Have a listen to Representative Keith Ellison of Michigan, the first Muslim to be elected to United States Congress.
Here is what many would call an “educated”, “moderate” Muslim and what comes out of his mouth? I mean, he’s participating in a “civilized”, western government. Surely he doesn’t really believe what Islam actually teaches does he?
I don’t believe it’s possible to understate the importance of recognizing Islam for what it is.
It is possible, however, to underestimate Islam’s intentions, and many people have done so to our country’s detriment. Some are naive. Some are mistaken. Some do it willingly.
There are no moderates, people.
Islam is a system of totalitarian ideology in direct opposition to our Constitution and it teaches intolerance and hatred toward Jews, Christians and anyone else who does not profess Allah as God. It is the chosen religion of the Antichrist that he is using to build his final kingdom on the earth. In fact, Islam actually teaches that the coming biblical Antichrist will be the savior of the world. Islam is migrating to all of our countries with no intention of respecting the individual cultures of the countries it enters. When a billion+ people who practice Islam are waiting to give their allegiance to the biblical Antichrist upon his appearance, what do you think is going to happen?
Ellison is emboldened to make comments like these because he is cruising in Obama’s wake. Our western leaders are not only allowing Islam to spread but are actually making it easy for it to do so. There is no explanation that can account for this acute interest in Islam that has been cultivated over the last decade except to say that it is the deluding influence that God has promised to send. You know… Islam as a peaceful religion.
Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught, whether by word of mouth or by letter from us. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.
[2 Thessalonians 2:1-17 NASB]
Wake up Christians. Wake up America. Wake up world. Get close to Christ. There is no such thing as moderate Islam.
