Christians Are Allowed By God To Defend Themselves
You wrote saying:
".....But what about the followers of Christianity whose prophet had
exhorted them to present the other cheek to one who slaps? They
recruited hundreds of thousands of crusaders to attack Islamic lands
and continued attacking holy land
for 150 years. The so called civilized countries were also engaged in
colonial wars and Christian clergy went in its wake. The unnecessary
use of Atom Bomb is the great deed of present day civilization which
does not tire of complaining against Islam. Go set your house in
order, before criticizing against Islam".
1] You questioned:
Jesus teaches in Mathew 5:39 of the Bible: " But I say unto you, That
ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek,
turn to him the other also".
What Jesus is teaching the Christians is that they are to be humble
enough to bear injustice from non-Christians taking no revenge, but
Jesus did not say that if the non-Christians want to murder the
Christians, let them murder! Christians must not murder anyone, but
Christians can defend themselves as defined clearly in Luke 22:36 of
the Bible: "Then said he(Jesus) unto them, But now, he that hath a
purse, let him take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath
no SWORD, let him sell his garment, and buy one(SWORD)". From this
verse, Christians can take up arms to defend themselves if they do not
want to be martyrs since Jesus, Himself, had allowed His disciples to
buy SWORD(not knife for cutting food).
2] You questioned:
They recruited hundreds of thousands of crusaders to attack Islamic
lands and continued attacking holy land for 150 years.
Answer: The crusaders were Roman Catholics, and Roman Catholics are
not Christians. So you, mjiqbal, have erred in your saying: mistaking
Roman Catholics as Christians and vice versa.
3] You questioned:
The Colonial wars.
God obviously had anointed the Christian nations like Great Britain
for example to colonise other countries so that the Law of the True
Allah could be established to guide its citizens. In Islam, the
Islamic Covenant has no Law of God namely the 5 books of Moses. For
this reason, Muslims are killing Muslims not only of other Islamic
sects but of their own sect when they became suicide-murderers.
Formerly colonised Islamic countries fair better when the government
maintain the constitution established by the British based on the Law
of God namely the laws of Moses for governance.
4] You questioned:
The unnecessary use of Atom Bomb on Japan.
The Japanese started the Second World War with Germany against
America. The Japanese people foolishly believe that their emperor is
god like you, Muslims foolishly believe that Mohammed was the Last
Messenge of Allah without verify the sayings of Mohammed as true. When
the Japan was losing the war, they forced their pilots to fly their
planes on sucide-murdering missions, and indoctrinated their soldiers
and people to fight to death. Consequently, the outcome of which death
toll would be more than the 200,000 Japanese killed by the Atomic
bombs. Which death toll do you prefer: 200,000 death or 2,000,000
death if Japan sent their people to fight until death? MOREOVER,
American had given the Japanese the chances to surrender warning them
of the New Weapon but to no avail.
5] You retorted:
Go set your house in order before critizing against Islam.
It seems that you do not realize that most Islamic countries are not
in order while the Christian nations are in order according to the
Christian governance of their countries. You are asking Christians to
set their houses in order while it is you, Muslims, that really need
to set your houses in order !!!
Wake up so that you will know how to verify the sayings of Mohammed!
Amen in Christ Jesus.

beeing arrested: "Put away your sword, don't you know that who shall
smite with the sword shall perish by the sword?"
"What Jesus was saying is that whoever strikes another with a sword
not for defend purpose shall be guilty of wrongdoing given the fact
that at that time there was laws of the Roman Empire governing, and
one should not take a sword to kill when one is not threatened
unlawfully to be killed BUT GO TO THE COURT OF LAW IN THE COUNTRY to
settle the issue. In this case, it was Jesus that was to be lawfully
arrested, and there was no reason to smite with the sword, no one was
being killed, and Jesus had said thus: "Whoever kill by the sword will
die by the sword".
And if Christians were not allowed to defence themselves, Jesus would
not have allowed his disciples to carry swords.
Jesus came in 0001AD to establish upon His death on the Cross the New
Covenant under the New Tesatament of the Bible which gives all the Law
of grace whereupon when one confesses one's sin to Jesus, the Savior
of all, one is given.
In Luke 22:48-51, one of the disciples of Jesus struck the slave of
the high priest had asked permission from Jesus "Lord, shall we strike
with the sword, and Jesus had consented to until the incident of the
striking to show the healing power of Jesus, and had explained to the
Christians why sword should not be used unlawfully.
Luke 22:48 And Jesus said to him, Judas, do you betray the Son of Man
with a kiss?
Luke 22:49 And those around Him seeing that about to occur, they said
to Him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword?
Luke 22:50 And a certain one of them struck the slave of the high
priest and cut off his right ear.
Luke 22:51 And answering, Jesus said, ALLOW IT until this. And
touching his ear, He healed him.
