The Islamic religion has been in the news quite often lately.
The big push is to convince people, especially within America,
that the Islamic Faith is a "great" religion and a
harmless threat to America.
The truth is, we need to THINK about this issue by asking
some very basic questions of those who support the Islamic Faith.
If America claims to be a Christian nation, then we are deceiving
ourselves, and are allowing our "tolerance" for other
cultures and beliefs to blind us to the ultimate outcome of NOT
taking a firm stand for what is right, true and BEST for America,
despite what that may mean.
(NOTE: Even if you personally do not accept Christianity
as true, you STILL have to ask the following questions because
you are dealing WITH a group of people who very MUCH believe in
their religion and it WILL impact you whether you have any
personal beliefs about God or not.)
How can we listen to talk of the Islamic religion being a valid,
God ordained belief system when they speak such contrary things
against the Christian Faith? By claiming that Christ was just a
Prophet, they are, in affect, telling us that our religion is a
false religion and that Christ was a liar and false Prophet. WHY? Because
if He were just a Prophet, then He spoke lies about Himself and
mislead His followers. Are we so blind as to miss this obvious
- IF the Islamic Faith claims to worship the same God as
Christianity, then WHY is it a death penalty sentence to try to
convert an Islamic individual to Christianity??? We have had our
citizens held against their will for that very reason. IF we
worship the SAME God, then why should they care what religion
someone claims as long as it is accepting the same God?
- IF the Islamic Faith accepts Jesus Christ as simply a
Prophet, then this is blatantly accusing Him, AND the Christian
Faith, of being FALSE...
CONSIDER: If Jesus Christ is accepted merely as a Prophet,
then how do we reconcile the very things He, Himself said about
Himself, and what His Apostles said about Him?
- He is the son of God:
Matt 16:15 "He said to them, But whom say you that I am?
:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the
Son of the living God. :17 And Jesus answered and said to him,
Blessed are you, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not
revealed it to you, but my Father which is in heaven. :18 And I
say also to you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will
build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
- He is the ONLY way to eternal life:
Acts 4:10 "Be it known to you all, and to all the people
of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye
crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him does this
man stand here before you whole. :11 This is the stone which was
set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the
corner. :12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is
none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be
- Jesus claimed to BE God:
Phil 2:6 "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not
robbery to be equal with God. :7 But made himself of no
reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made
in the likeness of men. :8 And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself, and became obedient to death, even the
death of the cross. :9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted
him, and given him a name which is above every name:"
- Every knee will bow to Him:
Phil 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of
things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the
- All religions of the world will be replaced at His return:
Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in
heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our
Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Dan 2:34 you sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which
smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken
to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors;
and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the
stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Phil 3:21 "Who shall change our vile body, that it may
be fashioned like to his glorious body, according to the
working whereby he is able even to subdue all things to
If we are awake at all, we will realize that the Islamic
belief system has at it's core, the fundamental belief that
Islam will conquer the world and will replace all religions, even
at the point of killing any who resist this religion.
You need to educate yourself to this threat and to be ready
to give an answer to the position that embraces the Islamic Faith
as a "great religion," even by our own leaders.
Lastly, if we claim to be a Christian nation, and truly
believe our God and His Bible, then we need to believe WHAT IT
Gal 1:8 "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach
any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you,
let him be accursed. :9 As we said before, so say I now again, If
any man preach any other gospel to you than that you have
received, let him be accursed."
2 Thess 1:7 "And to you who are troubled rest with us,
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty
angels, :8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not
God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus
Does the Islamic Faith believe and accept the Gospel of
Christ? NO! Notice also that Christ nowhere tells us to kill
others of different beliefs, unlike what a majority of Islam
believes. Get the facts from the following website:
Please note: This isn't to say that the Islamic people
themselves are evil, but that their upbringing and training has
blinded them to the truth of their religion's goals, and what
the ultimate outcome of their claimed beliefs will be. As long as
they accept and promote this belief system, the threat remains to
ANY Christian nation and people, and to themselves.
