A Cocktail, A Comfy Chair and A Crown of Thorns

A Cocktail, A Comfy Chair and A Crown of Thorns

Andrew 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] Read More

A Short Overview of Sharia

A Short Overview of Sharia

  Bill Warner | Polticial Islam Since Islam is primarily a political system, it would only make sense that it has a legal code. The Islamic legal code is called Sharia (also shariah), meaning the way. The source of the Sharia is the Koran and the Sunna (found in the Sira and the Hadith). Since the Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims do not agree on which Hadith to use, they have slightly different Sharia systems. Sharia law covers all aspects of life, including how a man and woman should have sex, for instance. Roughly there are five areas of Sharia law: Belief-Allah, His angels, His books, His prophets, the Day of Judgment and the decrees of God. 2. Moralities-giving good counsel, humility, patience and so forth. 3. Devotions-the Five Pillars, alms, pilgrimage to Mecca, and jihad. 4. Transactions-business law, marriage, divorce and disputes. 5. Punishments-stoning, amputation, lashings, and retaliation. Some divide Sharia law into religious law and the rest. All Sharia is based upon dividing all actions into forbidden (haram, haraam) and permitted (halal). Things that are halal, permitted, are further divided into five classes such as acts that are desirable, but may be omitted. Things that are haraam, forbidden, are divided into three categories, such as strictly forbidden or unclean. There are four branches to Sunni Sharia law. They differ in small matters, but just like the Shia Sharia law they all agree that kafirs are not equal to Muslims under Sharia law. Said another way, all of the differences between Sharia law schools do not affect the law with regards to kafirs. Jihad is included in every school of law. Read More

“America Under Siege: Soviet Islam” New Film and a Must See

“America Under Siege: Soviet Islam” New Film and a Must See

  CAPITAL RESEARCH CENTER BRINGS YOU SOVIET ISLAM, A MUST SEE FILM FOR ALL AMERICANS “Only a coalition of Islamists and Marxists can destroy the United States.”  Ilyich Ramírez Sánchez, AKA Carlos the Jackal Soviet Islam is the second episode in the five-part America Under Siege webseries releasing over the course of 2017. Each episode investigates the growing influence of revolutionary Marxists and their allies in different sectors of American society. When the Soviet Union failed to eradicate religion, it quickly changed tactics. After World War II, Soviet Communists forged alliances with unlikely partners – radical Islamists and Middle Eastern nationalist dictators. Beginning in the Cold War and continuing through to today, the Kremlin has armed, trained, and supported these Islamists and dictators to advance a frightening goal: subverting their shared American enemy.

Trump’s Travel Ban and the Two Forms of Islam

Trump’s Travel Ban and the Two Forms of Islam

(for more indepth understanding of Islam, see  Virginia Christian Alliance advisor, Dan Wolf's 13 part series by clicking HERE)  (See Part 1 Here) Fortress of Faith Radio by Tom Wallace and Shahram Hadian, and today's program: The History of Islam.  Below are simple SHOW NOTES and prone to typos.  So, Listen to the program HERE ( OR DOWLOAD THE MP3 HERE) I want to look at why I support President Trump’s travel ban on people from certain countries that pose a danger to our national security. I believe this is an important issue and it is too bad that it has turned into a political circus. We are risking the safety and security of the American people. This article is based upon an interview by a local TV station in Washington State. There have been some changes in the situation since this was recorded. When I teach on the complexity of the terrorism issue and the teachings of Islam, my goal is to make it as simple as possible. To put it simply, I used to say that there is only one Islam and I have come to realize that is not true. There are actually two forms of Islam. There is the true Islam, Muhammad’s Islam, and there is fake Islam. We could call the fake Islam moderate Islam or reformed Islam. This is the popular term for those who are trying to change the religion. Read More

The History of Islam Part 2

The History of Islam Part 2

  (for more indepth understanding of Islam, see  Virginia Christian Alliance advisor, Dan Wolf's 13 part series by clicking HERE)  (See Part 1 Here) Fortress of Faith Radio by Tom Wallace and Shahram Hadian, and today's program: The History of Islam.  Below are simple SHOW NOTES and prone to typos.  So, Listen to the program HERE ( OR DOWLOAD THE MP3 HERE) We call Islam a religion, but historically we see it is more of a political-military movement. We see this when we study the caliphates (empires) of Islam. Before we get into the next period, I want to go back to Muhammad’s migration to Medina. Not only did the character of Islam change at that time, there was also a change of the calendar. The Islamic calendar is not the same as ours. We are in 2016, but on the Muslim calendar it is 1438. Their calendar begins in our year 622. Our calendar uses the abbreviation AD to indicate Ano Domini, the year of our Lord. The Muslim calendar uses AH for Ano Hijra (migration), the year of the migration. Today we are 578 years apart, but since our calendar is based on the solar year, and the Muslim calendar is based on the lunar year, the gap is closing. The lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the solar year. The calendars will agree in the year 2860. Read More

(Philippians 1:17) We, as Christians, need to stand up and defend what we believe in. Our goal at Fortress of Faith is to defend our faith from the onslaught of the religion of Islam. Islam claims that our Scriptures have been corrupted and they have the superior religion and the superior scriptures. My background is that of a foreign missionary, and Shahram’s background is that of a former Muslim who is now a Christian pastor. Today we are going to try to cover 1,400 years of Islamic history. We are going to pick up our look at Islam’s history at Muhammad’s death. He died in the year 632 AD. Read More

Hatred and the Political Left

Hatred and the Political Left

Dan WolfVirginia Christian Alliance Dan Wolf Author: Collectivism & Charity: The Great Deception For those of you who do not know, the Virginia Christian Alliance (VCA) was recently cited as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Normally, I would not bother to respond to such a list, but there are a couple of important points to be made that support the VCA site’s purpose and the writings I have put together on the relationship between faith and governance. The first item is to understand the Southern Poverty Law Center’s point of view and then evaluate it. We’ll start by defining hate so that we are all on the same page.  According to the dictionary it is “to regard with extreme aversion; have great dislike for; detest.” I went to the SPLC web-site to see their criteria for inclusion in the list. The information about the SPLC’s hate map states, “All hate groups have beliefs or practices that malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” Read More

Will We Stand for Truth?

Will We Stand for Truth?

Dan Wolf | Virginia Christian Alliance Advisory Board Our country is grounded in Judeo/Christian principles. Living in the truth is one such principle. “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought by God.” No one should fear the truth, although at times we may be afraid. The truth is the light which sets us free. It is when truth is suppressed that we should fear, for the light fades and darkness comes forth. So why am I bringing this up Recently a religious organization in Virginia agreed to have a well known and highly regarded historian appear to give a presentation on Islam’s history. A couple of days before the event was to occur, it was cancelled because of a few phone calls and emails from the local interfaith community that said the presenter and presentation were untruthful. What is troubling is that: Read More
