Reza Aslan: ‘What A Troublemaker Jesus Must Have Been, The Movement That He Started Was Such A Threat They Had Him Arrested, Tortured & Killed’

'I Am NOT Ashamed of the Gospel of Christ!'

Reza_Aslan

There is so much wrong with this, I don’t even know where to start.  According to this author ‘Jesus was such a trouble maker and a threat to Rome that they crucified him and killed him.  This man claims to have a PHD, and spent 20 years studying the New Testament.  Well I hate to tell him, but he doesn’t understand anything.  And it just goes to show you, unless you study the Bible with the guidance of the Holy Spirit you won’t understand.  Perhaps that is why Jesus said so many times:  ‘Those who have ears will hear.’  He was an activist for the poor, the meek , the weak, and sacrificed himself for those who couldn’t stand up for themselves?  HELLO!  Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for SIN!  And the desciples were more than capable of standing  up for themselves.  Remember Peter cut the ear off the Roman…

Ramadan is always a highly competitive time for TV ratings in the Muslim world.

After fasting during the day, Muslim families get together each night for 30 days to break their fast with the traditional iftar meal. During these family get-togethers, TV ratings tend to increase dramatically – as do the lengths some presenters will go towards to up their ratings.

This year, one TV cleric is trying to gain his share of the Ramadan viewing figures through a unique prize give away.

The prize? Babies.

The British Telegraph reported Wednesday that Aamit Liaquat Hussain has given away two abandoned babies so far, in what he insists is actually an act of kindness to childless couples.
