*This is the third installment in a series
In Islam, Mohammed is known as the messenger, or prophet of Allah. He is highly revered amongst Muslims, an idea which he himself promoted throughout his life. Any questioning of, or perceived insult to Mohammed, Allah or Islam can be considered slander and/or blasphemy. Blasphemy is the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk. It would appear that Mohammed then is considered in the deity status, though Mohammed himself and Muslims claim he isn’t. Slander is making false and damaging statements about someone. In Islam, telling the truth about Islam is damaging and thus slanderous. As you might’ve guessed, blasphemy/slander carries a death sentence. Within Muslim-dominated areas, all it takes is an accusation to incite a murderous mob to action. Even a rumor will do. No trial, no proof needed. If you’re a non-Muslim, you’re always fair game.
According to the Quran, Allah is described many ways. Amongst the “99 beautiful names of Allah” are “the best schemer”, “the greatest of all deceivers”, “the destroyer”, “the most proud”, “the bringer of death”, and “the creator of evil”. In the Bible, such titles are descriptions of Satan. Again, Islam reveals itself for what it is.
The neurological disease, Kuru, began spreading inside Syria in 2013. Kuru is transmitted through human cannibalism and once contracted, is 100% fatal. The “religion of tolerance” allows for the killing and eating of apostates, enemy fighters and adulterers. Cooking is allowed, but if you’re really demonic, raw will do. The ongoing Syrian Civil War is oftentimes Muslim vs Muslim. Plenty of dining opportunities in such a conflict. But doesn’t Islam forbids the killing of one Muslim by another? This prohibition can easily be circumvented by claiming any Muslim who doesn’t agree or align with the declaring Muslim’s conception of Islam isn’t a true Muslim. Such chicanery is worthy of Mohammed himself.
Muslim eschatology has a savior, known as the Mahdi, who will return from centuries of being in hiding to cleanse the world of apostasy, as in kill all the Christians, Jews and other assorted non-Muslims.
“The hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. The Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will say: ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allah! There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’ (All the trees will say this except for the Gharqad (box-thorn), for it is one of the trees of the Jews.’” (Reported by Imam Ahmad; it is a Sahih Hadith).
This Mahdi, also known as the 12thImam, is of the lineage of Mohammed according to Sunni theory, who disappeared as a five-year old boy according to the Shiites. It’s believed that the return of the Mahdi can be hastened by creating a time of chaos and bloodshed. This thought is especially prevalent within the leadership of Iran, the seat of Shiite Islamic theory and power. With this in mind, you can see why Iran so covets the development of nuclear weapons. What better way to herald the return of the 12thImam than initiating a nuclear war with Israel, Saudi Arabia (their Muslim arch enemy), or even the US?
As Islam gains converts around the world from different nations and races, a glaring irony is overlooked by those so taken in; Islam is an Arab supremacist theory. The highest schools of Islamic scholarship conclude that if you can’t pray to Allah in perfect Arabic, he won’t hear your prayers. No prayers, no going to the Muslim paradise known as the Garden. Hell is the abode of the not-up-to standards Muslim as it is with the infidel. Many Arab Muslims look down upon non-Arabic Muslims with disdain and loathing. Oh, they’re happy to get you converted to Islam all right. It’s just that you’re inferior. A tool. Arabic Muslims also brag on the Quran’s Arab purity. There are over 270 non-Arabic words found in the Quran.
While Muslim women can only marry Muslim men, Muslim men can marry non-Muslim women. This does happen. I hope you’ve read my prior two primers on Islam to glean how women are viewed in the Muslim world. If your own personal safety, sanity and soul aren’t enough to keep you from considering a romantic relationship with a Muslim man, understand this. All children born to a Muslim father are exclusively his. They are his property to be raised Muslim. End of discussion.
With Islam there is no democracy, no freedom of any kind, and no individual human rights. These ideas cannot exist in the totalitarian system known as Islam. Such concepts are diametrically opposed to, and eradicated by, the imposition of Sharia Law. During the entire 1400 year history of Islam, the only forms of government that have been put into place are secular Muslim dictatorships and theological Muslim dictatorships There are 57 declared Muslim countries in the world today. Not one Republic amongst them.
As Will Rogers once stated, “There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.” There are Muslims right now plotting to bring that electric fence moment to the undiscerning. In the 1930s, a lone voice in England warned of the dangers of a rising threat in Germany known as National Socialism, more commonly known today as Nazism. That discerning man was Winston Churchill, who later became Prime Minister of England during WWII. Prior to being proven right, Churchill was laughed at and scorned for his views. Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of England at the time, chose to appease Hitler rather than confront his increasingly aggressive actions. There are unmistakable parallels between then and the Nazis and now with the Muslims. Speaking of Muslims,the forward-thinking Mr. Churchill had insight into Islam as well.
“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism (Islam) is a militant and proselytizing faith.” (Winston Churchill writing in 1899)
A couple of decades of reflection didn’t alter his views:
“They (Muslims) hold it as an article of duty, as well as of faith, to kill all who do not share their opinions and to make slaves of their wives and children … Austere, intolerant, well-armed, and bloodthirsty.” (Winston Churchill 1921 Cairo Conference)
On the matter of individual compulsory worship, Satan directly would if he could but he can’t; God won’t allow it. On the other hand, God can but He won’t. He lets each individual have the freedom to make their own choice. Why? Because forced worship isn’t love. God wants your love freely given, as His is. Satan doesn’t care about love, only power. In this contrast, we see the great divide in methodology between Islam and Christianity, between Satan and God. You may be familiar with the Muslim claim that there is no compulsion of religion in Islam.
“There is no compulsion in religion: truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan (devil) and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.” (Surah 2:256)
This verse comes from the Mecca or peaceful period of Mohammed’s life. It was abrogated (nullified) by later verses. It’s still there for Muslims to lie to you about (taqiyya). It holds no meaning to them other than to fool you with.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest and most influential Muslim advocacy group in the United States. Muslim advocacy means Sharia supremacist. Never lose sight of Islam’s goals. The credo of the Muslim Brotherhood, a wholly evil terrorist organization headquartered in Egypt, is, “Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and dying in the way of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.” The truth of Islam can’t be stated any better.
Then I hear about the nice Muslims out there. Let me tell you about that. A good friend of mine supports a ministry in Nigeria. There was a village there where Christians and Muslims had lived peaceably together for years. One morning a group of outsider Muslims attacked the village. The fleeing Christians were herded toward the center of town to an area strategically blocked off and trapped. The Muslims hacked them to death with machetes, every last man, woman and child. Are you wondering where their Muslim friends were? They’d fled the night before. They knew what was coming but didn’t bother to tell their Christian neighbors. This is Islam.
To claim a Muslim faith is to associate oneself with the diabolical ideology of it. Whether or not such a person is actively waging jihad is irrelevant. They claim affiliation with a totalitarian system of governance that condones child rape, torture, gang rapes of women, slavery, and gruesome mass murders. These atrocities are absolutely foundational to the spread of Islam and cannot factually be separated from it. No decent person, no peaceful person associates with Islam. Period. There are no legitimate excuses. You claim the faith, you own the legacy. How would an adherent Muslim view such a person?
“What is popular among these Muslims is only the worship part of Islam. These Muslims carefully read the Quran daily, and many of them cry in their prayers, but they do not go out and carry on the mission of Islam through jihad. These are hypocrite infidels. They are the shame of Islam.” –Dr. Saleh Serea, leader; the Islamic Liberation Movement
My assessment of Islam has been necessarily frank. As such, its harsh truths have been presented in a forthright manner. I wish there were easier ways to get certain points across. I haven’t said things for shock value, but what I’ve said is shocking to those who are unfamiliar with what Islam is and stands for. By now, if you’ve been following along, you are no longer blissfully unaware. So what’s next? Where do we go from here?
Every soul who doesn’t accept the blood of Christ as atonement for their sins is lost. This encompasses far more than just the disciples of Mohammed, any unsaved person is lost. Many Muslims are born into families and societies that are Islamic. They’re raised in this ideology and don’t know anything else of meaning; blinded to the truth of Jesus Christ. In Islam, there is no personal relationship with Allah. As characterized, he is a warlord and taskmaster. Islam is a belief system not of love, but of hate, violence, oppression and power. Its rewards are sensual, not eternal, carnal, not spiritual. Yet, Muslims are devoted to their faith. They pray five times a day and willingly, zealously die in the hopes of pleasing the false god Allah. This is indescribably tragic. These are individuals whom God loves, people who don’t know what true love is. They live lives of rage, wickedness and brutality. Slaves to sin and the consequences thereof.
I’ve experienced that Arab hospitality is unmatched, as is Muslim ferocity. Not all Arabs are Muslims and not all Muslims are Arabs. Some of the most powerful Christian testimonies I’ve witnessed have come from those who were formerly and violently Muslim. For some, reading a Bible was the life-changer. For others, it was the kindness and compassion of Christians, which showed them the better, true way. As testament to God’s sovereignty stands the declarations of conflicted Muslims who cried out to Him in desperation and He answered their heartfelt pleas.
All lost souls have an emptiness inside. Some rage against it, attempting to fill it with all manner of worldly things. What they seek is God’s love and forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. Know than in our fallen world, some can be reached, others can’t. Not because God doesn’t desire it, but because He gives all the free will to say “no”. Please understand that some people are dead set on destruction. Our best intentions will not avail because they delight in evil and the “pleasure for a season” that it provides. For the unrepentant Muslim, Islam offers the vehicle to Earthly power, authority and debauchery. Yet the Great Commission still stands as a command to all Christians.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
Don’t be discouraged by people not responding as you’d like. As John Quincy Adams stated:
“Duty is ours; results are God’s.”
You and I need the discernment to know the right words and actions to reach out to Muslims, or any lost soul, with the good news of the Gospel. Bible-reading and prayer are prerequisites to wisdom and discernment. There are indeed Muslims converting to Christianity. They risk much in doing so, including honor killing at the hands of their own relatives. This is still a small cost in comparison to losing their soul into hell but at the very minimum, still a great burden of familial separation and disownment.
Islam is nocturnal in that it flourishes in the darkness of ignorance. Apathy towards Islam, towards all evil, is a derivative of ignorance. Maybe you and certainly people you know have been lied to about Islam. This last primer, and “A Primer on Islam Part One” and “A Primer on Islam Part Two” were written to shine light in the above-mentioned darkness. There are too many people that buy into the lie of Islam being a peaceful religion. All one needs to do to make a correct determination is answer a few questions. Who was Mohammed, what did he teach through the Quran and hadiths? Was his life and actions consistent with his teachings? What is the history of Islam? What are the goals and methods of Islam?
These primers on Islam answers those questions. Please share.
