This page is devoted to
articles and links concerning Islam. As a religion, it is contrasted
with Christianity. As a government, it is contrasted with democracy.
As an economy, it is contrasted with free enterprise. If coercion is
the mark of a cult, and if Islam is coercive, then as a
cult, Islam would have to be contrasted with
religious freedom. It is an issue of fact
whether Islam's belief system is maintained by
coercion, rather than by example and
persuasion. A number of Islamic nations are known to use
intimidation, brutality, violence, and outright murder to
enforce their internal rule. But is that politics, culture, or
the religion itself? Can these be divorced from one another in an
Islamic nation? Is "Separation of Mosque and State"
fundamentalists advocate the proactive killing of all
infidels (non-Muslims), not just killing in self-defense
against invading armies. That means they promote and condone attacks
against non-Islamic civilians. That type of unwarranted aggression
against non-combatants is
called terrorism. Many believe that
terrorism is not a necessary component of Islam. Others believe it
is. So does the message itself drive this terrorism?
Or is it the interpreters of the message?
need to inform ourselves about those who would use violence.
Out of love and concern for those who may be enslaved
by vicious cults using Islam as their justification, we need to
hear Islam's message clearly, understand its practices,
and refute those assertions and practices which
contradict the truth of God recorded in the Bible.
