Anybody read presstv.com at all? I check out many sites, jpost, cnn, cbc (of course) and other news outlets. PressTV.com is Irans ‘semi official’ news outlet? I think, anyways, it was created as a way to ‘balance’ western media for the english speaking world. I go there regularly, its VERY interesting to see how they spin the stories in the world to match their beliefs, or atleast what the Iranian government wants you to believe. Its a big victorious story anytime western soldiers are killed or Israelis are killed. And then they have sob stories of the palestinians, how they are being occupied by the little satan – Israel (as they call it, America is the ‘great satan’).
Don’t go blurting out that our media is spun as well, I KNOW THAT, obviously :S . But you can’t use that to explain the hatred of the Jewish people now and through the ages. Why did Hitler hate them?? (btw, CBC did / is doing a great documentary on the second world war hosted by George therm-0-polis or whatever his last name is, check it out on cbc.ca, its a 6 part series or something, real good showing propaganda from both sides). Why does Iran hate them so much? What does Iran have to do with Israel? sure, I can see the people in Gaza, or countries neighbouring Israel to have an opinion on them, but Iran? Makes no sense.
On the presstv message boards there are just lots of pro muslim / iran talking heads saying ‘death to the jews’ and all this nutty stuff. Note that as christians we love others but at the same time we need to be realistic and understand that any religion that does not accept Jesus as Christ and saviour is a religion worshipping the anti-christ. There is no middle ground here and if Christians can’t say that, then how luke warm are we!! Christians are SO nice, we don’t want to stir the pot even when it comes down to stating the truth. Are we just supposed to know the truth in our heads but not discuss it, not proclaim it? We are such lame christians.
Mark 9:40 Anyone who is not against us is for us. (the converse is of course true as well)
The below youtube vid is of a Lebanese born pastor, he became a christian, hence the whole pastor thing and he provides a great look inside the muslim community as he lived it for years. We need to get our heads out of the sand and stand up for what we believe in. God loves muslims and anybody else on the planet, but that should not prevent us from speaking the truth because we want to be politically correct!
Do we believe the bible enough to proclaim it or don’t we? Are we willing to take the heat?
