We are now in the days of “political correctness” which actually means ‘not speaking the truth to make people happy.’ We are in the days when the greatest obstacle to the salvation of souls is ignorance and deception from the pit of hell. While I commend the Pope for visiting a mosque and politicians screaming at the top of their lungs for ‘interfaith dialogue’; it is important to be careful of the ploy of satan to rob people of the free gift of salvation by not exposing them to the truth. It is based on this that I dare to declare the truth, supported by scriptural references, that Christianity and Islam are NOT sister faiths neither do they worship the same God. This is NOT an attack on “Muslims as a people” but a short comparative analysis of the core ideologies of Christianity and Islam.
While Islam is a religion, like Buddhism, Sikhism, Secular humanism, etc because they all portray a FALSE way to salvation; Christianity is a RELATIONSHIP with God that takes you straight to the CROSS. This is because ONLY on the Cross is Salvation, forgiveness, Mercies, Grace, Fulfillment, Peace, etc. The god of Islam called Allah commanded his ‘apostle’- Muhammad - and the ‘faithfuls’ to spread his religion by the sword and to loot, maim, behead all those who refuse to accept Allah as their god. [Ref. Surat 9:5: "Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islâmic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn (i.e polytheists, pagans, idolaters, atheists, Christians & Jews who do not believe in Allah) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give Zakât, then leave their way free. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful"]. Muhammed took the command with relish and the spread of Islam by “Triumphantism” is well recognized historically. In fact, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran said and I quote: “Pure JOY is to KILL and BE KILLED for Allah.” We can see how the ‘faithfuls’ are carrying out this command with relish in all continents of the world. [Additional ref: Surat 9: 29 "Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."] The god of Islam -Allah- is a god that is ‘so big’ that men can not have relationship with him, he has no limits neither can he be found in ‘jannat’ i.e. Islamic paradise. A review of the life and lifestyle of Muhammed from the quran will reveal a life of debauchery, deceit, compromise with pagans and paganism, hedonism, violence, extreme sexual immorality including marrying and sleeping with a 9-year old girl
Now let us compare this with the God described in the Bible who told us in 1st John 4 vs 7-8 that: “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth NOT knoweth NOT God; for GOD IS LOVE.” He also told us in Matthew 6 vs 44-45 that: “Love you enemies, bless them that that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That you may be children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” A practical demostration of this teaching can be seen in the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus rebuked Peter for cutting off the ear of one of the Roman soldiers who came to arrest him, and promptly healed the soldier. Furthermore, Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to spread his message to all nations by teaching, discipleship and baptism as seen in Mattew 28 vs 19-20 that: “Go ye therefore, and Teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” The God described in the Bible is an All Knowing, All Present and All Powerful God and Merciful God who is committed to his words and principles.
This is not a ‘politically correct’ message, it is my own opinion based on a research on the life, message and lifestyle of Jesus Christ and Muhammad and the ideologies of Christianity and Islam. It is the truth.
