About Islam

When Evangelicals Become Useful Idiots for Islamism

Yasir Qadhi and Dr James White

James Simpson | American Thinker

Our culture looks to be coming apart at the seams. The June 14 attack on the GOP Congressional Baseball team is only an exclamation point in an increasingly hostile, increasingly violent, premeditated campaign by Democrats and other leftists to create an atmosphere of ungovernable anarchy. The Christian church has not escaped this agenda. In fact, it has become a major target. The Left, in concert with its allies among atheists, Islamists, and the homosexual lobby, is engaged in a multi-front war to destroy what remains of our nation's Christian bedrock. One of the fronts in this war comes under the innocuous heading "Interfaith Dialog". It sounds so compelling: a mutually beneficial outreach for "differing faith traditions" to find common ground and join forces to mend the fractious divisions between Muslims, Christians, Jews, and for that matter, practically everyone else.

But that is not what is accomplished. As Robert Spencer repeatedly argues, most Muslims want to live their lives like the rest of us. They want nothing to do with the radical jihadis, Islamic terrorism, or indeed much of the classical interpretations of Islam that classifies women and non-Muslims as second-class citizens. The problem is that while apologists reassure us that we have nothing to fear, those in the forefront of this battle, like the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the hundreds of other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, are determined to use every tactic at their disposal to deconstruct our laws, our Constitution and our religious and secular institutions, to replace them with the Islamic version, Sharia law. As Spencer says, "They take advantage of our ignorance about Islam to mislead people into complacency about Islam."

The Interfaith Deception Upon Richmond, Virginia and Beyond

Chuck Crismier

The INTER-FAITH movement sweeping the country and the world is the latest expression of a series of "modern"movements that began in the 1920's and is inexorably moving toward a Global Religion intended to unite the world so as to undergird a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.. 

From the Social Gospel movement that raged through the mainline churches beginning in the 1920's to the Ecumenical movement beginning in the 1940's to the Church Growth movement beginning in the 1970's, the course has been set to both justify and embrace "the good" in all religions, promoted by both mainline churches and Popes John Paul and Francis. Evangelicals, not wanting to be left out of the obvious trends, have increasingly embraced this rising religious culture, thus decreasingly embracing the exclusivity of Christ as the "the only way, the only truth and the only life." Nearly lost to this generation are Jesus words..."No man cometh to the Father but by Me."

Inter-Faith Myths and Islam - Part 2 A Christian Perspective

Figure 1 Timeline of People Relevant to Christian and Islamic Thought

Interfaith Yoga DiversityArticle 2 in the series  (see full lnterfaith list here) and also see indepth webinar by Dr. Mark Christian,  called Beheading the Church here on American Pastors Network.

Inter-Faith Myths and Islam presented ideas expressed during two Richmond ‘inter-faith’ events about Islam. Ignored is the fact many of these ‘truths’ are not only contrary to, but incompatible with Christianity. We will cover some of the same ground presented in the first article, but this time with a basis in Christian thought.

This is critical for two reasons. First, the Muslim Brotherhood seeks to manipulate other religions by subverting the inter-faith movement. We know this from the documents recovered in the Holy Land Foundation trial.[1] Second, many Christians today do not have a very deep understanding of their own faith, which leaves them vulnerable to manipulation. But let me reiterate once again, the underlying issue is not Muslims but Islam’s ideology.

So where to begin? Islam created no new ideas in terms of who God is or the relationship between man and God as we will see below. Two timelines are presented to provide some context for this discussion. The first timeline details when some people relevant to the development of Christian and Islamic thought lived. It is of course not exhaustive, but those included are significant. Individuals influencing Christian thought lie above the timeline, those relevant to Islam below it.

Inter-Faith Myths and Islam: Part 1

Article 1 in a Series  and also see indepth webinar by Dr. Mark Christian,  called Beheading the Church here on American Pastors Network.

Interfaith Yoga Diversity by Dan Wolf  (see full lnterfaith list here)

This is the first in a series of articles examining a serious faith problem that is rapidly growing in Richmond and across our nation, the ‘inter-faith’ movement. The movement’s stated purpose is promoting dialogue across different religions; particularly Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Jews and Christians share the Torah, or Bible Old Testament, a common bond that’s existed for almost 2,000 years. Neither of these religions share a similar bond with Islam.

However, the dialogue within these events is not open. It rests instead on a mutual trust based only on what a party (such as Islam) chooses to disclose about its religion - truth regarding religion is not defined by facts or understanding, but only by what one chooses to reveal about their religion. Others (such as non-Muslims) are to accept those disclosures as ‘truth.’ Truth becomes subjective instead of objective. It creates a type of impenetrable ignorance, shifting religion’s focus away from God and onto man’s stated beliefs regarding a religion, an understanding based solely on what a person chooses to reveal about their own religion.

One can only reflect upon their own religion according to ‘inter-faith’ principles. This insulates Islam from critical analysis while at the same time providing it the opportunity to dislocate others from their faith. These conditions serve the Muslim Brotherhood’s planned civilization jihad as defined in their documents collected during the Holy Land Foundation trial. Islam’s principle of sanctioned deceit and at times lies to further Islam’s advance allow it to manipulate ‘inter-faith’ discussions in accordance with its goals. Individual Islamic groups have been created to dialogue with students, Catholics, Protestants, and Jews.

The Richmond area “inter-faith” group recently held events at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and St. Bridget Catholic Church. (both videos below)Their stated purpose was to increase our community’s understanding of Islam. Presenters at both events expressed the conviction that a lack of knowledge about something different often leads to being fearful, and education is needed to overcome this fear. I agree with that sentiment; however, there is a difference between truth and misinformation.

A Cocktail, A Comfy Chair and A Crown of Thorns

crown of thorns lgAndrew W. Fuller | The Fuller Report

Last week's events in Manchester, England, reminded me of the following article which I wrote ten years ago in March 2007. They are a reflection on the futility of the suicide bomber, compared to the death of Him who knew exactly what He was doing in offering His life as a sacrifice for the cause of His Kingdom.

A survivor who saw the driver of the truck said that he was smiling as he drove to his destruction. On October 23rd, 1983, a truck laden with explosives was crashed into the American marine compound in Beirut killing 241 American servicemen and several Lebanese. A similar incident at the same moment in the neighboring French compound killed 58. Two suicide bombers took more than 300 people with them into eternity. The Middle East has been filled with these incidents over recent years; Lebanon, Israel, Gaza and Iraq. The latter is presently the site of daily occurrences of this kind taking dozens, if not hundreds of lives.

In 1993, in his first western television interview Sheikh Hassan Nasrullah, the leader of the Hezbollah, attempted to explain the attitude of mind of a Muslim martyr. He spoke of one who drives a truck with a smile on his face, knowing he is entering into true life. He likened this to a person being in a sauna for a long time. “He is very thirsty and tired and hot and he is suffering from the effects of the high temperature. Then he is told that if he opens the door, he can go into a quiet, comfortable room, drink a nice cocktail and hear classical music. Then he will open the door and go through without hesitation, knowing that what he leaves behind is not a high price to pay, and what awaits him is of much greater value”[i]
