Hostile Contradiction

bible-scrollThe foundational religious text of Islam is the Koran or Quran. It was written in the seventh century A.D. The writings of the Christian Holy Bible were written centuries earlier.

The Holy Bible of Christianity clearly teaches, that Yahshua Jesus is the Son of Almighty God. Perhaps the most famous passage is in John 3:16:

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The first four books of the New Testament, known as the Gospels, go into great detail about the Son of God. He was born of the Virgin Mary. He came to save people from their sins. He did many mighty works, including many incredible miracles. Some of these miracles were walking on water, raising people from the dead, feeding thousands of people from a single boy’s lunch, making the lame walk, bringing sight to blind eyes, healing lepers and many others. He knew no sin. He chose twelve apostles to carry on His work. He willingly died a cruel death on a Roman cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind. On the third day, He arose from the dead. Eyewitness accounts of these events are recorded in the New Testament.

Centuries later, on the Arabian peninsula, a man named Muhammad spoke these words:

“And they say: the Beneficent God has taken to Himself a Son. Certainly you have made an abominable assertion. The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces, that they ascribe a Son to the Beneficent God. It is not worthy of the Beneficent God, that He should take to Himself a Son.”

These words are recorded in Koran 19:88-92.
Whoever inspired the Koran purposefully and viciously attacks Christianity in this passage. Notice the words in Koran 19:88 “and they say.” The Koran is specifically calling out Christians. Notice the words “abominable assertion.” The Koran is in the most hostile of terms saying that what the Christians say is abominable.

Consider this. The Christian Bible says clearly that Yahshua Jesus is the Son of God. The Koran says clearly that God does not have a son. We have an exact contradiction. This is proof that the God of Christianity and the god of Islam are not the same god. Christ said that His kingdom was not of this world, but Islam is bent upon world conquest, not only spiritually, but also politically and by force if necessary. These two world views are mutually exclusive, and incompatible. It is impossible that they are both right.

The well-being of your and my soul completely depends on wisely searching out the truth and then aligning ourselves with the truth. It is foolish to play the game of “all religions are a pathway to heaven.” It is also foolish to not search out the truth with all of your heart. The prophecies in the Old and New Testament have never failed. Christ demonstrated His divinity with many infallible proofs. Josh McDowell has written two wonderful books that clearly make a compelling argument to put your faith in Christ for eternal life. The book More Than a Carpenter and its parent work Evidence That Demands a Verdict are marvelous resources for carefully weighing the validity of Christ’s claims if you are interested. Remember, after we die there is the judgment, and we will all participate in that event.

    Startling information! U dont have to read very far in the koran to find they are hostile to anyone who does not convert to their belief system.
