You can believe that only Jesus gives salvation is truth. “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
God loved us while we were still sinners. What a comfort. Tell all your friends!
There is good news—there is a path back to God, but only Jesus gives salvation! There is truth! That Jesus gives salvation is truth also means salvation is found in no one else, nor any other holy book.
We are all sinners, and the consequence of sin is death—not just physical death, but eternal separation from God. Yet the true God loves us and wants to bring us back to him.
GOD’S ATONING SACRIFICE SHOWS HE IS JUST AND LOVING AT THE SAME TIME
The Lord who is revealed in the pages of the Bible does not allow sin to go unpunished. He does not “leave the guilty unpunished.” God does not simply wipe the slate clean when He forgives a person. The true God’s forgiveness is costly; the only question is who will pay the cost.
The spirit appearing to Mohammad claiming to speaking for “God” in Islam has a dark and different outlook. Salvation in Islam is an uncertain concept at best, and unobtainable in reality.
Isaiah 5:16 (NIV)
But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice, and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.
Numbers 14:18 (NIV)
The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.
Various views about God exist in our culture, but if there is one belief that people hold in common across religious lines, it is that “God is love.” This would not be a problem if the belief that God is love were defined by biblical content, for Scripture does indeed reveal that God is a loving God. Not only is the true God loving, God first loved us while we were still sinners. In Romans 5, the Bible clearly says: “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
1 John 4:19 (NIV)
We love because he first loved us.
Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV)
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
At the same time, the Apostle Peter tells us the true God also tells us that He is merciful, “not wanting anyone to perish.” He wants to justify His people, to declare them righteous so that they can live forever. And yet He must do so in a manner that preserves His justice.
2 Peter 3:8-9 (NIV)
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
IN ISLAM THE QUR’AN SAYS ALL MUSLIMS WILL FIRST ENTER THE HELLFIRE
Rejoice that the Qur’an is not true! Verses 19:71 and 11:119 are very troubling.
Islamic Hadith and the Qur’an assert that a host of Muslims will end up in hell, and even experience torment while there, even though they genuinely believed that there is no god besides Mohammad’s spirit deity. How long the faithful Muslim will wait in hell is not specified. The Qur’an indicates it is Allah goal to fill hell with humans and angels (“jinn”).
It is the inevitable decree of your Lord that every one of you will be taken to hell.
Except those on whom your Lord has mercy—for that reason He created them. The Word of your Lord is final: “I will fill Hell with jinn and humans, altogether.”
THE QUR’AN FOCUSES ON PAINFUL HELLFIRE; THE BIBLE ON GOD LOVING HIS CHILDREN
Next to the doctrine of monotheism and denying Jesus is the Son of God, the doctrine of hell and punishment receives more attention than any other doctrine in the Qur’an—maybe even more than monotheism. The Qur’an is unbalanced in its almost constant emphasis on fire, torment, and eternal punishment. In contrast Jesus said: “Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.” (Revelation 21:7)
The Qur’an contains 114 surahs, or chapters, and the word “hell” occurs 102 times in 54 surahs (47%). The word “fire” is often used in place of hell, or combined to the word “hellfire.” “Fire” occurs 161 times in 65 surahs (57%). “Punish/punishment” occurs 115 times in 43 surahs (37%). “Doom” occurs 215 times in 62 surahs (54%), and “painful” is used 68 times in 48 surah (42%). This means that the Qur’an refers to hell, fire, doom, pain and punishment in 92 of its 114 surahs—which is 80 percent of the Qur’an!
SALVATION IN ISLAM IS UNCERTAIN AND NONEXISTENT
ALLAH REQUIRES YOU TO FIRST LOVE HIM
The spirit that revealed the Qur’an to Mohammad has a much different view on mercy, love and salvation. The Bible says the true God first loved us while we were still sinners. The Qur’an is much different. In Islam, Allah only loves those who first love him and obey the prophet Mohammad.
Allah does not love any sinful ingrate.
Mohammad Say, “If you love Allah, then follow me, and Allah will love you, and will forgive you your sins.”
So that Allah may reward those who have believed and done the righteous deeds out of His bounty. Indeed, Allah does not love the ungrateful.
The Qur’an also states that Allah will only be merciful to those who first obey him.
And obey Allah and Mohammad, that you may obtain mercy.
They perform regular prayers, and practice regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger Mohammad. These—Allah will have mercy on them.
Stay away from the teachings from the False Prophet Mohammad. Jesus said to flee the great city Mecca.
Much more prophecy has been fulfilled than most people understand. Our job is not to focus too much on fulfilled prophecy–but rather tell as many people about the Gospel–while we still have time.
Spread the Gospel
Keep praying for the Holy Spirit to allow Muslims and Jewish people to learn the truth of Jesus while they still have some time.
