Summary: Jesus raised the dead and Mohammad killed the living. Jesus healed the sick and Mohammad harmed the healthy. Jesus released the oppressed and Mohammad enslaved the free! And it’s still happening today somewhere around the world!
I just want to go on record again as saying; these 2 weeks have not been a Muslim bashing, but rather it’s been an exposing of the mystery behind the veil that makes Islam so intriguing to its 1.5 billion followers.
Last week we found out the complexity of the Muslim messenger and the confusion of the Muslim message. The apostle Paul warned us from the Book of Galatians about the “different gospel” that Islam is.
This verse warns of us not only of Islam but any cult in existence. Wether it’s Mormonism, the New Age, Jehovah Witness - all fall into the category of a false religion!
So let’s get right into 3 contaminated areas of Islam:
1. Islam’s Identity.
In our western view of religion, we see religion as not having power over all parts of life. Where the Muslim is taught that Islam has complete control over all areas of thought and action.
Think of Islam as more cultural than it is religious. Think of Islam as 7th century Arab culture. For an American to step into an Arab culture is just as disturbing as an Arab stepping into the American culture! This is the fundamental problem with the Middle East today!
Let me put it this way, Muslims are not Islamic unless they look and act 7th century! Mohammed took the Arab way of life that was all around him, with all its customs, and made it into a religion!
FACT: Whenever Islam is the dominant religion in a country, it changes the culture and gives it a 7th century Arab appearance.
Islamic fundamentalists are actively working to take control of “secular” Muslim governments like…Turkey, Jordan, Malaysia, Egypt, Iraq and Libya.
What really is Islam? Islam means, “submission”.
Surah 5:44,47 “If any do fail to judge (govern) what Allah has revealed, they are unbelievers…If they fail to judge (govern) by what Allah has revealed, they are those who rebel.”
Dr. Robert Morey says in his book “Winning The War Against Radical Islam”, “Islam is the driving force in over 50 nations and of those, over 40 nations are now 87% Muslims!”
The Muslim baby boom is exploding. The top global fertility leaders are Islamic countries, and they’re migrating and taking their culture with them. Muslim countries are the principal suppliers of new Europeans and the second biggest supplier of new Canadians. What is the most popular boys’ name in Belgium, Amsterdam and Malmo, Sweden? Mohammed. It’s the 5th most popular boy’s name in the United Kingdom.
In England there are more Muslims than there are Methodist. In France and Germany the Muslims now number in the millions compared to just 10 years ago when it was hard to even find a Mosque.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi observed: “There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe — without swords, without guns, without conquest. The fifty million Muslims of Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.”
Norwegian Imam Mullah Krekar told an Oslo newspaper...
“Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes. Every Western woman in the EU is producing an average of 1.4 children. Every Muslim woman in the same countries is producing 3.5 children. Our way of thinking will be more powerful than yours.”
So the identity of many nations has changed dramatically over the last 25 years! This is planned and calculate - with out hardly firing a shot!
2. Islam’s Imprisonment.
A. Over Women’s Rights.
October 5, 2001, Oprah had on her show 31 year old Queen Rania, the westernized queen of Jordan.
These are the Queen’s own words spoken to millions of viewers that day, “Islam views woman as full and equal partners to men, so woman’s rights are guaranteed by Islam.”
If woman are equal to men, why does the Quran say...
• Surah 4:11 - Woman inherit half of what men can inherit.
• Surah 33:53 - A woman is not allowed to answer the door if her husband is not home and if the husband is not home she is not permitted to speak to anyone.
• Surah 33:33 - Women are to remain in the home. And they cannot travel outside of the home without the husband’s permission!
• Surah 33:55 - A woman can only show her face to her immediate family.
It’s documented in the Hadith that Muhammad said...
“A cheap rug is more valuable in a man’s home than a woman.”
B. Over Human Rights.
Since Israel has become a nation in 1948, 7th Century Islam has been on the rise and along with this growth and influence in the world, so has the lack of human rights!
KEY: A Muslim’s sense of value doesn’t come by recognition of God’s love, but by submission to Allah’s law.
