CHRISTIANS, THE THREAT
or THE THREATENED
A 2015 poll
conducted by Clout Research, a national opinion research firm, asked “Which do
you believe pose the greatest threat to America – Muslims or Christians?”
Startling were the results! Forty-five percent of Democrats polled believe that
Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims. Twenty percent of
Republicans polled agreed as did seventy-two percent of atheists, 29%
Protestants and 23% Catholics. But why?
believer in Christ did not murder the victims in the Orlando LGBT nightclub
massacre! A Christian couple did not lay deadly siege to the gathering in San
Bernardino, California. Born-again believers did not destroy the Twin Towers.
Christians did not attack the Paris nightclub or storm the offices of the
satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo! True Christians do not stone people to
death, behead or burn them alive, or force young girls to prostitute themselves
for a religion! Nor do real Christians adhere to penal codes that implement
amputations and floggings.
not attempting to extinguish any or all religions under the edict of ‘death to
all’ if their beliefs are not followed! Christians realize that every
individual is a sinner in need of Jesus Christ, regardless of skin color,
gender, economic status, religious affiliation including Islam, political party,
ethnicity. Therefore, true believers speak-out against sin, all sin, but they
do not murder in the name of God! It is radical Muslim terrorists with an
unflinching allegiance to their god Allah and an obsessive willingness to murder
for him, who walk our streets, enter the malls, and search out other public
places with a lethal intent to bathe our country in tears of sorrow and American
blood! So, who is the real threat?
are fanatics within all religions along with millions who vilify the name of
“Christian” by claiming to be one, when, in fact, they are not!
Nevertheless, liberals enjoy citing violent acts by so-called ‘Christian’
terrorists (attacks on abortion doctors, pro-choice and abortion clinics) while
overlooking or deliberately ignoring that these vicious acts are not associated
with the murderous Islamic ideology of “kill the infidel”!
True bible believing Christians are not an enemy to America, radical
methodical, hate-driven attacks are perpetrated to destroy Christianity, to
terminate all who do not accept Allah and to defeat all our freedoms. While
these acts are worthy of a united and vigorous war against the radical Islamic
terror, many in our government and some current presidential hopefuls are
touting understanding, tolerance, and open-mindedness while the populace listens
to various ‘experts’ and imams who claim Islam to be a peaceful religion!
Peaceful? Christians speak-out against homosexuality, but do not condone
killing homosexuals! Christians speak-out against false religions and false
doctrines, but do not execute those who disagree! Where is the Christian
It would appear
that the threat to those polled has nothing to do with Muslims and their
religion, but with the Word of God, and those who proclaim it! Unbelievers love
their self-righteousness (Romans 10:3). Atheists and agnostics are taken in by
falsehoods (Psalm 109:2). The unsaved want to keep their sin(s) without them
being exposed (Ephesians 5:11-13), and Satan has blinded the world (II
Corinthians 4:4) to the truth! Capsulized, people want to live their lives
according to their will, NOT God’s, and they feel threatened by Christians
witnessing to the contrary. Frankly, our government is abetting this so-called
“fear”. According to a 2012 joint report by Liberty Institute and Family
Research Council, the “government agencies around the U.S. are trying to push
Christian expression out the door.” It appears the government’s plan is working
since nativities are increasingly banned from display, “Christmas” is replaced
with “holiday”, prayer is barred from public places, crosses are being removed,
etc. If in doubt about the government’s involvement, just ask the Christian
Christians are not the threat, but the threatened!
