Coexist? Really? I’ll pray for you.


I created this web site out of a concern for a very real threat that few people are paying attention to.  Most seem to evaluate this threat through a careless and comfortable lens of naivety. For example, how many of you have seen this bumper sticker traveling around?

coexist? really?

Every time I see one of these, I actually experience a moment of sadness for the person who has it on their car. I can’t help but think how their naivety is going to allow great harm and suffering in the near future in which this person may be included and I end up praying that God would save them.

Now here’s a bumper sticker that’s by one of the religions in focus on this web site (it is included as the very first on the one above). This ad and a few others will soon appear on buses in Sydney, Australia.

I wonder if they can be sued for false advertising?

Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
[1 John 2:22 NASB]

and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.
[1 John 4:3 NASB]

So, let’s take a peek at Islam, this religion of peace and tolerance, and see if it really can mesh with the others.

Did you know that a Catholic Bishop was recently beheaded by Islamists? Yeah, really. Read about it here:

Have you heard about any of the Islamic honor killings taking place in the United States?
Do you know what’s been going on in the Ivory Coast, a country in Africa?
Are you aware of what Islamists do even to their own people?

Do you think that just because they move to our country, all of a sudden, they simply won’t behave like this anymore?

And yet, those who warn others of the threat of Islam are considered hateful.

There are many more things which could be included.

I wonder how these things fit into the “coexist” model?

Well, I can’t leave you without some hope… and hope does not disappoint.  Hope has a sure ending. Let all who trust in Christ be grounded in the peace of Scripture.

You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
[1 John 4:4-6 NASB]
