Taqiyya-inspired Muslims: The tares among the wheat

This is a Biblical perspective of Islamic deception.

Islamic deception runs deep and wide throughout history.  Islamic doctrine calls for Muslims to blend in with the majority culture until their numbers and influence rise to the point where they can take aggressive action to overcome the former majority culture.  In the United States, “blending in” involves claiming they are “a religion of peace”, that Allah and the Judeo-Christian God are one and the same, that Muslims have the interests of this nation, the Constitution, and our freedoms at heart, and they are even more tolerant than the Islamophobic non-Muslims.

Not much liberty has to be taken with Jesus’ parable of the wheat and the tares (Matthew Chapter 13, verses 24-43) to demonstrate that the followers of Islam are the tares growing amongst the wheat.

The explanation Jesus provides in verses 37-40:

“The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels.  Therefore just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.”

Tares are poisonous.  From the time they first sprout until close to harvest time, the tares are wheat look-alikes, growing in the midst of and indistinguishable from the wheat.   The tares cannot be separated from the wheat until the wheat is ready for harvest because they look just like the wheat, but they ultimately do need to be separated from the wheat after the harvest.

The most common application made of this parable represents the tares as “false Christians” in the midst of “real Christians”, the wheat. False Christians oftentimes cannot be distinguished from real Christians. However, Scripture does not call the tares “false Christians.”  Tares are called “sons of the evil one.”  King James uses “children of the wicked one.” 

While this parable certainly refers to false Christians, it can certainly apply to other types of deceivers.  One no-brainer application is to those who falsely claim their Allah is just like God the Father, who claim theirs is “the religion of peace”, that they are tolerant of all religions and will live in harmony within the existing culture.

What major world ideology (I more accurately call it an ideology rather than a “religion.) is best known for their doctrine of deception (aka “taqiyya”")?  What major world ideology practices their deception among Jews and Christians (people of the book) to hide their poisonous influence until they amass enough influence and power to subvert the existing culture and displace the current religions?  What major world ideology is called a “Trojan Horse” as it practices its deception to control infidel nations?

Throughout history, Islam’s actions have earned the title of “sons of the evil one.”  The Muslim practice of deception to blend in and hide their supremacist intent within Christian nations clearly justifies their identity with “tares” in Jesus’ parable of the wheat and the tares.

Isn't it interesting how Christ gave us all of these warnings and signs to which we should pay attention and how few of us within the Church are heeding them?
