Radical Islam and the Bible

Purpose of Our Earthly Existence

Those of us who believe in the Bible will recognize the purpose of our being on this Earth. We are here to learn the difference between Good and Evil and to progress and be judged upon how we chose. Sometimes we learn the hard way, which is by not always choosing "Good." When we fail, we not only learn from our mistakes, we actually progress as a person. Gen 3:5 "For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

We learn by Experimentation.

In order for us to make choices, we need to have what has been called "The Law of Universal Opposites." This Law says that for most things that you can think of, there are anti-things. Right-Left, Right-Wrong, Good-Evil, Win-Lose, Up-Down, Hot-Cold, Totalitarianism-Anarchy, Force-Freedom, etc. In order to know Hot we must have available Cold. In order to know Left we must have available Right. This is why God allows evil to exist. We need it to have a choice, which is essential to our progression.

Because God wants us to Learn and Progress, he realizes that we must have the freedom to fail, so he gives us Free Agency. If he were to force us to do good, we might learn from the act, but we would not progress.

There are some who think that "Causality" prevents us from being responsible for our choices, but that is ridiculous. We learn from Cause and Effect, but it does not make the choice for us. For example, we see that if we touch the hot stove, we will get burnt. No one forces us to touch the hot stove; we make the choice ourselves.

Liberals want us to believe that most situations are grey or situational. This way they absolve themselves from being critized or of having any responsibility for their actions. If we become unclear about right and wrong, then they can say that they merely made a "mistake" instead of "doing something wrong."

We also learn by Interacting with others.

There are only two fundamental philosophies that attempt to fully explain our existence in this world. One is the "Dialectic Materialism" of Communism and the other is the "Creator of the Universe by a Supreme Being." While Darwinism incorrectly tries to explain the creation of species, it does not try to explain the rest of the world.

In the Marxist and the Socialist world, they are mainly concerned with who has the material things, and at the cost of freedom and humane treatment. The end justifies the means. They will attempt to be Robin Hood and say that taking (stealing) from the rich to give to the poor is a noble thing. They forget, that stealing is never right.

Redistribution of the Wealth is not a "just" function of a government. Taking from one who has earned it to give to one who hasn't can never be considered fair. Let the one who has it, give willingly to the one who doesn't and he will receive the blessing. Have the government do it, and no one is blessed.

The point is that if one person steals from one who has earned it, and gives to one who hasn't, the morality of the act is clearly wrong. But the act loses it's moral clarity when an organization such as the Government does the same thing. If we vote to "take and give" then we are just a nation of thieves because we are using the force of government to commit "legal plunder." See an overview of the book "The Law" at

By using Force we are robbing people of the blessing of progression. Radical Islam believes that their God wants them to "Force" everyone to their version of religion. God will never force anyone to Heaven or to join a particular religion. He teaches that we must choose to follow him "choose you this day whom ye will serve." Jos 24:15.

While most of us want to be free to make our own decisions without the interference from others or the government, as long as we don't tread on the freedom of others, there are those who feel that only they know what is best and must make many important decisions for us. They forget that Jesus said the second greatest commandment was to love thy neighbor as thyself. This is similar to the Golden Rule and the Elites should recognize that "Government knows best" is counter to this theme.

Man's inhumanity to man is prevalent throughout the Bible and so is Government's (Kings and Pharaohs) inhumanity to man. The Founding Fathers of this great nation recognized this fact and set up our form of Government to keep us as free from interference as possible. George Washington said"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

Radical Islam would have us all under an Imam, or Theocracy, with many less freedoms than we all now have. The Liberals would have us become Socialists with their "National Health Care" and other entitlement, (Robin Hood), programs. While both should be feared, we must remember that the Radical Islamic terrorists want to kill everyone that is not Muslim, while the Liberals just want to take away our individualism, which in effect takes away our freedom. Being equal is not the same as having rights. We cannot have equality and still have individualism. They are diametrically opposed.

If you think about it, even liberals agree that everyone should not get an "A" grade in school. We must reward superior effort, or we will cease to have the capacity to provide for those who don't. Therefore we all discriminate when we choose our friends, or a political affilitation such as the Democratic Party, or Republican Party.

It is a good thing to discriminate in our choices.

Discrimination has become a dirty word, not to ever be used. Since when do we want everyone to be the "same." We want equal treatment for equal behavior, but not equal rewards for un-equal behavior. That is Marxism! It has never worked and it never will, because it goes against the nature of man.

Many humans will do as little as possible to get by, and if they can get someone else to provide for them they will. This is one of the reasons for stealing. Get something for as little effort as possible. Poverty isn't a "cause" of stealing! Rich people also are known to steal. Gaining wealth doesn't make someone more moral all of the sudden.

People act the way they act because that is the way they want to act.
