How do we figure out who is right, the red corner or the blue corner? We do so by looking at the founder of this religion, the prophet Muhammad.
Just as Jesus Christ is central to Christianity, so is Muhammad central to Islam. Just as there is no Christianity without Jesus Christ, there is no Islam without Muhammad. Each religion rises and falls on its founder.
If Jesus is not who He said He is, if He is not the Son of God, if He didn’t die for our sins, if He didn’t raise from the grave, there is no Christianity. Without Muhammad there is no Islam because all Islamic revelation came through him.
Here are some question I ask those who talk about peaceful Islam:
Is Muhammad to be imitated? – The answer is absolutely YES. The Qur’an commands Muslims to imitate Muhammad more than 93 times.
Did Muhammad participate in literal war, lying, and truce breaking, encouraging his followers to lie and deceive their enemies? – Yes, this teaching is called “taqiya,”
Did Muhammad command the killing of apostates? – Yes, he did. He taught there were three things that justified killing; when a non-Muslim kills a Muslim, adultery, and apostasy.
Did Muhammad take sex slaves and child brides? – Yes, he did. He married one wife who was 6 years old and consummated the marriage when she was 9. He took one sex slave who many believe poisoned him resulting in his death.
Did Muhammad order participate in beheadings himself? – Again, the answer is Yes, he did. The Qur’an talks about striking the necks of unbelievers. There is the story of Muhammad participating in the beheading of 600-900 Jews outside of Medina.
There are also the teachings that come from “The Reliance of the Traveller,” which is the official handbook on Islamic law. This book is accepted by all major sects of Islam.
The red corner, which claims to represent the true face of Islam, is doing what the Prophet did. When they use the phrase in relation to the Prophet, “Peace be upon him,” they are saying that what they do is what the Prophet did. The red corner, the jihadists, is trying to restore early Islam. They are trying to bring back 7th century Islam as it was under Muhammad.
If Muhammad did these horrible act, and ISIS, Boca Haram, and other jihadist groups are carrying out terror, beheading people, crucifying people, burning people, taking slaves, etc. to establish Islam, are they not the true face of Islam?
The blue corner, the reformers, say no and give us their arguments. They really don’t have much of an argument, but they have the media spreading their teachings and trying to make it look like they do have good arguments. One of the most important propaganda tools is to tell a lie so often that it is accepted as the truth. The Media and the Obama administration wants us to believe that Islam is a religion of peace so they keep feeding us the lie.
Many are confused because they see the jihadists doing their evil in the name of Allah but the President tells us that ISIS is not Islamic. When the jihadists do their dastardly deeds they cry “Allahu Akbar,” “Allah is the greatest,” the propagandists want us to believe that they are not Islamic terrorists.
The Ft. Hood Massacre is called work place violence. The beheading of a woman in Moore, OK is called an attack by a disgruntled employee.
The moderates aren’t much help because they don’t really have a case. When ask what their plan is they say the want to get back to the early verses of the Qur’an. They believe that if they do this they can reform Islam. This leaves us with the problem of the later verses that abrogate, or supersede the early verses. They really have no answer to this.
The verses of the sword, the verses that demand the killing of apostates and infidels, were given by Muhammad. The Qur’an is supposed to be the perfect word of Allah so these passages must be dealt with.
One of the Hadith, which are also considered authoritative by Muslims, says:
The Messenger of Allah says, “I have been commanded to fight against people until they testify that there is not god but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.”
Some say that this is not a physical fight, it is a spiritual fight. There is a problem with that. Muhammad fought a literal, physical fight. The reformers have a big problem because Muhammad showed what was meant by his actions. The biggest problem the moderates have is their Prophet, Muhammad.
The only way to truly reform Islam is to denounce Muhammad as a false prophet. If they do this, Islam ceases to exist.
Some Thoughts On The Texas Shooting
This shooting was motivated by Pamela Geller’s “Draw the Prophet” event which was designed as a statement for freedom of speech. The shooting is the result of Islam’s teachings and not this event. This is one of a long line of such shootings. The question I want to ask is should Christians be involved in events like this?
Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 2 Corinthians 6:3
The ministry of the Gospel is offensive enough. People are offended when we tell them they are sinners and deserve God’s wrath and are headed for Hell. What this passage tells us is that we are not to go about it in an offensive way.
It is offensive enough to Muslims when we tell the truth about Islam’s evil nature and say that it is not of God. We shouldn’t go about our efforts to reach Muslims in a way that is designed to offend the. I personally would not be involved in an event like this. Reaching the souls of Muslims is too important.
