Why Islam Is Not From God James 1:20

In accordance with my custom, I sat down with my coffee and watched the morning news. While I normally don’t put much faith or credence in the liberal news media, something caught my eye this morning. Osama Bin Laden is said to have delivered a new tape with the same old message on it. Yet again we are supposed fear this man who hides in caves and preaches a message of hate that is hidden behind a mask of religion. In the meantime here in America we fawn over Muslims stepping on eggshells not to offend them. While their brothers in their faith plot our destruction. Islam is a religion of violence and murder, the Bible is very clear about this subject in James 1:20, “For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”
I do not hate the Muslim people, I feel sorrow for them but I must examine their faith and their actions with the light of Scripture. Islam is not the faith of peace that some would have us believe, the word is Islam does not mean peace as they say, it means submission. The followers of this religion are ready to gain our submission at any price. Muslims cannot tolerate views that are in opposition to their own. This fact became evident after Muslim rioted over cartoons with the image of Muhammad in them. Allow me to describe this “Religion of Peace.”
Quran and Hadith say that women are less than men, it states they are deficient in intelligence, and advocates men beating their wives. The Quran demands the killing of non-believers, it also permit’s the waging of war on them until everyone converts to Islam or is subdued, feels humiliated, and pays Jizyah. The Jizyah Tax has its roots in Sura Tauba 9:29 in the Quran, it literally means compensation, it is for “protection” of Non-Muslims. In America we send people to jail for this. Christianity however is different Jesus said in Matthew 24:9-10, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
The Bible says is Romans 12:18-19, “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” These verse tell us that whenever possible that we are to try to get along with those around us. We see this in everyday life, on the internet, on TV, in the streets, Christians are made fun, mocked, and reviled, yet how many times do you see Christians burning down buildings in protest? In fact, the Bible is very clear that those who claim Jesus will suffer some form of persecution however mild it may be. 2 Timothy 3:12 says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
Islam is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, it seeks the destruction of any and all who stand in opposition to it. Jesus said blessed are the peacemakers, and it my hope than many Muslims will come to know the truth. However having said that it is important that warn people, according to God’s Word. We should be aware of Islam but not fear it because of the promise of I John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Excellent post brother, this is the kind of clearheaded and thoughtful response to this religion of hate that many today see it being forced upon them, either they submit to it or die.

In revelation we read that the apostle John saw all those who became tribulation Saints a vast number he could not count that were beheaded because of their faith in Jesus Christ, during that time many will wish they had listened to us Christians when we try to preach the truth to them.
But hope is not lost for if they cry out the named of Jesus they shall be saved...

Romans 10:13 For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."

Christians today realize that there have fallen alseep at the wheel. We must wake up and proclaim the truth of the Gospel, it is the only thing that will make a difference.
