A friend of mine recommended a book called America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It by Michael Steyn. Steyn says that in the face of the Islamic threat, the world will be divided between America and the rest and for our sake America had better win. Although Europe now has more Muslims than ever before, this is mainly due to immigration from Europe’s bordering Muslim nations. I think the greatest threat to the United States and Europe is from the radical left and western humanism, not Islam.
Islam will not have a significant influence in America. Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists make up less than five percent of the total United States population. That is not likely to change.
Christianity is actually outpacing Islam worldwide: In 1900, Africa had 10 million Christians or about 9 percent of its population. Today, there are roughly 360 million out of 784 million people or 46%. Latin America has 480 million Christians. Asia has another 300 million. At this rate of growth, Christianity will be the dominant religion with 2.5 billion within the next 25 years. There will be Muslims who will become radicalized as a result of Christ’s victory, but then again, predictions about America becoming Islamic are exaggerated.
Remember all the doomsday books in the 1970s and 1980s? The killer bees are coming tomorrow, nuclear holocaust is The Day After, followed in a few weeks by new uncurable strains of deadly disease, biological warfare and genetic mutants. If the 1980s were not the Decade of Shock, then did we learn nothing from the false prophets of the Y2K scare?
By the way, you can get all these books really cheap now!
One of my favorite songs from the early 1970s is a comic ragtime novelty piece by Ray Davies called Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues. It describes the way that conspiracy theorists think. I read in the news not long ago that it turns out we actually have killer bees in Florida now. But it’s not the end of the world as we know it.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
