~FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCES in How Obama Portrayed Islam and the Reality of Christianity~
Speaking at the Islamic Society of Baltimore the day before the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama again sent an ideological message in need of fact-checking to Americans as he called for tolerance toward Muslims and unity of all faiths.
Obama’s visit to the U.S. mosque was controversial because its former imam, Mohamad Adam el-Sheikh, was accused of terrorist connections and the mosque is a Muslim site withdeep ties to extremist elements, including the Muslim Brotherhood. El-Sheikh formed a group whose parent organization provided funds to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist organizations according to the U.S. Treasury Department.
For those who are informed and understand the president’s worldview, nothing he said was surprising. He thanked “Muslim-Americans” for helping to build this country (you read that right), said Islam is not to blame for terrorist attacks, andadded, “We are one American family…”
Mohammad was a blood-thirsty warrior who conquered cities which certainly does not agree the teachings of Jesus Christ. Moreover, there is little assurance of paradise unless a Muslim kills himself and others in the name of Allah.
Christians however, are guaranteed eternal life by trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord (Rom. 10:9-10) and, being saved by God’s grace through faith (Eph. 2:8-10), we are given the Holy Spirit in our hearts as a pledge of our inheritance (2 Cor. 1:22).
According to the Bible, we are not all children of God. In fact, Jesus once said those who were trying to kill him were of their father, the devil (John 8:44). It is true we were created in the image of God, but until a person is born of the Spirit of God, he or she cannot become an adopted child of God. (1 John 4:1-6) Muslims do not accept the authority and deity of Christ.
Who did he thank for building this country?
