09. COMAPRISONS BETWEEN CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
Comparisosns 3 - The Prayer of the Lost
3.06 - Summary
Muhammad did not recognize the lies of Satan. He surrendered himself to Allah, thereby submitting to an evil spirit that had taken the Arabic name for God, binding that name to its face like a mask. Posing as Allah, Satan demands that all Muslims worship him alone and requires the rejection of the crucified Son of God. To those who worship him, he promises blessing, power, riches and lordship over this world as rewards for submitting to him and rejecting God's Son. The Fatiha is an active means of establishing this anti-Christian seizure of power in the hearts of all who pray it. The Lord's Prayer is not as Muslims claim “the Prayer of the Lost“; but rather, the Fatiha itself is. Even though the Fatiha gives an impression of deep religiosity and piety, in actuality it drives Muslims away from Christ's salvation daily, leading them to a frightening and real separation from God.
But Jesus has come to find and save that which was lost. That is why there is the full and free salvation awaiting all Muslims. But every one of them must acknowledge and confess his own fallen nature, ask Jesus for his salvation, willingly renounce Islam, and by faith unite himself to Christ his Redeemer for all eternity. Jesus will then lead him to the Father, so that he can come to know and bow before the true God, confessing with trembling lips: “You are my Father, hallowed by Your name, even through my very life!“
We who by grace have already partaken of this salvation need to comprehend the we form of the Lord's Prayer and purposefully include all Muslims in our prayers, so that as soon as possible they too may become partakers of eternal life, coming to a saving knowledge of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Let us call them one by one to come into the open family of God, and rest in the embracing arms of the Father.
