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
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. V.

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.
