Christianity and Islam

A Muslim is not a nationality but is anyone who accepts Islam. No, Islam isn't a cult, but it is one of the major world religions and one that is directly opposed to Christianity. Today there is an explosion of Muslims in many countries including the USA. They claim that there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet. This is the great Shahada, or confession that faithful Muslims around the world declare every day. This separates the Muslims from all other world religions including Judaism and Christianity. Many countries of the world are now ruled by those of the Islamic faith.

What about the contributions the Islamic countries have made to society? When looking at Islam it should be noted that 57 Islamic countries are the poorest countries in the world. An amazing sixty percent of those who have submitted to Islam (called Muslims) are illiterate. Forty percent of Islamic states come in below the poverty level. These 57 Islamic countries are the world's most illiterate and contribute the very least to scientific and technological advancement of any country. Islamists do hold a world record to be sure; they have enslaved 100 million people over 14 centuries and are the largest slave traders in the world and continue to enslave people today.

One of the errors of the Quran is clear and undeniable. The Quran claims that Islam is built upon the notion that Abraham was a Muslim, Quran 2:31, and that he was selected by Allah to build the Kaaba in Mecca, Quran 2:125-127. While he was doing this he established the rituals and beliefs that are the cornerstone of the Islamic worship. There is no record of Abraham being in Mecca and we find that archeological evidence and historical records prove that Mecca did not exist during Abraham's life.

Islam is said by many to be a religion of peace. Islam is an ideology that promotes the world being ruled by Sharia law. One would have to look at how Muslim's define the religion of peace. It is one of chaos, brutality, and mercilessly violent. Islam is a totalitarian ideology that has three phases. It is a complete system of life mixing religion, politics, and law that is enforced by a militia that enforces the teachings of the Quran.

There are three phases of Islam:

In the first phase Muslim's portray to others in society tolerance and peace to those people who tolerate Islam but do not embrace or reject it. The Quran has many contradictions to outsiders but to Muslim's it has no contradictions. The first part of the Quran applies to Muslims who emigrated and are a minority in a foreign country. At this time they call themselves peaceful or moderate Muslims. They are allowed to lie in order to cover their true intentions.

In the second phase of Islam, Muslim's use the shorter chapters near the back of the Quran. These chapters supersede the earlier chapters of the Quran that were used when they were a minority group in a foreign country. This second phase applies to Muslims who are becoming a majority in a neighborhood, city, or region. Muslim's are then required to institute a political system that does away with a country's present laws. Their goal is to make the neighborhood, city, or region compliant to Sharia law and do away with their constitutional laws. A Muslim's goal is to change all governments to Sharia law. When possible Muslim's are required to run for public office to change existing laws and slowly bring in Sharia Law to replace the laws of the country they are now in.

The third and last phase of Islam is found in chapter 9 of the Quran. Muslim's are now a majority and the cities, states, and countries will be converted to Islam by widespread violence against Jews, Christians, and all unbelievers. This does away with the earlier longer peaceful passages of the Quran. Once every country in the world has been converted to Islam and under Sharia law there will be a worldwide Caliphate and peace.

Islam is a name that came from the teachings of Muhammad and is an Arabic term for submission. The Muslim name is given to those who have surrendered their life to Islam and means one who submits. Therefore, Muslims are not a specific nationality but are made up of people from all nationalities that surrender to Islam. They submit to the will of Allah, the Islamic name for god, as revealed by Muhammad. Muhammad was born in Mecca and lived from 570 A.D. to 632 A.D.. Muhammad means "the one who is praised' and he claimed he was a prophet that would restore true religion throughout the world.

Islam is divided into sects. The largest one is that of the Sunnite sect. These accept the four caliphs in succession from Muhammad and no others. The Sunnis are the moderate form of the Islamic sects. The second largest sect is the Shiaite sect. The Shiaite's have a more liberal interpretation of Islam. Compared to the Sunnis they are more militant and fanatical. Most of Iran's Muslims are of the Shiaite sect. The Ahmdiyan sect is sa small sect that was began in the 1800's. The mystical sect of Islam is the Sufi's. They are rejected by some conservative Muslim's.

Muslim's believe that Allah is the only true god. They do not believe in the trinity nor do they believe that Jesus was the Son of God nor God. They accept Jesus Christ as only a prophet but Muhammad supercedes Jesus. Christians believe that Jesus died to pay for their sins but Islam says that Christ did not atone for anyone's sins but agree that Jesus was sinless. They don't believe that Jesus died on the cross. Someone else was substituted in His place. Most Muslims say that Judas Iscariot looked like Jesus and was crucified in the place of Jesus. Their writings say that Jesus was taken bodily into heaven without having died, Surah 4:157.

Muslim say their salvation is one of works and fate. There are two ways to escape the judgment of Allah. One is to fulfill the works of the Five Pillars of the Faith, do their five daily prescribed prayers, give one fortieth of their income as charitable contributions, fast during the entire month of Ramadan and make a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca, the holy city, one time in their life. The second way to avoid judgment, no matter how you live, is to lose your life while fighting against those who refuse to accept the Islamic faith. The Islamic faith teaches that it is a sacred duty of it's members to murder anyone that doesn't accept the Islamic faith.
This should be compared to their belief that Allah predestines all that will happen to each Muslim. They testify to this by the use of the phrase "inshallah", meaning "if God wills."
