“Mohammed May Conquer by the Sword!”

“Mohammed may conquer by the sword–but Christ conquers by the sword which comes out of His mouth, that is, the Word of the Lord! His empire is one of love–not of force and oppression. He subdues men, but He does it by His own gentleness and kindness, never by breaking them in pieces and destroying them upon a gory battlefield.”

“The religion of Jesus is the most peaceful, mild and benevolent religion which was ever promulgated. When we compare it with any set of dogmas invented by men, there is not one of them that can stand the least comparison with it for gentleness, mildness and love.”

“As for the religion of Mohamed, it is the religion of the vulture–but the religion of Jesus is that of the dove–all is mercy, all is mild. It is, like its Founder–an embodiment of pure benevolence, grace and truth.” Matthew 11:29 says, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me–for I am gentle and humble in heart.”
