might anger certain religious groups.

If you are offended by what someone says about your religion, too bad.  Being offended does not grant you special rights.  Being offended does not grant you the right to restrict the rights of others.

UNITED NATIONS – United Nations Secretary – General Ban Ki-moon told reporters in New York today that “free speech” has limits, especially when religious beliefs are involved.

“All of this freedom of expression should not be abused by individuals. … Some people abuse this freedom. This effort to provoke, to humiliate others by using (religious) beliefs cannot be protected in such a way.”

I am going to guess that United Nations Secretary – General Ban Ki-moon was referring to the movie “Innocence of the Muslims” and the cartoons published by a French newspaper.

What about the Jews and Muslims that offend other religions? I guess the Jews and Muslims get a free pass? As long as its Christians being insulted, then nobody cares? When Muslims kill Christians, or when Muslims burn a church, then that is ok?

Foxnews has a news article about a man who renounced Islam and became a Christian.  The man was arrested and sentenced to death.

Sharia law VS freedom of speech

Rate This Article

If we speak out against Islam, the followers of sharia law are supposed to kill us.

So what are we supposed to do, quietly submit to Sharia law and Islam? I do not think so.

As usual, Acts17Apologetics has posted another excellent video on the sharia law issue.

After the video “innocence of the muslims” hit main stream, a wide array of people started calling for restrictions on our freedom of speech.

Not only should we have freedom of religion, but we should also freedom “from” religion. By submitting to restrictions on insulting islam, we are submitting to a religion.

The question you need to ask yourself, do you want to live under sharia law? If we are prohibited from insulting islam, what is next? If you are willing to submit to restricted freedom of speech, what else are you willing to submit to?

Are you willing to submit to women not being able to drive?
Are you willing to submit to women not being allowed in school?
Are you willing to submit to being put to death for cheating on your spouse?
Are you willing to have your hand cut off for stealing?
Are gays willing to be put to death for being gay?

At what point is society willing to draw the line for sharia law?

2012 Elections

Well, it seems Mitt Romney stuck his foot in his mouth by saying Obama supporters see themselves as victims, and that Obama appeals to voters who do not pay taxes.

In other words, the people who vote for Obama are lower class and live off welfare.

Yep, I pretty much agree.

Its like the lady during the 2008 election that said if Obama is elected, she will not have to worry about her mortgage.

World War of Religion

Rate This Article

Time has an interesting article saying the world war of jihad is almost over. Osama bin Laden is dead, Al-Qaeda leaders are being killed with drone strikes, it finally looks like we have beat back the enemy.

The problem is, who is the enemy? While Al-Qaeda might be losing ground, radical Muslims continue to spread to Europe, Canada and the United States.

Al-Qaeda was based on an idea, ideas are much harder to kill the people. What was one of the driving factors behind Al-Qaeda? Islam.

Whether you like it or not, the war of religion is taking a different route. It is impossible for a group is peasants operating out of caves to bring about the downfall of Europe and the U.S. But what they can do, if infiltrate our society and use our own laws against us.

Over the next few years, maybe the next decade or so, expect to see the term “creeping sharia”. Its where sharia law slowly creeps into a society.

France passed a law saying Muslim women who covered their face must show their face and identification to a police officer when requested. When a Muslim woman refused to show her face to a police officer, the officer went to arrest her. The woman bit the officer and said she did not follow the laws of France.

Bottomless pit in the book of revelations

Rate This Article

Revelation 9:1-2 “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”

I have spent a good part of my adult life wondering what the “bottomless pit” was. How can something be absolutely “bottomless?” The world is not without end. If you dig a hole deep enough, you are going to reach the other side of the planet.

The answer I have come up with, the bottomless pit is not really “bottomless.” What is using to fill the hole never fills it.

Maybe we are looking at the pit in the wrong direction? Instead of thinking about the pit as a bottomless pit, lets think about what is being used to fill the pit.

Its like when someone is eating, someone else might make a reference as to where all of the food is going. To the observer it “looks” like the person doing the eating has a bottomless pit for a stomach.

Maybe the bottomless pit is a reference to something that can not be being filled?

The next question is, filled with what?

Maybe the bottomless pit is in reference to a death pit that will never be filled.

During the black Death of 1348 – 1350 pits were dug, filled with the dead, covered with soil, another pit was dug, filled, covered,,,, until the plague reached its filled and stopped killing.

What fills the pit is hunger.  Since the hunger will be never ending, the pit will never be filled.

In other words, could the bottomless pit be in reference to something that kills a good part of humanity?  Something that keeps killing and killing and killing.  something with a hunger for death that will never be satisfied.

What this something is, I do not know.

Christianity will be replaced by Islam

Rate This Article

My heart hurts to say this, but Christianity is dying. The number of people attending church has been dropping over the past few decades. More young people then ever before are declaring themselves to be atheist. Organizations like the ACLU and atheist groups are waging an all out war on religion in the public sector.

Christianity is being driven underground, and in some cases to extinction, by anti-religion zealots.

This is where Islam comes in. Where Christians usually respect court orders, sharia law does not recognize man-made laws.

When asked about taxes, Christ said “render until Caesar what is Caesars.” In other words, respect the government and abide by the laws.

In contrast to Christ teachings, Islam would have never recognized Caesar as a leader, much less respected the laws that Caesar passed. The only law is sharia law, period.

Christ taught us to love one another.

Islam teaches its followers to kill anyone that disrespects Islam and/or Allah.

Qur’an (5:51) – O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.

Qur’an (3:85) – And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.

Quran (4:76) – Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah.

Where would humanity be without religion

Rate This Article

Over the past few decades there has been a move away from religion. The mindset seems to be, who needs religion when we have science?

Science does not unify people under a common idea, science does not teach a code of morals and values. How many atheist charities are there compared to religion based charities? When a family needs assistance, does the local atheist take up donations?

Where would society be today if religion never existed? I figure we would still be in the iron age, or about 20% behind where we are today.

100,000 – 8,000 years ago

Something happened around 6,000 or 8,000 years ago that made mankind stop roaming the countryside looking for food. What made mankind set down the seeds of civilization? We raised livestock, we planted gardens, we formed communities, we formed nations, we formed governments.  Why did it take humanity over 100,000 years to go from hunter gathers, to building nations?

Why was mankind on the planet for 100,000 years, then all of a sudden there was a growth on society in the past 6,000 years? What about the other 94,000 years? What happened for society not to develop?

Why did humanity all of a sudden develop over the past 4,000 – 8,000 years?

Why didn’t we have cities and government 50,000 years ago?

What changed between 100,000 years ago, and 6,000 years ago?

Our modern human civilization began when we moved from a hunter / gatherer, to a farmer / gardener.

The Survivalist Monastery Theory

Rate This Article

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistWhile reading “The Civilization Of The Middle Ages” by Norman Cantor (which I do not recommend the book by the way), on pages 150, 151, 152, 153, 154,,, the author discusses how monasteries became a source of education in the middle ages.  Monasteries were not well rounded education establishments, as they were only interested in teaching Latin and scripture.  Creating literature outside of the Holy scripture was suppressed.

One thing that monasteries did do, they preserved scripture.  One of the reasons why we have certain books in our modern Holy Bible, is because some scribe copied the books during the the middle ages.

Monasteries preserved scripture.  The monks in the monasteries taught people how to read Latin, and thus how to read scripture.

How does this monk, monastery and scripture stuff tie in with survivalism?

As monks taught holy scripture, so should survivalist teach self-reliance.

As a survivalist, it is your duty to go forth and spread the knowledge of self-reliance.

When people hear the word “monk”, thoughts of living in silence, or roaming the country side preaching the gospel to peasants comes to mind. That is not how things were like. Monks lived in the monastery, some tried to isolate themselves from the outside world, they were educated, copied holy text (scribes), and tried to live a life separated from the outside world.

How is the life of a monk, and the life of a survivalist that much different?

Maybe this should be called “The Survivalist Monk Theory”?

For the sake of discussion, lets focus on the effect we have on those around us, and not what fills our head.

Where a monk may have spent a great deal of time in prayer, he also had a profound effect on society. As survivalist, what effect do we have on those around us? Opsec says we have to always consider security when dealing with others. Let us apply the idea of a monastery to our group.

Everyone inside the walls of the monastery are the people inside our group. These are the people that we can talk to, communicate with and share our plans with.

Everyone outside the walls of our monastery are the strangers. Those are the people we do not know, or fully trust.

While a monastery had walls of brick and mortar, survivalist have walls of trust and relationships.

Just as monks educated the people inside the monastery, so should survivalist train and educate the people inside their group.

Unlike monks that tried to isolate themselves from the outside world, survivalist stay knowledgeable on current events.

The monastery is part of society, but also separate. We live on the fringe of society, on the outskirts, ever visible, but in the distance, just a blink from sight.

Most hated book in the world

survivalistWhat is the most hated book in the world? I would have to say the Bible.

Why is the bible hated? Because it speaks the truth. The undeniable truth that we should love one another.

Why do so many people try to discredit the bible

When we have a limited amount of information from a time period, and that information is discredited, what are we left with?

If we discredited Caesar’s commentaries on the Gallic wars, what would we be left with? Are we to say the commentaries are a work of fiction? How do we prove the Gallic wars ever happened? Besides writing, what do we have to prove that Julius Caesar ever lived?

Why don’t people dispute Buddha like they do Jesus?

Why don’t people dispute George Washington like they do Jesus?

As far as we know, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were elaborate myths constructed by people at the time.

Why do so many people try to disprove the bible, and call Jesus into question? Because their hearts are filled with anger and hatred.

The bible is held to a different set of standards then other history books.

The question is, why do so many people try to discredit the bible, but other works are accepted as fact?

Why do people hate the bible

In the minds of the elitist, the human race is the highest ranking species there is. We are the smartest and the most advanced species to ever walk the face of the earth.

To admit that there is a higher being would crash their little arrogant universe. Having to admit there is a GOD would be an insult to the arrogant hordes.

The fool hath said in his heart, there is no GOD. To deny GOD is to deny hope, hope that all we live for is the here and now.

Sharia Law in London and the coming battlefield

Rate This Article

Over the past year, maybe 2 years, I have been hearing about how certain groups are calling for sharia law to be imposed in places like London. The problem I see, London already has its own set of laws.

And I thought Catholics and Pentecostals were pushy with their religions.

It seems that Europe is going to be a battlefield of not only religion, but also for ideology. Our democratic society, our tolerance and our kindness is going to be our downfall.

Over the past few decades there has been a change of mindset that we (people of European decent) should be tolerate of others. But what happens when others are not tolerate of us? What happens when a group of people show up in a city, and say “we are going to establish our own laws”.

I wonder if Europe is going to be where some kind of religious holy war starts. In World War II there were the nazis; in the next war will religions be fighting against each other?

Back in the 1960s people in the US thought there was going to be a race war between the blacks and whites. The federal government passed laws, and those laws were enforced. 40+ years later, blacks and whites live in peace with each other.

But what happens when a group of people believe it is their destiny to rule the world? Instead of forming an army and conquering nations, people are mobilized and laws are changed. To change a government, all you have to do is change the laws.

The only thing I wish to see, if for religions to live in peace with one another.

September 11 Koran Book Burning

Rate This Article

I’am pretty sure just about everyone has heard of the planned September 11 Koran book burning. After all, its been on the world news for the past week, its been on the radio, youtube,,, just about everywhere you go, there people talking about the plan to burn 100s of Korans.

Here is my take on the issue, and its a double edged knife:

1 – Maybe it needs to be done. If people are going to attack the USA in the name of Islam, then we should have the right to protest against Islam. How do you protest something? You burn its symbol. This is no different then people in the middle east burning the American flag.

2 – On the other hand, burning the Koran could further damage Christian / Muslim relations. Let us be the better person, stand up, and turn the other cheek.

3 – The Koran is a holy book. From what I understand, it mentions the virgin Mary more times then the Bible does. Out of respect for religion as a whole, lets not burn the Koran.

My personal opinion – I have to favor not burning the Koran, it just seems like a bad thing to do. There are good and bad people in everything we do – there are good Christians, and there are bad Christians, just like there are good and bad Muslims and good and bad Jews.

In the town I live in, there are several gas stations owned by Muslims – I have not met a single one I did not like. Just about every Muslim I have ever met has been friendly, and has extended their hand in peace and friendship.
