"The church is so small it doesn’t even have a website. It’s main method of communicating with the outside world is its outdoor marquee sitting out front of its building along a highway that few travel. Harrington posted messages last month on the board that read: “Wake up Christians. Allah is not our God. Muhammad not greater than Jesus.” The other side of the marque stated “Only the Bible is God’s Word. Koran is just another book.” In a matter of days word spread to Muslim groups and their left-leaning supporters well beyond Hood River. About a dozen protesters descended on the small church with signs saying “take down this sign.” This church is so small it often can’t muster more than a dozen members for a Sunday service." –Source
Amazing how a small town preacher with a handful of church goers can see the truth in this, but the main stream millionaires dressed up as wolves in sheep's clothing can't seem to realize Allah is not God and Jesus is much more powerful than a pedophile; but then this is the norm in these last days wherein if you have enough political pundits willing to spread the lie for Rome who not only has to make pedophilia the norm, they also seek to make it appear as a wise choice for those looking on who can be indoctrinated to think since learned and powerful men are pedophiles it must mean it's the right thing to do. Don't believe people can't be indoctrinated into thinking child rape is the norm? Perhaps you would have laughed 40 years ago as well if told abortion and homosexual marriage would be legalized in the future?
One can also see how fearful the Muslims are when it comes to the unvarnished or watered down truth of our God. Satan hates our God and anyone that shares his biblical truth, and it appears it doesn't even matter that a Sunday keeping small town pastor is doing it. The fact someone may see it and be converted to the truth is far too frightening for Satan or his pawns to allow without at least trying to stop it. Even if they fail in getting that sign removed, the way they attacked the pastor in the media and local area will make the wishy washy pastors think twice before making any mention of same in sermons, tracts, videos or readerboards.
The article goes on to say:
"There may be, on a good day, 30 cars go by and see our sign,” said Pastor Harrington. “My intent was anybody who agrees with that come on in, and anyone who disagrees with it, come in and we’ll talk about it.” But that wasn’t the case. This simple expression of religious conviction was too “controversial” for some to tolerate. One man, Eric Cohn, was riding his bike by the church one day and said he “could not believe” what he was seeing. He stopped and told the pastor he wept because he was so offended by the message on the reader-board."
This so called "weeping man" even went so far as to write letters to the point the Mayor got involved and stated on camera "I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘oh, it’s okay to be a bigot now." Sound familiar? It should. I've heard the exact same hateful slurs towards me and my message when I shared tracts, videos or sermons exposing the Catholic and Seventh Day Adventists churches over the years. When the people from those churches cannot refute the plain and simple truths found in the Bible, the one sharing them is then the problem. The deceived souls never think to look to themselves to see if the truth proclaimed speaks of their need for repentance or even look in the Bible itself to see if it's true or not. Like the deceived Jews of long ago, if their religious leaders say it they believe it hook line and sinker.
In today's world, and it was prophesied to be this way. (See Isaiah 4:1; 2Timothy 4:3; 2Peter 3:3) Most in the churches are only what I like to call Pastor echoes. Since the Catholic church has been pushing Allah as a god for many years and the SDA church has been declaring the same on camera for them recently, most will indeed be offended as did the "weeping man" and the mayor in this story were. So be it.. had Noah decided not to build the ark after all the complaints rolled in, or if any of the patriarchs and prophets of old clammed up when the heat was on, or what if the apostles decided to stop preaching as the Pharisees demanded in Acts 5? If they shrunk back as the hirelings and scoffers do on a regular basis, Christianity would not be here today.
Pray for this pastor. Perhaps persecution like this will get him to dig into his bible to further defend his message and also pray that while there he may just discover that Sunday is not the Sabbath, his denomination's doctrine of once saved always saved is a lie, and Christmas is in fact a very demonic holiday just to name a few.
