Burning the Quran? Truth vs Islam

by: Josh Helm | September 9, 2010

Although I don't necessarily stand behind anyones actions of burning the Quran, I think it should speak volumes to us about the differences between Islam and what it means to follow Christ and be a "Christian". The fact is people burn the Holy Bible everyday. They actually have a day called blasphemy day! Just the idea of this burning has cause such violent threats. What does that speak of the Quran? That those that highly esteem that book would cause terrorism, destruction, violent acts, even war possibly. It may not be speaking volumes to you but there are those in the world that will feel the effects of this muslim doctrine. Barak Obama said this morning "Look, this is a recruitment bonanza for al-Qaida," the president said. "You could have serious violence in places like Pakistan and Afghanistan." He also implored a Florida minister to call off his Quran-burning "stunt," saying it would jeopardize U.S. troops abroad. His comments came as the administration discussed whether to reach out to the pastor in a bid to get him to drop the idea. Why don't we recognize the implications of this and see that it is Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34. Tolerating deception is not what made this country great, it was a pursuit of that which is Holy that America was founded upon. This whole thing event whatever you want to call it should show provoke the TRUTH to come out...

On a rather important note: I received an email this morning from a Pastor in Pakistan asking for prayer because this Quran burning event is reaching international attention which means turning up the heat for the persecution of Christians in predominant Islamic countries as well as Pakistan. They are already sensing a very hostile atmosphere. They expect beatings, and the burning of Christian churches. In those countries it actually cost you something to be a "Christian" keep the Christians in those areas in prayer... Believing for a supernatural strength and grace to be upon those.
