Christianity vs. Islam - Who Is A Liar?

Contributor: Scott Allswang | June, 2013

"Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ?  He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.  Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also." - 1 John 2:22-23

We need no more then these 2 plain, simple verses to take the cornerstone out of the theological structure of Islam and watch it come crashing down.  I mean this ends the debate.  Game over!  Any religion that claims to be the TRUTH like Islam does and yet denies that Jesus is the Christ or Messiah is a lie and a false "religion" from the pit of hell.  Can we just put aside political correctness for one minute and call a spade a spade?  We need not look any further than the person of Jesus Christ to decide who is the liar here!  The Bible is very clear that Jesus is God, that He is equal to the Father, that He is the second person of the Godhead, that He has existed with the Father from eternity past, and that to Him every knee will bow and every tongue will confess.  Islam denies all of this.  It is a "religion" of the spirit of antichrist which is the spirit of Satan.  Islam is a religious, political system of the devil who is the true author of this dark and sinister system of lies that has left every century of its existence soaked in blood!

"Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either....."

Isn't it amazing that Islam says that God doesn't have a son?!  So they don't have the Father either!  This is really tragic people.  I'm not trying to make light of this.  Here you have millions of devoted Muslims praying 5 times a day as one of the requirements of a true follower, but who are they praying to??  Who is receiving that worship??  Well they don't have Jesus and they don't have the Father.  That means their not praying to the true God and the true God is not receiving their worship and prayers because the only way to the Father is through the Son whom they deny!  Well, their praying to the true god, Allah.  Really? Since when has the moon god (an idol) become the true god?  Let's get a little more insight into this by looking at a very telling passage of Scripture:

1 CO 10:19-21

"What am I saying then?  That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything?  But I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to DEMONS and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with DEMONS.  You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of DEMONS."  (emphasis mine)

Let's take a look at this passage more closely.

From MacArthur Study Bible on this passage:

"Idols and the things sacrificed to them (including prayer I might add) have no spiritual nature or power in themselves (cf. 1 CO 8:4,8), but they do represent the demonic.  If pagan worshipers believe an idol was a god, demons act out the part of the imagined god (cf. 2 Thess.2:9-11).  There is not a true god in the idol, but there is a satanic force (cf. Deut.32:17; Ps. 106:37)."

From ESV Study Bible on this passage:

"Paul knows that demons delight in the worship of any "god" but the one true God and therefore take a special interest in idolatry. In Deut.32:17-18 scrifice to false gods, called "demons" there, is contrasted with worship of God, who is called "the Rock" (cf. 1 CO 10:4). False religions are not merely the result of human imagination and human energybut generally have demonic power behind them. Not everything that seems "supernatural" is from God." (emphasis mine)

Let's look at one more verse:

1 John 4:15

"Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God."

Islam does not confess that Jesus is the Son of God. They deny it outright. Therefore God does not abide in this "religion".

From the ESV Study Bible on 1 John 4:15:

"Jesus is the Son of God, not in the derived sense that all Christians as God's children are his adopted "sons" and heirs (Rom. 8:14; Gal 3:26) but in a unique sense (the Son of God) in which Jesus is acknowledged as personally divine and as sharing fully every attribute of God."Islam absolutely denies this!

So therefore Islam has failed the test of 1 John 2:22-23. It is a lie and a false religion created by Satan and his host of demons. Satan has always wanted to be like God and be worshiped as God. All false religion, like Islam, is Satan's attempt to achieve that very thing. He deceives mankind and robs God of the worship that only belongs to Him.

Isaiah 14:13-14 speaking of Lucifer/Satan

"For you have said in your heart: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High."

John 8:44

".....When he (the devil) speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it."

Again, I'm shedding the light of Scripture on Islam to highlight the tragedy that over 1 billion souls have been deceived and entrapped into a system that cannot save them, not even by dying for the cause of jihad. I can tell you that God is moving and saving many. I'm not preaching hate. God forbid! We must not hate Muslims, but we must pray that God will bring deliverance to these people and one day destroy this ideology which is spreading like a cancer across this globe.
