What do Islam and Mainline Christianity
Have in Common?
is a very real sense in which Islam and Christendom are very close to complete
fellowship. Evangelicals, the denominations, and even some alleged Fundamentalists
have this in common-- They all have made their own religion.
faith once delivered must be contended for:
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto
you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort
you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto
vast majority of Christians worldwide are content to measure their religion, and
their personal life, by the worst of the ungodly world. They see that wicked men
run to whores, so they only run to good godly hustlers in the church house. They
see that worldly women take all their clothes off, so they take only 80% of their
clothes off for the lust of good godly men. Christian hypocrite men see that wicked
men rip off the company funds, so they only cheat a little on their income tax
standard of Islam is similar. Muslim men would never allow their wives or daughters
to go out uncovered, and they make sure they are modest at all times. These same
men, when out of town on business, will visit whores and sodomite pimps, and they
will always visit restaurants that provide belly dancers. This goes back to Mohammed.
He would not permit the women to go uncovered in public, but he married a nine
year old girl and consummated the marriage at once. This would be seen today as
wicked, but in the prophet, well, it is OK because he was so holy in other areas
of his life.
standard of true Bible believers is far from either the general standards of Christendom,
from the Pope to many Baptists in the USA, and the Bible believer's standard is
also far from Islam and the filthy ways of Mohammed. Note who the Bible believer
uses as his standard:
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who
for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and
is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that
endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and
faint in your minds.
true Bible believer looks unto Jesus as the standard. This upward look measures
the life of the believer by Jesus and his life as we see it in the New Testament.
The fallen and fake follower of Christendom and Islam looks at himself and the
human examples around him as the standard. In the following verse Paul talks about
the degrading principle of measuring ourselves by ourselves and those around us
instead of the rule of God:
2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the
number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring
themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to
the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even
is why Osama bin Laden is approved by nearly all Muslims. There is nothing in
the teachings of Mohammed and the Koran which approves or disapproves of what
Osama did. So, the best Muslim can rejoice at the death and suffering in the World
Trade Center. Did not Mohammed exalt Jihad in the Hadith. The number of Hadith
on Jihad is greater than any other subject in the Hadith.
is the lowest form of religion on earth. The most devout Hindu is not asked to
change one lust or sin in his life. If he piles up more Karma (bad debt in the
divine ledger) than he performs Dharma (good deeds on the other side of the ledger),
he can simply laugh it off and assume he will have another of the 12,000 cycles
of reincarnation which the Hindu must endure. No Hindu knows where he is in the
12,000 reincarnations, so he can live like the devil, yet he only has to assume
that he may come back at a lower level than he is right now, and he will have
many chances to work his way to the Brahman mind. This is the ultimate destination.
Everything in Hinduism is based on me gratifying myself as I work my way to my
final destiny. This works its way out in the terrible manner in which Hindus treat
each other. Husbands are almost all bisexual, and their wives must endure the
most demeaning marriage relationships, and when the husband is away, the mother-in-law
treats the wife like so much rubbish. This results in many suicides by Hindu wives.
If they do not kill themselves, their husbands will arrange a "kitchen fire"
to kill them so that the husband can find a new fresh sex pot for a new wife.
This is the rule, not the exception.
Mahatma Ghandi was the classic hypocrite. He talked and seemed to promote peaceful
resistance and living in harmony. He talked about people being kind to one another.
Yet, this filthy scum of the earth went to South Africa in his early adult life
for the sole purpose of killing Zulus on behalf of the British military.
imagine a Muslim in India as he looks at this horrible religion of greed and evil
mannered people. By contrast, the Muslim must treat his wife by certain rules
of consideration. His wife must be modest and protected from the evil of Hindu
lusting eyes. The Muslim does not pass by the beggars in the street and console
himself that the beggar must work off his bad Karma by suffering, so there is
no need to give him alms. The Muslim gives alms out of a certain genuine motive
of wanting to help and be kind and fair. The Muslim will not buy a dead animal
to butcher and sell the meat to local Christians as the Hindu will. The Muslim
treats the Christians the same way he treats anyone else. The Muslim will not
sell his wormy candy to the children of low caste people. The Muslim will throw
the candy away.
having seen HIMSELF in comparison with HIS HINDU NEIGHBOR, don't you see how the
Muslim thinks very well of himself. He has rearranged his human nature so that
he performs, and I believe sincerely, many acts of religious zeal on a vastly
higher plain than the filthy Hindu. The problem is, the standard of the Muslim
is his own definition of goodness, and the definition of a prophet from Mecca
in 625 AD. Allah is far away and very impersonal. The sayings of a man named Mohammed,
and the sincere efforts of the man himself are the highest his religion ever rises.
to Paul speak of the inner nature of a saint to whom he wrote a letter:
1:4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging
of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
see, the key was that all of Philemon's inner qualities were founded in Jesus
Christ, not himself, and not in Paul's zeal for religion.
does the Bible say about those who make rules and religious declarations which
are contrary to the written Word of God and Jesus Christ?
16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences
contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they
that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good
words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
most sincere sayings and acts of Mohammed are defective, for he failed to look
to Jesus Christ as the author of true religion:
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher
of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
time goes on, and as the end of the Age of Grace approaches, the world church
and Islam will come more and more to see things the same way. The ground of their
deepest and most sincere religious zeal will be 100% based on their own human
natures. Many will have standards which are much higher than the wicked men around
them, but the religion will still be man made. In this, all religions on earth,
including Judaism, are equally defective. Even men like Billy Graham have been
talking about how God will not reject a sincere Buddhist, and Jack Van Impe is
redefining salvation to accept the process and works religion of the Roman Catholic
me talk about one example crass religious mockery by alleged Christians. In the
area of war and Jihad, the alleged Christian community, Anglo-Saxons in particular,
can talk of peace so grandly, but when the opportunity to pound Bosnia or Iraq
is made reasonable, the power and might expended is awesome. The most narrow Fundamental
Baptists will wave the flag, and they will scream for blood, never realizing that
they are scheduled to spend 1000 years soon in the Kingdom of Messiah in which
no war will be permitted.
Jews with their bloody Judaism are not far behind. Almost all the leaders of Israel
since 1948 have the blood of British troops and Arab people on their hands-- the
Zionists killed Arabs from day one as they wrested the land back into their own
grip. And, alleged Christians like Jerry Falwell and Marv Rosenthal will tell
you the blood shed is just great because God wants the Jews back in the land.
Never mind that this is NOT part of the Age of Grace promise. Messiah is to do
this, and not with the violence of Zionist supremacy.
the true Bible believer must stand apart from the folly of looking at those around
him and measuring himself by their puny little standard. The rantings of the mad
Mullah of Calgary and of Ahmed Deedat in South Africa are not far from the rage
of alleged Christians in the USA as they call in hate for the blood of Muslims
in the Middle East. The message comes from hard shelled KJV only Baptist preachers.
It must be God's will, right? Maybe the message is counterfeit-- did you ever
wonder? Look here:
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is
transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if
his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end
shall be according to their works.
walk carefully dear Bible believer, and look unto Jesus for your zeal and convictions:
Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for
the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have
compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them
out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
you looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life to take root
in the hearts of Muslims, even those who hate us? If not, you are not born again.
You are an alien to the life of Jesus Christ as he lived it in his time on this
earth. Robert Morey has published a book which exposes many of the evil matters
of Islam. But, there is no Gospel in the book. Morey could not care less if all
the Muslims went to hell. He is Reformed and Reconstructionist, and the words
of a man, John Calvin, rule Morey's heart. So, the man has no zeal to see the
mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ take place in a Muslim's heart.
have mercy on you poor fools who live with a self-exalting religion-- a cheap
religion-- a mongrel religion hatched in hell. You need to repent and be converted
and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. How can I be so bold? I happen to know that
Jesus Christ does NOT birth self-love, and that is the chief doctrine of all religions.
Please repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even
in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on
him shall not be ashamed.
Islam and mainline Christianity have this in common-- They are both man made religions
designed to make the follower feel sincerely fulfilled in his zeal to make a good
show of his life. But, they never look up and see Jesus Christ. I have to conclude
that soon both religions will run together in perfect harmony-- the harmony of
