A Comparison between Jesus and Muhammad
Following is a chart that shows some of the strong differences between Jesus and Muhammad. The Muslims revere Muhammad as the greatest of prophets, yet Jesus clearly demonstrated greater authority, teaching, and miracles than Muhammad ever did. Why would anyone want to follow Muhammad over Jesus when Jesus claimed to be divine, performed many miracles, said he alone was the truth, raised people from the dead, and rose from the dead himself and Muhammad did none of these things. However, Muhammad did have people killed, spread his religion through war, married a very young girl and had relations with her when she was nine years of age, and taught hatred of Jews and Christians.
My observation also:
Jesus: poor, working man
Muhammad: Rich, aristrocrat
Jesus: Was crucified for our sins
Muhammad: died of old age.
I am taking the responsibility to educate myself on Muslim faith, at first the similarities were troubling. but my journey is just beginning, and thus far the truth: Jesus lived and died by turning the other cheek, forgiving the unforgivable, blessing the undesirable, and preaching and healing the infirm of spirit and body. He died a horrible death of crucifixion. Muhammad did none of these things. He created war to propagate his self-righteousness. He never worked menial labor, he never turned the other cheek towards his opponents, and he merely killed them. He had no patience for virtues other than his created own. He died a rich old man in the comfort of his bed.Many people died in the name of Jesus and Muhammad, but Jesus never killed to perpetuate his cause, all others who killed did so for their own self-righteous indignations.
