Islam in the Bible

     Is Mohammed truly the last Prophet — the fulfilment of Moses' prediction of a coming great "Prophet…like unto me" (Deuteronomy 18:15)?   Or is Mohammed perhaps the greatest of a long line of false-prophets predicted in Deuteronomy 13:1-5 — so that his testimony should be rejected?  What is Islam?   How does Church History view it?   And above all, what does the Bible say?

     Islam is a potent mixture of a little truth and a lot of error.   The truthful parts are not original, but were gleaned from a few passages in the Older Testament and from even fewer portions in the Newer Testament of the infallible Word of God.   The erroneous parts are an odd conglomeration of: certain sections from the Apocrypha which arose in the Intertestamental Period; Post-Christian sectarian writings in the Pseudepigrapha; Arabian Paganism; and the A.D. 570-632 Mohammed's own views written down by his favourite wife Khadiya.
