Featuring old friend David Wood:
How ISIS Is Converting Muslims to Christianity (David Wood)
Acts17Apologetics | 5.II.2019
- 2:16 Nice, perhaps 1 reason to presume ISIS will as such not be the Apocalyptical Beast.
They will end Islam before coming near to that ultimate try to end Christianity.
(OK, there are some Catholic prophets who have said it is actually The Great Catholic Monarch who will end Islam, Judaism, Protestant heresy so that only a few are left of each ... leaving sth darker, ultimately, to those who won't be Catholics, or to most of them ... yes, it will be darker than ISIS).
- 3:11 "Even under the Syrian régime before the revolution, it was strictly forbidden to change religion from Islam to Christianity or the opposite."
Wait ... is he talking about Bashir al Assad's Syria here?
- As you mentioned Omar, can you imagine a Christian people beginning as all Christians when he arrived, and then major parts of it being forced to Islamise?
And now Christians being a minority in that people?
I can not just imagine that people, I know of one : Palestinians.
That's why I take Christian Palestinians as my umpire for right and wrong in Holy Land : if they complain more of Israel, I complain more of Israel, if they complain more of Hamas, I complain more of Hamas, and while they usually complain of both, I do so too.
There was an Orthodox priest (the nation is divided basically between Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholics), who about Galilaean Palestinians was saying, they had more than enough of the Jewish Islamic vendetta.
- I somehow believe you reading the Qoran is a form of torture, we went through that in Swedish school ... "religious studies".
Now, more to the point, since the Swedish school did not expose me to all that much of the Quran, so is being confronted to harbrained Protestant attacks on Catholicism ... not meaning you, but I have started dealing with one major torture monger; GotQuestions:
Great Bishop of Geneva! : Answering 83 Claims from Got Questions : Catholic Bible and Origin of Catholic Church
Note, the Christian or semi-Christian you just cited mentions a denomination from 18th C Germany.
What about the one from AD 33 Palestine? There are not all that many realistic claimants (RC, EO, Copts, Armenians, Assyrians or Nestorians).
Perhaps even more hairbrained than GotQuestions, what about this:
"The astonishing story from an ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, which was told to him by Cardinal Bea while he was at the Vatican. When Cardinal Bea shared with Rivera in the Vatican, he said, these writings are guarded because they contain information that links the Vatican to the creation of Islam. Both sides have so much information on each other, that if exposed, it could create such a scandal that it would be a disaster for both religions."
Yadda, yadda, yadda ....
No one questions Alberto Rivera was a Jesuit. I just checked his credential for even being Spanish, yes, he has as full name "Alberto Magno Rivera Romero" that is one saint's name (Alberto Magno refers to the teacher of St Thomas Aquinas, there are other Alberts) and two surnames.
No one questions he was told things by Cardinal Bea.
No one questions Cardinal Bea was if so not simply testing him.
No one questions Cardinal Bea was if so and not testing him simply repeating fake news in "insiders knowledge" of some infiltrating actually AntiCatholic group (he has other connections to ending Catholicism in Catholicism, like being overecumenical).
Doesn't that and similar hogwash make you think twice about remaining a Protestant?
- Radical Islam will fail.
However, moderate Islam (from the outset saying one does not believe the Quran 100% or the example of Muhammed 100% esp as applicable today) may one day be one part of the Beast, since liberals as well as Russia (supposedly conservative) will do nothing to beat it, and since it has confusion at the heart of its "message".
ISIS is clear on brutality and perhaps on a few more things probably less popular than brutality in today's world.
Salafis in France are being suspected of being ISIS sympathisers, are being deprived of rights over their children's education.
One of the terrorists had a wife who fled to ISIS in Syria, bc France had destroyed her life by CPS during her teens and even post-teen youth.
I kind of think that man paid a ticket to a haven for his wife by attacking the Hyper-Kacher (kosher supermarket).
This kind of thing may lead Salafists to continue supporting ISIS for some time. Instead of being duly disgusted and drawing the right conclusions.
