Scripture:- Luke 21:25-38
Topic:- Treatise To Understand Christianity And Islamic
Text:- Luke 21:36
Bill Warner in his treatise after spending years studying Islam notes, “The biggest statistical surprise was the dualistic nature of Islamic doctrine.
Islam holds contradictory ideas that are simultaneously true.
Now this confounds all Western logic, but this gives Islam its great strength.
Islam is peace. Islam is jihad. Islam is a brother to Christianity and Judaism. Islam annihilates Christianity and Judaism.
Warner notes further, “The Kafir is the victim in nearly every verse by Allah and most actions by Mohammed.
The grandest lie of Islam is that Muslims have the correct view of Islam.
But dualism demands that there are two correct views that contradict each other and cannot be logically aligned.
Hence, there is the Kafir-centric view of Islam that is equally valid as the Muslim-centric view.
Islam, the Universities, and the apologists all insist that only the Muslim view is the true view. This is an error that is not supported by facts.
“The use of the term “extreme” implies that something is being measured, and it is off the chart. There is one and only one measure of Islam and that is its doctrine.
For example, Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for thirteen years and made only 150 converts. But when he turned to jihad, ten years later he died, he was the ruler of Arabia and every Arab was a Muslim.
Conclusion: jihad is normal, not extreme. But notice that since Islam is dualistic, Muslims can claim that it is peaceful.
“As to the claim that the Jihadists are few in number, look at war statistics.
During WW II only 10% of the US population was in the Military. Did that mean the US was not at war? No.
In war only a few are doing the actual work, the rest of the Country backs them with labor, money and morale.
There are four ways to be a jihadist – sword, pen, speech and money. Jihad is incumbent on ALL Muslims; therefore, it is the sixth pillar of Islam.”
The book, Journey into the mind of an Islamic terrorist, reveal that the threat posed by Islam is real and infectious.
It is infectious in the sense that terrorism is a seed planted in the minds of innocent men and women right from the childhood.
Muslims in countries like Libya , Egypt where terrorism is breeding ground are deceived to believe there is a paradise awaiting them with virgins if they sacrifice their lives for the cause of ALLAH.
The Nigerian case is so bad that the President has openly admitted that Boko Haram has infiltrated the Government.
Nigerians now live in fear. The onslaught of the sect has become a daily occurrence. Where do we go and what do we do?
First, I would suggest that there is a need for Christians to come together as never before and intensify our intercession.
We are not against Muslims. We are against Islam. It is the poison that is being fed to the Muslim. It is a deadly cult.
We should purge ourselves and begin to focus on kingdom work rather that our little Empires scattered around the globe.
It is time for Christians to bury their denominational differences and embrace the task of winning the lost because the sinners we don’t win will in turn consume us.
It is also important that we begin to purge ourselves of this notion that we serve the same God with Muslims.
It is unthinkable that the God of heaven is the same God as the ALLAH of Islam.
In our interaction with Muslims, it will be wrong for us to argue with them on the basis of their God.
ALLAH is ALLAH and YAHWEH is YAHWEH. They are two different things and those who subscribe to them have two different destinies.
We should also be more discreet and cautious. This is the time to display raw faith in the God of heaven.
This is the time to hold tenaciously to our faith.
This is the time to be more than ever convinced of what we believe.
This is the time to take up the cross and follow on a daily basis.
Finally, I will like to suggest that we must become wary of the type of guards we keep.
There are signs to show that some of the guards are deliberately planted in some Churches and houses so they could understudy the place and provide information to terrorists.
Your guard may very well be used to invade your territory. This is the time to watch and pray.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to be watchful and be prayerful henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Great Saturday!
