I address all peaceful Muslims who sincerely believe that their faith is a religion of peace; yet, feel threatened by the increasing separation from mainstream Americans. We want to love, respect, and trust you. But that must be won by your actions.
I believe that you believe what you believe. You really think that Islam is peaceful and will bring world peace. If Islam devoured the world there would be peace for a short time following the fall of the last free nation and the indoctrination of several generations of children. But then (or perhaps before) the fallen nature of man would have no restraints and you would see the horror of totalitarianism. You would witness a world of bondage, slavery, sexual perversion cloaked in religious dogma. You would see a nightmare like none you’ve ever imagined nor has entered the mind of a human being. Unless you look at some of the places around the world where Islam reigns. They are nations of fear and desperation, bondage and poverty of spirit. Women are enslaved. Creativity is crushed. Violence and evil rule.
The peace would be shortlived. It would disintegrate in the turmoil of the spirits that animate all substitute religions (as opposed to a relationship with Yahweh). The violent and martial spirits of Islam would surface. The anti-semetic spirit that animates totalitarian worldviews would arise and not be satiated until the genocide was complete. Then it would turn and devour everything human as Satan does wherever he manifests.
See here’s the TRUTH.
Behind every doctrine, belief, or faith that denies Yahweh–the ONLY living God–is a spiritual distortion which the Bible calls a “stronghold.” It is a lie or half-truth that presents itself as the truth. All stronholds have the following in common:
- They substitute people, animals, idols, or false gods for Yahweh.
- They appeal to religious rules and regulations that appease the god being worshiped.
- They require absolute obedience based on law, not love. They enslave people. Liberty and freedom of worship are their absolute enemies.
- They deny what God says about himself.
- They are spiritual in nature, thus very difficult to get at.
- They exchange the truth of God for a lie.
- They raise up zealots who would kill those who disagree or diverge.
Since you have embraced several cognitive distortions: “Allah is god.” “Mohammad is his prophet.” and “Our religion is a religion of peace.” you have embraced three strongholds which have set themselves up against knowing Yahweh and his Messiah.
I suggest therefore, if you are a sincere person, that you take the following action-steps:
Embrace the true Prince of Peace. Yahweh is the Savior of all men and women, nations and tongues. He is not a Western God but the God the entire cosmos. According to the Apostles, Jesus, His unique Son, is his ONLY means of salvation for ALL. The bible calls Jesus–“Prince of Peace” or “Peaceful Leader.” He is the exact representation of Yahweh’s character/person. He is alive, not dead. He lives and is with you now if you are still reading this post.
Believe the truth. The truth has power to demolish “strongholds” and every pretense that sets itself up against the knowledge of Yahweh–God. Contrary to popular notions, not all truth is relative. The truth that God himself has proclaimed or that Jesus has stated is the absolute, TRUTH.
The power of a lie is broken only by the truth. As long as we remain in the age of grace, Jesus is saving the world, not judging it. This truth breaks down the lie. Then when the lie is exposed, we are free to choose. Have you come into freedom or bondage when you converted to Islam?
What about those who choose against our God or Jesus?
He does not tell us to kill them or to rid the world of them. True disciples of Jesus and of God the Father, are commanded to LOVE them. We do that by speaking truth (hoping to awaken people everywhere from their demonic dream). We serve those we love. We pray for them. We care for them in acts of kindness and compassion. That’s the fruit of true disciples of Jesus. And . . . I’m convinced that many world religions, including Islam, have just enough of the truth in them to lead people to the Heart that has created and today rules the Universe–Yahweh, the ONLY living God and His Messiah–Jesus of Nazareth. Even your own prophet spoke of Jesus and his importance. Why did he even bother to acknowledge Jesus?
Take a Stand! If you are sincere in your claim that you are a peaceful Muslim, if you denounce the behavior of your fellow Muslims who have chosen to live out the Qu’ran literally and follow the violent lifestyles of Mohammed and Suleiman, and other champions of your faith, then stand publicly against their understanding of Jihad. Take a stand against the notion that “Sharia Law” is the destiny of the peoples of the world. Speak out against the lying and deceit that goes on as some Muslims seek to deceive in order to become accepted. Under the strategy of assimilation they are a 21st Century Trojan Horse in the midst of the nations where they live. Anyone who lies to win converts is not of God. Jesus said that liars are of their father, the Devil. For the Devil is the Father of Lies and has lied from the beginning. That’s his atmosphere. The bible later states in several places that the Lake of Fire awaits ALL who LIE! True disciples of Yahweh or of Jesus, may lie–but they cannot justify it, nor will they go unpunished for lying. Allah, on the other hand, approves of lying–that is why all Muslims (peaceful or jihadist) must ultimately decided how one God justfies lying and how the other God judges lying. They are not the same God. Which will you follow, the god of lies or the God of truth?
Stand against your personal sin. Embrace a jihad of righteousness in your inner being. Jihad, “struggle,” should be against your own personal sin just as each follower of Jesus has confronted his own sin-nature and reckoned it crucified with Jesus. We put off the old and put on the new committed to living peacefully and in love with our neighbors–regardless of their faith. We only expect the same freedoms. Islam does not respect that freedom.
Make A Choice! The great prophet Joshua said to the people,
“And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord [Yahweh].”” (Joshua 24:15, ESV)
I want to challenge you who claim that Islam is peaceful and is not out to place everyone under Sharia law or enslave the world, to TAKE A STAND! You should be denouncing and refuting those who so interpret the Qu’ran to say that Islam is to rule the world. You should be supporting the freedom and liberty that you claim to value as citizens in this free nation. You should recognize and support the free choice of every human being to worship as their conscience dictates. NO ONE has the right to force ANYONE to embrace a particular religion or dogma. We are free. And when someone becomes a follower of Jesus, they have been set free from sin and from religion.
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1, ESV)
The ONE TRUE God values FREEDOM that is what originally made the United States great and Free. We have traditionally been a nation with open arms. We welcome ALL who will come and EMBRACE OUR VALUES, SPEAK OUR LANGUAGE, and UPHOLD OUR FREEDOMS. That is why you are welcome here. The price of freedom: is to stand against Tyranny wherever it is found. Will you stand with me, with us? By standing up without fear and confronting the evils of radical Muslims, you will win our respect and trust.

Recently my wife, Marcy, read me a quote from an “Open Doors” ministry memo. Islamic extremists (devout Mohammedans) issued an ultimatum following “prayers on July 18.” Following PRAYERS! [which tells as much about their god as it does them] Are you ready?
We offer Christians three choices: convert to Islam, pay the Jizya [a protection tax], or you will have ‘nothing but the sword.’”
In other words, their god tells them that either you convert, submit, or die. This is the core of Islamic devotion to Mohammed.
The memo goes on to report that Mosul was home to 3,000 Christians before the attacks by ISIS—the Islamic State in June 2014. Now the majority of those followers of Jesus Christ have had to flee. Why? Because the god of death has issued an ultimatum against the God of Life and His people—Jews and followers of Christ.
This is not a new war. This is not a new version of Islam. Nor is it merely a human war. We’ve seen this all through history.
I was amazed when I heard Bill O’Reilly say that he just didn’t get it where all the antisemitism came from in history. I’ve watched O’Reilly for years. I appreciate his take on things. But I was shocked that a student of history who also testifies to being a Christian doesn’t know where it came from.
[True followers of Christ do not go around forcing anyone to believe in Yahweh or Jesus. We certainly present Him as the Truth, but that is because Truth is who HE revealed himself to be. We simply present HIS claims. People are free to choose or not. God grants this liberty, this freedom to all human beings. Therefore no one in heaven or earth, human or non-human can take it away. That’s why genuine followers of Christ (I can’t speak for all who claim the title “Christian” because horrors have been perpetrated upon the world in the name of God by those who did not know Him). Those Jesus said were His true followers, understand Him and will not follow another, or DO THINGS THAT DENY HIS CHARACTER. They are possessed by the Spirit of Christ.
ISIS is a typical example of the anti-Yahweh, anti-Christ spirit. This is the demonic principality that was in Haman, Herod the Great [who, sometime between 4BC-2BC, had all Jewish boys below the age of 2 murdered], Mohammad, Catholic zealots of the Inquisition, countless others in the dark ages, in Hitler and his SS, and today continues to possess Islam’s decadent followers of allah. I assure you demon oppression and possession is real, not figurative. I have been involved in deliverance ministry in the past and I assure you, what I’ve encountered there is the same reality that Jesus encountered in His own ministry. I didn’t just read about deliverance ministry, I live it. So I recognize it when I see it.
Jesus Christ said that you can know a people by the spiritual animus and character of their god. The god of Islam demands that people die. The God and Father of Jesus Christ demands that people not murder one another: “Thou Shalt not Kill” and “Love your enemies.” The Spirit of Yahweh’s unique Son—Jesus Christ—animates His true followers. You will not find them threatening, killing, hating, and hunting down those who will not accept their worldview. They serve the only true God—a God of LIFE! The author of love, who has chosen to reveal Himself through the Messiah as “Father.” And not a dysfunctional father either.
Allah is a god of death who has no son.
Yahweh is the author of Life and love, and testifies that He has a Son–Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
They obviously are NOT the same god.
Christians MUST take a stand in prayer against this evil demonic god and his demonized followers. Jesus identified the Father of all (including the Jews) who would commit murder and say they’re doing it for God . . . Their father, allah, is the father of lies. The Pharisee’s father was Satan himself–the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. Hear Jesus:
“ . . . your father the devil. A liar and murderer.”
You can easily know who a person is following as his god by the fruit that follows. Jesus said of FALSE prophets (including, and especially Mohammad) that “ . . . you shall know them by their fruits.” What do their lives produce. Even their words can fool you, but their character and what they leave in their wake will not (if you have eyes to see and ears to hear).
Those who love and follow Christ are too busy winning the world for Christ to hate people and want to massacre them. We will win the world, not through violence but through the love and transformative power of God upon the human heart. Those who further both nationalistic Zionism and orthodox Islam, do so by threats and murder. They have one and the same god–Satan. Their fruit proves it.
If they really thought their god was all powerful, he could defend his own reputation. He wouldn’t need mindless, robotic, evil murderers to do his dirty work for him. No this exposes the rotten core of Islam for all the world to see. And we’ve seen it before. The Ottoman Empire was destroyed by the West on 9/11/1835. It will be consumed again, but not by the West. The West is lost in a politically correct dream. Islam will be destroyed when Yahweh destroys allah, his followers– all liars and murderers who have not repented of their evil deeds–in the Lake of Fire at the coming of Christ.
I speak to the church. Don’t let the world (islam or otherwise) squeeze you into its mold. Allah, the Canaanite moon-god should NEVER be mistaken for Yahweh–the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Creator of everything seen and unseen.
We are to put on the spiritual armor and STAND against the evil forces and principalities of this world. Jesus will deal with them when He returns. But we must stand in the Love of the Father, by speaking the truth and not allowing others to be convinced that we have the same God. Those who still seek truth and God need to see the difference as we glorify Him in our lives.
The video warns that America is at risk from Islam. But the entire world is at risk. Please learn all you can about this spiritual evil called Islam.

Part 2 of 2 [Wait, I want to read Part 1 first]
DISCLAIMER: If you could hear my voice it would not be enraged, but insistent and urgent. I am deeply concerned for those Muslims and non-Muslims who I believe are asleep, or perhaps waiting on the sidelines to see how things shake down. I am most concerned for those who are followers of Jesus, to hear the Lord’s urgency that the time is short. My sincere desire is for ALL to come to a saving encounter with a loving God, not the god of Islam (where there is no love, no forgiveness, no assurance of righteousness and salvation). I want my readers to encounter the living God, Yahweh, and his truth expressed through loving engagement and most clearly in Yahweh’s Son, Jesus of Nazareth—Messiah.
We must not accept the view that Islam is a peaceful religion.
This view is at best, naive or at worst, an intentional lie; but, BOTH are a demonic deception. Only its nominal adherents–American converts, and the politically correct–would fall for such a lie in the light of Islam’s history (remember, our American youth are pretty much historically bankrupt. Consider their teachers. Then consider their teachers’ professors in the politically correct, historically castrated secular temples of tolerance, where history is remade in its authors’ images). This lie of Islam’s peacefulness is being exposed by many brave voices. Those voices are criticized and silenced by a new alliance.
The political left in the United States has formed what one author called, “an unholy alliance,” sustaining and maintaining the lie through political correctness. The alliance utilizes the tactic of “labeling.” If you disagree with someone of a different race or religion you will be labeled by them as a bigot, a racist, an islamophobe, or whatever new doublespeak they invent this week with their new bedfellows–the jihadists.
If the politically correct, pluralistic elite really cared about Muslims, they would open their eyes. They would face reality. They would learn the history and dogma of Islam. They’d compare it to the self-revelation of God in the Bible and realize–and help Muslims to realize–their error and escape from their captivity to post-modernism and the resurgence of oppressive Islam. Those who appease and accommodate Islam today, will not find Islam accommodating them tomorrow. Unless eyes open, Islam will be the religion of the land and sharia law, not the Constitution, will govern.
As I said in my book, “Blitzkrieg” is on its way again. Change will come fast. Change will unleash terror. . . . Unless, we do something NOW!
Doesn’t anyone see the obvious deception of Islam? Are you tired of the deception, of being lied to? Of course we know that in the last days, people will have their eyes closed until it’s too late. And they will maintain their freedom to embrace alliances against Jesus of Nazareth and his followers until their freedoms no longer exist under the legal system of the Antichrist (Mahdi). Then, according to the Bible, they will cry out and long for death but will not be able to find it (Rev. 9:6). In my opinion, this is the suffering that awaits our unwillingness to confront the darkness of Islam before it’s too late to do so. The Bible calls it the Great Tribulation.
Look to Europe, the UK, and the Netherlands. Listen to the brave voices willing to confront this present darkness. Look at the human rights violations–yes, include Christians too (many do not include suffering Christians among their concerns over human rights violations. Satan blinds them to see only what he wants them to see.)
Yet with all this, DON’T respond in hatred toward Muslims.
Hate their religion, YES! But separate that from the people. They are victims of deception. Love them by sharing truth, love, and the Good News of the Kingdom of Jesus with them. Believe me, this will not be THEIR response to us. Herein lies the truth of which worldview is truly of God–How do you treat other PEOPLE who disagree with you? Satan’s children hate and do violence no matter what they call themselves. God’s children return good for evil, truth for lies, love for hatred.
Our God will never require us to kill you if you don’t believe us . . . or Him. He has given EVERY human being freedom to choose what he/she will believe. Yahweh (God of the Jews and Christians), is the ONLY source of truth. He is the ONLY source of freedom. Freedom is your right. Freedom is my right. Freedom is the right of every Muslim trapped in the Devil’s doctrine of Islam. No one has the right to take away what only Yahweh can give. Yahweh preserves freedom; Allah steals it away. Allah is bondage (legalism). Allah is darkness though he proclaims himself an angel of light.
I agree with Walid Shoebat:
“The very descriptions of the devil in the Bible are the very descriptions of Allah in the Koran. The very descriptions of the Antichrist in the Bible are the very descriptions of the Mahdi of Islam.”
What I’m about to say is not about sequence (timing), but consequence (results):
Before God and as an ambassador of Jesus Christ of Nazareth–Lord and Savior of heaven and earth–I submit that:
- Yahweh alone is God. There is no other. Only pretenders.
- Yahweh is ONE God.
- Jesus Christ is his Only Begotten Son (the right Hand of the Father), crucified, murdered by evil men, but raised to life. Now holding ALL authority in heaven and on earth.
- He is giving us all time to turn to Him and discover the Beautiful News of the Royal Reign of Yahweh.
- He stands ready to return to this world—not as a Muslim evangelist (as the Koran teaches)–but as the Judge of all the living and the dead.
- He will destroy every enemy of Yahweh by his Word and establish the Kingdom of Love (NOTICE: HE will destroy, not us).
- We will be seated with Christ and judge the supernatural powers behind all Antichrist worldviews.
- They will all be destroyed in the Lake of Fire–Satan, the Mahdi, Allah, and all his demonic hordes (jin), along with all those who, by their own free choice, served them willingly and knowingly and whose names were not recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
- God will remake the heavens and earth. The New Heavens and New Earth will be the home of righteousness for those who loved Jesus and his appearing.
By the way, if you read The Revelation of Jesus Christ from our library–the Bible–you’ll find that Yahweh and His Son, Jesus will be victorious over Allah at Armageddon. The nations that surround Israel and have sought the life of the believing Jews will be totally destroyed by the Messiah . He is God’s choice because of His righteous life and sacrificial love.
“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9–11, ESV)
If you are Muslim and have not understood these things; and if God’s Holy Spirit is giving you insight and opening your heart to God’s love for you, why not turn to Him. If you have a genuine heart after God, ask Him to show you more or Himself. Tell Him you’d rather know his love and know that your sins have been forgiven, than to hope that you might make it into Allah’s paradise. God’s provision for your freedom cost Him everything, including His only Son, Jesus the Messiah. God has made it possible for you to turn from religion to Him. Simply turn from your way to his, from Allah to Him. He is waiting to transform you supernaturally to truly know him. If you want the true faith of peace and love, then you need to know Your heavenly Father. He is the heart at the head of the Universe. You are not his slave, but can be a beloved child—a member of His own household. He will not hold you at a distance as Allah does. He will embrace you in His presence. He will welcome you home—the home where your heart always longed to belong.

How can we reject Islam as the evil that it is, yet love Muslims?
Our response as followers of Jesus must never be that of the world. We are not to be Muslim-bashers or hateful toward an entire group of people. We must not fall into Islam’s error–lumping all “Kafir” into the same basket. Nor should we dehumanize Muslims as Islam does the “people of the Book”–Jews and followers of Jesus.
Just because one woman is immoral is no reason to say that all women must be immoral. Just because a dentist lies to a patient, does not mean that all dentists lie to their patients. Generalization with regard to people-groups is “all or nothing thinking”–which is always a cognitive distortion–a lie.
So . . . How can we love Muslims?
1. Understand that they are people whom Yahweh (the living God) loves deeply. He loves them so deeply that He gave His Son for them. Jesus died to set all people everywhere free from bondage to religions and bondage to sin. Only when they are free from their rules, regulations, predjuces, and hatred can they truly experience that love. We must demonstrate His love toward them as individuals and people who, like us, desperately need a Savior.
2. Realize that many do not know their own religion. Experts in Islam say that the majority of Muslims do not know Islam. They are in bondage to what others have told them about their religion. We should foster a growing awareness that many Muslims do not truly know or understand their own theology. Fewer still know the history of Islam and the Ottoman empire.
The same is the case for many who attend or practice various religions. Few really ever can spell out just what it is they believe. Fewer still understand more than the basics of their theology. Fewer still know the history of their faith or religion. When all this is taken together, it’s more than understandable that many Muslims do not know what Islam believes or where it originated. Ask ten Muslims who “Allah” is and you will probably get ten different answers.
Many people would argue, fight, and die for their misunderstandings rather than invest the time to learn what their faith really teaches. Jihadists have taken the time to understand who Mohammad is and what the Qu’ran really teaches at its core. They are the faithful of their religion. They are the ones who are living the life of the prophet to its fullest. They are simply living out what the Qu’ran (Koran) really teaches.
In the same respect, Jesus taught and lived certain things. Only those who really know the Lord and understand what he lived and taught are true disciples of his (1 Jn. 2:4-6). The great majority of “CHristians” are clueless. Jesus said that their end will be shocking to them (Mt. 7:21-23).
The problem with Islam is that once you know what’s it’s really all about, you either have to embrace it as truth and live the life of the true jihadists or depart from it altogether. There is only middle ground for the nominal and the uninformed–those who deny the Prophet Mohammed and his book. That’s why terrorists see NO ONE besides themselves as true believers. “Peaceful” Muslims are apostates in their eyes for they have rejected an absolute of the faith–jihad. Genuine Muslims are seeing Islam as it really is and they recognize–and disdain–those who water down the faith and life of Muhammad.
Islam produces oppression, bondage, a low view of human life, murder, lies, everything that Jesus came to put an end to. Yet, I have a cousin who is a Muslim. She is kind, compassionate, peace-loving, and open to Jesus. How can that be? Simple . . . she does not really know what she has embraced.
So we can love Muslims because many just want to live their lives free of all the religious demands and enjoy life and liberty with a minimum of moral constraint. So most Muslims do not support or agree with the terrorist/jihadist. They see jihad as an inner, spiritual struggle. They are not likely a threat to anyone except the fundamental Muslim who would just as soon wipe them out as anyone else. AND if the jihadists ever do get in power, you can see what their reign will be like by looking at the nations where they hold power. Their track-record is not hidden unless your head is in the sand.
Want Islam, then look at those nations and you’ll see what you’re asking for. Look at what’s happening to Europe and you’ll see what pure, fundamental, true to its roots Islam produces and encourages. Islam is a religion of hate and murder. That’s why I warn two groups: the body of Christ, and Muslims who don’t agree with fundamental, historic Islam and believe their religion is a religion of “peace.”
3. Realize that there is spiritual reality behind Islam. Islam is not just a religion. Islam has a religious arm. But it is primarily a weltanschauung (worldview–a way of life) that embraces the whole. It is a political, economic, sociological, and religious way of life. Behind it stand spiritual realitites. Islam is the movement of spiritual principalties in the heavenly places (Eph. 6.12). It’s God, Allah (in Hebrew–The Destroyer) is a God of hatred, revenge, murder and lies. He is the beast empowered by the Dragon, spoken of in our Book of Revelation. That means that demonic power presents it, props it up, and keeps it going. Many, not all, of its leaders are unwittingly empowered by spiritual beings.
A striking analogy is that of Adolf Hitler and his Third Reich. I have studied the Occult roots of the Third Reich and Hitler’s ascendency to power. I can’t tell you the times I’ve heard someone say, “How did he get so powerful?” “How could anyone have believed or followed him?”
Generally speaking, rational, western people do not try to understand spiritual realities. They have been educated in a dysfunctional, anti- supernatural taxonomy. Demonic power cannot be understood rationally, because it’s irrational–it’s spiritual, demonic.
The supernatural cannot be known or understood by the natural or carnal mind. God alone can open the mind to understand the spiritual. The Bible says it this way:
“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14, ESV)
The way I know an apple tree is not by the seed or the leaves or the bark on the tree. I know an apple tree because, every fall it produces APPLES–not bananas or grapes. The tree produces its own fruit. Jesus said that you’ll know false leaders by their character. You’ll know their source by their behavior–their actions (Mt. 7:15-20). Hitler’s behavior, his kingdom was darkness, evil, and antisemitic.
Look around. What does Islam produce? Subscribe to some of the world watchdog news services that monitor Islam’s fruit–darkness, evil, human rights violations, and antisemitism. Muslim leaders hate the Jews (and Christians). Their organizations use our freedoms and rights to renounce and displace “people of the Book” (Bible). If Allah attacks God’s people, then he is not God. He is God’s enemy.
Listen to those who WERE Muslims. They have something to teach the politically correct, and supernaturally naive. Their lives are now threatened because they have departed from the faith. Listen to their insider view of Islam. They are educated people who have had the light bulb turn on for them. Listen carefully to what they say. They will tell you what spirit lies behind Islam. Listen to the warning voices. Listen to Islam’s own agenda and those experts who understand it.
Jesus said, that anyone who TRULY wants to know the truth will come to know it (1 Timothy 2:2-4). Those who don’t want to hear have covered their ears and don’t want truth. They have no place for God in their hearts, because they have believed their father, the father of lies (Jn. 8:42-47). Muslims who are serious about Islam serve the beast-god who is in rebellion against the One True God–Yahweh–the God of Heaven and earth.
The way we love Muslims must flow out of our understanding of the deep, spiritual bondage in which they are locked. The deception that has taken them captive, requires a revelation of the love of God. That is the ONLY thing that will set the captive free (Isa. 61:1-3).
4. Treat Muslims the way you would want to be treated by them. Would you want to be accepted? Accept them (as individuals). Would you want to receive kindness? Be kind to them. Would you want to be free, allow them freedom (as long as they do not use that freedom to put you, your children, and grandchildren in bondage). Would you want to be included? Include them. Pray for them. Care for them. Share what you have with them.
Include them as you fellowship with other believers. Jesus said that as we love our Christian brothers and sisters, ALL people (including Muslims) will KNOW that you are my disciples.
If you are a follower of Jesus, you are to love ALL men and women. Muslims are NOT OUR ENEMIES. Satan is. His bondage and slavery are our enemies. Islam is our enemy. Muslims need to see the love of God. They already see enough hatred. Let’s not participate in the spirit that animates their religion.
I choose to love Muslims, by sharing the Truth with them. Won’t you join me?
QUESTION: How do YOU think we should respond to Muslims?
