John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, had Islam’s number…and he was most definitely not politically correct. More religious leaders should follow his lead and develop a backbone. It would make this struggle a lot easier. Read Strider the Ranger’s commentary on Wesley below- Burkasrugly
In the 18th Century John Wesley founded what is known today as the Methodist Church. The only larger Protestant Church in America today are the Southern Baptists. Methodists in the United States have 8,000,000 plus adherents. It might be worthwhile to understand how the founder of the Methodist Church felt about the Islam of his day.
“Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations vanished from the earth ! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.” (John Wesley)
Most Methodists are good, God-fearing folks who read their Bibles and try their best to follow Christ. But some Methodists, particularly the leadership, have caught the deadly virus of Political Correctness. They have imbibed the Kool-Aid that all religions are equal, have the same goals and worship the same God. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Islam is the only one of the major world religions that does not have some form of the Golden Rule. It is the only religion that routinely endorses the use of violence to promote forceful conversion. It the only of the world religions to teach a master race version of Islamic supremacy, thus denying the equality of men before God. It is the only religion that uses the tools of murder, rape and torture to enforce loyalty to the brutal legal code called Sharia.
Please Methodist ministers follow the advice of your founder, the great John Wesley, and speak out against the outrages of Islam from your pulpits. Speak the truth about Mohammed. Once again, truly become the shepherds of your flocks guarding them against false teaching.
All Christians and Jews must unite in purpose against the resurgence of a militant Islam with its renewed sense of world conquest. Christians, Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestants, must stand as one against this murderous ideology. If only Christians would wake up to this looming peril the world could be saved from much future pain.
