History of Religion; Muslim Demographics, the World

by Steve Ray on October 4, 2014

Watch this 7 minute video (below) titled: MUSLIM DEMOGRAPHICS: THE TIDAL WAVE (15 million have viewed this video)

 

See the world your grandchildren will know–different from the world we know today. It is my opinion that Islam is maybe the greatest threat to the world, to peace and to freedom. Islamophobic, hysteric?

Hardly. I am realistic. And if so many Americans were not so naive and politically correct, we would be concerned and smarten up about who and what we allow in our country. ISIS, Hamas and Alqaeda are just the tip of the iceburg. 

Scary stuff!

Last month I gave a talk in Ann Arbor entitled “The Foundations of our Faith: Scripture, Tradition & Magisterium.” (Watch the video below.) As I love to do, I tied the Old and New Testaments together and showed the continuity that lays the foundation for who and what we are as Catholics today. 

But my second purpose was to show how I do my research these days. I have given away about 1/2 of my books because I rarely use my 20,000 volume library any more because I have Logos’ Verbum Catholic and Bible Software. The future of Bible and Catholic study is here. There is nothing like Verbum.

The talk was video-taped and you can see me (kind of dark to the right) but you can easily see the screen where my friend and Verbum associate demonstrated how powerful it is and how it puts whole libraries at your fingertips.

To learn more about Verbum visit my Verbum page and if you use STEVE in the Promo Code you get a 15% discount.

I began using Logos over 20 years ago when it was still a Protestant and when Logos was solely Protestant. I urged them over the years and worked with them to develop a Catholic package. I even gave talks at their corporate offices in Washington State. 

Three years ago they DID IT and the result is stupendous. There is nothing else like it. Study Scripture, the Tradition, the Catechism, the Lectionary with reading and saints and more. Delve into the Hebrew and Greek without even knowing the original languages. Use Bible dictionaries, read the Fathers of the Church….

Kenneth Copeland is a Pentecostal preacher who has championed the “name it, claim it” tradition in Protestantism. He has an “empire” which he has built that spreads across the world with tens of thousands of followers, or more.

I remember as a teenager listening to him on TV and radio with my parents. Many of our friends at the time were followers of his teachings.

There would have been no more unlikely candidate to correspond lovingly back-and-forth on video with Pope Francis than Copeland. He admits this himself in the video. And he even brought up a Anglican priest named Tony Palmer to address his auditorium full of Charismatic leaders at their leader’s conference. The topic was unity and the end of the protest of Protestantism. Quite amazing actually.

This video shows the Kenneth Copeland leadership conference giving a prime-time slot to Anglican Bishop. Tony Palmer to share that the whole basis of the Protestant Reformation is now resolved and there no more reason for protestation.

The Pope spontaneously addressing Copeland's conference

He then shows a personal video that Bp. Tony made of Pope Francis addressing the conference participants, decrying the sins that have created our separation and asking for their prayers. Then Kenneth Copeland and leaders respond praying in the Spirit for Pope Francis and sending him back a video telling him that they love him!

This video is 45 minutes long and worth watching. It is divided up this way:

It starts with Kenneth Copeland praying and introducing Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer who gives his story of his conversion to liturgical worship and his friendship with Pope Francis before he was pope.

Then we see a video the Pope sent to Kenneth Copeland and his leadership conference and Kenneth Copeland the conference responding back to the Pope. Quite remarkable and demonstrates a move toward unity in much of Christianity.

You can watch the video by clicking on either of the images above.
