Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Remembering 9/11

Listen to today’s broadcast:

9-11TowersWednesday America will remember the terrible attack on the twin towers. It has been 12 years since Muslim terrorists hijacked planes, turned them into deadly missiles and flew them into our buildings killing over 3,000 people. America said it would never forget. Oh how quickly we have forgotten.

I do remember what happened on the day. That day changed my life. That is when I started studying to learn the truth about Islam. As I have said before, I decided to learn from the camel’s mouth, the Islamic scriptures and Mohammed’s own words. I didn’t want to know what others were saying about Islam, I wanted to know what Islam said about itself.

Because of my years of study on Islam I can say without a doubt that what happened on 9/11 was the direct consequence of the true teachings of Islam. This is not a perversion of Islam, this is the true nature of Islam. Those who follow the teachings of Islam will be militant people. They will want to destroy the non-believer.

The West will, one day, have to admit that this is the true nature of Islam. I wonder how much more bloodshed it will take to cause us to wake up to the fact that Islam is the enemy, not just a few radical terrorists.

As we remember this attack on Wednesday I will be in Washington DC. I will be reporting on this group who has organized a march on our capital. The audacity of these people is beyond my ability to understand. They are claiming that the, the Muslims, are the victims. We can’t let this go by without a challenge. If we remain silent our enemy will win the argument. We must not let them get away with this.

We will also be remembering the one year anniversary of the Benghazi attack which resulted in the death of US Ambassador Stevens and three. other American government workers. We still have had no real response even though the President promised swift justice. The news reporters have been able to talk to the perpetrators, but our government has not.All we have had from the government is a lot of confusion giving reason to believe there is something they don’t want us to know. Could I say “cover-up?”

Because of Islam we have been in a number of wars and conflicts. We have been involved in ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have had drone attacks in Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Bosnia, Albania, Kosovo, Liberia. We have had provocations where our interests were attacked in places like Iran (1979 hostages), Lebanon (Beirut Bombing of Marine Barracks), Kenya & Tanzania (Embassy Bombings), and Yemen (USS Cole). It looks like there will soon be another conflict in Syria, and one day, mark my words, in Iran.

All these incidents have a common denominator – Islam and cries of Allahu Akbar!!! My friends, those who want us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace need to wake up and look at the facts. The thing that shows the foolishness of those who refuse to believe that Islam is the problem is the fact that the Islamists proudly claim that these atrocities are the work of their hands and that they are just being faithful to the teachings of Islam.

The more I study the teachings of Islam from their own document, the more I see that the true face of Islam is violence, bloodshed, and death. No other conclusion is possible when we study the facts instead of the propaganda being spread by the apologists of Islam.

I am thankful today that I was born in a nation that was founded upon Christian principles. Because of this I was blessed to hear the preaching of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as a young child. I praise the Lord Jesus Christ for the joy I have in my salvation.

In America we are blessed to still have many Gospel preaching churches. We have many radio ministries preaching the truths of the Gospel.

It is a privilege to live in a nation where these truths are freely available. It is a joy to know that there is a way to have our sins forgiven. The Bible is clear.

We can have forgiveness: 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Our salvation is based on His works not ours – Titus 3:5-7 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

It is God’s grace that saves when it is received by faith, without our works: Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

We can become sons and daughters of God – 2 Corinthians 6:18 “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

We are justified by His grace and made heirs of God and of eternal life – Titus 3:7 “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

This is the message you will hear in a Gospel preaching church. You will hear that your sin makes you guilty before a holy God. You have a debt of sin which condemns you to eternal damnation. You will also here that there is a very simple solution. If you will humble yourself, repent, and put your trust (faith) in Jesus Christ as your Saviour you will receive forgiveness of sin and eternal life.

Jesus took our sin upon himself on the cross. He was made sin for us that we might be made righteous in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

HOWEVER, If you were to go to a mosque to hear the cleric preach from their scriptures and doctrines of Islam what message would you hear concerning the hope of Paradise (Heaven)? Here is what you will hear:

You will hear “be a good person and, maybe, at the end of your life Allah will have favor upon you and let you into Paradise.” They can only hope they are good enough, that they have been faithful enough in their prayers and their other duties to Islam for Allah to smile upon them and allow them into Paradise.

You may ask your cleric how you can ensure you will go to Paradise at the end of your life. He will respond, Then you must become a Shaheed.” A Shaheed is a martyr, one who dies in defense of Islam, one who give up his life fighting the unbelievers, killing the enemy, shedding his blood for the cause of Islam. That is the only way that a cleric can guarantee a Muslim that he will go to Paradise.

Let me read to you from the Hadith. It says “The martyr (shaheed) has seven blessings from Allah: he is forgiven from the moment his blood is first shed; he will be shown his place in Paradise; he will be spared the trial of the grave; and he will be secure on the Day of the Greatest Terror (the Day of Judgment); there will be placed on his head a crown of dignity, one ruby of which is better than this world and all that is in it; he will be married to seventy-two of AL-hoor AL-‘iyn (virgins); and he will be permitted to intercede for seventy of his relatives.”

This is what Islam has to offer a Muslim who wants to get tho Paradise. He must give his life for the cause of Islam. Then he can look forward, with lust, to an orgy in Paradise. The only other choice is to try to live a good enough life and hope, without assurance, that Allah will smile upon him and allow him into Paradise.

If you were to ask the cleric how to deal with your sin, with the guilt you feel for your sin, he would be forced to answer with silence. There is no help from Allah to overcome sin, no help with the guilt of sin, no help with the debt of sin, because there is nothing in their scriptures to deal with sin.

On the contrary, in a Gospel preaching church we will be taught that when we receive Christ, he washes away are sin, puts them as far away as the east is from the west, and remembers them no more.

We don’t have to hope about our eternal destiny as the Muslims do. We don’t have to destroy others to obtain Heaven.

Oh what a glorious God we have. We have a God who loves us and gives us a way of salvation that can be obtained by everyone.
