by Anthony Okoro (Series 2)
He declares: “I left Islam because I studied Muhammad’s life; I accepted the Gospel because I studied Jesus’ life”. [lifted from FB (www.facebook com/DoctrineApologetics), March 11, 2020]
(NOTE: We serialize these36 reasons so that we could make a sound judgment on which teaching is superior: Islam or Christianity. Mr. Okoro seems to come from an African country and has a good knowledge of and exposure to Islam.)
Reasons of and comparisons made by Okoro:
4. MOhammad was the taker of life; Christ was the giver of life (John 27-28).
5. MOhammad and his fellow warriors murdered thousands; Christ murdered none but saved many (cf. John 12:48).
6. MOhammad’s method was COMPULSION; Christ’s aim was voluntary CONVERSION (Acts 3:19).”
ET’s comment: This writer submits a quotation from the Qur’an which he has in his possession:
“Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad . . . . .), and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel subdued.” Qur’an, Surah 9:29
Here is the explanation of Jizyah – “a tax levied upon the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians), who are under the protection of a Muslim government.” (From Qur’an footnote, page 248, on Surah 9:29).
