CHILDREN IN PHILADELPHIA MUSLIM SOCIETY SAY THEY WILL CHOP OFF HEADS FOR ALLAH (Friday Church News Notes, May 10, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Kids in Philadelphia,” Daily Wire, May 3, 2019: “The Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia posted the video to its Facebook page celebrating Ummah Day in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang and read poetry about killing for Allah and the mosque in Jerusalem, Fox News reported. ‘One girl talks about martyrs sacrificing their lives without hesitation to conquer Jerusalem.’ ‘We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation,’ another girl says. ‘We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque [the mosque on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount]. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.’ In a statement to Fox News, MEMRI wrote: ‘These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country--including in Pennsylvania.’ ... Hassan Sajwani, an Emirati writer, tweeted: ‘I hope the world now realizes why did the #UAE back in 2014 designate #MuslimAmericanSociety @mas_national a terrorist organization! This is what they preach [to] kids as young as 5 yrs of age !!’”
PAUL’S ADAM (Friday Church News Notes, May 10, 2019, www.wayoflife.org email@example.com, 866-295-4143) - The following is from Creation Moments, Apr. 15, 2019: “‘For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive’ (1 Corinthians 15:21-22). I saw a video on the BioLogos website entitled Paul’s Adam. Even the title caused concern. The apostle Paul alludes to Genesis in a number of places in his epistles, but two places in particular refer directly to Adam. These are Romans 5 and 1 Corinthians 15. In both cases, Adam is compared to Jesus. When I watched the video, I heard the featured theologians say that Paul got it wrong. These supposedly Bible-believing theologians were explaining that Adam was never a real person, but that they did not expect the apostle Paul to know that, and, therefore, the lesson drawn by Paul is still true. The lesson that Paul draws, in brief, is this: Adam was our representative in Eden. Jesus was our representative on the cross. ‘For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.’ The analogy made between Adam and Jesus in both passages is so close that logic would tell us that the lesson would be undermined if Adam did not exist. It seems that some self-avowed conservative theologians are playing with fire these days. The idea that ‘it’s okay, if Paul was wrong’ is not an acceptable answer. The more humble approach is to acknowledge that if Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, told us that Adam was real, then he most certainly was.”

Unless otherwise stated, the Notes are written by David Cloud. Of necessity we quote from a wide variety of sources, but this obviously does not imply an endorsement. We trust that our readers will not be discouraged. It is God’s will that we know the times (1 Ch. 12:32; Mat. 16:3) and that we be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves. The News Notes remind us that the hour is very late, and we need to be ready for the Lord’s coming. Are you sure that you are born again? Are you living for Christ? “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof” (Rom. 13:11-14).
