Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Obama Obstructs Islamic Terrorism Investigations – Part 3

ObamaGunsAccording to Haney, there is an intentional effort to shift the narrative. If they are not going to blame Islam, they have to blame someone. He said that the mosque in Florida is tied to the same movement as the mosque in California where the San Bernardino terrorists went. During the second purge, they not only got rid of Phil Haney, they deleted 67 records with all the biometrics, passports, birthdays, etc. on these people. This included the shooters in San Bernardino.

Phil Haney says they have come up with a new program. It is called “Countering Violent Extremism.” Instead of blaming Islam, they are blaming violent extremism. They will include ISIS, but Obama says ISIS is not Islamic. He says the purpose is to make it racist.

We need to remember that Islam is not a race. Although it comes out of Arabia, only about 15% of Muslims are Arabs.

According to this administration, according to Black Lives Matter (who has joined with the Muslim Brotherhood), it is white people, its the conservatives, its the Christians. This leads us to our next subject.

Why Are Christians Blamed For The Attack In Orlando?

The left has labeled us as extremists because we believe in gun rights, freedom of religion, etc.

There are two reasons that the left and much of the media is blaming Christians for Orlando. First they blame Christians for creating an environment of hate against the LGBT community. Secondly Christians and conservatives are always protecting gun rights.

We need to understand that the liberal world view is that man is inherently good. They believe that the individual is not responsible for doing bad things, it is their environment that causes them to do evil things. They believe that the gun, not the person using the gun, is the evil. In other words, when the shooter picked up the gun it made him evil. He wasn’t evil before he bought it, and if he couldn’t have bought it, nothing would have happened. I suppose we should also ban pressure cookers, because they must have made the Boston bombers evil.

The Christian world view is different. The biblical view is that man is inherently evil. The Bible says that we are all sinners.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Romans 5:12)

This is the condemnation, but verse 19 gives us the remedy.

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. (Romans 5:19)

We are all sinners by nature, but we find redemption in Jesus Christ. This next passage tells us where evil deeds come from.

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. (Mark 7:21-23)

Here are some other passages that teach the same thing:

The heart is deceitful above all thing, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9)

This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead. (Ecclesiastes 9:3)

Of course, the liberals don’t want to accept this. They don’t want to point the finger at themselves, they want to blame something else.

For man to be good, there must be internal restraints. Our founders understood this. John Adams, our second President, said:

Our constitution was given for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.

There is no law in the world able to make a person to do what is right or able to control those who do not wish to be controlled. We cannot make a law to force a man to behave.

He went on to talk about the importance of morality and religion. You have to have those internal restraints. In Matthew Chapter 5, Jesus said if someone has hate in his heart, he is as guilty as if he had killed the person. If you control the hate which is internal, you control the action. This can only be done through the internal restraints of morality and religion.

The left wants to blame anything but the person. God tells us that it is the person who is the problem. We need to be convicted of our sin and fall on our faces (figuratively) before a holy God, and seek His mercy. As a true Christian, as a child of God, you have the Holy Spirit as that internal restraint to help you overcome the lust of the flesh, the old man, the sin nature that cause us to do evil things.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

We don’t get something new when we are saved, we become something new.

Liberals believe that we need to get rid of guns because they make people evil. Christians believe that we need guns to protect ourselves because men are evil without the internal restraints of morality and religion.

According to Romans 13, when Paul deals with the authority of civil authority, he says that the first role of government is to execute justice against those who do evil. This means that when the government, itself, becomes the evil doer, we have a major problem. When the government flips everything upside down and calls evil good, and good evil, it results in the state of lawlessness we see today.

We know that before there were guns, man was killing man. Before there were bows and arrows, man still killed man. Before there were bombs, man was killing man.

England has banned all the guns from the people and they still have murder, they still have the problems if the hearts. Right now in England there is a campaign to ban knives. The slogan is “Ban knives, save lives.” In China there was a mass killing of some 30 people and more than 100 injured and the people don’t have guns. Guns are not the problem, it is the heart of man.

The Vetting Of The Refugees

Our security people are telling us that it is impossible to properly vet the refugees coming into America because there is no data to use in the process. It is usually an 18 to 24 month process. The government is trying to tell us that we don’t have to worry because they will be going through so many stringent tests.

We now know, according to the Washington Post, that the plan is by September to bring in at least 10,000 Syrian refugees. In Jordan they are interviewing 600 people who claim to be Syrian refugees every day. Based upon how many they are approving, it will add up to more than 10,000. To accomplish their goals, the process has dropped down to 3 months.

We have people in the intelligence community who wrote a letter to Congress saying they have no confidence that this administration can adequately vet or screen these refugees. The shooter in Orlando was born in America, his father was a refugee and even had written anti-American things on the internet. There are the examples of the refugees causing problems in Europe and here in the US.

It is extremely dangerous that they are fast tracking people they can’t vet and bringing them into our communities. They are actually forcing communities to accept them. It costs about $20,000 to place every refugee. This is just the cost of placing them, it does not include the ongoing costs of housing, food, health care, schooling, etc.

There are other impacts on the communities. You now have Muslims from 3rd world countries dumped into our communities who don’t know how to conduct themselves in our society, and have no desire to learn how to do so.

Just being informed is not enough, we need to stand up an take action against what is wrong. If we do nothing we become complicit in the wrong doing. We cannot be silent on these issues. We need to get our friends informed and actively doing something also.

Share this website and our broadcasts with others. Let them see what is happening. Share this information on social media. The more people get the facts, the better chance of something being done to fix things.

Another thing you need to do is check out what we say for yourselves. Don’t just take our word for it.

We also want to thank those of you who support our ministry here at Fortress of Faith. We could not do what we do without your help.

Radio time is expensive, as are the other needs of any ministry. We are trying to raise $75,000 this summer to keep things going. If you can help us with a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. You can give on our website, http://fortressoffaith.org, or by calling us at 1-800-616-0082.

We have what we call Project 365. This is 360 people who will give $200 per year to support this ministry. You can break it down into 2 payments of $100 each, or 4 payments of $50 each. If you can’t do this, anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.
