Listen to today’s broadcast:
I promised you some interviews with Muslims celebrating Eid al-Adha. There are usually celebrations in the parks but there were none that I could find. I do have some other things I want to talk to you about.
I want to remind you that our fall sharathon will be starting in just over a week from now. It is your support that makes this ministry happen. Without your support we cannot broadcast and get the word out. We need the support of you who are presently supporting us just to keep this ministry going and we need others to start supporting us so we can grow this ministry and get on new stations.
I want to quickly mention another example of Christianity being attacked in this nation. We are in the last days and the Rapture of the Saints is quickly approaching. The Bible warns us that there will be persecution and there will be a falling away before the Lord’s return. We can be sure that the world will oppose the values and teachings that come from the Holy Scriptures. The things that are happening should not surprise us.
The thing that concerns me is that this used to be a God fearing nation. There was a time in this country when the Scriptures were respected. Christian values were held high in our school system, in our universities, in our government, and in businesses. This is not true today. Christianity is being attacked on all sides.
Matthew 5:11-12 tells us, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
God gave us this passage to encourage us when things get tough. He tells us that those who suffer persecution are blessed and that we should be glad because our reward in Heaven will be great. If you are not suffering persecution, hang on, it’s coming.
Remember that God said it was coming. He said rejoice and be glad for it will bring great reward, not in this life, but in the next.
The newest attack on Christianity is coming from the US Army. The American Family Association, is a Christian news network that Fortress of Faith will be joining soon, The Pentagon has now listed them as a hate group. They have falsely linked them with the so-called Westboro Baptist group. This group goes to military funerals and protests against the families of our fallen soldiers. They say that this is God’s punishment for being involved in the war.
They are not just anti-gay, they hate gay people. I am against the sin of homosexuality because the Bible is against it, but I don’t hate homosexuals. It is a sexual sin, but all of us are guilty of sin. If we hated all those who sin we would hate everybody.
First of all the Westboro Baptist Church is not Baptist! Secondly I doubt if they are truly Christians. There is nothing in what they do that is Christian or in the spirit of Christianity.
We need to be praying that the Army will apologize for this false caricaturization. This kind of false attack is becoming more and more frequent under the current administration.
Another thing happened during the government shutdown which should concern us. Chaplains, especially Catholic chaplains, were told that they would be arrested if they performed any of their religious duties during the shutdown. There are very few Catholic chaplains in the military today so they have to contract priests to perform the duties. These were civilian contractors that were threatened with arrest. The couldn’t even go to their offices under threat of being arrested.
There is some very disturbing breaking news. Muslims are doing dry runs on airlines testing the staff to see how they will react when they start doing things out of the norm.
This information comes from WTSP channel 10 in Tampa, Fl.
Some passengers are doing some unusual things that make it look like they might be under attack, without really carrying out the real deeds. Things like running toward the cockpit and then, at the last instant, turning into the bathroom. Other Middle Eastern looking men are getting up and walking around opening the overhead bins and closing them, creating a commotion.
What happened to us on 9/11 was a game changer. It caused us to realize that we have to increase our security. I fly quite a bit and every time I go through security, every time I have to take off my shoes, I say thank you Islam
Here is the article:.
Dry Runs — on Airplanes
Source: WTSP – Tampa FL
Orlando, Florida — It was a flight bound for Florida, and some airline pilots believe it also may have been a dry-run for terrorists.
A memo obtained by the 10 News investigators from the union that represents pilots for US Airways says that “there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat.”
Koch says, “What most security experts will tell you that if a dry-run is occurring, the attack will shortly follow.”
The pilots say the most recent dry-run occurred on Flight 1880 on September 2. The flight left Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. and headed to Orlando International.
Crew members say that shortly after takeoff, a group of four “Middle Eastern” men caused a commotion. The witnesses claim one of the men ran from his seat in coach, toward the flight deck door. He made a hard left and entered the forward bathroom “for a considerable length of time.”
While he was in there, the other three men proceeded to move about the cabin, changing seats, opening overhead bins, and “generally making a scene.” They appeared to be trying to occupy and distract the flight attendants.
The 10 News Investigators contacted both US Airways and the Transportation Security Administration both confirmed the incident. US Airways says it won’t discuss the details of security measures, but that it works closely with authorities.
The TSA told us it takes all reports of suspicious activity aboard aircraft seriously, and the matter requires no further investigation at this time.
However, a current Federal Air Marshal who works flights every week says of the TSA, “They’re liars. They’re flat out liars.”
The Air Marshal, whose identity we are not revealing because agency rules prohibit him from talking to the media, says the TSA doesn’t want the flying public to be aware of the problems with terrorist probes.
The Air Marshal and others we have spoken to say several flights they have worked were targets of dry-runs and that most of his colleagues believe no matter what the TSA says, the incident aboard Flight 1880 is serious.
Until now, there has been absolutely no publicity about the US Airways flight from D.C. to Orlando International Airport, but security experts say incidents like this should not and cannot be ignored.
As the Federal Air Marshal and industry insiders tell us, “We’re waiting for the next 9/11 to happen, because it’s not a question of if. It’s a question of when.”
Again, this threat comes from the religion of peace. We are being told that Islam is being hijacked by a few radical that are giving Islam a bad name. They like to quote Sura 5:32, which they misquote. They will tell you that it says that if a man kills a person it is like he killed every person in the world. They say this means that Islam is against the killing of innocent people. The context of this verse it talking about the Jews, not the Muslims. The next verse, verse 33, explains what Muslims will do to the non Muslims. It says they will crucify them, they will execute them, they will cut off their limbs, etc.
I would like for a Muslim who quotes this verse to continue reading the next verse. If you ever have a Muslim use this verse to say that Islam is a religion of peace challenge him to read the next verse. It would be interesting to see his reaction and response.
