Today we are going to look at who the real Prophet of Islam is. Is he the prophet of the jihadists or is he the prophet of the reformers? Did he give a religion of peace which some are perverting, or did he give a militant religion that uses the sword to bring all into submission to Islam?
There is an internal battle going on in Islam and we want to look at who is in the ring. Groups like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and others are in the red corner and reformers like Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Dr. Zudi Jasser are in the blue corner.
Those in the red corner say they are just following the teachings and example of the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. Those in the blue corner claim that what we are seeing in the world is not representative of true Islam. They say that Islam can be reformed and made peaceful. There are also the propagandists like President Obama, John Kerry, Eric Holder, and many others in our government who are saying Islam is a religion of peace. There is a real battle going on within Islam.
There is one more group that must be considered in this discussion. It is those like Shahram who have come out of the religion, the former Muslims. They also have a voice, but unfortunately we are not sure it is being heard.
We are often criticized for judging. Those who criticize use Matthew 7:1 which says, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” If you take this in context it is saying that we need to first take care of our own sin, the beam in our eye, so we can see clearly to remove the mote from our brother’s eye. It is warning that we will be judged by the same standard that we use to judge others.
The Bible gives us the authority to judge Islam.
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. Galatians 1:8
A so-called angel supposedly came from God and gave another gospel and another Jesus. God says anyone who does this is accursed. We are to earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 1:3). As Christians we not only have the right, we also have the responsibility, to point out error even if it comes in the name of God. Islam claims that their god, Allah, is the same God as Jehovah, and that he is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He is not! We know this because we can judge them by their fruits.
1 John tells us we are to test the spirits because all spirits are not of God.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
Muhammad claims the he Qur’an is the final revelation from God. It rebukes Christianity. Many people don’t know that the Muslim version of Jesus is going to come back with their messiah and tell the Christians that they were wrong, there was no Crucifixion, he is not the Son of God, he was not God incarnate, God is not the Father and there is no Son.
We are told in the Bible to try the spirits, and that any spirit that denies the Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is antichrist.
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 1 John 4:3
The Bible commands us to have discernment. We are commanded to point out those who are in error. It is not optional for faithful Christians.
Before we get started with the main subject I want us to look at a current event from Great Britain that will have an effect here in America. Christianity is being attacked on many fronts. Great Britain was once a force for spreading Christianity across the world. Today Christianity is being persecuted in this once great nation.
UK Court threatens to Jail a preacher for reading an offensive Bible verse in Open air preaching.
There is an interesting story coming out of Great Britain. A Christian street preacher was today found guilty of using “threatening” language by quoting the Bible when speaking about homosexuality on the streets of Taunton in June last year.
A judge of the Magistrates’ Court convicted this preacher under section 5 of the Public Order Act, which concerns causing harassment, alarm or distress by using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.
The judge at Bristol Crown Court told him that he should not have used the particular verse in the Bible – Leviticus 20:13 – because it uses the word “abomination”.
Overd was given a fine of £300, and told to pay £1,200in costs (a total of about $2,500) and compensation. This included a sum for the emotional harm caused to the homosexual man, who is also a Christian(?), to whom he was speaking when he quoted Leviticus.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
This verse is a condemnation of homosexuality. He did not quote the whole verse, he left out the part about being put to death.
Michael Overt said, “I am amazed that the judge sees it as his role to dictate which parts of the Bible can and can’t be preached… I did not quote the full text of Leviticus 20 or make reference to the death penalty, but the judge is telling me that I should use other parts of the Bible. This is not free speech but censorship. The judge is redacting the Bible.
He refused to pay saying the judgment is faulty. The judge threatened him with a 45 day jail sentence. He ended up paying the fine.
This judge is a Muslim and serves on an Islamic Shariah court. Islamic law holds the exact same position on homosexuality and this verse of the Bible. Muhammad taught that Leviticus was given to Moses by Allah. The only places Islam does not agree with the first five books of the Bible is where they say that the Jews corrupted them concerning the inheritance of Isaac and Ishmael.
This judge essentially told the preacher that he could not preach the Bible. Would he have made the same judgment to someone preaching from the Qur’an? The Qur’an teaches that homosexuality is an abomination and that it is to receive the death penalty.
The difference is that because of Jesus Christ Christianity no longer puts sodomites to death. They can be healed by God and they can be forgiven there sin. In Islam there is no redemption for them. This is why they are being put to death in Islamic countries. This is why ISIS is throwing them off buildings, etc. In Iran they hang them up on cranes on the street where they can be seen by all.
Again, I must ask, will this Muslim judge give out the same sentence to a Muslim preaching the same thing from the Qur’an?
The Muslims set up a Shariah court in Irvine, Texas and the mayor of the town took it before a judge who ordered it shut down. The court said it would not shut down no matter what the judge said. We need to be alert to this kind of thing. If we aren’t we are in danger of going where Great Britain already is.
