Muslim Group Offends Christians With Jesus Advertisements Dubbed "A Prophet of Islam"

“Jesus: A prophet of Islam” states the provocative tagline in a “public awareness” advertising campaign launched by a Muslim group in Australia’s largest city.

The group, calling itself Mypeace, says its aim is to inform, not offend – but offend it has, with one Catholic bishop calling the assertion about Jesus “a direct assault on Christian beliefs.”

Roadside billboards in the metropolitan Sydney area carry one of four simple slogans: “Jesus: A Prophet of Islam,” “Holy Qur’an: The Final Testament,” “Muhammad: Mercy to Mankind” and “Islam: Got Questions? Get Answers.”

Each banner invites people to get in touch by phone or online, for literature and a free copy of the Qur’an. Mypeace says the ads will stay up for four weeks, and later this year will be run on scores of public buses in the city.

One of the billboards featuring the Jesus slogan was vandalized a day after it was erected.

Mypeace says its aim is to “address the many misconceptions on Islam, to educate fellow Australians on Islam, invite them to ask any questions that they may have.”

Islamic awareness campaigns are not new, but the slogan referring to Jesus is causing a stir.  Muslims and interfaith advocates sometimes invoke Jesus to assert some sort of commonality with Christians, implying that Muslims, too, “believe in Jesus.”

But Muslims, and the Qur’an, deny the central Christian beliefs regarding Jesus – his divinity, crucifixion and resurrection.

Elsewhere on its Web site, Mypeace states that “the Qur’an … repeatedly reminds that Jesus was a human prophet sent by God, not part of God Himself.”

“In Australia with its Christian heritage a billboard carrying the statement ‘Jesus A prophet of Islam’ is provocative and offensive to Christians,” Julian Porteous, auxiliary bishop at the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, responded in an article.

“Central to Christianity is the belief that Jesus Christ is more than a prophet,” he said. “He is the Son of God. He is acclaimed Lord and Savior of humanity. This statement is a direct assault on Christian beliefs.”

Porteous said religions should not “set out to antagonize those with differing beliefs.”

“Dialogue between the religions can only take place when it is founded in mutual respect. It is not fostered by provocative statements.”

Porteous urged Mypeace to withdraw the ads.

Islamic doctrine holds that the 7th century Arabian Mohammed was the last in a long line of prophets of Islam stretching back to Adam, and including Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, Jonah, John the Baptist – and Jesus. (The “Got Questions?” ad in Sydney also describes Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed as “prophets of Islam”.)

Mypeace did not respond to queries.

If such is said about mohamed you would have heard about slaughters in so many places by now, all in the name of islam

very True Eze...
Dont hate @ Eze and Drew: Dont say things you dont know... There is still diff. btw Islam and Hausa.. GOT QUESTIONS
Pls let's just laugh at this ignorant fools and continue with our peaceful life which Jesus Himself ordered us to live. Blood has finished in their blood bank hence they want to start trouble so they can go on another slaughtering spree.
@Brother Prince Zid, you are the one bringing Hausa into this discussion now. This thing happened in Australia, not in Nigeria. But we all know that if it was something said against mohamed, be it in far away antarctica moslems anywhere in the world would start slaughtering people. What we fail to understand in this our country is that the Hausa people have been blinded by their leaders, both religious and otherwise, with religion. A religion that does not condone questioning what you are being taught to me is nothing more than slavery and bondage. If my pastor, priest or even bishop comes to church and tells me that some moslems in Australia are blaspheming against Jesus and that I should kill every moslem I see as my religious duty, I would be the first to open The Bible and ask him questions why I should terminate a life GOD created and I did not have a hand in creating. Let moslems, especially our northern brothers ask questions when they are told to go and do such nefarious things against other human beings, and against GOD, as those people are also GOD's creations.
Hello gent, am sure we all know the truth about the 3-major religion in the world. Please, dont instigate one group against another by your comments in this forum except this platform is for ''fishing'' some people insult our intelligent on this forum talking without any fact or substance in their comments,Stop  this religious, tribal sentimental comments, am sure this is not a beerparlour chat room.

what the peace was saying was nothing but a pure truth. and let the wise ones beleive this.

 

 

 

Truth as stated by your religion but to me it doesn't matter cause i've always opinionated that islaam is like anglican or any Christian denomination with some exceptional doctrines (based on reading The Quran and following the preceeding history of Christianity around the time of Mohammed ,PBH) without any bias or politics that emanated later after the death of the Prophet. 

However I see in the future no christian throwing stones, burning mosques, killing alfas , disturbing the peace and ultimately Killing moslems and fellow human beings because of this. Besides  I see no provocation even when Worse things are said or posted . Shallom

God is wonderful.....
