Sharing this from Don’s Facebook page. It is an interesting post about Jesus Christ teachings and Muhammed’s teachings.. Thank you Don for posting the truth in love ~
As Christians, we are taught in our Holy Word-The Bible “to speak the truth in love”. That is what I will attempt to do with this post. But first let me share some facts with you regarding just a few of the atrocities carried out by radical Muslim factions in the name of their god-Allah and their religion known as Islam.
-2,996 innocent people murdered in New York, Washington, D. C. and Pennsylvania
-202 tourists in Bali murdered
-2,000 people in an African country murdered over several days
-150 women kidnapped as sex slaves by marauding troops in the name of Islam. Women who refused were murdered.
These are just a few of the atrocities that I could list. All of the actions are condoned by the Koran which is supposedly the word of god as spoken to his prophet, Muhammed.
Let me further share some facts with you about the prophet, Muhammed. It is true that he was a fierce and successful warrior. It is also true that he provided sex slaves for his troops. He also condoned the murder of infidels (as we are called) and the murder of anyone who decided that Islam was not for them. (An act that is condoned today.) Muhammed took a 6 year old child as his wife and consummated that marriage 3 years later. These facts can be found by researching the many biographies written about Muhammed. I got my information from a book entitled, “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” written by Nabeel Qureshi.
Let me encourage you to just read the first 4 books of the New Testament-Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These books of the Bible give you the story of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Compare His ministry and teachings in these books to those of Muhammed as found in the Koran. See which life and teachings resemble the teachings of the true God. If that does not fully convince and you want to continue to believe that Jesus was only a prophet. Then let me ask you this question, which prophet appears to have the better line of communication with God based on their teachings. I hope for your soul’s sake, you will see that it was Jesus.
Once that truth is recognized. Continue studying the Bible and you will be convinced that Jesus was/is more than a prophet. You will find his presence in the first book of the Bible-Genesis. His sacrifice on the cross is prophesied In Isaiah 53. There are over 300 prophesies in the Old Testament that are fulfilled by the life of Christ. The Koran does not question the validity and authenticity of the Torah-The Old Testament.
I share this with all of you in love, hoping that you will test these things and in so doing will find my God and Savior, Jesus Christ. That you will claim Him and help us proclaim His name throughout the world as this is the only way we will stop this madness.
If you have read this completely, I am honored. Thank you. If you will take the time to read the books of the New Testament that I have mentioned here, I know you will be impacted as God’s word does not come back void. Thanks again.
