Why are Christians Such Wimps?

When an innocuous cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed was published, Muslims rioted and burned down embassies. But next week, a major Hollywood movie will challenge the veracity of Jesus Christ and Christians are sitting on their hands.
I have not read "The Da Vinci Code" but I understand it asserts that Christ married Mary Magdalene and had children. His descendants are still alive. Essentially it challenges the Bible story and the Christian belief that Christ was the Son of God. It transfers Christ's prestige to an Illuminati-like secret society that is protecting Christ's descendants against the Catholic Church.
The book and movie are yet another blasphemous assault on Christianity trumpeted by the full force of the Illuminati-owned mass media.
Recently Carolyn, a Christian reader from Maine, expressed her frustration in this email.
"Next week with 'the Da Vinci code,' "They" are going to call Jesus a liar as far as His Death and resurrection are concerned. Then they are going to claim his blue blood line. This would make Jesus a liar... wouldn't it? It is so twisted what they are selling and i count myself lucky to have a least read The Scriptures. 'My Feet Are Fitted With Readiness.' (Corinthians 6:15) What is going to be said about Jesus next week is apostasy."
I replied: "People like you should show their outrage publicly."
She replied: "HOW??? With Whom??? Where is the Remnant???"
I shrugged my shoulders. To change the metaphor, why are Christians such lambs? Why do they always need a shepherd to lead them and a flock to be part of? Isn't Christ a personal matter? Can't they act as individuals? Can't they take initiative? Organize a picket or protest in some other imaginative way?
When Muslims in Afghanistan heard that the Koran was being flushed down the toilet in far away Guantonimino Bay, they rioted. For them the battle against Satan is very real, and they are willing to sacrifice their lives. This is why they pose the last remaining religious obstacle to the Satanic New World Order.
Similarly, question the veracity of the Holocaust, and Jews will cite "hate crimes" and put you in jail.
But do the same thing with the central fact of Christianity and there is a call for a boycott from the Catholic Church. Well, dah. That's not very scary.
Why are Christians such wimps? They sat idly by while Christ was crucified! Their reaction wasn't even a factor in that decision.
I have heard various explanations. Christ said, "Turn the other cheek" and "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's."
On the other hand, there is the example of Christ turning over the tables of the moneychangers in the temple. Let's follow Christ's example.
What good are Christian beliefs if you don't stand up for them? Where is the self-respect of Christians if they allow their beliefs to be trampled on?
But it gets worse. Some so-called Christians like George W. Bush are actually willing to serve Satan. Christian chaplains serve with the American army in Iraq and minister to soldiers. Everyone should know Sept. 11 was a hoax designed to justify imperialist wars and domestic repression. It was perpetrated by the Illuminati bankers in London with the help of their puppets in the US government. You just have to look at who bought the Put Options on the airline stock to know the true perpetrators. (Of course this info has been suppressed.)
Christians should file "hate crime" law suits against the makers of "The Da Vinci Code." It seems "tolerance" only applies to those who would destroy Christianity and family. On Judgment Day we will be graded not by what we believed but by what we did. It's time Christians stood up for Christ.

My brother, who is a missionary in southern France sent me a link to your article entitled "Why Are Christians Such Wimps?". In the article you said, "When Muslims in Afghanistan heard that the Koran was being flushed down the toilet in far away Guantanamo Bay, they rioted. For them the battle against Satan is very real, and they are willing to sacrifice their lives."
I say the Muslims are foolish for how they reacted. The Word of God teaches that "The wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God." (James 1:20) and "Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil." (Psalm 37:8) There is such a thing as righteous indignation but rioting is not the answer. "Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord." (Hebrews 10:30)
Peter attempted to stick up for Jesus and was rebuked by Jesus. The soldiers ear, which Peter had wacked off, was miraculously restored by Jesus. "Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath:" (John 18:10-11) In another place the Scripture reads: "...all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword." (Matthew 26:52)
The Bible teaches Christians to, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:21)
The battle isn't ours, it's the Lords. "the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's" (I Samuel 17:47) "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds" (II Corinthians 10:4)
You said, "What good are Christian beliefs if you don't stand up for them? Where is the self-respect of Christians if they allow themselves to be trampled on?" Jesus said, "These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also." (John 14:17-23)
Christians should take their stand for Christ by sharing Him with others.
II Cor. 5:17
