"Who is the Real Enemy -- Islam or Christianity?"
If Islam is a religion of peace then is Christianity the real enemy? Why is Christianity attacked by Islam, by the mainstream media, and by liberal ideology? Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a religion of the sword. It attempts to impose Islamic law and to purge the land of Christians. We are in a spiritual battle against the devil and his army (Eph 6:10). May God give us the strength to remain faithful to Him and to convert our enemy by means of the Gospel.
