Summary: Some people don’t want America to be considered a Christian nation.
Why Terrorist Hate America, Part 3
Oct. 25, 2009 FBC, Chester Dr. Mike Fogerson, Speaker
A Our nation is based upon religious freedom, & true Christians would never force conversion upon anyone (matter of personal faith, a personal decision).
1 Prior to 1963, any child immigrating to America heard a Bible story read & a prayer (often concluded in Jesus’ name).
a Through the influence & political pressure of a radical atheist named Madalyn O’Hair, both prayer & Bible reading were removed from our public schools by a decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.
b Prior to this time, anyone coming to America understood we were a Christian nation with moral & spiritual values based on the Bible.
aa Many immigrants coming from Europe were Catholic, Protestant, or an Orthodox Christian.
bb During the last 50 years, millions of immigrants from the Middle East, Asia, & India have poured into America (Muslims & Hindus).
2 After 1963-64, as people of other faiths began to pour into America, they no longer heard the Words of Life or prayers prayed to our God.
a Thus, they continued to follow their own religious indoctrinations.
b Some blend in, and others are here for different motives.
aa Abdul Alim Musa (a Washington, D.C. imam) said he is working to replace the U.S. government with an Islamic state by 2050. Establish a complete way of Islamic life in the U.S.
bb CAIR’s (The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim lobbyist group in Washington, D.C.) chairman has stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. I hope to see an Islamic government over the U.S. one day. The Koran (the Muslim book of Scripture) should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
B Why is it their agenda to make the government of America Islamic, under Islamic law?
1 To control the economic & educational centers of the world (U.S.).
2 Rise above the rival religion of Christianity.
3 Establish an active & visible Islamic kingdom on earth.
C How? I believe there are 3 areas in which their agenda is being initiated.
I Replacing the Euro for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency (reserve currency is a currency held in huge quantities by many governments as part of their foreign exchange reserves. Tends to be the international pricing currency for products traded on the global market: oil, gold, etc. ).
A Since World War II, the dollar has sustained its buying power in the world, but the Euro is changing the equation.
1 The Euro has grown in acceptance/value as the currency for much of Europe in recent years (2nd most common reserve currency).
a Muslims angry at America for going to Afghanistan/Iraq are spreading the word that Islamic nations should avoid using dollars & begin using Euros as their international currency.
aa It’s tough, because some Arab leaders have huge amounts of cash in American dollars stored away in secret vaults.
bb The tide is rising to switch from the dollar to the Euro.
b In July at the G-8 summit in Italy, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called for a supranational currency. (Picture of summit)
aa As he spoke, he reached into his pocket & pulled out a gold coin.
bb Picture of coin
cc "But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."29 Then He told them a parable: "Behold the fig tree and all the trees;30 as soon as they put forth leaves, you see it and know for yourselves that summer is now near.31 "So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near. Luke 21:28-31 (NASB)
c United future world currency minted in Brussels, Belgium.
aa Part of the manifesto: “It will be the responsibility of the world’s future citizens and the governments they put in place to make our Project a reality. This project is driven by a firm belief in the unification and coexistence of different peoples. It aims to promote an increasingly equal distribution of the planet’s resources and human intellect.”
Prophecy in the News, August 2009, pg. 4
bb “Equal distribution” equals redistribution of the wealth. No national identity, state identity, cultural identity, political identity.
cc One world government, one currency, control over what is sold & bought.
B What does that have to do with Islam?
1 Everything, if you believe the Antichrist will come from a European or Mid-Eastern country, Islamic, controlled system of commerce.
a The system is being put in place-we (America) must be removed as the biggest kid on the block!
b Hit us where it hurts...the economy!
2 Prophecy tells us that in the 7 years prior to the return of Christ, there will be famine. When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come ." I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius , and three quarts of barley for a denarius ; and do not damage the oil and the wine." Rev 6:5-6 (NASB)
