There are many layers of Islam. The politically correct crowd has taken to such phrases as “radical islamists” or “radicalized” to justify the recent slaughter of innocents that they have brought about to justify the so called ‘arab spring,’ along with the slaughter and religious cleansing that is taking place in the Middle East and Africa. Even bringing it to western nations as a peaceful misunderstood religion. The following video in my opinion shows the total lack of understanding by so many in the West.
That is how they justify their beliefs. Totally ignoring the history of Islam, Mohammed and what it stands for. I am not a theologian or scholar, nor do I want to do an in-depth study of the Koran. But researching the very basics of what they believe it should be enough to make everyone in the West, especially Christians take a step back and say ‘wait a minute.’ This is not right. But it seems to be having the opposite effect.
Many westerners are following a path of darkness to the point they believe everything that clearly contradicts the teachings of God and Jesus. It doesn’t take long to see that this is what the Apostles warned us about. This video shows the clear ignorance of what is transpiring in the Middle East. When one of our ‘allies’ can use this barbaric law to keep women from driving with the excuse that it hurts their childbearing abilities, justification for beating someone to death simply for what they believe in, stoning or beheading something is very wrong.
Saudi Arabia who is a staunch follower of Sharia (Islamic law), has beheaded 10 people already in 2015. They ban ‘tempting eyes’, liberals are flogged, and women arrested for driving or traveling without a male relative companion. It was pointed out to me that one of Pakistan’s previous leaders said this: “Islam is our faith, democracy is our policy, socialism is our economy. All power to the people.” That statement was in 1966 and then Pakistan took a turn toward Sharia law, further embracing Islam. But Islam has been misunderstood and doesn’t even make Christians or others in the West take notice. In fact, they believe Jesus (as a prophet, not the Son of God) will return with their savior to kill the Christians who don’t convert to Islam should be enough, but again it’s not. The fact that their messenger was choked into submission to begin Islam doesn’t cause warning bells to go off for Christians. Never mind the fact that Democracy clashes headlong into what they believe as the law of the Prophet. Democracy and Sharia law can not mix and westerners don’t understand that. What is the definition of Democracy?
Democracy: government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system. a state having such a form of government: The United States and Canada are democracies.
What is the definition of ‘Sharia Law’?
sharia law – the code of law derived from the Koran and from the teachings and example of Mohammed; “sharia is only applicable to Muslims”; “under Islamic law there is no separation of church and state”
What do Muslims believe?
Iman-e-Mufassil (or the Detailed declaration of faith)
I have faith in Allah and His Angels, His Books and His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment and that all good and evil and fate is from Allah and it is sure that there will be resurrection after death.
Sounds harmless right? Without going into the teachings of Mohammed, or the fact they base their belief on his peaceful life. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find the murderous rampages he performed, beheading thousands of non-believers and taking their women and children as slaves. One such girl who was 6 years old, was saved until 9 years old when Mohammed had his way with her. She became a child bride forced into marriage and servitude, which I might add continues to this day by the so called radicals murderous rampages.
One thing that sticks out sharply in the articles of faith above is the statement, “I have faith in Allah and His Angels.” That raised the hackles on my neck tremendously. As Christians, we certainly believe in angels as God’s messengers, His protectors, but we do not worship them.
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. But he said to me, “Do not do that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book. Worship God.” (Revelation 22:8-9)
It is too reminiscent of the fact that Satan took 1/3 of the Angels of God when he was banished from the Throne. Remember, God created the Angels to serve Him and man. Satan has resented that and ever since has tried to eradicate the seed of man and continues to this day. The Bible tells us that Satan can transform himself into an angel of light. Paul taught extensively on this and we are seeing it manifest in this man made religion. Colossians chapter 2 is very detailed. Here is a portion of the warnings given by Paul:
Colossians 2:16-19 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.
And then there’s this from Jesus himself:
“For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.…
2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”
1 Timothy 4:7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
Denying the power of the Son, the Father and the Holy Spirit is something that Jesus warned fervently about, yet this doesn’t deter or affect many who claim to be a part of the Body of Christ. Yet it goes un-noticed by western Christians. When they allow the calls to worship for the Muslims to be broadcast from our college campuses and National Cathedrals, they are clearly going against the warnings from God. One such warning from Jesus himself is completely thrown to the wind.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
So denying that Christ is the Son of God carries a stiff penalty in our eternity, yet whole congregations in the Body of Christ are doing that, either by participating in or remaining complicit or silent.
