Colossians 2:14-15)
Mohammed constrained people by conquest!

Jesus said, My kingdom is not of this world; if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight . . but NOW is My kingdom not from here! (John 18:36)
Mohammed ordered death to the Jews! (see A.Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad, Oxford University Press , p. 369);
Christ ordered that the gospel be preached to the Jew first! (For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.Rom. 1:16).
The Koran says, Fight in the cause of Allah! (Qu’ran 2.244);
The Bible says, we wrestle not against flesh and blood and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. (Ephesians 6:12; 2 Cor. 10:4).
The Koran says, Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them (Qu’ran 9.5);
Christ said, Preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
The Koran says, I will inspire terror into the hearts of unbelievers (Qu’ran 8.12);
God inspires His love into the hearts of believers for the unbelievers to be saved (For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 2 Corinthians 5:14)
The Koran (Qu’ran) is a terrorist manual, which condones fighting, conflict, terror, slaughter, and genocide against those who do not accept Islam;
The Bible is a missionary manual to spread the gospel of the peace to all the world. (And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Rom. 10:15).
Mohammed’s Mission was to conquer the world for Allah.
Christ’s mission was to conquer sin’s penalty and power by substitutionary atonement (For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 1 Peter 3:18).
Mohammed considered Christ a good prophet.
Christ pronounced Mohammed to be a false prophet (And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:11).
Mohammed claimed that there was but one God, Allah.
Christ claimed that He Himself was God (I and my Father are one.John 10:30-31; John 8:58-59; John 5:18; John 14:9).
Mohammed’s Tomb: OCCUPIED!
Christ’s tomb: EMPTY!
If you're a follower of Mohammed reading this and see your need of REAL salvation, please read the following section below on how you can be saved and know it.
John 10:28-30 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.I and my Father are one.
These verses in the Gospel of John shows that Jesus gives ETERNAL LIFEandHe is equal to Jehovah God.In view of that fact, here is the way to be sure of salvation:
1. You must see yourself a lost sinner, under the wrath of God ... John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
2. The only way to receive forgiveness of sins is a blood atonement. When Adam sinned in the garden of Eden, God killed an animal, probably a lamb, to clothe Adam and Eve. All through the Torah, it took the blood of animals to atone for sins. For example, Deuteronomy 15:21 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God. As you can see, the sacrifice had to be an animal without a blemish. When Jesus Christ came, He never sinned, that is the reason He could shed His blood for our sins. John 8:46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? Jesus was born to save you from your sins. Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
3. You need to know that God loved you enough to give His only begotton Son to suffer the agonies of the cruel Roman cross so you can have eternal life. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If the Holy Spirit has convicted you of your wickedness and self-righteousness,are you willing to turn from your sins to the only one that never sinned? Your imin, ulamas and you all sin! The only way to get forgiven of your sins is a blood atonement and the killing of a Jew or a Christian won't do it.The only way is through the blood the Lord Jesus Christ shed for you because He loved you. He is the only person that never sinned. Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.That “ransom” was Jesus Christ’s blood shed on the cross. The proof that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life is the fact that He rose from the dead. Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
4. How do you receive eternal life? John 1:11-12 He (Jesus) came unto his own (Israel), and his own (Israel) received him not. But as many as received him (You), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Will you receive the Lord Jesus Christ right now and ask him to save you the best way you know how? Sincerely tell Him that you know you are a lost sinner, you realize your religion can't save you and ask the Lord to save you and give you eternal life right now.
If you were sincere when you asked the Lord to save you, then remember, 1 John 5:13 says: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life.
