Muslim religious leader argues that girls as young as 9 could marry.

 

Seems the life of religious leaders pushing the envelope of pedophilia has no boundaries. One day it is “Christian” religious compounds in Texas with older men being “allowed” to marry young children the next its catholic leaders being accused of molestation.

 

Just when you thought so called Christian leaders were terrible people, along comes a Muslim leader out of Morocco teaching that young girls under the age of ten can marry.

What is next? Maybe tomorrow we will see Jewish rabbis pushing child porn or Buddhist monks pimping pre-teens?

 

No wonder more and more people turn from faith. These people are supposed to be moral leaders of the community. But who am I kidding? People have high jacked the faithful for centuries in the name of religion. They have pushed wars, suicide, murder and now pedophilia.

 

When will disgusting people stop trampling someone else’s core beliefs? Stop destroying what is supposed to be peaceful. Stop pushing people to be morally corrupt and at the same time condemning your neighbors sins.

 

My message to these people, if you find yourself doing these things…please find a new line of work. Fix yourself before trying to fix others.

 

My suggestion is to not assume the person at the pulpit is morally greater than you. Read and learn on your own and then listen and judge what they say. If it is contrary to a large degree from what you read…maybe its time to pack up your family and find another spiritual counselor. If you can find no one….maybe this truly is the end times.

Proverbs tells us that, “there is a way that seems right to a man but its end is death thereof.”

 

Imagine sitting at a breakfast table one day in the future. You are older and have lived a full life. Your kids have grown and are thoughtful, successful people. You have done a great job as a parent. Your finances are in order and everything is set.

 

Suddenly, inevitably your time has come. You die quietly and peacefully just the way we all hope to go…peacefully. You are not worried. After all you have led a good life.

 

Suddenly you see a door open into your mind as you slip into the beyond. There at the door is Christ. Without him saying a word you suddenly realize that life was very short and most importantly you missed doing something that was your reason for living.

 

You failed to learn of and about God. No, you didn’t need to be a nun or pastor. You did not have to be pope. You only had to learn about your God. You failed to strengthen and build your own soul. Going to church every Sunday to praise him is not enough.

 

Life was so short and the task you missed was such a simple task. How could you have missed it? You thought you were a good person but you failed to even learn about the God you professed your whole life to believe in.

 

It is not too late to avoid this scenario. You are not gone yet. There are so many passages in the bible to guide us. In the New Testament it was shown to us that we must believe in Jesus to be saved. We must have faith. The one point we sometimes forget is…what is it or who is it that we are to believe in?

 

Jesus stated that many will call him Lord but he never knew them. Could it be that is because they never knew Him? How can you truly believe in someone if you never take the time to learn about whom it is you believe in?

 

Pick up that dusty bible and read. Diligently read a chapter here and there. Don’t just read it but learn the meaning and grasp it. A little at a time and soon you WILL know Him and he WILL know you.

Offshoot churches destroying Christianity

Recently a church leader named Tony Alamo came under allegations of arranging child marriages. This isn’t the first time Tony Alamo has had problems with the law. When his wife died of cancer, Alamo claimed she would be resurrected and kept her body on display for six months while their followers prayed. He also went to prison for tax evasion.

For years self appointed preachers have distorted truth and interpreted the bible to fit their own twisted ideas. Sure, throughout history every religion has had its share of people abusing the beliefs of others to fit their own agenda but there seems to be a surge in the United States in recent decades. All this has led to Christianity being mocked by many.

In the New Testament it states that in the end there will be many “anti-Christ”. I believe that these self professed and often confused “preachers” are, in many respects, anti-Christ. You see, an anti-Christ twist the truth to deceive others and to lead many away from the truth. Isn’t that exactly what preachers like Tony Alamo are doing?

In a recent interview of Tony Alamo I heard him state that many old testament leaders had many wives. He used this to justify polygamy. I would think someone who professed to be a preacher for over 40 years would know the facts. There are many writings in the New Testament to dispute his teaching. For example… “Tit 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly“.

Sure that is a small point but lets look at the big picture. He claims to be a Jew….his church is the “Tony Alamo Christian Church”…he follows many teachings of the Old Testament. Yes, the Old Testament does have wonderful teachings but Jesus taught a “New Testament”. I would not know first hand but I would guess his followers are a confused lot. Unfortunately, I am sure they don’t even realize this.

Whenever someone like Tony Alamo high jacks a pulpit, Christianity takes another hit and another mocking joke is born. This further drives away those that may otherwise have joined the faith.
