There is a force in this world attempting to take us over and rule over us with an iron hand and that force is Islam! Islam is an evil religion and it is so twisted, those that lead it will die to see its form of rule and law called Shariah Law and Caliphate consume the world. Citizens in France are fighting against Islam because they know the truth behind this evil religion. Sadly many believers are being or have been lured into a state of lukewarmness or ecumenism. Let us take a quick look at what Jesus had to say about being lukewarm believers shall we:
“So then because thou art LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot, I WILL SPUE THEE OUT OF MY MOUTH.” (Revelation 3:16 KJB)
It is bad enough that the secular world thinks Christians and Muslims worship the same God or make some kind of comparison concerning behaviors. Take for instance, the blasphemous remark by homosexual Rosie O’ Donnell when she said on the ABC show The View, “Radical Christianity is just as threatening to America as Radical Islam.”
People in the audience actually cheered after she said that! I actually can’t blame her for saying that, after all who wouldn’t think preachers that talk about hellfire and damnation and sin and blood and…hey, wait a minute…hardly any preachers talk about those things, so I guess there is no comparison anyway…whoopsie!
Moving on now…anyone who thinks that Islam is a peaceful religion is deluded and living in a ecumenical fantasyland. According to the Koran there is no such thing as a Moderate Muslim. Allah commands that ALL Muslims spread their religion by force and abide by Muhammad’s corrupt code. In fact, the Koran condemns any Muslim that tries to be Moderate, so all Muslims HAVE to be sold out to Jihad, no matter what! THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PEACEFUL AND LOVING SIDE TO ISLAM AND NEVER HAS BEEN!! It is a trick of the devil that has gotten people to think this way! The religion of Islam is based on oppression and conversion by the sword and domination over women and worshipping a moon-god. Consider some quotes from the Koran and other writings:
“Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.” Koran 8:39
“Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace.” Ishaq 587
“Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you.” Koran 9:123
“Those present at the oath of Aqabah had sworn an allegiance to Muhammad. It was a pledge of war against all men. Allah had permitted fighting.” Tabari VI:138
“The Prophet said at the conquest of Mecca: ‘There is no migration now, but only Jihad, fighting for the Cause of Islam. When you are asked to set out on a Jihad expedition, you should readily do so.’” Muslim C20B1N4597
Now, consider these loving and “moderate” quotes from the “peaceful” religion of Islam about Christians:
“Verily they are disbelievers and infidels who say, ‘The Messiah, son of Mary, is God.’” Koran 5:17
“The Messiah, Christ, the son of Mary, was NO MORE THAN A MESSENGER.” Koran 5:75
“We [Jews] killed the Messiah, Jesus, but they killed him not, nor crucified him. It appeared so to them (as the resemblance of Jesus was put over another man and they killed that man). Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself. Those who differ with this version are full of doubts. They have no knowledge and follow nothing but conjecture. For surely they killed him not.” Koran 4:157
“O people of the Book (Christians), do not be fanatical in your faith, and say nothing but the truth about Allah. The Messiah who is Isa (Jesus), son of Mariam (Mary), was only a messenger of Allah, nothing more. He bestowed His Word on Mariam and His Spirit. So believe in Allah and say not Trinity for Allah is one Ilah (God)...far be it from His Glory to beget a son.” Koran 4:171
“Not equal are those believers who sit at home and receive no injurious hurt, and those who strive hard, fighting Jihad in Allah's Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a rank higher to those who strive hard, fighting Jihad with their wealth and bodies to those who sit (at home). Unto each has Allah promised good, but He prefers Jihadists who strive hard and fight above those who sit home. He has distinguished his fighters with a huge reward.” Koran 4:95
“BELIEVERS WHO SIT HOME AND THOSE WHO GO OUT FOR JIHAD IN ALLAH'S CAUSE ARE NOT EQUAL.” Muslim: C40B20N4676
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’” Bukhari: V4B52N220
“I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.” Koran 8:12
“So Muhammad began seizing their herds and their property bit by bit. He conquered home by home. The Messenger took some people captive, including Safiyah and her two cousins. The Prophet chose Safiyah for himself.” Tabari VIII:116, Ishaq:511
“The Prophet had their men killed, their children and woman taken captive.” Bukhari: V5B59N512
“Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth.” Koran 33:26
“Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur'an.” Tabari IX:113
“The Prophet said: ‘I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.’ When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, ‘All the favors done for them by their husbands.’” Bukhari: V1B22N28
“Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and all Muslim women to draw cloaks and veils all over their bodies (screening themselves completely except for one or two eyes to see the way). That will be better.” Koran 33:59
“Allah and His Messenger dissolve obligations.” Koran 9:3
“Their punishment is...execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides, or exile from the land.” Koran 5:33
Are ye getting the picture yet folks? Next I will give you some information on Muhammad himself. This guy was seriously messed up! He had a wife named Aesha that was a 9-year-old little girl and actually had sex with her. He had up to 15 wives but in his “teachings” his followers could only have 4. The core of Islam is the worship of an ancient moon-god that was merely one out of 360 other gods worshipped in the Mid East. Muhammad invaded Mecca and removed all but one of the gods worshipped there called Allah.
Allah was a pre-existing god. He was well known to Muhammad's Quraysh tribe. Scholars quickly point out that Allah was one of the names used for the MOON-god who was married to the sun goddess. Together they produced three goddesses who were called the daughters of Allah. Their names were Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat. These were considered high gods, at the top of the plethora of Arabian deities. Muhammad’s father’s literal Arabic name was Abd-Allah. His uncle’s name was Obied-Allah. His family was devoted to the moon-god for at least two generations before Muhammad. The Arabian pagans prayed towards Mecca because that is where their idols/gods were sitting. Since Allah was one of the idols in the Kabah it only made sense to turn toward their god and pray. Praying toward Mecca continues to this day.
Allah is clearly NOT the God of the Bible. He is an Arabian idol that sat in the Kabah with a bunch of other idols. The pagans prayed in the direction of Mecca because that is where their gods (including Allah) resided heaped on top of each other in the Kabah. This is not news to educated Muslims, they generally understand this point. Allah is the moon-god, that's why there is the crescent moon and star on the Muslim flag.
The Koran merely superimposes Allah onto the true, living God of the Bible which openly confuses people, and unless you do the research you will fall into the trap that Allah is the God of the Bible. Some characteristics of Allah are that he is impersonal, not a Spirit (spirit), unknowable, not a Father and provides no Saviour or intercessor for mankind.
When Muhammad kicked the bucket in 632 AD he left no instructions for his followers, so without instruction and guidance, inspired or otherwise, they just made stuff up to continue their corrupt and vile religion. Eventually it splintered into several warring sects such as Shi’ites and Sunnis who to this day not only fight against Christians but themselves as well.
Conveniently, Muslims make wild and exaggerated claims about the Koran and the words of God. For them the Koran is the holy word of God (Allah) but the Bible is or has been corrupted, even though the Koran claims elements found in the Bible. The Muslims claim that the Koran is perfect in Arabic and that it can't be translated. That's pretty dumb--anything can be translated. They also claim that it came directly from heaven with no earthly sources, but in doing a little research it is evident that the Koran did come from earth, more specifically, from Muhammad's pre-Islamic Arabia. The customs and culture found in the Koran fit pre-Islamic Arabia to a “T”.
Consider the following thoughts from various scholars and such:
“…an incoherent rhapsody of fable, and precept, and declamation, which sometimes crawls in the dust, and sometimes is lost in the clouds.” (Salomon Reinach, German Scholar)
“The matter of the Koran is exceedingly incoherent and sententious, the book evidently being without any logical order of thought either as a whole or in its parts. This agrees with the desultory and incidental manner in which it is said to have been delivered.” (Edward Gibbon, Historian)
The Hadith is another “inspired” work for Muslims that contains way, way, way too many tall tales and pagan superstitious nonsense to list here. The following is a rundown of the differences between Muhammad/Islam and Jesus/Biblical Christianity:
Mohammad was the prophet of war; Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7).
Mohammad's disciples killed for their religion; Christ's disciples were killed for their faith (Acts 12:2; 2 Timothy 4:7).
Mohammad promoted persecution against the “infidels”; Christ forgave, delivered and converted the chief persecutor (Paul, as described in 1 Timothy 1:13-15).
Mohammad was the taker of life; Christ was the giver of life (John 10:27-28).
Mohammad and his warriors murdered thousands; Christ murdered none but saved many (compare John 12:48).
Mohammad's method was COMPULSION; Christ's aim was voluntary CONVERSION (Acts 3:19).
Mohammad practiced FORCE; Christ preached FAITH (John 6:29, 35).
Mohammad was a WARRIOR; Christ is The DELIVERER (Rom 11:26, Col. 1:13; 1
Mohammad conquered his enemies with the sword; Jesus conquered his enemies with another kind of sword, the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12; Acts 2:37).
Mohammad said to the masses, “Convert or die” while Christ said, “Believe and live!” (John 6:47; 11:25-26)
Mohammad was swift to shed blood (Romans 3:15-17); Jesus shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Ephesians 1:7).
Mohammad preached “Death to the infidels!” while Jesus prayed “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34)
Mohammad declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels; Christ achieved a holy victory on Calvary's cross (Colossians 2:14-15) and his followers share in that victory (John 16:33).
Mohammad constrained people by conquest; Christ constrained people by love (2 Corinthians 5:14).
Modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Mohammad and carry out their despicable atrocities in the name of his god; Christians derive their inspiration from Jesus who said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” (Matthew 5:9)
Modern day disciples of Mohammad 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 (like the Catholic Church who started the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).
Mohammad hated music; Jesus and his disciples sang hymns, and the Apostle Paul encouraged believers to sing. (Matthew 26:30, Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16)
Mohammad allowed that a Mullah, Imam, or Mufti of Islam can be a terrorist and an amoral animal like Osama bin Laden; The Bible requires that a leader in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ must be above reproach, and when this is not true, Christians demand such a fallen leader be removed from leadership. (1Timothy 3:1-7, 5:19-20)
Islam calls on its followers to observe Five Pillars, while all other aspects of life can be vulgar and not affect the Muslim's prospects in Paradise. The Bible calls on the Christian to submit to the total change of his life by the Spirit of God. (Romans 12:1-2)
The Muslim looks forward to eternity in Paradise where there will be virgins who are used for eternal perpetual copulation.
The Bible believing Christian looks forward to being with Jesus Christ in heaven forever. (2 Corinthians 5:8)
Mohammad said the witness of a woman was half the value of the witness of a man.
Muhammad said a woman goes to Paradise because she satisfies her husband sexually; The Bible teaches that a husband is to love his wife. (Ephesians 5:25)
Mohammad 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 hence.” (John 18:36)
Mohammad ordered death to the Jews (see A. Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad, Oxford University Press , p. 369); Christ ordered that the gospel be preached “to the Jew first.” (Romans 1:16)
The Koran says, “Fight in the cause of Allah” (Qu'ran 2.244); The Bible says, “we wrestle not against flesh and blood” and “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.” (Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:4)
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)
The Koran says, “I will inspire terror into the hearts of unbelievers” (Qu'ran 8.12); God inspires a healthy, reverent fear in the hearts of believers. (Isaiah 8:13)
The Koran (Quran) is a terrorist manual which condones fighting, conflict, terror, slaughter, and genocide against those who do not accept Islam; The Bible is a missionary manual to spread the gospel of peace to all the world. (Romans 10:15)
Mohammad's mission was to conquer the world for Allah; Christ's mission was to conquer sin's power and penalty by his blood atonement. (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18)
Mohammad considered Christ a good prophet; Christ pronounced Mohammed to be a false prophet. (Matthew 24:11; John 10:10)
Mohammad 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)
Islam is geocentric, that is, the whole universe is centered on the Kabah in the Grand Mosque in Mecca in Arabia, and all Muslims pray facing that direction; Jesus Christ is the center of all born again Christian worship and fellowship, for he is “in the midst” where his saints meet anywhere on earth. (Matthew 18:20, John 4:22-23)
Mohammad's Tomb: OCCUPIED! Christ's tomb: EMPTY!
What religion today practices the pagan rites of the moon-god? Islam! This explains why the crescent moon and a star is the symbol of Islam. It is placed on top of mosques and minarets and displayed on hats, flags, rugs, amulets and even jewelry. Every time you see the Muslim symbol of a crescent moon and star, you are seeing the ancient symbol of the moon-god. Islam's origins have been traced back by scholars to the ancient fertility religion of the worship of the moon-god which was always the dominant religion of Arabia. The moon-god was worshipped by praying toward Mecca several times a day, making an annual pilgrimage to the Kabah which was a temple of the moon-god, running around the Kabah seven times and (get this one) throw stones at the devil. However their idea of throwing stones at the devil is very bizarre. EVERY Muslim at one point in their life must take part in the Hajj where they throw pebbles or rocks at the devil which is actually 3 walls of varying sizes used to represent the devil. Wooow!
I think we are all too familiar with the way Muslims act or react when their precious “peace-loving” religion is exposed or when Muhammad their Prophet is exposed by those who know the truth about Islam. “Death to America” or “Death to Israel” or any other various chants ring out through the Muslim world. But yet when they blaspheme Jesus, we believers forgive them and pray for their eventual salvation. They torture and butcher us in their streets while we believers love them in return.
The plan of Satan with Islam is that he created a horrible religion BUT to further confuse everyone, he set up a “peaceful” side to it and even though the truth of Islam is out there, many people have fallen for the LIE that there is a “Moderate” side. And whether you witness to them in their own backyard or here in America…preachers are being persecuted for it. Check out this report about a preacher in Wichita, KS who got busted for witnessing to Muslims:
“A pastor in Wichita, Kansas, heads to court today to defend himself against charges involving his efforts to witness for Christ outside a mosque. Pastor Mark Holick says the incident in late August occurred as members of the Islamic Society of Wichita were marking the holy month of Ramadan. Police were called when Islamists witnessed Holick and 13 others handing out packets that included the Gospel of John, the Book of Romans in English and Arabic, and a DVD with testimonies of former Muslims who have converted to Christianity. Holick claims he was basically ignored by the arresting officer. ‘I asked him, what am I being charged with?’ He wouldn't answer me,’ the pastor tells OneNewsNow. ‘And I asked him a second time and I asked him a third time…and neither time would he even respond to me.’
“The Kansas pastor, who was ultimately charged with loitering and failure to disburse, is no stranger to controversy. In 2009 he won a $10,000 judgment after the City of Wichita admitted it had violated his civil rights when he was arrested for witnessing on a public city sidewalk during a homosexual event at a nearby park.
“‘It's really good for Christians to see what has really happened to our court system,’ he shares, ‘because if you haven't gone through it before, you really have no idea what it has become. But I think it's going to be good at trial, regardless of the verdict.’
“Holick, pastor at Spirit One Christian Center, will defend himself today before the Sedgwick County Municipal Court.”
Sadly, one of our latest presidents (George W. Bush) told ABC News that Muslims and Christians worship the same god (God):
“We have different routes of getting to the Almighty,” Bush said. ‘But I want you to understand, I want your listeners to understand, I don't get to get decide who goes to heaven. The Almighty God decides who goes to heaven and I am on my personal walk,’ he said.”
HUH??? He is blind to the truth! And what is this “personal walk” garbage? Either you know Jesus as your personal Saviour by faith alone OR you don’t…period!!!!! “Allah” is derived from a compound Arabic word, AL + ILAH = Allah. “ILAH” in Arabic is “God” and “AL” in Arabic is a definite article like our word “the.” So from an English equivalent, “Allah” comes from “The + God.” (Islam: Muhammad and His Religion, Arthur Jeffery, 1958, p 85). It is abundantly clear that Muhammad DIDN'T introduce Allah to the world. Consider other sources:
“But history establishes beyond the shadow of doubt that even the pagan Arabs, before Muhammad’s time, knew their chief god by the name of Allah and even, in a sense, proclaimed his unity...Among the pagan Arabs this term denoted the chief god of their pantheon, the Kaaba, with its three hundred and sixty idols.” (The Moslem Doctrine of God, Samuel M. Zwemer 1905, p 24-25)
“Historians like Vaqqidi have said Allah was actually the chief of the 360 gods being worshipped in Arabia at the time Muhammad rose to prominence. Ibn Al-Kalbi gave 27 names of pre-Islamic deities...Interestingly, not many Muslims want to accept that Allah was already being worshipped at the Ka’ba in Mecca by Arab pagans before Muhammad came. Some Muslims become angry when they are confronted with this fact. But history is not on their side. Pre-Islamic literature has proved this.” (Who Is This Allah?, G. J. O. Moshay, 1994, p 138)
The following is a quote from Dr. Robert Morey’s book “The Islamic Invasion” by Harvard House Publishers, 1992, pg. 211-218: (long quote)
“The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of “Allah.” The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles. The issue is thus one of continuity. Was “Allah” the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre Islamic times? The Muslim's claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if ‘Allah’ is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion. Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archaeology. We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah. As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.
“Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most widespread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. As demonstrated by Sjoberg and Hall, the ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen and Asimbabbar. His symbol was the crescent moon. Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this Moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria. The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out, ‘Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites.’
“In ancient Syria and Canna, the Moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. At times the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon. The sun-goddess was the wife of Sin and the stars were their daughters. For example, Istar was a daughter of Sin. Sacrifices to the Moon-god are described in the Pas Shamra texts. In the Ugaritic texts, the Moon-god was sometimes called Kusuh. In Persia, as well as in Egypt, the Moon-god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. He was the Judge of men and gods. The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the Moon-god (see: Deut. 4:19;17:3; II Kings. 21:3,5; 23:5; Jer. 8:2; 19:13; Zeph. 1:5, etc.) When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the Moon-god. As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, steles, pottery, amulets, clay tablets, cylinders, weights, earrings, necklaces, wall murals, etc. In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead. An idol with the body of a bull and the head of man has a crescent moon inlaid on its forehead with shells. In Ur, the Stela of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the Moon-god was the head of the gods. Even bread was baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the Moon-god. The Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the Moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period.
“A temple of the Moon-god has been excavated in Ur by Sir Leonard Woolley. He dug up many examples of moon worship in Ur and these are displayed in the British Museum to this day. Harran was likewise noted for its devotion to the Moon-god. In the 1950’s a major temple to the Moon-god was excavated at Hazer in Palestine. Two idols of the Moon-god were found. Each was a stature of a man sitting upon a throne with a crescent moon carved on his chest. The accompanying inscriptions make it clear that these were idols of the Moon-god. Several smaller statues were also found which were identified by their inscriptions as the ‘daughters’ of the Moon-god. What about Arabia? As pointed out by Prof. Coon, ‘Muslims are notoriously loath to preserve traditions of earlier paganism and like to garble what pre-Islamic history they permit to survive in anachronistic terms.’
“During the nineteenth century, Amaud, Halevy and Glaser went to Southern Arabia and dug up thousands of Sabean, Minaean, and Qatabanian inscriptions which were subsequently translated. In the 1940's, the archaeologists G. Caton Thompson and Carleton S. Coon made some amazing discoveries in Arabia. During the 1950's, Wendell Phillips, W.F. Albright, Richard Bower and others excavated sites at Qataban, Timna, and Marib (the ancient capital of Sheba). Thousands of inscriptions from walls and rocks in Northern Arabia have also been collected. Reliefs and votive bowls used in worship of the ‘daughters of Allah’ have also been discovered. The three daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat are sometimes depicted together with Allah the Moon-god represented by a crescent moon above them. The archaeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god.
“In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, ‘South Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations.’ Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god's name ‘Sin’ is a part of such Arabic words as ‘Sinai,’ the ‘wilderness of Sin,’ etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god. This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists.
“The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrates that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al-ilah, i.e. ‘the deity,’ meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out, ‘The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.’ The Moon-god was called al-ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names. The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad's day. Prof. Coon goes on to say, ‘Similarly, under Mohammed's tutelage, the relatively anonymous Ilah, became Al-Ilah, The God, or Allah, the Supreme Being.’
“This fact answers the questions, ‘Why is Allah never defined in the Qur'an? Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was?’ Muhammad was raised in the religion of the Moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs. While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon-god, was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god. In effect he said, ‘Look, you already believe that the Moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is to accept the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods.’ This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not, ‘Allah is great’ but ‘Allah is the greatest,’ i.e., he is the greatest among the gods. Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the ‘greatest’ except in a polytheistic context? The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser. That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped. This ‘Allah’ was the Moon-god according to the archaeological evidence. Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways. To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians, he said that Allah was their God too. But both the Jews and the Christians knew better and that is why they rejected his god Allah as a false god.
“Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughters al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat. Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating, ‘Islam proved itself to be...a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry.’ Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded ‘There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews.’ The Arabs worshipped the Moon-god as a supreme deity. But this was not biblical monotheism. While the Moon-god was greater than all other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities. Now that we have the actual idols of the Moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times. Is it any wonder then that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon? That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? That a crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations or that the Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?”
Sorry, like I said, that was a long quote but needed to get the full context of what we are dealing with here. I hope this article has helped you to understand the truth about this vile evil religion and to NOT be afraid to expose it as just that! Be NOT afraid of these people my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, please do not fear them, “For God hath NOT given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7 KJB)
Any true born again Christians that are in the Mid East and have been martyred there have gone on to be in the best place in the universe…heaven and face to face with Jesus!!! I could not think of any better place to be than that…how about you? Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 10:28:
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
And then also lastly remember what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:8, “We are confident, I say, and willing RATHER TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY, AND TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD.”
Muslims ARE the mission field believers and we should make an effort to witness to them whenever and however we can!

Thank you for this well researched and written article! Our enemy is working overtime to keep the lost's eyes blinded to the Gospel Truth. Satan especially uses false religion to lull people into self righteous complacency. I appreciate for your passion for Truth.
