Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season... 2 Tim. 4:2a, NIV

March, 2006

Dear friend of KHCS,

You are no doubt aware of the rioting that continues around the world due to the publication in a Danish newspaper, last September, of a cartoon representing Mohammed.

Embassies have been torched, the lives of European newspaper employees have been threatened, and in Pakistan, a church was ransacked Bibles and hymnbooks were thrown on the floor, trampled and spat upon.  One Christian woman’s legs were broken in the meleé. 

Muslim clerics are demanding that Western countries abolish the freedom of the press so that their “sensibilities” are not hurt.

Yet, even when ten Baptist churches in Alabama were burned recently, their response was summed up in the verse, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

When an art museum displayed a crucifix in a jar of urine they called it “art” Christians didn’t burn the museum to the ground.

And when NBC aired the TV series “The Book of Daniel,” all Christians did was write letters.

I’m sure you can see the difference.

Islamic clerics claim that the laws of every nation must be subject to Islamic law, that is, the saying and traditions of Mohammed.

Some people I’ve talked to have said that we should go out of our way to not offend Muslims.  Well, I would have to say that sounds great at first.

But Randall Terry, in the Christian Newswire recently, made this point:

“If the British and the French had condemned and resisted Hitler and the Nazis when the Rhineland, Austria, or even Czechoslovakia fell into Nazi clutches or at any time between 1933 and 1939 Hitler would have been toppled, arrested, and probably tried as a criminal by German generals.  Moreover, the momentum and machinations of war that led to WWII would have ground to a halt.  The British government was successful in “not offending the Nazis,” and obtaining “peace in our time,” yet it was all folly.  It merely insured that war would come, and that it would be catastrophic nearly fatal to Europe and the entire British Empire.”

No, militant Islam is an imperialistic movement, using religion as a shield.  Christians must boldly confront this cult, and its false prophet, with the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

KHCS is doing our part to bring Truth to the Coachella Valley and other areas of the desert with Information and Inspiration, 24 hours a day.

Your tax-deductible contributions are necessary for the continuation of this listener-supported ministry.

I have to report, however, that our expenses are continuing in 2006 even though we have not yet caught up with the budget for 2005.  Our shortfall as I write this is almost $50,000.

Your tangible expression of support for our ministry on your behalf is vitally needed, right now.  Please be as generous as you can.  Thank you!

In His joy!
