If only Jesus and His Apostles had thought of this “tell ‘em what they want to hear” message it would have saved them bloody deaths. “Muslim singer-songwriter performs for Oak Lawn elementary school,” begins this puff piece from DailySouthtown.com cited below by Apprising Ministries:
Musician Dawud Wharnsby believes everyone has their own way of making a difference in the world.
“Some people are able to donate their money to good causes; some people are able to donate their time,” he said. “For me, music and expression through song has always been the tool that I use.”
And sure enough the audience picked right up on this “message of peace” as being the typical banal bletherings of the universal mush god of human design:
“Music can really reach your heart. You can feel it in your soul. It doesn’t matter what God you believe in or what church you belong to”… I felt the spirituality in the man…[because] a positive message is more important than the religion it comes from. [hello Joel Osteen] “It’s not about religion; it’s about a message of peace,” [an audience member] said. “My children can make their own choice on religion, but I definitely want God in their lives.” (ibid.)
Really; and just which god will they believe in? No doubt the “god” of positive peace who lets you do whatever you feel is right in your heart – Every man’s way is right in his own eyes (Proverbs 21:2). Let’s get this straight once and for all, the god of Islam is absolutely not the one true and living God of the Bible.
Not only that but the Quran calls “pagans” those of us Christians who believe in the Triune nature of God and that Christ Jesus (the Messiah) is God Himself in human flesh:
Pagans indeed are those who say that GOD is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah himself said, “O Children of Israel, you shall worship GOD; my Lord and your Lord.” Anyone who sets up any idol beside GOD, GOD has forbidden Paradise for him, and his destiny is Hell. The wicked have no helpers.
Pagans indeed are those who say that GOD is a third of a trinity. There is no god except the one god. Unless they refrain from saying this, those who disbelieve among them will incur a painful retribution. (Surah 5:72-73)
