    The Bible agrees with you Tyler. However, the blind cannot see what you are saying. The Islamic world is as varied as the 'so called' "Christian" world (that does not really know God). The WHOLE WORLD is under Satan's deception (Revelation 12:9). The return of Christ will eliminate this blindness in due time. Those who are called to be First Fruits, can see, and must heed the requirement to Repent, and believe this really Good News.

    When the apostle John was penning the Book of Revelation - Jesus's letter to His church - He noted something special about the women (Biblically a church) "18 And the woman you saw is the great city that has an empire[i] over the kings of the earth.” - Revelation 17: 18, Holman Christian Standard Bible. John live at the time when this city ruled - and that city was Rome. However, we have a case here of, if you don't want to see, you will not. That is why Jesus said: "He that has an ear to hear, let him hear." Your point is excellent, and so is the program. Thank you Mr. McNeely and Mr. Britt.

    Ms. Haner, thank you for your comments. Note, some additional things that the same Disciple of Christ wrote concerning what a true Christian is, see 1 John 2: 3-6. Another one He called and ordained to His service noted this as well see Hebrews 4: 9. However, it must be noted that no one can come to Him (Be a True Christian) unless drawn by the Father (John 6: 44). Those who are called, and yet reject that call, are still holding on to their fleshly way of thinking (Romans 8: 6-8). That is where Peter's words come into play Acts 2: 38.

    Thank you Mr. Miller for your comments. You hit the nail on the head. President George H.W. Bush was, however, not techneckly one of the 'fallen', he went the way of 'all flesh'. Just as most humans, he died at a ripe old age; with his family gathered around him. This was a lot like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Job... President Bush did not die in battle as a fallen mighty young warrior (Like Saul and Jonathan), but as an accomplished old man, not yet called to real salvation. It was an outstanding national funeral. The comment "Hatred corrodes the container it is carried in!"; that, and many other such comments, reflect the grace of God that will yet come to bless so many, in a very awesome way, in God's scheduled time. Again, thank you.

    Sadly, the blind 'spiritually still cannot yet see (2 Corinthians 4: 3-4) . However, the message is for those who do have an ear to hear. Some will react just as the Jews of that day did to Jesus' teachings! This is why Jesus usually said; "Let him who has an ear to hear - hear!" - Matthew 11: 15; 13: 9, etc. This is message is for those who will be 1st Fruits of God's great plan. Those who have ears to hear, will hear (John 10: 26-29).

    This is a fine article. However, we are not the judge. God is. The ones we are to be more discerning about are those who are supposed to be Christians, and are clearly, busy bodies disrupting the church and 'preying' on others; That what Paul was referring to
    (2 Thessalonians 3: 10-15). Even then it is better to err on the side of mercy rather than in an attitude of harshness (Matthew 25: 41-46). Very good point - twocents

    Outstanding presentation. Thank you! Excellent points Mr. Bey. As Jesus once answered a young fellows question regarding how he could obtain eternal life: "Keep the Commandments" (Matthew 19: 17). He clarified his further question by noting the Ten Commandments. 'He that has an ear to hear' - will hear! Thanks again!!
