Skip to comments.Nation-building? No, Christian-building (Liberation Zotology!)
Posted on 03/20/2011 10:41:31 AM PDT by EllisWashingtonReport
Last week a radio host was interviewing a Muslim convert to Christianity who had recently written a book chronicling his conversion and the extreme measures he now must undergo to protect himself and his family from this religion of peace. What was noteworthy was the profound sentiment he expressed America must use its military to go to every Muslim nation in the world and convert them to Christianity; it is the only way to end the Muslim jihad against the West, against Christianity and against civilization.
Why dont our politicians speak with such clarity and moral authority?

Oh good grief. Our military's purpose is to destroy things. Our government should not be in the business of mission work, that is for the Church. IF we convert people to Christianity at the end of a barrel of a gun, then it isn't conversion but coercion and is completely un-Christian.
Any reason you feel a need to excerpt your own material? It would be appreciated if you could post your offerings in full.
And welcome to FR.
Jesus Christ would NEVER advocate conversion at the business end of a gun. Using the military to “evangelize” is completely the wrong approach.
Oh my. I agree with you. So many people in evangelicalism today think the Great Commission is to use force to get people to act a certain way. It is discouraging, sometimes.
A heathen you force to act the way you prefer is still a hell-bound heathen. You have accomplished nothing but increasing your vanity.
For some reason, this blogger strikes me as someone playing a parody of what the left things the religious right is about. Way too over the top.
and convert them to Christianity;
It is the person who must open the door **willingly** to Christ knocking on their door.
“Convert” people by force? It’s never going to happen. Ultimately I would/will die for my faith and I wouldn’t expect a Muzzie to be any different.
Do you really think anyone here would click on your website after reading that ridiculous excerpt?
And why, may I ask, are you excerpting your own material?
Guess this 'person' don't know much about Christianity. Mmm, mmm
Over the top is right.
If this is his facebook page, he seems to be a leftist theologian and a fan of Zero.
Posts praising Obama, cheering for unemployment benefits while at the same time, deriding the rich.
Why? The west is infected with leftist vermin. These vermin are on the same side as the Muslims. They are selfish monsters who exist for no other purpose but to seek power and subjugate others through force. In some ways they are even more power hungry than the Muslims. At least the Muslims hesitate before sacrificing their young for “the cause”.
Until the leftists are completely destroyed, there is no hope of stopping Islam. Evil will rule the world for all generations.
I did, just out of curiosity. It links to the source, which is World Net Daily.
What is the difference between rape and seduction?
The west has generated a awfully fine modern man due to Christianity. That modern man has inventions, gadgets, employment, education and broad spectrum infrastructure that Islam has not been able to generate. In the west we had the evolution of philosophy inclusive of reformation which all contributed to such things as the Magna Carta, democracy , rights , freedom and liberty.
What has islam produced for its people? Show me one invention for modern man. They too recognize the failures and that is a portion of their uprisings and parroting of western words....democracy, freedom, rights...... and liberty is soon to come.
Well? You have a lot of challenges here. What’s wrong, cat got your tongue?
Spreading the Cross by the Sword is evil in itself
We must repent and get right with God and be an example again
That’s exactly what I was thinking. ...A troll maybe?
Unthinkable(God Forbid=don’t even think it)for us to represent our Saviour with a war of agression!
He taught: “Blessed are the peacemakers!”
Our Saviour taught us to love and to pray for our enemies!
I like what our John Ascroft said when asked about the Islam religion.
He said: “Islam is a religion whose God sends out their sons to die for their God! Christianity is a faith whose God sent His Son to die for us!”
and also UnAmerican..
How about we convert you to Zot?
Indeed. Contrary to popular belief, Christianity has almost never come to a people at sword point. Leave forced conversion to Islam. That’s not how the Church does business.
My freshman high school journalism teacher would have given me a D on this assignment, after he sarcastically read it aloud to the class.
No thought of his own and slamming Christians with the Marine Corp Hymn !!?!!
It wasn't his material- it linked from his site to World Net Daily.
That said- it's still absurd. That's not what the military is for, and it isn't what Christianity is about. It's also not what is happening.
Islam is spreading itself by the sword however- just ask the Copts in Egypt, or the Fogels in Israel, or the northern Israeli towns that ate fifty mortar rounds/rockets the other day.
We're not going to descend to their level.
I think that the late poster's point in submitting this was to make us look shallow and flighty.
Same author listed on the WND article.
I stand corrected.
Not just any ‘troll’.
There are people out there now that do nothing
but pretend they’re something they’re not. I read about this somewhere.
More then just trolls. This seems to be just the type of subject they
would want to use.
Hit and run hired hack.
Christians do not “convert” anyone, ever.
We are just the messengers or the good news of salvation through the Christ Jesus.
The conversion (of the heart) is the work of the Holy Spirit.
Never has been ... never will be our job to convert.
I think it was Ann Coulter who said regarding Arabs, “kill their leaders and convert the people to Christianity”.

Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my Viking Kitty/ZOT ping list!. . . don't be shy.
Oops. I forgot the ping list in my post.
How about we convert you to Zot?Now that's funny!
Cruise missile zot!
Conversion to Christianity implies a regenerated human spirit.
No human being has the ability to regenerate another person’s spirit, including his own, however, God the Holy Spirit has that ability. He performs that action to glorify the Son, upon those whom God the Father has called and who believe in God Incarnate died in place of them for the payment of their sin on the Cross, making it possible for all men to have forgiveness by God and return into fellowship with Him.
First ZOT since the late not too missed pissant! SNIFF!
Aw, are you feeling nostalgic already? Sniff. Me too.
