What Jews And Muslims Think About Christianity And Why.

Including presentations of some Christian's perspectives

"The Short Of It"  They believe that there are only two or three possibilities. Either Jesus was a false prophet, or most of those who wrote the NT were, for Jesus did not come back in the time frame that is presented in our bible. Many Jews do now believe that Jesus may have been a good man or possibly even a prophet, but Christians have messed up the record of his life and teachings. Muslims do believe Jesus was a prophet and they also believe in the Virgin Birth.

"Attention!" "Before you go further please be warned!"

If you do not feel qualified, in the sense of perusing and thinking about attacks against Christianity, then I would suggest that you do more reading of the Bible and of the history of the world and especially the history of the reformation and the Church. There have been numbers of people, and even Christian leaders who have converted: some  to Judaism and some to the Muslim religion.

I would warn you, that to dive into the material found on the links listed on this page will be in the least challenging, and it is possible that some of you could become very confused. If you are not a bible person and if you do not know history then go on and investigate at the expense of making a fool of yourself. Very few Christians that I know are disciplined in their faith well enough to handle the arguments found on these links. If you seldom, if ever, read the Bible I would suggest that you go back to some other site and forget you were ever here. I would also urge you to get right with God and become a disciplined Christian, for there is no other viable alternative and any other option is to make a genuine fool of yourself.

If you will take the time to peruse peacekey.com's material you will find that I agree with numbers of their thoughts, in the sense of their viewing many of popular Christian doctrines very much like I do. However, I do believe that, in a general sense, their views, (concerning what the NT does teach, and why), are not correct. However I also do not agree with all of the views of the most  popular Christian teachers, nor with many  popular and widely accepted traditional doctrines.  I have worked at getting back to what the Bible does say and because of this I have been forced to agree with several of the points made by both Jews and Muslims, but with few of their conclusions.

Muslim Views

Jesus Through a Muslim Lens
Many may be surprised to learn that Muslims believe in Jesus' miracles. But this shared interest goes much further

Verses about Jesus from the Qur'an: "That they said (in boast), 'We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah'; but they killed him not, nor crucified him. Only a likeness of that was shown to them. And those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge. But only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up unto himself, and Allah is exalted in power, wise. And there is none of the people of the book but must believe in him before his death; and on the day of judgment he will be a witness against them." (Surat Al-Nisa'a 4:157-159)

The following is from the Muslim link above.

Muslims venerate Jesus as a divinely inspired human but never, ever as "the son of God." In the same vein, we treat the concept of the Trinity as a late footnote to Jesus' teachings, an unnecessary "mystery" introduced by the North African theologian Tertullian two centuries after Jesus' death. Nor do Muslims view his death as an act of atonement for mankind's sins. Rather, along with the early Christian theologian Pelagius, Islam rejects the doctrine of original sin, a notion argued into church doctrine by St. Augustine around the year 400.

The Councils of Nicaea (325), Tyre (335), Constantinople (381), Ephesus (431), and Chalcedon (451) were official, often brutal attempts to stamp out heterodox views of Jesus held by "heretical" theologians.

Rulings by these councils led to the persecution and deaths of tens of thousands of early Christians at the hands of more "orthodox" Christians who condemned them. Most disputes centered on divergent interpretations of the Trinity. For this reason, historians of religion sometimes see in these bloody divisions one of the root causes for early Islam's firmly unitarian outlook.

Then and now, no more dangerous religious mistake exists for a Muslim than dividing the Oneness of God by twos or threes.
