Islam is Satan’s magnum opus of false religions. Satan knows he has already lost the war, but he battles on to take as many down to the pit with him as he can.
One would think anyone with a modicum of common sense and intellectual integrity could not possibly be fooled by this venomous, homicidal, bloody religion; Islam. Clearly that is not the case, but why?
Let’s see what the God of the Bible has to say about why the world is so blind to false religions and Islam’s bloody dogma in particular.
Paul in his letter to the church at Corinth told them “the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving.” That seems pretty clear and straight forward. But who is this god of the world?
Paul’s full passage in this letter states:
[Since] we received mercy, we do not lose heart, 2 but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 1:1-4
This Pauline Epistle, like all epistolary writings in the Bible is written to followers of Jesus Christ.
Essentially Paul is saying that as Christians, justified by Christ, and indwelt with His Holy Spirit we no longer walk in the ways of the world. It is the Spirit which allows us to understand the truth of the Word of God–our eyes are no longer veiled.
Those who are perishing do not understand; cannot understand what the Bible teaches (v 3). Additionally verse 4 tacitly tells us that not only is the gospel message veiled, but the unbelievers minds are blinded to truth, but vulnerable to the lies of the world.
So when the god of the world; Satan, tells some of these people to strap bombs on their children to kill Jews, to execute Christians, blow up Christian Churches, rape non-Muslim women, mutilate the genitals of little girls, take six year old girls for wives–they simple follow blindly along.
