In the sense that there is a loss of focus on the Truth the world needs to hear about the events that are happening today, there may be an argument made that can be attributed to the Hebrew Holy Scriptures; that in the times we are in today, there is indeed an apostasy of the faith, a falling away if you will, from the precepts told to Christians by Jesus Christ in the Gospels, and in the epistles of Peter and Paul. We are told in the Holy Bible that the falling away must come first in order for the end-times event to commence. Since they have commenced, we are confident of the consequential events that are going to follow. Therein resides the simple Truth of the Holy Bible.

As to whether democracy is the best form of government or not, we must remember that Jesus Christ spoke of kingdoms and His return to Israel will be as her King. There will be no democracy in the realm of the Eternal Almighty God.

It is understood the Quran was written in Arabic because it was the language understood by the Islamic prophet and it has been widely mentioned by students of the Quran that it is the only language that it should be read in. It has even been said that only people of Arabic descent were to gain the full blessing of the Quran, that others are to be held in lesser esteem. Whether or not this is true, someone else can provide the illumination. It does present a problem though, if one thinks that there is a universal common sense that all cannot share.

As to the western culture being absorbed by assimilation into the Islamic scheme of things, if the foregoing is true, then it is not likely that will happen. The clash of cultures becomes inevitable, and that is prescribed in the Holy Bible with the outcome already proclaimed. Neither westernized forms of government (democratic or otherwise), nor oriental caliphates will survive the outcome of the return of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. It will be centered in His promised land Israel, and His throne in the center of Jerusalem.

The Hebrew Bible (the Torah, the Prophets and the Books of wisdom, which later have their culmination in the Brit Hadassah), are not Assyrian historical tomes, but is a work authored and authorized by the Holy Almighty God of Israel. It is the central work of Truth presented through the Hebrew people and is shared with those who hold its truth in faith of belief in Jesus Christ, and not for those who have forsaken such truth, as you are observing, for a lesser cause of denominational religious Christianity.

Should the Biblical works be written in Aramaic? Only Matthew was written in that ancient tongue originally, the rest being written in the colloquial Greek spoken by most of the realm of that time. This Aramaic translation is demonstrated by the Holy Spirit as unnecessary, for the truth contained is presented by the Holy Bible in the language the Holy Spirit uses to each believer in their own tongue, and that is all that is necessary for believing in faith.

Now, there are those churches who have fallen away (the Anglicans, Presbyterians, Methodists, etc., etc.,) but the true Church is still faithful to Jesus Christ, irrespective of where such true members worship. It is in that membership that Jesus Christ has vested His Truth, and in that Truth, believers in Him in their faith are not going to be disappointed.

Can we say the same about followers of Islam? This remains to be seen. But until one discerns that much of what comprises Islam is a distillation of faithless Judaism and corrupted religious Christianity (much of what is contained in the Quran can be found in the underlying principles of other religious endeavors), Islam will become the prevalent religious counterpart to the Babylonian remnant of the old Christianesque religion left after the true Church is gone, as is written in the Hebrew Holy Bible.

What is happening in Persia (Iran, Elam in the Holy Bible) does have its Biblical implications, for Iran figures prominently in eschatological terms. This too, remains to be seen as to how much is being prepared for the final events.
