From old Christadelphian writings
The more we compare the religion of Christ with that of Mahomet, the more manifest becomes the fact that the one was of God, and the other of mere man. And so with their founders.
In Mahomet we behold a man of rank, influence, and fortune; a man of unbridled passion and lust; a man of violent and sanguinary disposition; whereas, in Jesus, we behold one born in a stable, a carpenter, with now here to lay his head; meek and lowly; a man of whom his judge had to say,
“I find no fault in him”.
In Mahomet, we behold a leader pandering to human weaknesses, holding out to his followers sensual rewards, and making converts by means of the sword; where as in Jesus, we have one inculcating keeping the body under, and crucifying the flesh and its affections (Read Matt. v. and vi.).
Christ held out rewards that appeal only to the higher faculties, and absolutely forbade force, in the proclamation of his Gospel.
In short, the difference between Mahomet and Christ was as great as that between a wolf and a lamb. One has but to read the “Koran” and then read the “Gospels” to realise that such is so.
