We bought a turkey for Christmas from Checkers/Shoprite. It cost a stack of cash, but you know, Christmas – all about Christ, the Son of God, come to earth to save us from our sins – good tidings of great joy for all people – we can spend a bit of cash. We took it home, stored it, and then defrosted it to cook … and then noticed a little note that says:
“SLAUGHTERED AS PER ISLAMIC RITES”
So here’s the idea: you sit down to celebrate the birth of the Son of God, and your friendly turkey provider so completely despises the Son of God that he has decided to accommodate people that hate his name, that speak nothing but lies about him, and who would like their meat butchered not efficiently and humanely, nor wishing you a merry Christmas, but with the name of their false god “allah”. They would rather insult the majority of Christians to accommodate the minority of vocal muslims who hate Christmas. They despise their Christian customers. They don’t even put this offensive antichrist religion’s special stuff in a demarcated shelf labelled something like “Halal Antichristmas Turkey”.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.1 John 2:22 KJV
This is not an empty accusation. Islam specifically denies the Son of God: they hate Christmas.
Never has God begotten a son, nor is there any other god besides Him. Were this otherwise, each god would govern his own creation, each holding himself above the other. Exalted be God above their falsehoodQur’an 23:91
That is nothing but a flat-out denial of the gospel, which is that God sent his Son into the world to save us from our sins:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.John 3:16 KJV
We fixed this problem for ourselves (but not the insult to Christ). Turkey is a bit dry. We followed the recipe, and covered it with another meat. It ain’t halal no more.
