Comments on MUSLIM:
What You Need to Know About the World’s Fastest Growing Religion
Kindle Edition (Hanegraaff, Hank)
QUOTE FROM THE BIBLE GOD: “I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, ‘My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them’” (Isaiah 48:5). Or in the words of Jesus, “I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe” (John 14:29).

COMMENT: Being able to predict the future, is a sign that there is a real God and other gods are fake.  Isaiah warns that you can recite prayers that do not work and still think they work.  As for Jesus, his prediction and its completion are recorded after the event proving he had no ability to read the future at all.  Not a single "fulfilled" Bible prophecy can be proven to have been written before the event.

QUOTE: It should also be noted that while crucifixion is a major Qur’anic theme—as in Qur’an 5:33, where the penalty for disbelief in this life is “execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land” —Allah can’t so much as get the origin of crucifixion straight. Instead, he rips it out of its historical context and anachronistically places it in ancient Egypt at the time of Moses and Joseph.  As Muslims must surely know, this is historical revisionism at its worst. Crucifixion was invented by the Persians and later perfected by the Romans long after the time of Moses.  The Study Quran adds to this inexplicable historical blunder indicating that in accord with Muslim commentators “the first person to execute the punishment of ‘cutting off hands and feet on alternate sides’ and crucifixion was Pharaoh.”

COMMENT: An example again of how religions that do retcons on history like Islam and Mormonism are to be opposed.  They care only about what they want to think of history not about history.  Matters that should be about evidence not belief should be respected as such.  They are accusing those who know better of lying.

If crucifixion is interpreted as cutting off hands and feet that is another divergence from Christianity which says it is nailing the hands and feet.

QUOTE: The unitarian Allah of Islam, by definition, lacks the moral perfection of love and, thus, on the basis of logic, is morally defective.

COMMENT: A morally faulty god will not be good for his worshippers.  He is a flawed or even bad example.  For Christians, God is Father and Son and Holy Spirit - three persons in one being.  It is not three Gods in God or three persons in one person.  They love each other perfectly so essentially the Christian definition of God is relationship.  The Christian assertion that God is Father and loves the Son and the Holy Spirit cannot be understood for we cannot know what it is like for one being to have three "persons" who love each other.  So that cannot give us a God we truly can relate to so again we end up with a morally defective objection of adoration.  The real god worshipped is not love but moral imperfection and perhaps evil.

QUOTE: One cannot be in Christ, for Christ is not God. Nor is there any need or room for the atonement of the cross. All one can hope for is that our good deeds outweigh the bad.  Once the records of the deeds are distributed among the resurrected, the weighing of actions on the scales takes place: We shall set the just scales for the Day of Resurrection, and no soul shall be wronged in aught. Even if it be the weight of a mustard seed, We shall bring it. And We suffice as Reckoner ([Q] 21:47; see also 7:8; 23:102–3; 101:6–11).193 In other words, for those whose good works outweighs their bad, paradise awaits. Conversely, for those whose bad deeds outweigh their good, the fires of hell await. “The Fire will burn their faces, and they will therein grin, with their lips displaced” (Q 23:104).

COMMENT: It is not strictly speaking good works but obediently good works.  So it is good to obey Allah and have a number of wives though this is definitely not a true good work.  What about jihad?  What about persecuting Christians for their faith?  So if the obedient works are bigger in number or value than the bad ones it follows that a Muslim can drink and go to the brothel and if he fights for Allah and dies that big work tips the scales so he will go to Heaven.  Even if Islam says Islamist terrorism is a sin that matters not if it is one sin among many.  And even if it is wrong but down to a mistaken conscience it will not be counted a sin. 

To have salvation if you do 1000 bad works and 1001 good ones, is totally different from the gospel teaching of divine grace and that it is that which saves not good works as such for you cannot be so arrogant to presume  you can earn Heaven from God.

QUOTE FROM ISLAMIC TRADITION ABOUT JESUS WHO IS "a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizya. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him."

COMMENT: This contradicts the Christian doctrine that Jesus has already died and will never die again.  This Jesus in Christian terms is antichrist - the substitute Christ who opposes the real one.

QUOTE FROM AISHA THE PROPHET'S WIFE: ‘I said to ‘Aisha, “O Mother! Did Prophet Muhammad see his Lord?” ‘Aisha said, “What you have said makes my hair stand on end! Know that if somebody tells you one of the following three things, he is a liar: Whoever tells you that Muhammad saw his Lord, is a liar.” Then ‘Aisha recited the Verse: “No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. He is the Most Courteous Well-Acquainted with all things.” [Q 6:103] “

COMMENT: Denies the core Christian teaching that Jesus was able to communicate God to us for he seen him.

QUOTE: Sahih al-Bukhari records, “Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death)” (Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64 [see also Numbers 65 and 88], See also Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 2346; Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 87, Number 140 (see also Number 139); Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3309. See also Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Numbers 3309 and 3310 (cf. 3311).

COMMENT: Interesting!  Jesus whose teachings were mined by Muhammad banned young girls from divorcing their husbands on the basis that it was making the men sin.  Yet these girls were underage in many cases.  It is indeed Islamaphobic for Christians to say Muhammad was a danger to female children for they should look at their own religion first.

QUOTE: The Qur’an refers to Jesus as “faultless” (19:19) and “blessed” (19:31) and never implies that Jesus sinned (whereas the Qur’an requires Muhammad to seek forgiveness for his sin; see 40:55; 47:19; cf. 48:2).

COMMENT: It might be said that as Muhammad is superior to Jesus despite being a sinner that this shows just how extremely important to God Muhammad was.  Despite his freedom from sin Jesus cannot compare.

Anywhere here is Qur'an 47:19 where Muhammad begs for forgiveness for himself as well as his disciples: "Know that there is no deity but God. Implore Him to forgive your sins and to forgive the true believers, men and women. God knows your busy haunts and resting places." Dawood translation.

Here is the Pickthall translation: "So know (O Muhammad) that there is no God save Allah, and ask forgiveness for thy sin and for believing men and believing women. Allah knoweth (both) your place of turmoil and your place of rest."

QUOTE: In Romans 10:13, Paul equates calling on Christ with calling on Yahweh (Joel 2:32); and in Philippians 2:9–11, he equates bowing to and confessing the name of Jesus with bowing to and confessing the name of Yahweh (Isaiah 45:22–25), further demonstrating that Jesus is himself almighty God.

COMMENT: If it is true that the first Christian writings, these letters, say Jesus is God then that is historic evidence that Islam has the wrong Jesus.
