What an interesting question!
I surmise that a systematic approach
(according to the best methodologies of Creation Science) are needed to unravel with enigmatic issue. I think that we must start by defining a time frame. The Treaty of Tripoli
was in 1797
so that gives us one point of time. Can we obtain any other data?
We can. Unfortunately, we have to turn to the false Christian false Papists, i.e
. They wrote their spin-off document Confessio Augustana
in 1530. Let us see how the Islamists are referred to over there!
They [the Lootheran heretic Churches] condemn all heresies which have sprung up against this article, as the Manichaeans, who assumed two principles, one Good and the other Evil: also the Valentinians, Arians, Eunomians, Mohammedans, and all such.
In the Germanic dialects:
Deshalb werden verworfen alle Ketzereien, die diesem Artikel zuwider sind, wie die Manichäer, die zwei Götter gesetzt haben, einen bösen und einen guten, ebenso die Valentinianer, Arianer, Eunomianer, Mahometisten und alle dergleichen
...and in the Papist vernacular_
Damnant omnes haereses, contra hunc articulum exortas, ut Manichaeos, qui duo principia ponebant, bonum et malum, item Valentinianos, Arianos, Eunomianos, Mahometistas et omnes horum similes.
In all these languages there is only
the "Mohammedan" version. Interestingly, the Lutherans have very strong ties
with the Islamists as they do not think that "Islam" would be another false religion but just a Christian® Heresy!
Probably this is still the reason why they decided to break away from the majority Papists
who identified (and still do) 100%
with the Islamists. Another quite amusing issue is the Title
of this Papist spin-off document:
The Confession of Faith which was submitted to His Imperial Majesty Charles V at the Diet of Augsburg in the year 1530 by certain princes and cities
What is the point of having a regal session of dieting?
Apparently weight loss was necessary that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
These Mohammedans and their allies, Papist Lutheran have thus no shame.
But I diverged. Now we have a time frame.
The change from Mohammedans into Muslims did not
take place in 1530 nor
. By this method of exclusion we'll eventually get a definite answer!
Yours in Christ,
