Jesus is Superior to Mohammed

The Superiority of Jesus over Mohammed.

What a difference between Muhammad and Allah. Did either love sinful creatures as our Lord Jesus Christ? This is brought out beautifully in The Belgic Confession, Article 26: About the Intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ. Does Muhammad love like this? Does the God of Islam, Allah, love like this? Did Allah come down to lay his life down for sinners. Not at all! Allah is removed from his creatures and cannot enter into our world. Muhammad, himself a sinner cannot provide salvation for anyone as he is a sinner also in need of salvation. Sinners will not find absolution, the forgiveness of sins or peace with God through Mohammed but they may certainly find it through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Read all of Article 26 but note the following extract:

‘For there is, neither among heaven nor among the terrestrial creatures, one who more lovingly embraces us than Christ Himself, Who, “although He was in the form of God, emptied His very self,” and, on account of us, “was made like His brethren in all things.” But if we had to contrive another Mediator for ourselves through seeking, who would deem us of some worth, who would love us more zealously than He Himself Who willingly abandoned His own life on our behalf when we were up to that point enemies?’

What are we to say? Can Mohammed save? Did Mohammed die in the place of his followers? Does Mohammed intercede for sinners? Mohammed only left rules and regulations. Jesus kept the law of God perfectly and then died in the place of sinners. ‘In my place condemned He stood, sealed my pardon with His blood’!

In Islam YOU submit. It’s a religion of works, and you’ll never know if it’s enough. Christianity is a religion of Grace (undeserved favour), someone else has submitted – JESUS has submitted. No-one else is good enough. (1 Tim 2:5; Heb 7:25 – 28; John 14:6)

1 Man of sorrows! ‘what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

2 Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

3 Guilty, vile and helpless, we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
Full atonement! – can it be?
Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

4 Lifted up was He to die,
‘It is finished!’ was His cry;
Now in heaven exalted high:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

5 When He comes, our glorious King,
All his ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Philip Paul Bliss, 1838 – 76.
Version in Christian Hymns (1978) No, 221.

It’s worth comparing, so here’s a link to three articles hosted by the Islamic site The Religion of Islam about salvation. All three are together in This Link.

The articles are:

Salvation in Islam (part 1 of 3): What is Salvation?
Salvation in Islam (part 2 of 3): Worship and Obey God
Salvation in Islam (part 3 of 3): Repentance

One thought on “Jesus is Superior to Mohammed

  1. This is probably “off subject” however, as I am an old man, perhaps you will bear with me. Although I am in reasonably good health I cannot expect to live forever but before I go I would like to pass on this experience. In about 1945 my Grandfather died and amongst the property that came to my Mother, his daughter was a Victorian sideboard which originally had a large mirror at its back, common enough for the day, surrounded by elaborate woodwork, which over the years had contracted, leaving the mirror slightly loose and annoyingly rattling as people walked past. To prevent this sheets of newspaper had been used to pack it out. At this time I was about 11 or 12 and this mirror with its newspaper was stored in a tiny room that also contained the toilet. As children do, I would sit on the throne reading this newspaper from the 1890s. There was a short article headed, The Sultans Victims. It was a report from the Skipper of a British merchant ship sailing homeward through the Bosphorus when the lookout warned him of objects in the water ahead. They investigated and found that one of these was a sack with a young woman sewn in and surprisingly still alive. All because the Sultan had tired of his plaything, this is Islam in action . I’m getting ahead of myself .The seamen brought her home with them where presumably she lived out her days
