How do you define Kingdom of God?I think the root of all of this on a religious level is that Christians don't believe in the kingdom of God, they believe in the Kingdom of Rome (whether it be the US government or something else).
Why is it that only the Radical Evangelical Protestants (who are a minority compared to nationalist/secularist Evangelicals who are the majority) and the Catholic Integralists, that care about the Kingdom Of God?
A Western Christian sees that Muslims fervently believe in the Kingdom Of God spoken of by Jesus and their jaw drops. Such a reaction shouldn't be happening, it shows the deficiency, passivity and docile nature of Western Christians.
As the Lord's Prayer says:
"Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven."
(not just in heaven, or in the end times).
nothing in the sharia about forcing dhimmis into "ghettos". but yes they do have restrictions such as not being allowed to proselytize. none of those restrictions listed imply forcing them into ghettos or treating them poorlyI wasn’t entirely sure what dhimmi was so I looked it up on Wikipedia!
is this correct: ?
“Numerous restrictions reinforced the second-class status of dhimmī communities and forced them into ghettos. For instance, they must distinguish themselves from their Muslim neighbors by their dress. They were not permitted to build new churches or synagogues, but only to repair old ones. A Muslim man may marry a Jewish or Christian dhimmī woman, who may keep her own religion, but a Muslim woman cannot marry a dhimmī man unless he converts to Islam. Dhimmīs are prohibited from converting Muslims under severe penalties, while Muslims are encouraged to convert dhimmīs.”
