Allah Cannot Compete With the Power of Jesus Christ

Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing. For Christians, it is trust that Jesus is Who He said He is and will do what He said He will do. For instance, "If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, then I will hear from Heaven, and forgive their sins, and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Elijah taunts the prophets of Baal

Christian faith is based on Jesus Christ being the son of God, His death and resurrection, and His word, as written in the Bible.

Jesus and the Apostles spread the Gospel through preaching, but also through displaying the power of the Name of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. "my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power". 1 Corinthians 2:4

Christians can point to thousands of examples of Christ forgiving the sins of reprobates, healing them, saving them, renewing them to become righteous and holy such that they can glorify Christ by the manifestation of His character.

Elijah calls down fire from Heaven

Muslims also have faith. Their faith is in Allah as revealed by Mohammed in the Quran and Hadith. Their faith is taught by memorization of scripture which they are required to believe without questioning even if they don't understand any of it.

They are required to believe what Mohammed said about Allah even though they never see any real example of that manifest. There are no examples of the power of Allah except when it comes to massacres and slaughter of innocents. 

This is not faith, it is fantasy; blind trust! It is like Elijah and the prophets of Baal who were unable to convince Baal to light the fire under their sacrifice. Elijah covered his sacrifice with water and called down fire from Heaven which completely consumed the soaking wet sacrifice.

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is real! The god of Mohammed is not!

Watch the video below to see an example of the difference between Islam and Christianity.
