Skip to comments.10 Things Every Christian Should Know About Islam
Posted on 04/28/2019 5:00:46 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
1. Muslim and Arab are not the same thing. Muslim is a religious term....
2. The word Islam means submission....
3. There are two major denominations of Muslims....Sunni and Shia. Sunnis are the vast majority, at 85 percent of all Muslims....
4. Islamic theology could be summarized as belief in one God, his prophets, his books, his angels, his decrees, and the final judgment....
5. Islam teaches that Jesus was a great prophet. Islam affirms that Jesus was born of a virgin, that he lived a sinless life, that he performed mighty miracles, and that he will come again at the end of history.... However, it explicitly denies the deity of Christ and repudiates the title Son of God as blasphemous. It also (according to the majority view) denies he died on the cross...
6. Islamic practice can be summarized by the Five Pillars of Islam....
7. The vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists. In fact, normal Islamic religious law forbids the intentional killing of non-combatants in battle. It also forbids suicide. Its a small minority view that allows these things, and its a small minority who engage in terrorist activities...
8. Muslims can be some of the friendliest, most hospitable people on earth. They make great neighbors and great friends. No Christian should be afraid to build a relationship with a Muslim....
9. Muslims need salvation through Jesus Christ. They are lost exactly like any other non-Christianneither more nor less than anyone else. Furthermore, Muslims do come to faith in Jesus Christ. It usually takes time, and extended exposure to the Word of God and the lives of Christians, but more Muslims are coming to faith today than at any other point in history...
10. God loves Muslims, and so should weeven those few who are our enemies.....

Islam is a terrorist ideology, the practice of which that should be excluded for First Amendment protection, just as with the ideology of cannibalism, Aztec human sacrifice, and crimes against humanity.
Referring to the terrorists as “radical Muslims” displays vast ignorance.
“Radical Muslims” are those who DO NOT slaughter Christians, Jews, and other non-Muslims who refuse to convert. Such radical (unfaithful) Muslims are subject to being murdered by true Muslims for their failure to practice or support Muslim terrorism.
I would call Muslims like that heretics.
They are not doing what Allah wants done or following the examples of Muhammad.
There are several places in the Koran that tell Muslims not to make friends with non-believers. - Tom
Ding! Ding! Ding! Give that man a cigar!
This is just chocked full of propaganda. It completely leaves out the goals and methods of Islam. Such as the fact that Islam teaches that others must convert or die. Such as the fact that they are instructed to conquer.
I will add “thegospelcoalition” to my list of comped organizations.
Yes, they are.
Their own quran tells them to be.
I reject all muslims and all of islam...period.
But he's full of crap.
“Muslims can be some of the friendliest, most hospitable people on earth. They make great neighbors and great friends.”
Yea, as long as they are less than 5-10% of the population, then they start making demands that you change YOUR culture to suit them.
And though very few Muslims are terrorists, almost ALL terrorists are Muslims.
There, now that that's settled, who wants some pork chops for dinner?
THAT makes sense.
So I guess they think he never said that he was the Son of God.
I have no problem with islam meaning submission.
We submit to God’s will as Christians.
But it’s kinda clear in some passages that mohommed meant that others should be forced to submit to islam.
that’s no good.
Thus they do not regard the New Testament as a reliable source of information about Jesus. They would say the only reliable source about the 'real' Muslim Jesus, whom they call "Isa ibn Maryam" (Jesus son of Mary), is the Koran.
That solves the issue.
Clears up a lot of things now.
I was going to do 9/11 ten times, but that about does it. And we are having pork tonight, tyvm.
If a person decides to read the Koran they should know the chapters are out of order. The Mecca and Medina chapters are out of order.
There are the peaceful Mecca chapters where Muhammad preached for 13 years and was driven out by his own tribe, to flee 200 miles north to Medina.
The violent Medina chapters are where Muhammad continued preaching but started killing people who wouldn't convert to Islam.
You can find the correct order of the 114 chapters on the internet. - Tom
And all forms of lying and deceit are okay for muslims to do to non-muslims.
And that raping non muslim women is perfectly ok.
11. The entire world must become muslim under a single muslim leader.
12. All non-muslims (infidels) have 3 choices when under muslim authority a. Covert to islam, b. Become the slave of islam and pay a yearly tax that can be varied from 0 to 100 percent. c. Be murdered.
One point the article fails to mention, and is a very important one in my book, is that Christianity predates islam by hundreds of years. (700) IIRC.
Another point is that islam has always been spread by the tip of the spear, not willingly or without being forced.
I have rarely read such a load of nonsense and outright lies.
One would be forgiven for thinking it was written by a mohammedan.
Reality is that all mohammedans are taught that you personally must follow mohammedan law or be killed.
A simple fact.
And the power of God to save extends to even followers of Islam.
And many of them have to flee or are killed shortly after.
Anything that claims to be a religion but does not allow you to freely exit is not a religion but a murderous cult.
