The False Religion of Islam

I've saved up just a few of Bill Keller's email devotionals recently that I thought were very on target. Here's another one I wanted to share. I'd just post the link but at the moment there seems to be a problem with http://liveprayer.com/'s database.

If this devotional is a blessing to you, maybe you have a friend or family member that would like to start receiving this daily word. You can forward this to them, and they can use the following link to subscribe.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL SATURDAY DECEMBER 27, 2008
(John 14:6)


The false religion of Islam, and the courage to tell 1 billion people that
they are going to hell. Like all false religions and cults, it has a human
founder. Islam was born out of the rebellious heart and mind of a man named
Muhammad, a Mecca businessman that lived from 570-632 a.d. Muhammad claimed
to be a prophet like those in the Old Testament and wrote his "revelations"
down in a book called the Qur'an. In reading the Qur'an, it becomes clear
that it is nothing but Mohammad's warped philosophy of life based on his
rebellion to the one true God of the Bible, and is little more than a poor
imitation of the Old Testament.

THE QUR'AN IS NOTHING BUT A WORK OF FICTION THAT IS NO MORE INSPIRED THAN
HARRY POTTER OR A HARLEQUIN ROMANCE NOVEL!!!

What confuses many people about the false religion of Islam is their god who
they call "allah." This happens because people who are either theologically
ignorant or trying to be politically correct, speak of the God of the Bible
and allah as if they are the same person. Let me make certain you understand
something very clear, allah and the God of the Bible are NOT the same
person!!! If you study the attributes of the God of the Bible and the
attributes of the allah of Islam, it is crystal clear that these are two
entirely different entities. There is only ONE GOD, that is the God of the
Bible. The allah of Islam is nothing but a creation out of the imagination
of Muhammad, no different than Mickey Mouse who was a creation out of the
imagination of Walt Disney!!!

The bottom line is that all men are sinners. We are born in the sin we
inherited from Adam, we sin throughout our life, and even the Bible tells us
that we have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. My friend, it
is that sin that separates us from a Holy God. But God in His infinite love
for us, made a way for His fallen creation to be reconciled back into an
everlasting relationship with Him. He did that by sending Jesus Christ to
die for the sins of all mankind. Those who follow the false religion of
Islam claim that Jesus was a great prophet but deny His deity. Jesus was THE
Prophet, but more important, He was THE SON OF GOD!

Muhammad was nothing but a false prophet, a mere man who lived and died like
you and I. He was born with the same sin that you and I are born with. That
is why faith in Mohammad cannot save you. It was JESUS who God sent to this
earth in an immaculate way to be born without the sin we inherited from
Adam. It was Jesus who lived a sinless life so that He could go to a cross
2,000 years ago and give His live as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all
mankind. That is why it is only faith in JESUS that can save you!!! At that
moment when this life is over and we stand before God there is only ONE
question He will ask us, DO YOU KNOW JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR BY FAITH?

I love you and care about you so much. I pray today that those people around
the world who have put their faith in Muhammad and the false religion of
Islam will open their hearts and turn from that lie and to the Truth found
in God's Word, coming to know Jesus Christ by faith as their Lord and
Savior.

I can assure you that as long as I have breath, I will continue to proclaim
to this lost and dying world that there is only one name by which men can be
saved, and that is the name of Jesus. Buddha can't save you, Muhammad can't
save you, the false god of Joe Smith and the Mormon cult can't save you, the
false god of Charles Taze Russell and the Jehovah Witnesses cult can't save
you, the false god of Mary Baker Eddy and the Christian Science cult can't
save you, the fantasies of L. Ron Hubbard and the Scientologist cult can't
save you, no my friend, there is only ONE WAY to be saved and that is by
faith in Jesus Christ and Him alone!!!


In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
