Pastor Terry Jones, What does God think?

crossIn what has become a national nuisance with a lot of people I wanted to take a moment to point out a few things. You may have your own feelings towards Pastor Terry Jones but he sure is showing the hypocrisy of the world fully in plain view. Let’s review…

Obama says Muslims have the “right” to build a Mosque right next to Ground Zero. A burial place for the Americas  who died in 9-11 attacks. If this happened to Muslims they would of made it a holy site, claimed ownership and demanded everyone else recognize it. That’s fine if in fact Islam is a religion. However if Islam is not a religion and in fact a form of government it does not fall under the same rights.  

But in matters of free speech Obama doesn’t think it’s so wise. Build an insulting, emotion arising Mosque… Okie Dokie burn some worthless paper… Oh now wait a min… The world needs to hear about this. We need to make a public spectacle out of it.

Muslims can burn Bibles, American flags, Israel’s Flag, yell death to America and Christians even right here on American soil all of which is Okie Dokie with everyone. Let one so called Christian burn some Qur’ans, the world comes to a stand still.

I’m not an activist.  But I believe that some good has come from what Pastor Jones has done and that is to show what the world is really made of. The real Kosmos, Satan’s world control system was exposed even if just for a moment, you get to see the world turn on Christians but love anything against them.

I know I’ll get a “few” emails about my support of Pastor Jones. I’m not endorsing the man, I’m pointing out what the world’s response was which I found far more important. Personally if your going to teach about how Islam is bad, start with the fact that Islam is NOT a religion. Start with showing people how it’s a form of government rather than religion.

Islam can not move into a host nation and just live there. It’s mission is always to convert the host nation into a Islamic tyrannical government. One look at France should prove this point. Whereas Christianity does not do this. Christianity’s goal is never to replace government or even to change people’s lives. It’s about saving a soul.

The main mission of Christianity is to spread the Gospel. The job of a Christian isn’t necessarily to worry if the one who heard the Gospel becomes born again (while that’s nice) but that’s the ultimate job of the Holy Spirit. There is other jobs of certain members of the Body but the gift of Pastor-Teacher is a special job. Flock Management so to speak, but that’s a whole other topic.

In a simple view a building which Christians go into to learn God’s word (most call it a church) but “The Church” goes into the building to learn. (not that it’s the only place you should be learning)  This is a school once mature they go to job number one and that can be a whole number of things which all will be helping in one way or another the main mission. Spreading the Gospel.

If you want to know if your doing God’s will just ask yourself, “Are you maturing in God’s Word? Are you helping to Spread the Gospel?” Not everyone’s job is the same, some will be on the front lines, some will be in the back with the gear, but for every single believer, God has a purpose and plan for. The victory comes when the believer learns, understands and operates on this. That being, God’s Word.

The point to this is, Christianity by the Bible isn’t trying to setup governments. Christianity in the true sense doesn’t even require a code of conduct. While yes, a Royal Family member code of conduct exists,  this just betters one’s life even teach them to love among other things, but is NOT a requirement of salvation!

Now before one hundred of you email me, yes there is a great importance to the code of conduct, but God is not a forceful God. He will never force you to love him. If your going to love God, it will always have to be by your own free will. When the believer understands that what God teaches us then one can understand what the family code of conduct can do for them. But it can never be forced and to do so is wrong. In fact people who try this always fail. It will turn people away from God if you try and force it.

Christianity is very special. (isn’t that the understatement of the … all time?) It’s special because it’s true, living and of the true God. God will never force you to love him. He will knock at the door of your heart but it will always be up to you to allow him in. What people mean when they say this is, the changing of the mind to accept Jesus as your pardon for sin. God, the Holy Spirit physically comes into you.

God will change you from the inside out, not from the outside in such as the world does to people. By your faith in God, he will make you righteous. We as humans can never make ourselves righteous. No matter what we do.

The New Testament Gospel is one of Grace. This after all being the Age of Grace the Bible should reflect that, which after all it does perfectly. My question to you the reader is, Is Islam a book of Grace?

Remember when you ask God how much does he love you his reply is always to Nail His Son to the Cross and says “This Much” while he poured your sins on His Son so that He would pay for them so you wouldn’t have to. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior I’d ask that you read John 3:16 of the Bible.

Which says  John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

This is what God’s impersonal love for you did. You can become born again by simply accepting what Jesus did for you. This is what the Bible says. No other act, work, deed, etc. is required to become saved!  Imagine what God’s personal love for you will do. 

John 3:36 – “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

If you have accepted Jesus, and have any questions please feel free to contact me about anything.
