I got into a rather long conversation with an American Muslim yesterday. It was initiated by that person telling me that Muslims also believe in Jesus. I then shared the truth about my Christian faith and the knowledge I have obtained studying our two very different faiths.
I thought I should put the distinct differences in what I know to be true down in writing for all to share.
The Jesus that we as Christians believe in is not the same Jesus (Isa in Arabic) Muslims refer to and say they believe existed. Christians believe in a Triune Creator God, Father God, The Son of God Who is God in the Flesh the Word Who is Jesus God in the Flesh (human/man) and The Holy Spirit Who is The Comforter and the Person Who empowers us by Jesus Holy Spirit to live daily the Christian life the same Holy Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead. We believe there is One God Who is Three God Persons in One God Who is Spirit.
Muslims believe it is a grave sin to believe in a God who has a son or any children. They say allah is not a father for he has no son. Therefore, the Jesus they refer to in the Quran cannot be the Son of God Who is Jesus our Christian Savior. Muslims do not believe in the Holy Spirit at all either.
*Isa in the Quran *Jesus is not the same person. Isa, the Muslim Jesus, was a fictional man, referred to only as a prophet, a man, or an apostle and NOT the Son of God but simply the son of a woman named *Mary ( *Miriam in Arabic), not the Virgin Mary as the Bible acknowledges Mary. Mary in the Bible is a Virgin who is a human woman chosen by God Himself and miraculously conceives a child in her womb by the mysterious overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, not by the will or act of a human man but by a Holy and pure act of God Himself spiritually and supernaturally.
I’m not going to get into all the differences here and now between the Bible and the Quran for they would take an entire book.
It is however important to note that the Bible was written 640 years prior to the Quran and if one were to analyze properly, with a computer software set up to detect plagiarism, for example, one would find that the Quran had indeed plagiarized large portions of not only the Bible but the Apocrypha as well as other early Christian literature and stories, and not only plagiarized but had added fictional sections to the now maligned Holy scriptures.
So the Quran was written 640 years after the Bible and contains large segments of direct quotes, misquotes and twisted quotes of Holy scripture mixed along with fictional addendums and anecdotal stories of probably Mohammad’s own family life and situations during his personal wars. Or his own initiation and creation of The Jihad.
Please check out this video.
There is no difference between a radical Muslim set to embark upon a violent Holy Jihad and the “normal” everyday moderate Muslims who are here in our Republic of the United States of America.
This truth is stated in their own words in the video.
Please take the 3 minutes to watch/ listen in closely and share profusely.
