The Bible Calls Judaism and Islam Liars
By David J. Stewart
1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
The Bible is God's Word. The Bible irrefutably teaches that anyone, whether it be Jew or Gentile, who denies that Jesus is the Christ, is a LIAR. That is what the Bible says.
I love Jews and Gentiles alike. The issue has absolutely nothing to do with one's nationality or heritage. The issue is a Biblical matter. 1st John 2:22 calls all Christ-rejecters, liars!
I am saddened that there are so many liars in the world today. The religions of Islam and Judaism BOTH vehemently deny that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.
1st John 2:23 says that anyone who denies Jesus has also denied God the Father. Most Jews today, who are followers of Judaism, claim to believe in the God of Moses; but the Bible calls them antichrists and condemns them to spend eternity in Hell. I didn't say that, 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 does...
“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.”
Every human being who refuses to obey the Gospel will be cast into the Lake of Fire forever. This is tragic, but Biblical. Perhaps you don't believe in Hell, or think that God is too loving to send anyone to Hell forever' but that is what YOU THINK! That is not what God thinks. Isaiah 55:8, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD.” You had better forsake your heathen ways, humble yourself and turn to the Lord God of the Bible. His precious name is Jesus! Without Jesus Christ, no one can go to Heaven (Acts 4:10-12).
Both Muslims and Judaizers claim to worship God; but the Bible says that anyone who denies Jesus Christ has also denied the Father. Jews who claim to love and worship God the Father, while rejecting God the Son, are deceived. God is angry with them for rejecting His Son (John 3:36). Muslims who speak of God, are not talking about the God of the Bible, because God has a Son, and His precious name is Jesus.
It is tragic that Judaizers and Muslims alike, who are the descendents of Abraham in the Old Testament, would all deny the very Messiah which Abraham believed upon for salvation. Genesis 15:6, “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Amen and amen! And again we read in Romans 4:3-6, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.”
Thus, we are saved solely by Christ's righteousness, which is imputed to us by faith alone. A man's faith is COUNTED for righteousness. We cannot be saved by our own self-righteousness; but rather, by God's righteousness which is in His Son, Jesus. Romans 10:3-4, “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. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” What will you do with Jesus my friend?
Islam openly denies in the Qur'an that Jesus is the Son of God. They deny that He is Christ. Judaism denies Jesus as their Messiah. Judaizers today, just as Muslims, are looking for a savior to return. Unfortunately, the savior they are looking for, and will wholly embrace when he comes, is the Antichrist. In view of the Biblical teaching that the Antichrist will stand in the temple in Jerusalem (2nd Thessalonians 2:4), it is likely that BOTH the Jews and Arabs will worship the Antichrist in the 3rd temple to be rebuilt in Jerusalem. Whereas both false religions adamantly reject the true Savior, Jesus Christ; they will both eagerly embrace the false savior, the man of sin, the Antichrist, and I believe it will be soon.
Ye Must Be Born Again!
Biblically, no Jew can enter into God's kingdom without being born-again. I do not say this to be unkind in any way, for everyone needs to be born-again, Jew and Gentile alike. The reason why false prophets like John Hagee teach that Jews don't need to be born-again is because Judaism denies the Messiah. That's right, the mainstream Jewish religion of Judaism rejects Jesus Christ completely. They deny that Jesus is the Son of God. God hates Judaism, because they are a bunch of liars according to 1st John 2:22. Islam is also of the Devil, and no Muslim will ever see Heaven who doesn't get born-again.
The Bible is unapologetically clear... Ye must be born again (John 3:7).
Those who attempt to get to Heaven some other way are thieves and robbers (John 10:1,9). If you think you are automatically going to Heaven just because you are biologically Jewish, you are sadly mistaken. You are wrong. If you think following the Mosaic law is going to get you into God's kingdom, then you are wrong again.
The Bible is adamantly clear... Ye must be born again (John 3:7).
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." —Acts 4:10-12
