Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Terrorist Attack In Orlando – Continued

mateenToday I am going to continue my discussion of the terrorist attack in Orlando. More details continue to come out about the shooter and his associations. We are also learning what the FBI knew about him.

With the way this administration ties the hands of our security agencies, I am amazed that they are able to stop as many attacks as they do. They have removed any mention of Islam in the training manuals and make it so that it cannot be considered as a motive in any investigation.

When Obama speaks concerning this kind of attack he goes to great lengths to avoid calling it Islamic terrorism. He can’t even put the qualifier “radical” before it. He wants us to believe that these are just a few nuts, and that this kind of behavior is not part of the religion of Islam. Even those who do use terms like “radical Islam” are making a big mistake.

Radical, as used in reference to Islamic terrorism, means outside the norm. Those who are committing these acts of terrorism in the name of Islam are doing exactly what their Prophet did and commanded Muslims to do. What they are doing is not radical to what Muhammad taught faithful Muslims to do. This should be the reasonable activity of every Muslim in his struggle against the infidels.

Surah 9:29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

There are other Qur’anic passages that teach Muslims to keep swinging the sword as long as there is unbelief in the world. Jihad is not a radical thing within Islam, It is Islam!

Not only does Obama not call it Islamic terrorism, he does not allow those in his administration to consider Islam when trying to prevent terrorist attacks. This is why the FBI could do nothing when they had Omar Mateen under investigation for 8 months. They are not allowed to look at the obvious, they are told to look at other triggers or motives. It seems foolish when, in America, you hear hoof beats, and you look for a zebra instead of a horse.

How do we expect to protect our nation with this type of a rule book? The fact that  our security professionals have done as well as they have in protecting us speaks well of the quality of people doing the job.

We have also learned that Mateen knew Abu Salha, the first known American to go to Syria and blow himself up as a suicide bomber. Both of them worshiped at the same mosque in Orlando. Why is our government unable to connect the dots? This political correctness is destroying our nation.

What are the teachings of Islam on homosexuality? And how does it compare with Christianity?

Here is what the Sharia Law Book says on the subject:

ROT – P17.0 (Pg 664) Sodomy and Lesbianism

p17.1 In more than one place in the Holy Koran, Allah recounts to us the story of Lot’s people, and how He destroyed them for their wicked practice. There is consensus among both Muslims and the followers of all other religions that sodomy is an enormity. It is even viler and uglier than adultery.

p17.2 Allah Most High says:

“Do you approach the males of humanity, leaving the wives Allah has created for you? But you are a people who transgress” (Koran 26:165-66).

p17.3 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

(1) “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”

(2) “May Allah curse him who does what Lot’s people did.”

(3) “Lesbianism by women is adultery between them.”

This is from the official Sharia Law Book of Islam. Lot’s people are the people of Sodom.

Now let’s look at what the Bible has to say on the subject:

The Bible requires the death penalty for Sodomy

Le 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.

Just as it does for Adultery

Le 20:10  And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

De 22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

The word for all sexual sin is fornication. The laws in the Old Testament were very clear, and very strict on this subject.

Why is it that under Christianity we don’t put homosexuals to death? I believe we find the answer in John Chapter 8:

And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery; and having set her in the midst, they say unto him, Teacher, this woman hath been taken in adultery, in the very act. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such: what then sayest thou of her? And this they said, trying him, that they might have whereof to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. But when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground. And they, when they heard it, went out one by one, beginning from the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst. And Jesus lifted up himself, and said unto her, Woman, where are they? did no man condemn thee? And she said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, Neither do I condemn thee: go thy way; from henceforth sin no more. (John 8:3-11)

It is interesting that they did not bring the man. They did this to find fault in Him. We don’t know what Jesus wrote in the dust, but it brought conviction and they left. In this passage Jesus shows mercy to a woman caught in sexual sin. We, as Christians, also give mercy, but just as with Jesus, the mercy is conditional. He told her to “sin on more.” A Christian should show mercy, but should not condone the sin.

This story shows us that there a a place for grace. Remember, we are saved by grace, through faith, without works (Ephesians 2:8-9). How can we, as Christians who’s sins are forgiven, not show grace to other sinners when our Lord has shown such grace to us?
