First of all, if Allah has called blacks “to give life,” as a group, they haven’t been doing a great job of it. We are all aware that there are plenty of black on black murders in the US. There are also black on white crimes as well. Beyond this, many blacks who also consider themselves to be Muslims believe as Muhammad did, that all infidels should be killed or at the very least, live under a system of dhimmitude. This is where the non-Muslim is allowed to live by paying a tax. However, this can be revoked at any point by Muslims who believe that the non-Muslim has violated Sharia law. In short, there is no guarantee that paying the dhimmi tax will mean prolonged life.
As Daniel continued, he explained that another empire would come after Babylon and Daniel described aspects of it, saying that although Babylon was represented by a lion with wings, the next empire to come along was represented by a bear that was lopsided. It turns out that the empire that followed Babylon in history was the Medo-Persian Empire.
But with the various blogs, news, and opinion sites, there’s a great deal to choose from and it doesn’t take all that long to vet the information. In this latest case, only days after Crimea voted to secede from Ukraine and join with Russia, word is that now Russians in the Gaza Strip want to do the same thing. Russians in the Gaza Strip? I was’t aware that there were enough Russians worth counting there. But apparently, Russia is willing to defend them.
In essence, the commandment based on the Mosaic Law of Exodus 20 actually states and means, “Thou Shalt Not Murder.” But look at how convoluted and confused things have become today. More people are being arrested for defending their homes and the people who live there from intruders. Do a search of the Internet to read one story after another. What’s the message? In liberal states where they are trying to outlaw guns, don’t think that you can use a gun to defend yourself in your home when someone breaks in and has a gun of their own.
Here in the U.S., the culture is western. We don’t speak Koine Greek or Hebrew. We do not understand the Jewish mindset or culture. Because of that, we can easily miss the meaning of Scripture because we simply aren’t familiar with Jewish idioms, or Hebrew poetic language. Not knowing these things can be a roadblock in truly understanding God’s Word.
The real issue is the heart. People kill people with knives, baseball bats, rocks, and more. A recent knife attack in China left 27 people dead and 109 injured, many more than were killed or injured in the Sandy Hook tragedy.
Liberals don’t really care if they “win” or not. To them, they always win, even when they lose. It’s like debating with Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, who routinely makes absolutely ridiculous statements like the Constitution being 400 years old as she recently did. Even though that is wrong, we will never hear her amend her statement or say that it was wrong. If she says anything, it will be to reinforce what she said, or her aids will come to her rescue and provide a reason why she said what she said, but that she was not wrong in saying it. She’s done this many times in the past as well.
