Today I want to talk about how to refute Islam and defend our Christian faith. Islam is and ideology that disguises itself as a religion. I am going to point out some things that I have covered in my book “Refuting Islam: The Christian Patriot’s Guide To Exposing Islam.”
We need to understand that 1.7 billion people in this world profess to be Muslims. This is 23% of the world’s population, or nearly 1 in 4 people. Islam has grown at a phenomenal rate in the last 100 years. Just after WWI it was estimated that there were 300 million Muslims in the world.
The growth of Islam is not due to evangelism. They are not persuading people that Islam is the truth. Very few Muslims are involved in evangelism toward other religions. The growth of Islam has been mostly through procreation, through having large families. They realize that in order to take over the world they must grow an army. The goal of Islam is to bring the world into submission to Allah and they realize that bringing people into submission to Allah must be done on the battlefield.
I wrote my new book “Refuting Islam: The Christian Patriot’s Guide To Exposing Islam” to help the average person argue the facts about Islam. The best way to refute anything is to use their words against them. If something is wrong use the words of those who defend it to prove that it is in error. The good news is that you don’t have to be an expert to debate the issues of Islam. You borrow credibility.
The book starts by explaining the problems with Islam. There are political problems, religious issues, problems with Islam’s history, and so forth. Once you understand what we are facing it becomes easier to refute it. I teach you how to use the best sources. You may be surprised to learn that quoting the Qur’an is not necessarily the best strategy. When you use the Qur’an to show some of the horrible, viscous, and vile teachings that it contains, you will be accused of taking the passage out of context. When this happens you have to take the time to prove that you are not taking it out of context. Those of us who are Christians know what it means to have our enemies take passages from the Bible out of context and make unfounded accusations about Christianity. You will find that the best source to quote from is the Shariah Law.
We need to understand that Muhammad was not just building a religion, he was building a kingdom. Islamic law , the Shariah, is not just the theology of the religion. The book that defines Islamic law is between 700 and 800 pages long. The first 300 pages or so deal with the religious aspects of Islam. It covers the 5 pillars of Islam, how to worship, how to pray, how to do you ablutions, the religious feasts, and so forth. The next 400 plus pages deal with the government of Islam.
We must remember that the word “Islam” means submission. The one who submits is called a Muslim, which means the surrendered one. Islam is an oppressing ideology. Muslims are never allowed to ask questions, to doubt, or to suspect that the Qur’an is false, that the Prophet Muhammad may not be a real prophet. You cannot question whether or not Muhammad’s revelations truly came from God. Unlike Christianity, Muslims are not allowed to reason things out.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
Muslims are not encouraged to study their scriptures like Christians are encouraged to study theirs.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
This concept is completely foreign to Islam.
The Shariah handbook is a 700 year old book. There were 4 or 5 schools of interpretation within Islam. They came together about 700 years after Muhammad’s death. This was similar to the Catholic counsels like the Counsel of Trent. They came together and hammered out their doctrines. The Muslim scholars came together and formed a consensus.
They discovered that they agreed about three quarters of the time. They wrote a handbook which is known as “The Reliance Of The Traveller.” This is the best tool we can use because when you quote the Shariah, it quotes the Qur’an and the Sunna, another source of Islamic doctrine which is just as authoritative as the Qur’an. The Qur’an are the words of Allah, and the Sunna are the words and acts of Muhammad. The Shariah is the interpretation of these two sources.
When you quote the Shariah, you are quoting the top Islamic scholars. When you give the interpretation of their scholars they can’t accuse you of taking passages out of context. My book teaches you how and where to quote from the Shariah. My book has taken many quotes out of the Reliance of the Traveller and consolidated them into an easy to use source for you to use. It isn’t necessary for you to purchase the Shariah Law book or to search thing out for yourself, the book does it for you.
When you quote the things in this book you are not quoting Tom Wallace, you are quoting the highest standard in Islam for the interpretation of Islamic law. We put a lot of work into this book so you would have the best sources and be able to formulate the best arguments against Islam.
Let me give you some of the chapter titles so you will know what is in the book.
- Islam, an ideology of violent conquests
- Islam subjugates non-believers
- Islam oppresses women
- Islam practices slavery
- Islam imprisons their adherents
- Muhammad is a false prophet
- The Sinking Qur;an
