Why all the upheaval and controversy when a discussion comes up about Islam and Christianity in America? Has political correctness become a serious threat in the land of the free?
I am going out on a limb to say most informed Americans agree with Dr. Ben Carson and oppose the idea of a practicing Muslim running for president of the United States. When the media backlash began, I’m glad he doubled down.
There are however, several angles to this debate; on one side there are already Muslims working for our government while on the other side, the sociopolitical and economic system of Islam is directly opposed to the Constitution, not to mention Christianity.
As we dig a bit deeper, many of us would simply ask for honesty as well as an acknowledgement of key facts…
Ben Carson simply said whoever is elected president of the United States should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.” He also stated:
I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that… I do not believe Sharia law is consistent with the Constitution of this country.
The nation’s largest Muslim advocacy group went so far as to demand Ben Carson drop out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination…
Where doctrine is concerned, Islam rejects the deity of Jesus Christ, the resurrection, the virgin birth, the Holy Spirit, and the fact Jesus is the Son of the only living God…
Pastor John MacArthur summed it up well when he stated:
Islam today is the most powerful system on earth for the destruction of biblical truth and Christianity – thousands of Christians are dying under Islamic persecution, especially in the Middle East, Africa, Indonesia, and other parts of Asia. Clearly, Islam and Christianity are mutually exclusive. Both claim to be the only true way to God, but both cannot be right. There is no atonement in Islam, no forgiveness, no savior, and no assurance of eternal life.
