Joyner: God Using Islam to Punish Us

Rick Joyner, like most fake Christian “prophets,” insists that he can discern exactly what God is up to at any given moment. And like most times, God is sending a message to America to stop doing things that Joyner doesn’t like. Only this time he’s using Islam to punish us.

“What is happening with radical Islam rising in the earth is judgment from God against perversion and abortion,” Joyner said. “I believe God is using it just the way He used the heathen nations around Israel; whenever Israel fell into apostasy, He would use the heathen nations around Israel to discipline them … I believe this challenge of Islam all over the world, God is allowing it — it’s not His spirit, it’s contrary to His spirit — but He is allowing it to bring judgment on both perversion and abortion.”

Maybe you should pray about it. And get a lot of others to do it too. For 40 days. Because that’s always fixed everything in the past, right?

    radical Islam rising in the earth is judgment from God

    So Dog raises up false religions to punish his one true religion? I bet that was also the reason he invented iron chariot wheels.

    Moron is just too pale a word.

    God always seems to have the most terrible aim. He never seems to target the people actually doing the “bad things”, instead just carpet bombing entire countries for the supposed crimes of a few. If he’s mad about abortion and gays, why doesn’t he just punish the aborters and gays?

    John Pieret, #1: Moron is just too pale a word.

    I have found that no English words in any combination can adequately describe US Republicans or US conservatives without screaming and the inclusion of a lot of swear words.

    ’ve been thinking that it might be interesting if a bunch of folks with progressive views, just for the hell of it, starting declaring that THEY are communicating with god and discerning his/her intent. For example, declare that you had a vision that god sent a tornado to Oklahoma to punish then for their anti-gay and anti-women legislation. At that point wouldn’t the entire god shows us stuff business model devolve into an endless debate about who is “really” speaking to god? Or, better yet, maybe into some discussion about two different gods, one blue and one red!

    An alternative religious hypothesis, of course, is that there is one God, and Muhammad is the messenger of God. How does Joyner think he can rule this out?

  • caseloweraz

    This fits right in with what the other Christian “discerners” are saying, inasmuch as most of what Islamic extremists are doing to “punish America” takes place in the Middle East and Europe.

    If that were true then Allah would send us as a scourge to punish Muslims for their various failings. Since nothing like that has happened, errr…

    My God is a less vengeful God. He expressed his feeling on gay marriage in last year’s Superbowl when Seattle (gay marriage) trounced Denver (no gay marriage)

    Aw, crap. Are they going to force me to bake them cakes, too?

    But, but I thought the ‘Evulll Mooslims‘ were part of the tag-team with ‘teh big ghay‘…

    Clearly god’s a schizophrenic or a sociopath*.

    I was talking to god the other day and he said “make your own decisions!” When I pestered him more he said I had interrupted his makeout session with Freddy Mercury and was going eradicate humanity with global warming because we burn too many fossil fuels and are otherwise annoying and undeserving of a quick death by drowning. So, there’s that.

    Hmmm… That’s kinda fun. Not believing a fucking thing makes it much easier to unlock creativity.

    I am so fucking not impressed that Joyner has a 101st Airborne patch on his laptop. And I checked, he was never in the military.
