‘Christian Terrorists’ Don’t Exist

Florida – -(Ammoland.com)-  “I'm sick of these white male NRA Republicans and their mass shootings beca … um, Sayed Farook? Hey, let's not vilify an entire group.” – Jon Gabriel, editor-in-chief, Ricochet.com

Workplace violence strikes again. “Allahu Akbar!” evidently means, “I quit,” and pipe bombs are the new resignation letter. Southern Baptist redneck Syed Rizwan Farook and his Irish Catholic wife, Tashfeen Malik, are reported to have been inexplicably in touch with ambiguously international, not-at-all-Islam-related terrorists under investigation by the FBI prior to mowing down 35 white-privileged American citizens at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.

Investigators feverishly search for a motive.

Multiculturalism was unavailable for comment.

It's said that not all Muslims are terrorists, but that most terrorists are Muslims. Bleeding heart “religion of peace” Jihad-deniers may explain away the global scourge of Islamic terrorism as “workplace violence,” the “result of climate change” or a “gun control issue” (California has the strictest gun laws in all 50 states, and Paris France has banned guns altogether), but the facts, common sense and our own observations reveal the truth.

It's world-class stupid to insist that, when demon-possessed Muslim terrorists mow down a room full of law-abiding citizens, the “progressive” panacea is to disarm the law-abiding citizens.

“Enough is enough,” all right. Sit down, liberals. The adults are talking. We don't need more gun control, we need more Islam control.

Brigitte Gabriel is a world-renown national security expert. Her concentration is on the – ahem – explosive rise in Islamic terrorism. She notes that there are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world. Of them, intelligence agencies estimate that 15-25 percent are orthodox Muslims, meaning they actually follow the teachings of the Quran.

“That leaves 75 percent of [Muslims being] peaceful people,” observes Gabriel. “But when you look at 15-25 percent of the world's Muslim population, you're looking at 180 million to 300 million people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization. That is as big as the United States,” she concludes.

Indeed, with these harrowing numbers in mind it's no surprise that there have been nearly 27,500 terrorist attacks worldwide committed by faithful Muslims since 9/11.

There have been zero committed by faithful Christians.

Here's why.

Muslims, true Muslims, follow the teachings of their dead “prophet” Muhammad, a warring tyrant who, as even the Islamic Quran concedes, was a murderous misogynist and pedophile. Christians, true Christians, follow the very-much-alive Lord Jesus Christ, the God-man, whose teachings are found in the God-breathed Holy Bible.

Muhammad taught, and the Quran stresses, that a central tenet of Islam is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not Muslim or, depending on who's doing the killing, belongs to a different sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute category tagged “moderate Muslim” are also infidels or “idolaters.” They're bad Muslims, and, so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all. “When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them,” commands Surah 9:5. “Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” Faithful Muslims, true followers of Muhammad, “slay the idolaters wherever [they] find them” (see ISIS, Hamas, Syed Farook, et al.).

It's what Muslims do.

On the other hand, Jesus taught His followers, who are called Christians, to “do to others what you would have them do to you” (see Luke 6:31); that, “You shall not murder” (see Matthew 19:18); and that we are to “love [our] enemies and pray for those who persecute [us]” (see Matthew 5:44). It goes without saying that those who do not follow these teachings are not following Christ.

Indeed, while many may claim to be “Christian,” the word only applies to those who are justified in Christ, spiritually reborn and regenerated through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit. The true Christian walks in Christ's steps through faith and obedience.

Terrorism is in direct disobedience to Christ. It's in direct obedience to Muhammad.

Whereas “Muslim extremists,” that is, faithful Muslims, kill people extremely, “Christian extremists,” that is, faithful Christians, love people, including their enemies, extremely.

Islam is Christianity's photo-negative. While Christianity brings eternal life to those choosing to surrender to Jesus, who alone is “the Way, the Truth and the Life,” Islam brings eternal death to those who surrender to Allah, who is “the best of deceivers” (“[A]nd Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers.” [see Surah 3:54]).

Robert Lewis Dear : A booking photo released by the Colorado Springs Police Department shows Robert Lewis Dear, 57, the suspect in the shooting Friday at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
No, Robert Dear is no “Christian terrorist.” He may be a terrorist, but he's not a Christian terrorist. He can't be. He doesn't follow Christ.

Which brings us to last week's mass shooting near an abortion slaughterhouse in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Even as the secular left was gleefully screaming, “Christian terrorism!” Garrett Swasey, a pro-life, Christian pastor and police officer, was laying down his life for those inside the very Planned Parenthood he abhorred.

It's what Christians do.

(For the record, this marks the first time in history that any liberal has been concerned for human life at a Planned Parenthood.)

Still, again, and so our liberal, anti-Christian friends fully understand, Officer Garrett Swasey was a pro-life Christian. Robert Dear, the evil, reclusive, deranged pothead who killed him, is not. Dear murdered three innocent people. He is, by definition, not “pro-life.” Neither is he Christian. He is, much like Planned Parenthood, “pro-death.”

Peas in a pod.

To be sure, pro-life Christians like Officer Swasey agree: Murdering babies is wrong. And murdering the murderers who murder babies is also wrong. Shooting innocent people is evil. Just like dismembering baby girls alive and selling their body parts is evil.

No, Robert Dear is no “Christian terrorist.” He may be a terrorist, but he's not a Christian terrorist. He can't be. He doesn't follow Christ. If anything, Robert Dear's actions are more like those of Planned Parenthood, orthodox Islam and Syed Farook.

Bloody bosom buddies.

Yes, there have been terrorists who call themselves Christian.

But there has never been a Christian terrorist.

    With regard to your citation of this: (“[A]nd Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers.” [see Surah 3:54]). Your first lesson for today is this: “Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false…” 2 Thessalonians v 11 RSV Now remember that Paul was not addressing either Arabs or Muslims which of course should be obvious to you. Paul was addressing a corrupted splinter sect of Xtians at the time. Prophetically however he was adressing all of the Xtians of this day who have fallen by the strong delusion which GOD/ALLAH… Read more »

Your first lesson today is this: “Therefore God (Allah) sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false…” 2 Thessalonians: v 11. Now understand that Paul wasn’t talking about Arabs or Muslims (which should be obvious) but rather to a splinter sect of “Christians” at the time. In prophecy Paul is warning the Xtians of today that they’ll be following the spirit of Antichrist and worshiping the false Jesus and teaching… Read more »

    Ya’ll just do not get it do you? The author clearly said you are not a true Christian if you do “XYZ”. True Christians to not kill their brothers be they Muslim, Hindu, Wicca, black, white, European, African, or other Christians. Do people “claiming” to be Christians do wrongful things? Of course they do but the key is “claiming” to be Christian not actual children of the one true God. No, I do not believe Muslims or any other faith than Christian are worshiping anything but an idol. By the Word of God, they are going to hell but the… Read more »

    Abdirahman,
    I apologize for the replies you’ll get here.
    You will find mostly ignorant and bigoted readers on a sight like this, a small but dangerous minority in the American public. There will be a difficult time ahead for Islam, partly due to the actions of violent Islamist, and partly due to the actions of scared ignorant bigoted xenophobes. I pray for all my Abrahamic religion’s children. Anger and lashing out against any group as a whole will only create more terrorists and more death.

    Actually, Osman, only those with ‘soft and mushy brains’ believe in Islam. You are ashamed? Sounds like you can’t handle the truth. Now go back to your terrorist friends and talk to THEM, not us.

    FOX speaks the truth about the epidemic/scourge called radical Islamic terrorists. Islam is not peaceful,at all but have declared war on ‘humans’ ! This world,esp. The U.S. will never be controlled by Islam or be misguided about that scum called Muhammad.

    I’m curious what you think about groups like the Lord’s Resistance Army or Antibalaka in Africa or The National Liberation Front of Tripura? These are all terrorist groups who have committed mass murder and other truly terrible wars crimes, all in the name of their (perverted version of) Christianity. http://aattp.org/here-are-8-christian-terrorist-organizations-that-equal-isis/

    I am very ashamed at the ignorant comments you made about my Prophet Muhammad*. Muslims in the West are being assaulted and threatened by people like you and others who encourage that Islam preaches violence. Now, you bring up the verses in the Quran about killing. Know that the Quran was revealed over a span of 23 years. Verses were revealed to Muhammad* at certain places and certain times. So in order to know the verse COMPLETELY, you MUST know the setting the verse was revealed. Also Jihad means to struggle or strive. In fact, RIGHT NOW… I’m in Jihad…… Read more »
