James White Saith...

The only weapon that can win the war against a constantly advancing and militaristic Islam is the Holy Spirit of God applying the gospel of Christ to the hearts of Muslims and bringing them into a true and full relationship with God through Jesus. A dying secularist West may have all every kind of technology at its disposal, but it lacks the heart to survive. Secularism breeds a culture of death, and it sucks the spirit and life out of mankind, reducing him to a mere animal, robbing him of purpose and life. It cannot survive against an advancing, militant Islam.
And, in my opinion, he is absolutely right--as is not at all unusual.

Look, I am not at all against the United States fighting to defend itself. As a matter of fact, I prefer that we do. But it seems to me that if we have had one big flaw in our "plan," it is this insane idea that we can somehow successfully export and institute American-style representative government without successfully transmitting (to use a weak word) the worldview which produced it. The Founding Fathers repeatedly affirmed that the model of government which they had designed assumed a more-or-less Christian population. They explicitly said that it would not work without one.

So it seems to me that the idea of going into a Muslim country and procuring for it, at a great cost of blood and treasure, a more-or-less American-style representative government, is ultimately doomed to frustration unless we were to successfully evangelize the country. And here we are destroying, at government expense, privately supplied Bibles in the local languages, all to avoid offending the sensibilities of the religion that is producing our enemies in the first place.

I am so sorry. The track record is clear: Islam and totalitarianism go together like peanut butter and jelly. In the long run, resisting Islamofascism means dealing with Islam itself--and that means evangelization. Shooting ourselves in the foot ain't gonna help.
