    There a cartons artists who have made drawing mocking the Jesus begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18. As well are cartons mocking God the Father. One of the many reasons that Christians don’t engaging in violence, let alone deadly violence , against those cartoon artists is the the God of the Bible is so Powerful that He can take care of and defend Himself. As the Bible teaches “Be not deceived ; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7. [K.J.V.] The God of the Bible is not weak .He will take care of it. He does not need Christians help Him out. In contrast, the god of Islam is so very weak , such a nothing god, that he can’t defend himself against a cartoon from a cartoon mocking him of Muhammad. So Muslims feel the need help their god , Allah ,out by engaging in deadly violence against those cartoon artists. What a weak and powerless god Allah must be that Muslim feel strong the they need to help Allah out. Therefore, all this does lead to the following essay.
    First, In the Bible it gives the account of the Prophet Elijah declared “If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal be ,then follow him.” First Kings 18:21.[N.K.J.V.] In other words follow one of the other. Not both.
    Second, many people say that the God of the Bible and the god of Islam are one the same. Is the majority always right? That’s not always the case. As an example the Christian pastor and scholar, Michael Youssef, who is also an Arab in his book entitled JESUS, JIHAD AND PEACE on page 69 informs the reader that “The name Allah comes from pre-Islamic times, and it corresponds to the Babylonian mane Bel or Baal. According to the Middle East scholar E.M. Wherry, pre-Islamic Arabs worshiped gods they called Allah. Both pre-Islamic Allah-worship and Baal –worship involved worship of the sun, the moon and the stars, which is why they are called astral religions. The crescent moon, the symbol of pagan moon worship, is also the symbol of Islam. It is printed on flags of many Islamic countries and placed atop minarets and mosques.” Likewise, a former Muslim who is now a Christian, Dr. Daniel Shayesteh, who used to live in the Middle East but now he lives in America . In his book ISLAM AND THE SON OF GOD. On pages 7,8. Reads “Allah is the generic term for God in many Middle –Eastern cultures. Allah is identified as one of the 360 or so idols worshiped by the Arabian people for centuries before Muhammad was born. Many do not know that Allah was the good god of the Arabians. This explains the crescent moon found on minarets and mosques and the flags of Muslim nations. .. .Historic writings also identify Allah with Baal.” It’s also worth mentioning that the Bible condemns such astral religions. As in, for example, Second Kings 23:5.
    Therefore, now in modern times, it may be rightly said “If Yahweh Lord of the Bible , be the one True God follow Him. Yet if Allah the lord of Islam be the one true god then follow him.” The case is very clear cut.

    Quite a number had made drawings that are cartons making fun of Jesus and Christianity . Many Christians , naturally, don’t like such type of cartoons . Nevertheless, Unlike Muslims, Christians don’t murder the people who draw cartons that they find offensive .This alone reveals much.
