Recently we’ve been horrified and sickened with the reports of gruesome beheadings in Iraq and Syria. The so-called ISIS army is proudly claiming responsibility for these deaths, proudly proclaiming that they are doing this in the name of allah, their god of Islam. So is this what Islam is? Are we being rudely awakened to see in actuality what Islam is? Or is Islam “peace”, as George W. Bush claimed?
But the religion he started was not the true way of salvation. Islam greatly disagrees with the Bible in the fact that Jesus is not accepted as the Son of God. This lets us know that Mohammed’s angel was not Gabriel, but rather satan “transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11: 14-15). And since satan comes “to steal, to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10), it comes as no surprise that Islam forces captives to convert to Islam. The Koran actually says to kill those who do not accept Islam as the true religion. It states:
“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads…”
Though Franklin Graham’s statement that Islam is an “evil religion” caused a great controversy in 2001, it was exactly right. Mike Huckabee points out that after the Muslim holidays violence is expected by our government. However, he like-wise points out that Christian holidays are times of peace and good will. Let’s get a clue, folks! (For more see: http://www.religiousfreedomcoalition.org/2013/08/13)
The great danger in Mr. Obama’s promotion of Islam is that our law will be changed (even more!) from its Christian ideas to Islamic ideas. All you have to do is go to Saudi Arabia or Iran to figure out how oppressive that would be! Men having several wives; women treated like slaves; the cruelest of punishments for those who won’t bow to Islam— all are fruit of Islamic philosophy. Do we want those laws in America? Then we better wake up to what Moslems are doing here! (An excellent resource on the Islam strategy to take over America is found in Dr. Bill Wagner’s book, How Islam Plans to Change the World, available on Amazon.com)
George Washington warned us in his Farewell Address concerning the dangers of mixing our Biblically-based law with foreign thought. He stated:
“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence…a free people [must] be constantly awake; since…foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government.”
(George Washington’s Farewell Address; Sept. 19, 1796)
So what is to be our attitude toward Moslems? We’re to love them, witness to them with kind acts and kind words from Jesus Christ. However, we are to stand boldly and declare, “We won’t let your religious philosophy invade our education, economic, or governmental systems!” If we do, they will institute violence and chaos. Do we want to be another Middle East?
Think about it; because if you don’t, someone else will do your thinking for you—and for your children! And you won’t like what that brings to you. I’m Don Pinson; this has been Think About It.
