If America truly promotes pristine Christian values with the Bible as standards, there should be no execution of a law offender in the history of America.
Unlike Islam, “peaceful” Christianity is known for its “love your enemies” syndrome, the instruction in Matthew 5:39 that if someone slaps you, turn the other is no longer a secret. The climax of it all is the, “anyone who has not sinned should first cast a stone at her”. The foundations of peace in Christiandom are built on these.
Contrary to the new testament injunctions, America promotes principles that are not biblical though the average American Christian makes us realize America is a “Christian” nation.
Instead of playing the “love your enemies” card, America employs the eye for eye, tooth for tooth system which is partially in line the Shari’ah partially because the Shari’ah gives more grace to the offender as regards blood money etc.
America and the world at large have put the new testament to shame as even the most referred pastors, popes, bishops do not follow the judgment ordered by Jesus of the Bible.
Satirically, When Jesus of the Bible said in,
St. Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me on that day, ’Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’
St. Matthew 7:23 Then I will tell them plainly, ’I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
We can conclude that a further exposition of these verses suggests that Jesus of the Bible meant,
Away from me, O ye pastor that won’t forgive one who murders your father
Away from me, O Bishop that will not forgive one who ruins your business
Away from me, O Evangelist that cannot forgive one who rapes your mother, daughter and wife in your presence
Away from me, O ye Christian that joins the military to fight the aggressor, do you not know that you should not fight your enemies?
The Christians’ concept of peace is one that is based on self-delusion, hypocrisy and a denial of the natural sense of justice in man. The Shari’ah is based on justice other than punishment as the critics of Islam say and punishment is a branch of justice.
O ye Muslim! This path you are on is the right path, if knowledge of a thing in the Deen has not come to you, don’t leave your faith, ask those who know.
The unbeliever has no right to tell you what is barbaric or preposterous for your Deen was given to you by Allah, the creator of all that exists.
