As reported by Breitbart — In an attempt to defend Islam from its harsh critics in regards the atrocities taking place world-wide, President Obama made a shocking comparison between Christianity and ISIS in which he reminded the people how religious extremism isn’t exclusive to Islam.
At the National Prayer breakfast, President Obama stated…
“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,”
“In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
He also stated that although there are many positive aspects of religion, there will always be people willing to “Highjack” a religion to justify their own evil deeds whatever it may be.
Needless to say that President Obama’s remarks did not sit well with Christians all over this great nation (including myself).
Today on Fox & Friends, Bishop E.W. Jackson had something to say about President Obama’s remarks…
Check it out:
It is one thing for the President to defend Islam, but it is an entirely different matter when the President attempts to defend Islam by shaming the “High Horse” of the Christian faith.
Many have deemed this nothing short of an ill-mannered attack on Christianity by the POTUS (President of the United States).
No Christian denies that horrible deeds have been committed in the name of Christ, that is not the question.
The question (believe it or not) is whether those horrible deeds were rightfully committed in the name of Christ.
And as History has proven, the answer to that question is No.
In the case of the Spanish inquisition, this was done as retaliation against the large slaughter of Christians in the Muslim world — It was not done because “The Bible says so”.
In fact, Jesus gave his disciples the following command in regards to dealing with their enemies…
(Matthew 5:44 KJV) “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
(Matthew 5:45 KJV) “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Therefore although the Spanish Inquisition was done by those who professed to be Christians, they clearly defied the teachings of Christ in their actions therefore they were NOT rightfully doing it in his name.
Likewise with Slavery and Jim Crow laws within America in earlier years.
However this is not so with Islam.
The people we see committing these hideous acts in the name of Islam, are in direct obedience to the Qur’an — therefore no matter what President Obama or anyone else claims — ISIS is the TRUE face of Islam.
Yet Islamic sympathizers (like President Obama) will get on national television and insist that ISIS and other affiliated extremist groups DO NOT speak for Islam.
They claim that ISIS has “Highjacked” the religion and twisted its teachings in order to justify its barbaric and brutal actions.
But when we turn to the Qur’an, we find quotes and passages such as the following…
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”
So readers I ask you, According to these passages, who is speaking honestly of Islam — President Obama or ISIS?
