Answers To Common Muslim Arguments

Where did Jesus say, “I am God, worship me?”

  1. Go to sheet of “Deity of Christ”

How can God die?

  1. Flesh of Christ (2 natures – Phil 2) died.
    1. Matt 27, Mark 15, Luke 23, John 19, 1 Cor 15
    2. These are EYEWITNESS accounts.
    3. Committed to writing in their lifetime + No new evidence = PROVEN AS FACT -Acts 1:3
  2. His soul did not die.
    1. It descended. – Matt 12:40
    2. It rejoined with his body and rose from the dead. – Mark 16:6, etc…
    3. He ascended (Body and Soul). – Mark 16:19
    4. No souls die.  They either go to heaven or hell. – Luke 16
  3. Illustration – The Quran.
    1. Quran has 2 natures.
    2. One lasts forever (Q 15:9) and one can be destroyed.
    3. If a contradiction in Christianity, THEN it’s a contradiction in Islam.

The Bible has been corrupted.

  1. Christ claimed they wouldn’t. – Matt 24:35

    2. See sheet on “Answers to King James issue.”
    3. In the same way that a Muslim believes the Arabic Quran is “word for word” the scriptures, the same is true of the King James Bible.
  3. Quran dilemma
    1. Bible is from Allah according to Quran. Q 3:3
    2. The Bible contradicts the Quran on several key points. (Salvation, Deity of Christ, etc.)
    3. Allah’s words can’t be changed. Q 18:27
    4. Either way, Islam is wrong.
      1. If Bible is corrupt, then the teaching of the Quran is INCORRECT.
      2. If Bible is not Corrupt, then the teaching of the Quran is INCORRECT.

Paul invented Christianity.

  1. Proved sincerity by his life. – Phil 3:4-10
  2. Proved sincerity by his death.
  3. Accepted by apostles in Acts 15 and 2 Pet 3:15,16.
    1. Q3:55 – Allah wouldn’t let Christ’s disciples endorse a false prophet.
  4. Followed Christ but had different ministry.
