He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them. Luke 21:8
Christianity Is Incrementally Giving Way To Islam

On the one hand ISIS is murdering hundreds of thousands of Christians in the Middle East and North Africa, while on the other hand Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services is financing the conversion of Christian churches into Muslim Mosques right here in America.
Chrislam is the merging of Christianity and Islam, and of course Christianity is eventually diluted and destroyed. This however, is the absolute ‘replacement’ of Christianity by Islam which is of course the very purpose, ultimate agenda, and goal of Islam.
Muslims cut down, paint over 10,000 crosses to convert former Roman Catholic Church to an Islamic Mosque. Plan is approved by US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board, and funded by your tax dollars.
In addition to being yet another violation of the establishment of religion clause in the First Amendment under the Islamic Obama Regime, this is an ominous sign of our times, a sign of the spread of Islam in America, and the collapse of Christianity. The breaking of crosses and conversion of churches into mosques is widespread in Europe, but is just beginning in America. So if you want to see exactly what is in store for America tomorrow, look at what is happing in Europe today.
Islam does not fall into the category of a recognized religion under the First Amendment any more than Nazism does, and yet Obama puts it on the highest rung of the ladder saying that “America is no longer a Christian Nation, it is now a Muslim Nation.” Moreover he will do everything he can to fulfill his prophecy. Note: Muslim prophecies are all self-fulfilling.
For Muslims, this and similar conversions of churches to mosques are seen as early fulfillment of one of Muhammad’s prophecies about the end times, when, Muslims believe, Jesus will return to “break the crosses”:
Isa (the Muslim Jesus) will return and “fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill the swine, abolish the jizya” and establish the rule of Allah/Sharia throughout the world” (Hadith from Sunan Abu Dawud, Book of Battles, 37:4310).
The Islamic State (aka ISIS/ISIL), Al Qaeda and other jihadi groups hold to this apocalyptic scenario, as Ryan Mauro notes: “Their offensiveness at the sight of a cross [is Satanic and] comes from these Islamic teachings [about the cross] about Sharia. Since they believe Jesus finds it so offensive that he will one day break the crosses, these Islamists believe they are commanded to likewise be offended by Christianity and the symbol of the cross in particular… Islamist terrorists like Al-Qaeda can cite authoritative Sharia rulings to show that attacks on Christianity are permitted before Jesus’ descent from heaven.”
When Islamists destroy crosses or talk of destroying the cross, they are emulating the anger they believe Jesus has towards the cross.
The closed parish was named “Holy Trinity.” Those familiar with the Quran know that it vehemently rejects the Christian revelation of God as a Trinity:
“Say not “Trinity”; desist: It will be better for you: For God is One God: Glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. . . .” (Sura 4:173)
“They do blaspheme who say: “God is Christ the son of Mary . . .” They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them” (Sura 5:75,78)
The number of crosses covered over — 10,000 — is a deeply symbolic number, and was no doubt chosen by the Holy Trinity Church founders based on Revelation 5:11:
“Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands…”
Such is the significance of the 10,000 crosses, and the name of the former parish, Holy Trinity. It was one of the most visible, symbolic representations of the Christian presence in Syracuse, and in New York State and the United States by extension.
Immigration of Jihad
Importantly, the “breaking of the crosses” in Syracuse is a direct result of the growing Muslim jihadist population, and the success of Islam’s immigration jihad (or hijra). Amazingly, the sale of the church for conversion to a mosque was enabled by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Just as the Pope allied himself with Hitler’s Nazis in the 1940’s, today Pope aliens himself with ISIS and Sharia Law.
Per Counter Jihad Report: While the US Catholic population has grown by more than half to 69 million according to Catholic World News, nevertheless 1,800 parishes have closed over the past 20 years.
One of those parish churches that closed is Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Syracuse, New York, that held its last Mass in February 2010. Now, it is being purchased and converted into a Mosque by the burgeoning Muslim population in Central New York. The irony is that this is being abetted by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, one of the leading voluntary agencies, VOLAGS, engaged in processing refugee resettlement. It and contractors are financed by US taxpayers under programs administered by our State and Health and Human Services Departments.
Muslims converting a church to a mosque, breaking and covering over ten-thousand crosses, all enabled through inter-faith dialogue with Catholic bishops, using taxpayer dollars, this hearkens back to the days of the dhimmah contract and the Pact of Omar. Consider this an early installment of Jizya.
The six crosses were removed and replaced at the end of June. Four of them were massive: 600 pounds of concrete each, and more than 4 feet tall. The step was the last, and most visible, in the building’s change from church to mosque.
The transformation has been a series of careful choices aimed at balancing the forces of two religions in a neighborhood that is shifting. The North Side, once full of Italian and German immigrants, is increasingly home to new Americans who are refugees from countries where Islam is the dominant religion.
Even as the crosses were cut from the church spires on the outside, and 10,000 crosses were painted over on the inside, the new owners of 501 Park St. tried to leave what they could, and reuse what they couldn’t.
The wood from the pews has been repurposed to fix the floor, which is where Muslims sit to pray. Painters worked to make the minbar, the pulpit where the imam stands, blend in with the stonework. The name of the mosque is Masjid Isa Ibn
Maryam, which translates to Mosque of Jesus Son of Mary.
The cost to buy and transform the church was $300,000.000 and counting, said Yusuf Soule, the volunteer director of the North Side Learning Center, which bought the property and is overseeing the mosque construction.
The city allowed Soule’s group to take the crosses down, but it also required them to keep the crosses at 501 Park St. Soule said the hope is that the crosses can be kept in a way that lets the public see them. But the final plan hasn’t been worked out.
Why would the city allow them to take down the crosses then keep them on site? Don’t hold your breath waiting for a plan.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Today it is the conversion of buildings from Christian to Muslim, tomorrow it will be the conversion of Christians to Islam. Is this the history we want to leave for future generations? America will become an Islamic State if Muslim immigration is not halted and/or reversed very soon.
Building on the premise that one must know who ones enemy is if one will have a prayer of defeating him…how much teaching in your church have you received about what Islam really is…and the evil god behind it?
You might want to ask your Pastor before’ the inevitable war with Islam begins.
