Evangelism as Lifeboat

Our preacher gave these projections yesterday:

5 years - Europe will be majority Muslim

`18 years - US will be majority Muslim

Evangelism is no longer merely an option for the church in America, sandwiched in amongst the youth retreats, church league games, and 'pot bless' dinner get-togethers. By 'evangelism, I mean disciple-making, not just leaving a newsprint tract on the lavatory at Wal-Mart or Waffle House, where it will rapidly turn into papier-mache. (Why do people leave tracts on top of the urinals? I sure don't want to collect reading matter from there!)

Muslims are not shy about their convert-making, and are not scattershot in their efforts. They target the underclass: prisoners, the poor, the disenfranchised (rather reminds me of Jesus' methods), sharing a vision of power and worth, of being on top when they are the majority, wielding Sharia to subjugate 'the man' who put them down. The jackleg theology of many black churches, misapplying the Exodus story to their own history of slavery from a century and a half ago, has prepared a backslidden group for assimilation by the adherents of Islam. White teens, privileged and spoiled, with no good roots in Biblical knowledge or history, are prime candidates for Muslim 'evangelists' They are offered discipline and meaning for their lives, along with a vision of a subjugated corrupt West.

The UK is almost gone. The combination of the rejection of the historic Christian faith, with the concomitant non-breeding of the European stock (sacrificing their potential progeny to the twin gods of Gaia and Selfishness), along with a kindergarten concept of 'fairness'; opening the door to unlimited immigration has torpedoed Merry Olde.

The U.S. is in moderately better shape, hence the longer time-frame. The left/Gaia/tree-hugger crowd are talking themselves out of breeding, but the evangelicals and other theologically conservative Bible-believers are breeding more. The homeschoolers are just wacko about it!. The Dread Dormomoo and I had four children, doubling our replacement, and people thought we were out of control.("You DO know what causes that, right?"), as did her parents. Six and eight kids is not unusual for believing homeschool parents; generally being good at reading comprehension, they take "be fruitful and multiply" to be a given in the Christian life. "The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof" is an article of faith; it forms the basis of my own views of stewardship of our lovely ball of mud. That the Christian faith is the most potent defense against the predations of Islam Extreme
TM is also a given; mere reproduction is not the key. We must do other things, harder things, less-fun-things than making new children. We must make disciples, teaching our zombie neighbors, the dead-in-sin-but-walking neighbors the life-giving Gospel, Not just John 3:16 amd Acts 2:38, but also Matthew 5-7...teaching them day-by-day how to live the life, just like Jesus taught his disciples. That will result in more of God's kids in the country, who are taught to teach more disciples, so that we will be able to form a spiritual bulwark against the onslaught to come. I do not see an alternative, not one that will work. We must do this Jesus' way, or all will be lost. Do it His way, or break out the burqhas, and learn what dhimmi means.

Learning Arabic is a good idea, too. Because they're ready to talk about faith... you'd be surprised how open Muslims are to chatting. Particularly when you learn some of their language.

I'm almost four months into my study of Arabic and I've already made plenty of friends. Americans simply DON'T learn other languages, particularly the language of the turrrsts!

If I, of all people, can be a friend to Muslims... it should be a piece of cake for the average Xian.

Indeed. Lanie is taking part in a Christian forum which has had a Muslim come aboard. At first, he seemed to be a troll, but it turned out that he had some erroneous ideas about Christians and America. He could not understand , if Jesus died for everyone's sins, why there is so much rape in the US.

A-HA! The fatal flaw of thinking America is a Christian nation. This is a very common error in the Muslim world, and when they see US culture besmirching the name of one who is a prophet to them (however well they hear him...) it drives 'em into a frenzy. The same Hollywood machine that produces "The Ten Commandments" and "The Passion" also makes "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Land Before Time".

The guy is being dealt with civilly, and I believe that fruit is being borne.

I did not make it clear, but I certainly believe that the adherents of Islam should most assuredly have the gospel shared with them. At present, I personally have none in my orbit.

Very good!
Though fear of Islamization should not be our primary motivator, I definitely agree that the Word of God, not religion, WASP CULTure or any of the myriad other "American" fillers and by-products propounded in its stead, is The Way (John 14:6) to heal and deliver this country from its destructions.
