Allah wasn’t coopted by Mohammed, Allah was the pagan high god for the Arabs, had been for thousands of years; the Arabs have a pantheon just like the Norse, Greeks, Egyptians, etc. In fact, Mohommed’s relatives (Koresh tribe) ran all the temples to the pagan gods… read up on it, it’ll explain what Mo’s beef was with the Koresh tribe (and why they wanted to kill him so bad).

Oh look, another Google atheist. Did you type that on your own or just copy/paste it? Atheists don’t believe on Moses, so why are you here running your ignorant mouth trying to make points on something you don’t understand? The secular answer is because that was the rules of engagement for the time. Sorry that warfare back in the day doesn’t rise to your lofty level of video game ragdolls disappearing bloodlessly after a few seconds. You wouldn’t understand the real reason.

Allah isn’t the Jewish/Christian god. The Arab pantheon is easy enough to research on your own.
@FNA, sorry for your loss. Sorrier that everybody is so disappointed that a God isn’t the character in I Dream of Genie

That shouldn’t be controversial at all. Allah is not YWH. Allah is the name of the pagan Arab moon god (the one who’s color is green and who’s symbol is a crecent moon, also known as Sin (not the verb or noun, it’s the name)). There’s no serious Jewish or Christian theologian, archeologist, anthropologists that will say that they’re the same gods. Totally different origins, regions, histories. For some interesting reading, read up on the Four Daughters of Allah – it’s all in the Arab pantheon. But it’s just another thing we have to pretend is true, and thanks Blaze for breathlessly reporting this with no context or background.

You could tell a good story with all those values and as long as you didn’t dress it up as a bible study it would/coud be fine if it was well done. Try Devil’s Advocate, for example (without some parts).

Churchinity is the way I hear it described. Jesus didn’t go to church. Jesus didn’t have a band. And he didn’t mince words.
The church has to be the pillar and ground of Truth. Jesus went to "church", being that he was Jewish, to the synagogue, every sabbath, as was his custom. Jesus had apostles and disciples following him and these taught everything He said. Jesus made the law more perfect and demanded absolute loyalty to the word of God.
FIRST : Jesus went to CHURCH often to teach ! You should try STUDYING the NEW TESTAMENT and learn the TRUTH about JESUS !

So the takeaway from this is people identifying as Christians is going down because:
1) Anti Christian messaging
2) Christians are ********
3) Church is a drag
I have an alternative theory. Anti-Christian messaging isn’t going to stop unless Christians go Jihadi, but that’s unlikely, so I guess parents are going to have to do their jobs and teach their children that all the garbage being pushed by society is precisely that: Garbage. If you bother reading the Book, things seem to be happening apace and according to plan and no amount of hand holding and kumbaya singing is going to change any of it. If being nice and mouthing platitudes was going to fix everything, somebody in particular wouldn’t have to be coming back with a sword.
Christians are a-holes – I haven’t met that many of them that were like that, maybe it just seems that way when people find out you’re against killing babies, generational theft, sexual depravity, lying, or for any of the other things that are REQUIRED to be a Christian like being able to render prudent judgment and opposing evil.
Church is a drag. You don’t have to go to church to be a Christian, mostly you just have to be able to read.
Reaching out to people is one thing, but doing so blindly is foolish. So what if I can find that I have 90% in common with a baby-butchering Marxist, he’s still going in the Pit and its probably better for me that I don’t hang out with him – in fact, that’s biblical. I think Beck’s quest to be a peace maker a
You are correct. It IS happening apace, and it HAS to happen because if it DIDN'T happen, the prophecy would be complete BS. Therefore, we KNOW what is coming and WE must prepare OURSELVES and OUR OWN for it. We cannot save everyone and must leave them to their own devices. The wicked shall be like the sands of the seashore. Oh well, it is written, so shall it come to pass.

I don’t think most Americans have any idea about what Islam is – why would they? Nobody is taught anything truthful about the life of Mohammed, particularly in the Medina period. There are places that seem peaceful in the Middle East, like Jordan, Saudi, Kuwait, but they’re ruled with an iron fist and those government have heavily infiltrated their populations with intelligence and secret police personnel to keep the lid on Islamists. We’ll see what happens in Europe well before we get major issues here – the tipping point is when the Muslim population hits 20% and higher.

First who the hell is Sharon Bollum? And she can determine a good church from bad church based on what? If they adhere to 1 Timothy 2 ?

Nobody cares about US rhetoric now, everybody knows Obama is a weakling – what’s he doing now, dropping a bomb a week on Isis and making sure to steer clear of any Russian defenses of Assad? Control Israel from what? Building apartments in Jerusalem? That isn’t working and so what, as if that pertained to anything. I’m not sure what working with that freak show of kleptocrats that is the UN – which we foot the majority of the bill for accomplishes, it doesn’t have troops, and most people, leaders and countries mock their stern letters.

The Russians are fond of chess, and our politicians are blithering idiots (see various from Pelosi, Biden) only concerned about strategies to hold power for the next two year election cycle. Russia and China will do what they want when we’re in the middle of a fiscal collapse and probably in the middle of a second civil war.

And, any jackass that says the techniques didn’t work is a liar. Any SERE course graduate or instructor knows better.

Always nice to see the Ivory Tower sitters in here that don’t have the foggiest notion of what a war is. I guess it’s just like Battlefield (pick your FPS), the ragdolls disappear after awhile, not a drop of blood. And those drone and JDAM strikes, they just make people dissapear, no fuss, no muss. I do get so tired of people that say the vapid platitudes like “we shouldn’t lower ourselves to that level”… really? We stick bayonets in peoples guts, shoot others in the face, blow their limbs off with high powered weaponry. Ask an EOD guy what happens to a survivor of a high explosive overpressure… and all that is fully legally approved. I get so sick of hand wringers and ignoramuses pontificating that there’s a way to wage war that won’t get their white gloves bloody. I can guarantee you that any one of our detainees is secretly grateful that we used our techniques on them instead of theirs. I won’t bother to get into the point that the bulk of these techniques are simply SERE course techniques we use on our own people – the point would be lost on the tragically stupid.

It was a stupid idea anyway, there’s been scientific tests where the snakes put around 400lbs per square inch on the test device – and people have known for a while that the people that have been the victim of an anaconda were literally squished to a pulp, all the bones broken. The guy is lucky the snake didn’t really try to go for it.

Religion isn’t going away, libs like Krauss have to belong to a group that breeds in order to propagate their disbelief. Meantime the m u s li ms are breeding at a 10-1 ratio.
Over 50℅ of atheists are former Christians - in otherwords, the leading source of atheism is Christianity.

I don’t really even know what the point of posting an article like this is. Reading the comments, the bulk of the people have the correct theological rebuttals – Lance Ford is simply a deceiver and is going to get a lot of people in trouble. That “just another sin” thread running around through here is also dangerous – God didn’t burn down two cities for petty theft.
