“Moslems …..indeed “followers of Christ,” Islam is not a Christ-hating religion as Modern-day Talmudic Judaism is. These men ACCEPT, they do not reject Christ. They are indeed coming to the Father by way of Christ because they accept and love Christ and his teachings. They’re every bit as “saved” as you are because they do indeed believe in him.”
( names have been removed )
Let us look a bit closer at this statement and see if the statement is true?
Lie number 1 : Accept and love Christ and his teachings.
To say that Moslems “accept and love Christ and his teachings” is a joke of the highest calibre. It’s basically a lie. They know and we know they don’t. If they did they would obey what Christ teaches. They don’t obey because they don’t accept what Jesus taught in the Bible. They might pick and choose what fits their theology, but generally reject what the Bible teaches regarding JESUS and his claims. They embrace another jesus and therefore another gospel. It will not be the JESUS of the Bible. The Moslem Jesus is one that is filtered through the Koran rather than the Bible.
1 John 2: 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Rev 14: 12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
At every turn how we choose to except what Jesus claimed and said is the basis upon which we get saved. How can anyone claim to follow Jesus and reject what Jesus said.
Lie number 2 : Islam is not a Christ rejecting religion.
John 15: 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
John 15: 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you
John 15: 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
John 15: 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Because they reject Christ claims on their life they will naturally persecute those who hold to the true Biblical claims of Christ. Jesus made it clear they will persecute Christians because they do not hold to what Jesus taught. If Moslems believed in the real Jesus they would listen to those who speak in the name of Christ.
Lie number 3 : They’re every bit as “saved"
Islam is a works based religion so they cannot be saved. They hope to stand on their own good deeds. Righteous deeds which the Bible makes clear is just not good enough.
They take and make null and void whatever Jesus taught.
Math 15: 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men
John 14: 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
The plain and simple reality is they don’t love and obey his commandments.
The jesus of Islam is not the Jesus of the Bible Their jesus is a man who has nothing to say on any issue. A muzzled jesus who was not the son of his father. They reject his divinity. They reject his sonship. They reject his ministry; They reject what was offered on Calvary. They see a Jesus who is subservient to Muhammad. A Moslem jesus. They reject the words he taught. They even places words in his mouth which he did not speak,. Their Jesus is the product of someone’s imagination. A failed prophet that God had to rescue at the last moment before he was about to be crucified. To say they believe in the Biblical Jesus is a gross misinterpretation because they refuse to obey the words of Jesus. If they did they would have to reject Islam and all its claims. They are trying to establish their own salvation which is not based upon the righteousness of Christ
Rom 10: 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Gal 1: 8-9 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
The real truth: which Moslems can’t face: The true Jesus Continues to Reveal Himself to Muslims in the Middle East
Every day, Muslims listeners of Christian radio and television broadcasts who are curious about Christianity call in to ICC sponsored representatives to talk about Jesus. Here is one of many encouraging testimonies where an ICC sponsored Muslim background believer known as Ahmed (not real name) was able to contact the Muslim and lead him to Christ. Ahmed tells the story of how Mohamed found Jesus:
Mohamed found our number on a satellite television broadcast used to expose Islam and its teaching. Mohamed called and started by swearing and insulting. He was surprised that I was calm and in spite of what he said, I told him that I love him because Jesus commanded me to do so. Mohamed asked; who is Jesus? I said to Mohamed, “it might be hard for you to understand what I am about to tell you, but I will pray for you that Christ will reveal himself to you in a personal way and tell you who is he. If you are serious in your search to find God, you should call upon God and ask him to show you the truth about Christ.”
After about month and half (I was praying for Mohamed every day) Mohamed called and said, “Christ came to me in a dream and said to me; ‘if you want to know God you must know me, and if you want to know me you must know my Words.’ And then He handed me the Bible and told me – ‘my words are in this book’.”
Mohamed was shocked when he woke up to find that the Bible that had been given to him in his dream was in his hands! Mohamed realized that what he saw was more than a mere dream.
On the phone that day, Mohamed gave his life to Christ and became one of His children. The mighty work of God whom I serve keeps me speechless!
The power of the gospel cannot be imprisoned , stopped or squashed. The might of imperial Rome with all its armies could not stop the gospel and neither will Islam. The real Jesus saves souls from a lost eternity. The Jesus of Islam has no such compulsion. The Jesus of the Bible established the legal basis upon which to save the sinner. The Islamic Jesus was a failed prophet and therefore has established NO foundation to save anyone. The Biblical Jesus died to save lost souls as it was predicted in Isiah 53. The Islamic Jesus because he did not fulfil the prophesy is made to look like a false prophet.
