Reposting-He Said, He Said 5

Mohammed says:

“Thus God leads astray whom He pleases, and guides him He pleases:” Chpt of the Covered v11

Jesus says:

“Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” Matthew 6:13 and Luke 11:4

Here we can see two different attitudes toward  God and His role is guiding people. From Mohammed, you get resignation. God guides or misguides and people are utterly powerless.

From Jesus, you get encouragement. In this model prayer, Jesus demonstrates that his followers should ask for God’s guidance (and deliverance) with the expectation of receiving it.

One teacher is resigned. The other is expectant.
