Please don’t be deceived, Islam does not worship the same god that we do.  You have to go by description and character, just as you would in a court of law, to know who our God is and who their god is.  Our God is love, truth, righteousness, order, impartiality, justice, holiness, perfection, omnipotence, omniscience, etc.  Our God demands of us a holy, righteous, and loving lifestyle of service to others as well as an exacting requirement of our character and actions.  Their god is a bloody, violent god that even allows deception in his name.  As soon as you allow bending or manipulation of the truth, then you have wandered off the narrow path of truth that leads through the doorway of our Savior, Jesus.  You are, instead, on the broad, fast moving highway that leads to destruction and Hell.  There will be no celebrations in Hell as Satan has deceived many, even trying to make it sound joyous as in the AC/DC song “Highway to Hell.”  There will be, instead, unimaginable, incomprehensible suffering.  This is not a destination that we should wish upon even our worst enemies who have abused us repeatedly. 

But while there is only one way to heaven, there are many ways to Hell, and one of those ways is by watered down doctrine.  One example of it is the whole “purpose driven” fad which I’ve always been wary of.  If you’ve gotten something out of it and have a stronger walk with God, then I have no problem with it, but so many such faddish programs get people out of a singular focus on the Bible and a close walk with God by offering easy, slick, well-packaged religion.  They are a big departure from the messier, harder path that follows in our Savior’s suffering.  This and so many other modern Christian fads have never seemed right to me.  They sounded too much like the methods of the world with slick marketing and truth bound up in convenient bite-size nuggets.  God’s truth is so much bigger, touching on every aspect of life, just as He wants to be intimately involved in our lives like any loving father. 

I always felt in my spirit that this was not real truth.  I felt that God was showing me years ago how these methods were worldly and were extra-biblical, stepping outside the bounds of truth.  People lean too much on packaged theology; they always have.  It is so much simpler to accept someone else’s ready-made package of ideas and beliefs.  It is so much easier than the path of struggle and turmoil to discover and live out truth personally.  But finding truth for ourselves is our responsibility.  As 2 Tim. 2:15 admonishes, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  So when it comes to biblical truth, we’re supposed to be thinking for ourselves.   But we reap what we sow.  If we sow to easy shortcuts, we will reap the harvest of apostasy and destruction.  If we sow to real truth and put in the hard work to understand it within our spirits, getting accustomed to thinking our own thoughts that are worked out in hard effort either through prayer, meditation, or during our daily obligations, then we will reap the real and tangible victory of God’s work in our life as we apply His truth to every aspect of our lives and become the people that we want to be in His service.

It is unique post because it is giving unique ideas about Islam and Christians. Being a Muslim i believe in only one God and he is watching us all time . We can not see him because we are human. God is only one but Christians are not agree wit us.

I don't think that you are right about it. It's your opinion but I don't support it.

This is such an interesting read. I think that several people should read about your blog. What makes it extra special is that given that you are a retired soldier. It reflects your article, because you were able to deliver more wisdom. I agree with you that there are indeed no celebrations in hell and many people are being deceived. Overall, your article was written in an elaborate manner.

    I'm a retired soldier, having spent 23 years of my life serving our country, actually 30 years when you count the reserve and National Guard time as well.  I believe in servant leaders, following the example of our Lord, and I believe in giving back to the troops once one has attained a certain status or level of success in life.  But I also believe in fighting back against corruption and incompetence wherever you find it if it hurts people.  Our national values were worth dying for.  They are also worth living for.  A man or woman can actually live a life by these principles of humility, service, love, duty, and honor, and have a significant impact on the world around them...if you have the dedication to see it through.
