Terry Jones, Again- Depraved

Terry Jones, ‘Pastor’ of a tiny flock of pentebabbleist heretics is in the news again for, you guessed it, threatening to burn Qurans.

U.S. pastor Terry Jones, a self-professed scourge of Islam, has threatened to “burn Qurans and images of Prophet Mohammed” if a Christian religious leader in Iran is not released from jail, he announced on his organization’s website this week.  Jones has set a deadline of 5 p.m. on Saturday April 28 for the release of Iranian pastor Youcef Nadakhani otherwise he warned of a repeat of last year’s Quran burning which led to widespread rioting and deaths around the world.  Nadarkhani, who has been charged with apostasy and sentenced to death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity, receives support from Jones through his organization, Stand Up America Now.“The time of doing nothing must come to an end. We call citizens around the world to burn Qurans and images of Mohammed publicly if Pastor Youcef is executed and not released!” a statement on the site said. It is unclear which images of the Prophet (pbuh) the statement referred to.

Quick question for Jones:  how will burning Qurans help free a real pastor?  The one has nothing to do with the other. All of us want Youcef Nadakhani freed but threatening to burn books won’t accomplish that.  It will only accomplish lunacy.

Please, ‘pastor’ Jones, set yourself adrift on a raft in the vicinity of a desert island and live out your days there in the solitude which your nauseating hate-mongering deserves and merits.

Muslim folk- please, please don’t lump all Christians together with this madman.  The vast majority of us aren’t your enemies and don’t see you as ours.

  1. As we say in the South: “Idjit.”

  2. Isn’t this a rather thin line we walk? We are at war with the “Prince of the air”. We are called put on the armor of God to fight against satan, since “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

    My point is this: While followers of Islam are not our enemies, neither are they our allies. We are not to embrace their faith as equal to ours, or compatible, or one of many ways to God. As a faith that pulls one away from Christ, that actually DOES do harm to followers of Christ simply for following Him, and accepting Him as Lord and Savior, we can perhaps argue that the reverse IS true. That Islam does view us if not as the enemy, then as a bug to be squashed. An infectious parasite that must be eliminated.

    So, then, my question: How can we, in the face of such persecution, walk this line of sharing our faith, and explaining that our faith is the one, true way to salvation, while at the same time being honest enough to share that their faith is not just wrong but (ref: Ephesians 6) part of the spiritual forces of evil?
