My Pilgrimage: Chapter Nine: The Battle of the Gods And Oriental Patience
By Michael Moriarty
I’m a Judeo-Christian, so there’s little doubt about the name of the God I worship.
And the Lord I adore? Christ.
However, since the God of Jehovah is indisputably being challenged by the Islamic God of Allah?!
Which god will win?
That’s simple. The god that doesn’t condone suicide.
Though there seem to be many different kinds of Islam, the “Radical” version has, with passionately devoted abandon, chosen, as well as mass murder, rabid suicide.
Therefore, Islam is a kind of Judas Religion.
Jealous of Jesus in much the same way Judas was, Mohammed obviously intended his followers to not only destroy Christ but all of Christianity.
Christians are now dying in the Middle East because, at least according to Radical Islam, apparently nothing of any importance can be left on earth but Islam.
The day in which I am writing this is Holy Saturday.
It is the day in which Christ’s body lay in the tomb while His Spirit went through the Harrowing of Hell. During it, He brought salvation to all the righteous that had died since the beginning of the world.
Christ was crucified because mankind repeatedly tries to kill God… and God keeps forgiving His own creation, the human race, for wanting to destroy their Creator.
Mohammed ordered his followers to kill in order to save Islam from anything that was or is not Islamic.
Radical Muslims are encouraged to sacrifice their own lives, to commit suicide while they bomb and destroy any corner of humanity that Islam might consider heretical to Mohammed.
There is no forgiveness in Radical Islam.
Whereas Christ has become nothing but the symbol of forgiveness.
Which Prophet will triumph?
Christ or Mohammed?
Matthew 18:3, “Unless you become like little children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.”
And Christ clearly meant heaven on earth!
If we cannot resurrect our innocence as children now, while we live? How can there possibly be any heaven for us in the afterlife?
Whereas, Radical Islam feels commanded to create hell on earth for the non-believers.
Somehow, through some bizarre sleight of intellectual and spiritual hand-wringing, to create hell on earth is to insure heaven in the afterlife.
It sounds a lot like the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un.
Is there much difference between the atomic bomb threats of Kim Jong Un and the nightmares of ISIS?
Death to the Free World!
Death to America!!
Why are both Kim Jong Un and ISIS so certain that the deaths of both the Free World and America are possible?
Members of ISIS commit suicide to serve their god, Allah.
Kim Jong Un is committing inevitable suicide because apparently he thinks of himself as a kind of god.
Some, incredibly horrible men like Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong, have gotten away with such godlike, homicidal behavior.
Communists, in their earliest days, were insanely fashionable and their Communist religion easy to sell.
Nazism and Hitler were only fashionable in Germany and in a few diabolically shameless corners of humanity. The bloom of the Third Reich unavoidably fell off of the bloody rose.
Nazi Germany was destroyed but Anti-Semitism?
It will, of course, be unavoidably and inevitably sent into hiding again.
Kim Jong Un, I suspect is more like Hitler than like either Stalin or Mao.
Like Hitler, the only god he has to sell is himself.
He’s not really a Communist.
He’s Kim Jong Un.
Like Hitler, he’s simply an ultimately suicidal villain.
He doesn’t know that, of course.
That’s why Christ, The Lamb, would have forgiven him because, as Jesus said from the Cross, Kim doesn’t really know what he is doing.
However, Christ of the Second Coming?
Christ, the Lion!
Kim and ISIS and Anti-Semitism?!
News Flash: It seems, on this Holy Saturday, that Red China has successfully intervened and convinced Kim Jong Un that he shouldn’t do anything more than parade a show of force. No atomic testing in North Korea on Holy Saturday.
Perhaps Kim is more like Benito Mussolini without an Adolf Hitler. Red China, rather like President Trump, seems to have “negotiated” with their homicidal ally.
Oriental “patience” with evil is far more enduring than we’d hoped.
How “patient”, however, is Christ of the Second Coming?
We shall see.
