Reply To Sojourners - Rev. Jim Wallis & Rev. Jennifer Kottler - The WTC Mosque
Sitting in for a vacationing Jim Wallis, the Rev. Jennifer Kottler wrote an editorial entitled For They Shall Be Called Children Of God -- and it attempts to make the case as to why Christians should not oppose the Ground Zero Mosque, and why Christians should encourage Muslims to build wherever they can. In the editorial Rev. Kottler embraces the traditional politically correct position and states: "As someone who has Muslim friends with a devout faith, I want people to understand that it is not the religion, but a perversion of that religion that fueled terrorists on 9/11."
In response to the Rev. Kottler I must pose the question: Is it politically correct to lie to the readers? To state that Islamic violence is a perversion of Islam, then it must be demonstrated that the core Muslim teachings condemns and rejects all violence. In another words, for this violence to be a perversion, the case must be made that the Muslims who are portrayed as extremists are carrying out their terrorism on the basis of a dogmatic and man-made doctrine which they follow either instead of the Qur'an, or in addition to the Qur'an. If it can be demonstrated that those who are portrayed as Muslim extremists are merely carrying out what Muslims believe is the Word of God, then it must be recognized that the Muslims who the Rev. Kottler is referring to, are very much counterfeit and non-practicing with respect to the core teachings of Islam. And if this is the case, then Rev. Kottler should begin her above statement that she has friends who are apostate Muslims who reject many of the core teachings of Islam.
If we pose the question: What does the Qur'an say? We can instantly demonstrate that the Rev. Kottler's whole position is in the very least a deception, and more rightfully a bold faced lie. Some examples taken directly from the Qur'an with respect to those outside the Muslim religion: "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).
How can a person claim to be a faithful believer, if they fail to embrace and follow the core tenets of the religion which they believe represents the Commandments of God? Those who the Rev. Kottler portrays as peaceful Muslims of faith, are those who the true practicing Muslims draw upon for both support, and to convert, which is accomplished when the peaceful Muslim is confronted with the requirements set forth directly in the Qur'an -- which Muslims believe is the Words and Commandments to man spoken directly from God to Mohamed. In the same way that a child within the family environment is slowly matured into adulthood, the body of faith-based Muslims that the Rev. Kottler portrays as non-extremist, is very much the Islamic family environment that is slowly matured into full practicing Muslims -- and full practicing Muslims must embrace and carry out the above words spoken directly to them by God. So, to maintain that 9/11 is "...a perversion of that religion that fueled terrorists", must be seen as a deceptive bold faced lie on the part of the Rev. Kottler. In fact, from the perspective of the Qur'an, 9/11 must be seen as the true practice of the core principles of the Muslim religion. What does the Qur'an state regarding those who are not Muslim? If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will he be accepted of God; and in the next life, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost themselves and will burn in hell. (Qur'an 3:85).
Christian Idolatry: The Muslim charge of idolatry is made especially against Christians, because they worship their brother Jesus as God. And not only is this fact is verified by any sincere seeker of TheWay -- and can therefore be verified by any genuine Christian who seeks Truth over Church dogma -- but is representative of the very reason that the religion of Islam was brought into existence (see The Necessity Of Islam). And while it is true that the foundings of Islam was Divinely Inspired, it is also true that as Christianity fell victim to the same spiritual disease that undermined Judaism, Islam fell victim to this same disease that made the Church the Synagogue of Satan (see Church of the AntiChrist). But to those who understand the struggle of the Truth Church which is Spiritual, the spiritual death of all three religions comes as no surprise.
While the Christians are by far the more peaceful people, the facts of the matter is that the Muslims are not wrong with respect to the allegation of idolatry against the Church. But in comparison, while the idolatry of Christians robs them of the Spiritual Life in the Kingdom they hope for, the sin of the Muslim world is representative of the ultimate heresy and sin against God. With respect to the idolatry of the Christians: Now that the truth has been presented to them, they no longer have an excuse for their idolatry. In The Ten Words it is proven that the original Ebionite Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus was correct -- and this fact is verified by the witness of six (6) independent pre-Nicene authorities who all attest to the fact that in the Original Gospel, Jesus became the Messiah at his baptism in the Jordan. Further, it is factually demonstrated that both the Gospels and the Epistles all support the original teachings that Jesus became the Messiah/Christ by fulfilling the Law within himself. And while in many respects the religion of Islam is better representative of the original Gospel teachings of TheWay, because they have been reduced to a death-cult by political forces in their past, their present sin is far greater than that of the Christians. In the same way that it was political forces that destroyed Christianity, it was also political forces that destroyed Islam -- but then Jesus warned that even the very elect would be seduced by the god of this world.
In the same way that the proverbial Phoenix is reborn out of the ashes of destruction, so too in our own time has Truth been resurrected from the dead corpse of secularized institutionalized religion. Thus, counterfeit religious authorities such as Jim Wallis and Jennifer Kottler no longer have an excuse for preaching their man-made doctrines that totally alienate the congregation of believers who follow them. And the fact that the whole substance of their man-made doctrines of belief is easily proven to be a bogus fraud, is demonstrated conclusively at http://TheLie.org. And if anyone is willing to take The Ten Minute Test, they can easily prove to themselves the great spiritual truths that the real Jesus is conveying in what I have written. And the fact that Jesus has now revealed to Jim Wallis and Jennifer Kottler the Truth from On High in a written form directly in response to their doctrines of apostasy, means that they no longer have a cloak for their sin if they continue in their lawless and evil ways.
Muslim Apostasy: The allegation of the Muslim world against Christians is seen in the fact that the post-Nicene Church greatly corrupted the scriptures in order to make them support Roman Pagan doctrines of belief that became grafted into the New Testament. And while this is easily proven to be true (see http://BibleCorruption.com , it is also true that the Muslim corruption of the Qur'an is even worse than the corruption of the Christians (see The Fall Of Islam). And that both Christians and Muslims will be held accountable for their failure to repent from these corruptions -- the fact that the corruptions of the Qur'an support the death and destruction of innocent men, women and children which is carried out in the name of God, is representative of an abomination of the worst degree. And if we ask What Would Jesus Do? In the same way that Jesus portrayed the counterfeit religious leaders among the Jews as hypocrites, vipers, blind guides and the offspring of the Devil (see Devil), any religious leaders today who fail to openly condemn the many satanic verses in the Qur'an, are themselves apostates to God who is portrayed as commanding believers to perform evil deeds in the world.
The Solution: The Solution is not for religious leaders to promote a lie in the form of political correctness -- and therefore become the embodiment of evil, by virtue of their complacency to evil -- but to do as Jesus did, and speak the Truth by becoming a vessel that manifests the Truth and TheWay. With respect to the teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, Rev. Kottler writes: Peace is not just the absence of conflict. Jesus was talking about the Hebrew understanding of peace as "shalom," which means health and wholeness and reconciliation in our hearts and in our communities. But what is the meaning of Wholeness? To accomplish this, Jewish leaders will have to seek to become the Final Temple -- Christians will have to use the Key of Knowledge to enter the Kingdom (see Inauguration Of New Covenant ) -- and Muslims will have to demonstrate their validity, by teaching their brothers and sisters how to make the required journey to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca (see Distant Mosque). And in the same way that these original objectives of Judaism, Christianity and Islam will be opposed by the counterfeit religious leaders of each of the three respective religions, the true shepherds of TheWay must stand firm in the true faith which is purely Spiritual. Thus, because of the great collision of not only the three major western religions, but also the conflict of philosophical ideologies on a world-wide basis, it is again relevant to declare that These Are The Times That Try Men's Souls!!! And those who remain complacent to evil -- attempting to ignore the reality that The Times They Are A Changing, will find themselves drowning in the great sea of despair that has begun to envelop our culture of Spiritual Apostasy. If, therefore, either Jim Wallis or Jennifer Kottler represented the Truth and TheWay -- and were not the very hands holding the spikes that Paul states crucifies the Christ afresh (see The Fallacy Of Salvation By Faith Alone) -- a doctrine promoted by Christian clergy which shackles the congregation of believers to the abyss of ignorance and despair.
In the same way that in the Middle Ages there was a spiritual marriage of Kabbalistic (Gnostic) Jews, Spiritual(Gnostic) Christians and Spiritual (Gnostic) Muslim Mystics who joined together to guide true spiritual seekers who rejected the secular institutionalized teachings of all three religions which portrayed themselves as Orthodox, the time is again at hand for genuine spiritual shepherds to again arise and reveal to mankind the means to make the journey into the Kingdom. Anything less than this, is the sign that the spiritual complacent clergy is a minister of the AntiChrist. And thus, the true spiritual reality of the Living Word has come upon the counterfeit religious leaders from all three religions -- i.e., with the restoration of the original Truth of TheWay, "...now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22 NKJ).
