The President, Barack Hussein Obama has said, “I want to reconcile the differences between Christianity and Islam.”
The last time I looked the Koran said that Allah did not have a son and that Jesus is not divine. Although, Allah did come down to earth with some angels in the form of a man and told Mary she was going to have a man child. She told him to stay away from her. Allah needs only to speak and it happens so he commanded that she become pregnant and she did. I ask you, if someone makes a woman pregnant, then doesn’t that make him the father of that child? Yet Allah in the Koran denies fatherhood. Further, the Koran claims that Jesus did not die on a cross, but a look-alike died instead. Allah then caught him up into heaven without dying.
The word of God, the Holy Bible, on the other hand, states that God is the Father of Jesus, Who is His only begotten Son. This fact makes Jesus divine. Jesus received worship and exercised authority over all of nature and creation. Jesus was born sinless and lived a sinless life. On the cross He took the sins of the whole world in his own body, becoming sin, and received the wrath of God against those sins. He died when finished at the time of His own choosing. Three days later He arose from the dead. He was seen by his disciples and ascended into heaven. Those who are Christians and know something about Christianity and God’s word know that this is what the scripture teaches.
Since Jesus received in Himself the sins of all mankind and tasted death for each person, this is one reason mankind has hope of salvation. Another reason is that He is divine, and therefore infinite. Therefore those who believe in Him have their sins washed away by His blood and become the righteousness of God in Christ.
Christianity and Islam cannot be reconciled without changing the teaching of either Islam or Christianity or both. If Islam is changed then it ceases to be Islam or if Christianity is changed it ceases to be Christianity. Changing the teachings of Christianity will cause people to be lost and to go to hell while they think they are going to heaven. The Apostle Paul wrote that if anyone preaches anything different than what was preached, then let that person be anathema (cursed). What Obama is proposing is anathema. A Christian would not even think of changing anything in regard the truths of the Christian faith!
Christians are concerned about converting Muslims to faith in Jesus Christ for salvation so they will go to heaven. The Koran teaches Muslims to kill Christians and Jews so the Muslims doing the killing will go to heaven and the Christians and Jews will go to hell.
President Obama shows no knowledge or understanding of God or His word (The Holy Bible). Therefore, he is not concerned about the salvation of anyone’s life. This is contrary to God’s word, which commands Christian believers to go into the entire world preaching the gospel and making disciples.
If you want to do God’s will by acting according to God’s word, and are not born again, you must begin by repenting of your sins and inviting Jesus into your heart. This brings salvation from the consequences of your sins (Luke 24:46-48). When Jesus comes into your heart, you are saved, forgiven, made a new creature by the Holy Spirit, given eternal life and that makes you a Christian (Revelation 3:20; II Corinthians 5:17; I John 5:10-12; Romans 8:9).
A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ come into my heart and forgive me of my sins.” The alternative remains, which is to perish apart from God for eternity, and includes being tormented endlessly by fire.
