Jesus, Mohammed — Same Thing

The dhimmitude of Swedish Christians — who are in any case not very numerous — seems to be getting worse. Now they can hasten their conversion to Islam by accepting Mohammed as their very own Christian prophet, according to a leading theologian.

Swedish Church leader: Christians can have Mohammed as prophet

DIVERSITY. Can Islam’s foremost prophet, Mohammed, also be a prophet for Christians? Yes, believes Jakob Wirén, who is one of the Swedish Church’s foremost theologians.

That is in a newly-published book entitled, “To make a place for the other?”, in which Wirén devotes a chapter to Mohammed and the role he can have for Christian people. Wirén is a theologian and is on the archbishop’s staff in the Swedish Church.

Wirén claims that Christians may well also consider Mohammed as a prophet for Christians, if not only because he was a “defender of monotheism.”

“As for the concept of prophet, it is quite open. There are prophets and prophesies even after Jesus’ resurrection, not the least of which in the New Testament,” he tells the Christian newspaper, Dagen.

Wirén believes that Christians can think of Mohammed as a Christian prophet out of “respect” for Muslims. In a follow-up debate article, he regrets that so many Christians reject Mohammed and that “the public conversation on Islam is often poisoned by extremism and hate.”

However, claiming that Mohammed can be considered as a Christian prophet meets with opposition from, among others, Dagen’s lead writer, Frederik Wenell. “The idea that Mohammed can also be a prophet in Christian tradition goes both against Christian and against Muslim tradition,” he writes among other things.

  1. What about other stand-ins for Christ? Porky pig, Superman, Starman, Zarathustra, or Zeus? Aren’t they as Christian as Mohammed? Sweden is a horror show.

    • You forgot the Flying Spaghetti Monster :-))
      Would make as much sense as just about anything else in Sweden these days…

      • Charles Manson was a crazed idiot who managed his mentality ill freak followers to kill 8 people,
        The communist MSM and communist Hollyweird pushed the Manson cult in everyone’s faces to hide the grisly murders of over 1000 whites up and down California in a 5 year span called the zebra murders committed by the black muslims.

  2. Muslims worked wonders for western Christians. Now remove all armed resistance or negativity towards CCP. That could be a perfect storm that takes care of Christianity Muslims and Wuhan? No wait……It’s only Sweden by degrees. Biden Bozo Merkel and Macron are trying desperately to catch up. Miss leading and lies.

  3. According to Genesis 3 Adam too is a god.

    The idea of ‘monotheism’ is a can of worms; the first of the ten commandments reads literally, thou shalt not throw other gods in My face.

    The worst of those ‘gods’ is myself, I define my own pigsty, and wallow in it, however, at any time I can leave the pigsty of my own making and follow the way back to the Father; His servants will meet me from afar.

    This does not happen at all in Islam. But unfortunately it also does not happen in many Christian and Jewish environments either.

  4. This Morons have been taking “Turn the other cheek” to heights that is Borderline Insanity.
    Haven’t they noticed by now that turning the other cheek for Islam is an Invitation to get beaten to a pulp?
    I guess NOT, but what can you expect from people that live their whole Life in an ideological “Ivory Tower” and the utter denial of Reality?

  5. We used to burn heretics like this at the stake for such blasphemy. We now celebrate these useful idiots for being so diversity oriented. Weakness breeds contempt which invites atrocities. Useful idiots like this guy are going to find life brutally short soon.

  6. So if the one god of a “defender of monotheism” is Satan, then Christians should adopt Satan’s defender as a prophet? The entire West appears to be no longer capable of rational thought.

  7. We shouldn’t be surprised when lesser theologians come out with this bilge.

    Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran in 1999. Popes before him oversaw the transformation of Roman Catholicism into a sect of Islam.

    Copleston, a priest, was one of the most distinguished historians of philosophy in the twentieth century wrote a book in the 1990s entitled “Jesus or Mohammed”. You will find virtually nothing in that book which portrays Mohammed as anything other than Christ-like.

    We just have to accept that despite all the financial, philosophical, historical reasons why Christianity should have resisted Islamisation of the West, it didn’t. The capitulation began in the 1960s and it has only gathered pace. In the West, Christianity as an organised religion is gone. Sadly many of the sheep do not realise it.

    • Oh no, Christianity is indeed alive in the West. Perhaps just not where you live. I read a bit older scribe: The Life and Religion of Mohammed, the Prophet of Arabia. Written by a fellow named J.L. Menezes. First published in 1912 or so. Actually, Christianity is even alive and making some headway in places like Bangladesh.
      Where I live Christianity is very much alive but as you note, my cousins in Sweden live in a place that is, as far as religion is concerned, circling the drain. Next they’ll find a prophet in Guruda.
