That’s certainly true for religion. True Christianity is exclusive. People who claim all faiths lead to God are lying or uninformed about what the bible says.
There are some things that are negotiable, up for debate, or as I think of them, not ‘dealbreakers’ – but the divinity of Jesus, his death as the once-and-final payment for sin, by grace, accepted through faith… It is impossible to simultaneously believe in the tenets of Christianity and in Islam, in spite of the fact that the Koran has a few kind words for Jesus, Mary, and some prophets. RWN interviews Robert Spencer, author of “The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran”:
Okay, so would you say that Islamic beliefs and Christianity are just not incompatible. You can’t believe the same things about say Jesus, Moses, that kind of thing and be a Christian and a Muslim, right?
Well it’s kind of an odd thing because actually there have been headlines over the last year about an Episcopalian priest who converted to Islam and claims that she was able simultaneously to remain an Episcopalian priest. But, by any sense of logic or the laws of non-contradiction, that’s really not possible. The Koran says that anybody who believes that Jesus is the Son of God is under the curse of God and is an unbeliever. The Koran says that. The Bible on the other hand, the New Testament, says that if you don’t have the Son, you don’t have the Father. These things obviously are not compatible in any rationale sense.
It’s a good interview, read the rest here.
