Challenge of Islam (Part One): What is Islam?
By: Sam Shamoun
To the Western mind, the faith and practice of Islam are often a profound mystery. In recent years, this religion has emerged as a prominent -- yet misunderstood -- belief system. Listen as Sam Shamoun, an Arab-Christian, unveils some of the mystique surrounding this religion first preached by Muhammad and today practiced by more than one billion people worldwide.

In Part One of this two-part Men's NetWork Bible study, the teachings of Islam are brought into focus. In addition to learning about the "Five Pillars of Islam," participants will examine what the Quran says about the role of Abraham, the Trinity, angels and jinn (genies), the attributes of Jesus Christ, the character of Muhammad, Judgment Day, and paradise.

The Quran is the premier Muslim holy book. As such, its 114 chapters are the faith-guide for Muslims everywhere. For instance, did you know the Quran claims Jesus is not God, nor is He the Son of God? Were you aware Quranic teaching says the religion of the patriarchs -- Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as well as all the prophets -- is Islam? Shamoun asks, "Christians, do you see the challenge of Islam, and are you prepared to deal with this challenge?"

While Islam is a religious force to be reckoned with, it already has been dealt its deathblow through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. Armed with love and an attitude that considers Muslims -- like everyone else -- those for whom Christ died, Christians can share the same Good News that gives them salvation. As Shamoun says, "The only thing that can defeat Islam is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ."

Reasons to Believe
The faith Christians confess is grounded in the texts of Scripture and the historical milieu of the people and places where the events of the Bible unfolded. This affirmation of trust by the believer in God's saving grace is not a question of choosing between facts and faith; neither is it one that collapses beneath the rigors of academic scrutiny.

Satan: The Great Deceiver
The battle we wage in this world is not against flesh and blood but "against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." So writes the apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:12. Thus our capacity to resist the forces of darkness is ultimately a losing fight.
