Idols in the Qur’an and the Bible – Sura 68 – Part 3

Kudos to the writer of this blog. I never realized that Mohammed never performed any miracle. It puts me in mind of the incident where Jesus is confronted for performing a miracle. He was accused of working in concert with Satan to have the ability to perform the miracle. This is when Jesus, Mark 3:25, “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” A demon isn’t going to undermine another demon or Satan. So this may be my backwards logic, but Jesus doing a miracle and being accused of being demonic, while Mohammed never doing a miracle????

which god saves -

idols Is a lack of miracles an indication of a false god or an idol?

[68:41] Do they have idols? Let their idols help them, if they are truthful.

1Ki 18:24 Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the LORD. The god who answers by fire—he is God.”

Both the Qur’an and the Bible warn about false gods and idols.  However – while the Bible places a heavy emphasis on miracles, the Qur’an does not.  Although – Muslims do consider the Qur’an itself to be a miracle.

We’ll take a look at this, based on another section of Sura 68, compared with 1 Kings from the Old Testament and The Gospel of Mark from the New Testament.
