How the Church Is Being Undermined from Within
In their book, The Common Word: The Undermining of the Church, Sam Solomon, a Muslim apostate, devout Christian, and scholar of Islam, and Elias Al Maqdisi, an expert on Islamic teachings, expose the true meaning and spirit of "Common Word." They contend that the message is "accept Islam or face the consequences," rather than a paean of "unity" or the "oneness" of G‑d. Noteworthy is that the document lacked any apology for Islamic invasions and conquests or invitations to build churches in Islamic lands.
The authors point out that, despite the seeming message of peace in the document, sharia law mandates that Muslims are not allowed to enter into peace agreements with non-Muslims or forgo their obligation to perform jihad. They also state that whereas Judaism and Christianity teach, "love of one's neighbor as one's self," Islam teaches followers to have enmity toward Jews and Christians as set forth in the Islamic doctrine of Al Wala Wa al Baraa, or Loyalty and Enmity. Mainstream Islam advocates the separation of Muslims from non-Muslims, who are viewed as "unclean." Quran 58:22 states that devout Muslims do not befriend non-Muslims "even if they be their fathers, sons, brothers, or kin."
