It is a common practice of liberal “christians” to spread hatred with a statement that pretends to be based on “tolerance” and “love” for Muslims. The statement in question is a lie that is designed to damn souls to Hell. The statement is that “Christians and Muslims pray to the same one God.”
No, we do not, because of one critical distinction between Christianity and Islam. Muslims explicitly deny the divinity of Jesus Christ. Christian doctrine holds that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and is equal with God. (Philippians 2:5-11) The God of Abraham is the same God who died on the cross for our sins.
Because Muslims explicitly deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, Islam is just one more false religion in a long line of false religions, from Cannanite “gods” such as Moloch to the Greek and Roman pantheons and cults like Jehovah’s Witnesses today. All of these have one thing in common: they constitute demon worship. (See 1 Corinthians 10:20-21.)
Am I wrong about the exclusivity of Christian doctrine? If so, I invite anyone to show me from the Bible where I am wrong. Until then, as Martin Luther said: Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me.
A typically childish response would be that there is “nothing is Scripture regarding Islam.” How silly. There is nothing in Scripture about worshiping your own feces either, but it is still idolatry – and idolatry is explicitly condemned throughout scripture. God does not need to explicitly list every single possible false religion throughout time for us to “get it.”
The reason Christians must make this distinction is because Scripture is very clear that Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation. In John 14:6, Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” In Acts 4:12, we learn that “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” When liberal “christians” lie about Biblical doctrine and say that Muslims worship the same God we do, those “christians” are damning Muslims to Hell. The eternal destination of souls is at stake here.
