The Koran is not peaceful

The Abrahamic religions contain a vast array of books, traditions and beliefs. They all stem from the story of Abraham and Abraham’s son of promise. There are three main religions which are Judaism, Christianity and Islam. There are so many sects and denominations, offshoots of offshoots, but these main religions teach very different things.

The things that are taught under each one of them are so different I am amazed that the “coexist” bumper sticker exists. There is no way for these three (not including the other four under the “coexist” umbrella) to exist in harmony, specifically Islam. The teachings of Islam are so violent in nature, as you can see if you just watch the news for 10 minutes.

I am tired of hearing newscasters say that Islam is a peaceful religion mainly because that is a lie. The people that say that might just be ignorant of the teachings. I first heard the phrase “that Islam is religion of peace” from George W. Bush shortly after 9/11. The world likes to think that a religion couldn’t possibly teach murder, but according to the Koran death and murder is allowed, even encouraged.

The Koran… 8:12 When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

I’m no geinues geunis genius, but that doesn’t sound very peaceful. This is also what we are seeing in the news. So far, we have seen five beheadings, even one here in the U.S. in the name of Islam. The ones that have done the beheading are just doing what their scriptures say to do.

Read all of these other quotes. How can this be a religion of peace?

5:51 O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not take the jews and the Christians for your allies: they are but allies of one another and whoever of you allies himself with them becomes, verily, one of them; behold, God does not guide such evildoers.

And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers!

I’m sure someone reading this is going to say that Bible is also violent, and yes, it is. More accurately, it was. The Tanakh (the Old Testament) has very violent stories, but those days are over. The majority of the stories are about Abraham’s descendants conquering the land that was promised to them, which should be supported by all three religions.

Yeshua (Jesus) also had one very violent quote that can be taken out of context, so I’m going to address that. In Matthew 10:34, Yeshua says:

Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Do not take that out of context! Read the linked verses to understand what was being taught. To summarize it, basically Yeshua was teaching that He came, and it will cause division between family members. His teachings were were going to upset the religious community of His day.

Think about the B’rit Hadashah (The New Covenant / New Testament), it has so many verses teaching love, patience and kindness. That is the main message in the Bible, that He loves you so much He will die for you.

It is quite the contrary than the Koran. Instead of loving and praying for people who do not believe, the Koran teaches that they should be murdered if they don’t convert. Please never believe that Islam is a religion that is peaceful, not one that can coexist with any other religion. Islam teaches that if you do not believe, you should die. Facts are facts.
