American Secretary of State John Kerry Says "If Allah Wills It"

 John Kerry told reporter Laura Rozen this weekend 
that a nuclear deal with Iran is possible, "Inshallah." 
In the previous post we looked at U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry answering a question about if there will be a nuclear deal with Iran with the phrase "Inshallah," which means, "If Allah wills it."

Isn't what John Kerry said offensive to the One True God (who is not Allah)? Some say Christians and Jews worship the same God as the Muslims but this is not true. The God of the Bible is not the same as Allah. The God of the Bible is about love and life and protecting the truth in the revelation of who He is. (Tweet that!) In contrast, Allah apparently instructs the hatred and death, beheading, drowning, bombing, terrorist's acts and other forms of killing Christians and Jews. 

Christians know and believe the One True God came in human flesh as Jesus the Nazarene. Jesus IS God. Ask any Muslim if they worship Jesus as God. They do not, proving we do not worship the same God. (Tweet that!)

Muslims will say Jesus is a "prophet," an equal to Muhammad. Jesus was not "just a prophet." Jesus is God, come in human flesh, who died and is alive again. (Tweet that!) In contrast, Muhammad is dead.

When John Kerry, the Secretary of State of the United States, says "if Allah wills it," what is he doing?!

He could be trying to connect with the people he is in company with at those negotiations: Muslims. (Tweet that!)

He could be ignorant of the important differences between Allah, the god of Muslims who chant "Death to America," and the One True God of Heaven and all the earth, but I doubt it. As a Catholic* he should know better. (Tweet that!)

Does he think and believe his praise to Allah has power? Or that it has no power? (Tweet that!)

It is "praise," because his use of this phrase puts Allah in the position of God Almighty – instead of relying on the One True God, the God of the Bible in whom belief in the United States of America was founded on.  

So what do you think? Is it really that important what a leader of the United States says about God? (Tweet that!) Does a pronouncement like this make a difference to anyone or in anything having to do with our nation?

Yes, it matters. Big time. It matters more than most people can even imagine.

There is power in words. The Bible is God's Word. And Jesus, who embodies everything the Bible says, is The Word personified.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-2, 14)

This is talking about the Man, Jesus.

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45)

We can see what is truly in a person's heart, what he believes by what comes out his or her mouth.

It's not the first time John Kerry, or others in the highest leadership positions in the United States of America, has spoken out in defiance of the One True God of the Bible. (Tweet that!) It is so important for you to be aware of these statements that we're going to look at these spiritual pronouncements in a series of posts starting next Tuesday. (Tweet that!) (New articles here on the blog are posted Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.)

*But first, my next post on Saturday will give some background on John Kerry himself. Did you know the Catholic John Kerry has Jewish blood? Come back on Thursday to learn more. And please bring a friend.
