You accused me of trying to make muslims unhappy. well, if telling the truth makes muslims unhappy I can't help them. In fact I will continue to tell the truth even if they don't like it, because I know I'm doing it for their own good.

You talked about a false prophet who was defeated by one of Jesus's apostle. The false prophet was a magician by the name of Simon Magi. While the apostle Peter was in Rome he preached the Gospel and brought many Romans to the light of Jesus Christ. Simon Magi attempted to undo Peter's work. One day to demonstrate his powers Simon Magi started to levitate. The apostle Peter, seeing that Magi was being held in the air by demons prayed to the Lord Jesus. The demons got scared and droped Magi. Magi broke both of his legs in the fall. Afterwards, he went to a witch doctor who tried to fix him but he died on the operating table(LOL).

Now what can we learn from that story. I would say what happend to Magi is what happens to people who oppose the Lord Jesus.

Jesus warned us about false prophets to come, He never told us about a prophet to come after Him. There is no where in the Bible can one find such things. Therefore Muhammad is one of these false prophets. God never spoke through Muhammad. Muhammad claimed to have spoken to the angel Gabriel, but prophets always receive their revelations directly from God.
