BEHOLD THE BEAST
This book was not written as a higher criticism of Islam, but so that both
Christians and Muslims could have a knowledge of the true nature of
Islam. Having now read this book, Christians should see the need for
being effective fishers of Muslims through the enabling of the Holy
It is sad to note that Christianity has had little impact on the Islamic
world. Christ has gotten very few converts from Islam when compared
with those from other religions.
I proffer the following five reasons:
(1) Islam, being anti-Christian to the core, prejudices its adherents
against the Gospel right from infancy.
(2) We have not really displayed God's kind of love toward them.
(3) Most of us fear Muslims as if they are dynamite.
(4) Unbelief and procrastination on our part - coupled with the apathy
of the church toward Muslim evangelism.
(5) We have not taken pains to understand Islam (How many Christians
have any idea what the Koran teaches?)
I want to say here, those Christian brethren in Nigeria who think
they can flee South for safety when the Muslims strike, need to re-think
their position. The reason being: the Muslims still eye the South, since
the original plan of the Jihadists was to bury the Koran in the Atlantic
Ocean. The solution is evangelism. It is not in fleeing southward, nor to
anywhere else, for that matter. Evangelism is God's command and we
can't disobey it and expect God's blessing. Muslims will cease to be a
threat if we evangelize them, so we do ourselves a favor if we heed God's
God could be using the children of Hagar, the "bondwoman," as His
chastening rod for the church (in the same way that He used Nebuchad-
nezzar against the Israelites).1 If we really believe the Gospel, we must
reject the spirit of Jonah (to flee to Tarshish). We must reach out to
Muslims with the Gospel of God's love, for the Bible says:
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other
name under heaven given among men whereby we must be
saved. (Acts 4:12).
Jesus has also paid for their salvation with His own precious blood
and He even obtained a receipt as evidenced by His triumphant
resurrection. Any Muslim that now dies and goes to Hell is a loss to
Christ. And Christians who do not witness will not be innocent on that
day (Isaiah 56:10, 11; Ezek. 3:17, 18). Refusing to preach the Gospel is
the worst of crimes, with eternal consequences. Let us arise, for the
King's business requires haste. Further delay could be disastrous. The
results belong to God (1 Corinthians 3:6).
1 Editor's Note: Brother Ali is referring to the Scripture that identifies the children
of Hagar (the Arabs) as children of a bondwoman: Gal 4:24-25, "This is
allegorically speaking: for these women are two covenants, one proceeding from
Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar. Now this Hagar
is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in
slavery with her children." And most Arabs, and much of the third world, are
indeed in unwitting slavery to a false religion.
