Darryl's thoughts on the Christian Faith, Facts, and World Events
On the other hand, you "Jihadi John" seem to be dedicated to killing those who don't accept the Shahada.
How do you know that what you believe is true?
If I made a new religion called "Mathism" and I required my followers to chant "2+2=3 and 3+3=7" over and over, would it make it true? If I put a gun to someone's head or a knife to their throat, how many people would say, "2+2=3 and 3+3=7" but it still wouldn't make it true.
How can you be sure that the Quran is completely true? It was only written by one man, who had an encounter with one angel. Isn't it more likely for one person to be wrong than 40?
What about the prophecies, archeology, and scientific facts?
Because of your beliefs, you are causing a lot of pain to a lot of people. A lot of people want to kill you or put you in prison for your beliefs. Therefore, you must have even stronger evidence to support your beliefs and actions that I do. If I am wrong about Christianity, I will have lived a good life and I will have helped a lot of people but you have to ask yourself, "What if I am wrong?"
Jesus loves you, and because of His grace, I love you too. It is only because of Christ's love, that I pray that you and many others like you will turn from radical Islam and will come to have a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Some missionaries who have been professionally trained as musicians etc. compose, perform, and sell their music in order to help fund their mission work. Decades of research, education, and a lot of money has been invested in me so that I am capable of communicating on these topics on a professional level.
For me, these articles are my songs. Songs are often a "cry of the heart" which cannot be suppressed. I have tried my best to remain silent on these issues in the past. God may lead me to be silent again in the future. At this moment, I cannot be silent.
I have come to the conclusion that when the Bible says, "the workman is worthy of his wages," (1 Timothy 5:18) that this truth does not ONLY apply to pastors. I believe that it ALSO applies to fairly tipping our waiters and waitresses etc., for their services. This is especially important if they depend on this for their income.
If this offends you, then that is only indication that my articles are not valuable to you, therefore no "tip" is requested.
