Episode Info: In Part 2 of our discussion, we delve deeper into the reasons behind both the Holy Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. Were these really Christian in construct, or are we continuing to propagate an error because it is “Politically Correct” to do so? First we have to be clear on some details. The abhorrent acts on the part of ISIS or other Islamic terrorists against those it regards as “Infidels” is in perfect keeping with the tenets of Islam. The word Islam, again, means “Submission.”  One who is Muslim is essentially agreeing to subordinate their will to that which is required of Islam. Those requirements are spelled out in the Qur’an and the Hadiths – Muslim equivalents of Christian Holy Scripture. In Islam, peace is attained by total and absolute conformity. There is no spiritual aspect to this conformity – the religion is based very much in temporal and the actions of the flesh. Thus physical coercion to attain the goal is perfectly acceptable as the end goal is to remove any contrary thought and deed. Any Muslim who works towards this end – be it they be members of ISIS, al-Qaeda, or just the average Muslim going about his business in America - are thus doing what the Qur’an and Hadiths require. In Christianity, the exact opposite is true. Christ never advocated violence and His goals were Spiritual in nature, rather than temporal and fleshly. In addressing Pontius Pilot, Christ stated very clearly, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place." Christ explained that His goals for humanity were for their liberation from the temporal and fleshly and to become one with Him in the Spirit in the Eternal. Paul explains the “Fruits of the Spirit,” or what could otherwise be termed, the Character of Father God Almighty in his letter to the Galatian Church which reads: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” When Barack Obama equated Muslim terrorists with those who engaged in barbaric acts as ChristiansRead more »
