I’m sure you have heard about the pastor in Florida who was planning to burn 200 Quran’s on Sept. 11. A supposed memorial to the Sept 11th attacks in the manner of his “Islam is of the Devil” ministry. Well, apparently he decided to not burn the Quran’s, and claims that he has struck a deal with the Imam to move the ground zero mosque blocks away from the original site. And that claim has been denied by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the ground zero mosque.
While I don’t agree with the mosque being built in down town Manhattan largely because I think it smells of something larger than simply a religious bridge building project, and I certainly don’t think anyone should be burning Quran’s as part of a demonstration of hatred… I equally loath the political and spiritual game Pastor Jones is playing in Gainesville. I call BS to this guys entire way of living out his Christianity, and I believe the entire thing is a stunt that he has now deemed his 15 minutes of fame! I say your 15 minutes are about done Jones, you have been measured and weighed and found wanting. Your 15 minutes are killing me and millions of others who are forced to watch you murder the name and person of Jesus Christ! This guy is a joke and I hope he gets off the stage as a representative of Jesus Christ. Burn what you want bro, do whatever it is you think is right… but PLEASE for the love of God, quite doing any of it in the name of our savior Jesus!
Here is a glimpse into his game and hypocrisy. The guy is going to burn Quran’s because he sees the religion as a religion of hate and violence and sells “Islam is of the Devil” hats, mugs, and T-shirts on his web-site, complete with his book adorning the same title. BUT, in the latest news conference during his 15 minutes of fame the pastor said this in response to the claim that Imam Rauf never agreed to move the Mosque in response to them not burning the Quran. In fact Imam Rauf says he has never spoken to Jones.
“I asked him three times, and I have witnesses,” Jones said. “If it’s not moved, then I think Islam is a very poor example of religion. I think that would be very pitiful. I do not expect that.”
One minute Islam is of the Devil and he is going to burn their holy book, and the next thing out of his mouth is that he doesn’t expect the Imam to go against his word, because it would prove Islam to be a poor example of religion?
If you can figure this guy out, please let me know!
I said it before and I’ll say it again, I hope Pastor Jones gets off the stage as a representative of Jesus Christ because the more I see and hear him, the more I want to vomit.
Lord, help me show grace and mercy, I need your grace and mercy!
Grace and Peace
