He and his "church" plan a public burning of the Koran on September 11, 2010.
He has turned his back on the essential Christian doctrines of loving thy neighbor as taught by Christ.
Matthew 22:34-40 (English Standard Version)
The Great Commandment
34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
Pastor Terry Jones, apparently blinded by self righteousness, seems to have forgotten that:
- Christians are not to be entangled in the political pursuits
- Christ did not defend himself against Pilot or the Roman Empire.
- Christians do not wrestle against men, but against spiritual forces
- The Christian does not wage a physical (or political ) battle
Some may view Pastor Jones as a patriot. Using the Biblical standard, he is no pastor. His message and actions are unbiblical. Using the First Amendment as protection for his unbiblical actions is defrauding the The Scriptures. A wolf in sheeps' clothing.
Congratulations Pastor Jones, the real fire you are starting is the fire that will burn Christians at the stake once again.
