Islam & Christianity












Islam and Christianity

Christianity from the perspective of Islam
Viewing things from a distance might make them appear quite different! Likewise Christianity, when seen from the viewpoint of Islam. This book invites to reflection. It offers new perspectives and inspiration for those who are not holding rigid to a dogma, but who give priority to the truth!

What does the Koran say about Jesus?
Isa Ibn Maryam, known in the New Testament as Jesus, is regarded as a messenger of God and al-Masih (the Messiah) in Islam, which was sent to lead the Children of Israel (Bani Isra'il) with a new scripture, al-Injil (the gospel). Faith in Jesus is required in Islam, as well as for all the other prophets who are mentioned in the Koran.
Jesus, Son of God?
Anyone who reads the Bible carefully, will notice that the Bible itself disproves the claim that Jesus is the Son of God, and it clearly shows that he, as claimed by the Koran, was a prophet and messenger of God. The concept of God's Son is close to the Roman polytheism and also the Hindu polytheism where an incarnated God is called Avatar (e.g. Krishna), but not to the religion of Abraham.
What became of God's commandments?
How comes that today's Christians, except from a few Christian sects, seem to ignore the commandments of the Old Testament so completely? Muslims believe that only God can revise His commandments. No one may contradict the commandments of God. Otherwise man would stand higher than God himself. Only Prophets sent by God have the authority to proclaim God's instructions.
Where does Christmas come from?
Christians believe they celebrate Christmas, because that night Christ was born. However, that Jesus was born that night, is nowhere mentioned in the Bible, and certainly not that one should celebrate the birth of Jesus. In fact, the Bible says otherwise...
The Sons of God
Horus, Mithras, Dionysis, Jesus (in the altered version of Christianity) and many others share the same characteristics such as birth at the winter solstice, the twelve disciples, the crucifixion and resurrection. The common root of these cults is clearly and openly visible ... in the sky.
Original sin and crucifixion
Since divine nature is so alien to us, many beliefs are often not questioned and simply accepted, especially if they have been taught us from childhood. If one, however, examines some beliefs and brings them to a human level, they appear completely different.
Human sacrifice
Human sacrifices are as old as humanity itself, and found almost anywhere in the world. They served a variety of purposes such as dealing with an emergency situation, when other people directly served as food (cannibalism) or indirectly to restore the favour of a deity, from which one expected remedial of a shortcoming.
Isaac and Ishmael
Muslims remember every year during the celebration of Idhul Adha, the story of Abraham, who was put to test by God in the form of the command to sacrifice his only son. Abraham passed the test, and had already placed his son on the woodpile, when God made known that Abraham had already fulfilled the vision and passed the test. Instead of his son, Abraham sacrificed then a ram. This story is also narrated in the Torah / Bible, but there is a small and subtle difference..
Bible & Koran - a revelation of God?
Whoever reads the Bible or the Koran, will certainly admit that much truth and wisdom can be found in these books. But, is this sufficient to claim, the book would be a "holy book" or even "God's Word"? Surely, it must be possible to prove such a claim by relatively plain criteria:
