The Pakistani government has turned a significant portion of the country over to the Taliban in order to “restore order …and halt the Taliban advance” (Wall Street Journal April 14, 2009, page 1).

But, according to other accounts,
We'll impose sharia across Pak: Taliban (The Times of India) cleric Sufi Muhammad-led Tehrik Nifaz-I-Shariat-I-Muhammadi (TNSM) and Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan have welcomed imposition of sharia in NWFP's Malakand division, saying the "struggle" would continue to implement Islamic law in other parts of the country.

It’s clear: a “peace treaty” with Islam is like a peace treaty with a cancerous tumor! If it’s not treated, it will continue to grow and kill! What are the implications for US Policy when Pakistan and Afghanistan are united under Taliban rule, as they most certainly will be? Domestically, we face the same problem.

Here, the “Progressives” argue “we’re so strong, we should be able to tolerate a little ‘cancer’!” The trouble is, cancer seldom stays small and benign! Even though the Progressives chant “no operations! They are too painful and expensive”, if the problem isn’t treated, the long term results are certain: life as we know it will be destroyed!

Another aspect: is it a war on terror or resisting Islamic Jihad? This lack of definition is going to be fatal. Jihad can be waged with the mouth, the sword, the pen, and the pocket book. If we restrict resistance to the onslaught of Islamic Jihad only to one of the four, Western Civilization will perish! It makes no sense to send troops to Afghanistan, yet cave in to Jihadist demands here in the United States to accommodate the Shari’a Law! Eliminating pork from school lunch menus, recognizing Muslim holy days in American public schools, Junior College prayer rooms and foot washing stations (which they don’t even have in Syria and Lebanon) are all steps down the road to imposing the Shari’a! How can we be so stupid and suicidal?

Easter 2009

He is risen! Hallelujah! In reading the letter of Jesus Christ to Sardis (Rev 3:1) , I came across this:

"I see right through your work. You have a reputation for vigor and zest, but you're dead, stone-dead!"

The meaning for us today is clear! Even though some of these massive "Community Churches" may have a large youth groups and a growing fellowship, too often they do so by making compromises with the society at large! They do so to avoid condemnation and persecution! In other words, by turning their back on the Gospel! they tend towards the feel good fast food spirituality to "help people with their lives...God wants you to buy your wife some new lingerie! Lets all hold hands and be at one with nature and sing Kumbayah"!

What else can you call the ordination of practicing homosexuals as Bishops (or even women, some would say) and remain silent on abortion anything but compromises with secular society for the sake of popularity? Or rewriting Scripture to delete the miracles and changing God the Father to "Mother Nature"?

Certainly the church in Sardis avoided persecution as do these massive Community Churches! Satan figured that things were progressing nicely enough he didn't have to bother!

I went to a funeral at one of these churches one time. And over the lectern was the sun disk of the Egyptian god Ra, complete with the emanating winged rays that encompassed the entire worship space! No Gospel here!

I can't help but think that the Islamics who strive to burn down Western Civilization a warning to change our ways. Prior to the destruction of the Temple in 586 BC, the Israelites considered themselves "bullet-proof" owing to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Joseph residing in the Holy of Holies. They ignored the prophets who warned the Israelites this wasn't true! To no avail!

Today, as Islam encroaches on our society, our society ignores the threat as did the Israelites the Assyrian threat. The secular belief assumes that since America won its war in 1945 it will remain invincible forever! This cannot be true!

One can only think that if our society is set ablaze, it will serve to burn away the dross of secularism, leaving the purified gold and silver of the Christianity that is the true foundation of our civilization.
