 Islamists' vision for sin-free tourism in Egypt




Islamists are dominating Egypt's elections and some of them have a new message for tourists: welcome, but no booze, bikinis or mixed bathing at beaches, please.

That vision of turning Egypt into a sin-free vacation spot could spell doom for a key pillar of the economy that has already been badly battered by this year's political unrest.

I think some fundamental Christians would be happy with this.

 Re:

I agree with martyr. If only this was what the saints were preaching and not what the Muslims are demanding. This is only dead religion.

 Re: Greg

Brother I must address a question to you. I only do this in light of your past post on women's apparel in church. Why are you posting this?

 Re: Islamists' vision for sin-free tourism in Egypt

Brothers,

It is such shame upon our Lord Christ’s face, that the Mohamedians "seem" to care more for outward righteousness than the great mass of professing western Christians do today. Alas, and for shame...

I am reminded how our western Churches once proclaimed with one voice that Islam was the “Second Woe” of the Book of Revelation, allowed by God to punish the idolatrous Christian churches of that time. And if the old Protestant view has any merit, it would seem that Islam is coming back for us today...

But what can be done?

Dear Christian; you who understand that you are saved by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ: Stop professing a supposed “liberty” to do as you please, for with regard to the commandments of Christ and His apostles in the New Testament, we bond-servants have none.

Dear Christian: Take the boast out of the Mohamedian’s mouth! Be not only righteous within, but also righteous without. If Jesus has wrought an amazing transformation inside, LET MEN SEE IT. Care not for what other Christians may do or say because you are “different.” Only, look to Jesus alone, and in righteousness, make intercession for the land. Be a light in the darkness.

Let Christ have the full measure of the Reward of His Suffering lived out in you, in all of your "conversation" or life. His Love for us, demands that we give our all in the struggle ahead...

"Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot..." I Peter 1:13-19


Let’s pray for each other in this spiritual battle, for we can do nothing against the kingdom of the devil, without the annointed grace of our Lord Jesus Christ upon us.

A fellow soldier in Christ Jesus,
Doug

 Re: To the Forum

Saints does anyone understand what Islamic Sharia law is? In its simplistic form it is legistic observance of the Koran in all area of a Moslem's life. The most extreme form of Sharia's observance are found in Sudan or Saudi Arabia. Sharia is used to dress the women in dress from head to toe. In extreme cases such as Afghanistan women could not venture outside of the home without a male family escort. Under the Talibhan women were locked in their homes with windows blacked out. In extreme cases women and children died because they coukd not get food. Women were denied the right to an education under Talibhan Sharia. To get an education was death. Imagine coming to Christ.

This is the sane Sharia that is putting to death thousands of Christians in restrictive Islamic nations. For Sharia says 'kill the nonbeliever unlesst he embrace Mohammed'.

I see nothing virtuous in what Egypt is doing. The goal of the Moslem Brotherhood is to turn Egypt and all of N. Africa into an Islamic caliphate. That caliphate to be ruled by Sharia.

This does not bode well for the followers of Christ. For I see that the sands of the Sahara will run red with the blood of Christian saints. Let us remember that it was religion that put Jesus to death. And Sharia is religion of the worst kind.

Dear Brother,

Amen Brother.

You wrote:

Amen. Sharia is sham-righteousness.

However, if God has made one truly righteous on the inside, the true Christian will truly seek to please Christ in every way on the outside.

Let's not get distracted then by what men do or don't do. For many stumble for this very reason: because they take their eyes off of Christ and his apostles, and begin comparing themselves with others.

Rather than make this mistake, let us instead LOOK to Christ and his apostles, and DO what they did. Paul said:

"Be ye followers of me, even as I also [am] of Christ. I Corinthians." 11:1

Let us follow the path of the apostles, for though they trode a narrow way, they assured us it was worth it.

Love in Christ Brother,
Doug

 Re: Doug

Brother I am in agreement with you. The righteousness of the believer is Christ working out through us the fruit of the Spirit and so forth. What I was calling attention on the forum were the dangers of Islamic sharia and the percieved commendable virtues it promoted.

One may travel to Egypt and commend the alcohol free hotels and segregated beach areas and dress codes. But unless one sees the demonic dynamic behind this system one can be hood winked. This same Sharia that promotes the above virtues (I say that tongue in cheek) also calls for the killing if the infidel. Translation Christians and Jews. Make no mistake Moslems hate Christians. Their own holy book says convert them or kill them. This is the danger of Islamic Sharia.

Let me be clear. The Moslem must be reached with the love of Christ. But let us not pretend their moral virtues are the same as a Christian who is governed by the Holy Spirit.

Amen dear Brother... Much of Sharia is just wicked Statism, but regarding the outward righteousness the muslim tries to impose through the power of the flesh, let the Christian rather gloriously accomplish in the Spirit.

By outward righteousness we,

Take the boast out of the Mohamedian’s mouth. Be not only righteous within, (therefore) but also righteous without. If Jesus has wrought an amazing transformation inside:

LET MEN SEE IT.

Be well,
Doug

Brother, I am in total agreement with you but how is it exactly do you want “true Christians” to live? Like you live? Or more holy than you live? Or less holy than you live?

Are you talking about a life of giving and loving others or a life of wearing long sleeves and knee length dresses and such? With 60+ guests on here, let’s pin-point exactly what it is you deem worthy to set men apart.

Quote:

Brother, I know the truth of what you are saying BUT herein lays the deception brother... When we keep our eyes upon man and THEIR righteousness, we will always come out more righteous and cleaner than others.

Question: who will be the watch-dog over what a “true Christian” is? It doesn’t sound like the Holy Spirit and then here we are, right where the Muslims are, commandeering all forms of dress for women when they don’t even police a the males’ heart condition.

Just my two cents and please know that I am not angry at your answers, I just thought they needed addressing.

God bless you, brother,
Lisa
