Islam hates Jesus because the god of Islam is the father of lies
Islam is the religion of the antichrist because it is the only religion that denies Jesus’ divnity as part of its formal doctrine, and as St. John writes in his first letters, “Who is the antichrist but he who denies the Father and the Son?” (1 John 2:22). Just like the one who created Islam and gave the idea to Muhammad, Islam hates Christ and the cross because it is a sign of victory over sin, death, and the evil one. Since he cannot hurt God, he tries to hurt everything that reminds him of God, and his ministers in the form of the followers of Islam faithfully execute this command.
Here in Italy we have an example of this. A Muslim went into a Church and for no apparent reason attacked a large crucifix violently and caused severe damage, and he tried to attack the altar as well:
“It’s wrong. It’s all wrong,” he kept repeating the young Muslims that this morning has created havoc in the church of St. Jeremiah , in Cannaregio, Venice (the same one that houses the relics of Saint Lucia).
The man had been reported outside the church a little ‘revved up: Then, entering the place of worship, began to freak out. In a video spread online, the guardian tells what happened, shocked: “He tried to cross the main altar of the church. He said that ‘something was wrong'”.
“I asked him to explain what he meant by ‘wrong’, I could not understand – said the caretaker -. And he approached the crucified – a work of 1700 – and began to shake violently. Then I asked him: ‘ you Muslim? ‘. he answered yes and started to give the sacred image thrusts. he wanted to hurl it to the ground at all costs. ” In the end, the crucifix fell to the ground before the keeper could stop the man: “With the help of some of the faithful, I was able to counter them and keep him from further damage.” The young man would later be taken into custody by the police, immediately rushed to the scene of the crime.
The crucifix has experienced damage vast – an arm came loose from the body – and it will need heavy renovation work.
This Church is also home of the relics of St. Lucia, an early Christian martyr who had her eyes ripped out by emperor Diocletian, and is often portrayed in art and statues with her eyes on a plate:
I have two prayers for this incident on account of this Church’s connection with St. Lucia. First, is that the demon-possessed Muslim man would come to see and know Christ, for his sake, and second, that Christians would see the evil that Islam is for what it is and deal with it accordingly.
