Islam rejects the idea that Jesus is God.
Islam rejects the idea that Jesus is God. They deny the divinity of God and do not believe that Jesus came to die on the cross, for our sins. Islam teaches against the virgin birth of Christ. Muslims believe that Jesus was sentences to death. However, Islam teaches Christ was not crucified. They reject the death burial and resurrection of the Christ. The Koran rejects the truth that Jesus died as a propitiation for the sins of man. The teaching of Mohammad preach against the Triune nature of God. The teachings of Christianity counter the claims that Muslims reject. For example Christians believe in the Bible's teaching of Jesus Christ and the stark contrast to the divinity that Muslim's place on God's divine nature. Christian's believe in the Virgin Birth of Christ. Therefore, there is an extreme fundamental difference between Christianity, and Islam. Islam claims Muhammad is a prophet; Moses gives the qualifications of a prophet and the Muslim prophet does not meet the standards of an authentic Biblical prophet. The Koren teaches about Moses, yet overlook the fact Muhammad is fraud. "I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him." [Deuteronomy 18:17-19]" *Muhammad was not raised up from amongst the Israelites. *God did not put His words in the mouth of Muhammad. The founder of Islam talked against the scriptural illustration of God's divine nature. *Islam rejects that Jesus is God in the flesh. *They deny that Jesus was born of a virgin. *They consider the Trinity to be blasphemy. *God has not required anything of a false prophet because he doesn't speak for the Biblical God Yahweh. This Biblical passage specifically calls Muhammad a false prophet. Islam and Christianity are nothing alike and we need to understand their views do no represent the God we serve. There are some Christians that claim Islam and Christianity are alike. This is a small, but telling look Muslims do not believe the same things that we as believe in the Biblical teachings of Christ. (Sample of a dissertation I am working on). Work Cited. 1). *John Oakes, PhD. Muhammad fulfills Deuteronomy 18:17-19 and is the prophet who will come, not Jesus. What do you say to this?
