Quran burning not Christian

Don't burn the Quran and credit Jesus. "Many are called, but few are chosen" is also disputed by some who profess Christianity, but Jesus says by their actions "you will know my followers." This little "church" in Gainesville, Fla., by their actions show they are not of Jesus when they advocate burning the Quran. That avocation misses on so many points to call themselves "Christian," insults Jesus and misrepresents the teachings of Jesus very badly. Unfortunately, a great many who profess themselves as Christians have no idea if these are correct actions of a follower of Jesus or not.

The "churches" don't advocate the teachings of Jesus, as evidenced by the lack of New Testament studies offered publicly by the many local "churches." Check your local listings. Churches advocate their point of view, misleading many by perpetuating wrong teaching among themselves. People who call themselves Christians and haven't read the New Testament are more likely to be led astray of the teachings of Jesus than not. Having no idea if their "church" is leading them toward heaven or hell is very dangerous to their soul and puts a stink on all of Christianity.

Then there are those who care about their own soul and read the words themselves, building their faith upon those words, not the latest "worship" song or preacher who shouts the loudest. The Apostle Paul warns that the evil one preys upon those whose faith blows like a leaf in the wind. Jesus informs us again that "many will come in my name, but don't be deceived." "My family are those who not only hear, but do it."

This action advocating burning the Quran is not Christian; this action shows the difference between Christianity and deception, just as 9/11 shows the difference in Islam.
