Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Obama’s Doctrine On Israel – Part 3

Listen to today’s broadcast:

obama-with-muslimsI want to start  out today by telling you that we finally have our first tract for witnessing to Muslims ready. This means we are about ready to start receiving orders for the first of three tracts on this subject.

This tract is not a traditional tract, it is more of an apologetic brochure. It deals with the major objection that Muslims give when we try to evangelize them. The key to winning a Muslim to Christ is to get them into the Bible. They have been told by their modern clerics that the Bible has been corrupted. They are told that because of this Allah gave the last testament to correct the errors that the Jews and the Christians have introduced into the Bible.There is a big problem with this because that is not what the Qur’an says. The Qur’an very clearly says that the Bible is protected from corruption. These modern clerics are teaching something that the Prophet Muhammad wouldn’t teach.

This tract is designed to explain these facts. It quotes seven or eight passages from the Qur’an and we lay out the evidence the Bible is inerrant and inspired and is, therefore, trustworthy. It shows that Muhammad cannot be God’s prophet because he said things contrary to the Bible. From there it goes into a Gospel presentation.

If you know a Muslim that you want to reach for Christ this is a great tool for you to use. These tracts are a little pricey compared to most tracts. We are selling packs of 12 for $6.00 plus shipping and handling. We are not ready yet to receive phone orders but you can order them online.

Let us get back into the subject we are covering this week, the Obama doctrine on Israel.

As we look at this speech we need to remember that Obama claims to be a Christian. Next week we will be looking at the proof that he is still a Muslim, but for now let’s remember that he claims to be a Christian. With this in mind it is interesting to note that in the speech us used the term “the holy Qur’an” numerous times as he quotes from it. He only quotes from the Bible one time at the end of the speech.

Here is one of his quotes from the Qur’an, it comes from Sura 5:32:

The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent is as — it is as if he has killed all mankind. And the Holy Koran also says whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind.

We have a problem with this quote because we know that there is something in the next verse that he did not quote. To begin with he started the quote half way through the verse, as do all Muslim apologists. The verse starts by saying “we ordained for the children of Israel” so you can see that this verse is not talking about Muslim, but Israel.

We must also understand that when Muslims talk about killing the innocent they don’t mean the same thing we do. The way the Qur’an describes an innocent it is talking about Muslims who are innocent in the eyes of Allah. The non-Muslim is not innocent in the eyes of Allah. This verse is not talking about the same thing we mean when we say the innocent.

What this verse really says is that if a Jew kills an innocent Muslim he is guilty of killing all mankind. The next verse says:

The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

This is clearly talking about non-Muslims. Notice the punishment that is due non-Muslims.

Let’s look at the verse Obama quoted from in context. It says to the Jews that if they kill an innocent Muslim it is as if they had killed the whole world and if you save a Muslim it is like you have saved all of mankind. But if you wage war against Allah (all non-Muslims are in the house of war) the punishment is “ execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land.”

In context, does this sound like a peaceful verse? Yet this the verse that Obama quoted to say that Muslims are peaceful. How deceptive can it get?

Here is a quote from the speech that we need to look at closely:

I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President, John Adams, wrote, “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.”

This incident with Morocco is about the Barbary Pirates. This pirates were attacking American ships and the US thought that if they signed a treaty, the Treaty of Tripoli, that they would have peace. The Muslims continued to violate the treaty. This has been the practice of Islam from the beginning. Muhammad signed the a treaty with Mecca and broke the treaty within two years. What President Adams said was that the US has no enmity against what Islam does in their one countries, not that Islam was peaceful.

Here is another quote:

And when the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same Holy Koran that one of our Founding Fathers — Thomas Jefferson — kept in his personal library.

He is implying that Jefferson thought the Qur’an was equal to the Bible. Why did Jefferson have a Qur’an? He had it because he was following one of the basic doctrines of war, know your enemy. We didn’t actually end the problems with the Muslim Barbary Pirates until we went on the offensive and destroyed them.

The president took this completely out of context in trying to say that Islam has always been a part of the American story. He is not completely wrong because Islam was our enemy back then, and Islam is our enemy today. Morocco was not the first country to recognize our country, it was the first to attack us. When we tried to make peace through a treaty, they did non honor it. Peace only came when we defeated them militarily.

In 1786 the Algerian Ambassador explained why they were attacking us.

Islam was established on the laws of their Prophet Muhammad that it was written in their Qur’an that all nations that would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, infidels, and that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found.

He was saying that the reason we are attacking your vessels and holding your crews for ransom is not personal it is just that you are non-Muslims and Islam has declared war on non-Muslims. It is just our duty to do that.
