Friendship in Christianity

 

Sami Zaatari

 

 

 

Christians always love to claim that the Quran forbids Muslims from befriending none-Muslims. After they make this claim they conclude that this proves that Islam is a bad religion, and is not peaceful.

 

For starters let us assume that Islam prohibits the befriending of none-Muslims, how does that make Islam violent and none-peaceful? I personally choose to not associate myself with several people; does that make me evil or violent? I really don't understand where Christians get these strange ideas from!

 

Another point is why are Christians so eager to befriend us Muslims? It is as if their feelings are hurt that we aren't (supposedly) allowed to be their friends! Yet why do they so badly want to befriend us? We are the same people whom they label as Muhammadens, rag heads, sang niggers, and oh yes the newest label on the block ?Terrorists'.

 

It's very amusing I must say, the very same Christians who demonize Muslims 24-7, are the same Christians who will cry foul when the Quran (supposedly) prohibits Muslims from befriending them!

 

Now after all this you would THINK that according to Christianity and the Bible that befriending none-believers is not forbidden. Christians have been so eager to argue against the Quran (supposedly) prohibiting friendship to none-Muslims that they have forgotten about what their own Bible says concerning this topic!

 

So what does the un-Holy Bible have to say about friendships and marriage with none-Believers? Let us let the un-Holy New Testament do the talking:

 

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? ... Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord." -- 2 Cor.6:14-17

 

Does this verse sound like friendship to you? Here we see the New Testament strictly FORBIDDING Christians from having friendship and marriage with none-believers!

 

So let us now see if our Christian ?friends' will be consistent, or will they show themselves to be filled with double standards as they usually do. Will Christians now ADMIT that their faith is violent, and not peaceful?

Remember it is CHRISTIANS who always claim that Islam is not a religion of peace due to it (supposedly) prohibiting Muslims from befriending none-Muslims. We have now seen the same thing in Christianity from the New Testament, so will they apply the same judgment on their own faith?

 

There is really nothing more to say but a last piece of advice to Christian Islamophobes, don't throw stones if you live in a glass house.

 

And Allah Knows Best!
