The greatest victory in life is the victory over self
Our President has repeatedly referred to the Koran as “Holy” and I have only heard one reference by him about the Bible. It is quite strange that a man who claims to be a Christian would refer to the Koran as “Holy.” I have serious questions about the actual belief system of President Obama. I would like to believe he is a Christian, however, there is more evidence to prove he is a Muslim, and especially when he refers to the Koran as “Holy.”
In my research, I found copious amounts of material where the Koran is pitted against the Bible. For example, in the most important areas of the life and being of Jesus Christ. I also found so many attacks on the crucifixion of Christ and could not believe the flimsy, wreckless and careless freedom taken in “proving” that Jesus Christ was never crucified and on top of that, the Bible was used to “prove” it never happened.
We must agree on this: Were it not for the Bible, Muhammad would not have a guideline for “his” Koran. Fact is, he believed in a historical Jesus, and believed He was a “Prophet.” In 1 Corinthians 13:8 we see from the Bible that “prophecies…shall fail.” That means, that after the Word of God was completed, there would be no more prophets because there would be no more “prophecies.” Muhammad’s Koran fails that test and violates that Scripture.
It would be eye opening to google Muhammad and read the historical facts about the man behind the Koran. This man found what he thought was the “one true religion” in his meditations in caves around Mecca, however, it is evident that the Bible was used and abused to a great extent. For example, He cites Gabriel speaking to him and calling him “the Prophet of the Lord.” Another oddity is that he was plagued with dreams, visions and trances, and thoughts of suicide, but it was his wife who convinced him that they were of a divine nature. This all started in his youth while he was in the care of another woman, who thought he was plagued with demons.
Surat al-Taubah 9:29 “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah or the Last Day, and forbid not tht which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the religion of truth, until they pay the tribute, being brought low.”
Sura 4:136 (Al-Nisa) “O believers, have faith in Allah and His Apostle, in the Book He has revealed to His Apostle, and in the Book He formerly revealed (the Bible). He that denies Allah, His angels, His Scriptures, His apostles, and the Last Day, has strayed far from the truth.”
To be continued…
I cannot give credit to some of the text and quotations given here. I have researched the subject of the Holy Bible and the Quran in depth, and have found the subject to be mind-boggling. I have found plagiarizing to be the norm and contradictions galore. The Koran saying one thing in one place and another thing in some other place. I have found claims to the authenticity of Jesus, yet attacks on Jesus. Claims that the former Scriptures are true, yet claims that they are corrupt. I have found quotes from Muslims concerning subjects that condemn even the founder of Islam and incriminate him as under the sway of demons/Satan himself. Even Muhammad himself confessed that Satan influenced him. I have read copious amounts of verses from the Koran that are contradictory and most assuredly, many Biblical texts that are re-written and re-interpreted to apply to Muhammad. I wish I could give an extensive overview of the subject, however, that is impossible at this time. Suffice it to say, THE KORAN IS NOT A HOLY BOOK, BUT A FABRICATION TAKING MANY LIBERTIES TO INCORPORATE AND CORRUPT THE BIBLE AND ITS GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT THE ONE TRUE GOD AND THE PLAN OF SALVATION THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, THUS CREATING A NEW, FALSE RELIGION THAT DAMNS MEN‘S SOULS TO HELL.
According to Mohammed, Islam came into existence when Allah dictated the Qur'an, word for word, through the angel Gabriel, to Mohammed. If the Qur'an was dictated by an angel, it was not dictated by the angel Gabriel, it was dictated by the fallen angel Lucifer, who is also known as Satan, or the devil. (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)
Islamic tradition states that Mohammed initially thought that he was demon possessed, and contemplated suicide. Islamic scholars including, Ibn Ishaq, actually acknowledge that Satan spoke through Mohammed in the Qur'an, verses 17:73-75, and verses 22:52-53. These passages are known as the Satanic verses. After Salman Rushdie wrote concerning these Satanic Verses of the Qur'an, Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini posted a one-million dollar reward for the murder of Salman Rushdie.
"The author of the Satanic Verses book [Salman Rushdie], which is against Islam, the Prophet, and the Koran, and all those involved in its publication who were aware of its content, are sentenced to death. I ask all Moslems to execute them wherever they find them." - Ayatolla Ruholla Khomeini 1900-1989
"The essence of his (Mohammad's) doctrine was violence and lust: to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature" - John Quincy Adams 1767-1848
The devil stole the writings of Judeo-Christianity, claimed the human lineage of Judeo-Christianity as the human lineage of Islam, substituted Ishmael for Isaac, and substituted himself for God. Islam was specifically designed by the devil to damn the descendants of Ishmael! The devil has used the hatred that the descendants of Ishmael have for the descendants of Isaac, to damn the descendants of Ishmael!
The devil twisted the writings of Judeo-Christianity, and added passages for deceiving, lying, stealing, and murdering; the devil then put forth through Mohammed, this conglomerated cacophony of lies, now known as the Qur'an.
"An error is the more dangerous the more truth it contains." - Henri-Frederic Amiel 1821-1881
"He said likewise
That a lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies,
That a lie which is all a lie may be met and fought with outright,
But a lie which is part a truth is a harder matter to fight." - Alfred, Lord Tennyson 1809-1892
"I studied the Qur'an a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself." - Alexis de Tocqueville 1805-1859
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property-either as a child, a wife, or a concubine-must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread through Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science-the science against which it had vainly struggled-the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome" - Sir Winston Churchill 1874-1965
"Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind." - John Wesley 1703-1791
The foundational teaching of Judaism is to Love God, Love your fellowman, and Love yourself (Deuteronomy 6:5, Leviticus 19:18).
The foundational teaching of Judeo-Christianity is identical to the foundational teaching of Judaism; Love God, Love your fellowman, and Love yourself (Matthew 22:37-40).
Although sometimes NOT practiced, the foundational teaching of Islam is to steal, and kill, and destroy.
"Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men's hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path." - Qur'an 48:18-20
"Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers in fight, smite at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly on them; thereafter is the time for either generosity or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens...But those who are slain in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost." - Qur'an 47:4
"Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them captive, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." - Qur'an 9:5
"O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed." - Qur'an 9:73
"Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know." - Qur'an 8:60
Since the inception of Judeo-Christianity, when it was socially permissible, the "Born Again" Children of God have always been persecuted. Since the inception of Islam, when it was possible, the Muslims have always been persecutors.
Since the inception of Judeo-Christianity, the "Born Again" Children of God have consistently been peaceful. Since the inception of Islam, the Muslims have consistently been terrorists.
Note from Pastor Humphries: This does not mean all Muslims are terrorists; however, it is true that the Koran promotes terrorism.
There are many web sites that give a thorough expose’ of the subject, by many Arabs who have received Jesus as LORD and SAVIOUR.
The Koran is heavily influenced by the HOLY BIBLE, and yet every tenant of the Christian Faith is attacked by Islam.
Jesus said, “I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE; NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY ME.” John 14:6
Yet the Koran teaches that Jesus did not die for our sins and was a prophet like Mohammad. It that were the only contradiction between the Holy Bible and the Koran, that alone would be enough to condemn it as a fraud.
Acts 4:12 states, “NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER: FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.”
It is impossible to believe both the Koran and the Holy Bible. It is either or, but not both!
