The Error of Islam

Jesus, who is Truth, tells us that the Spirit of Truth will lead us into Truth and the Truth will make us free. We are also told in I John 4:1-3 that we are to test the spirits due to false prophets and the spirit of antichrist being present in the world. We must apply this principle to the religion of Islam. You've no doubt heard that Islam is a religion of peace despite violence by the extremists. Is this true? We must test the spirits to see. Before continuing, let me say that this is not a hate article toward Muslims. Jesus died for the Muslims as much as anyone else. However, the false teaching of the Islamic faith must be exposed. Before we get into actual Islamic teaching, let us look at some differences between Islam and what the Bible calls Truth, Jesus Christ.

John 2:11 tells us, "This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory...." This verse gives us the fact that the Messiah performed miracles and that the purpose was to manifest His glory. Remember that the Messiah is a world-wide Messiah, not just the Jewish Messiah. I could be wrong, but I see nowhere in Islamic literature that Mohammad performed any miracles. He is not the Messiah. Jesus Christ is.

Luke 1:26, 27 gives this account. " And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary." It was necessary for the Messiah to be virgin born to avoid the curse of sin. Mohammad was not virgin born, nor did he claim to be.

Hebrews 4:15 gives us this information about the Messiah. "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." The Messiah must be sinless. We will look at the sinful lifestyle of Mohammad shortly.

The Messiah saves. As a matter of fact, He is the only One that can--Acts 4:12, "Neither is salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Islam is based on a system of guidance from Allah where faith and action, belief and practice meet.

Hebrews 1:1, 2 tells us that the Messiah is God's Final Word. "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,..." Muslims look to many prophets including Mohammad while minimizing Jesus.

When Christians show violence they contradict themselves. Matthew 5:44 plainly tells us that we are to love our enemies. When Muslims show violence they are acting according to their faith. Let me say again that Muslims are not the enemy and we are commanded to love them. The enemy is Islam--the teaching.

It may be that many Muslims are not aware of their own teaching, just as many Christians have not studied their Scriptures to know the Truth. Nevertheless, these are the facts.

About Mohammad: "I have been ordered to fight with the people until they say, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'"--Al-Bukhari Vol 4:196

Mohammad was a confirmed warrior. 67 out of the 68 wars of Mohammad were offensive raids. He raided, massacred, and looted civilians without warning.

Mohammad was engaged to a six-year-old girl, but chose to wait to marry her until she reached the age of nine. Up to this time Mohammad was only able to attract a few followers. It was at this point that he supposedly received from Allah the doctrine of Jihad. His followers were now given divine orders to attack those who opposed them. This became a very popular doctrine. It was taught that the only sure way to go to paradise was to die in Jihad. This is not just extremist teaching, but is meant for all those that practice Islam.

About the Koran: These verses taken from the Koran have been paraphrased, but the facts still remain.1. Fighting is obligatory for you...--2:216
2. "Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.:--8:39
3. Slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Those who submit will be well treated well. Those who don't submit will be killed.--9:5, 6
4. Fight against Christians and Jews "until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low."--9:29
5. Islam must prevail, by force if necessary, over all other religions.--9:33
6. Fight the disbelievers and hypocrites. Be harsh with them. They are going to Hell anyway.--9:73
7. Believers (Muslims) must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed, and are bound to do so...but Allah will reward them.--9:111
8. Fight disbelievers who are near you, and let them see the harshness in you.--9:111
9. "When you clash with the infidels in battle, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them...when you (subdue) them, (make them) captives...you are commanded by Allah to continue...Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam."--47:4

The Hadith
1. Ishaq 587 "We will fight until you turn to Islam,...We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. we will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they suffer disgrace."
2. "Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him."--Bukhari Vol. 9, No. 57 p. 45
3. "In the last days...some...will...abandon Islam...wherever you meet them, kill them, for he who kills them shall get a reward on the Day of Resurrection."--Bukhari, 4.808: Ali ibon Abu Talib.

My dear Christian brother or sister, know the truth. it will make you free.

TM,

I'm glad you stopped by, too. It's always great to hear from you!

Quill,

I know of so many "Christians" who think the danger is in just a few extremists and have no idea of what is actually being taught to these people. Yes, it will be exposed for what it is--a lie. Jesus Christ is the Truth. Praise His name!

Michael,

Good to hear from you. I'm finding out that unfortunately many don't understand the facts. We need to to let them know. Pass the word.

Dear lifegate,

It's a touchy subject, but one that needs to be spoken on. Our "Western Culture" and governments in general promote the idea that Islam and violence is a random and isolated thing. This is probably due to interests, and allegiances with countries where this is a sensitive issue. I recently watched a work that contained a wealth of information which echoes the points you give here.

"Islam: What the West Needs to Know"

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-871902797...

In addition to a close examination of the Koran, the life of Mohammad and the history surrounding Islam... there is also an interview with a Christian who once followed Islam. This man was raised and chosen to become a martyr in the way of Jihad. His account of the events and things that happened to him is a candid eye opener.

As you said, Jesus died for the Muslims as much as anybody else. It’s only through the trying of the doctrine of false prophets that we get at the truth. In the case of this former Muslim... knowing the truth did make him free.

“Blessings”

Thank you pastor for another great hub. A lot of information needed today about Islam and the Quran. May we use this information as a way to understand the Islamic believer and pray the Lord's guidance to reveal the Truth in God's love and grace with the intention of bringing light and salvation. Blessings

Great Hub, Lifegate. The truth and THE TRUTH need to be spoken (on both accounts). There is nothing about either one which is to be labeled being "politically correct."

Lifegate, thank you for posting this. Islam needs to be exposed for what it is: a false religion.

I also want to add to the list one of the most important facts evidenced by more than 500 people and that is no prophet or god died and rose from the dead. Not Muhammad, Buddha, Hindu gods or any of the million man-made gods of this world. They all died, were buried, and stayed dead. Only Jesus died and rose from the dead. His tomb was found empty and is still empty.

Muhammad never brought peace but war and death, he was a soldier. Muhammad killed by the thousands and never brought anyone back from the dead. Jesus never fought and although He could take life, He did not kill. Instead Jesus came to give life and brought people back from the dead. Muhammad claimed to be a man, Jesus said He was God and He was the way, the truth, and the life (John 8:24, 8:58, 14:6). Muhammad was a false prophet. Jesus is God and the Truth.

Voted up awesome!

Thanks for the added input--all so true! If only those trapped in Islam could see it. Thanks for sharing.

Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, taught his followers to believe in the God of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus, peace be upon them all, and to believe in them as true prophets, messengers and servants of Almighty Allah. He insisted on ranking all the prophets up at the highest level without any distinction between them, and ordered his followers to say the words, "peace and blessings be upon him" after mentioning their names.

You know when I came to the Lord, light clashed with darkness and I was born in the spirit miraculously. I became a new creature and one in spirit with Him. This could not be possible had Jesus not rose from that grave. People run after gods of this world, but I can tell you no one will be saved by the government, politicians, Mohammad, Confucius, or Buddha. Jesus is the name above all names, and people who have gone to Calvary and repented with a contrite heart and called upon His name and made Him Lord of their life is transformed. Jesus is coming in all His glory soon, and all the people who followed dead gods of this world will weep and wail, and all the world will know who the Living God is. Glory! What an awesome hub, and this truth of Islam's beliefs need to be made known, everything that is hidden will be revealed in the end, what an end time voice you are Pastor. A teaching that needs to be far reaching!

The Error of Islam Reply

add this to the list:

A contrast between Jesus Blessed Be His Name (BBHN) and mohammad the human (TH).

1.) the Birth, Life, Death and Resurrection of JesusBBHN was clearly seen in the Old Testament.

Nothing is seen in the O/T or N/T of mohammadTH. Even the pagan soothsayers and pagans and seers did not mention him.

2.) JesusBBHN was Sinless as it says in Hebrews 4:15.

mohammadTH had sin. in sura 40:55 it says “allah” commanded mohammadTH to repent of his sins. It states nowhere in quran that mohammadTH was sinless.

3.) JesusBBHN has a miraculous virgin birth Is 7:14 and Ma1:20, 21

mohammadTH was a product of natural sexual union between his mother and father.

4.) JesusBBHN performed miracles all the time by the Power of His Father in Heaven. Jo 3:2, 21:25

mohammadTH never claimed one miracle. mohammadTH never performed a single miracle as it says in sura 17:91. He could not even read or write but later on he said the quran was a “miracle” that came from his own mind. He also said that JesusBBHN will come back as the antichrist to apologize for letting the people worship him.

5.) Preached the Love of God Jo 3:16. He was a constant example of Love.

moTH never preached “allah” loved anyone. no amount of love for “allah” was enough. This kind of preaching in mosques plays an important role. (it’s a far stretch to say islam is a religion of love especially when you get into the suras.

6.) JesusBBHN was the Son of God and the Son of man.

moTH was 100% human.

7.) JesusBBHN was one of the greatest speakers. Colleges study the Beatitudes and other works in the Bible. Even Jesus’ enemies paid attention when He spoke. His enemies said that JesusBBHN spoke like no other. Even the world of demons tremble at His Word.

moTH’s speeches were anything but outstanding. the hadith teaches he was confused and lacked beauty and lacked substance.

8.) JesusBBHN was an example of high morality. a He never sinned. b Overcame the temptation of the devil himself. c Never used physical violence. d never instructed the use of force.

moTH however has his own list of nasty things. He did NOT have a high example of morality. He was known for murder, involved in assassinations, adultery, child molestation, incestuous relationships, involved in deceptions.

9.) JesusBBHN taught the Way the Truth and the Life.

mohammadTH forced people to give up their idolatry and convert to islam. All they did was change idols. It’s still idolatry! moTH worshipped the moon god. islam teaches the use of the sword (jihad) and moTH taught the use of polygamy to increase numbers.

10.) JesusBBHN died for us while we were yet sinners.

moTH AND the koran teaches to lie cheat steal and KILL to get things done. Only the first three chapters are of peace. The rest is full of every wicked thing. Like where it says in a couple of places to get a young girl before the age of puberty for added pleasure... the people, after reading the koran, were inspired to make a sign that read, “Behold, Those who say Islam is violent must Die!” Kinda tells it like it is, doesn’t it?

11.) Jesus never took another man’s wife.

moTH took a man’s wife and developed a new law. He said it was “Revelation” that there was no law against taking another’s wife.

12.) JesusBBHN was moral.

moTH was not. He was a child molester. After his wife died, he married Aisha at age 6 (bukhari vol 7, #165). mohammadTH would have epileptic fits and come back from caves. He talked about being demonically possessed. Aisha would also say that “allah” was talking to him at times. “allah” is a false god, specifically a demon spirit. But Aisha remained faith to him. Perhaps out of fear of her life?

13.) JesusBBHN died for our sins, removing penalty of death, released followers from ceremonial laws, cleansing laws, sacrificial laws and dietary law.

moTH died in his sin. He added many things like the cleansing laws, dietary laws and pilgrimages. Plus the 5 pillars of islam. There is also that teaching that a muslim needs to rinse his nose with salt water every morning because the devil would go in and perch. Also that the devil would pee in your ear if you fell asleep in church. That’s pretty nasty of a teaching.

Folks, the Promise was through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Not Ishmael. The LORD did say He would bless the seed of Abraham and look, we now have numbers of muslims around the world. And if you want to get right down to it, the Arabs are not the descendant of Abraham. Muslims cannot trace their lineage back to Abraham. This was a race of people mohammadTH literally created out of nowhere for his own games.

Who did Ismael marry if arabs did not already exist!? There is NO evidence that Ismael went south to mecca and became the father of the Arab race. Remember, mohammad only told of a dream of walking to mecca! All the descendants of Ishmael have NO claim on Jerusalem. The claim that mohammad went there was based on a DREAM! He did not populate the land there. There are well known historical facts that point out there were already cities there! Hello!

14.) JesusBBHN was visually seen ascending into Heaven.

moTH only stated he had a vision of himself ascending into heaven. No proof mohammad stepped foot in Jerusalem!

The muslims teach that if something is not in the koran, it cannot be accepted and believed. NOW HERE THIS... NO WHERE IN THE kORAN DOES IT TEACH THAT ISHMAEL WAS THE PRO GENERATION OF THE ARAB RACE! SINCE IT’S NOT TAUGHT IN THE kORAN, THEY CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!!

I won’t even get into the stupid things the haddith says. Ok, maybe I will. It teaches that moTH said satan lives in the nose at night. that the sun goes down in a pond at night. it orders the drinking of cows milk and urine. that if a fly falls into the soup, don’t worry because one wing has the disease and the other the cure. blah blah blah, much more weak drivel to tell of.

There is an account I came across in class. This is how mohammad would convert people and keep very strong followers. He would bring them in his palace. sit them down to eat all this wonderful food. Give them a certain drug to make them delusional. Tell them he has the power to take them to mecca. Once they would be under the influance of these powerful drugs, he would open this secret door behind him at the table and lead the victims out into the beautiful garden he had. There would be women all over and they would conduct sensual things. As the men came down off of their high, he would get them back to the table and continue a normal conversation. He perfected this. The victims had no clue they were deceived! OF COARSE IF SOMEONE WERE LIED TO AND CONVINCED, THE ONE DOING THE LIES WOULD HAVE VERY FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS!!!

But consider the information above. If you can shake the faith of someone by exposing all the error in doctrine and false practices to bring about the false religion, maybe, just maybe, that person might get Saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ Most High, Blessed Be His Name.

There, now that you know the Truth, you can remain part of the PROBLEM or you can be a solution. Your responsibility.
