The following blog post was originally posted here: Florida; Why Blame Christians? …moral inversion
Let me get this straight.
A noted Orlando, Florida Imam publicly calls for the execution of homosexuals. All Muslim Mosques preach out of a book that calls for the murder of infidels, (including homosexuals), and in the years since 9-11, the West has experienced more than 25,000 major murderous attacks upon it, in the name of Allah.
Furthermore, ISIS(The ISLAMIC STATE of Iraq and Syria) has threatened to commit mass murder in Florida in the past week.(Do you see where I am going here? “ISLAMIC…”)
Last night, an Orlando Muslim goes into a gay bar in Orlando Florida, and opened up with a semi-automatic assault rifle killing more than fifty people. He is Muslim(Who knew?), a son of Afghan Immigrants who had twice been investigated by the FBI, without consequence, and who had been reported at the place of his work for “unhinged and erratic behavior”, but it was ignored out of fear of someone being accused of racism,( as had the Fort Hood Shooter).
The bodies haven’t even been prepared for burial yet, but our fearless leader Obama, has already trotted out an Islamic Imam to lecture America not to jump to conclusions about the “religion of peace”.
Who do many in the public look to blame?
Christians of course! Makes perfect sense doesn’t it? Within the last hour I have seen four or five articles accusing Christians of everything from gloating over the bodies of deceased homosexuals, to The ACLU accusing Christians of fostering a hate environment that caused this mass murder.
From the first article, the author connects the Bible Belt and some Christians with every time he hears of another “vicious crime against a group of LGBT people”.
“Every time a vicious crime is committed against a group of LGBT people or a natural disaster befalls a Gay Pride event, my ears are pained by senseless explanations offered by religious yet graceless voices. Most Christians mourn and weep over these tragedies, but I always hear a few Bible Belt dwellers claiming “the heathen” got what they deserved—that God smote the sodomites as they reveled in their sins. They recall biblical stories like Sodom and Gomorrah and almost excitedly proclaim that God is “still in the business of judging rebels!” There is no doubt in my mind that there are religious yet gospel-ignorant men and women sitting in their church pews as I write this article, feeling tempted to utter such insensitivities in the wake of the Orlando gay club shooting.”
What a strange reaction, bordering on the bizarre, that Christians, who had nothing to do with these murders, and who would never preach murder, and whose LORD would never countenance these murders, are almost immediately castigated as if either they contributed to them, or rejoiced in them. Doesn’t that smack of Satanic influence to you?
Is this the length that society is prepared to go to to avoid facing the reality that Muslims are simply unfit to live in a modern civilized society? In what world would Christians have anything to do with it. This is ominous, because it smacks of Nero burning Rome, then blaming Christians for it.The Whole society knew Nero did it, but they went along with the persecution which followed because they didn’t like Christians anyway.
Well you may not like us, but if you are honest you would have to admit, Christians don’t mass murder nor do they rejoice when Muslims do mass murder. All true Christians find this mass murder utterly appalling and take no joy in the slaughter of anyone.
So what in the world possesses people (no pun intended) to chose this occasion to chastise Christians, as if we need to be reminded not to rejoice in this appalling event!
Call me old fashioned, but in a time of yet another Muslim mass murder,Wouldn’t it make more sense to chide, Oh I don’t know, maybe…Muslims? Just saying.
I think this knee jerk reaction is an example of something the Bible warned about would come upon the world in the latter days, called “The Delusion”, which will soon grip all of the world, damning those who “Receive not the Love of the Truth…”
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thess 2:3-12)
It reminds me of a little exchange I had in an American Post office in the days after 9-11-2001. At the counter I ordered a book of self sticking stamps. They asked me what pattern I wanted, and I told them, “Anything but the One with the Islamic writing on it”. You would thing I belched in church or something, the way everyone in that little Post office reacted. Almost immediately at the counter, the Postal employee barked at me, “Christians do as much violence as Moslems do you know!” I was struck by the immediate rage, the knee jerk reaction, and the instant canned answer which is patently false, and shouted at me on the day after Muslims slaughtered three thousand fellow citizens in cold blood in New York City.
Then I realized, that our culture has brainwashed and conditioned people to think in Anti-Christ terms, and that given the situation, people will turn in ferocity on the innocent rather than allow themselves to condemn the obviously guilty. Such is the power of our current delusion.
