Obama called for an opening of attitudes to the realities of globalisation and promised better educational an innovation partnerships between the Muslim world and the West.
He finished his speech quoting sections of the Koran, the Talmud and the Bible that call for peace, equality and mutual understanding. [for full article: France24]
“I am the Lord; that is my name!
I will not give my glory to anyone else,
nor share my praise with carved idols.
Everything I prophesied has come true,
and now I will prophesy again.
I will tell you the future before it happens.” Isaiah 42:8-9
“For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it; For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another.” Isaiah 48:11
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Galations 6:7
“Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 34 Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.” 1 Corinthians 15:33,34
“So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?”
8 And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. 9 But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” Luke 21:7-9
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6
I did listen to the +50 minute speech. I heard him use the term, “The holy Koran says…” quite a few times. As A Christian, one who has been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb, the Holy one of Israel, the Messiah, God made flesh, there is absolutely no way I could ever fathom using such a term as to quote from another (false) gospel and say that it is holy. The Koran teaches that God had no son.
“God has no son and there is no other god accompanying Him, for then each god would have gone off with what he created and one of them would have been exalted above the other. Glory be to God above what they describe.” (Sura al-Muminun: 91)
At the very last minute of his 54 minute speech, he quoted the Talmud, and the Bible, and of course once again the Koran. In Luke 4, Satan attempts to tempt Jesus Christ. Satan quotes scripture! So don’t be fooled. In Luke 4, and also in Mark 1 you read that the demons acknowledge who Jesus Christ is! So don’t be fooled. In the book of Acts 19 an evil spirit knew Jesus Christ and Paul! So don’t be fooled. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, you must be on guard for the enemy is seeking whom he can devour! Do not be deceived.
1 John 2:15-24 “Do not love the world nor the things in the world If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.
18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.
20But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.
21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.
24 As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.” (NASB)
