Terry Jones, Love Will Not Win For You

Let me make this clear: There is nothing wrong for standing up for the Cause of Christ, for the Church, for the Scriptures – but when you purposely attack another, you become what you supposedly hate. What he has done now is to cause the death of innocents because he wasn’t following Christ. He is rejecting Christ. An American Christian preacher who caused an international uproar last year by threatening to burn the Koran has put himself back in the spotlight after incinerating Islam’s holy book — again with deadly consequences. Thousands of protesters in northern Afghanistan, enraged over

Bible the Word of God? – an Islamic view

I know the Bible to be the Word of God. Dr Amir Nasri, the professor of philosophy at the Islamic Azad University, Iran, has a different understanding: Westerners do not consider the Bible as words of divinity, but call it as instructions of Jesus Christ. Accordingly, the art of calligraphy has no place in there. On the contrary, according to Islamic instructions, the Holy Quran is the word of God and so in order to propagate it we have applied different forms of arts such as calligraphy. Therefore, this art has a particular position in our religion. I’m guessing

Meditations for Today – 9/11

From the Qur’an – Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (for the right); they rehearse the Signs of Allah all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knoweth well those that do right (3:113-115 AYA). Nearest among them

Burning’s Back On! Terry Jones ‘Lied To’

The Florida pastor whose plan to burn Qurans on Sept. 11 generated worldwide outrage among Muslims and pressure by the U.S. government to relent said late Thursday that he might not call off the protest after all. Pastor Terry Jones told NBC News that “we are a little back to square one” after a supposed deal involving a proposed Islamic cultural center in New York evaporated. At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Jones had said he was canceling the Quran burning because a Muslim imam had assured him that the proposed Islamic center could be moved away from the

Fresh from Tennessee… Another Pastor, Another Threat to Burn Muslims, I mean the Qu’ran

See what Terry started? The longtime Baptist minister says the Rev. Terry Jones of the Dove World Center Outreach in Gainesville, Fla., is doing the right thing by burning the Quran. So he’s going to do likewise. Old plans to set fire to a Quran on Saturday at his home and then post a video of the burning book online. And if he had his way, there would be no Muslims in America. “If they want to have their religion, they can have it somewhere else,” said Old, former pastor of First Baptist Church in Joelton and Academy Heights

Acts 19:17-19, Prooftexting and Qu’ran burning. Seriously, just read the bible

The story of what happened spread quickly all through Ephesus, to Jews and Greeks alike. A solemn fear descended on the city, and the name of the Lord Jesus was greatly honored. Many who became believers confessed their sinful practices. A number of them who had been practicing sorcery brought their incantation books and burned them at a public bonfire. The value of the books was several million dollars. (Act 19:17-19 NLT) Today, a commentator tried to tell me that the above passage gave license to what Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center is planning on doing. I’ll

Moving Ahead with Burning the Qu’ran…oh and the Talmud

This is Terry’s Gospel This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also. If you are sued in court and your shirt is taken from you, give your coat, too. If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles. (Mat 5:39-41 NLT) See the difference? TC notes, “We realize that this action would indeed offend people, offend the Muslims. I am offended when they burn the flag. I am offended when they
