Can it be argued that any religion is superior to any other? An examination of Christianity and Islam show several very significant differences. Christianity draws its origins from the Hebrew Old Testament which teaches that God never changes and that the law God gave through Moses is perfect. Jesus taught that righteousness is obedience to God’s law, that we should love others as much as we love ourselves, and that we should even love those that hate us. As an example of perfect love Jesus willingly died for the sins of others. In life and death all that Jesus did was unselfish and for the benefit of others. Christianity teaches that the highest form of devotion to God is to strive to be Christ-like.
Mohammad was the founder of Islam. He received revelations from a spiritual being telling him to wage holy war to force the entire world to submit to Allah. In his revelations Mohammad was told that it is a holy duty in the worship of Allah that all non-Muslims are to be hated, deceived, plotted against, enslaved, mocked, robbed, disgraced, humiliated, cursed, terrorized, raped, tortured, and killed. Mohamed spent his life doing all of these things to non-Muslims. Islam teaches that it is the highest form of devotion to emulate Mohammad.
Mohamed became extremely wealthy violating the commandments that Jesus never violated. There could not possibly be two men more different. Muslims believe that Christians are weak because they do not take what they want by deception or force. Christians believe that greatest strength a man can possess is to subordinated his desires to the will of God for the benefit of others. Is one religion superior to the other. What kind of a God would you rather serve, one who forces worship of himself by brutal force, or one who invites you to love him because he loved you first?
