This is seed for study and not intended to convey any pretense of authority.  All verses include links, for study in context.

Muslims believe Christians to be Polytheist in spite of the scriptural evidence to the contrary in the New Testament:

Mark 12:29...The Lord our God is one Lord 32...for there is one God; and there is none other but he:  

Let's set aside terms like "trinity", "triune" and "three persons" that are products of doctrine, and touch on manifestations of God, as found in the King James Bible.

Colossians 1:26 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

God IS.  
His name is "I AM". (Exodus 3:14)
How could we even know there is a God if He had not manifest, or revealed, Himself to us?

1 Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

In the Old Testament we find the "spirit of God" manifest:

KJV Exodus 31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,*

In the New Testament we find the Spirit manifestation expressed as the Spirit of God, the Comforter and the Holy Ghost.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Each regenerate person's body is a temple of God's Spirit:

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

God's Spirit IN us, teaching and guiding us.

Muslims believe that by the Word of Allah, His Spirit was sent through Gabriel, to the Virgin Mary, from which she conceived Jesus. They call Jesus Ruhullah, which means, from Allah's Spirit.
Muslims claim Christians are polytheist for recognizing the manifestation of God's Spirit.
By the same measure they apply to Christians then, Muslims are polytheist, believing in two Gods. God and His Spirit.

Muslims understand that Jesus is a manifestation of God. That the Virgin Mary's conception of Him was miraculous, and unlike any other prophet or apostle. Then amazingly, they deny that Jesus was begotten of God. Consider the term beget:

1. To father; sire.
2. To cause to exist or occur; produce: Violence begets more violence.

If God didn't beget Jesus, then who caused Jesus to exist?

Muslims believe that the virgin Mary became pregnant by God having sent His Spirit to Mary. It's obvious from the term, that if Mary became pregnant by God, then God begat Jesus.

They believe that Jesus was Mary's son.
Who then would His father be?

NOBODY would suggest that God had carnal fleshly relations with Mary in the purely human sense, yet absurdly, that's what many Muslims are taught that Christians believe.
Nonetheless, Mary did bear God's only begotten Son.

Though a close imitation, Muslims are stuck denying the obvious application of the term "begotten" because of their book:

Surah 112:2 Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; 3 He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;

Directly contrary to a substantial volume of verses in the bible that apply the term to Jesus Christ.



Christians believe in God, and God's Spirit, and God manifest in the flesh in Jesus Christ.
Muslims accuse polytheism.

Muslims believe in God, and God's Spirit, and God's Spirit made flesh in Jesus Christ.
Muslims claim monotheism.

Not surprisingly, Muhammad didn't even know what the "trinity" is!

Surah 5:116 - And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah'?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.

The "trinity" has nothing to do with Mary. It is a way to describe God the Father, manifest in His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost that Christians are given of God's Spirit.

1Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


Jews understand God manifest in His Son through the Old Testament prophets:

KJV Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

From a Tanach version - Isaiah 9:5 For a child has been born to us, a son given to us, and the authority is upon his shoulder, and the wondrous adviser, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, called his name, "the prince of peace."

KJV Psalms 2:7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.*

Fulfilled:
Acts 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.


In God's words:

Matthew 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Mark 1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, [saying], Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Luke 3:22 ...Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
2 Peter 1:17...This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Islam has so far been a close counterfeit, but here is a point of extreme departure.

Surah 9.30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

The term "Son of God" occurs 47 times in the King James Bible. That doesn't even count the plethora of verses that refer to Jesus simply as THE Son, as in the preceding, and following, verses:

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

There is no shortage of those in the church that expect antichrist to be a close counterfeit, but are blind to the reality, through unsound eschatology.

Above we learned that Islam is antichrist. Muslims are antichrists.

Muslims - Gentiles - must choose between the 1600 year record of the revelation of God to mankind, expressed in His Word through the prophets, and a plethora of witnesses. Or the 23 year record of the recitations of a single, illiterate, 7th century individual's unwitnessed "revelations" and his stand-alone religion that directly opposes God's Word, and replaces God's love and peace, with pillage, plunder and bloody conquest.


Itís not our intellect that brings us into relationship with God, or perhaps only Islamic sophists or philosophers could receive the kingdom of God:

Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

So all the Islamic sophism, proof-texting, and vacuous censored debate, actually moves one further away from being able to receive the kingdom of God. But once we Gentiles believe in our hearts in Jesus Christ, by believing that Jesus was crucified as a sacrifice to save us from our sin - and we repent - we are then filled with the Holy Ghost. Our bodies are His temple. Those without the Spirit of God cannot expect to understand:

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

In the above we found that God IS.
He manifest Himself in His Spirit.
He manifest Himself in the flesh of His Son.
Did He manifest Himself in His Word?
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
He manifest His Word in Jesus Christ.
Did He manifest Himself when He spoke to Abraham?
Did He manifest Himself in a burning bush?

It would seem we are left with God, and the ways He chose to manifest Himself to us. Three of what?
Might this view help a Muslim or a Jew better understand, just what we Christians believe?




Stunningly, some Muslims believe that the first drop of blood shed by a Muslim "martyr" provides propitiation for the sin of 70 of his closest friends and relatives. To many Muslims an act of "martyrdom" can be described by something as heinous as a blowing oneself up in a bus load of Jewish school children. They throw parties for those so "martyred".

Yet, even though they believe Jesus flesh is of God's Spirit, because of Muhammad's, book they can't seem to imagine that through Jesus' perfect sinless life and sacrifice, His blood would provide propitiation for the sins of everyone in the world who believe in Him:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Had Muhammad been literate he may have learned from the New Testament:

Mark 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.  31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.  32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:  


Muslims know deep down that Christians are monotheistic. But Muhammad taught his followers to falsely accuse Christianity of polytheism. How else could Muhammad have characterized Christians as "unbelievers" to convince an army that it was their duty to slaughter innocent, friendly, peaceful, God fairing people, during the Islamic First Jihad conquest of nearly the whole known world?  

Surah 8:12 I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them

We see the same being repeated around the world today in the Islamic Second Jihad, with over 12,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks around the world, just since 9-11. Please visit TheReligionofPeace.com for news on the latest attacks.

From Voice of the Martyrs, in Indonesia 3 teenage girls were beheaded on their way to their Christian school.  The note left behind read:  "We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and their heads will be presented as presents."
The surviving girl bears a huge scar from their attempt on her.

1 Peter 1:18-20 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Is it even reasonable to suggest, that a come lately 7th century pillaging plundering conquerer would be a final prophet, when he was the opposite of everything that Jesus and the New Testament teaches?


The light of truth that defeats Islam is God's Word, made flesh in Jesus Christ.
John 1:9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.


John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Here is who will be our final judge:

John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

Muslims deny the most provable part of the New Testament by denying that Jesus even died on the Cross. This is so patently absurd it would be laughable if it weren't so tragic.
Virtually all non-Muslims including atheists, agnostics, Hindus, Buddhists, of course Christians and Jews, and secular historians all believe that Jesus died on the Cross. But the Muslims have to deny this simple matter of historical record because in the 7th century Muhammad recited the following during the 23 year verbal record of his unwitnessed "revelations":

Surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-


The sacrifice of Jesus is what the New Testament and His new covenant are about. Salvation by grace through faith to the Gentiles too. The manifestation of God through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. To reject this makes everything in the New Testament irrelevant. No need to try to pick and choose what does and does not agree with Muhammad.

It's easy to see the spirit of antichrist:

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Sura 8:12 (spoils of war, booty) I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them
Seems Allah never collected his portion, of Muhammad and Allah's 1/5 share of the booty!

Islam is a stand-alone religion based on unwitnessed "revelations" of it's 7th century prophet, that rejects that Jesus is the Son of God, rejects the Holy Ghost, rejects that Jesus was begotten of the Father, rejects that Jesus died on the Cross, and rejects His bodily resurrection. Islam stands alone, outside of God's Word, as an opposite.


"Once again, women are the targets. In mid-March, rebels assaulted three women gathering firewood and cut off their ears, lips, and breasts."
"Starting in 2003, Janjaweed Arabs, a Sudan-backed militia, have driven 2 million villagers from their homes in ethnic-cleansing attacks designed to suppress local rebels."

"Eyewitness accounts detailing the militia attacks are horrifying. 'They killed my 3-year-old son right in front of my eyes,' one father from West Darfur said. Since last fall, women have reported more than 500 rapes. Three women said five militiamen beat and raped them last August. The women said, 'After they abused us, they told us that now we would have Arab babies. And, if they would find any [more] women, they would rape them again to change the color of their children.'"


Muslims are necessarily compelled by the Quran, to dictate to Christians what Christians believe, rather than trying to actually understand what Christians believe, through the scriptures. Those that do make that effort to understand, often repent and are saved. The vast majority of Muslim testimonies indicate that they simply picked up a bible and started reading. Why not try it?

Jesus Christ is the Word of God manifest in Jesus flesh:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. 9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Here is how to measure a Christian:

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  

Hitler called himself a Christian like so many other posers. But from the above it's obvious he was not. But his number one man in the Middle East, that shared his goal of genocide of the Jewish people, was the Islamic Mufti of Jerusalem. Muslims in that part of world even today, share Hitler's murderous genocidal ambition.

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Jews acknowledge the Son of God through their scriptures. Some of them have been blinded to the Gospel by God, and haven't yet recognized that Jesus is that promised Son.

Islam is specifically antichrist:

Surah 9.30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!


In Jesus own words:

John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw [it], and was glad. 57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Jesus said that before Abraham was, I am.
I AM is God's name - YHWH.  
Exodus 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

John 10:30 I and [my] Father are one. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
