    Islam’s denies of the Bible’s doctrines of and about the actual nature of Jesus is blasphemous. For Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God. That is the Son of God the Father. Likewise, Islam denies the Jesus is God the Son. What blasphemy! For the Bible does, indeed, teach that Jesus is the Son of God, Matthew 3:16,17. First John 2:22 23. As well as hat Jesus is God the Son, Hebrews 1:8. First John 5:20. As a former Muslim who is now a Christian had explained “In the Son, the real issue of belief is certainty entering the Kingdom of heaven in the life and the full Deity of God lives in Him. He therefore is able to transfer people to the heavenly kingdom and unite them with God.” [1] The last three words, “them with God” meaning God the Father. The Bible confirms this about the Deity of the Son. The Bible teaches “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.” Colossians 2:9. [N.I.V.] Therefore, in the Light of the Bible, Islam is a false religion, Isaiah 8:20. John 14:6.

    //Guide us to the straightway: The way of those on whom you have bestowed your grace, not (the way) of those who earned your anger (such as the Jews) nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians)//
    When we meditate for a minute on Jesus prayer we will come to know the flaws in the above prayer to Allah, the most Beneficent the, the most Merciful.

    “Our Father who is in heaven, Holy be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
    “Our Father who is in heaven” Just as we say ‘My father is in London’ Jesus introduce his Father. While the word ‘Father’ brings God much closer to our heart, it could be the first word of globalisation – slowly breaking the barriers of caste, creed and race make us closer to each other. When he exhorts all of us to call God as ‘Abba Father’ he is building a Fatherhood of God and brotherhood of man among the human beings.
    “Your Kingdom come”, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” – It implies that an opposing power rules this world. There is misery and sufferings. We know this power is Satan, as Jesus once said “The ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me” (John 14:30). We read Satan, as the boss of this world, has the audacity to demand Jesus to prostrate and worship him. (Mathew 4:9)
    “Give us this day our daily bread” – God is our Dad and we can ask our daily requirements and discus our issues.
    Forgive our sins as we forgive those who sinned against us: Jesus diplomatically put a knot that we cannot seek forgiveness from God and receive peace of mind unless we forgive the sins of others.
    And lead us not into temptation – Temptations are all around us. Can I cross the road safely? Should I take the next glass of beer? Should I respond to the woman who winks at me? Should I show to this person who am I? Any slack approach will lead us to hospital, Police station or even death.
    But deliver us from evil. – The evil refers of course, Satan
    Jesus’ prayer, applicable to any person from any part of the world, was extemporaneous, when disciples casually asked Him to ‘teach us to pray’.
    Only the chosen people will acknowledge the divinity of Jesus.
