The Hypocrisy of Some Roman Catholics Who Compare Born Again Christianity With Islam

It's absurd that some Catholic Faith Defenders have gone as far as to compare Islam with born again Christianity. Some Roman Catholic sites have gone as far as to call Islam as a form of Protestantism. That alone is pretty much absurd. 

To claim Islam is a form of Protestantism shoots itself at the foot. To say that Islam is a form of Protestantism is a chronological error. This should be a problem. Martin Luther could have not met Muhammad considering the incredible time jump between them. Muhammad came centuries before Luther. If Luther founder Protestantism then how can Islam be a a Protestant denomination? 

What these people are ignoring is the huge difference between born again Christianity and Islam. Showing the differences would show how comparing the doctrine on both sides to actually show the stupidity of the argument. Here are the big differences and where hypocrisies are exposed because these can't be reconciled to each other:
  • Born again Christians believe in the Trinity and they believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Muslims reject that teaching saying Jesus is just a man and a prophet. 
  • Born again Christians respect the Bible as their final authority in matters of faith and tradition. Muslims condemn the Bible as something that has been corrupt and should not be read. Both the Bible and the Koran are not even the same. This also sets Christians apart from so-called "Protestant" groups which claim that they are there to restore the true Church after centuries of apostasy but teach many weird doctrines not found in the Bible. If you stick by Sola Scriptura then you stick to what the Bible says and church authorities govern by what the Bible says.
  • Born again Christians believe in loving one's enemies and spreading the faith in love. Islam teaches that you must seek out your enemies relentlessly forcing them to convert or die. Should I mention that the Roman Catholic's use of the Crusades and the Inquisition was anything but loving their enemies? Many of the Vatican's atrocities involve forcing people to convert to Roman Catholicism. Many Protestant Christians and non-Protestant Christians were all martyred for simply opposing the lies of the Vatican.
  • Born again Christians believe in salvation by grace through faith and that good works come after salvation, not before. Islam is a works-oriented religion. Both Islam and Roman Catholicism require people to do good works rather than teach that a changed life is a result of salvation.

Should we mention that while Roman Catholicism and Islam have different believes like Roman Catholics believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and in the Trinity (and Islam doesn't) but both have some things in common:
  • Both religions have a history of using force to spread their religion. It's always been a religion of convert or die. The Roman Catholic institution has its history of the Crusades and the Inquisition which forced people to convert or die. Islam has its Islamic conquests which forced its captives to convert to Islam or die.
  • Both religions have a long history of acquiring ill-gotten wealth either through direct force, extortion or through subtle means. The conquests done by both religion was a struggle of wealth and not just religion. The Crusades' battle with Islam was not a quest to liberate Jerusalem but a battle of who gets to take over and extort the people. Also, both religions tend to favor generous donations from rotten crooks as long as it keeps them going. Should I mention that a lot of crooked pastors who extort money are also allied with the Vatican? 
  • Both religions have a lot of sex scandals involving their religious leaders. We have Roman Catholic priests who are involved in fornication, adultery and pedophilia yet the continue to serve masses. You have imams with who have one wife and several mistresses who they register as wives (polygamy) who also have a history of pedophilia.
  • Both religions have born again Christians as their common enemies. Read the history both religions. The Dark Ages involved a lot of atrocities to born again Christians done by both Roman Catholic and Islamic theocracies. They have both established countries where state religion was encouraged. Not being a Roman Catholic in a Roman Catholic theocracy is a crime. Not being a Muslim in a Muslim theocracy is a crime.

Ken Ham's Illustrations on Spiritual Warfare Against Humanism

Dr. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis made these beautiful illustrations to show what's wrong with the church today. Let's take a look at the two illustrations on how Christians engage their spiritual warfare. 
The first illustration reveals the following:
One member is asleep when he should be doing something.Another person is firing at the balloons because the person who's supposed to fire it is asleep on the job.Somebody is focused on deflecting cannon balls than hitting the source of the cannon balls.Somebody is treating the whole situation like a game.  
By doing so, humanism is victorious whenever the local church is asleep. This is the problem to why Christians tend to fall down in battle at times:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
In short, if you're not going to stand in the gap on behalf of the land then who will? It's the…

The Ridiculous Roman Catholic View That Marriage Must Be Done Inside Their Church or It's Invalid

I remembered reading through the seven sacraments or ordinances of the Roman Catholic institution in a catechism. One of the teachings is that marriage must be treated as a sacrament. What it also implies is that if your marriage is done in a civil court that even if it was duly registered, that both couples were in a sexually pure union then it's not a marriage. So does that mean that a person can marry in a civil court, get divorced and marry his next spouse in the Roman Catholic institution?

Let's address the issue of civil marriage that is pure and holy. In short there was no incest, no adultery and it was between two people who are eligible for marriage. So why should the Roman Catholic institution even think that two people who got married with the sexually pure prerequisites in the eyes of God should be rejected. Is it because unless it's a priest who performs the marriage then the marriage can't be validated? It's a problem with how Roman Catholics have thei…

Don't Forget That the Roman Catholic Institution Has a Very Long History of Inciting Sedition

The Roman Catholic institution has its long fraudulent history of claiming to be the "One True Church that was founded n 33 A.D. - Holy, Catholic and Apostolic". The word catholic is a synonym for universal but the disciples were never first called Catholics in Antioch but Christians (Acts 11:26). Catholic was used as an old world for universal which some people today are allergic to that word because Catholic has been used to describe people who are members of the Roman Catholic institution. What can be talked about now is the fact that the Roman Catholic institution has had a long history of inciting sedition in governments. While they claim it to be doing the "work of God" or as the Jesuits say "Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam" or "For the greater glory of God." but is it really?

Doing some study of the history of the Vatican has it shown that the Inquisition and later the Jesuit Order have a lot of bloody rags to answer for. Did you know that many ki…

Testimony of Former Jesuit Priest Victor J. Affonso

To Follow Jesus Without Compromise by Victor J. Affonso
Why I joined the Society of Jesus
At the age of 23, I was a successful commercial artist on the verge of going abroad where a job was awaiting me. I was happy at the prospect of leaving India and thereby also escaping the terrible anguish caused of seeing the misery of the poor in the streets of Bombay.
Political saviors like Gandhi and Nehru had failed in giving true freedom and justice to India’s poor majority. Murder and divisions assailed “independent” India, and so it still is today. All the social works were but a few drops of water in a desert. Yet there was still one solution left: The words of Jesus kept coming to me during prayer, “…For with God ALL things are possible” (Mark 10:27). “Don’t run away!” On another day I heard the words, “Follow My Son — Jesus!” This word finally led me to leave the world and join the Society of Jesus, a missionary order that promised by its very title, its “Spiritual Exercises” and its C…

Understanding Ignatius of Antioch's Statement on the Eucharist

It's already expected that Roman Catholicism takes Scriptures out of context and/or purposely misreads it. If they can't even handle the Word of God with reverence then I don't expect them to handle anything else with reverence except it be the writing of the past Popes and the Roman Catholic priests. One such man is the Christian bishop or overseer. In case Roman Catholics want to argue that the term "bishop" would prove he's one of their kind then they are mistaken. To be a bishop according to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 is to be a church leader. Besides, the same passage says that bishops must be family men of moral dignity which is impossible for a Roman Catholic priest who's bound to celibacy. Please note 1 Corinthians 7:35-37 is not a command for priests to stay single all their lives!
Now here's a popular misquote from the very passage of Ignatius of Antioch to justify the doctrine of transubstantiation: They abstain from the eucharist and from prayer, bec…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

God's Curse Upon Gambling!

One of the greatest hypocrisies that people are facing right now is the sin of legalized gambling. Why do I dare say it is hypocritical? It's because for one legalized gambling promotes all type of filth. We have laws against adultery but not against pornography, we have laws against stealing but not against gambling which is really a sin. Today, Christians must voice out not only against legalized prostitution and legalized pornography, they must also voice against legalized gambling. 1 Timothy 6:10 is true that in these days, the love for money is the root of all evil in the secular world plus gambling is mainly rooted upon the love for money. We ought to think that in every way, money is not evil but the love for it is really evil. Gambling in itself is fed because of the love of money. Pastor Mike Stahl a Baptist preacher had also revealed the ill effects of gambling, in truth it is a very lucrative business that sadly destroys lives. To be honest, gambling has been one of th…
