What IF? Islam and JESUS

What if every Islamic man, woman and child embraced Jesus’ teaching on enemies? “But I tell you who hear me, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”
It is easy to hate those who abuse and mistreat us. It is natural to hate back; but it takes a supernatural love to love your enemies. The Apostle Paul said that, “Love keeps no record of wrongs.”
If every Islamic person embraced these teachings, there would be no suicide bombers and no one would have to endure the cutting off of their heads or the chopping off of their hands. No wife would have to endure beatings from her husband. No woman would have to endure sexual mutilation.
According to the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he described love as the most excellent way. The Apostle John said God is love. There are 100 names of God in Islam, but no word that refers to God as love.
Jesus said you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. The choice is clear: love or hate. It is the difference between day and night.

If you know you are not right with God, repent [t’shuvah in Hebrew].   Repent  means to turn from doing things your way and turning to God’s ways.  Trust in Jesus [Yeshua], not yourself.  Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh]   Attend a Church that believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  Get baptized.  Read your Bible daily and follow the teachings of Jesus [Yeshua]  Walk in His Love to all you come in contact with.

                                                                          Shalom in Jesus
