I have read all the above suras in my German Koran and got somewhat shaken and shocked again how the Koran rejects the divine sonship of Jesus Christ. Besides, I have read an old sermon of the German prophet Dr. Martin Luther. I am aware that we do not live in the same time like Luther, and it is not possible to transfer a sermon of Luther 1:1 into our time. However, I am a little concerned about the strong rejection of Christianity by the Koran or Islam. I would not feel secure in an Islamic state. There is a big problem: an Islamic state may be friendly to a Christian state at the moment but by the influence of the Koran every Islamic state can become a roaring lion any moment. The Koran is a “little” ambivalent (a proof that it cannot be a Holy Scripture) about the handling of Christians by Islamic Societies. By some suras the Christians are appreciated and by some other suras the Christian are condemned. You will agree with me that every reasonable man makes a worst case calculation considering any issue containing a risk.
What about sura 9, 30?: “And the Jews say: ‘Uzair is the son of Allah.’ And the Nazarenes say: ‘The Messiah is the Son of Allah’. This is the word of their mouth. They talk like unbelievers. ALLAH SHOULD KILL THEM! How ignorant they are!”
Isn’t it fun? Muhammad wants Allah to kill Christians (Nazarenes). “What a highly lovable man Muhammad is.”
Nevertheless, I want to keep on loving my Moslem neighbours, workmates etc. Concerning Islamic States and Islamic teachers (Imams): I will be wary of them, and think nobody will blame me for that.
Be commended to the triune God,

Meanwhile, I have realized that we should be somewhat reserved when we have to deal with Muslims no matter if it is an ordinary Muslim or a Muslim leader. Every Muslim deserves very harsh criticism. This has nothing to do with hateful fanaticism on our side. Yet, we cannot ignore that the Muslims honour a man, Mohammad, who was an outspoken criminal. The Muslims put themselves a bit outside the civilized world because they honour a man as divine prophet who was a criminal, who was evil, who has shed plenty of innocent blood. This is violation of reason who tells us that an evil criminal can never be a prophet of the good God. Muhammad had actually deserved that his remembrance is whipped out from the memory of mankind. We must let them feel that we cannot fully accept them because their ongoing abnormal behaviour cannot be tolerated. In fact, the Muslims worship the devil by honouring Mohammad.
Of course, if a Muslim is ready to swallow our harsh criticism, then he can proceed and pursue the purpose of becoming a believer in Christ.
