In the previous three articles, we exposed the lies of Dr. Jamal Omer, a Muslim author of the book, “The Road to Hypocrisy for the Coptic Orthodox,” as he tried his best to convince his gullible Muslim readers that the God of the Bible is the god of war, not only in the Old Testament but in the New Testament as well. He used verses from the Bible to prove his point, or as we say to fabricate his point, not realizing that a parable is not an actual history. He purposely left out the clear verses of the Bible which teach Christians not only to live in love and peace with others around them but even with their enemies, and he hung all of his hopes on verses which have nothing to do with war. He tried hard to tie Christianity with false pagan gods and fables to prove that Christianity had not come up with any new beliefs because the fables and the pagan worshipers believed in gods and their sons. What he did not realize is that none of the false gods or fairy tale stories of the fables had the same beliefs as Christians do in the Trinity for there is none like the God of the Bible who is one in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Now let us examine the verses of the Qur’an and the sayings of the self-proclaimed prophet Mohammed in the hadith to see and understand why Muslim writers like Dr. Omer falsely attack the Bible. However, before we get to that, let me share with you a true account that just happened to me recently.
I received a phone call from a Christian brother who shared his crisis concerning his son (age 32) who had just married a Muslim lady. He asked if I would speak with his son and daughter-in-law, which I was absolutely willing to do. The following night, this brother called and put his phone on speaker. After introducing myself, I asked the son and his wife some simple questions. Not surprisingly, I learned that the son had married his wife in the Islamic tradition, in which he had said the shahada (“I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”). This itself is a false witness because this son never knew, saw, heard, touched, smelled, or tasted Mohammed. The conversation was not a long one because he asked me why I wanted to talk to him and his wife. I spoke very gently with him and chose my words carefully by explaining that his father had asked me to share the truth of Islam and Christianity with both of them. I could hear in the tone of his voice the bitterness and anger when he said, “Why can’t you leave people alone? All religions are good.” Obviously, he did not know the differences between Islam and Christianity. I answered, “That is not true, because people who believe that Islam is a loving and peaceful religion are wrong. When we study Islam, which is the word of Allah in the Qur’an and its interpretation by Muslim scholars and also the teachings of Mohammed in the hadith, we cannot find one statement that teaches love or peace.
I continued by stating, “If Christianity is true, Islam is 100 percent false. If Islam is true, then Christianity is 100 percent false. They both can be false, but there is zero chance for both Christianity and Islam to be true.” He asked, “Who made you the right person to know the truth?” I replied, “It is not about me. It is Islam vs Christianity and the Qur’an vs the Bible. I have studied Islam for more than 40 years through the Islamic scholars’ writings. That is how I know Islam very well.”
I explained that most Muslims do not know Islam. Then I believe I hit a sensitive nerve, for he knew that his foreign Muslim wife does not speak or understand the Arabic language. He asked, “Why do you hate us?” I replied, “I do not hate you or your beloved wife. In fact, the opposite is true because I love you. Let me give you an example to prove my point. The Qur’an teaches that Jesus is not the Son of God and He did not die on the cross or rise from the dead.” I then quoted a verse from the Qur’an to prove my point. I continued, “On the other hand, the Bible clearly prophesied hundreds of years earlier in the Old Testament before Christ came in the flesh that He is the Son of God and He will die on the cross and rise from the dead on the third day. We can read the fulfillment of these prophecies in the New Testament. How can Islam and Christianity both be true when they teach the opposite message?”
Once again, I said, “They both can be false, but there is no chance for them both to be true.” That is when he hung the phone up on me. I called again to make sure it was not due to technical interference, but his father told me that his son had hung up on purpose. I know that the truth hurts, but I also know that the truth will set people free.
Dr. Omer knows the truth very well for the direct teachings of the Qur’an and Mohammed’s sayings to Muslim believers are very clear. It is to engage in war with non-Muslims and perform jihad for the sake of Allah to force Islam on the last person who walks on the face of the earth. However, instead of acknowledging this horrible fact about Islam, Dr. Omer went on and on fabricating lies that Christianity teaches the same message as Islam.
Dr. Omer ignored the 79 Qur’an verses in which Allah commands Muslim believers to engage in war. For example, Qur’an 9:29 states: “Engage in war with those (Jews and Christians) who do not believe in Allah nor in the last day. Nor forbid what Allah and his messenger forbid….” He also ignored the 26 verses in which Allah orders Muslim believers to perform jihad. For example in Qur’an 9:41: “March forth lightly or heavily. Perform jihad with your money and your lives for the sake of Allah. This is best for you, if you were knowing.”
He also disregarded the direct saying of Mohammed in Sahih Muslim: “I have been commanded to engage in war against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah and believe in me that I am the messenger and in all what I have brought.” Dr. Omer also ignored the history of the Arab warriors during the last 1400 years which shows the true sad history of how Islam took over the Muslim world as Muslim scholar Al Tabari stated: “Arabs are the most noble people in linage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of his messenger. We engage in war with people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and his messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for the one who disbelieves, we will engage in war with him forever in the cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.”
In conclusion, Mohammed not only taught Muslim believers to engage in war with others, but he led them for ten years while he was alive and is still leading Muslim believers today. The sad thing is that American people do not know these simple facts. By the way, this 32-year-old man is no longer a construction worker, but in a few months he will be a Muslim pilot. The first September 11 was carried out by 19 Arab Muslims. The next September 11 will be carried out perhaps by a 190, if not 1900, American Muslim jihadis who follow their prophet’s noble example, the lord of war.
