Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen prophetically spoke about not only the dangers of Islam but also the means of their conversion to the true faith by way of Our Lady – specifically, Our Lady of Fatima. And what I love most about reading/listening Archbishop Sheen’s lectures on matters of the faith – he never forgets to mention the hope of conversion. This is largely what many of us forget about our faith. As a Catholic, we not only stand up for the truth and expose wickedness but pray for souls to repent so they may conform their will with that of God’s holy will. Even so, we not only pray for the souls of men, woman, and children in this false faith but also that they may be made aware of its truly wicked design. Especially given the notion in the Post-Concilar Church which maintains a false sentimentality of mercy. It is this disorientation of mercy that gives in to forces like Isis (traditional Mohammedanism) bent on destroying Holy Mother Church. Let us take time to consider a few things about Islam.
Islam is an Antichrist Religion
Make no mistake, Islam at its very core is antichrist. We can know this by simply researching their own ‘holy’ literature (Quran, Hadiths, etc.) We know that Islam teaches that a man named Mohammad was given by the Archangel Gabriel the words of God or as a Muslim would call Him, ‘Allah’. Because of this revelation, the religion of Islam took form and Mohammad then went about preaching this new doctrine to his pagan countrymen. He taught monotheism and that all the 360 pagan Gods of the Kaaba were false. Oddly enough, one of the pagan gods who was to be the greatest of them all was named Al’ilah (‘al’ meaning ‘the’ & ‘ilah’ meaning ‘God’) a moon god. Moreover, the name of Mohammad’s father, Abd-Allah (which means ‘Slave of Allah’) also raised eyebrows concerning Allah’s mysterious origin. Since Abd-Allah had not heard of his son’s revelations, he, like most of the Meccans, worshiped Al’ilah as the chief god among the 360 in the Sacred House of Kaaba –
From the Quran 5:97:
“God has made the Kaba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security, Hajj, and ‘Umrah (pilgrimage) for mankind…”
However, one does not need to even tread in far into the origins of the moon god to fully realize its antichrist design. Fundamentally, Islam denies the dogma that Jesus is the Son of God. Instead it teaches he was a great prophet (second to Mohammad, of course). Located in Jerusalem, inside the Dome of the Rock, there reads on the inner octagonal arcade:
“…God is only One God. Far be it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son.” Moreover, Chapter 5 verse 17 (sūrat l-māidah) reads, “They are unbelievers who say, ‘God is the Messiah, Mary’s son.’”
Furthermore, Archbishop Sheen touched on the truth of Mohammad historically misunderstanding the Dogma of the Blessed Trinity, believing Christians to worship God the Father, the Mother (Mary), and the Son (Jesus).
But St. John tells us:
“Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also.” 1 John 2:22-23
It would be bad enough for a man to claim Jesus is not God…but a whole religion that some claim to be the same God of Christians? This is irreconcilable on a level even a child could understand. Yet countless ‘professed’ Catholics swallow this garbage of Allah and YAWEH as one in the same. Besides this obvious denial of God’s revelation to mankind, religion does not even comprehend other faiths in order to properly judge their validity.
Even the Concise Dictionary of Islam admits:
In some cases the “material” which forms the substance of Quranic narrative, details of the creeds of Christianity and Judaism for example, does not correspond to those religion’s own understanding of their beliefs. This could be said, for example, of the notion of the Trinity found in the Quran, the story of Satan’s refusal to bow down to Adam, the Docetist view of the crucifixion, all of which can be traced to the dogmas of Gnostic sects, which are heretical in relationship to orthodox Christianity and Judaism. The Trinity “seen” in the Quran is not the Trinity of the Apostles Creed, or of the Nicene Creed. (Morey, The Islamic Invasion: Confronting the World’s Fastest Growing Religion [Harvest House Publishers, Eugene, Oregon 1992], pp. 152-153)
Understanding this, we are told to believe that Mohammad was given the truth concerning the faith by none other than the Archangel Gabriel, who stands in the Presence of God…and apparently…gives misinformation and false revelation to ‘prophets’. This is also the mark of Satan’s work…LIES.
In fact, according to their own teachings, there is a sacred way of LYING while maintaining their faith. In other words, according to the tenets of their faith, out right lies can be used in a holy way that does not have spiritual consequences and relieves the Muslim from the fear of condemnation for lying. This method of doing thus is called “taqiyya” and by definition it means:
“taqiya (تقیة taqiyyah/taqīyah) is a form of religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts, especially while they are in fear or at risk of significant persecution.“
And from the Quran 16: 106:
Whoso disbelieveth in Allah after his belief – save him who is forced thereto and whose heart is still content with the Faith – but whoso findeth ease in disbelief: On them is wrath from Allah. Theirs will be an awful doom.
Another way to put it, is if things are getting tough – lie your way out of it. For Muslims, Allah understands you throwing away your integrity, courage, and faith when it suits you and your comfort or protection – as long as you “keep the faith in your heart”.
(Wow…I wonder why Jesus didn’t reveal this tid bit to us? I mean, it seems really practical in tight positions…maybe if the Saints used this they wouldn’t be martyred…I mean, this method was already used pretty heavily during the Synod of the Family, esp. when Cardinal Walter Kasper was asked if he meant to ignore church teaching on the divorced and remarried returning to Holy Communion (Click here to watch an interview of Kasper using his own form of taqiyya to save himself from appearing a heretic!)
But lest we forget, there are many in the Church who remind us of Islam’s relationship with Judaism and Christianity as the three religions share a common spiritual father, Abraham. We know from Holy Scripture, that Abraham had two sons, one from the Egyptian slave girl named Hagar, named Ishmael (whom is the decedent of the Arabs) and Issac…the child of the Promise God gave to Abraham and his wife Sarah. The ignorant will say: “They share the same God, as the Muslim people are descendants of Ishmael, son of Abraham, whom God blessed as a great nation.” They will also note that Scripture says in Genesis 17:20:
‘And as for Ismael I have also heard thee. Behold, I will bless him, and increase, and multiply him exceedingly: he shall beget twelve chiefs, and I will make him a great nation.’
However, the VERY next verse God clearly says in Genesis 17:21:
But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sara shall bring forth to thee at this time in the next year.
Let us also consider, that if a religion (other than Catholicism) dares to claim the inheritance of Abraham, as Muslims do…they must also consider the ‘dialogue’ between John the Baptist and the Jews in Luke 3:7:
He said therefore to the multitudes that went forth to be baptized by him: Ye offspring of vipers, who hath shewed you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of penance; and do not begin to say, We have Abraham for our father. For I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.
And furthermore, if one is to claim the inheritance of Abraham, they must recognize the ‘dialogue’ between our Lord Jesus and the Jews in John 8: 38-42:
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not.
You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me…”
In other words, if God really sent the same Archangel Gabriel that hailed the Blessed Mother, to Mohammad, then Mohammad would have to hail Jesus as the Son of God or be absolutely false! God does not send two completely contradictory messages for the salvation of men. This would be the work of the devil as Satan is the author of confusion and not the truth.
False Mercy and The Empty Argument of Islam as a Peaceful Religion
As proved previously, there is no hope of true communion between Islam and Catholicism as one claims that there is one God and Mohammad is his prophet and the other professes that God so loved the world that He sent His only Son that the world may be saved. We have since seen the radical redefinition of ‘ecumenical’ teachings of the Church that slyly shrink from doctrinal adherence, although placating support for immutable, infallible laws of the Church. One part of this ecumenical train wreck would be the use of ‘dialogue’. As if there would be some hope of coming to an agreement through hanging out and shooting the breeze with literally one side morally, dogmatically, and logically miles a part from one another. This disorientation of mercy is not only spiritually compromising to Catholic teaching but also deadly when considering Islam as neighbor to trust.
The empty argument of Islam as a religion of peace starts off with not only recognizing violent Islamic terrorism but also spreading long and thin the idea that there are others practicing Islam in peace. The latter part of this argument is true, however, Islam does not largely reign by aggressive tactics but by its system of laws known as Sharia Law. This is the system of laws that every Muslim seeks to be governed by and the more Muslims reside in an area, the more they will desire to be governed by their own laws. Thanks to our country’s religious liberty mind set, (something the Catholic Church traditionally never promoted as a civil right for man to willing choose to worship anything or anyone other than Jesus Christ) we willingly open our arms (and soon our borders) to foreign Islamic power. And with the recent news of Syrian “refugees” entering south Louisiana, and the Islamic terrorism currently decimating Paris, France, there is much to be concerned with.
But again, what of those peaceful Muslims that already reside in the United States? Let us say, in the worst case scenario, that our country becomes overrun with Isis forces and begins to subject non-Muslims to iniquitous laws, do you think the peaceful neighborhood Muslim will stand up for you? Not likely. He will most likely… and peacefully, I might add…accept the Islamic revolution which will no doubt enslave if not kill you and your family.
