The “Chrislam” folks like to make you believe that the “religion of peace” is just an offshoot of Christianity and that Muslims serve the same God as the God of the Bible. Make no mistake – they do not! The god of Islam is in no way the same as the God of the Bible and this Talking Point will show you yet another difference between them. One of them, the God of the Bible, will allow you live the life you want without interference from Him, while the other, false god of Islam demands your respect and loyalty or your head! Literally!
One of the main objections Chrislam folks get from the audience when they teach their heresy is the jizyah – the “thank you for letting me live” money that dhimmis (those who live under Islamic law but are not Islamic) have to pay in order to continue to live in that area. Some Islamic countries won’t allow this (and the Chrislam folks teach them as their answer – “No, that doesn’t exist anymore”), but the only reason they don’t allow it is because they won’t allow ANYTHING OTHER THAN ISLAM in their country. In other words, it’s a fascist country run by a dictator with ZERO TOLERANCE. In other countries, yes, the jizyah still exists in accordance with the Quran:
“Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”
Okay, so that doesn’t say “jizyah” in particular. But it does! It uses the term “tribute” in this English translation…let’s see another:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.”
Do you see it now? So how can it be that the Chrislam folks say the jizyah is no longer used when it is clearly called for by the evil Quran? One of the reasons they deny its existence is because it isn’t a “pretty” thought to have in a “church” with “Christians” in attendance trying to “love their neighbor”. The jizyah is not love (for that matter, neither is the god of Islam) but it is certainly a requirement.
You see, in Islam, and that means right here in America if we let Shariah law take over the courts and the land (see Special Point #4), there are only three choices for you if you are not a Muslim: you may convert (turn your back on God (of the Bible) and submit to Islam), you may pay the “thank you for letting me live” jizyah money, or you will be killed! There is no other option for you. Muslims who read and follow the Quran know nothing of assimilation or tolerance. Muslims who read and follow the Quran understand that their example is a pedophile polygamist murderer bent on total (read that TOTAL) submission to the false moon god of Islam. There is no middle ground (unless you count taqiyya).
What are the options from God (of the Bible)? Will He allow you to live in His land without accepting His Son as Savior? Yes. If they are the same gods, why won’t “he” (the same he, obviously) allow the same for the Muslim lands? People don’t think about it like this because they’re too busy creating the god they want to serve to stop and see the Truth (of the Bible) that really exists. But the reason the two gods allow different things is that they are two different gods (see Talking Point #5).
What about love? Is the god of Islam mandating your love? No, and neither does the God of the Bible, but for different reasons. You see, the god of Islam does not love you or anyone who follows him; in fact, he’s not capable of loving mankind and by the same token, doesn’t want mankind to love him. He’s a god of hatred, not love. God (of the Bible) on the other hand, wants your love so desperately that He gave His only begotten Son to die for you in hopes that you would return His love. He’s *IS* love! But as we just said, neither of them is going to MANDATE that you love them: the god of Islam only wants to use you to his advantage – to keep you away from the God of Love of the Bible. The God of the Bible wants your love and wants to give you His – to keep you away from eternal separation from Him. He is the Creator and He created you for Himself, in His image, just so He could shower you with His love. See the difference?
So the “jesus in the Quran” folks get it wrong each time they try to tell you that the jizyah no longer exists. They get it wrong when they say the God of the Bible is the same as the god of Islam, and they definitely get it wrong with their very seminar title.
Jesus is NOT in the Quran!
