BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU PICK YOUR FRIENDS
The Muslim religion in the fastest growing religion per capita in the United

Allah or Jesus? 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 belief systems.

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 go to 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 gotten 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 John
Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley
ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to Heaven!\"

The imam was speechless.

I continued, \"I also have problem with being your friend when you and your
brother clerics are 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 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 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 Muslim\'s belief.

I think everyone in the US 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. Please pass this on to all your email contacts.
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in
prison ministry.
