A Contrast Between Mohammed and Christ
George Zeller, Middletown Bible Church ^ | 10/29/01 | RaceBannon

A Contrast Between Mohammed and Christ

Mohammed was the prophet of war; Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7).

Mohammed's disciples killed for the faith; Christ's disciples were killed for their faith (Acts 12:2; 2 Tim. 4:7).

Mohammed promoted persecution against the "infidels"; Christ forgave and converted the chief persecutor (1 Tim. 1:13-15).

Mohammed was the taker of life; Christ was the giver of life (John 10:27-28).

Mohammed and his fellow warriors murdered thousands; Christ murdered none but saved many (compare John 12:48).

Mohammed method was COMPULSION; Christ aim was voluntary CONVERSION (Acts 3:19).

Mohammed practiced FORCE; Christ preached FAITH (John 6:29,35).

Mohammed was a WARRIOR; Christ is a DELIVERER (Col. 1:13; 1 Thess.1:10).

Mohammed conquered his enemies with the sword; Christ conquered his enemies with another kind of sword, the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God (Heb. 4:12; Acts 2:37).

Mohammed said to the masses, "Convert or die!"; Christ said, "Believe and live!" (John 6:47; 11:25-26).

Mohammed was swift to shed blood (Rom. 3:15-17); Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Eph. 1:7).

Mohammed preached "Death to the infidels!"; Christ prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34).

Mohammed declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels; Christ achieved a holy victory on Calvary's cross (Col. 2:14-15) and His followers share in that victory (John 16:33).

Mohammed constrained people by conquest; Christ constrained people by love (2 Cor. 5:14).

Modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Mohammed and carry out their despicable atrocities in the name of his god; Christians derive their inspiration from the One who said, "Blessed are the peacemakers" (Matthew 5:9).

Modern day disciples of Mohammed respond to the terrorist attacks by cheering in the streets; modern day disciples of Christ are deeply grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were "Christians" in name only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).

Many Muslims are peaceful and peace-loving because they do not strictly follow the teachings of their founder; many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Rom. 12:17-21).

Mohammed called upon his servants to fight; Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world; if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight . . .but now is My kingdom not from here" (John 18:36)

Mohammed ordered death to the Jews (see A.Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad, Oxford University Press [1975], p. 369); Christ ordered that the gospel be preached "to the Jew first" (Rom. 1:16).

The Koran says, "Fight in the cause of Allah" (Qu'ran 2.244); the Bible says, "we wrestle not against flesh and blood" and "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal" (Eph. 6:12; 2 Cor. 10:4).

The Koran says, "Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them" (Qu'ran 9.5); Christ said, "Preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

The Koran says, "I will inspire terror into the hearts of unbelievers" (Qu'ran 8.12); God inspires His terror into the hearts of believers (Isaiah 8:13).

The Koran (Qu'ran) is a terrorist manual which condones fighting, conflict, terror, slaughter, and genocide against those who do not accept Islam; the Bible is a missionary manual to spread the gospel of peace to all the world (Rom. 10:15).

Mohammed's Mission was to conquer the world for Allah; Christ's mission was to conquer sin's penalty and power by substitutionary atonement (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:18).

Mohammed considered Christ a good prophet; Christ pronounced Mohammed to be a false prophet (John 10:10; Matt. 24:11).

Mohammed claimed that there was but one God, Allah; Christ claimed that He was God (John 10:30-31; John 8:58-59; John 5:18; John 14:9).

Mohammed's Tomb: OCCUPIED! Christ's tomb: EMPTY!

The thing that blows me away is all those blacks adopting Arabic- and Islamic- sounding names, even though the only slavery in the world is in Moslem nations and Red China. Mahomet owned slaves; Jesus didn't

Smoting sinners, yes, and in some cases, the children of the sinners. Once the area was secure, though, the smoting was to stop. Islam just smotes!

"Plenty of smoting in the Bible, as well."

People are killed every day---Is it likely for the impostion of tyranny or the opposition to tyranny?

Their mohammed never died on a cross and rose from the dead and he never healed anyone like Jesus did. Theirs is a farce and they can have him.

For me I believe in God, not some mohammed. Thank you for the ping my friend.

Dear RaceBannon--From the moment I saw the 2nd plane hitting the WTC on TV I knew in my heart that anyone who thought that this act would guarantee them entry into paradise was worshipping Satan--Satan loves destruction and havoc.

It seems to me that Mohammed was a false prophet if for no other reason than that his message was not to teach man to love each other and all God's creatures but to force them to submit to oppressive rules and to destroy other people who refused to bow down...very diabolical. My personal opinion of Islam is that it is a junk religion since it does not seem to encourage people to make an inner journey of faith but rather seems to dote on the carnal. While I am sure that many well educated Muslims have taken it upon themselves to lead good lives and to delve into their own spiritual natures, the religion itself as laid out by Mohammed including the fatwa angle is militaristic and uninspiring. The persecution of non Muslims in Pakistan and other Muslim nations is absolutely medieval--I cry for those women (Muslim and non Muslim) who live at the mercy of these maniacs. Their hatred of female sexuality except when it is controlled and harnessed by their fathers, brothers, and husbands reminds me of the German obsession with the Jews--a lethal mix of neurosis, paranoia, and psychosis.

Really! Just how believable can a religion be if it has to call for the ruthless destruction of all those who do not believe?

I would like to see someone write a contrast between the Christianity of Christ and the Christianity of Saint Paul. It would be equally shocking.

Wow! Thanks for the post. There was another thread awhile ago on FreeRepublic comparing the Bible to the Koran. It was also a good read. My homeschooled son studied Islam last year--it was an eye opener. Islam is not a moderate, peaceful religion. And I'm getting sick and tired of Muslims claiming that it is wrong to kill other Muslims. They've been doing just that for centuries. (Afghanistan is no exception...) Of course, the Koran doesn't mind if Muslims kill the infidels...

...many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Rom. 12:17-21).

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. (Rom. 12:17, NIV)

Sounds to me like an argument could be made from this scripture reference that America's war is un-Christian, and that being a good Christian means being PC.

modern day disciples of Christ are deeply grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were "Christians" in name only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).

Correction: "were deeply grieved, but are coming to understand both the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition in their historical context, which increasingly resembles the present day"

Queen Isabella, Charles Martel, and Jan Sobieski ... bump.

Islam, when followed consistently, is a religion of unmitigated hate.

The sooner we realize that the better.

Sounds Great & Proper for a "Holy Man" in our Western Culture.

How Is It our current "Islamic" tormentors can so THOROUGHLY IGNORE the "Thoughts of Mohammed" you have quoted for us??

SOMEWHERE, here, is a SERIOUS "Disconnect" between the quoted "Teachings of The Prophet Mohammed" & the "Behavior" of his "alleged" "Followers!"
