In response to my column ‘The US and Islam‘ someone I know told me that he recently wrote a letter to Dutch political parties with a Christian background (CDA, CU and SGP). I offered him to share his message with you through my blog, so here it is.
Like Geert Wilders (Dutch politician), I say, ‘It’s enough, building mosques must stop‘.
Enough is enough, we as Christians must confess that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, which is God’s command, even to Muslims.
The Rotterdam Essalam Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the Netherlands. But unfortunately, on a day like this the mosque is too small, so hundreds of people pray outside.
Dear politicians with a Christian background, I address this message to you.
During a recent political debate we all heard the arguments of Geert Wilders. Most of his speech was, as usual, about Islam. I think again he was not supported by anyone in the parliament, not even by the Christian parties. That surprises me greatly. Why? Because the Judeo-Christian faith is not accepted by Islam, which is written in the Quran and in different surahs. I will try to make that clear.
It’s about the Netherlands, its culture, values and norms. Let me be clear, the Judeo-Christian culture is, not only by Muslims but also by many Dutch increasingly transported to the trash can.
We live in a free country where everyone expresses his own opinion and fights for his own right. We live in a post-Christian age and the Bible, basis for Christianity, is no longer read in the Netherlands by a large number of people (Christians). You notice that in conversations with people (Christians) who unfortunately believe what some church institutions are teaching.
An example: Allah is the same as the God of Israel. Is that right? The Pope says it is and the PKN (Dutch churches) also teaches that, but is that really true? I don’t think so.
God, the Elohim of Israel has a name, the God, we must listen to as Jews and Christians. His name is Jehovah, I Am who I Am, I’ll always be there for your if you try to do what I say or ask of you.
The assignment for the Christian is to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom and of redemption through and in Jesus Christ to this world (including the Netherlands) and do not engage with other religions that deny the name of Jehovah and Jesus Christ and does not want to acknowledge him as their future king and savior. Islam is such a denying religion (ideology) because the Quran says that Jesus Christ did not die on a cross (see Surah 4: 157-158). Read the two following verses:
157. And [for] their saying, ‘Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah’. And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it exept the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.
158. Rather, Allah raised him up to Himself. And ever is Allah exalted in Might and Wise.
The next two surahs also show where Islam stands for.
(Surah 61: 9): It is He who sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth to manifest it over all religion, although those who associate others with Allah dislike it.
(Surah 8, verse 17): And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
Remember: Islam is ‘peace’.
The greatest proof that Allah and Jehovah are not the same, in my opinion is: Jehoshua, the Messiah is not described in the Quran as the Son of God (Surah 4: 171). Read verse 171, where you find this phrase: ‘Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son‘.
Islam denies by means of the Quran the crucifixion of Jehoshua and that he is the Son of God. With that the scripture, so very important for the reconciliation between God and man, is dismissed, ‘for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life‘ (John 3:16).
Geert Wilders warned the world about the domination of Islam, the great dangers that Europe and the Netherlands face if we don’t close the borders. He’s right, for 1400 years this ideology is trying to sow death and destruction. The Quran also states that if Jews, Christians and infidels are not converted to Islam, they all will have to disappear from this earth (so, be killed). We can still choose: 1 close borders, 2 stop immigration, 3 close mosques (certainly don’t build new mosques), 4 Yahweh or Allah, Jesus or Mohammed, Israel or Ishmael. Difficult? Don’t think so. Psalm 138 says: ‘I will praise thee with my whole heart, in the presence of the gods I will sing, I will bow to your house and I will praise your name YHWH, for your steadfast love and faithfulness‘. Fantastic don’t you think, when a Christian praises YHWH. Jesus says, there is only one name given under the heaven that will save us, because no one comes to the Father except through me, that name is Yashuha and means YHWH saves.
The apostle Paul writes in one of his letters, ‘I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse‘ (Galatians 1: 6-8).
So, say no to Islam (submission), take your responsibility and support Geert Wilders in his fight against these false teachings and the Quran. It would adorn the Christian parties if they would support Geert Wilders’ fight against Islam!
