Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
The Muslim Brotherhood has been identified as the bitter root from which the various branches of radical jihadi Islam have sprung. Since its founding in 1928 with the declared purpose of reviving the caliphate following the abolition of the Ottoman Empire, the philosophy which undergirds the movement has spawned death and destruction all over the globe.
It is well known for its motto “Islam is the Solution”, “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and dying in the way of Allah is our highest wish.”
In sharp contrast, we who are followers of Jesus Christ also rejoice in a brotherhood – it is that invisible and mystical union of life that binds all true born again believers together as one family in Christ. The Scriptures also give us some clear marching orders that might be summarized in this way:
Sin is the problem, Jesus Christ is the solution, His Gospel is our message, The Holy Spirit is our Enabler, His love is our motivation, and Turning men from death to eternal life is our goal.
Two mottos – one espouses death, the other, life!
