The Difference: Simply Put

"Wherever you find the infidels, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection. Know that paradise is under the shade of the swords." Muhammad of Mecca (c. 570-632 AD)

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." Jesus of Nazareth (c. 4 BC-30 AD)

Well, that about sums it up.

Another Difference: Simply Put:

Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a gentile ("Cuthean"), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.

Sanhedrin 58b. If a heathen (gentile) hits a Jew, the gentile must be killed.

Minor Tractates. Soferim 15, Rule 10. This is the saying of Rabbi Simon ben Yohai: Tob shebe goyyim harog ("Even the best of the gentiles should all be killed")
This passage is from the original Hebrew of the Babylonian Talmud as quoted by the 1907 Jewish Encyclopedia, published by Funk and Wagnalls and compiled by Isidore Singer, under the entry, "Gentile," (p. 617).

This original Talmud passage has been concealed in translation. The Jewish Encyclopedia states that, " the various versions the reading has been altered, 'The best among the Egyptians' being generally substituted." In the Soncino version: "the best of the heathens" (Minor Tractates, Soferim 41a-b].

Yebamoth 98a. All gentile children are animals.

Sanhedrin 55b. A Jew may marry a three year old girl (specifically, three years "and a day" old).

These are all quotes out of the Jewish Talmud.
The Talmud is just as sick and twisted yet never seems to be quoted.
I guess that is too religiously incorrect.

In the past few months I have read these quotations from the Talmud; the one thing I noticed in all of the sites (usually Islamic or white supremist/identity movement) which seek to "expose the Talmud" is that there is an underlying current of seething contempt for the Jewish people. I invite verification of this by searching the internet and noting WHO is posting the information. I readily admit that I am not qualified (on many levels) to be nor wish to assume the role as an apologist for the Talmud! I am a believer in Jesus Christ. After several years of study, I understand (somewhat) the tension of persecution the Christians faced (as our Lord predicted) from the Jews and Gentiles as well as heresy from within. The first believers in Christ and the primary leadership of the Church were Jewish. On the other hand, our Lord reserved His strongest rebukes for the corrupt leaders who put on a religious show, took advantage of the poor and widows and kept people in bondage. This post is just an attempt to "balance the equation" by posting links to what others have written in response to allegations.

Thank you Dr. Grant for reminding us of "the blueprint"/root from which Muslims and Christians operate. What does the world look like when these are consistently carried out? Holy wars...suicide bombers...beheadings,etc vs compassion...loving one's enemy... A tree is known by it's fruit. Muslim "true believers" can "justify" holy wars, etc. by claiming obedience to their book. They appeal to moderates/liberals to denounce the West and return to the "faith of their fathers". We have recently witnessed one (of many) brought to the attention of the media for the "crime" of converting from Islam to faith in Christ. While he escaped, there was a lynch mob ready to do their holy duty and dispatch the heretic/infidel. Yes, there have horrible things perpetrated from some who as ravenous wolves have USED the name "Christian" (saying "Lord, Lord") to fulfill their own agenda; however, these are done is direct disobedience/defiance of the Lord.

In Christ's love,

One thing to keep in mind, the Talmud is not considered to be "holy writ." Thus, it is hardly fair to put it on a par with the Koran or the New Testament.

MH said...

Another can Muhammad's book be even considered "holy writ"? Last time I studied World Religions, my teacher pointed out to us that Muhammad was illiterate and that there was a very significant gap of years between when he recieved his "revelations" and the time they were recorded.

'All religions believe the same thing' still makes me laugh far too much.

Those words are more true than I think we even realize. I was talking with some folks this week who work in one of the darkest places on the planet. The people they deal with are in the heart of the Muslim world where it is dry and barren, starvation, drug addiction and homosexuality abound. And even a kind word or a smile is like a cup of cool water. The men who have come to know the Lord weep uncontrollably when they discover that God loves them. They have never known love before. I was truly provoked!
