Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Willing Ignorance

Listen to today’s broadcast:

willingignoranceWe live in a time where persecution of Christianity and Christians is on the rise. It is no longer veiled and disguised with innuendos and suggestive remarks. Battle lines are being drawn up. Before long pastors and other Christians are going to be prosecuted for speaking out for Christian values and against sin like the sin. They are already going after Christian businesses for denying service to people based on their sexual preferences. You will be fined, treated as a criminal, and, in the future, maybe even jailed for your stand on biblical standards.

I don’t have the time, nor is it the purpose of this ministry, to lay out the basis for all Christian doctrine. It is, however, our purpose to encourage Christians to stand for righteousness. God has called Christians to be salt a light. I believe that one of the reasons for the problems we face in North America is that Christians have failed to be salt and light when immorality and unrighteousness has raised their ugly heads in our communities.

We have allowed the situation to get so bad that it is becoming difficult for Christians to stand up for righteousness. Our nations have fallen deeper and deeper into immorality and we in North America have known better, we’ve had the Gospel, we’ve had the truth but we have not upheld biblical precepts. The result is that God is sending judgment upon us.

I have been saying for the last five years that Islam is the judgment that God has raised up against us. We also see God’s judgment in other areas such as economic problems, natural disasters, and the list goes on.

We have come to a day where lies have been told so much and become so accepted that it is hard to find truth. We have been buying the lies. Some so called Christians are even suggesting that sodomy is not really a sin. They are flirting with the world and getting into bed with carnality and rebellion.

Let me bring your attention to a passage of Scripture.

2 Peter 3:3-10 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”

In verse five of this passage it says “they willingly are ignorant.” They are willingly ignorant of the past judgment of the flood and therefore willingly ignorant of the judgment to come.

Verse nine says that God is not slack concerning his promise, but that He puts up with man’s sin for a while because He wants all to be saved. Verse ten continues by assuring us that judgment is coming, a judgment in which all of this world will be destroyed.

Verse five tells us that people are willingly ignorant of these things. They choose to not to hear the warnings. They choose to pretend that there is no judgment coming.

We are becoming more and more accustom to lies. They are being fed to us from every angle. For example they tell us there is no Creator or divine Designer. They say poof, bang, it all fell into place. They say we evolved and therefore we have not divine moral obligation to a Creator. Every natural, thinking person has to look around and say that can’t be true, but so many believe it anyway.

They tell us it is not a Baby, its just tissue, a fetus and it is not immoral to kill it. Every thinking person would have to agree that is not true. Still, many believe it anyway.

We are told Islam is a peaceful religion and that we have nothing to fear. We are told it is not a religion of the sword, of murder, and of terror. They say that a few have taken over the religion making it into something it is not. All we have to do is look at Islam’s history to know that is not so. Many still believe the lie.

We are told that it is two consenting adults, just an alternate lifestyle. Homosexual couples are equal to other couples. We are told that it is not sin. Every thinking person knows this is not true. Science shows it is not true because the laws of genetics say the gene would die out. Still, many choose to believe this lie.

Why are these lies accepted? Because the main stream voice is the loudest and political correctness and the desire to be accepted and not ridiculed drives us to accept what we know is not true.

I could continue with many other things but I think you understand what I am saying.

We need to understand that God’s way is always right. Any time you and I try to alter it, it is wrong, it is destructive, and it will result in dangerous consequences.

We should not be surprised at the present situation. We have been warned in the Word of God that this time was coming.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
