Scripture Dispels Deception!

Had another three days of bliss!  Why?  Because I wasn’t able to watch TV! I was busy helping my daughter and her husband unpack boxes after their move into a new home.  However, I did check my email on my phone each evening and I found myself reading various articles, blogs, and opinions in comment threads about Pam Geller’s “Draw Muhammad” event in Texas.  As many readers probably already know, two jihadists attempted to shoot up the conference near the end of the event, but both were shot and killed by a security officer hired by the event team.  Knowing about the killings that happened in France at the Charlie Hebdo offices, who could blame the event organizers for hiring extra security? As it turned out, it was a good thing they did!

I have been amazed at the various opinions floating around regarding just who is REALLY at fault for the shootings.  Most of the liberals are blaming Pam Geller for putting on an “offensive” conference with the challenge to draw Muhammad. The best drawing would earn the artist a prize of $10,000.  I often wonder…who provided that cash prize?  Is Geller independently wealthy or what?  Perhaps donations to her organization are plentiful?

Three days ago, I did see and hear some clips of Pam Geller appearing on several different news stations and news analysis shows.  Typically, the liberals blamed the free speech messenger (Geller) while the conservatives supported her First Amendment right to hold such a conference and contest.

When I first heard about this “draw Muhammad” contest, I knew it would not only be deemed controversial, but I also thought that it would draw [no pun intended] in some crazed Islamic jihadist to “defend” the sharia law tenet that those who insult the prophet of Islam deserve death.

Now, Ms. Geller has a fatwa against her.  From what I have read at her blog, Atlas Shrugged/Pam Geller, she has had death threats against her for years.  She must have LOTS of protection around her in order for her to continue on in her quest to share the truth about radical Islam and their “death to infidels” intentions here in America and around the world.

This evening, I heard some of what O’Reilly opined about the incident.  He seemed to think that Jesus would not have sanctioned such an event.  My first question…how does he know this?  My second question, didn’t Jesus challenge the Jewish leaders of the Sanhedrin by what he did in the Temple court (turning over the tables of the money-changers) as well as when he told the truth about who He was when asked if he is the Son of God?  In both cases, death threats were levied against Him.  However, Jesus escaped several attempts against him until he laid down His own life of His own accord for the purpose of forgiveness of sins. His followers were to be bestowed with mercy, grace, love, healing, and redemption through the power of the Holy Spirit of God.

Bottom line?

Islam’s “god” and “prophet” want followers to die for him!

While our one and only True God of the Bible – Yahweh (also called Elohim, which is plural and represents the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) – sent His Son to die for us for the remission of our sins!

Bill O’Reilly, longtime host of “The O’Reilly Factor” can be a real blowhard sometimes!  He often does not “get things right” whenever he writes about and/or speaks about Jesus Christ.  The film based on O’Reilly’s book contained a portrayal of Jesus as not really knowing who He was at certain parts of His ministry.  How could such an idea be possible?  Answer:  it can’t be possible because Jesus knew His mission here on this earth from eternity past and eternity future! The moment Jesus began teaching in the Temple at age 12 (when his parents had to come and look for him), we know that upon finding him in the Temple, Mary and Joseph asked him why he did this. He replied, “didn’t you know that I must be about my Father’s business?”

Personally, I thought that it was a mistake to cast a Muslim in the role of Jesus [in the “Killing Jesus” movie]. After all, Muslims do not see Jesus as the Son of God – they see Him as just another “prophet,” but not as great as Islam’s prophet. They even claim that it was Judas who was crucified on the cross – not Jesus! No wonder the Muslim actor portrayed Christ in a way that made it seem like he didn’t know exactly who he was – precisely because Muslims do not regard Jesus as the Son of God anyway!

Sorry for straying a bit from the topic at hand, but this example of O’Reilly painting Christ as someone who didn’t know his purpose while “going through the motions” of his ministry was, quite frankly, a hideous and ignorant mistake!

Geller and her conference attendees did indeed stir up a hornet’s nest amongst the radical Islamists with her blatant free speech conference and challenge to draw Muhammad. It wasn’t anything that I would be interested in doing and I certainly would not be interested in attending such a conference. However, I support her right to defend our First Amendment free speech rights in the manner that she sees fit…especially because it drew a LOT of attention to the crux of the matter…that creeping Muslim sharia law is already happening here in America!

Too many people are complacent about what it means and how dangerous it is now.  It will continue to grow – like a cancer –  in the future if people continue to keep their heads in the sand and their mouths shut out of fear!

The left wants to promote the false narrative that Islam is a “religion of peace” when the truth of the matter is staring us right in the face EVERY DAY! Radical Islam is a conquering political movement that masquerades as a “religion.”

One of Pam Geller’s organizational goals is to expose the truth about radical Islam – even when people don’t want to believe what she and her group are exposing! We have another case of “see no evil,” “speak no evil,” and “hear no evil” when it comes to the truth about this jihadist movement!

Why is that?

I think it has to do with conscientious stupidity, manipulation of the masses, deceiving spirits, and sincere ignorance! When people do not know the truth of the Bible, they can easily fall for the taqiyya lies being used to spread radical Islamic sharia law under the guise of “tolerance” for a “religion” that has been built up through one lie upon another lie (and millions of deaths!) over hundreds of years! Who in their right mind (the operative words!) would ever fall for such deception?

Scripture dispels deception!

2Th 2:9

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10

and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11

And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

2Th 2:12

that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2Th 2:13

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,

2Th 2:14

to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2Th 2:15

Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.

2Th 2:16

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace,

2Th 2:17

comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.
