USA: les églises ne sont plus sur le déclin

Nous entendons souvent parler des églises qui ferment leurs portes aux Etats-Unis mais certains peuvent être surpris d’entendre que le nombre total d’églises n’est plus en déclin.
Un changement important s’est produit ces dernières années, selon les chercheurs Ed Stetzer et Warren Bird. Après des décennies de déclin net, plus d’églises aux États-Unis sont ouvertes chaque année que  fermées.

Le mérite en revient en grande partie à l’augmentation récente de l’enthousiasme pour l’implantation d’églises. Stetzer, qui dirige LifeWay recherche, dit que l’implantation d’église est devenue la dernière mouvance et l’évangélisation nouvelle.

Burqa:le conseil d'état s'oppose à une interdiction totale

C’est une décision qui risque de compliquer encore un peu plus la tâche du gouvernement. Selon des informations du Figaro du 14 mai, le Conseil d’Etat a émis un “avis défavorable” au projet de loi du gouvernement visant à interdire complètement le port du voile intégral. Dans un avis consultatif rendu mercredi, les Sages auraient jugé qu’“une interdiction absolue et générale du port du voile intégral en tant que telle ne pourrait trouver aucun fondement juridique incontestable” et qu’elle serait “exposée à de fortes incertitudes constitutionnelles et conventionnelles”.

Allah is a demon

Allah, a demon?

The Satanic Verses in Qur’an

Sura an-Najm (Star) 53:19-22

When Muhammad and his community came under severe persecution, eighty-three of his followers who had no protection emigrated from Mecca to Ethiopia, taking refuge in the ancient Christian country, Abyssinia.1 Under increasing boycotts and pressure, Muhammad went through a time of weakness and accepted a compromise by acknowledging the existence of three pagan goddesses alongside Allah: Lat, Uzza, and Manat.2 The account of this is in Sura an-Najm (Star) 53:19-22.

This indirect confession of polytheism, with the statement that Allah was involved with female goddesses while Muhammad and his people were left with men, was cynically discussed by author Salman Rushdi. He made the impure account even more obscene. Therefore, his book was regarded as blasphemous by all Muslims.

When the inhabitants of Mecca heard the confession of Muhammad about the existence of the ancient goddesses inside the Kaba, they immediately revoked their ban on him. Those who had emigrated to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) started to return home after hearing about Muhammad’s confession and the changes in Mecca. But when they arrived, they were shocked to hear that Muhammad regretted his confession and that he considered it as falling prey to the whispering of Satan. Thus, today Islam considers Sura an-Najm (Star) 53:19-22 as the Satanic Verses, rejected afterwards by Muhammad. Salman Rushdi did not invent these verses. They have been in the Qur’an since its inception.

In Sura Hajj (Pilgrimage) 22:52-53, Muhammad confessed his mistake, supposing that all prophets were tempted by Satan who would inspired them with his verses, as if they were actually revealed by God. But later on Allah abrogated these Satanic Verses with new revelations and judges his people according to these new verse. In Islam Allah permits such demonic inspiration to test weak Muslims or to cut off those with hardened hearts.

Never did We send a messenger or a prophet before thee, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some (vanity) into his desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in, and Allah will confirm (and establish) His Signs: for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom:
That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, but a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease and who are hardened of heart: verily the wrong-doers are in a schism far (from the Truth): Hajj (Pilgrimage) 22:52-53. Yusuf ‘Ali’s translation

The true, vital issue about the Satanic verses in the Qur’an is this. If Muhammad were unable to distinguish Satan’s voice from God’s voice, could there then be verses in the Qur’an which Muhammad assumed were from God but were really from Satan? Maybe the whole Qur’an is Satanic in origin, in spite of Muhammad’s conviction that it was Allah who revealed the suras to him.

In Islam, the angel Gabriel is regarded as the Holy Spirit. For Muslims, no Holy Spirit exists as described in the Gospel. They believe that the spirit of God was originally created like angels and demons. The Muslim’s spirit of God has a beginning in time. There is no guidance by the spirit, no comfort, no everlasting life, and no spirit of Truth, because the Holy Spirit is only considered to be the Angel Gabriel.

The spirit in Islam, therefore, is not a divine one, but a spirit effecting deep devotion, repetitive worship, many prayers, fasting, almsgiving, and pilgrimages (Hajj). But there is no life or true Holy Spirit. There is only death.

You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?
Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?
Have you suffered so much for nothing– if it really was for nothing?
Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard? Galatians 3:1-5 (NIV)

The god of Islam is a demon who appropriated for himself the name of Allah. By means of deep religiosity and devotion, this Allah has bound more than a billion Muslims in religious slavery, barring them from the gift of salvation in Christ. Indeed he has vaccinated them against understanding the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
