Ten Reasons Islam is Dangerous

Ten Reasons Islam is Dangerous


Islam teaches that Jesus Christ, the Crucified, Risen Son of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords was not the Son of God, nor was he crucified (the latter a well documented historical fact that only Islam denies). This teaching removes the possibility of salvation and eternal life in heaven for all Islam’s believers. They face eternal damnation in hell if they do not repent.

You may be a peaceful, westernized Muslim who rejects Islamic Sharia Law and violent jihad, who openly condemns terrorism. Or you may be a devout Muslim who does plan to blow himself up and honor God, to get into paradise, but you are still in danger. You are lost and cannot be saved by your ‘good’ deeds alone. No one can. Salvation comes only through grace in Christ.


The Koran does not have an eternal origin, as Muslims claim. It is not recorded in heaven. The Almighty God, Creator of the World, is not it’s source. It is not holy. It’s writings are human in origin, a concoction of old and new teachings originating from a false prophet. The idolatry of the Koran itself, that it can, supposedly, only be understood in classic Arabic, that it should only be spoken in that language, is a man made limitation dictated by the prophet’s followers to perpetuate control and fear.


Islam’s teaching includes Arabian idolatry, paganism, rites and rituals. These are demonic, an ongoing Satanic stronghold under which Muslims and the world suffer, especially in Islamic lands. It is not simply a void, a lack of reality and truth. The personal, grace-filled relationship with the Living God of the Christian Bible is not found in Islam. In its place is a very convincing and power-filled darkness. When you reject the life of God through Jesus Christ, you, unwittingly or not, accept the power of the devil over your life.


The earliest writings that are known to exist about the Prophet Mohammad were recorded 120 years after his death, most much later amid many disputes. All of the Islamic writings (the Koran and the Hadith, the biographies, the traditions and histories) are confused, contradictory and inconsistent. Maybe Mohammad never existed. We have no conclusive account about what he said or did. Yet Muslims follow the destructive teachings of Islam without question.


Mohammad’s life and message cannot be respected. The first Meccan period of his leadership seems to have been religiously motivated and a search for the truth. But in the second Medina period he was “corrupted by power and worldly ambitions” (Ibn Warraq). These are characteristics that God hates. Power and worldly ambition, all lost in eternity, never motivated any of God’s true followers. They also led to political assassinations and massacres which continue to be carried out by his followers today.

If you offend Muslims by questioning their beliefs, their prophet, their writings, their ambitions, their laws, they become aggressive, call down the curses of Allah against you, threaten and plan to kill you. We have received thousands of aggressive calls and letters from Muslims here at Dove World Outreach Center. We have received hundreds of violent and specific death threats against leaders, men, women and children. We have not harmed a soul. We have simply spoken words of truth and salvation. We will continue to do so.


Islamic Law is totalitarian in nature. There is no separation of church and state. It is irrational. It is supposedly immutable and cannot be changed. It must be accepted without criticism. The father, the men, are sovereign in their own homes. Backed by Sharia Law, they are responsible for discipline and order, often harshly and violently administered. This is not isolated in Islamic lands. Immigrants in the West do not find it easy, or are simply not willing to abide by Western laws. And increasingly in the West, Muslims are not prosecuted in the same manner as Westerners because judges, law enforcement agencies and governments do not want to offend and anger Muslim immigrant communities.


Islam is not compatible with democracy and human rights. The notion of a moral individual capable of making decisions and taking responsibility for them does not exist in Islam. Everything is subject to the laws of Allah as interpreted by the local imams and mullahs.

The attitude towards women in Islam as inferior possessions of men has led to countless cases of mistreatment and abuse for which Muslim men receive little or no punishment, and in many cases are encouraged to commit such acts, and are even praised for them. Individuals are obligated first to family honor, to clan and society law. Astonishingly, Islamic states are heavily represented at the United Nations and on the the Human Rights Council, yet Western governments seem powerless, helpless or unwilling to challenge their atrocious human rights records.


A Muslim does not have the right to change his religion. Apostasy is punishable by death. Western governments rarely speak about this problem and are reluctant to believe it exists. Where is the freedom of religion in Islamic homes, societies and countries? Why do Western governments make it so difficult for ex-Muslims to find asylum in our lands?

The current US Administration is generous with immigrant visas to Pakistani Muslims, for instance, but Pakistani Christians with family members here ready to support them, and in danger every day of persecution and death just for being Christians in Pakistan, find it almost impossible to come here. Christians are dying and being persecuted regularly in Egypt, yet the US Government does not challenge that government’s lack of protection for the Christians. Churches are burned regularly and cannot be rebuilt in Indonesia. Christians are executed every Friday in Saudi Arabia, but the media does not care, Western governments do not react.

Why? We must stand up, America, and demand a change. Is a friendly relationship with these governments more important than religious freedom and the eternal souls of men, women and children?


Deep in the Islamic teaching and culture is the irrational fear and loathing of the West. This has been repeated by many ex-Muslims who have written and spoken about their faith. They are raised with this fear and mistrust, with a religious legalism which judges everything in it’s path based on the Islamic ideal. Yet the Islamic ideal itself is not followed within Islamic homes and societies. Muslims are well known for sexual immorality, homosexuality, violent and corrupt behavior, for lying. It is hidden by the heavy hand of Sharia policing, but it is there. In Christian lands we have the same problems, but Christian teaching does not condone these things, and our land’s laws criminalize much of the most oppressive behaviors that are not criminalized under Islam: lying is called fraud; corrupt governments are removed; honor killing, rape, pedophilia, polygamy, all receive heavy convictions.


Islam is a weapon of Arab imperialism and Islamic colonialism. Wherever Islam has or gains political power, Christians, Jews and all non-Muslims receive persecution, discrimination, are pressured or forced to convert. Islam condones massacres (Mohammad participated in them) and churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship are destroyed.
