Terror, Persecution, and Unity in our diversity



I was thinking about international events, the Berlin terror attack yesterday and church bombings in Egypt last week, in particular, and request that we pray for those that are victims of terrorism and persecuted for their faith.

Also pray for America and Illinois that we might find unity in our diversity, and what do we have to be united on? The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Liberty and Justice for all. E Pluribus Unum: out of many, one.

This is such an important message that transcends so much of what divides us.

Security: terrorism, jihad, and islam (notes and links)



A work in progress to be updated. Some personal notes for my family to understand the nature of the threat...

First principles:

  1. "Watch out that no one deceives you." (Matthew 24:4)

  2. Recognize false prophets by their deeds
    "Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves. You’ll recognize them by their fruit." (Matthew 7:15-16)
    As noted below, the fruit of Islam has not been good.

  3. "Satan disguises himself as an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14)
    It is my understanding it was an "angel of light" that Mohamed saw in the cave.

We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.
By Shaykh Abu Muhammad al-‘Adnani ash-Shami, Islamic State spokesman, September 2014.
