THE BRUTALITY OF SHARIA

No pictures for this article.  No quotes from other sources.  Just commentary from the heart.

One week ago yesterday I was having a rough day. People may not believe it, but I take all the Prayer request on our Ministry page to heart.  I sincerely Pray for each and every request.  Sometimes I get so burdened by all the suffering so many are having to endure I just have to step away from it all for a few hours.  Last Wednesday was one of those days.

I decided to go to Lifeway Christian Bookstore to do some "window shopping."  I knew I couldn't really afford to buy anything, but just "rolling" around the store browsing through the Books and Bibles is usually very uplifting to me.  I spent between an hour and a half and two hours in the store.  It was peaceful and uplifting, but I was still unable to let go of the burbened heart.

There is a Kentucky Fried Chicken near that particular Lifeway.  Being a Baptist Preacher I have a weakness for fried chicken.  I usually won't allow myself to spend the money for KFC, but as I said it was a rough day, KFC was close, so....  As I sat in my van eating my chicken, my phone beeped letting me know I had a message.  I started not to answer it until I finished eating, but decided I needed to check it in case it was something important.  It was.

It was from a Preacher friend of mine from another country, for his safety I want say who or where. There was a video attached to the message.  He didn't say what it was about, only that I needed to watch it.  I downloaded the video to my phone and began to watch while eating my chicken.  Just a few seconds into the video I stopped eating.

Since I've been involved in the Ministry God has placed me in, I've recieved many videos like this one.  I've seen video's of Christians being burned alive, beheaded, stoned, hung, shot, beat, and watched forced amputations. I've seen horrible pictures, read horrible first hand accounts from survivors.  Perhaps it was just the mood I was in, but none of them prepared me for this.  I probably watch less than 5% of the video's that are sent to me.  They ALWAYS leave a hole in my heart.  Very seldom do I pass any of the videos or pictures on to others, I fear they would only make people even more afraid to share their Faith with Muslims.  I know Jesus wants us to Preach the Gospel to Muslims. So I usually just don't pass the videos or pictures on.

This video started with a young black man on his knees. One masked Muslim dressed black man stood on either side with one hand on his shoulder, their other hand each held a black "Rambo" style knife.  Behind those 2 men stood several others, in Muslim dress as well, also with their faces covered, holding automatic or semi-automatic rifles.  To the left of the young man on his knees was another man in in Muslim dress, with his face covered reading from the Qur'an.

The young man on his knees did not have his hands tied, yet he didn't attempt to resist or get away.  There was no frantic look on his face, no fear apparent in his eyes.  He just gazed steadily toward the camera.  As the one continued reading from the Qur'an, one of the knife holders began to rub the serrated edge over the mans head, almost as if he was trying to comb the young mans hair. Still nothing from the young man on his knees.  All he had to do to stop this madness was to disavow Jesus and convert back to Islam. He knew very well what was about to happen, yet I couldn't even detect that his breathing had acceleradited.

This young man knew he was only seconds away from dying a horrible, painful death, yet he was totally at peace.  He knew he could stop by simply saying he was wrong, yet he remained silent.  When the man finished reading from the Qur'an, the masked man, on the young mans right side began to saw, not cut, saw at the young mans throat.  The pain MUST have been horrible, yet the young man never screamed, never resisted.  The crowd behind the man with the camera was yelling Allah Akbar as the man sawed.

When the man finally finished sawing, he held the young mans head up high to the chants of Allah Akbar for all to see. Then he placed the young mans head down on the young mans stomach and put his lifeless hands around the head to hold it in place.  Then as an added insult he wiped the blood from his knife onto the young mans lifeless face.  I could still hear the sporadic Allah Akbar in the background as the video ended.

As I said I had been sitting in my van eating fried chicken when I started to watch the video.  Needless to say, I never finished another bite of that chicken.  I had seriously considered taking 3 days to a week off from the internet Ministry to try to get an emotional break.  I felt so guilty.  Here I had been feeling sorry for myself and thinking I needed/deserved a break. I threw the chicken away, drove home, turned the computer on and went to work.

I don't think another day will ever pass that I don't remeber this young man. His Faith was amazing!  I don't think another day will pass that I don't Pray for his family. Reading the Apostle Paul's words have always inspired me, but they take on even more meaning now.  I sent the video out to 6 other Preachers and two Deacons.  Only 2 were able to watch it before it had been scrubbed from the internet.  Liberals and Progressives don't want you seeing the madness that is Sharia.

Please join me in Praying Daily for the end of this Brutality under the excuse of Sharia Law.  Please join me daily in Praying for the family of this young man, and for all Persecuted Christians around the world!

I am Forever in the Service of Jesus Christ,

Dan

NO SHARIA!

This has been a very bad year for Persecuted Christians, and it just got worse.  Some of the headlines from the past couple of days.

Islamists claim win in Tunisia's Arab Spring vote

"The first confirmed results show that Ennahda has obtained first place," campaign manager Abdelhamid Jlazzi said outside party headquarters in the center of the Tunisian capital.
As he spoke, a crowd of more than 300 in the street shouted "Allahu Akbar!" or "God is great!" Other people started singing the Tunisian national anthem.
"This is an historic moment," said Zeinab Omri, a young woman in a hijab, or Islamic headscarf, who was outside the Ennahda headquarters when party officials claimed victory.
"No one can doubt this result. This result shows very clearly that the Tunisian people is a people attached to its Islamic identity," she said.
On the fringes of the same rally, stalls sold books by Salafist authors, followers of a strict interpretation of Islam who believe women should be covered up and that the sexes should be segregated in public.


Shariah advances as constitution is rewritten


Sudanese leader setting up Christians for suffering

Sudanese leader Omer Hassan Al-Bashir is moving forward with rewriting the country's constitution to implement Shariah law, according to reports from organizations with links inside the Muslim-dominated nation.

International Christian Concern's North Africa specialist Jonathan Racho says that a Shariah-compliant constitution will mean more suffering for Sudan's remaining Christians.

"This new law (Shariah compliant constitution) is going to affect a significant number of Christians who live in places like Khartoum (the capital city). There are still a significant number of Christians in Sudan," Racho said.

"If Al-Bashir introduces this Shariah law and if he's going to go ahead and adopt an entirely Islamic constitution, Christians and other non-Muslims who live in Sudan will be treated like second-class citizens," Racho said.
"They will be dhimmis and they will not have full rights in the freedom of religion," Racho said.

Island nation cracks down on preaching unofficial Islam, non-Islamic faiths.
Police in the island nation of Maldives held a teacher from India for about 15 days before deporting him on Oct. 14 for having a Bible in his house, a source said.


Shijo Kokkattu, a 30-year-old Catholic and teacher at the Raafainu School in Raa Atoll, had been arrested in late September after police found a Bible and a rosary in his house during a raid, a foreign source in the capital city of Male told Compass by phone.


Charging that Kokkattu was preaching his Christian faith in the Muslim nation, which recently tightened restrictions on preaching and practice of non-Islamic faiths, police took him to another island for interrogation and kept him in custody for more than two weeks, said the source, who requested anonymity.

Malaysian Police Gives 'Defend Islam' Rally Green LightCarolyn Hong-Straits Times Indonesia | October 20, 2011

Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police have issued a permit for a mass gathering of Muslims this Saturday 'to defend Islam against Christian proselytization', an event politicians and others fear will stoke religious tension in this multiracial country.

The Himpunan Sejuta Umat, or gathering of one million Muslim faithful, is organized by 25 non-governmental organizations, including the Malay supremacy group Perkasa.

It is calling for a new law to punish those who try to convert Muslims.

The rally comes after a controversial raid in August by the Selangor Islamic authorities on a church dinner attended by Muslims. The Sultan of Selangor later said the authorities did find evidence of attempts to convert Muslims but it was insufficient for legal action.

Many Muslims regard apostasy to be one of the gravest sins.



From the U.S.A.

Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.

The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.

“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.

The audience of Islamist advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.

“We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate,” Perez responded in an enthusiastic closing speech a few minutes after Aziz made her demands at the event.

“I sat here the entire time, taking notes,” Perez said. “I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”

The meeting at George Washington University showcased the expanding alliance between American progressives and Islamists, said Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor in New York.

Progressives “are making these Islamist groups into the [political] representatives of Muslims in the United States,” he told The Daily Caller. That elevation of Islamists to a leadership role sidelines the majority of American Muslims who don’t want Islamist leaders, as well as American Muslims who are female or gay, he said.

McCarthy investigated and prosecuted Egyptian-born Imam Omar Abdel-Rahman, dubbed “the blind sheik,” for urging Muslims to kill New Yorkers. Abdel-Rahman was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1996.

Progressives ally with the Islamic lobby because “they think it will be a political voting bloc that will be reliably Democratic,” said Robert Spencer, an author and expert on Islam.

None of the Islamist advocates of civil rights officials in attendance, including Perez, objected to Aziz’s call for free-speech restrictions.


Sharia law declaration raises concerns in new Libya

The announcement that Islamic sharia law will be the basis of legislation in newly liberated Libya has raised concerns, especially among women, despite Islamists insisting moderation will prevail.

Interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said on Sunday, during his speech to the nation in Benghazi to formally declare the country's liberation from the ousted regime of Moammer Kadhafi, that sharia would be Libya's principal law.

"Any law that violates sharia is null and void legally," he said, citing as an example the law on marriage passed during the slain dictator's 42-year tenure that imposed restrictions on polygamy, which is permitted in Islam.

Italian priest shot dead in North Cotabato

COTABATO, Philippines—An Italian Catholic priest who spent three decades working in the violence-plagued southern Philippines was shot dead inside his church compound on Monday, his superiors said.

Fausto Tentorio was the third member of the Vatican-run Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions to have been killed since 1985 on Mindanao, a vast island home to Muslim separatists, Al-Qaeda-linked militants and other armed groups.

Indonesia: About '1.8 million people' have terror links

Jakarta, 12 Oct. (AKI) - About 1.8 million of Indonesia's 246 million people have potential links to terrorism, according to the country's anti-terror chief.

"The number is this. More or less 1.8 million people take part in terrorist networks," said Ansyaad Mbai., who heads Indonesia's National Anti-Terrorism Agency, or BNPT, speaking during a panel discussion in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Indonesia, world's most populous Muslim country, is combating Al-Qaeda linked terrorists whose most notorious attack was in Bali in 2002 when 200 people died in an attack by the Jemaah Islamiyah terror group. The country is also fighting a separatist movement in the Aceh region of northern Sumatra.

Muslim Brotherhood Aims for Islamic Egyptian State

Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sobhi Saleh wants Sharia in Egypt claiming it is the "best system" for Muslims and non-Muslims;


Coptic Christian Student Murdered By Classmates for Wearing a Cross

Today the parents of the 17-year-old Christian student Ayman Nabil Labib, broke their silence, confirming that their son was murdered on October 16, in "cold blood because he refused to take off his crucifix as ordered by his Muslim teacher." Nabil Labib, the father, said in a taped video interview with Copts United NGO, that his son had a cross tattooed on his wrist as per Coptic tradition, as well as another cross which he wore under his clothes.

Both parents confirmed that Ayman's classmates, who were present during the assault and whom they met at the hospital and during the funeral, said that while Ayman was in the classroom he was told to cover up his tattooed wrist cross. He refused and defiantly got out the second cross which he wore under his shirt. "The teacher nearly chocked by son and some Muslim students joined in the beating," said his mother.


Top Muslim Declares All Christians ‘Infidels’

To what extent was Egypt’s Maspero massacre, wherein the military literally mowed down Christian Copts protesting the ongoing destruction of their churches, a product of anti-Christian sentiment?
A video of Egypt’s grand mufti,  Sheikh Ali Gomaa (or Gom’a), which began circulating weeks before the massacre, helps elucidate.  While holding that Muslims may coexist with Christians (who, as dhimmis, have rights), Gomaa categorized Christians as kuffar — “infidels” — a word that connotes “enemies,” “evil-doers,” and every bad thing to Muslim ears.
After quoting Quran 5:17, “Infidels are those who declare God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary,” he expounded by saying any association between a human and God (in Arabic, shirk) is the greatest sin: “Whoever thinks the Christ is God, or the Son of God, not symbolically — for we are all sons of God — but attributively, has rejected the faith which God requires for salvation,” thereby becoming an infidel.


Egyptian Sheikh issues fatwa prohibiting votes for Christian, secular candidates

CARIO: Mohammad Amer, a Salafi Sheikh in Damanhur, Egypt, issued a fatwa prohibiting votes for any Christian, secular or liberal candidate, as well as any Muslim candidate who does not pray daily or call for the implementation of Shariah law.

The fatwa also prohibited voting for any former member of the dissolved National Democratic Party (NDP), associated with the regime of deposed President Hosni Mubarak, with the exception of a few “honorable” candidates.

Amer claimed that voting for any such candidate would constitute a grave sin.


Algeria: Christians arrested for proselytism during mass

(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, NOVEMBER 1 - Five men were arrested by Algerian police for proselytism during a mass in a village in the wilaya of El Tarf, according to the website of the Liberté newspaper. The men were arrested in line with measures issued by the general state prosecutor at the court of El Tarf.
As more and more of these countries adapt sharia law, Christians will be in more and more danger.  As Sharia continues to grow the entire world will be in more danger. 
Most non Muslims have no idea what Sharia really is.  To many believe its merely an ancient law and means nothing anymore.  Unfortunatly many muslims strongly disagree.  They sincerely believe Sharia is the law all should live under.  Here are a tiny fraction of some of the Sharia Laws:

On apostates:

  • Someone raised among Muslims who denies the obligatoriness of the prayer, zakat, fasting Ramadan, the pilgrimage, or the unlawfulness of wine and adultery, or denies something else upon which there is scholarly consensus (ijma’, def:b7) and which is necessarily known as being of the religion (N: necessarily known meaning things that any Muslim would know about if asked) thereby becomes an unbeliever (kafir) and is executed for his unbelief (O: if he does not admit he is mistaken and acknowledge the Obligatoriness or unlawfulness of that which there is scholarly consensus upon. As for if he denies the obligatoriness of something there is not consensus upon, then he is not adjudged an unbeliever). f1.3
  • The following are not subject to retaliation: … (3) a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences); o1.2
  • When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. o8.1
  • In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed. o8.2

On jihad:

  • The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High, “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29) o9.8
  • The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya)) o9.9
  • A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it. o10.1
  • As for personal booty, anyone who, despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other. o10.2
This is what is being taught in Mosques all over the USA, and all over the world! 


 

American Politicians must wake up.  They have to stop worrying about being labeled as a racist or bigot and pass ANTI-SHARIA Laws.  The Clergy MUST wake up.  We must begin speaking out about the EVILS of Sharia from the Pulpits.

Christians are dying for Jesus everyday under Sharia.  They are treated as second class citizens.  Imprisoned, tortured, raped, robbed all under the banner of Sharia.  We MUST wake up and stop the spread of this EVIL SCOURGE!

17 Year Old Christian Beheaded for Allah. Why?

The following article from Compass Direct News is more evidence of what happens to Christians at the hands of Islam everyday.  As he was getting ready for school this 17 year old young man was attacked and executed in his own home, his crime?  Following Jesus Christ!!! 

Where is the outrage from Christian community?

If Muslims who do these kinds of things are truly a "very small minority of Muslims who misunderstand the Qu'ran" where is the outrage from the Muslim community?

I Pray for this world and the times we are living in.

Please read the article below my comments in blue.

Islamic Extremists in Somalia Behead 17-year-old Christian
Al Shabaab militants monitored home Bible studies of boy’s family.
Militants from the Islamic extremist al Shabaab beheaded a 17-year-old Somali Christian near Mogadishu last month, a journalist in the Somali capital told Compass.


The militants, who have vowed to rid Somalia of Christianity, killed Guled Jama Muktar on Sept. 25 in his home near Deynile, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Mogadishu. The Islamic extremist group had been monitoring his family since the Christians arrived in Somalia from Kenya in 2008, said the source in Mogadishu, who requested anonymity.


The Islamic militants, who are fighting the transitional government for control of the country, knew from their observations of the family that they were Christians, the source said.


“I personally know this family as Christians who used to have secret Bible meetings in their house,” he said.


Based on talks with the boy’s parents and their neighbors, the source said al Shabaab members arrived at Muktar’s home at 6 a.m., when his parents, whose names are withheld for security reasons, were already at work at their retail space at the Hamarweyne market on the outskirts of Mogadishu.


The extremists found Muktar as he was preparing to go to school, he said.


“The neighbors heard screaming coming from the house, and then it immediately stopped,” the source said. “After awhile, they saw a white car leaving the homestead.”


The neighbors informed the parents, who hurriedly returned home from their market stall. They buried their son’s body quickly, fearing the militants would kill them as well, returned to their market space and then fled to an unknown destination, the source said.


“When the incident happened, the parents called to tell me that their son had been killed and that they feared for their lives,” the source said. “Since then, I have not heard from them.”


On the outskirts of Hudur City in Bakool region in southwestern Somalia, a kidnapped Christian convert from Islam was found decapitated on Sept. 2. Juma Nuradin Kamil was forced into a car by three suspected Islamic extremists from the al Shabaab terrorist group on Aug. 21, area sources said. After members of his community thoroughly combed the area looking for him, at 2 p.m. on Sept. 2 one of them found Kamil’s body dumped on a street.


Muslim extremists from al Shabaab, which has ties to al Qaeda, control the area some 400 kilometers (249 miles) from Mogadishu.


A Christian who saw Kamil’s body said it bore the marks of an al Shabaab killing, according to a leader in Somalia’s underground church who lives in another city.


“It is usual for the al Shabaab to decapitate those they suspect to have embraced the Christian faith, or sympathizers of western ideals,” the leader said.


With estimates of al Shabaab’s size ranging from 3,000 to 7,000, the insurgents seek to impose a strict version of sharia (Islamic law), but the government in Mogadishu fighting to retain control of the country treats Christians little better than the al Shabaab extremists do. While proclaiming himself a moderate, President Sheikh Sharif Sheik Ahmed has embraced a version of sharia that mandates the death penalty for those who leave Islam.


Al Shabaab was among several splinter groups that emerged after Ethiopian forces removed the Islamic Courts Union, a group of sharia courts, from power in Somalia in 2006. Al Shabaab has been designated a terrorist organization by several western governments.


In the Lower Shabele region of Somalia earlier this year, two Muslim extremists murdered a member of a secret Christian community, sources said. An area source told Compass two al Shabaab militants shot 21-year-old Hassan Adawe Adan in Shalambod town after entering his house on April 18.


In Warbhigly village on the outskirts of Mogadishu, a mother of four was killed for her Christian faith on Jan. 7 by Islamic extremists from al Shabaab, a relative said. The relative, who requested anonymity, said Asha Mberwa, 36, was killed when the Islamic extremists cut her throat in front of villagers who came out of their homes as witnesses.


Following the Oct. 13 kidnapping of two Spanish aid workers from a refugee camp in Dadaab, on the Kenyan border with Somalia, and the kidnapping and murder of foreigners at tourist sites, Kenya on Sunday (Oct. 16) began air strikes on al Shabaab territory in southern Somalia. Kenya Television reported yesterday that Kenyan armed forces had killed more than 100 al Shabaab militants in Kismayo in southern Somalia.

Defend Freedom: Speed Bumps

Defend Freedom: Speed Bumps: The initial intent was to have the new Defend Freedom ( all the blogs and internet radio show ) ready for relaunch by the end of thi...

This is an excellent new site by our friend and fellow Patriot Jarrad Winter.

Murdered by Islam!

Mansuur Mohammed a Christian convert was beheaded by Sunni Muslims who recited the Koran

Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

What will  it take to wake Christians up?  What will it take to wake up the Western Governments?  How much more death, destruction, and sacrifice before people realize the EVIL that IS Islam?

These aren't isolated events.  Sadly they happen daily.  Our mainstream media outlets tell us Islam is a beautiful Religion, just misunderstood.  Our politcal leaders tell us Islam is a great religion that has simply been hijacked by a few radical fundalmentalists. To many of our liberal "Christian" Leaders tell us Islam is simply another of the Abrahamic Religions, that Muslims, Christians and Jews all worship the same God.  Islamic Apologists tell us they are peaceful and tolerant and that the Qu'ran says they should accept Christians and Jews.  That the "radicals" and the Islamaphobes, simply take verses from the Qu'ran out of context, or that you can only understand the Qu'ran in Arabic. Then when pressed on the facts, and the Islamic Apologists runs out of excuses inevitably they say Christians have corrupted The Holy Bible, and Jews have corrupted the Torah.

I tell you there is nothing peaceful or tolerant about Islam.  Fortunatly you don't have to take my word for it.  The evidence is very abundant and clear. You can read the Qu'ran.  It only takes a couple of days to read it from cover to cover.  You can look at any of the four Islamic Jurisprudence ( sharia law) Manuals,  I prefer the Reliance of The Traveler, much longer than the Qu'ran, but very, very eye opening.  You can do a little historical research, for 1,400 years Islam has tried to rule the world through violence, brutality and hate. You can study your Holy Bible.  You can read the news reports. you can do all of the above.

Of course if you choose to educate yourselves just by news reports you will have to get away from the liberal biased mainstream media.  Check the news out at the International Christian Concern, The Voice of the Martyrs, The Christian Post, etc... what you will learn will touch your heart.  Check out some of the secular sites on the web: Logan's Warning, Fatwa on Islam, The Religion of Peace.com, The Investigative Project on Terrorism, Creeping Sharia, Jihad Watch etc... you will be amazed at what you will find.

Go on you tube look at the video's of Muslims like Dr Mark Gabriel and so many others who have found Jesus and left the EVIL CULT of Islam.  Their stories will amaze you!  They have risked everything for their love of Jesus!

After coffee and Bible Study in the mornings I turn my computer on and begin going through my emails and I usually weep.  I Pray.  I meditate.  I Pray for the Christians I have received emails about or pictures and video's of Christians who were killed, beat, tortured, raped, or imprisoned all in the name of Islam.  I ask God for guidance over which pictures to share.  I don't want to make our Christian Brother's or Sister's afraid of Muslims and not share the Word of Jesus with them.  I don't want to show too much and make people hate Muslims, only the EVIL CULT of Islam.  How can people see pictures like this and not realize how EVIL Islam is?


All of that dark area in front of the building is Nigerian Christians burned alive at Church by Islamists.  Their crime?  They believed in Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

And for those Pastor's who open the doors to the House of God to Islam I ask you how can YOU read the Bible and think its ok to participate in the Interfaith Coalition that Islamic Leaders are advocating?  They want you to deny The Holy Trinity?  How can you even think of doing that?  How can you look at pictures of Christians like these:

Mourning at the coffin of Coptic Christian Mina Demian, killed in clashes with soldiers and riot police in Cairo on Sunday.
Mourning at the coffin of Coptic Christian Mina Demian, killed in clashes with soldiers and riot police in Cairo on Sunday.

Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

and place Qu'rans in the Pews of God's House?

Matthew 24:11(KJV)
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 


 How can you look at pictures like this:                            

Coptic Christians


Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

and allow Imams into God's House to lead Prayers?

Matthew 24:11(KJV)
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 

My fellow Christians, how can you see pictures like this:

Coptic Christians


Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

and not be touched?  These are modern day Martyrs.  Martryed by the EVIL CULT of Islam!

The Boko Haram extremist group killed many Christians in northern Nigeria.


Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 



Sialkot Brothers killed in Pakistan.  Their crime?  Being Christians!

Matthew 24:8-9(KJV)
All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 

How can we forget the 323 hostages killed in the school in Russia by Islamic Terrorists?  156 of which were innocent children!!  Can you even begin to imagine the terror in these childrens hearts as they sat underneath this basketball goal wired with explosives as heavily armed, masked terrorists surrounded them?  Can you imagine the fear their families felt as they waited for news?  Can you imagine the heartbreak and sorrow of the families who lost one or more children in this EVIL act?


When I speak at different Churches, for Christian Men's groups etc..., I'm often asked Pastor what can I/we do?  There are several things that MUST be done.

1.  Start your day in Prayer.  Pray for the 200 million Christians who live under persecution and the over 300 who are killed everyday.

2.  Pray for Muslims to leave the EVIL CULT of Islam and find Jesus Christ.

3.  Educate yourself about the EVIL CULT of Islam.

4.  Start Prayer groups in your Church to Pray for persecuted Christians and for Muslims to be led away from Islam.

5.  Share the Word of God with any Muslim you come in contact with.

6.  Support with Prayer and finances Missionary's who spread The Gospel to Muslims.

7.  Support counter terrorism efforts by Law Enforcement Agencies.

8.  Support our Military.

9.  Push for and support anti-Sharia Law Legislation.

10.  Hold Political AND Religious Leaders accountable.  Religous Leaders must educate themselves about Islam and begin speaking out against it.  College campus's, inner cities, and prisons are the most fertile recruiting grounds for Islam.  Churches MUST establish EFFECTIVE outreach and Missions in these areas.  Politicians MUST be held accountable to do everything legally possible to stop the spread of this EVIL CULT.

We must wake up before its too late!

Forever in His Service,

Islam and Political Correctness and the Harm They Cause!

I have started reading Matthew 24:1-14 almost every morning to start my day.  I think this Scripture describes so closely the times we are living in.  Too many Christians being killed every day for their Faith.  Too many Christians being persecuted daily. Too many Preachers are not Preaching The Gospel!  To many Preachers are afraid if they Preach The Word of God they may offend a member!  Its way past time for these Preachers to stop being afraid of offending a member and start being afraid of offending God!  Brother's and Sister's if the Church you attend is more worried about being Politically Correct than Biblicly Correct GET OUT!!  Find you a God Fearing, Bible Believing Church Home!

Look and read of the examples below.  This is what Christians are enduring around the world daily!  While they endure this persecution, much of it at the hands of Islam, we have Church Leaders in the USA putting Qu'rans in the Pews.  Allowing Imams to have Prayers, to LEAD Prayer's in Christian Churches! How can they?



Matthew 24:1-14(KJV)
And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.


I think every Christian should read the above passage every morning to start their day.  It is a great reminder!  Jesus WILL be returning!  Jesus tells us none will know the exact day or time of His return and I certainly don't pretend to know, however I feel the signs show His return may be sooner than many think.  Are you ready?

Today, lets just look at one sign Jesus gives us: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Copts in Egypt

I know the picture is graphic and will disturb many, but Christians MUST wake up to what is going on around the world!

Look at this excerpt from an article from The Assemblies of God World Missions:

The attention of the Christian world is currently focused on a pastor imprisoned in Iran who has been sentenced to death for his faith. We pray the authorities in that country will free him and return him to his family and his church.
But this pastor’s plight is not an isolated incident. According to Christians in Crisis International, 200 million Christians daily face persecution. Every day, on average, more than 300 people are killed for their faith in Jesus Christ.

More than 300 Christians per day killed for their Faith!! 200 Million face persecution DAILY!!!  This persecution includes but is NOT limited to rape, torture, imprisonment, slavery, kidnapping, theft, and forced conversions.  Much of this happens in Islamic dominated countries under Sharia Law.

From The Christian Post and ICC:


Advocacy Group: Rape Often Used to Persecute Christian Girls in Pakistan


Wed, Sep. 28, 2011 Posted: 01:32 PM EDT

A Christian teen was reportedly raped in Pakistan by three Muslim men while she was working, it emerged Tuesday and her case, according to an international advocacy group, is part of a troubling trend in which Muslim men use sexual assault as a weapon against Christian girls.
The International Christian Concern (ICC), an advocacy group, reported the event on their website Tuesday, after an investigation. Regional Manager for South Asia, Jonathan Racho, told The Christian Post that one of the organization’s reporters talked to the young woman in person.
The incident took place on Sept. 16, ICC has established. The 18-year-old girl, whose name was not revealed for security reasons, was working alone on a Muslim farm in the Village of Muphat Pura, in Kasur district. At 5 p.m. local time, three relatives of her Muslim employer came to her and allegedly raped her.
Later, they warned her not to report the rape to anyone or else they would kill her and her brother, who also works on the farm, the teen told ICC.
"I am very sad about what happened to me," she reportedly said.
She explained that if she reports this case, it will be difficult for her and her family to live in the area.
"It's impossible for her to do [report the rape]," Racho told CP. "They have already warned her not to tell to the police. In Pakistan, when Christians bring their case to court or to the police there is a reluctance from the government to protect them."
The teen left the farm where she was working, according to Racho.
This case is not an isolated one, as many Christian girls are being raped by Muslim men in Pakistan, according to ICC.
"Rape has been used as weapon of persecution against Christian girls in Pakistan, a country where Christians are treated as third-class citizens," Racho said in a report on ICC's website. "In the Muslim majority country, Christian girls are particularly vulnerable to these types of crimes because Muslim authorities are reluctant to protect them when their rights are being violated by Muslims."
The president of the Pakistan Christian Congress, Nazir Bhatti, told ICC that the incidents of rape and enforced conversion of Christian women to Islam are rising every year. He added that 99.9 percent of rape cases in Pakistan are not being reported.
"If a Muslim man rapes a Christian girl, then he easily forces her to convert to Islam, marries her and covers up his heinous crime of rape under Islamic law," Bhatti told ICC.
CP reported on Sept. 26 that a Christian mother of five was allegedly raped by two Muslim men in mid-September. After she pressed charges, local Islamists reportedly threatened to harm her family unless the charges were dropped.
In January, CP wrote about a Pakistani Muslim who allegedly confessed to sexually assaulting five Christian girls, and then reportedly raped a sixth one, a 10-year-old Catholic girl in Punjab Province.

More from the I.C.C.

 recently spoke with an individual who witnessed Pastor Ojih’s faithfulness to Christ in his final hours before he was killed for refusing to convert to Islam. We’ve only edited the interview slightly, so that you could read the story in the eyewitness’ own words: Please read!

ICC: What was the initiation the Muslims were forcing Ojih to do? Can you describe it?

Witness: The initiation is not only Pastor George Ojih, it’s general—something they ask all the Christians. If you change your religion, they would not hurt you; but if you not change, then you should go the other side (there were two groups of people-those willing to convert and those refusing). That was the threat. We were lying down on the ground flat, facing the sun. So they tie our legs and our hands together. They say, “if you want to go for Christ, go this side, if you want to go for Mohammed, remain where you are.” Then we move away from where they put us to those that go for Christ. And we’re few. I think it was 8 or 9 by then. So when we are there, they separated us. We are there until they capture other people. Because I was wearing white, they ask, “If you want to go for Christ, go and meet that person with white cloth. And if you want to Islamize yourself, you should stand here and remain here.” That’s how they divided us.

Then later on, to those that were together initially when they capture us, they now ask them that they should go because they accept to follow Mohammed. They were teaching them how to pray, how to do ablution, how to do all sorts of things.

ICC: Can you describe the spot where they interrogated Pastor Ojih?

Witness: They asked Pastor George Ojih to change to Islam. He refused to change. Another believer was with Pastor Ojih; but when he discovered that changing his religion will save his life, he now decided to change in order for them to release him, his wife, and his child. So (this other believer) did all what Boko Haram they asked him to do. He converted to Islam and he confessed it before the church.

Boko Haram then asked Pastor Ojih him to bend downward facing the floor. Somebody come rushed at him with a machete, come from behind and sliced his neck through the back. When he sliced his neck, now, Pastor George Ojih started struggling and he lived a long time before the body become relaxed. Then he died at the railroad tracks near their camp.

ICC: Were there any witnesses?

Witness: Really, there are many eyewitnesses. Both the Christian and the Muslim that confess, the Christian that confess that they deny Christ … it was an open place where they saw all these things happen.

ICC: How did the Muslims react once Ojih was killed?

Witness: I heard that, when he was killed, they were celebrating.

They now triggered their gun, shouting their normal chanting—Allahu Akbar (God is Great.

Pastor George Ojih 












It breaks my heart to think of what Pastor Ojih had to endure!
It breaks my heart to think of what his family has had to endure since his death!  I know Pastor Ojih has a special place in Heaven.  I know Jesus was waiting and said what we all hope to hear from Jesus, "Well done my true and faithful servant", still, knowing how he spent his last hours on earth is heartbreaking.  When I think of Pastor Ojih and the other Martyrs pictured here I keep thinking of Jesus's warning:  " Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. "

I also think of verse 11 when Jesus warns us: "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."  Today in New York City, NY, a Pastor had a Muslim and a Buddhist say Prayers at the Church he Pastors.  I think how much that must hurt Jesus.  How much that must hurt all the Martyrs like Pastor Ojih and all the others who have laid down their lives for Christ.  How much it must hurt those 200 Million Christians a day who are persecuted, and those over 300 a day who are killed for their Faith.  All in the name of Political Correctness, or "social justice."

Its past time for these mis-guided Church leaders to begin paying attention to God's Word!  Its time to be Biblicly Correct NOT Politically Correct!!  Please Pray for these mis-guided Pastors, and these persecuted Christians!

NYC: ISLAMIC FRIDAY PRAYER AT WALL STREET!

NYC: ISLAMIC FRIDAY PRAYER AT WALL STREET!  ( Click on this link to read Logan's Warning article)

Where are the Christian Pastors in or near NYC?

The Occupy Wall Street protest is full of impressionable young people, as well as a few older people, searching for happiness. Looking to fill a void in their life. The pictures, video's and reports say the area is full of drugs, sex etc..., why is it not full of Christians witnessing to them? Why aren't Christians there passing out Bibles and sharing the Word and Love of Jesus Christ? The Islamists are there. Do the Christians want to just surrender this group of people to the EVIL CULT of Islam?

There are more than 7,000 Christian Churches in NYC. This doesn't count the Churches that are not in NYC, but within easy driving distance. If only every Pastor would show up they would far outnumber the protesters and the Islamists. If they would each do as Jesus did and send a delegation of 12 there would be more than 84,000 Christians passing out Holy Bibles and sharing The Word of God!! How amazing that would be!! How many souls would be won for Christ!!

Instead, just as at the Muslim day Parade 2 weeks ago, these Christian Leaders will watch the news reports, shake their heads and say what is this country coming to? How much longer is God going to allow people to turn their backs on Him? Some will get in the Pulpit Sunday and talk about the event and what a shame it is. How much this kind of event must hurt Jesus after all He endured for us. Instead of complaing, DO SOMETHING!

Where are you Men and Women of God?!!! What part of Mark 16: 12-16 do you not understand?

Mark 16:12-16
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

  Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.  These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
  Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
  He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.  Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.


As Christians, as Church Leaders we are COMMANDED to go out and Preach The Gospel to every creature! What an opportunity you have!! Will you waste it? This is a time when you CAN make a difference! I challenge you! Put on The Armour of God and go forth and Boldly Proclaim The Good News!!

In His Service Forever,

De-Bunking a Common Word Part 2

New York City, New York

About a month ago I told you all about a letter from a group of Muslim Leaders and Scholars titled "A Common Word Between Us".  They sent this letter to a lot of Christian and Jewish Leaders in an attempt to show Islam, Christianity, and Judaism have a lot in common. Nonsense.  As I told you then I am going through their letter to point out the falsehoods and half truths.  Do NOT allow yourselves to be deceived.  Islam has NOTHING in common with Christianity!

They begin their letter with an overview of what is in the letter.  This is it:


In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
A Common Word between Us and You
(Summary and Abridgement)
Muslims and Christians together make up well over half of the world’s population. Without peace and justice between these two religious communities, there can be no meaningful peace in the world. The future of the world depends on peace between Muslims and Christians.
The basis for this peace and understanding already exists. It is part of the very foundational principles of both faiths: love of the One God, and love of the neighbour. These principles are found over and over again in the sacred texts of Islam and Christianity. The Unity of God, the necessity of love for Him, and the necessity of love of the neighbour is thus the common ground between Islam and Christianity. The following are only a few examples:
Of God’s Unity, God says in the Holy Qur’an: Say: He is God, the One! / God, the Self-Sufficient Besought of all! (Al-Ikhlas, 112:1-2). Of the necessity of love for God, God says in the Holy Qur’an: So invoke the Name of thy Lord and devote thyself to Him with a complete devotion (Al-Muzzammil, 73:8). Of the necessity of love for the neighbour, the Prophet Muhammad r said: “None of you has faith until you love for your neighbour what you love for yourself.”
In the New Testament, Jesus Christ u said: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. / And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. / And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31)
In the Holy Qur’an, God Most High enjoins Muslims to issue the following call to Christians (and Jews—the People of the Scripture):
Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to a common word between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside God. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him).
The words: we shall ascribe no partner unto Him relate to the Unity of God, and the words: worship none but God, relate to being totally devoted to God. Hence they all relate to the First and Greatest Commandment. According to one of the oldest and most authoritative commentaries on the Holy Qur’an the words: that none of us shall take others for lords beside God, mean ‘that none of us should obey the other in disobedience to what God has commanded’. This relates to the Second Commandment because justice and freedom of religion are a crucial part of love of the neighbour.
Thus in obedience to the Holy Qur’an, we as Muslims invite Christians to come together with us on the basis of what is common to us, which is also what is most essential to our faith and practice: the Two Commandments of love.
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful,
And may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad
A COMMON WORD BETWEEN US AND YOU

For those who don't have a basic knowledge of Islam, what they are attempting to do is to DENY the Holy Trinity.  The very foundation of The Christian Faith.  The other attempt is to say Islam accepts Christians and Jews and their right to Worship as The Bible and The Torah commands. NOT TRUE!  Lets take a look at what the Qu'ran says about "People of The Book", (Christians and Jews) :

The Qur'an:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Qur'an(5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."
 
Qur'an (5:80) - "You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide."  Those Muslims who befriend unbelievers will abide in hell.
 
Qur'an (3:28) - "Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them..."  This last part means that the Muslim is allowed to feign friendship if it is of benefit.  Renowned scholar Ibn Kathir states that "believers are allowed to show friendship outwardly, but never inwardly."
Qur'an (3:118) - "O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people, they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you, if you will understand."  This verse not only warns Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends, but it establishes the deep-seated paranoia that the rest of the world is out to get them.
 
Qur'an (9:23) - "O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers"  Even family members are not to be taken as friends if they do not accept Islam.  (This is the mildest interpretation of this verse from the 9th Sura, which also advocates "slaying the unbeliever wherever ye find them").
 
Qur'an (53:29) - "Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world."
 
Qur'an (3:85) - "And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers."
 
Qur'an (3:10) - "(As for) those who disbelieve, surely neither their wealth nor their children shall avail them in the least against Allah, and these it is who are the fuel of the fire."  Those who do not believe in Muhammad are but fuel for the fire of Hell (also 66:6, 2:24. 21:98).
 
Qur'an (7:44) - "The Companions of the Garden will call out to the Companions of the Fire: "We have indeed found the promises of our Lord to us true: Have you also found Your Lord's promises true?" They shall say, "Yes"; but a crier shall proclaim between them: "The curse of Allah is on the wrong-doers"  Muslims in heaven will amuse themselves by looking down on non-Muslims in Hell and mocking them while they are being tortured (see 22:19-22.
 
Qur'an (1:5-7) - "Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray"  This is a prayer that Muslims are supposed to repeat each day.  "Those who earn Thine anger" specifically refers to Jews and "those who go astray" refers to Christians (see Bukhari (12:749).

The Hadith are writings from people who were close to Muhammed, who witnesses how he lived, what he did, and what he said. ALL Muslims are required to live their lives as Muhammed lived his.  Here are just a FEW of the many writings from the Hadith about how Muhammed felt about Muslims taking non-Muslims for friends:

From the Hadith:

Muslim (1:417) - Taken to mean that one's own relatives should not be taken as friends if they are not Muslim.

Abu Dawud (41:4815) - "The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man follows the religion of his friend; so each one should consider whom he makes his friend."

Abu Dawud (41:4832) - The Messenger of Allah [said] "Do not keep company with anyone but a believer and do not let anyone eat your food but one who is pious."

Bukhari (59:572) - "O you who believe! Take not my enemies And your enemies as friends offering them (Your) love even though they have disbelieved in that Truth (i.e. Allah, Prophet Muhammad and this Quran) which has come to you."

Ishaq 262 - "Some Muslims remained friends with the Jews, so Allah sent down a Qur'an forbidding them to take Jews as friends. From their mouths hatred has already shown itself and what they conceal is worse"

Ishaq 252 - The story of a young man who converts to Islam after hearing Muhammad.  He then tells his own father that he can no longer have anything to do with him because, "I have become a Muslim and follow the religion of Muhammad."  (To maintain a relationship with his son, the father "converts" as well).  This is an important passage because it establishes that the principle of shunning is based merely on the status of non-Muslims as unbelievers, not on their relations toward Muslims.  In this case, the father desperately loved his son and meant him no harm.

As you can see from the few things I've posted so far Muslim's are forbidden to take Christians and Jews as their friends.  There is much, much more to many to list all of them, but here are a few more you must know:

Quran (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]... but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."  There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not (Muslims in Medina were not under attack).  However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse.  The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of "persecution" (a qualification that is ambiguous at best).  The second is that fighting may persist until "religion is for Allah."  The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.

Quran (2:244) - "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."

Quran (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."  Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time.  From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."

Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority".  This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be 'joining companions to Allah').

Quran (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."  The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter.  These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah.  Here is the theological basis for today's suicide bombers.

Quran (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"

Quran (4:89) - "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."

Quran (4:95) - "Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-"  This passage criticizes "peaceful" Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah's eyes.  It also demolishes the modern myth that "Jihad" doesn't mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle.  Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption.  (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man's protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

Quran (4:104) - "And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain..."  Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

Quran (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"  No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

Quran (8:15) - "O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey's end."

Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"  From the historical context we know that the "persecution" spoken of here was simply the refusal by the Meccans to allow Muhammad to enter their city and perform the Haj.  Other Muslims were able to travel there, just not as an armed group, since Muhammad declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction.  The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad's intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did).  Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until "religion is only for Allah."  According to Ibn Ishaq (324), Muhammad justified the violence further by explaining that "Allah must have no rivals."

Quran (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."

Quran (8:59-60) - "And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah's Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape.  Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy."

Quran (8:65) - "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight..."

Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."  According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam.  Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.

Quran (9:14) - "Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace..."

Quran (9:20) - "Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah's way are of much greater worth in Allah's sight. These are they who are triumphant."  The "striving" spoken of here is Jihad.

Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."  "People of the Book" refers to Christians and Jews.  This was one of the final "revelations" from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad's companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years.  Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

Quran (9:38-39) - "O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place."  This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

Quran (9:41) - "Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew."  See also the verse that follows (9:42) - "If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them"  This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).

Quran (9:73) - "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination."  Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter.  It also explains why today's devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

Quran (9:88) - "But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper."

Quran (9:111) - "Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme."

Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

This is but a small amount of such surahs in the Qur'an.  There are at least 109 such verses in the Qur'an and many, many more in the different Hadiths!

Islamic scholars will try to say these verses are taken out of context. Abdullah Yousef  Ali's translation of the Qur'an is only 463 small pages of very easy reading.  You can get it on Amazon for $3.99 and read it yourself.  You can purchase the Hadith of  Bukhari Volumes 1-4 from Amazon for less than $10.00 it is 702 pages, again very easy reading.  When you read it remember what you are reading are the things Muhammed did and said, as told by eye witnesses.

Also you would do well to remember the difference in what God says about lying verses what the Qur'an and the Hadith say about lying:

John 8:42-47

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

The Children of the Devil
 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. 43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

Isaiah 28:14-17

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

 14 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers
   who rule this people in Jerusalem.
15 You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
   with the grave we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
   it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
   and falsehood our hiding place.”
 16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
   “See, I lay a stone in Zion,
   a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
   the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
17 I will make justice the measuring line
   and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
   and water will overflow your hiding place.

Proverbs 14:24-26

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

 24 The wealth of the wise is their crown,
   but the folly of fools yields folly.
 25 A truthful witness saves lives,
   but a false witness is deceitful.
 26 He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress,
   and for his children it will be a refuge.

Jeremiah 7:6-10

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
6 if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, 7 then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your forefathers for ever and ever. 8 But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless.
 9 “‘Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, 10 and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”—safe to do all these detestable things?

Psalm 5:6

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

6 You destroy those who tell lies;
   bloodthirsty and deceitful men
   the LORD abhors.

1 Peter 3:10

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
10 For,
   “Whoever would love life
   and see good days
must keep his tongue from evil
   and his lips from deceitful speech.

Proverbs 24:28

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

 28 Do not testify against your neighbor without cause,
   or use your lips to deceive.

Sorry I can't get the font to go off of bold!  As you know I could go on and on with Holy Scriptures that tell us God hates a lie.  In contrast lets see what the Qur'an and Hadith say about lying:

Qur'an (16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
 
Qur'an (3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to "guard themselves." 
 
Qur'an (9:3) - "...Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters..."  The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture.  They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.
 
Qur'an (40:28) - A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must "hide his faith" among those who are not believers.
 
Qur'an (2:225) - "Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts"  The context of this remark is marriage, which explains why Sharia allows spouses to lie to each other for the greater good.
 
Qur'an (66:2) - "Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths"
 
Qur'an (3:54) - "And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers."  The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit.  If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. (See also 8:30 and 10:21)
 
Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be "compelled" to deceive others for a greater purpose.
 
The Hadith:
 
Bukhari (52:269) - "The Prophet said, 'War is deceit.'"  The context of this is thought to be the murder of Usayr ibn Zarim and his thirty unarmed men by Muhammad's men after he "guaranteed" them safe passage.

Bukhari (49:857) - "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar."  Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.

Bukhari (84:64-65) - Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an "enemy."

Muslim (32:6303) - "...he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to bring reconciliation between them)."

Bukhari (50:369) - Recounts the murder of a poet, Ka'b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad's insistence.  The men who volunteered for the assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka'b's trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad.  This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.

Last but most definitely not least: 

From Islamic Law:

Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746 - 8.2) -  "Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it.  When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible (N:i.e. when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory... it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression...

"One should compare the bad consequences entailed by lying to those entailed by telling the truth, and if the consequences of telling the truth are more damaging, one is entitled to lie.

I have over 50 books in my library on Islam.  I have read and studied every word of each of them.  I don't say this to pretend to be an Islamic Scholar, only to recommend anyone who really wants to learn about the EVIL CULT of Islam should in addition to The Qur'an, or any books of the Hadith, you would do yourself a big favor by getting a copy of The Reliance of the Traveler.  This is the Sunni Muslim book of Law.  It will open your eyes like nothing else!

I hope this helps, I'll post part 3 next week.

In His Service!
