We all cringed at the news of an Islamic madman killing a journalist last week. The murder claimed to be killing in the name of Allah. Interesting how what he said compares to what God teaches in the book of Proverbs, “All who hate Me [God] love death” (8:36).
These murders, plural for there have been countless others, point out that the god of Islam offers neither grace nor mercy. Because Allah has neither, the Islamist must kill, spill blood, and plunge the knife. Their barbarity is all to prove they love their god enough. Here is where Islam falls short: Since their god has neither grace nor mercy, then the Islamist can never hope to receiver grace or mercy themselves.
Thomas Aquinas said, “The soul in grace is so seductive that it surpasses the beauty of all created things.” Today in the Middle-East, from Turkey to Morocco and beyond, there is a great amount of turmoil, and it is all because of Islam. Should the Christian be terrorized? No! Should the Christian see opportunity? Yes!
Grace and Mercy,
