Islam's Beliefs, Practices and History

Islam: Allah granted Muslims the power to judge all others. (Qur'an 3:110; 2:269; 3:118; 8:22-23; 8:29)
Christianity: Jesus said, "Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. (Matthew 7:1)

Islam: Allah commands Muslims to practice retribution; take an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth..
Christianity: Jesus said, "If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other cheek. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also."

Islam: Allah says Christians are hell-bound friends of Satan. Muslims must never take them as friends. Muslims must convert, enslave or kill every Christian.
Christianity: Jesus wants every Muslim to know that he loves them and died for their sins. Jesus commands Christians to love all people, even their enemies.

Islam: Allah says Muslim men who die fighting in the Cause of Allah--or do more charitable deeds than harmful deeds for Muslims will enter Paradise.
Christianity: God says all will enter heaven who believe Jesus is the Son of God, died for their sins, was resurrected, and now sits at the right hand of God.

Islam: Allah hates apostates, blasphemers and all who are not Muslim. Allah and God are one and the same.

Christianity: God loves all people. God shows no favoritism. Allah and God cannot possibly be one and the same.

Islam: Allah is unknowable.
Christianity: God is personal.

Islam: Allah commands Muslims to fight until all people are Muslims, are enslaved by Muslims or are dead (the central theme of the Qur’an: 8:39, 9:5, 9:29, hundreds more).
Christianity: God commands all people to love Him and love one another—even their enemies.

Islam: When threatened, Muslims are expected to lie, break treaties or deny being a Muslim.

Christianity: God says there will be no liars in heaven (Rev 21:8).
Islam:  All biblical prophets were Muslims: Abraham, Noah, Moses and Jesus. Adam was a Muslim.

Christianity: Not one person mentioned in the Bible was a Muslim; the Bible was completed before Muslims existed.
Islam: Jews and Christians corrupted the Bible by removing verses that foretold Muhammad's coming, and adding verses to establish Jesus' divinity.

Christianity: All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true. Abiding by its unchanging words brings peace of mind and heart.
Islam: The original Bible did not mention that God has a son, that Jesus was crucified or that Jesus was raised from the dead. Christians corrupted the Bible by adding such stories.

Christianity: God would never permit mere men to change his Words. No man is more powerful than God. The original Bible and today’s Bible reveal that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son Jesus into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Jesus died for the sins of everyone who believes in him and accepts him as Savior and Lord. Today’s Bible is the same as the original.
Islam: Fleshly rewards await those who enter paradise; fruit, wine, and virgins created for the eternal pleasure of Muslim men. Paradise is all about satisfying the senses and ambitions of earthly bodies.

Christianity: Sensual pleasures are of this world. Fleshly bodies cannot last forever. Heavenly bodies are spiritual, personal and eternal. In heaven there is peace, love and joy. There is no sickness or death. There is no deceit. There are no more tears. Believers will share their happiness and love with one another and with God.
Islam:  Jews are descendants of apes and pigs. It is a sacred duty of Muslims to convert, enslave or murder every Jew.

Christianity: The Jews are God’s chosen people. God will never allow them to be destroyed.

Islam: Salvation is through obeying rules and helping Muslims.
Christianity: Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Islam: Jesus was a prophet. He was not Divine. Jesus will bow to Muhammad on Judgment Day.
Christianity: " the name of Jesus, every knee will bow in heaven and earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil 2:10-11)

Islam: Allah said, “Fight until there is no more tumult or oppression and there is faith in Allah altogether and everywhere." (Qur'an 8:39; 9:5)
Christianity: Jesus said, “The greatest commandments are to love God and to love your neighbor as yourself. Go and make disciples of all naitons, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)
