Christianity Compared to Islam

 Our Lord Yeshua/Jesus states:

 Matthew 25:31
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then  He will sit upon His glorious throne,

Matthew 25:32
and all the nations will be gathered into His presence. And He will separate them from one another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats;

Matthew 25:33
and will make the sheep stand at His right hand, and the goats at His left.

Matthew 25:34
"Then the King will say to those at His right, "'Come, my Father's blessed ones, receive your inheritance of the Kingdom which has been divinely intended for you ever since the creation of the world.

Matthew 25:35
For when I was hungry, you gave me food; when I was thirsty, you gave me drink; when I was homeless, you gave me a welcome;

Matthew 25:36
when I was naked, you clothed me; when I was sick, you visited me; when I was in prison, you came to see me.'

Matthew 25:37
"'When, Lord,' the righteous will reply, 'did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you drink?

Matthew 25:38
When did we see you homeless, and give you a welcome? or naked, and clothe you?

Matthew 25:39
When did we see you sick or in prison, and come to see you?'

Matthew 25:40
"But the King will answer them, "'In solemn truth I tell you that in so far as you rendered such services to one of the humblest of these my brethren, you rendered them to myself.'

Matthew 25:41
"Then will He say to those at His left, "'Begone from me, with the curse resting upon you, into the Fire of the Ages, which has been prepared for the Devil and his angels.

Matthew 25:42
For when I was hungry, you gave me nothing to eat; when thirsty, you gave me nothing to drink;

Matthew 25:43
when homeless, you gave me no welcome; naked, you clothed me not; sick or in prison, you visited me not.'

Matthew 25:44
"Then will they also answer, "'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or homeless or ill-clad or sick or in prison, and not come to serve you?'

Matthew 25:45
"But he will reply, "'In solemn truth I tell you that in so far as you withheld such services from one of the humblest of these, you withheld them from me.'

Matthew 25:46
"And these shall go away into the Punishment of the Ages, but the righteous into the Life of the Ages."

Actions speak louder than words. If you want to see what Islam is like, see what Arafat is doing to Christians on the right.

Pray Christ comes soon!

Christian Tribulation in the Holy Land

ArafatSince Arafat was appointed governor of Bethlehem in 1995, Christians are being exterminated in all Islam controlled territories. These are a few of the actions of self-appointed PLO  Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat :

1. Arafat fired the Bethlehem city council -- 9 Christians and 2 Moslem -- and replaced it with a 50%-50% council.

2. He has removed Christians from all security and political positions. Bethlehem is run by the local Moslem Fatah leader and his cronies.

3. The PLO has seized the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem.

4.  Arafat  has increased persecution of  the Greek-Orthodox, the Armenian, the Latin and the Franciscan Order in East Jerusalem.

5. Abraham's Oak Russian Holy Trinity Monastery in Hebron was seized by the PLO on July 5, 1997 (AP), savagely evicting the monks and nuns. Several of the monks and nuns required hospitalization.

6. The PLO has seized a Greek Orthodox monastery, located next to the Church of Nativity, and transformed it into Arafat's official residence in Bethlehem.

7. Christian churches, convents, monasteries, and cemeteries  have been desecrated,  telephone lines cut, windows and sculptures blasted, some of their land confiscated as well as the land of Christian members. 

8. Arafat incites anti-Christian rallies. The PLO is yelling: "After we do away with the Saturday People, we will take care of the Sunday People,"

9. He interrupts Christian services. Loudly magnified Moslem sermons have been aired during Christian services, including the April 2000 Pope's address in Bethlehem.

10. Arafat has constructed two taller mosques, Al Khanqa and Abdul Malek, contiguous to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

11. Christian women have been intimidated by PLO terrorists, since Arafat's takeover of Bethlehem  in 1995, and accused of wearing "permissive" Western clothing. There is harassment and even torture of Christian converts.

12. Rape of Christian women has occurred frequently (especially in Beit Sakhur)

13. Christians who dare speak out against  PLO oppression, are accused of  "collaboration"  with Israel, and face execution.

14. According to former Senator Connie Mack (R-FL), "[A Palestinian Christian] was arrested and detained [by the PLO] on charges of selling land to Jews. He denied the charge, since he owned no land. He was beaten and hung from the ceiling by his hands for many hours. After two weeks, he was transferred to a larger prison where he was held for eight months without trial... These Christians conveyed to me a message of fear and desperation." (Senate speech, March 3, 2000) http://www.aish.com/jewishissues/middleeast
