‘It’s About Hating and Killing’: Former Muslim Woman Turned Christian Seeks to Spread Truth About Islam

Walter-compressedA former Muslim woman turned Christian says that she now works to tell others the truth about Islam after she began reading the Koran and was disturbed about its contents and the life of Mohammed.

Mona Walter moved to Sweden from Somalia as a war refugee while a teenager. It was there that she says that she began reading the Koran for the first time, as in Somalia she lived more as a cultural Muslim and wasn’t familiar with the tenets of her religion.

“I didn’t know what I was a part of. I didn’t know who Mohammed was. I didn’t know who Allah was,” Walter told CBN News. “So, when I found out, I was upset. I was sad and I was disappointed.”

She said she learned that Islam is not about peace, but killing the infidel.

“It’s about hating and killing those who disagree with Islam. It’s about conquering,” Walter stated. “Mohammed, he was immoral. He was a bloodthirsty man. He was terrible man, and Muslims can read that in his biography: what he did to Jews, how he raped women, how he killed people. I mean, he killed everyone who didn’t agree with him.”

Walter left Islam and lived as an atheist for a time, until a family member encouraged her to read the Bible. She said that she was impacted by Matthew 5:44, where Jesus taught that men must love their enemies.

“It was very strange for me to ‘love your enemy,’ because in Islam it is ‘kill your enemy.’ ‘Kill your enemy and anyone who refuses Islam,'” Walter stated. “But Jesus Christ was all about love and peace and forgiveness and tolerance, and for some reason, I needed that.”

She soon turned to Christ, and decided to show other Muslim women in Sweden the truth about Islam.

“Sometimes they listen and sometimes they become very upset,” Walter told CBN. “I tell them, ‘You know your husband has a right to beat you if you don’t obey him?’ And they say, ‘No, it does not say that.’ ‘Yes, it does say that.’ I thought if I tell them about Mohammed and about the Koran and about this god of Islam who hates, who kills, … maybe they will have a choice and leave.”

And while she says that she receives death threats for speaking against the Islamic faith, Walter states that she is going to continue to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    This is why Muslims have duped liberals and even some Christians into believing Islam is peaceful and not all Muslims are violent. If all Muslims were violent the world we be at war with all of Islam. Moderate Muslims just means those who are not actively participating as the terrorists. If they all read and believe the Koran then they all believe that they can kill the infidels, and they should establish a worldwide caliphate. This must be believed by the vast majority otherwise the terrorists would be put down by the governments of the Muslim countries, and not be tacitly supported by the population. If the active terrorists were only a small band of criminals it would be easy for the Muslim governments to get rid of them.

    Throw taqiyya into the mix and it becomes extremely difficult to know or trust who is the ever-elusive moderate Muslim.

    • Elie Challita

      Chief, you seem to miss the salient point of the discussion: The majority of Muslims, especially the moderate majority of Muslims, regard Islamic extremists who seek to apply the Koran at its worst and most literal form very similarly to how the majority of Christians regard you.

      • afchief

        Nope, that is a boldface lie. You do NOT speak for other Christians. You do NOT know the Word of God. We Christians live by the New Testament and what I quote from the bible comes from the NT. You have NO understanding of the Word of God. None! Because it is not possible!!!!

        1 Corinthians 2:14 (NASB) But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

        • Elie Challita

          No, but other Christians speak for themselves.
          The majority of Christians in the US disagree with you on the matter of abortion, for example, and on their view of homosexual relationships.
          Hell, even the Christians at Charisma News ended up banning you because of your toxic views and behavior, and they’re a lot closer to your system of belief than most Christians nationwide.

          I’m sure that you will claim that none of them are true Christians, but I would like to remind you that ISIS also claims that all Muslims who do not agree wholeheartedly with them are not true Muslims.

          • afchief

            You are a liar!!!! No one can call themselves a Christian and believe in abortion and homosexuality. Not possible!!!

            You are a liar and serve the father of lies……………..satan!!!!

            There Is No Such Thing As a “Gay” Christian

            By Greg May

            ________________________________________

            In a previous article (“Information Highway: Avenue of False Doctrine”) I voiced my concern over the growing number of websites on the Internet promoting false doctrine. Also increasing in number are gay “Christian” websites.

            There is no such thing as a “gay” Christian.

            Homosexuality is a sin according to God’s Word. It is condemned in both Old and New Testaments. In Old Testament times, people who practiced homosexuality were to be taken outside the walls of the city and stoned to death. It was the rampant promiscuity of this lifestyle that caused God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah:

            And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is Great, and because their sin is very grave…” (Genesis 18:20).

            The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Flood in the time of Noah are examples of the coming judgment upon the world as recorded in the book of Revelation. Just as Noah and his family were put inside the Ark before the Flood, and Lot’s family were sent away before burning sulphur fell on Sodom and Gomorrah, so will God’s people be removed from earth when Jesus appears in the clouds during the Rapture.

            There is a striking similarity between the days of Noah and Lot and the conditions of the world today: The economy was prospering, business was good and the construction industry was flourishing. Violence was widespread and the pursuit of pleasure was the main objective: “If it feels good do it!”

            Homosexuality and immorality were proliferating as well.

            Paul wrote in the New Testament:

            “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet” (Romans 1:26, 27)

            “…and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversions”: Could Paul have been prophesying about AIDS?

            Today our society glamorizes the lifestyle; celebrities are applauded when they “come out of the closet” and others are persecuted when they speak out against the gay lifestyle.

            The late Patrick Heron once wrote, “I would hope that people with opposing views would be tolerant of the Christian position. After all, we are constantly being asked to be tolerant of the gay community.”

            I remember watching on TV news back in the 70s when a member of the gay community pushed a pie in Anita Bryant’s face when she spoke out against gay rights issues in Florida. Today the gay community is bringing lawsuits against people who don’t go along with their agenda.

            Satan is the master of deceit and the father of lies. He has a talent for presenting something that goes against God’s will in a nice gift-wrapped package for people to sample.

            The disco 70s did more to make “being gay okay”’ than anything else. The disco movement which was widely supported by the gay community burst upon the American pop culture scene like an atomic bomb. Now it was the “in thing” to dance at gay clubs because, “They always have the best music” and gay people know how to “party” better than anyone else.

            Two of the most prominent “Disco Queens” – Gloria Gaynor and the late Donna Summer became born-again Christians. In fact, Summer’s career took a nosedive when she confronted her gay audience during a concert telling them, “AIDS is your sin.” But Grace Jones continues to exploit her androgynous look and popularity with the gay community to promote her career; and her father and brother are both ministers.

            Female impersonators are being paraded everywhere and are now featured in mainstream entertainment. Recently, a female impersonator was quoted in the media as being a “drag queen for Jesus” and ABC TV’s Diane Sawyer presented a full-length interview with former Olympic star Bruce Jenner who is changing his sex.

            God loves the sinner but He hates the sin.

            Jesus went to the cross and died for all; anyone can be saved if they call upon the name of the Lord. Mary Magdalene was caught in adultery in which the penalty was death. But Jesus didn’t condemn her – in fact, He pardoned her. It was Mary Magdalene who stayed at the foot of the cross after Jesus’ disciples left.

            In the past, churches shied away from reaching out to the gay community. Today there are ministries that are being offered at many churches to bring men and women out of the lifestyle of sin and darkness and into the light and joy of God’s Word.

            Those who claim homosexuality is not a sin in God’s eyes are blinded by Satan.

            The love that David and Jonathan had for each other in the Bible is often misconstrued by the gay community to suggest they were lovers.

            “I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been

            unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women”

            (2 Samuel 1:26)

            The love that David and Jonathan had was a supernatural and pure love in the form of a godly covenant between them – they were not homosexuals.

            “And they two made a covenant before the Lord” (1 Samuel 23: 18).

            Jonathan loved David beyond the love he had for women and also beyond the love for his father and his own life, just as Christ commanded us to love Him:

            “If any man comes to Me, and does not hate his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.” (Luke 14:26)

            God’s Word makes it unmistakably clear that homosexuals will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven:

            “. . . for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave

            traders and liars and perjurers – and for whatever else is contrary to the

            sound doctrine . . .” (1 Timothy 1:10).

            In these last days we need to be about the Father’s business which is winning souls for Christ. Although the Bible makes it clear homosexuals will have no place in God’s Kingdom, He makes a way for the sinner to be cleansed and washed white as snow by the redemptive Blood of the Lamb that was shed when Jesus was crucified at Calvary.

          • Elie Challita

            Chief, you’re more than welcome to redefine the word Christian to only include those who share your view.
            All I’m saying is that ISIS and other Islamic fundamentalists also redefine the word Muslim to only include those who share their views, and the majority of the world’s Muslim population falls far short of that definition.

            You have a lot more in common with Al Baghdadi than you do with a godless miscreant like me, or with the majority of those who call themselves Christians in the US for that matter.

          • afchief

            Did I not say you are a liar? I sure did!!! And I’ll say it again, YOU ARE A LIAR. Tell me one Christian who believes that homosexuality is not sin?

            Romans 1:18-28 (NASB) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth [a]in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident [b]within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not [c]honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and [d]crawling creatures.

            24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [e]a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [f]forever. Amen.

            26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is [g]unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [h]indecent acts and receiving in [i]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

            28 And just as they did not see fit [j]to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

          • Elie Challita

            Chief, it matters very little that you choose to follow these passages. Other Christians do not. There hundreds of Christian denominations worldwide, each of whom is firmly convinced that they have the right of it. I have seen nothing to convince me that your faith is more genuine or worthy than that of others.

            And my main point still stands: You exclude others from the definition of Christianity because they believe in slightly different things than you, and the majority of them would consider you a lunatic for it.
            The same goes with Islam: ISIS thinks it’s the only true form of Islam, and the majority of Muslims worldwide think they’re out of their minds.

          • afchief

            My point still stands that you are a LIAR!!!! No Christians who follows Jesus and His Word believes in homosexuality or abortion. NONE!!!!

            Show me one!!!!

          • Chrissy Vee

            I am not one. I always thought the great delusion would be aliens or something like that. Now I am beginning to think it’s the “gay is okay” doctrine because there are a lot of churches out there accepting this lie.
            How is Jesus supposed to save these souls from their sins when man has convinced them they can practice them and still go to heaven? It makes me sad.

            So many false teachings and doctrines are destroying churches and thousands of people’s souls. But according to the Word, they are there because of their itching ears.

            I also stand with you and all true God fearing followers of Christ against the murder of babies inside and outside the womb.

            I pray that as the glorious light of Jesus Christ continues to shine in the darkness and reveal the deception, that more people will see and will repent. Blessed be His holy name.

          • afchief

            There is a “great falling away” going on right now. The “wheat and the chaff” are being separated. The bride of Christ is making herself ready by removing the sins of the flesh.

            These so called Churches who are promoting homosexuality as normal are NO churches of Jesus Christ. Period!!!

            1 John 2:19 (NASB) They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.

            They are not part of us!!!

          • Chrissy Vee

            Yes I agree. These churches are apostate. God told us this would happen.

            The Bible also states we are to keep peace with all men.
            ~Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:: ~ Hebrews 12:14
            ~If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. ~ Romans 12:18
            ~A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. ~ Proverbs 15:1

            You hold the truth chief. If they do not hear you, move on. I have found myself at times being easily provoked and losing my witness with antichrists/antichristians on this forum. Sometimes I have to remind myself who I am representing. Other times a brother or sister in Christ admonishes me and sometimes it is Holy Spirit that brings to remembrance who it is I serve. I understand standing up for the faith, but sometimes it is better to hold your tongue. (James 3:5-6, 8)

          • afchief

            Keep looking up!! We are getting close. I feel like I need to keep speaking truths as long as people will listen. I know liberals, homosexuals and atheists cannot see the truth (2 Cor 4:4), but I will keep shouting it from the roof tops as long as I can!!!!

          • Chrissy Vee

          • Keosaengsay Cye Souriyasong

            Everyone is agreed on to be gays are sins, but we will not judge and condemned them to death, that is in between the gays men and God, ours God is merciful, he wasn’t and isn’t the cruelties one like your al ilahs, and ours Jesus is the son of God, he isn’t like mohammed the prophets the rapist that is the difference between Jesus and mohammered.

            Why do you swear so much if you claim to be a Christian and chastise afchief for his behavior? He’s not used vulgarities. You have. I know who I respect more, and it’s not potty mouth.

          • Elie Challita

            I’m not a Christian. I was raised as one, but I’ve been an atheist for years now. I chastise chief not because he offends me, but frankly he’s falling far short of his own standards, while expecting everyone else to live up to them.

          • Guest

            You have no right to tell afchief how to live when you, yourself, do not live godly.

          • Elie Challita

            I have every right to tell afchief what I think of him based on my own values, considering he’s never had a problem making it clear what he thinks of everyone outside his own little bubble.
            Going a step further, I think I have the right to tell someone who professes to be a Good Christian(tm) that he’s falling far short of everything generally accepted as Christianity.

          • Guest

            You have no right, particularly since you’re not a good Christian yourself. You have no authority, nor do you have knowledge or discernment. The things you criticize him for, you have in abundance.

          • Elie Challita

            You’re not listening: I make no claims to being a good Christian, nor do I even want to be one. I’m an atheist. Are you claiming that nobody can criticize someone unless, and only if, they are a better Christian than the other person.

          • Guest

            I am listening to you, but you are failing to understand my point, and it is this: that a non-Christian cannot begin to understand what a Christian should do, nor does he have the right to attack a Christian for his faith and behavior.

          • Elie Challita

            Do you extend that limitation to forbidding Christians from different denominations from judging each other?

          • Guest

            No, because the Bible tells Christians to judge those professing Christ to judge each other to prove if someone is real or a fake. However, an atheist is in no way to judge Christianity since he cannot understand it.

          • Elie Challita

            But different denominations of Christianity often conflict on the proper values, or how to apply them. Does that mean that a Catholic is right when he condemns all Evangelicals?

          • Guest

            It means all Christians have the right to test the works of others who profess to be Christians.

          • Elie Challita

            What about values that are not specific to Christianity? Are Christians liable to any criticism from non Christians?

          • Guest

            Criticism if it is just, yes, but I think you don’t even perceive yourself how your dislike of afchief is BECAUSE he is a Christian, and a bold one at that.

          • Elie Challita

            Not at all, my friend. My family is Christian, as are many of my friends, and I have nothing but love and respect for them.
            I dislike afchief on a personal level because he’s irrational, antagonistic, and a prime example of what ignorance and arrogance together can do. I would dislike him just as much if he were an atheist.

        • ctharmer

          @@eliechallita:disqus @afchief:disqus: I totally get what you are saying & I’m pretty sure that most of us who are Christian even agree with your point…I don’t agree with how you are saying it.

          You are slamming somebody who happens to not agree with you. In your face “because He said so” cannot nor will not work to persuade anybody who has no basis or context to know from where you are arguing. You believe the Bible & as Christians we can take the Bible for granted. (God spoke it; I believe it). The same can be said for those who believe the Quran. Both religions teach that homosexuality is an abomination; but my faith doesn’t direct me to kill the individual.

          There’s many other things we are instructed that are separate from that…1) We are directed to love our enemies, to be patient, & I also seem to remember reading (more than once) about judgement is reserved for God as well as vengeance is his too. So if your standards say Elie Challita is a liar, then my standards say you are a hypocrite…How do you KNOW that Elie doesn’t know the Word? MAYBE that’s why she’s Muslim; not likely, but you don’t know what she does or does not know. In HER context, I can see her point as valid; in MY context, I disagree…

          All I am saying is that values & beliefs that people have are theirs for a reason. EVERYBODY knows their’s is the “right” one & others are “wrong”…At the same time they also need to remember “you catch more flies with honey than vinegar”…or else folks like me won’t be caught or persuaded…I’ll do my own research, my own reading (of all sides) then draw my own conclusions. Oh wait! I already did and still do.

          • afchief

            You are on a Christian website. We believe homosexuality is sin, period. It will not change, PERIOD!!!

            Besides, all it takes is a rational and logical mind to know that two men where NOT made to have sex. It is perverted, deviant and a very dangerous lifestyle.

          • ctharmer

            I’m well aware of which site I’m on; I believe homosexuality is sin; male, female, trans-“its”, whatever…I’m not arguing that…Where did I say homosexuality isn’t a sin? It also says that any sex outside of marriage is wrong; that means fornication, adultery, just thinking about it with someone. It too couldn’t be more plainly stated. It doesn’t say “monogamous-non-marriage” or “committed with fidelity” it says “outside of marriage…period. Two women weren’t made to have sex; it is also deviant. God created adam(life) & eve(bearer of life) as Adam & Eve, not Adam & Adam

          • afchief

            Agree!

          • Elie Challita

            Thank you for the rare example of civility. I should point out a couple of things:
            1- I’m male. I know, mine’s a confusing name.

            2- I grew up as part of Lebanon’s Christian minority, which takes its beliefs very seriously because we’re constantly under siege. I spent 15 years in Catholic school, and my family considers itself very devout. I walked away from that faith eventually, but I think I have as solid of a grounding in the word as anyone who isn’t reading it daily.

            3- Even back when I had my faith, I never considered religious belief by itself a sufficient reason for anything. I will treat certain Islamic groups as dangerous because I know they are armed and antagonistic (remember, I grew up in Hezbollah’s shadow), but I refuse to demonize all Muslims because I might think that they worship the wrong god.

            Similarly, even when I was religious I had no problem with homosexuals living out their lives as they so chose because their choices really didn’t affect anyone but themselves. These days, and after moving to a country where non-heterosexuals aren’t normally treated like the scum of the earth, I honestly with them all the happiness they can get, and I have nothing but contempt for any deity who decides that someone is unworthy of love because of who they love, regardless of anything else they might be as a person.

            And quite frankly any deity which is worshipped by someone as exclusionary, venomous, and self-righteous as the chief here, and who would actively enjoy and encourage such worship, really would belong better in the dustbin of history.

            Again, I thank you for your civility, but I don’t want you to misconstrue my positions, and I think you’re wasting your breath with the chief: He’s already been banned from other Christian communities for his vituperations, and I don’t think it’ll be long before his behavior sees him turn into an involuntary, bitter hermit.

            You have sworn and used other vulgarities, yet you dare to disparage afchief?? Oh, the irony! 🙂

            There is currently a movement to correct the mistranslations of the Arabic Bible, and to properly translate “god” as إله (‘ilāh)and not “allah”.

          • Elie Challita

            Allah is a shorted form of “al ilah”. When putting “al” (which means “the”) in front of an arabic word beginning with the letter i, it is acceptable to concatenate the two words and stress the L instead.

          • Guest

            I know Arab Christians who refuse to say “allah” but rather say “ilah”.

          • Elie Challita

            Up to them, then. No Christian I ever met in Lebanon had any such reservations.

        The majority to which you refer are not true Muslims according to the extremists. The former are Muslim apostates. The latter are jihadists.

        • Elie Challita

          You missed the point of the conversation: By accepting the extremists’s definition of Islam, you validate their claims and exclude the vast majority of Muslims or paint them by association. This would be like judging all Christians based on the Westboro Baptist Church.
          Should I assume that you support the latter just because you claim to be Christian?

    • Camino1

      I have spent time in a Muslim country with marginalized Christians. It was remarkable to hear pastors pray to “Allah” in the name of Jesus! This woman has surely been Westernized. She certainly didn’t get a name like “Mona Walter” in Somalia. I don’t question that she knows Jesus but I do doubt her grasp of the bigger picture. She has become, not Just a Christian, but a political conservative.

          Allah (more properly written as Al Lah) is simply the Arabic word for any god, regardless of religion. It is mostly associated with Islam because the Koran was written in Arabic, but there really is no difference in using the words Allah, God, Dios, Dieu, or Kami. It’s simply a matter of which language you’re speaking.

          • ctharmer

            That is nice to know; thank you for clearing that up. I think most of us just took for granted that Allah was how God was addressed since you don’t hear “prophet” wrote the Quran; you hear him referred to by his name, “Muhammed”. The Hebrew texts refers to God, our Creator by His name as “YHWH” since there are countless other gods.

          • Elie Challita

            I’m sure better minds than mine have made that study before, but it’s interesting to compare the Islamic mindset to the Judaic mindset:
            1- Judaic doctrine had to make “You shall have no other gods before me” a commandment in order to establish the primacy of YHWH. That by itself seems to imply that there were other gods, or at least acknowledge that the Hebrews had to contend with the gods of other tribes and population before dismissing them.

            2- Islamic doctrine, by comparison, establishes right out that no other gods exist and that Allah is the only one. “La Ilaha illa Allah” is the first part of the Shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith and the cornerstone of the religion, and literally means that no other gods exist. Interestingly enough, they still consider Judeo-Christian beliefs to have a solid grounding, and revere Judaic prophets as well as Jesus as great teachers and holy men.

            TL;DR version: Hebrews have to constantly affirm that YHWH comes first and demonstrate his primacy or uniqueness. Muslims assume Allah’s uniqueness, but consider Jews and Christians to have a somewhat valid faith, but an incomplete one.

            By your own post, you have proven that allah is not how one says “god” in Arabic. 🙂

          • Elie Challita

            How so? Arabic is my native language, and I’m pretty sure that every god I’ve ever heard of is referred to as either “al lah” or “ilah”, depending on the sentence’s grammatical structure

          • Guest

            Because you have acknowledged by posting the shahada that “ilah” is how to say “god” in “Arabic”. Look, “baal” means “lord” or “master”, but Christians would never call God “baal” no matter what language they speak. So, too, many Arabic speaking Christians will no longer say “allah”.

          • Elie Challita

            What are you on about? Baal isn’t even part of any spoken languages anymore, but if it were it would be used.
            What is the difference between calling a god Allah, or calling him Dieu, Dios, or Kami?

          • Guest

            Baal was not used and is not used by those who believe in the One true God, just like Arabic Christians are now veering away from calling Ilah “allah”.

          • Elie Challita

            Baal was mostly used in Phoenician and very old Aramaic. I’m not a linguist, but I think it was falling in the disuse even in the latter. Why would anyone use it to refer to a religion which didn’t even exist when the languages it’s a part of were spoken?

          • Guest

            At one point, baal was used to describe a false god. Even though “baal” means “lord” or “master”, no one who worshiped the one true God would refer to Him as “baal”. So, too, will Arabic Christians no longer refer to God as “allah” but rather Yasu.

          • Guest

            It’s actually untrue. “إله (‘ilāh)” is how one says “god” in Arabic, not “allah”. “allah” is the proper name for the moon god, just like “baal” is the proper name for a specific false god.

          • afchief

            If is a false god. It is associated with a “moon god”.

            Islam is straight from the pits of hell!!!

          • Elie Challita

            Chief, what is the word for God in Spanish, French, or Japanese?

          • afchief

            I’m not going to waste my time with you. You are a liar. For the umpteenth time Allah and the Christian God are NOT the same thing!!!

            I am a Christian and I not what Islam is all about. It is EVIL!!!!

          • Elie Challita

            I never said they’re the same god, you dolt. All I said, to the other commenter, is that Allah is quite simply the word by which Arabic speaking Christians refer to the Christian God because that’s literally what the word means in the Arabic language.
            Having grown up as a middle eastern Christian, I used the word Allah the same way as a Spanish christian would use the word Dios.

            What the hell is wrong with you that you start frothing at the mouth before you have a clue what the grown ups are talking about?

          • afchief

            “I don’t know why it’s so surprising, considering that Allah is simply the Arabic word for god. I grew up as part of the Catholic minority in Lebanon, and all our liturgies say Allah simply because that word means “god” in our national language, regardless of religion”

            There is only ONE God and his name is Jesus!!! Allah is a moon god. A false god. An evil god. It is NOT the God of us Christians.

          • Elie Challita

            What do non-English speaking Christians call Jesus?

          • afchief

            God!

          • Elie Challita

            What about Christians who don’t know English? How would a Christian person in South America, who’s never learned English in their life, refer to God?

          • afchief

            What is your point?

          • Elie Challita

            My point, you imbecile, is that the word Allah by itself doesn’t exclusively refer to whatever demon you think the Muslims worship.

            Any Christian speaking Arabic (and there’s quite a few of us, thank you very much) will refer to God as Allah, not because they believe that they worship the same god as Islam, but because that’s what the word itself means.

            But instead of noting the linguistics, like the other poster did, you had to go into one of your trademark frothing frenzies before you had the slightest idea what we were talking about. Now, will you apologize for your childish behavior?

          • afchief

            Let me repeat what Islam is; It is straight from the pits of hell!!! It is evil!!!

          • Elie Challita

            That is completely unrelated to the conversation we were having. Do you have trouble concentrating, chief?

          • afchief

            I’m tired of conversing with a liar!!!

          • Elie Challita

            And yet, you answer…

          • Guest

            Tell me this: Why do Muslims call Y’shua “Isa” while Arab Christians call Him “Yasu”?

          • Elie Challita

            Because he’s referred to in the Koran as Isa, rather than Yasu’. They acknowledged that it’s the same person though: They rank Isa as the last great prophet to have come before Muhammad, but it’s made clear who they are referring to.

          • Guest

            But Arab Christians always say “Yasu”.

          • Elie Challita

            Depends on the country and pronunciation, a bit. But I don’t get what your problem is: Jesus is referred to as Yasu in Arabic versions of the bible, but the original Koran referred to him as Isa, and the name stuck because Muslims are not allowed to change anything in the Koran.
            Are you complaining that two different groups use different words to refer to the same guy?

          • Guest

            I’m stating that the Christian representation of Jesus is the correct one. The Qur’anic one is not.

          • Elie Challita

            Ok, good for you. I never made any claim as to which is the correct one. I share neither belief, and I couldn’t care less which one of y’all thinks he’s right. For me this entire conversation started to point out to afchief that he’s misusing a word in my first language.

          • Guest

            He is not misusing a word.

          • Elie Challita

            You have astounded me with your mastery of the Arabic language, as well as your long life experience among middle-eastern Christians

          • Guest

            In Arabic, it is “إله (‘ilāh)” not “allah”.

          • Guest

            If so, Elie, why do Muslims insist upon allah being called allah rather than “Dieu” in French, and why do they insist He be called Isa rather than Yasu?

          • Elie Challita

            Because the Koran is supposed to always be read and recited in its original arabic, which is quite frankly complicated and outdated even when compared to the current, written form of arabic.
            Muslims do not pray in any language other than arabic (or at least, they’re not supposed to), and they are not allowed to deviate from the text of the Koran (even though different sects and imams interpret it differently).
            Allah and Isa is how it is written in the Koran, and Allah and Isa is how they think it should be said.
            You also responded to my comment as to how Islam views Allah as the one true god, which is represented by the word Allah itself, which literally means “Al Ilah”, or “The God”.

          • Guest

            “al ilah” is not the same as “allah”. My fellowship is composed of former Muslims who refuse to say “allah”, and refuse to say “Isa” but rather “Yasu”.

          • Elie Challita

            I have no idea who’s in your fellowship, or if you guys are currently busy carrying a ring to throw in a volcano somewhere, but that’s likely a personal choice for them to distance themselves from their former faith.
            As I said before “al ilah” is often shortened to “al lah” where the i is no longer pronounced. It’s a very common concatenation in Arabic.

          • Guest

            Why do Muslims insist non-Arabic speakers refer to “allah” as such, rather than allowing a French Muslim to refer to him as “dieu”, or an English speaker as “god”?

          • Elie Challita

            Because one of the tenets of Islam is that the Koran was passed down to Mohammed in Arabic verbatim, and that all names and terms should always be used as they were passed on.
            I’m certainly not claiming any of it is true, but it’s why they all use the same word, and why all Muslims must pray in Arabic as well rather than in their own languages.

          • Guest

            That further proves that Islam is a political movement, not a religion, and that it is an Arab political movement. It also proves that “allah” is the Muslim’s proper name for the moon god, and not the generic name for “god” which is “ilah”.

          • Elie Challita

            To an atheist, religion and politics don’t really differ all that much. Every major religion has also been built on secular power, and we see a constant effort in the US today to bring religion to the forefront of legislation in the Republican party.

          • Guest

            Not every religion. Christianity is superior and different, in that the Christian God, Yasu, is alive and well and seated at the right hand side of His Father’s throne.

          • Elie Challita

            Eh, you’re more than welcome to believe that. Of course you’d think that Christianity is superior and different, because it’s your religion.

          • Guest

            It’s my religion by choice. I studied all religions and beliefs, including atheism, before I became convinced Yasu was who He said He was. Now I worship only Him.

          • Elie Challita

            All of them? Personally, I’ve always been partial to the Yanomani jungle gods, but I guess it’s down to a matter of personal taste

      • Elie Challita

        I don’t know why it’s so surprising, considering that Allah is simply the Arabic word for god. I grew up as part of the Catholic minority in Lebanon, and all our liturgies say Allah simply because that word means “god” in our national language, regardless of religion

        • Guest

          “God” in Arabic is إله (‘ilāh), not “allah”.

          • Elie Challita

            Ilah is the basic noun. When referring to “the god”, you would say “al ilah”, which is often concatenated to “al lah”, or Allah.
            Christian Maronites, the catholic subgroup that I grew up in, use the word Allah as well to refer to god.

          • Guest

            “Al Ilah” is still not the same as “allah”.

          • Elie Challita

            How familiar are you with Arabic, both in its formal written, and its vernacular form?

    • Keosaengsay Cye Souriyasong

      Afchief ,mores lies plus you are still can’t makes me believe Muslims anyway. So everyone should not comparing the Muslims to any type of the animals either , because they are ours foods, after all ours God are making them clean for us to consume , to compare them to the Muslims are making unclean. If you can get the Muslims away from your neighbors that will be great. Any been touched by them is cursed

      • afchief

        What has convinced me that we are very near to the Tribulation hour is how extreme the apathy has gotten in recent days. We are approaching what I can only describe as a total collapse of discernment.

        A good example of this is the problem of Islamic rape in Europe. Muslim immigrants have raped so many citizens of Sweden, it has turned the nation into “The Rape Capital of Western World.” If Muslim men see a woman walking unaccompanied by a man, they think they have a right by Islamic Sharia Law to have their way with her.

        These Muslim attacks have reached an unbelievable scale. In the city of Cologne, Germany during the New Year’s celebration over 1,000 drunken newly arrived Muslims robbed, or sexually molested nearly 500 women at the central railway station. This is crime on a completely new dimension.

        The truly crazy part is how leadership tolerates this type of behavior; defending the Muslims attackers as if they are the victims. After the Cologne attack, the local Integration Commissioner Aydan Ozoguz, warned against refugees and foreigners being put under “blanket suspicion.”

        • Keosaengsay Cye Souriyasong

          I shouldn’t saying this, but I was thinking, we the peoples can not, and will never be able to trust the Muslims in any explanation, because mohammed the prophets of the Muslims was given the Muslims permission to do to the none Muslims as theirs pleases, we can’t trust the Muslims.

          • afchief

            That’s where discernment comes in. We should share the Gospel with them and ask the Holy Spirit for discernment when dealing with them.

    There is hope for all to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior, but they have to be willing to accept Him. Many muslims could be converted if their religion was not mostly spread by word of mouth instead of reading and finding out about it for themselves. And there have been many instances of conversion to Christianity by muslims reading the words of the Savior. I hope she converts many… she may have to give her life to seal her testimony, but she will immediately be taken to heaven for her faith.

    Notice how this discussion got led away from the article. One of the devil’s greatest ploys is distraction from the important issues. . It can only succeed if Christians are too lazy minded to stay focused on the topic, which was Mona’s salvation and witness to Muslims. A very brave and eloquent lady.
