"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
This date has been unofficially designated as Patriot Day, in remembrance of the destruction of the two World Trade Center Towers in New York City on this date in 2001. Since that time it has become obvious that a large body of fundamentalist Muslims, organized in a vast terrorist network, has apparently declared war on the United States in particular, as well as on Israel and on western Christendom in general.
Those few Christians who have actually read the Islamic holy book, the Koran, cannot help but be concerned at the many expressions therein of hatred against Christians and Jews, with the intent either to convert or kill all of them. They know from history that the vast spread of Islam across so much of the world many centuries ago was accomplished mainly by the sword, and that the ultimate goal still is nothing less than a Muslim world.
Thankfully, many Muslims are not Koran literalists, especially among those who have migrated to non-Muslim lands, and so do not agree with the Koran's goal. It is a concern, however, that some Muslim leaders in this country have been reticent to condemn the 9-11 attack and similar terrorist assaults in other countries.
Allah, in the Koran, does promise many pleasures of Paradise to Muslims who die as "martyrs," but this is a lie. Allah is not God, but rather a pretender who wants to be accepted as God and has deceived multitudes into believing him. Allah repeatedly denied Christ and so cannot be the true God. He denied the Sonship of Christ, the substitutionary death and resurrection of Christ and many other Biblical truths. Those who think that there is some better way to heaven than through Christ will find they will face judgment instead, after they die. HMM
