~Regarding the Mass Murder In Orlando~
A part points to the events in Orlando, where a Muslim went into a Gay nightclub and engaged in mass murder.
The interesting thing is that I have yet to hear a single person give the correct reason for why he did it.
So, let me ask the right question:
Why did Omar Mateen shoot up that nightclub?
Because he had to.
Until the world understands Islam, they will never understand why Muslims engage in violence for the cause of Islam. In fact, it took me a while to figure it out, several years after I had arrived in Israel. After having spent a decade and a half in the Middle East, I think that I now understand it better than most. It doesn’t mean that I’m smart or have better eyesight. It just means that I can provide you with eye-witness accounts of the truth.
I was there.
If I lie to you, I will be judged by God for it.
That should be enough for you to trust my attempt at honesty. What should also help, is that I take nothing that happens in the Middle East at face value. I always consider the events and environments that have led to the events and environments that we see now.
The light dawned on me one day, after a terrorist attack in Israel. A young suicide bomber had blown himself up, murdering lots of Israeli civilians… and, HIS MOTHER WAS CELEBRATING!
I was completely astounded.
How could a mother celebrate the death of her son?
Then, someone explained it to me.
First: Islam provides only a works-based salvation
Under Islam, you will not go to heaven unless your good works outweigh your bad. And, that means from the moment you were born, until now. And, that includes your works from BEFORE you became a Muslim.
If you have too many ‘bad deeds’, you are in serious trouble when you die, according to Islam.
Second: The only Islamic way out of that mess
But, Islam provides an interesting way out of this dilemma. If your bad deeds outweigh your good ones, then the only thing that you can do to make it to heaven, is to die in ‘defense of Islam’. If you die fighting for Islam, then all of you bad deeds are wiped clean and you get to go to heaven, no questions asked.
Third: You bring your family and friends with you
Then, there’s the reason why that mother was celebrating the death of her son. Under Islam, if you die fighting for Islam, you get to choose 72 people to go with you to heaven, no matter what THEY might have done. No questions asked. Straight to heaven.
THAT is why the mother was celebrating. She was going to heaven.
That’s certainly worth celebrating, right?
Fourth: If you can’t quit sinning…
The deepest reason of all, I believe, also lies in the inability of Islam to change the hearts of Muslims. This Omar Mateen was gay and drank alcohol. He was trying to get away from it, but couldn’t. So, the only thing that he could do to get away from these demons that plagued his life was to die in defense of Islam.
It was the only way out for him.
This is one of the reasons why so many drug addicts, homosexuals, thieves, etc. often become suicide bombers. It’s the only way to clean the slate for them. Do a statistical analysis of all the suicide bombers out there. You’ll see what I mean.
This is not to say that all suicide bombers have a criminal past. But, it provides an explanation of events that no one is talking about, or wants to talk about.
Those of you who have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior… YOU understand that God can… and WILL …change your heart and free you from sin. I am so sorry that these suicide terrorists don’t realize that and turn to death as the answer.
An Example For Why We Need To Look Deeply
Furthermore, it’s an example of the need to look more deeply into the reasons for why things are happening. Too many people are looking at the surface and drawing their conclusions there.
That’s how the media is deceiving so many people. They only show you the surface, and never show you why things are happening the way that they are happening.
It’s not enough to see WHAT is happening.
~More food for thought…
The left gets mad at Christians who don’t support gay marriage.
But don’t get mad at Muslims who kill off a bunch of gays in a nightclub.
Why is this?
~You need to ask WHY.
