INSANITY ON A GRAND SCALE.
Here are a couple of links.
This second link shows something of the kind of anti-Christian persecution which exists.
The first link above is a very disturbing story about the kind of insanity which man-made religion causes. A Christian woman drinks from a well, she is then commanded to 'convert' to Islam because she has 'defiled' the well. Why? Is her conversion supposed to miraculously clean up the well? Someone then complains to the authorities about her having blasphemed the 'holy prophet' Mohammed. I wonder what she's supposed to have said? It would appear that simply refusing to convert is considered blasphemy. I mean, after all, if you refuse to convert to Islam, is that not a slight against Allah, and therefore blasphemous? I could be wrong, but I think that would fit in with the rest of mad-mullah doctrine rather well.
The question is, why do they choose to believe in something which is so plainly evil?
The scripture tells us this:
AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION THAT THEY BELIEVE A LIE. (2 Thessalonians 2:11.)
These words tell us that God's power is behind it. This is God's judgement - Christ's judgement. Whole nations have been sent this delusion - look at what they believe. What an awful thing to be left under such darkness. The next question is, why? I would answer by saying that God is teaching us by experience and example (which is the best way) of the destructive power of sin. The power which rules in every one of us. A question often asked is: 'If God is so good and so powerful, why is there so much suffering and death in the world? I would reply with the same answer - to teach us. Why did Christ come? He came to do and he came to teach. To teach us what? He came to teach us the truth. Why does the Bible exist? It exists to teach us. To teach us the truth.
This is all-important. It is all-important to bear in mind that everything happens to teach us. So that we will ultimately come to know the truth. Remember what the scripture says?
AND YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. (John 8: 32.)
Free from what? Free from sin. Are we any better than the cruel people shown on the clips? The answer is no. Because left to ourselves we have no idea of the wickedness we are all capable of.
We have no idea how evil sin is - not in the slightest. We may think that we have because it is easy to recognise it in certain acts, but it takes God's help to see it in its true colours. To see it in ourselves. Sin is what rules in every one of us, absolutely. The power of God alone, the power of Jesus Christ, can free us from this bondage of not knowing, not believing the truth.
We cannot do it of ourselves - we must ask.
ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU; SEEK, AND YE SHALL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU.
The invisible power of the invisible God - ask for it - today - now.
