I touched on this subject briefly in “Letter to Sam Part 2” but now it’s time to elaborate. Half of the world population belongs to either one of these faiths. There’s an estimated 2.2 billion Christians and 1.6 billion Muslims. Many people are under the impression that these two faiths have a lot in common and maybe either faith has a legitimate pathway to eternal life. Also, some might equate allah with God. Both of these statements are false and the only relation islam has to Christianity is through genealogy. There is no gray area with God, the Great I Am. There is only one way to heaven through Jesus. There is only one Holy book ever created which is the Bible.
Let’s start from the beginning. After the flood, Noah’s three sons began to repopulate the earth. Abraham was the descendant of Shem. Abraham and his wife had difficulty bearing children, but the Lord promised that Abraham would be the father of many nations even though his wife Sarah was in old age. After unsuccessful attempts, they agreed to conceive a child through Sarah’s servant Hagar. His name was Ishmael. He is the father of all Arabic people we know today. Because Abraham disobeyed and slept with someone other than his wife whom the Lord promised would bear children, Ishmael was cursed even though his people would become very wealthy and powerful. Sarah finally gave birth to a son named Isaac who begat two sons named Esau and Jacob. Esau foolishly sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of pottage lintels as ridiculous as that sounds. After this act, he began disobeying God by marrying Ishmaelite and Canaanite women, the daughters of men already cursed by God. Jacob becomes the father of Israel while the cursed descendants of Canaan, Ishmael, and Esau intermarry to form the massive diverse muslim population we have today. Through the bloodline of Jacob to David was the lineage of Jesus Christ. After his life, death, and resurrection was the start of Christianity. The apostles spread the Word all over the world. The muslims hate their brothers the Israelites because they are God’s chosen people. This is the explanation to why there is an eternal war between Jews and their supporters, Christians, that won’t end until the Lord returns. You wonder why radical Islamic terrorists target Jews and Christians to be slaughtered. Leaders of many Islamic nations chant “Death to Israel and America.” As Christians we are obligated to stand with Israel no matter what happens for it is written, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed – Genesis 12:3.” Why do you think America is the most powerful nation on earth? As a whole we are followers of the Lord and we stand with Israel.
Back to the subject, from the time after Jesus’ resurrection until 610 AD, The combined triune of Ishmaelites worshipped the moon god baal. Supposedly everything about islam came through Mohamed through divine visions but yet he was already worshipping a pagan idol. The temple for this moon god was built by a Babylonian king named Nabonidus in Tayma, Arabia. Archeologists G. Caton Thompson and Carleton S. Coon discovered inscriptions referring to the moon god as Sin with the title al-ilah Coon pointed out that “The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God.” The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad’s father and uncle had Allah as part of their names” How would it be possible that everything about Islam and Allah came from Mohamed when people had been worshipping this pagan deity for centuries? It’s simple absurd. What’s even more ironic is that the moon is the symbol of the Islamic flag!
Now that we know that Mohamed essentially made up islam and followed a pagan idol, take a look at the text he wrote called the Quran which was not divinely inspired. The Bible is the only divinely inspired book ever created and for language purposes the King James Version is the only inerrant English version. Please refer to my previous post entitled “Do Not Be Deceived” for more details on versions of the Bible. The Quran has many contradictions about all aspects of life. On the origin of human life, here are two conflicting verses: “Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood,” (96:2). “We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape, (15:26). Another contradiction is who the first Muslim was: “And I [Muhammad] am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah in Islam,” (39:12). “And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons, and so did Jacob; “Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then die not except in the Faith of Islam,” (2:132). Finally the last one I’ll cite is whether or not allah permits forcing people to convert to islam: “Let there be no compulsion in religion: “Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things,” (2:256). “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued,” (9:29).
If you can’t trust your Holy text as a muslim to be true, how do you expect to live your life? There are countless other contradictions that prove the text is a fallacy. Therefore, the historical facts about allah as a pagan idol, the modern day baal, coupled with confusion within the quran provides plenty of evidence to factual say that Islam is a false religion. Understand what is true. Understand what is the product of the evil one’s way of deceiving people using false religions. Seek the God of Abraham, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Word.
