Strong Religious AND Politically Incorrect Content
I was reading this story, a story I seriously doubt you will see anywhere in Pravda West:
I took great offense with this comment (incidentally, in case you are one who thinks I walk in lock-step with Glenn Beck, this is a subject on which I vehemently disagree with him):
The controversial preacher also showed no love for Justice Thomas, as he told his audience that, though Thomas “looks like” them, he is “worshipping some other God.” He also made an intriguing comparison about the God of the Hebrew Bible and the Lord depicted in the Quran.
Wright is WRONG – PERIOD!
This is a political blog page, and I am well aware that our culture has grown adverse to open discussions about religion, but this is a claim that should not be allowed to stand. If you have not read the Bible and the Qur’an, I strongly urge you to do so. Pay special attention to the prophecy in both. From a purely secular perspective, they cannot both be true because they are 180 degrees opposed to each other. The Islamic Mahdi is as close to a 100% match for the Biblical antichrist as one is likely to ever find. In addition, if you read the Qur’an, you will find that Allah uses several names for himself that the Bible uses for Lucifer. Allah even calls himself the great deceiver, the exact description the Bible give of Satan. Furthermore, the Bible teaches that the antichrist will try to convince the world that he is God. He will even take human form and work miracles. The Bible mentions the names of many ancient nations, regions and peoples who will be aligned with the antichrist, and that will try to destroy Israel toward the end times. If we map out all these ancient nations, regions and peoples named, today, they are all Islamic nations. In fact, the only name I am aware of associated with prophecy that is not Islamic today traces to the region of modern Spain and is mentioned in relation to the merchants who mourn the fall of New Babylon.
But the strongest evidence – to me – that Allah is not Yahweh is that Yahweh promised Abraham that He would guard Israel to the end of time. For the Qur’an to be true, God would have had to break His promise, placing Him in contradiction with Himself. This would mean He is not God. But the best evidence is that the followers of Allah have repeatedly tried to destroy Israel, and Israel has repeatedly prevailed – just as Biblical Prophecy tells us it will.
Now, why is this important to us, especially to those Americans who do not believe in either the Bible or the Qur’an? Simple: Islamic prophecy demands world domination, and the submission of all living persons. Refusal results in beheading; yet another direct comparison of Biblical Prophecy. Now, there are Muslims who will tell you that they do not agree with this prophecy, but that isn’t true. If they are following the teaching of the Quran, what they most likely disagree with is when to launch the global jihad: or, more accurately, who can declare it. The majority of Muslims are of the opinion that only the Caliphe (i.e. and Islamic Pope) can declare global jihad, and to have a Caliphe, there must be a Caliphate, or Islamic empire. Well, our media will not report on it, but this is exactly what is happening in the Middle East and the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood. Islamic leaders have already declared their intentions to reform the Caliphate (The head that was dead but lives again from revelations?), and that, when it is finally formed, the head – or Caliphe – will be seated in Turkey (The end times attack on Israel is connected to a force led from Antioch, which was in what is now modern day Turkey).
Look, we are all free to believe what we will, but some of the prophecies involved were written more than 2,500 years ago now, and they are not the vague suggestions many skeptics often claim them to be. Many of these prophecies are very specific and, as modern events are starting to reveal, extremely accurate – especially when you understand the cultural context in which they were written and/or the allegories and analogies to which they refer. Either way, one thing is decidedly true: Allah cannot be Yahweh without the entirety of the Bible being a book of intentional deceit. I would hope that this reality, as well as this post will lead you to look into these matters more closely, but the thing we must come to understand is that Allah is not Yahweh.
[For a concise and fully cited comparison, I would suggest "God’s War on Terror" by Walid Shoebat.]
