Appendix Six of Allah, Divine or Demonic, shows that Islam is NOT increasing as panic-mongers claim

It is commonly believed that Islam is the world's fastest growing religion. Many writers report great leaps forward in the number of mosques in western countries, and they give numbers for immigration which would seem to sustain the terror that Muslims will soon control the US House, the Senate, and the British Parliament.
I beg to differ. While Islam is certainly a growing religion, it is not the fastest growing cult at all. The myth of Islam's rapid growth is moderated greatly by understanding how mosques come and go. Outside of the Middle East, the majority of mosques are in homes and rented buildings. They flourish for a while, then the congregation re-groups, as some abandon Islam, while new members immigrate into the Western world fresh from the Middle East. In this process, a new location is found for the house-mosque, and the old one is abandoned. I have seen very little evidence that Americans are being converted from Catholic, Baptist, or any other churches, to Islam.
As far as the non-western world, the new converts to Islam are often very secular. In Egypt, Coptics "convert" by going to Friday prayers. This is done so that they will be seen by the Imam, and potential employers, thus enhancing their job hunting status. Their Coptic Orthodoxy is of the cheap variety anyway. This kind of "convert" to Islam becomes secularized very quickly if he moves out of Egypt to a neutral or democratic nation.
This applies to the vast majority of the Muslims you will meet all over the world. The problem is that the media never tells you about these Muslims. They only show the mad mob of frenzied bigots screaming for blood in the streets of Teheran or Khartoum.
A much more pernicious religious cult of the end times is far ahead of Islam, and truly taking over the world. The religious system which is now rising up will indeed rule the world, and the old Roman Catholic Church will be at its head. Vatican II laid out a strategy far more insidious than any Islamic plan to rule the world, and John Paul II is making every compromise necessary to reach the point where he rules all sacred and secular things. He is even hinting at the Roman Church's guilt in the Nazi Holocaust and the millions slaughtered in the Inquisition.
What nation has diplomatic relations with Mecca? None! But many nations beg at the Pope's hand for recognition, and it is imperative for kings and presidents to kiss up to His (alleged) Holiness. Not the least of these is Israel, where the Whore Church will attack the Jews during the Great Tribulation, subjecting them to canabalism, according to prophetic teachings.
We hear the praises of the Pope from Protestants like Billy Graham, Jack Van Impe, Bill Bright, Chuck Colson, and TBN and 700 Club on television. None of these men are running to Mecca. Of course, in these "perilous times" anything is possible, so we may yet see a Mullah of Islam being fawned over by Paul Crouch on TBN.
Charismatics now join whole heartedly with Rome, the same Rome that attacked their missionaries in Mexico and Africa in the 1950's. Malachi Martin, in The Keys of This Blood, made it very clear that there is a well-thought-out strategy in the Vatican to rule the world. He makes it clear that they believe it is their right and destiny.
Opus Dei, a secret organization of storm troopers who are pledged to destroy Protestantism, may soon be pressed into action as the Pope introduces a seductive Protestant sounding "Protocol of Salvation". The Chuck Colsons and Jack Van Impes of washed out Protestantism will lead the charge back to "Mother Church."
We also see that Europe is coming together into a united power with the United Nations and the EU. Who does the General Secretary of the United Nations exalt? Answer: Europe and one-world power. He couldn't care less for the Sheiks of Arabie. Please read below how the worldwide religious Whore system will finally rise up. It may well include Islam and every counterfeit Baptist, Pentecostal, and Methodist filthy bird that refuses the rule of Christ in the Church, and is left behind when Christ takes His true Church to heaven:
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked
with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the
great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Not the Vatican, as some imagine, but seven Middle Eastern nations which make a league with Satan, the antichrist, and with the Whore church.
18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having
great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
The Vatican, and the Pope, are simply setting the trend for this. The coming Whore may not even be headed by the Pope, but by some world religious leader who steps forward at the right moment, such as Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, or the Dalai Lama.
Continuing the above
text: 4 And I heard another voice from heaven,
saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and
that ye receive not of her plagues.
Islam has no cohesive strength at all. Mecca has no committee or headship over the Dar ul-Islam, The House of Islam, nor will it ever have. It ought to be very clear to anyone who follows the news that Muslims get along with each other very poorly, so how will this divided house rule the world, as modern panic mongers would have us to believe?
The truth is, in many places where Islam and Muslims are found, it is a very friendly place for general living. Sudan, Arabia, Malaysia, and a hand full of other nations, are very hateful toward non-Muslims. But; Lebanon, Cairo, Jordan, Iraq, western China, Dearborn, Michigan, and Birmingham, England are very secularized, and Islam there is not the main event at all. Look on the map and you will see how little of the world Islam actually controls.
Those who perpetuate the myth of Islam's future rule of the earth, also forget that God made it very clear whom He would enlarge in the world. The Bible, Genesis 9:27, God shall enlarge Japheth, (father of the white race) and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem (Jews and Arabs); and Canaan (the black race) shall be his servant. The fact is, the white race has been a lot more treacherous on Semitic people, both Jews and Arabs, than Islam has been on the white race. The caution should be to the Arabs and Israel: Beware of the West and the Roman Catholic Whore Church.
Please, dear Christian friend, stop this big-eyed credulous terror of Islam. Give them the Gospel, and keep an eye on the real enemy since 300 AD-- the Roman Catholic Whore.
The West needs a new "other," or enemy, to replace the Soviet Union and justify the brutal ongoing United Nations mini-wars. The Arabs serve very well for this purpose, but the saints of Jesus Christ need no enemy other than Satan himself. All Muslims are candidates for heaven and we must see that they hear the glorious Gospel of Christ.
