Elijah Hamilton UTT Chapter 3 Discussion Questions because of our fallen nature but we may be able to resist these temptations because of the Holy Spirit. 14. Both Islam and Christianity believe that Jesus was a prophet, performed miracles, and was born of a virgin. In regard to God, Muslims believe that God is the Creator, eternal, and self-existent. 15. Islam teaches that God is the creator, put the universe in order, is sovereign over humanity, all-powerful. It rejects the idea of the trinity and deny the God-hood of Jesus. 16. Islam teaches that God gave his will through 25 prophets. Muslims believe the Quran is the only uncorrupted and authoritative scripture without error. (UTT p.60) 17. Islam teaches that Jesus was born of a virgin, performed miracles, and his good teaching, however, they deny his divinity, death on a cross, and resurrection to atone for sin. (UTT p.60) 18. Islam teaches that salvation is uncertain, unless one dies in jihad. Muslims believe that their good must outweigh their bad if they are to receive rewards in their afterlife. This is scary because they have no way of knowing before they die. 19. Islam does not teach about the Fall of humanity into sin. Thus the Quran does not hold any teachings about a final judgement of a sinful humanity because the Quran does not teach that sin is an issue. 20. Islam and Christianity both use the kalam-cosmological argument to explain the existence of God.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
