TEACHINGS OF QURAN <VS.> TEACHINGS OF BIBLE

God Almighty (Allah) is the only Creator of all that exists.

God Almighty (Yahweh also pronounced Jahovah) is the only Creator of all that exists. (Gen. 1:1)

There is only One God (Allah). Prophets are Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus Christ (born without father as miracle birth, preformed miracles) and Muhammad is the last prophet. All prophets said, “God is One and you have to serve Him, alone without partners“. And Jesus us coming back in the Last Days.

There is only One God. But (according to Christians) He exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son (Jesus is God’s son and also a Holy Spirit) and all of them together are a One-God-Trinity. (But there is no “Trinity” in the Bible) And Jesus is coming back in the Last Days.

Almighty God reveals Himself as “One God” with 99 Divine Attributes – But never compares Himself with anything in His creation.

Almighty God has revealed Himself as “One God” and “One Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:3; Mark 12:29)

ORIGIN OF MAN – Allah created man from dirt and “in His image” and of “His spirit,” yet God has no likeness of anything in creation.

ORIGIN OF MAN – God created man from dirt and the image of God and of His spirit. But the Lord has to go looking for Adam (Genesis 1 & 2)

SIN – Adam sinned and Eve sinned, but they repented and were forgiven, with no continuing effects on their children.

SIN – Eve made Adam sin and thus brought sin into the world, so Eve is cursed and their sins are passed on to their children. (Genesis 3:1-7)

ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS – God Forgives Adam and Eve after they repent. Then He makes Adam his deputy (caliph) and the first prophet. (no curse of God on Eve)

ORIGINAL SIN – all of Adam’s posterity are born with a sin nature and are sinful from birth (Romans 3:22-23, 1st John 1:10)

Man is basically good but prone to mistakes. Muslims who repent and submit to God are forgiven without intercession from Christ (or anyone) needed.

Man is by nature sinful and has need for redemption by the atonement of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:6, 8:32, Colossians 1:19-20, Hebrews 7:26-27, 9:26, 10:12, 1st John 4:10)

SALAVATION – Through submission to GOD’S Will on earth – in peace, anyone, anytime, any place can be a servant of Almighty God and draw closer to Him to be Forgiven by Him.

SALAVATION – God is Jesus and dies on a cross for sins of people He calls His children and they are all forgiven just for believing this story. (Romans 8:14-15, Ephesians 1:5, Galatians 4:5)

Allah is not like His creation. He is neither male nor female, nor is creation like Him.

Bible says; “God is not a man… not the son of man..” (Numbers 23:19*) Other places contradicts this(?) *corrected June 19, 2010
