Do Muslims understand Christianity? Not really! Christians also do not understand why Muslims don’t like Christianity.
The Quran Gives Strong Support to the Earlier Holy Books
We receive many emails from Muslims saying that the Quran is the only holy book that is the Word of God. According to them, the Injil, Taurat, Zabur, and the Prophets are not God’s Word for today.
Yet, the Quran tells its followers to believe in these Books. Qs 5:46 says, “We made Jesus, son of Mary, follow in the footsteps (of the earlier Prophets) and confirm what existed in the Torah in his time. We gave him the Gospel containing guidance and light, as a confirmation of the Torah and instruction and advice for the pious ones” (Qs 5:46).
Muhammad also told his followers to read God’s Holy Book. “So if you are in doubt, [O Muhammad], about that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who have been reading the Scripture before you…” (Qs 10:94).
God’s Word is Eternal, Unchangeable
Looking at the two verses from the Quran above, it appears Muslims should read these holy books. We know that God’s Word (Injil, Taurat, Zabur, and the Prophets) will never change. The prophet Isaiah actually states this: “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
Both Isa Al-Masih and the Quran say that God’s Word cannot be changed. Obviously, God is all-powerful. He is capable of preserving His Word from those who might want to change it. We must not doubt the power of Allah. Read this great promise, “‘But the word of the Lord remains forever.’ And this word is the good news that was preached to you” (1 Peter 1:25).
Through his booklet, the author tries to answer any doubts Muslims have about the authenticity of the Bible, the confusion over the Trinity and unity God, and the identity of Isa Al-Masih. He also deals with other topics about Christianity of interest to Muslims.
Core Differences Between Islam and Christianity
Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God? The biggest difference in what Muslims and Christians believe is about the nature of God. God’s Word (The Bible), is the story of God’s search for man, beginning when Adam and Eve fell into sin and were sent from God’s presence. But the Quran and Islam is basically about man’s search for God.
God’s ultimate desire is for us to be with Him in heaven for all eternity. “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me” (Injil, John 10:28). We encourage you to carefully think about the way of salvation!
