Christian persecution is coming.
It's really not much of a head-scratcher when you look past the physical. Christians are the logical choice when it comes to the enemy. Why would he go after any others when they do his work for him. Deception rules the day, in the world, and in some cases the church.
Wow...both excellent points q mark and I had not quite thought of it from the standpoint of others already doing the work for the enemy.
Seems to me that the only reason a group would act so hostile about the practice of religion is because they are intimidated by it.
They are indeed concerned and intimidated by something within the Christian beief system. For this reason they have worked for literally hundreds of years to change, alter, and pollute the doctrine...by subtilty...privily..such that the Believers of this system are mostly not aware that changes have taken place.
Looks to me like they are cherry-picking their targets; Christians won't react violently so why not lock them away first. Many Muslims on the other hand will react harshly and violently so that's a tougher nut to crack.
Islam is a better fit for the purposes of the anti Christian change agents. It is not quite as anti American/anti God as is Communism...but it is anti Christian and anti Hebrew...hence a perfect fit for them. Because in Islam ..the state is also god..ala G. F. W. Hegel. Hence as good a fit as communism.
The anti God/Anti Christian/anti Hebrew believers...want a world in which..... The son of the bondwoman ...Shall Be Heir ....with the son of the freewoman
....This from the fourth Chapter of Galatians.
A World class doctrine or take over... a hijacking if you like. And Islam fists this bill of ladening nicely...by way of Ishmael...and away from Issac and his seed. "In Issac shall thy seed be called." Not in Ishmael.
World class anti god people will tolerate anything but the religion of the line of Abraham...and I mean anything.
For these people...all gods are the same god...all religions are the same religion..from their own writings.
But the Word says...
The son of the bondwoman ...shall not be heir....with the son of the freewoman.
In Issac shall thy seed be called..
They want ...In Ishmael shall thy seed be called. Beware of the Ishmaelites..for they are not all Muslims...many are westerners.
