Islam

Today I was asked a question which I have been asked a good number of times. So, I thought I would give a simple answer here. A young man wrote and asked: “Can you please tell me whether the descendants of Ismael are Muslims?”

Because I have been asked this question a good number of times I thought I would answer it simply here.

downloadNo. The descendants of Ishmael are the Arabs but not all Arabs are Muslims. In the Middle East from 200-650 AD, most Arabs were Christians, not Muslims. Islam did not get started until the mid-7th century. Mohammad conquered Mecca in 629 and subsequently, the Muslims swept through Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa with their armies and conquered these once Christian lands.

So Arabs are descendants of Ismael (Gen 25:12-18). Mohammed was an Arab. He started a new religion called Islam but not all Arabs followed him. Not all Arabs are Muslims. The largest Muslim nation is Indonesia and they are not Arabs. In fact, the three largest Muslim countries are not Arab.

And the Middle East at one time was almost 100% Christian and most of them were Arabs. In fact, in the Holy Land today the Christian population is almost entirely Arab Palestinian.

According to Wikipedia, “Around 62% of the world’s Muslims live in the Asia-Pacific region (from Turkey to Indonesia), with over 1 billion adherents. The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia, a nation home to 12.7% of the world’s Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), and India (10.9%).

Arab is ethnic, Muslim is a religion. Ishmael is not the father of the Muslims, only of the Arabs.

This is one of many videos being spread across the Muslim communities in America. They are pushing for a huge Muslim registration drive for Voting for Biden in November.

We careful America! If we don’t also get people out to vote we may lose for our grandchildren what we knew as children.

They have an agenda and it’s not the American dream! Their dream is to bring America under Allah!

This is the truth that has been ignored by the mainstream media and it’s a shame. The conversion of the magnificent Hagia Sophia church into a mosque is a disgrace and then international tragedy on many levels. I agree with this video completely.

And interestingly enough, this video is made by a Jewish commentator from Israel, not a Christian.

His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave […]

Will Islam Accept America?

October 6, 2019

Today (1950), the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming hatred against Christianity itself.
