Currently, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, and it has some friends in high places. After all, President Barack Obama has said “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” Obama also maintains that “Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” Of course, defending Islam from the actions of Muslims has become a full-time job for the religion’s friends in the United States.
For example, when Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) beheaded 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, the White House stated “The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists.” There was no mention of Islam, and no mention of the fact the Egyptian citizens were murdered for their faith in Jesus. This isn’t a surprise, because Obama has said ISIS “is not ‘Islamic’” and he’s also asked us to “remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” In other words, the President of the United States defends Islam and lectures Christians.
A short while ago, in an interview, CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Franklin Graham said some Obama administration officials “are anti-Christ in what they say and in what they do.” With the Obama administration’s friendly stance toward Islam, he couldn’t have said it any better. Indeed, the Bible says “Who is a liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? Whoever denies the Father and the Son is the antichrist. No one who denies the Son has the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father” (1 John 2:22-23). Well, the Koran explains “the Christians call Christ the son of Allah…Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth” (Koran 9:30). The Koran adds “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity” (Koran 5:73). So, according to the Bible, Islam is anti-Christ.
Now, since Muslims are commanded to “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day” until they “feel themselves subdued” (Koran 9:29), the goal of Islam is to make everyone submit to Allah. Muslims are commanded to behead unbelievers (Koran 8:12), and they’ve been obeying by beheading Christians. To be sure, a time will come when Christians being beheaded will be normal. There’s nothing to fear, however, because “the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness of Jesus and for the word of God…came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4). The victory is ours.
