CHRISTIANITY and ISLAM

October 12, 2010

 

I have not written anything lately, because I find everything in the Bible fits together; like a jigsaw puzzle. When I start explaining something I believe God has given me, I find myself going off the subject because I begin to explain how I view another piece of the puzzle: because one has to understand the second piece before one can understand the first piece.

Well, this is too important piece of understanding to give up on. So please bear with me and I will try to stay on the subject.

I am going to try to explain the differences between Islam and Christianity. I am commanded by God to speak the truth as I understand it: because I am a Christian. I am charged with this simple rule no matter who I am speaking to, so I will speak the truth to both Christians and Muslims.

Both religions have a book from which they gain understanding from. Christians use the Bible and Muslims the Koran. Some confusion results when the gods spoken of in the two books are viewed as the same god. With only a little comparison, it is clear that the god of Islam is the mortal enemy of the God of the Bible.

Both gods claim that they do not change. The God of the Bible says that He has a son. The god of Islam says he has no son. If the God of the Bible says that He has a Son and then says he does not then He would have changed. So the two are not one.

The most important message of the Bible is that we all fall short of the glory of God, that we all need a Savior, and that Savior is Jesus. This work was completed with the death of Jesus and all that was written about it completed within 100 years after his death.

Then about 500 years later the Koran was dictated to Mohammed by an angel. An angel is only a messenger. An angel can be a messenger of Satan or a messenger of God. The message reveals whether it comes from God or Satin. If God sent His son to bear the punishment for the sins of the world and someone, or something denies that claim, then that someone or something would be an antichrist. They would be an enemy of the God of the Bible. The Words of the Bible warn of the coming of an antichrist 500 years before he or it came!

I will admit that one book is true and one is a counterfeit. Can a counterfeit be created before the original?

The God of the Bible gave man a golden rule and that is “Do to others what you would have them do to you”. If everyone obeyed that rule there would be world peace. There would be no murder, theft, lies, or any other offense against anyone. There would be no police, government, or rulers of any kind, as there would be no need for them. You would not want to rule over another, because you do not want to be ruled over. There would be no Islam; because Islam demands submission and submission would not be necessary if everyone followed the second royal law.

The God of the Bible does not violate His own rules. He does not demand submission to Himself. Everyone has the power to do anything he or she wants. No one is forced to glorify the God of the Bible, but those who think about it will do so from their heart. Those are the ones who will live with God and be happy forever. They are the friends of God and when this is all over, God will throw His enemies out of His kingdom, just as any one would. Who wants to live forever with their enemies?

As a Christian, I understand that every Muslim is the enemy of the God of the Bible, an antichrist, but as a Christian, I am commanded to love my enemies! That is not to say hug and kiss them, but to “do to them as I would have them do to me”, so if you follow Islam, let me warn you. You will indeed spend eternity with your god. When Allah is thrown out of the presence of God, you will also be thrown out! You will spend eternity with a god that commanded his followers to kill and lie in order to further his cause and his cause is to have everyone declare him God! If Allah wants you to lie to others, in order to further his cause, is he lying to you?

Whether you are Christian or Muslim, think about what I have said. The God of the Bible will not stop you; because He has nothing to fear, but Allah would and he will even have you killed for it!
