Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations. Ezekiel 14:6
It is in the context of this passage and indeed others contained within Scripture that both the Church and Western society must analyse itself and be self-critical in regards to its relationship with Islam.
Defenders of Islam will tell you that it is definitely not a pagan religion devoted to a moon god. Unfortunately, that argument does not really hold water when you consider the following statements:
Moon plays a very important role in the lives of Muslims, the world over because they follow a lunar calendar – a calendar based on lunar cycles. This calendar is called the Hijrah calendar and it began from the day the Messenger of Allah,Muhammad S made his Hijrah(Migration) from Makkah to Madinah.
Muslims follow the lunar cycles carefully because of several time-bound religious obligations like Sawm (Fasting) in the month of Ramadan or Hajj (Pilgrimage to the Ka’bah) in the month of Dhul Hijjah. The month of Ramadan begins from the sighting of the new crescent and ceases when the crescent for the next month (of Shawwal) is sighted.
It may come as a surprise to many that because of major contributions made to the knowledge base of the world, more than two dozen lunar features have been named after Muslim scientists and scholars.
So, there we have it, Islam apparently has ‘nothing to do with moon worship’ but in fact the entire religious calendar revolves around…..the phases of the moon…and the small fact that the crescent moon is widely recognised as a symbol of Islam, something that makes even some Muslims wince because “it can be seen as a pagan symbol”. So, that makes perfect sense then doesnt it, nothing to do with moon worship but the moon is central to Islamic religious practice. The reality is that like everything else that is connected with Islam it is in short a massive stitch-up. Islam is not a ‘religion of the book’, it is not ‘another path to God’ (a statement made by many Church leaders which only shows the depth of their heretical betrayal of God and Christ and a direct contradiction of John 14:6)
The fact is this; Islam is a pack of lies, its a religion of deceit whose sole purpose is to lead people away from God. If we are judging something by its fruits then let us ask ourselves these questions. What benefit has our association with say, the government of Saudi Arabia brought us? It has brought death to our streets in the form of the Saudi governments backstabbing funding of ISIS.
Mecca and Saudi Arabia is the ‘mystery Babylon’ mentioned in Revelations. Together they form a political and spiritual hub which the Western world revolves its political decisions around. Oil, the “wine of fornication” is the life blood of Western economies. However, it is time to change course. World events, the rise of Islamic terrorism, the current stand-off in Syria, all contain the warning of severe consequences for our continued dalliance with Islam, in short it is time for sincere repentance and a political turning away from the Islamic world, away from false Gods to the one true God.
