in response to reader comment: Test for prophecy

I had to write again. You told me in the past articles that you do not understand Christianity but you are commenting on Allah. It is obvious by what you write about Christianity that you have no clue about it. You do what most of the world does and confuses Roman Catholism (RC) with Christians.They are not the same, although the media and Roman Catholics call themselves Christians.

A Christian is from the term "Christ's ones" because they acted so much like Christ. It was those watching them and those who saw Jesus Christ that called these people Christians at Antioch. If they don't believe in Jesus Christs literal teaching and follow Him, believing He was God sent to earth, they are not Christians. RC's vote in saints; there is no such thing in the Bible. RC's have Popes; there is no such thing in the Bible. A Christian is one who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ, not the RC's clerical teaching. Crusaders, who were RC's conqurered land, were not Christians. Jesus Christ never did nor was He political. Jesus Christ warned Christians they would be persecuted but He never told His disciples to fight with war. John 18:36 "Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."

He did not say to fight; Mohammed did. They are not both prophets, only one must be. Obviously, Mohammed has caused Muslims to be confused by the worldwide reaction to the polital cartoon. Violence! Jesus warned of persecution but God told His people "vengence is Mine." God can defend Himself in Christianity. Christians if they were to obey the Bible must deliver the message of repentance, forgiveness through Christ alone, peace from the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

A prophet that the Bible speaks of must have no error: Deuteronomy 18:22 "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." This prophet was fulfilled in Jesus Christ. This was the true test that Mohammed failed.

If Muslims obey the Quran, they must fight for Allah and kill all the unbelievers, as I quoted from the Quran many times before but you refused to respond.. What a difference. Is what we are seeing today a peaceful Muslim religion. I think not! According to the Bible, the god of this world fights, who is the devil. 2 Corinthians 4:4 "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."

Please stop speaking on Christianity. You continually display your ignorance on the subject.
