Nope, but my point was that Christian belief is that we are saved my Jesus alone. Without him we can't know the father because not one of us is worthy of it. Since we are on the subject I would like to point out how very different Jesus was from Muhammad and other profets. How could they possibly be serving the same God when,
Mohammed was the prophet of war; Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7).
Mohammed promoted persecution against the "infidels"; Christ forgave and converted the chief persecutor (1Timothy
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 practiced FORCE; Christ preached FAITH (John 6:29, 35). Mohammed preached "Death to the infidels!"; Christ prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke
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 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. Also, NO other profit has been named sinless except for Christ noone in the world for that matter.( According to the Bible.) If Mohammed was considered a prophet like Christ then why did he rape many women and kill thousands of innocent people. You never hear of Christ doing anything remotely close to this. Although I respect your beliefs you are aloud to by the Christian way believe whatever you chose because we have free will to chose whatever we believe to be right. But because I believe in Christ, the trinity etc. I cannot let my father be put on the same pedistool as a murderer/rapist and not stick up for him at all. That is my free will.
Are you sure you are not Jerry Falwell posting up, because those are nearly the same things he said on 60 minutes a few weeks back.
Mohammed was the prophet of war
--He never incited war....but did in fact tried to keep peace. Early muslims did participate in wars, but that's hardly being a "prophet of war"
Mohammed promoted persecution against the "infidels
--No....he treated Non-Muslims equal to if not better than Muslims.
Mohammed was the taker of life
Mohammed and his fellow warriors murdered thousands
--I wouldn't call it murder.....if you are referring to wars...then people did die, from both sides.
Mohammed practiced FORCE
--No....He was a man of Peace.
Mohammed preached "Death to the infidels"
Mohammed declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels
Mohammed said the Koran is authoritative only in Arabic, and only in his dialect
--That was the only language spoken in those times in that area of the world.
If Mohammed was considered a prophet like Christ then why did he rape many women and kill thousands of innocent people
--Never did he rape any women
I cannot let my father be put on the same pedistool as a murderer/rapist and not stick up for him at all.
I suggest you give me facts to the questions.....I understand you wanting to stand up for Jesus...I do to, but as a prophet. I obviously don't like the fact you called my prophet a rapist, murderer, taker of life, persecuter, prophet of war.
