Roots of Islam's Violent and non-Violent Treatment of Christians

Islam can never be understood and properly dealt with outside the Bible.  Here is an example:  Colossians 2 from NIV version:

20 Since you died with Christ (My insertion: the Anointed Oneto the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules:  (Islam begins with the denial of the Anointed One, where the "Praised One", the muhammad was once a title for Jesus, is replaced with the "an evil one", the man named Muhammad)

21 "Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? (My comment: Doesn't this describe much of what Islam is all about?  The rules, what is haram, what is halal.  These verses were written many years before the founding of Islam but when the seeds of Islam's beginning were present) 

22 These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings. (Muslims incorrectly teach over and over that the Koran is from the god Allah, indirectly from him anyway through a spirit,  into Muhammad's mind and then eventually written down)

23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.

(Islam, with all its imposed rules of worship, its rituals, washings, regimented prayers, false piety from self-righteousness and from denying their evil nature, dimpled foreheads from prayer position, required and regulated fasting, traditional female genital mutilations, all worthless in pleasing God and in forming a good soul.  So the women in this Islam must be covered up to hide the Muslim male's sensual desires!)

The teachings of the Anointed One, the true praised one,  convict Muslims of sin, Islam cannot tolerate this, so Islam developed to where Christians must be subdued, converted or destroyed but these vengeful actions by Muslims will never stop the truth or extinguish the light.

Texas Demonstration Against 'Muhammad' Conference Scheduled

The Image of Muhammad held in the minds of Islam's practitioners is a very real thing.   They are certain this Image is accurate and that if he doesn't exist presently in some after-life form, it, they believe, is an exact Image of Muhammad when he was alive.  This mental Idol is based on sayings, in part or whole, that were constructed by opposing Arab political forces over the centuries after he died. Make no mistake, people have been and will be killed who in any form (drawing, speech and actions) tarnish this venerated Image. 
NEW YORK, January 13: The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) today announced that it will be holding a demonstration in defense of the freedom of speech on Saturday, January 17 in Garland, Texas, outside a conference on “Islamophobia” that seeks to stifle opposition to jihad terror and restrict the freedom of speech, working to further the same Islamic law that led to the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre.
The Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect conference declares that it is trying to start a “movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message.” This theme is strikingly similar to the motive of the Charlie Hebdo jihad killers: after they had murdered twelve people in the Charlie Hebdo offices, one of the gunmen shouted, “We have avenged the Prophet Muhammad.”
The Stand With the Prophet event will feature John Esposito, a professor at Georgetown University and head of the Saudi-funded Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown; and Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and close friend of the mastermind of that bombing, the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman. Wahhaj has said: “said in 1992, “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.”
AFDI President Pamela Geller said in a statement: “Saturday’s Stand With the Prophet event seeks to combat ‘Islamophobes in America’ – in line with Islamic supremacist groups’ longstanding objective of defaming, smearing and marginalizing anyone who opposes the jihad agenda. They say they want to defend Muhammad – which means to silence those who notice that defenders of Muhammad just murdered sixteen people in Paris, and tens of thousands worldwide since 9/11.”
“Our AFDI rally,” Geller added, “will stand for the freedom of speech against all attempts, violent and stealthy, to impose Islamic blasphemy laws on Americans and stifle criticism of Muhammad and Islam. As Muhammad’s followers kill more and more people, we need critics of him more than ever – and free people need to stand up against these underhanded attempts to stifle all criticism of Islam, including honest investigations of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify Jew-hatred, violence, supremacism and oppression.”
Noted Geller: “The United States and other Western nations have paid insufficient attention to the fact that Muslim communities in the West have not made any concerted effort to expel supporters of jihad terror from their midst, and have done nothing at all to teach against the jihadist understanding of Islam, even though they ostensibly reject it. That shows the hypocrisy of this Stand With the Prophet event.”

Little children, keep yourselves from idols.

Why Muslims are in America

From the inauguration site at Wall St., after George Washington was sworn in as the first president of the United States, the founding fathers walked to nearby St. Paul's Chapel. Though the exact prayer is not recorded, it was here they did pray and dedicated the new country to God Almighty. It was commonly understood among them that this new nation depended upon the graciousness of the Creator as revealed in the Bible and if the country would ever depart from this grace, their new founded country would not stand.

This is evident in their writings including Franklin and Jefferson. These two are most often set apart as the least religious, but they were far more Christian than the majority of leaders today!

As Jonathan Cahn pointed out in The Harbinger, St. Paul's Chapel was the only building at ground zero that did not received substantial damage. Our America had received a warning.  Though an attack against the center of government power,  the Capitol Building or White House was averted, the financial and military centers were not.  The Pentagon was hit and of course the financial sector was badly wounded. America, seasoned and preserved by Christians, stood.  But America was warned.

The country was founded on Biblical, Christian principles and held together by the same.  It has always been much more than a financial empire only. But was there a reason you are here and your cousins are still in Europe, Asia, Africa? Or is there no reason, just chaos, random fortune?  To begin with, there was a known reason, religious freedom, escape the state run church. It couldn't have been financial since the first winter killed off half the Pilgrims and the second winter halved them again. Somehow this spirit remained throughout our brief history.  This I believe is what Yeshua meant when he called his followers the salt of the world. Our numbers are still large but it does not take much salt to spice a dish or preserve food from spoiling.

So if there is a reason, and just not more utter random chaos, what is the reason for Muslims coming to America?  It is opportunity, safety and most importantly religious:  But not perhaps as you may think.  The overlooked opportunity is to be able to freely read the Bible. Perhaps the Muslims coming to America are chosen, the elect of a billion who have the greatest opportunity, to find and believe in the God of the Bible, the only True God and Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah who he had sent.  Muslims are not here, though most may believe differently, to establish another Islamic state or even to remain Islamic Muslims, but to become Bible believing followers of God, to be part of his family and then in part to naturally help restore and preserve America.

It is your chance Muslims, submit to the love of God.  There is nothing in your writings to prevent you from getting a Bible and reading it. Nothing! Just old fearful traditions that lead to poverty, misery and separation from the True God of the Bible. You have no excuse to resist the will of the true God, who loves you and wants you as children.  So submit to that love and forever dispose of fear. In a sense you have made an escape, you are now in America, flawed and struggling but held together by God's grace and preserved by his salt. Believe in the love of God and don't turn away because of fear. The Word of God is everywhere in America, find it, study it for yourselves, you do not need to have someone explain it to you. It is right there, for you to read anytime, in any language. "If you abide in my Word, you will know the Truth and....." Take courage Muslim and find his Word, no one but you can stop this!
