Au contraire Lee I would prefer that people like you would treat others with respect. However I have learned to expect rudeness from compromisers offended by truth. In many countries Christians suffer extreme violence simply for being Christian. So what is a little childish insult in comparison?

It causes me to smile when you call my view point unbiblical when in reality I am the one who quotes Scripture. It is my ultimate authority, but sadly not yours.

Conversely you have not been able to supply one Scripture to support your antiBiblical views.

Trav, in 2 Peter 3:5 Peter says the world came into being because of God's word, then vs. 6 "By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed." vs. 7 "By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgement and destruction of ungodly men."

You believe that when 'the world of that time was deluged and destroyed' it was a local event. Therefore when he writes 'the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire,' this must mean the coming destruction of the earth is also local. Therefore 'ungodly men,' in other localities will not be destroyed!

BTW the local flood idea does not come from Scripture.
---Warwick on 11/18/09


Trav, it is hermeneutics 101 that a word's meaning is determined by its specific context, not by its meaning in all contexts.

The repeated use of universal quantifier "all"/"every" (Hebrew kol) in Genesis 7:19-23 points to a global Flood. While single kol may sometimes be local, double kol must be universal.

Why spend decades building an Ark for a local Flood? Lot and his family just fled from the Sodom area, a local catastrophe. You could do it on a pogo stick!

Genesis 7:19 says '...all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered." As the flood waters had risen above the tops of the 'high mountains' how did the water stop flowing outwards, in your scenario?

//Do you imagine I am in some, even some tiny way, insulted by your infantile 'ASS' taunts? Au contraire I am encouraged by them, and your regular others.

1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world.

The question is: DOes islam teach that Jesus was the promised messiah who came in the flesh? the answer is No. But islam is not alone in this
---Francis on 11/18/09




Islam is not the only antichrist religion or the only antichrist in the world.

1. 1John 2:22 "Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is antichrist"
2. 1John 2:26 "These antichrists are trying to seduce us away from Jesus Christ"
3. 1John 4:3 "The spirit of the antichrist is already in the world"
4. 2John 7 "There are many deceivers and antichrists in this world"

Since love can be one of its fruits, and since that is the fruit of primary importance in Christianity, Islam is not the religion of the Antichrist.

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Show from Scripture that The Flood '..was not WORLD WIDE.'

Erets as a start and end for those that search may see. I've posted you look away. Universalist (catholic's)do this.
Scriptures you post do not say what you need in original language. They do state "eret/kosmos at that time" Kosmos", and word "ge" are used. If subject was word equal another word would not be needed. Kosmos, is not singularly definative and is used like Wally kosmos. Disney kosmos. Kosmos used even of a womans adornment! 1Tim 2:9

Call me exremist if you want, but, in its literal sense "anti" means against or in place(stead)of, then yes Islam is anti-Christ in that they teach that Jesus is nothing more than a prophet of Allah who has been superceded by Mohammed. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God the Father, and any variation to that stance is ANTI-CHRIST whether it be Muslim, JW, LDS, Scientology, or whatever. MANY of the other "religions" have good traits in them, but, good isn't good enough without Jesus Christ.
---tommy3007 on 11/18/09


Warwick, you did real good in answering, so did Ruben. I think when the topic of the Father Son and holy Spirit are explained in a slow careful way it becomes clear who is who. My main concern when speaking about this was that it was quoted that God was not either of the three in the Old Testament, so my question had been, if God was not any of the three then who was He? God as we call Him is three persons, the three we know, and if not those three then what three was He?
Again your explanation were great.
You can amagine the hard time the early church had with the heretics who tried to put in thier own meanings.
---MarkV. on 11/18/09




No, it is not.

I know many loving and caring people whose faith in God, inspired by their lifelong involvement in Islam, has inspired in them greater acts of kindness, caring and all around love.

Since love can be one of its fruits, and since that is the fruit of primary importance in Christianity, Islam is not the religion of the Antichrist.
---Jenny on 11/17/09


Exzucuh, just one of the problems with trying to defend a denominational belief ( as you do) is that 'helpful' Scriptures are selected but 'unhelpful' are ignored or misused. Better to consider that Scripture interprets Scripture and look at what the flow of Scripture shows us.

Jesus is the Son of God therefore equal to the Father. He considered Himself equal to the Father as John 5:18 shows. God is creator, and as John 1:3, Colossians 3:16 show, Jesus is creator-no conflict-one God.

Viewed in this light in John 14:28 Jesus is not saying the Father is greater in power or divinity, but that in His on earth position He had humbled Himself, as Philippians 2:6-8 shows.

This is the greek definition for greater You sure do strain at gnats and I would hate to have to pass that camel. Try a table spoon of olive it will anoint your colon.
---exzucuh on 11/17/09


Exzucuh, regarding John 14:28, Jesus said the Father is greater (meizon) than I, not better (kreitton) than I : 'meizon' is used to show the Fathers greater position, in heaven, as compared to Jesus, at that time the servant, on earth.

In Hebrews 1:4 'kreitton' is used to show Jesus is better/ superior to the angels. This demonstrates Jesus is not just positionally higher than angels, but greater in kind and nature.

The leader of a nation is positionally higher (meizon) that his countrymen, but not better (kreitton) than them.

Consider John 5:18 '...calling God his Father, making Himself equal with God.'
---Warwick on 11/16/09


Exzucuh, the same names/titles are applied to Jesus because they are equal. In John 5:18 we read that by calling God his own Father He was "making Himself equal with God."

That is also why Jesus talks of we and our! One and the same God, in three persons.
---Warwick on 11/16/09


Revelation 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

The Father does not have to overcome, But his Son does as do we if we want to be rewarded.
If you try to make Jesus be the Father you take away the Father and the Son and all the references in the Bible that say they are two distinct individuals.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make OUR abode with him.

Jesus calls himself and his Father (WE)and (OUR)

The same terms are applied because Jesus is synonymous with his Father. Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the EXPRESS IMAGE of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Express Image is like a reproduction. An Image is a reflection like in a photograph or mirror.

John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is GREATER than I.
The one that makes the reflection is greater than the reflection.
---exzucuh on 11/15/09


Exzucuh, the same terms/names are applied to God and Jesus.

Isaiah 43:3,11, Luke 1:47 The Lord God is 'Saviour.'
However in Titus 2:13 Jesus is '..great God and Saviour.' Also John 4:42.

Isaiah 40:28, Psalm 148:5 God is 'Creator.'
However in Colossians 1:16, Jesus is Creator of everything-not a creature, but Creator God.

Isaiah 44:6 God is the first and the last. Revelation 1:8 Almighty God is the Alpha and the Omega.
However in Revelation 2:8 Jesus is the First and the Last, 'who died and came to life again.'!!

Revelation 1:8 Almighty God is the Alpha and the Omega.
However in Revelation 22:13 Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

One God.
---Warwick on 11/14/09


John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Jesus said that I am a god. By your way of taking what Jesus said and applying it to our understanding scripture, then we do not even need God or Jesus. WE are gods our self.

Do you actually think you can take the things Jesus said and just make assumptions of their meaning? That is why we have all this false doctrine. The Holy Spirit is the teacher and you should seek wisdom in the meaning of the scripture not just try to figure it out.
---exzucuh on 11/14/09


Exzuch, If you do a little study you will discover what aleph and tau meant in Hebrew thinking. They were of course the first and last letters in their alphabet, but when used together the term meant the beginning and the end, and everything in between. Totality or entirity.

I think we can be confident Jesus knew this!

Jewish commentaries said Adam transgressed the whole law from aleph to tau, while Abraham observed the whole law from aleph to tau.

By extension Jesus used this term of Himself to affirm He is the all powerful one of eternity past, the present and eternity future. His Jewish readers, knowing the term, would have had no doubt about what He was claiming.

---exzucuh on 11/13/09


Exzuch, Alpha and Omega are indeed the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. However in Hebrew thinking Aleph and Tau, (the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet)when applied to God, meant He was all there is. As the Holman Bible Dictionary says Alpha and Omega designates God and Jesus as the all encompasing reality. All there is, preeminent both in time and rank. Testifying to God's sovereignty, and eternal nature.
---Warwick on 11/13/09


Alpha is the first letter of the Greek Alphabet and Omega is the last. It does not mean all there is, it means first and last beginning and end. You seem to have the same problem the rest of the world has, redefining the meaning of words to compliment your opinions. God is not the first because he has always existed and he is the only God there is. To say he is first would be comparing him to something and you cannot compare God to anything. He is the I AM , the existing, without beginning or end.
---exzucuh on 11/12/09


Exzuch, both the Father and Jesus are the Alpha and the Omega. This term means 'all there is', referring to God's sovereignty and eternal nature. It is applied to whatever is first, either in time or rank.

The be all and end all, lock stock and barrel!

It can't be because Islam is a religion of works, not much more for Satan to exploit than we're already seeing: he can plague a Muslim to be dutiful and kill an infidel or plague one for not doing so. Even an ordinance which can be misappropriated somewhat will eventually lose its validity or be derided. Therefore it has to be relational because that can be manipulated much more than absolutes. It can only be propagated in Christendom: truth is getting harder to impede with such ripening information available, only the gospel will remain so it has to be a covert operation. The Antichrist just needs to make God seem altogether human because that's a god that the rebellious can abide in and the Antichrist can dethrone and usurp.

Rod, Wasn't personal. Just pointing logic. Deeply religous but, not about Christ. What value?

Can you tell by looking a Judean is Judah? Of tribe of Judah? I can't prove it this way. You can't either. Yet we take it at their word that they are??
Why would we? Do something this foolish. We have been blinded by very organizations we were baptized in.
Am convinced they are not fulfilling scripture as country or people also. As a country we have more Judean proffessing that that country. Three times more. Ours are mostly anti as well. It is starting to really show in political areas.

This is why the New covenant reads....both houses Heb8:8.
Now they are lost to all the denom's. Ha. I will sift house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not least grain fall upon the earth.

Trav, I think I understood your point that just because Israel is named Israel doesn't mean that Israel, as we know it, is the Israel of the OT. Is that correct?

I may be a bit defensive, but your statement, "You can't prove they are" is a bit offensive, as I was not trying to prove they are. However, having been to Israel and talking to people there, there are many people there of Jewish heritage, and extreemly religious. In addition,Israel is using DNA to help prove which tribe is which, I was told.

Having said that, I am not convinced that what is happening in Israel is a fulfillment of scripture.

mima, I have three thoughts from three different perspectives.

One, personally and selfishly, I would like to see Israel control all the land. That way I could visit with security all the land of Israel to explore archaeological sites.

Second, politically, there needs to be a solution with perhaps the West Bank under Palestinian control. That would be unfortunate for the Palestinians as they would be better under Israel. However, Israel is racist in the treatment of Palestinians.

Third, Biblically, God will do what He needs to do when He needs to do it. Right now, Israel still rejects Jesus Christ. Apparently, if God is still dealing with them, Israel needs more disipline.
---Rod4Him on 11/5/09


---kathr4453 my thoughts and your thoughts coincide very closely. For some time I've had deep respect for what you think biblically speaking. Now does my admiration of you come from your agreeing with my thoughts? Hummmmmmm there seems to be a strong possibility of that being the case. But in any case I basically agree with everything you've said. I think we should leave politics and organizations aside and become deep followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
---mima on 11/5/09


mima, my belief is this. There is going to be a scorge through the land, and will have to be rebuilt when Jesus returns and Reigns for 1000 years. At that time the true temple will be built, and prophecy states too, that when all is being re-built, others will not occupy.

So, what we see now may not really make a difference now anyway. I believe scripture teaches that during the last three 1/2 years, Israel will be driven out and into the desert.

My thoughts too are the Church will be raptured before this takes place, and are we, should we get politically involved in something we know will happen regardless of what we think should be.

What are your thoughts?

---kathr4453 on 11/5/09


Continuing along this line of thought these questions arise. What should be our(Christians) position as concerned Jewish settlements being built on the West Bank? Also what should be a Christian's position as concerns a two state solution??

Here are some quotes from the Qur'an they use:

(52)When Jesus found unbelief on their part he said,"Who will be my helpers to(work of)Allah?" Said the Disciples,
"We are Allah's helpers.We believe in Allah,
Bear witness that we are Muslims.
(55)Behold!Allah said,"O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you(of the falsehoods)of those who blaspheme,I will make those who follow you superior to those who reject faith,to the Day of Resurrection.Then you shall all return to me,and I will judge between you of the matters wherein you dispute.

When one goes by hearsay, or randomly picks a sura, but hasn't studied the Quran and the context intended for certain verses... or when one twists its words to suit an agenda (as extremists do), then, yes, it appears to be anti-Christ. But, like verses in the Bible's OT, which can appear quite violent toward others, when studied in context, they are better understood. Fact is the Quran esteems Isa (Jesus) as Messiah, as righteous, as the Word of God, the Word of Truth, etc. He is given special reverence and it is taught He will return on Judgment Day. Real Muslims love Him as the Quran teaches. Hardly Anti-Christ.

Ex....the issue goes deeper!

They believe concerning Jesus:

That Jesus was born miraculously by the command of God, the same command that had brought Adam into being with neither a father nor a mother. God has said:

The case of Jesus with God is like the case of Adam. He created him from dust, and then He said to him, Be! and he came into being. (Quran, 3:59)

Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified.

...They said, We killed the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God. They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but the likeness of him was put on another man (and they killed that man)... (Quran, 4:157)

PArt #2 Please print.

There are christians that do not believe Jesus is the Son of God. Any one that says Jesus is the Father is denying the Son. You must believe That God the Father sent his only begotten Son.***

Here's the problem, In the OT God was not FATHER, SON and Holy Spirit.

So when we look at it through NT Eyes, the FATHER is the Father in relation to the Son, His begotten son.

In the OT we have GOD in three persons.

In the OT no one referred to God or Prayed to God by saying Father.

So, with that there was no Eternal Son with the father in the OT.

The word was with God and the word was God. So this eternal Father, eternal Son thing is not biblical to begin with!

Donna, Christian Americans have done horrible acts as well -- and have twisted religion to justify their immoral behavior. We need look no further than American slavery for evidence. We also routinely ignore pleas for help when there's nothing in it for us. Genocide in the Sudan, D.R. Congo and Tibet tell us that the "what's in it for me" rule is in full effect. I'm not here to debate which acts outweigh others, only to answer Pastor Jim's question. Facts are facts, whether we accept them or not.

I'm currently reading a book written by an evangelical on, among other things, the common ground between Christians and Muslims. Anyone, from either side, longing for peace would do well to at least consider that there is such a thing.

Pastor Jim, many Africans enslaved in America were Muslim. Albeit involuntary, they were the first major workforce that labored to build this country. It was a Muslim country, Morocco, that first recognized the U.S. as a country during our infancy, thus sparking our credibility worldwide. Today, thousands of Muslim women and men are serving in America's armed forces protecting this country. Muslim scientists, doctors, architects, inventors and other professionals have also made positive contributions.

Remember it was the Moslems who burned down the library of Alexandria. That library contained thousand of orginal manuscripts of the bible. It also contained most of the 3rd party books about the deity of Jesus and the resurrection. They did this because the said "The world only needw 1 book. the Quran" SICK!

So now we have only a few 3rd party documents about Christ and the early church. We know for a fact there were volumes written, because these documents are cited by early church fathers.

Any religion that does not recognize the deity of Jesus Christ and His sacrificial gift, is Antichrist. The spirit of Antichrist existed when Jesus walked the earth and still exists. The MAN who must conquer and is referred to as the ANTICHRIST, will be very obvious to believers when He takes control. He will actually outlaw Christianity and many will be persecuted and martyred for believing in Jesus.

I think it is really the religion of the antichrist. I'm a christian living in the islamic world, I can testify how their minds are washed since their early days by the teachings of Muhammad.
In islam, you can find an exact picture of the antichrist system. They think they are going to invade the world, by birth rates, conversions, or by war, and they think islam will win over christiandom.
Also there is this brilliant book by Joel Richardson "The Antichrist: Islam's awaited Messiah". I think it can reveal many things.
But, who knows? Maybe Islam will end at the end and another religion would take its turn.

I don't believe so. This is how I imagine it.

The antichrist will have a wide appeal. Thus I think it more likely that he will try to emphasize the commonality of the world religions, also glorifying "moral" atheists and agnostics. When established religions are diluted enough to be valueless to the people, he will direct attention to himself...eventually culminating in a requirement that everyone worship only him.

Any creed that does not glorify Jesus Christ, and properly lead one to a saving knowledge of him as Lord and Savior, is the religion of Antichrist. A Christian is pro Christ, Matthew 7:13-14, John 10. And anyone who is not saved is antichrist, 1John 2:18, 22, 4:3, 2John 1:7.
The Antichrist is mentioned in Daniel 11:21, 2Thesalonians 2:3-4, Revelations 17:10, 19:20, 20:10, etc. Since he attempts to imitate Jesus Christ, his religion must either be a false shell of Christianity, or an amalgam of many religions. It would have to be a religion that appeals to the flesh, and would probably incorporate the same trick the Serpent used in Genesis 3:1-6.

All religions that are not of Jesus Christ are against Him. He said something to the effect that your are either for Him or against Him. Jesus was not inclusive so why should we?

2) Islam does recognise that Jesus is the son of VIRGIN MARY and the Christian bible as true!( a divine origin)their anger against Jews is primarely founded on the fact that Jews have rejected CHRIST AS comming FROM GOD, and have twisted their own holy scriptures? and against CHRISTIANS upon the fact that we worship someone else (so they think) next to GOD deutero 20. they judge all Christianity taking Catholic and orthdox catholics as an example. I believe Allah is God, and many things mohamed said was good, yet he was misled due to political issues at the end.

The God of Islams' teachings are in direct opposition to the teachings of the God of the Jew (Torah, or Old Testament) and Christian (Old and New Testament). To the Muslim, Jesus was nothing more than a prophet. It is suggested that the antichrist will come to power in the middle east. However, he may not be a citizen of those nations. The way Barack Obama conducts himself, and the way he is praised by his followers, he could be an example of how easily the antichrist could claim such power.

Islam is one of the daughters of the Mother of all Harlots. Protestantism is another daughter. The Mother is Catholicism. So it is almost safer to say that all religions are Antichrist, and the only safe thing is a relationship (from your heart not from the building you attend) with God through Jesus Christ.

Not all Muslims hate Christians or want to tear it down. Just like not all Christians call on GOD to destroy the United States like some do.

But Islam is not Christianity and as such it is opposed to those who follow JESUS as LORD and Saviour.
---Samuel on 7/21/08


I don't think so. The anti-christ will attempt to UNITE all religions into a one world religion. It will be a new age type thing like Freemasonry or something else.

It's not just Islam

term antichrist as given to us by Greek translation means an opponent of Messiah (against Christ)

1John 2:18,19 and 2John 7 describe MANY antichrists by idea or false teaching like those who teach the false doctrine that Christ was God in flesh or any man or group claiming to have "special knowledge" which is higher then Holy Scriptures (or given only to them to understand) is antichrist (Matt 13:24-30, 36-42, 24:4-5, Gal 1:6-9, Acts 20:28-31)

spirit of antichrist can be applied to any false teaching of Christ

it is the attitudes and ideas of people who are against Christ - that spirit in the world that is against Christ (1John 4:3, 2Corin 4:4, Eph 2:2, Rev 12:9)

I believe so.
They want to kill all Christians.
They want to tear down the USA from within.
They don't want anyone to call Jesus Christ the Son of God...King of the world. Emanuel. Prince of Peace.
They only know Allah. Only bow to Allah.

We know The God of Abraham and Isac is the only Eternal Father. We know Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World.
WE accept this. They do not. That is anti-Christ.

1st John 4:3 says:
"For whosoever does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, is antichrist"

they believe Jesus Christ was alive and was a prophet...but they do not believe he is the son of God... I respect your questioning...but please before posting, look up what you are saying.

Ah the antichrist. Does not have to be a particular religion. Anyone who is against Jesus Christ, opposes Him, Hate Him, is the antichrist. A world filled to the brime of the antichrist. Toward the end of time there will be a evil figure who will oppose everything of God.
---catherine on 5/21/07


Throughout history, man has pointed the finger to various people to be the anti-Christ. They failed in their assumptions. Man continues this guessing game even tothis day. God will reveal to the hearts of His people the anti-Christ. How will you find out? Just by asking Him and if He finds favor in you, He will reveal. How do you find favor? By having a strong, intimate relationship with God. How do you do that? Like a friend, by getting to know Him. The Bible is God's resume, read it from alpha to omega.

I believe that the antichrist will come preaching His religion which the whole world will follow. The whole world would not be tricked into believing in Islam. Maybe it would follow along the lines of New Age thinking. Whatever the derivation, it will probably seem new and they will actually worship the man of the antichrist and the world will be fooled except for Gods elect. Couldn't be Islam

Revealed: He that denies the father and the son. Anti christ.

Mystery: How does a people or persons deny the father and the son.

Islam is dangerous, but not in the way that matters. But at times I have heard Christians in positions of power suggest very improbable things, such as doubt in the Ressurrection of Christ. I saw a female minister on television (on that special on the Tomb of Christ) suggest that there were contradictions within the Gospels, which were not actually contradictions but she made them sound that way. In that same special, some Christians suggested that it did not matter if Jesus stayed buried.

I doubt Islam is the religion of the AntiChrist. Worldliness is more likely.

That is a strange question why only that particular Religion?I would say any sect religion Or denomination opposed to the Teachings of Jesus as against His word in Matt16;17-19 would be anti, whether it be Partial or total.Would you agree? "Those who are not with me are against me."
---Emcee on 5/3/07


Islam is certainly an anti-Christian religion. But we must remember that Islam was not in the world when first JohN 4:3 was written. Anyone who has any doubts about Islam being straight from Satan merely has to read Islam's holy book the Koran.
---Mima on 5/3/07


The antichrist will rise with a religion which will parallel all religions just enough to pull the entire world into His belief system. Christians at this juncture would not be tricked by Islamic beliefs nor would other religions be captivated by it. The religion of the Antichrist will be something new, influenced by New age thinking and driven by the spirit of Satan into the hearts of the wicked. Its design is to sell itself as the one true religion and the Antichrist as the one true God.
