I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST! For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Neither am I ashamed to say there is only one way to the Father, through Jesus Christ. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14)
Jesus said to them:Verily, Verily I say to you, Before Abraham was, I Am. John 8:58
Chrislam is once again rearing it’s head, this time in the Bible Belt. I was shocked to say the least when this appeared on my time line in Facebook as a sponsored ad.
Common teaching??? There is nothing common with Jews, Muslims and Christians. Let me repeat that, there is nothing in common with Jews, Muslims and Christians. Period.
Muslims believe there is no God but allah and Mohammed is his prophet. Period. That simple statement of their belief says it all.
But there is more much more.
1. Muslims believe in the Virgin birth of Jesus. But they say Jesus is not the messiah and he didn’t die on the cross. They say his disciples replaced Jesus with another.
1a. Jews don’t believe in Jesus, messianic Jews do, and some Rabbis have believed. But Paul explains this in Romans.
2. Muslims believe that paradise can only be obtained by works and then there is no assurance. The only sure way is to die a martyr. Christ died so we could live.
3. Muslims say that God didn’t have a son. Our Bible tells us different.
3a. Jews don’t believe that Christ is God’s son either, but again Paul explains our roots to Jews (Romans 11) and that we are not born of the slave woman, as Ishmael, but the free woman. God gave Ishmael a kingdom, one that would always be at war with its brothers. But was very clear this wasn’t a part of the inheritance by the Jewish people.
These are very simple comparisons but should be enough to prove to all once and for all that we do not worship the same God as Islam. They worship a black stone, they are from Abraham but that’s it. Period. We all know the story of Isaac’s miraculous birth. But God gave mercy to the slave girl & as His word states Ishmael was not a part of Israel’s inheritance. (Genesis 21) (Galatians 4)
Paul’s explanation of scripture to the Galatians should leave no doubt either. But still they say God’s word is wrong. Now, Mohammed traveled extensively as a child hearing scriptures coming into contact with Jews and Christians. So while disturbed by the many God’s worshiped by his people, after his visions in a cave and his dream of traveling to heaven to pray with Jesus and Moses, he set out to unite all God’s into one. Or as scholars say he picked one god. As he believed there was only one god. One problem with this is the twisted Scripture given to Mohammed to memorize by what Mohamed even thought was a demon. But his wife convinced him it was an angel of god, and he was a prophet. The rest is history. Paul even explained this in Galatians 1. 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.
Perhaps that’s why Obama called the Apostle Paul a bigot. He said in an early interview “I can’t accept the idea of hell. I don’t respect the bigotry of the Apostle Paul in the Book of Romans.”
I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ! I am not afraid of man’s opinion of me. I will not face my God without rejecting false Gospel. For if you have the Holy Spirit in your heart, the Spirit that cries “Abba, Father” you will recognize the voice of our Lord, and if you deny Him before men He will deny you before the Father. There are many ways to deny Him but the major way is to deny He is the Christ! The King of Kings, the Son of God, the Great I Am. For John tells us Jesus was present from the beginning of time. (John 1)
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Even Peter gives us an example of who Jesus is. His name IS NOT Issa. As Issa simply means Jesus in Arabic. (Mark 8) And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
We had better get this right. Time is short, you must recognize the false Christ’s (ANTICHRIST ) or you will be lost and hear the words “Away from me, I never knew you.” (Mathew 7)
