An evangelical preacher from Northern Ireland who branded Islam satanic has been charged with spreading a “grossly offensive” message

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)

The window of freedom that gospel preachers around the world have long enjoyed to be able to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ might very well be starting to close. If preaching a message that “Islam is satanic” (which it is) is now a crime, then none of us will be left standing when the dust settles. In the New World Order, any Bible preacher who dares to lift the lid on the demonic truth of what Islam really is will be silenced. Islam is not a religion, it is a violent and fascist ideology, bent on world conquest, and enforced at the tip of a knife blade.

In a May 2014 sermon, Pastor James McConnell told worshippers at the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast: “Islam is heathen. Islam is satanic.” The sermon was streamed online, and 78-year-old McConnell has been charged with transmitting the message over an electronic communications network.

Prosecutor David Russell told Belfast Magistrates’ Court Monday that the case had “nothing to do with religion or freedom of expression.”

He said McConnell “characterizes the followers of an entire religion in a stereotypical way. And that’s grossly offensive and that’s not protected from saying it from a pulpit.” McConnell denies the charges, and told police he didn’t intend to offend, insult, arouse fear or stir up tension.

Pastor James McConnell’s Full-Length Sermon On Islam:

Listen to the sermon that got Pastor McConnell put in jail, and decide for yourself if it was “hate speech” or just good, Bible preaching.

“The Muslim god is a heathen deity, Allah is a cruel deity, and Allah is a demon deity” Pastor McConnell says is his sermon. He goes on to say that the embrace of Islam by England will be it’s downfall, which most certainly is true. These words are his crime and considered to be “hate speech”. Nowhere is his sermon does Pastor James McConnell call for violence or oppression of any Muslim people. What he does do, however, is make a passionate plea for New Testament Christianity, and perhaps that is what has really landed him in legal hot water.

“I know the time will come, in this land, and in this nation, that to say such things will be an offense to the law.”, McConnell goes on to say. “The Muslim religion was created many hundreds of years after Christ. But Muslims believe that everyone in the Old Testament, up to and including Jesus Christ, was a Muslim.” He outlines many of the lies and untruths of Islam in a rational, calm and intelligent way.

Everything that Pastor McConnell says in this sermon is absolutely true, and in line with the teachings of the Bible. But Biblical truth is not welcome and has no place in the New World Order bent on installing Sharia Law around the world. Pray for Pastor McConnell, right now it is his time in the “hot seat”.
