Freedom to Worship Allah

Anyone interested in the instructions of the Qu’ran in relation to Islamic infidels and it’s commission to it’s followers on how to handle them, read it Hasan Simply Following The Koran -Ian Vincent.

Anyone continuing to believe this is a religion of peace, as George Bush told us shortly after 9/11,  needs to wake up. We see the evidence of it’s death and destruction here in America even as we see it on their own land. We have allowed this religion to come onto our country, and because of the twist in the true meaning of our constitution in regards to freedom of religion, we allowed them to practice their maniacal beliefs. Now, here we are seeing its effects in the murder of our own people!

From Fox News:

Hasan — a radical Muslim — reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic, before unloading more than 100 rounds at soldiers preparing to ship off to Iraq and Afghanistan.

I seriously doubt this is anywhere near what the constitution means when it speaks of freedom, the right to bear arms and the freedom to worship. But, we have sat by in silence as we have watched time and again when the true meaning of those words erased by those governing in high places whose job it is to uphold the constitution, not to interpret it according their beliefs.

From the same article:

On Oct. 7, al-Khattab posted a message on the Web calling on Allah to carry out “wrath on the Jewish occupiers of Palestine & their supporters.”

“Please throw liquid drain cleaner in their faces,” he wrote. ” … burn their flammable sukkos while they sleep … Ya Allah (Oh God) answer my duaa (prayer).” (“Sukkos” refers to the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, during which Jews build and eat their meals in outdoor huts known as “sukkahs,” which represent the huts the Jews lived in during their exodus from Egypt.)

Al Khattab insists that his hatred is protected by the First Amendment. “If it was a threat, I’d be in jail,” the 41-year-old al-Khattab told FoxNews.com in October.  (emphasis mine)

Another article from Fox

Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News’ senior legal analyst said the posting is “absolutely protected” by the First Amendment.

“All innocuous speech is absolutely protected and all speech is innocuous when there is time for more speech to rebut or address it,” he told Foxnews.com. “So even if this Web site were to call on Muslim freedom fighters to kill Jews, as long as there is time for someone else to challenge this with words, then the originals words are lawful.” (emphasis mine)

What kind of madness, or better yet – evil – are we dealing with here when statements such as this are explained away as protected by our own constitution which was originally put into place to protect Americans? What about protection from enemies foreign and domestic? What about our friends and ally – Israel?  This coming from the same think tank that would condemn Christians from speaking the truth according to the teachings of the one true God – Jehovah- and classifying those teachings as “hate crimes”.  This is madness.

Any Christians out there who still believe it is SAFE to call Jehovah “Allah”?  See my article – Is Allah the Great I AM?.

Maybe I have missed it, but I have yet to hear much of anything from President Obama, who commended Muslims for their “contributions” to this country during Ramadan, but seems to have very little to say about a massacre against people comprising his army of which he is Commander and Chief.  Those very soldiers who died at the hands of a maniac in the name of Allah while making preparations to carry out his command of deployment.

Those set in place to guard America have failed!

Psalm 46

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song for Alamoth.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.  Selah

4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

7 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.  Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.  Selah

Is Allah The Great “I AM”?

Last night I was reading a booklet on how to share the gospel with Muslims. The booklet stated this:

When we witness to Muslims, we may safely use the name “Allah” for God. It is the name Arab Christians use, and to use any other name would only bring confusion and be a disadvantage in our witness. The Muslim’s concept of Allah is incomplete.  (emphasis mine)

Kinda stops you right in your tracks, doesn’t it? It did me.

Names are more than just a better way of calling out “hey you!” Names have significant meanings as to the attributes and character of the person to whom they are given. This is something forgotten in our day, but it is very important. We see this throughout the bible.  More importantly we see this as a way to know and understand the very character of God.

Exodus 2:13 Then Moses said to God, “indeed when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them?”

14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.”  And He said “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, “I AM has sent me to you.”

15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel” The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Issac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.  This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations. (NASB states ..”this is My memorial-name to all generations.”)

Allah can never make these claims. He is not the I AM. He is not the God of Abraham, Issac or Jacob.  Thus his name and the claims behind it could never be a memorial-name to all generations.

Allah may be known in the Qu’ran as the Supreme One, but He is not the I AM. Nor is he truly supreme either, but that’s the ego of satan who got kicked out of heaven for believing he would ascend the throne of the Most High – Isaiah 14:14. See a similarity in the claims here?

A note regarding the scripture referenced above from the NASB states – The phrase “I AM: in Hebrew is closely related to God’s personal name (Ex 6:3 Jehovah or Yahweh or YHWH) which occurs more than 6,000 times in the O.T.  Though the meaning is not completely clear to scholars, it seems to suggest the timelessness of God, the very foundation of all existence.  Perhaps there is a hint to this in Rev. 1:4 “from Him who is, and who was, and who is to come.” Jesus probably alluded to this in John 8:58 “Before Abraham was born, I AM.” Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever (Heb. 13:8).

From Isaiah:

7:14″Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”  (The literal meaning God with us)  See also Matthew 1:23

9:6 And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…”,

God is known by many other names that tell us who He is – El Elyon, the Most High; El Shaddai, Almighty God or God, all powerful and all sufficient; Jehovah Jireh, the Lord who sees, or the Lord will see to it; Jehovah Rophi, the Lord who heals; Jehovah Makkeh, the Lord who smites, Jehovah Tsebaioth, the Lord of Hosts.  (Information taken from Knowing God by Name, David Wilkerson).

Jesus, highly exalted, the name above all names – Philippians 2:9; Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved – Acts 4:10-12.

As you can see and probably already are aware, God has many, many names. None of them being Allah. The names of God tell us who He is.  In the same manner we can see who Allah is by the Qu’ran in which he commissions his people to kill all non-believers. He has no love for Jews or Christians whatsoever. We can see it in the news as nearly everyday someone is murdered at the hands of the followers of Allah who claim him to be great.

God does not command that His people kill unbelievers, but that we love them and show them the way to salvation through Jesus Christ. God is one of love and compassion. Allah is one of hatred, death and utter destruction. There can be no confusing the two. “God” is not the English equivalent of Allah.

I am sure whoever wrote this booklet did so with good intentions. Maybe the author was taking information from another source and hadn’t bothered to check it for himself. I certainly know what it is like to take someone who is trusted at their word. But, this author is completely mistaken. The claim that we may safely call Jehovah Allah is a pretty scary idea that should make any Christian shudder in unbelief! Someone needs to warn Arab Christians calling Jehovah God “Allah” is nothing short of blasphemy. He is not the great I AM. He is not the God of their salvation.
