Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man comes to the Father but by me.”
Christianity is defined as a relationship with Jesus Christ. All other faiths are man-made religions, including Islam.
Every day of Ramadan (the holy month for Islam) is marked by violence somewhere in the world, with Western Civilization and Christians being the main target. Not only do they kill and harm others, but devout Muslims are into self flagellation, where groups of men inflict punishment on themselves to the point where blood puddles in the street. It reminds me of the times of the prophet Elijah, when the worshipers of Baal tried to get their god’s attention by mutilating themselves. It didn’t work then, and they paid the ultimate price – death. Although many Muslims claim Islam is a peaceful religion, they killed over 1,639 men, women and children during Ramadan in order to appease their god Allah. Surprisingly, we and other Christian countries still don’t understand this fact, and no amount of evangelizing is going to change that anytime soon, as timid and fearful as we Americans are of them. And even if it did work, it is already too little too late. God himself, in the form of Jesus Christ, has to appear to them in visions to get their crazed attention. We as a Judeo- Christian nation should have given each and every immigrant a copy of the Bible and an invitation to Christianity. After all, it is because of the Christian faith that these people were welcomed into our benevolent country. Even so, they want nothing to do with Christianity and want to dominate our country by Sharia, in spite of not having contributed anything to our way of life. And to further complicate things, some of them refuse to work for others because it’s against their religion! Thank God our president refused to host the yearly Ramadan dinner at the White House this year.
There are other religions and cults in our country, but they don’t go about killing others as a way of worship (at least not yet). Just to name a few, Mormonism was begun by a delusional man named John Smith, to whom an angel named Moroni appeared, telling him to dig up some golden plates in his back yard that would explain more fully the word of god. Remember, Satan can appear as an angel of light. With a name like Moroni (that John Smith gave the angel) Satan almost gave himself away.
The Jehovah Witnesses believe that a certain hermit named Charles Taze Russell was inspired to write a new bible (all by himself) which he called the New World Translation. I can assure you that just because you know God’s name (Jehovah), it will not guarantee you a place in heaven. The Bible clearly says that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. The original Word of God also says, “There is no other name under heaven, given among men whereby you must be saved.” And consider this other verse, “This is the record, that God has given us His only Son, He that has the Son has life; he that has not the Son, has not life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
The many Indian gods, including the blue faced Shiva, are a confounding array of rat and cow worshipers. We can see the devastating results by the way they live in their third world country.
Voodoo reigns on the island of Haiti. Is it any wonder they too are such a backward society?
Catholicism began with wealthy landowners paying for the privilege to become priests in order to minister to the surfs who worked their lands. Talk about bribery and corruption. Many, being human, are corrupt pedophiles to this very day. Still they continue to thrive.
That isn’t to say that Protestants are exempt from corruption. Indeed, apostasy is permeating the church more and more as the end approaches. Snake handlers, laughing ministries, and phony money grubbing TV preachers have so-called “Christian ministries.” All you need is charisma and/or a crazy hairdo. I could go on and on, but there should be enough said here for you to mull over.
Indeed, this must be the terminal generation since Biblical prophecy is being played out before our eyes on a daily basis. It’s becoming obvious that we are the generation of believers who will be transported out of here in the rapture before all hell hits the fan.
I often get videos at the library for the week, and especially like true stories and documentaries. The librarian who had been reading a book about witches the week before was at the counter again today. I wondered how I might approach her with the gospel, but I needn’t have been concerned since the Bible says the Holy Spirit will give us the right words to say at the right time if we let Him. Indeed, God had arranged for me to find a video I was looking for about a man who claimed to have had conversations with God. This man’s book was a huge hit with the reading public and had been made into a movie a while back. I had seen it a few years ago and wanted to see it again to see what it was that interested people so much. He never mentioned Jesus or salvation throughout the entire movie. Although I had been looking for it for a number of weeks I couldn’t find it – that is until today. When the librarian saw that I had it to check out she recommended it highly since she had just viewed it herself. It seems the librarian likes to read about and explore the supernatural. She is obviously a seeker of spiritual things and hopefully truth. You see she’s a tree hugging Unitarian, as is the author of the book “Conversations with God.”
I know spiritual warfare when I see it, and I am determined to share the Word of God with her the next time I see her. I know His Word won’t come back to Him void and perhaps another lost soul will be saved.
