For lack of information, there is often much confusion and misunderstanding concerning Islam – even among well-meaning people. The following is my brief summary describing some of its history, its functions and ambitions, and how it is in stark contrast with the God of the Bible.
Followers of satanic Islam are called Muslims. Islam is not simply a religion, but rather, is a life system comprised of many facets including military, political, financial, legal, government, family, social, education, religion, and more. All who do not embrace Islam are called infidels, and according to their rule book, the Qur’an, infidels must either convert to Islam, or be killed. Islam requires submission to their system and to their pagan moon god Allah. The ultimate goal of Islam is world domination...and they are making significant strides toward that end.
A few will press toward dominance with force using guns, bombs, and violence. Others will blend-in and dominate by being good neighbors, good soccer moms, and good employees. Still others will, among other things, enter local and national politics, our education systems, our legal systems, our financial systems, and our communication systems. Muslim men can only live with one wife, but can have three others - each one producing four or more Muslim children to gain population superiority. No matter how militant or peaceful they might present themselves, they all have the same common goal of infiltration and control for world domination. The Qur'an also states that it's perfectly acceptable to lie to infidels to further the cause of Allah by deception.
As they gain strength in numbers, their demands for visibility and tolerance increase exponentially, and from a hundred different directions. Of course, mosques are always built as symbols of victory and control/dominance over an area. Thousands of mosques are now common-place in much of the USA. Muslims are rapidly infiltrating and populating the USA to control it using Islam's Sharia law. The majority of Americans are either too blinded and don't have a clue, or they don't care. Sadly, there are many "Christians" who somehow believe that the pagan god of Islam and the God of the Bible are one and the same. Nothing could be more ridiculous...or dangerous!
Islam is a 1400-year-old lie from hell, dreamed up by Mohammed after being visited by angels of Satan in his sleep. "Allah" is an imaginary god, and is NOT the God of the Bible. The satanic god Allah was chosen by Mohammed as the one true god they should worship from the 360 pagan gods worshiped in his day. The Qur'an clearly reveals the impossibility of Allah being Jehovah God by declaring that Allah had no son...by eliminating the Trinity of Christianity...therefore, denying the Son-ship of Christ, who is God manifest in human flesh. Islam teaches that Jesus was only a prophet, and that all prophets are human and never part of divinity.
Muslims do not believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent to free the world from the bondage and the penalty of sin. They do not believe that salvation is a free gift to all who believe. Instead of revering the words of Jesus, they hold to the words of Muhammad, whom was never prophesied about or spoken of in the Bible. Another difference between Christianity and Islam is that you are born into Islam, or threatened with death to become a Muslim. However, you become a Christian by making the free-will choice to accept Jesus Christ by faith alone.
Their salvation is dependent on man, and because of that, the Qur'an is highly memorized and revered as it is the means by which a person learns what their god requires. According to them, Allah lends his guidance and offers salvation only to those who deserve it. This is why so many Muslims are willing to prove their devotion and loyalty even unto death, because that will assure their salvation.
The Word of God, the Bible, offers no hope of salvation to anyone that does not make his or her own personal choice to receive Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NKJV). Muslims do not believe in this statement by Jesus, nor do they believe in the God of the Old and New Testaments. Therefore, it is quite clear that the Islamic faith does not pay homage to the God of Christianity.
“Holy War” or “Jihad” is a fundamental concept in the Islamic religion. The Islamic world's hatred for the Jews and the nation of Israel is satanic at its core. No amount of negotiating for peace ever will change the fact that they want the Jewish state of Israel forever done away from what they consider to be Islamic land. Peace will come only when Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, returns to judge all unbelief, and to rule and reign forever.
Due to the tolerant and politically correct mindset of the USA, we will continue to cave-in to their relentless demands. I am reminded of the frog being boiled to death in slowly heated water. That frog will be dead without ever realizing what has happened. So it is with their strategy for the advancement of Islam.
Thank you for your article from one thoughtful perspective. Where our inner city church is planted, the Lord has brought the mission field to our doorstep. We're blessed to have a minister (after years as a missionary in Africa) who regularly meets with members from the Muslim community (and obviously has Jesus' heart of compassion for them). He writes in his latest newsletter (in reference to the complex issue you raise): "Let us witness instead that God reconciles us to Himself in Jesus the Messiah, and invite Muslims to know God as Jesus reveals Him to us." (John 10:16)
Don, I learned more from this article about Islam than any other article I've read. You describe perfectly the fallacies and false claims of Islam, and the error in believing they are peace-loving people. They will not co-exist with any other group; indeed, they must be dominant or they will destroy. Thank you for this very thorough, well constructed article!!
