SERMON TOPIC: Islam and Christianity (Part 1) - Status of women
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 9 March 2014
Topic Groups: FALSE RELIGION, ISLAM, WOMEN
Sermon synopsis: At face value, Islam appears to share common roots with both Judaism and Christianity. But the teachings of the Quran are sharply contrasted to the Bible when it comes to the status and treatment of women.
Men are superior to women. (Sura 2:228)
Your wives are like a field. Plow them as often and anyway you wish. (Sura 2:223)
Husband, discipline your rebellious wives, beat them and deny them sex (Sura 4:34)
In one hadith Muhammad advises husbands to, “Hang up your whip where your wife can see it.”
The Bible says:
Eph 5:25-29 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...
Prov 18:22 He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the LORD.
1 Tim 5:1-2 ... Treat... older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
