Articles about Islam

Islam is the second-largest religion in the world. Founded by Muhammad in 570AD, Muslims believe that there is only one God, that Muhammad is his messenger. Their scriptures include the Quran, believed to be the verbatim word of God, and the teachings and example of Muhammad.

While every religion makes claims about being unique and having history behind them, the historical evidence for Christianity stands out. Compare the historicity of a number of world religions with Christianity, and it becomes evident that there's a significant difference.

Many skeptics of Christianity believe that Jesus never claimed to be God. Some claim that nobody believed He was God until long, long after His death. Others argue that Jesus' own words show that He believed Himself to be simply a man, or only the Son of God and not God Himself. Still others claim that Jesus' divinity was created by the apostle Paul, and that his teaching and Jesus' teaching are in conflict. From Jehovah's Witnesses to Muslims to atheists, a whole bunch of people deny that Jesus is God.

That's a complex question. Islam, Judaism, and Christianity come from the faith of Abraham. They're not the same, as much has been added to Abraham's faith for all three. From a historical point of view, Islam and Christianity and Judaism worship the same God. How they understand God, and how they live that faith, is a very different story.

It's funny, but it's not. This thought-provoking video helped put GodWords on the map a long time ago, but it went offline for some time. I'm reposting it here for all of my new visitors. Unfortunately, I know a LOT of people who argue this way.
