Introduction: Although I sharply criticize the Islamic doctrine, I love (see note, below) my Muslim neighbours according to Christ’s command. Christianity is the religion of love. Hate is prohibited. Of course, nevertheless we are allowed to check out the sometimes strange beliefs of our neighbours.
I have read the whole Koran once, and I am reading it now the second time. I get more and more shocked about the anti-Christian and anti-Jewish character of the Koran.
First time, when I read the Koran, it became immediately clear that the Koran rejects the Trinity (doctrine of the Trinity is the basic doctrine of Christianity) and the divine sonship of Jesus Christ (also a basic doctrine of Christianity). There is no doubt at all that Muhammad rejects Christianity and Judaism; that is absolutely obvious. Have a look on the following suras of the unholy Koran:
(Note: “Messiah” means Jesus Christ, “People of the Scripture” are Jews and Christians)
Sura 4, Verse 171:
O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.
Sura 5, Verse 72:
They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers.
Sura 9, Verse 30:
And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!
End of the suras.
Everybody claiming Islam would be harmless after he has read the above verses should undergo a medical check of his head.
But the three verses above are not the top of Muhammad’s wickedness.
The crucial malice of Muhammad is his following statement: Jews and Christians are former Moslems having turned apostate. He even claims that Abraham, Moses and Jesus had been Islamic leaders or teachers, which were highly acknowledged by Allah. The pupils of Abraham, Moses and Jesus were actually Moslems, but because they were not obedient to the teachings of Abraham, Moses and Jesus, God degraded them to Jews and Christians.
So, that is without limit; Muhammad calls us apostates. Thus, in Muhammad’s eyes we have no more right to live, and in his eyes we are garbage.
Actually, to understand Muhammad’s crucial malice, you had to read the Koran yourself because the wicked doctrine is somewhat hidden. Maybe the verses Sura 2, V. 87-91 are a hint:
Verse 87: And verily We gave unto Moses the Scripture and We caused a train of messengers to follow after him, and We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs (of Allah’s sovereignty), and We supported him with the Holy spirit. Is it ever so, that, when there cometh unto you a messenger (from Allah) with that which ye yourselves desire not, ye grow arrogant, and some ye disbelieve and some ye slay?
Verse 88: And they say: Our hearts are hardened. Nay, but Allah hath cursed them for their unbelief. Little is that which they believe.
Verse 89: And when there cometh unto them a scripture from Allah, confirming that in their possession – though before that they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieved – and when there cometh unto them that which they know (to be the truth) they disbelieve therein. The curse of Allah is on disbelievers.
Verse 90: Evil is that for which they sell their souls: that they should disbelieve in that which Allah hath revealed, grudging that Allah should reveal of His bounty unto whom He will of His slaves. They have incurred anger upon anger. For disbelievers is a shameful doom.
Verse 91: And when it is said unto them: Believe in that which Allah hath revealed, they say: We believe in that which was revealed unto us. And they disbelieve in that which cometh after it, though it is the truth confirming that which they possess. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Why then slew ye the prophets of Allah aforetime, if ye are (indeed) believers?
End of the suras.
So, Muhammad made a mistake. He saw that the practical behaviour of Jews and Christians did not always go together with their faith or what they claimed to believe. Of course, it is regrettable that we don’t behave perfectly always, but this doesn’t authorise Muhammad to judge us like criminals; not at all! All people have ever sinned despite their belief: the Jews, the Christians and the Moslems.
At the time when Mohammed lived, papacy came into being (yet some time before, the Roman bishops had been called popes, but this meant something like daddy because they were really loveable people helping their folk. First after pope Gregory the Great, the meaning of the word pope changed and became the name of people who dared to claim that they would be bishop of all bishops). It is really possible that Mohammed was disturbed by the first wicked popes; besides Phokas was the Byzantine emperor. Phokas was a beast like Nero or Adolf Hitler. He was an ancient Hitler. It is possible that he has committed a lot of crimes in Arabia during Muhammad’s lifetime and Muhammad draw his conclusions about the so-called Christians.
I will still love my Muslim neighbours, but their faith I must reject.
Every Muslim should become a Christian right now!
As I have mentioned above, I am reading the Koran second time. Every now and again I will insert additional malicious statements of Muhammad which I have encountered in the unholy Koran:
Firstly, Muhammad daresays on the cross not Jesus had died but a person who resembled Jesus.
Sura 4: Verse 157:
And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.
( سورة النساء , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #157)
The crucifixion of Jesus is the center of Christianity. Without Christ’s atonement, there would be not forgiveness and no deliverance. We would be hopeless people.
Secondly, guess what is the worst sin in Muhammad eyes? Answer: Incredible, the worst sin in Muhammad eyes is it to believe in Jesus Christ:
Sura 5: Verse 72:
They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers.
( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #72)
Thirdly, Muhammad claims the gospel (part of the the New Testament) would command to slay in the way of Allah. This statement of Muhammad is extremely outrageous. The gospel is a message of love and not of hate. Muhammad perverts the gospel. Muhammad, indeed, was an incarnated devil.
Sura 9: Verse 111:
Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the gospel and the Qur’an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.
( سورة التوبة , At-Taubah, Chapter #9, Verse #111)
Sura 9: Verse 29:
Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.
( سورة التوبة , At-Taubah, Chapter #9, Verse #29)
Interpretation of Sura 9: Verse 29:
“Have been given the Scripture” are Jews and Christians; “believe not in Allah nor the Last Day” are Jews and Christians; messenger = Muhammad; “Religion of Truth” = Islam; “tribute” = tax. Hence, Muhammad commands to conquer Christian and Jewish countries. Muhammad commands aggressive war. At least, he is so “merciful” to allow that people pay a tax instead to convert to Islam.
Fourthly, Muslims are forbidden to be friends of Jews and Christians.
Sura 5: Verse 51 of the unholy Koran:
O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #51)
Note: “O ye who believe” are Muslims.
Note from February 16, 2018
Since I have drafted the article above, I have undergone an evolution. We are always in danger to confuse Christ’s love with human love. Especially when we deal with Muslims, we have to distinguish between Christian love and the love of this world. Actually, Muslims are spiritual criminals. What is their crime? Their crime is that they believe that a murderer, fornicator, thief, robber, liar, heretic, etc. could be a prophet of the God who has made heaven and earth. The Muslims live in a perpetual violation of their human reason; according to sanity and reason it is impossible that the good God should have sent a criminal as his prophet. Because of this crime of intellectual suicide, the Muslims put themselves somewhat outside the civilized world – they cannot expect full respect from civilized people who use their reason. When we meet a Muslim, we have to criticize sharply his faith, which is in fact idolatry. Only on the condition that the Muslim accepts our criticism, we can get in closer contact with him. Once, Jesus Christ, the Lord-God, had to deal with “the Syrophoenician woman”. She was extremely involved in Greek idolatry and had even carried it so far that her daughter had become obsessed by a demon. Note: Jesus indirectly called her a dog (an expression which contemptuously means Gentile). Was that love? Of course was that love because Jesus Christ is personalised love. Everything which Jesus Christ has ever done and will ever do is according to the will of God. Thus, the divine love can mean some harsh treatment (depending on the person) sometimes, but it is never the less true love. The woman got blessed because she accepted Jesus’ harsh criticism. We have to require a Muslims to renounce Islam, Mohammad and the Koran; but that is not yet enough. We also have to tell him that he is under the curse of the original sin, that he is a sinner by birth. From this it follows that he needs redemption, that he needs a redeemer; and that is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Muslims must accept that the are cured by birth and not blessed by their descent.
