A Fifth Letter to America

The recent Islamic Terrorist attack in California brought out the usual reaction from American politicians and others.  Some immediately blamed guns and suggested more gun laws, ignoring the fact that it is ungodly humans who pull the trigger.

When the perpetrators turned out to be Islamic, the question they wanted answered was, how did they get radicalized?   Like if they didn’t know!

Historians tell us that Prophet Mohammed respected both the Jewish and the Christians and that he told his followers to leave them alone (don’t try to convert them), because they already knew God.  So obviously, He believed in the Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel).

However, later things changed, so that now, The Koran (Qur’an), contains such things as, “Kill them [the infidels, namely Christians and Jews] wherever you may come upon them, and seize them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every conceivable place.”-Sura 9:5

So the Prophet’s love of the Living God has now been turned into hatred against God’s Chosen People, the Jews and Christians, and the rest of the world.  Now the Muslim Brotherhood says, “Our mission: world domination.”  Some Muslim slogans are, “Death to America,” “Kill the Jews,” “Kill the Unbelievers.”

Yes America.  Islam is serious when they say, “death to America.” To them it is death to everyone who doesn’t follow their God.  That is not exactly what the Living God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob commanded.  His commandments were, “Thou shall not kill,” and “Love thy neighbor.”

Sadly, God’s plan for salvation, through the forgiveness of Man’s sin, by the shedding of His precious Son’s blood, has been rejected by Islam.  Instead, they tell their followers the path to Heaven is by killing those who do not believe in Allah, and that by doing so, 70 family members will win entrance to Heaven too.  And some ask for a motive!!

Lest we forget, America too has rejected God and His Word (Jesus Christ our Lord).
