Hebrews 10 – The Appeal to Hold Fast & Islam Exposed

I would not call myself a preacher or evangelist or anything like that, I created this blog because I used to be a horrible person and I found a great thing that I want to share with the world – Jesus Christ.

But I’m not here to convince people to change their ways, I’m here to educate those that do not understand how tricky and evil many people can be, even some preachers, evangelists, and just regular talks shows, along with certainly politicians/presidents, etc.

As I state at the beginning of the below article, God gives us choice of where we want to spend eternity.

Therefore, since this article has only shown one side of the Islamic religion, here is the other side if you want to become a Muslim

In the below article I mentioned that the Catholics ignore God’s warning about worshiping the sun (Deut 4:19), so tomorrow we’ll look at…

Hebrews 10
The Appeal to Hold Fast

1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

“The law” – together with the Levitical priesthood to which it was closely linked under the Mosaic system.

“Having a shadow” – the sacrifices prescribed by the law prefigured Christ’s ultimate sacrifice. Thus they were repeated year after year, the very repetition bearing testimony that the perfect, sin-removing sacrifice had not yet been offered.

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

“Not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins” – an animal cannot possibly be a complete adequate substitute for a human being, who is made in God’s image.

5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

10:5-6 – the different terms used for Levitical sacrifices represent four of the five types of offerings prescribed by the Mosaic law (Lev 1-7), namely, peace, grain (“meat”), burnt and sin.

“When he cometh into the world, he saith” – the words of this psalm of David (40:6-8) express Christ’s obedient submission to the Father in coming to earth. The Mosaic sacrifices are replaced by submissive obedience to the will of God (v. 7).

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

“Though hast had no pleasure” – these offerings were only preparatory and temporary, looking forward to the one perfect and final offering – that of the incarnate Son of God.

7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

“To do thy will” – the will of the Father was the Son’s consuming concern (see Lk 22:42; Jn 4:34).

8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;

9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first that he may establish the second.

“He taketh away the first that he may establish the second” – his perfect sacrifice, offered in complete submission, supersedes and therefore replaces all previous sacrifices.

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

“Sacrificed” – justified, set apart in consecration to God, and now experiencing the process of continuing sanctification.

11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

10:11-14 – a contrast between “standeth” and “sat down.” The Levitical priest always stood, because his work was never finished.

12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;

13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

14 For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.

15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

10:15-18 – the two quotation included in these verses are from Jer 3131-34 (already cited in 8:8-12). The new covenant guarantees that sins will be effectively and complete forgiven (v. 17), with the result that no additional sacrifice for sins is needed (v. 18).

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Everybody on earth knows the ways of God, they know them as well as they know their name.

17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
This pertains only to those that accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

21 And having a high priest over the house of God;

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

10:26-31 – that these verses are a warning to person (“some,” v. 25) deserting the Christian assembly is apparent from the Greek word gar (“for”) at the beginning of v. 26. See notes on 6:4-8, where the same spiritual condition is discussed.

“If we sin willfully” – committing the sin of apostasy (see v. 29).

27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
“Judgment and fiery indignation” – see 2 Thess 1:6-9.

Many people say that once you are saved you cannot lose your salvation. There is no place in the Bible that says that, and vv. 26-27, like 6:4-6, make it very clear that you can.

28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

See Deut 32:35-42.

32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazing stock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

“Better and an enduring substance” – such as salvation in Christ and future reward.

35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.

36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

See Rev 22:12.

38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Islam Exposed

Christians and Muslims DO NOT Worship the Same God!

Allah Is and Was Nothing More than a Pagan God!

Many Muslims insist that Islam and Christianity worship the same God. In fact, even George W. Bush, a professed “Christian,” said the same thing to ABC news correspondent, Charles Gibson…

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Charles Gibson, Bush said he believes that both Christians and Muslims worship the same God.

“I think we do. We have different routes of getting to the Almighty,” Bush said.

“But I want you to understand, I want your listeners to understand, I don’t get to get decide who goes to heaven.

The Almighty God decides who goes to heaven and I am on my personal walk,” he said.-ABC News, October 26, 2004.

George Bush is pure evil. If there was contest to see who was the most evil out of all the government officials of the United States since 1776, at this time, Bush has them all beat by and landslide, except for one.

Hillary is picking up speed and if she is elected in 2016 she’ll make Bush look like a saint.

Bush is incorrect about the Christian and Muslims worshiping the same God, we worship “THE” God, Jesus Christ. Bush and the Muslims worship “a” god, Allah.

Bush is also wrong on who decides who goes to heaven or hell. God does not want anyone going to hell, but He doesn’t decide. God has given us the choice.

“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (Eze 33:11).

Treat others righteously and worship Jesus and you will spend eternity in heaven with Him.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Matt 22:37-40).

Otherwise you go to hell with the devil. You we cannot be evil and worship Jesus and go to heaven, that’s not how it works.

“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the table of devils” (1 Cor 10:21).

I would not say Obama is evil like Bush; he’s evil because he’s a Muslim. And Obama is not a leader, he’s a pawn.

Allah is a fictitious, fabricated, false god from the 9th century…the moon god (which you will see later in this article).
Below is proof that Muslims do not worship the same God as we do – “we” meaning myself and my fellow Christians. If you are not a Christian, feel free to climb aboard.

The Koran, the Islam Bible, states:

…believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector (The Women, 4.171).

Clearly, the Koran (written about 600 A.D.) Denies the Son of God, Jesus Christ!The reason why Allah doesn’t have a son is because he isn’t real. And there is no one that can do what God did, e.g., become His own Son and die and live again.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Words was with God, and the Word was God.

And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us…” (Jn 1:1, 14).

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit…” (1 Tim 3:16).

The Koran teaches that God has no Son, but Jesus says otherwise:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have ever lasting life” (Jn 3:16).

As I had noted above, God has given us the right to choose where we will spend eternity.

Muslims and anyone that denies Jesus Christ is declared a liar:

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son” (1 Jn 2:22).

Clearly, the Koran and the Bible are completely incompatible. The Koran is filled with demonic lies! There is no common ground; you either believe the Bible or the Koran.

Muslims Deny Jesus’ Deity, Crucifixion, and Resurrection!

At Navedz.com at the very top of the page it reads:

“There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger.”

That’s not what the apostle John said:

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created (Rev 4:11).

Aside from Islam denying Jesus being God’s Son, they also say He was not crucified.

And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure (Koran, Surah 4:157, Women).

Islam Originates in Pagan Moon Worship

ALLAH – the Moon God
The Archaeology of the Middle East
The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of “Allah.”

The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles.
The issue is thus one of continuity. Was “Allah” the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre-Islamic times?

The Muslim’s claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if “Allah” is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion.

Thus we should all become Muslims.

But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre-Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted.

Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archaeology.

We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals.
This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah.

The symbol to the left is used extensively throughout the Islamic world. Just as Catholicism’s origins can be traced back to the pagan Babylon religion, so can Islam be traced back to the pagan moon worship of the Assyrians and Babylonians.

Who can deny the paramount influence of the moon in a Muslim’s life? In Islam, the moon is considered the holiest astronomical object, and the moon is the guiding light of all Islamic rituals and festivals.

Crescent moons and stars are the symbolic sign in the national flags of many Muslim countries, and it is present over the Mosques, in the Muslim graveyard, etc. Muslims do not, and never did, follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They worship a pagan false god.

“Although the moon has not had great prominence in the history of religion, the worship of it has been known since earliest recorded time—in the oldest literatures of Egypt, Babylonia, India, and China—and still exists today in various parts of the world, particularly among certain African and Native American groups. 

Moon worship is founded on the belief that the phases of the moon and the growth and decline of plant, animal, and human life are related.

In some societies food was laid out at night to absorb the rays of the moon, which were thought to have power to cure disease and prolong life.

Among the Baganda of central Africa it was customary for a mother to bathe her newborn child by the light of the first full moon.

The moon was frequently equated with wisdom and justice, as in the worship of the Egyptian god Thoth and the Mesopotamian god Sin.

In general, however, the moon has been the basis for many amorous legends and some superstitions (madmen were once considered to be moonstruck, hence the term lunatic) and is particularly important in the practice of astrology.

Many ancient peoples regarded the Moon as the chief of the two luminaries. “The sun was of smaller importance than the moon in the eyes of the Babylonian astrologers.”

The Assyrians and the Chaldeans referred to the time of the Moon-god as the oldest period in the memory of the people: before other planetary gods came to dominate the world ages, the Moon was the supreme deity.

Astrology

Identification of the Gods and Goddesses with heavenly bodies — planets and stars, besides Sun and Moon — and to assigning the seats of all the deities in the Heavens is found in Assyro-Babylonian religion.

The personification of the two great luminaries — the Sun and the Moon — was the first step in the unfolding of this system, and this was followed by placing the other deities where Shamash and Sin had their seats.

This process, which reached its culmination in the post-Hammurabic period, led to identifying the Planet Venus with Ishtar, Jupiter with Marduk, Mars with Nergal, Mercury with Nabu, and Saturn with Ninurta.

All the Gods, Demons and Spirits had their places assigned to them in the Heavens, and facts, including such as fell within the domain of political history, were interpreted in terms of astral theology.

So completely did this system in the course of time sway men’s minds that the Cults and Sects, from being an expression of animistic beliefs, took on the color derived from the “astral” interpretation of occurrences and doctrines.

It left its trace in incantations, omens and hymns, and it gave birth to astronomy, which was assiduously cultivated because a knowledge of the heavens was the very foundation of the system of belief unfolded by the priests of Babylonia and Assyria.

Such references are found in the inscriptions of Sargon II (ca. -720) and Nabonidus (ca. -550). The Babylonian Sin—the Moon—was a very ancient deity: Mount Sinai owes its name to Sin.

Assyrian art reflects this moon influence far more strikingly than that of Panammu I. The figure of himself which he caused to be carved in relief on the left side of the palace-inscription is in the Assyrian style, and so too is another of his reliefs from Zenjirli.

On the latter Bar-rekub is represented seated upon his throne with eunuch and scribe in attendance, while in the field

is the emblem of full moon and crescent, here ascribed to “Ba`al of Harran”, the famous center of moon-worship in Northern Mesopotamia.”

Many do not know this, but the Catholics worship the sun, which will look at tomorrow.

The Word of God forbids any type of moon worship…

“And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven” (Deut 4:19).

Allah-The Moon God

The Archeology of The Middle East

The religion of Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of “Allah.” The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets, and apostles.

The issue is thus one of continuity. Was “Allah” the biblical God or a pagan god in Arabia during pre-Islamic times?

The Muslim’s claim of continuity is essential to their attempt to convert Jews and Christians for if “Allah” is part of the flow of divine revelation in Scripture, then it is the next step in biblical religion.

Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East.
From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most wide-spread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god.

In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs.

As demonstrated by Sjoberg and Hall, the ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names.

The most popular names were Nanna, Suen and Asimbabbar.

His symbol was the crescent moon.

Given the amount of artifacts concerning the worship of this Moon-god, it is clear that this was the dominant religion in Sumeria.

The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia.

Thus we should all become Muslims. But, on the other hand, if Allah was a pre Islamic pagan deity, then its core claim is refuted. Religious claims often fall before the results of hard sciences such as archaeology.

We can endlessly speculate about the past or go and dig it up and see what the evidence reveals. This is the only way to find out the truth concerning the origins of Allah.

As we shall see, the hard evidence demonstrates that the god Allah was a pagan deity. In fact, he was the Moon-god who was married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters.

The cult of the Moon-god was the most popular religion throughout ancient Mesopotamia. The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-god. As Prof. Potts pointed out,

“Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites.”

In ancient Syria and Canna, the Moon-god Sin was usually represented by the moon in its crescent phase. At times the full moon was placed inside the crescent moon to emphasize all the phases of the moon.

The sun-goddess was the wife of Sin and the stars were their daughters. For example, Istar was a daughter of Sin. Sacrifices to the Moon-god are described in the Pas Shamra texts.

In the Ugaritic texts, the Moon-god was sometimes called Kusuh.

In Persia, as well as in Egypt, the Moon-god is depicted on wall murals and on the heads of statues. He was the Judge of men and gods.

The Old Testament constantly rebuked the worship of the Moon-god (see Deut. 4:19;17:3; II Kgs. 21:3,5; 23:5; Jer. 8:2; 19:13; Zeph. 1:5, etc.).

The Assyrians, Babylonians, and the Akkadians took the word Suen and transformed it into the word Sin as their favorite name for the Moon-God.
As Prof. Potts pointed out, “Sin is a name essentially Sumerian in origin which had been borrowed by the Semites. “

Sin (mythology)

Impression of the cylinder seal of Ḫašḫamer, ensi (high priest) of Sin at Iškun-Sin ca. 2100 BC.

The seated figure is probably king Ur-Nammu, bestowing the governorship on Ḫašḫamer, who is led before him by a lamma (protective goddess).

Sin/Nanna himself is present in the form of a crescent.

When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually the cult of the Moon-god.

As a matter of fact, everywhere in the ancient world, the symbol of the crescent moon can be found on seal impressions, steles, pottery, amulets, clay tablets, cylinders, weights, earrings, necklaces, wal murals, etc.

In Tell-el-Obeid, a copper calf was found with a crescent moon on its forehead. An idol with the body of a bull and the head of man has a crescent moon inlaid on its forehead with shells.

In Ur, the Stela of Ur-Nammu has the crescent symbol placed at the top of the register of gods because the Moon-god was the head of the gods. Even bread was baked in the form of a crescent as an act of devotion to the Moon-god.

The Ur of the Chaldees was so devoted to the Moon-god that it was sometimes called Nannar in tablets from that time period.

A temple of the Moon-god has been excavated in Ur by Sir Leonard Woolley. He dug up many examples of moon worship in Ur and these are displayed in the British Museum to this day.

Harran was likewise noted for its devotion to the Moon-god. In the 1950’s a major temple to the Moon-god was excavated at Hazer in Palestine.

Two idols of the moon god were found. Each was a stature of a man sitting upon a throne with a crescent moon carved on his chest.

The accompanying inscriptions make it clear that these were idols of the Moon-god. Several smaller statues were also found which were identified by their inscriptions as the “daughters” of the Moon-god. What about Arabia? As pointed out by Prof. Coon,

“Muslims are notoriously loath to preserve traditions of earlier paganism and like to garble what pre-Islamic history they permit to survive in anachronistic terms.”

“There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger.”
June 6, 2011 Islam, Picture Perfects

la-ilaha-illallah-muhammadur-rasullullah

“La Ilaha Illallah Muhammadur Rasullullah”

None is worthy of worship, obedience, adoration, adulation, prostration, supplication except Allah; and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.

During the 19th century, Amaud, Halevy and Glaser went to Southern Arabia and dug up thousands of Sabean, Minaean, and Qatabanian inscriptions which were subsequently translated.

In the 1940’s, the archeologists G. Caton Thompson and Carleton S. Coon made some amazing discoveries in Arabia. During the 1950’s, Wendell Phillips, W.F. Albright, Richard Bower and others excavated sites at Qataban, Timna, and Marib (the ancient capital of Sheba).

Thousands of inscriptions from walls and rocks in Northern Arabia have also been collected. Reliefs and votive bowls used in worship of the “daughters of Allah” have also been discovered.

The three daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat are sometimes depicted together with Allah the Moon-god represented by a crescent moon above them.

The archeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion of Arabia was the cult of the Moon-god.

In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated,

“South Arabia’s stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations.”

Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god’s name “Sin” is a part of such Arabic words as “Sinai,” the “wilderness of Sin,” etc.

When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods.

While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god. This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism.

In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. 

The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists.

The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrates that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad’s day and was still the dominant cult.

According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al-ilah, i.e. “the deity,” meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out,

“The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.” 

The Moon-god was called al-ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad’s father and uncle had Allah as part of their names.

The fact that they were given such names by their pagan parents proves that Allah was the title for the Moon-god even in Muhammad’s day. Prof. Coon goes on to say,

“Similarly, under Mohammed’s tutelage, the relatively anonymous Ilah became Al-Ilah, The God, or Allah, the Supreme Being.”

This fact answers the questions,

“Why is Allah never defined in the Qur’an? Why did Muhammad assume that the pagan Arabs already knew who Allah was?”

Muhammad was raised in the religion of the Moon-god Allah. But he went one step further than his fellow pagan Arabs.

While they believed that Allah, i.e. the Moon-god, was the greatest of all gods and the supreme deity in a pantheon of deities, Muhammad decided that Allah was not only the greatest god but the only god. In effect he said,

“Look, you already believe that the Moon-god Allah is the greatest of all gods. All I want you to do is to accept that the idea that he is the only god. I am not taking away the Allah you already worship. I am only taking away his wife and his daughters and all the other gods.”

This is seen from the fact that the first point of the Muslim creed is not, “Allah is great” but “Allah is the greatest,” i.e., he is the greatest among the gods.

Why would Muhammad say that Allah is the “greatest” except in a polytheistic context? 

The English word sin derives from Old English synn, recorded in use as early as the 9th century. It was an archery term that meant to miss the mark. That’s what we do when we fall short of Gods will.
As far as Sin the moon god he is one and the same as Allah.

The Arabic word is used to contrast the greater from the lesser. That this is true is seen from the fact that the pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshiped.

This “Allah” was the Moon-god according to the archeological evidence. Muhammad thus attempted to have it both ways.

To the pagans, he said that he still believed in the Moon-god Allah. To the Jews and the Christians, he said that Allah was their God too.

But both the Jews and the Christians knew better and that is why they rejected his god Allah as a false god.

Al-Kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans.

They did not worship the God of the Bible but the Moon-god and his daughter’s al-Uzza, al-Lat and Manat.

Dr. Newman concludes his study of the early Christian-Muslim debates by stating,

“Islam proved itself to be…a separate and antagonistic religion which had sprung up from idolatry.”

Islamic scholar Caesar Farah concluded,

“There is no reason, therefore, to accept the idea that Allah passed to the Muslims from the Christians and Jews.”

The Arabs worshipped the Moon-god as a supreme deity. But this was not biblical monotheism. While the Moon-god was greater than all other gods and goddesses, this was still a polytheistic pantheon of deities.

Now that we have the actual idols of the Moon-god, it is no longer possible to avoid the fact that Allah was a pagan god in pre-Islamic times. Is it any wonder then that the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon?

That a crescent moon sits on top of their mosques and minarets? That a crescent moon is found on the flags of Islamic nations? That the Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon in the sky?

Conclusion

The pagan Arabs worshiped the Moon-god Allah by praying toward Mecca several times a day; making a pilgrimage to Mecca; running around the temple of the Moon-god called the Kabah; kissing the black stone; killing an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god; throwing stones at the devil; fasting for the month which begins and ends with the crescent moon; giving alms to the poor, etc.

The Muslim’s claim that Allah is the God of the Bible and that Islam arose from the religion of the prophets and apostles is refuted by solid, overwhelming archaeological evidence. Islam is nothing more than a revival of the ancient Moon-god cult.

It has taken the symbols, the rites, the ceremonies, and even the name of its god from the ancient pagan religion of the Moon-god. As such, it is sheer idolatry and must be rejected by all those who follow the Torah and Gospel.

Clearly, Islam is a Satanic deception that is leading billions of people to Hell.
