This scholar provides mounting evidence, insight, & analysis of the destructiveness of Islam on the world in ancient times…the graphic around time 14 minutes into the video reveals the march of Islam in the Mediterranean region in the dark ages & then around 49 minutes there is a corresponding display juxtaposing the Crusade battles…This is compelling & fascinating material from politicalislam.com…here are some quotes…

“Over 19,000 jihad attacks since 9-11” is discussed around the 36 minute mark.

Only 12 decades in Islam’s 1400 year history of bloodshed are jihad free–at 40:51.

“Islam is 91% violence, 9% peace” from a graphic also at the 40:51 minute mark.

“Islam has a doctrine of jihad that produces the effect of the collapse of civilization” around 41:30 in the video.  Also “over 270, 000,000 dead in 1400 years”…

“After 1400 years of jihad, brutality, enslavement, theft, deception, rape, annihilation and insults the Kafir mind has become identical to that of an abused victim” around 44 minutes into the video.

Here is a lengthy biblical passage reminding us to look to the Lord for Truth!

Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[b]

39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.

“If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would[c] do what Abraham did. 40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. 41 You are doing the works of your own father.”

“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me.43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

One of the commenters at her post also shared this video of Billy Graham’s message in the National Cathedral following the tragic attack on America of 9-11…

For some reason I’m having a problem posting a comment on Stella’s original post so I’ll add that thought here.  This was in reply to others discussion some music from the Billy Graham rallies…

I watched one of his crusades on TV years ago & remember them playing “Just As I Am” for an extended altar call. Every time I hear that song, or even think about it, I remember Graham’s loving outreach to others with the Truth of the Gospel. Even humming a few bars of that hymn reminds me that the Lord is always there accepting us & drawing us toward Himself.

For what it’s worth, there are many fine insights shared in the comments section at Stella’s Place & at the Conservative TreeHouse (I consider them to be cousin or sister blogs)…& it’s often worth one’s time to read beyond just any original posting…

Billy Graham’s casket was hand built by inmates at Angola

http://www.wafb.com/story/37560797/billy-grahams-casket-was-hand-built-by-inmates-at-angola

ANGOLA, LA (WAFB) –

Inmates at one of the country’s most well-known prisons will have a hand in laying Reverend Billy Graham to rest. At his request, Angola inmates built his casket back in 2006.

Louisiana State Penitentiary is known as the “Alcatraz of the south.” It’s home to the state’s most notorious criminals, but is also home to a renowned prison ministry.

“I feel there is a great outpouring of the holy spirit behind bars at this time,” said Clifford Bowman.

Bowman is in bible college at Angola. He was selected to be part of a special team on a special mission: to build a casket. It’s a regular casket for a not so regular man: evangelist, Billy Graham.

“We of course prayed before we started and that’s something that does not happen every day when they are doing it in the regular work. Where God is working the devil’s gonna’ be there working, so he’s gonna’ try and get his licks in too,” said Bowman.

“This was a great honor. Because this is a great man of God and he wants him an inmate to build his coffin and get the inmate preachers involved and its mind boggling it sends a great message,” said Burl Cain.

Richard Liggett constructed the casket for Graham with a couple of modifications from his usual work and it’s ready. “I respect the man. I’ve listened to him. I know what he preaches. You know, but other than that, I just wanted to do the best job I could,” said Liggett.

Angola first began building their own caskets about 18 years ago. Inmates before then were buried in cardboard boxes, which often fell apart or caved in from the weight of the dirt.

“It’s so symbolic, even though the prisoners have committed horrible crimes… God loves them too,” said Cain.

And so did Reverend Billy Graham.
