Muslims are NOT the Enemy!

“God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Christians have only one enemy and that is Satan.

A majority of humanity living estranged from the one true God have neither the opportunity nor the freedom to experience the mercy of Jesus Christ. How can we be loving messengers of the Holy gospel if we are so busy engaged in an unsanctioned holy war? There is a time for struggle and persecution and there will ultimately be a holy war, but the Lord and his angels will lead that charge; in the meantime what good have we done? What mercy have we shown? Have we shared the gospel? Have we allowed our light to shine before men in word and deed?

What of the American and/or democracy-loving Muslim who merely wants to live in peace. They may even share some of our traditional values, they simply lack the full picture of truth. They were never offered any kind of alternative. We needn’t have the media nor the neocon define our enemy for us. The problem lies with those who seek to silence us or prevent us from forming bonds and relationships with those we are told to hate. Well, I don’t hate them. I don’t hate ‘gays.’ I don’t even hate God haters, for I was once one.

Woodrow Wilcox


Satan seeks to lead us astray. In the name of secularism, atheism, sexual diversity and religious toleration, we are drawn away from the love of God. Even those who identify as ‘Christians’ are guilty of chasing away the weary seeker and potential convert. Politicians and social engineers will make their play but in our hearts and minds lies a better way.


What was meant for evil could be wrought for good, if only we would let it…

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

    According to The Religion of Peace article at “The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.” The primary focus of their holy war is against Jews and Christians. By definition, this makes any Muslim who believes in their “holy” book an enemy of Christians. Yes, Jesus tells us to love our enemies. Nonetheless, they are still our enemies.

    You write, “How can we be loving messengers of the Holy gospel if we are so busy engaged in an unsanctioned holy war?” You will never find an answer unless you ask the right question. Who do you mean by “we”? I’m not engaged in a war, nor is my church. Are you talking about the United States? We are not engaged in a holy war, Isis is. And war isn’t what’s preventing you from sharing the gospel with Muslims in the Middle East. Repressive Islamic theocracies under Sharia law consider proselytizing a crime. They also kill people for converting to Christianity. And merely questioning the tenets of Islam is considered blasphemy, which is a crime.

    I have known and worked with Muslims who were good people and good citizens. My presumption is that they too, as you say, are “democracy loving” and want to live in peace. However, fundamental Islam is not compatible with freedom of religion or freedom of speech. Those freedoms that we associate with “democracy” are strictly controlled, dictated by both their religion and state (there is no separation of church and state in authentic Islam). And I would remind you that “democracy” is really a euphemism. We live in a Republic (thus, the electoral college).

    It is true that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities in heavenly places. Therefore we are able to lovingly relate the gospel message to Muslims. However, we live in a nation that has been targeted by Muslim terrorists. If we as a nation (not as Christians) fail to address that reality, then we are subject to be the victims of people who would not have a second thought about chopping off your head with a rusty knife.

    There is a big difference between how individuals and churches are to conduct themselves as Christians and how the U.S. should conduct itself as a nation.

      Globalists & Satanists are pulling the strings…. Islam is only a threat to us when we fund and arm then. Globalists are the #1 threat. The religious can be reached, the globalist wants nothing do with God or religion…. Islam at least sees Jesus as a prophet and a good man…. Its a better starting point to reach a non terroristic Muslim than a satanic-humanist….. I think we need to worry about globalists & manipulators in our own gov….. Both parties, they are the #1 enemy of the citizen and the state

        I agree with you about globalists…in both parties and around the world.
