Love Your Enemies
SamuelBB7 said, "Muhammed is a false prophet. But he also spoke of not murdering Jews and those Christians who would live at peace.
But the Christians and Jews have to pay the Jizya (a tax) that is levied on all non-Muslims living in the Muslim states.
"Terrorists groups don't let their followers read Quran. They don't want them to see what it actually says."
While Islam bills itself as a religion of peace, and the Koran itself teaches against violence, most jihadists are careful that they DO read the Koran, or parts of it, every day.

Nicole, pay attention. FOLLOW THE WHITE BOUNCING BALL.
You all INVITE demonic activity because you practice Idolotry, heathenism, worship and kissing relics and pray to the dead...scripture clearly says is demonic. Just because you hide behind pretending you casting out demons doesn't mean you do.
That you have encountered demons no one is questioning...because YOU invite them.

//There is so much demon possession and exorcism in the RCC because YOU ALL INVITE DEMONIC ACTIVITY.//
Do you know WHO you sound like?
V24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.
//The sad part is Nicole, you can't see the difference.
---kathr4453 on 2/27/17
So according to your logic all Protestant Pastors casting AWAY demons are because they invite them?
Intive them to tell them to go away???
It didn't work in Jesus' time it won't TODAY.

//He was speaking about groups, not individuals.--NurseRobert on 2/28/17
I read the article which the Pope states there are Fundamentalist extremist in every religion.
That is a generalized statement as you said.
But if one would ask the Pope WHICH religion has the MOST terrorists today he could not deny the answer is Muslims.
Is all in how you ask the question or phrase a statement.
remember Pope Benedict XVI answered that question when asked directly.
Maybe only 10% of Muslims or Terrorists, but I ALSO can say 99.9% all terrorists are Muslims.
BTW, even Pope Francis will apologize to the Buddhists because I don't even think he thinks they were ever violent.

Cite where Pope said that

OCCASION OF THE WORLD MEETINGS OF POPULAR MOVEMENTS
IN MODESTO (CALIFORNIA) [16-18 FEBRUARY 2017] (10 FEBRUARY 2017) Pope Francis indeed said Muslim terrorism does not exist, however, this was taken grossly out of context.
The full quote is "no people is criminal and no religion is terrorist. Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist. No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent." He was speaking about groups, not individuals.
And for my friend Nicole_Lacy who loves proof, google

Sam: "Jerry You are incorrect about what the Pope said."
Wherein? I don't recall quoting him lately.
You are wrong about Muslims, and I did not quote the Koran out of context. Allah is not Jehovah. Jesus did not teach forced evangelism and murder of unbelievers. Islam is not the religion of peace!
---Jerry6593 on 2/26/17|
Jerry You are incorrect about what the Pope said.
Like the Bible many quote passages from the Quran out of context.
If memory serves me he is speaking about a group who were trying to murder them.
Muhammed is a false prophet. But he also spoke of not murdering Jews and those Christians who would live at peace.
Terrorists groups don't let their followers read Quran. They don't want them to see what it actually says.
A tactic we know from History used by others.
Anll those in Muslim controlled lands are taught that all who say they are Christians are Roman Catholic. Did you read in the Review about the Muslims who saved some of our Church members by risking their lives?
---Samuelbb7 on 2/25/17|
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies," we have in Psalm 23:5. So, yes our Heavenly Father can share His own table with us, right in the presence of any enemies, at all. So, I would not limit this to Muslims.
There are Christian women who live with Muslims, I would say. And Peter says how the example of Christian wives can win a disobedient husband > 1 Peter 3:1-4. Jesus died with hope for any evil person, at all, and good example can win any evil person to Jesus.

//It just goes to show you how much you know about your pope.--Steveng
I have caught you lying on the Pope many times before on CN.
//The Pope reiterated his convictions about muslims and the ecological crises from past writings and speeches to a world meeting of populist movements on February 17. His speech can be found on the official Vatican website.//
It's ISN'T there. You left out the year.
Only Speech he made is WHEN HE LEFT THE VATICAN:
**Pope Francis delivers his speech during his visit at the Roma Tre University in Rome, Friday, Feb. 17, 2017.--ABC NEWS.
No world leaders at the Vatican on February 17th.
Why lie on CN of all places?
Don't you FEAR GOD?
---Nicole_Lacey on 2/24/17|
Nicole, It just goes to show you how much you know about your pope.
The Pope reiterated his convictions about muslims and the ecological crises from past writings and speeches to a world meeting of populist movements on February 17. His speech can be found on the official Vatican website.
And he continues to advocate for a one world government.
During his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope in May of 2013, Francis made it very clear that he believes that Christians and Muslims both worship the same God.
---Steveng on 2/23/17|
//Pope Francis said "muslim terrorism does not exist."//
You make so many false statements it's become your title.
Cite where Pope said that since you put quotation marks around the words without citation.
As if the quotation marks makes it believable.
//He also said that global warming is an extreme danger to humanity,//
//islamic prayers at the Vatican,//
Are you speaking about the time when he had World Religious Leaders with him and they asked for time to pray?
WHAT, you expect him to tell them to go PRAY OUTSIDE?
//calls for a new global political authority, believed in evolution, etc. Your thoughts?---Steveng
YOU LIKE TO START ARGUMENTS OFF OF LIES
---Nicole_Lacey on 2/23/17|
Steve: It doesn't seem like this Pope is a man of God, does it? He also holds fundamentally Communist beliefs.
Good Muslims (those loyal to the Qur'an) believe:
Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them. Qur'an 2:191
Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood. Qur'an 9:123
When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you find them. Qur'an 9:30
The Jews and the Christians are perverts,. Qur'an 9:5
Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable. Qur'an 3:85
The Jews are called in the Quran as the progeny of apes and pigs.
---Jerry6593 on 2/21/17|
In the case of Pope Francis, I do not believe these are the deluded rants of an aging fool. Far from it. These opinions mirror the talking points of our media, and they get their talking points from the council on foreign relations and the Tri-Lateral commission. Elements of the shadow government and global banking cabal bent on subverting this unique governmental experiment we call "America."
Their plan was steam rolling until TRUMP happened.
---Pharisee on 2/21/17|
Pope Francis said "muslim terrorism does not exist." He also said that global warming is an extreme danger to humanity, all religions seek God, christian fundamentalism is a sickness, openly promotes a one world religion, islamic prayers at the Vatican, calls for a new global political authority, believed in evolution, etc. Your thoughts?
---Steveng on 2/20/17|
Thank you, Pharisee > that is very clear. I have considered something like this, myself.
May be God is more concerned about unborns being killed, but there is sort of a status quo so things aren't going totally crazy and different. But this does not excuse what people do.
And there needs to be real change of character, not only reform.
"If a million unborn babies were kept and brought up but unloved, that could bring more chaos than radical immigrants might cause."
And I see how God will resist those who are in pride of their unloving and self-righteous religion.
He resists me, by the way.
---Bill on 2/20/17|
"Christians are saying so much about Muslims, but little or nothing about native-born killers of unborn people.
---Bill on 2/20/17
Well I speak for me in saying that the Muslim situation if unchecked would be chaos upon chaos. Yes it's bad that we have abortion, but RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK in America there is an active disinformation campaign being spread concerning the danger/lack of danger in taking Islamic refugees. The Saudis took none for the longest time because "it would increase the risk of terrorism" in their country. This is a mistake where 1 bad egg can literally blow up the refrigerator. It's not more important, but to me it's more urgent.
---Pharisee on 2/20/17|
So, what if someone is ok with attacking and killing an unborn person? It seems not much attention is going to how certain Americans are killing unborn people. Why, though, are Muslims getting so much attention, but not killers of unborn people????
The United States medical profession, to my knowledge, now already has administrative individuals who are ok with abortion, and they are determining medical policies which effect many people. Their character, ok with killing the unborn, can also effect how they deal with various patients, and make decisions about them.
Yet, it seems that even publicly known Christians are saying so much about Muslims, but little or nothing about native-born killers of unborn people.

Would you or members of your worldly dehominational "church,", Steveng?
Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 2/20/17|
A distinction should be made, I debate Muslims all the time about THEIR religion, and you'd be shocked at how many of them don't know what's in their Qu'ran. Just Friday I opened the eyes of a man born into Islam here in the US and he didn't know Surah 5:51 that forbids him from taking Jews and Christians as friends.
So while most Muslims are decent people we should all be aware that their Qu'ran (in numerous passages) has ordered them to fight subdue and if necessary kill us. For some to get radical all it takes is for them to get serious about following their religion. This is why we shouldn't import Muslims.
---Pharisee on 2/19/17|
I meant of course [Not] all muslims are terrorist.
---josef on 2/19/17|
There's a difference between loving your enemies and giving up your life for them. Letting your enemy into your home is cruel to those that you love and are supposed to protect.
There comes a time for self sacrificial love, rarely is it for your enemies, yet this is exactly Jesus' example. Your job isn't to save the world though, his was. Be content, it's often enough that our own families hate us for Jesus and become enemies even if only for a while.
Loving sharks and swimming with them don't necessarily go together.
---Pharisee on 2/18/17|
"Would you allow muslims into your home to live with you?" Why not? No all muslims are terrorist. If they do happen to be terrorist, and I am aware of it, then no. Scripture also says " what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" Etc
---josef on 2/18/17|
I would rather have some kinds Muslims in my home than some kinds of Christians.
