It always amazes me how much the media takes everything out of context and never looks at the big picture. I know they have an agenda that they are trying to accomplish but it just amazes me as human beings, that they never take a moment to piece it all together. That is why you get reactions like the two videos links below of interviews with Ben Carson this week on comments he made about Shariah Law. Ben has obviously done his homework and taken even 10 minutes to think about the big picture of reality. The interviewers obviously have not, and have not seen or read the first article I posted.
We live in a complex world, that is made less complex by following the Truth of the Gospel, but it is more than sound bytes and gotcha politics and it is dangerous to treat it as such. This is not a game…
On a side note: Can anyone name one country that has adopted Shariah Law that also allows for equal existence of other religions? Hmm…. Nope!
Remember, the darker it gets, the brighter and farther our little light shines!

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
