Following the Pope's quote and reference to a former a Byzantine emperor who didn't think highly of Mohammad, Muslims reacted by bombing 5 churches in the West Bank and killing an Italian nun in Somalia. Now there is the heart of Islam for you!
Make no mistake about it, Islam is not a religion of peace. On the contrary, Islam is all about intolerance, violence and control. Muslims who kill to uphold their religion are ignorant and powerless spiritually. Muslims are intolerant and violent because they know their religion is impotent.
Historically throughout the world people have converted to Islam by compulsion, threats of being killed and brutality for resisting the faith. The irony however is the Muslims doing the acts of violence and seeking to manipulate humanity to embrace their man-made religion truly have no faith in the god they profess to defend himself and his prophet. Allah is certainly NOT the God of the Bible who is loving and long-suffering with all people.
If Muslims truly believed in Allah, they would allow him to fight their battles instead of taking matters into their own hands. Obviously Allah doesn't care about killing people. Hence they do it for him. Nevertheless what should we expect from a religion who does not know their god as a loving father. Thus they are spiritual orphans on edge seeking to somehow be validated in their personhood.
I pity my Muslim friends and truly pray for their salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that they may know the loving heavenly Father above who loves them despite their present darkness and deception.
Muslims tell their sons they must die for god. On the contrary, God the Father through His Son Christ Jesus already died for humanity. Jesus died for us, so we can live wholeheartedly for Him. God is not a killer. God is a life-giver!
The history you ignore is sure to repeat itself. Jesus said "You will know a tree by its fruit." The evident fruit of Islam is Muslim terrorists throughout the world ready to kill anyone who does not agree with them or embrace their religion.
Love rejoices in the truth. If Muslims cannot hear the truth and must resort to violence to run from it, this should not be grounds for us to stop speaking the truth. We have who have an obligation to humanity to speak the truth without compromise. The Pope therefore should never have apologized.
