You know what they are. They’re usually full of angels, prayers and “Jesus loves you’s.”
My father, of all people, sends them to me. Usually I don’t respond to them at all, just politely open it and move on. Today in the mail bag I received something that I could just not ignore. You may have seen it before.
Allah or the Lord Jesus Christ?
This is interesting. The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States , especially in the minority races!!!
Allah or the Lord Jesus Christ? ….. By Rick Mathes
Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for
maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training
session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the
Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.
The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for Questions and Answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: ‘Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and Clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
There was no disagreement with my statements and, Without hesitation, he replied, ‘non-believers! ‘
I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers
Of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of ‘a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’
He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’
I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope
Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr.
Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee
them a place in heaven!’
The Imam was speechless!
I continued, ‘I also have problem with being your ‘friend’ when you and your brother clerics are e telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question. Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the
‘Diversification¢ training seminar were not happy with Rick’s way of
dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President! I think everyone in the U.S.should be required to read this, but with the liberal justice system, liberal media and the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized.
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a Well-known leader in prison ministry. The man who walks with God always gets to his destination.

Now, this was a bit over too over the top for me. I forwarded it to my Personal Atheist, who responded with a resounding “UGH.” He pointed me towards this piece at snopes.com.
I did a “reply to all” and responded to my father, everyone he sent it to and made sure I sent it to the person I who sent it to my dad. I share it with you below.
Thank you for sending this along.
Just so you know, this supposedly took place in May 2003. The people who coordinated this effort could not find an imam to speak, so they got an lay person who happened to be an inmate from the prison. The inmate did a good job in presenting his beliefs though there were a few questions that were beyond his ability to answer.
If you follow the link below, you will find the story behind the story and what your friend passed along doesn’t match. Whether your friend knows it or not, this kind of email breeds fear and hate. There is way too much of it in this world already.
Jesus caused a commotion everywhere he went, but he never spread fear or hate. Unfortunately, spreading fear and hate is something that many of us who claim to be his followers, many of us Christians have become very good at.
Here is the link. Please read it, and feel free to share it with anyone.
My father’s response back to me: “thank you for telling the truth.”
