Pure Evil

Some people claim that God was created in man’s image and likeness. I tend to find this point of view insulting and bordering on the blasphemous—in most cases. However, when bipedal life forms (I hesitate to refer to them as people or humans) slaughter innocent people, screaming “God is great” I think that they’ve attempted to create a god in a likeness that suits them.

I wouldn’t normally speak for God, but I truly believe that if I were the one doing the screaming and killing, I would not be greeted in the next world with, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I suspect that those responsible for all the death and destruction in pursuit of an Islamic caliphate are in for an unpleasant surprise when they leave this world. Seventy-two virgins? Really? This from a group who believes that rape is a form of prayer. Not just a loophole, but actually prayer.

And what do they expect to accomplish with all their violence? When they attacked Paris, did they believe that the French would roll over and play dead? Do they believe that with enough senseless violence people will be inclined to embrace sharia?

That by killing a planeload of Russian tourists Vladimir Putin will be swayed? Have they ever even read a newspaper story about Putin? Former KGB. Never voted Mr. Congeniality. Not real particular about following international law. Personally I believe he’s “mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore.” Might not have been ISIS’s smartest move.

Bottom line? These wackheads have merely managed to get a whole lot of people pissed off.

And God just might be one of them,

One response to “Pure Evil

  1. Steve, for years historians have looked negatively on the Crusades–as if Christians arbitrarily went out and slaughtered Muslims. Today, I believe, we are seeing history repeat itself–and perhaps will reveal the truth about WHO did what, and HOW things happened. This is about man…the “problems of man,” and “man as the problem.”

    History is replete of men who would be gods, but only one man who would be God, Jesus Christ. We must not get angry, rather pray and become stronger and more resolved aware. Islam is a religion in which their God requires them to send sons and daughters to die for it. Christianity, on the other hand, is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for us.

    Moreover, martyrdom has always been a proof of the intensity–never of the correctness–of a belief. So, we know from history at least two things. One is intimidation and terrorism is the weapon of the weak. And secondly, we defeated radical Islam before and we can remain faithful we will defeat them again…and perhaps this time…definitively and forever.
