I have another blog with identical posts, except for this one. So for the sake of my readers here, I am posting this from my other blog so you can see why I do what I do, and how I try to carry myself. SHIVA, this is for you. Maybe you will better understand who I am by reading this. Elric never did, maybe your better able to comprehend English. Understand, I am not you, I won’t think like you. Elric thought I never did a “good enough” job on informing about radical Islam because I didn’t write the way he thought I should. Because of that, he decided he should “help” me write MY blog, by spamming it. It’s good we don’t all think alike, how boring would that be, but his last comments with salahudin showed exactly that he could only see his view, even when it was shown to be false. You are not going to change my mind so don’t beat me about the head and shoulders with trying. It gets very old, very fast. I’m glad you like some of my writing, and thank you for saying it, but please, please, please, respect me as a person, and follow my rules. Below is the post from the other blog.
I thought that I had gone over this enough, for everyone to understand, but apparently not. Its kind of long, but please read it all. I don’t want any more misunderstandings. I want you all to understand what I am doing and why.
My blog is about RADICAL Islam. I write it to inform. I invite Muslims to comment on it for a variety of reasons. First, communication is the key to unlocking misunderstanding. Second, the threat of radical Islam, is a threat to us ALL. That includes Muslims. The terrorists have made it clear that unless you are a Sunni, and want a Taliban style government worldwide…you are a Apostate, and worth nothing but death.
I feel so strongly about what I am doing here, that my eyes are in a constant state of “blurry” vision. There are days when I spend up to 18 hours on the Internet, dealing with this subject only.
Even Radical Muslims are welcome here on this blog. ALL are welcome here. But there are some things that are not welcome here.
I am a Christian, as a Christian, I try to live my life according to the teachings in the Bible. I’m far from perfect, but I try to live, what I read. I am not here to denigrate anybodies religion. No body wants to feel like someone is trashing their religion. No matter what or who you deem as sacred, no one wants that trashed. People will become defensive and will tune you out. That is not what I want to happen here.
I believe in the GOLDEN RULE. For anyone who doesn’t know what the that is, : Do Unto Others, As You Want Done to You!! …..Its one of those things your mother taught you as a child. I want communication, not altercation. Honey, not vinegar.
Do I believe the way, that some people do in my blog comments?? Absolutely not. However, I try not to be rude, in any of my dealings, INCLUDING when talking to radicals on their blogs. Below are just some of the verses that I try to use when working on my blog, and in life in general. I know some people, don’t want to hear it, but at least this one time, I want you to understand the who/what/and how, of me. The following is from the Bible, I tried to leave in enough of context so you know what he is talking about.
Jesus said in Matt. 12:36-37
But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (vs 37) For by thy words thou shall be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Paul spoke in Ephesians, about speaking the truth in love.
Ephesians 4:1-6 and 4:14-15 says the following:
(vs 1) I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, (vs 2), with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, (vs 3), endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (vs 4), There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling, (vs 5), one Lord, one faith, one baptism, (vs 6), one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (vs 14), that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting of men, (vs 15), but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head, Christ
You can speak the truth in love no matter where you are or what you are talking about.
Proverbs 29:11 says, “A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.” I also can’t forget one of my favorite verse’s, “But the fruit of the spirit is, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Against such things there is no law.” Gal. 5:22-23I welcome all people to comment on my blog, I DO NOT welcome bigots, or racist. There are people who believe all Muslim people are terrorists, or terrorist sympathizers. I DO NOT, there is no way anyone can convince me of that. By thinking and acting like that, you are no different than the terrorists themselves, who are so blinded by hatred, they can’t see the hand in front of their face.
We know how the terrorists think. If you spend any time reading any of my blog, you know what they think. Its no big secret. The point is, I can inform without being rude and using racist statements. If you can’t, then don’t comment. I don’t want to censure anybody, because it has been done to me on some radical blogs, and even here on 360. BUT, I will not allow anybody to insult, accuse, or be disrespectful, to anybody else commenting on this blog. I will delete any statements with racist hateful remarks.
I want people of all faiths to come to my blog. I want Muslims to come to my blog. I have tried everything I can think of to keep people civil. Some times, there is just nothing more to do than delete rude remarks. If you think I am not doing a good enough job, you can do 2 things. #1) You can email me on things you would like to see. #2) You can write your own blog. I can’t get much more clear.
You can be a glass half full, or a glass half empty kind of person. A glass half full says: “If all Muslims believed like the terrorists, then why aren’t they joining them, singing their praises.?.” A glass half empty says: “If all Muslims didn’t believe like the terrorists, where are their voices?”…..I am a glass half full person, in this regard.
I don’t think that all Muslims know, what the terrorist want, which is why I am writing this blog. How many Americans really know what and why we are fighting?? But you want me to believe that a billion Muslims know and approve of what the terrorists are doing….does that make any sense to anybody??
I want to add one more thing, from 2 Peter 1:5-8 Remember here too, that it can, will and should apply to your whole life, not just in knowledge of Jesus Christ. No matter who you are, or who you worship.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
