Now, one militant belonging to the brutal Islamic State that has massacred Christians has converted to his victims' religion after dreaming of "a man in white" with a startling message, according to one missionary's account.

Christian Boy Was Set on Fire and Killed by Pakistani Muslims for His Faith in Jesus, Watchdog Group Confirms

Christian Boy Was Set on Fire and Killed by Pakistani Muslims for His Faith in Jesus, Watchdog Group Confirms | Meaning of life | Scoop.it
Noman Masih, the 14-year-old Pakistani boy who was burned alive by two Muslim men earlier in April and died from his injuries was targeted because he admitted that he was a Christian, watchdog group International Christian Concern has said.
Albert Wagner's insight:

This little boy was harmed for the "crime" of being Christian. To say a God would advocate for this is not rational.

 

In fact, Muhammad called Christians "my friends" and "my allies" in his eternal covenant to Christians. This is not Islam.  More can be read at  http://www.addmeaningtolife.com/?p=3354

Albert Wagner's insight:

According to the author of this post - Dr. Azeem Ibrahim, Research Professor - the Islamic State "spits on the Prophet Muhammad's treaties and dishonor him with break-taking arrogance."

 

Islam proclaims to "correct" other religions, claims their book is without error when it was done by humans and they commit horrific, evil acts in the name of God and Muhammad.

 

Because thing didn't make sense to them, they seemed to create their own religion - Islam.

 

(Why would people go to the trouble of crucifying Jesus as an elaborate hoax?

Albert Wagner's insight:

Islam's Holy Book, the Qur'an, has a verse stating that there is no coercion in accepting the faith.

 

Qur'an 2:256 reads, "There shall be no compulsion in acceptance of the religion." Even if this is interpreted as they think it is clear Islam is the only religion, it is still accepted inwardly, and NOT by force.

Kenya attack survivor says gunmen had scouted the campus - AOL.com | Meaning of life | Scoop.it
The Islamic extremists who slaughtered 147 people at a college in Kenya as they shouted "God is great" appeared to have planned extensively.
Albert Wagner's insight:

This is what Muhammad himself said about Christians. These gunmen committed blashphemy against Allah.

 

This is a message from Muhammad ibn Abdullah, as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity, near and far, we are with them.

Verily I, the servants, the helpers, and my followers defend them, because Christians are my citizens; and by Allah! I hold out against anything that displeases them.

No compulsion is to be on them. Neither are their judges to be removed from their jobs nor their monks from their monasteries. No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the Muslims' houses.

Should anyone take any of these, he would spoil God's covenant and disobey His Prophet. Verily, they are my allies and have my secure charter against all that they hate.

No one is to force them to travel or to oblige them to fight. The Muslims are to fight for them. If a female Christian is married to a Muslim, it is not to take place without her approval. She is not to be prevented from visiting her church to pray. Their churches are to be respected. They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants.

No one of the nation (Muslims) is to disobey the covenant till the Last Day (end of the world).

Albert Wagner's insight:

Did you know Islam forbids fear or coercion in public places: any illicit use of fear and coercion in public spaces for money or power.


The principle of forbidding the spreading of terror in the land is based on the Qur’an (Surah al-Ma’ida 5:33–34)


What the "Islamic State" does is no where close to what Islam is about.

Albert Wagner's insight:

Pope Francis's recent statement about how Evolution and Creationism are not at odds with each other brings rise to some personality traits.  Your responses have a partial genetic component, but God does not want you to be a robot - he gives you choices.

 

These choices show you God does love you, as the Christian God not only lets you decide things for yourself, but he made up for where you fell short.
