This quote is sufficent in and of itself, therefore I have added only this introduction. Is there any doubt that Christianity is exclusive...thank God.

There are enormous differences between Muhammad and Christ.

Christ fulfilled Old Testament prophecies and Muhammad did not. Christ displayed amazing miracles, but Muhammad did not. Christ killed no one, not even the worst of His enemies, not even those who insulted Him, beat Him, deprived Him of justice, spit on Him, scourged Him, nailed Him to the cross, mocked Him, and killed Him on the cross. Rather, Christ healed and taught and even interceded for those crucifying Him, saying, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34 ESV). But Muhammad killed untold numbers who did not agree with him, and he assigned others for countless generations to do the same. No one could convict Christ of sin, but Muhammad was a sinner, and he knew it…

He lived for 24 years as the husband of one wife, his beloved Chadijah. But after she died in 619, he rapidly organized a harem and over the remaining 23 years of his life he had at least 14 wives and a number of slave concubines. He truly became a slave to sensual passion. The Qur’an that Muhammad wrote said that a man should not marry more than 4 wives (Surah 4:3).

But that was not convenient and Muhammad claimed a revelation that he and he only could have more wives Koran (Surah 33:50) “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thine uncle on the father's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the father's side, and the daughters of thine uncle on the mother's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the mother's side who emigrated with thee, and a believing woman if she give herself unto the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage - a privilege for thee only, not for the (rest of) believers - We are Aware of that which We enjoined upon them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess - that thou mayst be free from blame, for Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.[i]

That was certainly a convenient revelation for notice the language “a privilege for thee only, not for the (rest of) believers”. Jesus Christ was a servant, Muhammad was a sinner.

Not only this, he took the wife of his adopted son, Zayd. But a similar revelation allowed him to do this also (Surah 33:37). As if a harem of mature women was not enough for his sensual passion, he married Ayesha, his favorite, when she was 6 years old. She was only 9 years old when Muhammad consummated the marriage. This history of Mohammad and his sensual passions is laced with evil. Mohammad the prophet cannot even approach the holiness of Christ, whom Mohammad said was only a prophet.

Muhammad died and was buried. You can still see his undisturbed grave to this day, for it became a mosque. However, Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Christ’s tomb does not contain any remains of our Savior. Consider now, which one do you want as your Master and Lord? Should it be the One who lives forever and is at the right hand of the Father in heaven, or the one who is dead and whose remains still lie in his tomb?[1]
