“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:1-3).
These verses are an appropriate start to any discussion about Islam. Here’s another.
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).
Islam epitomizes this spirit of antichrist, forthrightly denying that Jesus is the Son of God who died on the cross to save mankind through the power of His atoning blood, was resurrected on the third day and will return again as King of kings and Lord of lords. Of interest, Muslims do believe that Jesus (known as Isa in Arabic), will return again. Only, Isa will return to tell the world that he was a Muslim and prophet of Allah. This would be quite a declaration, considering Jesus lived, died and was resurrected six-hundred-years before Islam was invented. Then Isa will lead Muslim armies in the slaughter of all Christians and Jews.
So much for the abominable notion: That Jews, Christians and Muslims worship the same god. The God of the Tanakh, the Jewish Holy Book, which contains what Christians know as the Old Testament, and the Christian God of the Bible (the only true God). The god of the Quran is Satan, using the alias, Allah.
Shall we proceed?
To refer to Islam as a false religion is only minimally accurate as Islam is much more. It is a brutal, totalitarian system of governance, controlling every aspect of a person’s life; how you think, how you speak, how you act and interact. Even how you dress. It is not a religion anymore than Nazism or Communism is a religion. Islam is seditious toward every form of non-Islamic government. Read that again. It seeks to overthrow all governments and replace them with Sharia (Islamic) Law by any means necessary.
Those who seek common ground with Muslims foolishly engage in their own demise. There is no peaceful co-existence with Islam unless you count the peace of the grave for those who resist. It is treason against our Constitutional Republic to allow this insurgency of Islam into our nation.
Have you ever wondered what a wholly Satan-concocted government/religious system would look like? You don’t have to wonder; Islam has been that curse to humanity for just over 1400 years now. Muslims claim that the Bible is corrupted and that Allah sent his last prophet—Muhammad, to bring his true word to humanity. It’s stated that Muhammad was chosen because he was a virtuous, perfect man. Some of his “virtues” include mass murder, rape, pedophilia, thievery, robbery, torture, slavery, blasphemy and habitual lying. In short, he was a self-serving, demented, perverted, psychopath who exemplifies the Muslim ideal.
Let’s test the Islamic theory that the Bible is corrupted. Is God all-powerful, omniscient and omnipresent? I think all who believe in God would say, “Yes.” Can the will of all-powerful God (then be thwarted by Satan, man or a combination of the two)? The answer would by necessity be, “No.” (As we’ve acknowledged God’s infinite power and knowledge.)
Mankind was created on earth in the neighborhood of six-thousand-years ago. Archeological finds prove that the modern Bible is in alignment with discovered ancient biblical texts, therefore the alleged corruption that Muslims claim had to have taken place some time before the earliest artifacts, even at the beginning. So God’s Word was corrupted by Satan and then allowed this corruption to go unchallenged for several millennia, up until fourteen hundred years ago?
Does that make sense to anyone? Satan got the jump on God and it took him thousands of years to set things right? When you read the Bible and the Quran, it’s easy to discern which is the inspired Word of God and which is the corrupted utterings of a lunatic. By the way, the word “lunatic” is derived from the Latin word “lunaticus” meaning, “a madness caused by the moon.” Keep this in mind as you read.
There are two Muslim holy books: The Quran and the Hadith. The Quran is supposedly comprised of the revelations of Allah to Muhammad while the Hadith is a collection of Muhammad’s sayings. Neither was penned by Muhammad as he was illiterate.
The two main sects in Islam are Sunni and Shiite. The difference? Sunnis believe that Mohammed was the last prophet of Allah. Shiites believe that Mohammed’s cousin, Ali, who was also his son-in-law, was the chosen successor to Mohammed. It may seem to be a minor difference of opinion, but it’s sufficient for unending bloodshed between Sunnis and Shiites. As briefly alluded to, inbreeding is common and accepted in Muslim culture.
I purchased a copy of the Quran while living in the Middle East expecting a slick, well-written tome of sly cunning. Without exaggeration, the Quran is the most rambling, incoherent, twisted and poorly written collection of contradictions that I’ve ever read. Ridiculous levity aside (Mohammed claimed that drinking his blood or urine or eating his excrement would keep a person from going to hell), evil pervades the entire book.
To understand Islam, one must understand from whence it came. Before Islam, the dominant theology amongst Arabs was paganism. Of the 360 different pagan gods worshipped, one was named Allah, the moon god. The distinction needs to be made; Allah is not a name of God or even another name for God, it is the pagan-originated name of the false god of Islam.
To this day, the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon and a star. Not coincidentally and in point of fact very revealing, Satan is referred to in the Bible as the son of the morning star. It makes perfect sense: The moon, Satan’s false god, and the star, Satan himself. This is Islam.
Mohammed was born in Arabia in the town of Medina in 570 AD. He was known to be mentally unstable and went to a cave on occasion for reflection and solitude. At age 40 during one of these sojourns, Mohammed claims to have been approached by Satan, then by Jibril, the Arabic name for the biblical angel Gabriel. Whether he actually was approached by Satan can be debated. What’s undeniable is that Satan, one way or the other, found in Mohammed the potent mixture of evil, charisma and crazy.
From Jibril, Mohammed claimed to receive revelations from Allah, the pagan god he revered above all the others. In short, when Mohammed wanted something, he got a revelation confirming it. When caught in a lie, voila, another revelation clearing things up! “Allah says so” became the justification of every kind of ruthless self-indulgence that Mohammed could imagine.
At first, Mohammed had few followers. During this time his teachings were conciliatory toward Christians and Jews as he lacked the numbers to challenge them openly. Then he had another revelation: Allah said it was okay to attack caravans and villages, that Muslims could take the livestock, gold and silver as plunder. The captured children could be kept as slaves, the women as concubines and the men slaughtered. With this new directive serving as a powerful recruiting tool, the number of Muslims quickly grew into the thousands.
Mohammed became a warlord, his later “revelations” reflecting his growing military power. This is the Mohammed who married a six year-old Aisha, consummating the marriage when she was nine and he in his early fifties. The Mohammed that beheaded 900 captured and bound Jews from the village of Banu Qurayza, their blood filling trenches that he had dug for this slaughter. Water had to be added as the blood coagulated too quickly to achieve the desired visual effect.
Muslims emulate Mohammed. They prefer beheading their enemies because it was his favorite method of execution. Pedophilia is justified because Mohammed was a pedophile. On and on it goes. Mohammed died in 632 AD after being poisoned by one of his wives. His legacy continues to be written in human blood.
It’s imperative that you understand what I’m about to say. The Muslim understanding of the Quran operates on the theory of abrogation. That is, when an earlier verse is contradicted by a later verse, the earlier verse is abrogated, or nullified by the later verse. Mohammed’s later violent verses demanding Muslims war against non-believers cancels 124 earlier verses that advocated peace and friendship with Christians and Jews.
Satan depends on a person’s ignorance of the Bible to mislead and destroy them. Likewise he depends on our ignorance of the Quran so that we don’t see Islam for the threat that it is. In Islam there are two houses: Dar-Al Islam, the house of peace for believers, and Dar-Al Harb, the house of war for all the rest of us. You are an infidel, a kuffar (which is a highly derogatory word in Arabic for a non-believe). As such, you are sub-human and have no rights.
“And wage war for the sake of Allah, and know that Allah is hearing, knowing” (Surah 2:24).
You’ve been fed the lie from presidents, politicians and even some preachers that “peaceful” Islam has been hijacked by a “few radicals and extremists.” Now read the truth. Muslims are commanded in the Quran to wage jihad against non-Muslims without mercy:
“So when the forbidden months are passed [a pre-Islamic tradition of not fighting during a four month period, no longer observed], so kill the polytheists [Christians] wherever you find them, and take them [as captives], and besiege them, and lay in wait for them with every kind of ambush, so if they repent [convert to Islam)] and perform the prayer [the Shahadah] and give the legal alms, so leave their way free. Surely Allah is forgiving, merciful” (Surah 9:5).
The Shahadah is the first of the five pillars of Islam. It is a declaration of faith that must be repeated three times by a convert. “I declare that there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger.” The Shahadah is a direct denial of Jesus as the Son of God as well a denial of the God of the Bible.
“O you who have believed [Muslims], engage in war against the infidels who are near to you, and let them find in you harshness, and know Allah is with the fearer” (Surah 9:123).
There you have it, infidel. Convert, or be subjugated as a slave (also known as Dhimmitude) or be killed. That’s it. There are no other choices. Many times a jihadist (one who engages in holy war) skips options one and two, going directly to option three. You need also know that the Quran says that any Muslim who doesn’t wage jihad will go to hell.
“O you who have believed, when you meet those who became infidels marching, do not turn your backs on them. Whoever will turn his back to them on that day, unless he turns strategically to engage in war or to rally some other troop, so indeed will return with wrath from Allah. And hell will be his abode, and wretched will be his final destination” (Surah 8:15-16).
You may have Muslim neighbors who are nice, decent people. I too have had friends who are Muslim. These would be considered secular Muslims just as there are secular Christians; those who claim a faith but don’t commit wholly to the tenets of that faith. What does the Quran say about such?
“O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Nasara (Christians) as friends. They are friends to one another. And whoever among you takes them as friends, so surely he is of them. Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people” (Surah 5:51).
Thus, as renowned Muslim expert, Robert Spencer states:
There are peaceful Muslims but there is no peaceful Islam. The strength of Islam is that they clearly understand who their enemy is. It’s all non-Muslims, every last one of us. This plays well into our greatest weakness. Despite unending attacks and atrocities committed against us all over the world, we still don’t realize who our declared enemy is.
