According to new population projections by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life the world's Muslim population is expected to increase by about 35% in the next 20 years, rising from 1.6 billion in 2010 to 2.2 billion by 2030. In the United States, for example, the population projections show the number of Muslims more than doubling over the next two decades, rising from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030. This is attributed in a large part to the immigration and higher-than-average fertility among Muslims."[8].

There is a concern about Islam because of the radical, extremist views and violent actions by some within the movement.

This concern is not unwarranted, when ones examines verses in the Quran an the Hadith that advocate violence against non Muslims for the sake of Islamic rule. Some verses are very graphic, with commands to chop off heads, fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.

"...the Pew Research Center has released extensive research on how Muslims in the U.S. self-identify on questions of violence – and the conclusions are frightening.” Graham cited the 1.8 million Muslim adults in the United States. “Pew Research released that eight percent of adult Muslims in the U.S. said that suicide bombings and other forms of violence in the name of Islam are ‘sometimes’ or ‘often’ justified. Think about it – that’s 144,000 Muslims who openly say without hesitation that violence in the name of Islam is justified! “That’s not ‘peaceful’ and that’s not a small number – it’s about the size of the entire population of Syracuse, New York!” he wrote.

"...“Research shows that there are 2.75 million Muslims living in the U.S. According to a poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy, 51 percent of Muslims living in America believe ‘Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah’ [Islamic law] instead of the U.S. Constitution.”[9]

From a Christian view the greatest danger is spiritual. Islam denies the deity of Christ, the crucifixion and the resurrection as taught in the Bible. The account in Genesis and other portions of scripture.

 Its' system of salvation differs from that of Christianity, in addition Islam maintains that one cannot have a personal relationship with God in contrast to the Christian belief that a person can. Are you prepared to be a witness for Christ to the Muslim community?
