More Than Half of Evangelicals View Islam as a Violent Religion
More than half of evangelical Christians (52 percent) view Islam as "essentially a violent religion," a new report from Barna Group reveals, though only about a quarter (26 percent) of all American adults feel the same way.

Despite the general perception of Islam within the evangelical community, 68 percent of evangelicals agree with the statement: "Peace between Christians and Muslims is possible." Researchers also found that 79 percent of mainline Christians, 82 percent of college graduates and 75 percent of all American adults also believe such peace is possible. ...

"More Than Half of Evangelicals View Islam as a Violent Religion"

More than half? What do the rest believe, in light of what Islam itself teaches of infidels?

Just trying to understand, are you saying that evangelicals are the ones who have started or gone to war against the Muslims? or that Muslims would just view all non-Muslims as evangelicals and blame us for fighting back in a war they started against us?

Thank you for that good response. I would say that Jeremiah [29:13] was addressing the people of God. They were in captivity for the sinning against the Lord. He admonished them to seek the Lord. I would think all God's people should be encouraged to do that. I would also say we should encourage the lost to seek the Lord while He may be found. But I cannot say that an unsaved person just because they are sincerely seeking God in their false religion will have an opportunity for salvation just because they are seeking it with all their heart. They must hear the gospel from the Word of God, and they must be born again.
I agree fully with your post, US.

Men do not by nature seek God in the way he has prescribed. There are plenty of religious people in the world, and their religion or religiosity will not save them, no matter how sincere, no matter how vehemently the ecumenists claim it.

It is for this reason that missionary effort is crucial, and the people of God should make it an absolute priority to ensure that the great and glorious gospel of Jesus Christ is presented to the entire world.

As you say, men MUST be born again, or there is no heaven for them.

There is no similarity between the two.
Despite this, one could believe there are Muslims, completely trapped by their surroundings, seeking God with all their heart, soul and mind, and believe that Christ reveals himself even up to the point of their death and gives them a choice to believe on him.
One could also believe there will be those known as Muslims on this earth, who will be in heaven with us.
Those who seek God with their whole heart will not be disappointed.

I dont know, but you will have to be more convincing then listing the 7 hills of Rome to convince anyone
also answer
1) Why didnt John of Patmos use the Greek word 'bounos' to make it clear its 'hill' and not 'mountain'
2) How do you answer the Biblical correlation of the 'Mountains' being also the Beasts 'Heads'
Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

The argument that its Rome was popular during the Counter Reformation, as Catholics killed Protestants. However, during the 30 year war, we discovered Protestants could kill Saints as easily as Rome could...so the Rome idea really doesnt fly, and certainly not today

Hey John,

You missed Steve's major error, which he loves to promote viz. that the whore in Rev 17 is the bride of Christ!

Hence his question to Rufus about Roman Catholics being members of the bride.

Then we have the RCC troll who cannot think let alone make any sensible case who claims that I am making his case for him. I always doubted his comprehension skills, but I had no idea how chronic the case was. Must be the magic water!

About the hills: Not every language distinguishes between a hill and a mountain. The Apostle John was a Jew. In fact, in Hebrew, the word "har" can mean either "hill "or "mountain."

And there is another city built on seven hills/mountains: Mecca. Whether Mecca or Rome is the evil city, Islam has ties to Roman Catholicism in it's origins. Muhammad's cousin was a Catholic nun, for example. I'm no expert on any of this, but if you think of bible-prophecy as describing Islam, I can see it describing one or the other...or both.

About the public's view of Islam: Most Muslims I've met are very friendly, some less than others. I believe God has given me (not raising myself up by any means) a sensitive heart for Muslim people. I am for keeping life sacred, including a Muslim's life. What I am strongly against is Islam. If I were to view Islam as warm, peaceful, and friendly, I'd consider myself a traitor to my country and my Christian faith. Islam wants to dominate and kill, so bringing "friendly" Muslims to America is just propaganda.

Revelation 17:6 - And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
The woman is the whore on seven hills, the hills are in Rome. The whore will later be destroyed. Neither the whore nor the whore's destroyer are Islam.
Why is the Bride of Christ maligned as the Whore of Babylon? Jesus himself answered the question:

"If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household" (Matt. 10:25).

"If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world . . . the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you" (John 15:18–20).

Worldlings will always relentlessly abhor Christ's Bride. It's in their nature. Pray for them and do not curse.

Please don't become too much of an expert in this as you might miss the obvious, what God Himself says in His description of the Great Harlot, this infamous spiritual "entity" in Revelations, and the things she has done, does and will yet do identifies one city clearly, Rome.

But seriously ever hear of the Inquisition ?

Genuine born again believers ought to weep in prayer that people professing themselves to be Christians would refuse to face the truth, warn people of Catholicism and do all we might rightfully do to see Catholic people saved.
