Choose Love, Not Hate
19 September 2014
Surely the entire civilized world would wholeheartedly agree that raping and cutting off the breasts of teenage girls is an act of savages. the Islamic State's male-on-male gang rape “marriage” jihad blackmail is yet another act of savages.
The truth is that the Muslims of ISIS are committing evil, atrocious, heinous, barbaric acts which would make any demon proud. Other Muslims in other Islamic movements around the world are committing similarly savage acts.
Therefore Pamela Geller and her colleagues have been placing ads around the nation for the past few years in order to bring the truth to the American people. scream bloody murder. Notice that the above ad does not say “defeat Islam.” It does not say “defeat Muslims.” It says what any civilized person would say: Defeat savage jihad.
Some Islamic leaders insist that “there is not a single religion that approves of such practices.” In his eve-of-September-11 speech last week, President Obama made a similar statement: “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”
In one sense, these statements are correct. There IS no religion which condones such savagery. Because Islam is NOT a religion! Islam is a totalitarian ideology — much like Nazism and Communism — overlaid with a deceptive religious façade.
Those who oppose Islamic savagery are often called “Islamophobic.” As I explained in Of Various Phobias, a phobia is an “unreasonable fear,” but being afraid of savage Islamists is actually very reasonable. Pamela Geller explains it so brilliantly: It's not Islamophobia, it's Islamorealism. I suppose all those being raped, tortured and killed by ISIS are Islamophobic as well!
Those who oppose Islamic savagery are often called “racists.” Those who make such accusations obviously didn't do very well in school. If you look at the dictionary definition of racism, you'll clearly see that it has nothing to do with religion. Sorry, jihad supporters: Islam is NOT a race, and being Muslim is NOT a race. Therefore, those who opposed Islamic jihad are NOT racists!
Then there are the Christian and Jewish religious leaders who condemn the “Islamophobic racists” who speak out against Islam, “the religion of peace.” They insist that we should all “love” Muslims rather than “hate” them by opposing Islam. In response to Ms. Geller's ad shown above, Rabbis for Human Rights countered with this ad.
For some, loving Muslims means burying your head in the ground like an ostrich. Others think loving Muslims means hearing no evil, seeing no evil, speaking no evil. Many think that loving the Palestinians means giving them their own state in the Land of Israel, even though that makes them enemies of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
Love that is not based on truth is mere sentimentality — a counterfeit, false “love.” True love “does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:6).
Yeshua (Isa, Jesus) demonstrated true love when He died on the execution stake for our sins, even while we were still His enemies (Romans 5:8-10). Yeshua calls His followers to walk in His footsteps and be ready to stick their necks out for Muslims.
When followers of Yeshua are willing to be martyred through the savagery of the followers of Allah, THEN Muslims will finally see what true love, the love of Yeshua, really looks like!
Yeshua wants His followers to be friends with Muslims. He wants them to forgive instead of hate. Yeshua insists that “love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good” (Romans 12:9).
Accepting, whitewashing, or turning a blind eye to the savagery of Islam is to love evil. Rather than telling the victims of savagery to follow love instead of hate, it seems much more necessary to tell the perpetrators of savagery — the savages themselves — to follow love and not hate.
Muslims need to turn their backs on Allah, the god who hates, and follow Yeshua, the God of love, instead. THIS is the ad the world needs to see!
Once Muslims are set free from their bondage to the savage, demonic, impostor-god Allah, they will also be set free from their demonic compulsion to savagery. Choose love!
