Lately I'm seeing alot of videos and articles about Muslims declaring Holy War and taking over Britain etc. Now I'll show the other side, The Born Again Christians. I've hearing stories about Evangelicals like Pastor Hagee saying that the War in Iraq and Afghanistan is some kind of Holy War. That sounds like a Muslim radicals. It seems the sad part fanatics have taken control of our relgion and give it a bad name.

A general even said that this is a holy war

To clarify, not ashamed of my faith, ashamed that these bastards have hijacked it for their own purposes.

I tried searching it, but only found a bunch of sites referencing a book of the same name, by 2 former Muslims. The book talks about the Crusades, apparently not modern-day events.

Wow, you need to listen to what these guys are saying, there isnt a call for war at all they are talking about a "spiritual war". Either you are simply not listening or your trying to make a problem where there clearly isnt one.

Iam glad you said "so called" or else I thought you might be spitting out the word "Born again Christian" like the Hollywood actors who say "Jesus Christ in the place ofa swear word, but that clearly doesnt apply to you.
Lutherans are the founders of the so called "Born again movement"
they were against the false perversions of the true scriptures that originated from the pagan Roman mindset.
We as so callled christians have killed more humans by force on this planet in the last one hundred years than the Muslims have
by a ratio of approx 120 to one.
Those who decided on war in Iraq are not practising christians anymore than Osama Bin laden is a practising Muslim, or that Isreali settlers are practising Judaism.
What they are all doing is killing under the guise of a God, this absolves them from murder"to them at least and to the laws.
Jesus Christ would have wept for the Palestinians and wept for his own people, for he knew God will not be mocked.
Jesus Christ was against racism and the predjudices of the time, but he didnt advocate killing in order to bring about change, he preached love and understanding? for which he was killed.
The romans after his crucifixion continued to kill, and the Jews were killed.
The Romans then killed hundreds of thousands and enslaved the known world by force,preaching christianity as they raped and pillaged, this world is full of hypocrites give them no heed none at all.

I think no war can ever be holy. It´s an economics or power-driven beastly machine controlled by human animals we ultimately are. Well, who am I to (mis)judge, you may ask ? They call me the New Black Pope, as the late Anton La Vey writhes in his grave upon watching the debris of his once solid church. I swear on all the three Bibles, respecting them.

I think that the best that we can hope for is a just war. There will only be one Holy War and I'm thankful that we aren't there yet.

That being said, there is a huge difference between Monday morning quarterbacks who use the U.S.'s presence in the middle east to help fill their coffers and Islamic extremists who actively recruit, fund, train and bless terrorists.

There is no equivalency between shysters who line their pockets by linking Christianity to geo-political maneuverings for the unquestioning parishioners and those that behead others in the name of Islam.

I'd be ecstatic to see neither, but I'd deal with charlatans of any stripe seven days a week if it meant that we didn't have a world where mothers would proudly condone the actions of their children who blew themselves up to take some infidels with them.

Thankfully there is nothing currently in Christianity that you can equate to the colloquially accepted 'Jihad' of radical Islamists.

Matthew 10

[31] Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
[32] Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
[33] But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
[34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
[35] For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
[36] And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Luke 22 Jesus said to sell there garment and by a sword.

[34] And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
[35] And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
[36] Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

As a believer in Jesus as lord and savior I believe he is telling us to protect our selves from worldly attacks like some one trying to rob or kill you.
