Answering Islam has a section comparing the angel Gabriel, as seen in the Bible and the Koran. It’s just an example of the Koran’s incoherence, compared to the rather logical and reasonable structure of the Bible: but then again, I always suspected that Mohammad was the kind of semi-literate trader/raider that would just say anything to get what he wants.
I consider his episode of lusting after his son’s wife being one of the more disgusting occurrences in the life of this murderous and lying (and perverted) false prophet: not only was this a simple case of adultery, but he implicitly destroyed the concept of adoption – not only punishing all Muslim children who lose their parents, but also poisoning how we are brought from rebellious sons of God, fit only for hell, into redeemed, adopted sons of God. (Jesus Christ, of course, is the only begotten Son of God.)
As we read:
The God of the Holy Bible, Yahweh Elohim, has this to say about those who have desires for married women:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5:27-28
The Holy Bible also says that the true God hates divorce:
“‘This is another thing you do: you cover the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping and with groaning, because He no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the LORD has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. But not one has done so who has a remnant of the Spirit And what did that one do while he was seeking a godly offspring? Take heed then to your spirit, and let no one deal treacherously against the wife of your youth. For I hate divorce,’ says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘and him who covers his garment with wrong,’ says the LORD of hosts. So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.'” Malachi 2:13-16
Hence, Allah of the Quran is completely unlike the true God of the Holy Bible who hates adulterous acts and desires, as well as hating divorce, and would not force anyone to forsake their wives so as to allow others to marry them.
This isn’t the only time that Allah contradicts the true God Yahweh, as the following passages show:
“When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house, and if she goes and becomes another man’s wife, and the latter man hates her and writes her a certificate of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter man dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after she has been defiled, for that is an abomination before the LORD. And you shall not bring sin upon the land that the LORD your God is giving you for an inheritance.” Deuteronomy 24:1-4
“‘If a man divorces his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man’s wife, will he return to her? Would not that land be greatly polluted? You have played the whore with many lovers; and would you return to me?’ declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 3:1
If he divorces her finally, she shall not be lawful to him after that, until she marries another husband. If he divorces her, then it is no fault in them to return to each other, if they suppose that they will maintain God’s bounds. Those are God’s bounds; He makes them clear unto a people that have knowledge. S. 2:230
Yahweh classifies as an abomination a practice that Allah says is perfectly fine!
But back to Gabriel – or, more precisely, that Angel of Light that called itself Gabriel, when it gave the Koran to Muhammad.
We read in II Corinthians 11:13-14
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
and also, in I John 2:22
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
Shall this satanic deception continue forever? No way!
As history pushes on, evil is more clearly revealed to be what it always was… and more directly leads to poverty, failure, and death. Moreover, as technology marches on, the weak-but-righteous are more and more able to resist violent imperialists & oppressors, of whatever persuasion.
God is the standard of righteousness and lawfulness, reliable and solid… as well as victorious. Secularism leads directly to sterility and bankruptcy, so it isn’t really much of a competitor. Islam needs lies and violence and oppression, but all three tools grow corroded and blunt, as this is God’s world: it does not belong to that entity Mohammad has chosen to worship.
