The Failure Of
3 Human Religions
All religions have a dark side. The Qur’an has much to say concerning the negative side of “Jews” and “Christians.” All that is mentioned for one religion is applicable to the other two (including Muslims).
What is this dark side? Man-made religion. Rather than obey the truth, men make their own rules and teach them in place of what God taught. This is why many who claim to believe do not even know or read their own “scriptures”.
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
---KJV Matthew 15:8-9
Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
---KJV Isaiah 29:13
The end result of man made religions is confusion and chaos. Theories are taught as fact. Ideas and opinions are considered sacred. Tradition is elevated to the level of God’s laws. Places of worship are considered holy. Any disagreement is considered heresy. People are persecuted for believing the wrong things. People persecute others who believe differently. And God’s word is twisted to mean what it does not.
The Negative Side Of Israel
1. They accepted and rejected parts of the Book and Covenant.
Surah 2:83 And remember We took a covenant from the Children of Israel (to this effect): Worship none but Allah; treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity. Then did ye turn back, except a few among you, and ye backslide (even now).
Surah 2:84 And remember We took your covenant (to this effect): Shed no blood amongst you, nor turn out your own people from your homes: and this ye solemnly ratified, and to this ye can bear witness.
Surah 2:85 After this it is ye, the same people, who slay among yourselves, and banish a party of you from their homes; assist (Their enemies) against them, in guilt and rancour; and if they come to you as captives, ye ransom them, though it was not lawful for you to banish them. Then is it only a part of the Book that ye believe in, and do ye reject the rest? but what is the reward for those among you who behave like this but disgrace in this life?- and on the Day of Judgment they shall be consigned to the most grievous penalty. For Allah is not unmindful of what ye do.
Surah 2:86 These are the people who buy the life of this world at the price of the Hereafter: their penalty shall not be lightened nor shall they be helped.
