A Warning to the Free World from an Ex-Muslim

I believe today we face as great a threat in America as we have ever faced in our history, and that threat is Islam. We must understand that we are involved in super-powerful spiritual warfare. This is not a war of Islam versus Christianity. It is a war of Islam against everybody that is not submitted to Allah.

Since its inception 1400 years ago, Islam has been at war with the people of this planet. Millions of people have been literary butchered with the sword of Islam. Some may argue that all religions at one point in time have committed crimes against humanity. That may be so, but none of the existing world religions’ foundations have been based upon shedding the blood of its innocent victims. Islam lives, breathes and grows on blood. Once one takes away this red element from Islam, Islam will vanish completely. Islam cannot possibly live in the hearts and minds of its believers. Islam needs to shed the blood of the infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. Islam is about world domination.

We have no resentment or animosity towards Muslims because we know that they’re living in deception under a pall of spiritual darkness. The ultimate resolution to this threat is found in taking the Great Commission serious and by the power of the gospel seeing masses of them become life-long learners and lovers of Jesus.

The following is the testimony of an ex-Muslim who reveals the goals of Islam for the world in general and America in particular:

“I was born and raised as a Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Muslim. I am an insider who knows the Islamic brain. I left Islam when I understood that it is a sick and evil religion.

The following is the Islamic message to the West.

To the infidels of the West:

The Constitution for the new Islamic Republic of EU and USA is under construction. We will fight the infidel to death. Meanwhile American laws will protect us. Democrats and Leftist will support us. United Nations Organizations will legitimize us. CAIR will incubate us. ACLU will empower us. Western Universities will educate us. Mosques will shelter us, OPEC will finance us, and Hollywood will love us. Koffi Annan (was Secretary General of the UN at this time) will pass politically correct sympathetic statement for Jihadists.

Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the USA and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education on full scholarships. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s education and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad. We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about an Islamic Country’s interest than USA interest. We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidels. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyrs for Allah.

We will take over the Europe first and then USA will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the USA. Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mix with the intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to engage in Jihad when the time comes.

Who are we? We are the “sleeper cells.” We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary.

At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine the news in the world, “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”. We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women”, Keep your Nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carrier or high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can’t use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take the advantage of your higher moral standard and use it against you.

We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bomber against you. Visualize the news flash all over the world, …Moslem mother is sobbing, ….crying. ….Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundreds of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad. West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.

You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us? On the camera: We will always say, “Islam is the religion of Peace.” We will say, “Jihad is actually inner Jihad.” Moderate Muslims will say there is no link between Islam and Terrorism and the West will believe it because the West is so gullible. Moderate Muslims all over the world will incubate Jihadists by their talk in defending Islam.

Using Western Legal system we will assert our Sharia Laws, slowly but surely. We will increase in number. We will double again. You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next-door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite, humble that will make you say, “wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people”, But, we will stab you in your back when you are sleeping as we did on 911. There will be more 911 in Europe and in America. We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.” Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC (all of these are Muslim organizations) and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt.

The war of civilizations has just begun. We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar (God is Great) before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will video tape those and send it to all infidels to watch. They will surrender – ISLAM means surrender. We will use your own values of kindness against you. You are destined to lose. This is very depressing for you, isn’t it?

Let’s see the effectiveness of Islamic warfare. Muslims vs. the West. THE RULE HAS CHANGED. There is new game in town. Bill Clinton ordered 50 Tomahawks Cruise missiles costing $100,000,000 each to destroy $50 mud houses that belonged to Osama’s family. What a stupidity? What a poor ROI (Return On Investment) In return Osama’s attack on the US. Cost: 19 martyrs and less than $500,000. Cost to the West: over 3,000 dead. At least $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) dollars economical loss in one year. This includes the ripple effect. Osama’s ROI with respect to: life = 3,000/19 = 158 fold. Dollar = $1 trillion/500K = 2,000,000 fold That is modern warfare.

The West will lose. Allah-Hu-Akbar. Islam will rule the world. There is nothing you can do. Even if the per capita GDP of the world drops to half of its present level as a consequence of Islamic laws in place all over the world but still Islam will rule the word. From your point of view we bring to the world to the dark ages, so be it. But still Islam wins, West losses. Are you sure you want to play this game? Jihad, ..Jihad…Jeeehaaad… You are destined to lose.

Allah-hu-Akbar -SOTT [Sight of the Truth].

Saudi Arabia’s $100 billion investment over the last 3 decades on over 60 thousands mosque and schools all over the Islamic world is finally paying off.

While the West was busy inventing medicine, increasing life expectancy, elevating human suffering, decoding human gene to find cure for Cancer, heart disease etc, launching space shuttle, inventing internet, working on new laws/theory for human rights, developing better economical models for a more prosperous world, while ACLU was gaining control over common sense, while American ingenuity was benefiting the rest of the world, we Muslims were busy producing over 200 million out of 1.4 billion, Walking, Talking, Non-Thinking, West-Hating, Pre-Programmed, Suicidal, Parasitic, Terrorist Robots. You can’t win. The Genie is out of the bottle. We will use American’s kindness, fairness, compassion, freedom of speech and non-discriminatory policy against them. We will stab them in the back. What are you going to do? You are doomed. SOTT [Sight of the Truth]-

Islam: Muhammad vs. Christ

June 17, 2011 by

Muhammad denied that Jesus was the Son of God; that Jesus died on the cross; that Jesus was the Savior. He taught that Jesus was only one of many prophets of which he, Muhammad, was the greatest. Yet, how could he be greater than Jesus Christ? Jesus was born of a virgin and was sinless in nature and the doer of mighty miracles such as raising the dead. But there was nothing superior about Muhammad’s birth or life. He never made the lame to walk, the blind to see or the dead to live. Allah even commanded him to repent of his many sins. How then can be greater than the Christ?

The contrast between Jesus and Muhammad could not be greater. While Jesus forbade the use of force to convert people (Matthew 26:51-54), Muhammad commanded his followers in the Qur’an (Sura IX.5) to force people to accept Islam by war, plunder, slavery or the threat of death!

Who is Jesus to a Muslim, and what do they believe about Him? The truth is that everything they understand of Jesus is wrong because of the teaching from the Koran. The only thing that they agree with is his being a prophet, the virgin birth, and his being sinless and that he performed miracles. They deny the only Gospel that saves. Claiming he did not die and rise again, they claim he was taken to heaven alive because God does not have true prophets killed.

When saying His name or any other prophets name, the Muslim will always add the phrase ‘Peace be upon Him” in respect. While we can acknowledge their respectfulness, we must remember that the Bible says that it was our sin that was upon Him. This is the very reason He came and His peace is upon us who believe this. (Isa. 53:5 “The punishment for our peace He took upon Himself.”) Muslims call Jesus the Spirit of God, but this term also does not mean he was God Himself according to the Islamic interpretation. They believe Jesus lived a sinless life without fault, performed miracles, and ascended bodily into Heaven, and that his primary mission was to pave the way for the ultimate and final prophet – Muhammad.

Dr. Ted Baehr notes some of the differences between Mohammed and Christ:

“Mohammed was the prophet of war; Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7).

Mohammed’s disciples killed for the faith; Christ’s disciples were killed for their faith (Acts 12:2; 2 Tim. 4:7).

Mohammed promoted persecution against the”infidels”; Christ forgave and converted the chief persecutor (1 Tim. 1:13-15).

Mohammed was the taker of life; Christ is the giver of life (John 10:27-28).

Mohammed and his fellow warriors murdered thousands; Christ murdered none but saved many (John 12:48).

Mohammed’s method was COMPULSION; Christ’s aim was CONVERSION (Acts 3:19).

Mohammed practiced FORCE; Christ preached FAITH (John 6:29, 35).

Mohammed was a WARRIOR; Christ is a DELIVERER (Col. 1:13; 1 Thess. 1:10).

Mohammed said to the masses, ”Convert or die!”; Christ said, ”Believe and live!”   (John 6:47; 11:25-26).

Mohammed was swift to shed blood (Rom. 3:15-17); Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Eph. 1:7).

Mohammed preached ”Death to the infidels!”; Christ prayed ”Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).

Mohammed declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels; Christ achieved a holy victory on Calvary’s cross (Col. 2:14-15) and His followers share in that victory (John 16:33).

Mohammed constrained people by conquest; Christ constrained people by love (2 Cor. 5:14).

Modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Mohammed and carry out their despicable atrocities in the name of his god; Christians derive their inspiration from the One who said, ”Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matthew 5:9).

Modern day disciples of Mohammed respond to the terrorist attacks by cheering in the streets; modern day disciples of Christ are deeply grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were ”Christians” in name only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).

Many Muslims are peaceful and peace-loving because they do not strictly follow the teachings of their founder; many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Rom. 12:17-21).

Mohammed called upon his servants to fight; Jesus said, ”My kingdom is not of this world; if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight . . . but now is My kingdom not from here” (John 18:36)

Mohammed ordered death to the Jews; Christ ordered that the Gospel be preached ”to the Jew first” (Rom. 1:16).

The Koran says, ”Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them” (Qu’ran 9.5); Christ said, ”Preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).

Mohammed’s mission was to conquer the world for Allah; Christ’s mission was to conquer sin’s penalty and power by substitutionary atonement (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:18).

Mohammed claimed that there was but one God, Allah; Christ claimed that He was God  (John 10:30-31; John 8:58-59; John 5:18; John 14:9).

Mohammed’s Tomb: OCCUPIED! Christ’s tomb: EMPTY!”

The conflict between Christ and Muhammad cannot be ignored. Either Jesus is Lord or Muhammad was a false prophet. But Muhammad is dead, while Jesus is alive forevermore.

Mark Steyn writes, “Western civilization – wedded to multiculturalism that undercuts its own confidence, a welfare state that nudges it toward sloth and self-indulgence, and a childlessness that consigns it to oblivion – is looking ever more like the ruins of a civilization.”

This is very scary and will come true unless God’s people recover a God-centered, Christ-exalting, cross-shaped, kingdom empowered, gospel-based outlook that sees the current situation as the greatest opportunity in history to bring masses of radical Muslims to faith in Christ! We must begin to stop trembling in fear and start ministering in faith because we have eyes to see what the natural man cannot – that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe!

Islam: Is it a Religion of Peace?

June 9, 2011 by  
Filed under Wade's Weekly Word

We, in the Western world, are far too ignorant of the second largest religion in the world. We are naive regarding the intentions of Islam and ignorant of its history. The very “root” of Islam is in military conquest, and the “fruit” we observe today springs forth from this root.

In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks, President George W. Bush characterized Islam as a “religion of peace.” Many people agree with that belief, saying the vast majority of Muslims live peaceful lives. The president gave a politically correct statement, but the truth is totally to the contrary.

Islam in Arabic means submission, surrender or subjugation. A Muslim is one who submits. The Arabic word for peace is Salam. Islam is the active form of Salam. Muslims see themselves as a “peace making force” using argument, intrigue, commerce, threats, terrorism, warfare and every other means possible to secure Islam as the only religion worldwide.
Muslims are not permitted to make peace with a non-Muslim country until its inhabitants surrender to Islam. They can agree to a cease fire for a period of time – but never to peace with non Muslims.

In the Western world, our understanding of “peace” differs to a great extent from that of the Middle Easterner. To the Middle Easterner, “peace” connotes the idea of “having your foot on your enemy’s neck” i.e.; “surrender” or “submission.” To the Muslim, peace can only come when there is a surrender and submission to Allah. I dare say, this is a far cry from what most Westerners mean by “peace.”

The relentless and often vicious persecution by Muslims against Christians is seldom recognized or understood. Many assume that the concept of Jihad, or holy war, espoused by Muslim leaders like the Aytollah Khomeini and demonstrated in terror bombings are aberrations not truly representative of Islam. They call those who engage in such reprehensible acts as radical Muslim fundamentalists, but in reality these are the true and dedicated Muslims.

The following were the often repeated public pronouncements of the Ayatollah Khomeini after the revolution in Iran in 1979: “We shall export our revolution, to the whole world. Until the cry ‘Allah Akbar’ (God is great) resounds over the whole world. There will be struggle. There will be Jihad . . . Islam is the religion of militant individuals . . . Islam will be victorious in all the countries of the world, and Islam and the teachings of the Quran will prevail all over the world . . . This is the duty that all Muslims must fulfill . . .”

What few Westerners understand, however, is that those Muslim leaders who call for the overthrow of all governments and the establishment of an Islamic super-state controlling all aspects of life for every person on earth are not extremists on the fringe of Islam. Actually, Jihad, the subjugation and forcible conversion of all people to Islam and world domination are central tenants of Islam. Jihad is ranked by many Muslims as the sixth pillar of Islam.

Jihad was so important to the founder of Islam, Muhammad, that he declared it to be the second most important deed in Islam.

“Allah’s apostle was asked, ‘What is the best deed?’ He replied, ‘To believe in Allah and his Apostle.’ The questioner then asked, ‘What is the next (in goodness)?’ He replied, ‘To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s cause.’” – The Hadith, Al Bukhari, Vol. 1 no 25.

Muslims, in fact, divide the world into two sectors: Dar-al-Islam (the House of Islam) and Dar-al-Harb (The House of War). The only countries considered to be at peace are those where Islamic law (the Sharia) is enforced.

What does Islam teach regarding the concept of JIHAD? One finds many injunctions in the Koran exhorting believers to defend and spread the faith. The character of this defense is determined by how one interprets the doctrine of jihad (The word means a “struggle for the faith.”), which is discussed in numerous verses in the Koran. In one sense, it is understood as the individual’s struggle with his own nature to follow the precepts of Allah. But one cannot deny that it also calls for one to literally fight for his faith. Philip K. Hitti, in his book entitled Islam in the West, describes it this way: “The doctrine of jihad (“holy war”) divided the world into two realms, the abode of peace and the abode of war, and made it incumbent upon the believer to keep on pushing the wall between the two until the whole world is Islamized – reminiscent of the modern communist theory. He who fell on the battlefield was promised immediate entry into Paradise.”

Allow me to quote from the Koran. From reading its injunctions, it is quite easy to see the justification the Islamic terrorists find for their actions.

O believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Let them find firmness in you. (Sura: 9, Ayat:123)

Fight those who believe not… even if they be People of the Book until they have willing agreed to pay the tribute in recognition of their submissive state. (Sura: 9, Ayat:29)

You will be called to fight a mighty nation; fight them until they embrace Islam. (Sura: 48, Ayat:16)

Then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them. And seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them, in every stratagem (of war). (Sura: 9, Ayat:5)

Based on the actions of Muhammad, its history, and the words of the Koran, we must conclude that Islam is not, nor has never been a religion of peace. Therefore, the real answer to Islamic terrorism will not be found in physical weapons of war. It is a religious system which will continue to produce followers, who will faithfully wage jihad against the “infidels.” They will not play the game of “leave us alone and we will leave you alone.” It’s against their religion. The real answers is in converting them to Christianity (as the Celts did the barbarous Vikings) and, thus, transform the Islamic nations into Christian ones. Is that not what the Great Commission tells us to do? To disciple the nations and teach them to obey Christ’s commandments (Mt. 28:19-20).

It maybe that the current situation is part of God’s strategy to open the Islamic world to Christian missionaries in an unprecedented way. I pray that this is so, because I know of no other hope for the world apart from the Prince of Peace and His gospel.

The Quran teaches that Muslims are superior to others: “Ye (Muslims) are the best of peoples evolved for mankind . . .” Surah 3:110.

Muslims are forbidden to befriend Jews or Christians: “O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is one of them . . .” Surah 5:54.

Islam instructs its adherents to fight until their opponents submit. Christians and Jews may be spared if they pay “Jizya” – a penalty tax – with willing submission:

“Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day . . . Nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book, until they pay Jizya (tribute taxes) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” Surah 9:29. “Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait (ambush) for them in every strategem (of war) . . .” Surah 9:5 (also 2:193).

For those who resist Islam – execution or mutilation is decreed: “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution or crucifixion, or the cutting off of the hands and feet from opposite sides or exile from the land . . .” Surah 5:33.

The Hadith, which is a record of the words and deeds of Muhammad, is also viewed by Muslims as inspired. Next to the Quran, it is the most important source of Islamic Law. It’s teachings are regarded as binding on all Muslims.

The Hadith teaches that apostasy is punishable by death: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.” Vol. 9:57.

A Muslim may not be punished for killing a non-Muslim: “No Muslim should be killed for killing a kafir (infidel).” Vol 9:50

Those who die in holy war are guaranteed to go to Heaven. “The person who participates in Jihad (Holy battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to paradise (if he is killed).” Vol 1:35

It may be hard for Christians to understand the concept of such a militant religion, but the primary aim of Islam is not spiritual but political. The ultimate purpose of Islam is the establishment by force of a worldwide Islamic state where Sharia law is enforced on all.

To achieve this is the goal of Jihad. Islamic scholars identify a multitude of forms that Jihad can take:

1. There is the Jihad of Words. Muhammad was a brilliant and gifted orator silencing his enemies in a war of words. In Arab culture it was customary for feuding tribes to select a poet to mock and provoke the opposing forces with spontaneous verses of cursing. These linguistic warriors engaged in verbal combat seeking to inspire their own side with a sense of superiority and strength whilst undermining the morale of the enemy. This war of words, which Muslim leaders today still engage in, is actually a war of nerves.

2. There is the Jihad of Deception. When Muslims are small in number they can follow the example of Muhammad’s 83 followers who fled from persecution in Mecca to Abyssinia (present day Ethiopia). There the Christian Negus (king) offered them refuge. When the Meccans demanded their return as slaves, the Muslim exiles declared that Islam was merely a variation of Christianity. The Muslims selectively recited those passages of the Quran that agree with the Bible such as the virgin birth and miracles of Jesus and His ascension to Heaven and ultimate return. They remained silent on the unbridgeable differences (such as the denial of the Trinity and the atonement) between the Quran and the Bible. As a result the Christian Abyssinians protected the Muslims from the Meccans.

In this way, when it was most vulnerable, Islam grew and developed in a Christian environment. (If we only demonstrate our Christian love without proclaiming the truth of the Gospel we could strengthen anti-Christian forces.)

Muhammad compromised with the Meccan merchants during a particularly intense time of persecution. Formerly he had fearlessly condemned polytheism. Then, under pressure, he accepted the Meccan belief that Allah had a wife, Al-lat, and two daughters, Al Uzzo and Manat (Surah 53:20-23). Later Muhammad repudiated these so called Satanic Verses and claimed that all previous prophets had been tempted by demonic influence.

3. There is the Jihad of the Sword. After fleeing to Medina (the Hijra) in AD622, Muhammad started to summon his followers to attack and plunder the caravans of Mecca. His followers initially resisted these calls until Muhammad presented a series of “revelations” commanding Jihad (holy war) and permitting looting (“Whoever has killed an enemy and has proof of that, will possess his spoils” – The Hadith, Vol. 4 no. 370). Where the booty was not large enough, Muhammad held captives as hostages until their families paid a high ransom for their release. Hostage taking has continued to be a common practice in Islam to this day. Those who participate in Jihad are granted a blanket absolution (Surah 8:17) and guaranteed to go straight to Paradise (Heaven) if killed.

4. There is the Jihad of Taxation and Financial Reward. Those who refuse to submit to Islam are forced to pay a special tax for non- Muslims (In Arabic this is called Jizya). Those who convert to Islam are often offered financial rewards or scholarships.

5. There is the Jihad of Slavery. Those Muslims who engage in Jihad not only can seize property, extort ransoms and demand taxes, but also capture slaves. The only places in the world today where slavery is still practiced are in some Muslim countries. In Sudan, the Islamic government uses slavery as an incentive to encourage Arab Northerners to attack the Christian Blacks in the South, and as a weapon of terror to destabilize non-Muslims. According to the Sharia Law, Muslims are allowed to enslave, own and sell human beings.

6. There is the Jihad of the Sharia Law. Non-Muslims are degraded to a lower class status and are denied equal access to the law because their testimony is not valid against a Muslim. This even applies to murder (“No Muslim should be killed for killing an infidel”). The death penalty is applied to anyone who renounces Islam and converts to another religion. Islam does not place much value on personal faith, but demands surrender to the political rule of the Sharia.

7. There is the Jihad of Polygamy. The devastating defeat of the Muslim forces by the Meccans in the battle of Uhud (AD625) led to what could be considered one of Islam’s greatest victories. This is true due to the fact that so many of his men were killed that Muhammad permitted them to take up to 4 wives (Surah 4:3, 4). With the advent of Western medicine, infant mortality has plummeted. And the Muslim birthrate has skyrocketed. Muslims are increasing in number twice as fast as other religions. This is due to birth control and abortion in Western lands and polygamy in Muslim lands. Muslims are not increasing much by missionary outreaches, but by having many children. Polygamy (rather than persuasion) has become one of Islam’s most effective weapons for Holy War, providing Islam with a disproportionate numerical advantage.

8. There is the Jihad of the Spirits. According to the Quran, Muslims are not only men and women but also spirits who fight for the spread of Islam (Surah 46:29-33 and 72:1-15). Also a Muslim is to fight on Muhammad’s behalf both in his life and after his death (Hadith Vol. 1 chapter 43).

Clearly Islam is a religion of force which denies basic freedom. No Muslim even has the freedom to change or leave his religion. The huge block of over 1 billion Muslims presents the greatest political and military threat to the Western world and the greatest missionary challenge to the Christian Church. Muslim states are the most severe persecutors of Christians, and Muslim terrorist groups are the most vicious hijackers, kidnappers, bombers and assassins. As the recent East African bombings remind us, Islam is a challenge that we cannot ignore.

How we chose to respond, in prayer, publications, proclamation, projects and persistent vigilance will determine much of the course of history in the coming 21st century. (This article is taken from Frontline Fellowship by  Dr. Peter Hammond)

Islam: Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God?

June 3, 2011 by  
Filed under Wade's Weekly Word

Dear Christian Brother/Sister,

There is a new trend, these days, among well-meaning Christians, that calls for understanding, making dialogue and building bridges between Christianity and Islam. These words may sound good, but unfortunately, in many cases they have been wrongly applied.

True understanding occurs when we try to know both the attractive side of Islam and the ugly side. True dialogue occurs when we listen to them and we insist they listen to us. True bridge-building occurs when the bridges we build with them go both ways. True love occurs when we tell them they are wrong if we know that they are wrong.

The Muslim’s message to Christians in the West, these days is,” We have a lot in common, we are similar, accept us, listen to us…”

It is a ploy, don’t believe it; they use it only to spread their religion. After they gain the upper hand, Muslims’ message will be, “We have nothing in common with you, you are infidels who worship three gods, and follow a corrupt Bible. You are dhimmis (non-Muslims in an Islamic society who are subjugated and second-class citizens) who must accept Islam or pay jizya (a penalty tax) for being Christians…”

Then, there would be no understanding between Muslims and Christians, no dialogues, and no bridges….

Don’t let Muslims deceive you into believing that Islam is a legitimate extension of Christianity. The Bible makes it clear that, “last of all,” God the Father sent His Son Jesus (Matthew 21:37), and that the Bible is God’s last revelation (Revelation 22:18). Jesus warns, “There shall arise false prophets, that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:24

Nothing In Common

By Abdullah Al Araby 

Islam, in the West, is fighting its battle of acceptance and legitimacy. Muslim activists are working fervently trying to improve Islam’s image. Their goal is to create an environment in which Islam can be easily propagated. Their tool is as old as Islam itself, but they have just rediscovered it. This tool is telling Christians that Islam and Christianity have a lot in common. They cite Islam’s belief in the Bible, God, Jesus, Mary, the prophets, the day of judgment and Paradise.

This tactic is not new to Islam. Fourteen centuries ago, Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, used it when he started preaching his new religion in Mecca. At the beginning when Mohammed was weak, he was conciliatory and appeasing to Christians. He told them, “We believe in what has been sent down to us (The Quran), and sent down to you (The Bible). Our God is the same as your God.” Surah 29:46. Later, in Medina, after Mohammed became strong, all this changed. Allah, allegedly, tells him then, “Fight people of the Book (Christians and Jews) who do not accept the religion of the truth (Islam) until they pay tribute by hand, being inferior.” Surah 9:29

The fact is that the differences between Christianity and Islam are very deep, and irreconcilable. The space limitation will enable us to list just a few.

Our God is not their Allah

Our God is a loving Father, who, along with the Son and the Holy Spirit, is One God.

  • To Muslims, the concept of a triune God is a blasphemy.
    They do blaspheme who say God is one of three…, for there is no God except one God.” Surah 5:73 
  • Allah of Islam is changeable.
    “Our revelations we abrogate or cause to be forgotten, we substitute (with) something better or similar. Knowest thou not that God (Allah) hath power over all things.” Surah 2:106 
  • Allah of Islam is temperamental.
    “If we had so willed, we could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance, but the word from me will come true “I will fill Hell with Jinns (demons) and men all together.” Surah 32:13 
  • Allah of Islam is a deceiver.
    “They plot and plan, and God, too plans, but the best of planners (deceivers) is God.” Surah 8:30 
  • Allah of Islam is frightening.
    It is God whom ye should more justly fear, if you believe.” Surah 9:13

 Our Jesus is not their Isa

Our Jesus is the Son of God who died on the Cross to save the whole world. (In the Quran Jesus ‘ name is Isa.)

  • Isa is a created human being.
    “The similitude of Isa before God is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, Then said to him: “Be”: And he was.” Surah 3:59 
  • Isa is just an apostle.
    “O people of the book (Christians) commit no excess in your religion: nor say of God aught but truth, Christ Isa the son of Mary was (No more than) an apostle of God.” Surah 4: 171 
  • Isa was not crucified.
    “That they said (in boast) “we killed Christ Isa, the son of Mary”…but they killed him not, nor crucified him.” Surah 4:157 
  • Isa will return to earth to destroy the Cross.
    ” The hour will not be established until the son of Mary (Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the Cross..” Hadith vol. 3:656

Our Holy Spirit is not their Angel Gabriel

Our Holy Spirit is the third person in the Godhead. His work is to comfort, convict, regenerate, guide, give power and bring forth fruit.

  • The Holy Spirit in Islam is an angel.
    “Then we (Allah) sent to her (Mary) our Angel (our spirit), and he (Angel Gabriel) appeared before her as a man in all respects.” Surah 19:17
    “Say the Holy Spirit (the Angel Gabriel) has brought the revelation (the Quran) from thy Lord in Truth.” Surah 16:102

Our Ethics are not their Sharia

Christian ethics are based on love, forgiveness, equality, tolerance and free-choice.

  • Islam teaches revenge.
    “If any one transgresses the prohibition against you, transgress likewise against him.” Surah 2:194 
  • Islam does not treat women and men as equal.
    “To the male a portion equal to that of two females.” Surah 4:11 
  • Islam allows men to beat their wives.
    “… As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, beat them .” Surah 4:34 
  • Islam imposes harsh punishment on wrongdoers.
    *A thief is punished by the amputation of hands. Surah 5:38
    *A drunk is punished by 80 lashes. Hadith vol. 8:770
    *An adulterer is punished by 100 lashes. Surah 24:2
     
  • Islam must be imposed by force, if necessary.
    “And fight them on, until there is no more tumult (seduction) or oppression, and there prevail justice, and faith in God (and the religion becomes Islam).” Surah 2:193 
  • Apostasy from Islam is punishable by death.
    “Whoever changes his (Islamic) religion, kill him.” Hadith vol. 9:57

Our Salvation is not their straight path

Our Salvation is guaranteed by the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on our behalf, on the Cross.

  • In Islam there is no Original Sin, and no need for the Cross; Allah, the all powerful, has the supreme authority to punish or to forgive whomever He pleaseth, whenever He pleaseth.
    “He (Allah) forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and punisheth whom He pleaseth, for God has power over all things.” Surah 2:284 
  • In Islam good deeds cancel bad deeds.
    “For those things that are good remove those that are evil.” Surah 11:114 
  • The only assurance a Muslim has of going to Paradise is through fighting for the cause of spreading Islam (Jihad), and being martyred in the process.
    “And if you are slain, or die in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all they could amass.” Surah 3:157

Our Heaven is not their Paradise

In Christianity Heaven’s pleasures are pleasures of spirit, pleasures of purity.

  • In Islam Paradise is the place where a Muslim will be reclining, eating meats and delicious fruits, drinking exquisite wines, and engaging in sex with beautiful women (and perpetually young beautiful boys “Wildan or Ghilman”, according to some Muslim theologians).
    “As to the righteous, they will be in gardens and in happiness (to them will be said:) “Eat and drink ye, with profit and health, because of your (good) deeds “They will recline (with ease) on thrones (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and we shall join (marry) them to companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes… And we shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat, anything they desire. They shall there exchange, one another, a cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of ill. Round about them youth (handsome) as pearls well-guarded.” Surah 52:17, 19, 20 & 22-24
