Thoughts on The Ft. Hood Massacre

First of all, my heart goes out to all the families of those who lost loved ones in this truly terrifying act of cruelty. What a sad day for them. May God surround them with His love and protection as they try to make amends at this time in their lives. Good can come of tragedies such as these through Almighty God's undying love for His people.

It is hard at times, really, to make sense of it all, and why someone would commit to such a horrible act of violence. False assumptions can be made very easily when resorting to personal feelings, and is why we must rely on something greater than ourselves for the answers to the questions relating to matters such as these.

In a world filled with so many lies, we have the Word of the One which has stood the test of time, and His Word never fails.

Romans 1:22 states - "Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things."

When we show intellectual arrogance before Almighty God, we display a reversed sense of values; our worship is exchanged for devotion to man-made and man-reflecting idols. Our indelible sense of worship is perverted by being centered on the wrong object/objects. We then exchange everything that God has shown us for a lie. And this is undeniably what has happened in the realm of the violence being perpetrated by others of the Islamic faith, their faith being directed to a man-centered/reflected idol ... their idol, Muhammad.

The man who committed to this act of cruelty Nidal Malik Hasan, was said to have screamed "Allahu Akbar" just before firing on the soldiers there at the U.S. Army military base there in Ft. Hood Texas. What is the meaning of "Allahu Akbar"? According to those who follow the Islamic religion, it means "God is the greatest." Care must be taken not to associate God with the violence that this man committed, because God does not condone the act of murder in His name or any name. This man committed murder because of his idolization of the false prophet who was Muhammad; and rest assured, Muhammad was no prophet, but is an idol to many, and has perverted the thinking of many, and many more millions have been murdered through his murderous, rage-filled ideology. Islamics simply worship the wrong object, and it is sheer hypocrisy to proclaim God's name and then murder people as the Muslims do.

Muslims need to know that they have a Savior in whom they can be forgiven of their sin and have eternal life! They can discover that Jesus Christ died for their sins and rose from the grave to offer them Salvation, of which ... no amount of work or good deeds could buy. This new life God freely gives to all who call upon His name!

God bless you, and thank you for reading!

  1. Once again you are wrong. The difference between your christianist zealotry and the zealotry of a Muslum are irreducable. You both cloak a 13th century theologically rooted political ideology under the pretense of religion and both desire nothing more than to circumvent man made secular laws, rules and regulations and substitute them with "gods law" which is merely speculation at best and; more probably, an outright ancient hallucination. God: as a concept, is an idea of man and your faith is so weak that you have repeatedly and consistently suggested life ending violence towards anyone that you think (if you are actually capable of rational thinking) just might point out that you are an extremist in the worse sense. You make the members of the Westboro Church in Topeka, Kansas seem sane and rational. That's how sick you are. (As an aside,explain to me why it's OK to murder abortion Doctors under the rational of your fundementalist Christian religion but not OK for fundementalist Muslums to blow themselves for the same sort of fundementalist beliefs.) I can't count how many times have I read your comments on Blogsforvictory wherein you advocate killing people because they are not (in your narrow minded opinion) enough of a pathological christianist. The only difference between you and an Islamic extremist is that you lack the guts to actually pull a trigger or strap on a bomb. My suggestion to you, since you fundementally hate life so much with all its joys, sadness, wondering, doubt and conflict, is to find out for sure if you are correct. That way I won't have to spend anymore time alerting the FBI about your comments fomenting violence.

  2. Mr Ouspensky,
    You sound so much like the schizophrenics on the loose in the streets of America.
    You should spend more time in listening and understanding and reading what Jeremiah is posting and his regard for life and happiness. Instead It sounds that you mostly fear the Truth and for that its sad indeed.
    This terrorism act upon Ft Hood needs to be investigated by the FBI for sure. Have you reported this man to the FBI? Or are you too busy trying to belittle people like Mr Jeremiah and his good words (even though you may not agree with him), and its ok for you to spit out a hatred towards him and tell him he doesn't have guts.
    Well it very well shows me that like the liberal news Media in America won't tell you this was a terrorist act upon our soil and that this terrorist act by a fundamental 'terrorist' Islamist who was reared in teaching by a Mosque that just happened to be attended by the very terrorists who attacked this nation on 9/11.
    Have you reported this to the FBI?
    Have you asked them to investigate this particular person, and ask them to make linkage to all the people this man had contact with?
    So its not strange that this man attended the same Mosque, that this man praised Allah.
    He can worship whosoever he pleases sir, that's the great thing about America, but don't destroy those who disagree with you.
    The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is "YAHWEH" and have proven over and over his Love, His Mercy. I hope and pray that you will find this God I speak of and the God Jeremiah has spoken of and will ultimattely see that truly we can come together in agreement on some things.
    But because you don't agree ideologically or religiously, you can at least respect a person for his thoughts.
    For you i am praying.. "Praise"
    "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love for one another"
    The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob...

    Keep up the good work Jeremiah. Some may disagree but let it be known that we must stand for the Truth and some people truly hate the truth and what it stands for.
    God bless you

  3. Ouspensky,

    Please show me where I have said, or Christianity says for that matter, that "it's ok to murder abortionists".

    One is at the same level of reprehensibility as the other, and neither of them, both being the same act of breaking the law; that being murder, is condoned by Christianity.

    God's law does not condone murder.

    Exodus 20:13 - "You shall not murder" ... He also tell us in Genesis 9:6 that if we do murder that we should receive the death penalty by the authorities:

    "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image."

    Sounds pretty clear to me. God delegates this authority to us humans this judicial authority, and by laying a foundation for the government through the state. This correlates with Romans 13:1-7 which says - "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therfore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed."

    Although this is speaking to the government in general, it speaks on levels as it pertains to parents in the home and ministers in the church. Each sphere has its own authority under Christ.

    The authorities are here because of our fallen world, and they are instruments of God's "common grace" (kindly providence), standing as a bulwark against anarchy and the dissolution of ordered society.

    As for your remarks of discrimination against me, I do not wish to respond to them, I will let other testify in my stead. However, I will remind you that they will not be tolerated in the future. If you wish to comment on this site, you will need to learn to leave out the hate.

    God bless you, and thank you for commenting.

  4. Pensky (which is how I'll refer to you since the other part is too tedious and bothersome to write),

    Where, since you say there are so many instances of Jeremiah's promoting Christian hatred, are examples of Jeremiah condoning unlawful murder of Abortion doctors? Where are the examples of seditious talk that warrant calls to the FBI? Show me one. As the anonymous commentor said above, have you notified the FBI about the contacts of the Fort Hood killer? Furthermore, where is the seditious talk in this particular blog posting? You can post your examples in this thread, I'll come back and look. BlogsForVictory's database and Blog log is long and expansive. If there are so many I'm sure you can find just one.

    It seems to me that your problem is more deep seated than with what Jeremiah says, but rather his opinion. Just because it doesn't follow your own, you feel you can make threats against him to discourage him from spreading the truth. Well I can tell you friend, the truth will never be silenced. We are increasing more and more toward a communist society. But as long as men and women have breath in their bodies, the truth will never be stopped. You and your people rule because you've spread a veil of blind misconception, but the veil is being ripped asunder now, and the public opinion is showing. Through the protests, outcries, and phone lines tied up in Washington. Some congress people have even disconnected their phones temporarily due to the enormous volume of calls over this health care debate, but I'll move on.

    I have never seen Jeremiah condoning the unlawful murder of abortion doctors. He may condone enacting the death penalty against them, but that is another thing entirely. These men and women who perform these procedures are stealing one of the three fundamental beliefs from a person that America stands by: The pursuit of LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    You'll notice that life is first. Without life, the other two are unnatainable. Doesn't it seem logical, that murderers should receive the death penalty? Even a child of five or six years can tell you that. Life is a simple concept, anybody who hurts someone even in the simplest way is a bad person. How would a child react if you stabbed them with a knife? They would be very upset, audibly and else-wise. They would want that bad person to be taken away and punished.

    A great quote once said: "Freedom is born from the molds of truth, reason, and justice." Freedom is, as I said before, the Pursuit of the three basic principles: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Anyone who seeks to infringe upon those rights, deserves to be punished, it is called Justice. But what that quote fails to exemplify is the tasks associated with that Freedom. You see, Freedom isn't totally free.

    We have an obligation as citizens to defend it, practice it, and never abuse it. When someone seeks to or kills someone who is defending freedom, we have a responsibility to bring them to justice. And the punishment must fit the crime, as ordained in a court of law.

    And when someone seeks to prohibit or end a person's pursuit of life, the penalty is the same. So, you can see where this applies to unborn babies. They cannot defend themselves, so we as Americans have an obligation to defend them.

    I hope the concepts I've told you about were easy enough to understand.

    I hope you'll come to see the logic behind Jeremiah's thinking. Of course, you're an atheist so no form of logic will make sense to you until you have a change of heart. I'll pray for you, God can soften even the hardest of hearts with a little prayer... I know he did mine.

    Have a good evening/day, whichever it may be when you read this.

  6. There's radicals in all religions, and there's different nuts in every fruitcake. Unfortuantely we can't detain everybody; I feel that we should be wary and on the extreme watchcare of the Muslims who are in the services and who possibly worship with these radical Mosques. If it looks like a rattlesnake, then it must be a rattlesnake and if I fail to watch carefully in the pathway i'm trodden without watching particularly for one that just bit me then shame on me. I believe this terrorist should be throughly and completely investigated at any cost. And if the military fails to do this then take this matter before the American people and force the FBI, CIA and State Patrol, and other forces at their disposal. Its our lives at stake and we have been invaded and these terrorists are among us. George Bush called them sleeper-cells and i'm afraid the Democrats have fallen asleep in regards to the danger these people present to the American people. We are hated most forcefully because of our ties to the Jewish Nation and because our Foundational Believes are Christ given and Men and Women gave their lives in fighting for this cause and we must never waver and we must never fail. NOT ONCE. "PRAISE" truthisright


  8. Calvinists4Conservatism (Objective Scrutator),

    Doing great! And you?

    I do believe that we would have about as much success with detaining them as we would with trying to convert them. Nevertheless, I think we should try to show the love of Christ to them. If we were to detain and then execute those whom we disagree with, we would be no better than they in their pursuit for control by an Iron Fist. True, not all are going to accept God's good grace, but we still have this obligation to show this love that if accepted will grant them eternal life.

    God bless, and thank you for commenting!
