WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO STOP ISLAM'S 'TOWER OF BABEL'
At this time the Islamic attempt to reconstruct its dreaded version of the Tower of Babel is entering the final stages of completion. The hope of upward mobility and creative expression, along with the many other individual and collective freedoms to which first world citizens have long been accustomed, are dangerously close to being confiscated permanently out of the realm of human possibility unless the Christian community is willing to rise to the challenge before it is too late. This is not a war that can be accurately defined according to mere cultural schematics for it is nothing less than a war between good and evil.
Please do not accuse me of suggesting that believers in the Islamic faith are inherently evil. Muslims are clearly people who have suffered great injustices to which I have no desire to contribute, but if they have suffered injustice it is the result of the very ideological oppression they are attempting to force upon those who live by the tenets of a higher moral standard. What I believe is that they have failed to embrace even the most basic moral principles that we have come to assume is the incumbent upon every thinking adult. The stiff reality is that all participants in this global battle of humanity against itself, be they Christian or Muslim, are personally responsible for understanding the origins, historicity, core beliefs and societal consequences of the religious ideologies they practice. Unfortunately, this is not a responsibility most people of either faith are on record for taking very seriously--not Christians, not Muslims.
However, the truth is that Muslims are far less inclined than their Christian counterparts to grapple with hard ethical issues mostly because the Islamic doctrine that governs them does not allow for that possibility. According to Quranic text anyone questioning the commandments of Mohammed should be met with swift reprisal from the Islamic community. In many cases this has meant beatings, stonings, acid skin-burning and even beheadings. For most muslims trapped within this culture of seething terror, it simply is better 'not to know too much'. One of the techniques that permits the devout Muslim to retain blind 'innocence' is to embrace the arduous tradition of memorizing Quranic scripture in its unintelligible old Arabic form, a practice which affords the advantage of allowing one to remain perpetually exempted from the burden of having to evaluate its content accurately.
In contrast, if the Christian fails in his or her responsibility to clearly understand the biblical message it is certainly not because of any threat of coercive societal backlash and certainly not because the doctrine itself advocates scriptural illiteracy. In fact, the entire scriptural text encourages development of independent moral insights and character assessment as exemplified by the men who wrote the various books that are compiled in it. If the Christian fails in these responsibilities of good discipleship he must blame himself and not the Christian doctrine.
For the Islamic community the result has been that most of its members are earnestly promulgating the agenda of what biblical prophecy identifies as an anti-Christ cult of abomination. Most Christians, meanwhile, are unwitting but adamant supporters of the many bastardized and heretical versions of Jehovah's authentic doctrine of hope. The prevailing ignorance that characterizes both groups threatens to at best prevent and at worst annihilate the Christ-promise for humanity.
If the Muslim people are more prone to commit the worst crimes against humanity it is because the most fundamental necessities of psychological health are manically denied them by a 'religious' doctrine that requires absolute creative suffocation, sado-masochistic gender roles, perverted sexual authorizations and brutal reprisals for those who seek a saner, more humane vision of life. Thinking individuals among them have either been terrorized into an inescapable psychotic rage or suicidal helplessness. The only doctrinal outlet provided the faithful Islamist is to direct their fears, anger and jealousies against those that live as they secretly wish they could. The cold reality is that in spite of the great wealth that has passed through the hands of oil-rich Muslim nations, these territories have been utterly incapable of establishing societies that come anywhere close to the political vision of liberty and justice for all. To obfuscate the shame of its leadership their masses have been trained to direct their hopeless frustrations, not against themselves, but against those living in the cultures of liberation that they envy. Through some convoluted collective reasoning process, the Islamic citizenry has concluded that its failure to embrace the basic rules of societal compassion is somehow the fault of those that reside in cultures founded upon the more humane morality of Judeo-Christianity.
So what we are dealing with, on the one hand, is a monolithic ideology that promotes ignorant self-preservation, cruelty, hatred, jealously and rage within the hearts of those that practice it. To make matters worse, every Muslim male is permitted under Shariah Law to marry up to four wives. Consequently, Islam is multiplying at an exponentially explosive rate.
The greater tragedy, however, is the fact that there is a solution for this dilemma but it has been an impotent, non-viable solution for the sad reason that those practicing the Christian religion of 'love and tolerance' are currently too fractured and doctrinally infiltrated to launch the necessary spiritual challenge that is required to halt the spread of the Islamic societal infection. This is NOT a call to pick up arms, although this may be the solution of last resort if millions of church-attending Christians continue to fail in their mission to 'spiritually' contain the serpents and scorpions that are threatening to implement the imminent, and potentially absolute, destruction of human civilization.
If truth is an absolute, and it is, then so is biblical doctrine. The actual commandments of Jehovah are clear, concise, implementable and, above all, protective and empowering. The name of the son who died to give humanity its greatest hope is not 'Jesus'. It is Yeshua. The correct Sabbath is not the first day of the week. It is the seventh day. December 25th is, and always has been, the birth date of Jehovah's nemesis, Zeus (aka Baal). Easter is, and always has been, the resurrection date of another of Jehovah's nemeses, Ashtaroth (aka ISIS-Sound familiar?). Christ rose early on the first day, meaning he rose on what we would call Saturday shortly after sunset. Moreover, we are not commanded to honor either his birthdate nor his resurrection date. The celebrations we are instructed to observe are those which Christ himself observed. They are documented unequivocally in the book of Deuteronomy, not just for the Israelites but for all the strangers that live among them. The 'simplicity that is in Christ' was represented plainly by the altar the Israelites were required to build while in the wilderness with Moses:
And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people,
saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.
2 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan
unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee,
that thou shalt set thee up great stones,
and plaister them with plaister:
3 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law,
when thou art passed over,
that thou mayest go in unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee,
a land that floweth with milk and honey;
as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee.
4 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan,
that ye shall set up these stones,
which I command you this day,
in mount Ebal,
and thou shalt plaister them with plaister.
5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the Lord thy God,
an altar of stones:
thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.
6 Thou shalt build the altar of the Lord thy God of whole stones:
and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the Lord thy God:
7 And thou shalt offer peace offerings,
and shalt eat there,
and rejoice before theLord thy God.
8 And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly.
This is an altar symbolic of simple truth-not Hollywood, not Disneyland, not the 'leavened' doctrines of our day. Each stone from each tribe representative of the austere mission to uphold and disseminate the visionary edicts of our trustworthy morality-giver engraved clearly upon them.
As I write this last text, the construction of an archway dedicated to Baal is being completed in both the cities of New York and London. How did we come to this? YHWH gave us a way out of the misery our enemies rejoice to watch us suffer. We still have the hope but its light is quickly dimming. There is so much more at stake than one's 'personal' salvation. Unfettered indulgence in self-focus was the tempting seduction effectively inflicted upon large numbers of inchoate Christian seekers by an enemy practiced in the art of enlarging human appetites. In reality, Christianity was never supposed to have been a private event. Biblical accounts are always descriptive of individuals sacrificing themselves in order to benefit the greater community-hence, the commandment given by Christ 'to love as he loved', meaning to lay down one's life for one's fellow man. It is an all or nothing proposition. Now is the time. There is no other. To make no decision is to make the wrong decision. You must choose.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth,
that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,
that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
And the whole earth was of one language,
and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east,
that they found a plain in the land of Shinar;
and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another,
Go to, let us make brick,
and burn them thoroughly.
And they had brick for stone,
and slime had they for morter.
4 And they said, Go to,
let us build us a city and a tower,
whose top may reach unto heaven;
and let us make us a name,
lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower,
which the children of men builded.
6 And the Lord said,
Behold, the people is one,
and they have all one language;
and this they begin to do:
and now nothing will be restrained from them,
which they have imagined to do.
7 Go to, let us go down,
and there confound their language,
that they may not understand one another's speech.
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad
from thence upon the face of all the earth:
and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel;
because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth:
and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad
upon the face of all the earth.
