So I just watched a video where the radical Muslim speaker tries to explain how it is not the Earth that rotates around the Sun, but rather how really the Earth is fixed in space, and it is the Sun which rotates around it.
His logic and proofs include things like the following:
– If the Earth was really moving, and you tried to fly to China, the plane shouldn’t have to move, since China would just come to the plane.
– Also, if the Earth was moving in the same direction as the plane, and you were flying to China, then you would never get there, because you’d just be chasing a moving China.
This is how people’s inner darkness, ignorance, and evil can attempt to extinguish the light.
Similarly, this past week, the “leader” of Iran took the opportunity on International Holocaust Remembrance Day (Jan. 27)–of all days –to once again express his vile denial of the Holocaust.
Khamenei declaring: “It’s not clear if the Holocaust is a reality or not.“
And calling for the “dear people of Iran” to “stand up to the ignorance” of the West.
Wow, who is calling whom ignorant and trying to brainwash the good people of Iran.
It’s funny, but there are so many nice people from Iran that I’ve had the opportunity to meet and befriend, and one of them is an elderly man who is a swimming buddy of mine– and he is such a nice person–I really enjoy talking with him (despite some of our differences of opinion).
The point is that when the leadership is corrupt, evil, and insecure, then they try to extinguish the good in the masses of the people, so that the people stay in the dark, blinded by scare tactics, scapegoats, and hatred–this is how they stay in power.
When it comes to Holocaust denial though, I think this is definitely going way too far, and I imagine the souls of the Six Million righteous who perished in the Holocaust–under the worst genocide the world has ever known–that they are watching and they are listening.
And Khamenei and his cohorts of evil doers will most certainly have to contend with all these very real martyred righteous souls.
So in their warped ignorance, foolishness, and hatred–where the sun rotates around the earth and with utter darkness they attempt to extinguish the light of the good people–I imagine with the strongest and most vivid of images and sounds that certainly Heaven does not await them…but a very fiery Hell of their own making indeed.
