A Christmas Carol

Here’s a cozy little seasonal story for you.  You may want to play some yuletide music in the background as you read it.  Or maybe not.

Two years ago, as Christmas approached, it was reported that Klara Vogl, the vicar of the Church of Norway parish in Ellingsrud, an outlying and heavily Muslim neighborhood of Oslo, Norway, planned to have schoolchildren read various passages aloud from scripture at a pre-Christmas service that was designed especially for pupils from the Ellingsrud school.  One of the excerpts she’d earmarked for the service was the following, about what happened to Mary when she was about to give birth to Jesus: “Then the birth pains came to her, by the trunk of a palm tree. She said: ‘I wish I had died before this, and became totally forgotten!’ But then he called to her from beneath her: ‘Do not be sad, your Lord has made below you a stream.’”

If you don’t recognize those lines from any of the gospels, there’s a good reason for it.  They’re not from the Bible.  They’re from the Koran (19:23-24).

Curiously, Vogl didn’t bother informing the parents of any of the kids who would be attending the ceremony – including the parents of the kids she’d picked out to read aloud from the Islamic holy book – that she was preparing to venture so far afield from the usual order of service.  But word got around (not until the other day did I find out exactly how).  I am pleased to note that parents rebelled instantly at the idea, put together an impromptu campaign, and contacted the media.  “I don’t have anything against my daughter learning about Islam,” Elisabeth Sjølie, whose daughter was one of those who had been selected to read aloud, told Norwegian state broadcasting (NRK), “but I have something against her preaching from the Koran without my knowing about it. Would they have dared to ask Muslim children to read from the Bible during the celebration of Eid?  I don’t think so.”

    Islam is a satanic counterfeit designed to usurp Christianity.
    Whether you’re a believer in God or not, you must be aware of the consequences of replacing a religion responsible for Western civilisation with a destructive evil ideology responsible for death and cruelty. Don’t forget that the Koran contains corrupted Bible verses. A vicar who preaches scripture from another religion other than Christianity should be fired from his job.To any Christians who are reading this, please be reminded of the following biblical verse:

    But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned

    Galatians 1:8

    The false Prophet Mohammed was visited by a demon (fallen angel) who preached to him a false gospel, which was later included in the Koran. The rest of the Koran, of course, was made up by Mohammed for his own benefit. Christian preachers who preach from the Koran are traitors to their own gospel and are traitors to their fellow Christians.

    It seems that not just our institutions have been infiltrated by the left, but the church has also been infiltrated by leftists/marxists. Priests who should stand four square on the Bible, openly espouse the book of the anti-Christ. They dont believe in it of course, but use it as tactic to destroy the West and its foundations.They are followers of Gramsci, who advocated the tactic.
