Bin Laden's Error
Terrorist Osama Bin Laden issued a statement
immediately following the Global Coalition's retaliatory response to the
cowardly attack on the
In that media release he made several statements
that really need a closer look at. He gave glory to "God" for
bringing FEAR to
Islam is actually older than Mohamed, it delves
back into pagan antiquity, but that's another story that I may address at
another time. Given that Mohamed recognised the Christian Bible as the Word of
God and indeed both Christians and Jews as: "People Of The Book",
Osama Bin Laden's claim that God has brought fear to
The Bible clearly states that God is "NOT
the author of confusion, [or literally disturbance] but the author of
peace". (1Cor ) "NOT
the giver of fear (or literally dread) but of Love and Power and a Sound
Mind". (2 Timothy 1:7) The same Bible Mohamed [the founder of Islam]
recognises as God Almighty's Word also states quite emphatically that "God
Is Love" (1 John 4:8) and that "there is no fear in love
but perfect love casts out all fear because fear has torment".
(1 John 4:18). Perfect love in its incarnate manifestation according to the
Bible is Jesus Christ. Therefore the god who brought fear upon the people of
Sadly there has been a lot of senseless hysteria and unwarranted vilification associated with this whole uprising of evil. Innocent people who have chosen the Moslem persuasion have been caught up in the furore as some racially motivated bigots have sought to target them for reprisal in the wake of Bin Laden's stand. The truth is Osama Bin Laden no more represents fundamental Islamic faith than the Crusaders of the twelfth century [1096 to 1291] represented fundamental Christian faith.
The hard truth is this - Those of the Islamic faith who choose to side with Osama Bin Laden need to realise that they are in fact crossing the line from light to darkness in doing so. The "Allah" Osama Bin Laden serves is NOT the Creator, but the deceiver.
Now having said this, we as believers should be seizing this opportunity, not to ostracise those who have been raised according to Islamic tradition and practice, but to love them and share with them the REAL hope and deliverance that ONLY comes in Jesus Christ. Moslems deny Jesus is the Messiah - they are wrong! And now is the time to tell them.
When it comes to the point of salvation, the Judeo-Christian ethic and Bin Laden's version of Islam are irreconcilable, but that's not to say that God doesn't love those who follow other religions - HE DOES! It's not His will that any should perish but that all would come to salvation - but that salvation is ONLY available in Jesus Christ.
We all need to realise that Osama Bin Laden is not a Moslem - he's a Monster. He is a cowardly, hate filled fanatic and his beliefs are satanic in origin despite the "god" rhetoric. Time will show that to be the case. In the meantime, we as believers should be praying for the lost and the searching - as history comes to a close.
