Beware the New Muslim Jihad on Facebook!

Satan knows scripture by heart. He purposely twists it to his own purpose. Just like the new breed of Islamic jihadists.

Satan knows scripture by heart. He purposely twists it to his own purpose. Just like the new breed of Islamic jihadists.

I received a friend request from a Muslim who was an operative of the new Islamic jihad being carried out on Facebook & other social media. I want you all to see how this new, organized ‘jihad’ looks. This guy LIED about wanting to know about Christ. Then he begins to use bible verses (like satan did with Christ) to create doubt in my mind (ha. ha.) He intentionally misuses bible verses to undermine Christianity. The way he answered so quickly with bible verses tells me that he had a list of topics and the bible verses to use for them. He was way too prepared for this to be a casual encounter.  Since this, many Christian bloggers on FB I know tell me that they are receiving daily friend requests from Muslims around the world.  I had read a couple weeks ago that Islamic jihadists have decided to embrace social media as their new battle ground.  THIS is the result of that effort.

    Hello, I see that you are a friend of my friend. But I see that you are a Muslim. Why do you want to be my friend on FB? do you want to know about the salvation of Christ that is for Muslims too? If so, I would be happy to tell you about how Jesus has provided forgiveness for our sins so that we can be fully reconciled to our Father, God. Muslims need Jesus too. Bless you, Susan

  • Bassam Gamal

    Yes i would like to know the Salvation of Christ , but can we argue about that on your wall posts ?

  • Bassam Gamal

    So can You Accept my Friend Request ?

    I went to your site and saw that you ‘like’ a FB site by a Muslim man. On that page, I saw some pretty radical posts by other Muslims. One spoke of the ability Allah (or Mohammed) gives Muslims to treat prisoners horribly in order to make them examples to other non-Muslims. It makes me wonder what kind of person ‘likes’ that kind of page. Bassam, I am a Christian who loves Christ. Having read some of the Quran from that man’s site, I can see that I AM one of those people who would tell you that the Quran is false- and that Allah is false. Why should you want to know me? Why do you want to debate it out on my page? I have no desire to debate anything with you or anyone. To come to Christ is to know peace. Christ is the only one who can and will forgive us for our sinful natures. All other religious practices teach that you must be perfect (or close) to get to heaven- or rely on the mercy of some god. It is impossible for any human, no matter how willing, to be perfect. That is the impossible burden all other religions place on people. But we Christians know that God already has had compassion on the creatures he made. He KNOWS we can not be perfect and thus, can never reside in peace near him. How can we then go to heaven? We are lost! This is why he gave the ten commandments- to TEACH us that we are sinful beyond repair. Then, once we as people knew this, he had compassion and sent Jesus to give us a way back to God. Through a simple faith in Christ’s ability and willingness to do so. THAT is how much God loves us all. We obey the teachings of God and of Jesus in order to demonstrate our love for God- Not because we need to in order to obtain everlasting life. Christ is our freedom. We are not free to sin- but we are free to finally BE the divine creatures God always intended us to be. Because of Christ’s willingness to forgive our sins, we can stand boldly before God- even now, before this body dies. What can be better than that?

    I will never bow my knee to any one else but God. Not Mohammed and not Allah. I TELL people about Jesus and the remarkable gift he bears for all who will believe in him. I don’t beg anyone. I don’t force anyone. I don’t debate with anyone. Christ is our earthly and heavenly king and he is returning. And when he does, every tongue will confess that HE is Lord and Savior of us all. Even all the Arabs & Muslims around the world. But those who do not believe before he comes will die. Some will be tormented forever in hell. None by man’s hand- ALL by God’s hand. That is also how Christianity is different than Islam- mankind is not the instrument of revenge or punishment- GOD is. You need not fear that Christians will come and kill you if you don’t believe in Christ. We leave ALL up to God. I truly wish Muslims would do that. But your faith requires the murder and torture of all who do not believe and the forced conversion of others. Don’t you know that even if the mouth says one thing, the heart can be reserved for another? What kind of God needs to use men to force others to believe in him? My God does not need this kind of lowering of himself. He simply IS. Christ simply IS. Those with eyes to see, will see. Those who can not see, will not see. No force necessary.

    But all this is the decision of the individual. I gave my life to Jesus’ great command: to tell everyone I meet about Christ and his remarkable, beautiful gift. That’s it. And now, I’ve told you. My job is done.

    So I hope you can see that I have no need and no desire to argue the matter. You either believe or your don’t. That is the great irony of God. He have his son as the only way to him because he wants Jesus to be honored as much as he is. But no one gets to feel the JOY of Christ UNTIL they accept him. This requires a leap of faith, Bassam. A total trusting. A complete and total giving over of yourself to Christ and his grace and mercy. Only then, if your heart is true, will Christ send the Holy Spirit to infuse you with the joy of God. I have felt this remarkable thing! And I was lit on fire- this passionate fire in my heart has never dimmed- and this occurred over 20 years ago. I want everyone to know this joy.

    Mohamed can not bring you to God. Only Jesus can. Perhaps Mohammed had some wisdom- but he was just a sinful man who had to apologize to God- even he admitted it. Jesus is the perfect Son of God- his divine begotten Son. There is no comparison. Mohamed wanted you to be good people and set out some laws. And this was good. But Mohammed can’t help you get into heaven. He can’t help you become perfect- or clean! He couldn’t even do this for himself! He had to ask God to forgive him! So, if he can’t forgive himself or make himself perfect, how can he do this for anyone else?

    Christ, as God’s perfect, begotten Son IS perfect. And he has been imbued with all the power of God. HE is empowered and willing to SAVE you from yourself and from satan, the destroyer. Only HE has been so authorized by God. Even Mohamed would not claim these powers. Mohammed gave laws and recommendations on how to live a good life.

    But Christ came to free us from the law- the law can not save us. It can’t save us because it condemns us. By our necessary failure (no one is perfect), we are all doomed to die if our salvation rested on total obedience of the LAW. Jesus freed us from the harsh requirement of death for our sins as outlined by the LAW. He brings forgiveness- and compassion. We can NEVER ‘earn’ our way to heaven, Bassam. God sees the evil that lies in every human heart- we can fool other men, but God always sees the blackness of our hearts. No one can earn their way out of our sinful CONDITION. We need HELP. And Jesus is that help- he helps us by simply FORGIVING us. And God said that if Jesus forgives us, then he will remember our sin no more. And we will be able to enter the gates of heaven. So, not be DEEDS but by grace do we obtain everlasting life.

    I can only hope you hear these words for they are the words of LIFE. I speak them with sisterly love for you as a human being. You NEED Jesus. And if you do bend the knee and come to him, you will find forgiveness for all your sins. You will be washed clean before God and you will see heaven. In addition, your life here on earth will be transformed into something you never knew was possible. The joy of a Christian can not be explained it words. It must be experienced.

    I do hope you hear me and find Jesus- for that is the ONLY meaning of this earthly existence. Susan

    oh susan u wrote me a book lol

    i will not talk much Dear, u spoke a lot of false things about islam with no knowlage

    i was wondring is jesus is God or he is the son of god ? how could he be god and son of god at same time that’s nosense don’t u think….

  • Saturday
  • Susan Shannon

    He is not God. He is the Son of God. I know that some people say that he IS God, but that is nonsense. The bible is clear on the matter. He is the SON of God. People say that he IS God because they have bought into the idea of the Trinity. Another concept that is NOT in the bible. A Christian scholar (Catholic, I believe) created this concept in order to explain the relationship between God, Jesus and the Trinity. He said they are all ONE, yet three separate Persons. To me, this is also nonsense. Jesus is Jesus. God is God. And the Holy Spirit is the Holy spirit. The bible makes NO attempt, whatsoever, to link the three into one Person. Many, many churches teach the Trinity Doctrine. But I do not trust what any man says. I trust only the bible.

    What did I say about Islam that was wrong? I only said that someone commented on that man’s FB page that you like. And in the verses he quoted, it said that you can punish and hurt those who do not believe to make them an example to other nonbelievers. I read the verses myself on that page. It is possible he put the wrong words there, but no one corrected him on it.

    The only point I made about Islam (on my own) was that Muhammad can’t save you from your sins. And that he sinned and was only a man. Not divine and not perfect. From what I understand about Islam, even Mohammad admitted this.

    I don’t really know much else about it.

    I spoke mostly about Jesus.

    I suppose I DID write a lot about Jesus. But that is because I LOVE him and want to share him with everyone.

  • Susan Shannon

    oops. I made a mistake above. I forgot some words. Allow me to correct. “People say that he IS God because they have bought into the idea of the Trinity. Another concept that is NOT in the bible. A Christian scholar (Catholic, I believe) created this concept in order to explain the relationship between God, Jesus and the HOLY SPIRIT. He said they are all ONE, yet three separate Persons.

  • Bassam Gamal

    susan i dont know which page u are talking about it would be nice if u gave it to me , and about jesus yes we also do not belive that jesus is God he is the prophet of God

    u say he is son of god , can u tell me please is god need a son?

    and we also love jesus.

  • Monday
  • Bassam Gamal

    susan so what say you Does The Creator needs a son ?

  • Monday
  • Susan Shannon

    ‘need’ a son? You would need to ask God that question. I know that God WANTS a son and HAS a son. Jesus is NOT a mere prophet of God. He is the SON of God. He is fully divine and when on earth, fully man also. He is more than a man. He is not the same as a man. He became a man for us so that he could bring his message of forgiveness to us in a form that we could understand. But Jesus is of the substance of God, not man. Jesus has existed since before God created earth. In the bible, it says, ‘Let US create man in our image.’ God was speaking to Jesus. Thus, Jesus is NOT a man at all.
    As for the page, let me go look on your page again.

  • Susan Shannon

    Ok, I found the page AND the comment. Here is the page:
    And here is the comment:

    Md Hasan—-” Surah Anfal surah no 8 ayat no: 36) Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allâh, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. (37 In order that Allâh may distinguish the wicked (disbelievers, polytheists and doers of evil deeds) from the good (believers of Islâmic Monotheism and doers of righteous deeds), and put the wicked (disbelievers, polytheists and doers of evil deeds) one on another, heap them together and cast them into Hell. Those! it is they who are the losers. (38 Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning). (39 And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All- Seer of what they do. (40 And if they turn away, then know that Allâh is your Maulâ (Patron, Lord, Protector and Supporter, etc.), (what) an Excellent Maulâ, and (what) an Excellent Helper! Surah Anfal surah no 8 ayat no: (49 When the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was a disease (of disbelief) said: ”These people (Muslims) are deceived by their religion.” But whoever puts his trust in Allâh, then surely, Allâh is All-Mighty, All- Wise. (50 And if you could see when the angels take away the souls of those who disbelieve (at death), they smite their faces and their backs, (saying): ”Taste the punishment of the blazing Fire.” (51 ”This is because of that which your hands had forwarded. And verily, Allâh is not unjust to His slaves.” (52 Similar to the behaviour of the people of Fir’aun (Pharaoh), and of those before them; they rejected the Ayât (proofs, verses, etc.) of Allâh, so Allâh punished them for their sins. Verily, Allâh is All- Strong, Severe in punishment. (53 That is so because Allâh will never change a grace which He has bestowed on a people until they change what is in their ownselves. And verily, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (54 Similar to the behaviour of the people of Fir’aun (Pharaoh), and those before them. They belied the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), of their Lord, so We destroyed them for their sins, and We drowned the people of Fir’aun (Pharaoh) for they were all Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (55 Verily, The worst of moving (living) creatures before Allâh are those who disbelieve, – so they shall not believe. (56 They are those with whom you made a covenant, but they break their covenant every time and they do not fear Allâh. (57 So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.”

    Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips was born in Jamaica, but grew up in Canada, where he accepted Islam in 1972. He completed a diploma in Arabic and a B.A. from the College of Islamic Disciplines (Usool ad-Deen) at the Islamic University of Madeenah in 1979. At the University of Riyadh, College of Education,…

    Well Yes if there is something my brain is unable to accept it i have to ask about that thing and right now my brain is unable to accept that God needs a son is God weak ? so he took a son to help him ?

  • Susan Shannon

    Is a Father weak because he wants a son?

    Is that why your father decided to make you?

  • Bassam Gamal

    so u calling God man like normal men

  • Bassam Gamal

    u describe God the Father like normal men

  • Susan Shannon

    But he did create us to be LIKE him. We are made ‘in his image’.

  • Bassam Gamal

    is he ?

    well im not sure that we are not made in his image the oldtestment say God is not a man and god is not the son of man

  • Susan Shannon

    No, of course he is not human. But he decided to create MAN in his image.

    God is God. Above all.

    Of course he is not a man

  • Bassam Gamal

    he decided to create man in his image it means that god is a man

    dont u think ?

  • Susan Shannon

    no. It means that WE are like HIM

  • Bassam Gamal

    yes we are like him he is like us he is man

    according to bible. . .

  • Susan Shannon

    no. I see your point. But just because we are LIKE him doesn’t mean we are the SAME as him.

    We are a mere reflection of him. Much less than he is. We will NEVER be him or equal to him.

    But he does consider us to be his children.

    Which is an honor above all honors.

    Jesus created this relationship with God when he told us that whomever obeys the commandments of God are his brothers and sisters.

    And as Jesus is his son, if we are brothers & sisters of Christ, then we too are sons and daughters of God.

    But it is clear that Jesus is only honoring us with this title.

    He said that because he obeyed everything that God ordered, he has gained the right to sit at the right hand of God.

    And if we also obey the commands of God & of Jesus, we will earn the right to sit with Jesus at his throne.

    There are some religions like Mormonism which say that we will eventually BE God. This is disgusting beyond belief. I speak out against them all the time.

  • Bassam Gamal

    susan let’s stick to the topic u said god created us in his image

    and that means god is man

    [Gn 6:6] – And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

    god have heart

    means he is man

    and here god have feet means he is man

    [Ps 18:9] – He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

    So is he man or not ?

  • Susan Shannon

    I AM sticking to the topic. You are not hearing me but wish to make a statement that the Bible does not say. Nor does any Christian say it.

    The statements about ‘feet’, etc, are figurative.

  • Bassam Gamal

    not its not figurative That’s wrong explantion can’t god give another Example of how he looks like ?

  • Susan Shannon

    He doesn’t have a biological heart- if that is what you mean. Perhaps you have a problem with english. But these are clearly figurative statements.

    Not in a way that ancient people could understand.

  • Bassam Gamal

    [Gn 3:8] – And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

  • Susan Shannon

    Do you expect him to describe himself as energy? or as some substance or form outside of time/space/energy/mass? How do you describe yourself to creatures who ONLY know the existence around them when YOU live outside of that creation?

  • Bassam Gamal

    he was walking in the Gaden so he have feet if god was spirit in bible why its written as walking not flying ?

  • Susan Shannon

    Yes, God took human form from time to time in the bible.

  • Bassam Gamal

    where is that ?

  • Susan Shannon

    I would imagine that God took human form so as not to frighten people.


  • Bassam Gamal

    where in the oldtestment god said i took human for


  • Susan Shannon

    Clearly, if he was walking in the garden, he took human form.

    would this be impossible for God?

  • Bassam Gamal

    no he didn’t took human form he is already human he is man just like us that’s why he said he created us in his image

  • Susan Shannon

    Bassam, what can I say? That is what you WISH to believe.

  • Bassam Gamal

    that’s not what i wish to belive that what the bible describe

  • Susan Shannon

    no. Others saw God and he looked totally different.

    He was indescribable. He glowed like metal and the power that emanated from his body caused the prophets to almost die in his presence.

  • Bassam Gamal

    [Ex 20:11] – For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

  • Bassam Gamal

    he rested and it means he was tired and only men who tired

  • Susan Shannon


    No, he rested because he wanted to rest. The bible is clear- God NEVER tires.

  • Bassam Gamal

    susan look just admit he is man

  • Susan Shannon

    Bassam, you are stubborn and wish me to say something that isn’t true. Why should I do that? You don’t understand English or you are willfully attempting to say whatever you want. I have answered every question and you refuse the completely feasible explanation. You want to pick and choose parts of the bible, but fail to understand the totality of it.

  • Susan Shannon

    You need to accept that you have not ‘proven’ anything. Because that isn’t in the bible.

  • Bassam Gamal

    susan i follow the bible explantion not your explantion , u give me wrong explantion of bible , u say he wanted to rest and that’s wrong there is another verse says god rested from the work he has done

  • Susan Shannon

    Bassam, is this why you wanted to talk to me? To say that the bible says God is a man?

  • Bassam Gamal

    no that’s not but that’s the topic now

  • Susan Shannon

    No, I gave the bible’s explanation. YOU read into the verse that he NEEDED to rest- but it doesn’t say that, does it?

    It is YOU who wishes to ADD to the bible, not me.

    Bassam, I learned LONG ago that those who seek God will find him. Those who reject him, will not find him. It is not for me to teach you about God.

  • Bassam Gamal

    [Ex 31:17] – It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

  • Susan Shannon

    I do not debate with people over God or Jesus. I tell them about them. I am not interested in this debate. Please tell me what you actually want or I will end the conversation.

  • Bassam Gamal

    ok forget that topic

    u worship jesus ?

    or father

  • Susan Shannon

    Why are you interested in being my friend?

  • Bassam Gamal

    well because i saw some things on your wall which conflict the bible so i wanted to comment on it

  • Susan Shannon

    Then why are you talking about this?

    Why do you want to talk about the conflicts on my wall?

    What is your intention?

  • Bassam Gamal

    u said god created us in his image and when i tell u that mean he is man so how could u worship man ? that’s what i wanted t osay

    my intention is to show u that u say things conflicts the bible so u might make reason.

  • Bassam Gamal

    also saying that jesus was there before god create the earth it doesn’t mean he is god because solomon son of daivd said the same about him self
    [proverbs 8:22]The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,[a][b]
    before his deeds of old;
    [proverbs 8:23]I was formed a long time ago,
    before the world was made.

    that means he is god too ?

    [NOTE from Short Little Rebel:  Bassam, the joker, took this verse completely out of context from Proverbs.  This was Solomon’s poem where WISDOM has been personified.   Wisdom talking about herself.  See the note below for the entire poem/proverb.  THIS is the sneakiness of the Muslim jihad.]

  • Susan Shannon

    Bassam, listen. I don’t like when people are not straight forward. I am a very straight forward person. I say what I mean and what I want and I hide nothing. You, on the other hand, evade my questions. I have dealt with people for many, many years.

    The very last thing I need is a Muslim telling me about how my statements conflict with the bible- a book he does not know, understand or love! I can assure you of this: God is with me. And when God is with me, no man can prevail against me- just as your weak arguments were brought down with complete reason and you could not answer them. You were left with begging me to admit what you wanted! That is very sad for you.

    You can either hear the word of God, which I have given to you, or you can reject it. Muslims took the wrong course when they began to worship allah. There is only one God and he is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    I will now bid you goodbye. Good luck bothering other Christians who do not know their bible or their God as well as I do. btw: I NEVER conflict with the Word of God. You do.

    Proverbs 8:
    Does not wisdom call out?

        Does not understanding raise her voice?
    At the highest point along the way,
        where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
    beside the gate leading into the city,
        at the entrance, she cries aloud:
    “To you, O people, I call out;
        I raise my voice to all mankind.
    You who are simple, gain prudence;
        you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.[a]
    Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say;
        I open my lips to speak what is right.
    My mouth speaks what is true,
        for my lips detest wickedness.
    All the words of my mouth are just;
        none of them is crooked or perverse.
    To the discerning all of them are right;
        they are upright to those who have found knowledge.
    10 Choose my instruction instead of silver,
        knowledge rather than choice gold,
    11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
        and nothing you desire can compare with her.

    12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
        I possess knowledge and discretion.
    13 To fear the Lord is to hate evil;
        I hate pride and arrogance,
        evil behavior and perverse speech.
    14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
        I have insight, I have power.
    15 By me kings reign
        and rulers issue decrees that are just;
    16 by me princes govern,
        and nobles—all who rule on earth.[b]
    17 I love those who love me,
        and those who seek me find me.
    18 With me are riches and honor,
        enduring wealth and prosperity.
    19 My fruit is better than fine gold;
        what I yield surpasses choice silver.
    20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
        along the paths of justice,
    21 bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me
        and making their treasuries full.

    22 “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,[c][d]
        before his deeds of old;
    23 I was formed long ages ago,
        at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
    24 When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
        when there were no springs overflowing with water;
    25 before the mountains were settled in place,
        before the hills, I was given birth,
    26 before he made the world or its fields
        or any of the dust of the earth.
    27 I was there when he set the heavens in place,
        when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
    28 when he established the clouds above
        and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
    29 when he gave the sea its boundary
        so the waters would not overstep his command,
    and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
    30     Then I was constantly[e] at his side.
    I was filled with delight day after day,
        rejoicing always in his presence,
    31 rejoicing in his whole world
        and delighting in mankind.

    32 “Now then, my children, listen to me;
        blessed are those who keep my ways.
    33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
        do not disregard it.
    34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
        watching daily at my doors,
        waiting at my doorway.
    35 For those who find me find life
        and receive favor from the Lord.
    36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
        all who hate me love death.”


  1. Amazing… I’ve been talking to someone who sounds exactly like this. Except since I have a lot of experience I ask questions he can’t answer. It helps to know what the Quran says. We need to be able to fight back with the truth. I now let him post on my wall, and I keep it there so others can see how to answer him. We can’t be afraid to fight. And they should be the ones blocking us, not the other way around. (which does happen to me)

  2. What about 60 million Areminian Christians murdered by Muslims? What about 1000s of Christians murdered by muslims in Middle East, Syria, Iraq, Iran etc. What about 1000s of Hindus, Sikhs in India, murdered by Muslims? What about 1000s of Hindu and Sikh women raped and torched and forced them to convert to Islam by Mughals in India? What about the current torch er and killings going on in Syria,Iraq etc. What about 1000s of Jews murdered in Saudi Arabia and other place during the time of Prophet Mohammed? What about the Israeli Sport Men burned by Muslims? Any Answer?

  3. SLR I was reading your convo with the muslim brother. And I just saw it as a huge waste of time. You gave him all he needed when you wrote him a “book”. After that it was all set up questions he already has answers to. And you even agreed with him that Jesus was not God!! When Jesus Himself compared himself to the Father as equal, and was given the power to forgive sins, etc. Something only God the Father could do. I was shocked I guess, and I wanted to share a little. Anyway, I enjoy your blogs and I wanted to comment a lil bit. Blessings Sis

    • yeah, but it was my Christian duty to at least try- as he began by saying he wanted to know about Christ. It was a bald faced lie. After I was completely convinced he had lied, I gave up. Sad.

  4. Very Interesting how it seems a loyal Midwayer or something led me to your site, personality led me to your REAL FB site (I Believe), and the spirit guided me towards responding. Thank You for being Real and GOD Bless You, and your Glorious Works. Keep Up the Faith and Goodness.

  5. One of the names given to Allah in the Quaran ascribes to Allah is khayru al-makireen, that Allah is “the best deceiver/schemer/conniver” (cf. S. 3:54; 8:30). ….GOD is the best liar?..Oh..I see..the word OF God states that SATAN is the Author of all lies…

    This Muslim was asking questions in a manner that was trying to get “man” to “reason” with a human point of view. How can God be a man? Jesus proclaimed he was The Son of God..The Son of Man…did he not? Did he not also say “I and My Father are one? Muslims will not argue that “GOD” is the creator of all things..but rationalize away that Jesus could not have been God in the flesh as “The Son of God”? How is this possible? Muslims rationalize away that Jesus is the Savior of the world..because their Quaran teaches he was not.

    Yet we hear of Muslims by the thousands around the world seeing visions and hearing the voice of Christ speak to them. We see Muslims leaving the Islamic Faith, and converting to Christianity. Isiah 11:11 teaches that in the latter days, God would gather this remnant..the Muslims who believe in the true God of the Bible, and bring them into the barn at harvest time.

    Once the Great Gathering has occurred, ( Rapture) the Apostle Paul tells us in 2 Thessalonians that God himself will send a strong delusion to the unbelievers..that they might believe a lie, for they rejected the truth, and will perish.

    Islam is Anti-Christ..those that believe that Muhammad is the savior, and that he will return as the 12th Imam are damned. Once the rejection is recorded..there is no second chance. Pray for Islam to come to Christ before it’s too late. Pray for Israel to turn to Christ before the time appointed..pray for the United States to get right with God and find true salvation in Christ…the end is near as we know it, and time is running out.

  6. John 1:1 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. ( Jesus is God )

    • Tim, yes. I know. But this can also be to say that Christ is DIVINE. It clearly shows, even here, that Christ and God were separate. Otherwise, in the beginning, he was WITH himself.

  7. Susan, please help me to understand your position on the Godhead.
    Some of your comments made in this post seem to be at odds with your church’s position, or am I getting it wrong? Thanks

    We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that they are co-eternal in being, co-equal in power and glory. Even so, we recognize that each member of the Godhead has appropriate roles within the redemption of creation and humanity that involve submission and sacrifice. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
    We believe in Jesus Christ, who became human without ceasing to be God. We believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death for our sins. We believe in His bodily resurrection, in His return to the Father, in his advocacy as our Priest, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that He is the only way of salvation and reconciliation to God. (John 1:1–2, 14; Luke 1:35, Romans 3-8; 1 Peter 1-2; Ephesians 1:7, Acts 1:9, 10; Hebrews 7-9; 2 Timothy 4:1)

    “He is not God. He is the Son of God. I know that some people say that he IS God, but that is nonsense. The bible is clear on the matter. He is the SON of God. People say that he IS God because they have bought into the idea of the Trinity. Another concept that is NOT in the bible. A Christian scholar (Catholic, I believe) created this concept in order to explain the relationship between God, Jesus and the Trinity. He said they are all ONE, yet three separate Persons. To me, this is also nonsense. Jesus is Jesus. God is God. And the Holy Spirit is the Holy spirit. The bible makes NO attempt, whatsoever, to link the three into one Person. Many, many churches teach the Trinity Doctrine. But I do not trust what any man says. I trust only the bible.”


    • Hi Michael, the Trinity is a tricky subject and I personally don’t think we humans are capable of understanding it. I do differ from my church’s position. What can I say? I am my own person. I’ve only read one statement in the bible that actually calls Jesus ‘GOD’ and that is in John. And to me, since John’s entire point of writing his book was to negate the existing gnostic movement’s claim that Jesus was MERELY a perfect man by stressing his divinity, I think that can be taken as a figure of speech. In the Old Testament in Isaiah, it seems to say that Jesus will be called, ‘Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.’ But does that mean he IS God? We do call him God. But is that right? I don’t know. It seems to me that there is FAR more evidence that Jesus is himself, the Son of God. And that God is himself- the God, the Father, the Maker of all things. And the Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, Jesus authorized himself, keeps secrets from himself (as in the exact day and hour of his return), teaches himself, orders himself, obeys himself, blesses himself, is pleased with himself, etc! Also, he told us to pray to the Father in Heaven, not himself. He never claimed to BE God and always spoke of God as a separate person than himself. Also, Jesus SENDS the Holy Spirit. Is he sending himself? Is he sending God?

      To me, the few times in the bible where Jesus is equated AS God, it is more a figure of speech to express his divinity, his lordship, his Sonship to God. To set him far over mere humans.

      But in the end, if I am wrong, then I know my God will forgive me. He will forgive all of us. The bible leaves it open enough to cause some of this confusion. I don’t believe we are ABLE to understand their relationship with one another. So I am content to wait until I can.

  8. SLR,
    Perhaps Ladybug was referring to 2 Timothy 2:23 in which Paul was telling him “But stay away from stupid and ignorant controversies-you know they lead to fights, and a slave of the Lord shouldn’t fight.” This doesn’t mean that as followers of Yeshua we should not question and ignore legitimate controversies, but just foolish or non productive ones with people who are just trying to be argumentative. It’s kind of like the old question of ‘how many angels can fit on the head of a pin’ type argument.
    In reading your discourse with that gentleman, it appeared (to me) that he was just trying to exasperate you with his twisting around of the bible and your words. I do not FB so I won’t wrooy about people like him. Also, I think you did an excellent job in dealing with him-you were a lot more patient with him than I would have been. Continued Blessings:)

  9. Hi Short Little Rebel, I adore your site, and your passion for God and Christ. Thank you for your engagment, which inspires me a lot. I have also found the site of answeringmuslims very helpful and insightful. As to your exchange with LadyBug I have a source of the Bible that she might have had in thought: I personally think, you were very brave in your discussion with the muslim guy, but I would not have taken it to such length, although after having read your last statement, I see completely your point!

    • Yes, because he told me he was interested in learning about Christ’s salvation, I was willing to be patient. Very patient. I just wanted to make very sure he was NOT interested before I blew him off.

  10. Susan. You were right in declining that Muslim’s request to be your Facebook friend. His intent was merely to sow deceit and confusion among your many Christian readers. There are just so many things in the Quran that go against Jesus’ teachings. I cannot help but to believe that instead of the Angel Gabriel, that Mohammad was, in fact, listening to the Angel Lucifer instead. It is also the case that in the Quran that it says that Jesus did not die on the cross, but that he would return to the Earth and deny that he was the Son of God. That makes that book about as ‘un-Christian’ as you can get. I have encountered Muslims before who wanted to initiate a conversation about my Christian faith. They would always start by being circumspect about their own motivations, even about the fact that they were Muslim. Then they would begin with falsehoods about Jesus and Christianity. The conversation would go downhill from there always.

    • Interesting, Jerry. One must be careful when witnessing to Muslims. We must witness to all who ask, but we must also trust in the promptings of the Holy Spirit. When it is time to cut off the conversation, it’s time.

      • Absolutely good advice your dad gave you, John. Like the country western song says, “you gotta know when to hold them, know when to fold them, and know when to walk away.” I was told there are three things which should never be discussed: Politics, Religion, and the Great Pumpkin. Don’t know about the great pumpkin, but the other two have been discussed a lot, mostly by people who have little or no knowledge of either topic. I don’t claim to be an authority, but do know arguing about anything is a waste of time. Debate, yes, argue, no. I don’t mind listening to other theories/opinions, but its my belief the Holy spirit within us, will guide you to the truth, if we allow it to. I base my belief on the Bible, I trust what it says to be the word of God, as he inspired men to write. I heard a comment I agree with: “God said it, I believe it, that’s t!” Hope everyone has a pleasant evening.

  11. And I assume after all that he’s NOT your friend on FB. 🙂
    But you were presented with an opportunity to witness and defend Christianity which you did admirably. Who knows what good may come from that time you spent? At the very least, if he doesn’t have a change of heart, he’ll be less heartened to try his new sneaky tactic on others.

    • You know, I actually prayed for him the Sunday before this… debate. I had hoped he would watch our online service. I didn’t know at the time that he was there only to make mischief. But like you said, I did witness to him- I trust in the Holy Spirit and in the power of God’s word.

  12. Reblogged this on PUMABydesign001's Blog and commented:
    Patriots, evil is all around us and working hard on Facebook as jihadists chosen this venue to attack Christians in an effort to shake their faith. The jihadist mentioned in the above post clearly chose the wrong Christian. Please share and warn others about the evil lurking in the dark corners of Facebook.

  13. Susan, I did not detect the same evil in Bassam that you derive, possibly from other sources than his comments. He has merely taken issue with some things you have said as your interpretation of the Bible and expressed them. Where is the evil in that? Religious scholars and historians take such issue all the time.

  14. The Bible, also, says to keep out of controversial subjects, so I try to do that, and let God sort it all out. I am a Christian, and as such, I do state my beliefs on occasion, if someone shows interest, but to those who hear, but reject, I leave it to God to enlighten them through his holy spirit; however, it is, ultimately, up to the individual to open their heart to the holy spirit, in order to learn truth. Our God does not use force to persuade anyone, for what love would one, really have if it is a forced emotion, which would only be pretend, as while you may be able to force someone to, verbally, acknowledge a false teaching/god, you can not force them to, actually, believe it, because you can’t control their private thoughts of their heart. Remember, Jesus led, he did not shove.

    • Ladybug. The bible said to keep out of controversial topics? You will need to provide the chapter and verse on that! Jesus IS the most controversial person who has ever lived. Jesus and the apostles caused HUGE social & political upheaval in their day- that is why they eventually caught the attention of Rome. And were murdered. Jesus told us that we will be HATED, persecuted, beaten and even killed for our testimony. He said that this will be a sign that we belong to him- that we are not of this world. People are only beaten and killed because they cause controversy- not because they cause peace.

      • I do not recall which part of the Bible I read that in (staying out of controversial topics) but will try to find it; could be it was something I was told is in the Bible, since sometimes, I get confused with what, I, actually, read, and what I heard. Yes, Jesus was controversial, and still is. I do know, from personal experience, that he hears, and answers; I had an incident years ago, where someone was trying to convince me it was wrong to celebrate Christmas and various holidays, including birthdays, because John the Baptist was beheaded at one of the king’s birthday parties, but I informed the person, things have changed since then, and the most violent we get at kids parties now, is pin the tail on the donkey, or hitting a piñata. I began looking for an answer in the Bible, knowing how near impossible it would be to find just the right verse in such a thick book, but, as it turned out, God led me straight to a verse which says: “Let no one condemn you for keeping a celebration.” Of course, the had an explanation for that, as well, but to me, I had my answer, straight from the source.

      • This is not from the Bible, but it was given as sage advice from my father to me: There are two kinds of people you cannot argue with, drunks and idiots. Once you have determined whether a person is drunk or not then one can assume the other. In the previous exchange the argument did not have to progress to the point of exhausted frustration because of that cat and mouse game. Once a reply was made in good faith the Muslim then had the upper hand. Perhaps a better response may have been to call his game and terminate the exchange. Sometimes we allow our own egos to get in the way of better judgement. When an expert is needed refer to the expert. If it feels like a game, its a game.

      • John, I can assure you that I wasn’t arguing with him. He had told me that he wanted to know about Christ’s salvation. I take Jesus’ command to witness to people seriously. If a person tells me they want to know Christ, I have a lot of patience with them. At first, I thought his questions were legitimate. That is why I answered them. Then, when it became apparent that he just wanted to argue with me, I stopped. If I had just ‘called the game’ and terminated the exchange too early, I would not have been SURE what his true intent was. If he really did have questions about God and Christ which might have led him ultimately to Jesus, had I taken your advice, I would have been responsible for his death and God would not have been pleased.
