A study of allegations against Islam


Dr. Jim Garlow, a senior pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, has written an open letter to one of his pastor-friends “David” (not his real name). The title of the letter is “Jesus and Mohammad….After September 11.” He has also encouraged all the readers to copy, forward, and publish this provocative letter against Islam. Pasture Garlow is attacking Muslims and demanding them “to renounce the many Koran (Qur’an) texts which call for the killing of Jews and Christians” without having a minimal level of understanding of the Qur’an, its structure, and the historical events surrounding its revelation. He admits, however, that he himself has not read the Qur’an and has taken these verses from an article (from the internet) whose author/compiler is not known. The verses mentioned in the article are all taken out of context and neither the unknown compiler nor Mr. Garlow has paid any attention to the verses preceding or following them. It is critical to study these allegations very carefully; as such misinterpretations are also shared by a few extremists among Muslims who have used such verses-completely out of context and meaning- as a pretext to conduct their heinous crimes. This of course is not limited to Islam, all major beliefs and faiths have experienced the same phenomenon, and it is the obligation of all seekers of truth to stand up against such misinterpretations. Mr. Garlow uses these sample verses to conclude that the Qur’an promotes violence and is against peace. He has further emphasized for at least 20 times that according to the teachings of the Qur’an, Muslims are ordered to kill Jews and Christians who do not convert to Islam. Here are some of the highlights of his article:
