Karen and Homer, my parents, and sister gave pictures, hats, and other memorabilia of the Twin Towers to me not long after 9/11.
I look at them every day because I want to be reminded Satan uses Islam to desolate and destroy.
Anyone who knows anything about the Islam of Muhammad and the Koran knows it is polemical by profession and practice; while those who suggest otherwise think elephants are mice with glandular problems.
Well, there go some subscribers; especially the ones who like to pretend Islam is irenic and Muslim terrorists are aberrations of Islam.
While they'll miss out on the opportunity to help fund these KDs which will always be free anyway - look below in the 8th section for an offer which most will ignore or refuse as a way to send a serious hint akin to sales of my last book - people who really buy into the intellectual revisionism of that repulsive religion are about as gullible as Pennsylvanians who think HRC is one of 'em because she knocked down a beer with a chaser at the urging of the boys at the bar and shot a rifle behind pap's outhouse in Scranton.
If this keeps up, we'll end up with angry white women, grumpy old white guys, and a cast of unknowns who become more unappealing as they're more known as the, uh, primary constituencies of Election 2008's Presidential candidates.
Jesus can't be blamed for Christians who act so antithetically to Him as attested in Holy Scripture.
Jesus invited, welcomed, included, and loved everybody to death so everybody could exist confidently in the assurance of living forever.
That's why I like Him being God.
Muhammad can be blamed for Muslims - especially the cowardly terrorists who pick on civilian targets and those emotionally fragile ones who totally freak out over a few cartoons and start jumping up and down like Pentecostals on crack while roaming around like malnourished and mentally challenged vultures with blood, guts, and veins in their teeth - who are just following his example and pseudo-sacred literature.
Muhammad was a bloodthirsty warrior who embraced and encouraged brutalities to persuade and proselytize or exterminate.
That's why I'm so glad he's only a god or prophet for a god or whatever to the truly Godless.
Only the intellectually dishonest, historically illiterate, spiritually impaired, and politically tuned but practically foolish Pollyannas floating through life like a Tiny Tim overdosed on St. John's Wort do not connect the dots of Islamic terrorism to Muhammad.
Too bad our government, media, and mainline churches are filled with 'em.
A local mega which I have defended against the jealous criticisms of clergy living in its shadows has been making the news for being in dialogue with Muslims to identify "our" common ground.
That's like suggesting the Bears can wear green and yellow in 2008.
I don't think so.
Islam is as removed from the truth of Jesus and Christianity as defined in Holy Scripture as Paris Hilton's sexuality from Mother Teresa's.
It's like thesis #4 in Fifteen Secrets for Life and Ministry which nobody buys or reads because guys like JO know folks prefer salve to salt: "Trying to be rational with the irrational is illogical."
I used to think Muhammad just suffered from sunstroke.
That's not it at all.
He needed more Son.
O.K., I'd like you to go to your favorite Bible with our local mega and read 1 John 4.
Here's the deal (go back to the second paragraph of the third section).
I don't charge anybody for KDs or the Metanoeite series; and I'm not going to start charging anybody for two reasons: (1) I've seen the sales for my last book and can take a hint; and (2) Despite what JO, PR, JM, BH, and too many others think who are living a lot more luxuriously than Jesus ever did off of what God gave them to give away, I can't charge for inspirations or indigestions - You decide! - because inspirations are from God and not for sale and indigestions are about as trustworthy as John Daly's last sobriety pledge.
Regardless, I'd like to pay off my Dodge Caliber before the parousia; and I've got about 12Gs of principle to go and I'm really getting stressed out.
I know what you're thinking.
"What if I send 12Gs and somebody else sends 12Gs and..."
First, if that happens, I'll give it away to someone for something which will honor Jesus.
Second, uh, this could be as depressing for me as the sales for my last book.
I almost forgot.
If you pay it off all by yourself, I'll stop using @#$%s to separate sections; so I look forward to hearing from my friends in California, Florida, Kansas City, and New Jersey who don't like the @#$%s.
See, I can take a hint.
Send your gifts to my boss Karen at FPC, 221 N. Main St., Belvidere, Illinois 61008.
I'm serious about section 7; but, promise, I won't talk about it again unless, of course, I'm on the 4th floor of our most ethnic local hospital.
Have you noticed how few Muslims speak out against what those really nasty Muslims do to people in the name of allah?
Have you ever talked to a member of America's Special Forces who has witnessed the barbarity of Muslims ministering to the unconverted?
Can you imagine Jesus leading the charge of a bloody crusade, throwing people into ovens, turning on the switch to fry somebody, tying dynamite to children and sending them into supermarkets to blow up non-combatants to make an ideological point, chopping off the heads of infidels on commercial television to appease His Father, or stripping old nuns and crucifying them to communion tables after mutilating them and making Hannibal Lechter look like Pee Wee Herman?
But you can imagine Muslims doing dirty dark deeds like that because they're just following their leader Muhammad.
And now my mom is going to write or call me seconds after reading this because she'll be afraid some Muslim wacko - so many suspects - so filled with the love of his prophet and god will show up at the first tee of Timber Pointe Golf Club to knock me off for telling the truth about 'em and prove to our government, media, and mainliners how irenic they really are.
Yeah, great religion.
Muslims really make me want to sing at Disney World, "It's a small world after all..."
How the hell did it ever come to this?
Go back to section 6 - Is that one of those KD symbols which not many appreciate? - for the first clue.
Chuck Colson wrote not too long ago, "We replaced truth with therapy."
Francis Schaeffer wrote from his deathbed, "Here is the great evangelical disaster - the failure of the evangelical world to stand for truth as truth. There is only one word for this - namely accommodation: the evangelical church has accommodated to the world spirit of the age."
J. K. Van Baalen wrote back in the 30s, "Cults...[e.g., Islam]...are the unpaid bills of the church."
Paul, who was very tight with the Lord, wrote even longer ago, "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie."
Who is the father of lies?
He uses lies to desolate and destroy.
And now, friends, you know how the hell it has come to this.
George Orwell was right: "In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act."
I'll stop now...to look at those reminders of 9/11.
Blessings and Love!
