It is the month of March already, and it is time for our spring fundraiser. It couldn’t come at a more needful time. Our goal is usually around $20,000. If we can reach that goal it would certainly be a great help, but we really need to increase it. Let’s start at the $20,000 mark and if we can go over that, praise God.
Last year we saw a drop in our support of about $40,000. This is a big hit for a small ministry like ours. We had to drop our 1 hour program on Saturday because of this. We are looking for a half hour slot with AFR when it opens up. We really need to hear from you, our accounts are very low. It has not been like this for many years. We have had to cut many things to trim our budget.
Thank God for our Canadian listeners. Many of you give sacrificially. Part of the problem is the exchange rate between the US and Canadian dollar has dropped, it is about 25% less than it used to be a few years ago. If you could help us with a donation this month it would be a tremendous help.
I don’t know of anyone on the radio who deals with Islam the way Fortress of Faith does. This is why I think it is vital that we continue broadcasting and grow into other radio markets.
We are also looking to really making an impact on the Internet. We want to get into making short educational videos that will alert and educate the world to the truth about the horrors of Islam. We need to expose Muhammad for being the false prophet that he was. Muslims have been caught up in false teaching, and we want to cause them to ask questions that usually aren’t allowed by Islam. Our goal is to get them into the Bible, which they are not permitted to read. Islam teaches that the Bible came from God, but they don’t read it.
One of the major goals of Fortress of Faith has always been to see Muslims get saved. They need to be brought to the true faith, which is not Islam, but is the faith in Jesus Christ as our Saviour, not just as a prophet.
We will be moving some of our resources into getting this out on the Internet. I believe it will also be a blessing to you. This is taking some time because we have a lot of things on our plate, and there are so few of us to go around.
We are also trying to rewrite our course, “Engaging Muslims With The Gospel.” We want to make this into a home study course. I am also working on some booklets, Islam The Antichrist Religion, The Arab Israel Conflict (or the Ishmael Isaac Family Feud), Chrislam, and other subject about which North America needs to be informed.
There is a lot of work we are trying to get done, but there are few of us and our budget is very tight. Your help would be greatly appreciated, not just to keep us on the radio, but to help us in this other work.
We are also engaging Muslims with the Gospel. We have a missionary that is working with us. He is out trying to raise his support at this time. He will be going to New York City. There are more than 500,000 Muslims living in New York City and there are about 20,000 Afghans.
We are not only warning people about Islam, we are trying to bring Muslims to Christ. It is our desire to see this part of our ministry grow.
You can give safely and securely on line by clicking on the Donations button above. You can also call 1-800-616-0082 to make a donation over the phone, or we can give you our address if you want to donate by check. We have addresses in both the US and Canada.
If you are in the Vancouver area in British Columbia, I am going to be doing an Answering Islam seminar at Grace Baptist Church in Langley, BC on April 1st. It is a Saturday, and it is April Fool’s Day. I hope you can come. We will start around 1:00 pm and run to around 5:00 pm. We will be covering many issues concerning Islam and the evangelizing of Muslims.
Let me switch themes and talk about the M-103 bill up in Canada. There is a petition opposing this bill and I highly encourage you to sign this petition. You can find it online at Freedom to Offend. The organization behind this is Ezra Levant’s news group, The Rebel. Some may not like the title The Rebel thinking they are troublemakers. They are not, they are simply standing for freedom of speech. The government is treating them like they are the rebels, so they have simply taken the negative pejorative and claimed it as a badge. Remember, this is how Christians got the name Christian.
All the information you need about this Islamophobia bill is on this website. M-103 it attempting to make it a crime to speak against Islam and we must stand against this.
Now let’s jump over the the Middle East. I saw something on the Internet that I wish I had thought of. “If Islam is the religion of peace, then why is there no peace in the Middle East?” This is a great question, and we need to start asking it to those who keep trying to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. Here are some facts:
- Not everyone who lives in the Middle East is an Arab or a Muslim, but of the Arabs who live there, there are 300,000,000 Muslims.
- They suggest that the reason there is not peace in the Middle East is the Jews. There are 6,200,000 Jews in Israel, and they are not allowed in any other country. Why does Israel allow Muslims and people of other faiths, and the Islamic countries don’t?
- Seventeen percent of Israel is Muslim. Israel is the tolerant nation in the Middle East. The Jews will tolerate other religions, including Islam, but the Muslims will not tolerate Judaism or Christianity.
- The narrow minded, bigoted groups are the Muslim groups.
They want us to believe that the small percentage of Jews in the Middle East are the cause of all the problems. The Arabs are trying to steal land that rightfully belongs to the Jews, and the Jews are trying to hold on to their land. This is why there is no peace in the Middle East.
If the Jews were to lay down their arms, tomorrow there would be no Israel. If the Muslims were to lay down their arms, there would be peace in the Middle East.
Think on these things. It will help you understand what is going on in the world today.
