Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Why Evangelize Muslims – Part 2

Listen to today’s broadcast:

FOF - FALL SHARE-A-THON PICTURE - INTERNET VERSION.PDF_ProfileBefore I get into the second reason we must evangelize Muslims let me say a few words about our Fall Share-a-thon. We would like to again express our thanks to those of you who faithfully support this ministry. We would not be able to do what we do without you. Because of you we are able to broadcast the message of warning and resisting Islam, warning of the danger, and teaching Christians how to rescue Muslims from the oppression of Islam.

We also want to bring revival to North America. Our political leaders won’t save us because they don’t have the answer. The answer is not in the White House, it is in the church house. The real solution to the problem of Islam is to repent and get back to the God of the Bible. That is the message of this ministry. We are preaching this message around North America on the airways. We are only able to do it because of your support.

We started less than three years ago and I am amazed at the way God has blessed this ministry. I am amazed at the budget we are able to set and the things we are able to do. Again, it is because of your generosity and your sacrifice.

We try to limit the time we spend asking for your support. We try to limit it to just two weeks out of the year. In this Fall Share-a-thon we want to first raise $36,600 for our broadcasting budget. We would also like to raise funds for the production of some tracts for evangelizing Muslims. I am working on three tracts as I mentioned yesterday. We want these to be first class tracts that will be designed in a manner that will cause them to be read. The goal for this share-a-thon is to raise a total of $41,600 for both projects.

We have three ways you can help in this share-a-thon. They are listed here for your prayerful consideration:

The Army of Ten

Army of TENMany of you are already participating in this campaign and we hope to have 50 new participants join us this week. Those in this campaign give a monthly gift of $10 each month. If you call this week we will give you a set of 2 CD’s on Chrislam. This is a $30 value. The second CD has not been released yet so you will be the first to receive it. The first CD deals with the political side of Chrislam and we have talked about this issue before. The second CD deals with what is going on in the missions movement. It is also called the insider movement or the common word movement. In this CD I expose the error of this movement.

Sponsor A Day

Sponsor a DayIt costs us $200 a day to pay our broadcast bill. You can join this campaign by calling this week and giving a gift of $200 to sponsor one day of broadcasting. You can also join this campaign by giving a gift of $35 each month for 6 months.

If you join this campaign you will get the 2 CD set mentioned above and you will get John Guandolo’s book “Raising A Jihadi Generation.” This book is a new release, hot off the press. I was privileged to get a pre-production copy of the book. John asked me for my thoughts and comments.

John Guandolo is a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who served nearly seven years as an active duty Infantry/Reconnaissance officer in the United States Marine Corps. In 2006, he created and implemented the FBI’s first Counter terrorism Training/Education Program focusing on the Muslim Brotherhood and their subversive movement in the United States, Islamic Doctrine, and the global Islamic Movement. He was designated a “Subject Matter Expert” by FBI Headquarters. For his efforts, in 2007 Mr. Guandolo was presented the “Defender of the Homeland” Award by U.S. Senators John Kyl and Joseph Lieberman on behalf of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C.

This is a great resource which was written for law enforcement, intelligence, and military experts. It is an easy read, not filled with a lot of fluff.

If you want to give $200 but you don’t have it right now but you can do it in the next couple of months, call our call center and make a pledge and we will send you the gift also.

Sponsor A Week

Sponsor a WeekIn this campaign you give a lump sum o $1,000, or a monthly recurring gift of $167 for 6 months, or $250 for 4 months. If you join this campaign you will receive the 2 CD’s, John Guandolo’s book, and John Guandolo’s DVD “Understanding The Threat.” These three items are a $63 value.

These are our 3 different plans for 3 different budgets. If you are a person of means, if God has blessed you financially, you might be able to sponsor a week. You may not be able to sponsor a week, but you may be able to sponsor a day. Or you may not be able to sponsor a day, but you can support this ministry with a $10 monthly gift. All of you, no matter what you are able to do, are equally important and equally appreciated by this ministry.

One more thing about giving to this ministry. Don’t give unless you feel that God is leading you to do so. Don’t let an emotional appeal cause you to give something that you will later regret. Let God guide your giving to this ministry.

To give call this number this week and find one of the plans that fits your budget – 1-800-716-9272

Thank you again for your generous support. We could do nothing without your help.

Let me get into the second of five reasons we must evangelize Muslims.

Yesterday we talked about the first reason, if we do not win these people to the Lord, they will destroy us with the sword. The second reason is because the Muslim “Jesus” is not the same Jesus of the Bible.

Galatians 1:7-8 says, “…but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

We are told that if even an angel preaches another gospel, let them be accursed.

We are also told in2 Corinthians 11:4 that “…if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

In other words, those who invent another “Jesus” or another gospel will come under the eternal judgment of God in the Lake of Fire. This is exactly what the religion of Islam has done. It has created a different “Jesus” and a different gospel.

Lets compare the Muslim “Jesus” and the Jesus of the Bible:

Both teach the virgin birth of Jesus

Both teach that He was sinless

Both call Him holy

This is where the similarity ends, the Muslim “Jesus” is not the Son of God

The Qur’an says, “Had Allah wished to take himself a son, he could have chosen whom he

pleased out of those whom he doth create, but he is above such things.”

In another place in the Qur’an, speaking about Christians, says, “Is it not that they say, from their own invention, Allah has begotten children? But they are liars.”

One of the greatest tenants of Islam is that Jesus was just a man, he was a prophet. Allah gave him the message, gave him the gospel, and gave him the words to be a prophet, but he is just a man, nothing more.

Of course the Bible teaches that He is the Son of God. One of the greatest verses in the Bible is John 3:16 which says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Bible is clear that Jesus is more than just a man, He is the only begotten Son of God. We also have 1 Timothy 3:16 which tells us the Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.

Another difference is that the Muslim “Jesus” is not God. There is a teaching within Islam called shirk which is the greatest sin anyone could commit. Shirk when you make anything equal with God. This is blasphemous.

The Bible makes it very clear that Jesus is God. This is one of the foundational principles of our faith. We believe that God came to earth and made Himself a man and lived among us. The Christians message is not that a man became God, it is that God made Himself a man. As a man, God came and lived among us.

In Matthew 1:23 the angel said to Joseph, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

It was the angel Gabriel that said this to Joseph. The Muslims say that it was the angel Gabriel that gave the message to Muhammad. Why did Gabriel give a different message? As I said earlier, even if another angel comes and gives you another message it as accursed.

Jesus was accused of blasphemy at least four times. Any religious leader who is accused of blasphemy is facing a serious charge. Why was He accused of blasphemy? Each time Jesus was claiming to be God. The Jews that heard Him knew exactly what He was saying.

John 5:17-18 says, “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.”

In this passage Jesus said that God was His Father. The Jews called this blasphemy because He made Himself equal with God.

In John 10:30 Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” In John 10:33 the Jews said this was blasphemy because He made Himself God.

In John 8:58 and Mark 14:62-64 Jesus called Himself “I Am” and the Jews went ballistic and accused Him again of blasphemy for making Himself God.

In Luke Chapter 5 Jesus had healed a man and said “Man, thy sins are forgiven thee” (Luke 5:20). In verse 21 the Jews accused Him of speaking blasphemies. Why? Because no one can forgive sins but God. In what follows Jesus is saying, are you getting the point here, I am God.

If Jesus was not God then all of these things would be blasphemy. Because He is God they are not blasphemy.

Philippians 2:6 says, “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”

As you can see, the Jesus of the Bible and the “Jesus” of the Qur’an are not the same Jesus. Those who trust the “Jesus” of the Qur’an will be accursed. This is why we must evangelize Muslims.

Folks, this message has to get out over the radio. We need to teach people how to reach Muslims for Christ. This is why your support is so important.
