A young man went into a mosque in Quebec, the most secular province in the broadly antiChristian nation of Canada…
(Just like in Western Europe, this is with the passive or active support of most of the population.)
…and went on a murderous rampage, killing six before being arrested.
Most odd, as I would not have expected it at all. It’s very rare that a mosque is attacked by anyone other than another Muslim group: but the facts are the facts.
True: this is Quebec we are talking about: they do have a thing for massacres.
Even so, I for one expect Christians to actually obey the Commandments of God. You don’t win by going down to the enemy’s level, in some tit-for-tat orgy of death. You win by obedience to God and His Commandments!
And what, exactly, are these commandments?
Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the Lord your God. — Leviticus 24:22.
Muslims may choose to devalue the lives of the infidel: you may not.
Your God expects more, and better, from you!
And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. — Leviticus 19:33-34
You will love that outsider, that pagan, as yourself… because God commands it!
And what is love? Some nice, mushy emotion that changes with what you feel that day?
No: to love someone is to treat him in a manner that is in accordance to the Biblical Commandments.
Not that “tenderness leads to the gas chambers” kind of love.
Not that “we love you, and that means you will do what we say” kind of love.
Not that “we love you today… but tomorrow, who knows?” kind of love.
Actual love means treating people in accordance to the commandments of God.
That means that you respect their lives and their property and their liberty.
“But these Muslims hate us all!”
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. — Romans 12:20
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
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;
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.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. — Mathew 1:42-48
Of course, you should protect your lives and your property if threatened: but if they are not threatened, you have no right to attack someone else’s life or property.
Christ demands victory and perfection… on His terms, in His way.
Give the Rightful King what He wants, instead of giving Satan, that lying serpent, what he wants… more murder, more lies, more fear, more failure, and more souls in hell.
Uphold the Law: regardless if others obey God or not.
Gain the Victory: in terms that God approves of.
Remember to nurture the Holy Spirit in your life, so you can bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. — Galatians 5:22-23
Fear God, rather than men.
