Church Discussion: Is Muslim A Religion Of Peace?

My church did something very simple.  They just posted on Facebook an online article and asked us to read it.. and comment on it.

No pre-conceived comments or leanings, they just want our honest feelings and thoughts.

The article in question:
5 Ways To Cultivate A Crippling And Irrational Fear Of Muslims

My summary of the Article: People are freaked about Muslims and should not be.  Make friends with lots of muslims and you will see they are loving and peaceful people.  If you don't, you're probably a person that reads "Left Behind" books, listen to your crazy uncle that writes a blog, you must love politics and not love God, etc.

Here was my response not only to the article's comments section, but to my Church Facebook comment response.
----------------------------------------


I'm not so sure a healthy fear is irrational.

Here is Anjem Choudary who is an Islamic leader talking about his own religion.  Should probably go to the source to form a proper opinion right?

How about historical evidence?  My momma always said... "Actions speak louder than words".
A Theopolitical Belief System, 1300 years of Muslim war against everyone that is non-Muslim (it's time to dig into history and learn that this fear of Muslims has been going on for 1300 years because the Quron leads this religion to this way of life.

So.. they're peaceful -within- their religion right?  The only real problem is when they conflict with other religions.  So if you are a Muslim then you won't have to worry about the violence.  Well.. except if you cross them in any way, or you are a woman.

Here is an article about them killing a 7 year old boy because they said he was spying for the United States in Afghanistan.

Or how about the way they treet all women?

Do not watch the following video if you get sick watching the mutilation of women by a peaceful religion.

Well.. if you're not a little boy in Muslim or a woman, then maybe you will see the peace of the Muslim religion.

Surely though now if you are a Jew.

Here is a video from Cleveland Ohio of a religion of peace singing songs about the Army of Muhammad returning to kill all the jews, notice the main chorus of the song is all about swimming and crawling through blood.

Here are the Lyrics of this peaceful song:

Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey.
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews.
The Army of Muhammad will return
We will crawl and fight.

With our blood, we will fight.
We will crawl and fight.
With our blood we will fight.
Ah, Ah.
You will not cross over my blood, over my blood.
You will not live in my homeland, in my homeland.
You will not cross over my blood, over my blood.
You will not live in my homeland, in my homeland.
Death to you…under the ground,
and glory to us above the ground.
Death to you under the ground,
and glory to us above the ground.

Not just a popular song about killing Jews here in America, it's an equal opportunity song of peace.  The video below is of Muslim Terrorists singing it on the Flotilla ambush to Gaza about a month ago.

I work with a man from India and he is on an International Religious Study Organization.  He and the organization travel all over the world studying different religions.  The Hindu religion is very accepting of other beliefs and they pull in many ideas of other religions to include in their own.  So they are fascinated and VERY open minded about other religions because they are looking for things to enhance and include in their own beliefs.

My friend though says he is confused by the Muslim Religion because it is all about hate, killing those that do not come to the Muslim faith and is filled with Violence.

Not my words, but the words of someone that follows a religion that accepts all others and seeks for peace and understanding between all peoples of the world.

I should probably wrap this up.

Now for my personal feelings.

I will pray for everyone, even members of the Muslim religion.  My heart breaks for anyone that does not have a relationship with Christ.  I will try to share Gospel of Christ with everyone I meet in this world.  Most people shrug it off and don't want to risk changing a life they feel comfortable with right now.  Some are receptive.  But I share the Gospel of Christ and then I don't worry about it.  It's up to the Holy Spirit and that person to take action or not.  It's my job to share the plan of salavation and the Love of Christ... not to brainwhash or browbeat them into a relationship with Christ.

But.. when it comes to the Muslim religion there is an immediate and certain conflict which can result in the loss of my and my families life.  Will this stop me from sharing the love of Christ?  No, but I'm not naive enough to believe there is no threat there either.

I think it is important to know what you believe.  Do you really believe that "The only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ?"  If so, you can have relationships and friendships of people with other religions.  I have no issues like that at all.  It's between them and God.. not me - them - and God.

But I have to ask why there is such a pressure to ignore litterally 1300 years of proven violence to the core of the Muslim religion?  Is the objective an all encompasing melting pot of all religions so everyone can play friendly in the sandbox?

I would profess that reality has escaped you if you belive the Muslim faith will accept you in any fashion if you do not convert to the Muslim faith.  They are instructed to kill you if you do not convert.

I don't know why it's required to prove that the sky is blue.  We're in an upside down world where up is down and left is right.  But be careful, you might be labeled as an "End Times" wackjob, or an islomofascist or some other term to demonize you for standing up for Character, Intergrity and for standing firm on your belief that the only way to the Father is through the saving Grace of Jesus Christ.

Call me what you will, but I will Pray for all, share the love of Christ to all and I will stand up against lies and dishonesty whereever I see it.

I totally agree with you.

I listen to Walid Shoebat quite a bit. He has influenced my idea of what the end times scenario will look like.

I believe the Muslim religion will be the religion of the anti-christ. For this reason, the dumbing down of radical Islam seems to be a global priority.

The tendency these days is to avoid thinking in terms of black and white; rather to fade our thinking into shades of gray and this is a color that does not exist in the Muslim religion.

My Religion: Share Love, Share Forgiveness, Share Hope.

Muslim Religion: Manipulate people, lie to them and then kill them.

To call for the acceptance of the belief that Muslim's are peaceful is not only an insult to my intelligence but it is a subversive attack on my life by assisting people that wish to kill me by helping them digging deeper into my country to more easily destroy us. (That is my official longest run-on sentence of the week).

Okay, maybe I'm not being blunt enough:

Support Muslims -> Kill Americans or any non-Muslims.

That is the goal and purpose. There is no excuse for it.
