I was politely told that I would never get a letter published in The Spectrum that contained such questions and that in the future it would be wise for me to leave out any references to Mormons and to further refrain from questioning the worthiness or reasons why local boys and girls are dying in the sands of Mesopotamia.
Well it was with some degree of shock that I read yesterday's letter from a man in Sun River who basically said that Islam was a plot by Satan. It showed me to what extent this whole sordid mess has become entwined with the more idiotic aspects of organized religion and how totally biased the local media has allowed itself to become against another religion it has no fear of offending.

Satan's plan is to rob God of his glory
One day an ordinary young man went to a private place to pray. While in prayer he received a supernatural visitation. The fruit of his vision led to a revealing of new "scripture" intended to correct errors and omissions in the Bible. The new scripture, and subsequent revelations, became the foundation and doctrine of a new religion.
The young man's name was Mohammed. While in a cave praying the "angel Gabriel' imparted to this "prophet" the text of the Koran, the foundation of the Islamic faith. Additional doctrines and teachings have been "supernaturally" imparted to Muslim leaders over the years.
God in His omniscience warns us of supernatural deceptions in 2 Cor 11:14, where He reveals that Satan can transform himself into an "angel of light" to deceive us. And again in Gal 1:8, God warns that men, and even "angels," will try to preach a false gospel.
My friend, Satan doesn't care about you. His "master passion" is to rob God of His Glory and trample on the blood of Jesus by luring you into placing your faith in a false prophet, a false God, a false Jesus and a false gospel. Friends, please don't buy into Satan's lies.
