This is where “Christianity” is today! ‘Tennessee megachurch pastor Tavner Smith returned to the pulpit Sunday—six weeks after allegations surfaced that Smith had engaged in an adulterous affair and eight of his staff quit.‘https://julieroys.com/tn-pastor-returns-pulpit-absence-alleged-adultery/?mc_cid=aed4266b85&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
Huck was a Tennessee boy who nobody loved. He was moved from place to place as a lad but when he was old enough he joined the Marines. His life in the Marines was not what he would have liked but he at least received an honorable discharge. Through various circumstances, he meets the Lord Jesus Christ, marries and attends Bible College. He never ‘feels’ called to be a ‘preacher’ but he and his wife are used of the Lord to help many young people who found themselves in similar situations as Huck did to come to faith in Christ.
If the spate of recent terroist attacks in New Jersey and Paris had been committed by those who follow Scientology or Mormonism would there be a parade and a special day declared to honor their religion?! Hold that thought for a moment.
“A Muslim slashed a New York cop with a meat cleaver on September 15. Another Muslim planted bombs in New York and New Jersey; one went off, wounding 29 people in Chelsea on September 17. In response, the city of New York is honoring all the contributions Muslims make to the city. Mayor Bill de Blasio seems to think that his primary responsibility after every jihad attack is to make sure that no one thinks ill of Islam. Stopping jihad attacks? That’s farther down on his list.
The thinking here appears to be that if we welcome Muslims and laud and applaud them, they will not be driven by our unkindness to become “radicalized” and will not join jihad groups. So we should see a dropoff of jihad activity now in New York, with everyone being so nice to Muslims, right?
We’ll see. De Blasio has been mayor for a few years now, and he ended a surveillance program that Muslims hated. That didn’t stop the meat cleaver jihadi or the bomber. I doubt that de Blasio’s scheme will have any success in the future, either.” https://www.jihadwatch.org/2016/09/after-two-jihad-attacks-in-nyc-in-september-de-blasio-names-september-25-muslim-parade-day
In this so-called war on terror, who is the enemy? It’s not Islam so-says the politicians and most of those on the left. The politician says it is those extremists who only “think” they are Muslims who commit these acts. Therefore if these extremists are not Muslims what are they? If they are not Muslims what are they “extreme” in? Are they “extreme” in their reading and understanding of the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad or have they converted to Scientology or Mormonism?
So, how do we identify the extremist? Do we wait until they attack and murder or may these “extremists” be identified as they live and move among us?
In these photos which one would you identify as a terroist? Allow me to tell a story. Last year, my wife and I were visiting our daughter in Chattanooga, Tenessee. While we were eating at a restaurant our daughter called and told us to stay where we were as a gunman was out and about shooting military personnel. That gunman was the boy in the red shirt; Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez. From the photo he doesn’t look like a terroist but he was. Firstly he was a Muslim and secondly he hated America and Americans. Of course after the murder of four Marines and a Sailor the psychobabel began and various explanations made to explain why a boy by the name of Mohammad did what he did.
Well, that was last year and so far in 2016 the United States has seen more of the same. Why does it continue? One BIG reason is because the politicians will NOT identify the enemy. Yes, the simple truth is “…you cannot fight effectively unless you can identify your enemies.” http://www.businessinsider.com.au/33-strategies-of-war-you-should-apply-to-everyday-life-2012-5?r=US&IR=T#declare-war-on-your-enemies-2
So, what is the key to beginning to stop these murderous acts of terroism; IDENTIFICATION of the enemy! However, political correctness will keep us vulnerable to more of the same!
Last year (2015) my wife and I were in the states visitng family. This visit took us to Chattanooga, TN. While we were there two memorable incidents occurred. In Charleston, SC Dylan Roof entered a church where blacks were meeting for prayer and murdered nine people. The other memorable incident took place in Chattanooga. My wife and I were eating at a restaurant and our daughter called us from work and told us to stay where we were as a shooter was on the loose. We later learned it was Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez who murdered one sailor and four Marines.
What I want to bring attention to is what transpired after these events. As far as I can find out not much changed after the Chattanooga murders. ISIS (even though it is not Islamic according to the PC folk) is still doing its thing, Mosques are still open, the Koran is still in print and the Islamic flag still flies.
What occurred after the Charleston murders? The Confederate flag was a point of great controversy!! but nothing Islamic seemed to be a point of contention! Even some statues of Confederate soldiers have been desecraated or removed altogether. http://thefederalist.com/2016/05/24/war-on-the-confederacy-is-a-war-on-the-past/ I do not agree with everything in this article but it is worth reading.
My point to ALL of this is how these two situations were treated so much differently. One would think the Confederate Flag pulled the trigger that killed nine people! While the Muslim boy murders military personnel there is not one word of condemning the Koran or Islam! Something is going on here!
The following video is worth your time to watch and hopefully will help you understand the great heritage one has from being from the South; whether black or white.
