The Islam founder? Prophet? Recent findings from review of the most ancient records of Islam brings to question the entire roots and text they consider from Allah. The sayings at the dome of the rock make best sense if read to think the 'blessed one'(Muhammad) is Jesus Christ, but that they believed Jesus Christ to be a mere prophet and not the son of God, and not slain on the cross and resurrected. It fits perfectly. So does historical evidence that a sect of heretical Christians were basically driven out of Jerusalem about the same time Islam started and they had gone towards where Islam started. Strange theory is also that the RCC is the actual author of the Koran? I don't know about that, but I'm pretty sure it's a fabricated religion, as LDS is. Smith claimed to be the 'American Muhammad':-), but you don't see that quote in 'faith building' LDS publications;-)Barns web do you agree we should know of the great false prophet today even though we may not know for sure that he is the great false prophet. Of the choices which do you think may have been the most false? Muhammad may be more of an antichrist type although I think he could be considered a false prophet also has a large following. The Pope has a large following, has occupied his thrown claiming he is vicar of Christ, worshipping Mary, and doing a lot of things contrary to the bible, including claiming the real church is not because they are not part of his church. Then we have Paul who has written most of the new testament and is not strongly verified as an apostle and does seem to sometimes be contradicting other parts of the bible. It is hard to pick of of those three not to mention other possibilities. My guess is you think Paul is the top contender but the others have done a lot of damage to Christ and what he taught also. Which do you think it might be?
I'm still studying the teachings of Jesus and am just getting around to the end times - He gave accounts of two end times. One for Isreal/Jerusalem of His day then, another of the end time. Those who recorded some that is in our NT didn't grasp the long time span between and got some of the account out of order, and recently there looks to be a good reconciliation of the accounts in Matthew, Mark and Luke. I'll try to find the link so you can check it out. Just got my AENT back from the binder yesterday and I plan to go through the text in the Aramaic to English translation on my web site. There are things in the Aramaic that were lost in the translation to Greek - such as 'And winters will be severe.'
The more I've studied, the more I believe it was Paul, but that the fruits of the lies he told in the name of Christ have not found their full fruits yet, but I do believe the Word will be fulfilled to the letter, so I have to look for the future pair - false prophet and one who claims to be Christ or in place of Christ.
Why worry too much about what we are not told clearly, when all need to do what He said we are to be doing? If we are not busy with what we have been told to be doing - what good is it to be looking, but not doing?;-) Seems foolish to me, but related is that Revelation said the Bride will make herself ready. That gives me hope for what is ahead.
