JESUS vs mohammed

Posted on 09/06/2004 12:45:56 PM PDT by ChristianJohn

"Mohammed vs Jesus, the Christ" Comparison of Teachings of Mohammed With Teachings of Jesus From Messengers of Christ Ministries, Andrew Neckar 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 Timothy 4:7).

Mohammed promoted persecution against the "infidels"; Christ forgave and converted the chief persecutor (1 Timothy 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's method was COMPULSION; Christ's 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 Thessalonians 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 (Hebrews 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 (Romans 3:15-17); Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Ephesians 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 (Colossians 2:14-15) and His followers share in that victory (John 16:33).

Mohammed constrained people by conquest; Christ constrained people by love (2 Corinthians 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 (Romans 12:17-21).

Mohammed said the Koran is authoritative only in Arabic, and only in his dialect; The Bible is authoritative in many languages around the world, for God knows all things and can inspire (and preserve) His Word in more than one language.

Mohammed hated music; Jesus and His disciples sang hymns, and the Apostle commanded the Lord's Church to sing. (Matthew 26:30, Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16).

Mohammed allowed that a Mullah, Imam, or Mufti of Islam can be a terrorist and an amoral animal like Osama bin Laden; The Bible requires that a leader in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ must be above reproach, and when this is not true, Christians demand such a fallen leader be removed from leadership. (1 Timothy 3:1-7, 5:19-20).

Islam calls on its followers to observe Five Pillars, while all other aspects of life can be vulgar and not affect the Muslim's prospects in Paradise. The Bible calls on the Christian to submit to the total change of his life by the Spirit of God -- NO area of life and thought is the choice of the follower. (Romans 12:1-2).

The Muslim looks forward to eternity in Paradise where there will be virgins who are used for eternal perpetual copulation.

The Bible believing Christian looks forward to being with Jesus Christ and is delighted with that. (2 Corinthians 5:8).

Mohammed said the witness of a woman was half the value of the witness of a man; and Muhammed said a woman goes to Paradise because she satisfies her husband sexually; The Bible teaches that a husband is to love his wife and be willing to die for her. (Ephesians 5:25).

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 hence" (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" (Romans 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" (Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 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 (Romans 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 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18).

Mohammed considered Christ a good prophet; Christ pronounced (in His statement on many false prophets arising) Mohammed to be a false prophet (John 10:10; Matthew 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).

Islam is geocentric, that is, the whole universe is centered on the Kaaba in the Grand Mosque in Mecca in Arabia, and all Muslims pray facing that direction; Jesus Christ is the center of all Christian worship and fellowship, for He is "in the midst" where his saints meet anywhere on earth. (Matthew 18:20, John 4:22-23).

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

Islam must be received, or you can be killed for rejecting it:

The Faith offered by Jesus Christ is for "whosoever will" to receive, and all men are permitted to reject it. (Revelation 22:17, John 3:16).

Those who leave Islam are killed in most Islamic nations; Those who leave the true Church of Jesus Christ are allowed to do so with no revenge.

Now, is a Muslim submitted to Allah and Islam because he loves Allah? NO!

He dare not leave Islam, and he is loyal purely out of fear.

The true Bible believer is loyal to Jesus Christ purely out of love. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (John 4:19) We love him, because he first loved us.

This concept is 100% alien to Islam -- There is no love in Islam -- Only fear and hate.

Amen! The war on terror is going to continue until Jesus returns and puts an end to it. There is absolutely nothing to stop the spread of Islam, short of His return.

This is so un-ecumenical.
Haven't you heard about "building a civilization of love where all humanity regardless of creed or sexual orientation are treated with equal dignity" "in the spirit of Vatican 2"?
Pope John Paul supports the U.N. under Kofi Annan; shouldn't you?

I loved the post also, it was very good, and I am not even a Christian. I am thankful everyday not to be born in a Muslim country because I would not be allowed to explore the nature of reality like I am in the secular democracy of the United States. I am a pagan and I and all intelligent followers of alternative religions realize that to live in a Muslim country would be our death. Christianity even at it's historic worst is more tolerant then Islam. Sure the Christians brutally murdered and tortured those that didn't agree with them but that was centuries ago. Christianity has the ability to adapt to a changing world but does Islam?

" if Jesus is the Prince of Peace and forgiveness, why does Bush support the death penalty?"

Jesus may very well be the "Prince of Peace and Forgiveness", but he is not the "Prince of No Consequenses for Your Actions."

Don't adherents of Islam worship the god of Abraham?

Not very likely.

Neither the inquisition nor the crusades were atrocities. They have been spun by revisionists into seeming to be atrocities.

They actually do. Muslims accept Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed as their holy Prophets. They think highly of each prophet, and generally aren't supposed to put anyone higher than the other, but Mohammed being the last in line in their faith they seem to emphasize him far more then the others.

Especially considering their holy verse says "There is no God, but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet".

Muslims worship the god of Abraham, Al-ilah. Al-ilah means the god; ilah=ilu=el as in Israel.

"Nothing changes the fact that Abraham was an unholy monster who was willing to kill his own son."

You've got Abraham confused with the average peace-loving Palestinian.

Gee how astonishing.

"Haven't you heard about "building a civilization of love where all humanity regardless of creed or sexual orientation are treated with equal dignity" "in the spirit of Vatican 2"? "

Better yet, I've heard of God's love for all humanity. In His perfect Love, His perfect holiness demands perfect justice wherever His perfect righteousness has been violated by unrighteousness of those He has created.

Christ was made sin for us on the cross by having the sins of the whole world imputed upon Him to suffer that perfect judgment. Even after His sacrificial death for us, Jesus Christ was still found righteous and rose again on the third day.

Those who sin today are still accountable for their behavior and risk judgment without a mediator if they reject faith in Him through Christ.

Those with homosexual orientations, should they not return to Him and resist that orientation also face His wrath. Those who are saved who lapse into sin, view His discipline rather than perceiving His grace. To the post-salvation sinner, his true love might not appear loving, but rather very wrathful in discipline.

Those who reject the Perfect Sacrifice and refuse to allow any faith in the Son are not friendly brethren, however, until they suffer the first death, they also retain an opportunity to return to God through faith alone in Christ alone.

Even while that opportunity remains, criminal behavior may still mandate the death of unbelievers so that those who are destined to come to Christ, but have not been called are still afforded an opportunity to believe.

Mo' was a pedophile, the first Muhammadan psycho killer Jihadist warlord. That's all I need to know. Well, I'm not Christian, but Jesus is a positive figure who did miracles while Muhammad is a killer who healed no one. There are lots of nice, universal love Koran verses from the Meccan period, the beginibng of Mo's career. But once he achieved power in Medina he went full bore Jihadist. And the latter Jihadist verses abrogate (supersede) the peaceful earlier ones.

Anyone willing to take a knife to their child in the name of religious ritual is evil. That holds for Abraham, and it holds for modern-day versions of the "sacrifice of innocents" theology, including but not limited to those who send their kids out to be suicide bombers.

You're a real piece of work. Abraham was God's friend. Oh well... at your present rate of regurgitation you'll gag on your own vomit (read: lies, distortions, and blasphemies) soon enough.

And we don't bomb their "sacred" shrines even when they are full of arms.

The US has too much knee-jerk respect for anything called a "religion" because in the first place we were founded by those who were persecuted for religious practices: separation of church and state, with respect for anything called a "Church."

Back then, they didn't have the example of satanic murder cults posing as religions, so our laws end up being too protective of "religion" in general without any look at the specifics of what people are praying for.

I find it difficult that the God of the Israelites would tell Muslims to kill off the chosen people.

How do you reconcile that?

Abraham was a hundred years old when he had Isaac. Well passed his years of child conception. Now the lord was gracious to Sara as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised. Then she became pregnant and bore a son. Nothing met more to Abraham then his son.
Genesis 22:1 Sometime later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied. And God said, "take your son, your only son, Isaac whom you love and go sacrifice him.

At the end of this story God stopped Abraham from killing his only son Isaac by giving and then testing Abrahams faith.
So in conclusion God is Loving and Merciful.

probably because bush doesn’t follow the bible like most christians do.. im sure that if you ask, the majority of true christians will disagree with the death penalty.

and consequenses are just a small way to teach us that what we are doing, is wrong.

Daniel was a sinner because he didn’t believe completely(even after being saved from the lions den) he says, “O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.” (Daniel 9:8)Fear he had not thou! Daniel saw Jesus (not just in the Lions’ den) also, Micheal (the angel and son of God) spoke directly to him “Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand (ME : Jesus), and to chasten theyself before thy God, thy WORDS were heard, ahd I am come for they WORDS.” Daniel 10:12 (NOT THY MISUNDERSTANDINGS) Be careful what you say to the LORD, he will never leave you!

Well, no, that is not in line with God’s word. Regardless of creed? There is either God through Jesus Christ or not. No other choice exists. There are not a smorgasbord of options, there is truth or lies. Period.

Actually, the truth is Jesus IS God. Mohammed was a prophet of Satan. That is crystal clear due to one undisputable fact - that Mohammed denied Jesus as being the Christ, the Son of God, God in the flesh. Such a denial is of the devil.
