Islam is a Satanic delusion used to drive people from the Gospel. We certainly view it is as a deadly enemy of the truth. However, certain “Christian” conservatives in America frequently use criticism of Islam and Sharia law as an indirect attack on God’s law as revealed in the Bible.
The Bible clearly states that both adultery and homosexuality are capital offenses.
“And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.“ (Leviticus 20:10)
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.“ (Leviticus 20:13)
It is therefore an affront to God to criticize governments for following these clear commandments, and yet this is exactly what self-professed Christians are doing today.
Brunei recently announced that adultery and sodomy will become capital crimes in the small Islamic nation. In response to this news Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that “This is wrong. It is barbaric. America should condemn this immoral and inhumane law, and everyone should be united against it.” Was God almighty immoral when he revealed his law to his people?
If we are to please God, we must share in the attitude towards his holy law that was expressed by his prophet David:
“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.“
The commandments of Leviticus so hated by Christians today are perfect, true and righteous, and sweeter than honey. May all Christians come to accept God’s law and have the same pious attitude expressed by David.
