THE MESSAGE NOW Vol. 3, No. 50 – Monday, 10th December, 2018 (John 4:39, John 8:32, 36, John 14:6) NO COMPETITION WHATSOEVER

If anyone ever thinks that God is an illusion, such a-one suffers from chronic paranoia mingled with schizophrenia of an uncommon kind. The truth is this: God is real and the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son. The truth is this: whosoever does not believe in the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God cannot and will not enter the kingdom of God after his/her departure from this present world (John 3:36). The truth is this: for anyone who claims to be a Christian but forms a destiny alliance with anyone outside the Christian faith, such a-one is an enemy of God (James 4:4). Therefore, Dear Christian sister, to marry a person from a different faith is to have satan as your father-in-law. Dear brother, you are a pillar in the kingdom of darkness when you do the same (2 Cor.6:14). In an age where our nation and indeed the world is experiencing the highest scale of international hypocrisy and the continuing false propaganda that Christianity and other religions especially islam are the same, it is high time we educated ourselves on the differences between especially these two religions. Understand dear Christian, the God of the Christian is in every respect completely and perfectly different from the God of islam. Permit me to educate us on the fact that the only physical source of Christian truth is the Bible. In contrast, there are two trusted sources for that of islam. These are the Qur’an and the Hadith (meaning the sayings of the prophet Mohammed) written and compiled by different disciples of islam such as ibn Ishaq, Bukhari, ibn Sa’d, etc. Herein are some of the differences between the Christian faith/founder, the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ and Mohammed the supposed prophet through whom islam emerged. According to the two trusted sources of islam, Mohammed was a man who: 1.Was convinced at one point that he was demon possessed (Ibn Ishaq 106) 2.Tried repeatedly to commit suicide (Ibn Ishaq 106: Bukhari 6982) 3.Admittedly delivered revelations from the devil (Ibn Ishaq 165-5; Ibn Sa’d 1:236-9) 4.Complained that he was a victim of a magic spell that gave him delusional thoughts and false beliefs (Bukhari 3175, 5765) 5. Supported his religion by robbing people (Ibn Ishaq 281-289) 6. Started a war with Mecca when he had a chance to live in peace in Medina (Ibn Ishaq 289-321) 7. Had people assassinated for criticising his religion (Ibn Ishaq 675-676) 8. Beheaded hundreds of Jews for trying to defend themselves once they realised he was eliminating them (Ibn Ishaq 464: Tabari 8:27-41) 9. Ordered his followers to execute anyone who leaves his religion (Bukhari 6878, 6922) 10. Commanded his followers to violently subjugate the entire world (Qu’ran 9:29: Muslim 7258) 11. Tortured people for money (Ibn Ishaq 515) 12. Bought, Sold, Owned and Traded Black African Slaves (Bukhari 6161, 7263) 13.

Had at least 9 wives at one time even though his own revelations only allowed four (Bukhari 268, 5068, 5215) 16. Married the wife of his own adopted son after causing the divorce (Qur’an 33:37, Tabari 8:2-3) 17. Had sex with his slave girls (Qur’an 33:50; Nasa’I 3411) 18.

Portrayed God as deceptive and Jesus as a complete failure (Qur’an 3:54; 4:157, 7:99) 26. Has kept more people from knowing the true God than any other false prophet in history.
