...Here is what the Bible says about People:

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4) ESV

This scripture--1 Timothy 2:1-4--was said to the Muslim people, inspired by God through Paul. It was said to the people of Chechnya, and Brittan, the ancient Turks, the Inuit in Canada's Northwest Territories. It was given to the French, the Russians and the Samoans. It was said for all people who ever lived; who will ever live...

Now, examine the following scriptures to see if any thinking system--other than Christianity--fills the bill as God's revealed word--without even one false statement coming from any patriarch or prophet......Here is what the Bible says about False Prophets:

"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them...." (1 John 4:1-6) ESV

"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction." (2 Peter 2:1) ESV

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves." (Matthew 7:15) ESV

"And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." (Revelation 20:10) ESV

"He also will drink the wine of God's wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.” (Revelation 14:10-11) ESV

The key to avoid false religion is to practice what I call the Two P's... Prayer and Perusal. Every single day, Take it to the Lord in Prayer. And peruse the Bible daily. In this way, we will stay close to our Heavenly Father...

I was a moslem until I graduated from University. I attended two different madrasahs, therefore I was well versed with the religion. Being moslem is an experience that totally projects a life into a perversion of truth. I thank God that He saved me and my family and that we have been set free by the truth. Indeed God's people are destroyed for lack of knowledge - Hosea 4:6. Let's keep praying for their salvation!
