A St. Petersburg, Fla newspaper reports that a circuit judge will be not be using state law or US federal law to decide a case. Hillsborough Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen will be using Muslim Sharia law to decide the case instead. The last time I checked, the United States was a Christian nation, founded by Christians upon Christian principles. The last time I checked, the Koran was not acknowledged in the US Constitution nor was it acknowledged in US or state law. Why is it that a judge will now be using the Koran as a guide in deciding the merits of this case? The title of this blog is Sound the Trumpet. If you read the "About..." section, you will see that one of the purposes of this blog is to sound a warning to people -- a warning to show the dangers which face our nation as well as the church. At the moment, our great Christian nation is fighting a war in several countries. From our perspective, these are wars against terror and wars defending the rights of individuals to determine their own destiny. However, from the viewpoint of our opponent, these are separate fronts in a single holy-war. There are many in the world who believe the teachings of a man named Mohammad are true. They believe all people must convert to Islam, even if it means they be converted at the edge of a sword. God would never condone this. Today, that holy-war is being waged on our own soil as well. There is a rich Muslim heritage of hate toward anyone who bases their faith in the Word of God. There is a custom of hate which goes back to God's rejection of Ismael. If you recall the Word of God, Isaac was the one chosen by God, not the son born of adultery. While our brave soldiers are fighting for freedom on foreign soil, sharia law is coming to America. The population of the United States stood together and rallied when our great Christian nation was attacked by Muslims on Sept. 11, 2001. Where are the cries of God bless America and the rallies as our nation is attacked through the use of Muslim sharia law? While our brave soldiers are fighting for the freedom of other nations, our nation is being destroyed from within and there is hardly more than a peep from our people.
1Ti 2:1-4 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; (2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; (4) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
We need to pray. As Christians, we need to pray for all to be saved. We also need to pray for those who are in authority and we need to pray for all of these to be saved. Moreover, we should pray that God will guide leaders, in ways they do not understand, to protect our nation and the liberties we enjoy. We should pray that our leaders come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We should also pray that the eyes of all Americans be opened and the Muslim attackers be revealed for who they really are.

Millions of Muslim's believe that their religion is the right one, millions of Christian's belive that their religion is the right one. You both cannot be right. And neither of you have any proof whatsoever to prove who is correct; and waving your book around is not proof.

Natalie, If we had more time, I would explain the many of the differences between Islam and Christianity. Basically, it boils down to this: God promised Abraham he would have a son and that that son would be the father of many children - as many as the stars in the sky. Abraham got ahead of God and fathered an illegitimate child - Ishmael. Later, God gave Abraham a legitimate child through Sarah. That child was Isaac. Since then, there has been a war between the two, both claiming to be the rightful heir. The only problem is that one was legitimate and one was not.

From those two, two religions grew: one honored God (descended from Isaac), one did not.

Today, Islam is the fruit of an illegitimate relationship.

As for the proof: it clearly exists to anyone who is willing to open their eyes to look for it. It is present in the creation. It is present in life, it is present in death. It is even present, if you will be honest and look, in your heart.
