Clearing the Air

I just read an article about Muslims burning an effigy of the Pope over some comments he made regarding Mohammed. While they burned the effigy, others spoke of how peace-loving Muslims are. Is anyone out there confused over the whole image? This group insists on acceptance and tolerance, yet reacts with violence towards any and all who disagree with them. Yes, there are moderate Muslims, some of whom have been condemned by some of their own. What does that earn them?

Peace-loving, or not, here is the plain truth: only Jesus Christ saves. No man's religion will save him. No woman's works will save her. Faithfulness and strict adherance to one's beliefs will not save. ONLY JESUS CHRIST SAVES! It's not about being Baptist, Methodist, or any other "ist;" it's about that personal relationship with the Son of God.

We must return to boldly proclaiming the truth of the Gospel. Away with our modern-day softness! Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.

Jesus is Lord!

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it IS the power of God to save, for the Jew first and then to Greek, for the one born in a "Christian" nation and the one born in a "Muslim" nation. Our thoughts or comments on Islam are irrelevant. It is that personal relationship with Jesus Christ that brings eternal life.

May the God of Peace continue to bless your ministry.
