(Islam is idol worship. Islam is a caustic blend of paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone "prophet", who made no prophecies, conceived his religion to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money. He was a terrorist. Islam spreads the lie that Jesus never even died on a cross. That alone makes it demonic.
You can always know a false god. False gods always demand the blood of innocents. Whenever the innocent and just are being slain, there you will find Moloch the god Ba'al; always masquerading. The god of Muslims is revealed as a tyrant who demands Muslims and all others submit to him.
Whereas in the New Testament, Jesus revealed to Christians a God who is a loving Father, who wants us to come to Him via free will. In the Old Testament (Exodus 34:6) the real God revealed Himself as "merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth". He is the Creator of the Universe, the God of Love, and Lord of Life. The God of Israel is this true God. He insists "Thou shall not kill the innocent and just".
When a Muslim declares that Islam is a religion of peace, he/she is either ignorant of the Koran (Qur'an), or is deceitfully thinking of this "peace", as it extends only to those within the Muslim Community. The deceit is that they will not tell you exactly what they mean. According to the Qur'an: "Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers" Surah 48:29. "Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush..." Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29:
PICKTHAL: "Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.". Please note that there is not a single verse in the entire Christian Bible that contains this "open-ended", universal command to kill/or be ruthless to unbelievers.)
(The koran should not be burned as a publicity stunt to draw attention to the fact that it is antichrist or a counterfeit religion. This is a mistake. To me it is a ploy to divert attention from the need to refute the false religion islam. There are those who are out to gain 15 min of fame at any cost, even American lives. This proposed action by Rev. Terry Jones is similar to a jessie jackson or al sharpton stunt to gain fame. It will only cause more confusion.) Story Reports
Satan The Father of Lies
Though Satan has been defeated by Jesus Christ, he continues as an unrelenting foe in his warfare against God and His people. So it is important that we be aware of the tactics and ways of our great adversary. The apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians: "Lest Satan should get advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices" (2 Cor. 2:11).
The Lord said to the Pharisees who hated Him: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not" (Jn. 8:44-45).
Judas and Satan
A quite different illustration of the way and victory of Satan in his work as an adversary of Christ is seen in Judas Iscariot. He was chosen as the twelfth apostle by the Lord, who knew all along his real character. Jesus once said to the twelve: "Have not I chosen twelve, and one of you is the devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon, for he it was that should betray him" (Jn. 6:70-71).
We will see that Satan later took possession of Judas and used him as his instrument in the betrayal of Christ to the multitude that arrested him and brought him to the high priest and elders. But before this happened, Judas was a thief, stealing out of the treasury bag of the apostolic band as John 12:6 tells us. He was covetous and loved money. So we find him going to the chief of priests of the Jews and saying to them" "What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought to betray him" (Matt. 26:14-16).
The next thing we read of Judas is that when the Passover supper was ended, the devil "now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son to betray him" (Jn. 13:2). Though Judas accompanied the Lord in His marvelous ministry three and one-half years, heard all His wonderful words, and witnessed His gracious acts of mercy and miracles, his heart was untouched by all. He carried out his thievery and covetousness which opened his heart to carry out Satan's evil design.
At the last supper, the Lord dipped a morsel of bread in sauce and gave it to Judas. This was a custom of the host to honor a guest and it is indicated as a pledge of love. We read that "after the sop Satan entered into him (Judas). He then having received the sop went immediately out; and it was night" (Jn. 13:15-30). Judas turned his back upon his last appeal of love from the Lord and Satan possessed him to do his work of betraying the Savior to His enemies with an insincere kiss.
How Satan Operates by Demons
We previously noted that Satan is spoken of as "the prince of this world" on three occasions (Jn. 12:31; 14:30; 16:11). The word "prince" here means "ruler." A prince is head of a principality and has a kingdom. So we are told that our warfare is "against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph. 6:12). Satan thus heads up a great kingdom of evil. He has a great host of demons that are evil spirits in his kingdom.
In the book of Revelation we read about a future time when there will be war in heaven between Michael and his angels, and the dragon, "called the Devil, and Satan," and his angels. Then Satan and his angels will be cast out of heaven on the earth (Rev. 12:7-9). Also in Revelation 9:1-11 we have a prophetic scene in symbolical language; locusts torment men upon the earth. It is stated that they have a king over them who is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name is Abaddon and Apollyon, which means "destroyer" in Hebrew and Greek respectively. This represents the Devil and his demons, whose purpose in the future day will be to torment and destroy mankind.
These Scriptures tell us clearly that Satan has a great host of fallen angels who are under his rule and control, and that he carries on his diabolic work through these spirit beings who are lying and seducing spirits (see 1 Ki. 22:22; 1 Tim. 4:1).
God of this world. Furthermore, as the god of this world system, Satan has authority over a federation that also includes all of the unsaved and fallen humanity whom he takes captive and uses at his will (2 Tim. 2:26). The apostle John wrote: (1Jn 5:19) And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. We are also told that "the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not" (2 Cor. 4:4).
God of this world. Furthermore, as the god of this world system, Satan has authority over a federation that also includes all of the unsaved and fallen humanity whom he takes captive and uses at his will (2 Tim. 2:26).
The Bible thus clearly reveals that behind every pagan idol there is a demon and that the sacrifices offered to such idols are offered to demons and not the the one and only true God.
Associated with the whole satanic, pagan system of idolatry were many other demon activities about which Moses of old warned the children of Israel. In the book of Deuteronomy we read: "When thou art come in the land which the Lord they God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all who do such things are an abomination unto the Lord" (Deut. 18:9-12).
(This would include all of islam. Controlled by the 'god" of this world system, satan. Burning a koran is in my opinion useless.) Story Reports
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The government turned up the pressure Tuesday on the head of a small Florida church who plans to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, warning him that doing so could endanger U.S. troops and Americans everywhere.
But the Rev. Terry Jones insisted he would go ahead with his plans, despite criticism from the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, the White House and the State Department, as well as a host of religious leaders.
Jones, who is known for posting signs proclaiming that Islam is the devil's religion, says the Constitution gives him the right to publicly set fire to the book that Muslims consider the word of God.
Gen. David Petraeus warned Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press that "images of the burning of a Quran would undoubtedly be used by extremists in Afghanistan — and around the world — to inflame public opinion and incite violence." It was a rare example of a military commander taking a position on a domestic political matter.
