Is the Koran God’s word?

The Koran is based on ‘revelation’ received by only one man, Prophet Mohammed.

Who was this prophet Mohammed?

He was a sincere seeker of God who preferred to go to caves to meditate thinking that God would reveal
Himself to him.

Who dictated the Koran to him?

A Spirit told him that it was the angel Gabriel and gave him many of the verses. The name Gabriel was
known to Mohammed as he knew the Bible. Some are the result of his own experiences. Many of the original
verses are lost.

We are taught that God revealed the Koran to Mohammed?

God’s nature as revealed in the Koran is not what He reveals of Himself in Scripture [Bible and Torah]. This
simple man Mohammed was tricked by a spirit who called itself “Gabriel”. That is why the Koran denies that
God took on human form as Jesus and paid the full price for your sins and mine by dying on the cross.

What is the punishment for sin?

God has made laws and He has to punish those who break the Law. Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is spiritual
death. After physical death our spirit lives on forever, the choice is ours where we go. Romans 6:23 is talking
about spiritual death

How can we pay the price for our sins then?

No one can pay the price for our own sins. Left to ourselves and to our own religions and their ways, we
would all perish. Before God our efforts to pay for our sins are like dirty rags.

If we follow the Koran can’t we come close to God?

The Koran only gives some rules to make a man appear good from the outside. It can never make a person
holy from within. It has no way to save us from the guilt, power and consequences of Sin. We have a
tendency to sin, disobey God and His laws. The law has only one purpose, to reveal to man what is Sin and
what is right and wrong.

Then who can save us?

Only God knows us best. He has provided a way out for those who really wish to be free from Sin. God did
for us what we could never do for ourselves. Praise God!
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift
of God--not because of works, lest any man should boast.

What is this grace?

Grace is found only in the Bible. There is no concept of a merciful loving God who has paid the price for our
sins by Himself in the Koran. God decided to be born as Jesus Christ, the sinless man. He was the only one
who could fulfill Gods price, the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all those who believe in Him.

How can God take on human form?

Why not? Who are we to limit God?

How did Jesus pay for my sins?

He was the only human who lived a sinless life. God demanded a perfect sinless life to be given up as the
price for Sin. He paid the price for your sins and mine by giving up his own life at the age of 33 on the cross
by crucifixion. In my place, He died so that I may live. Praise God!

I was taught that Jesus did not die on the cross?

Even the Jews did not deny that they killed Jesus. How can someone who lived 600 years later in far away
Arabia claim anything to the contrary??
Why would anyone teach you that unless they want you to reject God’s only way out from sin and death for
you? If Jesus did not die, and if He did not come alive again on the third day, there remains no other way out
for us humans to escape the guilt, power and consequences of sin. Also, obviously ten disciples of Jesus and
countless martyr’s would not have given up their life to defend a lie.

Why did God let Jesus die?

That is how much God loves us, dear friend. There was no reason for God to die for us. That is called God’s
grace. If you wish to believe it then you are welcome.

How can God be defeated like a weak person?

What a human mind considers weakness or defeat was the greatest victory ever. Jesus Christ came alive on
the third day to the surprise of His disciples, defeating death and Sin on behalf of all of us.

"I don't claim to be perfect, but I really haven't done anything really evil. How can I repent?"
God hates sin -- all sin. Even a single lie makes us a liar, is it not? God considers it sin. We are all sinners.
God sent Jesus (Yeshua) to save us from our sins by His death and resurrection. Romans 5:8 God shows his
love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Romans 4:25 He died for our sins and rose
again to make us right with God.
You can accept Jesus (Yeshua) as your Lord and Savior only by repenting of your sins, believing in Him, and
being baptized in His name for the remission of your sins. Romans 10:9 If you confess with your lips that
Jesus is Lord and
believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Acts 2:38 Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be
forgiven. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

What are the steps needed for me to be sure of my salvation then?

You need to accept that you are a sinner, and really repent of your sins…and believe with all your heart that
Jesus has died for your sins. God will forgive you and make you a new Creation born of the Spirit. He will
give you the deep assurance in your heart. There is no other way.

What if I do not wish to believe in Jesus Christ?

If you have not accepted Jesus before you physically die, God will ask you how you have paid for the sins
you have committed and since you cannot meet God’s demand, He will have to sadly give you the
punishment which He has declared, and you will go in the Lake of Fire after the great White Throne
Judgment where your sins are read out before you.
God will never force you to accept Jesus, but who would not choose to believe in God’s free gift which only
costs us our pride and desire to sin?
God will ask you why you did not believe that Jesus died and came alive again. What will you answer? Please
let us know.
Praying for you:
Have everlasting peace, joy and an assurance of salvation, dear friend. It may cost you, but the rewards are
infinitely more valuable for you and for God. You will become a New creation who loves to do God’s Will.
