Sharia law comes from a combination of sources including the Quran (the Muslim holy book), the Hadith (sayings and conduct of the prophet Muhammad) and fatwas (the rulings of Islamic scholars). The Hadith is a collection of Islamic traditions: the collected traditions, teachings, and stories of the prophet Muhammad, accepted as a source of Islamic doctrine and law second only to the Quran.

The Sharia or Sharia Law is the religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition. It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. Much will be said on this later. For now, know that Sharia Law regulates a Muslim’s entire life in religiously, politically, and socially. There are five categories:

  1. (Fard) a religious duty or an obligatory action: praying five times a day is fard and neglecting a fard will result in a punishment in the hereafter.
  2. (Mustahabb) is commendable or recommended. One definition is “duties recommended, but not essential; fulfillment of which is rewarded, though they may be neglected without punishment.”[1] There are thousands of mustahabb acts, which include a traditional Islamic greeting, “peace be upon you.”
  3. (Jaiz) is that which is allowed or permissible. As a rule, everything that is not prohibited is allowed. (Mubah) is literally permissible; neither forbidden nor commended. Neutral.
  4. (Makruh) means, “detested,” though not haraam (forbidden); something that is disliked or offensive. If a person commits the Makruh, he does not accumulate ithim (negative reward for bad deeds that is tallied on judgment day) but avoiding the Makhruh is rewarded with thawab (reward for good deeds that is tallied on (judgment day).
  5. (Haram) is that which is sinful, which calls for punishment.

Sharia Law is a legal system based on Islamic theology. An Islamic state is a state that has accepted Islam as its way of ruling its people, specifically Sharia Law. The foundation for politics, laws, religion, is based on the Islamic ruling system khilafah, which makes it a theocracy. Sharia Law not only regulates what citizens do in public but also in the privacy of their home or business, as well as their private beliefs. There is no other legal system that is so intrusive into one’s life, so controlling, and can have a severe impact on one’s wellbeing, it is even life-threatening. Sharia is harsher on women and children but especially women. Sharia is the official basis for state laws in the following countries: Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Yemen.

THE EARLY CHRISTIAN COPYISTS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT THE TEXT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT MISREPRESENTING JESUS_Third Edition The Complete Guide to Bible Translation-2

Shariah, also spelled Sharia, the fundamental religious concept of Islam, namely its law, systematized during the 2nd and 3rd centuries of the Muslim era (8th–9th centuries C.E.).

Total and unqualified submission to the will of Allah (God) is the fundamental tenet of Islam: Islamic law is, therefore, the expression of Allah’s command for Muslim society and, in application, constitutes a system of duties that are incumbent upon a Muslim by virtue of his religious belief. Known as the Shariah (literally, “the path leading to the watering place”), the law constitutes a divinely ordained path of conduct that guides Muslims toward a practical expression of religious conviction in this world and the goal of divine favor in the world to come.

Nature And Significance Of Islamic Law

Muslim jurisprudence, the science of ascertaining the precise terms of the Shariah, is known as fiqh (literally “understanding”). The historical process of the discovery of Allah’s law (see below) was regarded as completed by the end of the 9th century when the law had achieved a definitive formulation in a number of legal manuals written by different jurists. Throughout the medieval period this basic doctrine was elaborated and systematized in a large number of commentaries, and the voluminous literature thus produced constitutes the traditional textual authority of Shariah law.

In classical form, the Sharīʿah differs from Western systems of law in two principal respects. In the first place, the scope of the Sharīʿah is much wider, since it regulates an individual’s relationship not only with one’s neighbours and with the state, which is the limit of most other legal systems but also with God and with one’s own conscience. Ritual practices, such as the daily prayers, almsgiving, fasting, and pilgrimage, are an integral part of Sharīʿah law and usually occupy the first chapters in the legal manuals. The Sharīʿah is also concerned as much with ethical standards as with legal rules, indicating not only what an individual is entitled or bound to do in law but also what one ought, in conscience, to do or refrain from doing. Accordingly, certain acts are classified as praiseworthy (mandūb), which means that their performance brings divine favour and their omission divine disfavour, and others as blameworthy (makrūh), which means that omission brings divine favor and commission divine disfavor; but in neither case is there any legal sanction of punishment or reward, nullity or validity. The Shariah is not merely a system of law, but a comprehensive code of behavior that embraces both private and public activities.

The second major distinction between the Sharīʿah and Western legal systems is the result of the Islamic concept of law as the expression of the divine will. With the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632, communication of the divine will to human beings ceased so that the terms of the divine revelation were henceforth fixed and immutable. When, therefore, the process of interpretation and expansion of this source material was held to be complete with the crystallization of the doctrine in the medieval legal manuals, Shariah law became a rigid and static system. Unlike secular legal systems that grow out of society and change with the changing circumstances of society, Shariah law was imposed upon society from above. In Islamic jurisprudence, it is not society that molds and fashions the law but the law that precedes and controls society.[2]

The Spread of Islam

As we are well aware, the spread of Islam is nothing new. It had conquered many lands by the sword for many centuries, forcing conversions. However, the way Islam is spreading has changed. Moreover, there are different philosophies among the radical Islamic groups on how to take over the world, creating a worldwide caliphate. For example, “Al-Qaeda seeks to incite a global jihad (holy war) to overthrow regimes with predominantly Arab or Muslim populations that al-Qaeda considers corrupt and anti-Islamic. It wants to replace these regimes with a single Muslim nation or empire strictly governed according to sharia (Islamic law). Al-Qaeda sees the United States and other Western countries as blocking this goal because they are allied with many of the countries al-Qaeda considers corrupt.”[3] There is more to it than what this encyclopedia offers. Al-Qaeda seeks to take over the West as well. It uses the Western liberal progressive mentality against itself. For example, Al-Qaeda knows that in the United Kingdom families are very small if at because women are planning careers, not families (usually one child per family). Muslims, on the other hand, have very large families, having six children or more. You do the math because they can take the majority of the country by simply procreating.

Thus, Muslims have poured in Canada, Australia, German, France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and many other European countries because these countries want to show how they do not have Islamophobia as the United States does. Well, recent terrorist attacks still have not woke them up to their stupidity. These countries care more about their image on the world scene and political correctness than they do their own citizens. Obama was working very hard to bring in hundreds of thousands of refugees from Islamic terrorist hotbeds, while at the same time we have American veterans homeless living on the streets. Hillary would have followed in Obama’s footsteps. For her, if the person is alive and can vote that is all she cares about, for she is all about identity politics. President Trump is about protecting America, so he has been pursuing extreme vetting for those coming from Islamic countries that deal with radicals. However, he has to battle the liberal progressive media, liberal Hollywood, the liberal social media, and liberal online news outlets, as well as the simple-minded from the Republican party.

ISIS, on the other hand, believes that it can usher in the Islamic version of Armageddon by its terrorist activity, taking countries because Allah is backing them. ISIL or ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), or Islamic State, (IS) is a Sunni jihadist militant group. In Arabic, it is often called “Daesh.” It operates in Libya, Nigeria, Syria, and Iraq (Although it is close to being kicked out of Iraq). Now, let us consider the way that Islam is spreading into other countries, including the United States. Their process of infiltrating a country is like what we have always thought about with Russia from the 1980s. Making yourself look like everyone else, as you work your way into vital areas of the society.

The Period of Growth

When Muslims first arrive at a new country or are early in their growing process, they stay under the radar. They do not seek anything by demand. They just go along to get along at first. They get jobs and educate themselves just like every other group: students, factory workers, waiters, teachers, professors, doctors, and even politicians. They leave you with the likable impression that they are no different than the host populations.

REASONING FROM THE SCRIPTURES APOLOGETICS CONVERSATION EVANGELISM THE EVANGELISM HANDBOOK

The Period of Seeking Cultural Acceptance

When Muslims have grown to a certain number, they start to seek cultural acceptance. They do not do this dogmatically because they are still not trying to raise any red flags. They want the communities where they are growing to think nothing of a mask on the corner, a Muslim man walking down the street with a square or rectangular headscarf or a skullcap or seeing a Muslim woman out in her Hijab[4] for example. At this stage, they will speak out against radical Islam, saying they are for interfaith. This is called “Taqiyya,” which is an Islamic juridical term whose shifting meaning relates to when a Muslim is allowed, under Sharia law, to lie to infidels (unbelievers), to further Islamic growth or the Islamic cause. At this stage, Muslims are softly trying to convince their new host country how great Sharia Law is.

At this stage, they are not seeking to implement or live by Sharia Law, just to get out the popular message of how great it is. In America (CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC) like the United Kingdom (BBC, Sky News) and elsewhere, the liberal news media have served as an apologist for Islam. The news media presents them as the religion of peace regardless of how many terrorist attacks take place. The news will not use the terms radical Islam; they will hold off calling an Islamic terrorist attack just that until there is any other alternative. They will give less airtime to Islam attacks to the rare attacks by white men of any other segment of society. The liberal politics will bend over backward to aid and abet Islam in their messaging as apologists while condemning the victims of Judaism and Christianity.

The Period of Subversion

The Muslims will congregate together, growing communities within communities, like Dearborn, Michigan (population of 103,000, with 45% being Muslim) and Columbus, Ohio (55,000+ Somali Muslims). In 2012 in Columbus, Ohio, there were hundreds of Somali refugees, who were maced by the police? The Somali refugees demanded subsidized housing then rioted. Again, we are bringing in Muslims from radical Islamic countries while tens of thousands of United States veterans live on the streets. Here are some cities in America with huge Muslim communities, listed from the biggest population to the least:

#1 Detroit, Michigan

#2 Washington, D.C.

#3 Cedar Rapids, Iowa

#4 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

#5 New York, New York

#6 Atlanta, Georgia

#7 Peoria, Illinois

#8 San Francisco, California

#9 Houston, Texas

#10 Chicago, Illinois

#11 Cleveland, Ohio

#12 Columbus, Georgia

#13 Toledo, Ohio

#14 Boston, Massachusetts

#15 Lansing, Michigan

#16 Los Angeles, CA

#17 Buffalo, New York

#18 New Orleans, Louisiana

#19 Albany, Georgia

#20 Columbia, Missouri

#21 Nashville, Tennessee

#22 Dallas, Texas

#23 South Bend, Indiana

#24 Grand Rapids, Michigan

#25 Hattiesburg, Mississippi

#26 St. Louis, Missouri

#27 Knoxville, Tennessee

#28 Shreveport, Louisiana

#29 Lincoln, Nebraska

#30 Anchorage, Alaska

These small circumstances pale in comparison to Canada, Australia, and European countries. Once the Muslims reach this level of penetration, they are now demanding that they are recognized not as Americans but separate from America but in America. They now openly express that they want Sharia Law to be the legal system to which Muslims are judged, and eventually even the host country will be judged by Sharia. An analogy would be that American Muslims were formerly in the closet about their desires to have Sharia Law be enforced in the United States. Well, they have come out of the closet on that subject. They now form organizations that lobby the government, go on television shows as apologists, get schoolbooks that promote Islam but present Judaism and Christianity in a bad light. Anyone that speaks out against these things, they are labeled as being an Islamophobe and are subject to being sued by Islamic lawyers. Muslims join our military, take political offices, governmental jobs, and have religious leaders within the military, Imams. While Christians and Jews are not permitted to carry out any religious practices in schools (separation of church and state), Muslims are being given permission to pray towards Mecca. The United States is entering this level of trouble with our Islamic communities. Canada, Australia, The United Kingdom, and other European countries are in the next period.

The Period of Battle (Jihad)

When the Muslim population reaches a certain level, serious voting power in their host country, they now demand that Sharia Law be put on the same level as a legal system as the country in which they reside. They will lobby, they will protest violently, they will get minor laws passed that favor Islam, and they will commit Jihad. The first stage is to get Sharia Law on the books as part of the legal system and eventually to supplant the legal system of the host country.

Sharia Law in America

The United States of America is in The Period of Subversion, where the Muslims will congregate together, growing communities within communities, like Dearborn, Michigan. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization whose stated mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” Yes, well, that used to be true, it is now a very huge law firm, which serves as a propaganda tool for the left’s liberal, progressive agenda. It is also now a propaganda tool for Islam. Google ACLU and Sharia Law and you will get articles like, Nothing to Fear: Debunking the Mythical “Sharia Threat” to Our Judicial System.[5] The ACLU writes in part, “Across the country, state legislators are considering proposed laws that would limit the ability of courts to adjudicate lawsuits brought by Muslims. Proponents of these measures argue that they are necessary because so-called ‘Sharia law’ is somehow taking over our courts. These claims are, simply put, wrong. They are based both on misinformation and a misunderstanding of how our judicial system works. There is no evidence that Islamic law is encroaching on our courts.” Another one is Bans on Sharia and International Law | American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU writes in part, “In a disturbing trend, anti-Muslim bigotry has recently crept into state legislatures around the country. Several states have passed or attempted to pass laws designed to prevent courts from applying Islamic or “Sharia” law, as well as “foreign” or ‘international law.’ Some, such as a constitutional amendment passed in Oklahoma, mention Sharia specifically, in addition to international law.  Others only mention the foreign or international law. Whatever the specific terminology, all of these attempts raise serious red flags. Efforts to single out Muslims and to advance the ugly idea that anything Islamic is un-American are unjust and discriminatory and should be rejected. Laws that single out Sharia violate the First Amendment by treating one belief system as suspect.”

Yes, it is true that cases on Sharia Law are not flooding the courts. However, this is called a logical fallacy. Straw Man Argument: A subtype of the red herring, this fallacy includes any lame attempt to “prove” an argument by overstating, exaggerating, or over-simplifying the arguments of the opposing side. Such an approach is building a straw man argument. If you were to go to the above ACLU article, you would find that they make it seem or give the impression that the conservatives are saying that cases concerning Sharia Law are overtaking our courts, and doing so with a bigot Islamophobic mentality. This is setting up the Straw Man Argument, exaggerating, so they can then disprove something that no one said or suggested in the first place. The conservatives are merely taking precautions based on Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. They want to make sure that we judge Americans on our Constitution, our federal and state legal system, as well as the precedence set by the cases in our higher courts. In other words, they simply want American laws for Americans.

There are some court cases where states are trying to pass legislation to prevent anyone from allowing Sharia Law to be considered in our legal system. However, it is only a precautionary basis based on what has been seen in other countries. It does not hinder Muslims from fair and impartial legal services in any way. It just, for example, makes it so, when a Muslim Father kills his daughter in an honor killing, he cannot use Sharia Law and Islamic culture as a defense. It is the ACLU and the Muslim Brotherhood, who are working to stall these bills from becoming laws. They do so by saying the bills are grounded in Islamophobia. Other organizations are pushing Islamic agenda, some of which are suspected of having terrorist ties are just like the Muslim Brotherhood above. These are the Council on American–Islamic Relations, Islamic Society of North America, Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim Students’ Association, as we as many others.

Here is the greatest irony that one will find in the left’s liberal, progressive worldview. The left will fight against wife beating in America, the killing of homosexuals in America, the cutting of a little girl’s clitoris, as well as seeking to protect the rights of women, among many other things. However, because they are pro-Islam and antichristian a Jew, they will not speak out about these atrocities in Islamic countries. In fact, they will downplay it or ignore it in conversations. Pakistan just passed a law on how to beat your wife. You heard me correctly, not a low on not beating your wife, but a how to law on beating your wife. Find one liberal news outlet that is speaking out against this. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born Dutch-American activist, feminist, author, and former Dutch politician. She actively opposes honor violence, child marriage, and female genital mutilation. Ayaan Hirsi Ali spoke before Congress and made some very profound observations. ‘The liberal progressive left will fight for the pay gap for women, abortion access, and workplace discrimination here in America. However, the liberal progressive left is silent on honor killings, child marriages, polygamy, sex slavery, or female genital mutilation.’ The Southern Poverty Law Center actually will list persons such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz as persons carrying out hate speech against Islam. Maajid Nawaz is a counter-extremism expert and Quilliam founder, and he educates us about the importance of the fight against radical Islamist ideology. Yes, the irony runs deep on the liberal progressive left.

What the left does not tell us is the number of the radical Islamic problem, not their there are levels. You have the radical Islamist that carries out violence, and then you have fundamentalist Islamists that support such activity. Some things that should concern us a great deal, such as a number of publicly funded schools here in America, who would deny Christian and Jewish children the right to pray over their food, are serving Halal food to the Islamic children. You might ask, what is Halal food, and why is that wrong? Halal food describes meat from animals that have been slaughtered in the ritual way prescribed by Islamic law. It is a slippery slope. These public schools are allowing Muslim students hold Islamic prayers towards Mecca. In 2014, the “Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado [had] a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” lead the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words ‘under God’ with ‘under Allah.’”[6] “A school in New York state apologizes after an uproar was caused by students reciting the US Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic.”[7]

The news headlines today, June 26, 2017, are Donald Trump breaks with 20-year tradition and abandons Ramadan (telegraph.co.uk), Donald Trump abandons traditional White House Ramadan (theguardian.com › US News), Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House (washingtonpost.com), and No Ramadan celebration at White House, though Trump said during campaign he was open to it (abcnews.go.com), to mention just a few. It was in 1996 that Bill Clinton started the first White House Ramadan dinner to end the Month of Ramadan, wherein all who attended raised their glasses and said “Allahu Akbar!” declaring, “Allah is Great.”

In 2000, the Republican National Convention literally opened the convention by saying a Muslim prayer to Allah. In 2007, Keith Ellison, who is a Muslim, was sworn into US Congressman with a Quran instead of the Bible. Ellison was a former Nation of Islam (very radical group) spokesperson, became the second highest leader of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2017. In 2009, a Christian US soldier serving in Afghanistan received a shipment of Bibles in two languages. The Army burned the Bible instead of simply returning them to the church. However, in 2010, a pastor in Florida, Terry Jones, said he was going to burn one copy of the Quran publicly. The commander of the US military in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, spoke out and objected to his burning the Quran. The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also denounced his plan, calling it “disgraceful.”

Judge Joseph Charles Jr. of New Jersey, in 2010, denied a Muslim woman’s request for a permanent restraining against her husband who was raping her, made the following comment,

This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief [Sharia Law] that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices [Sharia Law] and it was something that was not prohibited.

This list could be far longer, but it is enough to see where we in the United States are heading, which is where Canada, the UK, and the rest of Europe have already gone. We will end with the fact that American businesses in the United States are donating a percentage of their money to Islamic organizations that end up going to support the growth of Sharia Law around the world, as well as to support groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and to jihadi terrorist groups like Hezbollah. Why would American financial institutions give their money to Islamic organizations that carry out such atrocious actions? They do so in order to attract Middle Easter clients as customers.

Sharia Law in Canada

Sharia Law in Canada is about 10-20 years ahead of the United States, as far as making inroads into the country. For many years, the Canadian government has recognized Shariah Law for its Muslim community. The Canadian government actually sends welfare checks to Muslim men who have multiple wives. The Muslims have long tried to get Canada to set aside Canadian law and have Sharia Law be the law of the land for Muslims. While the Premier of Ontario eventually shut that down after lengthy debates, the municipal level is quite another story. The Muslims have a great success in getting Sharia Law recognized at the local levels. We are disgusted by what we learn in the July 25, 2011 article titled, Valley Park Middle School or Valley Park Muslim School? “This school is allowing children to skip class so that they can pray during school hours in a secular public school system, all the while instilling the misconceived notion that menstruating girls are somehow unclean and should be pushed to the back of the figurative bus, which in this case is represented by the cafeteria turned makeshift mosque.”[8] This has become a common practice at many schools in Canada today, who also serve Halal food that has been sacrificed to Allah in their cafeterias. There is nothing provided for the Christian children, nor is kosher food served to Jewish children.

The municipal government of Edmonton ruled that men cannot swim at the public pool during certain hours of the week, to be in compliance with Sharia Law while Muslim women swim. The municipal government of Huntingdon is financing Islam as it built a mosque, a Halal slaughterhouse, and gave a gave a one-year property tax break so as to attract more Muslim residents. Sixty-two percent of the Muslims in Ottawa prefer to live under Sharia Law. The percentage is likely higher consider that Muslims who said no to Sharia Law is able to lie to the infidels, Taqiyya. In 2015, when Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister (identifies with Islam because they are allegedly more peaceful than Christians are), the increase of Muslim refugees into Canada was dramatically increased. Justin Trudeau said, “After meeting thousands of new Syrian refugees, listening to their stories and learning more about the Muslim faith, I have learned to love Islam and the people of Islam. Islam promotes peace, not violence and is, in fact, more peaceful than Christianity. I feel like this is the religion I belong with, and I should identify as.”[9] In a video that shows Canadian PM Trudeau praying with Muslims at the mosque, he is seen wearing traditional Islamic clothing as he delivers a speech that he begins with the Muslim greeting. The projected growth of the Muslim population in Canada is triple over the next two decades. Considering that, PM Trudeau appointed Ahmed Hussen, a Muslim, as his Minister of Immigration, it will likely exceed that.

“The Canadian parliament has passed a landmark anti-Islamophobia and religious discrimination motion that calls on politicians to condemn anti-Islamic behavior and rhetoric. [It] will limit free speech in the country and single out Islam for special treatment.” In many countries, it is a crime; you can go to jail for saying anything against Islam because it is deemed hate speech. If I lived in those Western countries, I could be jailed for penning this book. If I lived in Islamic countries, I would be stoned to death for writing this book.

Sharia Law in the UK

In the last four months, the United Kingdom has suffered four terrorist attacks in four months (the Westminster attack, the Manchester attack, the London Bridge attack, and the fourth at a Mosque). The first three were jihadist attacks. The security services in the United Kingdom only have the capacity to monitor 3,000 suspected terrorists at one time. The problem, there are over 23,000 suspected terrorists, who are jihadists that are ready to attack at any moment, according to the Prime Minister. Now, picture the support system of Islamists (ideologically allied), who applaud, support, and even finance the jihadists. The number of these ideologically allied Islamists are likely to triple that of the jihadists, about 70,000 strong. This is out of the 4 million Muslims in the United Kingdom, a sovereign state that only has 65 million in population. This is the most noted European area in the world, not some Islamic country like Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and so on.

Sharia Law in the UK is very much in The Period of Battle (Jihad) stage. The Muslim population has reached a certain level, serious voting power in the United Kingdom. They now demand that Sharia Law be put on the same level as a legal system as the law of the United Kingdom. This has already been taking place over the past ten years. They have lobbied, they have protested violently, they have gotten minor laws passed that favor Islam, and they have committed Jihad. The first stage is to get Sharia Law on the books as part of the legal system is going as planned and they will want to supplant the legal system of the United Kingdom eventually. Even with all of this, it does not cause the liberal progressive of the United Kingdom to rethink its immigration policy.

In fact, they would bring in more Muslims from war-stricken Islamic countries like Syria. If they believe this somehow endears them to the Islamists, it is just one more mistaken notion on their part. Take the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. The Islamist who blew himself up with a bomb killing 22 children and mothers did not stop to protect and liberal progressive politician’s children. All they see is non-Muslims, who need to be converted through fear or slaughtered in the name of Allah. In fact, they are of the warrior mentality and do not see caving as a sign of endearment or strength but rather a sign of weakness. They literally respect the conservatives who see this as a war more than they respect the liberal progressive left.

Muslim Imams (religious leaders of the mosque) now outnumber the Christian pastors in the United Kingdom. The business of converting empty churches into Mosques is a big business. It was just in 2008 when the government of the United Kingdom accepted the first Sharia Law court. Moreover, the head of Church of England, Archbishop of Canterbury, said that accepting aspects of the Shariah Law into the UK was “unavoidable.” Today, there are now over one hundred Sharia Law courts across the United Kingdom. While their power is limited to a degree, they still have been issuing rulings that are at odds with the law of Britain.

For the past six years, the Muslims in Britain have been demanding and working to supplant the British Law with the Sharia Law. At first, this will affect, only the towns populated by Muslims, such as

  • London (Muslims are 607,000 out of 8,787,000),
  • Birmingham (Muslims are 47,000 out of 212,000),
  • Bradford (Muslims are 129,000 out of 528,000),
  • Derby (Muslims are 20,000 out of 248,000),
  • Dewsbury (Muslims are 32,000 out of 63,000),
  • Leeds (Muslims are 46,000 out of 751,000),
  • Leicester (Muslims are 66,000 out of 329,000),
  • Liverpool (Muslims are 25,000 out of 478,000), and

Christian Apologetics and Evangelism

King James BibleTHE KING JAMES BIBLE: Do You Know the King James Version?

The King James Bible was originally published in 1611. Some have estimated that the number of copies of the King James Version that have been produced in print worldwide is over one billion! There is little doubt that the King James Version is a literary masterpiece, which this author has and will appreciate and value for its unparalleled beauty of expression. This book is in no way trying to take away from what the King James Version has accomplished. The King James Version is a book to be commended for all that it has accomplished. For four centuries, when English-speaking people spoke of “the Bible,” they meant the King James Version. The question that begs to be asked of those who favor the King James Bible is, Do You Know the King James Version? What do most users of the King James Bible not know about their translation? Whether you are one who favors the King James Version or one who prefers a modern translation, Andrews will answer the questions that have long been asked for centuries about the King James Bible and far more.

On the other side are those who define it as fallible and non-revelatory speech that continues today in the life of the church. Proponents of both camps attempt to claim …

THE CHURCH CURETHE CHURCH CURE: Overcoming Church Problems

In order to overcome and church problems, we must first talk about the different problems of the church. Many of the church problems today stem from the isms: liberalism, humanism, modernism, Christian progressivism, theological liberalism, feminism, higher criticism, and biblical criticism. Moreover, many are simply not a biblically grounded church regardless of how much they claim to be so. The marks of a true Christian church would be like the different lines that make up a church’s fingerprint, a print that cannot belong to any other church. The true Christian church contains their own unique grouping of marks, forming a positive “fingerprint” that cannot belong to any other church. William Lange Craig wrote, “Remember that our faith is not based on emotions, but on the truth, and therefore you must hold on to it.” What truth? Jesus said to the Father in prayer, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17) Are you doing the will of the Father? Is your church doing the will of the Father? – Matthew 7:21-23; 1 John 2:15-17.
