The complexities and realities of Islam are often stark and counter to Western societal norms, as well as Judeo-Christian beliefs. This work is not an attempt to demean or denigrate individual Muslims, many whom are seeking a life of safety and peace. It is, however, an effort to alert the Christian community in America and the West to the great challenges and dangers of Islam as an ideology of conquest. Although an immense challenge, it offers the church in the West, and particularly in America, a great opportunity to reach those in bondage to darkness and expose them to the Light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It may take you some time to complete reading this compendium, but I encourage you to complete it and share your knowledge with others. Most of all, pray for America, our leaders, the Christian church, Muslims and the outreach of this work and ministry.
Two scriptures come to mind as I encourage you to move forward. There is light at the end of this tunnel.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
Thank you for being bold in the Lord and moving forward in His infinite grace and mercy. God bless you!

Unlike all other religions of the world, Christianity should stand as an extroverted belief system. That is to say that the Christian faith must proclaim and protect the truth of God unto all men. As the Apostle Paul puts it, the church, the representative of the Christian faith, is the pillar and foundation of the truth—internally as well as externally (1 Timothy 3:15).
Jesus said, “For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth” (John 18:37).
Truth about what? Truth about God and His salvation through Christ.
Actually better phrased would be, the truth that originates from God.
God is the God of truth. Everyone agrees on that, I mean everyone who believes in one true God. That is all the monotheistic religions, including Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Although these religions believe that God is truthful, do they know His truth?
Truth is the very ingredient of life. Any perverted form of the truth is perverted life. Unfortunately we live in an age where lies are believed to be the truth.
Upholding the truth and protecting it in these days of politically correct and morally confused world is not an easy task. There will be strong resistance to the truth, similar to that of Jannes and Jambres who opposed the Word of God through Moses, so there will be those who oppose the truth, men of depraved mind (2 Tim 3:8 ).
In regards to ideologies, one of the strongest opposing forces to God and His truth is the religion of Islam, a belief system that is in utter contradiction to the truth of God’s Word.
If the Apostle Paul lived in our days, he would include Islam in Romans chapter one: “They exchanged the truth of God for the lie” Romans 1:25.
As believers and true followers of Christ, we must live by the truth as well as protect it no matter what the cost may be. If we fail, we have lost our savor, and as Jesus puts it, we are good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot (Matthew 5:13).
If Christianity is tasteless, mocked, and ridiculed, it is solely on the ground of the Church being indifferent to the truth.
So the question is, what must the church do when Islam, a world religion, claims unashamedly that Mohammad is a prophet of God, and Jesus is only a prophet ranked as inferior to Mohammad and when Islam holds in its religious fangs 1.7 billion people, denying them the truth of the Gospel?
If the church remains silent in the name of political correctness or fear of persecution or whatever the reason may be—then the church is not the pillar and the ground of the truth!
The church of Christ upholds the truth because she is a Steward of God, a representative for God for this dying humanity.
It is calculated that in the year 2050, the continent of Europe will become an Islamic continent, just by the means of birth rate of the Muslim families immigrated to Europe in the past few decades. Why is Islam, an antichrist religion growing so rapidly in a continent that used to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ from every corner? It is simply because the light of the Gospel has dimed and the church is no longer a Pillar of the truth.
Dr. Gauss, in this profound study, is upholding the truth of the Gospel, revealing the fallacies of a false religion. His pen is sharp but the imprint of his spirit is marked with compassion and love for a lost people who believe they are worshipping the one true God.
I commend Dr. Gauss on writing such an informative book bringing out the darkness that covers every page of the Quran and delusions of the Islamic faith.
May there be more voices such as Dr. Gauss proclaiming the truth of God with boldness and in the spirit of Christ. And may we witness freedom for millions of Muslims who are bound by a dark and evil force!
Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble....
