AN IRREFUTABLE FOUNDATION.
If I simply wrote and published this beginning with the dealing of current and ongoing issues some would argue that this is “just your opinion”. So I will begin with a solid Foundation upon God’s Holy, Eternal, and Immutable Word, and will throughout reference, quote, and link to God’s Word, The Holy Bible.
Laying The Foundation.
Isaiah 5:18-23 King James Version (KJV)
18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
This is not new.
Lucifer convinced one third of Heaven’s Angels that The Almighty Creator God “was bad”, and that he, Lucifer (later to be called Satan) “was good”.
When later God created Adam and Eve Satan did this again to them, and upon they’re choosing “evil as good” sin with it’s penalty fell upon us all. So this is not new.
The reason it is important now is because here we are, some 6,000-8,000 years later and have LEARNED NOTHING.
Mankind still substitutes “evil for good” and “good for evil”.
THE STANDARD OF GOOD AND EVIL IS DEFINED BY THE LORD GOD HIMSELF HERE:
I TIMOTHY 4:1-3 AND
TODAY’S EXAMPLES OF “GOOD IS EVIL/EVIL IS GOOD”
ILHAN ABDULLAHI OMAR.
Will NOT get into a detailed tit-for-tat discussion on what Ilahan Abdullahi Omar said. It is a matter of public record that anyone can Google and read the back and forth about, so it is pointless to simply argue about everyone else is arguing about. Instead I will look at the assumptions folks are making about her Muslim faith. Some say Islam is good, a religion of peace. Others argue it’s bad, anything BUT a religion of peace. Still others say it’s “personal and should not be a part of the discussion”.
BUT when ANYONE runs for ANY PUBLIC office their views, beliefs, and associations become PUBLIC too. We The People HAVE A GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO KNOW THOSE WHO LABOR AMONG US AS LEADERS .
Instead of bantering about Ilahan Abdullahi Omar’s words, let us look to the most important, foundational world-view she has and holds, Islam.
A LOOK AT ISLAM FROM ISLAM’S P.O.V. .
We will have a NARROW focus here. We will keep ourselves to looking at what The Qu’ran teaches/says, what Mohammed and subsequent “prophets”, mullahs, Imans, and Ayatollahs have said/written, and to real, actual HISTORY.
MYTHS OF ISLAM [there are several myths told non-Muslims juxtaposed with the truth, each has their own link. Will only link to most pertinent here.]
Here are some quick facts…
The first Crusade began in 1095… 460 years after the first Christian city was overrun by Muslim armies, 457 years after Jerusalem was conquered by Muslim armies, 453 years after Egypt was taken by Muslim armies, 443 after Muslims first plundered Italy, 427 years after Muslim armies first laid siege to the Christian capital of Constantinople, 380 years after Spain was conquered by Muslim armies, 363 years after France was first attacked by Muslim armies, 249 years after the capital of the Christian world, Rome itself, was attacked by a Muslim army, and only after centuries of church burnings, killings, enslavement and forced conversions of Christians.
By the time the Crusades finally began, Muslim armies had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world.
Europe had been harassed by Muslims since the first few years following Muhammad’s death. As early as 652, Muhammad’s followers launched raids on the island of Sicily, waging a full-scale occupation 200 years later that lasted almost a century and was punctuated by massacres, such as that at the town of Castrogiovanni, in which 8,000 Christians were put to death. In 1084, ten years before the first crusade, Muslims staged another devastating Sicilian raid, burning churches in Reggio, enslaving monks and raping an abbey of nuns before carrying them into captivity….
THIS IS THE BIGGEST ONE BECAUSE NON-MUSLIMS ARE TOLD (BY MUSLIMS) ONE THING, WHEN THE OPPOSITE IS IN FACT TRUE:
THE TRUTH? THE TRUTH IS THAT MUSLIMS LIE TO ALL NON-MUSLIMS, IT IS PART AND PARCEL OF THEIR DESIGN TO EITHER BY DECEPTION, BY “GUILTING”, OR FORCE TO TAKE OVER THE ENTIRE WORLD.
You can say you didn’t know that.
You can even simply choose not to agree.
But you can NOT say that what was just told you, what you just read was NOT from Muslim/Islamic sources, citations, and actual, real History.
For any to ignore, neglect, reject this is to “call evil good” and to “call good evil”…you have been warned and educated.
BTW, Islam is NOT a race- it is a religion, more accurately, it is an AUTHORITARIAN WORLD-VIEW THAT CODIFIES ALL THE WORST OF MANKIND AND WEAPONIZES IT AGAINST ALL NON-MUSLIMS. It is NOT “racist” to be anti-Islam. Actually, if you’re NOT anti-Islam you are either Muslim or one of it’s victims, slaves, or dupes.
TURN OUR ATTENTION HOME: TRUMPISM AND LIBERALISM
So while there rages debate over that which is un-debatable to any who study the above, there is another war going on against culture, morals, and principles, one that is being waged by Liberalism. I include “Trumpism” because it is the most recent mutant variation and renaming of Liberalism. Liberalism by other names and titles is also known as:
- BIG GOVERNMENT AUTHORITARIANISM
- SECULAR HUMANISM/ATHEISM
“What?!! Are you crazy to lump those all together?!!”
At the link provided above you will see a list of a plethora of Liberal views, principles and alliances that include:
EVER INCREASING TAXATION
EVER INCREASING GOVERNMENT REGULATION
GOVERNMENT THEFT OF PROPERTY: TAXATION AND EMINENT DOMAIN
ATTACK AND REGULATE FREE SPEECH
ATTACK AND REGULATE GUN AND PROPERTY RIGHTS
ATTACK THE CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH FAITH
ATTACK, MOCK AND SUBVERT THE CONSTITUTION/BILL OF RIGHTS
BE SOFT ON CRIME/PUNISH LAW ABIDING CITIZENS…
There IS more, but you can go to the link and read it there.
So far we’ve seen two independent groups who are the codification of lies and deception all to undermine good and establish evil.
In closing we’ll look at the arts: music, painting, sculpture, photos, and film (movies and tv).
For almost 6 years I was an Assistant Supervisor of Security at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Fine Art. I saw some of the greatest pieces of art EVER. The Dutch, French, Italian, and British masters, men like Frederick Church who painted the scenic landscape of Jerusalem from The Mount of Olives. I also had to the great misfortune to see, and protect, a “horse” made out of sticks and chicken-wire, and a Jackson Pollock “painting” where the “artist” stood on a ladder and dripped and splattered paint on an un-prepped canvas.
Let me quote Al Capp here for he sums up the changing in art quite well:
“Abstract art? A product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered,”
Study all the various arts. Study each’s timeline of development and change. You will notice a steady, progressive intrusion of the ugly, vile, crass, vulgar, lewd, and profane.
I’ve spoke already about paintings and sculptures, let me address music and film (tv/movies).
Music has always had two veins of inspiration, as does all art. God and The Bible on the one side. Man and his (vain) imagination on the other. BUT for the most part what we know as “pop Art/mainstream art” had almost always reflected the influence of Judeo-Christianity, even if the artist themselves was not a believer…but this began to change in all fields about the same time, give or take a little bit.
Instead of art (all fields) trying to convey a wholesome, uplifting message, or some great truth…ugliness began to creep in. Not just aesthetic ugliness, physical ugliness, but moral ugliness.
Things long considered taboo began to become prominent themes. Things like pornography, nudity, obscenity, profanity, rebellion, drunkenness, drugs, violence, and the occult became more evident, and even “the norm” in pop, mainstream art.
Songs glorifying sex outside of marriage, sex before marriage, defying authority,sodomy, same-sex relations, pedophilia, necrophilia… and rebellion in general, and as one song said “a rebel without a clue”…all were THEMES of song after song that were HITS.
The saddest part is the church LET IT HAPPEN.
The Church went from railing against the flood tide of depravity and perversion, to grudgingly accepting it, to now embracing and promoting it to the point that those who STILL adhere to Biblical, traditional ideals, morals, and principles are scorned and ridiculed.
How has this affected the church, and by extension affected the culture as a whole?
Behaviour that God/The Bible calls sin, wickedness, abomination, depravity (see the long list of Scriptures above) is NOW common-place even IN the (so-called) “church”!! It is nothing “new” to hear of some “minister”/”christian” committing fornication, adultery, theft, homosexuality/lesbianism, smoking, boozing, drugs, porn, lying, fraud, and defending the MURDER of innocent babies!
Truly. Evil is called good. Good is called evil. And the remnant that hold fast to God and HIS Word are mocked by “the church” and by the world as being “narrow-minded”, “old fashioned”, “out of touch”, “not PC”, “judge-a-mental” and “bigoted”…when ALL we are is Biblical, correct, honest, and sounding a loving warning of God’s displeasure, and soon coming wrath upon sin.
Essentially, there are only two camps to be in.
God’s through HIS grace and The Blood of Jesus…
Any other camp is under the Domain of Satan.
God WINS…I choose HIS side. “I have decided to follow Jesus…”
