Jihad and Dhimma: Two Pillars of Islam the West Ignores

Guest: Pastor Mark Durie, author, The Third Choice

“Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue – one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice – and it is: “Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually?” [The answer is:] Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: either willing submission; or payment of the jizya, through physical though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or the sword – for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”  Osama Bin Laden

The world watches in shock and befuddlement as the Islamic State’s (formerly known as ISIS) takes over large swaths of Iraq and Syria, killing, beheading, and enslaving all who stand in their mission of a revived Islamic kingdom (caliph).  Meanwhile, President Obama just announced this week a “counter-terrorism” strategy to push back against the group he calls “ISIL” (our guest will tell you why).

Who is the Islamic State?  A fringe group of thugs that are “not Islamic,” as President Obama said?  Or are they operating according to a historic theological worldview central to Islam?

Australian pastor Mark Durie, who has written three books on Islam, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss his recent column, “Three Choices and the Bitter Harvest of Denial” where he examines two pillars of Islam — jihad and dhimma — that the West ignores.

Islamic State “Not Islamic”? (Sept. 15-21, 2014)

Is the Islamic State “not Islamic”?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

President Obama recently said:  “ISIL is not Islamic.  No religion condones the killing of innocents.”

The truth is, the Islamic State and it’s goal of a revived Islamic caliphate in the middle east gained through militant jihad and ruled by Islamic sharia law is theologically based in centuries-old Islamic teaching and Mohammed’s example.  To say otherwise is to ignore or reinterpret history.

Our nation has a biblical duty to protect its citizens from those who would harm us and Christians have the call to speak the truth in love.

Hear an interview about the worldview of the Islamic State or ISIS at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, Todd Friel joins us to take off the mask that the world has put on Jesus.

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer? How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing? For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.) 2. Abide in Christ.   John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer...
