The TRUTH about Islam: 7 Ways for a Christian to Respond
Email from Professor, Th M | 10/09/01 | J.B. Hixon, Th M, College of Biblical Studies

Posted on 10/09/2001 3:19:08 PM PDT by Humidston

2 Timothy 3:13
"But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."

These words of Paul are clearly prophetic. Writing just months before he was martyred in Rome, Paul reminds the church that as time progresses, the influence of Satan on the earth will grow worse and worse and deception will intensify. If that was true nearly 2000 years ago, it is even more true today! Never before in human history have we had access to so much information: television, cable, satellite, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, etc. Yet the more information we have, the more avenues for deception Satan has. There is a fundamental difference between information and truth. Truth is information; but information is not always true.

To that end, it is important that we filter all that we hear from the media through the lens of Truth-God's Word. This is especially true in light of the current circumstances surrounding the U.S. war on terrorism. As I hear the "experts" speak about the similarities between Islam and Christianity and the supposed common foundation these religions share, I am disheartened, to say the least. I understand the precarious position that our government leaders are in. They have to be careful not to offend Muslim-Americans. And I also understand that not all Muslims strictly follow the teachings of the Koran. That is, not all Muslims are "fundamentalists." But to say that Islam is a religion of peace is simply not accurate. Even a cursory reading of the Koran (Holy Book of Islam) and the Hadith (the sacred sayings of Mohammed) demonstrates that this popular and growing religion is not about peace. It is about war--war with Christianity and Judaism.

While Muslims acknowledge several "holy books," including their own version of the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel, the Koran is clearly the final, authoritative word in Islam. According to Muslim clerics the teachings of the Koran supercede all other books. Furthermore, the sacred sayings of Mohammed outside of the Koran (called the "Hadith") as passed down orally and recorded by Al Bukhari, are also authoritative. The Hadith serves as an expansion or elaboration on the Koran. As proof that Islam, which means "submission" in Arabic, is about war and not peace, consider the following quotes from the Koran and Hadith.

Mohammed was once asked: What is the best deed for the Muslim next to believing in Allah and His prophet? His answer was: "To participate in Jihad in Allah's cause." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 1:25) Jihad is an Arabic word that means, "struggle." In Islam, Jihad is the struggle for the cause of Allah using all means available, including violence. This kind of Jihad is often referred to as a "Holy War," and in fact the terms Jihad and holy war have become almost synonymous.

Mohammed once said, "I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, none has the right to be worshipped but Allah." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 4:196) And Mohammed also said, "The person who participates in holy battles in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward or booty (i.e. if he survives) or will be admitted to paradise (i.e. if he is killed)." (Al Bukhari, Vol. 1:35)

In the Koran, Allah orders all Muslims to terrorize non-Muslims. "Strike terror in the hearts of the enemies of God and your enemies." (Surah 8:60) "Fight them and God will punish them by your hands." (Surah 9:14) "I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them. It is not ye who slew them; it was God." (Surah 8:13-17) "And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter..." (Surah 2:191) "And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah..." (Surah 2:193) "O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard against evil." (Surah 9:123) "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall." (Surah 61:4) "O ye who believe (i.e. Muslims), take not the Jews or the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you who turns to them for friendship is of them." (Surah 5:51)

Clearly it is not true to say that Islam promotes peace. Does this mean, then, that all Muslims are promoters of violence, hatred and terror? Of course not. Just as not all Christians closely follow the teachings of God's Word (unfortunately!), not all Muslims adhere to the teachings of the Koran (fortunately!). Many Muslims are more liberal or "moderate" and choose not to obey the teachings of Mohammed relative to Jihad. But make no mistake, since its inception in the early seventh century AD, Islam has been about conquering Jews and Christians and turning everyone to Allah. Islam was born in 622 AD when Mohammed fled from Mecca to Medina under persecution because of his radical views. The conflict between Mohammed and the Jews only intensified over the next 10 years until Mohammed's death in 632, and the tension between Israel and Islam has not died down to this day.

How should Christians respond to Muslims and Islam in general? First, love them as Christ loves them. Second, pray that their eyes will be open to the deception that has them captive. Third, be a genuine friend to them. Fourth, if they seem passive or moderate in their adherence to the Koran, engage in a non-threatening dialogue with them by asking thought-provoking questions like, "Can you explain what the Koran means when it tells Muslims to fight against non-Muslims." Because of the actions of Muslim extremists, moderate Muslims are more open to hearing the true Gospel now than at any other time in our history! Fourth, be respectful of their views. Remember that they have just as much a right in America to believe in Allah and Mohammed as we do to believe in God and Christ. Fifth, if they seem vigilant in their adherence to the Koran, be aware that they view you as their enemy. Sixth, recognize that the very real possibility exists that the current conflict between America and the terrorists may ignite (if it hasn't already!) into a full-blown holy war between Islamic fundamentalists and Jews/Christians. When or if this happens, many "moderates" within the Islamic community will quickly become "fundamentalists." Seventh, remember this promise from the Word of God: "Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; For the LORD will be your confidence..." (Prov. 3:25-26)

On October 7, 1571, a small fleet of Spanish and Venetian ships destroyed a large part of the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Lepanto off the coast of Greece. This represented a dramatic turnaround in the fortunes of the Islamic invaders of Europe, and much of the credit was given to Pope St. Pius V, who called for Christians throughout Europe to pray the Rosary and request the Blessed Mother's help.

To commemorate the Christian victory at the Battle of Lepanto, Pius V declared a new feast day in the Christian calendar on October 7th, in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Call it a bizarre coincidence if you would, but the U.S. bombing campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan began on October 7, 2001.

Ever ask yourself why is it no one worries about offending us (Christians, that is)?

Answer: Evil has no conflict with evil.

It really drives me up the wall when I see attempts to "harmonize" Judaism, Mohammedism, and Christianity. The list of differences is deep and wide, but none more important than the obvious divergence on the question of who Jesus is.

I consider myself a Bible-believing Christian, and truly believe that the only way to get to God is through Christ (John 14:6).

I must also confess that I have never read the Koran.

Also, there is no place on this Earth for terrorists, nor for those who aid or abet them.

However, let's be careful about posts like these at a time like this. I'm sure any half-clever Bible student could write a similar essay using selected verses from the Bible demonstrating how violent and vengeful Christianity is. I suspect the writer here takes most of his Koran verses out of context.

While I know that Islam leads only to destruction in eternity, that doesn't mean it leads to violence on Earth.

Again, I have never read the Koran, I do not own a Koran, and don't desire to do either one. I cannot offer "proof" the writer takes the verses out of context.

However, if one chose to do so, one could "prove" that Christianity is a religion rooted in violence.

Jesus said in Matt 10:34, "Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword"

What would someone unfamiliar with the Bible think of THAT?

Just be careful - it is easy to take things out of context. Like Charles Manson did, or the KKK.

Why do you think that Islam must have been taken out of context to be evil? You probably have been so preconditioned towards good because of Christianity that you have a hard time reconciling the idea that any religion, in context, could be so abjectly evil.

The Baal worshipers' religion from Old Testament times, in context, caused children to be passed through the fire and sacrificed. Is it any big thing that this man made religion could thrive on sacrificing one's enemies? That is the natural inclination of the flesh is it not? Face it, Islam is from Muhammad, Christianity is from God. They can not be reconciled.

But make no mistake, since its inception in the early seventh century AD, Islam has been about conquering Jews and Christians and turning everyone to Allah. Islam was born in 622 AD when Mohammed fled from Mecca to Medina under persecution because of his radical views. The conflict between Mohammed and the Jews only intensified over the next 10 years until Mohammed's death in 632, and the tension between Israel and Islam has not died down to this day.

Excellent point. There is a big difference in the way Muslims and non-Muslim treat each other. Here the article says that Christians should respond to Muslims and Islam in general by first, loving them, befriending them, respecting them, engage them in a non-threatening dialogue. There is one small problem with that, the Muslims ONLY consider other Muslims as their brothers and sisters. According to the Koran, the non-Muslims are considered non-believers of God.

"Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seek their friendship shall become one of their numbers. Allah does not guide the wrong-doers." (Koran 5:51) In this verse Allah is clearly instructing his followers never to befriend non-Muslims, in particular the Christians and Jews.

"Remember Thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers, I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them." (Koran 8:12.) The above verse from the Koran is giving step-by-step instructions to Muslims on how to torture and kill Kafirs (non-Muslims) if they don't follow Islam.

"Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their Home: an evil fate." (Koran 9:73) The above verse from the Koran is completely justifying war and barbaric acts on non-Muslims.

"In order that Allah may separate the impure from the pure, put all the impure ones (Non-Muslim), one on top of the another in a Heap and cast them into Hell. They will be the ones to have lost" (Koran 8:37.) The above verses instructs the Muslims to invade, destroy, kill and convert by force, something they have done for the past 1400 years.

Muhammad the founder of Islam (570-632 A.D.), drew the Arabs to Islam by promising salvation for those who died fighting for Islam. Islam preaches that non-Muslims should be converted by force or killed.

Islam is the fastest growing religion. The speed of this religious expansion can be attributed to the fact that it is accomplished through military conquest and forced conversions.

I'm not attempting to reconcile Christianity and Islam. I'm merely trying to separate the sinners (Muslims) from the sin (Islam). We were all sinners once. Hate the sin, but love the sinners. But do not mistake me for a peacenik, traitor, or a Blame-America-first type of person.

Eph 6:12: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

Let's be cautious about talk of genocide (post 29). Justice is essential, war may be necessary, but let's stop short of blanket genocide, just because people don't worship the same God, or just because a small percentage of fanatics want to trigger Armageddon.

We can, must, and will, handle this without resorting to genocide.

Hey, Humidston. Thanks for the bump. Since you asked for my opinion I'll attempt to assemble a coherent one.

I am not a scholar of Islam, or anything else, but what I believe is that Islam is a valid religion created by God for the salvation of souls. Valid religions are created by God to suit different temperaments. Each and every religion created by God goes through ebbs and flows of proper adherence by people. Hence Buddhism has been in a state of moral decline for hundreds if not thousands of years while Chistianity has been for a few decades. Hence there are Middle Eastern cities where anything and anyone is for sale, such as Baghdad, which had a long-time reputation as a dirty, disgusting city, but not always so. Perhaps we can point to supposed violent passages in the Qur'an; as in the Bible there may be individual passages which suggest a violence and bloodletting as proper usages of religion. Luckily in Christianity the Church alone has the responsibility to authoritatively interpret Scriptures, and as we are well aware there are divisions within Christendom where that authority is usurped to the detriment of indeed the entire world.

I am reminded of the Red Pioneers, basically a Boy Scout-type organization promulgated by murderous Marxist-Leninist-Communists in Russia, where they were seen as wholesome and harmless and patriotic. Generations of youths in Russia were raised in this organization, and indeed anything said against the Soviet system was seen as an attack on patriotism, Boy Scouts, and motherhood, but really the root of their society was in this murderous Communist ideology. The Russian people often times just didn't know any better, since their press was so controlled. I see a lot of the fanaticism in the Middle East the same way. There are generations of youths being taught to hate Israel and America, and anything which underscores the invalid observance of their valid religion is seen as an assault on their patriotism and way of life, albeit through the proxy of their religion, which few really adhere to in a serious way anyway.

Few of today's observant Muslims would have the ability to understand the Islamic success of a Hussein al-Hallaj, much as most Christians today would have no understanding of the Christian success of a St. Germaine or St. Francis of Assisi, much as most Hindus today would have no understanding of the Hindu success of a Sri Ramakrishna.

I must say I agree with tomlin7's post #36. Very succinct.

Face it, Islam is from Muhammad, Christianity is from God. They can not be reconciled.

I had not heard this disquieting information from a scholar regarding Islam to date, and believe the research (above) has produced very serious consequences to our future. I guess we could all hope this cleric is incorrect, but judging from the behavior of the members of the jihad, I doubt it.
