Jesus is expected to return and slaughter the anti-christ along with the non-christians who follow the anti-christ??
Do Christians believe that Jesus returns and turn the other cheek to the anti-christ????
Jesus is inseperable from Islam. People who are "brought" to Allah , end up understanding that Jesus was the Messiah.
Name some of those teachings
(Love All and Everything are the greatest laws)
Gospel of Matthew
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
(Love your enemies and those who curse you... not execute them like in Islam)
Gospel of Luke
“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
(Kingdom of God is within)
Gospel of Thomas
"Jesus said to them, "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter [the kingdom]."
"...the Kingdom of God is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and it is you who are that poverty."
...AND NEAREST AMONG THEM IN LOVE TO THE BELIEVERS WILT THOU FIND THOSE WHO SAY, "WE ARE CHRISTIANS"1: BECAUSE AMONG THESE ARE MEN DEVOTED TO LEARNING AND MEN WHO HAVE RENOUNDED THE WORLD. AND THEY ARE NOT ARROGANT.
"WE MUSLIMS BELIEVE, THAT JESUS WAS ONE OF THE MIGHTIEST MESSENGERS OF GOD, THAT HE WAS THE CHRIST, THAT HE WAS BORN MIRACULOUSLY - WITHOUT ANY MALE INTERVENTION (which many modern-day Christians do not believe today), THAT HE GAVE LIFE TO THE DEAD BY GOD'S PERMISSION, AND THAT HE HEALED THOSE BORN BLIND AND THE LEPERS BY GOD'S PERMISSION. IN FACT NO MUSLIM IS A MUSLIM IF HE DOES NOT BELIEVE IN JESUS!"
Al-Qur'an only honors Jesus (alayhi salaam), by name, title (Christ/Messiah), and biography. Jesus' most fundemental teachings are no where to be found in the Qur'an.
• Jesus teaches non-violence, turn the other cheek. Islam teaches jihad.
• Jesus teaches to bless those who curse you. Islam teaches to execute blasphemers.
• Jesus teaches forgiveness. Islam teaches corporal punishemnt, execution, revenge killing, and blood money.
• Jesus taught, "he who is free of sin, let him cast the first stone." Islam teaches to stone.
• Jesus teaches to love others as yourself. Islam teaches to love your Muslim brother.
• Jesus says the master is not above the servant. Islam says you may keep slaves, and rape your female slaves.
• Jesus says to love your enemies. Islam says to wage jihad against enemies, and execute apostates and non-believers.
• Jesus said, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." Islam says to pay the jizyah tribute tax.
• Jesus heals the sick and raises the dead. Islam inflicts corporal punishment, amputation of limbs, and execution.
I am only going by the words and actions attributed to Jesus during his life, and not some prophesies of Apostle Paul or John. Jesus in his actual life DID teach to turn the other cheek.
Two followers of John the Baptist witness the baptisim of Jesus in which John testfies that Jesus is one who comes to baptise with the holy spirit. The next day they see Jesus again and begin to follow him Jesus notices them and the two men (usually considered to be the Apostles John and Andrew)
My point was that through Islam 1.5 billion people have accepted Jesus as messiah. Which other religion teaches their followers to accept Jesus as messiah?
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
- Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 7:21-23
I am discussing the words and actions attributed to Jesus DURING HIS LIFE... not the prophecies or testimonies of the Apostles, and not the violence of the "Old Testament."
Most christians understand that Jesus would return to slay millions of non-christians. Which is not only brutal, but also far from the character of the "turn-the-other-cheek" Jesus you are trying to portray.
That particular verse can only apply to Christians.... as they are the ones most likely to prophesy, drive out demons, perform many miracles in Jesus' name.
Sahabi: Please reconsider your act leaving Islam. you should know already, the price you have to pay denouncing Islam.
What Christians? Jesus spoke to no Christians, he spoke to Jews and Gentiles. Christianity was not established until after the death of Jesus.
