1 ARTHUR DURNAN MINISTRIES1 ANSWERING ISLAM Arthur Durnan Ministries On Contrasting The Philosophy Of Muhammadanism With The Teachings Of The Lord Jesus Christ AND DEPICTING THE VAST SUPERIORITY OF THE WORLDS ONLY SAVIOUR, JESUS CHRIST, THE RIGHTEOUS ONE! To God Be All The Glory Forever!

2 2 ISLAM - OR ONLY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST? ISLAM - OR ONLY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST? Islam Versus Jesus: 1.ORIGINS OF BOTH M. In a Mecca cave, circa 572 A.D. J. From Eternity Past, Ephes. 3:11 2. WAY OF SALVATION M. Good works/self/the 5 pillars. 1.Shahadah (public confession of No God but Allah); 2. Salah (pray 5x daily); 3. Sawm (Ramadan fasting); 4. Zakat (2.5% for Muslims); 5 hajj. J. not of works../Gods love, grace

3 3 ISLAM Versus JESUS: ISLAM Versus JESUS: Continuing with... 3. DEITY OF CHRIST: M. Misguided Jewish prophet & NOT Gods final Word; J. Almighty God enfleshed & The FINAL Word – Hebrews 1:2. 4. THE ONE TRUE GOD: M. Allah, the distant, impersonal; (ACTUALLY, ALLAH WAS A PAGAN GOD OF ANCIENT DESERT TRIBES!) J. Jehovah, the One True God - WHO HAS CHOSEN TO REVEAL HIMSELF IN THREE DISTINCT PERSONALITIES : FATHER, SON & HOLY SPIRIT – CO-EQUAL, CO-EXISTENT.

4 4 ISLAM Versus JESUS Continuing with... 5. KORAN OR HOLY BIBLE? M. 114 surahs derived from early tales, legends & myths of Arabs, Jews & coherent fantasies re she-camel and the monkey-people & the night journey, etc, - EARTHLY sources all! J. Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by H.S. (2 Peter 1:21) 6. WHOS TRUE PROPHET? M. Long dead – cant save anyone! J. Victoriously alive forevermore! HEB. 7:24 – BUT THIS MAN, BECAUSE HE CONTINUES FOREVER, HAS AN UN- CHANGEABLE (Greek, not transferable) PRIESTHOOD !

5 5 You might as well know – >ISLAMS KORAN IS RIDDLED WITH ERRORS AND CONTRADICTIONS... * LISTEN TO IT ON CREATION – SURA 54:49,50 states Allah created everything in the twinkling of an eye; SURA 41:9,12 states it took two days; SURA 41:10 states four days; SURA 7:54 states six days; SURA 32:5 states a day equaling 1000 yrs NOTICE – 5 DIFFERENT TIMES!

6 6 EVEN ORIGIN OF ISLAM HIGHLY SUSPECT! IN FACT, THE KORAN GIVES 4 CONFLICTING ACCOUNTS OF MUHAMMADS CALL TO BE ALLAHS PROPHET ! – 1. ACCOUNT NO. 1 – SURAS 53 & 81ALLAH PERSONALLY CAME TO MUHAMMAD! 2. ACCOUNT NO. 2 – SURAS 16 & 26 THE CALL WAS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT! 3. ACCOUNT NO. 3 – SURA 15 ANGELS ISSUED THE CALL! 4. ACCOUNT NO. 4 – SURA 2 GABRIEL HIMSELF APPEARED TO HIM! EVEN ORIGIN OF ISLAM HIGHLY SUSPECT!

7 7 ISLAM Versus JESUS: Continuing with... 7. ATTITUDE RE ISRAEL M. Jihad (holy war) against all infidels (Surah 5:85; 9:5), and annihilate Israel ! J. I have loved thee (Israel) with an everlasting love!Jeremiah 31:1.. ROMANS 11:25, 26,...and so all Israel shall be saved. 8. MORALITY & MARRIAGE M. Islam allows 4 wives; some say Muhammad had upwards of 24 !! Another word for this would be polygamy unlimited! J. Lifetime, monogamous, heterosexual union – till death do us part (Matthew 19: 4-6 )... heterosexual, lifetime, and always that way from the beginning (Verse 4).

8 8 ZERO INDEED ITS MISCUES NEVER DO CEASE! AND ISLAM KNOWS ZERO ABOUT THE HOLY BIBLE – > THE KORAN PRESENTS MARY, THE EARTHLY MOTHER OF JESUS, AS THE SISTER OF MOSES AND AARON (OBVIOUSLY CONFUSING HER WITH THEIR SISTER, MIRIAM) ! > THE KORAN PLACES NOAHS FLOOD IN MOSES DAY ! > AND THE KORAN CLAIMS THAT ONE OF NOAHS SONS REFUSED TO ENTER THE ARK & WAS DROWNED ! > IT ALSO SAYS ABRAHAM SACRIFICED ISHMAEL IN MECCA YET, RATHER THAN ISAAC ON MT. MORIAH IN JERUSALEM ! INDEED ITS MISCUES NEVER DO CEASE!

9 9 ISLAM Versus JESUS: Continuing with... 9. RELIGION OF VIOLENCE OR PEACE ? M. Surah 9:5 – Then fight & slay the pagans wherever you find them. Seize them, beleaguer them & lie in wait for them. IE.. SUDAN, SOMALIA, LIBYA, NORTHERN NIGERIA, INDONESIA, JOLO, SAUDI ARABIA, etc. J. Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto Me, all you who labor & are heavy laden, and I will give REST; Take My yoke upon you & learn of Me........ PLAINLY THEN, MUHAMMAD, MAN OF VIOLENCE -- JESUS, MAN OF PEACE Choose YOU this day Whom YOU will serve.. Josh. 24:15

10 10 FANCIFUL 7TH.-CENTURY KORAN. 7 TH.- CENTURY ARAB CULTURE FORCIBLY IMPOSED WHAT DOES ISLAM DEMAND OF PEOPLE IN 21st. CENTURY? IT DEMANDS REGULATION OF EVERY ASPECT OF DAILY LIFE TO THE POINT WHERE RELIGION, POLITICS & CULTURE WOULD BE DRIVEN BY MUHAMMADS FANCIFUL 7TH.-CENTURY KORAN. ! 7th.-CENTURY MUHAMMADANISM IS ACTUALLY FUELED BY A SUBTLE FORM OF MILITANT RACISM IN WHICH ITS 7 TH.- CENTURY ARAB CULTURE WOULD BE FORCIBLY IMPOSED UPON ALL OTHER CULTURES.... WHEREAS BIBLE CHRISTIANITY IS SUPRA-CULTURAL – JESUS MAKES US NEW WHERE WE LIVE !

11 11 WILL ANY RELIGION TAKE ME TO HEAVEN - OR IS JESUS THE ONLY WAY? 4 VITAL LANDMARKS: VITAL LANDMARKS THAT SET BIBLE CHRISTIANITY APART FROM ALL WORLD RELIGIONS OF MAN – LANDMARK NO. 1 GODS WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE, THE ONLY INFALLIBLE WORD OF GOD! IT STANDS SUPREME ABOVE ALL OTHER BOOKS IN VIEW OF ITS AMAZING ACCURACY, PROPHECIES & POWER TO RADICALLY TRANSFORM A LIFE!

12 12 SCHOLARS HAVE DOCUMENTED 24,633 MANUSCRIPTS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT ALONE; >THE NO. 2 BOOK IN MANUSCRIPT AUTHORITY IN ALL HISTORY IS HOMERS ILIAD, WHICH CAN BOAST OF ONLY 643 MANUSCRIPTS! THE HOLYBIBLE SURELY DESERVES OUR UTMOST TRUST ! DO YOU KNOW THIS ABOUT THE TOTAL RELIABILITY OF THE BIBLE ? There is more evidence for the historical reliability of the New Testament than for any ten pieces of classical literature PUT TOGETHER! > SCHOLARS HAVE DOCUMENTED 24,633 MANUSCRIPTS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT ALONE; >THE NO. 2 BOOK IN MANUSCRIPT AUTHORITY IN ALL HISTORY IS HOMERS ILIAD, WHICH CAN BOAST OF ONLY 643 MANUSCRIPTS! THE HOLY BIBLE SURELY DESERVES OUR UTMOST TRUST !

13 13 LANDMARK NO. 2 THE FOUNDER OF N.T. CHRISTIANITY, JESUS CHRIST, THE LORD OF GLORY! There are many reasons why Jesus is Supreme above all..... Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Heaven (John 1:1,14) is the God WHO CAME DOWN TO US. O, what loving condescension! Bethlehem harbored God! No other founder of any world religion has ever COME DOWN TO US in order to declare Him (John 1: 18b), ie, to show Jehovah the Creator- God to man! NO ONE ELSE – ONLY JESUS CHRIST!

14 14 LANDMARK NO. 3 THE CROSS-WORK OF MT. CALVARY! Substitutionary, Acceptable, Eternal Its plain from the Holy Bible that Jehovah God required the shedding of innocent blood (Hebrews 9:22) for the remission of sin....................... and only Jesus Christ sacrifice at Calvary answers to this demand, for He alone is sinLESS & HOLY! And this is of utmost importance........

15 15 ALL WORLD RELIGIONS END WHERE HISTORIC BEGINSEMPTY TOMB CHRISTIANITY BEGINS.....AT THE EMPTY TOMB OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! And so take the time to MARK THIS DOWN – AND SHOUT IT... *MOHAMMAD OF YATHRIB (570 – 632 A.D.) DIED! *GAUTAMA THE BUDDHA – LONG-GONE TO HIS SELF-CONCOCTED NIRVANA, OR STATE OF ABSOLUTE NOTHINGNESS! BUT JESUS CHRIST IS GLORIOUSLY ALIVE ! LANDMARK NO. 4 – JESUS AMAZING TRIUMPH OVER DEATH & THE GRAVE ! Incredible! Unheard of! BUT TRUE!

16 16 And Hear Oxford University Philosophy Professor Richard Swinburne He told 100 philosophy professors at Yale U. Conference On Ethics And Beliefs that his Probability Formula known as Bayes Theorem indicated the probability of Jesus literal Resurrection came out to be at 97%.... HE PROCEEDED TO WEIGH EVIDENCE FOR AND AGAINST THE RESURRECTION, ASSIGNING VALUES TO FACTORS LIKE THE PROBABILITY THAT THERE IS A GOD; THE NATURE OF JESUS BEHAVIOUR DURING HIS LIFETIME, AND... Contd. Next Slide

17 17 Professor Swinburne Continues.......AND THE SINCERE QUALITY OF WITNESS TESTIMONIES AFTER JESUS DEATH, ETC.......TO WHICH SWINBURNE ADDED: FOR SOMEONE DEAD FOR 36 HOURS TO COME TO LIFE AGAIN IS, ACCORDING TO THE LAWS OF NATURE, EXTREMELY IMPROBABLE, BUT IF THERE IS A GOD OF THE TRADITIONAL KIND, NATURAL LAWS ONLY OPERATE BECAUSE HE MAKES THEM OPERATE ! THANX, PROFESSOR, GOD DOES INDEED SUSTAIN ALL THINGS BY THE WORD OF HIS POWER! 100% SO!

18 18 THE RELIGIONS OF HUMANKIND ARE NOT YOUR ETERNAL NEED... ISLAM SAYS: PRAY FIVE TIMES DAILY, FAST, OBEY THE QURAN AND YOULL DISCOVER ALLAH ; HINDUISM SAYS: PRACTICE AUSTERITIES, RENOUNCE WORLD ORDER, SHUT OUT EVERYTHING ELSE AND YOULL FIND ANY OF 300 MILLION GODS JUDAISM SAYS: KEEP JEHOVAHS TEN COMMANDMENTS AND YOULL BE DOING ALL GOD REQUIRES JESUS CHRIST SAYS: COME UNTO ME ALL YOU WHO LABOR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST AND ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST Matthew 11: 28-30. Matthew 11: 28-30. STOP YOUR CLIMBING TO GOD – HE HAS COME DOWN TO US IN JESUS !

19 Arthur Durnan Ministries19 DONT BE WRONG ABOUT THE WAY TO HEAVEN ! I AM JESUS SAID, I AM THE WAY (the Way is a specific Person, (the Way is a specific Person, God-In-The-Flesh - and no God-In-The-Flesh - and no one else(only Jesus one else!), THE TRUTH (only Jesus is worthy of your explicit trust, He is worthy of your explicit trust, He Who is God Almighty), AND THE LIFE Who is God Almighty), AND THE LIFE (new & eternal life is thru Jesus); no man comes to the Father, but by Me.(one Way only; not 100) by Me. (one Way only; not 100) ANY SAVIOUR LESS THAN GOD IS NO SAVIOUR AT ALL !
