So, if I told you that there was a group of Christians that believe that the movie house was a place of sin, what would you think? What if further, they thought they all should be shut down? You would say that they were nuts and that you are not surprised, because most Christians are, right?
Well, the problem is that I agree, those people are a little disturbing, but they are Christian. I believe that though our Fundamentalist brothers and sisters are very strict, they are followers of Christ. And we will be together in heaven, even if they question that I will make it.
So, who are these people that are claiming that the Islamists are not Muslim? What basis do they have to say such a thing? The latest is the British Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister has said the “Islamist” attack on Parliament was not “Islamic” and Islam is a “great faith”.
Taking on the role of a theologian, Theresa May insisted: “It is wrong to describe this as Islamic terrorism. It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith.”
Speaking in Parliament, she also said the attack showed “the importance of all of our faiths working together, and recognising the values that we share”.
Adding: “This act of terror was not an act of faith. It was a perversion; a warped ideology, which leads to an act of terrorism like that and it will not prevail.”
Now, this is neither accurate or helpful. The reason is that the claim sounds hollow. It is like an atheist telling the world that those Fundamentalists are not Christian. My answer as a Christian is simply: What do you know of it? Mind your own business.
And the thought that the Western Liberal gets to decide what is and what is not a faithful interpretation of the Quran is absolutely foolish. For this to be reasonable, it would have to be the echo of the Islamic community, but it is not.
This friends is and has been the face of Islam since it was founded.
Watch this video to see why I say this.
