On Burning, the Koran and Pastors Who Lose Their Way

"And many of those who practiced magic brought their books together and began burning them in the sight of everyone; and they counted up the price of them and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver (1 million dollars)." (Acts 19:19) Islam is a false religion. It leads people away from faith in the living Christ. (John 14:6) That being said, to set a literal fire to a stack of Korans ~ and on the anniversary of September 11th no less? ~ well, it's inflammatory (no pun intended). It can only heighten tensions. (It's the same as building a mosque at Ground Zero.) Sometimes people of faith lose their way. (And pastors do, too.) The Apostle Paul wrote: "Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord. 'But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.' Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:17-21) I don't usually quote such a large portion of Scripture, but this was too important. There is a "burning" that the Bible condones, but not of Korans.
