Why I Hate Email Forwards

I'm the first to admit that I DO NOT read email forwards. Half the time the email is a hoax and the other half of the time it's bordering on blasphemy.

God says NOTHING in the Bible about blessing you or making your wishes come true if you forward an email. Got it? Good.

Once in a while though a forward comes through that has an interesting subject line, so I read it. I'm almost always sorry I did. I received one such email today. This is what it read:

This is something I've wondered about for some time now: How & why do
the Muslims hate us & everyone else so much? Doesn't their God
teach
them to love? Apparently not!

Can a good Muslim be a good American? I sent that question to
a friend
who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.

The following is his reply:

Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god
of Arabia.

Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah
except Islam (Quran, 2:256)

Scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam
and the
Quran (Koran).

Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns
in prayer five times a day.

Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make
friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual
leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of
America, the great Satan.

Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat
and
scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran
4:34).

Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution
since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible
to be corrupt.

Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow
freedom of religion and _expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.
Every
Muslim government is either dictatorial or
autocratic.

Spiritually - no. Because when we declare "one nation under God," the
Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly
father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names.

Therefore after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be
very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be
both "good" Muslims and good
Americans.

Call it what you wish....it's still the truth.

If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements,
perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who
understand this, the better it will be for our country and our
future.

Pass it on Fellow Americans. The religious war is bigger than we know or
understand.

GRRRRR! That came to me from a Christian. Obviously a racist Christian. While I understand that Islam is a false religion and that it's not a religion of peace as some say it is, we, as Christians have an obligation to love Muslims.

If we really want to get to the nitty gritty in this email, then Christians can't be good Americans either.

Theologically our allegience is to Jehovah, NOT America.
Religiously, no other religion is accepted as truth.
Scripturally, our allegience is to God, not America.
Geographically, we have no allegience. Christians exist in EVERY nation in the world.
Socially, while we can associate with non-Christians, we are to be IN the world, not OF the world.
Politically, while we should elect Christian leaders, often the leaders we elect are Christian in name only.
Domestically, wives are commanded to SUBMIT to their husbands, an idea that is not accepted inthe US.
Intellectually... while the constitution may be based on the Bible, many of the founding fathers were Deists, not Christians. As such, they chose general parameters on which to build this country. The ideas supported in teh Constitution are not strictly Christian. Should Christians obey then?
Philosophically, Christians cannot allow false religions to exist without, on some aspect, evangelizing the lost.
Spiritually, While we do pledge to One Nation under God, our nation is sadly, far from God. Lately, I find myself distancing myself from the US and drawing nearer to God. While some say this is a Christian nation, I say, take a look around. It's anything but.

So that's my rant for the day.

Your words are sad and alarming. Your "understanding" is flawed and biased. As a muslim, I know and "understand" that Christianity is a real religion. Your real obligation is to educate yourself, not to "love Muslims." I wish you the best.
