"Islam vs. Christianity"
Pastor J.R. Damiani

In an effort to understand Islam, the religion of Mohammed, we are hearing many conflicting reports and many distorters of the truth. It's not my assignment today to argue for Christianity versus Islam. I'm her to present the facts Ma'am! I will clarify one error: the word Islam does not mean "peace". The word means "submission". Submission is not a bad word – it's the basis of Christianity as well. The difference is that the believer in Christ submits to Him and in so doing enters a lifestyle of Heaven on Earth and a future of eternity with Christ. Submission in the Islam religion is submission to an earthly leader and system that promotes violence against followers of Christ. Let's wake up! How many of our brothers and sisters must be beaten, tortured, burned or decapitated, before we realize that Christians and Muslims DO NOT serve the same God? We love the Muslims. Many Christian Missionaries put aside their own safety to reach them for Christ.
Islam is a religion of positive fatalism – salvation is a vague hope based on works. Buddhism is an intricate system of rules and regulations - all of life is a search for Nirvana (cosmic consciousness). Hinduism teaches reincarnation to insure evil men a second chance of progress upward – and the list of "isms" that will become "wasms" goes on and on.
Jesus was God's answer to troubled times and He still is. He came to give abundance – to help you to live in victory and not in fear. He gives us a formula that promises a way out of your valley. In Christ, Adam's curse was replaced by Calvary's blessing – and benefits. Romans 5:19 "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous." How can it happen to me? John 1:12 "As many as received Him..." Jesus can do for you what no one else can do. Have you ever been around someone who radiates Christ? His fullness makes us bigger and better people. There is new dimension. God has a lot of big people – people with fullness!
No one in the new testament church complained that serving Christ was boring. If you're bored by religion, or legalism, or churchiantiy (a form of godliness and no power), then you're bored. You need to meet Jesus in His fullness. He can put Heaven in your soul today.
