Mohammed said to the masses, "Convert or die!";

Mohammed was swift to shed blood (Romans 3:15-17);

of many (Ephesians 1:7).

cross (Colossians 2:14-15) and His followers share in that victory (John
Mohammed constrained people by conquest;

Modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Mohammed and carry out their
despicable atrocities in the name of his god;
Christians derive their inspiration from the
One who said, "Blessed are the peacemakers" (Matthew 5:9).
Modern day disciples of Mohammed respond to the terrorist attacks by cheering
in the streets;
Modern day disciples of Christ are deeply
grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were "Christians" in name
only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).
Many Muslims are peaceful and peace-loving because they do not strictly follow
the teachings of their founder;
Many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving
because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Romans
Mohammed said the Koran is authoritative only in Arabic, and only in his
The Bible is authoritative in many languages
around the world, for God knows all things and can inspire His Word in more
than one language.
Mohammed hated music;
Jesus and His disciples sang hymns, and the
Apostle commanded the Lord's Church to sing. (Matthew 26:30, Ephesians 5:19,
Mohammed allowed that a Mullah, Imam, or Mufti of Islam can be a terrorist and
moral animal like Osama bin Laden;
The Bible requires that a leader in the
Church of the Lord Jesus Christ must be above reproach, and when this is not
true, Christians demand such a fallen leader be removed from leadership. (1
Timothy 3:1-7, 5:19-20)
Islam calls on its followers to observe Five Pillars, while all other aspects
of life can be vulgar and not affect the Muslim's prospects in Paradise.
The Bible calls on the Christian to submit to
the total change of his life by the Spirit of God-- NO area of life and
thought is the choice of the follower. (Romans 12:1-2)
The Muslim looks forward to eternity in Paradise where there will be virgins
who are used for eternal perpetual copulation.
The Bible believing Christian looks forward
to being with Jesus Christ and is delighted with that. (2 Corinthians 5:8)
Mohammed said the witness of a woman was half the value of the witness of a
man; and Muhammed said a women goes to
Paradise because she satisfies her husband sexually; The Bible teaches that a
husband is to love his wife and be willing to die for her. (Ephesians 5:25)
Mohammed called upon his servants to fight;
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world;
if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight . . .but now is
My kingdom not from here" (John 18:36)
Mohammed ordered death to the Jews (see A.Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad,
Oxford University Press , p. 369);
Christ ordered that the gospel be preached
"to the Jew first" (Romans 1:16).
The Koran says, "Fight in the cause of Allah" (Qu'ran 2.244);
The Bible says, "we wrestle not against flesh
and blood" and "the weapons of our warfare are not carnal" (Ephesians 6:12; 2
The Koran says, "Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them" (Qu'ran
Christ said, "Preach the gospel to
every creature" (Mark 16:15).
The Koran says, "I will inspire terror into the hearts of unbelievers" (Qu'ran
God inspires His terror into the
hearts of believers (Isaiah 8:13).
The Koran (Qu'ran) is a terrorist manual which condones fighting, conflict,
terror, slaughter, and genocide against those who do not accept Islam;
The Bible is a missionary manual to
spread the gospel of peace to all the world (Romans 10:15).
Mohammed's Mission was to conquer the world for Allah;
Christ's mission was to conquer
sin's penalty and power by substitutionary atonement (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1
Mohammed considered Christ a good prophet;
Christ pronounced Mohammed to be a
false prophet (John 10:10; Matthew 24:11).
Mohammed claimed that there was but one God, Allah;
Christ claimed that He was God (John
10:30-31; John 8:58-59; John 5:18; John 14:9).
Islam is geocentric, that is, the whole universe is centered on the Kaaba in
the Grand mosque in Mecca in Arabia, and all Muslims pray facing that
Jesus Christ is the center of all
Christian worship and fellowship, for He is "in the midst" where his saints
meet anywhere on earth. (Matthew 18:20, John 4:22-23)
Mohammed's Tomb: OCCUPIED!
Christ's tomb: EMPTY!
Islam must be received, or you can be killed for rejecting it:
The Faith offered by Jesus Christ is
for "whosoever will" to receive, and all men are permitted to reject it.
(Revelation 22:17, John 3:16)
Those who leave Islam are killed in most Islamic nations;
Those who leave the true Church of
Jesus Christ are allowed to do so with no revenge.
Now, is a Muslim submitted to Allah and Islam because he loves Allah?
He dare not leave Islam, and he is
loyal purely out of fear.
The true Bible believer is loyal to Jesus Christ purely out of love.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in
love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that
feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved
This concept is 100% alien to Islam-- There is no love in Islam-- Only
fear and hate.
