I have already spoken on the subject of love and how Islam, by it’s own admission (or more precisely, by the ramifications of its philosophy), generally considers Allah himself unworthy of the highest and most supreme form of love. Indeed it encourages a type of subpar worship towards God on the part of the Muslim and, in praising, absolutely denigrates God. Yet enough of that, this post has to do with the matter of forgiveness in Islam (and Christianity by relation). A common charge levied against Christianity by Muslims is that Islam paints a superior picture of God seeing as Allah does not require sacrifice but will rather simply forgive sins. I must admit that at face value Islam does seem to be the superior religion on this count yet can this belief be sustained after one has worked through the implications inherent in the concepts of sin, forgiveness, and the divine nature?
edit: Three times now I have left a nice, respectful comment to the author of whose post to which this reply is aimed at and three times now he has deleted my comments. They claim to wish to be let known of any holes in their argument and yet when I completely refute their argument, they are quick to hide this from their Muslim audience. It’s telling that they’d want to lie not only to themselves, but fellow Muslims as well—telling indeed.
On perusing the internet, I came across this article which claims to prove that Muhammad was neither a madman nor inspired by Satan. Now the article divides itself between a section aimed at a general audience and another to refute a specific Christian claim—namely, that Muhammad was inspired by Satan. I would encourage all Christians to read it in order to see how gravely most Muslims misunderstand the Christian message and YHWH—the only true God. (more…)
