Observation of the day:
I know many are voicing concerns about the growing threat of ISIS and the Islamic Jihadist movement here and abroad (And rightly so). Europe, America, and Western nations have for years rejected their Christian roots in favor of Progressivism, Marxism, Communism, Humanism, and Socialism. Progressivism, as it name implies, is in a state of evolution. It progresses from one state to another.
Progressivism has moved Western Civilization from one God and code, Christianity and the Bible to another god and code, Allah and the Koran. Those who believe in an evolutionary faith are finding to their horror, their worldview has no fixed standard and is always in a state of flux. Little did they also know their worldview would prepare the way for a beast (Islam) that takes advantage of their naivety to conquer them.
Islam demands that all faiths, worldviews, and philosophies either convert, become their slave, (Dhimmi) or die. They are growing and the threat is very real. Sharia law is being implemented in what was once the free nations on earth. What will Western civilization do? Will they submit as Islam demands. In fact, that is what the word Islam means or will they return to the true and living God of the Bible?
Would it not be interesting, if the Lord uses Islam to expose the fallacies of all the isms that deny Him and demonstrate once again that only those nations whose God is Lord will be blessed (Psalm 33:12).
Psalm 81:13, 14 admonishes, “Oh, that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, And turn My hand against their adversaries.”
As Western civilization recognizes the gods of humanism are fraudulent and paved the way for the Islamic beast to dominate, perhaps this double incentive will cause us to humbly return to the Lord our God, obey His commands, and watch the Lord subdue our enemies intent on our destruction. Just a thought!!!
