During Obama’s campaign he said that he was a Christian. I just don’t get it. Why would any Christian enter a mosque in the first place? This is not the first so called Christian head of state to do this. George Bush during his Presidency visited mosque’s and so has the Pope!
Yet, the koran specifically says that Christians worship a false God…
O people of the scripture, do not transgress the limits of your religion, and do not say about GOD except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was a messenger of GOD, and His word that He had sent to Mary, and a revelation from Him. Therefore, you shall believe in GOD and His messengers. You shall not say, “Trinity.” You shall refrain from this for your own good. GOD is only one god. Be He glorified; He is much too glorious to have a son. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. GOD suffices as Lord and Master (Surah An -Nisa 4:171)
Compare that verse to what John says…
1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
The bible says that whoever denies that Jesus is the Messiah is the antichrist and if you anyone denies that Christ has a father they are also of the spirit of the antichrist:
1Jo 2:22-23 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.
The koran speaks of a completely different Jesus to that of the bible; the koran denies that Jesus has God as His father, it denies that Jesus is the son of God the father. The Jesus found in the koran is a very different Jesus to the one that is found in the bible.
It also says that Jesus was no more than an apostle of God.
The bible however, states that Jesus is part of the triune headship of God. The trinity is mentioned in the Koran but it is condemned.
“The Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, he was no more than God’s apostle . . . Say not “Trinity”: desist: it will be better for you: for God is but one God. GOD FORBID THAT HE SHOULD HAVE A SON!” (4:171)
“Those who say: ‘The Lord of Mercy has begotten a son,’ preach a monstrous falsehood, at which the very heavens might crack…” (19:88-89)
“They say: ‘God forbid that He Himself should beget a son!‘ ” (19:29-)
“They say: ‘Praise be to God who has never begotten a son; who has no partner in His Kingdom . . .’ ” (17:111)
“They say: “(Allah) hath begotten a son!” – Glory be to Him! He is self- sufficient! His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! say ye about Allah what ye know not? Say: “Those who invent a lie against Allah will never prosper.” (10:68-69)
Not only that but the koran denies the Resurrection of Jesus:
The Islamic Jesus was never crucified and therefore did not rise from the dead: ‘And because of their saying (in boast), ‘We killed Messiah Jesus, son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,’ — but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but it appeared so to them the resemblance of Jesus was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not: But Allah raised him up unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is ever all powerful, all wise’ (al-Nisaa’ 4:157-158).
This rips out the very heart of the message of the Gospel and contradicts everything that the New Testament teaches about Jesus.
‘For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received; that Christ (Messiah) died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried and that he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures. … And if Messiah is not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain’. I Corinthians 15:3-4,14.
The bible is very clear about the distinction between Christian worship and Paganism…
1Co 10:20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons.
Just take a look at Webster’s definition of the word Pagan. This definition was written in 1828! You won’t find this definition today in the Webster’s dictionary.
PA’GAN, n. [L. paganus, a peasant or countryman, from pagus, a village.] A heathen; a Gentile; an idolater; one who worships false gods. This word was originally applied to the inhabitants of the country, who on the first propagation of the christian religion adhered to the worship of false gods, or refused to receive christianity, after it had been received by the inhabitants of the cities. In like manner, heather signifies an inhabitant of the heath or woods, and caffer, in Arabic, signifies the inhabitant of a hut or cottage, and one that does not receive the religion of Mohammed. Pagan is used to distinguish one from a Christian and a Mohammedan.
It is important to note that the bible uses the word ‘Pagan’, ‘Heathen’ and Gentile interchangeably.
The bible is also very clear that Christians should not be unequally yoked with unbelievers…
2Co 6:14 Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what portion hath a believer with an unbeliever?
2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you,
If Christians are the temple of God, why on earth would a Christian enter a temple that teaches antichrist doctrine?
