Topical and Timely New Book – Not Peace but a Sword: The Great Chasm Between Christianity and Islam By Robert Spencer

IslamMoon

Robert Spencer has written a dozen books on Islam, as well as thousands of pages of commentary on Islamic law, scripture, and tradition, but this may be his most significant book yet because of its potential to alert Christians to a dangerous gap in their knowledge of Islam. Christian leaders are badly in need of a wake-up call about Islam and this is a wake-up call that is hard to ignore. Not Peace but a Sword asks questions about the relationship between Christianity and Islam that few others are asking, even though they are questions that beg for answers.

The Great and Enduring Heresy of Mohammed (Free Selection)

Seen on the web: Practical insights into Islam

Posted by: Infidel Alliance
Here is something critical in understanding Islam: In the Judeo-Christian Bible, the old testament records the brutality and savagery of an ancient age, yet it advances human civilizational consciousness with the first human liberation movement in the Exodus, and the first practical laws for a free society in the Ten Commandments, and culminating in the brilliant teachings of Jesus.Christianity advanced humanity by replacing an ‘eye-for-an-eye’ revenge based civilization with a justice based civilization tempered with compassion, forgiveness and redemption, a true understanding of universal human rights as opposed to tribal sectarianism and bigotry, a love based society rather than a hate based society, and the concept of a loving God rather than a vengeful God.

Islam, on the other hand, did just the opposite. It is well known that Muhammeds preachings in Mecca were relatively benign, as he tried to copy and co-opt elements of Judaism, Christianity and his own paganism into his newly contrived ‘religion.’  Having failed, Muhammed began part two of his new religion based on violent bigotry and genocidal Islamic supremacy known as Jihad theology. And, of course, Islamic doctrine embraces ‘abrogation’, thus the violent, misogynistic bigotry of later Medinan Islam replaced the ‘kinder gentler’ preachings of earlier Meccan Islam.

So, as Judeo-Christian philosophy advanced from the violent to the peaceful, Islam devolved from the peaceful to the violent where it has remained for 14 centuries, slaughtering its way across the continents.

You can get a better understanding of this if you compare the life of Muhammed, one of histories most sadistic sociopaths, to the life of Jesus in the West or of the Guatama Buddha in the East. Islam is antithetical to modern humanity because its founder, Muhammed, was antithetical to modern humanity.

This Week’s Ask Alice: What the Bible (and the Catholic Church) teaches about abortion.



Send A Question To Alice

She’ll answer your Catholic questions
right here, every Thursday.

Email responses will also be provided, as time permits.

Rob Asks: What are the strongest Bible verses condemning abortion?

Alice Responds: Some of the strongest Bible passages condemning abortion present evidence that life begins in the womb.

A beautiful Pro Life witness was proclaimed by Elizabeth, in the New Testament, when her pregnant cousin, the Virgin Mary, came to visit.

Elizabeth clearly felt the movement of John (the Baptist) … her yet to be born son … in response to the awesome presence of the Holy Spirit:

“Thereupon Mary set out, preceding into the hill country to a town of Judah, where she entered Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. It happened, when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, that the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.” (Luke 41:39-41)

Here are more Scripture verses to help change the hearts and minds of people who tolerate abortion:

“For you formed me in my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb….My frame wasn’t hidden from you., when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were written, the days that you ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them.” (Psalm 139:13, 15-16)

“Didn’t He who made me in the womb make him? Didn’t one fashion us in the womb?” (Job 31:15)

“Your hands shaped me and made me. Will you now turn and destroy me? Remember that you molded me like clay. Will you now turn me to dust again?” (Job 10:2, 8-9)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. Before you came out of the womb I sanctified you.” (Jeremiah 1:4-5)

“Cursed is he who takes a bribe to kill an innocent person.. All the people shall say, ‘Amen.’ “ (Deuteronomy 27:25)

Throughout history, the saints have taught us invaluable lessons about the sanctity of life. The maternal heroism of St. Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962) serves an an inspiration to all Pro Lifers.


Gianna was a pediatric physician and devoted mother of three children. During the second month of her fourth pregnancy, doctors discovered a fibroma on Gianna’s uterus.

Physicians offered her three choices: 1) an abortion to save her life and allow her to have more children; 2) a complete hysterectomy to preserve her life, but end the unborn child’s life; 3) removal of only the fibroma, with potential further complications.

Insisting that her unborn baby must be saved, Gianna chose the removal of only the fibroma. On April 21, 1962, Good Friday, Gianna’s delivered her fourth child, Gianna Emmanuela, by Caesarean section. In great pain, Gianna died seven days after giving birth, from septic peritonitis.

She was canonized on May 16, 2004. Her husband Pietro and the daughter she saved, Gianna Emmanuela, were both present at the ceremony.

In Christ’s Love,

Alice

Doug Lawrence adds: Abortion has always been abhorrent to those of the authentic Jewish and Christian faith traditions.

Probably the best, most specific, written proof of this can be found in this excerpt from chapter 2 of the earliest known, most widely circulated, extra-biblical teachings of the apostles – known as “The Didache” – dated to 100 AD – about 300 years before the Canon of Sacred Scripture was officially compiled and certified:

…you shall not practice magic, you shall not practice witchcraft, you shall not murder a child by abortion
nor kill that which is begotten.

The Didache, for a number of reasons, is still very much worth reading, for any Christian … since at the time it was written, the Christian Church was already being identified as “Catholic”.

Some 500 years later, Muslims and the Koran came out firmly against abortion and infanticide.

Only in later times was this totally consistent reverence and respect for life attacked and weakened by the false teachings of various apostates … and in turn … by their lethal, politically motivated spawn.

Big trouble in Dearborn-i-stan (Dearborn, Michigan)

The violent intimidation of anti-jihadists that I just saw in Stuttgart is coming to America.

Authorities should act quickly and decisively to defend the freedom of speech, or it will most assuredly soon be gone.

As Pamela Geller notes, these stories involve “two Christian groups, both under attack in a no-go zone zone in Dearborn, Michigan, in an increasingly sharia compliant America.

Dearborn, the same city that refused to run my bus ads offering help to apostates (despite our win in the courts). On Friday, two separate groups were threatened and attacked because they came to Dearborn to stand for their beliefs.

Writer’s stunning revelations on the character of Muhammed, Islam, and the Koran.

Ali Sina is an Iranian ex-Muslim who established the organisation for apostates of Islam Faith Freedom International. In his latest book he posits that Muhammad is a narcissist, a paedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter (*). Sina has offered 50,000 dollars for the one who can prove otherwise. Nobody has claimed the reward as yet. And no wonder, as the description is based on the Islamic texts themselves, such as the hadiths, the descriptions of Muhammad’s life from testimonies of contemporaries.

The historical Muhammad was the savage leader of a gang of robbers from Medina. Without scruples they looted, raped and murdered. The sources describe orgies of savagery where hundreds of people’s throats were cut, hands and feet chopped off, eyes cut out, entire tribes massacred. An example is the extinction of the jewish Kurayza tribe in Medina in 627. One of those who chopped off their heads was Muhammad. The women and children were sold as slaves. Confronted with the lunacy of Islamic terrorists today, it is not hard to find out where the lunacy comes from.

Understanding Islam: The Sharia Catechism

By Roland Shirk, Jihad Watch

Let me lay out my own no-nonsense take on the question, in a form I’ll call the Sharia Catechism:

What does Islam teach? Islam teaches that it is the final revelation from God, and the only legitimate world religion. All other faiths, or secular world views, are either idol-worship, blasphemous parodies of Islam, or degenerate perversions of it.

When was Islam founded? Islam was founded when Abraham made his covenant with God. The Jews who claimed that this covenant constituted Judaism are lying (as is their wont), and relying on faked scriptures that their scheming ancestors crafted to suit their own ethnic aggrandizement.

Where are the original scriptures recounting the history of Abraham, Moses, and other early Muslims? These original scriptures no longer exist. They were destroyed and replaced by the crafty Jews.

Who was Jesus? Jesus (Isa) was a Muslim prophet who came as the Messiah to recall the faithless Jews to their Muslim faith. The true accounts of his life and message were altered beyond recognition by the scheming Christians—who also spread the lie that he was crucified, and rose from the dead.

Where are these original Gospels? These original Gospels were destroyed by the early Christians (who were also, we must remember, Jews), shortly after they were written—in order to cover up their clear predictions of the coming of Muhammad.

Will Jesus come again at the end of the world? Yes, Jesus will come again to destroy Christianity, kill all the pigs in the world, and end dhimmitude—by forcing all Christians either to convert to Islam or be killed (like the pigs).

Read it all

Muhammad’s myopic view of Jesus was fundamentally flawed.

The Qur’an (Quran, Kuran, Koran, Coran or al-Qur’ān), the religious text ostensibly revealed to Muhammad by “Allah” through the angel “Jibril”, is considered by Muslims to be the “final revelation” of ‘Allah”. In it, we find fables about various persons who are also mentioned in the Torah and in the Christian New Testament. Among them is “Isa”, who Muslims claim is Jesus.

Seen on the web: Islam, the Koran, and You.

The Catholic Church teaches this about Islam, in its official Catechism:

841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”330

A reader at Jihad Watch recently posted the following about the teachings of the Koran.

Islamic Allah is the greatest deceiver of all (3:54) and leads people astray (14:27).

The Koran was made by Allah (10:37) and always been in heaven with Allah (85:21-:22).

The Koran is flawless (39:28) and only in Arabic (39:28, 43:3).

The current Koran has 114 Chapters, yet other original Korans had 111 Chapters (Abdullah bin Masud), while yet others had 116 Chapters (Ubayy bin Ka’b).

What to do?

The world’s most powerful Muslim who reigned as caliph from 644-658 called Uthmam ordered other original Korans burned.

The current Koran, Chapter 33 has 77 verses, but originally had hundreds more.

One of the verses omitted was stoning to death for rape and adultery (Rajam), just like Mohammed ordered done to a mother who finished weaning her infant.

Mohammed is the ideal example of conduct for for Muslim and a prophet (33:21, 68:4), yet illiterate=unlettered (7:157).

Mohammed (51) married child bride Aisha (6) and raped her when she was 9 and he was 54 (Bukhari 7.62.88)

Mohammed says the devil stays in the upper-part of the nose all night (Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 666, Verse 3295).

Muslims are the best of humanity (Koran 3:110).
Muslims are forbidden from doubting ANY part of the Koran (2:1).

Muslims are forbidden from asking questions about the Koran (Koran 5:101).

Muslims are REQUIRED to fight and kill us, even if they don’t want to (2:216, 2:244, 4:89, 4:91).

Muslims MUST crucify, amputate, and slaughter non-Muslims (5:33).

Muslims CANNOT have non-Muslims as friends (5:51).

Muslims are allowed to lie to non-Muslims to spread Islam (3:28, 16:106).

Jews, Christians, and others are apes and pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:163-166).

Should we tolerate child rape (65:4) and sex slaves (4:24) in Islam by Muslims?

Should we allow Muslims to kill us because it’s the ONLY guaranteed way for Muslims to get to heaven (9:111)?

Should we let Muslims behead us (smite our necks – Koran 8:12, 47:4)?

Should we be killed for refusing to convert to Islam (9:29)?

Should Muslims be killed for leaving Islam (Bukhari 9.84.57)?

Should Infidel women be stoned to death (Rajam) for the crime of adultery and getting raped (Sahih Bukhari 8.82.816)?

Your comments are welcome.

Father John Hardon, S.J.: A Primer On Islam

Doctrine and worship in the Koran

Islam is a glomeration of sects and traditions that bewilder the Western mind. Yet after thirteen centuries, the followers of Mohammed are somehow united and their unity traceable to a common devotion to the Koran. It is the duty of every Moslem, man, woman, or child, to read the Koran and understand it according to his capacity. There runs through the book a consistent body of doctrine and of practical obligations which has remained in all ages the inspiration of the Muslim religion.

Unexpectedly, the famous Shahada or profession of faith, “There is but one God, and Mohammed is the Apostle of God,” nowhere occurs as such in the Koran. The nearest equivalent, often called the Islamic Credo, is found in the surah of Women: “You who believe, believe in God and His apostle, and the Book which He revealed to His apostle, and the Book which he revealed to those before him. Whoever denies God and His angels and His books and His apostle and the day of judgment has strayed far away from the truth.”1

While the Koran itself is central, three other sources of Islamic doctrine and practice are recognized by orthodox Moslems: tradition or Qunnah, community agreement or igmah, and the principle of analogy called gijas.

Tradition as a source of revelation is co-equal with the Koran in binding power and authority. It consists of all the sayings, explicit or implicit, of Mohammed, which he did not personally set down in the Koran.

Consensus of believers is more difficult to define and has occasioned endless dispute and schism. But in theory it means that whenever a sizeable portion of the Moslem faithful agrees on some cardinal issue of doctrine or ritual, this becomes part of the creedal structure of Islam.

The method of analogy finds special application in the field of morals and conduct, where a new situation is evaluated by comparison with a similar one in the past. Understandably the principle of gijas lends itself to arbitrary interpretation and, in fact, has been the cause of grave tension and conflict in Moslem jurisprudence.

The Eternal Flame of Muslim Outrage

Is it true that the late Pope John Paul II once publicly kissed the Koran?


Q: Is it true that the late Pope John Paul II once publicly kissed the Koran (Muslim Holy Book)? What can we infer from this?

A: Yes he did, as the above photo shows. As for inferring the pope’s intentions or motives, this 1985 address to a group of Muslim Moroccan youth provides a good idea of the pope’s position on the Islamic faith:

“Christians and Muslims, we have many things in common, as believers and as human beings. We live in the same world, marked by many signs of hope, but also by multiple signs of anguish. For us, Abraham is a very model of faith in God, of submission to his will and of confidence in his goodness. We believe in the same God, the one God, the living God, the God who created the world and brings his creatures to their perfection.

It is therefore towards this God that my thought goes and that my heart rises: it is of God himself that, above all, I wish to speak with you; of him, because it is in him that we believe, you Muslims and we Catholics. I wish also to speak with you about human values, which have their basis in God, these values which concern the blossoming of our person, as also that of our families and our societies, as well as that of the international community. The mystery of God, is it not the highest reality from which depends the very meaning which man gives to his life? And is it not the first problem that presents itself to a young person, when he reflects upon the mystery of his own existence and on the values which he intends to choose in order to build his growing personality?”

Read the full text from the Vatican website

This approach makes a lot of sense, based on the official Catholic Church teaching regarding Islam (and other, non-Christian faiths.) From the Catechism:

The Church and non-Christians

839 “Those who have not yet received the Gospel are related to the People of God in various ways.”325

The relationship of the Church with the Jewish People. When she delves into her own mystery, the Church, the People of God in the New Covenant, discovers her link with the Jewish People,326 “the first to hear the Word of God.”327 The Jewish faith, unlike other non-Christian religions, is already a response to God’s revelation in the Old Covenant. To the Jews “belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ”,328 “for the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable.”329

840 And when one considers the future, God’s People of the Old Covenant and the new People of God tend towards similar goals: expectation of the coming (or the return) of the Messiah. But one awaits the return of the Messiah who died and rose from the dead and is recognized as Lord and Son of God; the other awaits the coming of a Messiah, whose features remain hidden till the end of time; and the latter waiting is accompanied by the drama of not knowing or of misunderstanding Christ Jesus.

841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”330

842 The Church’s bond with non-Christian religions is in the first place the common origin and end of the human race:

All nations form but one community. This is so because all stem from the one stock which God created to people the entire earth, and also because all share a common destiny, namely God. His providence, evident goodness, and saving designs extend to all against the day when the elect are gathered together in the holy city. . .331

843 The Catholic Church recognizes in other religions that search, among shadows and images, for the God who is unknown yet near since he gives life and breath and all things and wants all men to be saved. Thus, the Church considers all goodness and truth found in these religions as “a preparation for the Gospel and given by him who enlightens all men that they may at length have life.”332

844 In their religious behavior, however, men also display the limits and errors that disfigure the image of God in them:

Very often, deceived by the Evil One, men have become vain in their reasonings, and have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and served the creature rather than the Creator. Or else, living and dying in this world without God, they are exposed to ultimate despair.333

845 To reunite all his children, scattered and led astray by sin, the Father willed to call the whole of humanity together into his Son’s Church. The Church is the place where humanity must rediscover its unity and salvation. The Church is “the world reconciled.” She is that bark which “in the full sail of the Lord’s cross, by the breath of the Holy Spirit, navigates safely in this world.” According to another image dear to the Church Fathers, she is prefigured by Noah’s ark, which alone saves from the flood.334

Interview with a Coptic Orthodox Priest who has a 60 million dollar al Qaeda bounty on his head

FP: You always document your discussions with Islamic sources. Why do Muslim clerics and imams have such a difficulty discussing what Islam itself teaches and instead just attack you personally?

Botros: I think the answer is obvious. The Islamic sources, the texts, speak for themselves. Muslims have no greater enemy than their own scriptures—particularly the Hadith and Sira—which constantly scandalize and embarrass Muslims. To date, I have done well over 500 different episodes dedicated to various topics regarding Islam. And for every one of these episodes, all my material comes directly from Islam’s textual sources, particularly usul al-fiqh—the Koran, hadith, and ijma of the ulema as found in their tafsirs.

So what can the sheiks of Islam do? If they try to address the issue I raise based on Islam’s texts and sharia, they will have no choice but to agree—for instance that concubinage is legal, or that drinking camel urine is advocated. The only strategy left them, then, is to ignore all that I present and attack my person, instead.

And when well-meaning Muslims ask their leaders to respond to these charges, one of their favorite responses is to quote the Koran, where it says “Do not ask questions of things that will hurt you.”

FP: So what does it say about a religion whose religious teachers and members have to ignore their own theological texts because they cannot endure what those texts really say? What sense does any of this make?

Botros: Again, this is a reflection of the fact that Islam is less a faith, more a vehicle for empowerment. As you say, what is the point for a person to closely guard and follow a religion that he himself has to rationalize, ignore, minimize, constantly reinterpret, dissemble over, and so forth? The fact is, most Muslims do not know what is in their own texts; at best, they know, and here and there try to follow, the Five Pillars. This is why the issues I broach often traumatize Muslims—like a freshening slap across the face: a short, sharp, shock. The stubborn, who take it as an attack of “us versus them,” irrespective of truths, just fume and plot to kill me; the other, more reasonable Muslims, who are really searching for the truth, end up waking up to the biggest hoax perpetrated on the human race in 1400 years, and many come to the ultimate Truth.

A mainstream Muslim comments on Tiller’s funeral, his life, and his gruesome work

eagle

Editor’s note: Muslim terrorists draw the line at abortion … something the U.S. Supreme Court, the U. S. Congress, and President Barack Obama, refuse to do. 

Umar wrote on 6/5/2009 10:38:42 PM:

The “Wichita Chapter of the Muslim Public Affairs Council” consists in its entirety of 1 person and is NOT representative of Islam. Islam unequivocally condemns the murder of the many healthy babies that Tiller massacred. The Holy Qur’an teaches that on the Day of Judgment the babies will ask for what crime they were killed. Tiller’s death, while illegal and therefore unsupportable by Islam, has at least temporarily brought a halt to the slaughter.

No Muslim should sign on to the statement of this service which according to their press release considers that “Our goal is to seek God’s peace and comfort, and pray for Dr. Tiller’s family and friends, the people of his congregation at Reformation Lutheran Church, and for our community. May God forgive us and lead us all to be better than we have been in keeping with God’s commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Note that this statement shamefully DOES NOT include Tiller’s victims.

What makes the teaching of Koran more authoritative than the Bible, or vice versa?

Q: What makes the teaching of Koran more authoritative than the Bible, or vice versa?

A: Fact is … regardless of their true origin … both books require interpretation by people … and that invariably leads to the types of grievous errors that are so prevalent in the world today.

The Koran has much more in common with the Old Testament of the Bible than anything else, with its’ emphasis on the need to keep various laws, and its’ habit of keeping God obscure, full of wrath, and very, very far away.

In that, the Koran is merely a rehash of an old system of things that was made obsolete by Jesus Christ, some 600 years before Mohammed, when Jesus gave us the New Covenant … based not on law, but on grace … something that is also largely ignored and little understood, by devotees of the Koran.

The lesson of history (and of the Bible) is that people who attempt to please God merely by keeping his laws are doomed to fail … while those who make a serious, faithful, and lifelong effort to know and love God, and who act on that love, are never forsaken by him.
