The Bible vs. The Koran — They’re the same?

This world is going crazy!?! 

One has to wonder how we can twist things so badly and still consider ourselves sane?!  Political Correctness has gotten totally out of control.  I can understand a person who is less educated and/or not well informed making some very bad comparisons and to say some pretty dumb things.  But you’d think that someone with a ‘great deal’ of education would get it right … a OFTEN.  Apparently not..?

The following article came from The Blaze.  Although I am not an Islamic scholar, I can reasonably figure out the ‘message’ in the Koran, and can as well with the bible.  The Koran clearly spells out that jihad and violence in general are ‘required’ by those who believe.  ALL no ‘believers’ must be converted or killed.  And if you look at the violence being perpetrated on this world by Muslims, it should be clear that those people are the ‘true‘ followers of the Koran.

The bible clearly directs in the new testament that those who believe are to ‘love our neighbors as we do ourselves’.  There’s no spin on that statement.  Now I ask you, how could anyone rationalize that the bible is teaching the same thing as the Koran when it comes to proselytizing..??

Read what the ‘most religious man in the world’ has to say on this subject.


 

Pope Francis recently addressed fears of Islam and the religion’s “idea of conquest” in an interview with French Catholic newspaper La Croix, proposing that some people might also see the call for conquest as being inherent in Matthew’s gospel.

 

Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam,” the pontiff said when asked about fears surrounding Islam. “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.

Jesus said the following to his disciples in Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

The Washington Post reported that the pontiff’s words might have been in reference to “jihad,” an Islamic principle that the outlet said is sometimes believed to mean “holy war,” but that it is “more accurately understood as a kind of spiritual struggle.”

The outlet pondered whether Pope Francis was comparing this idea to Christian proselytizing.

He also went on to say that it would be beneficial to question the way in which “an overt Western model of democracy” has been brought to countries such as Iraq and Libya, saying that the former once had a strong government. Taking culture into account, he said, is essential to making advancements.


 

I get the impression that the pope isn’t too fond of us …  being the war mongers that we are..?  And this commentary by him isn’t his first unusual statement.  Like indicating that Jesus Christ and Allah are the same person..?  I guess if Rick Warren is dumb enough to say it, the pope can.

We sure are building up a reputation in this world, huh?  Not even our allies trust us any more.  A sad state indeed.

  1. I don’t understand this post. Who is the Pope not fond of? How is the Old Testament not even more militaristic than the Koran? No Muslim would say that Jesus and Allah are the same person. Allah and Jehovah are the same.

  2. I often TRY to at least understand the “other side”, not necessarily agree, just understand. Guess I am just lacking in brain cells, because I just can NOT even understand what I think is their absolute lack of common sense and logic.

    Glad I live outside the US for now. I wish my income was not tied to US economics, but such is life. I do have great concern for my family and friends still there, though.

    Hope all is well with you and yours. We will be buying a car and taking a 3 to 6 month trip through the US visiting family and friends somewhere around the end of 2017 hitting Idaho, Washington, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Colorado, Canada, Nevada, and, California. It would be great to get together with you guys for lunch or dinner when we go through Texas. As we get closer to the trip, we will start scheduling visits.

    After that we are looking at, probably Belize, but Tracy has recently become more interested in surfing, so our next stop is going to have to include great surfing beaches along with great scuba diving. I am not yet sure how much good surfing is in Belize for beginners, so we shall see. Either way, we will be somewhere in the Caribbean or Asia by 2018.

    Take care, Guy
