I work with a lot of Muslims. I will tell you they are very good people. The problem is, we only see the radicals.
I am reading the Koran to better understand. I have been surprised so far to see so many references to Jesus, Mother Mary, Adam, Moses, etc.
I read on a website that an old scroll that dates around the time of the Apostles stated that another prophet would come after Jesus and would be named mohammed. Not sure if it is true, but if so, it would be pretty interesting.
For me, Jesus was more than a prophet, but I think understanding Muslims is key.
Belloc classifies it as a heresy for the reason of the outright stealing/twisting of such basic character profiles and names. The actual display of the names and associated characters is outright false and often times not chronological.
For the umpteenth billion time:
Gnosticism, Arianism, Nestorianism can all be found in the "Christian" portions, i.e. those portions which mention anything relating to Christ.
The "OT" portions are so wacked out and historically stupid that it's all but obvious, if not outright.
The eschatological portions mimic a mirror-negative of Christian eschatology. In other words, their version of the savior, Al-Mahdi, mimics the anti-Christ whereas "Isa"(man-boy-retard version of Jesus) mimics the false prophet. I'm not saying that mohammedanism IS the end-times "religion"/political system, just saying.
Gnostic scrolls and/or not-the-Gospel "gospel" about a new prophet to come is by definition anti-Christ.
Sheesh, it's like people reading a transcript to a Satanic Black Mass and saying, "Well, it's all in reverse, but it says Jesus in it and they consecrate the Host!".
Yeah, that's true; it's also Satanic.
