With a Different God

Post  Admin on Sat 18 Apr 2009, 12:26 pm

With a Different God

"For there is one God, and one mediator also between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus."

In, James Michener’s novel, The Source, he describes
an ancient family. The father of the family sacrifices
his son to Malek, an ancient God. The mother grieves
while the father then goes and visits the temple
prostitutes. She is deeply grieved at what her husband
is doing in the name of religion. She laments: "With a
different god, he would have been a different man."

How true these words are in real life. Time and again
we've seen the carnage caused by those with a
different god. Bali--until the Islamic terrorist
attack a few short years ago which killed almost 200
people--was looked upon as Paradise by Westerners.

Even since 9-11 many Western leaders and others have
stated how Islam is a peace-loving religion claiming
that we worship the same God. The fact is we don't.
Allah is not the triune God. For Muslims Jesus Christ
is not God the Son nor is he the Savior of the World.
He is only a prophet and second to Mohammad. True, not
all Muslims are terrorists by any means and while most
Muslims are moderate, there are many who take the
Qur'án seriously and are dedicated to the destruction
of Jews, Christians, and the West.

As Chuck Colson points out in BreakPoint, "If you want
evidence of Islamic extremism, just ask any Indonesian
Christian. For nearly three decades, Indonesia's
Christians have endured one outrage after another at
the hands of their Muslim neighbors. In 1975,
Indonesia invaded and annexed East Timor, killing
hundreds of thousands of East Timorese Christians.
Twenty years later, as East Timor gained its
independence, the government again did nothing as more
Christians were slaughtered. In the mid-nineties,
Indonesia's Christian Chinese were made the scapegoat
for the country's economic woes. Again, the government
stood by as Christian businesses, homes, and churches
were looted and burned.

"And in the last few years, an Islamic militia, the
Laksar Jihad, has declared war on Christians living on
the islands of Sulawesi and the Moluccas. The militia,
which includes members from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia,
Albania, and Bosnia, has attacked Christian villages
and forced Christians to either convert to Islam or be

So, says Colson, "Overlooking the true nature of Islam
is not only wrong, it's folly--the kind of folly that
can turn any paradise into hell on earth."2

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, forgive us Westerners for
overlooking the plight of Christians in other lands
where they have been and are being slaughtered in your
name by the thousands. And help us to wake up and
realize that if we continue to turn from you--the one
and only God--we too (or our children's children) may
very well be facing the same kind of terrorism as
Christians in other lands are facing. Thank you for
hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus'
name, amen."
