Default Christianity Confronts Islam

http://www.whitehorseinn.org/\

This is a 40 minute interview (on an audio file - you can read posts on the forum while you listen) with "Sam Solomon". "Sam Solomon" is the pseudonym of a Muslim convert to Christianity who must hide his identity due to death threats by Muslims. He was born a Muslim in a Middle-Eastern country and was an expert on Shariah. You will learn more about Islam in this 40 minute interview than you have in years of news reports by the media.

When the war does come do we fight or do we turn the other cheek?

I've been conflicted about this.


These extremists won't rest until we're all eliminated.

What do we do when the war reaches home?

I'll fight to the death if need be.

That's what my heart says.

Fight tooth and nail scratch and claw and try and save the world from these people

I was conflicted about what the bible would say on the matter though.

It's an interesting subject to talk about. Any bible scholars want to chime in here?

If you figure that evil must overcome the world before apocolypse that could easily be considered Islam considering it's contrary to what the bible tells us.

Then the eventual Muslim takeover is going to happen no matter what.

But I figure what if that is wrong and God is giving us a new test. To fight to keep freedom of faith.

Christian suffered for generations under the Romans until a leader arose and saved our faith from persecution. Constantine the great.

When and if the Muslims take power does that signal the apocolypse or are we in for another hard fought battle against an enemy in the way of our ability to save souls.


Thoughts?

Personally I don't believe the church will be here at the Apocolypse but in regards to Islam taking over I don't think it will. I believe the Bible teaches that one world religion that is Ecuminical will be Babylon. Most of Christianity is apostate now anyway so it's not like we are heading for a battle against Islam. The most prominent "Christian" preachers of our time preach that Islam is a way to heaven. That is just as damaging as anything Islam can do.

There is nothing unbiblical about fighting in a war. Christ's command to "turn the other cheek" is in reference to personal vendettas based on human pride and a sense of revenge. It has nothing to do with fighting for freedom against a tyrannical oppressor.
