WWJD OR WWMD?

ISRAEL E-CARD Volume 4 Issue 13 July 1, 2010

Topic # 1   Quite The Contrast

The Christian classic In His Steps by Charles Sheldon asked “What would Jesus do?” The age of the acronym reduced it to WWJD. What if you used the same concept with Mohammed? How do the two founders of their faiths compare in their conduct? The founder of Islam is known for multiple wives, child brides, bloody warfare, lying and stealing. None of these charges can be attributed to Jesus. My friend John Fisk makes the salient point that if you follow the religious ideology of Islam you can be just like its founder. In fact, the better Muslim you are, the more you would be like him. I prefer to follow the example of Jesus.

It is also interesting that the acronym for “what would Mohammed do?” includes WMD, famously used for weapons of mass destruction. I believe this applies to Islam on several levels, most seriously the eternal judgment of those who deny the fatherhood of Yahweh and sonship of Yashua (Jesus).

Finally, the better question is not what would Jesus do? But what did He do? He did not live for His own will, but the will of the Father. He did nothing of His own initiative, as John’s Gospel declares, but He always asked the Father what to say and do. Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” John 5:19

Topic #2  IAF Landed At Saudi Base

The Israeli Air Force recently unloaded military equipment at a Saudi Arabian base, an Iranian news agency claimed last week, while a large American force has massed in Azerbaijan, which is on the northwest border of Iran. The report follows the Pentagon’s confirmation that a large American fleet sailed through the Suez Canal earlier this month, with an Israeli ship joining the armada. (IsraelNationalNews.com)

FATHER and SON

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22-23
