Cancer in our society IV: ISIS is practicing Islam

What’s in a name?

A lot really. Currently people like President Barak Hussein Obama is telling the world that ISIS, which stand for Islamic State in Syria, or as he prefers to call them ISIL, the Islamic State in Levant,  is neither a state nor Islamic. He only ever refers to it by its name ISIL not ISIS. Here David Wood explains why. He also explains the method by which those who become radicalized do so. They are just following the tenets of their religion.

But ironically Isis was the Egyptian queen (female deity), the moon-god, sister to and wife to Osiris, the sun-god. Who are they really serving? It is not the Lord Jehovah.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:8)

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)
