Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Answering Muslims Conference – Part 6

QuranVanThe fourth step is forming compelling arguments. How do you make common sense arguments in a world without absolutes?

The world we live in says there are no absolutes. The first question to ask when this is said is, is your statement absolute?

Another thing that is said when we make judgments concerning Islam is that it is un-Christian to judge. The Bible teaches that we are not to be hypocritical in our judgment, but it does not teach that we are not to judge.

The first thing you need to do is bring up something so evil that everyone who is reasonable would call it evil. If you bring up something like this, and the person cannot admit that it is evil, you may as well close up shop and go home.

Hitler slaughtered a total of 17 million people. Ask them if this is evil? Most people would agree that it is. They will agree that this is something we don’t want in our nation.

The next thing we do is show the similarity between Islam and Nazism.

  • Both have a doctrine of supremacy.

  • Both rule by dictatorship.

  • Both believe in world domination.

  • Both kill those who disagree with them.

  • Both kill Jews.

Should we outlaw Islam from America? What is the right approach? Can we, even if we wanted to, outlaw Islam in America?

We have a constitution which give us freedom of religion. The First Amendment has the phrase “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” When our founders were considering this amendment there were several rough drafts. Patrick Henry had come up with an exception clause for the First Amendment, which said:

Unless, under the color of religion, any man disturb the peace, the happiness, or the safety of society.

The founders already knew about Islam, America’s first war on foreign soil was against Muslims. They discussed putting this clause in the amendment and decided against doing so because it would have been redundant, There were other laws which protected these things. Maryland did adopt it in their constitution, as did Virginia.

The last principle in refuting Islam is to borrow credibility. You may not be an expert on Islam, but that doesn’t mean you can’t speak out against it. Use the experts that are out there and quote them. Better yet, use Islam’s words against them by quoting Islamic authorities.

As I close, let me make a suggestion. There is a grass roots organization called Act for America. It is there to defend our country from the onslaught of Islam. There are chapters all over America. Find the Act for America chapter closest to you and see if you can get involved.

Islam and the Antichrist

I want to look at how Islam fits the antichrist religion. I studied Islam for 3 years before I ever spoke of Islam and the Antichrist. I wanted to be sure that I understood their doctrine before I started talking about this. All I can give you here are the highlights.

In Islam’s prophetic teaching they are waiting for three people;

  • The Mahdi – This is their messiah.

  • The second person is Isa – The Muslim Jesus, the servant of the Mahdi.

  • The Dijal – The Muslim false prophet.

When you look at Islamic prophecy it is like looking at the Book of Revelation in a mirror. Everything is the exact opposite. Their Mahdi is our Antichrist. He will do the things that the Bible attributes to the Antichrist. Their Isa fits very well with what we read in Revelation 13 about the second beast, the false prophet. The Muslim Dijal, who they think is the false messiah, fits with the Bible’s description of the true Messiah.

This reversal of roles is interesting. Their Mahdi will war with our Messiah.

Most of the teaching on Islamic prophecy is with the Shiites. The Sunni follow it, but the Shiites are passionate about it.

The Sunni don’t believe that the caliph, the supreme ruler of Islam has to be a direct decedent of Muhammad. The Sunni make up about 80% of the Muslims in the world. They have the correct doctrine on this issue. There was no indication from Muhammad that his successor had to be of his bloodline. His first successor was Abu Bakar, who was Muhammad’s best friend. He was not related to Muhammad. Interestingly enough, he did end up being Muhammad’s father-in-law. Muhammad married Abu’s daughter when he was about 50 years old. The daughter was only 6 years old at the time of the marriage. The marriage was consummated when she was 9.

Pedophilia is wide spread in Islam. They have their Prophet as an example.
