伊斯蘭和基督教-相同還是不同?
Islam and Christianity – Same or different?

我們不同意某些基督徒和穆斯林(包括那些簽署了公開「共同語」信件的),不加保留地將伊斯蘭和基督教表達為很接近和來自同一位神(真主)的立場。
We do not agree with the position expressed by some Christians and Muslims (including those who signed the open “Common Word” letter) that Islam and Christianity are very close and come from the same God, without qualification.
我們清楚了解伊斯蘭的核心教義和經典中非常反基督教的信仰,伊斯蘭自從十四個世紀前崛起開始,一直在牢籠其數以億計的追隨者的靈魂,以致他們見不到真光,並從教會擄掠無數靈魂,因此我們認為上述立場相當不適當和誤導,因為這立場-似乎刻意地-模糊了基督教和伊斯蘭的基本信仰的非常關鍵的差異,將伊斯蘭非常美化和其表達為十分接近基督教,而實情卻遠非如此。
Bearing in mind the very anti-Christian beliefs inherent in the core teachings and scriptures of Islam, which has been binding its billions of followers from seeing the true Light and snatching numerous souls from the Church ever since its ascent 14 centuries ago, we consider such position to be quite inappropriate and misleading, as it blurs, seemingly purposefully, very crucial differences between the basic beliefs of Christianity and Islam, and presents Islam in very rosy light as far closer to Christianity than is actually the case.


在採取公開立場時,基督徒必須以真愛的精神對待神和他人,包括希望:
In the taking of publicized positions, Christians must act in a spirit of genuine love towards God and other people, including a desire:

看到神在耶穌基督裡的榮耀得在信徒和非信徒之中彰顯
- to see God in Jesus Christ glorified among believers and unbelievers

幫助信徒從半真理和謬誤中辨別出真理來,而不是它們混淆了
- to help believers discern the Truth from half-truths and falsehood rather than confuse them

讓非信徒見到真光而離開通往永恆詛咒的路,引領他們走向通往永生的唯一道路。
- to show unbelievers the true Light so that they may turn away from a path leading to eternal damnation to the only Way to everlasting life.


我們知道,在處理基督徒和穆斯林是否敬拜同一位神(真主)的問題上,有各種看似都可以的觀點。
We are aware there are various plausible perspectives in dealing with the issue of whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
我們注意到:
We note that:

穆罕默德認為他在敬拜-而他尋求敬拜-同樣也是基督徒的真主(神)。
- Muhammad thought he worshiped, and he sought to worship, the same God as Christians.

古蘭經聲稱來自同樣也是基督徒的真主(神)。
- The Quran claimed to come from the same God as Christians.

伊斯蘭聲稱來自同樣也是基督徒的真主(神)。
- Islam claims to be from the same God as Christians.

許多穆斯林認為他們在敬拜-而他們尋求敬拜-同樣也是基督徒的真主(神)。
- Many Muslims think they worship, and they seek to worship, the same God as Christians.


然而,穆斯林被撒謊或誤導而信錯了。
However, Muslims have been lied at, or misled, into believing something wrong.
我們相信:
We believe that:

穆罕默德不知道/沒有找到通往真主的真道。
- Muhammad did not know/find the true way to the true God.

古蘭經不是通往真主的真道。
- The Quran is not the true way to the true God.

伊斯蘭不是通往真主的真道。
- Islam is not the true way to the true God.

穆斯林不知道/沒有找到通往真主的真道。
- Muslims do not know/find the true way to the true God.

只有耶穌是真道,可以引領人認識真神。
- Only Jesus is the true way that can lead people to know the true God.


就着伊斯蘭,我們明確和毫不含糊地表達我們的立場:
In relation to Islam, we would express our position clearly and unambiguously that:

古蘭經不是真主啟示的話語。聖經是真神默示的話語。
- The Quran is not the inspired word of the true God. The Bible is the inspired word of the true God.

穆罕默德不是真主的真先知。
- Muhammad is not a true prophet of the true God.

伊斯蘭不是可以引導其信徒和追隨者通往天園、或與真主建立關係、或得到拯救、或罪得赦免的真道。基督教-就是相信和聖經中所描述的真實的、歷史的耶穌基督建立關係-是引導其信徒和追隨者通往天堂、與真神建立關係、得到拯救、罪得赦免的真道。
- Islam is not the true way that may lead its believers and followers to heaven or to a relationship with the true God, or to salvation, or to forgiveness of sins. Christianity, that is a belief in and relation with the true, historical Jesus Christ as described in the Bible, is the way that leads its believers and followers to heaven and a relationship with the true God, and to salvation, and to forgiveness of sins.


奉我們的主耶穌基督的名,祂死在十字架上以救贖我們脫離我們的罪,使我們可以透過祂的復活永遠祂活在一起
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord who died on the cross to redeem us from our sins so that we may live eternally with Him through His resurrection
