Arguments against Islam

10 arguments against Islam

  1. The contradictions between the Quran and the Hadiths. See
  2. The Quran presents a revisionist history of the Old Testament. Bible stories are rewritten in a way that appeals to the Islamic ethos. 
  3. The roots of Islam are Gnostic Christian and Jewish sects
  4. The Quran is not inspired – eclectic assortment of poetic writings – lacking context and structure – other pre-Quranic poetry was superior.
  5. The issues with the text of the Quran – written partially under a demonic influence.
  6. Islam presents a revisionist history of who Muhammad is. — there is a lack of textural preservation of the Quran
  7. We do not need another prophet. Jesus is the Messiah who was to come after Moses. He is God’s chosen one who will judge and reign in an everlasting kingdom and the fulfillment of the OT prophecies.  We have all the revelation we require through the preaching of the Gospel by the Apostles. This includes the forgiveness of sins, favor with God, and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
  8. Islam lacks baptism which the prophet John, Jesus, and his disciples preached in the book of Acts. The apostles preached to all the nations a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. Islam regards John and Jesus as true prophets, but they don't follow the commandments of them and their disciples. 
  9. The Apostolic writings of the New Testament reveal the truth about the Gospel and Christ better than Islam.
  10. Islam is a works-based legalistic religion and lacks the means to have a relationship with God and experience his presence and power. 
    1. Christianity = Father-Son relationship with God
    2. Islam = Master-Slave relationship with God only

Jesus, not Muhammad, is the fulfillment of Deuteronomy 18:15...

Deuteronomy 18:15 (ESV) 

  15 “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—

Acts 3:19-26 (ESV) 

  19 Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, 20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, 21 whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago. 22 Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you. 23 And it shall be that every soul who does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.’ 24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came after him, also proclaimed these days. 25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ​‘And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed.’ 26 God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness.”
