Why Islam Sucks


Islam Sucks 2

Here is a Muslim apologist defending Islam (well actually an edited version for easier readability in English. The unedited version is HERE):

 

Islam sucks? Who is Jesus? [You say] it’s Essa [aka Esa or Isa is Quran for Jesus], son of God? No, God don’t have anybody no family no dad no mom no bro no Baby no sis nothing he’s the creator. Mohammed is The One who gives us the peace! (Islam means peace! You say Brutal? All Christians Have much more Big Crimes. Bigger then Islam. 80% of Islam is On peace! And 60% of Christ is Peace!! You don’t know anything about Islam and you talk about it. ALLAH. Will show you one day a lesson. To say that the Islam sucks! Islam is the best! Peace! I don’t say Christ is not right or right! [hmm… maybe right or wrong] But Islam Is the best for me! Don’t talk about Islam like that. One day you will know why! (Zhaksbsu; March 18, 2016 at 6:29 PM; as NCCR comment to “Doesn’t This Matter?“ posted 10/10/13)

 

In full disclosure it is my sense that Zhaksbsu is sincere and not spewing disinformation propaganda (aka Taqiyya and here’s the expose on Muslim apologists lying that Taqiyya means piety). As is the case with many Muslims who like to be under the label “Moderate.” Zhaksbsu believes his Imam or Cleric when told the half-truth about Islam, peace, the Son of God and so on.

 

There are many Biblical references that show Islam is not only a false religion but also an antichrist religion.

 

21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

 

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2:21-23 NKJV)

 

Since Islam revered writings – the Quran in particular – deny that Jesus is the Son of God the Christ Savior of all who believe, Islam is an antichrist.

 

I discovered an ex-Muslim turned Christian that gives some solid reasons why Islam is a false religion. Then after that Yurki1000 gives a Grace oriented message to Zhaksbsu’s self-deceived thoughts that Islam is peace and good so don’t criticize Islam.

10 Reasons Islam Is Not From God

 

By Ney Reiber

The Interactive Bible

Islam: Truth or Myth?

 

Reason #1:

 

Islam cannot be from God because the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, did not pass God’s first test for a prophet. Deuteronomy 18:21-22 tells us that God will authenticate those He sends as a prophet by having them perform signs. Muhammad gave no sign as required by God.

 

(Deuteronomy 18:21,22, NAS95) 21 “You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’ 22 “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.

 

Muslims recognize this and try to overcome the principle of God confirming his revelation with signs by asserting that the revelation of the Qur’an itself is a sign. When Muhammad was challenged by the Jews and Christians to produce a sign, he received a special revelation from Allah.

 

Qur’an 6:37-39, 36. And they said: “Why is not a sign sent down to him from his Lord?” Say: “Allâh is certainly Able to send down a sign, but most of them know not.” 38. There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communitie like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. 39. Those who reject Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) are deaf and dumb in darkness. Allâh sends astray whom He wills and He guides on the Straight Path whom He wills.

 

Muslims claim that the Qur’an itself is the sign God gave Muhammad.

 

Notice the difference in the Muslim claims and the evidence put forward by the Hebrew writer in Hebrews 2:3-4,

 

“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”

 

Reason #2:

 

Islam cannot be from God because Muhammad’s teaching does not pass the second test God gave for a prophet. Deuteronomy 13:1-4 tells us that no prophet will bring a revelation that is in conflict with previous revelation. His revelation must agree with the previous revelation of God. Deuteronomy 13:1-4

 

Deuteronomy 13:1-4, 1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

 

Muhammad’s revelation contradicts the previous revelations in both facts and principles. Consider the account of Joseph. In the Qur’an, Qur’an 12, Yusuf Beginning in Ayah 21.

 

Qur’an 12:21-34, 21. And the Egyptian who bought him said to his wife: Give him an honorable abode, maybe he will be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son. And thus did We establish Yusuf in the land and that We might teach him the interpretation of sayings; and Allah is the master of His affair, but most people do not know. 22. And when he had attained his maturity, We gave him wisdom and knowledge: and thus do We reward those who do good. 23. And she in whose house he was sought to make himself yield (to her), and she made fast the doors and said: Come forward. He said: I seek Allah’s refuge, surely my Lord made good my abode: Surely the unjust do not prosper. 24. And certainly she made for him, and he would have made for her, were it not that he had seen the manifest evidence of his Lord; thus (it was) that We might turn away from him evil and indecency, surely he was one of Our sincere servants. 25. And they both hastened to the door, and she rent his shirt from behind and they met her husband at the door. She said: What is the punishment of him who intends evil to your wife except imprisonment or a painful chastisement? 26. He said: She sought to make me yield (to her); and a witness of her own family bore witness: If his shirt is rent from front, she speaks the truth and he is one of the liars: 27. And if his shirt is rent from behind, she tells a lie and he is one of the truthful. 28. So when he saw his shirt rent from behind, he said: Surely it is a guile of you women; surely your guile is great: 29. O Yusuf! turn aside from this; and (O my wife)! ask forgiveness for your fault, surely you are one of the wrong-doers. 30. And women in the city said: The chiefs wife seeks her slave to yield himself (to her), surely he has affected her deeply with (his) love; most surely we see her in manifest error. 31. So when she heard of their sly talk she sent for them and prepared for them a repast, and gave each of them a knife, and said (to Yusuf): Come forth to them. So when they saw him, they deemed him great, and cut their hands (in amazement), and said: Remote is Allah (from imperfection); this is not a mortal; this is but a noble angel. 32. She said: This is he with respect to whom you blamed me, and certainly I sought his yielding himself (to me), but he abstained, and if he does not do what I bid him, he shall certainly be imprisoned, and he shall certainly be of those who are in a state of ignominy. 33. He said: My Lord! the prison house is dearer to me than that to which they invite me; and if Thou turn not away their device from me, I will yearn towards them and become (one) of the ignorant. 34. Thereupon his Lord accepted his prayer and turned away their guile from him; surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

 

Now consider the same account from the Bible in Genesis 39:7-21

 

(Genesis 39:7-21, KJV) 7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. 8 But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; 9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? 10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. 11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. 12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out. 13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth, 14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice: 15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out. 16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

 

Consider the differences in the facts presented about the lives of the Biblical characters. In the Qur’an Potiphar was at the door when Joseph fled. He wasn’t at home in the Bible Account. In the Qur’an, Potiphar believed Joseph while in the Bible Potiphar believed his wife. In the Qur’an, Joseph requested that he be put in prison so that he might avoid the temptation of women and in the Bible, he was imprisoned by Potiphar for accosting his wife. Surely it is easy to see the differences. Joseph is just a sample. There are other contradictions in almost every account of the lives of Bible people. In the Qur’an, one of Noah’s sons died in the flood while in the Bible, all of them were on the ark. Compare the Biblical account of Lot with the Qur’an’s account of Lot (Lut in the Qur’an-NR). In the Qur’an, Abraham’s father was an idolater and forced Abraham to leave home for trying to teach monotheism, while the Biblical account has Abraham leaving after his father’s death.

 

Now consider just one principle that is set forth in the New Testament with the principles set forth in the Qur’an.

 

The New Testament, Matthew 5:44, But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 

The Qur’an, Qur’an 61, the Ranks, Ayah 4. Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall

 

The Qur’an, Qur’an 2, The Cow, Al Baqarah Ayah 190. And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. 191. And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

 

What a contrast. Jesus says to love, forgive, and pray for your enemies. The Qur’an says to kill them. If that isn’t a different doctrine than what was revealed, nothing is.

 

Reason #3:

 

Islam cannot be from God because it denies the Godhood of Jesus. In the Qur’an, Muhammad takes great pains to deny the deity of Jesus. It demeans Jesus and makes him just a man. In Philippians, Paul asserts that Jesus existed in the form of God.

 

Qur’an 4:171 “O people of the book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of God naught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: So believe in God and His messengers…”

 

(Philippians 2:5-9, NAS95) 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

 

Reason #4:

 

Islam cannot be from God because Muhammad frequently changed his revelations to suit circumstances. The classic example is Muhammad’s teaching on drinking. When he was just beginning to teach, before Muhammad gained a significant following he said that it was alright to drink.

 

Qur’an 2:219 They ask you Concerning wine; gambling, Say “In them is great sin, And some profit for men; But the sin is greater Than the profit.

 

As his power base grew, he presented a stronger position. It was not acceptable to have had any intoxicants close enough to prayers to fog the mind.

 

Qur’an 4:43 O you who believe! Approach not prayer With a mind befogged, Until you can understand All that you say.

 

When his position was strongly established, he forbade the use of intoxicants entirely.

 

Qur’an 5:93 O you who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (Dedication) of stones, And (divination by) arrows, Are an abomination, – Of Satan’ handiwork: Eschew such (abomination) That you may prosper. 94. Satan’s plan is (but) To excite enmity and hatred Between you, with intoxicants And gambling, and hinder you From the remembrance Of Allah, and from prayer: Will you not then abstain?

 

His final revelation calls the use of intoxicants “Satan’s handiwork.” This puts him in the awkward position of having had Allah approve of “Satan’s Handiwork’ when he said that there was “some profit for men” in the use of intoxicants.

 

Does God vacillate on sin?

 

Reason #5:

 

Islam cannot be from God because its appeal is to man’s lower nature rather than his higher nature. Compare the Biblical appeal of heaven to the Quranic appeal of heaven.

 

The Biblical Appeal

 

Matthew 5:10-12, 10. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

 

Peter 1:3-4, 3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

 

Mark 12:24-25, 24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

 

Revelation 7:9-17, 9. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

 

The Qur’an makes a large portion of its appeal to the fleshly appetites and sensibilities of man.

 

Qur’an 37: 40. But the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah, 41. For them is a Sustenance Determined, 42. Fruits (Delights) and they (Shall enjoy) honor and dignity, 43. In Gardens of Felicity, 44. Facing each other On Thrones (of dignity): 45. Round will be passed To them a Cup From a clear flowing fountain, 46. Crystal white, of a taste Delicious to those Who drink (thereof), 47. Free from headiness; Nor will they suffer Intoxication there from. 48. And beside them will be Chaste women, restraining Their glances, with big eyes (Of wonder and beauty) 49. As if they were (Delicate) eggs closely guarded.

 

Qur’an 4:57. But those who believe And do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit to Gardens, With rivers flowing beneath, – Their eternal home; Therein shall they have Companions [wives, NR] pure and holy; We shall admit them To shades, cool and ever deepening.

 

Qur’an 44:51. As to the Righteous (They will be) in A position of Security, 52. Among Gardens and Springs; 53. Dressed in fine silk And in rich brocade, They will face each other; 54. So; and We shall Join them to Companions With beautiful big And lustrous eyes. 55. There can they call For every kind of fruit In peace and security; 56. Nor will they there Taste Death, except the first Death: and He will preserve Them from the Penalty Of the Blazing Fire.

 

Which makes its appeal to the higher nature of man? The Bible does.

 

Which is more likely to be from God – that which appeals to man’s higher nature, or that which appeals to his baser nature? The Bible is more likely to be from God than the Qur’an because its appeal is to man’s higher nature, while the appeal of the Qur’an is to man’s lower nature.

 

Reason #6:

 

Islam cannot be from God because its morality is inferior to the morality taught by the New Testament. In examining the contradictions between the Bible and the Qur’an, we encountered Jesus’ teaching that we were to love and pray for our enemies while the Qur’an says to fight and kill your enemies. There is a tremendous gap in the standard of morality between the two standards. Which is more likely to be from God, the high standard of morality, or the low standard of morality?

 

Reason #7:

 

Islam cannot be from God because it is based upon a document, the Qur’an, made after God said revelation was finished.

 

Paul said that revelation would come to an end: 1 Corinthians 13:8, Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

 

Jude 3 tells us that the faith was fully delivered: Jude 3, Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

 

Peter said that every thing that was necessary for man to be pleasing to God had been revealed.

 

2 Peter 1:3, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

 

Reason #8:

 

Islam cannot be from God because it is based upon the Qur’an which has internal contradictions. Any revelation from God will be consistent within itself. It will not contain internal contradictions. Since the Qur’an does contain internal contradictions, it cannot be from God, and any religion that is based upon it is not from God.

 

The Qur’an says that man was created from a clot of blood.

 

Qur’an 96:1. Proclaim (or Read) In the Name Of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- 2. Created man out of A (mere) clot Of congealed blood;

 

The Qur’an says that man was created from was created from clay.

 

Qur’an 6:2 (Also 7:12) 2. He it is Who created You from clay, and then Decreed a stated term (For you). And there is In His Presence another Determined term; yet Ye doubt within yourselves!

 

The Qur’an says that man was created from was created from water.

 

Qur’an 25:54. It is He Who has Created man from water: Then has He established Relationships of lineage And marriage: for thy Lord Has power (over all things).

 

These are internal contradictions that indicate the origin of the Qur’an was not the mind of God, but the mind of man, Muhammad.

 

Reason #9:

 

Islam cannot be from God because the Qur’an frequently contradicts the Bible.

 

The Qur’an advocates the beating of wives who are perceived to be misbehaving.

 

Qur’an – 4:34 Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allâh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allâh and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allâh orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband’s property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allâh is Ever Most High, Most Great.

 

The Bible teaches that man is to love his wife and treat her as his own body.

 

Ephesians 5:25-29, 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

 

Surely God will not change his mind about such a significant principle in husband and wife relationships. The Quranic ideal is contrary to the teaching of the New Testament.

 

Reason #10:

 

Islam cannot be from God because it denies the crucifixion of Jesus.

 

The central figure of the New Testament is Jesus. From his temptations in the desert to the resurrection, the focus of Jesus is his death on the cross to provide a sacrifice for mankind’s sin. The Qur’an denies that Jesus died on the cross and that would then preclude his resurrection. It is the contention of Islam that God took Jesus into heaven and transformed Judas to look like Jesus. The teach that it was actually Judas who died on the cross.

 

Qur’an 4:157. That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus The son of Mary, The apostle of Allah”; But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, But so it was made To appear to them, And those who differ Therein are full of doubts, With no (certain) knowledge, But only conjecture to follow, For of a surety, They killed him not.

 

The Bible clearly and plainly teaches that Jesus was crucified on the cross.

 

Matthew 27:35, 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

 

1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

Acts Chapter 16 KJV

 

1. Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father wasa Greek:

 

2 Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.

 

3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.

 

4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.

 

5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

 

6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

 

7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

 

8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.

 

9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

 

10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

 

11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next dayto Neapolis;

 

12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.

 

13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.

 

14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

 

15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

 

16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:

 

17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.

 

18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

 

19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,

 

20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,

 

21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.

 

22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.

 

23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:

 

24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.

 

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

 

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

 

27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

 

28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

 

29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

 

30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

 

31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

 

32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

 

33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

 

34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

 

35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go.

 

36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.

 

37 But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.

 

38 And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.

 

39 And they came and besought them, and broughtthem out, and desired them to depart out of the city.

 

40 And they went out of the prison, and entered intothe house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

Nicer Polemics Against Islam


Spirit of Antichrist results

John R. Houk

© March 15, 2016

 

I am not one who has a lot of compassion for one devoted to being a believer in the theopolitical death cult known as Islam. Not just because of all the death and mayhem executed by adherents who attribute such actions to being a true follower of Islam and its prophet Muhammad. But also as a Christian I am very displeased the Quran, Hadith and Sira that specifies that Jesus Christ is only a man and not the Son of God who gave his life in death on the cross as the redemption price Adam and Eve’s treason in the Garden. That simple denial makes Muhammad an Antichrist preach and Mo’s followers as infected with an Antichrist spirit.

 

This centrality of Islam has led to some tough polemical anti-Islam thoughts placed in my blogs. For this Muslim Apologists, Leftist Multiculturalists and even some duped Conservatives label me an Islamophobic hate-monger, especially since a “majority” of Muslims claim to be “Moderate” in their Islamic faith and are not violent toward non-Muslims.

 

My problem with the “Moderate” moniker is such a Muslim still believes the Quran are the very words of Allah spoken through Muhammad and that there is no better example for humanity than the example and life of Muhammad. Sorry my critics, that thinking is still in line with an Antichrist mentality. I have no compunction favoring a religion or ideology that one of its central tenets is to call the Redeemer of humanity a mere man and teach the suppression of those that believe that Christ is the Son of God. Frankly I have changed my mind on the polemics.

 

However, as a Christian I need to learn how to share the Great Commission given by Christ to all Believing Christians.

 

The Great Commission

 

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

 

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b] (Matthew 28: 16-20 NKJV)

 

The Great Commission

 

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[a] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16: 14-18 NKJV)

 

And so I can’t see me changing the polemics when I read something a Muslim did that was scandalously heinous in relation to any normal society no matter the prevailing cultural faith or lack thereof. AND YET my Lord and Savior’s example of confrontation in a 1 Corinthian 13 manner is a level I will continuously work toward achieving. That means toning down adversarial trap anger gives into too often.

 

The Greatest Gift

 

13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.

 

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

 

Love never fails. … (1 Corinthians 13: 1-8 NKJV)

 

In an email from the Colson Center by Eric Mataxas telling about a book by Dr. Nabeel Qureshi entitled “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward”. Dr. Qureshi is a former Muslim who found Christ and now is very involved with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) which is devoted to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to non-Christians and Dr. Qureshi has a particular to share in a compassionate manner to Muslims.

 

Mr. Mataxas begins this email with a story that is one of those true stories of the brutality of Islam aimed specifically at Christians who were in a ministry situation in a Muslim majority populace within the grasp of Islamic terrorists. Then the email goes on to introduce an interview under the aegis of BreakPoint This Week which is an audio between Dr. Qureshi and John Stonestreet. The link to BreakPoint.org has the audio then the story in the story of the email. When I get to the link I’m only posting up to the audio link. If you want to read what Christians face in Muslim dominated nations, feel free to read the story either after listening to the audio or maybe even while listening.

 

Then after the audio I want to cross post a mini-seminar conducted by Dr. Nabeel Qureshi under RZIM followed closely by the video description. Now here’s the thing, the video stretch through 1 hour and 56 minutes of run time. Annoying there is about eight minutes of no sound and a picture of the seminar. Then at about the nine-minute mark the seminar begins with an intro. At about the fourteen-minute mark Dr. Qureshi speaks. At about the 56-minute mark Dr. Qureshi ends in prayer. And finally at around the 58-minute mark a lengthy Q & A session begins that is in relation to the speech.

An Unholy War

ANSWERING JIHAD

 

Email by Eric Mataxas

Is there any answer to violent jihad? Yes. It’s the same as God’s answer to sin.

 

Let me tell you a story that, tragically, has no happy ending. Vincent Minj, who is almost 80, was the oldest of six children growing up in rural India, and he remembers the day decades ago when his sister, Cecilia, fell into a well near their home and almost died.

 

Somehow however, Cecilia lived, and Vincent took her survival as a sign from God. He told The Indian Express newspaper, “I thought that if God had given her another life, it had to be used in His service . . . So I just took her along with me and got her admitted to the Missionaries of Charity.”

 

That order of nuns, of course, was founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta to care for the poorest of India’s poor who would otherwise die alone and unloved. Vincent, who was a preacher himself, told his father that Cecilia was going to get an education in the city of Ranchi. What she got instead was a lifetime of serving the poor in India, then the United States, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, and, finally, Yemen. She was proving the corollary of a famous observation by Mother Teresa: “A life not lived for others is not a life.”

 

On Friday, March 4th, Sister Anselm, as she’d come to be known, was working as a nurse in the lawless southern port city of Aden. More than 6,000 people have died and 2.5 million have been displaced in the mostly Arab Muslim country’s ongoing civil war.

 

Sister Anselm was serving breakfast for the residents of the retirement home when some men came to the front gate, saying they wanted to visit their mothers. This home, founded by Mother Teresa in 1992, was reportedly the last Christian facility in the country of more than 26 million people, and it ministered to developmentally disabled children, as well as to old and dying people.

 

Of course, the men at the gate were lying, and once they gained access, they handcuffed the residents and the nuns and shot them in the head. Sixteen people, including Sister Anselm and three other nuns, died. While groups linked to the Islamic State and al-Qaeda are roaming the city as if it were a dystopic, real-world version of “Mad Max,” no one has taken responsibility for the massacre, which the Vatican calls an “act of senseless and diabolical violence.”

 

Vincent now has only a worn photo of Sister Anselm to remember her by.

 

The story goes that a British newspaperman asked the redoubtable G.K. Chesterton what was wrong with the world. Rather than waxing eloquent on poverty, greed, or unjust social structures, the great author got right to the point: “I am,” he said.

 

And indeed, we all are, following our first parents into rebellion, degradation, and exile from the Garden. That’s why the good news of Christ’s death and resurrection for sinners is good, because we are so bad. And while there are many expressions of our unholy war against God in the 21st century, certainly the one grabbing the most headlines seems to be the radicals who apparently enjoy murdering and terrorizing people such as Sister Anselm in the name of Islam.

 

That’s why I hope you’ll listen to the latest installment of “BreakPoint This Week,” hosted by my friend and colleague John Stonestreet, who interviews Nabeel Qureshi about his great new book, “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward.”

 

Nabeel, who used to be a Muslim, is today a follower of Christ, and his book clearly and convincingly answers every question you’re likely to have about the religion founded by Muhammad.

 

Even better, it will help us sinners think through a truly Christian response to the unholy war we see in the news, as well as the Muslim neighbor who may live down the street. Don’t miss this “BreakPoint This Week”—it’s terrific! You can find it at BreakPoint.org, along with Nabeel’s book “Answering Jihad.”

VIDEO: Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward with Nabeel Qureshi Live Stream

 

 

Posted by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries

Streamed live 3/14/16

 

Join us for an insightful event with New York Times bestselling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi as he gives personal, challenging, and respectful answers to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.

After Nabeel’s presentation there will be a live question and answer session.

San Bernardino was the most lethal terror attack on American soil since 9/11, and it came on the heels of a coordinated assault on Paris. There is no question that innocents were slaughtered in the name of Allah and in the way of Jihad, but do the terrorists’ actions actually reflect the religion of Islam? The answer to this question is more pressing than ever, as waves of Muslim refugees arrive in the West seeking shelter from the violent ideology of ISIS.

Setting aside speculations and competing voices, what really is Jihad? How are we to understand Jihad in relation to our Muslim neighbors and friends? Why is there such a surge of Islamist terrorism in the world today, and how are we to respond?

My Problem with Islam


Unholy Quran handbook of hate

John R. Houk

© February 18, 2016

 

I have often been called bigoted against Islam. In many ways this is an accurate accusation, but not for the typical reasons associated with bigotry. The primary reason I disparage Islam is because its revered writings such as the Quran, Hadith and Sira target Christianity with stealth vitriol. Islam dualistically calls Jews and Christians as People of the Book as if that is a heritage to be respected. Then the truth emerges that Jews and Christians are only allowed to live if those adherents agree to submit to the supremacy of Islam followed by theopolitical condemnations of Jews and Christians. I cannot do justice to the Jew-hatred in the Quran, Hadith and Sira because I am a Christian.

 

However I am quite aware that Islam directly calls the central articles of faith in Christianity as fake or cruelly made up to defy the original will of God (Muslims call Allah), hence ultimately Christians must be dealt with as infidel (or Kafir or Kufr or Kuffar – however you find the disparaging appellation written by Muslims).

 

Some of those central Biblical articles of faith is that Jesus Christ is the Son of God as much as He is the son of Mary (more Biblically as the son of Man). This denies the entire premise of God the Father emptying himself of divine prerogatives to be born as a sinless man in order to Redeem all of humanity from the spiritual Fallen nature bequeathed to the descendants of Adam and Eve. Thus Jesus the Anointed One (Christ/Messiah) is the very incarnation of the ONE God. That perfect man would and did offer Himself as a sinless sacrifice under the sentence of an unjustified crime.

 

This comes to the other pathetic denial of Islam. Islamic revered writings also claim Jesus never died on the Cross but rather died of natural causes. ERGO according to Islam Jesus never arose from the dead a fully alive person after a Crucifixion.

 

The next Islamic denial was also quite controversial in the early days of the followers of Christ; viz. the Holy Trinity under the concept that Jesus as the incarnation of the Father in union with the Holy Spirit are three individual persons that exist as ONE God. In the early days of Christian faith Christian theologians struggled with the logic of the Three in ONE nature of God.

 

Was Jesus fully and man and fully God simultaneously? Was Jesus both fully man and fully God but two separate beings? Did the Holy Spirit proceed from Jesus or the Father or both? Whatever the theological differences on God’s nature you should notice all the theologians believed the existence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. TODAY the huge majority of Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox and Protestants follow the Three equal persons are in ONE God theology. Islam says only Allah exists and faith has no place for three in ONE.

 

I suspect there are more issues at variance between Christianity and Islam however what I have just share is good enough for me to believe Islam is an antichrist religion that exists as a Satanic challenge to the ONE true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And that the Quran’s rescripting of the Holy Bible is a load of antichrist Satanic gibberish.

 

With that in mind I’d like to share an article that I first read on my Prophecy Update email that actually links to an article by John McTernan on the Rapture Ready website.

The Koran vs. the Bible

 

By John McTernan

Date: Listed as “NEW” thus 2/2016

Rapture Ready


The Koran directly attacks Christianity.

 

The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Psalm 12:6

 

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

 

There is a move in the United States and the entire Western world to block anything from being said negatively against Islam. Exposing Islam and its doctrines that are contrary to Western culture is called Hate Speech. In both Europe and Canada , Christians have been heavily fined and threatened with jail for speaking negatively about Islam.

 

Telling the truth accurately means nothing, as it is classified as hate speech. There are forces working in the United States to also promote that speaking against Islam is hate speech. Islam is being packaged and sold to the West as a peaceful religion.

 

Based on this concept of speaking out about Islam being hate speech, an examination of the Koran shows this book itself is hate speech, specifically, against Christianity. The Bible was written 500 years before Muhammad and therefore has nothing to say about Islam. In fact, the Bible only directly condemns pagan worship. It has nothing directly to say about Hinduism or the other ancient Eastern religions. By doctrine and teachings, the Bible disagrees with the eastern religions, but it does not condemn them.

 

The Koran directly attacks the major doctrines of Christianity. The Christian faith has several key beliefs. The teaching that is unique to the Christian faith is that there is one God who eternally manifests Himself in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is known as the Godhead or the Blessed Trinity.

 

The second critical doctrine is that Jesus of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of God; therefore He is unique from everyone else. His Father was not human, but the holy God of Israel. The third key doctrine is that the Lord Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for man’s sin and then rose from the dead. There are other important doctrines, but these three really comprise the very heart of the Christian faith.

 

With this foundation, let us examine the Koran to see what it states about the fundamental doctrines of Christianity. A chapter in the Koran is referred to as Sura, so when reviewing the Koran the word Sura with numbers after it gives the location of the verse. I use the Koran online for research. This is found at: http://quod.lib.umich.edu/k/koran/index.html

The Blessed Holy Trinity:

 

The Koran clearly states that Christians lie when claiming God is in the form of a Trinity. These are strong words; however this is exactly what the Koran states. The Koran claims that the Lord Jesus is only an apostle and for Christians to desist from teaching the blessed Trinity. In this same Sura, the Koran denies the Lord Jesus is the Son of God.

 

In one Sura the Koran attacks the very heart of Christianity by denying the blessed Trinity and that the Lord Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. It calls Christians liars and demands that the preaching of the Trinity and Jesus being the Son of God stop. The Koran identifies Christians sometimes as “followers of the book,” but when they proclaim Christian doctrine, the Koran then calls them liars. Muhammad writes that it is acceptable to believe the Bible, but not Christian doctrine!

 

The Sura shows this:

 

Sura 4.171 O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium is only an apostle of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.

 

The Lord Jesus Is the Only Begotten Son of God

 

One of the central doctrines of Islam, as clearly presented in the Koran, is that God does not have a son. An exhaustive search of the Koran shows that in at least 11 Suras, the Koran states that God does not have a Son. This is clearly aimed at Christianity because no other faith claims that God has a literal Son. The Koran even states in Sura 9:30 that those that believe Allah has a son should be destroyed by Allah! The Koran is very clear that it was written to attack this Christian doctrine.

 

The following are the Suras claiming that God does not have a Son:

 

Sura 4.171 Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.

 

Sura 6.101 Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things.

 

Sura 9.30 And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths;they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

 

Sura 10.68 They say: Allah has taken a son (to Himself)! Glory be to Him: He is the Self-sufficient: His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth; you have no authority for this; do you say against Allah what you do not know?

 

Sura 17.111 And say: (All) praise is due to Allah, Who has not taken a son and Who has not a partner in the kingdom, and Who has not a helper to save Him from disgrace; and proclaim His greatness magnifying (Him).

 

Sura 18.4 And warn those who say: Allah has taken a son.

 

Sura 19.35 It beseems not Allah that He should take to Himself a son, glory to be Him; when He has decreed a matter He only says to it “Be,’ and it is.

 

Sura 19.88 And they say: The Beneficent God has taken (to Himself) a son. (91) That they ascribe a son to the Beneficent God. (92) And it is not worthy of the Beneficent God that He should take (to Himself) a son.

 

Sura 21.26 And they say: The Beneficent God has taken to Himself a son. Glory be to Him. Nay! they are honored servants.

 

Sura 23.91 Never did Allah take to Himself a son, and never was there with him any (other) god– in that case would each god have certainly taken away what he created, and some of them would certainly have overpowered others; glory be to Allah above what they describe!

 

Sura 25.2 He, Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and Who did not take to Himself a son, and Who has no associate in the kingdom, and Who created everything, then ordained for it a measure.

 

The Lord Jesus Died on the Cross

 

The Koran literally says the Lord Jesus did not die on the cross. It claims that He appeared to have died on the cross, but He was not killed nor was He crucified. Allah just took Jesus to heaven. The Koran directly attacks the vicarious death of Jesus of Nazareth on the cross, and thus rejects His redemption of man from sin. The Koran goes on to state that on the day of resurrection Jesus Christ will be a witness against Christians.

 

The Suras from the Koran prove this fact:

 

Sura 4.157 And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa [Jesus] son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure.

 

158 Nay! Allah took him up to Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

159 And there is not one of the followers of the Book but most certainly believes in this before his death, and on the day of resurrection he (Jesus) shall be a witness against them.

 

According to Islam the worst sin a person can commit is shirk. This sin is also called association. This means associating Allah with a man. The very heart of Christianity that the Lord is the Son of God is the worst sin in Islam! According to the Koran, Allah forbids heaven to anyone who commits this sin and their abode is hell without any help.

 

The Koran and Islam by their very nature are anti-Christian, and therefore in our modern world’s way of thinking, it is hate speech. There can never be reconciliation between Islam and Christianity because the very heart of Islam is anti-Christian.

 

The Sura that shows this:

 

Sura 5.72 Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah, He is the Messiah, son of Marium; and the Messiah said: O Children of Israel! serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Surely whoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be no helpers for the unjust.

 

The teachings of the Koran are in stark contrast to the Bible. The Koran states that God does not have a son. The Bible states that all life is in the Lord Jesus as the only begotten Son of God. With the Bible, if you have the Son, you have eternal life: if you do not have the Son, then you do not have eternal life.

 

A person that does not believe this makes God a liar. The Koran written 500 years after these verses denies the Son, and therefore makes the God of the Bible a liar. The Bible is written in the positive stating God has a Son. The Koran is written in the negative attacking this fundamental doctrine of Christianity.

 

When Muhammad wrote the Koran, he knew exactly what he was doing. He was creating a new religion which rivaled Christianity. He wanted to make sure there was no connection between the God of Islam and the holy God of Israel. The warning of the Bible is same today as it was at the time of Muhammad:

 

1 John 5:9-13: If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

 

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

The Bible ends with a warning to those who tamper with it and remove scriptures. The warning is that God will remove that person’s name from the Book of Life which means removal from eternity in heaven with God. Muhammad wrote the Koran as a replacement to the Bible. In the Koran, he removed the Bible’s core beliefs; therefore, Muhammad’s name and those that follow him are removed from heaven. To God, it is extremely serious to tamper with the Bible.

 

Revelation 22:19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

 

In summary, the God of Islam has no relationship to the God of the Bible. In fact, the God of Islam is at war with the Bible as the Koran calls anyone believing in the blessed Trinity a liar. The very origin of the Koran was to refute the authority of the Bible and reject the holy God of Israel. The Koran and Islam, at its very foundation, is hatred of Christianity, and therefore have no place in America. The Koran, as given by Muhammad, is hate speech and should be exposed as such.

 

Note: America was the only nation in all of history that was founded on the blessed holy Trinity. There were three documents which created the United States of America . Most people are very familiar with the first and third documents: The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution

 

It was the second document that ended the Revolutionary War and granted America[n] nationhood. The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783 formally ended the Revolution and granted the United States independence from Great Britain. This document can be found at:

http://www.law.ou.edu/hist/paris.html In a real sense, the United States formally became a nation on September 3, 1783.

 

When the United States became a nation, it was done “In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treaty states that it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means the United States was founded on the Christian faith. The Preamble is very short:

 

In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.”

 

The Treaty then ends just like the Constitution with a statement it is being signed in the “Year of our Lord.” The witnesses representing the United States were John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and D. Hartley:

 

“… In witness whereof we the undersigned, their ministers plenipotentiary, have in their name and in virtue of our full powers, signed with our hands the present definitive treaty and caused the seals of our arms to be affixed thereto. Done at Paris, this third day of September in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-three.”

The Reality of Islamic Legitimacy


Mohammed riding Buraq watches Red Demon tortures Shameless Women by their Breasts – Persia 15th Century

John R. Houk

© June 1, 2015

As an apologist for Islam the commenter aymedia (Ayad Amin) spins a refutation to the post “First Amendment Assaulted by Sharia in Garland TX”. Although my post was on May 4, 2015 aymedia’s comment was made on May 27, 2015.

Aymedia’s About Page on WordPress indicates his (perhaps her – not sure of language gender) focus is primarily on graphics design:

AYMEDIA; Think different and make a change.

YOUR BRAND in our vocabulary is not only about the visualization of your company’s values but rather a reflection of our unbound spirit and the search for perfection.

Ayad Amin, Graphic Designer

Ayad Amin’s defense of Islam indicates he is more than a graphics design entrepreneur but is also a devout Muslim although self-defined as a Moderate. I have to ask Ayad if his Islamic devotion considers the Quran to be the very words of Allah spoken from the lips of Mohammed to the ears of his followers.

Interspersed through Ayad Amin remarkably peaceful and even-toned comment are my thoughts in bold print.

I was fascinated by your analogy of Islam and its origins and future revival. I consider myself as a middle class well educated moderate Muslim. I find many of your conservative intakes on Islam and the Koran to be legitimate.

From my own cultural experience within the Islamic society, I found that there is a deep struggle within Muslims derived from the notion of competitiveness between the major religions of the book, Christianity and Judaism. Hence being the perfect believer of God or Allah is the ultimate goal.

Muslims inherently consider Islam as the truthful and legitimate continuity to its predecessors, Christianity and Judaism. Islam considers the 3 religions as one, but conveyed through multiple Apostles. Islam came to being due to the notion that both previous religions have failed in certain points and Islam shall restore the right path.

Blog Editor Thoughts: Muhammad al-Bukhari is the person as the author of the most reliable Hadith. Bukhari’s Hadith is considered by Muslims as second only to the Quran in authority. Al-Bukhari records this tradition about the Torah (Old Testament) of the Jews and the New Testament of Christians:

Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461:

Narrated Ubaidullah:

Ibn ‘Abbas said, “Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah’s Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, ‘It is from Allah,’ to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!” (Emphasis Mine – Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 92: Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement – USC)

The Quran is consider the words of the Muslim deity Allah spoken to Mohammed and eventually put on paper under a couple of Caliphs after some dispute about which Caliph’s Quran version was the best. Quran 4: 157-158 in three translations says this about Jesus Christ the Redeemer of humanity by His Blood:

4: 157

Sahih International

And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.

Muhsin Khan

And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]:

Pickthall

And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.

4: 158

Sahih International

Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.

Muhsin Khan

But Allah raised him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.

Pickthall

But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise.

So Mo told his followers that Jesus is not the Son of God but only the son of Mary, that Jesus never was Crucified to death, BUT that the Muslim deity took Jesus to heaven presumably before death. Ergo, when we Christians tell people (including Muslims) that Jesus was Crucified to death, placed in a tomb a dead man, but raised to life free from returning all the Divinity the Second Person of the Godhead gave up to be incarnated into Mary’s womb to be the perfect man to Redeem humankind from the fallen nature twisted in the first perfect man (Adam) whose human nature was twisted in rebellion to God Almighty. With no Blood there is no Redemption.

Here is the Good News according to the TRUE Word of God:

Christ’s Birth Announced to Mary – Luke 1

26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”[a]

29 But when she saw him,[b] she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

Luke 23

32 There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. 33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”[a]

And they divided His garments and cast lots.

44 Now it was[a] about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was darkened,[b] and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’”[c] Having said this, He breathed His last.

52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before.

Luke 24

He Is Risen

24 Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them,[a] came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. 2 But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.3 Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it happened, as they were greatly[b] perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’”

The Road to Emmaus

13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles[a] from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.

20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”

25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

30 Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.

33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

36 Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.”

46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise[a] from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. (Luke 1: 26-35; 23: 32-34, 44-46, 52-53; 24: 1-7, 13-16, 20-27, 30-31, 33, 36, 46-48 NKJV)

The only person killed here in this Good News is Jesus Christ the Son of God in Divinity and the son of Mary in humanity. BUT death had NO hold on a wrongfully killed perfect man and Jesus defeated Satan then took the keys of hell and of death and the power of the Father Resurrected Jesus bodily yet in a Glorified body. With the Blood shed on Calvary on the Cross, Jesus Christ Redeems all who Believe on the Risen Christ.

7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 8 Therefore He says:

“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
And gave gifts to men.”[a]

9 (Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first[b]descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) (Ephesians 4: 7-10 NKJV)

13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[a] the forgiveness of sins.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled (Colossians 1: 13-21 NKJV)

5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11 NKJV)

45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”[a] The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.47 The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord[b]from heaven. 48 As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear[c] the image of the heavenly Man. (1 Corinthians 15: 45-49 NKJV)

17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,[a] “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. (Revelation 1: 17-18 NKJV)

The greatest controversy is yet to come. Although Islam considers prior religions as rivals, hence they are the ONLY source of legitimacy to this new religion and so without them, Islam would have never saw the light.

Blog Editor: Ayad I understand you are trying to sell me on the Islam is peace concept in a civil manner. The thing is I don’t buy it. The Holy Scriptures of the Bible were written long before Mo was born. It is no controversy that God Himself through the Holy Spirit inspired men to prophesy the will of God which became recorded as Scriptures over thousands of years. Mohammed heard recite from an Angel – allegedly Gabriel – only in the span of Mohammed’s adult life. Granted those Mecca messages peaceful and tolerant; however the recitations Mohammed received from his Medina days onward followed by a life aggression, butchery, booty, sex-slaves and an evolved hatred of Jews and Christians are the works of an insane despot with military cult powers. Islam was born in the darkness and the only light it had in Mecca was wholly extinguished in the darkness of Medina thus illustrating an actual corrupt derivation.

12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast. 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:12-15 NKJV)

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matthew 24:23-27 NKJV)

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2: 18-19, 22-23 NKJV)

It is clear as you mentioned in “The 6 Major beliefs of Islam, according to the Quran and Muslim tradition: Belief in the revealed books” which are the “Bible” and “Torah”. So for a Muslim, you are obligated to believe in these two books in order to be a true Muslim. If you go back to the beginnings of Islam. One will find great compassionate and brotherly references to the “people of the book”. Especially during the years of the prophet Mohammed and the 4 Rashidoon Khalifas.

Blog Editor: You see Ayad that is simply not true. Muslims may believe the Torah and the Bible are revealed, but the Quran commands Muslims to not trust those two revealed books because the Jews and Christians have corrupted them. The existence of a corrupted Bible is not true. The Bible warns us about false prophets who come around discounting and twisting God’s Word and promoting words that either add or say something different.

The Koraan clearly defines Jesus, Mary (divine virgin though not a prophet) and Moses as divine Apostles. I have never encountered a single Muslim in my life who would dare to insult those specific prophets. Islam specifically prohibits insulting any nabi or rasool of the Jewish or Christian faiths. To this day, it is a common cultural and religious practice by Muslims to visit the tombs of all Christian and Jewish prophets or Apostles in countries like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Egypt, Jordan and Israel.

Whenever a Muslim denies that Christ is the Son of God that died on the Cross out of love to Redeem a humanity separated from God through Adam’s selfish choices that favored Satan – That Muslim has insulted Christians.

Whenever a Muslim denies Abraham’s son through Sarah – Isaac – is the son of Promise not Ishmael the son of Abraham through the slave Egyptian girl Hagar – that Muslim has insulted Jews.

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.

9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing. 10 Therefore she said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.” 11 And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham’s sight because of his son.

12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. 13 Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman, because he is your seed.”

14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water; and putting it on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.

22 Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

2 Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

3 So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.

6 So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together. 7 But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!”

And he said, “Here I am, my son.”

Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”

8 And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.

9 Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

11 But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

So he said, “Here I am.”

12 And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Emphasis is Mine – Genesis 21: 1-3, 9-14; 22: 1-3, 6-12, 15-18 NKJV)

CLEARLY God Almighty is referring to Abraham’s seed through Isaac as indicated by the clause that reads “because you have obeyed my voice.”

Prophet Mohammed’s wife Khadija, was a Nestorian [Blog Editor: Christians that believed that Jesus was of two separate persons; viz. “the man Jesus and the divine Son of God, rather than as a unified person.” Most Christians believe Jesus is One unified person as fully God and fully man]. The first writer of Koraan, Waraqa-ibn-Nawfal, his brother in law, was a Nestorian. Omar-bin-Khatab, the second Khalifa after P[rophet] Mohammed, when visiting Jerusalem after conquering the Holy Land, said “I will not pray inside your church, Only because when I die, people may convert it into a mosque”.

The major divergence in the path of Islam only happened after the end of the Rashidoon Khalifas [or Rashidun Caliphate or the first four Rightly Guided Caliphs]. Everything changed in the sense of moderate Islam. The long struggle for power, conquests and wealth of the new lands, had scarred Islamic practice entirely. The long political struggle with the Christian Byzantine Empire was a terminal factor for the Christian faith inside the Muslim lands. And this struggle continued by the not-so-famous Ottoman Empire with its ambitions towards Europe. And this particular ugly Image of Islam which was portrayed in Europe for centuries to follow to this day.

Although I am proud to be a Muslim. Still, I truly believe, and backed by historic evidences, that without the major role of Christianity and Judaism and their scholars and contributions to civil society of Islam, Islam was never to be an empire. If Islam was to stay within the boundaries of the Arabian Desert and had not reached the outposts of the Christian civilization in North Africa, Syria, the Holy land, Mesopotamia and Persia, it would not have continued to this day.

My conclusion is that the tolerance of true Islam to the “people of the book” was behind its survival and this is the irony.

Blog Editor: The “true Islam to the ‘people of the book’” is represented by the actions that every devout Muslim believes is the so-called Prophet Mohammed. How tolerant was Mohammed after fleeing to Medina evolved into domination and conquest of the Arabia Peninsula?

Muhammad’s Actions

Now, from the Muslim perspective using their own writings, let us examine in more detail some specific actions that Muhammad ordered. There are more incidents we could reference (see Appendix B), but for the sake of time and space we have to limit the amount of detailed information. This additional material is presented to facilitate honest evaluation and judgment of Muhammad himself, because it is only by his actions that he can and should be judged.

The following 14 events and incidents (occurring in the last years of Muhammad’s life) will be examined:

1) The killing of Abu Afak.

2) The killing of Asma Marwan.

3) Attack upon the Banu Qaynuqa Jews.

4) The killing of Kab Ashraf.

5) The killing of Abu Rafi.

6) The killing of Ibn Sunayna.

7) Attack against the Banu Nadir Jews.

8) The killing of the Shepherd.

9) Massacre of the Qurayza Jews.

10) The torture killing of Kinana.

11) The killing of a slave Wife and Mother.

12) The slaying of an old woman from Fazara.

13) The killing of Abdullah Khatal and his Daughter.

14) The attack upon Tabuk.

The details of 1-14 can be read at the WikiIslam article (Islam Undressed: Muhammad’s Actions, Speaking Louder than Words; By Vernon Richards; WikiIslam; last modified 12/21/12 09:22 by Sahab.)

Insulting Islam is a GREAT 1st Amendment Right

Chris Matthews said that the Texas incident was a mousetrap for terrorism, and that event organizers crossed a line. The Trifecta Gang rips this apart.
 
Insulting Islam is a GREAT 1st Amendment Right
John R. Houk
© May 7, 2015
 
On May 4th I posted on the attack by a couple of Muslims dedicated to Sharia Law and thus felt obligated to shoot up a Muslim Cartoon Contest (officially: Muhammad Art Exhibit) in Garland Texas. Amidst all the details I was aware of only one shooter’s name – Elton Simpson. I have since discovered that Simpson’s buddy was Nadir Soofi who also was born in the USA.
 
I mentioned in that May 4 post that the American Left and Muslim apologists (See Also Hot Air) lambasted Pamela Geller as the primary organizer of the Muhammad Art Exhibit held at Curtis Culwell Center located at Garland TX. In listening to my favorite Conservative source Fox News, I began to realize that a large amount of Conservatives are also throwing Ms. Geller under the bus. (See Also American Thinker)
 
Now I realize Ms. Geller is a bit brassy in her communication skills but I always attributed that to the NYC culture her accent intoned. I was a member of the dreaded telemarketing industry for a number of years where I discovered calling people in NYC was a bit challenging. Even New Yorkers trying to be polite had a tendency toward a bit of harsh language.
 
In my opinion Geller’s brassiness makes her a target of uncomplimentary remarks about her political stands and her Counterjihad activism. Add this to the fact Geller is on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hit list of venom against Biblical Christians, Conservatives and Counterjihadists. If you are a member of any of those groups the SPLC will label you a racist. Leftists and Muslim Apologists love to use the SPLC as a source in denigrating Pamela Geller.
 
Evidently people all across the political and religious spectrum that support Free Speech are accusing Geller of crude incitement inviting violence to come her way and against all those that share Geller’s sentiments about Islam. So the question is: Does exposing the vile nature of a self-described religion with writings considered holy by that religion’s adherents which calls to hate non-members even to kill them if they don’t submit, incitement to commit violence and murder?
 
One thing I have wrestled with on a personal level as a Born Again Charismatic Christian Right kind-of-guy is how to get along with adherents of Islam who consider the Quran the divine revealed word of Allah. Islam’s history against Christianity is much more horrific than Christianity’s history against Islam. From the time Islam came into existence under the direction of Mohammed, Muslims have conquered Christian lands which included raping, pillaging, stealing, enslavement and forced cultural submission or death. Christianity’s horrific history against Muslims was horribly violent and often times led to Muslim deaths; however the Christian heinous acts against Muslims for the few hundred years that were the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. BUT even with the indictment of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition those originated from the brutal assaults by Muslim invaders and the retaking of Christian lands stolen by Muslims. AND YET Muslims are still attacking and slaughtering Christians in horrific manners in the 21st century. So what am I wrestling with such hypocrisy from Muslims that do acts of violence for just insulting Mo and Allah in harmless ways?
 
Unlike Mo, Jesus Christ the Son of God tells Believers to turn the other cheek when stricken:
 
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
 
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,[b] 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (Matthew 5: 38-39, 43-45 NKJV)
 
Mo told his believer to kill the unbelievers (kafir) until they submit or die:
 
Sahih International
Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
 
Muhsin Khan
Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
 
Yusuf Ali
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Quran 9:29 [3 English Translations])
 
On the other hand Jesus did not tolerate hypocrisy:
 
13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” (John 2: 13-16 NKJV)
 
 
 
It was the height of hypocrisy that the Chief Priests allowed the Temple Court to be a money-making enterprise rather than a placed of devotion to God Almighty. It is also the height of hypocrisy in Islam to place such a high pedestal of adoration for the same man who had a revelation of a merciful Allah in Mecca then transformed into a murderous, pillaging, sex-slaving head of an organized military operation using a merciful Allah as an excuse to impose Mo’s will first on Arab polytheists, then Jews and then planting a vision against Christians.
 
Mohammed organized a religion that is specifically an antichrist religion that attacks the very essence of who Jesus Christ is as the resurrected fully human as the son of Mary and fully God as the Son of God the Father who died and rose again to give humanity an opportunity to end its rebellious nature established under Adam’s sell-out and re-embrace Life in the Presence of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
 
For this reason I have no problem with Pamela Geller and like-minded people organizing an essentially peaceful protest against a religion that advocates killing non-Muslims for refusing to submit to Allah and the set of rules of submission derived from the Quran, Hadith and Sira. My God! In a Muslim dominated nation if a Christian demands that Muslims respect his beliefs that Jesus is the Son of God who died on the Cross and Arose again to life, that Christian will be killed either on the spot by an enraged mob or via a Sharia legal system that tells Christians that such beliefs are blasphemy to Mo and Allah. Condemning Pamela Geller for poking fun at the reality of Mohammed’s insane intolerance and hatred is idiotic in comparison to the suffering Christians experience for simply being faithful!  
 
With that in mind I received an interesting email from DefendChristians.org’s Dr. Gary L. Cass that tells Americans not to blame the victims of the object of Muslim intolerance but rather blame the religion Islam for its inherent violence promoted by its considered holy writings. Unfortunately Dr. Cass did not specifically stick up for Pamela Geller as an organizer but he does stick up for the intended victims of the Mohammed Cartoon Contest.
 
Before proceeding to Dr. Cass allow me to leave you with a paraphrased from memory quote from Robert O’Neil a retired Navy SEAL involved in taking out Osama bin Laden:
 
“Two Muslims came to Garland to stop the First Amendment and met Texans armed with the Second Amendment”. (I wish I could remember the exact wording so I have to admit to a paraphrase which I heard sometime on May 6th on the Fox News channel.)

On Sunday two Muslim-Americans were shot and killed after they opened fire on a group in Dallas, Texas viewing an exhibition of cartoon depictions of the Prophet Mohammed. Thankfully the security was armed and ready and responded immediately to protect the innocent bystanders.
 
Now, The Islamic State (ISIS) is claiming responsibility for the attack and threatening more. When he was alive, insecure Mohammed had two people assassinated for writing satirical poems about him. ISIS are simply following the murderous Mohammed’s example.
 
But blasphemy is a sin that can only be directed towards God. Mohammed was not God, therefore there is no blasphemy in depicting him.
 
Not to be outdone, the liberal media is placing the blame on the exhibition viewers. According to the politically correct liberals, drawing Mohammed makes you a bully. The truth about Islam continues to be underplayed and reduced to random extremists. The reality is that these “extremists” are simply following the example of their leader, Mohammed.

We are seeing the ugly specter of Islam as it follows the murderous example of their “prophet” Mohammed in its violent march to dominate the world by the sword of Allah. Just this past few days we’ve witnessed Muslims throwing Christians refugees overboard in the Mediterranean Sea to drown, or murdering 30 Christian men in Ethiopia, the persecution goes on unabated.
 
For years we’ve documented the wholesale murder of Christians by Muslims across the world and now the world is starting to awaken. This week Franklin Graham called what ISIS in the Middle East and Boko Harem in Nigeria are doing a holocaust of Christians. Even the Pope is speaking out.
 
Just last month in March, there have been 244 documented Jihad attacks in 25 countries with 38 suicide bombings that killed 1,975 and critically injured 2,076. For the record, the number of bombings by Baptists in the same period- 0, the same for Presbyterians, Lutherans and Catholics.

With all the horrific news coming out around the world about Islamic violence against Christians, Jews and even other Muslims, I’m grateful more ministers are speaking out. As those commissioned to bear witness to the truth, we need to be biblically bold and accurate. Some of the things that are being said are true as far as they go, but they don’t tell the whole story.
 
One minister recently pointed out that Mohammed is dead and buried in Medina, but that Jesus is risen from the dead. The question is asked, “Who do you want to follow, the living Christ or dead Mohammed.” This is true and yet might be a bit biblically confusing.
 
CHRIST MUST BE ALIVE OR ELSE
 
 
Christ’s resurrection is not a peripheral doctrine you can take or leave and still be considered a Christian. It is so essential to our faith that without it, according the New Testament itself, Christianity is worthless. “And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins.” I Corinthians 15:17.  
 
 
I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE MOHAMMED
 
Mohammed is very much alive. He did not cease to exist upon physical death, nor is he in his imaginary celestial brothel. He is NOT experiencing the unspeakable and unimaginable joys of eternal life in heaven with Christ, rather he is suffering in the unspeakable and unimaginable torments of eternal death.
  
Mohammed, like all mortal men, is accountable to God. Sadly for Mohammed, his legacy is that of being Christ’s sworn enemy.  Mohammed has READ THE REST

I confess, I’m “Islamaphobic,” but for very good reasons.
 
My fear is not an irrational fear based on uniformed prejudice; rather it’s an historic, clear eyed, informed, rational fear. ISSA is doing to America journalists what every true follower of Mohammed wants to do to you and yours; subjugate or murder you. They believe they have been given a mandate by Allah (Satan) to dominate the world.
 
Fourteen hundred years of history, both ancient and modern (i.e. the 1 to 1.5 million dead Armenians at the hands of the Muslim Turks in 1915) tell us that Muslims are deadly serious about their infernal goals. Now we get to watch their violent, demonic fanaticism on Youtube videos.
 
History shows where Muslims get the power and means to subjugate and behead Christians, Jews, et al, they do it. Why? It’s really very simple: its what Mohammed did and taught. So READ THE REST
 
Dr. Cass Explains his Islamophobia
 
DefendChristians.org Commentary
9/9/14
 
 
In my article, “I’m Islamaphobic, Are You?,” I advocated for the right and duty of Christians to defend themselves against the vicious attacks of Islam. To some I am a prophet, to others a heretic that ought to be brought up on charges.
 
Some of the criticisms are from the usual suspects, like the totally discredited liberal activists from the Southern Poverty Law Center. They will always twist and take what I say in the worst possible way. That’s to be expected and taken with a huge grain of salt.
 
Other concerns come from sincere people with honest questions. So, here’s an attempt at “splainin” my position to my fellow Christians and friends. I don’t expect people who are not constrained by the authority of God’s Word to care or agree. …
 
 
“Phobia” means fear. It is a tactic of the advocates of political correctness to demonize people by calling them a “homophobe,” “xenophobe,” etc. as if just calling the opponents a name ending in “phobe” defines them as irrational or prejudiced.
 
 
A true follower of Mohammed is one who takes what Mohammed did and taught seriously, just as a sincere follower of Christ takes Christ’s example and words seriously. Mohammed declared that it was Allah’s will for Muslims to rule the world and subjugate all non-Muslims. They are to accomplish this not simply by an appeal to hearts and minds, as Christianity ought to grow, but by the sword of Allah, or Jihad.
 
Allah is not the God of the Bible. Anyone who says we worship the same God is simply wrong or intentionally deceitful. Christians confess there is READ THE REST

Dajjal and I are both Politically Incorrect


 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali quote on true Islam

 

John R. Houk

© January 7, 2015

 

Dajjal (in a nice way for my old online buddy) makes his case for his stand that Muslims should be obliterated since I somewhat disagreed with him in the post, “Save Western Civ. With Total Unconditional Victory”.

 

For clarity’s sake my stand was against obliteration and for a WWII style war until there is an Unconditional Surrender of Muslim dominated areas and then use a harsh form of despotism to retrain the minds of Muslims away from the Quranic teachings of Islamic Supremacism by any means. I should have gone further.

 

Muslim conquerors transformed the lands they conquered (primarily Christian and Hindu but others too) and forced the suppression of non-Muslim religions to amend their practice to not insult or contradict Islam. The penalty for refusing the rules of Islam for non-Muslims was death. Those that did submit were treated like scum with frequent humiliating and sometime violent circumstances to be endured. After hundreds of years in the conquered Christian areas, the former majority chose Islam rather than the debilitating life of a non-Muslim Christian.

 

My idea of despotism was the same treatment of Muslims that Muslim rulers and armies did to their conquered. I am certain the politically correct crowd would link my thoughts as almost as bad as Dajjal’s obliteration solution. I have reached the point of “I don’t care anymore”. The ideology spewed by the Quran, Hadith and Sira are inherently evil in respect to non-Muslims.

 

The Western World has developed a secularist mentality toward religion which appears to me to actively diminish the Christian faith. BUT my fellow Christians you should know this about Islam. The Islamic religion’s revered writings deny the centrality of your Christian faith. Specifically Islam denies Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that the Lord was Crucified and that He arose bodily after three days in a tomb to sit at the Right Hand of the Father. For that matter denies that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is ONE God manifested as three persons. We Christians call that the Trinity. Muslims call it polytheism. In a Muslim dominated nation if you stand up for Christianity being Truth, you would be guilty of blasphemy which could lead the State to sentence you to death. If a Muslim nation does not officially sanction the Quranic punishment for offending Islam with Christian truth it is likely the authorities will look the other way as Muslims take the law into their own hands and slay you for blasphemy.

 

Ergo, even if Islam were actually a religion of peace (which it isn’t) it would still be a specifically antichrist religion.

Dajjal Comments to: ‘Save Western Civ. With Total Unconditional Victory’

This is why total victory must lead to total political authority even if political despotism is used harshly in unWestern-like ways.” -John R. Houk 2/6/15

 

The Crusaders made a fatal error: they neglected to eradicate Islam in the territory they conquered.

 

The US Navy made a fatal error in the Barbary Wars: they neglected to eradicate Islam from Libya & Morocco.

 

The colonizing powers made a fatal error in the lands they colonized: they neglected to eradicate Islam from them.

 

Shrub made a fatal error in Afghanistan & Iraq. Can you guess what it was?

 

In an existential conflict, victory consists of the total extinction of the aggressor. Anything short of total eradication is less than victory, ensuring eventual defeat.

 

When fighting a grass fire, you first suppress the fire, then you cool and rake the hot spots so there is no ignition source to rekindle the fire after you leave. The same strategy must be used in fighting Islam.

 

You cannot defeat Islam without destroying their Iman [***] or their lives. They must cease believing in Allah, his imperatives, threat and promise or they must cease drawing breath. A little fire left behind will rekindle and spread. Put it all out!

 

[***Blog Editor: I am never sure if Dajjal means “Iman” or “Iman” with this word. He did provide me an explanation once but sadly I don’t remember what that explanation was.

 

Most understand that an “Imam” is an Islamic religious leader.

 

I think though that Dajjal is actually referring to “Iman” in the context of this sentence. This is the meaning of “Iman” from what I could discover:

 

The Six articles of Islamic faith

 

Iman is generally outlined using the six articles of faith:

 

1.       Belief in Allah

 

2.      Belief in the Angels

 

3.     Belief in Divine Books

 

4.     Belief in the Prophets

 

5.      Belief in the Day of Judgment        

 

6.     Belief in Allah’s predestination

 

Of these, the first five are mentioned together in the Qur’an[9] and by  Muhammad, while including a corollary of belief in Allah – the good and evil of fate ordained by God – has referred to all six together in the following manner in the Hadith of Gabriel:

 

“Iman is that you believe in God and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Hereafter and the good and evil fate [ordained by your God].”[10]

 

Another similar narration ascribed to Muhammad is:

 

Ibn Abbas narrates that the Angel Jibril once asked the Prophet: “Tell me what is Iman?” The Prophet replied: “Iman is to believe in Allah, the Day of Judgment, His (Allah’s) Angels, Books and Prophets and to believe in life after death; and to believe in Paradise and the Fire, and the setting up of the Mizan (scales) to weigh the deeds; and to believe in the Divine Decree, the good and the bad of it (all). Jibril then asked him: “If I do all this will I be with Iman?” The Prophet said: “When you have done all of this, you will be having Iman.”[11]

 

It is also assumed that the essential Iman consists of the first 3 items (Belief in God, Prophets, and the Hereafter).[12] (The Six articles of Islamic faith; Wikipedia; This page was last modified on 31 January 2015, at 07:48)]

In the case of Islam a little forced reformation is in order to change Mo’s ideology into something closer resembling a Judeo-Christian heritage.” –John R. Houk 2/6/15

 

“None can change his words.” “No change let there be…” Islam cannot be reformed internally or externally. Mission impossible!

Islam Is Demonic


 

Demonized Mo - D.T. Devareaux

Dajjal explores the concept that Mohammed was demonized or demonic. Since it is my firm belief that Islam is a specifically an antichrist religion I concur that there was some kind of demon activity in Mo’s life. Dajjal provides the facts.

Islam Is Demonic

 

Dajjal

Nov 2, 2014 at 8:36 PM

 

[Dajjal Editor: Originally posted to FB, now updated with typos and spelling fixed, plus another quote from Ishaq. Please reblog this. 

Snooper’s blog – Freedom Ain’t Free and Take our Country: Islam: Divine or Demonic?]

 

You will not frequently find an assertion so well proven from Islam’s canonical texts. Taken together, the quotes used in this post expose the true identity of Allah and character of his Profit.

Unlike my usual rants, this post is entirely free of profanity and obscenity. 

This post exhibits evidence proving beyond reasonable doubt that:

 

·         Muhammad, aka. Moe had a devil

 

·         Moe was demon possessed

 

·         Allah is Satan.

   

The evidence is found in the canonical texts of Islam: Qur’an, hadith & Sira which are quoted and linked so that you can verify the quotes and examine their context. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

 

When Moe had his hallucination in the cave at Hira, he feared for his probity and sanity. There is some interesting information in Abu ‘Abd Allah Muhammad Ibn Sa’d Ibn Mani’ al-Zuhri al-Basrí KITAB AL-TABAQAT AL-KABIR.

Moe reported strange perceptions and feared he was becoming a sooth-sayer.

 

Moe: Insane

 

Volume 1, Parts 1.45.4
http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.1.45.4

‘Affan Ibn Muslim informed us: Hammad Ibn Salamah informed us on the authority of Hisham Ibn ‘Urwah, he on the authority of ‘Urwah: Verily, the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said:

0 Khadijah, I see light and hear sounds and I fear I shall be a sooth-sayer. She said:

Verily, Allah will not do it with you, 0 son of `Abd Allah. Verily, you speak the truth, return things entrusted to you and fulfil (obligations of) relationship.

He feared that he was losing his sanity.

 

Volume 1, Parts 1.45.5
http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.1.45.5

Yahya 1bn Abbad and `Affan Ibn Muslim informed us; they said: Hammad Ibn Salamah informed us; he said: Ammar Ibn Abi `Ammar informed us; (variation) Yahya Ibn `Abbád (only) said: Hammad Ibn Salamah said: I think (he narrated) on the authority of Ibn `Abbas:

Verily, the Prophet, may Allah bless him, said: O Khadijah I hear sounds and see light and I fear I am mad. She said: 0 son of `Abd Allah! Allah will not do it with you. Then she approached Waraqah Ibn Nawfal and related (the incident) to him. He said: If he is true, then he is nomos as in the case of Moses. If I am alive, when he is commissioned (to prophethood) I shall support him, help him and believe in him.

 

Moe Was Suicidal

   

When the revelations were interrupted for a time, Moe became suicidal, intending to throw himself from a peak.

 

Volume 1, Parts 1.46.3
http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.1.46.3

Muhammad Ibn `Umar informed us; he said: Ibrahim [P. 131] lbn Muhammad lbn Abi Musa related to me on the authority of Dawud Ibn al-Husayn, he on the authority of Ibn Ghatfan Ibn Tarif, he on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas:

Verily, after the first revelation to the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, that came at Hira, it (the coming of revelations) remained suspended for a few days; since he did not see Gabriel, he was much grieved; he went to Thabir and at another time to Hïra with the intention of throwing himself down. When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, was intending to do this from one of these mountains he heard a sound coming from the heaven. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, paused for a moment because of the thunderous sound, then he raised his head and lo! it was Gabriel seated in a chair between the earth and the sky. He was saying: 0 Muhammad! Thou art surely the Apostle of Allah, and I am Gabriel. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, returned, and Allah had cooled his eye and strengthened his heart; then revelations followed one after the other.

 

Is Jibrael An Angel?

  

 Concerning Jibrael, how many wings do angels have?

 

35:1. All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, the (only) Originator [or the (only) Creator] of the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels messengers with wings, – two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Verily, Allâh is Able to do all things. http://www.islamawakened.com/quran/35/1/default.htm

 

Consider for a moment the consequence of an odd number of wings: imbalance. Controlled, stable flight would be difficult. How many wings does Jibrael have?

 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 455:
http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/bukhari/004.054.455.html

Narrated Abu Ishaq-Ash-Shaibani:

I asked Zir bin Hubaish regarding the Statement of Allah: “And was at a distance Of but two bow-lengths Or (even) nearer; So did (Allah) convey The Inspiration to His slave (Gabriel) and then he (Gabriel) Conveyed (that to Muhammad). (53.9-10) On that, Zir said, “Ibn Mas’ud informed us that the Prophet had seen Gabriel having 600 wings.”

 

Was Jibrael Real?

   

Angels have 2, 3 or 4 wings, but Jibrael had 600. Is Jibil really a divine angel?  Was Jibrael objective or subjective, did others see him or was Moe the only one?

 

Sahih Muslim Book 031, Number 5997:
http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/031.5997.html
‘A’isha, the wife of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him), reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: ‘A’isha, here is Gabriel offering you greetings. She said: 1 made a reply: Let there be peace and blessings of Allah upon him, and added: He sees what I do not see.

 

Revelations

   

How did Moe receive his revelations?  In dreams, a voice or a bell.  A dream could be spontaneous or divinely or demoniacally inspired. Hearing a disembodied voice or an invisible friend could be auditory hallucination. What of the bell?

 

Hell’s Bell

   

Prior to the invention of Morse Code, the bell could not communicate complex information.  The bell is mentioned in hadith as Satan’s musical instrument, accompanied by a devil and repellent to angels.  How then is it possible that Jibrael, averse to bells, communicated Allah’s revelations through the musical instrument of Satan?  The revelations must be demonic, not divine.

 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 1, Number 2:
http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/bukhari/001.001.002.html

Narrated ‘Aisha:

(the mother of the faithful believers) Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah’s Apostle “O Allah’s Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes ‘ off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.” ‘Aisha added: Verily I saw the Prophet being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the Sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).

 

Sahihy Muslim Book 024, Number 5277:
http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/024.5277.html

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Angels do not accompany the travellers who have with them a dog and a bell.

 

 

Sahih Muslim Book 024, Number 5279:
http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/024.5279.html

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The bell is the musical instrument of the Satan.

 

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 34, Number 4218:
Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab:

Ibn az-Zubayr told that a woman client of theirs took az-Zubayr’s daughter to Umar ibn al-Khattab wearing bells on her legs. Umar cut them off and said that he had heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: There is a devil along with each bell.

 

Denial

   

Moe’s critics among the disbelievers said that he was a mad poet or sorcerer. Allah mentions them in the Qur’an.  Why did Allah see a need to raise the issue in his revelation?

 

http://www.islamawakened.com/quran/10/2/default.htm
10:2. Is it wonder for mankind that We have sent Our Inspiration to a man from among themselves (i.e. Prophet Muhammad ) (saying): “Warn mankind (of the coming torment in Hell), and give good news to those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh and in His Prophet Muhammad ) that they shall have with their Lord the rewards of their good deeds?” (But) the disbelievers say: “This is indeed an evident sorcerer (i.e. Prophet Muhammad and the Qur’ân)!

 

http://www.islamawakened.com/quran/21/112/default.htm
21:112. He (Muhammad) said: “My Lord! Judge You in truth! Our Lord is the Most Beneficent, Whose Help is to be sought against that which you attribute (unto Allâh that He has offspring, and unto Muhammad that he is a sorcerer, and unto the Qur’ân that it is poetry, etc.)!”

 

http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/069-qmt.php#069.040

 

69:40. That this is verily the word of an honoured Messenger [i.e. Jibrael (Gabriel) or Muhammad which he has brought from Allâh].

 

69:41. It is not the word of a poet, little is that you believe!

 

69:42. Nor is it the word of a soothsayer (or a foreteller), little is that you remember!

 

69:43. This is the Revelation sent down from the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

 

69:44. And if he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning Us (Allâh),

 

69:45. We surely should have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might),

 

69:46. And then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta),

 

69:47. And none of you could withhold Us from (punishing) him.

 

http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/081-qmt.php#081.022

81:22. And (O people) your companion (Muhammad is not a madman;

81:23. And indeed he (Muhammad  saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] in the clear horizon (towards the east).

81:24. And he (Muhammad withholds not a knowledge of the unseen.

81:25. And it (the Qur’ân) is not the word of the outcast Shaitân (Satan).

 

Possessed

   

Was Moe demon possessed? Is there any evidence in the Qur’an or hadith?  Moe’s aunt had a clue.  His foster mother, Halima thought he was.

 

Your Lord = Your Satan!

 

http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/bukhari/006.060.475.html
Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 475:

Narrated Jundub bin Sufyan:

Once Allah’s Apostle became sick and could not offer his night prayer (Tahajjud) for two or three nights. Then a lady (the wife of Abu Lahab) came and said, “O Muhammad! I think that your Satan has forsaken you, for I have not seen him with you for two or three nights!” On that Allah revealed:

‘By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens, your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither forsaken you, nor hated you.’ (93.1-3)

Aisha’s devil made her jealous of Moe but Moe was safe from his devil.

 

http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/039.6759.html

 

Sahih Muslim Book 039, Number 6759:

 

A’isha the wife of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him), reported that one day Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) came out of her (apartment) during the night and she felt jealous. Then he came and he saw me (in what agitated state of mind) I was. He said: A’isha, what has happened to you? Do you feel jealous? Thereupon she said: How can it he (that a woman like me) should not feel jealous in regard to a husband like you. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: It was your devil who had come to you, and she said: Allah’s Messenger, is there along with me a devil? He said: Yes. I said: Is devil attached to everyone? He said: Yes. I (Aisha) again said: Allah’s Messenger, is it with you also? He said: Yes, but my Lord has helped me against him and as such I am absolutely safe from his mischief.

  

Moe had a devil who only gave him good commands!

 

http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/039.6757.html
Sahih Muslim Book 039, Number 6757

:

Abdullah b. Mas’ud reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah’s Messenger, with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.

 

To whom did Moe pray, and what did he pray for?  Moe preyed upon weaker people, as at Badr, where he supposed that Allah would give him the Meccan caravan as a prey. Read about it in “The Life of Muhammad” on page 289.

Moe prayed for the conquest of the wealthiest fort at Khaybar for the provision of his destitute companions. Ishaq reveals it on page 512.

Full comprehension of the Ishaq quote which follows requires having Surah Al-Anfal 8.67 fresh in mind. Moe wanted “the good of this world” meaning extortion & plunder.

 

http://www.islamawakened.com/quran/8/67/default.htm
8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

When we open “The Life of Muhammad” to page 510 beginning with the last paragraph, continuing through the first paragraph on 511, we learn that before every ghazwat, Moe prayed to the “Lord of the devils” for the worldly goods of the town and its people to be delivered into his hands.

 

‘0 God, Lord of the heavens and what they o’ershadow
And Lord of the lands and what they make to grow
And Lord of the devils and what into error they throw
And Lord of the winds and what they winnow,
we ask Thee for the good of this town and the good of its people and the good of what is in it, and we take refuge in Thee from its evil end the evil of Its people and the evil that is in it. Forward m the name of Allah’ He used to say that of every town he entered.

Allah: Lord of the Devils

   

Who is lord of the devils but Satan?  That is who Moe directed his salat to and he prayed for plunder and protection from possible counter attack. 

Can you connect the dots? Moe had a devil who only gave him good commands and he prayed to the lord of the devils.   He received revelations through Satan’s musical instrument, which repels angels and is accompanied by a devil.  On mention of Moe’s devil deserting him, Allah revealed a new verse denying it. Allah has another clue for you.

22:52. Never did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but; when he did recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitân (Satan) threw (some falsehood) in it. But Allâh abolishes that which Shaitân (Satan) throws in. Then Allâh establishes His Revelations. And Allâh is All-Knower, All-Wise:

22:53. That He (Allâh) may make what is thrown in by Shaitân (Satan) a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy and disbelief) and whose hearts are hardened. And certainly, the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) are in an opposition far-off (from the truth against Allâh’s Messenger and the believers).

 

Do you see the contradiction between those two verses?  Allah lets Satan introduce falsehood but Allah abolishes it… as a trial for the hypocrites and disbelievers.  What did Satan throw in? What did Allah abolish?  How was any disbeliever to know about it after Allah abrogated it??

 

http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/053-qmt.php#053.019
53:19. Have you then considered Al-Lât, and Al-‘Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs)

53:20. And Manât (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?

53:21. Is it for you the males and for Him the females?

53:22. That indeed is a division most unfair!

53:23. They are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allâh has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!

53:24. Or shall man have what he wishes?

53:25. But to Allâh belongs the last (Hereafter) and the first (the world).

 

Satanic Verses

   

Why did Allah need to abolish intercession by his daughters???  The Satanic Verses begin on page 165 of Ishaq.

Ibn Sa’d, Tabari and Muir follow Ishaq. It is easier to select text from Ibn Sa’d, so I quote from “Kitab al Tabaqat al Kabir”.

http://www.soebratie.nl/religie/hadith/IbnSad.html#01.1.51.1
Volume 1, Parts 1.51.1

Muhammad Ibn `Umar informed us; he said: Yunus Ibn Muhammad Ibn Fudalah al-Zafari related to me on the authority of his father; (second chain) he (Ibn Sa’d) said: Kathir Ibn Zayd related to me on the authority of al-Muttalib Ibn ‘Abd Allah Ibn Hantab; they said:

The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, had seen his people departing from him. He was one day sitting alone when he expressed a desire: I wish, Allah had not revealed to me anything distasteful to them. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, approached them (Quraysh) and got close to them, and they also came near to him. One day he was sitting in their assembly near the Ka`bah, and he recited: “By the Star when it setteth”, (Qur’an, 53:1) till he reached, “Have ye thought upon Al-Uzza and Manat, the third, the other”. (Qur’an, 53:19-20) Satan made him repeat these two phrases: These idols are high and their intercession is expected. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, repeated them, and he went on reciting the whole surah and then fell in prostration, and the people also fell in prostration with him. Al-Walid Ibn al-Mughirah, who was an old man and could not prostrate, took a handful of dust to his forehead and prostrated on it. It is said: Abu Uhayhah Sa’id Ibn al-‘As, being an old man, took dust and prostrated on it. Some people say: It was al-Walid who took the dust; others say: It was Abu Uhayhah; while others say: Both did it. They were pleased with what the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, had uttered. They said: We know that Allah gives life and causes] death. He creates and gives us provisions, but our deities will intercede with Him, and in what you have assigned to them, we are with you. These words pricked the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him. He was sitting in his house and when it was evening, Gabriel, may peace be on him, came to him and revised the surah. Then Gabriel said: Did I bring these two phrases. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: I ascribed to Allah, what He had not said.

Then Allah revealed to him: “And they indeed strove hard to beguile thee (Muhammad) away from that wherewith We have inspired thee, that thou shouldst invent other than it against Us; and then would they have accepted thee as a friend. And if We had not made thee wholly firm thou mightest almost have inclined unto them a little.

Then had We made thee taste a double (punishment) of living and a double (punishment) of dying then hadst thou found no helper against Us. (Al-Qur’an, 17:73-75. This narration is not acceptable, because none of the first narrators is a Companion. For a detailed discussion see Shibli, Sirat al-Nabi, 1st edition, p. 176)

 

Moe was desperate for recruits. He wished that Allah had not revealed anything displeasing to the pagans of Mecca, so he allowed Satan to interject some verses of his own which the Meccans approved. Yeah, right.

Review 8.67 quoted above; what does Allah want as the price of Moe’s admission to his celestial bordello? “Great slaughter“.  Who seeks the genocide of the human race, God or Satan?  Who runs a carnal house, God or Satan? Allahu Shaytan!!!

If you doubt that Jannah is a carnal house, read Surah An-Naba’! See also Surah Al-Baqarah

If any doubt remains, go to Book 41 of Tirmidhi for the details of Paradise.

Wives from the Fire

   

Wait a minute! Muslims only get 2 Houris in Jannah, what of the 70?  Who but Satan would take Jews and Christians out of the fire for Muslims to screw eternally???  If you go to Hell, some blessed Muslim will screw your widow for eternity.  This is a weak hadith, but the fact that a scholar included it in his sunan speaks volumes about Allah’s character.

 

Sunan Ibn Majah 5.423
http://www.archive.org/download/SunanIbnMajah5Vol.Set/Sunan-Ibn-Majah-Volume-5-English.pdf#page=423
4337. It was narrated from Abu
Umhah that the Messenger of
Allah said: “There is no one
whom Allah will admit to
Paradise but Allah will marry him
to seventy-two wives, two from
houris and seventy from his inheritance
from the people of Hell,
all of whom will have desirable front passages
and he will have a male member that
never becomes flaccid (i.e., soft and limp).”‘ (Da’if)
Hisham bin Khalid said: “From
his inheritance from the people of,
Hell” means: “Men who enter
Hell, and the people of Paradise
will inherit their wives, just as the, –
wife of Pharaoh will be inherited.”

 

Rescue from Hell

   

What could be more demonic than giving your widow to a Muslim as a sex slave?  Exchanging you for a damned Muslim; you burn in his place. This is a sahih hadith: its authentic.  Allah will take Muslims from the fire and replace them with Jews and Christians.   Allahu Shaytan!!!!

 

http://www.quranexplorer.com/Hadith/English/Hadith/muslim/037.6665.html
Sahih MuslimBook 037, Number 6665: 

Abu Musa’ reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.
