As one can see, the differences between what Jesus said and did around 600 years before Muhammad, as well as what Jesus’ apostles and those who followed Jesus’ message said and did, is very different from what Muhammad and his early followers said and did.
Jesus offers salvation, assurance, and the most amazing relationship humans ever experience: a personal relationship with God our Creator! Muhammad did not offer these gifts and he could not. God our Creator is the One and Only God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The messages that He gave to the children of Israel, including to Moses, King David, through Isaiah and many others, point to Jesus. Jesus is our assurance with God.
As human beings we all like to have access to a life of peace and love. There can be no peace in our heart or between people unless we have peace between us and God. The real peace proceeds from God. He has sent Jesus into this world who grants us that eternal peace. Before, we even took the initiative to love him; God has loved us so much. He made us to love us, and we are made to love him! Love is not based on fear of being cast into hell and tortured forever if we do not. Rather, God freely gives us love first (John 3:16; 1 John 4:10). Through God’s love, we can love him in return (Matthew 22:34-40; 1 John 4:7-8; 16-21)! True love comes through assurance, which Jesus gives!
