Muslim World Takeover (Myth or Fact?)

I’ve heard of and seen this video a few times, and after watching it I must say I was troubled.  So I decided to take a little closer look and see if it is accurate.  I did this more for my own piece of mind, and that of my children, than anything else.

For a few years demographers have been sounding an alarm regarding the falling birth rates of Americans and other industrialized nations.  Some have especially sounded an alarm when those rates are compared to the birth rates of  other population groups, specifically Muslims.  Watch this recently popular You Tube video, and then afterward think critically with me.

Every person should be careful when they see and hear things purported to be facts.  A good dose of skepticism is a healthy thing to have.  Where my parents told me, “Don’t believe everything you read,” I am telling my children, “Don’t believe everything you see on TV, Facebook, Blogs (Which includes THIS blog!), or You Tube.”

I prefer them to think, examine, test, and evaluate everything they are exposed to!  1 Thessalonians 5:21! Not so that they will destroy every thought presented to them, but so that they aren’t taken in by sensationalism or questionable journalism, and WILL hold on to what is true.

Regarding the You Tube video above, I found something on another website that helps clarify the claims about Muslim birth rates and fertility.  If you watched the video, click here to read about Muslim fertility rates that are falling faster than the rest of the world!

By clicking here you can read another article from Princeton that sheds more light, but is a little longer.  Then you can click here to read another article that challenges the You Tube video from Snopes.

Bottom line, all people… regardless of their nationality or ethnic origin… need to hear the Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ alone.  Whether next door to us, or on another continent, the lost need to hear about salvation through Jesus.  Demographics and birth rates are under the hand of God who is in the process of getting the world ready for the return of His Son Jesus.

  1. One problem with these reports is that the word “Muslim” is used to define a geographic region, the Muslim world view is not limited to a group of countries. Even if the birth rate for Muslim’s is not on pace to take over the world the greater problem is that the countries of the world that are “Christian” are losing their Christian influence and this puts them in danger of accepting a different worldview.

    My question is just how accurate are the reports that tell us of the rapid growth and acceptance of Muslims and Islam in America today.

    They may not take over the world through their birthrates but through their conversion rates.

      At this point I’d like to interject a thought from Scripture from 2 Thess 2:1-3…

      Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first…

      There is no doubt that in the last days (The time between Jesus’ ascension and the consummation) a falling away from Christianity will transpire. Whether it will be because of a proliferation of the Muslim faith or some other means is yet to be revealed. However, there will also be a great gathering in that also comes before the return of Christ (In my view).

      Jer 3:17 At that time Jerusalem shall be called the throne of the Lord, and all nations shall gather to it, to the presence of the Lord in Jerusalem, and they shall no more stubbornly follow their own evil heart.

      Is 66:20 And they shall bring all your brothers from all the nations as an offering to the Lord, on horses and in chariots and in litters and on mules and on dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the Lord, just as the Israelites bring their grain offering in a clean vessel to the house of the Lord. 21 And some of them also I will take for priests and for Levites, says the Lord. 22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make shall remain before me, says the Lord, so shall your offspring and your name remain. 23 From new moon to new moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, declares the Lord.

      At some point in the future I believe that there will be a massive turning of the Jews to believe in their Messiah, Jesus Christ. Thus “All Israel” will be saved with “all Israel” being defined by those who believe (See Romans 2:28-29).

      Romans 11:25 Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And in this way all Israel (See Ro 2:28-29) will be saved… 28 As regards the gospel, they are enemies of God for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

      Regardless of all this, it is interesting to contemplate the future and what God will do to bring about the consummation of the ages. Bottom line, Christians are called to continue to proclaim the Gospel to all people in hopes of their conversion including the Jew, the Muslim, and all others who do not know Christ.
