ISLAM'S CLAIM TO BE
"The only true religion in the sight of God." (Koran 3:19,86; 5:86) IS FALSE,
BECAUSE THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOUR INCONTESTABLE FATAL FLAWS IN ITS FOUNDATION.
RIGHT-REASON PREVAILS OVER ISLAM Item 1. From the beginning, God's own Plan for man's salvation was that it would unfold through the ancestral line of Abraham's miraculously conceived son Isaac, and Isaac's son Jacob (Israel) from whose son Judah's line (the Jews) would emerge the prophesied Jewish Messiah who said himself, "Salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22, Luke 24:27). "None can come to the Father except by Me." (John 14:6). In other words, God's promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3; 17:1-7, 15-16, 19; 22:1-18) was NEVER going to be fulfilled through the line of Ishmael of which line is the angel-deceived Muhammad with his ideology and its claim to be, "the only true faith in God's sight." (Koran 3:19) Refer to Article 13 - Salvation History.
Item 2. That Muhammad's 'angel' was a lying impostor is made patently clear in the fact that when the Angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin, he said to her that the Child to be born of her would be conceived in her by the overshadowing power of the Holy Spirit and be a King called "the Son-of-God". (Luke 1:35, 1 Timothy 6:15, Apocalypse 17:14; 19:16) His claim to be Gabriel is completely undone in His declaration to Muhammad that, "the Messiah was no more than an Apostle." (Koran 5:75;19:88) His contradicting of the true Angel Gabriel exposed him to be, not Gabriel, but a lying, impersonator who had deceived Muhammad from the beginning. The father of lies is Satan. (John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 11:14; 2 Thessalonians 2:9; 1 Peter 5:8)
Item 3. The Son was NEVER an Apostle. He was always the Son-of-God-Messiah, fulfilling the prophecies of the Old Testament that, "God Himself will come and save you." (Isaiah 19:20 & 35:4-6) He would be born of a Virgin in Bethlehem (Micheas 5:2) and "go forth as a Mighty Man." (Isaiah 42:13) He would be called "Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty..." (Isaiah 9:6) and would also be called "Emmanuel" which means "God-with-us". (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23) "In Him dwelt the fullness of the Godhead, bodily." (Colossians 2:9) "His going forth is from eternity...." (Micheas 5:2) "Truly, this man was the Son of God" (Daniel 2:44; 7:13-14, 27; Mark 14:61-62; 15:39; John 1:1-14; Acts 1:20)
Item 4. In the beginning: God (plural) said, "Let Us make man in Our image", (Genesis 1:26) And it was the Messiah who confirmed the Divine Godhead to be a Unity of three eternal Divine Persons characterized by their names: the Father (as Source-Generator), the Son (as the eternally generated Living Son-Image of the Father), and the Holy Spirit, being the Uni-Spirit issuing simultaneously and eternally from both Father and Son, (Matt. 28:19 & 1 John 5:7) such that the Son could proclaim, "The Father and I are One." (John 10:30) "Whoever sees Me, sees the Father, and henceforth you have seen Him." (John 14:7,9) "Whatever the Father does, the Son does too." (John 5:19) "Before ever Abraham was, I Am." (Exodus 3:14; John 8:58) And it was by the operation of their One Holy Spirit issuing simultaneously from them both, that the Son was incarnated in the womb of the Virgin. (Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14) The Divine Unity is such that where one acts, all act. (See Article 20 - Understanding the Holy Trinity)
Upon his lie of Item 2; Muhammad's angel lead him to believe his further denial of the Messiah's Son-Divinity (Item 3); and his denial of the Trinity of Persons present in the Godhead (Item 4).
The lying, deceiving angel's whole plan was to discredit the true "Salvation-is-of-the-Jews-Son-of-God" religion (Isaiah 35:4; John 4:22; Luke 1:35; 24:27) and supplant it with a false ideology comprised of half-truths and lies masquerading as Divine Truth. (Koran 3:19; Galations 1:8; 2 Thessalonians 2:14)
Inexplicably, Islam's deceptions have held sway for fourteen centuries.The falsity of the Koranic claims in 2, 3 & 4 above have been irrefutably demonstrated.
