The kind of holy bravery we are going to need in this increasingly Christ-hating world December 2, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, Christendom, Ecumenism, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Holy suffering, horror, manhood, mortification, persecution, secularism, sickness, Society, Spiritual Warfare, Virtue.
This video has been out for some time. My wife found it early last week. A solitary elderly Christian man faces down a very hostile crowd of muslim youths – all equipped with the latest Western technology their own culture could never produce, even while many/most hate and despise the West – at Hyde Park in London. This is Europe in microcosm, elderly, few of faith, and a burgeoning horde of hostile, mocking muslim men:
“Allah is a dead god, not a living God.” Good point, but I’d say, false god, a made-up god of Arian heresy and sicko Jewish zealotry.
The muslims chant allahu ackbar, the lone Christian the Holy Name.
The muslims intimidate and act boorishly, the Christian replies with utmost clarity but also charity.
The muslims mock and laugh, the Christian maintains his composure.
Language may be an issue, but there is not one single substantive attempt to rebut the Christian’s proclamation of the Truth. There are only mindless chants, accusations of calling him a liar, and vain dismissal of him as “old generation English.” Well, to my mind, the England of 1950 was a darned sight better than that of 2015.
I am very proud that the man had the wherewithal, the honesty, and yes the LOVE to tell a hostile crowd they were in grave danger of hellfire if they did not accept Jesus Christ.
And this is London?!? I can say I saw a lot of muslims in London 9 years ago but it appears their numbers have exploded since. And that was deliberate government policy, just as it is here. It’s hardly even England anymore.
And why is that? It’s because there aren’t nearly enough men (and women) like the gentleman in the video who are willing to go out and risk mockery, hatred, and even physical injury to support and defend their faith and culture. The same applies to the United States, as well, though not to quite the same degree, yet.
