Can A Person Belong To Two Religions?“I am both Muslim and Christian”!


Reader, good Thursday morning to everyone, I 'm praying everyone reading this post have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I just don't believe one could be a Christian and a Muslim at the same time. You're either with or against one of the faith. You can't embrace both at the same time. Now one could be a Christian and respect a Muslim’s faith without embracing it. One could be a Muslim and respect a Christian’s faith without embracing it. But the theological terms of the two faith are contradictory.




There's no way you can embrace Jesus and Muhammad at the same time, it ain't happening. I cannot receive Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten son and the only Lord and Savior AND heap the highest honors, then turn around and heap the same praises on Muhammad.  If I accept the truth of Jesus being the only way to God and the only name under heaven by which one can be saved from sin, then I cannot ascribe the same saving powers to Muhammad.


Anyhow, the article below is old but interesting just the same.

Rev. Ann Holmes Redding, 55, graduated from Brown University, earned master's degrees from two seminaries, and received her Ph.D. in New Testament from Union Theological Seminary in New York City, NY. She felt called to the priesthood; in 1984, she was ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church, USA. She will teach the New Testament as a visiting assistant professor at Seattle University in the fall of 2007. She has a life goal to create an institute to study the three largest monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

In 2005-Fall, a Muslim leader gave a talk at St. Mark's Cathedral where Redding worked. She was moved by his prayer. During 2006-Spring, another Muslim leader taught a chanted prayer to God at a cathedral's inter-faith class. She began reciting the prayer daily. She began to study Islam intensely. in 2006-March, she became a Muslim by reciting the shahada -- "There is no god but God (Allah), and Muhammad is his prophet."

She says that:
"Coming to Islam was like coming into a family with whom I'd been estranged. We have not only the same God, but the same ancestor with Abraham."

  1. NO YOU EITHER SERVE OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR. HE IS THE FIRST AND THE LAST.HE IS ALPHA AND OMEGA. AND WE WORSHIP HIM AND HIM ONLY.NO ONE COMPARES TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. HE'S WORTY TO BE PRAISED. SHE HAS A REPOBATED MIND. HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS BUT DENING THE POWER THEREOF. NO MY SISTER YOU CAN'T BE A MUSLIM AND A CHRISTIAN AT THE SAME TIME.WHAT HAVE LIGHT WITH DARKNESS. IF SHE WAS TRULY SAVED AND SANTIFIED AND DELIVERED AND SET FREE FROM SIN AND SHAMED.THEN SHE WOULDN'T BE CONFUSED. BUT THAT JUST SHOWS YOU HOW FOLKS THAT GO TO THESE SEMINARIES GET ALL CAUGHT UP AND CONFUSED WITH DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF RELIGION AND DON'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT. REAL SALVATION AND DELIVERANCE AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS THAT ARE FALSE TEACHING. THAT GET FOLKS CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT TO BELIEVE AND WHAT NOT TO BELIEVE.

  2. Miss Ann,

    Christians need to understand the biblical definition of religion:

    "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27)

    Those who believe in Jesus Christ LIVE according to the precepts of God. The straight and narrow.

    Unfortunately no one is teaching truth AT ALL. We have women teaching and messing up God's WORD (e.g. Redding and Bynum) and they are doing this against God's WORD (1 Timothy 2:12). Should we be surprised by the outcome?

    1. Confirming the error of Redding's ways:

      "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." (Exodus 20:3)

      "And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth." (Exodus 23:13)

  3. Of course a person can be a Christian and a Muslim. All one have to do is know and believe the tenants of both religions. One can believe the teachings of Jesus Christ as God in the flesh, and in Him as the Great prophet as taught by Islam. When it comes to worship, one can worship the LORD on Sunday and pray to Him, and offer prayers to the East towards Mecca. When it comes to living, one can believe in the Holy Spirit as well as living to balance the scales to escape the final judgment of Allah. They both have the same principles, just go about it in a way so minute, lots of folks make PETTY issues out of. No problem being a Muslim and a Christian.

    1. Anonymous stop lying you cannot be a Christian and Muslim at the same time. "There are tenets of the faiths that are very, very different. The most basic would be: What do you do with Jesus? I don't think it's possible [to be both, just like] ... you can't be a Republican and a Democrat."

    2. One believe Jesus is God. The other believes Jesus is a prophet. I believe He's both. What's the problem? Like I said I worship on the LORD's Day and pray regularly to ALLAH. I look at the commonality of each and pattern my life as lead by the Spirit.

  4. Nope! And why would a person want to?!

  5. Oh. This a easy one here....Matt 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. I bet that's not in the Koran.
