Wisdom and The Truth

Here is something for everyone to think about....

The following is an email from a Christian pastor and as I read through it I was reminded about the fool who says in his heart, "There is no God."


During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained their beliefs.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say.

The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.

After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven.

If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?' There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, "Non-believers!"

I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'

The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.'

He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.' I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'

The Muslim was speechless!

I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question:

Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?'

You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the Diversification training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslim's beliefs.

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President!

Now can you understand the importance of listening to the truth? If you are a Christian can you understand the importance of sharing the LOVE of Christ with everyone you meet today?

Man's ignorance in thinking he knows all that there is to be known has always amazed me. True wisdom is gained from what we have experienced in life. There is nothing in this life that you can say for a certainty, unless you have seen, or experienced directly or indirectly that which pertains to your statements, beliefs, or faith. In other words, to say you know God dose not exist just because you personally have not experienced a life changing event is nothing less than pure ignorance.
