Allen West “In the end, progressive socialism, secular humanism, and Islamic totalitarianism will be tossed upon the ash heap”

Islam

Written by Allen West on October 19, 2013

I recently visited the Five Star Veterans Center in Jacksonville, Florida on behalf of the Allen West Foundation where we had a nice gathering of Americans and the theme of “The American Dream.”

As I drove home after the event heading to South Florida, ‘round about Cocoa Beach I gazed over in amazement at a disturbing electronic billboard sign. I thought perhaps my eyes were just tired. However, as we got further down the road near Vero Beach, I saw the sign again: “Find Jesus in the Quran” with some quranic verse number and the website, whyislam.org.

Hours before, I had spoken about the American dream and Jefferson’s immortal words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Those words embody the American Dream: that our individual rights emanate from God, our Creator, not from man or government. It is that deep Judeo-Christian faith that enabled 56 men to embark upon the quest of creating a nation where the individual reigned preeminent.

So how was it that I gazed upon two electronic billboards promoting an ideology that translates into the word, “surrender?”

  1. The prophet, Ezekiel, predicted the current alignment of nations, particularly as they assemble against Israel. See Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 for more information.

  2. Col West I greatly appreciate your passionate patriotism. And yes, Muslims are trying to evangelize America with their religion. And yes Jesus is in the Quran but that is really not something to fear but to celebrate-because we can use those verses to point Muslims to Jesus. Even though the Quran denies essential truths like Jesus’ divinity, on the other hand it acknowledges that Jesus was born of a virgin, did miracles, will one day return, and even cooler it says that Jesus was sinless while showing Muhammed sinned. Isaiah 19 prophesies that much of the Muslims in the Middle East will come to Christ (Assyria, Egypt) and that they will worship with Israel.
    In my own studies of Islam and as confirmed by former Muslim terrorists who have come to Christ, God is using Islam-as one brother put it-to spank the church that is weak and compromised. On the other hand millions of Muslims are now coming to Jesus -many, many through Jesus appearing to them in a dream or vision. I have met over four such people myself.
    So yes, there is danger and darkness ahead. But God is sovereign and He has called us as the church individually and corporately to reach out to these Muslims who just don’t know better and have been deceived. We are called to love our enemies and it is our demonstrating the love of Christ to MUslims that we will win them over as is happening all over the world. God bless you sir.

  3. If nothing else, this article emphasized, without intending to do so, the need for a secular government and laws built upon secular ideals. Below, I will try to justify my opinion using a quote from a book I was introduced to while serving as a field hospital corpsman with the Fleet Marine Forces sometime in 1971.

    I most likely won’t debate this remark as I find that arguing against theology is like trying to slaughter flies with a sword. As soon as the sword strikes the fly, millions more appear and no matter how long or how diligent one fights with reason, irrationality, emotion and a reluctance of such opponents to sever onself from the mystics of the ages simply becomes too tedious and overwhelming for the rational senses to continue an irrational, unreasoned debate.

    At any rate, I am obliged to give my view in order for my conscience to depart this article with the sense that I have done my duty and left behind sufficient information, and to the open minded, evidence, that there is much to think about if we are ever to get to a state of being where individual rights, including private property rights, liberty and true and equitable justice are ever to come to pass on a global scale as they pertain to all men, not just those of so-called enlightened and wealthy societies of the West.

    “Modern nations, at the instigation of their priests, have excelled in the atrocious folly of the most barbarous nations; at least do we not find that it never entered into a savage’s mind to torment for the sake of opinions, to meddle in thought, to trouble men for the invisible actions of their brains? When we see polished and wise nations, such as th eEnglish, French, German, etc. notwithstanding all their enlightenment, continue to kneel before the barbarous God of the Jews, that is to say, of the most stupid, the most credulous, the most savage, the most unsocial nation which ever was on the earth; when we see intelligent persons occupy themselves foolishly in meditating on the wishes of this capricious and foolish God; we are tempted to exclaim, “Oh, men! you are still savages! Oh, men! you are but children in the matter of religion.

    Whoever has formed true ideas of the ignorance, credulity, negligence, and sottishness of common people, will always regard their religious opinions with the greater suspicion for their being generally established. The majority of men examine nothing; they allow themselves to be led by custom, authority; their religious opinions are specially those which have the least courage and capacity to examine; as they do not understand anything about them, they are compelled to be silent or put an end to their reasoning. Ask the common man if he believes in God. He will be surprised that you could doubt it. Then ask him what he understands by the word of God. You will confuse him; you will perceive at once that he is incapable of forming any real idea of this word which he so often repeats; he will tell you that God is God, and you will find that he knows neither what he thinks of Him, nor the motives which he has for believing in Him.

    All nations speak of a God; but do they agree upon this God? No! Well, difference of opiinion does not serve as evidence, but is a sign of uncertainty and obscurity. Does this same man always agree with himself in his ideas of God? No! This idea varies with the vicissitudes of his life. This is another sign of uncertainty. Men always agree with other men and with themselves upon demonstrated truths, regardless of the positionin which they find themselves; except the insane, all agree that two and two make four, that the sun shines, that the whole is greater than any one of its parts, that Justice is a benefaction, that we must be benevolent to deserve the love of men, that injustice and cruelty are incompatible with goodness. Do they agree in the same way if they speak about God? All they say or think about Him is immediately contradicted by the effects which they wish to attribute to Him. Tell several artists to paint a chimera, each of them will form different ideas of it, and will paint it differently; you will find no resemblence in the features of each of them will have given to a portrait whose model exists nowhere. In painting God, do any of the theologians of the world represent Him otherwise thatn as a great chimera, upon whose features they never agree, each one arranging it according to his style, which has its origin but in his own brain? There are no two individuals in the world who have or can have the same ideas of their God.

    Nothing appears more ridiculous in the eyes of a sensible man than for one denomination to criticize another whose creed is equally foolish. A Christian thinks that the Koran, the Divine revelation announced by Mohammed, is but a tissue of impertinent dreams and impostures injurious to Divinity. The Mohammedan, on his side treats the christian as an idolater and a dog; he sees but absurdities in his religion; he imagines he has the right to conquer his country and force, sword in hand, to accept the faith of his Divine prophet; he believes especially that nothing is more impious or more unreasonable than to worship a man or to believe in the Trinity. The Protestant Christian, who without scruple worships a man, and who believes firmly in the inconceivable mystery of the Trinity, ridcules the Catholic Christian because the latter believes in the mystery of the transubstantiation. He treats him as a fool, as ungodly and idolatrous, because he kneels to worship the bread in which he believes he sees the God of the universe. All the Christian denominations agree in considering as folly the incarnation of the God of the Indies, Vishnu. They contend that the only true incarnation is that of Jesus, Son of the God of the universe and of the wife of a carpenter. The theist, who calls himself a votary of natural religion, is satisfied to acknowledge a God of whom he has no conception; indulges himself in jesting upon other mysteries taught by all the religions of the world.

    If religion was necessary to all men, it ought to be intelligible to all men. If this religion was the most important thing for them, the goodness of God, it seems, ought to make it for them the clearest, the most evident, and the best demonstrated of all things. Is it not astonishing to see that this matter, so essential to the salvation of mortals, is precisely the one which they understand the least, about which, during so many centuries, their doctors have disputed the most? Never have priest, of even the same sect, come to an agreement among themselves about the matter of understanding the wishes of a God who has truly revealed Himself to them. The world which we inhabit can be compared to a public place, in whose different parts serveral charlatans are placed, each one strainging himself to attract customers by depreciating the remedies offered by his competitors. Each stand has its purchasers, who are persuaded that their empiric alone possesses the good remedies; notwithstanding the continual use which they make of them, they do not perceive that they are no better, or that they are just as sick as those who run after the charlatans of another stand. Devotion is a disease of the imagination, contracted in infancy; the fevotee is a hypochondriac, who increases his disease by the use of remedies. The wise man takes none of it; he follows a good regimen and leaves the rest to nature [the God of Nature, or Nature’s God – man’s nature]”

  5. The fact that there is an “anti-christ” assures me that there is a Jesus Christ. If not why would there have to be an anti? The fact that there is no anti-budda, no other anti anyones, just an anti-christ. Does that tell you anything at all?

  6. You may find Jesus in the Quran, but it is not the real Jesus…Immanuel, God with Us, born of a virgin, crucified to redeem mankind of sin, sitting at the right hand of the Father, and the coming King unto whom every knee shall bow. It is a false Jesus.

  7. – The view of Jesus and Mary in islam:

    In islam Jesus is looked at as a moderate view between two extreme views , jews humiliate jesus and his mother , whereas christians worship jesus and raise him above humanity, this thing jesus denied and refused .

    in the bible there has been altering but still there are in the bible sayings of jesus that makes us know the truth.

    let us take an example of jesus saying “My God” in the bible, one can find that in a lot of places in the bible like :
    <<>>
    and:
    <<>>
    and in alot of other places … we find jesus saying “My God” and praying to “his God”

    this word [my God, and your God] or [Our God] that jesus said means that we have a common God we and jesus, God means creator this means we r both created and raised by the same God,, we as well as jesus
    we always see jesus saying (my God) and praying to him why don’t we just worship the God of jesus , that is; the creator of jesus
    its amazing how jesus used to call God : (My God) and (Our God ) many times in the bible , God is the one who creats and rises that means jesus always used to say : (my creator).
    which agrees with islam view of jesus as human prophet and no more than that.

    Mary
    also mary is considered in islam , as a very great woman and the purest woman on earth , but not as mother of God !! whom he had made pregnant !! , nor his gf!

    2- Few miracles Of Quran
    Big Bang
    When describing the creation of the “heavens and the earth,” the Qur’an states the theory of the “Big Bang” explosion at the start of it . the Qur’an says that “the heavens and the earth were joined together as one unit, before they were aparted:
    Quran (21:30) {Have not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We cloved them asunder} [cloved them asunder means separated them].
    and this was 1400 years before the discovery of the big bang theory.

    Expansion of Universe
    this amazing theory was discovered in the 20th century that the universe is continuing to expand after the big bang explosion,,
    this idea ; that the universe is continuing to expand. was mentioned in quran 1430 years ago : {and The heavens, We have built them with power. And verily, We are still expanding it} quran (51:47).

    Someone 1400 years ago could not know the heavens and the earth had the same origin:

    Professor Alfred Kroner who is one of the world’s most famous geologists. He is a Professor of Geology and the Chairman of the Department of Geology at the Institute of Geosciences, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. Professor Alfred said:

    “Thinking about many of these questions and thinking where Muhammad came from, he was after all a Bedouin. I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years with very complicated and advanced technological methods that this is the case.”

    furthermore, In nicia council constantine forced people on only 4 gosepels , and burned alot of gosepels that said jesus was only a human prophet no more, and he killed those who oposed trinity , thus forcing trinity on christians ,

    Constantine was a roman pagan all his life , he wanted to be called christian but he also wanted to maintain his roman believes , so what he did was that he inserted the pagan beliefs of trinity and idol or statues glorifying and worshiping into christianity , thus deviating christianity from the true word of God ..

    thats why nowadays muslims r the real christians (followers of jesus) cause they follow the belief that jesus used to believe and the things he used to command , and they dont follow a diverted or a pagan originated believe.

    Conclusion:
    finally and in conclusion.
    i found that islam is the only religion that claims absolute uniqness of God and really means it and thus islam is the only religion today that follow the first commandment of all commandments to moses and jesus and mohammed which is :

    “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, [is] a jealous God:” [Exodus 34:14]
    and jesus said:
    after one of the scribes asked him Which is the first commandment of all? Jesus answered him, “The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord” [Mark 12:28to33]
    and in Quran : ” 1.Say, “He is God [who is] One, 2.God, the Eternal Refuge. 3.He neither begets nor is born, 4.Nor is there to Him any equivalent. ” (112:1)

    Islam is simplicity , clearness , direct teachings , and absolute uniqness of God , no embeded paganism or multi Gods.
