Islam and Jesus

29 Sep

Islam and Jesus…

Islamists maintain that the Quran, their holy book, is pure Arabic given right from heaven by the divine. The Quran is Arabic, but not quite pure. The language reveals borrowings.

Example: the word in the Quran for the Law of Moses is the Torah, obviously from the Bible in Judaism. Iblis is the word used for Satan, a distortion of the word in the Greek New Testament, diabolos; not Arabic. The word for “good news” is the word “injil” in the Quran. “Injil” clearly comes from the word “euangel” from the word evangelism, the Greek New Testament word for the gospel.

What does it tell us? Clearly, the Quran borrowed what they got, and got things wrong; an imitation. But you have the original. That the Quran’s “injil” comes from “euangel,” means it’s from the original gospel of God that you have.

Many religions try to claim Jesus Messiah as the prophet, as the New Age, as Christ conscientiousness. Don’t settle for a substitute; you have the real thing. Get back to the real Jesus. Stick to Him… close… and accept no substitutes.

But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! Galatians 1:8

Go about your day today treasuring the Word of God. Hide it in your mind and in your heart, and use every opportunity to proclaim it out of your mouth…to a world that’s waiting and longing to hear.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
