On EWTN the theology roundtable (Scott Hahn was there.) was talking about just HOW far away from Christianity/Judaism Islam is.
Granted they abhor homosexuality but they espouse the tenets of Mohammad, who says he got them from God, that is, the four wives, not from God, but really from Mohammad.
The CORE difference between the faiths is the view of God.
God is Our Father who created us in His image and likeness and we are HIS children. Jesus was His Beloved Son and we are beloved children, depending on our behavior. God Our Father send His Only Begotten Son so we might be reconciled to Our Father.
In Islam, Allah is NOT "our father" and we are NOT "His children." The relationship is ALMIGHTY and His slaves. The VERY common Muslim name is Abdullah, or "slave of Allah." The entire relationship is not one of fatherly love and the desire for closeness and for OUR doing well to be close to God.
Scholars believe that this master/slave relationship, without that driving LOVE of God Our Father, is what drives the "jihad" mentality, the killing of infidels and so on.
Just some thoughts.
Good post. I’m convinced that the “angel” who visited Mohammed was Satan.
