What is Islam?

Islam is the religion of MuslimsĀ and is monotheistic. Their book is the Qu’ran, their god is Allah, and they follow a man who they call, Prophet Muhammed. There are many reasons why Islam is incorrect in its teachings but the number one reason I will give is that Islam denies Jesus as the Son of God. They also deny His resurrection and being baptized and born again of the Spirit.

Islam started in 7th-century Saudi Arabia by Muhammed. He dedicated the remainder of his life (he was 40 at the time) to spreading a message of monotheism in a polytheistic world. In 622, he fled north to the city of Medina to escape growing persecution because he wouldn’t leave leaders of tribes there alone. This event marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar. Around 630, Muhammad returned to Mecca with an army and conquered the city for Islam. By Muhammad’s death, 50 years later, the entire Arabian Peninsula had come under Muslim control by conquests.

Islam is the second largest religion with a growing plus 1.6 billion people. Muslims reject the Bible claiming it is corrupt (Muhammed said so) and in doing so, they reject most knowledge of God.

(Gal 1:6) I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
(Gal 1:7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
(Gal 1:8) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
