IN SECRECY HE WAITS…
A Sunni Muslim friend
I’ve worked with doesn’t pretend…
By hook or crook
The People of the Book,+
He’ll attack, confuse and rend.
He changes his username
As part of his viscious game…
Fall into his snare
And go away not quite the same.
Considering the experience he’s had,
All (but one) Christian is bad…
He was shafted
In a job and laughed at,
His idol…a man called Ahmed Deedat.^
He’s doing what De-Dad did,
Using soft sarcasm to rid…
Bibles of their power,
At each change he’d tower
And mock the Word like a kid.
My friend does a similar thing,
Using only one verse for quoting…
‘Gainst this argument getter
Most don’t know any better
And find his point frustrating..
“My People are not taught to think,” **
In short, their education stinks…
One verse cannot be
Whole doctrine, you see,
Most Bible education: Rinky-Dink!
“My” Sunni take advantage,
Of the poor training disciples get fledged…
Can’t really fly–
In Bible JUST get by–
Too soon to be pushed off the ledge.
Muslim scripture says lie in wait
Use deception to exacerbate…
Christians’ and Jews’
And always say “Allah is Great.”**
It wasn’t his idea to befriend
This Christian work partner in the end…
But friend I became
Following the Holy Name
Because perhaps…agape’ love didn’t bend.
+ “The People of the Book”…specifically Jews and Christians…the Torah: Wisdom, Prophetic and Historical books…and the Bible.
*Ahmed Deedat, recently passed away, is a Muslim advocate seen on You Tube.
**A paraphrase of Isaiah 5:13.
*** “Allahu Akbar” means (to many) that God (Allah only) is the greatest….inferring that no other gods, especially the Jewish and Christian god(s) are anything1
