LINKS FOR FURTHER STUDY

  

I didn't know who "Dr Brown" was. Apparently he is what is called a "Messianic Jew" which is a cult that falls between the two stools of Judaism and Christianity but most closely resembles the heretical Judaizers of the New Testament Church of Jesus Christ.

I came across Brown while surfing the Web.  I was struck by his ignorance of the religious terrorism that has plagued the world in the past and the present, since he asserts that Islam alone is inexplicably violent. 

The world will fare little better in the future than it has in the past and does in the present with intolerance and persecution of one faith, denomination, or sect by another faith, denomination, or sect if Dr Brown's ignorance becomes an Article of Faith, whether of Jews or Christians. Dr Brown said:
 

Once again, I recognize that millions of Muslims repudiate these acts of terror [ISIS &c], but is there any real equivalent to all these religiously-motivated attacks in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, or Judaism? If not, why not? What is it about Islam that is so conducive to violence? [www.askdrbrown.org]

=========================

  

I found his questions lacking seminal historical fact and wrote to him. 

  

Ronnie Bray to Dr Brown:
 
What an excellent question. Have you never heard of the Crusades and how bloody they were? One crusade set about fellow Christians in the east and slaughtered them in their thousands on their way to wrest the Holy Land from Saracens.

What they did when they reached Jerusalem including the senseless and godless slaughter they committed makes hearts filled with Christ and his Holy Spirit repudiate the evil Christians that perpetrated such wickedness on innocents. 

The Inquisitions murdered 'hereticks,' the witch hunts tortured and murdered innocent old women because they were a bit peculiar, Papal Wars spread violence and bloodshed, and even today that are many allegedly Christian ministries dedicated to overthrowing other Christian denominations that dares to disagree with them. The Internet is awash with these kinds of purveyors of blood and horror whose devotion to Christianity is pure Devilry and so unlike Jesus Christ that it is a surprise that any sober and honest Bible reader will join him or herself to their evil machinations and drink their Demonic Kool-Aid. 

And you, Dr Brown, ask,

  

"Is there any real equivalent to all these religiously-motivated attacks in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, or Judaism? If not, why not? What is it about Islam that is so conducive to violence?"

  

Well, Doctor, each one of the 'innocent' faiths you include in your foolish 'augury of innocence'  has a violent and bloody past.

It was Irgun and the Zionists that introduced terrorism into the Middle East and Palestine. These Jewish Zionists slaughtered British soldiers when they blew up the King David Hotel, and committed further acts of violence by killing at will other British nationals that were governing Palestine under a League of Nations mandate.

That goes some way to answer your question about Judaism, but you might remember in the recent past the bloody reprisals taken by the Jewish State of Israel against Gaza in which the slaughter equalled anything that ISIS and other Muslim terror groups have done.

Buddhists have been on the fray against their religious enemies, and Hindu nationals recently slaughtered innocent Muslims in their tens of thousands in the sub-continent.

If you hold the premise that Islam is more violent than any other faith, and that the faiths you listed as innocent, by inference if not straightforwardly, are innocent of any violence as parts of their history, then you stand in need of basic education about world history and the roles these religious faiths, including Christianity, have contributed in making streets run red with the blood of innocents.

If necessary, I will furnish links to educational materials that will make your rosy spectacles allow you to see more clearly and thus introduce you to the awful truths of history that have caused and still cause the innocent to sleep lightly because they know they have dastardly and murderous religious enemies 'out there' that will kill them in a heartbeat, and frequently do, whether they murder reputations with Satanic lies, or whether they murder living people with bullets and bombs.

Today in the USA there are ministries dedicated to the downfall of those they have determined are not Christians. The puritans that came to America for their religious freedom set about hanging Quakers because they were not 'Christians.' They did not stop at Quakers, but set about slaughtering Aborigines. 

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

If you want to see Christian religious hatred visit Salem Massachusetts or any southern town where the Baptist-inspired KKK operated to slaughter their black Christian brothers and sisters, including little children for not better reason than they were black. The men in the picture, lunched in Indiana in 1930, were mutilated either before or after they were murdered by white Christians. If you look closely at the picture you will see small children present.

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

Ask a Jehovah's Witness or a Mormon about persecution by Christians and you will open doors that you might rather had remained bolted and barred but you will be hot on the trail of accurate answers to your question. 

You can take this personally, but anyone so blissfully unaware of these plain and easy accessible histories is living in a world where White Rabbits carry pocket watches and the Mad Hatter hosts tea parties.

This site is a good place to begin. You might not like the position of its author, an atheist, but the history truths he proffers are undeniable. All Christians should feel shame for what their predecessors have done, and for what their contemporaries are still doing in the name of Sweet, Gentle Jesus.

Killings for Christianity

"Much (but not all) of Christianity's killing is in the past. Christianity had a long run as the world's most violent... " MARKHUMPHRYS.COM

  ========================

  Not only have I not had a response from Michael Brown, but my post has mysteriously disappeared from his Blog as has his original QUESTION because the whole post slipped quietly away from Dr Brown's website.  Curiouser and curiouser!

 ========================

  

Who is Michael L Brown, AKA Dr Brown?  His website claims:

 Since coming to faith in 1971 as a 16 year-old, heroin-shooting Jewish rock drummer, Dr. Michael Brown has devoted his life to fostering awakening in the Church, sparking moral and cultural revolution in the society, raising up gospel laborers for the nations, and reaching out to his own Jewish people. He is the host of the nationally syndicated Line of Fire radio broadcast, the president of FIRE School of Ministry, and a professor of Bible and Hebrew studies at several leading seminaries. He has preached in more than 25 nations and is the author of 25 books and numerous scholarly and popular articles. Dr. Brown has debated Jewish rabbis, agnostic professors, and gay activists on radio, TV, and college campuses, and he is widely considered to be the world’s foremost Messianic Jewish apologist.

Yet we stand dumbfounded by such a qualified person's inability to reply to my letter and admit that he might know a lot bur he does not know the history of human religions and its wars and battles to defeat those they could not convert! I did ask Dr Brown but am still ignored!

Clearly, Doctor Brown is not 'the world's foremost' letter writer!  But then, few persons that make extravagant claims about their abilities turn out to be competent correspondents, especially 

  

================================

  

  

  

  

Curiouser and Curiouser!

  

“Curiouser and curiouser!” Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).

“Now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!” (for when she looked down at her feet they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off).

“Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears? I’m sure I Shan't’t be able! I shall be a great deal too far off to trouble myself about you: you must manage the best way you can—but I must be kind to them,” thought Alice, “or perhaps they won’t walk the way I want to go! Let me see. I’ll give them a new pair of boots every Christmas.”

And she went on planning to herself how she would manage it. “They must go by the carrier,” she thought; and how funny it’ll seem, sending presents to one’s own feet! And how odd the directions will look!

  ===================

I get the same feeling Alice had when I read Dr Brown's version of bloody Religious persecution that blames religious violence on Islam in a bitter and ill-conceived post that makes it plain that he cannot see Christianity's, or even his own, feet of clay, and the bitter, murderous acts of hatred, rapine, plunder, and murder that they have perpetrated over the past two thousand years. Perhaps because he is part Jewish, he has made the same mistake Jonah made before God taught him to open his eyes, his mind, and his soul to see God's Big Picture because Brown believes that God only likes Jews, Israelites, and Judaizers.

 It is a funny thing, because I have Askance forebears according to my DNA and am a cousin to every other Ashkenazi Jew in the world.

Being also a Christian I find that I am not required by my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, nor by my Father-God Elohim to hate anyone. I am, however, required to stop religious liars, religious ignoramuses, and religious bigots dead in their tracks by teaching them the truth, even if that amounts to nothing more profound than showing their statements are not true by showing them facts contrary to their false positions. 

  

Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish philosopher,said:

 
The greatest of faults is to be conscious, of none.  

  

Perhaps if Dr Brown were to turn his telescope the other way round ... ?

We are entitled to ask how a man who claims an advanced education can also be blissfully ignorant of the history of religion and religious wars and the murderous depredations to which Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and every other significant faith and denominations have at one time or another set their bloodied hands to across the centuries and how someone that boasts of such a distinguished education can remain hiding under a stone so he cannot see what has been done by separators and dividers like himself to cause the opposite of the "Peace on earth and to all men good will," that is clearly God's holy purpose for religion

============================================

In light of his degrees, researches, writings, and achievements, how it it that Michael L Brown can ask:

  

"I recognize that millions of Muslims repudiate these acts of terror, but is there any real equivalent to all these religiously-motivated attacks in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, or Judaism? If not, why not? What is it about Islam that is so conducive to violence?"

  

Every first year student of the History of Religion will recognise Brown's statement/question as a fudge, a nonsense, and out-an-out prejudiced and pejorative rant from an Islamopohobe.

  

And he doesn't know about the violence done by practitioners of faiths other than Islam! The words of the Holy Bible come strikingly to mind:

  

"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom:

and with all thy getting get understanding."

--- Proverbs 4:7

  

  

I wish the good Doctor well, but I can't help thinking that he has a huge gap in his knowledge and understanding.  Perhaps, someday, he will explain and make everything alright?
