  • What does the Bible say about other faith?

    There are various faiths in the world. The root of Islam, Judaism and Christianity is more or less same. These faiths share similar concept on God and messenger of God. How does the Bible explain about other faith?

    Jesus Christ is not God's messenger but God Himself incarnate. No other religious leader has ever made such an exclusive claim, being the way the truth and the life. Not Confucius, Buddha, Muhammad, Krishna, Gandhi, etc. Jesus Christ claimed to be "the" Door to eternal life, and without, one is completely shut out.

    Lastly, if all religions are the same why have there been no Jewish or Christian terrorism since 9/11 but only Islamic attacks? If we all have the same concept about God and all are God's messengers then what is responsible for our ideological differences?

    Wouldn't you agree that if God speaks through a messenger that that message is directly from God? And that God should not contradict himself through any messenger since God would not contradict himself? Therefore, how do we address conflicting messages and how do we deal with those conflicting or false messengers?

    God bless,

      Of Judaism and Christianity yes, of Islam no. The devil is in the details.

      Not really. Islam does not consider Jesus to be the son of God nor does it believe He is God incarnate.

      I am not sure what you mean by "explain about other faith. The Scriptures recognize that there are others who do not follow the God of the Bible. They have abandoned knowledge of the one true God. The fault lies with them.

      The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

      For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles. (Rom. 1:18-22)

        Islam, Judaism and Christianity have similar geographical roots but that's where most of the similarities regarding Islam stop. What makes Christianity so unique is that it is about having a relationship with the creator of the universe. He made us that we might seek him and live a life of love. God made this relationship possible by giving his only son for us giving us the free gift of grace. Every other religion/worldview I come across seems to be based soley on rules... I've never heard about some other "god" that gave his only son up as a ransom for a bunch of sinners.
