FORMER JORDANIAN MINISTER: ISLAM WILL SEIZE ROME & AMERICA WILL COME TO AN END


EXCERPTS FROM
CNA- "A former Jordanian minister has seized upon commentary about the decline of Western power, saying on Arabic-language television that Islam will conquer Rome. He went on to say that Spain is an Islamic land that should be retaken and that America has begun to realize its “end is near.”

"The remarks by former Jordanian Minister of Religious Endowment Ali Al-Faqir were broadcast on Al-Aqsa TV on May 2.

"According to a transcript prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Al-Faqir said Palestine from the Jordan to the Mediterranean is an Islamic land. “Spain – Andalusia – is also the land of Islam,” he said.

“Islamic lands that were occupied by the enemies will once again become Islamic. Furthermore, we will reach beyond these countries, which are lost at one point. We proclaim that we will conquer Rome, like Constantinople was conquered once, and as it will be conquered again.

“America has occupied, thundered, and foamed with rage, and proclaimed, like

VATICAN IN SECRET TALKS TO BUILD CATHOLIC CHURCHES IN SAUDI ARABIA

The Vatican has been holding secret talks with Saudi Arabian authorities to build Catholic churches in Muhammad's homeland. According to one of Pope Benedict's most senior Middle East representatives. Archbishop Paul-Mounged El-Hashem the Papal Nuncio to Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Yemen and Bahrain said: "Discussions are under way to allow the construction of churches in the kingdom. We cannot forecast the outcome."

The Vatican and Saudi Arabia do not have diplomatic relations. However, Archbishop El-Hashem said that moves towards diplomatic ties began after an unprecedented visit to the Vatican last November by King Abdullah. This would involve negotiations for the “authorisation of the building of Catholic churches” in Saudi Arabia, he said.

"But, speaking to the news agency Agence France-Presse, the Lebanese prelate, the Pope's envoy in the Gulf, added: "There are around three or four million Christians in Saudi Arabia, and we hope they will have churches."

At the Vatican, the Pope's spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, said: "If we manage to obtain authorisation for the construction of the first church, it will be an outcome of historic dimensions."

The opening last Friday of the

THERE IS NO RELIGION CALLED CHRISTIANITY --JUST THE CHURCH OF CHRIST AND THE ANTI-CHRIST

Hillaire Belloc in his commentary on Modernism as a heresy states:  "[t]here is no such thing as a religion called "Christianity" - there never has been such a religion". 

"There is and always has been the Church, and various heresies proceeding from a rejection of some of the Church's doctrines by men who still desire to retain the rest of her teaching and morals.  But there never has been and never can be or will be a general Christian religion professed by men who all accept some central important doctrines, while agreeing to differ about others.  There has always been from the beginning and will always be the Church, and sundry heresies either doomed to decay, or, like Mohammedanism, to grow into a separate religion.  Of a common Christianity there never has been and never can be a definition, for it has never existed." 

Belloc goes on to state, "[t]here is no essential doctrine such that if we can agree upon it we can agree to differ about the rest:  as for instance to accept immorality but deny the Trinity.   A man will call himself a Christian though he denies the
unity of the Christian Church; he will call

BRTISH TEACHER ARRESTED & FACES 40 LASHES FOR NAMING TEDDY BEAR MOHAMED

From Dailymail: A British teacher is facing 40 lashes from a Sharia court in Sudan where she has been accused of insulting Islam by naming a teddy bear Mohamed.

Gillian Gibbons, 54, was being interrogated at a police station in the capital Khartoum today.

She had been working at one of the city's exclusive British schools for the past three months since giving up her job in Liverpool.

Twenty out of 23 pupils voted for Mohamed, which is also the name of one of the most popular boys in the class.

Mrs Gibbons had wanted to call the bear Faris but was overruled by the children, said a teacher who asked not to be named.

Children were asked to take the teddy home each

THE NAME OF JESUS-THE NAME WHICH IS ABOVE ALL NAMES


The recent advice from a dissident cleric in the Netherlands who suggested that peace between Islam and Christianity could be obtained by calling our Lord and Savior "Allah", is not only futile but wicked. While this cleric seeks to compromise the Word of God to appease the violent and heretical, God's people are perishing for lack of knowledge of the power and value of Jesus' name. God does indeed care what we call Him

St Paul tells us that "Jesus" is
"a name above all names".

And that
"in the name of Jesus, every knee shall bend in Heaven, on earth and in Hell" (Phil.2:10).

Further
"there is salvation in the Name of Jesus and...there is no salvation in any other name except that Name." (Acts 4:12.)

But why is Jesus name so powerful?

Because He is God made man. The incarnation is a mind-boggling concept that is unique to Christianity. That the Creator of Heaven and Earth would actually humble Himself to not only become one of us, but willingly sacrifice Himself to appease the Father for our transgressions is beyond comprehension without
