What Is the Truth about Islam?

I would point you to two books, which I think will be helpful in understanding where Islam is today and where they came from.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades
The Truth about Muhammad

Both of these books are by Robert Spencer and may be acquired at or at a local bookstore.

The Islamic faith is made up of many fanatics and extremists who wish to convert or enslave all infidels (people who do not believe Muhammad is a prophet or worship Allah). The Allah of Islam is not the Jehovah of the Bible. Muslims worship one God with one person, whereas Christians worship the one and only God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

While Muslims believe Jesus is a prophet, they deny that he is the Son of God, that he died for our sins, and that he arose from the dead. They believe the Bible is corrupt. They do not believe the gospel (Mk. 16:15-16).

Their desire is to establish a Caliphate over the whole world. Those who do not convert will be enslaved in dhimmitude or killed. They want the pot of gold, which is America.

This is their desire.

I haven't read the book, but I read the reviews, so I have a bit of an idea of what it will say.

However, I am confused.
Who are we to fear? God or Islam?
Where does God figure in this? Muslims have been around for 1300 years and haven't taken the world yet. Do you think God was in control of that?
Do you think we should love Muslims or hate them?
Which is more important--the nation of the United States or the Kingdom of God?

I appreciate your reply.

We must fear only God (Mt. 10:28) in whom lies all earthly and national power (Jer. 18:7-10).

Our government is a minister of God to punish evildoers, and we have an obligation to understand who is an enemy of our government and to support it as God's servant (Rom. 13:1-7).

We are Christians first, last and always. It is always our first commitment. Our primary commitment is to the God of the Bible and His Son Jesus Christ.

We have no desire to hate anyone, but we do not wish to see those who have proclaimed themselves as anti-Christian succeed in destroying the freedoms our government (a minister of God) allows us to enjoy.
