i was thinking the other day
christians believe that jesus prophescised many things but why didnt he prophescy about islam and muslims and warn about them
Brother asked a very good question. When u talk to a christian they will claim that bible prophecised about sooo many things even social life such as sovient russian, pope and many other things. Well, try asking a question what does bible say about Muhammed?
they reply "NOTHING!"!. Well, if bible prophesises about minor things such as politics, then how can it miss out a person who now has 1.69 billion followers? Naturally, the bible would have forewarn its followers about Muhammed!
if u look at it islam is the only religion that debates christianity then why didnt jesus (as) didnt warn about islam??
There are so many i wont go through all of them, but here r some:
Jesus tells us a way of identifying true prophet from a false one:
"Beloved, believe not every spirit (prophet), but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God
: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." -- 1 John 4:1-3
Quran clearly says "And the angles said 'O Mary, Allah gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him, his name is Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, High honored in this world and the next, of those near stationed to Allah.".
We believe jesus was sent to the world, THAT HE WAS CHRIST (messiah), and in a physical form...Prophet Muhammed fits the criteria!!!
In Deuteronomy 18:20 we read
"But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name
, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall
113 chapters of Quran start with "In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.",
i wonder y god almighty of bible didnt put Prophet Muhammed to death. Quran also confirms truthfulles of Prophet Muhammed:
"And if he (Muhammad) had invented false sayings in Our (God's) name, We would have taken him by the right, then We would have severed from him his aorta, and there is none among you who could have held Us off from him"
The noble Qur'an, al-Haaqah(69):46
