Summary: Learn the truth about the maze of Muslim theology. This series will properly prepare anyone to discern Islam’s errors.
“The Muslim Maze”, Pt. 1
This study is not an attack on the Muslim, but a way to address the maze that a Muslim is put into once he or she submits to Muhammad’s so called revelations!
We will expose their system of belief and unravel the tangled web that makes up Islam!
To Begin This Study…
1. We Must Unravel The Sacred Verses From The Secular.
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 does have complete control over all areas of thought and action. It’s power ranges from the pew to their politics, from the family to the job, from the diet to the dress.
Key: A good Muslim is controlled completely by Islam and the Quran! There is very little liberty when compared to Christianity!
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 Iraq at this time!
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!
Whenever Islam is the dominant religion in a country, it changes the culture and gives it a 7th century Arab appearance.
For many reasons, Afghanistan has adjusted over the 2 years from the Taliban culture to a more democratic control. Why aren’t the terrorists working harder to stop democracy there? One word…OIL. (OPEC)
Democracy is purely an American invention! Realize, only two Arab nations are democratic. Democracy is considered a direct threat to Islam.
I do think it’s important to understand that every Muslim nation does not have to be a democracy as we see it! America has to respect that!
Anwar Sadat said a year before he was assassinated by Islamic fundamentalists, “No politics in Islam and no Islam in politics.”
To the top spiritual leader in Egypt at the time, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, this statement was Islamic rebellion, he said, “The president was a renegade who should be killed.”
By the way this man is now in a U.S. prison for being the mastermind behind the World Trade Center bombing in 1993!
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.”
2. We Must Unveil Islam’s Growth Around The World.
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today. There are over 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. There are on average 11,000 converts to Islam each year in the United States. There are more Muslim in the U.S. than there are Episcopalians!
Dr. Robert Morey says in his book “Islamic Invasion”, “Islam is the driving force in over 50 nations and of those, over 40 nations are now 87% Muslims!”
Islam is the second largest religion in the world behind Christianity.
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.
Oil money has allowed Islam to buy abandoned churches and turn them into Mosques. If this continued growth keeps up by 2010 many experts believe that there will be more radical Muslims in England than Christians…it will be the first Muslim European country!
Radical Islam is the dominant religion in North Africa and Central Africa, Indonesia, the Middle East, and parts of Turkey.
Get this, “From 1981 through 2000, there have been more than 9,000 terrorists attack worldwide”. …Heritage Foundation
This is why this Pastor believes that fundamental Islam is a largest threat to the world! These card-carrying, bomb-carrying fundamentalists are gaining a tighter grip on Muslims around the world and this is why fighting terrorism is the highest responsibility that every nation has at this time!
On September 20, 2001 President Bush addressed Congress and the nation and in it he said…“Great harm has been done to us…I will not forget this wound to our country or those who inflicted it. I will not yield, I will not rest, I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people…the course of this conflict is not known; yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them…”
