Happy Armed Forces Day! On May 20 we celebrate all five military branches: Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard. See inspirational Bible sayings about what the Word of God says about our Armed Forces.

Armed Forces Day comes after Armed Forces Week. Armed Forces Week begins the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May. Armed Forces Day is always the third Saturday in May. Both Armed Forces Day and Armed Forces Week fall during Military Appreciation Month which includes Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Victory in Europe Day (V-E Day), according to Military.com.

Victory in Europe Day is on May 8 and is the date that the Nazis formerly surrendered to the Allies of World War II. Military Spouse Appreciation Day is May 12.

The celebrations come before Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day remembers the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.


1. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
From heaven the Lord looks down
and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.
No king is saved by the size of his army;
no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you. – Psalm 33:12-22


2. “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ…” – Philippians 3:20


3. “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.” – Romans 13:1-5


4. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” – 1 Timothy 2:1-3


5. “Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.” – 1 Peter 2:17


6. “…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14


7. “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” – John 15:13


8. “This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” – Romans 13:6-7


9. “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” – 1 Peter 2:9-10


10. “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:33

  1. THE REAL CRUX OF ISLAM
    .
    .
    Revelation 19: 11-16 reads…
    Christ on a White Horse

    11) Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12) His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had[a] a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13) He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14) And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15) Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16) And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. [New King James Version]

    Preface
    .
    .
    The REAL CRUX of Islam, is the Muslim/ Islamic CONFUSION over who Muhammad actually was, and WHY he introduced his “DOCTRINE” to the world! And!… if properly assessed and addressed, and our P-R-O-O-F-S of/ for the basis of/ for this confusion communicated to Muslim/ Islamic peoples through our global institutions!… and, likewise, to the rest of our inquiring communities worldwide!… our planet would realize a remarkable change!
    .
    This matter of “RADICALIZATION”, is– to me!– a R-E-A-L PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE!… when an entire “faith population” on our planet is living under the DELUSION that a would-be, self- styled “faith leader’s” “religion”, IS SANCTIONED BY GOD! And, it’s akin to our populations centuries ago, when millions of people believed the world was flat! And it was NO LESS a PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERN back then, than what the global Muslim/ Islamic “PISTIOPATHY (from the Greek word, Pistis)” is today! Simply put, when people around the world began to realize that the earth was indeed round, then the societal worldview began to evolve for the better!… and the “para-dogmas” structured around the old way of seeing the world, no longer had value, and social acceptance!
    .
    ALL OF US ARE STUPID OF MANY THINGS!… and, if we could– somehow– learn of that of which we are inherently stupid, our lives would improve!… dramatically!!
    .
    The ensuing personal findings, and resolve, are– I suggest!– the “T-A-C-T-I-C-A-L F-R-O-N-T L-I-N-E” that the “international community of interests” should be employing and deploying in their respective, and collective campaign/ s, re Muslim/ Islamic indoctrination!… AND!… for use against the likes of ISIS! And– I suggest!– should be used in place of any anticipated Trumpian and GOPic “REACTIONS” to any ISISic aggressions! And, in the process of REACTING to such, causing further “COLLATERAL DAMAGE”!… and continued impetus for the “PSEUDOCAUSE” of “PSEUDO-MUSLIM/ PSEUDO-ISLAMIC” EXTREMISTS, AND THEIR EXTREMISM!!
    .
    And so… for those who may wonder about Islam… and its place in the world!… I offer you the following…
    .
    .
    Jesus Christ and Muhammad
    .
    .
    In an attempt to ascertain the Biblical TRUTH concerning the veracity of the “claims” attributed to the said prophet Muhammad (by whomever, and whenever), and afterupon my examination of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and the Quran, I happened upon a couple of remarkable Chapters, and their Verses, within the New Testament’s Book of Luke (although, found elsewhere, within the New Testament!), attributed to Jesus Christ!
    .
    In Chapter 16, Verse 16, we read:… “The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed UNTIL (my emphasis) John (i.e., John the Baptist!).”… and… within the Book of Luke, Chapter 7, Verse 28, we read:… “I say to you, among those born of women, there is NO ONE GREATER (my emphasis) than John (i.e., John the Baptist!)”! [Gideons Translation]
    .
    Simply stated, if the claim on page 8 of the book titled, The Quran Translated: Message For Humanity, is correct (and, which reads:… “… Being the last of these Prophets, Muhammad was to be God’s FINAL Messenger!…”… and thus, ULTIMATE Messenger!), then, the words attributed to Christ within the Book of Luke, Chapter 7, Verse 28 are UNTRUE! And so!… revealing Christ as “CONFUSED”– at best!… or worse!… A LIAR! But!… if the words of Christ within the Book of Luke, Chapter 7, Verse 28, and within Chapter 16, Verse 16, are TRUE!… then!… not only was Muhammad NOT the greatest of the Prophets, he (Muhammad!)– AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY!– COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A PROPHET, A-T A-L-L (i.e., as such are described within the pages of the Holy Bible!)! For!… and apart from Christ’s words in Luke 7: 28 (extolling praise, glory, and the SEAL OF FINALITY on John the Baptist!)… how could the Law and the Prophets be up UNTIL John, yet– nevertheless!– a subsequent prophet (and yea!… supposedly!… THE GREATEST PROPHET!) is revealed some six hundred years after the fact, of the time of Christ (see, Quran, CH 33: 41… and note: With the exception of Ahmadi Muslims, “Khatamu ’n-Nabiyyīn”– “Seal of the Prophets”!– is interpreted by Muslims to mean, that Muhammad was the last of the prophets sent by God!… i.e., the God, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!)?
    .
    And thus, the “battle”… then!… OBVIOUSLY!… is between the claims PROFFERED by this self-styled prophet of God (Muhammad!), and the claims CLEARLY ATTRIBUTED to Jesus Christ! And as for the said appearance of Archangel Gabriel to Muhammad to bestow upon Muhammad a SPECIAL PROPHETIC DISPENSATION (as outlined in the work, The Quran Translated: Message For Humanity!), such an act by Gabriel (something not mentioned in the Bible!) would put Gabriel in conflict with the words, and will, of Jesus Christ!… and– ultimately!– in conflict with GOD! And so, I-F the said prophet Muhammad did in fact receive a visit from an Angel, I’d strongly assert that that Angel, was someone OTHER, than Gabriel!
    .
    And so!… there can be only ONE!… C-L-E-A-R!… resolve to this “epistemologic dilemma”!:… either Jesus Christ, or Muhammad, was “CONFUSED”!… or!… A LIAR! For!… God is not “confused”!… and God is not a liar! And!… as there is O-V-E-R-W-H-E-L-M-I-N-G E-V-I-D-E-N-C-E for the veracity of the claims put forward by Jesus Christ (e.g., the scientific evidence found at, h-t-t-p-s://www(dot)youtube(dot)com/watch?v=eCtDqCuhWNM), the “CONFUSION”!… or, DISHONESTY!… ISN’T CHRIST’S! As 1 John 2: 22 states (a verse, prepared 600 years before the “advent” of Muhammad!):… “Who is the liar? It is W-H-O-E-V-E-R D-E-N-I-E-S that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the A-N-T-I-C-H-R-I-S-T!– denying the FATHER, and the Son.” [NIV] And further, Acts 4: 12 states (a further verse prepared 600 years before the “advent” of Muhammad!):… “Salvation exists in NO ONE ELSE, for there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given to men (and including the name, Muhammad!) by which we must be saved.” [Berean Study Bible]
    .
    .
    GOP Radicalization
    .
    .
    But with regard to the “CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE R-E-A-C-T-I-O-N” to Islam, generally!… and regarding the view of the “self-avowed/ averred” “CHRISTIAN RIGHT (and its supporters… e.g., the said, ‘Christian Right-wing GOP’!)”, that T-H-E-S-E have a “DEVINE/ SACROSANCT DISPENSATION (i.e., one ‘blessed by God’!… AND YEA, ‘A RIGHT AT THE HEART OF THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST’!… leaving aside for the moment, those claiming a ‘SACROSANCT HUMAN RIGHT’!– in deference to the non-Christian, Humanist members of the GOP!)” to bare arms in defence of themselves (e.g., against the likes of ISIS!)!… and, IN “DEFENCE” OF THE DOWNTRODDEN OF THE WORLD!… such– I suggest!– is S-U-S-P-E-C-T! And!… begs the question:… “IS THEIR ‘DEVINE POSTURE’ AND ‘DEFENSIVE POSITION’ JUSTIFIED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST?” Well… let us examine (i.e., those who profess Christ!… but!… etc.!) a few further New Testament passages, to find out!
    .
    In Matthew Chapter 05, Verse 38, Christ states: “You’ve heard that it has been said: ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, THAT YOU NOT RESIST (PHYSICALLY CONTEND WITH!) EVIL: WHOSOEVER SHALL HIT YOU ON ONE CHEEK, TURN TO THAT ONE, ALSO, THE OTHER.” In Matthew Chapter 10, Verse 16, Christ states, “Be aware!… I send you out AS SHEEP, in the midst of wolves; therefore, be as wise as serpents, BUT HARMLESS, AS DOVES.”
    .
    Next, the ensuing is a question put to Christ from a Pharisaic lawyer… in an attempt to catch Jesus in some act of pompous pontification, and religious sophistry! In Matthew, Chapter 22, Verse 36, the Pharisaic lawyer asks: “Master, which is the GREAT COMMANDMENT in the Law?”; V37) Jesus said unto him, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND”; V38) “THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT”; V39) “AND THE SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT!… ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR, AS YOURSELF'”; V40) “ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS, H-A-N-G A-L-L T-H-E L-A-W, A-N-D T-H-E P-R-O-P-H-E-T-S!”
    .
    Next, are the words of Paul to the Ephesians, concerning the Christian’s struggle with evil: In Ephesians Chapter 06, Verse 12, Paul states: “FOR WE (CHRISTIANS!) W-R-E-S-T-L-E N-O-T A-G-A-I-N-S-T F-L-E-S-H A-N-D B-L-O-O-D; BUT, AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.”
    .
    Next, in advance of His anticipated sojourn to the Garden of Gethsemene, Jesus sought to convey an important message to His entourage– and, to all others who might bear witness (then, and in the future!)!– about the error of physically resisting/ contending with evil, in an effort to vanquish it! And!… in His preparation!… set in motion the ensuing means, whereby, His message to be told, could be manifest!
    .
    In Luke, Chapter 22, Verse 36, Christ states to His entourage:… “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it!… and likewise, a knapsack! And let the one who has no sword, sell his cloak, and buy one (a sword!)”; V37) “For I tell you, that this Scripture must be fulfilled… in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.'” “For what is written about Me, has its fulfillment”; V38) And they said (those with Christ!): “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And He (Jesus!) said to them: “It is enough”; V39) And when Jesus came out, He went (as was His custom!) to the Mount of Olives; and His disciples followed Him.
    .
    Subsequently, and upon completion of His efforts in the Garden of Gethsemene, Jesus stood ready to confront the evil advancing upon Him and His followers. In Matthew, Chapter 26, Verse 46, Jesus states: “Rise, let us be going. See… My betrayer is at hand”; V47) While He was still speaking, Judas came (one of the original twelve disciples!)… and, with him, a great crowd… with swords, and clubs… from the Chief Priests… to the elders of the people; V48) Now the betrayer had given them (those with Judas!) a sign; and, saying to them (those with Judas!): “The one I will kiss, is the man… seize Him”; V49) And he came up to Jesus, at once, and said: “Greetings, Rabbi!”… and he (Judas!) kissed Him (Jesus!); V50) Jesus said to him: “Friend, do what you came to do.” Then they (those with Judas!) came up, and laid hands on Jesus… and seized Him; V51) And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand, drew his sword (i.e., Simon… Peter… see, John 18: 10)… , and struck the servant of the High Priest… cutting off his ear; V52) Then Jesus said to the one (Peter) who drew the sword: “PUT YOUR SWORD BACK INTO ITS PLACE. F-O-R ‘A-L-L’ W-H-O U-S-E T-H-E S-W-O-R-D, W-I-L-L P-E-R-I-S-H B-Y T-H-E S-W-O-R-D”; V53) “DO YOU THINK THAT I CAN’T APPEAL TO MY FATHER?… WHO WILL, AT ONCE, SEND ME MORE THAN TWELVE LEGIONS OF ANGELS!”; V54) “BUT HOW, THEN (if God were to do this!… Jesus continued!) SHALL THE SCRIPTURES BE FULFILLED?”… THAT THUS, IT MUST BE SO (i.e., that the prophesied events should happen in the manner, as was prophesied!)?”
    .
    An interesting response to His disciples– to say the least!… and, after having compelled them to buy, and bring the weapons, in the first place! And!… at a time, of the greatest physical threat to the life of Jesus!… that would lead to His very crucifixion! But!– and as it turned out!– to teach them (and all who would eventually receive these actions, and words!), an important lesson:… VENGENCE IS GOD’S PREROGATIVE!– NOT MAN’S!; VENGENCE IS NOT THE RESERVE OF THOSE CLAIMING CHRIST!; AND, IT IS NOT TO BE METED OUT, IN THIS WORLD! And!… Jesus adds an additional reinforcement, in the Book of John…
    .
    In John, Chapter 18, Verse 36, Jesus states: “MY KINGDOM ‘IS NOT’ OF THIS WORLD!… IF IT WERE, MY SERVANTS ‘WOULD HAVE FOUGHT (and I’ll add here… when Judas, and his gang, met Christ!)’, THAT I MIGHT NOT BE DELIVERED OVER TO THE JEWS!…”
    .
    In other words, THE SERVANTS OF CHRIST WERE NOT TO PHYSICALLY RESIST EVIL!… EITHER TO SAVE CHRIST, OR THEMSELVES!… AND!… MOST IMPORTANTLY!… WERE COMMANDED BY CHRIST, NOT TO DO SO!
    .
    And so, are we (who profess Christ!) to adopt the view… today!… in 2017!… that THIS WORLD (the world that Christ declared was NOT His Kingdom!), IS TO BE MADE HIS KINGDOM!… IS TO BE MADE “OUR” KINGDOM!… THROUGH BLOODSHED?… AND NUKES? AND!… AS IF!… CHRIST’S SECOND COMING, AND HIS HEAVENLY SPIRITUAL KINGDOM, HAD ARRIVED!
    .
    And further… and in a perverse– SATANIC-BACKED!– attempt to subvert the simple story of the AGAPE LOVE of Jesus Christ for God, and for mankind, the following Bible passage is often cited as some kind of “DEVINE SUPPORT” for the position, that “CHRISTIANS” should “BATTLE EVIL THROUGH THE FLESH”!
    .
    In John, Chapter 15, Verse 13, Christ states: “GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE, THAN THIS: THAT ONE LAY DOWN ONE’S LIFE, FOR ONE’S FRIENDS!”
    .
    The questions to be asked here, are these: “Is the ‘laying down’ of one’s life for one’s friends (AS A CHRISTIAN!), the same as TAKING THE LIFE OF ANOTHER, OR THE LIVES OF OTHERS, IN ONE’S DEFENCE OF ONE’S FRIENDS?” “And, if so, how can/ does such a parity remain CONSISTENT, with the totality– AND CLEAR!– teachings, of Jesus Christ?”
    .
    Simply put, given all of the aforenoted Scriptures (and those unstated!), there can be ONLY ONE INTERPRETATION of/ for John, Chapter 15, Verse 13… and that is: “OUR ‘LAYING DOWN’ OF ONE’S LIFE FOR A FRIEND– I.E., AS A TRUE CHRISTIAN, AND IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD!– MUST BE IN THE MANNER, OF JESUS CHRIST (I.E., ‘W-I-T-H-O-U-T’ T-H-E S-H-E-D-D-I-N-G O-F T-H-E B-L-O-O-D, O-F A-N-Y O-T-H-E-R)!”
    .
    Nevertheless!… if we– as professing Christians!– have acted violently in defence of a friend, we have Christ as our propitiation for our sin!… i.e., upon our repentence of our respective impassioned thoughtless act! Otherwise, we invite God’s wrath!… A-N-D C-E-R-T-A-I-N J-U-D-G-E-M-E-N-T, A-N-D R-E-T-R-I-B-U-T-I-O-N!
    .
    IN MATTHEW 7:21-23, WE READ:… 21) “NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, ‘LORD, LORD,’ WILL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN WILL ENTER.” 22) “MANY WILL SAY TO ME ON THAT DAY (I.E., AND, IN PARTICULAR!… ON THE DAY THAT PROFESSING CHRISTIANS WILL STAND BEFORE GOD– FIRST!– AND GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF THEIR COMMISSIONS AND/ OR OMISSIONS!):… ‘LORD, LORD!… DID WE NOT P-R-O-P-H-E-S-Y IN YOUR NAME, AND IN YOUR NAME C-A-S-T O-U-T D-E-M-O-N-S, AND IN YOUR NAME P-E-R-F-O-R-M M-A-N-Y M-I-R-A-C-L-E-S (AND I WILL ADD HERE:… ‘…AND IN YOUR NAME, P-E-R-F-O-R-M-E-D M-A-N-Y A-C-T-S O-F W-A-R?’)?'” 23) “AND THEN I WILL DECLARE TO THEM:… ‘I N-E-V-E-R K-N-E-W Y-O-U; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE L-A-W-L-E-S-S-N-E-S-S (i.e., L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S-N-E-S-S!).'” [NIV]
    .
    IN OTHER WORDS, THERE WILL BE MANY WHO WILL HAVE SHOWN “S-I-G-N-S” OF HAVING FOLLOWED GOD!… AND TRUTH!… BUT!… WHO– I-N R-E-A-L-I-T-Y!– N-E-V-E-R K-N-E-W G-O-D!… NEVER ACCEPTED THE TRUTH!… AND NEVER TRULY ACCEPTED GOD’S LOVE, NOR THE A-G-A-P-E L-O-V-E OF HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS CHRIST! AND YEA!… INDEED!… WERE REVEALED AS HAVING DESTROYED OTHERS WHO WERE FAITHFUL TO THAT LOVE!

    Terrorists, and Terrorism, A-R-E N-O-T “THE PROBLEM”!… A-R-E N-O-T OUR “TARGET”! They’ve never been “THE PROBLEM”!… nor, will they ever be “THE PROBLEM”!
    .
    However distasteful one might find– and for example!– what I’ll term, ISISic Muhammad_Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy (or ISIS-MSBP!)… and ISIS-born Marahiq-Muhammad_mujahidization (i.e, and a.k.a., Preteen-Muhammad_mujahidization!) of Marahiq-Muhammad_mujahideen/ Preteen-Muhammad_mujahideen suicide bombers!… what’s WORSE, is the PREMEDITATED “POLITICORADICALIZED COLLATERAL MURDER” OF RADICALIZED CHILDREN, as a “REACTIONARY TREATMENT” of the “SOCIAL SEQUELAE” of “ISISic RADICALIZATION”, generally!
    .
    The key question to ask ourselves today, in the aftermath of Trump’s “win”, is:… Will ISIS’ reaction be greater to Trump, than such would have been to Clinton? And let’s not be confused!… terrorists watch the news!… and these have heard the claims, and the hyperbole!… and have gauged the rhetoric! H–l!… ISIS was using Twitter!… i.e., until the “plug was pulled”! These have assessed how Trump may respond to their campaigns… versus how Hillary may have responded! And!… these are preparing for their “counter retaliatory responses” to any Trumpian measures to be effected in the future! And!… these respond most agressively when they are under threat! It’s what they do!… it’s who they are!
    .
    And don’t forget… it was the George W. Bush fashioned collateral damage against innocent lives over there… wherever!… that G-A-L-V-A-N-I-Z-E-D otherwise non-aggressive souls into others’ worst nightmares!… wherever! And… it remains to be revealed, to what extent the “tactical offensives” mounted against the “bad guys (AND, SUBSEQUENT COLLATERAL DAMAGE!)” by the military minions to Barack Obama, will fare any better in our histories to be told (i.e., have “c-o-r-r-e-c-t-e-d ‘THE PROBLEM'”!)! And so… the long, and the short of it, is:… Will Americans favor Trump’s “body-bag detail (wherever!… however!… of whomever!… and whenever!)”≠?… or, what would have been that, of Hillary Clinton’s≠? Because… let’s face it!… the terrorists haven’t quit!… and they’re on their way! And although Trump appears… to some!… to be a kind of “stalwart defence (though, perverse!)” against the “DARK ARTS” of “you know who”, is his “defense” more of the “same old, same old” of yesteryear (i.e., a repeat of the evils of by-gone years!… a repeat of history!)≠? In other words, will Donald Trump become, “Mr. Deja Vu”≠?
    .

    As 1 Corinthians 13: 1- 3 states: 1) If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have L-O-V-E, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal! 2) If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have L-O-V-E, I am n-o-t-h-i-n-g! 3) And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have L-O-V-E, it profits me N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

    As a footnote– AND P-L-E-A!– to our B-E-L-O-V-E-D Islamic brothers and sisters, and to the Global Muslim Community (leaving aside, for the moment, those who are of other faiths!)!… remember!… Islam attests to the existence of the person of Jesus Christ; however, the Old Testament (the Testament and Bible of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!… and, to which, Islam subscribes!) D-O-E-S N-O-T A-T-T-E-S-T T-O T-H-E P-E-R-S-O-N O-F M-U-H-A-M-M-A-D! And a Testament, and Bible, that preceded the birth of Jesus Christ!… and, that preceded His New Testament!

    One can only speculate (save, God’s intercession, and revelation!) as to why Muhammad/ Muhammadism/ Islamism/ Muslimism emerged! Possibly the encroachment of Judaism!… and possibly the additional encroachment of the Roman Catholic movement (the latter of which, St. Paul… in tears!… warned the 1st century Christians, would arise! And!… which took the lives of many Christians, and non-Christians, alike! And!… in the name of God, and Christ!)! But!… whatever the reasons!… the words of Christ are clear!… John the Baptist, was THE ONLY FINAL!… AND GREAT!… PROPHET OF GOD!!

  2. P.S.: Until the American citizens demand a renewal of their country’s Constitution that would see the upholding of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as their God therein, it cannot be said that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, is the God recognized by America’s Government!
