Jesus Christ Prayed Like A Muslim?

One of the polemic arguments Muslims pose to Christians is that Jesus Christ “prayed like a Muslim” if you’ve never heard this assertion you might become confused. Well, fret not because we’re going to prove without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord Jesus Christ was not a Muslim.

The 1st argument is that Jesus Christ while praying fell on His face, Muslims believe this is evidence that Christ is a Muslim. They read the words “fell on his face” and automatically believe Jesus Christ and others found in the Bible prayed like Muslims.[1]

Matthew 26:39

A few things to point out in this verse, when the Bible speaks of falling on their face it refers to a person laying face down on their stomach, not praying in the same prostration Muslims perform. Another point is in Matthew 26:39 and other verses Jesus Christ is calling God His Father, while Muslims are not allowed to call Allah father. Here are some verses in the Qur’ān which prove that Allah is father to no one.

Surat l-ikhlāṣ (Sincerity)
19:93 Surat maryam (Mary)
5:18 Surat l-māidah (The Table spread with Food)

When Christians pray we call God Father because through the new birth according to the Lord Jesus we’re made children of God (Matthew 5:9, Luke 20:36, John 11:52). The apostle Paul following in the steps of Christ also said we’re the children of God (Romans 8:16, Romans 8:21, Galatians 3:26), additionally, the apostle John also proclaimed that believers in Christ Jesus are children of God (1 John 3:10, 1 John 5:2).

Christians also pray in many ways, we also fall on our face (lay face down), get on our knees, look up to heaven and even pray sitting down. The importance is not on how you pray but just that you do pray. The fact that we call God Father distinguishes us from Muslims.

2nd point is Jesus Christ prayed “looking up to heaven” this destroys the claim that Christ was a Muslim as there are Hadiths which say your eyes will be snatched out if we look toward the sky during prayer.

Sahih Muslim 429 Chapter: The Prohibition On Lifting Ones Gaze To The Heavens When in Salat

If this Hadith is authentic, why weren’t the eyes of Jesus Christ snatched away when He prayed looking up to heaven? Many Christians including myself have on multiple occasions looked up to heaven while praying, and what do you know we still have our eyes.

Matthew 14:19
Mark 7:34
Luke 9:16

Here we have 3 verses which speak of the Lord Jesus Christ looking up to heaven while He’s praying, Muslims don’t look to heaven when praying. This is solid evidence that Jesus was not a Muslim.

Conclusion

When we examine the Muslim claim against what the Bible says we see that all the lies of Islam die, without lies Islam dies. Jesus Christ called God Father, and the Qur’ān prohibits anyone from calling Allah, father. The Lord Jesus also gazed heavenward while praying this is something Muslims do not do while praying.

[1] The remainder of this article will examine passages from various books of the Bible and compare them to the way Muslims pray. The most recognisable posture in the Muslim prayer is touching the forehead to the ground. It is the apex of a person’s prayer and it is mentioned in the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad as the position in which a believer is as close to God as it is possible to be. “The nearest one comes to his Lord is when he is kowtowing.” Consider the following verses from the Bible. “And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed…” (Matthew 26:39) Aisha Stacey (2014, September 15). MUSLIM PRAYER POSTURES FOUND IN THE BIBLE.

“You Have Indeed Done an Extremely Evil Thing” The Story of al-Khidr (Pt 1)

A Muslim site called “Calling Christians” is maintained by an Abdoool by the name of Ijaz Ahmed. Like all Muslims, he tries his best to attack the Bible and destroys Islam in the process. We’ll go through some of his quotes and answer them.

If God is love (1 John 4:8), why are babies sent to burn in hell forever if they’re not baptised? How is this ‘loving’?

10 Christian Riddles

In summary, Pharoah instructed Shiphrah and Puah to murder newborn Hebrew male babies. They did not follow through with the order as they feared God. They let the boys live. The Phraoah found out that they did not complete their task and summoned them to answer for their failure. They feigned innocence and ignorance by deceiving the king that they could not reach the women on time when they gave birth. Their lives were clearly spared by their deception and God rewarded them for their deed without reproaching their lie in any way. Is this not a clear example of dissimulation?

The Bible teaches and promotes dissimulation

According to Surah 18:74, a story in the Qur’ān, Musa (Moses) is sent to learn from a man called al-Khidr. They come across a little boy who al-Khidr killed by cutting the little boy’s throat and smashing his head against a wall. Moses exclaimed he (al-Khidr) killed an innocent soul and accused him of doing an extremely evil thing.

sūrat l-kahf 18:74
sūrat l-kahf 18:74 Tafsir

The reason the boy was killed was due to fear of him becoming an “unbeliever.” This means the boy did nothing wrong, yet was killed on the assumption he would become an apostate. The gruesome details explain how this boy was killed, his throat was cut, and his head was torn off and smashed against a wall? Moses had enough sense to say you’ve killed an innocent soul (in this instance a young child).

sūrat l-kahf 18:74 Tafsir
sūrat l-kahf 18:80

Here’s the tafsir confirming that this little boy didn’t practice rebellion, it’s not like he was disobedient and was killed because of it (even though that would be evil as well). No! He was already destined to become an apostate. How can Allah be the most merciful but decree for a boy to be killed who committed no wrong yet? Both al-Jalalayn and Ibn Abbas are provided to prove the point that this was an evil unjust act.

The Tafsir of al-Jalalayn and Ibn-Abbas state that if this boy were to have had the opportunity to become an apostate, he would have negatively impacted the rest of the Muslims. And this was the “justification” for killing the boy, Allah is insecure in that he has a man to kill an innocent boy because he thinks this boy will cause others to leave Islam.

sūrat l-kahf 18:80 Tafsir
sūrat l-kahf 18:80 Tafsir

What’s more shocking is that Islam teaches determinism, in other words, Allah is the one who determined for this little boy to become an apostate! That’s how satanic the god of Islam is, let’s provide evidence from their sources.

Sahih Muslim 2657b

If Allah decrees (fix) a man to commit adultery then why wouldn’t Allah also decree for this boy to become an apostate in order to have him killed? This is the evil of Islam, an unjust god who creates a person to be disobedient and then wants that individual killed for disobeying Allah when in reality they’re obeying Allah. This is ludicrous and completely illogical. Read the ramblings of Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid when he was asked the question:

Is it correct for a sinner to excuse his falling into sin by saying that this is what Allaah has decreed for him?

Ruling on citing al-qadar (divine will and decree) as an excuse for committing sin or failing to do obligatory duties
Ruling on citing al-qadar (divine will and decree) as an excuse for committing sin or failing to do obligatory duties

In other words, the individual is unaware that Allah decreed for him to sin, therefore, this is proof of a person’s will? Regardless if this is unseen or not Allah loves sin and causes them to do so.

Also, if Ijaz wants to be consistent didn’t Allah kill babies in the flood during the time of Nuh (Noah)? This story can be found in a few places in the Qur’ān like Surah al-‘Ankabut 29:14-22, Surah Nuh 71:1-28 and Surah Hud 11:25-89.

Surah Hud 11:40
Surah Nuh 71:25

There’s no teaching in the Bible which says babies go to hell because they are sinners,[1] babies because of the fall when Adam sinned are not sinless they inherited a sinful nature from birth. But they have not personally committed any sins to be accounted guilty of before God.

In Islam, Allah kills little children who haven’t sinned! Islam is a nonsensical religion for those who have no functioning brain cells. Here’s a hadith from Sahih Muslim which goes against the claim that Islam doesn’t teach babies are punished for sin and sent to hell.

Sahih Muslim 2662c

Aisha said to Muhammad there’s happiness for the child, which is a bird in paradise, as this baby didn’t commit sin. Muhammad tells her that this is not the case, babies are made for paradise and hell before they are born still being in the father’s loins.

Let us not forget Ijaz Ahmed said “If God is love (1 John 4:8), why are babies sent to burn in hell forever if they’re not baptised? How is this ‘loving’?” The Bible never says people (in this case babies) go to hell because they are not baptised. I wonder if he will change his mind and recant what he said, or will he continue to spout his nonsense and remain a massive hypocrite?

Conclusion

Muslims like Ijaz Ahmed are no different from the rest who try with their deceptive dawah to trick people into believing the nonsense in the Qur’ān. When we challenge their claims it’s abundantly clear all of the arguments they bring hold no weight, not only do they hold no weight but you find the hypocrisy in their beliefs. They say you believe a man is God yet Allah has body parts like a man and will come to Muslims in a shape they will recognise, massive hypocrisy! This is only part one stick around for part two to experience the comedy of the religion of Islam. And as always we don’t hate Muslims, we are only here to share the truth with them so that they may have their eyes open and come to Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour for eternal life (John 3:16).

[1] One of the questions people ask before they read my book is this: “If infants are not guilty of sin, then why do some infants die? Isn’t death a result, or wage, of sin?” That is a great question. Death is a result or wage of sin. And some infants die. But it does not follow that their deaths are a result of either personal or inherited guilt. Instead, death is the result of God’s universal judgment against sin. Even infants can be caught up in the horrible effects of living in a fallen world. Consider one example of the death of an infant in Scripture: David’s first son. Second Samuel 11 details the awful events of David’s adultery with Bathsheba. David’s cover-up ended in the death of her husband, Uriah. In chapter 12, the prophet Nathan confronted the king with a story that ended with the accusation, “You are the man!” Struck by that truth, David admitted his sin. God forgave David but announced that there would be severe consequences for his actions. One of those consequences was that the child in Bathsheba’s womb would die (12:14). Scripture tells us that the child was born and became sick. David fasted and begged God to spare his son’s life. But the infant died. Question: What sinful action did the infant commit in order to earn the punishment of death? The answer (of course): Nothing. The infant had done nothing wrong. The child didn’t die because of Adam’s sin. The text is clear that the child didn’t die because of his own sin. The child died as a direct result of David’s sin. Our sins can have horrible consequences for other people, including infants. Harwood, Adam. The Spiritual Condition of Infants : A Biblical-Historical Survey and Systematic Proposal.

Sūrah al-Māidah 5:32 (As If He Killed All Mankind)

Have you ever heard Muslims say that Islam is a religion of peace? There are 2 types of Muslims the first one is fully aware that Islam teaches war against unbelievers, and that Muslims are not to take Kufir as friends. I’ve experienced this firsthand and these are followers of Muhammad who are staying true to what Islam teaches.

Groups such as ISIS are practising the true Islam as found in the Qur’ān and taught Muhammad the most obvious false prophet in history. The second group are Muslims who are genuinely sincere but are ignorant of the teachings of Islam, especially reverts who never looked into Islam for themselves.

While speaking with Abdoools they may quote Sūrat 5:32 sūrat l-māidah to prove Islam is a religion of peace, they might be as mentioned ignorant or purposefully trying to deceive people.

Sūrah 5:32 Prescribed For The Jews

Notice the first initial words at the start of verse 5:32 “For that cause We ordained for the Children of Israel”, so this verse is prescribed to the Jews, not Muslims. Continuing on the verse says “whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”.

Surah al-māidah 5:32

I see why Muslims run to this verse to prove Islam is peaceful, the problem is this is not a command to the Muslims this was commanded for the Jews. Now, this verse was taken from the Mishnah, therefore, how can this be from Allah when the Mishnah is not from the Torah or the Injil?

Mishnah Sanhedrin 4

In this second quote please note the Mishnah is speaking of the situation between Cain and Abel recorded in Genesis 4:10.

Tractate Sanhedrin: Chapter 4

This is only found in the Bible, yet why are Muslims using this verse claiming Islam is about peace when it’s talking to the children of Israel? Muslims are not children of Israel, and again this is prescribed to the Jews according to the Qur’ān not the Muslims.

Genesis 4:10

Islam is not an Abrahamic faith, only Judaism and Christianity are Abrahamic, Christianity started with Jews as the first believers in Jesus Christ were Jewish. Remember Muslims claim they are from Ishmael which also is not true according to Genesis 25:1-6, Arabs are actually descendants from Keturah.

Genesis 25:1-6

Sūrah 5:33 Prescribed For the Muslims

Notice the vast difference between 5:32 and 5:33 as it goes on to speak of killing and crucifying others who happen to be non-Muslims.[1]

Surah al-māidah 5:33

Listen to what Muslims are supposed to do to those who are against Allah and Muhammad? “they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land.”, do these words sound peaceful? Cutting off limbs and crucifying people is the complete opposite of peace.

Conclusion

Why do Muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace and try to pass off a verse commanded to the Jews and show people who are ignorant of what Islam teaches? It’s either out of pure ignorance or to be deceitful. In the West, most people are extremely ignorant of Islam, but sites like these are here to speak the truth about Islam, that it would be exposed for what it is, that it’s a demonic religion.

[1] Meanwhile, Muslim crowds worldwide were hardly condemning the attacks. Besides the now-infamous Palestinians dancing in the streets for CNN’s cameramen at the news that the World Trade Center towers had collapsed, demonstrators around the world chanted their approval. These people were not all Wahhabis or uneducated mobs. “Reporters from Arab shores,” according to Johns Hopkins University professor Fouad Ajami, “tell us of affluent men and women, some with years of education in American universities behind them, celebrating the cruel deed of Muhammad Atta and his hijackers.” A Libyan told the New York Times: “September 11 was the happiest day of my life.” As crowds chanted their approval of bin Laden’s terrorism, even imams who condemned the terrorist attacks declined opportunities to condemn also the imams who approved of the attacks— a fact with enormous significance for the Bush/Blair attempts to portray the terrorists as a fringe group within Islam. Soon after September 11 , for example, Jake Tapper of the Internet magazine Salon tried to get the communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an American Muslim named Ibrahim Hooper, to speak out against Osama bin Laden. Hooper ducked: “We condemn terrorism, we condemn the attack on the buildings,” Hooper said. But why not condemn bin Laden by name, especially after President Bush has now stated that he was clearly responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks? “If Osama bin Laden was behind it, we condemn him by name,” Hooper said. But why the “if ” why qualify the response? Hooper said he resented the question. And what about prior acts of terror linked to bin Laden? Or that bin Laden has urged Muslims to kill Americans? Again, Hooper demurred, saying only that he condemns acts of terror. Both groups [CAIR and the American Muslim Council] also refuse to outright condemn Islamic terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

Paul destroyed Jesus’ religion? (Response)

One thing I appreciate about Muslims is the overabundance of comedy they provide, you can find an endless array of articles showing a lack of knowledge on their part. The strawman arguments and nonsensical rhetoric are astounding! Nonetheless, we care about Muslims and are taking every single argument captive and making it subject to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5

This Abdoool by the name of Dr. Haque who runs the site Always Truth! wrote an atrocious article on the Apostle Paul, let’s go through all of his claims to see if they hold up to scrutiny?

So called “Saint” Paul had been the bitterest enemy of Jesus throughout the life of Jesus according to Encyclopedia Brittanica! After Jesus (PBUH) temporarily left this world his enmity to Jesus continued and also against his true followers and his message; only it took a more clever, more shrewd turn; to kill Jesus teachings & message through inventing Jesus worship.

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

It’s true that Paul was a bitter enemy of Christ here we would agree, even Paul admits he went around killing Christians as Saul (Act 22:4, 26:11, 1 Corinthians 15:9, Galatians 1:13, 1:23). What this Abdoool won’t mention is how Paul was converted when he encountered the Risen Christ on the road to Damascus.

This Abdool (Dr. Haque) tries to deny Paul but let’s get him busted quickly from his Qur’ān. According to sūrat yā sīn 36:13-17 we’re told that 3 Messengers in total were sent to the city of Antioch.

sūrat yā sīn 36:13-17

The first two messengers that were sent are Sham`un (Peter) and Yuhanna (John), the people denied them and a 3rd messenger was sent. The name of the 3rd is Bulus (Paul) according to their own scholars. We’ll provide the tafsir from Ibn Kathir who says Paul was this 3rd messenger.

Surah 36. YaSin Ayah 13

Dr. Haque doesn’t know his own Qur’ān as Kathir says Paul was a messenger of God. He also claims Paul “invented” worship of Jesus Christ. Let’s put that argument to rest as well. In John’s Gospel which was written before Paul’s letters we read how the disciples worshipped Jesus Christ and called Him God. One of the more known passages is doubting Thomas (John 20:28).

The context: Christ was crucified and buried the disciples were hiding from the Romans and Jewish leaders. Christ appeared to the first time but Thomas was not present. The disciples told him that Jesus appeared to them, but Thomas didn’t believe and said unless he saw the holes in Jesus’ hands and feet he wouldn’t believe.

The doors were shut as they stood in one of the disciple’s home (John 20:19) Jesus Christ appeared to them a second time, this time Thomas was present.

John 20:26-29

Thomas called Jesus his God! In Greek the wording is even more powerful Thomas says ὁ κύριός μου καὶ ὁ θεός μου (The Lord of me and the God of me) is the literal meaning in Greek. A challenge to the Abdoool Dr. to refute what the Bible says here. Even the Qur’ān shows that Jesus is God as he is called the word of Allah [4:171].

Barnabas companion of Paul brought him to James and Peter

… The closest despises like St. Barnabas and James strongly rejected Paul’s claims of divinity of Jesus and also his fabrication of original sin and Jesus being died for our sins.

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

The Abdoool Dr claims Barnabas and James rejected Paul. Notice how no references are given, Paul in the book of Acts which is written by Luke the physician says that they (Peter, James and John) sent Paul and Barnabas as beloved brothers.

Acts 15:25

Both Paul and Barnabas were representatives of the teachings of the apostles, therefore, they were all in agreement and taught the same doctrine. They gave Paul the right hand of fellowship found in the book of Galatians.

Galatians 2:9

See how the Muslim argument cannot stand against the truth, they can lie as much as they like, like their prophet but it will not benefit them as we continue to demolish the lies of Islam.

Called Christians first in Antioch

The people who did not buy Paul’s claims were called Unitarians. The word Christianity was not there yet! Rabbi Paul did not try Jews to convert to his faith, rather his all efforts were to lure Non Jews wrongly called Gentiles which in Hebrew means bastard!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

Nowhere in any of the manuscripts will you find the word “Unitarian” this is a lie. But we can show you in the Bible the word Christian, also the word Gentile doesn’t mean bastard. These Muslims have no honor and will lie non-stop.

Here is one of 3 verses which mentions the word Christian(s) but this Abdoool would have people to believe otherwise.

Acts 11:26

Next are 2 definitions for the word Gentile in Hebrew and Greek, none of them mention anything about the word bastard.

Lexicon Strong’s gôy
Lexicon Strong’s ethnos

Do you see the deception dawah missionaries will try to get away with? This is Islam, lies and deception!

Paul Never Taught Christians To Commit Sin

Paul made his religion very delicious by saying Jesus paid for all your sins so feel free to commit these sins thus nullifying all the teachings of Jesus and all other true Prophets whose main purpose was to cleanse the society of crimes, sins, injustices, exploitation, oppression and suppression of common people! Paul also promoted the idea that kings and rulers are from God so don’t oppose them thus cementing king-clergy bond to exploits common people!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

First look at the lie from this Abdoool, can you show us a reference Mr. Haque where Paul says Christians are allowed to commit sins? I would like a reference from the Bible otherwise you are lying.

The Lord Jesus was the first one to say He would give His life as a ransom paying for the sins of the world. And only those who accept the free gift of salvation will be saved. Those who reject it will only do so to their own detriment. Read the words of Christ.

Matthew 20:28

References of Pagan Practices

On the other hand Paul gave clergies blackmailing power. After knowing the “sins” and crimes of common people the clergy were able to exploit the “sinners”. He even allowed adoption of pagan practices such as making pictures and statues in the Churches.

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

Another lie from the Muhammadian, a challenge to Dr. Abdoool to provide a reference that shows Paul said it’s ok to make pictures and statues. There are none! And he knows it, but his prophet indeed adopted pagan practices. Allah was worshipped by the pagan Arabs as one of many polytheistic gods found around the Kaaba.

Muhammad was french kissing stones, this is a practice from the pagan Arabs.

Musnad Ahmad 99

Muhammad was circling the Kaaba which is another pagan practice from the pagan Arabs, as they were worshipping the planet deities.

Sunan an-Nasa’i 2954

Verses in the Qur’ān provide proof the name Allah existed in pre-Islamic Arabia. Certain pagan tribes worshipped a god whom they called ‘Allah’ and whom attested to being the creator of heaven and earth, holding the highest position among the gods. The Quraish and other tribes believed in Allah, whom they believed as the “Lord of the House” (Kaaba). It’s clear that the Qur’ānic conception of Allah is not new.

Paul Taught The Same As Jesus’ To Love Our Enemies

This “sweet religion” later emerged as Christianity, in particular trinity type of Christianity. It attracted a lot of followers as it had backing of both kings and the corrupt, self serving immoral and unethical clergy. The Trinitarian Christian’s then started killing Unitarians who were actual true followers of Jesus. This topic is well covered by Ahmad Thompson in his book “Blood on the Cross”!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

Once again this Muslim cannot prove anything from the Bible. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ told us to love our enemies, we don’t hate Muslims.

Matthew 5:44

The same was taught by Paul the Apostle following in the footsteps of Christ, while there are many verses from the writings of Paul, we need only show a few to get the point across. Paul echos the words of Christ in Romans 12:14 telling believers to bless our enemies (εὐλογεῖτε τοὺς διώκοντας ὑμᾶς εὐλογεῖτε καὶ μὴ καταρᾶσθε)

Romans 12:14

Paul once again admonishes the believers in Rome telling them to feed and give drink to our enemies. These are the same teachings of Jesus Christ provided above in Matthew 5:44, as well as in Luke 6:27, 35.

Romans 12:20

The apostle Paul taught not to return evil for evil but to return good even if your enemies give evil. Even Paul is way above Muhammad.

Romas 12:21

Muhammad taught hatred and evil let’s show just a few examples found in the Islamic sources. First, let’s observe what the Qur’ān has to say about non-Muslims?

sūrat āl ʿim’rān 3:28

Muslims are forbidden to have non-Muslims as friends, we read this here in verse 3:28 and also in 5:51; 98:6 calling us “the worst of creatures”. Muhammad said he will expel the Jews and the Christians from the Arabian Peninsula.

Ibn Kathir in his Tafsir on verse 3:28 says Allah calls for the Muslims to curse non-Muslims in their hearts while pretending to be friends.

Ibn Kathir 3:28
Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1606

These are teachings of hate from Muhammad, there’s nothing Islam has to offer that is good. Even the verses which Muslims try to pass off as good are not verses speaking to the Muslims but to others. Paul was superior over Muhammad and taught love not hate.

Allah the Unjust god

Paul’s letters comprise about half of New Testament and his teachings more than half of all teachings of present day Christianity! His theories were ridiculous! Why the God, the King of kings can not forgive without sacrifice? Who can stop Him doing so? In Islam for example there is no concept of unforgiven original sin. Adam and Eve made mistake but they felt ashamed and the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful God forgave them when they repented. Every infant born is absolutely innocent and if a child dies he will go to paradise no matter in which religion he or she is born!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

Muhammad said babies go to hell

(1) “Why the God, the King of kings can not forgive without sacrifice?” God has prescribed the conditions on how mankind was to have atonement for sins.

Leviticus 17:11

This concept of sacrificing to God is not foreign to the Qur’ān as Abraham was given a sacrifice for his son (in the Qur’ān that being Ishmael instead of Isaac), we can find this in sūrat l-ṣāfāt.

sūrat l-ṣāfāt 37:104-107

Therefore, Muslims are completely unaware that this concept of sacrifices was taken from the Bible and used in the Qur’ān. We can find the actual story in Genesis 22, for our purposes we’ll show the relevant passage.

Genesis 22:10-13

The angel of the LORD who’s known as God in the Old Testament is the one who called out to Abraham, the Qur’ān says “We” as in Allah called out to Abraham. Since the Qur’ān claims to confirm the scriptures before it namely the Torah and Injil, that means the Qur’ān is saying the angel of the LORD is God. As you very well see how the Qur’ān fails once you compare it to the word of God the Bible.

(2) “In Islam for example there is no concept of unforgiven original sin.” This is untrue, Adam and Moses debated on this subject in which Moses tried to blame Adam for getting humanity kicked out of Jannah. Adam said it was not his fault as Allah written his fate and it was something that had to happen as it was already decreed by Allah that Adam would sin and thereby get kicked out of Jannah.

Sahih al-Bukhari 6614

(3) “Every infant born is absolutely innocent and if a child dies he will go to paradise no matter in which religion he or she is born!” Not according to their prophet who says children go to hell in Sahih Muslim 266c.

Sahih Muslim 2662c

God Came Into the World to Save Sinners

Paul degrades the God all Might when he preaches, god nurturing in a human’s womb, being persecuted and being hanging on a cross! Why the God all Mighty will inflict Himself with such insults and Misery! These theories do not make any sense at all and that’s the reason many by name Christians do not believe in these and many revert to Islam that gives very logical and true answers to all these questions and remove all confusions and shows the straight path of success in both worlds!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

The reason why Muslims cannot understand Christianity is because in Islam there’s no concept of justice, atonement or love. Allah has no love, the Qur’ān teaches Allah only loves those he chooses to love and hates those he chooses to hate. It seems his love or hate is in response to human behavior.

sūrat āl ʿim’rān 3:140

Allah is a distant god who doesn’t desire a loving relationship with his creation, Allah is too proud to bring himself to our level. Allah is too proud to bring himself to our level.

sūrat l-anʿām 6:18

Allah is limited in his abilities, he cannot enter his creation, have a son or become a man, therefore, he’s not almighty. The moment you say that God “cannot” or question his ability means he’s not almighty, Allah is incapable of having a son because he NEEDS a wife in order to procreate like all humans according to sūrat l-anʿām.

sūrat l-anʿām 6:101

Allah the Deceptive god

At. Barnabas had described in his gospel that it was not Jesus who was crucified but rather the traitor disciple who took bribe from the enemies of Jesus and brought Roman soldiers to arrest Jesus, his face was transformed to look like Jesus. This also explains ridiculous behavior while carrying cross and hanging on cross!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

It was Allah who tricked people into believing Jesus was crucified, this is tantamount to deception as the Qur’ān says Allah is the best of deceivers.

sūrat l-anfāl 8:30

Qur’ān is Not Preserved

The God all Mighty the Creator and providers of all of the universe and whatever it contains and beyond not only protected and saved Jesus physically but also his message and life in the final divine book i.e.; Quran. Quran is thus the absolutely authentic place where one can visit Jesus, his virgin mother who never married or dated anyone, his grand mother and other relatives!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!
Sunan Ibn Majah 1944

This Abdoool said Allah’s message was protected yet in the Hasan (good) Hadith Aisha said that the verse of breastfeeding an adult 10 times and stoning was revealed to Muhammad but a sheep ate those verses. We want to know where those verses ae if the Qur’ān is preserved, can they recite the verse of breastfeeding?

If they can recite it I challenge any Muslim to provide the recitation of these verses. I guarantee they not one single Muslim can recite these verses. This means the Qur’ān has not been preserved.

The Qur’ān’s Conflicting Views With Science

Quran is the living miracle as it is the only book in the world that is preserved and ever fresh in its original language over 1450 years. It’s absolutely immune to the effects of time. It’s dust and rust free, word by word from the God and no conflict with science because writer of Quran and Science is One and the Same! There are no 2 versions of Quran. You go to any country and any mosque you will find exactly the same Quran.

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

He says the Qur’ān is not against science, let’s check this claim to see if it’s true. The Qur’ān describes how procreation works between a man and woman in sūrat l-ṭāriq.

sūrat l-ṭāriq 86:5-7

In this verse what is the “gushing fluid” spoken of here? According to their scholars, this is sperm which man is created from, this is how the Tafsir describes it. al-Jalalayn says in his Tafsir.

al-Jalalayn 86:6

The gushing fluid spoken of here is sperm and this sperm is coming from the man AND the WOMAN. This is completely against modern science as women cannot produce the sperm needed to fertilize an egg.[1]

Scienceline.UCSB.Edu

Ibn Kathir says in his Tafsir on Surah 86:6 that the sexual fluid bursting forth from BOTH the man AND the WOMAN creates a child, make note of the highlighted portions provided.

Tafsir At-Tariq 86:6

We’ve just read from a medical journal that women produce eggs not fluid which creates a child. It’s the egg of the woman and the sperm of a man that produces a baby. In Islam Allah is saying the white fluid from the man and the yellow fluid from the woman is what makes a baby. This is completely false! Are Abdoools saying that Allah doesn’t know how a baby is made?

That’s not all because Ibn Kathir also says that this sperm which comes from the woman is coming from her chest! Here’s another medical site which tells us that sperm cells are male gametes and function to find the female gamete in order to fuse together. This process happens when sperm enters the female sex organ through the male sex organ.

Medical News Today

The article also says that sperm is made in the testicles, the male reproductive organs, not the female but the male.

Medical News Today

What Islam teaches is completely against science so how can this Abdoool say that science supports the Qur’ān?

Qur’ān Was Translated And Forgotten

For something to be accepted as authentic it must be in its original language word by word from the God in its original language! Translations can never be equal to original! Even one word and one paragraph could be translated in so many ways! Only and Quran fulfills this condition and therefore it makes a perfect sense that Quran is the final divine book who is also entirely memorized by heart by millions!

How did Paul destroy Jesus’s religion!

Being that Mr.Haque rejects translations I guess he has nothing because even the Arabic Qur’ān was forgotten. Sahih Muslim says they used to recite a Surah that resembled Bara’at, but it was forgotten. Reading the words “and I have forgotten it”, shows that they don’t have the Qur’ān.

Sahih Muslim 1050

In the second highlighted portion it says there was a surah that resembled Musabbihat and it was forgotten, only a small portion was remembered. Again how does this help the so-called “perfect preservation” of the Qur’ān? Muslims don’t have the Qur’ān, the majority of Muslims recite the Qur’ān according to Hafs an Asim not according to Muhammad.

Conclusion

As you can see this Abdoool was busted and has nothing, he tried to attack Paul the Apostle but in his own books it says Paul is a messenger of Allah, and he taught the same as Jesus Christ. Paul was accepted by the Apostles Peter, James and John and was commissioned to preach the Gospel by the Lord Jesus Himself. Unfortunately for Dr. Haque Muhammad was a pagan who kissed black stones and worships a false god called Allah. The Qur’ān is not preserved and Islam is completely removed from science as it claims women produce sperm.

Muslims come to Jesus Christ only He can save you, start reading a better book which is the Bible. By trusting in the true God of the Bible only then will you make it to paradise.

Footnotes

[1] Women don’t produce sperm because they do not have the Y chromosome, which possess a gene that tells the body to produce male features. Humans, like all mammals, have two separate sexes. Most animals have two different sized games, where one sex produces a few large egg and the other sex produces lots and lots of smaller sperm. The theory is that this is to maximize the nutrients the young start with, the large energy rich egg, and the likelihood that the egg will get fertilized, using lots of sperm to ensure one makes it.

Why I Came To Islam? (Susie Brackenborough)

One trend you’ll find among Muslims is pretending to be Christian, saying they “reverted” (converted) to Islam, in order to dupe people into believing in Islam. Once you start to examine if this is true you’ll soon realise that it’s a farce. Susie Brackenborough is one such person who’s written an article for Islamonline.net claiming to have been a follower of Christ only to leave and become a Muslim. Either she’s being deceptive or just really ignorant of what true Christianity is, you can be the judge.

I Couldn’t Actually Say Why I Was Christian?

Being a practicing Christian for almost 16 of my 22 years of life, it may seem strange as to why I have turned to Islam. Not so I say! I was asked one day to “prove Christianity and why you are a Christian and not a Muslim” by a Muslim friend at university. I thought that this was going to be an easy task, but I couldn’t actually say why I was Christian, only this is the way that I had been brought up by my family. My research needed extensive reading and questioning. I would say to everyone who reads this whether Muslim or not – ‘ASK YOURSELF WHY YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU DO.’

Why I Came To Islam?

There’s a huge red flag, Susie said she was a “Christian” for 16 years, yet she was only “Christian” by name being brought up by her family. This is not what constitutes being a Christian, being born into a family which professes to be Christian doesn’t make a person Christian. It’s like saying sleeping in an air hanger would make someone an aeroplane. It’s quite telling that someone who would make this statement knows absolutely nothing about Christianity.

To answer her question of why I believe what I do, is that the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the best historically attested event which stands against every criticism. There’s no one who has been able to debunk the Death and Resurrection of Christ.

The next few quotes from Susie prove she has no idea what Christianity teaches about Jesus Christ or any of the fundamental doctrines we hold.

So why wasn’t I satisfied with Christianity? Anybody who is going to really believe in something must know something about it. If I said to someone that a Porsche could go faster than a Skoda, for them to accept that fully they must have knowledge of what a Porsche and a Skoda are, otherwise if they accept what I say without knowledge they are living a life of ignorance and/or arrogance. Anybody who wanted to know the truth and why they agree to or follow a particular way would seek out why. So for me to accept Christianity I needed the knowledge about the fundamentals – the belief that Jesus (AS) was the son of God and that the Trinity existed are two fundamental points. It is not good enough just to accept this, as you believe what has been taught to you. For someone without knowledge about cars, the Porsche may indeed go faster than the Skoda in reality, but if I was a so called knowledgeable and respected person and I taught them that the Skoda is faster than the Porsche, then I would be believed by people who have not questioned what these two cars are really like and they take my word as they think that I have knowledge. But they would not be believing the truth.

Why I Came To Islam?

She admits she lacks knowledge about the Lord Jesus or the Trinity, these are the 2 biggest points of contention when Christians engage with Muslims. The issue is that the Qur’ān gets both wrong here are past articles that explain how Islam gets it wrong.

The Poo Poo of Allah and Muhammad (Trinity)

Jesus is God According to Qur’ān

We’re going to clear up Susie’s confusion starting with her first question.

The Son Of God And The Trinity … Is It Not Made Explicitly Clear In The Bible?

I believe that religion is not here to confuse us in any way and the message of Allah (SWT) is very clear; so my first question is – if Jesus (AS) is the son of God and the Trinity was what Christian people believe it to be, why is it not made explicitly clear in the Bible?

Why I Came To Islam?

While the word Trinity is not in the Bible, the word Tawhid is not in the Qur’ān, but the teachings/concept of the Trinity is certainly in the Bible. In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 3 John the Baptist was asked by Jesus Christ to baptise Him. John shocked by the request immediately says “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” (Matthew 3:14).

Jesus tells Him that it’s necessary to fulfill all righteousness (Matthew 3:15), John then baptises Him and we’re introduced to the Trinity.

Matthew 3:16–17

Notice in one moment in time we have all 3 Persons of the Trinity present (1), Jesus Christ, in the water (2) the Spirit of God also known as the Holy Spirit (3) a voice from heaven which is God the Father. How can Susie claim to have been a Christian for 16 years have she never seen this passage before? There are others, but let’s go to the Qur’ān to further prove our point.

In the Qur’ān we have a Trinity a false one but 3 nonetheless who are creators. Muslims agree that Allah is the creator, but what do they say to the fact that Allah admits he’s not the only creator.

23:14 sūrat l-mu’minūn (The Believers)

This verse according to their own book claims that Allah is not the only creator, what do I mean by creator? Just to make it clear we’re not talking about someone making a painting or building a table etc. Muslims try to claim Allah is comparing himself to humans as “creators”. No! This is not what’s being spoken of here in this ayat. Allah is saying there are other creators (gods) but Allah is the best of all the other gods.

Additionally, the word l-khāliqīna as a genitive masculine noun showing possession. The genitive case focuses on the active participle “of” is what’s important, in this context Allah being the best of the creators.

23:14 Arabic grammar, syntax and morphology

So this means Susie’s god is not the only god according to the confession of Allah which makes Islam a polytheistic religion.

Was Jesus The Only Begotten Son Of God?

Was Jesus (AS) the only begotten son of God? No, quite clearly not. Long before Jesus (AS) was born, David (AS) said in Psalm 2:7, ‘I will declare the decree, the Lord hath said unto me, Thou are my Son; this day have I begotten thee.’ So, David (AS) is also God’s begotten son??!!!

Why I Came To Islam?

David is not “the only begotten son of God” and neither was anyone else called the Only begotten Son of God as Jesus Christ is. Just for your own perusal, these are some translations of Psalm 2:7 and in none of these translations will you see the word “only”.

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (KJV)

“I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. (NKJV)

The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. (NLT)

I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. (NIV)

I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. (ESV)

I will declare the LORD’s decree. He said to me, “You are my Son;[fn] today I have become your Father. (CSB)

Notice in none of the translations provided will you find the words “the only begotten son of God” in Psalm 2:7. But the Bible does say about Jesus Christ that He alone is the only begotten son of God. These are the relevant verses.

John 3:18

The Greek used for Jesus is τοῦ μονογενοῦς υἱοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ let’s break it down. The word τοῦ is a variation of the article and is a genitive singular masculine which means (of the) showing possession. The following word μονογενοῦς is also an adjective genitive singular masculine word which means (only begotten). We then have υἱοῦ a noun genitive singular masculine and means (Son), lastly, we have θεοῦ which is in the genitive case and means God.

The two following verses also say Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, so where is Susie getting her information from? It’s certainly not from the Bible.

John 1:18
1 John 4:9

Seems like Susie either never read the Bible or she lied claiming that there were others called the only begotten Son of God. But we’ve just proven that her statement is untrue.

He’s not the Son of God?

What is this?!! Jesus (AS) himself made clear that he is not the son of God. For example, Matthew 5:48, ‘Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfect.’ So God is everyone’s father. Luke 4:41, ‘And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered not to speak for they knew that he was Christ.’ Luke 9:20-21, Jesus (AS) said to his disciples, ‘But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, “The Christ of God! And he straightly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing.’ If Jesus (AS) was the son of God, then why should he tell his disciples not to tell anyone this if everyone is to know and learn and believe this? The only explanation is that they were wrong to call him this and he was telling them so.

Why I Came To Islam?
Matthew 5:48

Seems like Susie is going against the Qur’ān using Matthew 5:48 to say that God is everyone’s Father. According to her Qur’ān, it says Allah is not the father of anyone, we can find this in Surah 19:88-93; 112:3

sūrat maryam 19:88-93
sūrat l-ikhlāṣ 112:3

Why did she say Allah is everyone’s father when the Qur’ān says he’s not father to anyone is it out of ignorance or deception? Also, Jesus said He came down from heaven and He’s the Son which speaks of the deity of Christ.

John 3:13
sūrat āl ʿim’rān 3:52-55

Susie makes the claim that Jesus was telling the disciples not to tell people He’s the Son of God, but that’s not true. Jesus was saying not to let people know because it was not His time to come as King even though He already was. Jesus knew He had to come as the Lamb of God who would give His life on the cross for the sins of the world, that was His main purpose for His first advent.

If the people knew He was the Christ (Messiah) they wouldn’t have crucified Him. And if He was not crucified then there would be no salvation for anyone. The second point is that if the disciples were wrong according to Susie, then Allah’s message was corrupted. Let’s not forget the Qur’ān says the followers of Jesus would be superior until the day of judgement. If the message of Jesus was corrupted then Allah failed in making the believers of Jesus superior until the day of judgement as 3:52-55 says.

In the words of Jesus Christ, He said that He’s the Son of God, read and laugh Abdoola. Why did she not read this verse, I thought she was a Christian for 16 years and she never read these verses?

John 10:36

Associating others with God

Secondly the concept of the Trinity. Associating others with God, i.e. to believe in the Trinity has no foundation whatsoever in Islam. In Mark 12:29 Jesus (AS) himself said, The first of all Commandments is, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord.’ 1 Corinthians 8:4 ‘there is none other God but one.’ The truth about this mater is that the word ‘Trinity’ is not Biblical at all. The Canon’s answer was as follows: ‘The New Testament writers did not create the doctrine of the Trinity. It is an attempt, admittedly human (how could it be otherwise?), to express in words something of the inexpressible.’ This just sums it up. A human attempt to describe something inexpressible because it doesn’t exist!! Perhaps the clearest indication we have that Jesus (AS) and God are not equal, and therefore not one and the same, comes from John 14:28 when Jesus (AS) is quoted as saying: “My Father is greater than I.” When someone referred to him as good master in Luke 18:19 Jesus (AS) responded, “Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is God.” Furthermore, Jesus (AS) drew clear distinctions between himself and God when he is quoted to have said, John 8:42 “I proceeded forth and came from God, neither came I of myself but He sent me.’ Jesus (AS) gave clear evidence of his subordination to God, rather than his equality with God, when he said in Luke 22:42, “not my will but Thine be one” and in John 5:30, ” I seek not mine own will but the will of the Father which has sent me.” That Jesus (AS) would admit that he did not come into the world on his own initiative but was directed to do so, that he would acknowledge another being as greater than himself, that he would negate his own will in deference to affirming the will of another gives clear proof that Jesus (AS) is not the Supreme One and therefore Jesus (AS) is not equal to or even God.

Why I Came To Islam?

It’s sad these arguments Brackenborough is spouting are the same weak arguments from dawah missionaries. Let us go through each to show how flawed Islam is.

Mark 12:29

Christians believe in 1 God (Deuteronomy 6:4) not 3 as Muslims set up Red Herrings and bring fallacious arguments, all Christians affirm belief in 1 God. All 3 Persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) are the 1 God as they are of the one essence of God. They are co-equal in Genesis the word Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) which is a plural word.

We’re in agreement that God created the world spoken of in the first verse of Genesis, in the second verse the Holy Spirit was also involved in the making of creation “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2). Lastly in John 1:1 the Word (Jesus Christ) also created the world, the proof is in verse 3 “All things were made by him” that is all things were made by Jesus Christ. All 3 were involved in the creation of the world.

We substantiate that Jesus is the Word of Allah in the Qur’ān [4:171] “The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word”.

sūrat l-nisāa 4:171

There you go the Qur’ān says Jesus is the Word of Allah, Muhammad copied this from the Bible without knowing what the Word of God meant.

She mentioned 1 Corinthians 8:4, let’s point out her hypocrisy. This goes against the Muslim belief as they claim that Paul was a liar, saying he changed the teachings of Jesus Christ.[1] Yet here she’s taking one of Paul’s writings and saying she agrees with Paul that God is one. This is what Paul said, that is the height of hypocrisy.

1 Corinthians 8:4

Muslims say that Paul is the one who created Christianity and made up a lie about Jesus being God, but this Muslima is using Paul to claim what he’s teaching is correct.

John 14:28 “my Father is greater than I” Muslims love this quote but fail to understand it, Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, He became a real Man who was surrounded by people who were trying to kill Him. This verse is not speaking of the deity of Christ as being “lesser” than the Father.

John 14:28

The Father was in heaven, therefore, technically speaking the Father was in a greater position than the Son as He (the Father) is untouchable in heaven. While Jesus was on Earth as a real Man surrounded by enimies and subjected Himself to everything humans would be subjected to.

She then assumes in Luke 18:19 that Jesus Christ is saying He’s not good? Talk about not knowing the scriptures, if you read again Christ is asking the rich young ruler a question. In essence He’s asking the rich young ruler a rhetorical question “are you calling me God because only God is good”[2]

Luke 18:19

This verse actually goes against the Islamic claim and rejection of the deity of Christ, even though in their own Qur’ān Jesus can do things only Allah can do. First, Jesus is called pure in other words he’s Holy, in the Arberry translation he translates it “a boy most pure”.

sūrat maryam (Mary) 19:19

In case there’s any doubt that this is what the verse says here’s the word for word syntax of this particular verse. Notice it says speaking of Isa “a son pure”.

19:19 Arabic grammar, syntax and morphology

So Jesus is pure and Holy, additionally he was able to speak from the cradle in the Qur’ān, no one else was able to accomplish this, the verse I’m referring to is Chapter 3 sūrat āl ʿim’rān. Not only is he pure, Holy and will speak from the cradle but he’s also called righteous.

sūrat āl ʿim’rān 3:45-46

Unfortunately, Muhammad is never spoken of in the same way as Jesus even in the Qur’ān. Let’s not forget that Jesus in the Qur’ān is the word of Allah, a spirit from Allah, Muslims cannot give an answer for 4:171 as Jesus is a spirit from Allah and his word. There’s also a verse that says Jesus heals the blind and lepers and is raising people from the dead.

sūrat āl ʿim’rān 3:49

That’s not all he also knows the unseen and can tell you what you hide in your house. This means Jesus has the same ability as Allah as in verse 2:33 Allah sees the unseen.

sūrat l-baqarah 2:33

How is it Isa knows the unseen just like Allah, Isa can create life like Allah, he’s a word and spirit from Allah, and has the ability to speak from the cradle and is called Holy. These are all traits or attrubutes of God.

In John 8:42 Jesus Christ says He came from God, meaning He (Jesus) came from heaven, this corresponds to 4:171 in the Qur’ān which says Jesus is a spirit from Allah. Even though we don’t believe Isa is the true Jesus but Muhammad didn’t know what he was saying.

sūrat l-nisāa 4:171

The Qur’ān says Jesus is a spirit from Allah, and he is a word from Allah sent to Mary, some of the other Muslim translations read:

Sahih International “His word which He directed to Mary

Pickthall “His word which He conveyed unto Mary

Yusuf Ali “His Word, which He bestowed on Mary

Shakir “His Word which He communicated to Marium

Muhammad Sarwar “His Word, and a spirit from Him whom He conveyed to Mary.

Mohsin Khan “His Word, which He bestowed on Maryam

Arberry “His Word that He committed to Mary

Here’s the verse in John where Christ says He came from God, providing evidence that Jesus Christ is eternal. No one else can make this same claim.

John 8:42

This ties in with another verses where the Lord Jesus said He came down from heaven. I wonder how Abdoools would respond to these words from Jesus Himself?

John 6:38

John 6:38 proves that Jesus preexisted His incarnation this is why He can say He existed before Abraham. It’s a hard pill for Muslims to swallow. She mentioned Luke 22:42 and misquoted it, the word is “done” not “one”. She assumes that because the Father sent the Son that this somehow discredits Jesus Christ being God.

Luke 22:42

Let’s think about this logically, if a father told his son to go to the store for him does this in anyway indicate that the son is no longer human because the father sent him? No! That would be insane and silly to claim such. This is what Muslims do, they think because Jesus was sent by the Father this means He’s not God. As we’ve just showed this has nothing to do with the deity of Christ.

She mentioned John 5:30 indicating that Christ sought the Father’s will. The will of the Father is not different from the will of the Son as they are the One God, they work in complete union together.

John 5:30

Therefore, it’s not strange for Christ to say He wants to do the will of the Father. Jesus Christ is not rebellious and never sinned and will do what He was sent to do. This verse corresponds with Luke 22:42.

The Bible is a collection of 66 Books

The Bible is a collection of 66 Books covering two thousand years of history written over nearly a thousand years. Inaccuracies and contradictions are likely to occur as it was not kept pure and the language changed. It could be said that the Bible is a book of ‘Chinese Whispers’ in that the message had been passed on, in some cases, from eyewitnesses to their associates. Original manuscripts can change as they are copied out. Existing original material is almost non-existent. No entire original documents have survived. The language is untranslatable as time has changed the language and so earlier languages of the Bible cannot fully be understood. All there are are copies of the Gospels written hundreds of years after the original writing.

Why I Came To Islam?

It’s funny that Susie says the Bible has “inaccuracies and contradictions” yet her prophet said he believes in the Bible, which means Muhammad believes in the inaccuracies and contradictions according to her.

Sunan Abi Dawud 4449

I would like her to answer when was the Bible corrupted, was it before Muhammad’s time or during his time? Her claim of corruption goes against Allah, as he said none can change his words, as the Torah and Injil according to the Qur’ān are Allah’s words.

sūrat l-anʿām 6:34

Other verses which speak no one being able to change Allah’s words are surah 6:115, 10:64, which means Allah is incapable and not powerful enough to protect his books. Let’s not forget all of the contradictions found in the Qur’ān, I’ll link to some articles which lays this argument.

Qur’ān Contradiction How many Angels Appeared to Mary?(Q19:17, 3:42)

Comparing Arabic Qur’ān Versions Verse 9:66 (Hafs, Qaloon, Al-Bazzi)

Allah doesn’t know what he created first (Quran contradictions)

Just like every other Muslim Susie speaks of something she has no knowledge of, in order to change an ancient manuscript the process would be impossible as we would be able to detect where those “changes occurred”.

In order for this to happen they would have to gather all existing manuscripts in the entire world. Not an easy task as they were distributed to different churches (Antioch, Corinth, Ephesus, Thessalonica, Rome, Colosse) not to mention any other place not recorded.

We’re talking about thousands upon thousands of manuscripts. Then in order to change the text, a pumice stone would be used. Using a pumice stone would cause damage to the manuscript itself. Lastly, we would be able to make out what text was laid down before the pumice stone was used. It’s just not physically possible.[3]

The nail in the coffin is that the Qur’ān was the book not preserved, we have up to 40 different Arabic Qur’āns with different words and meanings. Plus there are missing verses in the Qur’ān like the breastfeeding verse eaten by a goat. Here’s the article speaking of the unpreserved Qur’ān.

The Qur’ān is Not Preserved According To The Qur’ān!

Conclusion

Here’s the sum Susie Brackenborough has no clue what she’s talking about just like every Muslim. She has learned these nonsensical arguments and is parroting them. According to what we learned she was never a born-again Christian. While the word Trinity is not found in the bible the teaching is, but the word Tawhid is not found in the Qur’an.

The Lord Jesus is the ONLY Begotten Son of God and He is the Son of God. He’s called the Word of God found in both the Bible and Qur’an meaning He’s eternal. And the Bible has been preserved as we have plenty of manuscript evidence while the Qur’an has none! We’re calling Susie to come to Jesus Christ for salvation as He is the Living Word of God.

Footnotes

[1] Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: The first one to introduce the innovated view that ‘Ali was infallible and that he should have been the caliph on the basis of religious texts was the leader of these hypocrites, ‘Abdullah ibn Saba’, who was originally Jewish, then pretended to be Muslim and aimed to corrupt the Islamic religion as Paul had corrupted the Christian religion.

[2] Ironically, Jesus withholds the anticipated answer. Does Jesus sense that the questioner, like the Pharisee in the previous parable (18:11-12), is overconfident or disingenuous? “Why do you call me good?” responds Jesus. “No one is good — except God alone.” The Greek me (v. 19, “me”) in the rhetorical question is positioned emphatically at the front of the sentence, “Why do you call me good?” Plummer calls the ruler’s address of Jesus “extraordinary,” for in Judaism God or Torah are rightly called good, but not rabbis. Jesus does not affirm his goodness but implies that his goodness is the goodness of God, the source of all goodness, working in him: “The Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees the Father doing” (John 5:19). Given Jesus’ servant posture and reticence regarding his messianic status, he directs the ruler unambiguously to God. “No one is good — except God alone” could also be translated “except the one God,” thus directing the ruler to the Shema (Deut 6:4).

Many of these variants simply involve a missing letter in a word; some involve reversing the order of two words (such as “Christ Jesus” instead of “Jesus Christ”); some may involve the absence of one or more insignificant words. Really, when all the facts are put on the table, only about 50 of the variants have any real significance– and even then, no doctrine of the Christian faith or any moral commandment is effected by them. For more than ninety-nine percent of the cases the original text can be reconstructed to a practical certainty. Ron Rhodes (2022). Manuscript Evidence for the Bible’s Reliability.

Response to Madinah Van Video (Christian Religious Studies Teacher Learns About The Bible An Islam Part 1)

The purpose of this blog is to (1) reach out to Muslims who are stuck in the cult of Islam, to show them that only through Jesus Christ can they have salvation. As Jesus Himself said there’s no other way to heaven except through Himself (John 14:6). And (2) to inform Christians on how to respond to the Muslim claims against Christianity as there are unfortunately many Christians who are ignorant of the teachings of Islam.

This video shows such an intercation between a Christian woman and the Abdoools of Madinah Van who had to gang up on a woman. But they don’t dare to debate a Christian who has knowledge of what their Qur’an teaches. You can view the weak attempt from Medinah Van here and see how we destroy their silly arguments against the Bible.

Was Jesus Sent To Israel Only?

“He was not sent to the whole mankind”

Christian Religious Studies Teacher Learns About The Bible And Islam Part 1

Muslims typically claim that Jesus was only sent to Israel, this is not true. If they knew the context of scripture they wouldn’t make this mistake. Christ was sent to Israel first and then the Gentiles. He came to bring salvation to the entire world not only Israel, the following verses prove this point.

John 3:15

The Gospel of John chapter 3 verse 15 says that anyone (whosoever) believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life. If language is how we are to communicate then the word whosoever (πᾶς) means exactly what it means anyone regardless if they are a Jew or Gentile.

πᾶς (pas)

If we parsed πᾶς so that we know how the word functions in John 3:15 we’d get:

Speech: Adjective
Case: Nominative
Number: Singular
Gender: Masculine

After parsing the word we know the subject (Nominative) is personal in Number (Singular) meaning anyone willing to trust in Christ can come to Him for salvation. It’s personal, between you and your Creator.

The following verse 1 John 4:9 explains that God sent the Lord Jesus into the world (κόσμον) for us that we would live through Christ. The world doesn’t encompass the Jews only, in fact, the Jews are a very small minority when compared to all the other nations in the world.

1 John 4:9
κόσμον (kosmos)

Jesus came for all mankind including Muslims who are willing to place their faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Only those who do so will make it to heaven, the others who deceive and reject the salvation Jesus offers will find themselves in grave trouble on the day of judgement. As they will face Jesus as their judge, not their Saviour.

We then have the teachings of Paul in which the Abdoool on the video claimed apostle Paul taught contrary to Jesus Christ. Here we have in 2 Corinthians 5:19 Paul said Christ was reconciling the world to Himself. This is in line with the 2 verses above.

2 Corinthians 5:19
καταλλάσσων (katallassō)

To reconcile (καταλλάσσων) is to bring onto Himself, and that’s what Christ did at the cross of Calvary, He was atoning for the sins of the world. That’s the wonderful message that He gave Himself for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2).

Once again Paul who taught the same as the Messiah said Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (ἁμαρτωλοὺς). Muslims are sinners, and so is Muhammad, unfortunately their prophet is suffering in hell for rejecting the salvation only Jesus can provide.

1 Timothy 1:15
ἁμαρτωλοὺς (hamartōlos)

Let’s continue demolishing the lies of the Dawah Van, as we see Christ came for the whole world not only Israel as the Abdoool said.

The truth was “for” Jesus?

“We believe that Jesus He was upon the truth, the Way the truth and the Life was for Jesus”

Christian Religious Studies Teacher Learns About The Bible And Islam Part 1

The Lord Jesus Christ was the one who brought not “a” truth but the Truth, He is that truth! In John 14:6 Christ authoritatively declared this to those who were around.

John 14:6

It’s wonderful that we have the New Testament in the original language and if you’re capable of reading Greek would know that the word ἡ ἀλήθεια has the article which means The Truth. If Jesus Christ is the source of all truth then this would be a claim of deity as only God is absolute truth. We find in the Qur’an that Allah is called the truth, this is not looking good for the Muslims.

22:62 sūrat l-ḥaj (The Pilgrimage)

If we take the words of Jesus Christ with what the Qur’an is saying this means Jesus claimed to be Allah, but we already know that Allah of the Qur’an doesn’t exist. If we take a look at the Arabic text and review the nouns used in this verse we’d see.

Arabic Syntax and morphology

The accusative word l-laha is an accusative noun pointing to Allah and the nominative masculine word l-ḥaqu is the subject of the verse. The same as in John 14:6 Jesus is the subject of the verse ὁ Ἰησοῦς (nominative masculine). What in the world are the mutah boys of Dawah Van going to do with this one?

Clearly, the Qur’an says objectively states God is the truth and Jesus in the Bible (John 14:6) which was written hundreds of years before the Qur’an says Jesus Christ is The Truth. This destroys the Islamic claim in which Muslims reject Jesus as God.

The Comforter is Muhammad?

“If I don’t go the comforter will not come and when the comforter comes He’ll mention of me He’ll tell you many things to come and we believe that comforter is prophet Muhammad”

Christian Religious Studies Teacher Learns About The Bible And Islam Part 1

This claim from Abdoools is beyond silly when they claim Muhammad is the comforter they are essentially saying Muhammad is their god. In the same chapter in which Christ says He’s The Truth an attribute only God possesses. Now He tells us who the Comforter, the Holy Spirit is.

John 14:26

Notice in the same verse Christ identifies who the Comforter is saying He’s the Holy Ghost who the Father will send in the name of Jesus Christ (“my name”). Do Muslims believe Muhammad came in the name of Jesus Christ? No they do not, but they do believe Allah sent him (John 14:6). Additionally, in Islam Muslims claim the “holy spirit” is Jibril.

If the Comforter is another name for the Holy Spirit how can Muhammad be the comforter? Let’s prove this nonsense and get them busted. According to one of their trusted websites, Islamqa here’s what they say about Muhammad being supposedly found in the Bible.

These two verses [1] indicate that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel (the Bible), no matter how much the Jews and Christians claim that he is not, for the word of Allaah is the best and most truthful of words.

Is the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) Mentioned in the Bible?

They then quoted a few verses from the Bible for the proof of Muhammad’s existence in the Bible one of those being the Gospel of John 16:6-8, 12-13. These same verses refute the claim of Muhammad being the comforter as the comforter is sent by Jesus Christ notice the words “I will send him unto you”.

John 16:6-8

But in Islam Muhammad is sent by Allah, how can Abdoool reconcile this other than admitting Jesus Christ is Allah. They also claim Muhammad is “the Spirit of truth” the problem is the Spirit of truth is going to glorify Jesus. Again notice the words “He shall glorify me” in verse 14 this is Jesus speaking.

John 16:12-14

Unless they’d like to admit Muhammad is sent by Jesus and will glorify Jesus Christ there’s no getting around these verses.

Jesus Never Mentioned He’s the Son of God?

“he never in a single entirety of the Bible He never called Himself the Son of God.”

Christian Religious Studies Teacher Learns About The Bible And Islam Part 1

This is not looking good for the guys at Dawah Van, in the video, the Abdoool said Jesus never called Himself the Son of God. The term Son of God was mostly used by others declaring that Christ is the Son of God, and Jesus Christ never rejected this He always accepted this title. Here we have Christ referring to Himself as the Son of God in John 5:24-26.

John 5:24-26

The Lord Jesus is the one speaking in this passage, notice the personal pronouns “I”, and “my”, went as far to say those who are dead would hear Jesus’ voice and come out of the graves. This can only mean that Christ by the power of His word/speech can bring people back from the dead. This is a claim of deity as there is no one else who can do this.

Again Jesus in speaking to the blind man, He gave him sight mentioned if the blind name believed on Christ as the Son of God. This was after the Pharisees banned the no longer blind man from worshipping in the temple.

John 9:35

We easily demolish Muslim arguments here on this blog, they don’t stand a chance against God’s true word the Bible. Here’s the nail in the coffin of the Dawah Van mutah boys, in John 10:36 there’s a great discourse between the religious rulers and Jesus Christ.

In John 10:30 Jesus made this statement which caused the Jews to have a meltdown saying “I and my Father are one.” The reaction from the Jews says it all as they picked up stones to kill Jesus as they knew He was claiming equality with God the Father, that’s why they said He’s making Himself God.[2]

John 10:30-36

Jesus said that His anything the Father can do Jesus Christ can do, in plain terms anything God can do Jesus can do because He’s God. Notice the Jews accused Christ of blasphemy and Jesus said how can that be because He (Jesus) said He’s the Son of God. So why are Dawah Abdoools lying when they said Jesus never said He’s the Son of God? That’s because Islam teaches you can lie.

Conclusion

Here we back up our claims with proof but if you notice as you watch their video they jump over important points. They love to quote John 17:3 which actually proves once again Jesus is God because this verse is saying that Jesus along with the Father is the one true God. It’s a conjunction bringing the two objects of the verse together (ἀληθινὸν θεὸν καὶ ὃν ἀπέστειλας Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν). I’ve bolded the καὶ which is the conjunctive word and both θεὸν and Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν are in the accusative singular.

[1] al-Saff 61:6, al-A’raaf 7:157

[2] (10:31-9) The evangelist continues to stress that Jesus is God’s Son. w. 31-3, first in v. 33 the Jews indicate blasphemy as the reason why they want to stone Jesus (cf. Lev 24:16). As in 8:59 it is an attempt to kill him without official trial. In the synoptic tradition Jesus is accused of blasphemy when he forgives sins (Mk 2:5-7 Par), and when he speaks of the coming Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power (Mk 14:62— 4 par.). Probably all propositions that questioned God’s uniqueness were considered as blasphemy in Jesus’ time (cf. 5:18). Ironically the Jews speak the truth: for the evangelist Jesus is in a certain sense ‘God’. ‘Good’ is used in 2:10 of the wine, and in 10:11,14 in reference to the shepherd. The good shepherd is sent by the Father, and therefore his work exhibits the Father’s goodness (cf. v. 25). w. 34-6, Jesus uses an argument afortiori: if the Scripture refers to those who received the word of God as ‘gods’, the one whom God has sanctified cannot blaspheme when he says that he is God’s Son.

Silly things Muslims say # 2 (Shan Khan)

One of the most ridiculous arguments from Muslims is the claim that the authors are “unknown”, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are liberals who claim the writers of the Bible are unknown and Muslims and other enemies of the Gospel use this to discredit the Bible.

Unknown Authors?

First let’s prove how silly this argument is, from the Muslim’s perspective their own sources say the Torah and Injil are from Allah. That would make Allah the author of the Torah and Injil which makes up the Bible, of course, we don’t believe Allah sent us the Bible as we don’t believe he exists. But for Muslims, they’re against Allah saying those books have unknown authors. Wouldn’t the author be Allah?

3:3 At-Talaq

To answer the Abdool we do know who wrote the books of the Bible, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote the Gospels, the text of the Bible attests to this fact. Paul wrote Romans, Ephesians and others. Peter wrote 1st and 2nd Peter, James and Jude. We also have the five books of Moses Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. David wrote the Psalms as well as a few others. We actually have names of authors who wrote these books.

If we ask Muslims who wrote the Qur’an, they say, Allah, so Allah came into his creation and wrote a book called Qur’an? We’re told that Allah cannot enter his creation, therefore, it’s not logical to claim Allah wrote the Qur’an. The question remains who wrote the Qur’an we need names but of course, they cannot provide any.

Mark 7:27

Another false claim is that Jesus in Mark 7:27 was somehow disrespecting a woman, just as this Abdool stated in his comment. Let’s get him busted to prove Muslims don’t know anything about the Bible, they don’t even know their own book. In the Gospel of Mark Jesus was approached by a woman Syrophenician by nation, she asked Jesus to cast out devils from her daughter.

Mark 7:26

This Muslim tried to focus on Jesus saying “dog” to this woman in verse 27, let’s bust this Abdool. This is an English translation, in Greek, the word used by Jesus was not one of insult, in reality, it was a word of endearment.

The word used in the text is κυναρίοις and the root word is κυνάριον (kynarion), this is a neuter noun. And the immediate context of the word is generated puppy or little dog. Nowhere in this verse is Jesus Christ insulting this lady as this Abdoool would like for us to believe.

κυνάριον (kynarion)

This was an endearing term used by Christ toward the Syrophenician woman. The reason and context of the word used here are to contrast the relationship between the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews were the first to receive the grace and revelation from God, their Messiah was there in their midst and they failed to realise Him.

Then we have a Gentile woman who exercised faith in the Lord Jesus asking Him to heal her daughter from demonic possession. The Gentiles were to receive the message of salvation after the message was relayed to the Jews. This is why the bread and table are mentioned, the dog receives food from the table after those who are at the table eat.[1]

This lines up with what Paul the apostle wrote in the book of Romans, how the Jews were given the message and God then had the message brought to the Gentiles. We can find this in Romans chapter 1 verse 18.

Romans 1:16

Mark 7:26-30 is a picture of salvation for all who trust in Jesus Christ. But where’s the compassion for women in Islam? Unlike Muhammad who said the majority of women will be in hell fire.

Sahih al-Bukhari 3241

Here we have Muhammad saying the majority of women will be in hell, which means all the Muslima will end up in hell-fire according to their prophet. What’s the point in following Islam if you’ll end up in hell anyway?[2]

To further prove the point that women have no place in Islam we’ll include a quote from Shaykh Assim Al Hakeem who has his show Ask Zad.

“The concept of equality is also something that we have a lot of the women and the men thinking that this is a prime concept in Islam, women and men are equal. This is totally unIslamic, this is totally wrong it’s not even logical how can they be equal? In Islam in the Qur’an Allah says clearly and a male is not similar to a female, they’re different.” — Ask Zad

Are men & women equal in Islam? – Assim al hakeem

Conclusion

As you see this is how Muslims who don’t even know their own religion try to twist the scriptures of the Bible when they speak with Christians. All one has to do is know the surrounding context of the verse and get them busted every time. Jesus Christ never insulted the Gentiles but Muhammad indeed said most women will be in hell. I wonder how Muslimas feel about that?

[1] Jesus’ reply and the woman’s repartee each contain a metaphor. The first is the metaphor of the children and the little dogs. That the girl is likened to a little dog— the similarity in sound between the two words may have led to the comparison— has everything to do with the fact that the episode is about the relation between Jews and Gentiles, and that dogs, particularly stray dogs, are despised and regarded as unclean. 106 Along with the pig, the dog is symbolic of the Gentile, who is often referred to as living like a dog. 107 To call up that image in the presence of a Gentile woman is unfriendly, even crude, but the use of the diminutive relativizes this. These little dogs are not stray or watch dogs but well cared for pets that share the life of the family. The suggested image is that of a well-to-do family, as is confirmed by the circumstance that meals are not served on a floor mat but on a real table, under which the little dogs can find a spot for themselves. 108 The ‘children-little dogs’ relation is a metaphor for the relation between Jews— the children of Israel— and Gentiles. The second metaphor is that of the bread and the crumbs. With this the story remains in the sphere of food and eating that has been so prominent in the two preceding episodes, and also remotely recalls the thematics of the mass meal related in 6.35-44. The metaphor of the bread and the crumbs is an equivalent of the (in comparison with the metaphor, material) loaves and leftovers from that meal. 109 In this sharp verbal exchange Jesus employs this metaphor in an attempt to shrug the woman’s request off with a joke. The Jews come first (πρῶτον). Roman readers who remember what Paul wrote to them will recall Rom. 1.16 in which he says of his ‘gospel’ that it is a power for every one who has faith, ‘to the Jew first and also to the Greek’, words that are repeated twice in the same letter (2.9 and 10). The time of the Gentiles has not yet come. Jesus still has too much to do in Galilee to attend to them. The woman accepts Jesus’ metaphor but adds one of her own, saying that the little dogs are content with the crumbs from the children’s table. What she asks of Jesus— to free her daughter from her demonic obsessions— is so little that the Jews need not miss anything. Jesus recognizes the sharpness and aptness of her retort and gives in.

[2] “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) went out to the musalla (prayer place) on the day of Eid al-Adha or Eid al-Fitr. He passed by the women and said, ‘O women! Give charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the people of Hell.’ They asked, ‘Why is that, O Messenger of Allah?’ He replied, ‘You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religious commitment than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.’ The women asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is deficient in our intelligence and religious commitment?’ He said, ‘Is not the testimony of two women equal to the testimony of one man?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Is it not true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her religious commitment.’” Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid (2022, June 10). More Women in Hell Than Men? Retrieved from https://islamqa.info/en/answers/21457/more-women-in-hell-than-men

According to Islam Jibril is more powerful than Allah!

The staunch stance in Islam is that Allah “cannot” be a man. Time and time again Muslims will take verses out of context from the Bible saying “God is not a man” they partially quote Numbers 23:19. If you read the proceeding and following verses surrounding that verse you’ll have a clear understanding of the context.

Numbers 23:19

Just within the one verse alone we can see that the text is saying God is not like us in the sense that we as humans do lie, God doesn’t lie. We as fallible humans need to repent, the same is not true of God as He is perfect. The second half of the verse says if God says He will do something will he not do it or make it come to past? It’s a rhetorical question and the answer is an emphatic yes!

But we have to bust the abdools in their lies let’s view the surrounding context of the immediate verses. The background of this chapter is The Prophecies of Balaam, Balak the king of Moab called for Balaam to come and curse the children of Israel. Instead of cursing them Balaam blessed them each time and told Balak he must say only that which the LORD has given him.[1] Balaam said to Balak:

How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, [whom] the LORD hath not defied? … And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth?

Numbers 23:8, 12
Numbers 23:17-21

After reading the context we can see that this verse has nothing to do with God not becoming a man. Context is the dagger in the heart of Islam, because the Qur’an is a distorted book which has no context Muslims don’t know how to interpret scripture.

Allah cannot become a man

2:20 Al-Baqarah

If the Qur’an is the ultimate source for Muslims then they are denying what the Qur’an says. It’s clear from this verse that “Allah is able to do all things” But he’s not able to become a man Muslims say which contradicts the Qur’an. That means he cannot do all things.

Here’s one statement from islamreligion.com in which they said:

The claim that God became man is also an absurdity. It is not befitting of God to take on human characteristics because it means that the Creator has become His creation. However, the creation is a product of the creative act of the Creator. If the Creator became His creation, it would mean that the Creator created Himself, which is an obvious absurdity. To be created, He would first have to not exist, and, if He did not exist, how could He then create? Furthermore, if He were created, it would mean that He had a beginning, which also contradicts His being eternal. By definition creation is in need of a creator. For created beings to exist they must have a creator to bring them into existence. God cannot need a creator because God is the Creator. Thus, there is an obvious contradiction in terms. The claim that God became His creation implies that He would need a creator, which is a ludicrous concept. It contradicts the fundamental concept of God being uncreated, needing no creator and being the Creator.

DID GOD BECOME MAN? (PART 4 OF 5): DID GOD BECOME MAN, CAN GOD BECOME MAN?

The moment they said God cannot do something proves they believe in a “god” who cannot do all things. That’s a major conundrum they’ve created for themselves. The Christian argument is that Almighty Yahweh can and did become a Man that’s not out of His abilities. Jesus Christ is Eternal and existed before He came into the world through Mary, we have many scriptures which prove this but one will suffice. Jesus in John 8 was debating the Jews and told them that Abraham rejoice to see His (Jesus‘) day.

They replied saying Jesus was not even 50 and it wouldn’t be possible for Abraham to have known Christ. And the Lord Jesus rocks them by saying “ Before Abraham was, I am”, they knew He claimed to be God, as their mind went back to when Moses spoke to God from the burning bush. The LORD said I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:14)

John 8:58

This is without a doubt one of the most powerful passages which proves the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ and Muslims cannot contend with it.

Jibril is more powerful than Allah and can become a man

Let’s not forget Muslims say Allah cannot become a man for them they think God taking on human form means God would become “weak”. Here’s a statement from an Abdoool site called Calling Christians.

If God is all powerful and man is not all powerful, can God’s nature of being all powerful, change to becoming not all powerful? How can an all powerful God become less powerful?

If Allah is so powerful, why can’t he become a man?

Christians don’t believe God “change to becoming not all powerful”, we believe that God took upon Himself more specifically the Son of God took on human nature. But He did not lose His diety when He became a man as Jesus Christ said He would raise Himself from the dead.

John 2:19–22

If Jesus being God and took on human flesh made Him “weak” according to Muslims, then how is it He’s able to raise Himself from the dead. Does that sound like weakness? Allah cannot even do what Jesus Christ can yet they say such foolishness.

In the Qur’an Jibril has the ability to become a man when he came to Mary (Maryam), this is recorded in Surah Maryam.

19:17 Surah Maryam

So now what are Muslims going to say, Jibril is capable of becoming a man but Allah doesn’t have the ability to become a man. Therefore, if Muslims still want to say that Allah cannot become human logic would dictate that Jibril is more powerful than Allah.

Lastly, Muhammad described Allah as a man in the Hadith when he compared the Dajjal with Allah. Muhammad is busted because the Dajjal is a man, yet he says that it’s possible for the Muslims to be confused thinking the Dajjal is Allah.

Sunan Abi Dawud 4320

Notice Muhammad is telling the Muslims the Dajjal is short, hen-toed, woolly haired and has one eye describing human characteristics. The Muhammad says if they are confused, now let’s stop here why would they be confused if Allah is not a human? Then Muhammad tells them the only difference between the Dajjal (a man) and Allah is that Allah is not one-eyed.

Conclusion

What have we learned, well Numbers 23:19 has nothing to do with God becoming a man the real context is that God doesn’t lie or neither does He need to repent of sins like we do. Allah cannot become human according to Abdoools who contradict 2:20 which says Allah can become a man. Jibril has the ability to become a man while Allah cannot as taught in Islam. And finally Muhammad described Allah with human qualities comparing him to the Dajjal.

[1] God twice meets Balaam and puts a word in his mouth and commands him to return and speak that word (23:5,16). God’s insistence on what he must say recognizes that Balaam does have options. It becomes increasingly clear, even to Balak (23:17), that God reveals through the word, not divination. In the third instance, the spirit of God comes upon him (see 11:17, 2 5~6) without consultation after he ‘sets his face’ and ‘sees’ Israel’s situation (24:2). Balaam speaks God’s blessings on Israel rather than curses. The blessings become less descriptive, more future oriented, and more properly blessings as one moves through the four oracles. Even more, those who curse Israel will themselves be cursed, while those who bless will be blessed (24:9). Prominent throughout is the language of seeing; the one who did not see the purposes of God (22:22-30) now does see them (23:9, 21, 23— 4; 24:3— 4,15— 17). Indeed, the clarity of his seeing increases over the course of the oracles; the most expansive claims are the ‘knowledge’ of 24:16 and the seeing into the future of 24:17. Falling down but alert (24:4,16) may refer to a qualified ecstatic reception of God’s word. Balaam ‘sees’ Israel’s history and God’s promises, moving from the past through the present to a more and more specific future: election from among the nations (23:9); promise (and fulfilment) of many descendants, like the dust of the earth (23:10; see Gen 13:16, 28:14), and blessing (24:9, cf. GEN 12:3); exodus (23:22; 24:8); God’s presence among them and his care in the wilderness (23:21; cf. 24:5-6). He anticipates a successful conquest, as both Israel and God are imaged as lions (22:23— 4; 24:7~9) the rise of the monarchy and specific conquests relating thereto (24:7,17-19). The overall scene for Balaam is a blessed people: numerous, confident, flourishing, powerful, and its king is God. In Balaam’s words (23:io):’let my end be like his!’

Muhammad contradicts all of the Prophets (Musa and Jesus Christ)

The Qur’ān rejects anyone called sons of God, in this context we’re not speaking of biologically being God’s children. But the God of the Bible wants a relationship with His creation, the below verses in the Qur’ān say men and women can only be slaves of Allah. *Note we are distinguishing between Yahweh the true God and Allah the false god of Islam.

Qur’ān says Jews and Christians are not the sons of Allah

Sūrat l-Māidah 5:18

Here in [5:18] the Qur’ān is trying to prove that Jews and the Christians are not “sons” of Allah (take notice that we don’t believe in Allah, we believe in Yahweh), this gives the idea that Jews and Christians are claiming to be the literally children of God. It’s a strawman argument as we don’t believe we are “biological” children of God. Those who are saved are adopted into the family of God (Romans 9:4).

“”We are the children of Allah and His beloved.” Say, “Then why does He punish you for your sins?” Rather, you are human beings from among those He has created. …”

The Qur’ān tries to insinuate that Allah and Yahweh are the same but they are not,[1] it goes so far as to say that the only relationship we have with God is as a slave and nothing more.

Sūrat Maryam 19:88-93

In verses [19:88-93] there’s a double message (1) it’s an attack on the Son of God Jesus Christ and His divinity as well as (2) a renouncement of anyone being called a child of God and all we are is slaves.

And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.” You have done an atrocious thing. … That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son. … that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant.

Let’s bust their false prophet, Muhammad said he believes in the Torah, and the Qur’ān confirms the previous scriptures in the Torah and Injil [sūrat l-ṣāfāt 37:37].

sūrat fāṭir 35:31

This is an apparent contradiction of the Torah and Injil as we will soon see.

Torah says Israelites are the sons of God

The Qur’ān claims it confirms the previous scriptures which came before it according to [sūrat fāṭir 35:31], now here’s where Muslims will claim the original Torah and Injil have been lost. The burden of proof is on them to provide evidence for this claim. The Qur’ān came on the scene way later than the Torah and Injil and we have manuscripts which date back to the 2nd century.

Deuteronomy 14:1

According to Deuteronomy 14:1 God calls the Israelites children of God “Ye [are] the children of the LORD your God: …” As mentioned before this doesn’t mean literal biological children of God. In the Old Testament, this is referring to the nation Israel’s relationship with God who has chosen them as a nation separate from the other surrounding nations.

Deuteronomy 32:6

Deuteronomy 32:6 Tells us that the LORD is as a Father to the children of Israel. “Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? [is] not he thy father [that] hath bought thee? …”

Exodus 4:22

Here in Exodus 4:22 God says the nation of Israel is His firstborn son “… Thus saith the LORD, Israel [is] my son, [even] my firstborn:

Jesus Christ didn’t change the Law, Isa changed the Law (made what’s haram halal)[2]

Matthew 5:17-18

Muslims love quoting Matthew 5:17-18 about Christ not changing the Law when they engage with Christians. But they are not aware that Isa who is supposedly Jesus did change the law according to Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:50. “to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you.”

Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:50

This is wonderful proof showing that Isa cannot be Jesus Christ, as the two are polar opposites.

In the Bible husband cannot go back to his wife after divorce, in Islam husband can go back to his wife

In the Torah, God is against a man who has divorced his wife, and if she marries another man is not allowed to go back to her previous husband as God sees that as an abomination. In other words, is vile in the eyes of God as that woman would have had intercourse with the second man and would be considered defiled.

Deuteronomy 24:1–4

The Qur’ān on the other hand contradicts this as Allah is completely fine with the wife returning to her former husband. It’s clear Yahweh and Allah are not the same God as Muslims would like for us to believe.

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:230

Conclusion

When you compare the two texts it’s abundantly clear that Christianity and Islam do not worship the same God. Also, Jesus Christ is not Isa as they had contradictory actions, one didn’t change the Law while the other did. The only way someone would think they are the same is if they stuck their head in the sand and deliberately did not want to compare the two.

To remain ignorant is the worst thing a person can do to themself. Once you have an understanding of what the Bible and Qur’ān teach you just will not make the mistake and continue to claim they are the same.

[1] When we look at Yahweh, however, who is the God of the Bible, we see a different kind of deity. First of all, the name “Yahweh” comes from the time that God appeared to Moses in the burning bush. At that time God told Moses to call him “I am that I am,” or in Hebrew, “Yahweh.” It is significant that Jesus referred to himself as the “I am” in John 8:58. The Jews realized that Jesus was referring to himself as God and took up stones to stone him for what they believed was blasphemy. This link between Jesus in the New Testament and the burning bush in the Old Testament demonstrates the unity of the one God manifested to both the Jews and the Christians. This cannot be said of the Muslim God because Muslims reject the deity of Jesus and therefore reject much of what the New Testament says about Jesus. We also find that the Bible portrays Yahweh in contrast to Allah. For example, Allah is considered to be too holy to have personal relationships with man, but Yahweh is often described as a loving God interested in our personal struggles. Yahweh is also depicted as unchanging and One who assures the salvation of the faithful. Finally, because there is unity in the Trinity with the one God also being three persons, God can be described as the Father of Jesus.

Contradictions of Muhammad the “Prophet” of Islam in the Sunnah

All the true prophets of God would never contradict themselves, they are bound to tell the truth as they speak on behalf of the Creator of the universe. If you examine the lives of all the prophets it’s obvious that they stand for virtue and integrity, while none of them were perfect they never taught anything sinful.

Regarding Muhammad, Islam’s so-called prophet we see that he taught sinful practices. Some of them are fornication, covetousness, hatred and lying. In this article, we’ll view two contradictory sayings of Muhammad.

Please note that both Hadith’s are graded as Sahih, therefore, they are both authentic and accepted. In Sahih Muslim 2607c Abdullah reports that Muhammad said “It is obligatory for you to tell the truth” this means you don’t have a choice it’s an obligation.

The root word for Obligatory would be Obligation, the definition according to Websters-Dictionary is “the action of obligating oneself to a course of action (as by a promise or vow)”[1]

Sahih Muslim 2607c

Muhammad says Muslims are bound to their vow, they are not to tell any lies as remaining truthful leads to paradise. If one should choose to lie they would lead them to obscenity[2] which then leads to hell-fire. This person is counted as a liar in the eyes of Allah. The above hadith might seem somewhat noble the problem is that Muhammad contradicts himself in the following hadith.

Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1939

This hadith from Jami at-Tirmidhi says that what Muhammad taught was halal (permissible) to lie to your wife, during war and to other people in order to bring peace. This cannot be the teachings of a prophet of God. If this is the case then Muhammad according to his own words in Sahih Muslim 2607c is in hell-fire. It’s not hard to see that he contradicts himself constantly and teaches sinful practices.

According to the Bible, Muhammad is in hell, in the book of Revelation God says all liars will have their part in the lake of fire.[3]

Conclusion

Our duty is to speak the truth, we love Muslims and want them to know the truth of what Islam teaches. We want them to have salvation by coming to Jesus Christ for eternal life by trusting in His death, burial and Resurrection. Only the Son of God can wash you clean of your sins, Muhammad cannot do anything for you. He was a sinful man and a liar, but Jesus Christ never lied and said if you believe in Him you will have everlasting life because He is the Resurrection and the Life[4] trust in Christ if you want to be saved.

Allah Takes Shahada!

Muslims pride themselves in believing that they worship 1 god called Allah, if this is true then is it possible that Allah converted to Islam? How can a god convert to Islam, if Allah converted to Islam this means there’s another Allah greater than him.

Let me direct you to their most trusted source the Qur’ān, since Muslims reject the Bible we don’t need to use the Bible to prove Islam is false because their own beliefs are full of contradictions. In Ali ‘Imran Allah took his Shahada, it reads:

3:18 Ali ‘Imran

[3:18]  Allah bears witness that La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He),

How is Allah reverting to Islam unless there’s another Allah, perhaps our Muslim friends will be willing to explain how a god is becoming a Muslim?

This is why Allah doesn’t know if Allah will forgive, certainly if Allah is god he would know if he’s going to forgive someone or not, but Allah is saying he’s not sure (“it may be”).

4:99 An-Nisa

[4:99]  … it may be that Allah will pardon them. …

If Allah is god then he should say without question if he will pardon them or not, but here in Surah 4:99 Allah is unsure and says “it may be” he’s not sure that he will pardon them? And who is Allah if this is Allah speaking in Qur’ān, is he talking about another Allah just as he said there are other creators [Surah 23:12-14].

9:43 At-Tawbah

[9:43]  May Allah forgive you

Again Allah doesn’t know if Allah (another god) will forgive, this is the only way to make sense of the Qur’ān. If the Qur’ān is Allah’s literal word then he’s (Allah) is the one doing the talking in Qur’ān. Then Allah would be speaking to himself, why can’t Allah speak plainly and say “I will forgive you”?

Conclusion

The Qur’ān is a book from a god who doesn’t know if you can be forgiven because another Allah is the one who “May forgive”? This is confusing and cannot be a book from God. How is it their god took Shahada and converted to Islam as found in 3:18? These are the question we are asking Muslims to explain as their religion makes no sense.

We appeal to Muslims to search out these truths for themselves, if they’re not afraid of the truth then these theological problems should be addressed. Christians have since the beginning been upfront in our beliefs, they have been tried and tested and remain firm because they are founded upon the solid and sure Rock which is Jesus Christ Himself.

The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.

Psalm 18:2

The Poo Poo of Allah and Muhammad (Trinity)

Muhammadian are obsessed with the Trinity just like their prophet who was obsessed with the number 3, they make all sorts of outlandish remarks challenging Christians on the belief. But logic dictates that if you want to refute Christians on the Trinity then they must know what Christians believe when it comes to the Trinity. That’s fair right?

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).

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!

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.

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.

[5] “keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they are purified” “With regard to the Sunnah, Muslim (302) narrated from Anas that the Jews, if any of their women was menstruating, would not eat with them or meet with them in their houses. The companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about that, then Allaah revealed the verse (interpretation of the meaning):” “They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore, keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they are purified (from menses and have taken a bath). And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allaah has ordained for you (go in unto them in any manner as long as it is in their vagina). Truly, Allaah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves” [al-Baqarah 2:222] https://islamqa.info/en/answers/36722/intimacy-with-ones-wife-when-she-is-menstruating-or-in-nifaas

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Christadelphians Faith and Beliefs

The Christadelphians are a non-Christian restorationist group who hold the unbiblical view of unitarianism. They’re no different from Muslims in the sense that they believe God is a solitary one or monad. As oppose to the biblical Christian view that God is complex in His unity as one in being yet three distinct Persons who are of the one being of God.

The straw-man argument Christadelphians use as well as Muslims is that Christians believe in three gods. This cannot be more further from the truth, as Christians only believe in one God (Deuteronomy 6:4). The following are actual portions taken from their own website. I’ll provide biblical Christian responses to each segment.

The God of the Bible

“The Christadelphians believe that the God of the Bible is one, the Father alone (1 Corinthians 8:6). God stands alone and unrivaled in the universe, the source of all good and evil (Isaiah 45:5-7). We reject the idea that the devil is one of Gods’ angels that was permitted to rebel in the very heavens (thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven) and now wrestles with God for control of the world. We likewise reject the idea of a God with multiple independent personalities as not being in harmony with the teachings of scripture.”

In the Ketuvim (writings) the Psalmist in prayer to the LORD spoke of God as creating the heavens and earth, that He laid the foundation of the earth. The Psalmist David also says God is immutable which means that He never changes and will remain forever even though the heavens and earth will perish.

Psalm 102:1, 25-27 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. … Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.

The Christadelphians have a problem because they would have to answer for the fact that in Hebrews chapter one, the context is Jesus Christ better than the angels. Hebrews 1 echos Psalm 102 as the Father is speaking of the Son calling Him (Jesus Christ) God and tells us that Jesus Christ created the heavens and earth; and that Christ never changes and will remain forever.

Hebrews 1:8, 10-12 But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. … And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

If God is a solitary one as they claim how do they explain that the LORD in Psalms 102 is the one who “laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands” and then the writer of Hebrews 1 says Jesus Christ “laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:”?

Jesus is a Man, not God!

We believe that the Bible is quite clear in its presentation that Christ is a man. The Son of God, but certainly not God Himself. The bulk of mainstream Christianity has staked its life on the assertion that Jesus is God. However, this is to be rejected for the following inescapable reasons, and many more:”

1 “God is one. There can only be one true God. It is undeniable that Jesus referred to himself and the Father as separate. To fly in the face of this the most fundamental of Biblical teachings, in any way, is to venture out onto very thin ice.”

We agree there’s only one true God, the issue is they cannot comprehend how the Father and Christ Jesus can be God. They are both of the same essence, the same way if we take two humans the two are obviously distinct. They are two different persons, but does that mean they are not the same? It depends on how you look at it, because they are the same. Both individuals are human to their nature, therefore, they are the same.

The same is true of Jesus Christ, of course Jesus is going to call the Father the only true God because He is; but the Father along with Jesus Christ is the only true God because He’s of the same substance as the Father.

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Here’s John 17:3 in Greek the word θεὸν is referencing the Father, the Greek word καὶ conjoins θεὸν with Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν (Jesus Christ) as the one true God μόνον ἀληθινὸν

αὕτη δέ ἐστιν ἡ αἰώνιος ζωή ἵνα γινώσκωσιν σὲ τὸν μόνον ἀληθινὸν θεὸν καὶ ὃν ἀπέστειλας Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν

In Greek which is what the New Testament was written in uses the copulative kai which conjoins the two subjects in the verse. Namely the Father and Jesus Christ as being the only true God. This is why in 1 John the Lord Jesus is called the true God.

1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

2 “Mortality and immortality are mutually exclusive characteristics. God is immortal, and cannot die. Jesus died. If you alter this, all Scripture is inexorably weakened.”

The Christadelphians make a Logical Fallacy claiming because Mortality and immortality are exclusive, hence since Jesus died, therefore, He cannot be God. If this is true then how do they explain how we as humans will die but yet our souls will live on eternally either in heaven or hell?

While they deny those who are not saved will end up in hell, how do they reconcile when Christ said they would go away to everlasting punishment found in Matthew 25.

Matthew 25:41-46 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did [it] not to one of the least of these, ye did [it] not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

The context of the above passage is Christ speaking of unfaithful servants, those who showed no compassion for his fellowman. As they failed as being faithful stewards, because they didn’t show any compassion for the needy they didn’t have any compassion for the Lord Himself. Hence they were cast into everlasting punishment.

3 “Jesus always very clearly pointed out his subservience to God; in power, teaching and life itself. To assert their equality is untenable.”

The Lord Jesus took the place of a servant (Philippians 2:7) thereby humbling Himself becoming a man (Philippians 2:8). He came not to be ministered unto but to serve (Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45) so that He could give Himself as a ransom at the cross of Calvary. God became a Man according to Philippians 2:5-8.

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.

4 “Mortal humans cannot exist in the direct presence of God. As Exodus 33:20 says, no man can see God and live. Therefore, to say Jesus was fully God and fully man violates scripture, since thousands of people saw Jesus.”

It seems that Christadelphians don’t read the Bible, if God was not seen then how do they explain all the people in the Old Testament who saw God?

Abraham sat down and ate food with God in Genesis chapter 18, God appeared to Moses (Exodus 6:2-3), Jacob wrestled God seeing God face to face (Genesis 32:24-30).

Genesis 32:30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

The Lord Jesus Christ unveiled His glory on the mount of transfiguration (Matthew 16:28—17:13; Luke 9:27–36; 2 Peter 1:16–18 ), Christ called Himself God Almighty (Revelation 1:8), lastly we have the account of one of Christ disciples (Thomas) calling Jesus God, if Jesus is not God this would have been the perfect moment that the Lord Jesus should have said He’s not God.

John 20:27-28 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

As we read the Lord Jesus response to Thomas we’ll see that Jesus never rejected Thomas in calling Him God.

John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.

In the Old Testament God said He would not share His glory with anyone (Isaiah 42:8; Isaiah 48:11), and then we see in the New Testament the Lord Jesus said He shared glory with God the Father before creation was made (John 17:5).

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Conclusion

The Christadelphians cult is deceived into thinking that Jesus is only a man, just like Muslims claim. Christians have always believed Jesus Christ is a real Man, but He’s also God because He took unto Himself a human nature; this is called the Hypostatic Union. In addition to the 2 erroneous doctrines they hold to there are more, therefore, they cannot be saved as long as they keep these false teachings. We’ll touch upon those other teachings in a later article, Lord willing.
