What does Islam teach?

Matt. 3:13-17
John 1:12-14
I Corinthians 15:3-4

Islam teaches that there is only one God, but their god, Allah, is totally different from the God of the Bible, so they cannot be the same God!  Let’s look at Islam as compared to Christianity.

Christianity

 

Islam

God  

One God revealed in the Bible as Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit.  Within the one  "Essence" of the
Godhead there are three Persons who are co-equally and
co-eternally God.  Matt. 3:13-17; Matt.
28:19; I Tim. 3:16

God

There is no god but Allah – the God. The Koran teaches
that Allah does not have a son.  Koran, Surah 4:171

 

Jesus

Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, one with the Father. 
He is the sinless Redeemer of all mankind through His
vicarious death on the cross and resurrection from the
dead.  John 1:12-14; Hebrews 4:15; I Peter
3:18; I Cor. 15:3-4

Jesus

Jesus Christ was only a man, a prophet a prophet equal
to Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses, all of whom are below
Mohammed in importance. Christ did not die for man’s
sins, in fact, Judas was substituted for Jesus on the
Cross.  Koran, Surah 4:157

 

Sin

Sin is proud, independent, rebellion
against God in active or passive form.  Romans 1:18-23; Romans
3:10 & 23; Isaiah 53:6

 

Sin

Sin is failure to do Allah’s will, failure to do one’s
religious duties as outlined In the Five Pillars of
Islam.

 

Salvation

Salvation is received by faith in believing that Jesus
Christ, God’s Son, died for our sins on the cross, according
to God’s word, the Bible. I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans
10:9-10

Salvation

Man earns his own salvation, pays for his own sins. 
Koran, Surah 4:111
