We live in a time when everything this nation was founded upon is under attack. This is not a time for us to be silent; we must have the courage to speak the truth. If we want to defend our nation from the attacks on our founding principles, we must be informed. We must do more than just get upset, we must act. Happiness comes when we do what is right.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. (John 13:17)
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: (James 1:23)
What can we do?
1. Be an Advocate
As an advocate we publicly support the causes we are fighting for. We are not afraid to fly our colors and show those around us our position on the issues. It is a choice we must make.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15)
2. Be an activist
An activist acts on the behalf of their cause. An activist resists their opponents. Most importantly, an activist acts.
Countering Muslims when they Play the RACIST Card.
Islam is a religious ideology, not a race
Although Islam originated in Arabia and was started by an Arab, only 15% of Muslims in the world are Arabs. Islam is not a race simply because it is practiced by the clergy in Arabic.
The three largest Islamic Nations are in Asia. They are Indonesia, Pakistan, and India. Only those who lack understanding and knowledge call Islam a race.
The clergy tells the people that Islam can only be properly understood in Arabic. They do so to maintain their superiority over the adherents of Islam. Since most Muslims do not understand Arabic, the clergy is able to control them because they are the only source of Islamic understanding. Actually, most Muslims can’t read or write at all. Their ignorance is used to control them.
Playing the racist card is resorting to low, dirty, desperate tactics
When Muslims or Muslim sympathizers accuse those who oppose Islam and expose it for what it really is, they are doing so because their arguments are weak. They do so in the hope of shutting down the opposition. You can be sure that those who resort to name-calling, using labels like racist, and shaming others, are doing so because they cannot answer the arguments of their opponents.
The Bible warns about those who try to make good evil and evil good.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
The goal of politically correct speech is to control the conversation. This is done by defining the topics that are permitted and the language that can be used. By innuendo, political correctness defines all who do not follow their rules bigots and so forth.
God only made one race, the human race
And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; (Acts 17:26)
All nations are of the same blood. He has set the boundaries of nations, not races.
Being a nationalist is not racist
After the flood, God divided the world into nations.
By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. (Genesis 10:5)
You will notice that He did not divide them by race. He divided them by language (tongue) and by families. The word “race” is only used in the Bible when talking about a footrace.
When you divide a kingdom, a city, or a house, you set it up for a fall.
And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: (Matthew 12:25)
Many, especially those on the left, are trying to divide our nation by race, class, religion, etc. Their purpose is to bring our nation down so they can create a new nation according to their socialist ideas.
Those who are for open borders are in opposition to the principles of God. We saw earlier that God sets up the boundaries of nations. Nations build cultures, some good and some bad. There are national values, again, some are good and some are bad. God set borders to protect these cultures.
God promised to make a great nation from Abraham’s descendants.
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3)
If you wonder why the world is in such a sad state today, you only have to look at the United Nations. The vast majority of the nations of the world hate Israel. America is Israel’s greatest friend. The result of this situation is the nations that hate Israel are in economic decline, while the US., in spite of all our sin, has a growing economy.
White Privilege and the Sin of Slavery
If you listen to the left today, you would believe that slavery was invented, and advanced by, white Christians. This attitude comes from those who have not studied history. The liberal left has taken over our education system and our media. It is playing the part of a puppet master. Slavery existed long before there were white Europeans or white Americans. The slavery in the west was started by black Muslims taking black Africans as slaves and selling them to the white slave traders.
Blaming any religion for slavery shows a lack of knowledge of religious history. Moses is considered the lawgiver of Judaism, and he had no slaves. Christ is the founder of Christianity, and He had no slaves. Muhammad was the founder of Islam, and he had over 6,000 slaves. He also called blacks “raisin heads.”
When Islam and its supporters play the race card, we need to know the facts. We need to understand that this tactic is used because they have no answers that will stand up to the arguments of their opponents.
Don’t forget, we have 1,400 years of history that exposes the true face of Islam. Islam has always spread by the sword. It has been one of the biggest proponents of slavery. Historically, it has always looked down on blacks, especially those who did not convert to Islam.
One of the major purposes of Fortress of Faith is to educate people concerning the true nature of Islam. Our broadcasts are available on our website, http://fortressoffaith.com for you to listen to. This newsletter will help keep you informed on what is happening in the world concerning this, and other issues. It is up to you to take action in the community where you live.
