It is of little surprise anymore that the religion of Islam has declared war on world, especially the West. Regardless the reasons they give for their hatred of us, the truth is that their very holy book, the Qur’an, calls for them to wage war against non believers of Allah. As we have seen, regardless the times our leaders have appeased their demands, they continue to attack and infiltrate us from within.
A quick scan of the headlines every day will show how they attack us, but the way they are infiltrating our culture is more insidious than many would realize. Islam is beginning to win more and more Western men over to their ways by giving them something for which they yearn. It is something our culture is taking away from men, who need to feel whole and worthwhile. Islam offers men a sense of direction without taking away their manliness, and it appeals to their basic instinct that the liberalization and feminization of our culture is just wrong.
This is the first of a three part report on Islam and how it has been able to persuade so many men in the West to pledge their allegiance to the false god of Islam, Allah. My first example of what makes Western men an easy target for Islam will be the American-born, Muslim terrorist sympathizer, Adam Gadahn. Adam is an excellent example of so many men in the West who are looking for answers to their spiritual questions. Unfortunately, too many times young men are confronted with a Christianity that only reflects the very culture that leaves them cold. When Christians do not offer a contrast to the world they live in, then the world will begin changing them instead of their changing the world. That is what is happening in the West.
Many Christian ministries are nothing more then support groups that encourage the very heretical ideas that the secular world demands from them. Thus, the culture becomes more and more debased as the Church moves ever closer to reflecting the world. Islam comes along, and it offers drastic lines of right and wrong. It does so in a way that allows men to see a difference between the world and what Islam teaches. Many men learn that Muslims have the same complaints about Western culture as they do.
Another aspect is that the vast majority of men who gravitate to Islam have little to no experience with what Christianity teaches, other than what they learn in school, from movies, television, and what the MSM reports. The same is true for what they know about Islam. The secular world is currently espousing the idea that only a few radicals are involved in the terrorist attacks, and many even think that Muslims worship the same God as do Christians and Jews. As a result, no one should be shocked when a man gravitates to Islam instead of Christianity. After all, it’s just another way to get to heaven. Besides, they’re not expected to become a metrosexual, accept homosexuality as normal, nor listen to a woman preach to them from the pulpit. Adam’s upbringing, and the journey he took that led him to al-Qaeda are very similar to what confronts millions of men in the Western world today.
We learn from Proverbs 22:6, that if you train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it. Well, as you read, Adam’s father read the bible, but he never truly understood it. He and his wife did what most hippies did in the 1970s, they left it up to their son to find his own way to the truth. So while his son did gravitate to the same religion his father chose, he ended up looking for answers on his own, and found pure evil on the way. Sadly Adam’s future was aided in its course to hell when he moved in with his grandparents. The very people who raised his father to be agnostic, now gave him the tools and encouragement to find his own religion online. Now the grandson of Carl K. Pearlman is a member of a religion that is not only waging war against his adoptive country, but is also hell bent on exterminating his very own ethnic group.
A child’s brain is nothing but mush that must be molded, and it is our job as parents to introduce him to God so that He can help us mold him in His image. However, if a child is not introduced to Christ and given proper direction, he will inevitably find his own way. This is becoming a big problem in Western societies where parents refuse to push their beliefs upon their children. Many Christian parents fail to read the Word to their children on a daily basis, let alone force them to attend Sunday School.
Eventually when the children enter their teens, the parents wonder why they have lost touch with their offspring. They don’t understand why their children have the friends they have, or why it is they decided to follow a religion other than what they were taught. Well, the truth is they were never raised on the precepts of Christ, so they have no idea what to follow. A child left to find himself, and what he will follow spiritually, is but a mind full of mush that Satan has every intention of molding in his image.
