Why is terrorism so popular with God in the Bible and the Quran?

Question by Franco: Why is terrorism so popular with God in the Bible and the Quran?

Genesis 35:5
The terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them.

Exodus 23:27
I will send my fear before thee.

Deuteronomy 2:25
This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.

Deuteronomy 4:34
… by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors….

Judges 16:27-30
Now the house was full of men and women … about three thousand men and women…. And Samson called unto the LORD, and said … strengthen me … that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines…. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood….. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.

2 Corinthians 5:11
Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men


3:151 “We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve.”

4:74 “Fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

4:76 “Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil.”

4:91 “Take them and kill them wherever ye find them. Against such We have given you clear warrant.”

8:12 “I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.”

21:97 “Behold them, staring wide (in terror), the eyes of those who disbelieve!”

33:35-36 “Allah repulsed the disbelievers. … He brought those of the People of the Scripture who supported them down from their strongholds, and cast panic into their hearts. Some ye slew, and ye made captive some.

59:2 “He it is Who hath caused those of the People of the Scripture who disbelieved to go forth from their homes unto the first exile. Ye deemed not that they would go forth, while they deemed that their strongholds would protect them from Allah. But Allah reached them from a place whereof they recked not, and cast terror in their hearts so that they ruined their houses with their own hands and the hands of the believers. So learn a lesson, O ye who have eyes!”

59:13 “Ye are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah.

    Because God has the power to take us all out whenever he wants to. So he should be feared.

    you need to believe in GOD in your heart to understand HIM. I don’t know about the koran though!

    All the verses from the Quran are attributed in the way of Allah, as in a religious war.
    It states explicitly in the Quran that we are not allowed to initiate a religious war unless the enemy does something FIRST, and even then we are only allowed to do to them what they do to us (eye for eye, tooth for a tooth)
    We’re also not allowed to kill children, women, monks or ANYONE not in the battlefield.. and raiding homes and raping women is the action of someone who is NOT Muslim.
    Also, terrorism is completely unacceptable in Islam as mutation of the body is HARAM, and when you blow up bombs, you’re mutating the body into millions of pieces.

    You have the wrong concept of terrorism here. God punishing the disbelievers because of their ungratefulness and disbelief in their OWN GOD, while HE was the one that fashioned you when you were in your WOMB and presented all these blessings for us… and then people like you do these kind of things!
    So retaliation that God takes on the disbelievers is between them and their Lord, not us to judge.

    It’s popular for much the same reason both books claim they must be true because of all the miraculous things their prophets and messiahs did RIGHT BEFORE you showed up, but refuse to give a repeat performance now that you’re here because unlike everyone who got treated to the show, you’re supposed to take it on faith. You better believe they were brilliant, though. Just ask anyone who witnessed… oh yeah, there aren’t any witnesses left, but if they were here, they’d sure tell you it was amazing.

    It’s popular for the same reason the god of the Bible and the Qur’an promise to give you a reward for all your hard work and worship JUST AFTER no one can check with you to see if the goods were delivered.

    Have you not caught on to this song and dance by now?

    All the evidence was shown around just before anyone who could check up on the story came along, and all riches and rewards and everything you could ever possibly want can be yours just as soon as no one who can check up on the story is around any more, and if you don’t believe the people telling you that and go along with them, oh, you’ll be sorry. You just wait. As soon as you die and no one can ask, you’ll be so sorry, because five minutes after you can’t tell anyone whether what you’ve heard all along is true, God will hurt you and he won’t just do it for a little while. No, he’ll do it forever and ever… just as soon as no one can look to see if he is. The instant no one can prove anything, that’s when it will all happen. You just wait and see.

    In the meantime… in this life where all the rewards seem to be and it’s easy to prove things? Well, you aren’t allowed to question things now. You aren’t allowed to have proof now. You’re just supposed to do what you’re told and give the people telling this story whatever they demand from you now. After all, that’s what God expects of you.

    The OT was all about separating a people group and forming a nation that worshipped God alone in order to provide a spiritually safe environment for the birth and childhood of His promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. It was necessary for the salvation of the world (including you) that God loves so much that His Son be raised within a nation who worshipped Him alone and not the Baal (satanic) worshippers of the surrounding nations – Israel had to be protected and kept clean of idolatry in order that our Saviour could lead a sinless life from birth to death.

    Satan of course had other ideas, he was every bit aware of the promised “seed” that would crush his head and was continually on the alert for the birth of the Messiah, i.e. the death of the Hebrew baby boys in Egypt, mistaking Moses’ birth for Jesus’ and the death of the baby boys in Bethlehem was his attempt to kill him as a child. Satanic worship filled the surrounding tribes and his goal was therefore to stop Israel from becoming a nation or infiltrate them with idolatry and stop the coming Messiah.

    The OT is the battle between good and evil. The NT is the victory of good over evil and the promise of salvation to all who will believe in Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

    The difference is, Jesus paid the full price for the penalty of the law, and now there is grace instead of the penalty of the law. The Muslims still live under law, and still enforce the penalty of the law, because they have not received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Unless Muslims become born again, they will never know the forgiveness of God, but only God’s wrath, which was poured out on Jesus on the cross. We have been forgiven, and Romans 10:9-10 is how to receive God’s forgiveness through Jesus.
