Welcome to the upside down world of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC). Great Britain's radical Muslim group now claims that Jesus Christ was a Muslim. According to their website:
The truth is when Jesus was sent to his people he came with the same message of all previous Messengers such as Moses, Abraham and Noah - that God is one and submission to Him is exclusive. Jesus throughout his life and mission believed in one God and preserved this concept throughout his life. He did this by ensuring that all actions and deeds were based upon the laws of God. Furthermore those who contradicted these laws were rejected and opposed.
Jesus led a life of submission to His Lord which is the essence of Islam. Islam means the true submission to the will of God alone and anybody that adheres to this mission is called a Muslim. Islam is the divine message revealed by God which all Messengers and Prophets followed and called to; including Jesus. This message was concluded by the final Messenger, Muhammad (peace be upon him) who rectified any misconception and showed mankind the complete divine way of life.
It is important to understand that anybody who wishes to follow in the footsteps of Jesus needs to submit just as Jesus did to the will of God. Therefore for anybody to be a believer they must believe and follow Islam jest as Jesus will when he returns. Only by submitting to Islam will one find salvation in this life and the next.
Our friends at MAC have studied the Koran and Sharia law, but they seem to have neglected any study of the Holy Scriptures. For example Sharia law dictates that the punishment for adultery is stoning, this is also consistent with the Law of Moses, but Jesus had a very different remedy. From the book of John:
8:1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. 3 The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4 they said to him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5 Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?" 6 This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her." 8 And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. 10 Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" 11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
It is acceptable for a Muslim to lie to any infidel (non-believer) according to Muhammad, which explains why MAC would seek to convince faux Christians that our Lord and Savior was actually a Muslim, however those of us who know the Holy Scriptures can never be misled and then enslaved by the falsehoods of Islam. "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
