The reason why I am voting for Donald J. Trump on November 8th.

If they (our elected leaders) could lie so easily and flippantly about something as serious as Benghazi, the question is what else have they lied about in the last 8 years? If you are a liar, you will lie about everything and anything...all the time...Neither one of them (Obama and Hillary) should be in such high positions in our Government. But I blame the American people. Talking is not enough. Consequences must be attached to wrong actions.

For example, Eli was the high priest of the nation of Israel for 40 years. He feared God and served Him faithfully, but His sons did not. They were wicked and Eli knew it, but didn't do anything about it. He could have removed them from the priesthood at a bare minimum. Does this sound familiar? We knew Obama and Hillary and many of their followers are lying, evil people and yet we do nothing about it. We let them take us down this path to the darkside. Satan often condemns us over the actions of others, especially our children. But God holds us accountable for our own actions, not theirs. Did you hear me, we are held accountable!

God believes in and practices personal liability. This is the truth! Apply this truth in your own life and business starting today. You're the only one you have absolute authority over and responsibility for. This nation has gotten so far away from the truth, they would not recognize it even if it slapped them upside the head. If we would follow God's lead and elect good, God fearing men and women to office, we can turn this whole thing around.

Exodus 18:21 "Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens." Jethro advises Moses to do this in order to successfully manage the thousands upon thousands of people God entrusted to him.

So in Exodus 18:25 Moses chose able men out of all Israel and made them heads over the people, leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens.

That is what we are called to do by God. Elect able men who fear God, who are truthful and men who hate dishonest gain. It's up to the American people, especially those who profess to be Christians (40 million of us), to get up off the couch and vote for the only candidate worthy to manage the greatest nation in the world. 

If all of us CHRISTIANS would vote, Donald J Trump would win in a landslide.

This is why I am voting for Donald J Trump!

Roberts Healing in Belize

Roberts Healing in Belize

On Wednesday, April 13th about 11:20 am the Charis team visited the local hospital in Belize City. We went there to speak life, pray for healing and give the love of Jesus to the patients that were there. There were three sections in the hospital: pediatrics, surgical and medical. We split the group up and sent teams into each section of the hospital. I went to the medical section on the second floor. The rooms were hot and had up to 8 patients in each room in this ward. The conditions were indescribable. We broke down into two's and LenDora Hawkins and I teamed up and walked over to a patient named Robert Del Romero? I believe that he had acute diabetes (word of knowledge) and probably pneumonia (word of knowledge) because he complained of chest pains when he breathed and lung problems. And of course he said he was blind. He had an oxygen tube in his nose and they were administering some type of intravenous therapy (IV therapy) and I could hear his ventilator each time it cycled and watched his stomach and chest expand and contract. He was in bad shape.

Len and I told him who we were and where we were from. We told Robert we were from America and that we were students at Charis Bible College Then we began just to love on him. He shared many things with us. He said “that he has many dreams.”(Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17)  In one of his dreams he said “that he was shown a large white book with gold edges and golden WORDS written on each page.” He said “that he was shown his full name written in this book”: he seemed to be a man of great faith. He said “that he was already born again and that he loved the Lord.” We told him that we wanted to pray for him and he said “that would be fine.” We asked him “what he could believe for; what he could agree with us for in prayer.” (Matthew 18:19-20) He said “that he could not see and he wanted to see.” So he wanted us to pray for his sight.

We began to pray for his eyes, lungs, blood, and chest and LenDora asked him to SAY that he was healed. So I began to pray the promises of God and to take our authority in the name of Jesus: I called things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17;          1 Corinthians 1:27-28). I called Robert healed. Len and I both were praying aggressively in tongues. As I laid my hand on his forehead, I could feel that he had a temperature. I prayed, in silence, for that temperature to dry up and to blow away. Then Roberts eye lids started to open, first tiny slits and then wider and wider until he proclaimed "I can see." I said to Robert, “what can you see?” And he said “the ceiling fan” and then he pointed at my Georgia Tech football shirt and then Len grabbed my Bible and asked him, “what is this Robert?” He said “it's your Bible.” Praise God!!! Robert's prayers were answered and my prayers I prayed before leaving for Belize were answered (Mark 11:23-24)

Pat Fisher, from the Belize CBC (Charis Bible College), was also in the room when he received his sight.  It’s all about Jesus (Isaiah 53:3-5)

Romans 4:17
…who gives life to the dead and calls things that were not as though they were.

1 Corinthians 1:27-28
27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, 28 and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are.

Mark 11:23-24
23 "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. 24 "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.…

Matthew 18:19-20
      19 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. 20 “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”

Isaiah 53:3-5
3 He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging (stripes) we are healed.

Joel 2:28
I will Pour Out My Spirit
28 "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.”

Act 2:17

Born This Way

This article is by Barry Bennett. I had to share on my blog. He is the Dean of Students at Charis Bible College. He is one of my favorite professors at the college. Barry has the anointing to teach simple truths from the Bible in love. He is awesome.

Sometimes a cultural catch phrase can be more accurate and more profound than was intended by the originator of the phrase. Certain lifestyles have been excused, tolerated and ultimately embraced under the pseudo scientific/philosophical declaration, ‘I was born this way.’ This is meant to disarm the critic and excuse the behavior of the one who seeks to defend his or her lifestyle.

To the shallow and uninformed, this phrase is sufficient to satisfy the conscience and pave the way for being ‘tolerant’ of whatever behavior is being discussed. Of course, even society will draw the line at certain types of behavior and not excuse the ‘born this way’ defense. That line keeps moving and as we speed toward the end of this age, it will probably disappear completely.

Right now the popular cause to support is the fight against sex trafficking. If the traffickers were to declare that they were ‘born this way,’ and thus their behavior is excusable, most would laugh. If the polygamist were to declare that he was ‘born’ to have multiple wives, some would laugh, but that line is moving. Within ten years polygamy will probably be legal. The definition of marriage has been changed for some and so it will eventually be changed for all.

Pedophiles could also declare they were born to desire sex with children. They can’t help it. It is like being born right handed or left handed. Society is encouraged to understand and be tolerant. The list could go on and on. Everyone wants to feel good about their behavior. Guilt is not politically correct. Even our modern grace movement is on a crusade against guilt which many are misinterpreting in order to indulge the flesh.

What is the truth behind the ‘born this way’ philosophy? It actually couldn’t be more accurate. All humanity is born spiritually separated from the life and nature of God. Apart from God, man has no true knowledge of himself, his Creator or his purpose on this earth. Apart from God, man has no true identity. We come into this world with no idea who we are, so we seek to create an identity or one is created for us through the molding of society, relationships, innate fears, the media and our life experiences.

The truth is, we were all ‘born this way.’ We all come into this world craving our true identity and not knowing that identity can only be found in Jesus. In order to navigate through life in a fallen world, we adopt an identity which satisfies on a carnal level our need for acceptance and purpose. Here is how Paul describes it:

This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. (Eph. 4:17-19)

The ‘rest of the Gentiles’ can really refer to all of humanity. The problem begins with the blindness of the heart which produces futility in the mind. The result is to give ourselves to lewdness and unclean living. And then, because of guilt and a deep dissatisfaction with life, we declare, ‘I was born this way.’ Yes, we were!

That is why Jesus said, ‘you must be BORN AGAIN!’ (John 3:7)

Whatever lifestyle, behavior and purpose some have embraced is simply a manifestation of being separated from the life and knowledge of God. It is a fake identity. It can never satisfy them. Those who so aggressively demand that you accept them just the way they are, are really demonstrating that their own conscience gives them no peace. The only solution is to force others to accept them and even embrace them. Perhaps then they can find peace. But society’s embrace will never produce peace.

Rather than adjusting to a life of darkness, blindness and corruption, Jesus came that we might have true life. We can be born into a new reality with a new identity and a true purpose. His nature can transform our hearts, renew our minds and free us from the identity theft that we have accepted. The lost are crying to know this life. The counterfeit they have accepted makes them aggressive, belligerent and even hateful, but God’s love is greater than man’s darkness. They were born that way, but they can be born again.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Cor. 5:17)

Who keeps stealing my money?

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.
Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION message was removed.
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. His promises are in black, with updates in red.
1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary [No longer voluntary],
2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program [Now 7.65% on the first $90,000, and 15% on the first $90,000 if you’re self-employed],
3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year [No longer tax deductible],
4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program [Under Johnson the money was moved to the General Fund and Spent], and
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income [Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed].
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
A: The Democratic Party.
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!
Now, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, though. Some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so — but it’s worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers. Liar Liar pants on firer. Democraps are liars.

Authority in Three Worlds


How far does that dominion extend?

The Bible says…There are three realms in which the authority of the name of Jesus prevails; heaven, the earth and under the earth, which is the dominion of the principalities and powers of the enemy.

Philippians 2:10-11

        “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

In order to be confident in our authority, it is important to understand where that authority comes from and what right we have to stand in that position. To have dominion in the earth requires a physical body.

John 10: 1-2

        …1 ”He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.”

Satan is the one who entered in some other way; he became a serpent He was not born in the earth. The only legal way to get into this earth with authority is to be born here.  Even the Angels can’t preach the Gospel in the earth. They don’t have that authority. We can’t send the Holy Ghost to Africa to preach the Gospel: the Holy Spirit doesn’t have a body. You are the one with the body, and you have the authority! When your authority and God’s ability get together, all things are possible. Satan is the thief and robber. Jesus is the Good Shepherd. Jesus was on here; He entered in by the doors for human birth. Jesus had the legal authority of a man born on earth.


Jesus came by the legal entry, through birth. He had all the authority of a man. He lived as a man and was anointed with the Holy Spirit. He went before us and destroyed the  devil’s works. He went to the cross, gave up His life, and became the supreme sacrifice. Because He suffered and died spiritually for us, He was born again and called the first born of the dead (Colossians 1:18); the first born among many brethren (Romans 8:29); and the first begotten of the dead (Revelation 1:5). Jesus was “born again” and He has become the door. Praise God.  The fleshly birth is the legal entry into the earth. But because Jesus is the Head of the Church and the firstborn of the dead, He became the door, or legal entry, into the kingdom of God. There is no other way. You can’t get there by a church door. You can’t get there by being baptized. You can’t get there by paying your tithes or by being a good person.   You can’t get there by being a Catholic, or a Baptist, or a Methodist, or a Lutheran, or a Mormon, or a Presbyterian, or a Muslim, or anything else……No, rather, you must be born again, and Jesus is the door of that new birth! Just as physical birth is the legal entry into earth, the spiritual birth through Jesus Christ is the only legal way into heaven!


When Jesus came to earth, He gave up His divine Power. He came as a man and took upon Himself the body of a man. He was deity here, but He did not operate in divine power. He operated in the authority of a man anointed with the Holy Spirit. Before He ascended to the Father, He commissioned His Disciples to go forth in His name, anointed by the Holy Spirit and do the same works that He had done:

Mark 16:15-18

        15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

He authorized them to represent Him to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out devils. He not only gave them authority to do this, but He also gave them the ability to do this through the power of the Holy Spirit.

John 14:12

        Jesus said, “…the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father”

Have you even thought about why He said “because I go unto my father”?  What does Jesus’ going to the Father have to do with it?  Jesus said,

John 16:7

        “… if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but I depart, I will send him unto you.”

Paul said in

1 Corinthians 12:27

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”

Jesus  has ascended to the Father. The only physical body He has on the earth is yours. Your body is the authority God has in the earth today. You are the one with the body! You are the one with authority in the earth, and He is the One with the power! Praise God. Jesus said, “I’m going to send the Holy Spirit (which is the ability of God) to reside in you. Then you will have the authority and the ability to destroy the works of the devil.” In other words, “If you’ll let Me use your body, I’ll let you use My ability.”

Romans 8:11 NLT

"The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you."

After Jesus rose from the dead, and until He ascended to the Father, He did not do a single miracle. He healed no one, cast out no demons, and raised no one from the dead. Why? Because He had become the glorified Christ. He had His glorified body and His divine power.  He had lost His right to minister anymore on earth as a man. He was restored to His Godhead powers. He no longer Had the body of a natural man: He had a glorified body.


It’s time for the Church to get the revelation of this: Satan doesn’t have a body and therefore has no authority on earth!

Jesus is speaking in John 12:31 (right before He went to the cross) and says, “Now is the judgement of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”  

The word for judgement is the Greek word krisis and is translated into the English language as “crisis.”  Crisis means “a turning point of this world. Now shall the prince of this world system be cast out.”  When I first read this I thought this was a future event, but evidently it took place when Jesus ascended to the throne.  There’s no doubt Who ascended to the throne or who the dragon was that was cast out of heaven. What Jesus didn’t do while in hell, He finished in heaven! Praise God.


Now notice this, in addition to being born here legally on earth and having received the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus said to use the authority of His Name to exercise authority and dominion in three worlds – Heaven, Earth, and Under the Earth. In other words, the region of hell as well as heaven recognizes the authority and power of this name – JESUS!

Matthew 16:19 NLT

“And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven."

The keys of the kingdom have been given to the church and we have the power of binding and loosing in all three realms. Every being in heaven, hell and earth must respond to that name: the name of Jesus! Praise God!

Look at this scripture again:

Philippians 2:10-11

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

The words “things” should really be translated as “beings.” In the Bible, things is italicized, which means that it was added by translators. Therefore is it safe to say that Things do not have knees!? Let’s read it like this: “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of beings in heaven, beings in earth, and beings under the earth: and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God, the Father. Someone may say, “Yes, that will happen when we get to heaven. Then, at that time, we’re going to have the Name of Jesus and all that authority.” Well, that might sound good, but what does verses 14-16 in

Philippians 2 say? blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life…”14 “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; 15 so that you will prove yourselves to be

Will there be a crooked and perverse nation in heaven? I don’t think so… Paul is saying man has the authority to operate with legal authority in three worlds from right here on the earth. Glory to God!!! It says. “Every knee will bow to the name of Jesus.” And He gave us His name to use right now.

Mark 16:17-18
“17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”


Delegated authority was given to us by Jesus Himself, so that we can fulfill the Great commission. We have authority for three reasons:

1.  We have been born of the flesh. That has given us a body which makes us legal on earth.

2.  We have been born of the spirit, which gives us the anointing from God. 

3.  Jesus has bestowed His name upon us. We have authority to use the name of Jesus as if it were our very own!!!


We stand in a very unique position through that name. Jesus said that every knee should bow: of beings in heaven, beings in the earth, and beings under the earth, including:

·        Principalities

·        Powers

·        Rulers of darkness

We can summon the aid of all heaven to work on our behalf here on earth. Jesus said in that day we would ask Him nothing, but whatsoever we would ask the Father, He would give to us. Now He abides on the earth and in us in the Person of the Holy Spirit. All heaven is at your disposal. Whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. Believers on earth have authority to use the mighty name of Jesus to bind certain things from earth. We can bind principalities, the powers, and the rulers of darkness. We can loose things on this earth that have already been loosed in heaven because we have the authority and the name that is above every name – JESUS!!!




To understand and talk about Islam we have to develop:

·       A rational study of Islam
·       A precise language that breaks the PC/Bigot barrier.
·       Easy to understand
·       Fact-based.
·       A way to separate religion from religion.
·       Complete approach.

The absolute foundational statement that everyone agrees upon concerning what Islam is based on:
                        “There is no god be Allah and Mohammed is his Prophet”

This is the beginning and foundation of Islam, everyone agrees.  So, where do we learn about Allah? The Qur’an?

1st Key to understanding Islam: There are actually two distinct Qur’ans under the same binding of a single book.

·       One written in Medina (36%)
·       One written in Mecca (64%)

These 2 Qur’ans are radically different: the Mecca Qur’an (earlier one) states (Sura 109:1), “You have your religion, I have mine”; the Medina Qur’an (later one) states (Sura 8:12), “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the Kafir (unbelievers). Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers!”

NOTE: The Doctrine of Abrogation regarding the Qur’an: “The later verse is stronger than the earlier verse.”  In Islamic logic, 2 things can contradict each other and still be true.

2nd Key to understanding Islam: There are 5 Pillars of Islam which every Muslim must follow; yet there’s not a single verse in the Qur’an that talks about how to do them.  However, there are 90 verses in the Qur’an that tell the Muslim he must imitate Mohammed’s life and deeds.  The life and deeds of Moham-med are not found in the Qur’an, but in the Sira (biography of the Prophet Mohammed) and the Hadith (traditions, the things Mohammed said, and things he performed).

3rd  Key…: There are three lies you’ve been told about Islam.

·       It is a religion.
·       It is a religion based on the Qur’an.
·       Islam is so difficult to understand and so intricate and subtle that you can never really understand it.

The truth is:

·       Only about 14% of the textual doctrine of Islam is actually found in the Qur’an.
·       Put together, the Sira (biographical stuff about Mohammed) and the Hadith (traditions formed around the person of Mohammed) contain 86% of the textual doctrine of Islam.

Therefore, Islam is 14% Allah and 86% Mohammed.  What this means is that we can know a tremendous amount about Islam without knowing hardly anything about Allah!

Thus everyone talks about Islam, but nobody can really tell you what it is - Islam. Here is what Islam it is:

            “Islam is the political/religious doctrine found in the Qur’an, Sira, and Hadith.”

What is found in the Trilogy of Islam is what Islam is; what is not found there is not Islam.

4th Key...: What we discover from the Trilogy of Islam is that it is far more concerned with the Kafir (unbeliever—“Infidel”) than the true believer.

·       64% of the Qur’an is devoted to who are the Kafir and how they are to be treated.  In every case the Kafir are to be treated badly.
·       81% of the Sira is devoted to Mohammed’s war and treatment of the Kafir.
·       31% of the Hadith (traditions) are devoted to the unbelievers (Kafir).

5th Key…: Islam is not a religion, it is primarily a political doctrine.  How do we know this?

            a. The Kafir are completely outside of Islam and can have no part in it.
            b. 60% of all doctrinal writings of Islam deal with “political” disposition of Kafir.
            c. Therefore, Islam is primarily a political doctrine, not a religious one.

“Political Islam is the Islamic doctrine that deals with the Kafir” (unbelievers).
6th Key…: Understanding Jihad.  How much of the Qur’an is devoted to Jihad?

·       Meccan Qur’an   – 0%
·       Medinan Qur’an – 24%
·       Sira                      – 67%
·       Hadith                 – 21% 

Trilogy                             – 31%

How much of Islamic doctrinal texts are related to Jews?

Mohammed’s message can be trusted, the Muslim will say, because he got it from Allah through the Angel Gabriel—and Gabriel is the same Angel who spoke to the Jewish prophets.
Mohammed cast himself in line with the prophets of the O.T.—the scriptures of the Jews.  So, the Meccan Qur’an has stories about the Jewish figures from what we know as the Old Testament of the Bible (The Book, as the Muslims refer to it).

No Jews lived in Mecca, but Medina’s population was 50% Jewish when Mohammed when there.  These Jews rejected Mohammed as one of their prophets.  As a result, the Medinan Qur’an becomes anti-Jewish. In the Trilogy, here is the breakdown of the anti-Jew content:

·       Meccan Qur’an  – 1%
·       Medinan Qur’an –17%
·       Sira                    – 12%
·       Hadith                – 8.9%

Trilogy – 9.3% overall is devoted to Jew-hatred.  By comparison, Hitler’s Mein Kampf devotes on 7% to Jew-hatred.

7th Key…: Knowing how successful Mohammed was from a business perspective.  Looking at the Islamic growth curve, we discover it has 2 very distinct growth regions.

·       Flat for the 13 yrs. Mohammed was in Mecca.
·       Exponential growth during his 23 yrs. during Medinan Jihad.
·       Averaging a bloody campaign of expansion every six weeks for the last 9 yrs. of his life, Mohammed saw every Arab become Muslim.

Had Mohammed never become a politician and a warlord, there may have been only a few hundred Muslims in the world at his death.

Conclusion: The “religion” of Islam was a total failure; whereas the “politics” of Jihad made Islam a massive success.

Summarizing the 4 fundamental facts about Islam:

1. Two Mohammed’s emerge from history—the peaceful religious leader in Mecca; the warlord politician in Medina.
2. Contradictions in the early and later Qur’an are solved (ostensibly) by the Doctrine of Abrogation (later texts overrule earlier texts).
3. In Mecca, no Jihad; in Medina the Qur’an is filled with Jihad.
4. Hatred of the Jew is missing totally from the Meccan texts; but a central theme in the Medinan texts of the Qur’an.

These 4 contradictions give us the true insight into Islam, because these things are all true at the same time. Islam is profoundly dualistic (perhaps even mildly to severely schizophrenic).

·       Islam always has two contradictory things to say on almost every topic it addresses.
·       It is religious; it is political—this gives it a stealth coating.

v Religious cover for its politics.
v Peaceful religion to cover its Jihad.
v Acceptance of Jewish prophets to mask Jew-hatred.

·       Which Islam is the real thing?  Both! And there is nothing you can do about it.

This is Islam greatest strength, for it keeps equitable-minded people off balance—“It is peaceful; or, is it Jihadist?”

8th Key…: Understanding Islamic Ethics.  Islam does not have a “Golden Rule”[2] Instead, it has a dual ethic system: one for believers (fellow Muslims); and one for the unbelievers (Kafir).

·       How are Muslims to be treated? From the Hadith 1) a Muslim never cheats a fellow Muslim in business, 2) a Muslim never touches another Muslim’s wife, 3) a Muslim does not deceive another Muslim.
·       How are the Kafir to be treated? In two ways: 1) as a friend, or 2) as an enemy—and both ways are equally ethical in Islam.
·       Islam practices taqiyya—“sacred deceit”—deception that advances Islam[3].  This means, practically speaking, a non-Muslim cannot expect a Muslim to honor any negotiated treaty or settlement since lying to a Kafir to advance the Islamic agenda is perfectly acceptable—in fact, positively laudable.  Can anybody say President Obama.

How many people have be killed as a result of the Islamic doctrine of Jihad?  Here is a breakdown from available historical data:

·       60 million Christians
·       10 million Buddhists
·       80 million Hindus
·       120 million Africans
Total victims of Islamic doctrine of Jihad (colloquially known as “Kill the Infidels!”) is a whopping 270 million Kafir over 1400 yrs.[4]

9th Key…: Law of Islam saturation.  In short, Muslims slowly moving into a country until their numbers reach political potency, and then taking over the country.  Startling examples:

·       In 600 years, Turkey went from being a Christian nation to being nearly 100% Muslim.
·       This is true for Egypt, a formally Christian nation—remaining Christians are currently being further marginalized by burning their churches, homes, schools, etc. by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood.
·       N. Africa, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon all formally Christian.
·       Afghanistan was once largely Buddhist.
·       Pakistan and Bangladesh were at one time completely Hindu.[5]

10th Key…: Islam’s treatment of woman.  The breakdown of Qur’anic verses dealing with women looks  like this:

·       15% of the verses hold women in high esteem (that is as mothers, and only as mothers);
·       23% of the verses speak of women as equal to men (but in full submission to her husband);
·       71% of the verses say women are held in low esteem.

The same can be said of the verses about women in the Hadith.  In fact, Mohammed once said he had a vision of hell and it was overwhelmingly populated by women.  When asked why, he said, “Because they were not submissive to their husbands.”

11th Key to understand Islam in recognizing what Dr. Warner calls the “Grand Lie”—that there is only one interpretation of Islam and that is the one offered by the Muslim.
In fact, there are three interpretations of Islam: a) the Believers view; b) the Kafir view; c) the Apologists view.
Bottom line: There are only two valid opinions about Islam.  One is the opinion of Allah and the other is the opinion of Mohammed.  Everything else is just commentary.  Islam is found in three historical sources.  Ranked according to volume of words, these are: the Hadith, the Sira, and the Qur’an.  If it is not found in these books, then, quite simply it’s not Islam.  From this we can confidently say Islam is more Mohammed than it is Allah.[6]

[2] “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  Jesus said in Matt. 7:12, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
[3] The 2000 Camp David Summit was a summit meeting at Camp David between United States president Bill Clinton, Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat. The summit took place between 11 and 25 July 2000 and was an effort to end the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The summit ended without an agreement. When Yasser Arafat returned to Jerusalem under extreme harsh criticism from the PLO, he responded by saying, in effect, that the negotiations were meaningless because he was employing the Islamic principle of taqiyya  (that is to say, lying to unbelievers to advance the cause of Islam—by gaining their trust in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them).            
[4] I think it is perfectly appropriate to acknowledge this historic and unprecedented “religious” slaughter of 270 men, women and children in the name of Allah during the 1400 yr. history of Islam the next time anyone tries to insist that “Islam is basically a peaceful religion.”
[5] No country has ever not become Islamic hundreds of years after Muslims have entered it. A very sobering thought given the hundreds of thousands of Muslims “invading” Europe in 2015 under the guise of “war refugees.”
[6] Or, if you dare to say it: it’s more the False Prophet than it is God.
