This week Imam Azhar and B.C. Dodge come at you live with the results of the Alabama Senate election between Doug Jones and Roy Moore. B.C. goes on a mini rant where he asks what is going on in the United States? How is it that Roy Moore is even a viable candidate? Which makes B.C. circle back to last week’s question – why don’t YOU care?
However, even with an election of an alleged pedophile looming on the horizon, that wasn’t the biggest news of the week – President Trump made the announcement that he not only recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel…but plans were already underway to move the U.S. Embasy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Imam Azhar then gives the history of Jerusalem and Masjid Aqsa, from the Quran to the history of Islam.
Which leads to the that point that both Muslims and Christians are waiting for the return of Jesus (yes, Muslims believe in Jesus) but acting in inappropriate ways such as calling for jihad and hurting or killing innocent people is not how that happens. It happens on God’s time – you can force it to happen.
The constant piling up of our problems…from news of what the U.S. President has tweeted now, of what the congress has done (or not done) for or against the American people, what country is threating war… can wear down one’s soul. It can make you upset, it can make you angary; when that happens, there are two things one can do- you can either give in and accept what is happening, or you can resist.
