Ravi Zacharias – “You can’t know the counterfeit unless you know the genuine.”

Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias talks about the crucial importance of knowing the difference between Christianity and Islam.

“These emergent churches are going to produce a generation of people who actually will not be able to handle the challenge of Islam and other major world religions.”

 

Time to Get Off Your Knees

Pray -- And then take ACTION

God is not apathetic or inactive. Follow His example.

Look at the world, pastors. Your Christian brothers and sisters — and even unbelievers — are being slaughtered like flies by a radical, violent and ungodly religion that has an agenda to rule over all. We are called to pray in these situations, but it’s time to get off your knees, end your silence and take action.

*If you have turned a blind eye to the violence against God’s people, He will turn a blind eye to you.

*If your parishioners are uninformed as to why the violence is happening, you need to be the one doing the educating.

*If you think God wants you to remain silent and/or defend Islam, you need to read your Bible. 

Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” Is that what you are teaching? Or are you more concerned with the teachings of Humanism than of God?

The Church is failing miserably. God will hold all pastors accountable.

 

“Bankrupt Professors and Pastors”

Dr. Bill Warner discusses “bankrupt professors and pastors.” 

Why Don’t Christians Study the History of Their Own Persecution?

Today in the West, we see the beginning of the annihilation of our civilization due to the deference we pay to Islamic migration and Sharia and we refuse to see the true nature and goals of Islam—complete domination of all aspects of our society.

— Dr. Bill Warner

Pastors,

The Bible is a handbook on how to live life, and it cannot stand as such without also being a history book. If we fail to understand the relevance of history in our lives, we risk losing basic freedoms, including how we worship as Christians, and that’s already happening around the world today.

So why does the The Church fail to study the history of it’s own persecution? You know the saying, “History just repeats itself.” Watch the incredibly informative Bill Warner video on “Hijra, Islamic Migration” and see the history of Islam unfold . . . and repeat itself. How absolutely mind blowing that most Christians today are unable to comprehend what we are facing! Islam has an agenda: Everyone on earth should be a Muslim.

Will you share this information with your church?!

List of “Mentally Ill” Muslims Keeps Growing

Media outlets across the globe continue to feed outright lies to the public under the guise of “news.” The latest? A German couple having a picnic was stabbed by man yelling “Allahu Akbar!”  The teachings of Islam has nothing to do with the violence, of course. These people are just “mentally ill.”

Read the list of attacks occurring in the last two months.  No terrorism here! Just close your eyes and ears, ignore the blatant hatred of all that is not Islam by Islam,  and keep moving!

When will The Church be brave enough to point out the reality of Islam and the senseless loss of life?

Islamic Dualism at Work in Washington?

For more then 10 years, Clinton Aide Huma Abedin worked as assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs  under her mother’s direction, who is currently editor-in-chief. Many might reply, “So what?” The journal’s purpose contains the answer.

The purpose of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is to further the cause of Islam, of course. For those who believe that Islam is “just another religion,” a real understanding of Islamic beliefs and culture is crucial. Let’s take the subject of women, for one. You may be shocked to find that within the Islamic doctrine of women:

*A woman’s highest achievement is motherhood. Most feminists would  argue that point vehemently.

*Men and women will be judged equally on Judgement Day.  At first glance, this seems quite logical and “fair.” But by what criteria will women be judged? Islamic women are held to different standards than men and will be held to those standards on Judgement Day, also. Keep reading.

*The veil and clothing are to be used to conceal a woman’s sexuality.  For years, feminists complained about the writings of Paul in which he encourages women to dress with modesty. We hear nothing from those same feminists as Islam forces women in many parts of the world to cover their entire bodies in a black cloth (burka), leaving only their eyes to be seen. The practice is supposed to discourage men from becoming sexually aroused by women and to keep women safe from rape.  Rape is almost always the woman’s fault in Islam, by the way. (So much for the male strength and willpower Muslim society purports. In plain Islamic truth, it’s the Muslim woman who is responsible for controlling a Muslim man’s sexual behavior.)

*A woman’s behavior during her menstrual cycle must be controlled by a man.  Good luck with that one.

*Most of the people in Hell will be women. If men and women are judged “equally,” how can this be? Because . . .

*Women are less intelligent than men.  Again, where is the outrage from feminists?

*Women have half the legal standing of a man.  Recently, a Muslim man  demanded the implementation of Islamic Sharia law within the American court system to prove his belief that women are subservient and American society should abide by Sharia, not the Constitution.

*It is an insult to say that Allah has daughters.  In Christianity, all are sons and daughters of God, though not all desire to be such. God does not force us to believe in Him. “Allah” does.

If the Islamic doctrine of women is to be held as true within Islam, how can Huma Abedin hold the position she holds within American politics?

If the Islamic beliefs listed concerning women are to be held as true within Islam, how can Huma Abedin hold the position she holds within American politics, let alone work for a politician and a political organization that carries the banners for extreme feminism, abortion, gay rights and even more ideals and belief systems that fly in the face of Islamic doctrine? In 1996, Abedin’s own mother spoke out against Hillary Clinton’s belief that “women’s rights are human rights,”  arguing that “single moms, working moms, and homosexual couples with children should not be recognized as families.”

Perhaps Abedin does not fully understand her own religious beliefs, but that is unlikely.

Perhaps she adheres to “some” Islamic beliefs, which is more likely. However, if she professes to be a “devout” Muslim, which she does, devoutness in Islam demands adherence to all teachings of Mohammed.

As Dr. Bill Warner, founder of the Center for the Study of Political Islam so succinctly states, “There are only two kinds of Muslims — those who follow the Islamic doctrine and those who do not. The second kind can do whatever they want, and if it is good, then Islam gets the credit. Or they can be of the first kind and
simply be deceiving the Kafir.”

With Warner’s statement in mind, there are other very possible answers.

1. Abedin doesn’t follow Islamic doctrine, but she knows Islam will receive credit in this world, because she says she’s a Muslim, or . . .

2. Abedin is deceiving the Karifs, which puts a magnifying glass on the dualism of Islamic teachings: lying is forgivable if it furthers the cause of Islam. In order to get what you desire as a Muslim, you are forgiven for doing whatever it takes within a non-Islamic system to bring that system down in order for Islam to rule. Islamic teachings — those directed by Mohammed — tell Muslims to lie to the Kafirs (non-Muslims) to get their way. Muslims are told not to be true friends of “People of the Book” (Christians), though they are allowed to engage with them under the guise of friendship.

Considering the number of Muslims in positions of power within our own government — from political aides to recent appointment of Muslim judges to American benches — possibility #2 is more than just a disconcerting thought.

Some of the most educated people of the world are defiantly uneducated as to the true teachings of Islam.  Even in the face of rising numbers of horrific acts of terror by Muslims, they stand with Islam — so much so that acts of pure evil, brought on by Muslims obeying the teachings of Mohammed, are being swept under the rug. In reporting the latest cases of Islamic violence, the media is deliberately hiding the facts and motives by labeling those responsible as “mentally disturbed.” No mention of Islam until the truth is so apparent to the world that the reports are quietly and delicately updated. Innocent men, women and children are being raped, stabbed, beheaded, blown up, slaughtered, all at the behest of the teachings of Islam — not “radical” Islam. Islam.  Until we get that, nothing will change, and the violence against Christians will only become worse.

So what do we do with the truth of Islam as Christians?
It is not “loving” to ignore those who avow allegiance to Allah and Islam, especially if our apathy leads to the murder of innocent people.

The first line of defense in this spiritual war is for Christian pastors, and all Christians, to dive deeply into the  teachings of the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible. A May 2015 article from Pew Research stated that 70% of Americans in 2014 called themselves Christians (dropping from 78.4% from 2007). Do all of the 70% truly understand what they believe?  Of course not. Most have never read the Bible cover to cover. Even if it is read, few study it diligently. If Christians were to gain a true understanding of the magnificent string of Truth that is tied from the beginning to the end of the Bible, they would be better able to answer basic — and complicated — questions of faith. More importantly, they would be able to answer questions asked by non-believers, who are searching for real answers, and the questions of those whose focus and agenda is to taunt and tear down the true meaning and existence of God.

The second line of defense is to understand the teachings of Islam. Yes, it really is your job as a pastor to understand Islam. We cannot make up our way to God. He has already defined The Way. And when others are preaching false teachings, even within our own churches, we must stand up to the darkness. Allah is not God!

We must also realize that as so many Christians “go with the flow” without a real understanding of God, many Muslims are doing the same concerning their religion. The door is cracked open for them to receive Christ. As Jesus said in Luke 10:2:  “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

We can preach “love” all day long, but it is not “loving” to ignore those who avow allegiance to Allah and Islam, especially if our apathy leads to the murder of innocent people, too many of them our brothers and sisters in Christ. And what about the Islamic perpetrator of violence? Should we not be concerned for his earthly life and eternity, also?

In his 2006 book America Alone, Mark Steyn saw the writing on the wall. He predicted the influx of Muslim immigrants to the West, and violence as part of Islam’s ultimate goal to rule. Steyn calls America “the last bastion of freedom” and laments the state of The Church:  “There is no market for faith that has no faith in itself.”

Christianity is fast losing faith in itself as “all religions and gods are equal” becomes the new mantra from the pulpit. The demise of the free world gains strength as pastors ignore the consequences of watered-down faith. In contrast, Islamic followers have a steadfast faith in their god, their prophet and their doctrine. And Islam is growing.  Read the headlines. The imitation of Mohammed as “Allah’s only prophet” is at work everywhere. Even in Washington, D.C.  What will you do about it?

 

Syrian Pastor Risks All, Warns the West

The Western world has to know what is inside the Koran.The world is in trouble and chaos because of radical Muslim teachings. A lot of them are coming to Europe and America. — Pastor Saeed Ziadah

As a refugee from the Middle East, Pastor Saeed Ziadah and his wife thought they would be safe to talk about Christ and the Gospel in his new home of Norway. Even in Norway, he receives death threats, but he continues to share God’s Word.

American pastors have a hard time standing up to their own congregations and speaking Truth. Would you risk your life to share the love of Christ with Muslims? We can learn much from our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters. Sadly, their warnings concerning the teachings of Islam are falling on deaf Western-World ears.

“Extremism” – Comparing Christian and Islamic Teachings

A Jesus-centered life differs greatly from a Mohammed-centered life. Study the differences between Christianity and Islam and you will find a huge difference between Christian “extremism” in which Christians try to follow the word of Christ to the letter, and Islamic followers, who are commanded to imitate Mohammed for a life that will be pleasing to Allah.

New Code Words for Islamic Terrorism: “Mental Illness”

I beg of you, pastors: Be aware of your surroundings, and that includes what is happening in the media. Deception is at a peak, and it includes a brazen manipulations of words, something with which Satan has much experience. He twisted the words of the Old Testament over and over as he tried to temp Jesus in the desert. Why would his tactics change today? Stand — as Jesus stood — for Truth.

Understand that today you will read and hear the words “mental illness” in place of Islamic terrorism after an Islamic terrorist or sympathizer has committed a heinous act of violence.  All the more reason you should arm your parishioners with knowledge and truth.
