Proof that Islamic Law Supports the Gospel of Jesus

But How will you teach that gospel to them?

Folks, the other day somebody sent me a Youtube link to Obama referring on various occasions to the “Holy Qur’an,” Islam, and Muslims. The video seemed to seek to prejudice people against Obama because of his adoration of Islam and identification with Muslims. We should feel no surprise at Obama’s affinity for Islam, for he spent his youth as a Muslim.

Christians typically feel disdain for Islam and Muslims because of the widely known Shi-ite jihadist efforts, terrorist in nature, such as the 9-11 destructions and many preceding terrorist atrocities.

It scares most Americans half to death to think that Muslims want to impose Islamic law on America.

Shari’a – Islamic Law

Islamic teachings encourage faithful adherents to worship God. The Qur’an, the ultimate source of Islamic law (Shari’a), also encourages social regulation, a domination of civil law by Muslim clerics. Unfortunately, clerics don’t agree much on Islamic law, arguing worse than the U.S. Supreme Court about its meaning and application. And Shar’ia doesn’t depend solely on the central holy book of Islam, the Qur’an (recital of Muhammad about Gabriel’s revelation to him) alone, but also upon writings about Muhammad and his comments by other authors. So, it can get confusing.

But maybe it won’t seem so fearsome to know that the Qur’an pronounces devout Christians and practicing Jews (“People of the book”) as Muslims, with some conditions. As you know Islam means “submission” to God, and Muslim “one who submits” to the will of God. Surely Christians and Jews can see themselves as Muslims according those definitions, since they do claim to submit to the will of God. They do, don’t they?

Put your finger on the law

But you know me. I always want to “put my finger on the law” as Richard Cornforth has taught pro se litigation trainees for many years. And so, I have dug up for you the law in the Qur’an whereby Muhammad tells Muslims of all kinds that they had better believe the gospel of Jesus, OR ELSE they will suffer “painful retribution in this world, and in the Hereafter.”

Excerpts from the Holy Qur’an

I have provided two translations of Surah 3.055-057 for your reference, you can download the whole book in pdf form here if you want to study the matter in depth.

Qur’an Translation by Dr. Rashad Kalifa

003:055 Thus, GOD said, "O Jesus, I am terminating your life, raising you to Me, and ridding you of the disbelievers. I will exalt those who follow you above those who disbelieve, till the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is the ultimate destiny of all of you, then I will judge among you regarding your disputes.

003:056 "As for those who disbelieve, I will commit them to painful retribution in this world, and in the Hereafter. They will have no helpers."

003:057 As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, He will fully recompense them. GOD does not love the unjust.

Qur’an Translation by E. H. Palmer

When God said, "O Jesus! I will make Thee die and take Thee up again to me and will clear thee of those who misbelieve, and will make those who follow thee above those who misbelieve, at the day of judgment, then to me is your return. I will decide between you concerning that wherein ye disagree. And as for those who misbelieve, I will punish them with grievous punishment in this world and the next, and they shall have none to help them." But as for those who believe and do what is right, He will pay them their reward, for God loves not the unjust.

What does all this mean?

It means that you have proof that Muslims should obey the teachings of Jesus as a matter of LAW, not as a matter of whim, convenience, or religious preference. You see, Christians feel powerfully about their Jesus-related beliefs, but they know better, in recent years, than to shove those beliefs too rigorously onto others. I mean, you can hardly find a hard core Baptist preacher any more who slams his flock with hellfire and damnation from the pulpit.

Muslims, however, believe the Qur’an is the basis for Islamic law, and that some provisions have a mandatory nature. You could consider anything promising “painful retribution” now and in the hereafter somewhate mandatory. If Muslims want to establish Shari’a in America, they will have to obey the teachings of Jesus, as rule number one.

Well of course that won’t have such a great effect all at once because you know how well Christians obeyed Jesus during the Crusades in 1100, and again during the Inquisition in 1400, and in the witchhunts in America and Europe in 1600.

But it does constitute a pretty good start, doesn’t it?

Now, if we can only get them to admit what Jesus taught specifically in his gospel…

Say, how well do YOU know what he taught in his gospel? If you don’t know, how will you show and tell your fellow Muslims. How, then, will THEY know, and how can they OBEY THAT LAW?
