This "Test" was designed by former Christian and now Muslim chaplain, Yusuf Estes from Texas.
He asks us to take the test and find out once and for all ---
Christians Claim - Jesus is "Son of God"
Muslims Say - Jesus is a "Prophet of God"
But the Real Question is -
"Who Really Follows Jesus?"
Test Your Knowledge of Jesus' Teachings & Consider these 14 Interesting Questions:
An Introduction to the Message of the Prophets of The "Lost"and "Last" Testaments
1). Did Jesus teach eternal life was conditioned on obeying the commandments?Yes ___
And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tempted him, saying,"Master what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the Law? How do you read?" And he answered saying, "Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him. You have answered right; do this, and you shall live." Luke10: 25-28
God has only created us to worship Him (without partners).
Read Last Testament (Quran) Chapter 51, verse 56; chapter 4, verse 48;chapter 112, all verses
2). Did Jesus teach his followers to serve no other god, except Almighty God, and worship Him without any partners?
And Jesus answered him, the first of all the commandments is,
"Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord, and you shall worship Him with all your strength and all your might and all your soul and all your heart." Mark 12:29
He also replied to the devil who was trying to tempt him:
"Get thee behind me, Satan; for it is written, Thou shall worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shall you serve." Matthew 4:10
Read from the Last Testament (Quran) 4:48
God tells us that He never forgives anyone making partners in worship with Him, but anything less than this, He forgives whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Him in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin.
3). Did Jesus order us to obey all the commandments?Yes ___
According to the New Testament in Matthew, he did.
"Think not that I came to destroy the Law and the Prophets. I came not to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily, I say unto you that until Heaven and earth pass away not a jot or one tittle shall no wise pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled." Matthew 5:17-18
"And behold one came and said to him, Good teacher, what good things shall I do that I may have eternal life? So he said, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but One, this God. But if you want to enter into eternal life, keep the commandments." Matthew 19:16-17
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
While ordering us to obey the "Law" it becomes obvious that he ordered his followers to obey the commandments of Almighty God.
4.) Did Jesus forbid bowing down to statues?Yes ___
By insisting on following the "Law" (Old Testament), Jesus did in fact endorse the message that Moses had brought down to the children of Israel from Almighty God;

5.) Did Jesus forbid anyone to worship him?Yes ___
"But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:19
