QUESTION: Is it fair to equate Muslim terror to the Crusades or slavery in early American history? 

 

ANSWER:  It is absolutely not fair nor even close to equivalent to compare Muslim Jihad with the so-called “Christian” Crusades or the tragedy of slavery in our country.  The very foundations upon which these religions are based are diametrically opposed:

 

Consider, for example, that according to “TheReligionofPeace.com,” “The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.  Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.  Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter."

 

Jesus Christ never commands Christians to force others to proselytize to Christianity.  Even when directly confronted or persecuted, Christians are told to “turn the other cheek.”  The Crusades were carried out by unsaved butchers who were misinterpreting the clear teaching of Christ for their own selfish and prideful lust for power.  Many true Christians were martyred along with Jews and Muslims at the hands of unsaved Catholic Inquisitors as they marched to Jerusalem because they refused to convert to their apostate church – in the name of so-called “Christianity.”

 

The point being the Quran calls for forced conversion under Sharia Law and the Bible does not speak of any such dastardly approach to true faith in God.  The reason so many unbelievers were to be found in the Catholic church at the time is because Constantine forced their ‘baptism’ by ‘the church,’ under threat of death.   Millions ‘converted’ to Christianity not by conviction but rather by convenience – do it or die.  From there it was a small step to the Crusades.

 

That answers why Islamic Jihad and the Crusades are mutually exclusive, what about Jihad and slavery in the United States?  Once again, the Bible is clear on the subject of slavery.

 

“And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.” (Exodus 21:16)  “If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.” (Deuteronomy 24:7)  “For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;” (1 Timothy 1:10)

 

Remember, instead of using VISA and Master Cards to ‘make ends meet’ in Bible times, men sometimes had to become what we would call ‘indentured servants.’  These indentured servants were being referred to when the New Testament speaks approvingly of master-servant relationships – not forced slavery.

 

To try and justify Jihad today by comparing it to apostate Christianity of yesteryear is juvenile at best.  The issue is what is happening today.  And today all Jihad terror is Islamic – and that fact is not debatable.
