‘the religious police…. worse than the vilest criminal’

Saudi Arabia: Muslim Father Kills Daughter for Converting to Christianity. The article was posted on 08/13/2008 on Persecution.org International Christian Concern.

The article states that the father worked for the mutaween (Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice).


The Mutaween (Arabic: مطوعين‎ muṭawiʿiyn; variant English spellings: mutawwain, muttawa, mutawallees, mutawa’ah, mutawi’, mutawwa’) means “volunteer” in Arabic is commonly used as a casual term for the government-authorized or -recognized religious police (or clerical police) of Saudi Arabia. More recently the term has gained use as an umbrella term outside the Arab-speaking world to indicate religious-policing organizations in Islamic countries with at least some government recognition or deference, who enforce varied interpretations of Sharia Law.

While reading of the mutaween and their attempts to police religion, my mind was taken back to the religious police of our Lord’s day…

I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.   Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. John 8: 37-45

Now the religious police massacred themselves under a sorted fronts, but they all have a spirit that is birthed in religion and that of their father, ‘the devil’.

They hate Truth and the Lord of it and seek to destroy the Spirit of Truth that has taken up His abode in the children of Truth, while all along thinking they do God’s service, they fulfil the lust of their god ‘the devil’.

Pray that the children of Light will stand in the midst of darkness.
