Nicer Polemics Against Islam

Spirit of Antichrist results

John R. Houk

© March 15, 2016


I am not one who has a lot of compassion for one devoted to being a believer in the theopolitical death cult known as Islam. Not just because of all the death and mayhem executed by adherents who attribute such actions to being a true follower of Islam and its prophet Muhammad. But also as a Christian I am very displeased the Quran, Hadith and Sira that specifies that Jesus Christ is only a man and not the Son of God who gave his life in death on the cross as the redemption price Adam and Eve’s treason in the Garden. That simple denial makes Muhammad an Antichrist preach and Mo’s followers as infected with an Antichrist spirit.


This centrality of Islam has led to some tough polemical anti-Islam thoughts placed in my blogs. For this Muslim Apologists, Leftist Multiculturalists and even some duped Conservatives label me an Islamophobic hate-monger, especially since a “majority” of Muslims claim to be “Moderate” in their Islamic faith and are not violent toward non-Muslims.


My problem with the “Moderate” moniker is such a Muslim still believes the Quran are the very words of Allah spoken through Muhammad and that there is no better example for humanity than the example and life of Muhammad. Sorry my critics, that thinking is still in line with an Antichrist mentality. I have no compunction favoring a religion or ideology that one of its central tenets is to call the Redeemer of humanity a mere man and teach the suppression of those that believe that Christ is the Son of God. Frankly I have changed my mind on the polemics.


However, as a Christian I need to learn how to share the Great Commission given by Christ to all Believing Christians.


The Great Commission


16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.


18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b] (Matthew 28: 16-20 NKJV)


The Great Commission


14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[a] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16: 14-18 NKJV)


And so I can’t see me changing the polemics when I read something a Muslim did that was scandalously heinous in relation to any normal society no matter the prevailing cultural faith or lack thereof. AND YET my Lord and Savior’s example of confrontation in a 1 Corinthian 13 manner is a level I will continuously work toward achieving. That means toning down adversarial trap anger gives into too often.


The Greatest Gift


13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.


Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Love never fails. … (1 Corinthians 13: 1-8 NKJV)


In an email from the Colson Center by Eric Mataxas telling about a book by Dr. Nabeel Qureshi entitled “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward”. Dr. Qureshi is a former Muslim who found Christ and now is very involved with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) which is devoted to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to non-Christians and Dr. Qureshi has a particular to share in a compassionate manner to Muslims.


Mr. Mataxas begins this email with a story that is one of those true stories of the brutality of Islam aimed specifically at Christians who were in a ministry situation in a Muslim majority populace within the grasp of Islamic terrorists. Then the email goes on to introduce an interview under the aegis of BreakPoint This Week which is an audio between Dr. Qureshi and John Stonestreet. The link to has the audio then the story in the story of the email. When I get to the link I’m only posting up to the audio link. If you want to read what Christians face in Muslim dominated nations, feel free to read the story either after listening to the audio or maybe even while listening.


Then after the audio I want to cross post a mini-seminar conducted by Dr. Nabeel Qureshi under RZIM followed closely by the video description. Now here’s the thing, the video stretch through 1 hour and 56 minutes of run time. Annoying there is about eight minutes of no sound and a picture of the seminar. Then at about the nine-minute mark the seminar begins with an intro. At about the fourteen-minute mark Dr. Qureshi speaks. At about the 56-minute mark Dr. Qureshi ends in prayer. And finally at around the 58-minute mark a lengthy Q & A session begins that is in relation to the speech.

Is there any answer to violent jihad? Yes. It’s the same as God’s answer to sin.


Let me tell you a story that, tragically, has no happy ending. Vincent Minj, who is almost 80, was the oldest of six children growing up in rural India, and he remembers the day decades ago when his sister, Cecilia, fell into a well near their home and almost died.


Somehow however, Cecilia lived, and Vincent took her survival as a sign from God. He told The Indian Express newspaper, “I thought that if God had given her another life, it had to be used in His service . . . So I just took her along with me and got her admitted to the Missionaries of Charity.”


That order of nuns, of course, was founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta to care for the poorest of India’s poor who would otherwise die alone and unloved. Vincent, who was a preacher himself, told his father that Cecilia was going to get an education in the city of Ranchi. What she got instead was a lifetime of serving the poor in India, then the United States, Iraq, Italy, Jordan, and, finally, Yemen. She was proving the corollary of a famous observation by Mother Teresa: “A life not lived for others is not a life.”


On Friday, March 4th, Sister Anselm, as she’d come to be known, was working as a nurse in the lawless southern port city of Aden. More than 6,000 people have died and 2.5 million have been displaced in the mostly Arab Muslim country’s ongoing civil war.


Sister Anselm was serving breakfast for the residents of the retirement home when some men came to the front gate, saying they wanted to visit their mothers. This home, founded by Mother Teresa in 1992, was reportedly the last Christian facility in the country of more than 26 million people, and it ministered to developmentally disabled children, as well as to old and dying people.


Of course, the men at the gate were lying, and once they gained access, they handcuffed the residents and the nuns and shot them in the head. Sixteen people, including Sister Anselm and three other nuns, died. While groups linked to the Islamic State and al-Qaeda are roaming the city as if it were a dystopic, real-world version of “Mad Max,” no one has taken responsibility for the massacre, which the Vatican calls an “act of senseless and diabolical violence.”


Vincent now has only a worn photo of Sister Anselm to remember her by.


The story goes that a British newspaperman asked the redoubtable G.K. Chesterton what was wrong with the world. Rather than waxing eloquent on poverty, greed, or unjust social structures, the great author got right to the point: “I am,” he said.


And indeed, we all are, following our first parents into rebellion, degradation, and exile from the Garden. That’s why the good news of Christ’s death and resurrection for sinners is good, because we are so bad. And while there are many expressions of our unholy war against God in the 21st century, certainly the one grabbing the most headlines seems to be the radicals who apparently enjoy murdering and terrorizing people such as Sister Anselm in the name of Islam.


That’s why I hope you’ll listen to the latest installment of “BreakPoint This Week,” hosted by my friend and colleague John Stonestreet, who interviews Nabeel Qureshi about his great new book, “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward.”


Nabeel, who used to be a Muslim, is today a follower of Christ, and his book clearly and convincingly answers every question you’re likely to have about the religion founded by Muhammad.


Even better, it will help us sinners think through a truly Christian response to the unholy war we see in the news, as well as the Muslim neighbor who may live down the street. Don’t miss this “BreakPoint This Week”—it’s terrific! You can find it at, along with Nabeel’s book “Answering Jihad.”

Join us for an insightful event with New York Times bestselling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi as he gives personal, challenging, and respectful answers to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.

After Nabeel’s presentation there will be a live question and answer session.

San Bernardino was the most lethal terror attack on American soil since 9/11, and it came on the heels of a coordinated assault on Paris. There is no question that innocents were slaughtered in the name of Allah and in the way of Jihad, but do the terrorists’ actions actually reflect the religion of Islam? The answer to this question is more pressing than ever, as waves of Muslim refugees arrive in the West seeking shelter from the violent ideology of ISIS.

Setting aside speculations and competing voices, what really is Jihad? How are we to understand Jihad in relation to our Muslim neighbors and friends? Why is there such a surge of Islamist terrorism in the world today, and how are we to respond?

The Muslim Solution

Islamic Trilogy devoted to Jihad

John R. Houk

© May 13, 2015


Someone is going to Hell: us or them? I say them! I say that because Islam is permanent war and I want peace. Peace cannot coexist with Islam.


Nobody has the political will to off 1.3 BILLION Muslims. Neither do they have the will to wage the ideological war. It’s gonna be a tough sell.” – Dajjal


The above Dajjal quote is how I derived the title for two combined comments made in light of the ISIS beheading of 15 Ethiopian Christians located in Libya: “Islamist genocide in Libya proof Christians must arm themselves: Gun law expert”.


It has taken me awhile to cross post Dajjal’s largely due to the eye for eye concept or worse excising all adherents to Islam that are committed to the belief in the immutability of the Quran and the measured reverence for the Hadith and Sira. Those writings considered holy by even the most nominal of Muslims explicitly call for violence against non-Muslims who at the very refuse to submit to the superiority of Islam. Add this to the fact that Islam teaches that Mohammed is the perfect man to imitate to be a righteous person. The problem imitating Mo is that he seemed to transform from a wise religious philosopher in his early days in Mecca into a lusting blood thirsty maniac after expulsion to Medina, willing to terminate anyone who refused his prophethood or mock his integrity as a holy man.


Purist Muslims (aka Radical Muslim terrorists) today committing atrocities today claim justification for their actions by claiming the example of Mo. Check out these five English translation of the so-called immutable Quran 33: 21:


Sahih International: There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.


Pickthall: Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembereth Allah much.


Yusuf Ali: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.


Shakir: Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much.



Muhammad Sarwar: The Messenger of God is certainly a good example for those of you who have hope in God and in the Day of Judgment and who remember God very often.


Keeping in mind the Quran is not written in numerical order by date, but rather by size – roughly longest to shortest. (See Also cache PDF) TAKE NOTE that Quran 33:21 was recorded from Medina.


Dajjal’s point is that as long as Muslims are devoted to Islamic writings and Mohammed, they will continue rise up in violence even if they are utterly defeat in a war. It is encoded in the considered holy writings and the perfect man’s example – Mohammed – to be violent in the HERE and NOW until Islam forces global submission. ERGO the only solution to preventing the constant rise of Muslims doing their duty is the eradication of all the adherents to all of Islam as if that religion of divine origin in a revelation to a chosen man.


Dajjal’s thoughts also occurred among European Christian adherents who grew weary of the constant Muslim violence in medieval days. Hence the Crusades began (See Also HERE) with people capable of the same violence as Muslims. The sad truth about the Crusades is that atrocities were committed contrary to the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Another sad truth is that Muslims from the days of their prophet Mo right on to the present are committing atrocities IN ACCORDANCE to their Allah’s revelation to Mo.


I’ve had my share of just turn Dar al-Islam into a nuked sea of glass from September 11, 2001 right on through these days of ISIS and Boko Haram and lesser Islamic terrorism of notoriety. BUT after periods of cooling off I have to realize that blanket eradication of all Muslim devoted to their belief of the immutability of Islamic theopolitical Islamic doctrine is contrary to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. Here are four Gospel (Good News) examples of it being God’s will that all humanity are Saved in Christ if they only believe in the Risen Savior:


Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b]


Mark 16:15-16 (NKJV)

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.


Luke 24:46-49 (NKJV)

46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise[a] from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. 49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem[b]until you are endued with power from on high.”


John 20:21-23; 30-31 (NKJV)

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”


30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. (New King James Version)


That rules out the Muslim Solution a la Hitler’s Jewish Solution.


So how in the world does Western Civilization eliminate Muslim lunacy without committing genocide? There is an idea that Dajjal also propagates, yet that idea might still be a bit distasteful to Americans who correctly take a stand with America’s Constitutional Bill of Rights. In particular the First Amendment’s proclamation as basic human right to Religious Freedom (See Also HERE), Free Press, a Free Press, Right to Assemble and to petition government with grievances without fear reprisals. Dajjal’s idea is a full scale government assault on the reality of Islam with psychological warfare.


A psychological warfare assault on Islam goes against the grain of Religious Freedom and Free Speech among Americans. HOWEVER, beginning such an assault would be a great secular path that Biblical Christians can support that is not outright genocide.


For sure as soon as a psych-assault begins, Western Civilization will receive the traditional Muslim pushback that will include the cry, “die kafir” (infidel non-Muslim). If America remains sincere about exposing Islam with psych-warfare, the Muslim response will also lead to military action in turn. Such military action should lead to a WWII-style rules of engagement (ROE). Those ROE should lead to the utter defeat of any Muslim military capability followed by psychological warfare in a now occupied land. This means the inclusion of the suppression of the theopolitical nature of Islam even if it means arresting every mullah, imam, mufti and/or any religious title that refuses to denounce the Quran-Medina inspired theopolitical ideology including in the Hadith and Sira.


As a Christian I am no fan of the entirety of Islam. It is my opinion that the Quran is an antichrist promoting religious book. I haven’t read enough the Quran to know if the antichrist surahs are in both the Mecca and Medina portions of the Quran. I am not going to take the time now to make that exploration. As an American I am willing to tolerate a transformed (as opposed to Islamic purist reform) Islam in which the peaceful allah-searching components of the Quran, Hadith and Sira become preeminent. As long as Islam demands a death to the kafir mentality, especially Americans and Jews, I support harsh suppression.


Well, that’s my two-cents. Below are the sentiments of Dajjal – that I must remind you comes shortly after the mass beheading of Christians – which I do have a tough time agreeing with completely, but perhaps partially.

Destroy Islam for Western Culture’s Survival


By Dajjal

Derived from Comment Dates:

April 20, 2015 at 7:15 PM and April 20, 2015 at 9:28 PM


Isdamnic genocide is not soluble by individual armed resistance. Where Allah’s writ runs and Muslimes outnumber Christians; the mob will prevail.


Where Allah’s writ does not run, the laws generally preclude individual ownership and carrying of firearms. Jews and Christians are sitting ducks in Europe; forbidden by law to defend themselves.


While some American States issue concealed carry permits, those incidents are rare here in the USA. Most of the plots have involved suicide bombings, in which cases a pistol would not be useful.


Collective action is required: our government, in alliance with other free nations, must eradicate Islam from the face of the earth.


When the impatient zealots of ISIS swarm Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, Iran gets their own or the Chechens take over Russia’s arsenal, it will be too late and all hope will be lost.


Kinetics alone will not solve the problem. The war of ideas alone will not solve the problem. A combination is required.


Our government must wage psychological warfare by creating a docudrama based on the Sira. The docudrama must be backed up with shorter productions detailing individual incidents. Those must be distributed globally in multiple languages.


By exposing the Ummah to the awful truth about Moe the seeds of doubt will be planted to sprout into apostasy.


The hard line true believers who will not apostatize must be ushered into Hell. Off the Imam or Mullah, then bomb and strafe his funeral procession.


Wholesale slaughter is needed. Wherever ISIS and like groups are gathered, drop ordinance of sufficient magnitude to wipe them out without regard to collateral damage. Be proactive: do it to them before they do you in. We see videos with long armored columns which should have been strafed by A10s. Kill one fly and one hundred will come to his funeral.


Someone is going to Hell: us or them? I say them! I say that because Islam is permanent war and I want peace. Peace cannot coexist with Islam.


Nobody has the political will to off 1.3 BILLION Muslims. Neither do they have the will to wage the ideological war. It’s gonna be a tough sell.


Islam is like a wasp hive: swat one and they all come after you. Offensive jihad is fard al-kifaya. When we retaliate, its fard al-ayn [Blog Editor: I didn’t have clue what the heck these two fards meant. HERE is a simple explanation from OU of all places and HERE is an explanation a purist Islamic website.]; including Muslimas [Blog Editor: Muslim women – typically younger, hip and/or socially outgoing – Urban Dictionary, wiseGEEK and], children and sheikhs.


Muslims cannot be defeated without destroying their iman. While they [i.e. the Muslim dedication to the concept of **Iman] believe in Allah, his imperatives, threat & promise, they will never cease attacking for long.


[** Blog Editor: “Iman” as a concept Iman is generally outlined using the six articles of faith:


1.   Belief in Allah


2.   Belief in the Angels


3.   Belief in Divine Books


4.   Belief in the Prophets


5.   Belief in the Day of Judgment


6.   Belief in Allah’s predestination


Of these, the first five are mentioned together in the Qur’an[9] and by Muhammad, while including a corollary of belief in Allah – the good and evil of fate ordained by God – has referred to all six together in the following manner in the Hadith of Gabriel:


“Iman is that you believe in God and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Hereafter and the good and evil fate [ordained by your God].”[10] (Iman (concept): The Six articles of Islamic faith; Wikipedia; page was last modified on 18 April 2015, at 16:38.)]



They think Allah is God and Moe was Al-Insan al-kamil [Blog Editor: “al-insan al-kamil” is the Islamic doctrine of the perfect man of which Mohammed is the highest example – HERE and HERE] Unless someone shows them that Allah is Satan and Moe was a murdering, lecherous pedophile and false prophet, we cannot win this war.

Save Western Civ. With Total Unconditional Victory

John R. Houk
© February 6, 2015
Allied Destruction of Nazi Germany’s city of Dresden during WWII is an example of winning a war at all costs. Think WWIII and what it takes to end Islamic aggression.
Dajjal has some harsh insights pertaining to Ari Bussel’s essay, “Farewell to Netanyahu”. Dajjal makes it very clear that his solution to the world’s Islam problem is the extermination on all who call on Mohammed’s Allah.
There is an essence of logic to the eradication solution because of Islam’s revered writings that inherently call for eradication of all non-Muslims who do not submit to Islam. No matter what a Muslim tells you, it is the truth what their writings encourage. For Muslims who tell you differently they are lying, self-deceived and/or ignorant of the totality of their own writings.
I on the other hand refuse to call for the eradication solution. The primary reason is that I am a Christian. The Lord Jesus’ exhortation to all Believers is to go into all the world share the Good News that the Deliverance of Jesus Christ is available now to all who Believe on the Risen Savior. No matter how angry I may get at crazy Muslims, I trust the Lord Jesus will return at the darkest hour of Christianity.
That being said I fully concur with Dajjal that the Western World needs to wake up to the ultimate designs of Islam as currently advocated by Muslims who know their writings and choose to follow them to the dotted “i” and the crossed “t”. Please notice that the Muslims who claim to be peaceful Moderates fear to take on those the West calls Radicals.
I for one do not believe that the fear the so-called peaceful Moderate Muslims have is for the retribution of Radicals. Rather I believe – at least unconsciously for many – that their fear is related to the retribution from Allah for not obeying that deity’s commands particularly in the Quran in making the world submit to Allah and Islam. To speak or act against Allah’s commands is blasphemy. AND in case you not paid attention, Muslims have little tolerance for blasphemy against their deity, their prophet and their religion in general. The intolerance is especially visible in the Muslim controlled world, but the intolerance is beginning to be boldly demonstrated in the non-Muslim West. This is especially the case in Europe. (If Obama’s way stays on track – then coming soon to an American community near you.)
Because of this Muslim revered writings loyalty and the inevitable devotion of all Muslims, the West under the leadership of the USA MUST develop a military strategy that has a total and complete and unconditional surrender of Muslim nations to the political authority of the West. By the way, the total victory strategy is how the united front of Allies prosecuted and won WWII. Wholesale German and Japanese population centers were bombed out of existence and their military leadership concluded genocide was the only result of not meeting the Unconditional Surrender demands by the most powerful military Allies of WWII – USA, Britain and the then USSR.
Islamic terrorism will only cease under the total victory strategy.
Below is video footage of the aftermath of the bombing of Dresden. I am fairly certain portions are from Nazi clips showing the German populace the Allies are barbarous YET forgetting to tell the German populace their Nazi government exterminated about 6 MILLION Jews not to mention about another 6 MILLION undesirable people to the Nazi Aryan race superiority agenda. NOW think that compare the Nazi atrocities to the approximate 270 million killed by jihad in the conquest spreading of Islam. These Muslim perpetrated atrocities are continuing to this day! When Christian kings killed for Christ contrary to the Holy Scriptures, those number don’t even come close to Islamic butchery that occurred at the command of the Quran and the example of Mohammed.
This is where the eradication of all Muslim conceptualists will point out that total victory only slows down the intent of Islamic Political Theopolitical Ideology. Devotion to Islamic revered writings simply means the Islamic cancer will rise again to afflict the non-Muslim world.
This is why total victory must lead to total political authority even if political despotism is used harshly in unWestern-like ways. In the case of Islam a little forced reformation is in order to change Mo’s ideology into something closer resembling a Judeo-Christian heritage.
Now that I have added a little clarity to my thoughts on Islam (trust me, I could on), check out Dajjal’s thoughts that Israel needs an even more aggressive Prime Minister than Netanyahu in securing the Jewish State from the Islamic threat.

Dajjal Comment to ‘Farewell to Netanyahu
Israel’s politics are too finely divided with too many parties wrestling for too few seats of power. The Parliamentary system does not lend itself to strong, decisive leadership and stability.
Yes, we do need a foreign leader to wise us up about Iran ‘cuz we have no domestic leader able and willing to meet the need. If we had a leader in ’01, Iran would be a smoking ash heap, not a problem today.
The Iran problem has only one possible solution: extinction. Iran must be erased. The existence of a nation ruled by twelvers is not acceptable.
Unfortunately, Bibi lacks the SISU requisite to deliver that message. He will pull his punches, falling short of the goal. Congress will stand up and cheer, without passing meaningful sanctions legislation, which Obamination would veto.

Israel will be forced to take out Iran’s nuclear industry and needs to remove the leadership circle at the same time.
Bennett has no chance in the current election cycle and there is a chance that Obamination’s meddling will save Bibi’s bacon this time. That chance could be strengthened if Bibi campaigns on the issue.
Israel needs a bold leader with courage and SISU, one who will name the enemy and the enemy threat doctrine. Muslims are the enemy and Islam is the threat doctrine. Any and all who think that peace is possible while Muslims live within rocket range of Israel are damned fools, so stupid that they should be institutionalized, not walking about loose. What part of 7.167, 9.29. 9.123 & Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177 do they not comprehend???
No concession, negotiation, good will gesture or cessation of territory will stop Muslims from their quest for genocide & politicide, they will only whet the Muslims’s appetite for blood.
It’s Islam, Stupid! Bibi, step up to the plate and come out swinging: name the enemy and tell the world why peace is impossible while that enemy exists. In case you are unaware:
13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
[Blog Editor: I wasn’t certain of the English translation used by Dajjal so I looked it up. I suspect Dajjal used the version he believes is the closest to the original Arabic intent. So here are some comparative English translations of Quran 13:41 in case you are as curious as I:
Yusuf Ali: See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? (Where) God commands, there is none to put back His Command: and He is swift in calling to account.
Pickthal: See they not how we aim to the land, reducing it of its outlying parts? (When) Allah doometh there is none that can postpone His doom, and He is swift at reckoning.
Shakir: Do they not see that We are bringing destruction upon the land by curtailing it of its sides? And Allah pronounces a doom — there is no repeller of His decree, and He is swift to take account.
Sher Ali: Do they not see that WE are visiting the land, reducing it from its outlying boarders? And ALLAH judges; there is none to reverse HIS judgment. And HE is Swift at reckoning.
Khalifa: Do they not see that every day on earth, brings them closer to the end, and that GOD decides their life span, irrevocably? He is the most efficient Reckoner.
Palmer: Did they not see that we come to the land and diminish the borders thereof? God judges, and there is none to reverse His judgment, and He is swift at reckoning up!
Sale: Do they not see that we come into [their] land, and straiten the borders thereof, [by the conquests of the true believers]? When God judgeth, there is none to reverse his judgement; and he [will be] swift in taking an account.
Rodwell: See they not that we come into their land and cut short its borders? God pronounceth a doom, and there is none to reverse his doom. And swift is He to take account.
“Progressive Muslims”: Do they not see that We come to the land and reduce it from its ends? And God gives judgment and there is none to override His judgment. And He is quick to reckoning.

What does Allah give the Muslims? How does he give it to them? Is the gift reversible? What did Israel do in ’48? What does that tell us about Allah? How can you expect Muslims to tolerate it???
In 638, Umar completed the Islamic conquest of the Levant. “None to put back his Judgment” means that the conquest is permanent. Israel’s recovery of stolen land in ’48 & ’67 proves Allah to be an impotent idol.
Israel won four out of four wars after Allah promised the Muslims victory. Get a clue. Tell the Muslims to go to Hell. Punch their tickets. Make peace by obtaining victory: Islamic extinction.

Christians be Bold in this 21st Century PC Age

Not Ashamed of JC - Rom 1-16

John R. Houk

© January 27, 2013


As a Christian I am not ashamed to say that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God. In that belief I feel obligated to speak up for my faith when confronted anti-Christ situations. The anti-Christ problem situations are admittedly projecting a ‘holier-than-thou’ image in the confrontation. Yes I realize it is not Christ-like to appear holier than thou. Even so, until I learn to develop that knack of projecting God’s Love while standing with the Savior I’ll err on the side of holier than thou rather than on the side of cowardly sheep afraid of offending someone.


One thing you should understand is that I am not perfect. Too often a lack of perfection is used by critics of Christians to cry hypocrite. And too often the critic is correct about the accusation of ‘hypocrite’. This is how I deal internally if I am a hypocrite or not.


The hypocrite is one who believes and tells another what is right while without contrition continues to personally do the opposite of what is right one’s self. The sense of contrition is the difference between a hypocrite and one who continues to seek the right even if a wrong turn is taken. Some are better than others at reading right and wrong turn signs. Or have learned the discipline not to be enticed to take wrong turns when there are signs that show the right way to go.


Two anti-Christ issues I deal with are to a lesser extent the immorality of the homosexual lifestyle and to a larger extent Islam. These days a critic of homosexuality and Islam is labeled with the epithet of homophobe or Islamophobe. In this post I am exalting Christ over Mohammed and the deity he called Allah.


Muslims – especially devout Muslims – are convinced Jesus is (as in the past tense ‘was’) only a man. Muslims are taught Jesus was one of a long line of prophets and the last prophet was Mohammed. In Islamic thinking Jesus is not the Christ (Messiah) the Son of the Living God who is ONE with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Christians view the Trinity as One God and Muslims view the Trinity as three god polytheistic idolatry.


Muslims have no problem expressing their negative thoughts on the Divinity and Sonship of Christ Jesus. Indeed, the Quran and its companion commentaries that include the Hadith, Sira and Sunna including the Islamic Clerical commentaries that ends up being studied to formulate Sharia Law, have theological reasoning for aggression toward Jews, Christians and polytheists. Initially Islamic holy writings indicate Mohammed desired to woo Jews and Christians into Islam as People of the Book. Polytheists or other non-Muslim religions were simply offered a convert or die option.


Does the Bible speak of aggression against people? Only an idiot would say no. However there are some glaring differences between the agendas of the Bible and the Quran relating to aggression against people.


The Old Testament (Christian perspective) points to the genealogical line that was Promised from Adam’s Fall through to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob then through Judah, Jesse and David then through David’s lineage that lead to Mary who conceives Jesus by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. This Old Testament scarlet thread focuses on the descendants of Abraham through the child of Promise Isaac – NOT Ishmael the son of Abraham and the Egyptian slave Hagar. Isaac’s son Jacob was renamed Israel by God. The descendants of Jacob-Israel became the Hebrew nation of Israel. God commanded the nation Israel to clear out the land of Canaan of its inhabitants because those people had devolved into such heinous sin they were beyond redeeming. Converting the Canaanites to the ONE-God faith of the Hebrews was not part of Israel possessing the Land.


The rising and falling of the nation Israel mirrors the degree of faithfulness of Israeli leaders in guiding the people under the Law of Moses. Eventually Israel split into two Kingdoms. The Northern Kingdom became known as Israel and roughly represented ten of the twelve tribes of Israel. The Southern Kingdom became known as Judah and represented the two tribes Judah and smaller Benjamin. The Southern Kingdom maintained the line of King David which is part of that scarlet thread of the human side of Jesus through Mary.


Israel and Judah both had their Kingdoms emptied of the Hebrews. The Assyrian Empire removed the predominant elites of the Northern Kingdom. The Babylonian Empire removed the inhabitants of Judah save a few unlearned tied to the land. History essentially begins calling the Hebrew remnant as Jews after the last Hebrew Kingdom of Judah. The Persians (Ironically the present day Iranians) allowed the Jews to begin to return to their Homeland area shortly Babylon was conquered.


 I tried to abbreviate the Old Testament history of the Jews and I probably did a poor job; nonetheless the gist of my timeline is correct. At no time are the Jews commanded by God to force the world population into Judaism or die. The only people commanded to be exterminated were morally reprobate people on the level of Sodom and Gomorrah.


Mohammed’s sole dictum to his followers was to spread the creed of Islam by conquering the world by blood, lust and humiliation. The humiliation part was the plan to intimidate non-Muslims into eventually converting to Islam. The Islamic agenda was not a divine mission. Rather the Islamic agenda was a political-martial conquest that cemented the subjugation of the conquered by inculcating a new socio-theological paradigm into their conquered societies via demoralizing humiliation.


The Christian sole dictum is to go into all the world and share the Good News that Salvation is of the Jews and believing Jesus died on the Cross, was buried and on the third day was Resurrected from the grave by the power of the Father. Christ the Son of God in His glorified body fully human and fully Divine sits at the Right Hand of the Father ever interceding for the saints (Believing Christians).


Islam conquest of the world is coercive. Don’t believe junk that there is compulsion of religion in Islam. It is a deceptive statement. Sure the People of the Book can return their religion BUT ONLY if no open contradiction to Islam exists. Believe there is compulsion if Muslim indoctrinated people believe a religious minority is openly practicing their faith in a Muslim majority nation today.


Biblically Christian conquest in this world, until the Last Days, is purely a voluntary act of faith. The consequences for rejecting Christ are faced in the next life. Yes there have been Christian nations and empires that have imposed Christianity; however the imposition is contrary to the Word of God in the Bible. The Quranic aggression against non-Muslims is codified in the Quran, Hadith and Sira both in this life and the next life in Islamic theology.


I have to admit my ire over how Western political correctness was raised by an Andrew Bostom article with the theme that even when criticism is correctly directed toward a Muslim Cleric or Muslim terrorist that is a proponent of instituting the purist Islam of Mohammed, the critics tend to fail to note that Islam’s holiest book the Quran actually calls for the degradation of the non-Muslim.  In Bostom’s critic he notes that the Obama Administration is selling some weaponry of significant power to the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt’s President Muhammad Morsi. That weaponry is some of America’s finest Fighter Jets.


In the past Egypt had developed into a pretty decent ally of U.S. under the now deposed Hosni Mubarak. Now Egypt is more like a fake ally putting the face of friendship while killing Coptic Christians and spewing the typical Quranic drivel that Jews and Israel should be exterminated. It is the ‘kill the Jews’ mentality that has gotten Bostom’s attention.


Evidently Sean Hannity has been criticizing the Obama Administration about selling weaponry to Jew-hating and American-hating Morsi. Bostom is ok with that portion of Hannity’s criticism. Bostom is befuddled on how Hannity and other good Conservative pundits like him are not pointing out that Morsi is merely repeating EXACTLY what the Quran, Hadith and Sira are saying about the way to treat Jews and Christians.


Here I am emphasizing that Christians should have no fear from Muslim Apologists that take glee in belittling Christianity and the Savior Jesus Christ. No one not even the President of the United States of America will denounce prominent Muslims for spewing anti-Christian hatred. AND YET the President and his Leftist minions will go out their way to denounce Biblically minded Christians as bigoted Islamophobes for pointing out the racism and über intolerance of Muslims and Islamic theo-political ideology.

ORU Gets Back on the Pilgrim’s Path with EMPOWERED21

Oral Roberts has gone on to live with Jesus. Richard Roberts has been humble by getting the boot from being President of Oral Roberts University and even recently getting slapped with a DUI. On May 2nd Richard Roberts received probation. The point is ORU has seen better days.


Richard Roberts 1-24-12 mug shot DUI


I am a bit excited that ORU leadership (I don’t know who that is yet) has take ORU down a path that eschews politics and bad press and is closer to the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to go into all the world and preach the Gospel of Christ’s Redemptive work of which includes the Baptism in the Holy Spirit enabling a Helper to aid Believers to keep on the pilgrim’s path of a Christ-like life.


That ORU path has led to the involvement in an outreach that has been called EMPOWERED21. Below is the overview of how EMPOWERED21 came to be and a picture of intended goals:


From Azusa Street to Tulsa to the World


April 25-29, 2006 the International Center for Spiritual Renewal facilitated and hosted the Azusa Street Centennial. This one hundred year anniversary celebration of the Azusa Street revival was attended by over 50,000 people from 106 different nations. The streams of Spirit-filled Christianity converged in Los Angeles to rejoice in a century of blessing on this movement that now numbers over 600 million people around the world.


In 2008, the new Oral Roberts University Board of Trustees began work on clarifying the mission of the university for 21st century ministry. An initiative was launched by the Board of Trustees called Empowered21 and the International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to facilitate this process to focus on new generations and the power of the Holy Spirit. Immediately, it was discerned that the convergence of these dynamics were leading toward questions and answers that would serve the entire Spirit-filled movement. Empowered21 began to be understood as a natural kingdom-wide follow up to the Azusa Street Centennial. The Azusa Centennial reflected on what God had done for the last 100 years and Empowered21 would focus on the future of the movement.


During 2009 and early 2010, Empowered21 held 17 unique conversation events around the world with leaders, scholars and new generation voices to ascertain their insights into the issues facing the movement in the 21st Century. Over 500 people from 54 nations and over 15 different universities were involved in the conversations. Questions like: “What does it mean to be Spirit-empowered in the 21st century?” and “What steps can be taken to engage new generations in the Spirit-filled experience?” were asked.


Conversation input and discoveries were used to inform the program of the Empowered21 Global Congress on Holy Spirit Empowerment which was held in Tulsa, OK April 8- 11, 2010. The Congress focused on shaping the future of the Global Spirit-empowered movement by focusing on crucial issues facing the movement and connecting generations for intergenerational blessing and impartation. Over 10,000 people from 95 nations attended the April Congress where over 210 learning conversations and numerous general session events informed and connected them. It became obvious that the Congress was forming a launch base for further exploration.


What has followed is truly remarkable. The International Center for Spiritual Renewal was asked to lead Empowered21 into the future and Empowered21 was officially transferred to the Center in the summer of 2010. Empowered21 is now witnessing a convergence and collaboration of Spirit-empowered ministries around the world. A series of regional Empowered21 gatherings are forming to focus on unique issues faced by Spirit-empowered churches operating within disparate socio-economic climates. In January of 2011, the Empowered21 Global Council, co-chaired by Billy Wilson and Jack Hayford, braught (sic) together top global leaders to begin providing inspirational oversight to all 11 regional initiatives.


Regional cabinets will be pursuing initiatives and events in their area of the world to address the future of Spirit-empowered Christianity and find ways to connect the generations for spiritual impartation. Each regional cabinet will operate under the same vision and purposes for Empowered21 in their region.


In many cases, Empowered21 meetings mark the first time leaders of the Spirit-filled movement in a given region have ever met one another. New, ground-breaking networks are forming in Canada, Africa, Asia and beyond. Additionally, a Youth Ministries Network (NGYN21) is the first-ever international network for Spirit- filled youth leaders.


During this Memorial Weekend Sunday will be Pentecost Sunday 2012. EMPOWERED21 is getting on board with a program called the Pentecost Sunday Initiative. Below is the email I received.

Churches and Ministries Around the Globe Will Celebrate Pentecost Weekend Empowered21 Pentecost Initiative Proclaims the Transforming, Renewing, And Empowering Truth of the Holy Spirit


One Day and One Message Through an International Movement


Cleveland, Tenn. – Empowered21, a broad coalition of churches, ministries and organizations working together to help shape the future of the Spirit empowered movement around the world, has launched the Pentecost Sunday Initiative. The global initiative ( is scheduled for this weekend including Pentecost Sunday, May 27, 2012, in which pulpits all over the world will proclaim the transforming, renewing, empowering truth of the Holy Spirit. Entire Spirit-empowered denominations are calling their constituency to participate and churches from Africa to Australia, India to Indiana and Beirut to Bogota are preparing to celebrate.


Among Christians, Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon 120 followers of Jesus including the apostles as described in Acts Chapter 2. Pentecost was “the Birth of the Church” and was the beginning of the great Christian harvest with 3,000 people receiving Christ as their Savior on that day.


Billy Wilson, Executive Director for the International Center for Spiritual Renewal and Empowered21 and Co- Chair of the Empowered21 Global Council (, said, “The Pentecost Sunday Initiative is a simple idea birthed from our Empowered21 conversations where new generations have requested to learn more about the Holy Spirit and God’s immediate presence in their lives. We have always celebrated Christmas and Easter in a big way in the Spirit-empowered church and we believe that it is appropriate to celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church at Pentecost in a big way as well. We anticipate that thousands of believers will experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit around the world on this exciting day. 2012 is just the beginning as we proclaim Pentecost afresh in the 21st century.”


A special daily blog tour from leaders in the Spirit-empowered movement and resources are being provided at and with the goal of assisting pastors all over the world in preaching about the Holy Spirit and His work among God’s people on a single day of unity and power.  Thousands of churches and ministries on the six inhabited continents are expected to participate. No church is too small or too large to be a part of this unified proclamation of the Holy Spirit’s ministry.


Robert Morris, Senior Pastor of Gateway Church in Dallas/Fort Worth and a member of the Empowered21 Global Council said, “When I first heard the concept and idea of asking every pastor in the world to preach on the power of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday, I felt this was God inspired. What could happen if we unite in preaching and teaching what the Bible says about the power, the person and the presence of the Holy Spirit? When the early church received this power they turned their world upside down. I want to encourage pastors around the world to commit to preaching and teaching on the Holy Spirit this Pentecost Sunday that we may also experience the power needed to turn our world upside down for the Lord Jesus Christ.”


Gateway Church has provided downloadable resources from Morris’ bestseller book, The God I Never Knew: How Real Friendship with the Holy Spirit can Change Your Life at Pastors and congregations can sign up on the site to solidify their unity with thousands of others around the world and access the free resources.


The May issue of Charisma gives focus to Pentecost Sunday. Steve Strang, founder of Charisma Magazine and a member of the Empowered21 Global Council, writes, “If you’re a pastor, preach on the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday and invite people to receive the mighty infilling of the Holy Spirit. In a way, every Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, just as every Sunday is Resurrection Day. But since it’s on the calendar and since other churches recognize the day, let’s use it as a time to call attention to the fact that believing in the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives is something that isn’t just a theory in our churches but a reality.”


Empowered21 ( is committed to seeing new generations experience the power and presence of the living God by preaching and teaching about the Holy Spirit. Through this one day, one message—an international movement encourages discovering anew God’s presence and power on Pentecost Sunday.


The Global Vision of Empowered21 is: “That every person on Earth would have an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ through the Power and Presence of the Holy Spirit… by Pentecost 2033.”


Empowered21 presently has 11 global leadership teams that have formed to pursue initiatives and events in their region of the world– helping shape the future of the Global Spirit-empowered movement by focusing on crucial issues facing the movement and connecting generations for intergenerational blessing and impartation.


Each regional cabinet–Africa, Francophone Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, United States, USA Hispanic, Oceania, and the Caribbean–operate under the same global vision, mission and purposes in their region and pursue them in unique ways.


All of the regions are participating in the Pentecost Sunday initiative. The next Empowered21 Global Congress is scheduled to be held on the week before Pentecost Sunday 2015 in Jerusalem, Israel.
