A Primer on Islam: Epilogue (updated) :: By Patrick Wyett

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 evi.” 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, it 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 forbid 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 12th Imam, 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 12th Imam 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 1,400 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 stand 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 that, 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 deadset 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? Were 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 answer those questions. Please share.




Subtle Social Justice Serpents :: By Patrick Wyett

One of the more heartbreaking markers of these last days is the onset of the great apostasy. While true Christians understand our times as prophecy foretold, some may not understand how deep and subtle false teaching in the church has become.

“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1)

In this context “subtle” means crafty, clever, cunning and devious. The serpent in Genesis was a form for the Devil.  While Eve didn’t recognize who she was dealing with, Jesus describes Satan for us in John 10:10 as a thief who comes “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy“. He is the Father of Lies who has many adopted children.

Yet many Christians, including pastors, act as if biblical warnings against false teachers are meant for others, not them. They have not been vigilant or sought God’s counsel through prayer, instead relying on their own understanding and that of likewise deceived friends and authority figures.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:3)

In recent years, minds have been corrupted by a subtle lie that’s gained traction in the body of Christ. It’s called “social justice”, and it’s not just for communists anymore.

Social justice is a facet of Cultural Marxism, which as the name implies, wages cultural war against the foundations of Western Civilization, including and specifically Christianity.

Oh Laodicean Church, where is the spiritual discernment? This is nothing more than leftist political ideology wrapped in Christian-sounding rhetoric targeted for church consumption.

“Social justice” distorts scripture to emphasize “good works” in an effort to change political society to pacify aggrieved factions, deemphasizing the greater need to reach out to lost souls in need of salvation.

Jesus didn’t come to change the political order, He came to save the world. When He comes again, that’s when the political order will be finally and perfectly changed to His ideal, not that of fallen man. That’s when the enemies of God will get their justice.

Christian compassion and charity (love is another word for charity) are important teachings and proper actions as the Holy Spirit leads us. Needed sermons can and have been preached on these fruits of our faith without mingling it with the lie of social justice.

Social justice isn’t the Gospel of Christ or even part of that gospel. The word “gospel” simply means “good news.” The bad news is we’re all sinners, wretched before a Holy God because of our rebellion. His perfect justice dictates that all of us deserve Hell. We’re incapable by and of our works to achieve anything but God’s judgment. The “Good News” is:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

The sinless Son of God, Jesus, came into the world to suffer and die in our place, having the wrath of God that we deserve instead placed on Him, that by His shed blood, His willing sacrifice for us, that we might be “saved” if we would but repent of our sins and believe on Him. He died, was resurrected on the third day, and is coming again for those obedient faithful who love Him.

To stray from this simple message is to adulterate the gospel, exchanging truth for what the apostle Paul calls “another gospel.”

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-8)

So repugnant is such a twisting of the Gospel of Christ, that Paul repeats himself in the next verse.

“As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:9)

Pastor, if you’re preaching “social justice” you’re reinforcing what congregants in your church hear from openly Marxist teachers, professors and other deceived influences. Satan is the author of confusion and that’s exactly what you’re contributing to.

Many such pastors are well-intentioned and sincere. I assure you, they’re sincerely wrong.

“Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that those of us who teach will be judged by a stricter standard.” (James 3:1)

All who labor for the faith need to have solemn understanding here. Liberalism and Marxism are the same side of a satanically-minted coin. They are diametrically opposed to Christianity.

So what, exactly, is social justice? It’s an umbrella term for a variety of leftist political ideas, having at its core the forced redistribution of wealth.  This foundational concept is culled from “The Communist Manifesto” written by Karl Marx with an assist from Friedrich Engels in 1848.

 “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.” —Karl Marx

Thus, all Marxist theories are aggressively atheistic, and at least in the revolutionary phase, rely heavily on coveting what others have earned.

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.” (Exodus 20:17)

As Thomas Sowell has stated, “Envy plus rhetoric equals “social justice.”

A point to remember; Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Nazism (aka National Socialism) are all derivatives of Marxist theory. It’s not Communists on the left and Nazis on the right, it’s all left, which is completely godless, totalitarian government. If Marxist methodology sounds eerily like Islam, it’s because the two share the same architect; Lucifer.

When Black Lives Matter loots and riots, they’re pressing their concept of social justice. Antifa attacking whomever they disagree with? They’re fighting for social justice. It’s about the “oppressed” demanding their “rights”, as in their right to coerce others to concede to their demands.

To a Muslim, not being allowed to live under Sharia Law is oppression. Homosexual oppression can mean a society not fully and forcibly embracing their agenda.

Look for key words like: justice, privilege, vulnerable and oppression.

All Marxist revolutions are “sold” as being on behalf of the poor, the oppressed and the downtrodden.  As we know from the 20th century, when Marxism went from political theory to bloody application, it’s really about the acquisition of total power for the leaders of the revolution. The “oppressed” who are duped into fighting for the cause, once successful, are either slaughtered or enslaved.

For perspective, acclaimed communist organizer Saul Alinsky was a champion of social justice. Two of his more famous acolytes are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Yes, “social justice” has a purpose.

Antonio Gramsci was an Italian Marxist philosopher who witnessed the fall of Czarist Russia to the communist forces of Vladimir Lenin. Gramsci surmised that Lenin’s tactics of stirring up the masses of poor into a communist revolution, successful in that predominately low tech, agrarian nation, would not work in an industrialized, prosperous, and predominately Christian country like the United States due to its opportunity and willingness to address actual injustices.

Therefore Gramsci postulated a more subtle route of conquest, one of infiltrating a nation’s culture and destroying it from within. Said Gramsci:

“The civilized world has been saturated with Christianity for 2000 years, and a regime grounded in Christian beliefs and values could not be overthrown until these roots were cut.”

A quote attributed to Joseph Stalin embodies this same thought:

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

Former FBI Agent, Cleon Skousen, in his seminal 1958 book, The Naked Communist outlines specific communist plans for the destruction and takeover of our society and nation. He lists 45 goals toward those ends. Here’s a handful for your perusal. I urge you to look up the rest.

Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books,  magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it  violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

Other stated goals, over time, have been modified:

 Use technical activist decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions and laws by claiming their activities existence violate civil rights and/or the Constitution.

 Continue discrediting American culture, history and Christian heritage, by degrading all  forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all    good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless  forms.”

Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and leftist special-interest groups (BLM, Antifa, Muslim organizations  like CAIR,, anarchists, Marxists, and the LGBTQ crowd) should rise up and use “united   force“  to solve economic, political or social problems.

And lastly:

Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

Many Christian colleges and seminaries have been infiltrated with this same “social” religion, known in its current incarnation under the benign label of “social justice.”

We should know better, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices [tactics]” (2 Corinthians 2:11).

Satan has gotten an advantage because far too many are ignorant of his devices.

When a sermon on social justice was preached at my church several months back, it raised some concerns. Three of us took those concerns to the church elders.

“Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.” (1 Timothy 5:19)

We interpreted no sinister motives, surmising that the pastoral staff merely didn’t understand the history and true objectives of “social justice.” We wished to share our understanding and knowledge to help our elder team in an area, which by their admission, they were unfamiliar with.

To their credit, they took us seriously. To our dismay, they rejected our counsel, ultimately questioning our motives for “confronting” them. Pride is a destructive thing for anyone to harbor, especially those in a position of church authority. Couple this with a complete lack of discernment even after being presented with the truth.

I still love those guys but such revelations are very disconcerting.

Thereafter I listened to a wonderful sermon on calling out false teachers and teachings from Second Timothy. One of the best I’ve ever heard on the topic.

It certainly had the feeling of being aimed at all of us who questioned social justice.

It’s a difficult proposition to attempt to take Satan’s blinders off of the eyes of those whose admiration and loyalty are to “celebrity Christians”—big names who write self-aggrandizing books and speak at packed conferences to push their enlightened “modern” ideas on what Christianity means.

“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” (Matthew 15:8-9)

Our discussion degenerated into the elder team defending a “celebrity Christian” messenger of social justice who had enthralled some of the church leadership rather than focusing on social justice itself. It came down to the chief elder putting his faith in the opinions of those other elders whom he loves and trusts, those who follow the teachings of Russell D. Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, which is the public-policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Moore is touted as an evangelical theologian. A theologian is one who studies and is an expert in theology. Not to disparage the reputation of godly theologians, but Satan is the world’s foremost theologian. The relevant issue here is what directs the theologian, biblical truth or satanic deceit?

A disclaimer here, I’ve been told that I hold a harsh view of Dr. Moore. In my defense it’s not just Russell Moore, but any subtle social justice serpent (or other false teacher) who does Satan’s bidding in the church. Tim Keller, Jim Wallis and John Piper also come to immediate mind.

As a dear Brother in Christ reminds me, even the best of men are still just men.

These aren’t the best of men.

Yes, they look and play the part of respected Christian teachers. Is that surprising?

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:11-13)

Allow me to make a distinction here. The deceived believe the lie, the deceiver believes in the lie. That is to say, those deceived fall for the lie, believing it to be true. The deceivers, like those mentioned by name above, know better. They understand what they’re doing.

When one runs into unbiblical teaching in their churches, one of three things needs to happen. Either the pastor needs a change of mind and heart, the church needs a new pastor or the attendee needs a new church. This is where we pray for the pastor and elders, the church, and what we as individuals should do. Be patient but be persistent. God’s will, not mine or yours, be done.

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17-18)

My wife and I both got the same answer to our prayers independent of each other, about three hours apart.

Don’t concern yourself if there’s a better church option out there. God’s already considered this. Trust Him that He knows what He’s doing, especially when you don’t. Be obedient, not doubting. Pray earnestly.

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11)

It’s a hard thing to leave our church but that’s what God’s told us to do. Under these circumstances, it would be a harder thing to stay. We’re at peace.

“Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.” (1 Timothy 5:19-20)

Let these words serve as my public rebuke here, and to all who preach social justice.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

To take a stand against unsound doctrine is to invite criticism and even ostracism. Been there, done that. Steel your mind to this possibility. I may lose friends over what’s been written;

“…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)
