The State Of Texas Accepts Sharia Law, And Will Have The First Sharia Court In The United States

By Theodore Shoebat

The state of Texas has accepted Sharia law. The city of Irving, Texas, will be the first to have an official Sharia court in the United States. I did a whole video on this:

According to the report (thanks to Right Scoop):

A group of Muslims in northern Texas has created what may be the first official Shariah law system in the United States.

The Shariah tribunal in Irving, Texas, is trying to assure Americans they’re not planning to follow the type of Shariah law practiced in Muslim countries.

In those places, severe punishments are common, women have very few rights, and blasphemy against Mohammed can result in a death sentence.

But tribunal judge Imam Moujahed Bakhach is denying that will happen in America.

“The misconception about what they see through the media is that Shariah means cut the head, chop the heads, cut the hands, and we are not in that,” he said. “We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin.”

This illustrates everything wrong with religious liberty. I would like to present to you an argument that I have made against religious liberty, taken from my upcoming book which will be the most exhaustive study ever written on Christian militancy…

Religious equality leads to the inequality of the Christian faith. Light is never identical to darkness, and so the attempt to force to the two to be equal is a support for the darkness to engulf the light. Since all false religions are equal in their error, they wish for all peoples to be equally plunged into deception, while the true religion is seen as a threat by the impious, and needing to be sought for persecution and destruction.

If we are to gauge the level of religious liberty on the basis of Christianity, then we are to heed to Scripture, in which there is no license to false religion, but authority granted to the only true Faith.

Absolute freedom is nonexistent within any body politic.

The question is, how do we determine which acts of religious beliefs are worthy of liberty, and which are meritorious of restraint?

Is there not built within man a natural urge to find God? Yes. But to which god? They are not all the same; thus absolute liberty can only be applied to the one objective God. The natural right to worship can be observed within the realm of venerating the true God Who created the natural order in which exists the desire to seek and to find Him.

In other words, to worship the Creator is in accordance with the natural order, and thus to worship any other god is contrary to the natural order–therefore, error has no right. (See Lefebvre, Religious Liberty Questioned, part 2, pp. 45-46)

For any Christian to deny this would be to implicitly affirm that the identity of the true God is subjective, and left to the judgments of the wavering opinions of man, and that has error has rights.

Liberty cannot be an end unto itself; it is what we do with, and how we protect, that liberty that matters. Liberty is the freedom to make a willing decision, but the object of this liberation must be righteous. The propagation of false religion is an indication of freedom, just as a disease is a proof that the body is functioning; that the immune system is working enough to send signals that it is fighting an illness. But this does not mean that we tolerate the disease, and merely complain about its symptoms, we must sever off the malady, just as we much drive away evil religion. (See Lefebvre, Religious Liberty Questioned, part 1, pp. 5-6)

“Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” (Glations 4:30) These are the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Galatians, and he is referring to Hagar — the bondwoman — and her son Ishmael, being driven out because the latter cannot be a heir with freewoman’s son –Isaac. This is symbolic of two different religions: one being true and bringing freedom, and the other being false and tyrannical. “So then, brethren,” writes St. Paul, “we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.” (Galatians 4:31)

Now, the historical context in which Paul is writing is very significant. His letter to the Galatians was dealing with the heretical judaizers who wanted to establish circumcision as necessary for salvation, and Paul is describing them as being of the bondwoman, or being after the flesh. And what is the result of this heresy? Despotism. Paul refers to these heretics as persecutors of the orthodox:

But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. (Galatians 4:29)

And what is the solution to this problem? St. Paul writes: “Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son”. So then, false religion brings despotism, and thus does not deserve liberation. The truth sets us free, and thus error brings us into tyranny. Error has no rights, thus tyranny deserves no liberty.

“But where is your love?” asks the modern. Those who desire not to partake in the crusade against evil for the sake of love, have no love in them. To love, is to help the oppressed and the downtrodden, and in doing so, the religion of the oppressors must be put an end, and the yokes which bound their victims broken. This love, which is of the purest form, is declared in Isaiah:

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward. (Isaiah 58:6-8)

Those who uphold error, will afflict and tyrannize those who fight and strive for the Truth. Error brings terror, and truth brings civilization. As we read in the Epistle of St. Barnabas, written at about the late first century or early second century, described the persecutors of the righteous as those involved in falsehood, paganism, witchcraft, absence of compassion for the oppressed, slayer of children, and other crimes and sins:

For it is the way of eternal death, with punishment, in which they that walk meet those things that destroy their own souls. Such are–idolatry, confidence, pride of power, hypocrisy, double-mindedness, adultery, murder, rapine, pride, transgression, deceit, malice, arrogance, witchcraft, covetousness, and the want of the fear of God. In this walk those who are the persecutors of them that are good–haters of truth, lovers of lies; who know not the reward of righteousness, nor cleave to anything that is good; who administer not righteous judgement to the widow and orphan; who watch for wickedness, and not for the fear of the Lord: from whom gentleness and patience are far off; who love vanity, and follow after rewards; having no compassion upon the poor; nor take any pains for such as are heavy laden and oppressed: ready to evil speaking, not knowing him that made him; murderers of children, corrupters of the creature of God, that turn away from the needy, oppress the afflicted; are the advocates of the rich, but unjust judges of the poor; being altogether sinners. (The Catholic Epistle of Barnabas, 20, trans. Wake)

It is no coincidence that those who are followers of false religions and evil practices, are placed in line with those who seek the blood of the righteousness and the innocent, especially children, for in this world one belief must rule, and the struggle is between good and evil, with evil continuously trying the obliterate the good, and evil always trying to vanquish the evil.

God liberated his people from the oppressions of Egypt, but did He then say, “now go out, live and let live, do what you want with your liberty as long you aren’t hurting anyone; go out and observe your individual desires”? No, God through the legislation of Moses, established certain laws which preserved the liberty of Israel by restraining the very ideologies which brought tyranny to the ancient Middle East. They came to liberty, but made sure that it was preserved by restraining ideas and beliefs that deserved restraint.

All people wish to have the liberty to follow their religions, but what do these religions entail? The liberty to observe violent rituals, to spread sedition, to corrupt the Church? To what end will this equality of religions result in? It will result in the death of liberty and triumph of despotism. That is why there is no concept of religious liberty in both Holy Scripture and Church tradition.

If all peoples became Christian, would that be beneficial? Of course, it would lead to self-governance under the divine law placed in our hearts, and in the common peace of man. Now, let us change the situation. If all peoples became Mormon, would that be beneficial? Any look into the history of the Latter-Day Saints tells us that the Mormon religion–with all of its violence, depravity, occultism, and the like–were to ever triumph, society would decay and be plunged into polygamy, the human sacrificial ritual of blood atonement, and a cruel tyranny under concupiscent men.

Christianity, on the other hand, neutralized these very practices and pacified the entire cult on account of the intolerance of numerous American people. Mormonism–regardless of the politeness of its followers–is not beneficial unto itself, while Christianity is.

The conferring to the people the absolute freedom to choose their rights and politicians, and their government, leads the state to fully becoming indifferent to the will and precepts of God, and dependent on the whims of the masses. Nonetheless, if it is allowed that the people plunge themselves into depravity, and become an occultic, paganistic, and heretical society, then the triumph of evil would be unstoppable. This is why the Church must be there; to keep in check the propagation of wicked doctrines. The failure to do so will lead, and has led, to an inevitable victory to tyranny.

There are three options that we must choose, what we decide determines ones inner conviction in fighting this great war with evil. Should evil never be tolerated? Should evil sometimes be tolerated? Or, should evil, sometimes, not be tolerated?

There are only three choices, and if one is a Christian, one must then choose the first of the three. If evil is to never be tolerated, then false religions–which are all inherently evil, being inventions of the devil–must never be permitted to exist and propagate.

Many may argue that this discourse is contrary to love, and that Christ replaced the laws against heresy with the ‘law of love.’ Our modern sense of the word love is as empty as the modern soul, and is as night and day in comparison to the Bible’s perspective on love. Christ did not replace the Law, but summarized it as love. When a certain lawyer asked Jesus on what is the great commandment in the law, He responded:

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy souls, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:36-40)

All the laws of God, according to Paul, are briefly comprehended in loving one’s neighbor:

Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Romans 13:9)

The Law of Moses, which outlaws heresy, is love; for Christ summarizes the entire Law as loving God and loving one’s neighbor. To hate heresy is to love God–since you are fighting the false doctrines which seek to replace God’s truth–and to love your neighbor, since you are being vigilant for his eternal soul, and for the preservation of civilization and for the prevention of tyranny.

Toleration of all religions–or more correctly, toleration of error–is an idea which was never accepted by the Church, and nor shall it ever be. We may argue that this sentiment is not love, but we cannot equate the modern perception of love with the Biblical view of love.

To God love is not accepting everyone as they are, falsehoods and all, but in part, punishing those who are evil to bring them away from error. This love is explicitly found in the Proverbs:

(He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chastenth him betimes.) (Proverbs 13:24)

If toleration of evil doctrines is Biblical, then why do the prophets, from Moses onward, call for the end of idolatry and afflict punishments on those who observe false religions? (Augustine, letter 173, trans. Sister Wilfrid Parsons, The Fathers of the Church, vol. 30)

St. Augustine, while rejecting the method of forced conversions, believed that the state had an obligation to prohibit and punish heresy as a measure to prevent the wicked ideas of heretical cults from coming into practice:

No one is indeed to be compelled to embrace the faith against his will; but by the severity, or one might rather say, by the mercy of God; but by the severity, or one might rather say, by the mercy of God, it is common for treachery to be chastised by the scourge of tribulation … for no one can do well unless he has deliberately chosen, and unless he has loved what is in free will; but the fear of punishment keeps the evil desire from escaping beyond the bounds of thought. (Augustine, in Edward Peters, Heresy and Authority in Medieval Europe, ch. i, intro to Compelle Intrare, p. 43)

In the time of St. Augustine, the Church was dealing with a most dangerous sect of heretics called the Donatists, founded by Donatus. They were schismatics who broke away from the Catholic Church, and believed with shameless pride that the true church was to be found in Africa alone. In doing this they became very insurrectionist, and like all heretics, tried to replace the Catholic Church. (Augustine, On the Treatment of the Donatists, chs. 1, 3, trans. Sister Wilfrid Parsons, The Fathers of the Church, vol. 30)

They held a fanatic belief in martyrdom, reminiscent to that of the Muslim. They would attack pagan idols simply to be killed by the pagans; they would willfully seek death unlike true Christian martyrs who simply accepted their end when it came. They would threaten armed men with death if they did not kill them.

If they could not find someone to spill their blood, they would jump off cliffs or drown or burn themselves alive. They burnt down homes, stabbed Christians with swords, beat men almost to death, and took others and tied them to millstones and afflicted them with blows. They would also a throw a liquid made up of vinegar and lime into the eyes of Christians to blind them. They took a bishop and severed off his hands and tongue, burnt down churches, threw Bibles into the flames, and even massacred Catholics. (Augustine, On the Treatment of the Donatists, chs. 12, 15, 18, 30; letter 88)

They sent a message to the Catholic Church which said, “Keep away from our flocks, if you do not want us to kill you.” (Augustine, letter 105, trans. Parsons) A Donatist named Restitutus of Victoriana joined the Catholic Church, and this incensed the Donatists so much that they dragged him from his home, beat him and imprisoned him. He was later freed when the Donatist bishop Proculeianus intervened since he knew that it would lead to trouble for his cult. (Augustine, letter 105) This is exactly the type of tyranny the Muslims want to do to Christians.

Another Donatist, Marcian of Urga, joined the Catholic Faith and had to go into hiding from fear of the demonic cult. The Donatists found out where he was hiding, beat him almost to death and then stoned him. For this crime the state burned down the homes of the criminals. Maximinus, a Donatist bishop, also left the cult and joined the Catholic Church, and so angered by this were the Donatist that they sent out this message:

If anyone remains in communion with Maximinus, his house will be burned down. (Augustine, letter 105)

Possidius, the Bishop of Calama, was attacked by the Donatists in the farm of Oliveta, and they “left him half-dead and tried to burn down the house from which we had escaped. They would have done it, too, if the tenants of that same farm had not three times put out the flames which endangered their own safety.” (Augustine, letter 105)

They attacked the Bishop of Bagai in his church, beat him with clubs and stabbed him in the groin. As they dragged his body, with a trail of blood following him, some dirt clogged the wound and stopped the bleeding, sustaining him from death. They dropped his body, and the Christians tried to carry him away. But anger seized the Donatists and they grabbed him again and drove the Christians away with viscousness and kicks.

They thought the Bishop was dead and so they tossed him into a tower. He landed on a soft surface, and was discovered in the evening by some good samaritans who rescued and brought him to a church where he was revived. The Bishop then requested from the Roman emperor that laws be passed to protect the Church from these heretics. (Augustine, On the Treatment of the Donatist, chs. 27-8)

The legislation was of course a policy of intoleration on the Donatists, and this was because, as Augustine observed, “when emperors pass laws favoring falsehood and opposing truth, staunch believers are tested [through persecution] and faithful champions are crowned [with martyrdom]; but, when they pass good laws favoring truth and opposing falsehood, the cruel extremists are constrained by fear and the intelligent are converted.” (Augustine, On the Treatment of the Donatist, ch. 8, brackets mine) When the Donatists began to protest the suppression against their cult, St. Augustine, in a letter written to them, said:

If you are angry with us because you are forced by the decrees of the emperors to rejoin us, you brought this on yourselves by stirring up violence and threats whenever we wished to preach the truth, and you tried to prevent anyone from listening to it in safety or choosing it voluntarily. (Augustine, letter 105)

From all of the violence that this cult cause, there is one thing that we can conclude: the Donatists, even though they cried out that they wanted freedom, did not themselves believe in freedom. If the Donatists were this violent as private citizens, we can only imagine how more brutal they would have been if they had controlled the whole government. From the example of the Donatists we can learn much on the nature and aspirations of dangerous cults: they aggressively strive for power until they have dominated every infrastructure of society — education, the arts, the government — and then they suffocate the whole population, until their beliefs become the generally accepted view, and the Christians are deemed worthy of death and tyranny.

If the Christian Roman state had the same mindset as the modern of today, the Donatists would continued further in their bloodshed. But thank goodness the emperors did not possess the tolerant sentiment, and most fortunately, they listened to St. Augustine who said to the Donatists:

If you, private citizens, so boldly and violently force men either to accept error or to remain in it, how much greater right and duty have we to resist your outrages by means of the lawfully constituted authority, which God has made subject to Christ, according to His prophecy, and so to rescue unfortunate souls from your tyranny, to free them from long-continued false teaching and let them breathe the clear air of truth! (Augustine, letter 105)

Those who preach falsehoods and heresies work arduously for Orthodox Christians to accept their evils, but error has no rights and does not deserve liberty, and so it deserves to be abolished through the force of the state.

If heretics, or the haters of Christianity, are given power, or a position of dominance, they will persecute the Christians just as Cain killed Abel.

It is not the Church which executes these laws, but the state. Therefore it is not for us, as the Church, to become a mob and attack our enemies, but for the government to enact law to protect the Church. Governments do a great mercy to prevent dangerous cults and antichrist sects from prevailing, for to do so prevents the wicked from persecuting Christians, and also from infiltrating the government and using the state to implement tyranny.

This is exactly what we are seeing today, with Muslims and Leftists within the government trying to enact decrees in support of terrorism and socialism.

Some may argue that Christ or the Apostles did not believe in this, but this is because there were no emperors who believed in Christ in those times, and so they would not have enacted laws in favor of the Church. When the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt, and were being persecuted under the Pharaoh, did they declare wars against heathens, or establish jurisprudence outlawing heresy or paganism? No, because they did not have the enabling of, nor the influence over the government, to do so.

As soon as they gained their freedom from the oppressions of Egypt, and when they had Moses as their political leader, then they began to observe the Divine Law and launch holy wars. The same can be said for Christian history; the Christians were heavily persecuted by the Roman government, and so had no state to govern. As soon as the Christians took over the empire, then they began to enact the laws of God and commence crusades and holy wars. To isolate Christianity to just the New Testament writings, is like isolating Israel to only the times of its enslavement under Egypt.

Christianity does not end at the New Testament, but continues on, alive and vigorous, and continuously expounding upon holy and inspired prose of the Apostles and the Disciples. The observing of Christian laws do not necessarily need to be observed solely under a purely Biblical government, but also in pagan states through the influence of Christianity.

When the Hebrews were under the neo-Babylonian kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar, did they declare war against the pagan king, or attempt to enforce Mosaic law on him because he subscribed to a false religion? No, but when the miracle of Hebrews–Shadrach, Mishach, and Abednego–surviving the great furnace, influenced him, he established this decree:

“Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s words, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Therefore I make a decree, that every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, and Meshach, and Abedego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.” *Daniel 3:28-29*

Did Daniel, or any other Hebrew within the government, object or reprove the king? God did not want Sidrach, Misach, and Abednego to obey the decree of Babylon and worship the golden image, but God did not have a problem with Nebuchadnezzar issuing a law of intolerance against the haters of Him. (Augustine, On the Treatment of the Donatist, ch. 8)

This is just one section that I have on the dangers and evils of religious liberty from my upcoming book on Christian militancy.

    I think it’s time for the Templar Order to be revived. I have no idea how to join in, even though I saw a website for a Templar Order in the United States, but I was a bit suspicious.

    • Eric

      Trevor, this is all do to lazy Christians. Everything that has been going on is due the fact that Christians sit on their butts and do nothing. My Mom has said it, Dr. Charles Stanley has said it, Billy Graham has said it–the way things are now is all our fault. We’ve gotten comfortable, content, and would rather have our comfort than step on people’s toes. We complain about the government, how immoral it its. Well, if Christians would get up and the Church would collectively say “Hey, fix yourselves, or we’re going to come in and fix it ourselves!”; if the church and christains in general simply stood up and said, “We don’t want homosexuality in our culture! One man, one woman, that’s how God made it, that’s how it is, homosexuality is wrong, end of discussion!” it would be over. Same with Atheism: “We don’t want this in our culture and our schools! Throw it out!”

      The Church has lost its zeal and passion. When I think of our predecessors, the Pilgrims and the Founders, the Early Americans wouldn’t stand for all this crap. My God, if one of those hideous “Gay Pride” Parades was held back in the day, you would see a huge riot of enraged Christians, and I have a feeling it would get into physical fighting. Same if someone was teaching in school that we came from monkeys. You wouldn’t hear the end of it until the teacher was physically chased from town.

      Christians would rather sit and complain and pray without doing any action. Prayer without action is useless. We look at the top, the government for answers. When in truth, you won’t find change unless you start from the bottom up. Like Ma always says, “It starts in the home.” Ted has also echoed this point numerous times. It starts with us, with individual people. If we want results, we’re going to have to quit complaining, get off our lazy assess, and get work done!

        Was this directed at me?

        • Eric

          Trevor, I was sort of starting a conversation here; I sometimes respond to people by offering my thoughts on said situation. I replied to you as a starting point. 🙂

          • Trevor

            Ok. I took it as you were calling me a lazy Christian, but I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t directed at me.

            I think the problem lies not with just lazy Christians, which is far too broad, but with leadership, education (how many seminars are now becoming liberal, throwing away sound doctrine?), and embracing the world (becoming friend with the world).

            My old pastor who was a farm boy from Oklahoma, would have a conniption if he was still preaching.

          • Eric

            You lazy? Goodness no! Trevor, I’m so sorry if that’s how it sounded! You’re the exact opposite!

            And secondly, you’re right on all accounts. 🙂

          • Trevor

            I feel better now. I guess it was how it came across to me.

            I’m actually in-between church, if such thing is possible, because of my deep disappointment with how the evangelical church has embraced deceiving doctrine in the last few years.

            Trying to work up the courage to check out a Catholic congregation near my home.

          • Eric

            Don’t get discouraged, Trevor. Pray, and ask God to lead you in the right direction. Keep searching, and don’t give up! 🙂

      • pegstermm

        yes ive seen churches start out with zeal and then turn into country clubs that only help themselves. I used to be a missionary and never sat on my ass. there was always plenty to do to minister to the community. I used to run a café and ran commercial kitchens and assisted with food banks in the area. others just want to sip a latte and sit in their ivory towers. that’s why I don’t go to church anymore.

        • Eric

          That’s very sad, Pegstermm. Hopefully, the church in general will get some fire under its butt soon enough.

      • Faylene Marie Gostanian-Whalin

        Christians? Why not Red Blooded Americans getting up off their asses and doing something no matter of religion? There is a rumbling of unrest in the undercurrents of our country. An uprising from those that nobody sees is coming and soon.

        • Eric

          Faylene, I meant in general. Of course there is unrest in America right now. I wasn’t excluding non-Christians, but just used them as an example.

      • I think one has to recognize that bible believing Christians are not in the majority but a minority and that all our institutions , educational and judicial etc have been high-jacked by liberals and unbelievers . We in the west live in days of great apostasy . The God-less, liberal , so-called Christianity , is as wicked as the pagans around them and in some cases worse . Remain faithful , oh little church during these times of testing .

        • Eric

          You’re right, Jeff. An excellent point. I’m amazed this comment of mine is still getting replies two months after it’s post! lol. But anyway, you’re right on-point with your analysis.

      • Luana Valerius

        I agree 100 % with you,but we have too many politically correct people in this country.We can’t do or say anything anymore because we have no backup.Look at what they did to the couple that owned the bake shop and refused to bake the cake for that gay couple,the court shut them down and fined them 150,000 dollars.What about the deli owner in Vermont,he had to take his bacon sign down because it offended this muslim woman. Don’t you see we’re out numbered,and when we try to take a stand we get shut down. I’m going to start packing a gun,and the first one that tries to tell me what to do or how to do it is going to get capped.

        • Eric

          Luana, you’re exactly right. I do think we have numbers, but the problem is, not enough do anything to make a difference, sadly. And yes: PACK A GUN! That’s SO IMPORTANT in this day in age. You seem to be aware and on top of things! God Bless!

    Lost my respect completely by your statements about Mormons. It shows how little you know about the main LDS Church. The things you refer to would be more common place in offshoots of the main Church. You don’t go into detail or give examples, just make a few statements and then went unto something else, very sad.

  • susan

    Thanks for showing us the boxer from down under:-) I can hardly wait to order your new book. We certainly do need it. What a time of limp wisted, comfort first, luke warm preaching is what passes for biblical teaching today. We need FIRE from our pulpits! I watched the video of the street preachers on the streets of Deerborn Michigan with fascination. As they were being stoned you could visibly see the rocks bouncing off of the preachers and back onto the crowds. WOW! It appears these true Christians already have their new bodies and were protected by angels! I was shocked to hear of sharia tribunals in Irving Texas. We have to put a stop to this. Are there any partition drives in place? Any phone calls we can make? This is setting a dangerous presidence. If we allow this I can promise you it won’t be a case of live and let live. It will be a case of live and let die.. slowly but surely..

    Thanks again Ted!!!!

  • drwills777

    What I find troubling in this article – in addition to the idea of Shariah law in the US, is the Author’s views involving religious liberty. In the main, it seems that Theodore Shoebat’s policy recommendations are not essentially different from those which many Muslims seek to impose upon subjugated populations, that is to say, Shoebat wants ‘religious liberty’ for Christians ONLY. I am a Christian pastor. There is a vital difference between punishing “evil doers” (which Scripture commands of civil government), and ‘evil thinkers’ – whose judgment is strictly the prerogative of God alone. Shoebat’s strategy for curtailing (or eliminating) false religions, moreover, is not essentially different from that of jihadists, namely: Shoebat acknowledges that strength-in-numbers is necessary in order to achieve political (and by implication, military) supremacy. I find Shoebat’s arguments very disconcerting, as his ill-formed opinions misrepresent a mature understanding of the Bible’s teachings; as well as his stated views doubtless tend to portray Christianity in a very threatening light, from the perspective of unbelievers. If the task of subduing the nations were a Biblical mandate, then, what does the Second Coming of Christ mean? Why would it be necessary for Christ to come with the armies of Heaven, if the Church on earth were ever capable – or had any such duty – to achieve world dominion?

  • richinnameonly

    I agree that when you legally try to enforce a state of complete freedom there will be people going down the wrong path and impacting society with the evil they practiced through their freedom. Lots of decisions to make. Thank God (literally) a big decision will be made relatively soon.

    I remember that saying, Sister E! I grew up studying Latin, and that was one of the sayings we memorized.

  • Eric

    Sam, thank you. I often see other Christians complain about things–the actions the government takes and so on–yet all they do is sit there and go “Oh I’ll just pray about it.” They accept God to do everything while they sit on their butts! Aren’t we supposed to be His Hands and Feet? Well, that would mean taking literal physical action. Prayer is great, but as Paul says, “Faith without deeds is dead” or something to that effect.

  • Eric

    Political correctness is a poison that manages to suffocate a society before they know it. Indeed, Chet, the church has become weak as a whole–fortunately, my church and pastor are strong–and would rather get along with the world than change it. Liberalism and true church doctrine are not compatible. Freedom and Liberty come from God; but they do not mean that we are free to do as we please, whatever we desire. The modern mind has warped such terms to mean such. Absolute freedom isn’t freedom, but rather chaos.

    I am reading and hearing about a certain Christian order…..don’t want to say more because it might not be for real…………..

    But we have to have faith that the internet…which Obama wants to control in the near future…

    The internet has already done its job in bringing out the truth about Islam…more and more are reading into its terrible history…people are finding out…and the Muslim Brotherhood at the White House…

    The martyrs are at the altar of God interceding for us…every innocent death cries out to God for justice…every death is working on the souls of the good to have faith, be courageous and rise up to erase and make illegal the House of War.

    • Trevor

      Would that be the revival of the Templar Order? I hope so because I would like to join one.

      • Julie

        No…

        For now…ask Mary to pray with you to magnify your prayers to the Lord…the rosary and penance and Mary’s intercession won the Battle of Lepanto..when the Turks had taken over Anatolia and made it Muslim.

        The rosary chains Satan.

  • Eric

    Thanks, Dan. 🙂

    What is the reason that the State Of Texas is allowing this foolishness to continue? Does the lawmakers there want this Godless foolishness to continue?

  • David

    rumplestilskin: It’s “dyed in the wool”. Since you can’t spell properly, i must question your thought process. I can only hope the rest of your “died in the wool” liberal buddies are as dumb as you. We won’t have much trouble removing your kind from the equation, the final solution. Learn a little about Germany in the 1930’s. I have a feeling guy’s like you will be the first to be exterminated. Traitors like yourself are always the first to go. Have a nice trip.

  • Humble Man

    Nope.

    Saying that homossexualism is wrong is not equivalent to say that homossexuals should be killed, wich IS what The sharia law commands.

    You are being desonest with such unfair accusation.

  • Eric

    Thanks for the correction. 🙂

  • Eric

    Daisy, all of us have different methods of fighting the good fight, and working. Trust me, I can’t do much now but pray either since I’m a poor college student. I’m glad I could encourage you. God will show you what to do. Pray in ernest, and I’m sure God will give you an answer. Even little things are worthwhile.

    Blessings. 🙂

  • Ray jones

    all you texans its time to play cowboys and muslims

  • Eric

    Yep. You’ve got it right, slhancok. The idea that Christians nor the church should not involved in politics or the government is a big lie. I’ve heard many Christians say, “Oh well the government and politics are of the world, and we’re told not to be part of the world and we’re part of Christ’s kingdom anyway”. But that’s just an excuse to be lazy and sit there and do nothing. It’s mind-blowing.

  • Eric

    Then I have yours too! 🙂

  • Eric

    Right, Sam! ANY actions that we take to fight are worthwhile!

  • Eric

    Thank you Alfred. 🙂 I’ll do my best!

  • Eric

    John,

    I have written a 107-page essay on the Homosexual Agenda. I suggest that we do our utter best to get the word out, any way that we can. We all have different talents and gifts. In my case, I have a few physical disabilities and limitations that I have to deal with, but I can write very well. So, I compiled my six years of research on the subject. I’m currently in the process of editing the work.

    My advice in general is to look at the talents we each have, and effectively work in those areas to get the word out. We’ve all been given different ways to do so. If we each play our part, we’ll see results. The government as of now as shown that it doesn’t care what we think. Thus, it is up to us, individually, to make a difference.

  • Eric

    Paul, I believe it isn’t too late for a restoration. I’m an optimist, and perhaps what I see is different from those of older generations. since I’m viewing things as a young man. Sometimes, restoration will only occur once we’ve hit rock-bottom. I don’t believe God’s abandoned us yet. The question we should ask is: “Have we Abandoned God?”

  • Eric

    Thanks, Arthur! And you’re completely right!

  • Eric

    You’re completely correct, Truth.

  • Eric

    Good for the mayor!

  • Jeff J

    This article is quite incorrect. See attached link to article about law forbidding Sharia Court in Irvine, TX http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/muslims-are-angry-at-texas-mayor-after-she-stops-sharia-court-here-is-her-epic-response/

    FALSE STORY

  • Twocats58
  • Trevor

    Problem is…the Catholic Church and South Baptist Conference forbid their members to be part of the Freemasons. And if I am not mistaken, the Freemasons are riddled with paganism.

  • Eric

    You’re more than welcome, Jeff. It would be a very dark cloud indeed without knowing and having hope in Christ. And you are right again: God does indeed use darkness to help His light shine brighter, as much as Satan and the forces of evil despise it. God uses evil for good. God Bless you. 🙂

  • Eric

    🙂 and secondly, welcome to the website. Hope to see more of you. 🙂

  • Eric

    Pretty much, Gary. The thing is, on one hand, I hear people blame themselves, yet they don’t do anything about it, then you have the people who want other people to do the work for them? The result? The bad-guys take over.

  • Trevor

    Okay.

    The Templar Order were mighty men in battle who take vow of property and take it seriously. They are the first and last to leave in battle. Their reputation of being fericorious in battle had them also becoming guardians of treasury as pilgrims travelled. With their reputation, their power grew until envy by a wicked French King led to abolishment of the order.

    Today, they go by different names. They can be seen in the United States Marines Corps, just about every elite fighting units in the world that is not aligned with Satan. Their code of conduct and creed inspired the Green Berets, US Army Rangers, etc.

  • Eric

    God Bless you as well. Thanks for the thoughtful reply. 🙂

  • DaisyJane

    With all that concerns the people who post,our prayers, and sharing our love of Christ…Rachell, trolling to find grammar errors…are you serious?

  • DaisyJane

    Rachell, get a grip! You aren’t taken very seriously if you can’t read to get the message, and grammar errors appear to irk you! Praying for you to overlook what offends you that is so minor, and you grasp what the messages and posts are all about, unless that is a hobby of yours to feel superior. Stop! Put some fruit into your posts by staying on topic and adding to the discussion. It would be nice to get to know you.

  • Eric

    Thank you, Maureen. My plan, is simply this: people have to get more involved, more aware. Each of us needs to do what we can do. Specific steps I can’t exactly say, but I’d think that of people could try and be a bit less selfish and self-absorbed in general, that would be a start. We need to get more involved, and get more active. I’m honored that this comment is still getting replies five months later.

  • Linda Geer

    I truly wish I knew what to do, I feel so useless. Everybody I try to witness to which are strangers to me, say they are saved. There are times I just want to go to the highest mountain and shout people wake up Jesus is coming. But what good would that do when nobody seems to be listening. Look I’m all gamed to do whatever I can to make a difference, if anybody has any idea. please let me know. Your sister in Christ

  • Eric

    Thanks, Linda!

  • dalart

    This is a lie. TEXAS HAS NOT ACCEPRED ANY SUCH THING….

  • Burnetta

    You are a idiot. No law is above Gods laws. Its just everyone has a different God they want to follow. Thats where the Constitution comes in. Islamic laws subject people to cruel punishments takes away their god given rights, and cannot be higher than the law of the land. If they want to live by islamic laws they should go back to where bozos think its right. Also your take on “Mormons” is very off . They believe and follow the teachings of Christ. love one another, uplift one another. Live the laws of the land .of course when agenda 21 and the soon to be 2030 they will stand for the original Constiution as it was intened.

  • Eric

    Charles, you raise many interesting points. I’m not saying ALL Christians are lazy. Some are, however, and a decent-sized portion. I suppose that was a mistake on my part for not clarifying. I’m amazed this comment of mine is still getting comments all these months later! God bless. 🙂

  • Eric

    Keith, I wouldn’t give up on us just yet. Although I do believe Chastisement is coming, I don’t think destruction is. We’ll be corrected, of course, but not destroyed.

    I am amazed that this post of mine is still getting replies eight months later. It’s blowing my mind.

  • Eric

    I do what I can, Billy. Like you said, it’s going to take all of us individually.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Do you have ANY ties to the Church that Christ built? NO YOU DON”T. Why did your false church preach, condone, and proscribe POLYGAMY? That ONE issue should be enough for you to know that it is FALSE- why does “The Church Handbook of Instructions”, approved Sept 1998, allow abortion? Do you believe that God was first a man before ‘becoming’ God?

  • was it not you’re false prophet who said that he would be a second Mahomet to this generation, and that he would make it one’ gore of blood from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean; that like Mahomet, whose motto in treating for peace was, ‘the Alcoran or the sword,’ so should it be eventually with us: ‘Joseph Smith or the sword.'”?

    Who are you peddling your wares to? I have debated your top apologist Martin Tanner and crushed him on this one:

    http://shoebat.com/2013/06/10/glenn-beck-converts-to-chrislam/

    Your top apologist had to admit that Muhammad, the false prophet of Islam was a true prophet from God since he could not dispute that Joseph Smith honored the polygamist Muhammad.

    Do me a favor and go sell your Mormon wares somewhere else.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Then Jesus is not the Lord of the LDS – he specifically DENIED to be married more than ONCE. I don’t need to visit your false institutions website – it is full of abominations – and you are no Christian when you don’t abide by CHRIST’S words AND CHRIST’S CHURCH.

  • Hey, you want to be someone’s third wife, have at it, I will not censor your wedding party. And if you think you can convert the La-Brick above, in your’e wildest dreams. As I said we debated your top Mormon apologist Martin Tanner and he got his butt whipped by my kid. Joseph Smith is an adulterer son of satan. He said “I am the second Muhammad …”

    Now, here is my question, is Muhammad a PROPHET of God?

    Just a simple Yes or No. Please no explanations. Just a YES or a NO.

    P.S: either way you answer, your false polygamist prophet is doomed.

  • What a bunch of Judas style questions. Here let me show you Jesus style questions lady. Do you have an apostolic-succession all the way to the apostles?If so, show us.

    Did your prophet Joseph Smith proclaim Muhammad as the prophet of Allah?
