Print Page Christian Fundamentalism = Muslim Fundamentalist?

"Muslim fundamentalism, Christian fundamentalism, Jewish fundamentalism, secular fundamentalism - they're all motivated by fear. Fear of each other." (Philadelphia Inquirer, The purpose-driven pastor, Paul Nussbaum, Jan. 08, 2006)

That is a quote from Rick Warren. He, like many other liberal pastors and secular media, often group fundamental Christians and Muslims together. As will be shown there is no comparison between the two other than they both take their faith serious. I know of no fundamental Christian motivated by fear. Instead we are motivated by the Bible. The same probably goes for Muslim fundamentalists. They are not motivated by fear but by the words of the Koran.

We shouldn't be surprised when Muslims kill the "pagans". It is something they are commanded to do.
Surah 9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Surah 2:190-193 Fight in the cause of God, those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out: For tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; But fight them not at the sacred Mosque unless they first fight you there; But if they fight you, Slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression."
Muslims are told not to be allies with Jews and Christians.
Surah 5:51 O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.
In contrast the Christian Fundamentalist looks to verses such as these:
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Luke 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
So Christian Fundamentalists love their enemies and because they love their enemies they share the gospel with them in hopes to see them saved from the path to the lake of fire.

It is common to see the Muslims mistreat women. The have good reason for this, because they take the Koran seriously.
Surah 4:34 Men are overseers over women, by reason of that wherewith Allah hath made one of them excel over another, and by reason of that which they expend of their substance. Wherefore righteous women are obedient, and are watchers in husbands absence by the aid and protection of Allah. And those wives whose refractoriness ye fear, exhort them, and avoid them in beds, and beat them; but if they obey you, seek not a way against them; verily Allah is ever Lofty, Grand.
 The Bible does teach different roles for women and men but instead of beating our wives we are to love them as Christ loved the church.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

As shown there is a stark contrast between Muslim and Christian fundamentalism. Those that say the 2 are the same are either ignorant or are lying.
