― Black Pigeon Speaks
Yes, and this is precisely why the following is true: When Christians are faithful to the teachings and call of Jesus Christ, they become less violent. In Christianity, warfare is an aberration. When Muslims are faithful to the teachings and example of Muhammad, they become more violent. In Islam, warfare is (or should be) the constant state of mind and body until the whole earth is subjugated. On the other hand, if Christians were as faithful as the true Muslims, evangelism would be for each and every one of them a constant state of mind and spirit until 'the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea' (Habakkuk 2:14).
The warriors of the Caliphate live and fight for Allah, even though their god is man-made, is a theoretical idol, a fabrication, a lie. When the worldly powers finally defeat them, they will have accomplished nearly nothing, substituting one set of lies for another. The darkness of Islam can only be defeated by the only weapon which has already conquered the world. That is the Cross of Christ. No, not Christianity. Especially not by military crusades. We tried that centuries ago against the Muslims and even against each other, and now we know for sure, it doesn't work.
Only the Cross of Christ, only our willingness to follow Him who said, ‘Take up your cross and follow Me’ (Matthew 16:24), only by doing what we see Him doing (that is nothing more than following His commandments, which are simple and few), yes, only by the Cross, teaching by it and suffering on it, will the darkness of Islam be defeated. And it has to. It must. It was only a shadow and a scourge to call the Church back to her first love. Have we had enough? Are we ready to really follow Christ and let Muhammad return to the outer darkness?
