Why is the teaching of Jesus better than Mohammed ?

Islam is the second largest religion in the world, there are 49 countries where the majority of the population is Muslim. One way to compare Christianity (the largest religion in the world) with Islam is to compare the founders of the two. The Lord Jesus referred to Himself as God and is God, as we have seen in previous articles. Mohammed never referred to himself as God only as a prophet of God along with Jesus. The Lord Jesus offers to us a superior life of love and good deeds. Mohammed was a warrior who spent the last ten years of his life at war and even disobeyed his own command by plundering caravans going to and from Mecca. The Lord Jesus offers to us superior miracles proving that He alone is God. Mohammed’s military conquest do not compare as miracles, his alleged miracle of moving a mountain was never proved. The Lord Jesus offers to us a life of peace and love for one another. Mohammed offers a life of war, there are 109 war verses in the Koran and 1 out of every 55 verses is a verse of war. The Lord Jesus offers to us a salvation which is by grace thru faith apart from works (Eph. 2:8-9) and assures us of everlasting life. Mohammed offers 5 pillars of; recital of the creed, prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and pilgrimage. Even with that, there is no assurance of everlasting life. The only world religion that guarantees eternal life in heaven is biblical Christianity.
