Corruption of the Scriptures? Part I – Islam Does Confirm the Bible As Scripture from God

All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2 Timothy 3:16

The Qur’ān claims it CONFIRMS the Torah and Injeel (the Gospel) which Muslims reject, in the Hindu chapter Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow).

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:89

If Muhammadans want to claim the Bible is corrupted then why does their Qur’ān confirm it? Their prophet took the Torah and placed it on a cushion saying he believes in the Torah and in the one who revealed the Torah?1 Are Muslims saying Muhammad believed in a corrupted book?

Dawahgandist propagate lies attempting to “revert” non-Muslims, one of these lies is the so-called claims of “the corruption of the Bible”, when their own book the Qur’ān affirms it. Because they find themselves in a catch 22 the only option they have is to make the outlandish claim that the Bible was corrupted. In this article, we’ll provide evidence in response to quranandBibleblog (Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?) as to how illogical this argument is.

“If the Scriptures of the Christians and Jews were good, there would be no need for Islam or the Qur’an.”

Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?

The quote from our friend stewjo004 is what we’ve been saying all along, Islam is a copy-paste religion as their prophet plagiarized stories from the Bible and other texts. Stewjo004 in his ignorance makes a wonderful statement unknowingly saying:

“The argument presented by missionaries is that the Scripture can’t change because the Qur’an says that God’s words can’t change. To begin, this is an illogical argument because one can take any religious text and add or delete a verse from it. There’s no magical force field around the text itself.”

Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?

Of course, this was directly in regards to the Bible he claims was “corrupted”, his claim is “ANY religious text and add or delete a verse from it”, does the word any also include the Qur’ān Abdool? Let’s find out if this also applies to their book?

“The proper context of these verses has nothing to do with God’s Scriptures. They’re referring to God’s Commands which He throughout the Qur’an calls His Word because He says “Be” and then it happens.

Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?

When Allah said “Be” was that not part of Allah’s scriptures, and how come Allah couldn’t make Muhammad read in Surah Al-‘Alaq if all he has to say is “Be”?

They claim the word spoken of in the following verses Surah Al-Anaam, 6:73; Surah Yunus, 10:96-97; Surah Ghafir, 40:6; Surah Al-Isra, 17:16; Surah Ya-Sin, 36:7; Surah Yunus, 10:79-82.

How convenient he would choose verses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand. If he wants to be honest he would provide the following verses.

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:87

Pickthall: “And verily We gave unto Moses the Scripture …”.

Surah An-Nisa 4:163

Pickthall: “… and as We imparted unto David the Psalms;” ( وَءَاتَيْنَا دَاوُۥدَ زَبُورًۭا )

Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:3

Pickthall: He hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture … confirming that which was (revealed) before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel. (وَأَنزَلَ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةَ وَٱلْإِنجِيلَ)

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:46

Pickthall: “… confirming that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the Gospelconfirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah … ”.

The translation doesn’t do it much justice the Arabic actually says ( مَرْيَمَ مُصَدِّقًۭا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ مِنَ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةِ ۖ ) “confirming what was between his hands” ( وَءَاتَيْنَـٰهُ ٱلْإِنجِيلَ فِيهِ هُدًۭى وَنُورٌۭ وَمُصَدِّقًۭا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ ) “and we gave him the Injeel in it was guidance and light and confirming what was between his hands”. The Bible here is the same Bible that existed before Muhammad and what we have currently have.

Allah says the Torah, Psalms, and Gospel were all given by him. Yet Muslims claim the Bible has been corrupted. If so, it would seem they don’t believe Allah since the Qur’ān says the Word of Allah cannot be changed.

Surah Al-An’am 6:34

Yusuf Ali: “… there is NONE THAT CAN ALTER THE WORDS (and decrees) OF ALLAH. …”.

Notice the deceptive translation of the word (decrees) in brackets isn’t part of the text, Muslims are trying to fix the problem in their Qur’ān by inserting those words. The text actually says ( وَلَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ ) “none can change the words of Allah”.

Also, why would Muslims need an “Abridged Explanation of the Qur’ān?” I thought Allah said “the manifest Book (this Qur’ān) that makes things clear” in Surah Ad-Dukhan 44:2, Allah must be wrong then since Qur’ān is not clear and needs explanation.

Surah Al-An’am 6:115

Yusuf Ali: “… NONE CAN CHANGE HIS WORDS: …” (Surah 6:115). ( لَّا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَـٰتِهِۦ ۚ )

Surah Yunus 10:64

Yusuf Ali: “… NO CHANGE CAN THERE BE IN THE WORDS OF ALLAH. …” (Surah 10:64). ( لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِكَلِمَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ )

When Muhammad (570-632) was alive, he claimed to receive the revelation of the Qur’ān from Allah. This means that at that time the Bible, which was in existence, could not have been corrupted because the Qur’ān states that Allah’s word cannot be corrupted.

The question we have for stewjo004 is When and where was the Bible corrupted since the Qur’ān says that the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel are from Allah and Allah’s words cannot be changed, are you saying the Qur’ān is false because it says the Bible is preserved but you’re saying otherwise?

The Muslims know if the Bible is preserved that makes Islam false and they need to leave Islam since the Qur’ān contradicts the Bible, if the Qur’ān is wrong and the Bible is not preserved then Islam is false because Allah can’t preserve his word and its a false religion. Which is it?

And if the verses are referring to Allah’s decrees not being changed then since Allah sent the Torah, Psalms and Gospel that would mean they cannot be changed as well because they are Allah’s “decrees”.

The Corruption of the Qur’ān

I will examine the opinions of some of the influential usulıs concerning the tawatur of the Qur’anic Readings and point out the problematic issues they were trying to resolve.2

Transmission of the Variant Readings of the Qur’an (Texts and Studies on the Qurʾān)

Muslims are in a serious quagmire when Christians challenge the authenticity of the Qur’ān, we’re told the Qur’ān was revealed in 7 ahurfs. Supposedly 7 different “dialects”, this is obviously proof Allah failed in giving Qur’ān if this book is “easy to understand” Surah Al-Qamar [54:17, 54:22, 54:32, 54:40]. If Allah was god he would be able to give one Qur’ān and all in Arabia would understand. But Abdools say it’s different dialects.

Chapter: The clarification that the Qur’an was revealed in seven ahruf (modes of recitation), and clarifying its meaning Sahih Muslim 819a

Muhammad asked Allah to give seven different “styles” which means Allah doesn’t know what he’s doing because Muhammad is correcting Allah saying one is not enough we need more than one “style”. If god gives something it should be perfect the first time, but 1 style was not enough according to Islamic sources.3

Chapter: The Qur’an was revealed to be recited in seven different ways Sahih al-Bukhari 4991

Poor Jibril had to accommodate Muhammad’s command of reciting Qur’ān in seven different ways because the Muslims wouldn’t understand it because Allah’s word is not easy to understand completely contradicting Surah Al-Qamar. Allah just cannot get it right!

The fact that Muslims were reciting the Qur’ān and others were accusing them of reciting Qur’ān incorrectly proves this is not a simple matter of dialects. The standard Islamic narrative is the Qur’ān was revealed in seven different ways and this caused confusion among the believers as they thought the seven ahruf were the same as the seven qira’at because they were the same in number (seven).4

Ibn Mujāhid then wanted to minimalise and established the textual variants to form a manageable corpus. He then canonized the different readings through force and projected the thought that a consensus was in place which comprised of no one being allowed to recite or teach obsolete readings of the Sahaba. These differences contradicted the Uthmanic codices and anyone who taught or recited these different readings was severely punished.5

The Illiterate Prophet?

Another claim is that Muhammad was “illiterate” ( ٱلنَّبِىِّ ٱلْأُمِّىِّ ) was this the case? Our friends quoted Surah Al-A’raf 7:158 to substantiate this claim. According to Muhammad, he was fully capable of writing, in Bukhari 4432 the companions were at his death bed and Muhammad was going to write for them. As the companions gave Muhammad material to write but he was unable to because the fighting prevented Muhammad.

Chapter: The sickness of the Prophet (saws) and his death Sahih al-Bukhari 4432

Where do Muslims get the notion that Muhammad was unable to read and write? The verse in the Qur’ān says he was “unlettered” which means someone who is unlearned in the scriptures. The Islamic scholar al-Jalalayn puts it this way “the uninstructed Prophet”6

But the cousin of Muhammad Ibn ‘Abbas says “the Prophet who can neither read nor write”,7 this is a fabrication as Muhammad said he would write something for them. They’re desperate to find their prophet in the Torah, sadly for them, Isaiah 29:12 is not the Torah. Isaiah is found in the Nevi’im as the Torah is the 5 books of Moses.

“Who follow the Messenger, the illiterate prophet they find described in the Torah that is with them, and in the Gospel…”

Surah Al-Araf 7:158

Here’s the verse in Isaiah our friends are referring to which actually goes against them as those who couldn’t read the scripture were under Yahweh’s judgement:

Isaiah 29:12

The footnote says “Lit. does not know books”,8 if Muhammad never read any book this would place him outside of this verse. In Surah al-‘Ankaboot 29:48 Allah says Muhammad NEVER read any book BEFORE Qur’ān.

Surah al-‘Ankaboot 29:48

Bear in mind when Muhammad received the first revelation from Allah, Jibril said Iqra ( اقْرَأْ ) in Surah Al-‘Alaq (clot).9 This is a silly statement shouldn’t Jibril have rather said “recite” instead of “read” being that there was no book for Muhammad to read from? Jibril didn’t have a physical book for Muhammad to read from!

Additionally, if Allah is almighty as Muslims claim why did it take him multiple tries to get Muhammad to recite? Don’t Muhammadans say Allah says “Be” and it is, then how come Allah didn’t say “Be” and it was? It shows Allah is not almighty at all.

What is Revelation?

The mutah boy tried to define what it means to receive revelation:

To begin, let’s define what is revelation and Scripture. There are multiple versions of revelation a prophet can receive: (1) A Scripture where God transmits His words verbatim (either through direct speech or through an intermediary such as an angel) (2) An angel relaying a message from God but not necessarily a Scripture or God’s direct speech (ex. “Your Lord has ordered you to go here…” (3) Dreams (4) A Prophet’s inspired action or speech regarding a religious matter. (5) A Prophet’s rulings (6) Prophecies

Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?

Revelation (Ἀποκάλυψις) is directly given from God to an individual, all of the men of God such as Moses received direct revelation from Yahweh on Mt. Sinai. The first prophet Samuel received direct revelation from the LORD.

1 Samuel 3:4

Revelation only comes directly from God to an individual and that’s the definition of a prophet. Where the LORD speaks to that individual in order for Him to be made known. It’s not delivered from an angel as Muhammad claimed Jibril brought the words of Allah to him.

In the book of Numbers, chapter 12 Miriam and Aaron complained against Moses because he married an Ethiopian woman who is from the lineage of Cush. This could have been the first instance of racism as Moses’ siblings both being Israelites were looking down on the woman. We can’t forget that in the time of Noah we’re told he had 3 sons, it was through them we have the diverse people of the world.

Aaron and Miriam were also jealous of Moses and said “Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also?”, then it says “the LORD heard”.10 The LORD called them to the door of the tabernacle and Miriam was punished with leprosy because of her hatred towards the Cushite woman.

Numbers 12:1-8

According to Islam Aaron is a prophet but in Numbers, Yahweh says otherwise. Moses was the only one of his siblings that was a prophet who the LORD spoke with mouth to mouth (face to face). Muhammad doesn’t fit this criterion as Allah never spoke to him it was always an “angel” delivering the Qur’ān to him this flys in the face of what the Torah says and is a contradiction.

These abdools from quranandBibleblog said God transmits His words “through an intermediary such as an angel”, that’s untrue as God didn’t say that.

The Qur’ān

The next point of confusion is about the book called “The Bible”. This book is not being referred to in these verses. The Bible is a collection of stories containing pieces of numbers 1-6 as well as lies and then being claimed as simply #1 by itself. When God in the Qur’an is talking about the Torah and Gospel, He is quoting from what He Himself revealed as a Scripture. Here is an example: During his ministry, Jesus wasn’t going around reading 1 Timothy to the people. This is part of writing something and claiming that it’s from God. God never revealed these books and one can’t say these are the Scripture.

Corruption of the Scriptures: Part I – Does Islam Confirm the Bible As a Scripture from God?

The silliness of Muslims, Christians know that Jesus Christ was not reading 1 Timothy to people, the scriptures of the New Testament were in the process of development meaning, they document the life of Christ. Therefore, it would be silly to say Jesus was reading 1 Timothy because those scriptures speak of Him, therefore, it had to come to past first before it could be written from inspiration from God.

He then quotes Sahih al-Bukhari 7547 saying the bolded portion is scripture.

Chapter: “A person who is perfect in reciting and memorizing the Qur’an will be with the honourable, pious and just scribes.” Sahih al-Bukhari 7547

“… ‘Neither say your prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone’ (17.110).

Satan made Qur’ān

The Islamic view is the Qur’ān is the direct words of Allah, is that correct? But they say all of the Qur’ān is Allah’s words, then how do they account for the words of Shaitan in Qur’ān is that from Allah too?

[59:16]  … Shaitan, when he says to man: “Disbelieve in Allah.” … Shaitan says: “I am free of you, I fear Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin …”11

The words found in 59:16 are the words of Shaitan and its scripture, which means it’s a satanic verse, Satan was able to make Qur’ān. I believe all of the Qur’ān is from Satan.

Are the words of Shaitan the words of Allah? Muhammad couldn’t tell between the words of Allah and Shaitan in Surah An-Najm (Al-Lat, Manat and al-Uzza the three daughters of Allah).12 That’s because Allah and Shaitan are the same, this explains why Shaitan’s words became Qur’ān and then had to be “abolished” afterwards.

Surah Al-Hajj 22:52

This can only mean that corruption entered the Qur’ān, why does Allah need to abolish what Satan threw in if it was not corrupted? That’s because it was and how do we know if this verse is not from Satan as well to keep us off guard?

Muhammad’s Scribe made Qur’ān

Muhammad takes the words of his scribe Abdullah Ibn Sa’d and adds them to Qur’ān, found in Surah Al-Mu’minun.

Surah Al-Mu’minun 23:12-14

According to Islam Muhammad had his scribe with him who had professed faith in Islam, the prophet one day asked his scribe to write something for him [23:12-14]. Muhammad was telling him what to write, when they reached a specific portion Abd Allah was amazed and said (So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!).13

Question are those words from Allah and if they are does this mean Abdullah Ibn Sa’d was a prophet also? Muhammad instructed Abdullah to add his words to Qur’ān. Because of this Abdullah left Islam after he found out Muhammad was a false prophet. We’ll provide the Tafsir from Wahidi.

The Qur’ān was corrupted because a man’s words found their way into the Qur’ān.

Ants made Qur’ān

Surah An-Naml 27:18

Are [27:18] Allah’s words? Here we have the ants words according to the text, as it says “the ants said “O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not.”” This can’t be the pure words of Allah unless Muslims want to say the ants words are Allah’s.14

Sulaiman (Solomon) made Qur’ān

Surah An-Naml 27:19

Lastly here we have the words of Sulaiman in 27:19, are these the words of Allah also? Muslims have to provide answers to their claim that every word in the Qur’ān is the word of Allah when we have Solomon (Sulaiman) speaking in this verse is this Allah speaking? If not then it’s not Allah’s word.15

Conclusion

How can a corrupted book the Qur’ān that has words from Shaitan, ants, men like Sulaiman and Abdullah Ibn Sa’d be the words of Allah? Allah said he sent the Torah, Injil and they cannot be corrupted. Unless Muslims reject what their book says claiming Allah is powerless to protect his own word?

Allah gave the Qur’ān in seven different versions meaning thier god was not capable of giving one version for all, he had to give seven because his word is not understandable. Allah was corrected by Muhammad as he originally was going to give one Qur’ān but Muhammad asked for more until he gave seven different versions.

When he recited it, Allah s Apostle said, “It was revealed in this way.” He then asked me to recite it. When I recited it, he said, “It was revealed in this way.

However, he might have been the first to enforce his criteria and canonize the Readings, as Melchert suggests, through political power. Ibn Mujāhid believed, or rather wanted us to believe, that by his time a consensus had been reached concerning the general criteria that could be applied to establish a valid Qur’ānic reading. This consensus comprises also the fact that no one could recite and teach the “obsolete” readings of the Companions, which disagree with the consonantal outline of the Uthmānic codices.

7 These verses speak bitingly of a people who have become dull and lethargic, insensitive and insensible, and whose leaders have lost both vision and wisdom.They seem to follow the preceding verses in close sequence. The first words of v.9 are most strictly rendered as: ‘linger on and be dumbfounded, besmear your eyes and be blind’; but a very similar text would give to the first of these clauses the meaning: ‘be bewildered, and dumbfounded’, which is a better parallel to the second. The words are, of course, spoken in bitter irony and proleptically, the full value of them would be: ‘continue in your obtuse ways, and you will become more and more bewildered, befuddled and blind’ (cf.6.9-10). The people are in a stupor from which they cannot be awakened; vision has forsaken the prophet and insight the seer. There is no longer anyman who can interpret the meaning of a vision; it is sealed away in impenetrable mystery (cf. Dan.2.4; 5.12, 15; etc.; Rw. 5.1-9; 6.1-3; etc.) Mauchline, J. (1962).

10 “The fact that Moses is reproached with two different things is immediately clear from the opening verse os this chapter. According to v1 this marriage with a Cushite woman is laid to his charge; according to v2 on the other hand, the reproach is to do with an unjustified claim to special privileges with regard to the reception of the divine word. This two fold reproach is certainly connected with the disunity of the narrative with regard to the role played by the persons who appear against Moses. The first reproach (v1) is made by ‘Miriam and Aaron’ (in that order). In what follows as hear of ‘Miriam and Aaron’ (vv. 4-5); and in vv. 9-15 Miriam appears as the principal guilty party and Aaron is on her side only in so far as he intercedes for her with Moses (vv. 10b-12). These facts are most probably to be explained as follows. The reproach with regard to the Cushite marriage actually comes originally from Miriam, who is the on who is punished for it, whereas the dispute concerning the special place accorded to Moses in matters concerning the receiving of revelation is reported as stemming from ‘Aaron and Miriam’, and this subject ends with a reproof from Yahweh (vv. 6-9).” Noth, M., & נות’, מרטין.

Just to show the ignorance of Abdools this article on Blogging Theology and reblogged by quranandBibleblog Does the Qur’ān misunderstand the Trinity? [Analysis of Sūrat al-ikhlāṣ]

In this article, we’ll provide evidence that Allah has no idea what Christians believe about the Trinity. We’re going to expose the poo poo of Muhammad and Allah.

All Muslims believe the name Allah is the personal name for their god. Let’s look at how the Qur’ān describes the Trinity and see if Allah knows best? First, let’s begin with the Christian definition of the Trinity.

Contrary to what Muslims would claim, Christians believe in One God[1] we are bound to what the scriptures say about who God is. Christianity is a monotheistic faith that sprang forth from Judaism as Jesus and the first Christians His disciples were all Jews.

Christians believe: There is one God, who exists as three co-equal, co-eternal persons, namely the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is sovereign and self-existent and is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, immutable, holy, righteous and loving. (Deut 6:4, John 1:1, Matt 28:19, 1 Cor 12:4-6, 2 Cor 13:14, Eph 1:11, 1 John 1:5, 4:16).[2]

Qur’ān Ezra is the son of God?

Let’s compare what the Qur’ān says about the Trinity and see if it matches the definition above? In Surah At-Tawbah 9:30 Allah says “The Jews say, ‘Ezra is the Son of God”. Is this correct did the Jews ever believe Ezra (Uzair) was the son of Allah?

Surah At-Tawbah 9:30

Not one Jew believes this, there’s no source outside of the Qur’ān that corroborates ayat 9:30 a challenge to Muslims, provide a source outside of the Qur’ān proving The Jews say, ‘Ezra is the Son of God’; the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the Son of God.’

Tovia Singer the Abdools favourite Rabbi said:

“Well it’s an interesting question that comes from the Qur’ān it’s chapter 9 it’s the chapter called repentance or it’s and it’s the chapter 9 Surah 9 verse 30 and there it says that the Jews say that Ezra is the son of God the Christians say that Allah the Christians say that the Messiah is the son of God they speak with their mouths but they really what they have essentially is something they received from the past and the speaking absolutely nonsense and essentially and Allah is against them because of what they’re saying essentially is a perversion something essentially like that and it was so that was very intriguing about this passage in the Qur’ān is that of course everybody who reads it is going wait I don’t know any Jew who believe that Ezra a great prophet and incidentally is considered a prophet in Islam as well I don’t know any Jew who believes that Ezra was the son of God.”

Why does the Quran Condemn the Jews for Revering Ezra as the Son of God? Rabbi Tovia Singer Responds

Allah is wrong and, therefore, the Qur’ān is wrong also unless there’s a source outside of the Qur’ān that agrees but there are none. Of course, Tovia Singer tries to side with the Muslims saying it was one heretical man because he’s a puppet. If we turn to the same commentators Tovia mentioned we see that they are referring to the Jews as a whole and are contrasting that to what Christians believe about Christ.

The Jews say Ezra is the son of God; and the Christians say The Messiah Jesus is the son of God. That is the utterance of their mouths for which they have no support nay imitating the utterances of those who disbelieved before them from among their forefathers mimicking them. God assail curse them! How they are deviated! turned away from the truth despite the proofs having been established.

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Muslims need to provide evidence for their claim, bring any Jew who believes Ezra is the son of God in the same sense Jesus is the Son of God. If you read the verse carefully there’s a slew of language speaking in the plural sense ie Jews, Christians, their mouths etc.[3]

Qur’ān Jesus and Mary are God’s?

In Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:116 Allah will ask Isa (“Jesus”) if he told people to take himself and his mother as deities. This is NOT what Christians believe that both Jesus and Mary are God’s! Bear in mind the Christian definition of the Trinity provided above doesn’t mention Mary at all.

We believe in one God (Deut 6:4) who exists as three co-equal, co-eternal persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Why doesn’t Allah know this if he is god, I thought Allah was supposed to know best?

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:116

Yet the Qur’ān accuses Christians of worshipping Mary as god? Again Muslims have zero sources other than the Qur’ān to substantiate this erroneous claim. There’s not a single Christian who believes Mary is a god. Perhaps our Muslim friends would point to Catholics, and while there are practices Christians and Catholics disagree on, they do not worship Mary as a god.

[5:116] … Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? … How can Allah get this wrong if he’s god? Their god cannot even get the Trinity right we challenge the Abdools to show us references that Christians worship Mary as god. Qur’ān has to be the dumbest book ever as Allah can’t get the Trinity correct, their own scholars affirm this.[4]

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:75

Allah again tries to prove that Christians somehow took Jesus and his mother as gods In Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:75 The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) had passed away before him. And his mother was a saintly woman. And they both used to eat (earthly) food. … Allah felt the need to mention they eat food, that this somehow proves they are human and refutes Christians.[5] Once again there’s not a single Christian who believes Mary is part of the Trinity, Allah can’t seem to get anything right.

“(They both used to eat food) needing nourishment and to relieve the call of nature. Therefore, they are just servants like other servants, not gods as ignorant Christian sects claim, may Allah’s continued curses cover them until the Day of Resurrection.”[6]

Why aren’t the Muslims providing any references proving that Christians worship Mary? There’s not a single bit of evidence brought to back the claim of the Qur’ān.

Surah At-Tawbah 9:31

Here in Surah At-Tawbah 9:31 we have a different Trinity by Allah. “They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One Allah. …” Allah can’t make up his mind, do the Christians worship:

  1. Allah, The Messiah and Mary
  2. Allah, Rabbis (Jews), Monks (Christians) and the Messiah

What happened to Mary in 9:31? All of a sudden she disappeared, Allah now adds Monks for the Christians. Even their god just like the Muslims doesn’t know what Christians believe.

It’s clear Allah doesn’t know what the Trinity is; even though we know Allah is really Muhammad masquerading as god who forgot what he said in one part of the Qur’ān and then contradicts himself in another part of the Qur’ān. Big poo poo!

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:17

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:17 They indeed have disbelieved who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. … And Allah is Able to do all things.

Muslims believe Allah is the name of their god, so how can the Qur’ān say that Christians believe Allah is the Messiah, in other words, Jesus is Allah the name of their god? Additionally, the verse says Allah can do all things, yet he cannot have a son because he needs a girlfriend to have sexual intercourse [6:101]. What kind of god is limited that he needs a woman (spouse or consort) to have a son. This is how humans produce offspring and Allah can only do what his creation can in producing a son.[7]

This ayat only serves to prove that Allah cannot do all things as he’s limited in what he’s capable of. Yahweh is capable of having a Son as that’s not impossible for Him, this is why the God of the Bible is called Almighty.

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:72

Here we see the redundancy of Allah in Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:72 “They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. …”, this god repeats himself over and over that’s how cults get their doctrine into your head. Allah has nothing new to say just repetitive garbage.

Muslims attack the heretical teaching of Tritheism, believing in three separate Gods. Christians believe only in One God as the Torah proclaims. Allah cannot understand how the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the 1 Almighty God. If God could be placed in a perfect box-like Allah can then you need to find yourself a new god.

There’s plurality in unity in the Torah we read how a husband and wife become one flesh. Does this mean they become one person? Of course not! Adam and Eve were still 2 separate persons who now as husband and wife are in perfect union with one another.

Genesis 2:24

Islam lacks this concept as Muslims are under the false assumption that God must be a solitary person, how can Allah be “the Merciful” (الرَّحِيمِ) if he Allah existed all alone. He would have a need to create mankind first in order to be merciful, this means Allah lacked something and out of necessity had to create mankind. The same question has to be asked how can Allah be “Ar-Rahman” (the Most Gracious) (الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ) if he had none to be gracious too? Allah is truly limited.

In comparison Yahweh, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit were always eternally together in perfect union or fellowship. The God of the Bible is Love and didn’t need to create in order to be loving because all 3 Persons of the Trinity (Godhead) can be loving to one another before creation. Yahweh never lacked anything and it was out of love He created mankind.

Just like Adam and Eve are a picture of the union between all 3 Persons in the Trinity.[8] God is all self-sufficient and is sociable among the three Eternal Persons, we have communication all throughout the New Testament as the Son communicated with His Father (John 12:27-28).

The Father acknowledges His love for the Son (Matthew 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 9:35).[9] While Allah the god of Islam is mute and doesn’t communicate with his creation.

Conclusion

What have we learned today? Well, we’ve learned that Allah doesn’t know the concept of the Trinity and attributes false accusations toward Jews and Christians. Muslims believe in a god that lacked and needed to create mankind in order to show he’s “merciful”, this cannot be god. The true God Yahweh is superior in every way as all 3 Persons eternally loved each other and had perfect fellowship. The God of the Bible communicates not only between each other, but also communicates and loves His creation, which includes Muslims also.

Wake up Muhammadians Allah is a powerless idol who cannot provide anything. Come into the Light of Jesus Christ who created you in His image. May the Lord be magnified!

The shadow of the Shema “Hear O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord” (Deut. 6:4), though never quoted in the New Testament (though alluded to in James 2:19), broods over its pages with all the weight it carried in Old Testament times, being the chief and holiest declaration of the Jewish religion.

[2] “God the Father is preeminently the one who plans and ordains and initiates the course of history and the events that take place. The Father sends the Son into the world to accomplish redemption. The idea os sending presupposes that the Father ha already determined a mission for the Son. What the Son accomplishes is what the Father has planned. The Holy Spirit applies the accomplishments of the Son to those who are united to the Son by faith. (See fig 12.1) So we have three aspects: planning, accomplishment, and application. In the large story of redemption, these aspects have a succession in time. The planning belongs to the past. God has already planned from before the foundation of the world what he would do in redemption (Eph 1:4; 1 Peter 1:20; Rev 13:8). The accomplishments belong especially to the time of the earthly life of Christ, including his death and resurrection (“made manifest,” 1 Peter 1:20).

Sheikh Uthman Ibn Farooq Get’s Busted

If you’re familiar with Muslim Dawah, there’s a Muslim Missionary in Balboa Park in San Diego by the name of Ibn Farooq. He has set up a booth and challenges Christians and others trying to prove that Islam is true. He brings out a marked/tabbed Bible which he uses to try to convince Christians of supposed “contradictions.”

If a Christian makes the claim that Allah doesn’t exist, Muslims say that Allah is mentioned in the Arabic Bible. If Allah of the Qur’ān is the same God of the Bible then we should be able to compare them both and come to the conclusion that they are the same God. But are they?

In this article we’ll do just that, we’re going to look at both the Bible and Qur’ān to see if Allah and Yahweh are the same?

Surah An-Nisa 4:82

The Son of God (Bible VS Qur’ān)

It’s a well-known fact that Christians worship Jesus Christ as the Son of God, He’s the eternal Son who is God. The Bible mentions this in multiple places (Daniel 3:25, Matthew 4:3, 6, Matthew 14:33, Matthew 26:63, Matthew 27:40, 43, 54, Mark 1:1, Mark 3:11, Mark 15:39, Luke 1:35, Luke 3:38, Luke 4:3, 9, 41, Luke 22:70, John 1:34, 49, John 5:25, John 9:35, John 10:36, John 11:4, 27, John 19:7, John 20:31, Acts 8:37, Acts 9:20, Romans 1:4, 2 Corinthians 1:19, Galatians 2:20, Ephesians 4:13, Hebrews 4:14, Hebrews 6:6, Hebrews 7:3, Hebrews 10:29, 1 John 3:8, 1 John 4:15, 1 John 5:5, 10, 12-13, 20, Revelation 2:18).

In the Arabic Bible, we have verses such as John 9:35 where the Lord Jesus asked the blind man He healed if he now believes in the Son of God.

John 9:35

In the Arabic Bible, the words are (أَتُؤْمِنُ بِابْنِ اللَّهِ؟) translated “Do you believe in the Son of God?”

What about the most well known Bible verse in the world John 3:16? The God of the Bible has a Son, Jesus Christ. In the Arabic Bible, the words (بَذَلَ ابْنَهُ الْوَ) are translated “gave his Son”.1 That means Muslims agree that Allah has a Son since they want to use the Arabic Bible to prove Allah exists.

John 3:16

If Muslims appeal to the Bible claiming the word Allah used in the Bible means the same God then Muslims must also accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and thereby they refute their own Qur’ān.

Here’s where the Qur’ān contradicts the Bible, it’s well known that Muslims don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God as the Qur’ān says. The Qur’ān says Allah doesn’t beget nor was He begotten.

Surah Al-Isra 17:43

I would like to see how Muslims reconcile this? You cannot appeal to the Bible claiming we worship the same God and at the same time reject it because remember Sheikh Uthman Ibn Farooq claims they are the same. And the Muslims love Uthman, will they continue to agree with Sheikh Uthman Ibn Farooq?

The Trinity (Bible VS Qur’ān)

Muslims love asking Christians “where in the Bible does it say, Trinity?” This is a valid question and honestly speaking the word Trinity doesn’t appear in the Bible, another word does and that’s Godhead.

Additionally, we have multiple verses which teach the concept of the Trinity.

Matthew 3:16-17 we have a clear view of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus goes to John the Baptist and gets baptised. When this happens the heavens were opened and the Spirit of God came down upon Christ. Lastly, there’s a voice from heaven saying this is my beloved Son, in one moment you have all 3 Persons of the Trinity.

Matthew 3:16-17

But just as our Muslim friends ask to see the word Trinity in the Bible, can they show us the word Tawheed in the Qur’ān? It doesn’t exist. The word Tawheed means unification NOT oneness as Muslims like to believe.

Even though our friends still say Yahweh is Allah this cannot be true. The God of the Bible is Triune, Allah is not and therefore they cannot be the same.

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:73

This Qur’ān verse 5:73 contradicts another verse in the Qur’ān which proves the Trinity, which you’ll see further down (remember Qur’ān 4:82 at the beginning of this article). If these are supposed to be the words of god why are we finding all of these contradictions? The challenge made by Allah falls flat.

Jesus Christ is God (Bible VS Qur’ān)

Colossians 2:9

This is a problematic verse for Muslims because the context is speaking of Jesus Christ as God. We’re told that believers (Christians) in Christ “are And ye are complete in him,” and that Jesus is “the head of all principality and power:”

“Paul here asserts that “all the πληρωμα of the Godhead,” not just certain aspects, dwells in Christ and in bodily form (σωματικως, late and rare adverb, in Plutarch, inscription, here only in N.T.), dwells now in Christ in his glorified humanity (Php 2:9-11 ), “the body of his glory” (τω σωματ της δοξης). The fulness of the God-head was in Christ before the Incarnation (Joh 1:1,18; Php 2:6 ), during the Incarnation (Joh 1:14,18; 1Jo 1:1-3 ). It was the Son of God who came in the likeness of men (Php 2:7 ). Paul here disposes of the Docetic theory that Jesus had no human body as well as the Cerinthian separation between the man Jesus and the aeon Christ. He asserts plainly the deity and the humanity of Jesus Christ in corporeal form. Col 2:10” New Testament Greek scholar AT Robertson in his book Word Pictures In The New Testament.2

Godhead

The Inflected Greek word is θεότητος (theótitos) stemming from the Root word θεότης (theotēs) and the Root Word of θεότης is θεός (theós).

θεότης theótēs, theh-ot’-ace; divinity (abstractly):—godhead. Biblical Usage (deity, the state of being God, Godhead)

The Qur’ān also proves the Trinity and that Jesus is God and Muslims are unaware of this fact in [4:171], we’re here to bust Muhammad and his lying ways. “Christ Jesus” otherwise known as Isa according to Muslims was (1) a messenger of Allah which means he’s a man (2) His Word or the Word of Allah which means uncreated because Muslims believe Allah’s word is eternal (3) and a spirit proceeding from Him this means a spirit proceeding from Allah.

Surah An-Nisa 4:171

This verse in the Qur’ān is trying to disprove the Trinity but in actuality confirms it. As Isa (“Jesus”) himself is 3, a messenger, His Word and a spirit proceeding from Allah. And since Allah’s Word is not created and he said “Be” (Allah created everything by saying Be) and it was as Muslims believe. That means Isa is not created and Allah created everything through Jesus, and Jesus is a spirit coming from Allah.3 Unless Muslims disagree and want to say Allah’s word is created but they won’t dare to say that.

Jesus is wakalimatuhu 

(إِنَّمَا الْمَسِيحُ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ وَكَلِمَتُهُ)

Conclusion

In this article, we proved that Jesus is the Son of God from the Arabic Bible, that the Trinity is found in the Qur’ān and that Jesus is God. It’s very easy to prove Islam is false and bust Abdools from their own books. We pray for their souls to be saved by coming to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. Leave Islam before it’s too late, the only True God is found in the Bible come to Jesus Christ for everlasting life.

Can Muslims be “Friends” with Non-Muslims?

Our Muslim friends are at it again, we enjoy showing them the truth time and time again perhaps one day they’ll learn that they don’t know as much as they think they do. Either way, we love Muslims and pray for their salvation. And that brings up something quite hilarious.

On their blog, it reads “A Quiet Place in Cyberspace Dedicated to the Search for Truth and Salvation”, this word comes from the Bible as Christians use it to explain the redemption Christ Jesus has procured for us. Why are Muslims using Christian terminology?

Salvation in Arabic is (خلاص), this word was placed in Google translate, note on the bottom left. It mentions that Christians believe in salvation through faith in Christ. In the Qur’ān the word salvation is not used, you’ll find words like successful, attainment, victory etc. Yusuf Ali primarily had translated words like (الْمُفْلِحِينَ) which means “prosperous” into “salvation”, this is a deceptive translation.

Also provided is the Arabic dictionary as you can see the word (خلاص) and its definition. Therefore, we highly recommend that qnBb changes its title to reflect what Islam teaches.

Don’t expect them to change it because they dabble in deception and want people to think there’s salvation in Islam when in reality there’s none. Even Muhammad didn’t know if he would make it to Jannah, but I digress that this is a topic for another time.

The “Evidence” 2 John 9–11 (Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:28)

This will turn out bad for the Abdools, I hope they’re prepared. In their weak attempt to attack Christianity Muslims grossly misinterpret scriptures in hopes to get people to believe in their false religion. The ignorance of Abdools is on another level!

The unknown author of this letter did not mince words regarding associating with unbelievers. A Christian was forbidden to greet such a person or to let him in his house.

Can Christians be “Friends” with Non-Christians?

Internal evidence for the authorship of 1 John:

Incorrect, we do know who wrote 2 John. It was the Apostle John the same one who wrote John and 1 John said:

John 13:23

During the last supper in the upper room before Judas Iscariot would leave the company to betray Jesus to the Pharisees, John was sitting close to Christ, he was an eyewitness of all that Jesus Christ did which leads to 1 John 1:1.

1 John 1:1

The disciple John was part of the inner circle along with Peter and James. The 3 were privy to when Christ revealed His glory on the top of the Mount of Transfiguration. John would have touched, heard, and seen the miracles of Christ personally.

Keywords (emphasis ours): “That which was from the beginning, … we have heard,seen with our eyes, … we have looked upon,our hands have handled, of the Word of life;”.

A clear reading of the Gospel of John along with 1st, 2nd 3rd John and Revelation, John provides evidence that the one named the beloved disciple, also known as the disciple whom Jesus loved, is also the author of the named books.

This known phrase “the disciple whom Jesus loved” materialises a total of 5 times in the Gospel of John. This disciple has a prominent role to the extent that Simon Peter asked “Lord, and what shall this man do?” in reference to the beloved disciple’s ministry in John chapter 21.

External evidence for the authorship of 1 John:

Quotes from the Epistle as being authored by John the Apostle are Irenaeus 1 in his work against Heresies mentions John by name stating that he taught certain principles namely Jesus as the only begotten Son of God, in which the Father created all things.

Other notable mentions are Clement of Alexandria,2 Tertullian, Origen and his pupil Dionysius who argued for the authorship of Johannine works.

If they understood the background of 2 John they wouldn’t make this grave mistake. The background of 2 John is a continuation of 1 John. The context is Christians who were travelling from house to house, in which Christians would gather for worship and fellowship before the construction of Church buildings. The Apostle John was writing to warn of false teachers who were masquerading as Christians and bringing into the congregation erroneous doctrine.

This is the background of 2 John, with that context in view we can now turn to the passage qnBb brought into question.

2 John 9-11

2 John 9-11 explains how if an individual comes and teaches false doctrine (like Muhammad) is not welcomed. These false teachers don’t “abide in the doctrine of Christ”, and what is that doctrine? It’s that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, God in the flesh, that He died for our sins and rose from the dead for our justification. That we can have salvation through the atoning death of the Lamb of God.

As well as the doctrine of the Trinity (Abdool trigger!), hence John writes stating whoever denies the fact that the Father and the Son collectively are the One True God. We are to not allow them to spread their cancerous doctrine in the assembly.3 Nowhere does it speak about not being friends with non-Christians. The Lord Jesus is called a friend of sinners (Matthew 11:19; Luke 7:34) as followers of Christ we are called to imitate Him.

If someone posing as a Muslim at a Masjid was spreading teachings contrary to Islam they wouldn’t be welcomed. This is the context of 2 John, he’s not telling Christians they cannot be friends with non-Christians. Now let’s bring this into the Qur’ān where Muslims are told not to be friends with non-Muslims. In Surah Al-Ma’idah the words from their god Allah says:

Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:28

Believers are discouraged in Islam from taking unbelievers as friends, if they do Allah will not help them. And it gets worse. Allah commands Muslims to not be friends with people who don’t believe in Allah.

Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:51

According to their Qur’ān Muslims are not allowed to take Jews or Christians as friends. It’s plain and simple, they try to add the word “war” etc. This verse mentions nothing about war, it has to do with a person’s BELIEF because they are not a Muslim, therefore, it’s not allowed to be friends with them.4 This is why the Qur’ān says if you do then you are one of them, in other words no longer a Muslim.

Here’s the Tafsir (emphasis ours):

(Let not the believers take) the believers ought not to take [the hypocrites:] ‘Abdullah Ibn Ubayy and his companions [and] (disbelievers) the Jews (for their friends) so as to become mighty and honourable (in preference to believers) who are sincere. (Whoso doeth that) seeking might and honour [by taking the hypocrites and disbelievers as friends] (hath no connection with Allah) has no honour, mercy or protection from Allah (unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them) save yourselves from them, (taking (as it were) security) saving yourselves from them by speaking in a friendly way towards them with, while your hearts dislikes this. (Allah bideth you beware (only) of Himself) regarding the shunning of unlawful killing, unlawful sex, unlawful property, consuming intoxicants, false testimony and associating partners with Allah. (Unto Allah is the journeying) the return after death.5

Tafsir Ibn ‘Abbas

The donkeys at qnBb are unaware the homes spoken of by John are house churches. Christians gathered in different homes to worship and learn doctrine spoken of by the Lord Jesus passed on to His Apostles, and to the disciples. The 2nd Epistle of John is a letter warning the believers of the Gnostics who claimed “secret knowledge”, John was against their false teachings as they denied Christ came in the flesh.

The muta’h boys are arguing for heretical teaching. The Gnostics taught Jesus didn’t come in the flesh, that’s a direct rejection of the Qur’ān as this would deny that Isa came in the flesh. It’s hilarious they quote the church fathers as if they’re saying Christians cannot be friends with non-Christians.

The context is not to fellowship with those who teach erroneous doctrines masquerading as a Christian when they’re anything but. Cults such as Arianism, and Sabellianism are against orthodox Christianity.

It’s in this context the church fathers are read, when done so it’s clear to see they’re against cult teachings not people. Looking at the quotes in light of people like Jehovah’s Witnesses who teach Jesus is not God (Arianism), Oneness Pentecostals who say Jesus and the Father are the same Person (Sabellianism) or Mormons who teach Christ is one of many gods (polytheism).6

  1. Tertullian: “Although we ought to be seeking at all times, where ought we to seek? Among the heretics, where all is foreign and opposed to our truth, with whom we are forbidden to associate?”
  2. Ambrose of Milan: “Since it is written that we should avoid such people, how can we not assume that someone who associates with Arians is also an exponent of their heresy?”
  3. Hilary of Arles: “Here you see an example of excommunication in the New Testament, both from table fellowship at home and from table fellowship in church.”
  4. Irenaeus of Lyons: “By wishing that we do not even give them a welcome, John, the Lord’s disciple, made their condemnation even stronger.”
  5. Clement of Alexandria: “John forbids us to greet such people or to offer them hospitality, which in the circumstances is not at all unkind. But he also warns us not to argue or dispute with people who are unable to handle the things of God, lest we should be taken away from the true doctrine by clever arguments which have the appearance of truth. Furthermore, I think that it is wrong to pray with such people, because during times of prayer there is a moment for greeting and sharing the peace.”
  6. Didymus the Blind: “Anyone who dwells in the doctrine of the gospel and who acts according to its teaching will separate himself from those who think and act differently.”

The Abdools then said:

“… we saved the best for last. Basil “The Great” plainly stated that Christians cannot be “friends” with non-Christians. …”

Can Christians be “Friends” with Non-Christians?

Let’s be clear Christians follow Jesus Christ, not the church fathers or anyone else, qnBb mentions Basil “The Great” (emphasis ours):

It is obvious that those who make friends of people who SPEAK FALSELY about God and who even eat with them do not love the Lord who made them and who feeds them. Instead of being content with that food they are led away into blasphemy against the one who feeds them.”

Basil “The Great”

I guess qnBb likes people speaking falsely about Allah their god. Perhaps they can take a few non-Muslims out to dinner who speak against Islam unless qnBb are hypocrites and won’t prove otherwise?

The “Evidence” 1 Corinthians 5:9–11

Thank you muta’h boys for a good laugh, it was fun! Muslim ignorance rears its ugly head again, 1 Corinthians 5:9–11 is speaking about someone who’s in fellowship in a local assembly. In other words, a Christian who is going around practising sin, as Christians we cannot tolerate sin among the fellowship of believers and the offending party is to be put out of assembly fellowship.

By doing so these sinful practices will not spread to the rest of the believers. As it’s said leaven corrupts and spreads like yeast in bread. The Lord Jesus said, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod” (Mark 8:15).

And in keeping in context with 1 Corinthians Paul the apostle said: “Your glorying [is] not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.” (1 Corinthians 5:6-8).

Garland, D. E. (2003). 1 Corinthians (Ser. Baker exegetical commentary on the new testament). Baker Academic. p. 184-185

Garland in his exegetical commentary on the New Testament draws from the text, that the Corinthians had a problem in the church. There was an incident of an individual who committed incest with his father’s wife, this sin was unacceptable but the believers in the Corinthian church didn’t confront the man, thereby being complacent. Paul rebukes them saying this should not have happened.7

Muhammad on the other hand committed all sorts of sexual sins, he had sex with a minor as a child paedophile (Sahih al-Bukhari 5133), any believing woman can give herself to the prophet for sex (Quran 33:50).

Muhammad contradicted himself because he said in the book of Jame’ Alsag’er (Imam Al-Soiuty), Hadith 2994: “Any woman, [if] she gives herself to a man to marry him without her father’s, or man of the house’s permission, she is a whore”

Jame’ Alsag’er (Imam Al-Soiuty), Hadith 2994

Comparing this to 33:50 we have to ask the question, how can the woman, who gives herself to marry a man be a whore, but the woman who gives herself to Muhammad be a good/pious woman? Challenge give one woman’s name who became a wife to Muhammad by giving herself to him. None of his wives gave herself to him as there’s no such thing as marriage in Islam. Proof Muhammad was a sexually immoral man.

Conclusion

The truth is that Muslims worship an immoral man called Muhammad which means “the praised one”, how can a sinful man be praised? As a Christian, the only One who gets praised is God alone. The black stone smoochers love sin and are hypocritical, these are traits from Satan himself because that’s who Allah is. We can only continue to provide evidence from their own sources, showing them how sinful their prophet is, a man who allowed sexual immorality, lying, killing, extortion and a whole slew of other sinful practices.

We’ll close out this article with the words of their “god” Allah, notice how Allah wants to spread terror into the hearts of unbelievers. That’s not all he wants Muslims to smite people on the neck and cut off their fingertips.

Surah Al-Anfal 8:12

What god commands such wickedness? Allah must love chicken fingers, maybe we should get him a bucket of KFC? Come to Christ our Muslim friends, the Lord Jesus knocks will you invite Him in? (Revelation 3:20)

And Allah (Shameful and Perish He’ll be) doesn’t know best!

1 “Further, they teach that John, the disciple of the Lord, indicated the first Ogdoad, expressing themselves in these words: John, the disciple of the Lord, wishing to set forth the origin of all things, so as to explain how the Father produced the whole, lays down a certain principle,—that, namely, which was first-begotten by God, which Being he has termed both the only-begotten Son and God, in whom the Father, after a seminal manner, brought forth all things.” Irenaeus of Lyons, “Irenæus against Heresies, 1.8.5.” in The Apostolic Fathers with Justin Martyr and Irenaeus, ed.

2 ”Peter having preached the word publicly at Rome, and by the Spirit proclaimed the Gospel, those who were present, who were numerous, entreated Mark, inasmuch as he had attended him from an early period, and remembered what had been said, to write down what had been spoken. On his composing the Gospel, he handed it to those who had made the request to him; which coming to Peter’s knowledge, he neither hindered nor encouraged. But John, the last of all, seeing that what was corporeal was set forth in the Gospels, on the entreaty of his intimate friends, and inspired by the Spirit, composed a spiritual Gospel.” Clement of Alexandria, “Fragments of Clemens Alexandrinus,” in Fathers of the Second Century: Hermas, Tatian, Athenagoras, Theophilus, and Clement of Alexandria (Entire), ed.

3 “Such hospitality was open to easy abuse, however. There was the false teacher, on the one hand, who yet posed as a Christian: should hospitality be extended to him? And there was the more obvious mountebank, the false prophet with false credentials, who was dominated less by the creed he had to offer than by the material profit and free board and lodging he hoped to gain. It is against this background that we must read the Second and Third Epistles of John, for in them the Elder issues instructions concerning whom to welcome and whom to refuse, and why. Genuine Christian missionaries, he writes, maybe recognized both by the message they bring and by the motive which inspires them. If they faithfully proclaim the doctrine of Christ (cf. 2 Jn. 7), and if they have set out not for filthy lucre but for the sake of His name (3 Jn. 7), then they should both be received and helped forward on their journey ‘as befits God’s service (3 Jn. 6, RSV)” Stott JRW.

Response to an Abdool: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

The Lord Jesus Christ be magnified! We pray for Muslims to be saved by them confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:11). Let us now have some halal fun.

Here’s our response to our Muslim friends at quranandBibleblog article titled Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels? We pray for their lost souls to come to the salvation Jesus Christ has procured for them at the cross of Calvary.

On the Title “Abdul”

Before we get into the main topic, it is quite comical that this obvious fan of “Christian Prince” refers to Muslims as “Abduls”, as if it is an insult. Though it is not my actual name, I am proud to call myself Abdullah, the slave/servant of Allah. The irony is that Jesus is also the “slave/servant of Allah”, as stated in Acts 3:13:

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

Do I hear crying? I think the Abdools need tissues. The ignorance of Muslims is astounding! To be a slave and servant are not the same. Notice the deception of from quranandBibleblog, they tried to equate the two as if they are the same when they are different.

First Muhammad’s father was named Abdullāh (عبدالله) which means: Slave of Allah, but Muhammad’s father was a pagan so who was he slave of? The meaning of Abdul is slave NOT servant. We’ve just busted quranandBibleblog in their deception because they have no honour and lie just like their father the devil. Our Muslim friends mentioned Acts 3:13 claiming Jesus is a slave of God, here’s the verse:

Acts 3:13

In Acts 3:13 the word (παῖδα) has a wide range of meanings.

Definition: boy, child, youth, usually below the age of puberty and not necessarily male; a personal servant, slave, attendant, with a possible implication of kind regard or close relationship; the word used in the Greek version of Isaiah, quoted in NT, for servant of the Lord.

servant noun: ser·​vant | \ ˈsər-vənt
Definition of servant: one that performs duties about the person or home of a master or personal employer (emphasis ours).[1]

slave noun: ˈslāv
Definition of slave(1) a person held in forced servitude (2) a person who is completely subservient to a dominating influence (emphasis ours).[2]

Christians are servants because Jesus Christ is our God/Master. But Abdools are slaves of Allah because he’s forced or dominated them.

Mark 10:42-45

Jesus Christ said any believer who desired to be great must become a servant (διάκονος / diakonos) which means a minister (to serve). And the one who desires to be first would become a slave (δοῦλος / doulos) to all, once again we got quranandBibleblog busted.

The muta’h boys fail to understand that a slave is forced into slavery against their will a “servant is one who is hired to perform regular household or other duties and receives compensation as opposed to a slave”,[3] while a servant is someone who receives compensation for their services.

Here are points made from differencebetween.com on how slaves and servants differ from one another to prove they aren’t the same.[4]

  1. Many servants lived a life similar to that of slaves, but they were hopeful of freedom after the end of their contract.
  2. Obedience is the essence of slavery whereas service is the essence of servitude.
  3. Anyone offering his services is a servant whereas anyone offering obedience is a slave.
  4. A servant is free to work for the chosen master, whereas a slave is forced to work against his will.

As Christians, we’re not only servants as Jesus Christ Himself said He’s a servant (not slave). We read that in the following verses:

Matthew 20:28
Mark 10:45

To minister (διακονῆσαι / diakoneō) means to be a servant, the Lord Jesus not only gave us the definition of what it means to be a servant He also demonstrated the role of one who’s a servant it’s a wonderful well-known passage the story of Jesus Washing the Disciples’ Feet in the book of John.

John 13:5-17

Not only did Christ say He came to serve, He told believers we are to serve one another, not that we are slaves like the Abdool. Additionally, the Lord Jesus said that Christians are children of God. We have an intimate relationship with God as He is our Father.

A slave doesn’t have an intimate relationship as they are forced by Allah to be slaves, and Christ said a slave (δοῦλος) doesn’t abide in the house forever, but a son does.[5] If they are so proud to be called Abdool then why explain “how proud they are?”

Deception by Abdools

… he tried to protect his Bible by attempting to use the Quran and Sunnah as a shield (i.e., by claiming that both “confirm” that the Bible is true scripture). Instead of wasting time with this pathetic distraction, let it suffice that this issue has already dealt with in a separate article.

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

In other words, quranandBibleblog is calling their prophet a donkey because Muhammad said that he believes in the Torah and Injil. Are the Abdools ready to say that the Torah and Injil we have in our possession is not sent by Allah? Let me get this Abdool busted.

The Qur’ān says the TorahPsalms, and the Gospel were all given by Allah. But, Muslims claim the Bible is corrupted. If that’s true, then it would seem they do not believe the Qur’ān since Allah says that the Word of Allah cannot be changed:

The Arabic says (وَلَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ ۚ) the words “i.e decrees” in the brackets is a false translation as that’s not in the Arabic text. Other ayats which speak about Allah’s words cannot be changed are Surah Al-An’am 6:115 and Surah Yunus 10:64. If they want to continue to insist that Allah’s words were corrupted then they’re saying the Qur’ān is wrong, and the potato god Allah couldn’t protect his words (Torah and Injil).

We Muslims believe that the Bible has been distorted and tampered with by Christian scholars, and it now contains falsehoods and myths that no one with a sound mind can believe. Reading these distorted books is not permissible, except for one who has enough Islamic knowledge to be able to distinguish between truth and falsehood in them, and who reads them with the aim of refuting their followers and convincing them that what is in these books is falsehood.[6]

Learning English by Studying the Bible

And the onus is on them to provide the original Torah and Injil if they would like to say “we don’t have it.” Bring the proof, to say something is corrupted means it would have had to be unaltered to a certain point and then changed. Thereby calling their god a liar.

What does προσκυνέω (proskyneō) Mean?

We’ve said it before countless times, context is key, the issue is that the Qur’ān is a book without context and Muslims lack the understanding of how context is used when determining how any word is to be interpreted. The muta’h boys claim I ignored the fact that “bow down” can be used interchangeably when referring to God or a human of high authority such as a king etc. And while we can agree this still doesn’t change the fact that context should always be used and not only the concordance.

To showcase what we mean by this we’ll take a look at the following verse from the Gospel of Matthew.

Matthew 18:35

In Matthew 18:35 the context is on forgiveness, the Lord Jesus’ disciple Peter asked “how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?” Christ tells them to forgive “seventy times seven.” He then gives a parable to His disciples concerning the kingdom of heaven which spoke of a certain king. This king began to reckon with his servants, one of the servants owed ten thousand talents and the servant didn’t have the money to repay the king.

The Lord was going to sell him, his wife and children and all that he owned. The servant fell down worshipped him asking to be patient and promising to pay what he owed. The Lord had compassion on him and forgave him of his debt. The same servant went out and came across a fellow-servant who owed him a hundred pence. But the servant had no compassion grabbing him by the throat saying pay me what you owe. Having him thrown into prison.

The king who forgave the servant of his debt was angry saying “O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt” and had him tossed to the tormentors because the servant had no compassion for his fellow man. Verse 35 mentions the word “brother” we know through context the word brother doesn’t refer to men only but to females also.

The same is true of προσκυνέω the surrounding context (as mentioned before in my original post) determines how the word is to be interpreted. With that said let’s move on, quranandBibleblog mentioned

“So, the fact of the matter is that proskyneō is not limited to simply religious “worship” given to a deity, but rather “bowing down” to a superior being, even if it was another human being. One could compare it to the angels being commanded to bow down to Adam (peace be upon him), as mentioned in the Quran:”

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

Again, the surrounding context is taken into account when the word “worshipped” is used. For example in the Bible when a person came in contact with God they realised how sinful they are compared to the holiness of God. In the Prophets (Nevi’im) we have the story of Isaiah seeing the LORD on His throne, the angels flying around the throne saying “Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Isaiah 6:1-5

There’s no mistaking this is God the angels are worshipping, when Isaiah understood who he stood in front of, he stated that he (Isaiah) was unclean a sinner. Why? Because anyone standing before the Holy God (Muhammad included) realises they’re impure in comparison. Hence the reaction of Peter in the Gospel of Luke.

Luke 5:1-8

Peter and his brother Andrew were fishing, Jesus knowing all things gave instructions to put the net down into the water. The same way Isa (Jesus) knows everything you’ve eaten and have in your homes, Isa also created life from clay; this is found in Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:49.

The Arabic says “How do I create for you from clay the likeness of a bird, then I blow into it and it becomes a bird” (أَنِّىٓ أَخْلُقُ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلطِّينِ كَهَيْـَٔةِ ٱلطَّيْرِ فَأَنفُخُ فِيهِ فَيَكُونُ طَيْرًۢا), it wasn’t Allah that created the bird because Isa says “I create.” Muslims will point out that Allah gave him the ability to do this, which means Allah made Jesus God, thank you very much!

Back to Luke 5:1-8, Peter mentioned they’ve been trying to catch fish all night and found none, he listened to Christ and did what He said.

It was at that time they caught so many fishes the net broke and they asked others to help them pull the fish into the boat, there were so many fish the boat began to sink. It was at this point Simon realised who was standing in front of him and said “Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord” echoing the vision Isaiah saw of God.

Another passage is when Jesus was in the temple healing and doing miracles, the people came to question Him after the Father answered Him from heaven. They asked how can Christ abide forever, and inquired as to who is the Son of Man? The Lord Jesus tells us that He is the Light, the text tells us that even though Jesus has done many miracles before their eyes they still don’t believe. And Isaiah (Ἠσαΐας) is then quoted extensively.

John 12:37-41

This is why the disciples worshipped (προσεκύνησαν (Aorist Active Indicative)) Christ as God after He Walked on the Water (Matthew 14:22-33; Mark 6:45–52; John 6:15–21 ) and controlled nature itself more specifically the sea and wind proving He’s the God who controls all creation (Matthew 8:23–27; Mark 4:35-41; Luke 8:22–25 ).[7] This is spoken in the book of Psalms about how the LORD stills the raging sea. Christ said “peace be still” to the sea and the sea obeyed Him in Mark 4:39.

Psalm 89:8-9

While prostration can be an act of worship depending on the context and intention of the person, it is not necessarily the same thing as “worship”.

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

Note what was said “While prostration can be an act of worship depending on the context and intention of the person”, now you see the hypocrisy how is it quranandBibleblog says the context dictates the intention. Yet if we say the same they will deny this. In Islam, it’s absolutely forbidden to worship anyone other than Allah, but their god commands the angels and Iblis to “prostrate” bringing confusion. And we know God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), once again proving Allah is not god.

The worship of Adam in the Qur’ān was a result of Allah’s challenge to the angels, the angels asked “Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood”, Allah then accused them of not being truthful.

Why would Allah command the angels to bow down to Adam, Allah is the first one to commit shirk. We can easily provide proof this was worship to Adam by taking (سُجود) and looking it up in the Arabic dictionary. I’ll provide 3 different Arabic dictionaries.

3 different Arabic dictionaries agree with us that (سُجود) prostration is also worship. We just busted these Abdools once again.

Our friends quoted 1 Chronicles 29:20 thinking this would be difficult to answer, king David’s lineage is the one in which the Messiah Jesus Christ would come. David is not being worshipped as God but he did receive civil reverence. When the Jews worshipped the LORD they did so with religious worship, as to the king they blessed king David in civil homage to the one who was God’s representative.

There’s also another fact we need to mention, the Torah’s text is older than the New Testament. The OT would be written in Aramaic and Hebrew, how many times have we heard Muslims say Jesus spoke Aramaic. Unfortunately for them, the same verse in the Aramaic of the ancient Peshitta text 1 Chronicles 29:20 doesn’t say “worshipped the LORD, and the king”.[8]

The Holy Bible from the Aramaic of the Peshitta

The following is the text from the Peshitta for 1 Chronicles 29:20 “Then David said to all the peo­ple of Israel, Now bless the Lord your God. And all the people blessed the Lord God of their fathers, and bowed down and worshipped the Lord, and they also blessed King David.[9]

Sorry, Abdools I know you thought you had something there but you don’t. This makes my point the more clearer, the Abdools don’t understand context as the Qur’ān doesn’t have context but is a big jumbled mess of a book. I mentioned in the previous article Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels? An unbeliever falling down and worshipping in the midst of a Christian Assembly (1 Corinthians 14:25). This person is not worshipping the Christians but he is worshipping God in the midst of Christians.

I can hear my friend say “that makes my point” Jesus was not worshipped! Not so fast muta’h boy, recall when I said Jesus is the Lamb of God (John 1:29; 1:36). Jesus as the Lamb of God is worshipped along with His Father, Jesus receives universal worship from all of creation. The writer John the Apostle exhaust all of creation saying “every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea.”

Revelation 5:13-14

This is a very troubling passage for Abdools, because Christ is receiving the worship due only to God. Muslims once again show their ignorance of how context is key in rendering Greek words and knowing how they’re interpreted. Falling into the error of taking glosses in the wrong way proves they don’t understand how Greek is used. They make the mistake of taking a Greek word and equating it to English.

[13– 14] “A cascading praise effect erupts, like dominoes falling, where the singing of one group ignites the responsive singing of another. Once the heavenly chorus finishes its choral response to the song of the cherubim and elders, the voices of every creature in creation rise up in yet another antiphonal reply. John appeals again to the three-tiered mythical construct of the cosmos (see the comment on 5:3) to make certain that his hearers and readers understand the universal range of his vision. He hears voices from every realm of the created order, and he hears them singing a song of praise both to God on the throne and to the Lamb. They are both due the blessing and honor and glory and power mentioned in 5:12. And they are due them forever. The hymn of 4:11 has explained the reason why the cherubim and elders believed God was worthy of such accolades: God is worthy because God created all things. In the hymn of 5:9– 10 the cherubim and elders explained the three reasons why the Lamb is worthy. Creation is now apparently affirming those declarations with a responsive chord of acclamation. Fittingly, the cherubim and elders finish both worship scenes by sealing those affirmations with a confirmation of their own. The cherubim cry out “Amen” (see the comment on 3:14) while the elders acknowledge the truth of the hymns by falling before the throne in worship.”[10]

The Church of Philadelphia and Hypothetical Worship

There seems to be a theme, once again quranandBibleblog gets it wrong again! The fact that they think the word proskyneō is “ambiguous” is because they take the word by itself ignoring the surrounding context (emphasis ours):

… the fact that proskyneō doesn’t have to mean “worship” in the sense of religious “worship” given to God alone! It is a much broader word. As stated in my original article, the word is ambiguous enough as to avoid assuming that it only means religious “worship”. …

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

And he once again runs to 1 Chronicles 29:20 but we’ve already destroyed that argument, the text says they “worshipped the LORD” and “blessed king David” the Aramaic of the Peshitta. The Septuagint (LXX) is the Greek rendering of the Old Testament, let us not lose sight of the fact the OT was not written in Greek but in Hebrew/Aramaic. As for Revelation 5:13, the original language was written in Greek, therefore, the argument still stands.

As for Revelation 3:9 the Greek word (προσκυνήσωσιν) in the Textus Receptus against the word (προσκυνήσουσιν) in the Morphological GNT actually proves my case.

προσκυνήσωσιν vs. προσκυνήσουσιν: Both options yield the same translation, there’s no real difference between the two Greek words.

• SCR/BYZ: προσκυνήσωσιν the verb is part of the previous subjunctive purpose clause and
is translated as a future. This reading is dated around the 10th century.

• GNT: προσκυνήσουσιν is a future-tense form verb, that explains what Jesus Christ will compel them
to do. This reading is dated to the 4th century.

When Muslims perform their salah they “sujood” (prostration) in worshipping their false god, the two in Islam ALWAYS accompany each other.[11] This means when the angels prostrated to Adam they worshipped him according to Islamic prayer.

Nothing in Islam is spiritual because all Muslims have to pray at the same time, in the same way, face the same direction, speak in Arabic etc. This is NOT spiritual, Islam is ritualistic and thereby a legalistic religion as all false cults are.

In Christianity, we don’t practice legalism and can pray anytime and anywhere all that matters is that we’re praying from the heart. In the Bible people prayed in many ways face down, bowed down their heads, in bed, looking up to heaven etc.

Revelation 3:9 προσκυνήσωσιν is a subjunctive using a subordinate clause and the main verb determines the mood and expresses vividness. But notice that quranandBibleblog conveniently ignored the fact that I mentioned in the context of an unbeliever coming to an assembly of believers in 1 Corinthians and worships before the Christians.

1 Corinthians 14:23-25

Notice an unbeliever comes in and “he is convinced of all” and what happens next is he finally believes in God and the result is “the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on [his] face he will worship God”. This is happening in front of the Christians, this man is not worshipping the Christians, the same is true of Revelation 3:9 which the Abdools have no idea of because they lack reading the verses contextually.

Conclusion

Abdools are severely incompetent in understanding the context of verses, this is not surprising as their god Muhammad is the one who brings them confusion, they follow the “god of this world” also known as Satan [Q1:2], [2 Corinthians 4:3-4]. In love, we reach out to these people who are blinded by Satan so that they can see the glorious Light of the Lord Jesus Christ who offers all Abdools salvation. Muslims need to leave the darkness of Islam for theirs no hope in that false religion.

Christians are trapped in a false religion that teaches them to worship a human being as “God”.

Response to a Christian Apologist: Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

Here’s the hypocrisy, their god Allah is a man because he’s compared to a man called Dajjal. Allah and Dajjal look the same but the Muslims are told not to be confused because Allah has 2 eyes instead of just 1 like the Dajjal. You can read about it here in a previous article The Hadith says Dajjal is a man compared to Allah. All the talk about worshipping a human being is what the Muslims actually do.[12]

If Muslims don’t worship a man why according to the Hadith the Abdools could become confused between Allah and the Dajjal? It’s because the false Messiah Dajjal is being compared to Jesus the real Messiah (Isa the fake Jesus).

Christians believe God became a Man, not that man became God. Therefore, their god lacks the ability to become a man as he is powerless. How can anyone worship a god who needs a girlfriend to have a son, cannot become a man, can’t enter his creation and has to come down to the lowest heaven each night to hear the Muslim’s prayers? Allah is no more than a pagan idol that Abdools worship. We still love the Muslims and call them to the glorious Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.[13]

[5] “Addressing those who had begun to believe in him (v. 30), Jesus exhorts them to remain or stand fast (Greek: menein; cf. 15:10) in his word in order to be truly liberated, for their incipient faith still has a long way to go. The truth that they will then know will make them free (v. 32). This truth consists in knowing God through Jesus (1:14; 4:23-24; 14:6) and has nothing to do with human or conceptual knowledge. Taking his statement literally, they retort that they have never been enslaved, conveniently forgetting the sojourn in Egypt and their current occupation by the Romans.

[7] “Such is the scene when Jesus appears walking toward them on the sea (v. 25), sometime between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. (Greek: the fourth watch of the night, cf. NIV). As is typical in an epiphany (cf. 17:6-7; Isaiah 6:5; Luke 24:36-37), the first reaction of the disciples is one of fear or terror (v. 26). They assume that they are seeing an apparition. With Jesus’ words of assurance, however (v. 27), and with the quieting of the sea when Jesus enters the boat (v. 32), fear gives way to worship (v. 33; cf. 8:27). Once again we have a story full of allusions to OT texts and themes. Like the psalmist and others, the author depicts the sea and its turbulent waters as a place of chaos and destruction (cf. Genesis 1:2; Psalm 69:2; 74:13-14). There is a power greater than that of the sea, however, and Jesus clearly exhibits that power. When he appears walking on the sea, the picture is reminiscent of Yahweh walking on or through the sea at creation (Job 9:8; 38:16; Psalm 77:19) and making a route through the sea for Israel (Isaiah 43:16).” Gardner, R.

Response The Sinless Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Sinless

Abdools claim that Jesus is not sinless, by doing so deny their retarded book Qur’ān as their own book says Jesus is Holy. It’s wonderful Muhammadans are rejecting Qur’ān through their lack of understanding their own beliefs. We could choose to end the article here as it already refutes the entire article from quranandBibleblog titled: The Sinful Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Not “Sinless”

The 5 Abdools at quranandBibleblog are so desperate to go against Christianity they toss their own Qur’ān in the garbage proving Muhammad is a false prophet and Allah a false god.

In Isaiah 53:11 we have αναφερω for bearing sins, but αιρω properly means to lift up and carry away [John 2:16].[1] Muslims would agree that only God could take away sins, and I want to thank them for opening with this verse which refutes their entire article.

In Sunan Abi Dawud 3092 it says Allah removes the sins of Muslims for his illness. This alone proves Jesus is God, the power of God displayed in fullness as Christ has the power to take away sins.

When the Muta’h gang tries to prove that Christ was anything but sinless they undermine their own Qur’ān, the scribes also made this grave mistake. In Mark 2:1-12 the story of the healed paralytic says Christ came to Capernaum many people gathered to hear him preach the word to them. A group brought a person sick of the palsy, there were so many people it was hard for them to get close to Christ. But they persevered going onto the roof of the house and lowering the man into the house before the Lord Jesus.

When Jesus saw their faith He said unto the man sick of the palsy “Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.” Jesus directly forgave the man of his sins something only God can do. The scribes made a profound statement saying “Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?”

This is the same statement made by Muslims when they claim Christians commit shirk by worshipping Jesus Christ. Muslims believe Jesus performed miracles such as creating life when he made birds, healing the blind, raising the dead etc. Jesus in the Qur’ān can even tell you what you eat and knows what’s in your house.

Here’s the hypocrisy of Muslims, on the very article which we’re refuting today on quranandBibleblog a muta’h boy named mr.heathcliff made this comment, proving he doesn’t know his Qur’ān, he said:

how about the story about jesus touching the leper? jesus clearly breaks the law by touching leprous person and telling him to keep the healing a secret. Why would he tell the man to keep it a secret about the touching and healing? Did jesus realise that his act of touching broke the law? … Jesus knew up front that he was touching a leper. Law broke. Furthermore, he attempted to keep it a secret. Law broke. And the text goes on to tell us that Jesus was punished by being banished from the town. Why? Because he broke the Law.

The Sinful Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Not “Sinless”

He then quotes Leviticus 13:45-46 which speaks about the uncleanness of leprosy, but wait, if you read Qur’ān 3:49 it clearly says Jesus (Isa) healed the lepers. Therefore, Isa broke the law according to mr.heathcliff because it’s in the Qur’ān. It gets worse! It was by Allah’s leave or permission! So Allah broke his own law by mr.heathcliff’s standard.

Let’s educate the Abdools, according to Qur’ān Allah gave Jesus the power to create which makes Jesus another Creator besides Allah by Allah’s leave [23:12-14]. This means in the Qur’ān Jesus is God having the same power as Allah. If anyone touched a person who had leprosy they would be infected with leprosy as well. Jesus Christ as God, leprosy has no effect on Him, in-fact anyone who touched Jesus their disease of leprosy was immediately be cured. Only God has this power.

Ibn Kathir agrees that Isa created life by making birds from clay as Allah gave him the power to do so making him God. Kathir also says Isa healed lepers “a known disease.”

Thank you mr.heathcliff for proving Jesus is God, you’re helping more people to leave Islam.

Destroying private property and committing animal abuse? – Matthew 8:28–34 (Q71:25, Sahih al-Bukhari 5590)

This is an interesting story. On the one hand, Jesus’ power as an exorcist was displayed when he forced a group of demons, called “Legion” (Mark 5:9), to stop oppressing two men. On the other hand, he then let the demons possess a herd of pigs, without asking for permission from the owner. As a result, the pigs were possessed and drowned in a lake. Thus, the Biblical Jesus committed two sins: the destruction of property and cruelty to animals. There is no indication that Jesus compensated the owner of the pigs (he must have been a Gentile), a violation of Exodus 22, which requires compensation for the theft and deaths of animals, though of course, the law did not include pigs since Jews could not own such animals.

The Sinful Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Not “Sinless”

In their feeble attempt at discrediting the Bible, they chose another passage proving Christ Jesus is the Almighty God. Jesus heals two demon-possessed men.

Only God can do what Jesus Christ did, it was the finger of God which-casted out those demons [Luke 11:20]. Notice Abdools are more concerned with material possessions instead of caring for humanity placing humans on the same level as animals. That’s no surprise as according to Muslims Allah said Jews were made into monkeys [al-Baqarah 2:65-66].

According to Sahih al-Bukhari 5590 Allah will destroy them letting mountains fall on them, and transform the rest of the people into monkeys and pigs, so why are Muslims so worried about the pigs mentioned in Matthew 8? According to Islam pigs are unclean animals, way are the Muslims getting their panties in a bunch? Looks like pork is halal for the sons of muta’h.

Jesus Christ actually helped the man to not be possessed, while Allah sinned turning Jews into apes the Arabic text reads (فَقُلْنَا لَهُمْ كُونُوا۟ قِرَدَةً خَـٰسِـِٔينَ). Allah allowed his prophet Muhammad to be bewitched and possessed as Muhammad said he has a jinn which commands him to do good, this contradicts the Qur’ān in Surah Al-Falaq which is supposed to be a protection against magic (those who practise secret arts). Yet Muhammad was bewitched and had a jinn and poisoned which proves Allah is powerless and cannot protect Muhammad.

The potatoes said in referring to Jesus “the destruction of property and cruelty to animals”, was this the case?

“Strangely enough Jesus granted their request. But why should the Sovereign Lord accede to the request of demons? To understand His action, we must remember two facts. First, demons shun the disembodied state; they want to indwell human beings, or, if that is not possible, animals or other creatures. Secondly, the purpose of demons is without exception to destroy. If Jesus had simply cast them out of the maniacs, the demons would have been a menace to the other people of the area. By allowing them to go into the swine, He prevented their entering men and women and confined their destructive power to animals. It was not yet time for their final destruction by the Lord. As soon as the transfer took place, the swine ran violently down the steep place into the sea and drowned. This incident demonstrates that the ultimate aim of demons is to destroy, and underlines the terrifying possibility that two men can be indwelt by the number of demons it takes to destroy two thousand swine (Mark 5:13)”[2]

William MacDonald Believer’s Bible Commentary Second Edition (Thomas Nelson, 2016), p. 1147

Jesus Christ protected the people from the demons, not only are humans above animals we’re told in the book of Genesis that man was given the rule over all animals, to do whatever he deemed necessary “Dress it and to keep it.”

If the muta’h boys are claiming that “the destruction of property and cruelty to animals”, is sin in their eyes then what about their god Allah? Was he responsible of “the destruction of property and cruelty to animals” in the flood [Sura 71]?

Allah destroyed property and animals all over the world which means according to quranandBibleblog Allah destroyed private property and committed animal abuse, those are their words. There’s no indication Allah compensated the people for their loss yet Muslims try to blame Jesus Christ for helping those who were possessed by demons, Allah was not helping anyone.

Ibn Kathir in his Tafsir explains that Allah drowned the people and made them enter the fire because drowning them was not enough for Allah. What a bunch of hypocrites!

Kathir says Allah destroyed them from the face of the earth, Allah even destroyed Nuh’s (Noah) biological son, what kind of sadistic pagan god do Muslims worship?

Disrespecting his mother? – John 2:1–5 (Muhammad called his pagan parent najas نجس)

Muslims are choosing verses which prove, Jesus is God, in the twisted corrupt mind of Muhammadans they believe Jesus disrespected his mother, that means they contradicted the Qur’ān which says Jesus is a righteous son [19:19]. On the contrary, Mary in the Bible had faith knowing Christ was fully capable of performing miracles. Asking Him to turn the water into wine, did Jesus refuse and not perform the miracle? No! In fact, He honoured His mother and did as she asked.

The tomato boys think because Jesus said “Woman, what have I to do with thee?” means He somehow “disrespected” her, they are showing their amazing ignorance. First, Christ came with one purpose that was to make certain He accomplished what He was sent to do, and that was to save sinners. This was the purpose for Him to do things in secret, not because He was hiding something shameful. Because if all the people would have taken Him and made Him King at that time “they would not have crucified the Lord of glory”[3]

Second, Christ called His mother-woman, as He is her Creator and is addressing her as such.[4] Mary understood this and uttered these wonderful words “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” Something Muslims don’t do as Islam is an antichrist religion from Satan himself.

Unfortunately for Muhammadan the parents of their prophet are polythiest, and called najas (نجس) in Qur’ān. The word najas (نجس) translated means impure, unclean, defiled, filthy, abomination, impurity etc. If Muslims don’t believe me all they need to do is open an Arabic dictionary and see for themselves.

Here’s the hard facts, Muhammad (who’s real name is Qathem) according to Muslims was born in Mecca in the year of the Elephant (570 AD). He proclaimed his mission at the age of 40 (610 AD), therefore, when he was 40 years old, it’s not possible his parents were Muslims because they were already dead.

Additionally, Muhammad didn’t know who his father was as he died 4 years BEFORE Muhammad’s birth. The Islamic story is that Muhammad’s father was Abdullah. The question is how can Muhammad’s birth come 4 years after his father’s death? The answer is that in reality he was not his father, in-fact his mother slept with groups of men. Before in Islam there was something called Zawaj Al Rahe’t which really means group “marriage” but really is sex.

The woman in this case the prophet’s mother would sleep with multiple men 5, 7, 12 or more it makes no difference. This sex practice was accepted by the Arab society, the mother after given birth then choose the father from among those men she slept with. The real name of his (Muhammad’s) father was Abd Allat, meaning slave of Allat (1 of the 3 daughters of Allah the pagan deity found in Surah An-Najm 53:19-21).

Muhammad’s mother had many children, she didn’t only bear Muhammad. If she was only with Muhammad’s father how did she give birth to so many children? In Imam Al Suoty the Al Kasa’s Al-Kubra V1 p. 132-135 his mother said: I was pregnant with him, and it was the easiest one of my pregnancies.

Sahih Muslim 203 someone asked Muhammad where is his father? And Muhammad replied that his father is in Fire (hell), Muhammad concludes his statement and says “my father and your father are in the Fire.” Muhammad admits his own father is in hell as his parents were unbelievers. Talk about disprespecting ones parents!

Sunan Ibn Majah 1572 Muhammad was weeping as he visited his mother’s grave, he then makes mention that he asked Allah permission to seek forgiveness for his mother, and Allah denies Muhammad.

It is not permissible to offer the funeral prayer for a polytheist, a disbeliever or a hypocrite who is guilty of major hypocrisy. If a person is aware of somebody’s hypocrisy or disbelief, it is prohibited for him to offer the funeral prayer for him or to pray for forgiveness for him after his death, regardless of whether or not he was a relative of his.

(Source: https://islamqa.info/en/answers/246744/it-is-not-permissible-to-offer-the-funeral-prayer-for-a-mushrik-who-committed-major-shirk)

Not only was his parents pagans considered filthy by Allah, Muhammad contradicts himself as his intercession for his mother was not accepted by Allah. Yet the prophet says that he’s “pre-eminent” and the “first intercessor and the first whose intercession will be accepted by Allah” and it was not accepted.

What kind of god doesn’t want a person to be saved? Allah has no love, therefore, he cannot be god, he definitely is not “the most merciful” how is that showing mercy if he doesn’t want all to be saved?

Muhammad was unable to do anything, as he prayed for his dead mother she was rotting in the grave, his prayer fell on deaf ears. But Jesus Christ was able to raise the dead [John 11:1, 11, 14, 43, 44] He was even able to raise Himself from the dead [John 2:19-22], and do many more miracles but Muhammad has no miracles.

According to al-Jalalayn pagans will not escape Allah and he will punish and humiliate them and sending them to the fire. Don’t forget Muhammad said his father is in the fire in Sahih Muslim 203 that’s because his parents died as pagans because they were worshipping idols.

According to [9:3] Allah is unforgiving and has no grace, instead he’s a sadistic god who gets off on punishing and dishing out painful torment to disbelievers, in reality this is Muhammad talking as Allah doesn’t exist. To contrast this verse the true God Yahweh says He’s “not willing that any should perish” [2 Peter 3:9], the problem is Muslims don’t want to be saved by Jesus, therefore, they have no hope of salvation.

Muhammad’s parents never became Muslim, they died as idolaters according to Allah, Muhammad and thier sunni donkey scholars al-Jalalayn unless they want to lie and say al-Jalalayn is a Christian now.

Lying to his brothers – John 7:1–10 Muhammad lying to his wives (Jami ‘at-Tirmidhi 1939)

The context of John 7:8 is that Jesus’ brothers don’t believe in Him, Jesus being God is fully aware of this. His brothers command that He go to the festival and openly saying “For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.”

His brothers wanted Him to make a huge spectacle of Himself, but since they didn’t believe in Him their request was hypocritical as they were trying to make it seem as though they did believe. Besides it would also be prideful to blatantly make a show, this is what Satan wanted Jesus to do [Matthew 4:1–11].

Abdools in their quest to show that they “love Jesus” openly try to besmirch the name of Christ because they are following an antichrist. In the OT God would not go up with those who are committing sin. The LORD told Moses “I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people” [Exodus 33:1-3]. The same is true of Christ, since Jesus is God we can expect the same reaction to those who are not walking orderly.

In examining the text of this passage one might ask did Jesus lie as our Muslim friends contend. Greek scholar Bill Mounce weighs in giving insight to this passage stating “The more complete answer is supplied by the condition, “my time has not yet fully come.””[5]

Let us go with the abdools argument. If the word yet was not originally found in the mss and was inserted by a scribe that’s still not an issue and doesn’t make Jesus a liar, it’s what’s meant in the message John was conveying. It can also be elliptical language[6] used in John 7:8 the omission of certain words can still provide the necessary context to understand what’s going on in the passage.

His brothers say, to Jesus, you should go and make a public spectacle of yourself in front of your disciples and show everyone who you really are. 

John mentions, they didn’t really believe in Him. Jesus says, No, it isn’t time for me to do that, therefore, under those conditions, I’m not going. Jesus wanted to go with His identity concealed, and He couldn’t go with them as they intended to make a big exhibition of Himself. And that’s the reason why He didn’t go with them. But did so afterwards in secretly. Lastly, in v9 it says He stood in Galilee and we’re not told how much time elapsed, one thing we can understand He didn’t go immediately afterwards as the context shows.

Let’s see what the prophet of Islam taught, Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1939 Muhammad says it’s halal to lie in 3 cases (1) to your wife, (2) in war and (3) to bring peace between the people.

(Source: https://sunnah.com/tirmidhi:1939)

How evil is this?! Muslim men are taught to lie to their wives according to their prophet.[7] Additionally, how can lies bring peace at all, that means everything taught in Islam is a farce. If Muhammad teaches you can lie this makes sense because he obviously lied about everything creating his cult religion Islam.

Committing petty theft – Matthew 21:1–7 Muhammad stoled Women’s Underwear (Sunan Abi Dawud 3971)

(Source: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+21%3A1%E2%80%937&version=KJV)

Besides the absurdity of having Jesus sit on two donkeys (that would be very uncomfortable), the Gospel of Matthew indicates that Jesus sent his disciples to bring two donkeys from a village to him. These donkeys belonged to someone since they were tied. Jesus did not tell his disciples to find the owner and ask for his permission before taking the donkeys, but he did tell them what to say if someone saw them. They were to simply say “The Lord needs them”! Imagine if someone tried stealing your property and you caught them in the act, and their excuse was “God needs them”. Who would buy that excuse without any evidence?

The Sinful Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Not “Sinless”

Notice how the black stone worshippers assume Jesus didn’t ask permission from the owner. If you read the text it says “any man” that includes the owner also, therefore, there’s no reason to assume Christ didn’t inform the owner. We’ll prove how easy it is to bust the abdools, in there desperation to try to slander (slander is from Satan) Christ and by doing so embarrass themselves.

In the Synoptic Gospels, we’re aware that the writers give an account of the same event, some highlight specific details more than another writer. The answer is found in the Gospel of Luke 19.

Luke 19:33 tells us that the owners asked them what are they doing and the disciples told them “The Lord hath need of him.” in the next verse. As mentioned we get the Abdools busted showing how silly their arguments are. This proves Jesus didn’t “commit petty theft” as quranandBibleblog mentioned. I wonder if they will admit they’re wrong and apologise for lying about Jesus Christ?

The one who committed petty theft is their prophet stealing women’s red underwear found in Sunan Abi Dawud 3971. What exactly did Muhammad want with women’s underwear?

(Sorce: https://sunnah.com/abudawud:3971)

The fact that Muhammad was a cross-dresser is very concerning, there’s proof of him being a homosexual[8] you can read about that here Was Muhammad a bisexual pervert? from their Islamic sources. Let’s not forget Muhammad plagiarized a multitude of passages from the Bible, Jesus Christ came and established Christianity 600 years before Islam. We’ll take a look at some of those passages Muhammad committed petty theft in a future article, Lord willing.

Conclusion

There you go another Abdool spanking, it’s getting embarrassing for the muta’h boys at quranandBibleblog. When it comes to comparing the Lord Jesus against the false prophet Muhammad, Christ will always be superior by leaps and bounds above Muhammad. Even the Islamic teaching is that Jesus is alive with Allah, while Muhammad rots in the grave.

We would like to thank our Muslim friends at quranandBibleblog for once again exposing Muhammad for being a destructive individual, disrespectful, liar and petty theft. Of course, we already knew he was all of this and more. We invite all Muslims to come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour, the Lord Jesus is the only One who can save you and desires to do so because He loves you.

Abandon the false pagan religion of Islam as there is no hope for you in it, only Jesus Christ can give you everlasting life. May we pray for these lost souls that they come to faith in Christ for salvation.

[5] This is certainly what gave rise to the alternate reading, “I am not yet (οὔπω replacing οὐκ) going up.” The external evidence for οὔπω is actually quite strong (P66, 75, Vaticanus, but not Sinaiticus), but internally it is inconceivable that a scribe would have changed οὔπω to οὐκ and introduce the issue of Jesus’ honesty. οὐκ is preferred in all major translations (except the KJV following the MT). Notice also that the explicitly continuous translation “I am not going up” (ἀναβαίνω) favored by most translations at least paves the way for the reader to hear “not yet.” The more complete answer is supplied by the condition, “my time has not yet fully come.” As Carson argues, Jesus’ “itinerary is regulated by the Father” and hence the time is not yet right. But he would go when instructed to do so by his Father. – Bill Mounce (2022, November 29). Did Jesus Lie?

The Sinful Prophet: The Qur’ānic Muhammad Was Not “Sinless” but a Madman

At Whatsoeverthingsaretrue we love the Muslims, and pray for their salvation, may their eyes be opened to the truth. They need Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins just like everyone else. They will worship Him as God and their Lord and Saviour as many Muslims are leaving Islam and now following Jesus Christ.

Forwarning this won’t be the usual article, it’ll be disturbing and gross as we look into the Life of prophet Muhammad the sinner. To those in Islam who blaspheme Christ, we forgive you as our Lord commands us to do [Matthew 12:31-32] even the most hateful person can be forgiven.[1]

As a Christian, my Lord tells me to love, forgive and pray for my enemies [Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:27, 35] those who would blaspheme against Christ.[2] It’s not my place to condemn anyone, that judgment is for God alone to make. But that doesn’t mean I’ll refrain from speaking the truth for I must speak the truth, with that said let’s get into it!

Muhammad The Sinner According to Qur’ān

Muslims are taught that Muhammad is perfect, the greatest of the prophets and an example for all mankind. Sadly, worship of their prophet has led to enormous lies compelling Muslims to assert that Muhammad was sinless. In truth, Muhammad sinned night and day. From having sex with a 9-year-old girl, breaking his oath to his wives, torturing a man for money etc. We’re going to look at their trusted sources, Qur’ān and Hadith proving Muhammad was a sinner.

In Surah Muhammad 47:19 Allah orders Muhammad to “ask forgiveness for your sin” (ٱسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنۢبِكَ) and tells him that he would “forgive you your sins of the past and the future” [47:19; 48:2]

The following Arabic words from 47:19 (ٱسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنۢبِكَ) if entered into Google Translate, will render what’s shown below.

Abdools can’t reject this fact it’s from Qur’ān saying Muhammad was a sinner. If not he wouldn’t have anything to ask forgiveness for, a challenge to Muslims to show in their Qur’ān Jesus Christ asking for forgiveness. In Qur’ān Christ is a Pure Boy [19:19], therefore, they’re denying Qur’ān and calling Allah and Muhammad liars if they claim Jesus is anything but sinless. Here’s one such denial from quranandbibleblog: The Sinful Savior: Why the Biblical Jesus Was Not “Sinless” They deny their own prophet proving Islam is a false religion, we must thank them for all thier help.

Allah tells Muhammad “that Allah may forgive thee of thy sin past and that to come.” If this is Allah talking who’s Allah talking to saying “that Allah may forgive thee.” He should say “that I may forgive” so who is Allah referring to another Allah? Secondly, Allah doesn’t know if Muhammad’s sins will be forgiven, why is Allah saying “that Allah may forgive” is he not sure? To sin means to miss the mark, in Muhammad’s case he didn’t even know where the mark was.

The Arabic in [48:2] is provided (لِّيَغْفِرَ لَكَ ٱللَّهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِن ذَنۢبِكَ), I’d love to hear the excuse for these ayats. Bring any ayat from Qur’ān saying Muhammad never sinned if they can? That’s right they cannot because it doesn’t exist.

In Sahih Al-Bukhari 6307, Muhammad begs Allah, who in their right mind can say this man Muhammad is not sinful? “turn to him in repentance for more than seventy times a day” he sins so much that he’s repenting 70 times a day, he spent the entire day repenting because that’s how much he’s been sinning.

In Sunan Ibn Majah 3815 mirrors the hadith above, of course, Abdools will deny it till the cows come home, all they can do is try to run away from the madness of Muhammad.

Muhammad the dirty Prophet

It might come as a surprise to hear that their prophet took baths with dead dogs and women’s blood from periods. Here’s the Hadith from their own books saying Muhammad was swimming in water which had faeces, I couldn’t imagine how bad he smelled! Merriam Webster definition excrement: waste matter discharged from the body especially: FECES[3]

According to Sunan Abi Dawud 67, Muhammad would perform wudu (ablution) in filthy water which had dead dogs, women’s blood from their monthly period and excrement. Yet Muslims claim he’s holy?[4]

Imagine Muhammad washing his face, rinsing his mouth and nose with faeces. Washing his arms, wiping his head, ears and feet up to the ankles. The well of Buda’ah would make him dirtier unpure/unholy. In Islam, if a woman having her period cannot enter the Masjid and she must wait until she’s pure?[5]

Muhammad the hypocrite doesn’t follow Qur’ān, he’s bathing in women’s period blood before praying. In Islam, the man is to stay away from women during their menses and here’s Muhammad swimming in it before praying. This means Muhammad was constantly in a filthy state and unfit to pray by Islamic standards.

The following is a plethora of Hadith’s which speak of Muhammad being covered in semen. Don’t lose sight that these are Sahih, therefore, they are accepted by their scholars and not daif (weak) even though all of Islam is daif.

Aisha scraped semen off of Muhammad’s clothes with her fingernails poor Aisha not only was she the victim of child paedophilia but she also had to scrape semen off Muhammad Sahih al-Bukhari 232.

“I (‘Aisha) used to scrape it (the semen) off his garment with my nails while it was dry.” Bulugh al-Maram 28. Muhammad must have been cheap and only owned one garment.

How repulsive where’s all this semen coming from? Muhammad must have had a medical problem. “I remember when I found it (semen) on the garment of the Messenger of Allah and I scratched it off.” Sunan Ibn Majah 539.

“Aishah said: “I often scraped it (semen) from the garment of the Messenger of Allah with my hand.” Sunan Ibn Majah 537.

“Aisha: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet (ﷺ) and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).” Sahih al-Bukhari 229.

The Paedophile Prophet

What follows is an insane amount of citations from the Hadith and Tafsir confirming Muhammad’s prepubescent sexual intercourse with Aisha and Allah’s approval of it for all believing men as well. We’ll define puberty first from the Islamic sources, and then address the latter. There we will also address the “women” in [65:4] which some Muslims claim is only used for adult women.

“Attaining of puberty” and “start of menses” are used synonymously (باب بُلُوغِ الصِّبْيَانِ وَشَهَادَتِهِمْ) the Arabic translated is “Children’s Puberty and Their Testimony” (Sahih al-Bukhari 3:52 Chapter 18)[6]

“Al-Mughira” (evidently a boy) attained puberty at the age of 12 in Bukhari 3:52 chapter 18. This is page 486 of vol 3 of Khan’s translation. The chapter introductions are usually left untranslated online. Image of the relevant part of the page is included here for your perusal and refutes the “early puberty” theory that Muslims claim.

Sahih al-Bukhari 5133 “the Prophet (ﷺ) married her [Aisha] when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old….”

The chapter heading for the hadith just cited is telling. It comes from Khan’s translation, volume 7, page 57, and is included here for your convenience.

Sahih Muslim 1422 c “…married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 6130 “(The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.)”

Sunan Abi Dawud 4931 I used to play with dolls. Sometimes the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) entered upon me when the girls were with me. When he came in, they went out, and when he went out, they came in.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2637 Aisha is a young girl who sleeps a lot.

Sunan Abi Dawud 4935 Aisha was playing on a swing set when they came to get her, this Hadith is Sahih in chain.

Sahih a;-Bukhari 5081 Abu Bakr apparently objects to the young marriage: “The Prophet (ﷺ) asked Abu Bakr for `Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “But I am your brother.”…”

Sahih al-Bukhari 5236 “… So you may deduce from this event how a little girl (who has not reached the age of puberty) who is eager to enjoy amusement should be treated in this respect.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 5190 “… So you may estimate of what age a little girl may listen to amusement.” Note: “Aisha was fifteen years old then.”

[65:4] “And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet…” 

[33:49] “O believers! If you marry believing women and divorce them before the marriage is consummated, you are not required to observe the Iddah (waiting period)…”

Tafsir Ibn Kathir “This is a command on which the scholars are agreed, that if a woman is divorced before the marriage is consummated, she does not have to observe the `Iddah (prescribed period for divorce) and she may go and get married immediately to whomever she wishes.”

Allah the Exalted clarifies the waiting period of the woman in menopause. And that is the one whose menstruation has stopped due to her older age. Her `Iddah is three months instead of the three monthly cycles for those who menstruate, which is based upon the Ayah in (Surat) Al-Baqarah. ﴿see 2:228﴾ The same for the young, who have not reached the years of menstruation. Their `Iddah is three months like those in menopause… Tafsir Ibn Kathir on 65:4

Maududi “Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for the girls who have not yet menstruated, clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl in marriage at this age but it is also permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her. Now, obviously, no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Qur’ān has held as permissible.”

Tafsir al-Jalalayn “those who have not yet menstruated because of their young age their period shall also be three months”

Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi “He said: ‘Those who are too young [such that they have not started menstruating yet]…And so this verse (And for such of your women as despair of menstruation…) was revealed.”

Tafsir Ibn ‘Abbas “O Messenger of Allah! What about the waiting period of those who do not have menstruation because they are too young?”

Homosexual acts he was sexually intimate with his Uncle

[93:6] Did He not find you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) an orphan and gave you a refuge?

In regards to Surah Ad-Dhuha 93:6 Imam Fakhr Al Din Al Razi in his tafseer says The story goes that when Muhammad’s mother was pregnant his father Abdul Allah ben Abdul Motalib died. After he was born he was passed on to his grandfather Abdul Motalib at the age of 2 years old. When he reached the age of 8 years old his grandfather died and Muhammad but before Abdul Motlib death he asked Muhammad’s uncle to take care of him.

Muhammad’s uncle (Abu Talib) was intimate with him telling Muhammad “One night I ordered him to take off his clothing and sleep with me, so I saw resentment on his face and but hate to show disobedience” Muhammad responds “Oh uncle put your face away until I take off my clothing as no one should see my naked body” his uncle thinks “And then I found that he is too soft and smells so good as if he is soaked in cents, so I kept trying hard to stare at his body.”

Here’s the same account in Arabic with Google Translation, feel free to copy the text and translate it yourself.

وَلَا أَأْتَمِنُ عَلَيْهِ أَحَدًا حَتَّى أَنِّي كُنْتُ أُنَوِّمُهُ فِي فِرَاشِي ، فَأَمَرْتُهُ لَيْلَةً أَنْ يَخْلَعَ ثِيَابَهُ وَيَنَامَ مَعِي ، فَرَأَيْتُ الْكَرَاهَةَ فِي وَجْهِهِ لَكِنَّهُ كَرِهَ أَنْ يُخَالِفَنِي،

Muhammad was raped by his cousin

Muhammad claimed that he was raped by his cousin Abu Soffian Ibn Harith ben Abdel Motalib.

Al Sirah Al Nabawiah Sirah Ibn Hisham

Reported by Ibn Ishaq: And it was that Abu Soffian Ibn Harith ben Abdel Motalib and Abdul Allah ben Obay Omiah Ben Al Moghirah had met prophet of Allah (pbuh) at a place called “Naik Al Okab” between Mecca and Madina, so they wanted to enter in his presence, so Om Sallamah talked to him about that saying: Oh prophet of Allah, it is your cousin from your uncle and your other cousin from you aunt and your kinsman. So he (Muhammad) answered: “I have nothing to do with those 2, in regards to my cousin he raped me, and in regards to the other cousin he said what he said to me in Mecca”. So when it came to them what the prophet said and with Abu Soffian was one of his own siblings, abu Soffian responded back saying: “Swearing by Allah he must allow me in or I will take this kid with my hand and wonder in the land until we die of hunger and thirst!”, so when Rassoul Allah heard that he softened to them and accept them in and then they entered and accepted Islam

Sexual Encounters with the Sahaba!

In Al Sunan Al Kobra Reported by Abu Ali Al Ruzbarri, from Abu Bakr ben Dassah, Thana Abu Dawood, Thana Obed Allah ben Moaz, Thana Abi, Thana Kahmas, from Siar ben Nasour – reported: A man from Banni Fazazah from a woman called Bahisah about her father said: My father (Abu Bahisah) took permission from the prophet (pbuh) and he entered between him and his shirt and began to kiss him and embrace him,

Reference for the previous 3 segments provided below where you can read all of the details, plus additional information such as Muhammad getting his chest rubbed and kissed from Abu Bahisah, and fantasizing about other men, threesomes with his Sahaba and wives. Naked people riding Muhammad like a donkey[7]

Muhammad The Liar

Muhammad taught it’s halal to lie, what kind of prophet teaches lying is ok? Only a satanic prophet. This man says it’s ok to lie to your wife, how evil is this?! The Bible says that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire [Revelation 21:8]. Muhammad is definitely in hell and will be tossed into the Lake of Fire by Jesus Christ.

Muhammad The Adulterer

The Qur’ān says this marriage in [33:36] was arranged by Muhammad and “Allah” (truth is Allah doesn’t exist it’s Muhammad making things up) making the decision to take Zayd and Zaynab. Muhammad took his own adopted son’s wife from him causing a divorce.

Conclusion

While we’ll commence the article here, as there’s just too much dirt on Muhammad, like a long laundry list. But not to worry we’ll keep on posting about the wonderful life of Muhammad because the muta’h boys love it. Just to summarise what we’ve learned today, (1) Muhammad was a sinner who begged Allah to forgive him, (2) he was a dirty man bathing in excrement, dead dogs and period water, (3) Aisha scraped semen off the prophet, (4) he was a child paedophile, (5) a raging homosexual, (6) and a liar to boot, (7) and last but not least an adulterer. The Dawahgandist have no chance defending their sinful prophet, we’re having fun here making BBQ Muhammad. How Muslims are so lost to the point that they worship this man is beyond me, but it shows the low moral standards in Islam. If Muhammad is the best example for mankind then the world is in grave trouble.

May the eyes, hearts and minds of Muslims wake up from following this evil cult and come into the wonderful grace of the Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life.

Flood of Noah Sura 71 (Nuh)

First, we’d like to say that we love Muslims we don’t hate them, we want them to go to heaven. We do not curse them as they do us every day in their prayers, but we pray for them to come to know the love of Jesus Christ who wants a loving relationship with them.

How many times have we heard Muslims make statements such as “This God, according to the Bible, is directly responsible for many mass-murders, rapes, pillage, plunder, slavery, child abuse and killing, not to mention the killing of unborn children.”

Muslims are completely ignorant of the fact that their Qur’ān affirms the Bible. For instance, in the Bible, we have the account of Noah found in the book of Genesis 7 (Torah), where do they get this story from if not from the Bible they reject. If you’d like to read the story in its entirety you can read chapter 7 here.

Since Allah claims to be the same God of the Bible, then are Muslims saying that Allah is responsible for mass murders, rapes, pillage, plunder, slavery, child abuse and killing, not to mention the killing of unborn children? According to the Qur’ān Allah sent the flood, Allah says he was the one who sent the Torah and Gospel.[1]

In the Qur’ān, it’s explained that Allah sent the flood in Surah Nuh copying the story from the book of Genesis. Muslims believe Allah is the same God spoken of in the Bible, this means Muslims are calling Allah a mass murderer and blame him for killing unborn children according to their own words. You can read Surah Nuh in its entirety here

In [71.1] Allah says that he sent Nuh (Noah) to “Warn your people before there come upon them a painful chastisement.” Allah seems to be threatening people for doing what he wants them to do, I realise this doesn’t make sense now but read further as I’ll explain how illogical Islam is.

Ibn Abbas in his Tafsir says: “And from his narration on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that he said regarding the interpretation of Allah’s saying (Lo! We sent): ‘(Lo! We sent Noah unto his people (saying): Warn your people) from Allah’s wrath and punishment (ere the painful doom come unto them) in the form of drowning.”[2]

Christians don’t deny the violence of the Old Testament but without understanding the context of those verses one might wonder why did God bring a flood to wipe out those upon the Earth?

The answer is the God of the Bible was protecting the Earth, in Genesis 6:5 we read of the “wickedness of man” and that mankind was doing “evil continually.”[3] Verse 11 also says “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.” Men in their sinfulness were living a life of corruption, this grieved God “it grieved him at his heart”, this speaks to the tenderness and compassionate God Christians worship and serve.[4] The major difference between Yahweh and Allah is in the Bible God justly punishes sin, as these people were doing horrendous evil in His sight.

But Allah according to the Islamic sources causes people to sin and then he wants to punish them for doing what he was already determined/decreed for them to do.

The following quote is from islamqa.info in answering this Muslim’s question “Was doing any sin previously written and predetermined by Allah? If the answer is yes, then why does Allah destine for some to commit sins, and for others to do good deeds, while we all are humans?.”

Islamqa.info responded: “That Allaah, may He be exalted, is the Creator of all things, and nothing happens in the universe except by His will. He knows what is to come and He decreed all of that and wrote it in a Book fifty thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, as is stated in a saheeh report from our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). He is Just and does not wrong anyone in the slightest, because He is independent of His creation and has no need of them. He is Kind and Gracious to them constantly, so how could He wrong them? … Man has free will and choice by means of which he does some things and refrains from others, and he believes or disbelieves, and he obeys or disobeys, for which he will be brought to account and rewarded or punished, although Allaah knows what he will do, what he will choose and what his ultimate destiny will be. But Allaah does not compel him to do evil, or to choose kufr, rather He clearly shows him the path and He has sent Messengers and revealed Books, and shown him the right way. Whoever goes astray does so to his own loss,.” [5]

Talk about a contradiction Muslims believe that Allah writes the destinies of all of mankind BEFORE creation. That nothing happens in this universe except by Allah’s will, meaning that Allah’s will is for man to do evil to choose to be a disbeliever. Then islamqa.info says Allah shows them the path sending messengers and books to show them the right way. And here’s the kicker “Whoever goes astray does so to his own loss”. The problem is in Qur’ān 35:8 it says that Allah leads people astray.

Ibn-Kathir in regards to this ayat says “(Verily, Allah sends astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills.) means according to His decree. (So destroy not yourself in sorrow for them.) means, do not grieve about that, for Allah is Wise in His decree and He leaves astray whomsoever He leaves astray, and He guides whomsoever He guides, and in doing so He has perfect knowledge and wisdom.”[6]

So where’s the “free will” islamqa.info was speaking of?! Another example, according to the Sunnah of Muhammad there’s a Sahih Hadith that says Allah made Adam sin which caused them to be kicked out of Jannah. Doesn’t sound like Adam had free will either.

This Hadith from Sunan Abi Dawud is graded Sahih, Muslims can try to deny it but they will only be denying their own books. We’re told that Moses blamed Adam for getting kicked out of Paradise. Adam responds telling him that Allah decreed it to happen so Moses cannot blame Adam.[7] The god of Islam wants people to sin, this will be discussed further in an upcoming article.

The True God of the Bible hates sin and gives people free will to choose if they will live a life that is pleasing to God or will they live a life of sin, Yahweh doesn’t make them sin.

It’s pretty understandable that the God of the Bible and the god of the Qur’ān are not the same. Muslims actually worship Muhammad unknowingly as he fabricated Qur’ān. Getting back to the story of Noah in the Qur’ān, Allah caused the people to sin according to the Hadith above then he bullies them.

How can Allah drown the people in [71.25] “because of their wrongs” this is a false statement in the Qur’ān how can it be the people’s “wrongs” if once again Allah determined for them to do wrong? And that’s not all he also puts them in the fire the funny thing about this ayat is Allah does all of this to them and then says “so they did not find any helpers besides Allah”.

Allah will help them from himself?! How silly does a person have to be to believe in this garbage religion?

In [71.26] we see the lack of grace from the Islamic version of Noah as he says “Leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers.” Nuh is asking for the destruction of all the people on earth. In contrast, Noah in the Bible never wished for the death of the people.

Here we go again [71.27] says the disbelievers will lead astray, “for surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants, and will not beget any but immoral, ungrateful children”. In reality, it’s Allah who’s leading people astray according to Surah 35:8, this is a huge contradiction!

About this ayat Ibn-Kathir says: “(If You leave them, they will mislead Your servants,) meaning, `if You leave a single one of them they will lead your servants astray.’ This refers to those whom He will create after them. (and they will beget none but wicked disbelievers.) meaning, wicked in their deeds and disbelieving in their hearts. He (Nuh) said this due to what he knew about them since he remained among them for nine hundred and fifty years.”[8]

Who’s doing the leading astray here, let’s not forget what islamqa.info said: “nothing happens in the universe except by His will”. Therefore, Allah is causing people to go astray then he punishes them for doing what he decreed they would do.

Lastly in [71.28], Nuh is asking Allah to destroy polytheists and disbelievers “and do not increase the unjust in aught but destruction!” Muslims are believing in a sadistic god who leads people astray and then destroys them for doing exactly what Allah wants them to do.

Conclusion

It’s abundantly obvious Allah is unjust he causes people to sin and then destroys them for obeying his will as there’s no free will in Islam. In stark contrast, Yahweh allows for men to have free will and is completely just in punishing them because he didn’t force them to do evil acts. Muslims leave this cult, Muhammad is nothing but a madman who stoled and fabricated stories. God came in the form of a Man, Jesus Christ, born of a virgin and He took the punishment for your sins on the cross. He was crucified, buried and after 3 days He rose from the dead proving who He is, God in the flesh.

Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

Muslims in their weak attempt at discrediting the Bible stoop very low unknowingly calling their own prophet a liar. Their prophet Muhammad said he believes in the Torah saying “I believe in thee and in him who revealed thee.”[1]

Muslims are willingly denying their prophet who believes in the Bible (Injil) revealed from Allah, which is “guidance and light”. The Qur’ān says it confirms the scriptures which came before the Qur’ān, but Abdools are forced to deny the truth because the Qur’ān contradicts the Bible.

In Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:43-47 Allah says the Jews have the Torah, and to use it for judgement, as the Torah was sent down from Allah which is guidance and light. Allah also gave Jesus the Gospel which is guidance and light confirming the Torah and that the Christians are to judge by what Allah revealed.[2]

It’s funny we have articles from Abdools lying and denying what the Bible contains thereby inadvertently admitting their prophet and god are false. Here’s such an article from quranandbibleblog Was Jesus “Worshiped” in the Gospels?

“While it can be reasonably argued that the gospel of John presents a higher Christology than the Synoptic gospels, wherein Jesus is made to be a “divine” being of some sort, it is much more difficult to prove that he was “equal” to the Father. However, that is the subject of a separate article. In this article, we will analyze some verses in the Synoptic gospels where Jesus was allegedly “worshiped” by his followers, or so the Christians have claimed.”quranandbibleblog

It’s not hard Abdools to prove Jesus is equal to the Father. Verses which say Jesus is equal to God (John 5:18, Philippians 2:6), but before we get off track let’s get back to the topic. Our task is to provide evidence Jesus Christ was worshipped. We’ve established Muhammad believes in the Torah, and Allah sent down the Gospel, the same one in which Jesus Christ is worshipped.

Their argument “While this list seems to show an impressive amount of evidence that Jesus was “worshiped”, it is actually misleading. Note that most of the verses are found in the Gospel of Matthew, but more importantly, despite all of these verses using the same Greek word, προσκυνέω (proskyneō)”. — quranandbibleblog

The Lord Jesus when He was tempted in the wilderness by Satan Christ said “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:10 I’m sure Muslims would agree that Jesus is telling Satan to worship God, the word used is προσκυνήσεις (proskyníseis) Future Active Indicative. The object in this context is worship to God, notice Jesus didn’t say “worship the Father” even though the Father should indeed receive worship. Jesus said “worship God”, the context determines the meaning of how proskyneō is being used.

In the book of Hebrews chapter 1 the context is the comparison of Jesus Christ against angels, how Christ “being so much better than the angels” Hebrews 1:4. As the Father commands the angels to worship the Son (Jesus Christ) saying “And let all the angels of God worship him Hebrews 1:6 προσκυνησάτωσαν (proskynisátosan) Aorist Active Imperative. We learn here that Jesus is superior to the angels and they are to worship Him.

What’s really troubling for Muslims is the book of Revelation in which the Lamb of God is worshipped. Who is the Lamb of God? We’re told in John 1:29 and John 1:36 that it’s Jesus Christ. In Revelation, we have a vision in heaven God the Father is sitting on the throne the question is asked “Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?” Revelation 5:2. None “in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth” Revelation 5:3 was worthy to open the book. Only the Lamb was worthy to open the book Revelation 5:6-7.

At this point, Jesus Christ who is the Lamb receives universal worship from all of creation. Notice this worship which all of creation is taking part is directed to “him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” Revelation 5:13. Here the word used is προσεκύνησαν (prosekýnisan) Aorist Active Indicative, only God alone deserves this kind of worship and Christ is receiving this worship.

Early Years Of The Messiah-King (2:1-12)

Each Gospel focuses on a theme, Matthew places attention on the Kingship of Jesus Christ the Messiah, Mark showcases Christ as God’s Perfect Servant, Luke is about the Lord Jesus as the Son of Man the Perfect Man, and John focuses on the divinity of Christ as God.

The Abdools are wrong in saying all of the verses use the same word προσκυνέω (proskyneō). Matthew 2:2 uses the word προσκυνῆσαι which is an Aorist Active Infinitive derived from the root word προσκυνέω. It’s important to know how these words are used in multiple ways in Greek, it can refer to a singular or plural expression, the object involved, the tense and mood.

προσκυνῆσαι is a word which expresses continuous activity and the tense refers to action in the present or future. The tense locates the action of a verb in time, relative to the time of the speaker. Greek is a precise language and provides ample evidence that the Magi worshipped (continuous action) Christ as God.

The context of Matthew tells us the Magi came from the East due to seeing a star “For we saw his star in the east (ειδομεν γαρ αυτου τον αστερα εν τη ανατολη).” It’s possible the Magi were familiar with the Messianic prophecies such as Numbers 24:17 “Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel”[3]

As well as the 70 weeks foretelling the first coming of Christ in Daniel 9:24-25 “to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness,…that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks”.[4]

Let’s not overlook the powerful statement the Magi made in saying “Where is he that is born King of the Jews?”[5] Every king in this world is made king, but Jesus Christ is born King.

Matthew 2:8 recalls the account of when Herod was informed of the birth of the King of the Jews but the word used here is different from the above verse. Matthew 2:8 uses a different word προσκυνήσω (proskyníso), this word is an Aorist Active Subjunctive, in Greek, there are different moods the indicative, infinitive, imperative and subjunctive. Why is this important? We’ll get to that in a moment.

Our friends at quranandbibleblog said “So, it appears that the word simply means to “bow down” or to “worship”. However, notice that the Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament states that this “worship” or “veneration” could also be directed “toward human beings”, and it gives the examples of Revelation 3:9 and 13:4. This is where Christians get into some serious trouble. While Revelation 13:4 is not problematic as it refers to the false worship of the “dragon” and “beast” in the end times, Revelation 3:9 is very problematic and exposes the inconsistencies of the Christians.”

In the following verse king Herod tells the Magi “Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also”.[6] Herod had no intention of worshipping Christ he just wanted to locate Him in order to kill Him because Jesus Christ was a threat to Herod’s kingship.

The word προσκυνήσω (proskyníso) is hypothetical, the subjunctive mood primarily can be actions in the present or future. All at the same time covered by the primary tenses of verbs. There are 3 tenses for a subjunctive expressing aspect, not time. These are present: ongoing aspect, aorist: simple aspect and perfect: completed aspect.

To Philadelphia (3:7-13)

This is seen also in the book of Revelation, the same book quranandbibleblog claimed “Revelation 3:9 is very problematic and exposes the inconsistencies of the Christians.” if Abdools took time to read they would’ve seen Revelation 3:9 uses the word προσκυνήσωσιν.

Providing both the English translation Greek we see that this word is different, Revelation 3:9 uses a Subjunctive which is speaking hypothetically, the context determines the meaning of the verse in question.

The Christians at Philadelphia were being persecuted by those who called themselves Jews (the synagogue) but were not true Jews. These Jews claimed the name but they were not true Jews, they had no spiritual connection to the people of faith who had the faith of Abraham.

Because of their faithfulness to the Lord Jesus, they would be vindicated from this particular group saying I will make them come and worship before your feet”,[7] Christ would ensure that their persecutors recognized they were wrong, and the Lord Jesus and His followers were right.

In regards to Revelation 3:9, they said: “Christians will get into some serious theological trouble, as it would mean that humans can rightly be “worshiped” as well” — quranandbibleblog

The surrounding context of the verses that follow determine that this is speaking of the Christians enduring persecution, Jesus is not making those persecutors worship the Christians, but that those persecutors would acknowledge God seeing that the followers of Christ were right in their worship of Jesus.

If Strangers Enter A Meeting (14:24-25)

This concept is seen in the epistle written to the Corinthians, the context is of an unbeliever in the midst of Christians (worship service) and coming to the understanding God is real. As his heart is exposed before God he falls down and worships making a profession of faith.

This solidifies that it wasn’t Christians who were being worshipped by this unbeliever, but God was worshipped in the presence of Christians. Quranandbibleblog wrenched verses out of their context not understanding these verses.

This presents a problem for Muslims because Jesus Christ was worshipped yet Muslims are worshipping a pagan god called Lah. These verses use specific words in Greek giving us context and meaning of how to render those words.

Wise Men Come to Worship The Messiah King (2:1-12)

Matthew 2:11 προσεκύνησαν (prosekýnisan), Aorist Active Indicative. When they entered the house and saw the Child with Mary His mother. They fell down and worshipped Him, offering costly gifts consisting of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Notice that the Magi saw Jesus with His mother. Normally the mention of the mother would come first and then the child, but this Child was anything but ordinary for He must be given the preeminence (vv. 13, 14, 20, 21).

The Magi worshipped Him, not Mary or Joseph. The gifts they brought are a testament to who Christ is. Gold signifies the deity of Christ and His glory. Frankincense speaking to the sinless perfection of the Lord Jesus. And Myrrh is a bitter herb which speaks to the sufferings He would endure bearing the sins of the world on the cross. Woefully Muhammad was never born king.

The power of the Lord Jesus over Leprosy (8:1-4)

Matthew 8:2 προσεκύνει (prosekýnei), Imperfect Active Indicative. In Greek, the imperfect tense is fundamentally the present tense transferred back into the past. The imperfect is a state of existence or action that’s still going on in the past.

Matthew 8:2 proves the power of the Lord Jesus over Leprosy (8:1-4), the teaching of Christ had a drawing power to the point that great multitudes followed Him. Truth verifies itself and though people may not like it, they’ll never forget it. A leper approaches Jesus with a desperate appeal to be healed from his leprosy.

The leper’s had faith that Christ could cure him, and he was indeed healed by the touch of Christ. Leprosy is an appropriate picture of sin due to it being loathsome, destructive and infectious.

Lepers were untouchables physical contact with them might expose a person to infection, but this was not the case with Jesus Christ as He can never be infected because He’s God. In the OT a person with leprosy was unfit to worship with the congregation of Israel, and Christ healed him of this disease. Muhammad, unfortunately, had no ability to heal anyone.

Jesus has the power to heal the incurable and raise the dead (9:18-26)

Matthew 9:18 προσεκύνει (prosekýnei), which is an Imperfect Active Indicative. Matthew 9:18 Jesus gives a discourse on the change of dispensations and was interrupted by a worried ruler whose daughter just died. The ruler knelt before the Lord and requested for Him to come and restore his daughter’s life. Jesus honoured the ruler’s faith. The Lord Jesus took her by the hand, and then she rose from the dead. Sadly, Muhammad never brought anyone back from the dead.

Jesus walks on the Sea (14:22-33)

Matthew 14:33 προσεκύνησαν (prosekýnisan), Aorist Active Indicative. The previous verses of Matthew 14 are proof that Christ did miracles assuring His disciples they followed the One who could abundantly provide, now they learn that Christ is the One who can protect and empower them also.

In verses 22-28 we read how the disciples were a ship, the disciples find themselves in the midst of a storm, the sea tossed them and waves were crashing down. Jesus comes to them walking on the sea. When they saw Him they thought Jesus was a spirit, but Christ says “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.”[8]

Peter asked to come on the water with Him and the Lord Jesus says “Come”, Peter starts to walk on the water to Christ but then becomes afraid because of the storm. Peter begins to sink crying Lord save me. Jesus Christ saves him by taking his hand. When they came into the boat all His disciples worshipped Him. Unfortunately, Muhammad had no power to control nature.

Concerning Position in The Kingdom (20:20-28)

Matthew 20:20 προσκυνοῦσα (proskynoúsa), Present Active Participle. We have the mother of James and John approaching the Lord asking that her 2 sons could sit on either side of Him in his kingdom. She didn’t understand the principles upon which honour is given in the kingdom.

The sons of Zebedee and their mother knew who Christ is as they knew He was the ruler of the kingdom, therefore, they did that which was appropriate for them to do and worshipped Him. Regrettably, Muhammad is not in the kingdom and has no place in it.

The King’s Triumph (28:1-10)

Matthew 28:9 προσεκύνησαν (prosekýnisan), Aorist Active Indicative. Chapter 28 the burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, how He’s victorious over the grave. The women at the sepulchre were told by the angel to go quickly and announce the glorious news to His disciples.

Christ rose from the dead! After they told His disciples about the empty tomb Jesus appeared to them and greeted them saying “hail”, they responded by falling to His feet and worshipping Him.[9] When Muhammad died he didn’t come back from the dead, in fact when he died he was stinking and farting according to the Islamic sources.

The Great Commission (28:16-20)

Matthew 28:17 προσεκύνησαν (prosekýnisan), Aorist Active Indicative. In Galilee Christ Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to His disciples, this is the same appearance in Mark 16:15-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:6. The Lord was triumphant over death as He rose from the dead just as He prophesied He would and because He lives those in Christ live as well.

He stood before His disciples in His glorified body. They worshipped Him as the everlasting living God. Then Christ said that all authority had been given to Him in heaven and on earth. While He always had all authority as God, here He was speaking of authority as Head of all creation. Muhammad never had authority over creation.

The Gadarene Demoniac Healed (5:1-20)

Mark 5:6 προσεκύνησεν (prosekynisan), Aorist Active Indicative. The Gadarenes was located on the east side of Galilee. It was in this place Christ met a demon-possessed man, this violent individual frightened the locals. They tried everything to restrain him but nothing worked, the man lived in the mountains and would cut himself.

When the demoniac man saw Jesus he ran to him and worshipped Him. Verse 7 is telling at this point it was not the man speaking but the demon. The demon responds in a loud voice “What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.”[10]

This demon knew who Jesus was and what He was capable of doing, he even calls Him the Son of God, this proves that Jesus Christ existed before His birth. The Lord Jesus commands the demon to come out of him and to reveal himself, he responded by saying his name is Legion. Signifying the man was possessed with many demons. Then Jesus sends the demons out of the man with authority and power. Embarrassingly for a prophet of god Muhammad had no miracles.

The Son of Man’s Ascension (24:50-53)

Luke 24:52 προσκυνήσαντες (proskynísantes), Aorist Active Participle. The Ascension of Christ happened 40 days after His resurrection. He lead His disciples to Bethany by the Mount of Olives, He then lifted up His hands and blessed them. More proof that Jesus is God as the source of all blessings only come from God. If we as a human were to bless someone we ask for God to bless them, all blessings flow from the greater (God) to the lesser (the individual being blessed). But Christ blessed them directly and only God can do this.

Christ didn’t ask for the Father to bless them, Jesus did the blessing Himself. Hebrews 7:7 “And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.”[11] Then Jesus was taken up into heaven, as the disciples looked upon Him they worshipped Him

To close out this article I thought it necessary to point out something very significant. Muslims accuse Christians of worshipping a man, what they don’t understand is that we worship God who BECAME a real Man. But here’s the hypocrisy their god Allah was the first to commit shirk as he commanded the angels to worship a man. Let’s look at some of those ayats which prove the Qur’an is a false book from Satan.

Well isn’t that something, we’re told that Islam is a pure monotheistic religion yet their god is commanding worship to Adam. Christians worship Jesus Christ because He’s God who came down from heaven, took upon Himself human flesh and walked among us, but Adam is a creation he’s just a man who’s receiving worship because Allah told the angels to worship him. This is sufficient evidence proving Islam is a pagan cult, nothing about it is monotheistic.

Conclusion

We brought evidence that Muhammad believed in the Torah and Bible (Injil), that Jesus Christ is worshipped as God. Here at Whatsoeverthingsaretrue we take hold of the Muslim lies and make mashed potatoes. Our Muslim friends will have to try harder. We don’t hate Muslims but love them enough to tell them the truth, that they need Jesus Christ for salvation.

Jibril was not revealed to Muhammad (Sura 96:1-5) Khadijah told Muhammad he saw an angel

The start of Islam began when Muhammad received Qur’ān in the cave Hira, the traditional Islamic sources tell us that it was an angel who visited Muhammad and delivered the verses of Qur’ān. But did the “angel” ever reveal himself as such?

Certainly, if we apply the same stipulation when it comes to the Bible we’re told that the angel (ἄγγελος) Gabriel (Γαβριὴλ) came to Mary announcing Mary would give birth to Jesus. Therefore we can be certain who this angel was that appeared to Mary.

Notice the scripture says the angel Gabriel was sent from God (θεοῦ), Mary who is the virgin visited by the angel is then greeted by him as he said, Hail (Χαῖρε). Looking at the Greek confirms what we have in our Bible.

In the Qur’ān, we find the same story in Surah Maryam with the exclusion of the angel identifying himself to her. He tells her that she will have a pure boy, this is of course Isa (the Islamic version of Jesus).

Even Mary gets more respect than Muhammad, this angel who Muslims agree it’s Jibril (Gabriel) didn’t squeeze Mary the way Muhammad was pressed like a grapefruit. In Surah 96:1-5 we have the story of “Jibril” coming to Muhammad and violently pressing or squeezing him 3 times.

The Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir in his tafsir tells us that Muhammad could no longer bear it being squeezed by this angel who never said who he was, if the angel never said he was Jibril then how can Muslims tell us it was Jibril?

Kathir tells us that Muhammad would go to cave Hira to worship, this brings up a good question if Muhammad didn’t receive Qur’ān at this point who was Muhammad worshipping? He couldn’t have known who Allah was, this confirms that Muhammad was a pagan just as Shaykh Uthman ibn Farooq said: Muhammed didn’t come from an Abrahamic faith but was a pagan who didn’t know Jibril.

According to Kathir, the revelation came to Muhammad suddenly in cave Hira, the angel said “Read” seizing Muhammad and pressed him multiple times until he could no longer bear it. Afterwards, Muhammad was afraid and ran to his wife Khadijah. In the following explanation from Kathir we’re told that Khadijah took Muhammad to see her cousin Waraqah bin Nawfal who according to Islamic tradition was a Christian, truth is he was not a Christian he was a Nasara. and it was these two who convinced Muhammad that the angel was Jibril.

Neither Khadijah or Waraqah bin Nawfal were there with Muhammad in the cave, how can they with surety say this was an angel and not a demon. Kathir then tells us about the mental state of Muhammad, when Waraqah bin Nawfal died and the “revelations” stopped Muhammad became depressed and tried killing himself multiple times by tossing himself off a mountain.

Confirming what Kathir tells us in the tafsir we will now turn to an authentic Hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari which corroborates this story.

Sahih al-Bukhari 3392 states the prophet returned to his wife Khadija in fear of what he just experienced. Khadija takes Muhammad to visit her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal and he tells Muhammad that what he experienced was an angel. As we see here it was Waraqa who claimed Muhammad saw an angel. No account in the Qur’ān ever mentions this was an angel from Allah.

Additionally, we also have the account of Khadija giving Muhammad a lap dance found in The Life of Muhammad by Ibn Isḥāq on page 107. Here she puts the “Jibril” to a test asking the prophet to sit on her lap asking Muhammad if he still sees him, in-which Muhammad responds by saying yes. Once she gets undressed this entity departs and Khadija then tells Muhammad this is an angel of God.

Muhammad’s entire prophethood rest on top of these 2 people Waraqa bin Naufal and his wife Khadija. When Muhammad was in the cave this being never revealed himself stating that he was Jibril. Where do Muslims get this fabricated idea from because it’s not in the Qur’ān? As we saw in this article Muhammad had no witnesses to his experience in the cave, the “angel” never gave Muhammad a name and lastly Muhammad didn’t know he was a prophet, it was Waraqa and Khadija who claimed Muhammad was a prophet.

It’s not difficult to see that Muhammad never received revelations from God, all of the Qur’ān is made up of fabricated stories from a man who’s mentally ill.

Allah Opens Harry Potter School for Magic in sūrat l-baqarah (Hārūt and Mārūt)

The popular Muslim website Islamqa is a da‘wah site supervised by Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid. They provide “answers” for Muslims who write in asking questions about Islam. This article focuses on magic in Islam. Is magic viewed as something evil or good? A Muslim wrote asking:

I am Muslim and I am from India. I grew up reading fairy tales and fantasies, but now after all these years I am being told everywhere that there is no good magic in Islam and there is only witchcraft. Now I am desperately looking for answers to my “CHILDHOOD FANTASIES”. I hope you would clear my doubt.

Here’s the response from Islamqa: “According to Islamic teaching, all magic is evil, for two reasons” the reasons given are:

(1) The way in which it is attained, through which the practitioner of magic or witchcraft seeks help from the realm of the jinn and shayaateen (devils) to achieve his magic. This is a way that is filled with things that undermine one’s religious commitment and involves resorting to haraam things and – in many cases – falling into disbelief and apostasy. That is done is done to please the devils to meet the needs of that unknown realm which seeks to deceive the sons of Adam.

(2) The aim of Islam is to close this door altogether and block the means that usually lead to spreading evil among the people and causing trouble among them. That is because most of the deeds that the practitioners of magic commit only result in causing evil and harm to people. Hence it is reasonable and acceptable to say that a complete prohibition is the only way to block this evil and to rid the land and community of those evil deeds and of the illusions and myths that are connected to them, by ridding societies of witchcraft and its practitioners. This obviously serves a great purpose.

In Surah Al-Baqarah we have a story of 2 angels Allah sent called Hārūt and Mārūt, these 2 angels taught the people magic in Babylon.

If Allah decrees everything which happens then he decreed for Hārūt and Mārūt to teach black magic, which means Allah is the source of evil. As Islamqa stated, According to Islamic teaching, all magic is evil”. If all magic is evil just as they said then the conclusion is that black magic comes from Allah.

To further prove this point Islamqa answered another question about Is man’s fate pre-destined or does he have freedom of will? In which they made statements such as: Belief in al-qadar (the divine will and decree) is one of the pillars of faithWhat is meant by al-qadar is that Allaah has decreed all things from eternity and knows that they will happen at times that are known to Him, and in specific ways, and that He has written that and willed it, and they happen according to what He has decreed.

It’s a pillar of Islam to believe that all comes from Allah, there is no free will in Islam. We can further illustrate this by going to the Sahih Hadith’s. In this Hadith, we have an argument between Adam and Moses. How Moses and Adam are arguing is another mistake as they didn’t exist at the same time while on earth, and if this happened in Jannah how could that be because they would have been kicked out of Jannah before having this discussion.

As you’ve read this Sahih Hadith, Moses blamed Adam saying he deprived us and caused all of humanity to be kicked out of Paradise. Adam refutes Moses saying how can he be blamed for something Allah decreed 40 years before Adam was created?

Where’s the free will here? Adam didn’t have free will in fact Allah is the one responsible for decreeing that Adam would disobey and eat from the tree. The same way Allah decreed for Hārūt and Mārūt to teach black magic to the people.

And what exactly was the purpose for them to teach black magic? According to the Islamic sources, Hārūt and Mārūt taught people how to separate from their spouses (divorce) through the use of magic. How evil is that?! According to Islamic scholar Ibn-Kathir we read:

Ibn-Kathir tells us these angels came to Babylon saying they didn’t teach anyone till they had said “We are for a trial, so disbelieve not” in other words this was a test and by learning this magic the people would be disbelieving by doing so. Is this a joke or what? Allah sends angels to teach the people black magic meaning Allah is tempting the people by doing so.

Here we’re told the people indulged in evil by learning black magic from these 2 angels, as the magic was causing separation between spouses. Kathir goes as far as to say this was a work of Satan, and we couldn’t agree more!

Here we have Satan and the closet person to him causes the most Fitnah (Arabic: فتنة ,فتن: “temptation, trial; sedition, civil strife, conflict”). Iblis (Satan) embraces the shaitan who was successful in causing separation between a husband and wife. More evidence that Allah can only be Satan himself.

The God of the Bible never causes anyone to separate from their spouse, God never condones divorce solidifying the fact Allah cannot be Yahweh as they are not remotely the same. Here are a few verses from the Bible, proving this fact.

As you can see in the Torah God says a man and women come together and become one flesh. Jesus Christ also quotes the same verse from Genesis and says let not man put asunder. And the Muslims favourite Paul the apostle teaches the same Jesus did, yet Muslims always try to blame Paul for teaching something different.

Our purpose here is not to hate Muslims but to love them by bringing the truth, that their eyes and heart would be open. In hopes, they would have salvation by coming to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins.

The Qur’ān Proves Jesus Christ is God

Qur’ān 19:15 starts with Allah saying “peace be upon him the day he was born”, who is the “he” spoken of in this verse that Allah is blessing? We’ll get into that shortly.

The goal of this article is to prove the Qur’ān confirms the deity of Christ. It sounds strange to use the Qur’ān to prove Jesus Christ is God, but in dealing with Muslims it’s vital to provide evidence from their own book. Since Muslims reject the Bible it makes no sense proving the deity of Jesus Christ from the Bible with them in the beginning.

Once a Muslim’s realises the falsehood of the Qur’ān it’s then the door is wide open to share the Gospel with them, this is important when using polemics. To begin we’ll start with the above verse sūrat maryam ayat 15. Allah bestows peace to the individual spoken of, the following verses afterwards gives us insight its Yahya (John the Baptist). To prove this is speaking of John we need only to read the proceeding verses most notably ayat 12.

To further confirm we read in the Tafsir al-Jalalayn which says Allah was speaking about John (Yahya) the Baptist who we know according to the Bible is the cousin of Jesus found in the Gospel of Luke 1:13-1:80. Other Islamic scholars who agree are Ibn ‘Abbas as well as Ibn Kathir.

If Allah says “Peace be upon him” referring to Yahya, and if Allah is the only one who can say “Peace be upon him”, then how do Muslims explain the following verse? If Allah alone can bestow peace upon others, there are no prophets including Muhammad who can bestow peace upon someone else what will Muslims do when Isa (Jesus) does?

According to Surah 19 ayat 33 Isa (Jesus) is saying “Peace be upon me”, this is not Allah bestowing peace on Jesus, no! This is Jesus is bestowing peace upon Himself, therefore, if God can only bestow peace upon others this would mean by Jesus saying “Peace be upon me” this is proof that He’s God.

We can also confirm once again through the Tafsir that this verse is speaking of Jesus. According to Ibn Kathir in the following ayats which leads up to 19:33, Kathir says…

Apparently Isa (Jesus) according to the Islamic narrative spoke from his cradle. This is not an original writing from the Qur’ān, in actuality Muhammad got this from from The Syriac Infancy Gospel known as the Arabic Infancy Gospel. It’s a New Testament apocryphal writing about the infancy of Jesus. Here’s the passage in the Infancy Gospel in which Muhammad stoled and placed in the Qur’ān 19:29.

“… Jesus spake when he was in the cradle, and said to his mother: “Mary, I am Jesus the Son of God, the Word, which thou didst bring forth according to the declaration of the angel Gabriel, and My Father hath sent me for the salvation of the world.””

The Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir tells us that Isa was breastfeeding and upon hearing Mary’s accusers claiming she was guilty of sexual immorality stopped breastfeeding and answered them saying “peace be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!” in Surah 19:33.

If Jesus is not God how can He speak from the cradle as an infant? Christians do not believe this is inspired writing from God but Muhammad clearly plagiarised this from the Infancy Gospel as it was written to prove Jesus was more than a Man. How do Muslims explain this blatant act of thief from their prophet?

How do they explain Isa speaking to them from the cradle as an infant, none of the prophets according to Islam done such a thing. This is not a normal event.

Lastly, we see that the Qur’ān confirms the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ in which we find in Matthew 17:22-23, Mark 9:31, Luke 9:44. The Qur’an says that Isa (fake Jesus) will die and be raised alive, but this also contradicts Surah 4:157 which says Jesus didn’t die. If Jesus is not dead then He’s God because a mere man cannot live for over 2000+ years.

A mere man can only live at most a little over 100 years, the average life expectancy is anywhere between 75-82 years. And as mentioned if a person is fortunate to live 100 years he will die. Now Isa is according to Islam over 2000+ years old how can this be if Jesus is only a man? It would be impossible unless Isa (fake Jesus) is more than a man.

The Hadith says Dajjal is a man compared to Allah

When referencing the Qur’ān’s teaching of Allah’s face or any other mentioned part the typical Muslim response is “There is nothing like unto Him.” ayah 42:11. Indeed Allah has a face in which Muslims are to pray towards, one of the top Islamic scholars al-Jalalayn comments in the Tafsir.

We’ll look to answer this mystery more sufficiently as we take a closer look at the similarities of Allah and the Dajjal.

Islam teaches there’s a coming day in which the Dajjal will come to deceive people into thinking he’s the Messiah. Muhammad burrowed this doctrine from such Biblical text such as Matthew 24:23, Mark 13:21, 1 John 2:18 and Revelation 13:1 to name a few.

The Dajjal in Islam

The above Hadith is graded Sahih (authentic) in case Muslims claim it’s a weak (Da’if) Hadith, this Hadith is accepted by Muslim scholars. Notice the description of the Dajjal as being short in stature, hen-toed, woolly-haired and one-eyed, these descriptions denotes he has a physical body. It’s important to keep in mind that Muhammad is assuring Muslims that their Lord is not one-eyed. Therefore we can gather that Allah looks identical to the Dajjal except for the distinguishing feature that Allah is not one-eyed.

According to the Islamic narrative the Dajjal is an evil individual in Islamic eschatology who’ll claim he’s the awaited Messiah but in fact he’s the false Messiah, arriving on the scene before the Day of Resurrection. This is important later we’ll see how this comes into play. Also there’s no such thing as the “Antichrist” in Islam the actual terminology is Al-Masih ad-Dajjal (the false Messiah).

Continuing to prove the Dajjal looks like Allah we will read other Hadith’s which exposes Allah as having a shape, 2 right hands, a foot and so on.

The above Hadith Sunan an-Nasa’i describes Allah as having two right hands

This Hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari says Allah will come in a shape the Muslims won’t recognise, they’ll essentially reject Allah. Allah will then change his shape only then will the Muslims recognise him and will follow Allah.

Sahih al-Bukhari describes Allah as having a foot and he will his foot over hell and say “Qati! Qati!” (enough enough) stoping additional people from being tossed into hell. These are all descriptions of body parts Allah has. Just as we read earlier the Dajjal has one eye and Muhammad is telling Muslims not to be confused Allah doesn’t have 1 eye.

If Allah is nothing like his creation why are we being given vivid descriptions of body parts? If we learned that Allah has eyes, shape, hands and a foot how can Muslims reject the Christian belief that God became a Man in the Person of Jesus Christ?

How will Muslims Recognise Allah?

The Qur’ān says that Allah will uncover his shin on the Day of Resurrection Surah 68:42. The Arabic actually says “the leg”, again the question has to be raised if Allah is not a man how can he have legs?

We come to the conclusion that the god of Islam is made up of body parts just like any human. The Islamic sources tell us he has eyes, hands, feet and a shape. The Qur’ān says Allah has a face, yet Muslims profess that Allah is nothing like his creation, but the Qur’ān and Hadith are using terms which are found in creation.

If Dajjal is claiming to be the Messiah how is he claiming to be god? Muhammad said he’s afraid because Muslims will mistake him the Dajjal for their “Lord” otherwise known as Allah.

Christians believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, our God became a real Man. The Islamic sources also have this concept because Muhammad tried to take the teachings from the Bible without understanding them making many mistakes and contradictions in the Qur’ān and Hadith.

Christadelphians “reject that the Holy Spirit is a person distinct from the Father” (4)

In this article we are going to prove that the Holy Spirit is indeed a Person distinct from the Father, contrary to the Christadelphian belief in which they reject the Personhood of the Spirit of God.

We reject the doctrine – that the Holy Spirit is a person distinct from the Father.

“God fills His creation. All of its activity is because of His wise and sustaining Spirit, the divine energy working out His gracious purpose. The Spirit is not a “separate” or “other” person. It is God’s own radiant power, ever outflowing from Him, by which His “everywhereness” is achieved. The Spirit is personal in that it is of God Himself: it is not personal in the sense of being some other person within the Godhead.” — christadelphia.org

The Christadelphians claim the Holy Spirit is not a Person, when the Lord Jesus was baptised we see something interesting. We have Christ in the water, the heavens were opened “the Spirit of God” came down upon Jesus and we have a voice from heaven saying “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” there’s no mistake that the voice from heaven was God the Father.

But we have a classic view of the Trinity in this passage (1) Jesus Christ in the water (2) The Holy Spirit coming down as a dove (3) A voice from heaven which is God the Father. 3 distinct Persons are involved in Matthew 3:16-17.

Matthew 3:16-17 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

The Christadephians would still reject this claiming this is not enough proof, ok let’s see if we have more evidence for the Personhood of the Holy Spirit? There are certain categories in which we can prove the Holy Spirit possesses Personhood.

Intelligence

The Holy Spirit shows the capability to know, think and understand, He searches all the deep things concerning God. The Holy Spirit is capable of knowing all the divine truth of the Godhead. This is a character trait of Personhood. Just as the Lord Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will teach us all things concerning Him (John 14:26).

1 Corinthians 2:10-11 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

Emotion

He has emotional capacity to feel and love. The Holy Spirit is capable of feeling grief which is an emotional trait, only a Person can feel grieved.

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

How can “energy” be grieved? It cannot because energy doesn’t have a capacity to feel emotions. Only a Person has the ability to be grieved, and if they experience grief they can also experience the capacity to love as well.

Will

Lastly, He has the ability to decide and act according to His will. According to this verse in Corinthians the Holy Spirit distributes spiritual gifts as He wills. Thereby, this shows the Spirit of God through His actions of giving is a Person.

1 Corinthians 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Conclusion

These 3 passages show the Holy Spirit is possesses the ability of intelligence, the capacity of emotion feeling love and grief, and He can also give gifts according to His will. This are characteristics only a Person can have. The Holy Spirit is not some “force”, “energy” or power emanating from God.

7 “Christian Truths” Pt. II According to WMSCOG Member

“I am not an expert or a teacher, but I have been taught and do believe what the Word says. … I will include the link below where you can find some more specific answers, … At World Mission Society Church of God, it is a global church that is rapidly being built more all over the world. We practice everything in the bible, … the biblical Zion where He has chosen to dwell in order to restore the truth that has been distorted and corrupted over the past 1,600 years (Psalms 132:13-14). You will not find another church that teaches Gods mysteries, because only God Himself can reveal them. This has nothing to do with pride or arrogance about being the “best/right” church and has everything to do with what God already prophesied (Isaiah 2:3).”

1) God is weeding out His children from Satan’s children (Matthew 13)

Matthew 13

It’s ironic that Matthew 13 is mentioned because it concerns the Gospel message, something the WMSCOG doesn’t teach. The chapter concerns the parable of the sower and the different soils and their reaction to the Gospel message. In the case of Raven I wonder which of these soils she identifies herself as and why?

2) Everything on earth that is made, is made to teach us what is in heaven. It is a copy and shadow, heaven is the reality and earth is the shadow. (Like the family system on earth, consisting of a dad, mom and children teaching us that we have a spiritual family) (Heb 8:5, Rom 1:10)

Hebrews 8:5 and Romans 1:10

Hebrews 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, [that] thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Romans 1:10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

Hebrews 8:5 Talks about a better ministry which is in Christ, how He is our Great High Priest serving as our Mediator. In that the Old Testament priest who served in the temple was not perfect it was inferior compared to Jesus Christ and His ministry as our Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5), that’s the context of Hebrews 8:5

Hebrews 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, [that] thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

The best practice is reading not only the highlighted verse but also the surrounding text to get a clear view of what’s being taught. And we see it certainly doesn’t refer to a “family system on earth” as Raven suggest. Here’s the following verse:

Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Notice these words “a more excellent ministry”, “mediator of a better covenant” and “better promises” this is what the context is speaking of, Jesus as the one who fulfills the role of our Mediator.

Romans 1:10 is talking about how Paul brought the message of the Gospel, he was talking to believers in Christ. Paul was thankful for the believers in Rome and prayed that he might visit them again in the near future and wanted his journey to be according to the will of God. That’s all the verse is speaking about.

3) The old covenant was written to teach us, all the stories are prophecy about us spiritually. We are living in the New testament times. Revelation isn’t the only book about us, the whole bible is. (Romans 15:4)

Romans 15:4

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Romans 15:4 is an Old Testament reference found in the Psalms, while they were not written directly to us, they hold vital lessons for us. When we go through problems no matter what they might be the Scriptures teach us to remain steadfast in our faith, and they give us comfort. That we have nothing to fear because the LORD will hold us up.

Psalm 119:50 This [is] my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

But not all of the Bible is prophecy, much of it is also historical, poetical and doctrinal. The WMSCOG looks to spiritualize the entire Bible and in doing so has convoluted the message and clear teaching of the scriptures.

4) God speaks in parables, that only He allows His chosen to read with correct understanding, it is spiritually sealed. That is why there are 850+ denominations because only God can interpret His own salvation work, human minds can only try/attempt to know and teach the gospel but do not succeed. This is why God had to come again in the flesh, to correct what was ruined so that we could know the way to have salvation. (Isaiah 2:3, Matt 13:10, Rev 5:1-4)

Isaiah 2:3, Matthew 13:10, Revelation 5:1-4

Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Matthew 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

Revelation 5:1-4 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

The Lord Jesus spoke in parables for a purpose, it was the plan of God because if the Jews would have accepted Christ as the Messiah in the beginning they wouldn’t have crucified Him which was necessary for our salvation. The crucifixion had to happen, it was the infinite wisdom of God to save us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That’s why Jesus spoke in parables.

Raven mentions denominations. While I do not subscribe to denominations what she doesn’t understand is any denomination which believes in the primary essential truths is what determines if a person is a Christian, which are (1) the Trinity (Father, Son, The Holy Spirit) (2) Jesus is God (3) Salvation is by grace alone, through faith in Christ alone (4) Believers baptism. If any denomination denies any of the foundational truths then they are heretical.

Secondary beliefs does not determine if someone is Christian, some secondary beliefs are (1) how someone is baptised (full immersion in water backwards or forwards) (2) the role of women in the church (3) how corporate worship is to be conducted (4) shall one pastor lead or a plurality of elders.

5) Women are supposed to wear veils during worship, so she can worship God directly and correctly (cancelling out her “head”, which is man (world system is Christ, man and then woman) (1 Corinthians 11:3-9)

1 Corinthians 11:3-9

1 Corinthians 11:3-9 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God. Every man praying or prophesying, having [his] head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

The covering for woman is for a few reasons (1) Headship in the order of creation, man (Adam) was created first then woman (Eve). (2) Because of the angels “For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.” (1 Corinthians 11:10). (3) This is to be done during corporate worship, men pray uncovered and woman are to be covered.

The veil is not how women can directly worship God, women just like men can worship God directly through Christ, “the veil of the temple was rent in twain” giving all believers direct access to God (Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45).

In the book of Hebrews we’re told how Christ paved the way for us to approach God (Hebrews 6:19). And we now have boldness when coming into the presence of God because Jesus Christ made the way for us through His blood.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 10:19-20 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

6) New covenant does not mean we stop doing everything God commanded, the law was established through the old covenant, we still keep it even in this time of 2020, just in a different way (not animal sacrifices etc.) (Matt 5:17, Matt 19:17)

Matthew 5:17, 19:17

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Raven believes that because Christ said He came to fulfil the Law that we also must follow the Old Covenant, I’m wondering if she knows that the Bible says the Old Covenant is waxed old and vanishing away?

Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new [covenant], he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.

Why anyone would want to remain in the Old Covenant that’s old and vanishing away makes no sense whatsoever.

7) Tuesdays (Third day) and Saturdays (Sabbath) are the days God has appointed to cleanse our souls (Numbers 19:12, Exodus 19:15)

Numbers 19:12, Exodus 19:15

Numbers 19:12 He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.

Exodus 19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at [your] wives.

The ignorance of WMSCOG is that they don’t understand why Christians worship on Sunday. Immediately after Jesus victoriously rose from the dead, some Jewish converts were confused about certain practices such as circumcision, which day of worship to observe, and whether or not to observe the Jewish feasts. These issues were addressed by Paul in Colossians 2:14-17 and Galatians 5:6. Paul enters the Jewish synagogue on the Sabbath in order to preach the Gospel to the Jews (Acts 17:2, 18:4) and afterwards gathers with believers on Sunday (Acts 20:7).

Acts 20:7 And upon the first [day] of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Remember Saturday is not the first day of the week, it’s the 7th day of the week, but here we see on the first day of the week which is Sunday; the disciples came together.

It’s ver unfortunate that people like Raven and others are being mislead into thinking they are capable of keep the Law. We are not perfect and the reason why God gave the Law ultimately was to show us how incapable we are to keep it. The Old Testament Law is called a schoolmaster in the book of Galatians and Paul tells us what was the purpose of the schoolmaster.

Galatians 3:24-25 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

The purpose of the Law was to show us how sinful we are so that we would run to Jesus Christ for salvation, it’s through our faith in Christ that we are justified and made right with God. It’s not by keeping certain days like the Sabbath.

Lastly, notice how Raven says “I am sorry if you are one of those people who have experienced church and it be a nightmare for you, or something unholy happened that broke your trust and faith.”

We should never judge God by what a group of men have done, we always look to God Himself to see who He is, there are people out there who claim to love God and would do a person wrong. But that’s man who messed up not God. The WMSCOG claims to be the “true church” they are not the only cult which claims this. Here are a few quotes from some other cults.

Notice the similarities between the WMSCOG and these other cults which claim their church is the only true church.

Watchtower Quotes (Jehovah Witnesses)

Jehovah Witnesses claim any group outside of their own are considered “False religions”, and the only way to understand the Bible is through them.

“False religious propaganda from any source should be avoided like poison! Really, since our Lord has used “the faithful and discreet slave” to convey to us “sayings of everlasting life,” why should we ever want to look anywhere else?” Watchtower 1987 Nov 1 p.20

“We cannot hope to acquire a good relationship with Jehovah if we ignore those whom Jesus has appointed to care for his belongings. Without the assistance of “the faithful and discreet slave,” we would neither understand the full import of what we read in God’s Word nor know how to apply it.” Watchtower 2010 Sept 15 p. 8-9

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Quotes (Mormons)

“It is our firm conviction that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is, as the revelations state, “the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth.”” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

“Because of this declaration of the Lord, we refer to this, His Church—our Church—as the “only true Church.”” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

“So what does it mean that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true Church? Three features—(1) fulness of doctrine, (2) power of the priesthood, and (3) testimony of Jesus Christ—explain why God has declared and why we as His servants maintain that this is the only true and living Church upon the face of the whole earth.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

World Mission Society Church of God Quotes

“However, even though many churches keep Sunday, God’s true day of worship cannot be changed to Sunday—the day to worship the sun. God’s commandments must not be changed by man for any reason.” WATV.Org

“God came to this earth according to the prophecies of the Bible, and revealed the truth hidden in darkness to the whole world and let us know the true day of worship we should observe. The Sabbath that the Church of God keeps holy on Saturday, the seventh day, is the pure truth of the early Church which Christ restored at His second coming.” WATV.Org

Conclusion

If you remember what Raven said she mentioned “You will not find another church that teaches Gods mysteries” in other words in her mind only the WMSCOG alone is the “truth”. No. Only Jesus Christ alone is the Truth (John 14:6) and I hope that Raven and other WMSCOG members will come to know this for themselves, it’s not about a church; it’s about a Person and that’s Jesus Christ.

If you’re a current WMSCOG member this is not an article written to be a personal attack against you, but a wake up call. A call to you to be “noble and search the scriptures daily whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11), just like the Bereans we also need to dig into the scriptures and “prove all things” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

Salvation is not found in WMSCOG or any other group, Eternal Life is only found in Jesus Christ. We must be sure that we are following the real Jesus Christ of the Bible, Jesus said that their will be many false Christ (Matthew 24:23-28; Mark 13:21-23). The WMSCOG preaches a false Christ but it’s up to you to look into the scriptures and sift through the evidence, I hope for your own sake that you’ll put your feelings to the side and see if these things are true.

A good source for learning more about the erroneous teachings of the WMSCOG from ex-members some of which were leaders in the group. Is a channel called Great Light Studios run by a believer named Jordan, he has current and ex-members come on and discuss teachings from the WMSCOG. Feel free to check them out.

7 “Christian Truths” Pt. l According to WMSCOG Member

The World Mission Society Church of God originated in South Korea and it’s led by a woman in her mid-70s, also known as Jang Gil-ja, Zhang Gil-jah, Chang Gil-jah, “heavenly mother”, “god the mother”, “New Jerusalem mother”, and “mother Jerusalem”. Created by Ahnsahnghong, who’s believed to be her late husband, and it’s also claimed that he was the second coming of Christ, along with Jang Gil-ja are together known as “Elohim God”.

If Ahnsahnghong was the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ, yet Ahnsahnghong died February 25, 1985 then how can WMSCOG explain this verse in the Bible which says Jesus only died once and cannot die again?

Romans 6:9-10 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Raven’s Revelations wrote an article titled “7 Christian Truths Pt. l“. I was curious to learn how WMSCOG members interpreted scripture, and test these beliefs to see if they actually aligned with the scriptures.

“I want to keep my “preaching/sharing” to a minimum when it comes to online. However, since people skim through here and this is a Christian (Spiritual) blog, I believe it’s best to incorporate some things here and there. It is not to argue or become controversial, it is just sharing knowledge. Not my own, but God’s.”Raven’s Revelations

The preface is that what’s shared is not her Raven’s knowledge. … but God’s. We’re told it’s God’s knowledge, she also says “I am not an expert or a teacher, but I have been taught and do believe what the Word says”. Raven admits to not being an expert or teacher but she’s been taught, does this means the WMSCOG alone has “the truth”?

She mentions “Even though next to these truths there will be referenced bible verses, it doesn’t mean you will fully understand where the truth came from through that verse…but it’s a start to plant the seed.” Raven is implying she has special insight (revelation) to the meaning of these verses, this truly lives up to the name of her blog.

Lastly, like all the rest she directs you to the WMSCOG website at the bottom of her page. Members are taught that WMSCOG alone knows the Bible. And unless you’re part of their church then you cannot have salvation, this is the mindset groups like this produce.

1) “We have a Heavenly Father, but also a Heavenly Mother. (There is a male a female image of God). We come from a complete family (Gen 1:26-27, Gal 4:26, Rev 19:7 & 22:17)”

As humans we need a male and female to produce offspring, but not so with God, He’s not subject to the laws of creation, God doesn’t procreate (produce offspring sexually) which is a blasphemous thing to insinuate. The WMSCOG interpolates this idea into the Bible by saying believers are children of God, hence, therefore there must be a Father and mother.

This is simply not true, we are children of God because the LORD has given us His Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 4:8).

Genesis 1:26-27

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

All Christians believe the Godhead, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the one God spoken of in Deuteronomy 6:4. Nowhere is “god the mother” mentioned, when Christ sent the disciples He said “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Matthew 28:19, this would have been a perfect time to mention “god the mother” but He didn’t.

Galatians 4

The WMSCOG frequently quotes Galatians 4:26 illustrating the existence of “god the mother”. Galatians mentions a “Jerusalem above“ that is spoken to be the “mother” of believers in Christ. So, what exactly does this imply? The premise of the context in Galatians is speaking of Faith VS Works, there’s no reason to suppose this passage teaches a “mother god”?

WMSCOG misinterprets the context of the passage, Paul never mentions a “god the mother”, the context is addressing the fact that believers are free in Christ. Paul says this was an allegory to convey a particular message (Galatians 4:24). Paul takes us back into the Torah concerning the dispute between Sarah and Hagar.

Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

Paul makes a distinction between 2 covenants namely the Torah (The Law) and the New Testament the grace of God. In Genesis 21 were reminded of Abraham’s sons Ishmael and Isaac. Ishmael was born from Hagar the bondwoman and Isaac was born from the free woman Abraham’s wife Sarah.

Hagar (slave) represented the Old Testament Law and Sarah a free woman the New Testament how we are made free, with that ground work laid we can see what the passage in Galatians says. The next verse says that the children of Hagar (Agar) are in bondage with her, also mount Sinai is identified with Hagar as that’s where God gave the Law to Moses.

Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

The verse also says these children of Hagar answer to Jerusalem, back in Genesis Hagar was under the authority of Sarah, Abraham’s wife. Abraham is told by Sarah to have a child with Hagar because Sarah cannot have children due to her barren womb. Abraham shouldn’t have done this as God promised him s son from Sarah. After Hagar give birth to Ishmael to Sarah’s amazement she finds herself pregnant and gives birth to Isaac.

When Ishmael mocked Isaac Sarah told Abraham to send away Hagar and Ishmael for he will never be heir with Isaac (Genesis 21:9-10). When Paul refers to Jerusalem as “our mother,” he’s not referring to a 2nd deity referred to as “god the mother.” The Jerusalem mentioned above is the “new covenant” of righteousness through faith, Paul’s encouraging believers to remember they are not children under the old covenant = “Hagar”, but rather under the new covenant = “Sarah”. In Gal 4 Sarah is paralleled with the “Jerusalem above,” and so Sarah herself is another symbol or representation of faith. Hagar is also used as a symbol of “works.”

All individuals who pursue righteousness through deeds, according to Paul, are Hagar’s children. This poses a huge problem for WMSCOG doctrine, if WMSCOG desires to interpret Sarah’s and Jerusalem’s symbolism as a teaching about a “god the mother,” they must also take into account the reality that Hagar is a “mother” also. If Sarah is a representation of “god the mother,” then Hagar must be a representation of another god. This concept is problematic for WMSCOG doctrine.

Revelation 19:7 & 22:17

Raven mentions Rev 19:7 & 22:17 as proof “there is a male a female image of God” this passage is called the Marriage of the Lamb, the Lamb being Jesus Christ (John 1:29; 1:36; Rev 5:6). If WMSCOG claims that if Rev 19:7 is speaking of the wife of the Lamb, are they then stating that Jesus’ wife is His own mother?

Revelation 22:17 mentions the bride again if this verse is speaking about “god the mother” then is Jesus marrying His mother? Obviously, these claims are ridiculous and I would hope that members of WMSCOG are not claiming this.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

“We may wonder if 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ ever taught about God the Mother. He did. Jesus Christ explained through the parable of the Wedding Banquet that God the Mother would appear in our time. He starts the parable by comparing the Kingdom of Heaven to a wedding banquet.” — WMSCOG

They then quote a verse in Matthew to substantiate their position. “‘The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.’”Matthew 22:2

Again are they saying Jesus Christ married “god the mother” by quoting Matthew 22:2 it says a wedding banquet for his son

Both Revelation 19:7 and 22:17 is speaking about the Lord Jesus being married to the collective body of believers (saints) in Christ, also known as the bride of Christ.

Revelation 19:7-8 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

2) Passover is the way to eternal life and it is once a year (communion and other ceremonies is a mimicking of that, that does not provide eternal life.) (John 6:53-54, Matthew 26:26-28, Leviticus 23:4)

WMSCOG teaches that we must “keep the passover” for eternal life. This couldn’t be further from the truth literally. Concerning eternal life Jesus said:

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Only through Jesus Christ can a person receive eternal life, keeping the passover was given to the children of Israel in the Old Testament only for that dispensation which is contain in the Law of Moses. God never intended for anyone to earn everlasting life by keeping the Law, in the book of Romans and Galatians we read that no one will be justified by the Law (Romans 3:20; Galatians 3:11).

John 6:53-54

John 6:53-54 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

The disciples ate the bread and drank the wine, but they did not literally eat and drink Jesus’ flesh and blood. The Lord Jesus simply expressed that we would never be saved unless we apply the value of His dying for us on Calvary via faith. We must believe in Him and trust Him as our personal Savior.

Matthew 26:26-28

Matthew 26:26-28 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed [it], and brake [it], and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

The Saviour instituted the Lord’s Supper, the essential emblems (bread and wine) were on the table as part of the Paschal meal; the Lord Jesus taught them the meaning. He took the bread, blessed and broke it. He gave it to the disciples and said “take, eat, this is My body” His body had not yet been given on the cross, it’s clear that He was speaking figuratively using the bread to symbolize His body not literally.

Leviticus 23:4

Leviticus 23:4 These [are] the feasts of the LORD, [even] holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

The Passover commemorated Israel’s redemption from their bondage in Egypt. The Passover lamb was type of Christ, the Lamb of God our passover (1 Corinthians 5:7). The Lord Jesus’ blood was shed to redeem us from slavery to our sins. Additionally, the Pharisees

3) The Sabbath (day of rest) is Saturday, not Sunday or whenever we want (it was moved by Satan through Roman Emperor Constantine after the last Apostle John died). (Leviticus 23:3, Luke 6)

WMSCOG doesn’t understand that while the Sabbath is Saturday, Christians worship Christ everyday but the reason why we come together on Sunday (Lord’s day) is because Christ rose from the dead on Sunday.

Matthew 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

Mark 16:1-2 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Luke 24:1 Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them.

John 20:1 The first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

The WMSCOG are not reading verses in their immediate context that’s how these groups suck people into their false teachings. It’s nothing new there were false teachers in the day’s of Jesus and the apostles we should expect them even today.

Leviticus 23:3

Leviticus 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.

The early church came together on the 1st day of the week (Sunday) for the Breaking of Bread found in Acts. A new dispensation was brought in as the believers now gathered on Sunday after the Lord Jesus was risen from the dead.

Acts 20:7 And upon the first [day] of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Luke 6

Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath, the Pharisees had questioned the Lord Jesus because His disciples picked corn on the sabbath day when they were hungry. They asked: “Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?” (Mark 2:24). Jesus seeing their hypocrisy answered saying:

Mark 2:25-28 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

God in the Old Testament allowed king David to eat the showbread which was unlawful, but at the time king David was not reigning yet, the Lord Jesus being the King of kings had His disciples eat corn and the Pharisees didn’t show any compassion towards them. One of the great commandments in the law is to “love your neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:34-39; Mark 12:28–34; Luke 10:25–28 ).

4) Christmas, St. Patrick, St. Valentines, Thanksgiving and other man-made holidays are pagan and most have the underlying worship of gods (Sun god Mithra mostly) (Daniel 7:25).

Daniel 7:25

Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Raven’s Revelations talks about holidays as being pagan and then misuses Daniel 7:25 to make her point. The problem is that this verse has nothing to do with holidays, this verse is speaking of the anti-christ which would come in the future.

Paul addressed this issue in the book of Romans, one person may regard or esteem a day while another believer doesn’t.

Romans 14:5-8 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth [it] unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard [it]. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

This argument about holidays is a moot point because there are Christians who don’t celebrate and there are those who do, the important critical issue are not if someone celebrates Christmas. The important issue is who do they believe Jesus Christ is and what the Bible teaches in terms of the foundational truths of the Christian faith.

5) We are on earth because we sinned in heaven and the way to go back to heaven is to repent. We don’t remember anything because we were cut off from the 4th dimension and put on the prisoners’ outfit (our flesh). Where we can no longer fly, or be immortal. (Revelation 12:9, Job 38:4 & 21) Satan was the one to deceive us in heaven and is the reason we are all here on earth, everyone on earth was once an angel and God casted him and us down to earth instead of hell because of His mercy and love. The story of Adam and Eve is about us.

None of the 66 books of the Bible state that humans existed and “we sinned in heaven”, mankind came into existence after the 1st man and woman were created by God in the garden. Humans do not come from angels, how do we know this? Christ became Man, He took onto Himself human nature not angels, we read about this in Philippians and Hebrews.

Philippians 2:5-8 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Hebrews 2:16 For verily he took not on [him the nature of] angels; but he took on [him] the seed of Abraham.

The fist chapter of Hebrews tells us no angel was called God’s Son (Hebrews 1:5). Therefore, we can conclude that Jesus Christ being a Man never took on the nature of angels. Christ became one of us in order to bear our sins in His body.

Revelation 12:9

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 12:9 is speaking of Satan and those angels which rebelled against God and were cast out of heaven. This has nothing to do with Adam or the human race which came from the 1st man and woman.

Raven’s argument is that “we sinned in heaven and the way to go back to heaven is to repent”, by quoting Revelation 12:9 she’s saying humans were cast out of heaven along with Satan. If she wants to take that stance then there couldn’t be any salvation for us if this verse is talking about mankind. Satan is forever condemned along with those who followed him, unless she’s willing to say Satan can be saved?

When reading verses they must be placed in their context and harmonize with all of the Bible. Satan and his followers are eternally condemned and cannot be saved, therefore, this verse in Revelation cannot be referring to mankind.

Job 38:4 & 21

Job 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

The book of Job uses poetic language and in Job 38:4 God is asking Job a rhetorical question, God asked “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?” In other words Job was not there when God laid the foundations of the earth. How can Raven reconcile this if humans were angels and immortal? God disagrees with her and is saying, you were not there when He created the earth.

Job 38:21 Knowest thou [it], because thou wast then born? or [because] the number of thy days [is] great?

The same is true with Job 38:21, reading the chapter you’ll realise that God is questioning Job and proving that Job is a created creature and God is the Creator. Just as the potter and the clay, the clay cannot ask the potter why did you make me like this (Isaiah 29:16; Isaiah 45:9; Romans 9:20)?

6) In the last days (which we are in) God is coming back in the flesh with a new name FIRST, before He comes in fire to judge the world (rapture is not biblical, but a theory)(Hebrews 9:27-28, Rev 3:11-12)

Hebrews 9:27-28

Hebrews 9:27-28 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Verses 9:27-28 contrast between the 2 Covenants, the Torah (the Law) and the New Covenant which Jesus Christ Himself made possible by His sacrifice. The Law condemned sinners to death “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”, the New Covenant introduces the infinite sacrifice of Christ to atone for our sins “Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many”.

The Rapture known in Greek as the harpazō ἁρπαγησόμεθα “shall be caught up” is biblical. In 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Paul says to the believers in Thessalonica told the believers that the Lord Himself will descend from heaven, and call believers to meet Him in the air. This is the harpazō (Rapture) which is also known as a violent snatching away.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Paul reminds us that all believers who are in Christ, those who are asleep (the grave) and alive before the Rapture, will be caught or snatched up into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. This is not something unusual to scripture. Paul was caught up into paradise in 2 Corinthians chapter 12.

2 Corinthians 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

The same Greek word harpazō ἁρπαγησόμεθα is used here as well.

Revelation 3:11-12

Revelation 3:11-12 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name.

Revelation 3:11-12 talks of Christ’s coming and that believers are to remain steadfast, and not to allow anyone to rob them of their crown. Believers will be made overcomers and made a pillar in the inner sanctuary of the LORD. Believers will given a name by the Lord and this Jerusalem is the city which will come down out of heaven, this is not referring to a person called “mother god” but a city “and the name of the city of my God”.

7) Satan runs this entire world, although God is king, the world is Satan’s playground only for a certain amount of time. Satan wants to deceive as many people as he can, even through church and priests, in order to bring as many people to where he is headed when this is all said and done. (John 12:31, 2 Corinthians 4:4)

It’s true that Satan “runs this entire world” but God is only allowing it for a certain duration of time. The important issue is are you in Christ that’s the only place anyone will be safe from the deception of Satan. And WMSCOG is being used by Satan to deceive many people into believing a false gospel.

John 12:31

John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

The world was judged when they crucified the Lord of Glory Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:8), likewise the prince of this world Satan was defeated at Calvary. He tried to stop Christ but instead the Lord Jesus provided a way for all guilty sinners to be reconciled to God through the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins.

2 Corinthians 4:4

2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satan here is called the god of this age, he’s been very successful in keeping people blind to the truth of the Gospel. Keeping them in darkness and away from the the light of the Gospel and the Light of Christ who is the Light of the world (John 8:12; John 9:5). Satan places barriers making it harder for men and women to come to Christ for salvation, cults like the WMSCOG preaches a works based salvation which clearly contradicts Ephesians 2:8-10. Salvation is apart from works (Romans 4:6; Psalm 32:2; Philippians 3:9)

Conclusion

I commend the fact that she (Raven’s Revelations) has a love to want to know God, that’s a wonderful thing. What’s sad is seeing her love and zeal for wanting to know God has lead her astray by a cult. The Bible speaks about this in the book of 2 Timothy, it tells us to beware of false teachers.

2 Timothy 3:5-7 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

I would highly suggest that if Raven really wants to know what the Bible teaches then she needs to step back from the WMSCOG and read the Bible on her own. I don’t know how long she’s been involved with this group but others who came out of it said the longer you stay in the harder it is to learn the Bible properly, because of all the false teachings you have to unlearn. My prayers goes out ti individuals like these because they have been exploited even though she genuinely wants to know who God is.

Jehovah Witnesses “God created Jesus before he created anything else”?

The Watchtower’s position is that Jesus Christ is the first created creature Jehovah made, they cite passages such as Colossians 1:15 and Revelation 3:14 to prove their point. But upon further look does this make sense according to what the Bible teaches? The Lord Jesus clearly stated that He existed before He came to Earth through the virgin birth.

John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

John 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

When discussing the deity of Christ with Jehovah Witnesses they will bring up the word firstborn in Colossians 1:15-17 and this is how it reads in their New World Translation.

Colossians 1:15-17 NWT He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist,

If we take a look at the Watchtower’s Kingdom Greek Interlinear (also found on their website) the deception becomes more clear. This same passage reads:

Colossians 1:15-17 KIT Who is image of the God the invisible firstborn of all creation because in him it was created the all (things) in the heavens and upon the earth, the (things) visible and the (things) invisible, whether thrones or lordships or governments or authorities; the all (things) through him and into him it has been created; and he is before all (things) and the all (things) in him it has stood together.

Why does the Watchtower insert the word “other” when it’s not found in the Greek text, if you read it with and without the word “other” you can see the significance of how the word “other” alters the text to fit with the WT’s view that Jesus is a created creature.

The word “other” is rendered in 2 different ways in the Greek. One is allos and the other is heteros.

ἄλλος állos, al’-los; a primary word; “else,” i.e. different (in many applications):—more, one (another), (an-, some an-)other(-s, -wise).

ἕτερος héteros, het’-er-os; of uncertain affinity; (an-, the) other or different:—altered, else, next (day), one, (an-)other, some, strange.

Looking closely at the Greek text you will not find either one of these words in Colossians 1:15-17. Here’s the Greek text:

ὅς ἐστιν εἰκὼν τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἀοράτου πρωτότοκος πάσης κτίσεως ὅτι ἐν αὐτῷ ἐκτίσθη τὰ πάντα τὰ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς καὶ τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς τὰ ὁρατὰ καὶ τὰ ἀόρατα εἴτε θρόνοι εἴτε κυριότητες εἴτε ἀρχαὶ εἴτε ἐξουσίαι· τὰ πάντα δι᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς αὐτὸν ἔκτισται καὶ αὐτός ἐστιν πρὸ πάντων καὶ τὰ πάντα ἐν αὐτῷ συνέστηκεν

In all other Bibles other than the NWT renders the passage:

Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

According to Colossians verse 15 Jesus Christ is the firstborn of every creature, JW’s claim the word firstborn means Jesus was “created”. If so then how do they interpret Jesus being the firstborn from the dead In verse 18?

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.

The word firstborn in Greek is prōtotokos (πρωτότοκος) which can mean a literal birth, but the word is also used figuratively as well. The context of the passage dictates how the word firstborn is to be interpreted. The rest of the passage tells us that Jesus Christ created all things in heaven, in earth visible and invisible. The Lord Jesus is the one doing the creating, again in verse 18 it says that Jesus would have the preeminence (Superiority).

According to the Watchtower Jesus is the first created creature by Jehovah, if this is so then how did Jesus exist outside of time? Time is created by God and if Jesus is only a “creature” how can a creature exist outside of time, unless He’s God. Additionally, if Jesus was created before the heavens and earth, where did Jesus exist if there was no heaven for him to exist in?

“God worked through Jesus to bring every other creation into existence. This creation included all other spirit creatures, as well as the physical universe.” — JW.ORG

By asking these questions we see how quickly the theology of Jehovah Witnesses doesn’t hold up. It’s not our intention to tear down JW’s but we’re challenging their beliefs in order to make them think. If they would put down the Watchtower magazine and read the Bible (not the NWT), then they might see how wrong the teachings of the Watchtower are.

World Mission Society Church of God teaches there’s a god The Mother?

The World Mission Society of God teaches its members there’s a “mother god” does the scriptures teach such a concept? Unfortunately, many men and women have been deceived into thinking there’s a “god the mother” it’s sad seeing post such as We become children of God Elohim (Father & Mother) once we have the same (Passover) blood then we can go to Heaven!

God is never referred to in the female tense then how are members from WMSCOG deceived into believing such a thing? Like all cults the WMSCOG twist scriptures to get their doctrines into the heads of many people who are lacking understanding of what the Bible teaches.

“Since the beginning of Christianity, we have been familiar with God our Father. We even call ourselves children of God. But why does the Bible say we are children of God? And why did Jesus Christ teach us to pray to God our Father? The existence of a father naturally indicates there are children. Children can only have life if there is also a mother because it is the mother who gives birth. Christ showed us to pray to our Father in heaven because, as children of God, we also have God our Mother. And She is testified in the Bible from the beginning to the end.” — wmscog.com

This quote makes the fallacy of equivocation mistake. The logic used is because humans experience the makings of a family which consist of children who are born from a father and mother, therefore, it makes sense that God the Father would need a “mother god” in order to create. It’s a carnal way of thinking, the WMSCOG creates a humanistic God. They’re trying to reduce the Eternal God of the Bible bringing Him down to our human standard. On the WMSCOG site under “god the mother” they cite a few scriptures stating these are proof of “god the mother” under the heading God the Mother Exists they cite Romans 1:19-20.

Romans 1:19-20 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

There’s no evidence proving any existence of “god the mother” in the above verses. The WMSCOG uses this to allude to their being a “god the mother” in saying it’s a “mystery”. The context of Romans 1:19-20 is speaking of unbelief and the consequences thereof. The unregenerate man looks at creation, he enjoys its sunsets, gazes at the stars, and realises the vastness of the sea. Then he begins to see himself in the true light and where does he fit in all of this? He contemplates how all of this came to be (Job 7:17; Job 15:14; Psalm 8:4; 144:3; Ecclesiastes 6:11; Hebrews 2:6)?

Romans 1:19-20 is telling us that mankind has no excuse when the time comes that we will stand before our Creator to give an account of all that we’ve done in this life. God has given us more than a sufficient amount of evidence for His existence. There will not be 1 Atheist who will appear before the Almighty God and claim that God didn’t reveal Himself to them, because the creation testify’s of the Creator (Psalm 19:1; 97:6).

Another verse they use to argue that the Bible teaches a “god the mother” is found in Genesis.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

All Christians believe in the Godhead, we believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the one God spoken of in Deuteronomy 6:4. Nowhere in the Bible is “god the mother” spoken of, when Christ told the disciples “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” wouldn’t this have been a perfect time to mention “god the mother”?

Yet, the Lord Jesus never mentions anything about any female deity, in Genesis 1:26 Elohim which is the plural Hebrew word for “gods”, it’s also a generic term used for even false gods. In Exodus 32 when the people asked Aaron to “make us gods” the word there is also Elohim. God in His infinite wisdom knew that He was to be distinguished from other “gods” which are not gods at all but idols.

This is the reason Moses asked God saying “Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?” Moses knew that there were many “gods” the Bible speaks of Molech, Baal, Ashtoreth, Chemosh, the heathens often caused the children of Israel to worship false gods. God made sure we knew He alone is the True God telling Moses I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:14). The True God Yahweh wanted to be certain that He was recognisable as the true God among all the idols that littered the land.

If the WMSCOG cannot bring clear scriptures from the Bible to substantiate their claim, then we must reject this false idea of “god the mother” just because as humans we need a male and female to produce offspring. God is not subjected to the laws of creation, He doesn’t procreate which is a blasphemous thing to even insinuate by saying that since believers are children of God therefore there must be a Father and mother.

This is simply not true, we are children of God because the LORD has given us His Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 4:8). If you’ve found yourself part of WMSCOG I highly suggest that you leave and don’t come back, instead go to Jesus Christ for salvation. Jesus Christ is not God the Father, which is another erroneous teaching we will explore, He’s the Son of God who can save you from your sins. God bless.

Christian Vs Hebrew Israelites (Isa 13, 14, 44; Jer 27, 28; Dan 5; 1 Ch 9)

The Black Hebrew Israelites always claim that God is only concerned with Israel and not non-Israelites. They even go as far as to say the word Gentile refers to Israelites who somehow don’t know they are an Israelite and have been living in places in the Bible like Ethiopia, Phenice, Cyprus, Antioch, Seleucia etc. But the Bible is very clear in making distinctions between Israelites and Gentiles.

Passages such as Acts 11 after Peter preached the Gospel to Cornelius a Roman Centurion we’re told that God granted eternal life to the Gentiles in the same way He has given to the Israelites, shows a distinction these Gentiles are not Israelites who were living in these places. That’s not to say there weren’t Jews in other lands but God’s word keeps us from confusion in every occasion when it refers to Jews in another land we read words like synagogue and proceeding are indicators of what land Pisidia in the case of Acts 13:14.

The BHI will refer to Isaiah 14:1-2 and claim that Israelites are going to posses non-Israelites as slaves in the future. Is that what the Bible says, that Israelites will have non-Israelites as slaves or did this already take place? That’s what I’m going to demonstrate here.

Isaiah 14:1-2

Isaiah 14:1-2 For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

This is the jumping off text the BHI use for their argument that they will be given slaves. If we read the verse in isolation it does seem to say that Israel will possess non-Israelites as servants, but we must ask the question is did this already take place?

In the Bible we’re told that Israel suffered 3 major captivities, Egypt, Assyrian and Babylonian. The previous chapter in the same book Isaiah gives us the context to Isaiah 14:1-2.

Isaiah 13:17-19

Isaiah 13:17-19 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and [as for] gold, they shall not delight in it. [Their] bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

Isaiah 13:17-19 says that the LORD “will stir up the Medes against them”, who is “them” in this verse? If we continue on it tells us who the Medes are stirred up against “And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,”. We learn that the Medes otherwise known as the Medo-Persia kingdom were stirred up against Babylon and that kingdom will be likened to when “God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah”. We’ll see how this comes together in the book of Daniel. Continuing on the prophet Jeremiah made a prophecy concerning the children of Israel going into captivity.

Jeremiah 27:6

Jeremiah 27:6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him.

Here we have the prophet Jeremiah telling us that the LORD gave the lands to “Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon”. Also, 2 verses down God says that any nation which rebels against God’s will which is that these nations would put themself under the yoke of the king of Babylon, and if they refused they would be punished. How will God punish them? The LORD says that nation will be punished “with the sword, and with the famine, and with the pestilence” until they have been consumed.

Remember king Nebuchadnezzar was a pagan Gentile who ruled over a Gentile nation called Babylon.

Jeremiah 28:13-14

Jeremiah 28:13-14 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Thou hast broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them yokes of iron. For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

Hananiah makes a false prophecy saying the Babylonian captivity will only last for 2 years and the people rejected Jeremiah as he had told them previously the captivity would last for 70 years. Unfortunately, the people harkened to the false prophecy of Hananiah and suffered for it and Israel went into Babylonian captivity.

Daniel 5:25-31

Daniel 5:25-31 And this [is] the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This [is] the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and [put] a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom. In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, [being] about threescore and two years old.

Daniel gives the account of what happened when Israel was in the land of Babylon, in chapter 5 Belshazzar a descendant of king Nebuchadnezzar made a feast. While they feasted Belshazzar commanded that they bring the golden and silver vessels of worship which were used in the temple by the priest of Israel. The golden and silver vessels were then defiled by Belshazzar as they poured wine into the cups and drank out of them, and while committing idolatry as they “praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone”.

The finger of God writes on the wall “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” and in fear Belshazzar has his astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers to interpret but were unable to interpret what was written on the wall. The queen tells him of Daniel, that he has a gift for interpreting dreams as he has done before for his father Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel is brought before the king and predicts doom for Babylon because of this abomination he committed in desecrating the the golden and silver vessels of the house of God.

Daniel tells Belshazzar his kingdom has come to an end and that the kingdom of Babylon is given to the Medes and Persians. Darius the Median took the kingdom and ruled Babylon once Belshazzar was slain that very night. This was a fulfillment of Isaiah 13:17-19 in which the LORD said He “will stir up the Medes against them” and overthrew them (Babylon) like Sodom and Gomorrah.

Isaiah 44:25-28

Isaiah 44:25-28 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise [men] backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: That saith of Cyrus, [He is] my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

Here’s where it all comes together after the 70 years of captivity king Cyrus a Gentile was raised up by the LORD as a shepherd and by a decree made by Cyrus, the Israelites were allowed to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and city. Not all of Israel chose to return to Jerusalem, Daniel stood behind in Babylon as well as others, only a remnant went back to Jerusalem in order to rebuild the temple.

But not only Israelites returned to Jerusalem, Gentile nations, non-Israelites, would assist returning with them to live in the land. Israel’s former overlords would become bondservants to help in the rebuilding of the city and temple this is recorded for us in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.

1 Chronicles 9:1

1 Chronicles 9:1 So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they [were] written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, [who] were carried away to Babylon for their transgression.

The verse here in 1 Chronicles 9 tells us all Israel was “reckoned by genealogies”, those who returned came back in subsequent waves. Here in 1 Chronicles we’re told that “ the first inhabitants” were “the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the Nethinims”. In Jerusalem we have “Judah, and of the children of Benjamin, and of the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh” which returned.

Here’s the knock out remember Israel would “possess” servants and handmaids, in Ezra 2 we’re given a long list of the rest of the people who returned but in verses 65 it says “Beside their servants and their maids”. and if we read further down to verse 70 it makes a clear distinction that these servants are Gentiles from the time when Cyrus back in Daniel gave the decree for the Israelites to return to their land and rebuild it.

Ezra 2:70 So the priests, and the Levites, and [some] of the people, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, dwelt in their cities, and all Israel in their cities.

And those particular servants and handmaids spoken of in Isaiah 14:1-2 at the beginning of this article are these Gentiles here in Ezra 2:65 who cleaved to the house of Israel and helped in rebuilding the temple and walls of Jerusalem. The BHI would try to argue that this is a future event but as we can see through the plain reading of the text this event has already taken place.

Conclusion

This is the deception of the BHI doctrine, they pull a verses out of context and run with it making an erroneous doctrine out of it claiming they will be able to own non-Israelite people as slaves in the kingdom. The BHI is a man made movement which started on 125th Street Harlem, otherwise known as 1West which is in reference to the address where the movement began.

It’s very unfortunate that there are many people who have been deceived into believing that God cares about a persons ethnicity. And if you’re not born in a specific ethnicity then you’re either part of His chosen people or and if not your condemned; this is obviously not the God of the Bible we serve. God is not concerned about what group of people you’re born into. What He does care about is if we’ve placed our faith in the Son of God Jesus Christ.

Next time we’ll take a look at the history of this cult and the different camps which came out of the BHI movement, until then stay in the word of God and be blessed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Answering Muslim Objections (8)

Every nation had a prophet and was the way to worship God?

Muslim argument: ”For every single nation their prophet was the way to worship God (by following his teachings). In the time of Noah, he was the way. In the time of Abraham, he was the way. In the time of Jonah, he was the way. In the time of Moses, he was the way. In the time of Jesus, he was the way. And finally, in the time of Muhammad, this is his dispensation, his teaching is the only way because he is the last Messenger from God Almighty to all mankind.

Response: Note the false assumption “every single nation their prophet was the way to worship God” nowhere in the Old or New Testament does it state there was a “prophet” in every nation? Prophethood came from Israel not from the other nations.

Muslims believe that each prophet was “the way” in contrast to John 14:6 in which Jesus Christ says: John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. The error of Muslims is they fail to realise that Christ is not saying He is one of the “many ways”, no, He’s saying He’s the Only way. None of the Old Testament prophets claimed to be the way to God. So where do Muslims gather this idea from?

If Muhammad is the last messenger then why it is Jesus is coming back in the future but Muhammad is not? This is evidence that Muhammad is cannot be the “last messenger”. If he was there would not be anyone coming after him. Yet Muslims believe “Isa” (Islamic Jesus) is coming back to destroy the anti-christ which contradicts their belief that Muhammad is the “last messenger”. It’s contradictory to say Jesus is only a man yet according to Islamic sources Jesus is alive with Allah since AD 33 that’s over 2000 years, while Muhammad is dead.

They believe according to Islam Jesus is only a prophet and not God, therefore, they reduce the divinity of Christ to a mere man. While Jesus Christ was indeed a Real Man, He was much more than that He was God in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). There are many scriptures which testify that Christ is the Creator of everything, that He existed with God the Father since eternity past; and that He’s alive forevermore. The scriptures also call the Lord Jesus God Almighty, the Father calls Him God and Jesus Himself says He’s God and lastly the prophets also called Him God.

How do Muslims account for the fact that Jesus would be over 2000 years old, do mortal men live that long? We can see how quickly that argument fails when it comes to saying Jesus is only a man. They don’t know what dispensations are, a dispensation is a stewardship in that how God has ordained certain responsibilities for a specific economy. For instance in the time of the tabernacle one of those responsibilities was the sacrifices and how they are to be conducted through the Levitical priesthood for the Israelites to have continued fellowship with the LORD.

Jesus is one of the mightiest prophets?

Muslim argument: “Jesus (peace be upon him) is one of the mightiest prophets and messengers. Here are the proofs: “But when they tried to arrest him (Jesus), they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet” [Matthew 21:46] People around Jesus (peace be upon him) considered him a prophet.

Response: Christians believe that Jesus Christ occupies more than one office, He’s Prophet, High Priest and King (Messiah). Therefore, citing Matthew 21:46 of Jesus Christ as a prophet doesn’t take away the fact that He’s God. It’s not uncommon for Muslims to remove a verse out of its context in order to prove Christ was not God, but this same verse which follows the preceding verses in Matthew 21 refutes the Muslim argument proving the Christian position. In verse 42 it’s talking about the stone which Israel rejected.

Matthew 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

If we go back into the Hebrew scriptures the Psalmist says speaking of the LORD (Yahweh):

Psalm 118:22-23 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner. This is the LORD’S doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.

In Isaiah we have God saying He is the stone:

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [stone], a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Pointing out that Jesus Christ is a Real Man doesn’t disprove the Christian position (1) Christians believe Jesus is a MAN why do the Muslims ignore the above text in regards to the deity of Christ? They want to except verses which speak about the humanity of Christ while ignoring the deity of Christ. This is called a double standard. (2) Christians believe Jesus is a PROPHET but it doesn’t remove the fact that the scriptures say Jesus Christ created the heaven and earth (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:10-11).

How can Allah be Al-Haqq if he deceives?

Muslim argument: “The truth is crystal clear. I’m confident in my belief. Allah is Al-Haqq. (True one) Good that you’ve learnt a name of Allah. Learn more. You’ll find answers for many questions of Christianity in Islam.”

Response: How can Allah be Al-Haqq if Allah calls himself the greatest of deceivers, someone cannot be called the Truth if they tell lies and dabble in deception.

And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah. — S 3:54

The English translations are actually deceptive in the Arabic the word is not “planners” the word in the Arabic is Makr وَمَكَرَ and if you check the Arabic dictionary the following words associated “cunning”, “deceptive”, “scheming”, “guile” and “slyness”. These are the words that describe Allah as being the best of deceivers.

The Lord Jesus Christ is never deceptive because He’s without any sin, therefore, He is The Truth which proves He’s God because only God is the source of all truth.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Pray for Muslims to come to know who Jesus Christ is the Saviour of sinners, because they are without the One who offers them eternal life. May the Lord Jesus Christ open the eyes of Muslims that they would receive salvation.
