Muslims and Christians agree that worshipping anything or anyone other than Allah is idolatry. Muslims often ask, “Why do Christians worship Isa Al-Masih?” This is a great question because both Muslims and Christians consider worshipping anything/anyone other than Allah a very serious sin.
The Injil and the Quran write that Isa was holy and the Word of Allah. He performed miracles and raised the dead. Isa is in heaven and will judge all people. Is it possible that Isa Al-Masih also has the same attributes and power as Allah? The answer determines if our worship will be acceptable to Allah.
Seven Reasons Why Christians Worship Isa Al-Masih
- Isa created the universe and everything in it including us. “For by him [Isa] all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible . . . all things were created through him and for him” (Injil, Colossians 1:16).
- Isa was holy and can help us overcome sin. “He [Isa] committed no sin . . .” (Injil, 1 Peter 2:22).
- Isa received worship. “And those in the boat worshiped him [Isa] . . .” (Injil, Matthew 14:33). “He said, ‘Lord, I believe,’ and he worshiped him [Isa]” (Injil, John 9:38).
- All angels worship Isa. “Let all God’s angels worship him [Isa]” (Injil, Hebrews 1:6).
- Isa has the power to forgive sins. “I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” (Injil, Matthew 9:6).
- Isa gives assurance of salvation to everyone who believes in Him. “. . . who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life” (Injil, 1 John 5:13).
- Isa will be the Judge on Judgment Day. “But they will give account to him [Isa] who is ready to judge the living and the dead” (Injil, 1 Peter 4:5).
Allah commands us to worship Isa because Allah and Isa are One. “. . . God . . . gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Injil, Philippians 2:9-11).
