Jesus the Eternal,
or Muhammad the Liar?
Gen. James Green
W HEN ONE digs deep into the Islamic Quran and Hadiths, one will see why Muslims claim that their books, and especially the Quran, are BELIEVED to be the FINAL revelation of Allah to mankind—as Allah revealed it to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel.
In this article, I want to show our readers what Muhammad believed/taught—and passed along in the books—about God, Jesus, the Christian’s Holy Bible, and himself. I’ll use just a few surahs (chapters) to give our readers a glimpse of what Muslims believe.
“Allah,” of the Muslims, and “God” of the Christians, ARE NOT one and the same. This subject could take pages, but to cut it short, “Allah” is the “god” of the Quran who has NO son (the Bible says just the opposite!). It is also the Arabic for “God” (in the Arabic Bible), who is the Father of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
ISLAM’S (FALSE) prophet taught that God is unknowable and unapproachable—the very opposite of what the Holy Bible says. The first and most important doctrine in the creed of Islam is the doctrine of “Allah.” Muhammad knew from childhood the native pre-Islamic belief in Allah, meaning “the god,” a vague high God who created the world (see Arthur Jeffrey’s “Islam: Muhammad and his Religion,” 1958, p. 85). Muhammad also knew of the Najran tribe, which was almost all Christian. Muhammad’s father’s name was Abd-Allah: “the slave of God.”
By Islamic tradition, there are 99 most beautiful names of Allah, but not even ONE is “love” as we find in our Holy Bible. In first John we find the word “love” mentioned many times: “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God,” (4:7) “…for God is love” (v. 8). Verse 14 tells us that “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.” Remember this verse when we get into the “Son” or “Jesus” part.
ONE THING is very obvious about the Quran: it is very distorted to an incredible degree, including the subjects we’re covering.
God, in their book, is not the God of love. Their god, 600 years after the birth of Christ, has become a god that is loveless, unknowable and unapproachable; he is only to be FEARED! This “fear” is not the “reverential fear” we find in our Holy Bible.
Surah 2:196 says: “…And fear Allah, and know that Allah is SEVERE in punishment.” While I agree that God has a “wrath” side, He ALSO has a “love” side (write for our 2 magazines on “The Wrath of God”—free).
Another thing we find in the Quran is that Allah is a deceiver—the exact opposite of what the Holy Bible teaches: “And they deceived, and Allah deceived, and Allah is the BEST DECEIVER” (3:54). I’m using the quotes from “The Generous Quran;” An Accurate, modern English Translation of The Quran by Usama K. Dakdok, 2013).
The A. Yusuf Ali translation, 1934, has it said this way: “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, And God too planned, and the best of planners is God.” In his foot note he states: “The Arabic makara has both a bad and good meaning, that of making an intricate plan to carry out some secret purpose.” Beware the translations for the West are not as strong as the original in Arabic. We might say they are Politically Correct, for they water down the truth—the real truth of Islam.
Surah 8:30 reads: “Remember how the Unbelievers plotted against thee, to keep thee in bonds, or slay thee, or get thee out (of thy home). They plot and plan, and Allah too plans; but the best of planners is Allah.”
Muhammad also taught that Allah leads people astray: “So surely Allah leads astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills…” (35:8). Ali’s reads: “Is he, then, to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring, so that he looks upon it as good (equal to one who is rightly guided)? For God leaves to stray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. So let not thy soul go out in (vainly) sighting after them: For God knows well all that they do.” This is partly true. The Bible allows men to do evil, but we are instructed to win them back to God if possible. In fact, Islam itself puts TO DEATH those who depart from the path (faith of Islam). In (The Cow) 2:256 we read: “there is no compulsion in religion (Islam)…” But, it should be noted here, after the prophet became strong (in Medina), that the Quran says: “ACCEPT Islam, PAY tribute, or DIE! (see the Repentance Surah , v. 29). (I have articles on this already, so I’ll mention only some surahs).
But, back to “no compulsion” (2:256), this was not true then, or now. Right now ISIS (or Islamic State) offers infidels Islam or Death! Even back in the prophet’s day, one could (in the early Meccan days) “join up,” but to “leave” was punishable by death!
Quran 32:13 states: “I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people together.” Does God really desire to do this? The Bible says that God has no pleasure in the death of the sinner, nor does He have pleasure in wickedness (Ps. 5:4; “I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies, says the Lord God. Therefore turn (REPENT!)—be converted—and live,” Ezek. 18:32). Those who die in sin go to Hell forever—those who repent and live the life will go to Heaven forever. To say that God desires to send sinners to Hell is not true. But sadly, MOST choose to go there (see Quran 32:13; 11:119; 7:18). The Bible’s whole theme is REDEMPTION. But, if men choose otherwise, DAMNATION is their portion, but this is not God’s perfect will. He would that ALL men be saved (1 Tim. 2:3, 4= “For such (praying) is good and right, and (it is) pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior (both Jesus the Son and God the Father are called “Savior”), who wishes ALL men to be saved and increasingly to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the (divine) Truth” (Amp. Bible).
Verse 5 continues with “That there (is only) one God and (only) one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” There is no mention of Muhammad folks: not a word! Verse 6 reads: “Who gave Himself a ransom for ALL (people, a fact that was) attested to at the right and proper time.” Did Islam’s prophet die for man’s salvation? NO! He was a sinner that died in his sins and is in the very HELL with other sinners and jinns!!
According to Ali’s footnote (p. 1095, N. 3645), “jinns” are the evil spirits that tempt men, and the men who will suffer punishment will be those who have succumbed to their temptations. The Bible calls these “demons” and “the damned lost souls.” Hell was created for Satan and his angels (demons) originally as the Bible declares. God does not desire that men go to Hell, but Hell awaits all those who refuse salvation.
ABU BAKR Al Sedik, the successor of Muhammad (the first Caliph) said this about God:
“I swear to God that I do not feel safe from God’s cunning (deceitfulness) even if one of my feet is already inside paradise” (see “The successors of the Apostle,” bu Khalid Muhammad Khalid, p. 114). Bakr was the father of Aisha, wife of the prophet.
The Bible does not portray God like this. God is Wise, but not cunning. There are dozens of renowned Muslims—then and now—who never speak of “love.” Muslims live in fear (dread) of not making paradise. We, as Christians, can have a surety of our salvation...read the Scriptures. In fact, “Gospel,” means “good news,” which brings peace/joy to us. God WILLS that ALL men, women, and children be SAVED! The unrepentant heart will keep one OUT of Heaven.
Islam on the contrary does not will the salvation of ALL people. The fact is, the Quran speaks of a god who plots against man to destroy him. Read the “chapter of the Isra” (“The Night Journey”) 17:16:
“And when we would destroy a township, we send commandment to its folk who live a life of ease and afterwards they commit abomination therein, and so the word of doom has its effect and we annihilate with complete annihilation.”
One can see from this surah, that Islam’s god did not eradicate because of so much wickedness that he found himself obliged to destroy it against his will. Rather, the “compassionate,” “merciful,” god PURPOSED and DETERMINED to ANNIHILATE it!—he PLOTTED. Islamic scholars say that Allah ordered its sumptuous residents to live a licentious life, thus it becomes subject to damnation. He ORDERED its affluent residents to commit debauchery! Those who preach watered-down versions of this text to the West do what ISIS, al Nustra, and al Qaeda are doing right now! These “soldiers of Allah” stand up and out to KILL/ANNIHILATE those who commit abomination (according to Islam!). This is Islam’s god at work!—Submit to Islam or DIE!! These militants (like those in the days of Muhammad and afterwards) are fulfilling their “obligation” to their God who bids them: “Fight against those who do not believe in Allah…slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush” (9:29; 9:5, Quran).
God ’s Paradise?
THE CHRISTIAN GOD, unlike the Muslim god, is a God of love (true, He hates sin, but loves the sinner—wants them to come into repentance). Can we find in all 114 chapters of the Quran ONE surah/text like the one I’m going to quote?:
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)! Did Muhammad die for us? NO!
The Biblical Heaven (“eternal life”) is unlike the Quranic Paradise. The Quran puts forth many surahs for us to look at: 47:15; 87:31-33; 56:35-37; 56:22-23; 36:55, 56; 55:56; 37:41-49 etc. “Paradise” consists of virgins, grapes, pomegranates, meats, wines, honey…and everlasting SEX and FEASTING. Sex with Muslim men never affects their virginity! This shows us just how debauched Muhammad’s mind was. These “beautiful virgins” were the sick imaginations of Muhammad’s mind. One only has to read the many Islamic commentaries available (see Al Glalon, p. 328, pp. 451-453, p. 499; Al Baydawy, pp. 710, 711, 781; Al Zumakhary, pt. 4, pp. 690, 453, 459-462). Muhammad’s own description of Paradise can be found in the commentary of the Baydawi, pp. 710, 711, and 781; the Zamakh-shari in ‘Kash-shaf,’ pt. 4, pp. 453, 459-462, and 690; and the Jalalan, pp. 451-453, 499).
In the chapter Yasin (55-56) we read:
“To those who merit Paradise this day are happily employed (working) they and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining,” Zamakh-shari, pt. 4, p. 21; Jalalan, p. 372; Muhammad Abu al-Abbus, p. 54 all claim that their “business” was deflowering the virgins. Is it any wonder that these militants “love” to “kill” so as to go to such a carnal place? But what about Islamic women?...to HELL with them!! Listen to lustful/horny Muhammad:
“The apostle of God was asked: ‘Will we have sexual intercourse in Paradise?’ He (Muhammad) said, ‘Yes, I sear by the One who holds my soul in His hand that it will be a vigorous intercourse, as soon as the man departs from her (the hauri= “virgin”) she will again become immaculate and virgin” (taken from “Legal Opinions” by Sheikh Sha’rowi, p. 36).
Listen to this:
“The apostle of God, Muhammad, said, ‘Every morning one hundred virgins will be (the portion) of each man” (p. 148).
There is just too much to write about on this virgin/paradise thing. Of course, none of what they believe is true. The Holy Bible—the very Scriptures that Muhammad told his followers to read or have read to them, never, ever describes such a thing or place! So, He did not even believe what the “Book” (Bible) had to say, his LUST for women (even children) was his god!
ABDIYAH A. Abdul-Haqq notes in his book “Sharing Your faith with a Muslim” that: “it is quite evident from the Sura 10:95, that in the event of perplexity about revelations in the Quran, the prophet is directed by God to consult with Christians and Jews who possess revealed Scriptures.” The Surah Abdul-Haqq refers to is thus:
“And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which we reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scriptures (that was) before thee” (Sura 10:95).
This tells us several things:
1—The Scriptures were before Muhammad or the Quran;
2—Muhammad didn’t think that the Scriptures had been corrupted (his followers after him started this LIE to cover for the multitude of contradictions, mistakes, and even lies!)
But did the prophet seek the Truth about the nature of God, Jesus, or about Paradise? Muhammad spoke about Hell (like the Scriptures somewhat), but his beliefs about Paradise were totally unBiblical (note: some translations, including Ali’s, have 10:94, not 10:95).
In fact, Muhammad neglected to (on purpose?) reveal correct revelations from Scripture. So, even 10:94 or 10:95 was never really taken seriously. Islam would not be such a “Bloody” religion if Muslims would have heeded the Bible. Now they murder Christians and Jews.
If one wants to read up on the attempts made by Muslim scholars to AVOID the TRUE implications of Sura 10:95, see W. Muir’s “The Beacon of Truth” (London: The Religious Tract Society, 1894, p. 100). For your information, I’ll print this portion here:
“The learned doctors of Islam are sadly embarrassed by this verse, referring the prophet, as it does, to the people of the Book who would solve his doubts. They have striven to explain it in such a way as might maintain his dignity, and are thus driven to interpretations, the strangest one has ever heard, such as that it is addressed ostensibly to the prophet but really to such as question his claim—which is in the last degree opposed to the sense of the text. Others claim that it was Muhammad himself who is addressed, but, however much they change and turn the compass, it ever points to the same celestial pole—the purity and preservation of the Scriptures. If, again, we take the party addressed to be those who doubted the truth of Islam, this throws open the whole foundation of the prophet’s mission; regarding which they are referred to the Jews [or Christians] for an answer to their doubts; which would only strengthen the argument for the authority of the Scripture—a result the Muslim critics would hardly be prepared for.”
You see, even Surah (or Sura) 21:7 tells us: “Before three, also, the apostle we sent were but men, to whom we granted inspiration: If ye realize this not, ask of those who possess the Message” (see also 16:43 and note 2069. 16:43 reads like 21:7).
Here is note 2069 taken from Ali’s translation:
“If pagan Arabs, who were ignorant of religious and other history, wondered how a man from among themselves could receive inspiration and bring a Message from God, let them ask the Jews, who had also received God’s Message earlier through Moses, whether Moses was a man, or an angel, or a god. They would learn that Moses was a man like themselves, but inspired by God. ‘Those who possess the Message’ may also mean any men of wisdom, who were qualified to have an opinion in such matters” (see also George Sale’s translation of Suras 4:163 and 164).
So, our uncorrupted Holy Bible was in custody of Jews and Christians who habitually read them (Surah 10:95), and studied them (2:113; see also 3:93, 94).
I could go on page after page on this theme alone—the Bible and God—but let’s pass on to Jesus.
MUHAMMAD AND JESUS
THE BIG issue with Muslims is that Allah has no son. This totally contradicts the Holy Bible—the very Bible that God commanded Muhammad to seek out for truth!
The Generous Translation reads:
“The inventor of the heavens and the earth, how can he have a son when he has no female companion?” (6:101). I already have studied on this, so I’ll make this short.
Ali has “consort,” not “female companion” (see p. 319, sect. 13. Ali mentions 2:117, note 120, after 6:101 in reference to God as The Primal Origin of the Heavens/earth).
Islam teaches that Jesus was a sinless man, teacher, prophet, miracle-worker, but ‘Isa (Jesus) was not God’s Son (Divine). Usama K. Dakdok’s “Exposing The Truth about the Quran” (2013, p. 3018) we read:
“…Westerners do not know, is that when Muslims say that they believe in Jesus, they mean Prophet Isa. We must acknowledge the fact that as simply as Muhammad changing Jesus’ name from the Hebrew name Yeshua (Savior) to the non-Arabic name Isa (name which means nothing), this simple change by Muhammad can be defined by a complete denial of who Jesus is and why He came to our world.” Dakdok continues: “Jesus cannot be a good man when He claimed to be God; for if He is not God, then that means that He is a blasphemer.” Hey, the Jews would love this!
Since Muhammad and Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God, there is NO salvation for them (one might want to read the “great debate” between Dr. A. A. Shorrosh (who was born in Nazareth, Palestine) and Ahmed Deedat (now dead). I have both his book, “Islam Revealed,” and the video debate in London, Dec. 1985. This debate’s theme was “Is Jesus God?”
The late Deedat was really sharp, and knew both the Holy Bible and the Quran…but his knowledge of Scripture was skewed, for he had not the Holy Spirit, who reveals Truth.
What Muhammad Taught About Himself
FIRST, MUHAMMAD believed himself to be favored (by Allah) over all other prophets—early, current, and future. Not bad! Of course he made all this stuff up. Listen to this: “These are the messengers: We favored some of them above others. Some of them spoke to Allah, and he exalted some of them by degrees…” (2:253). He went on to claim that he WAS the SEAL of the prophets: above Jesus the Christ also! Surah 33:40 states that “Muhammad was not the father of any man among you, but is the messenger of Allah and the Khatam of the prophets. And Allah was the knower of all things” (Khatam means seal).
The Quran teaches JIHAD!
MUHAMMAD AND his successors initiated OFFENSIVE WARS in order to IMPOSE Islam by FORCE, as well as to SEIZE (steal!) spoil and lands. Islam teaches this. This “murdering” (not mere killing!) of the infidel was taught by the prophet. The following is what Muhammad taught about himself:
“I descended by Allah with the sword in my hand, and my wealth will come from the shadow of my sword. And the ones who will disagree with me will be humiliated and persecuted” (Ibn Hisham, “The Life of Muhammad,” 3rd ed., nt. 6, vol. 3, p. 8). Does this sound like the “peaceful Islam” we hear about from our “politically correct” government and their liars and deceivers?
On the other hand, Jesus taught that “the thief (Muhammad) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill (murder included), and to destroy: I am come that they (infidels) might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (Jn. 10:10). This is followed up with: “I am the good shepherd (not wolf!): the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (v. 11). This metaphor illustrates Jesus’ tender, loving, and devoted care for His people: both the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and for the lost pagan infidels of the world.
Did Muhammad die for us? No!
Azhar’s Scholars in Egypt all agree that Muhammad’s religion was spread by the sword, not love, such as Jesus was. There are dozens of quotes I could put forth, but take this particular one: “The Holy War, as it is known in Islamic Jurisprudence, is basically on offensive war. This is the duty of Muslims in every age (did you catch that?)…this is the phase in which the meaning of Holy War has taken its final form. Thus the apostle of God said: ‘I was commanded to fight the people until they believe in God and his message…’” (Dr. Muhammad Sa’id Ramadan al-Buti, “Jurisprudence in Muhammad’s Biography,” 7th ed., p. 134). ALL HONEST MUSLIM SCHOLARS TELL US THAT JIHAD IS INCUMBENT ON EVERY MUSLIM, IN EVERY AGE. Do you really believe that jihad will disappear? HA!
Dr. Muhammad al-Amin, in his book “The Method of Islamic Law,” wrote: “No infidel should be left on his land as it is denoted from Muhammad’s statement: ‘I was commanded to fight the people…” You may want to research the following:
~ “The Sahih of al-Bukhari,” pt. 1, p. 13;
~ “The Sahih of Muslim,” pt. 1, p. 267 (the interpretation of the Nowawi).
~ “The Commentary of Ibn Kathin,” p. 336;
~ “The Muhalla” (the Sweetened), Vol. 4, p. 317;
~ “The Ordinances of the Quran” by al-Shafi’i, p. 51, pt. 2;
~ “Mishkat of al-Masabih,” pt. 1, p. 9.
~ One especially ought to read Ibn Hisham’s “Biography of the Prophet” (pt. 4, p. 11).
Since I have already put together other booklets on jihad, I’ll leave it up to my readers to request these articles.
Let the reader ponder, really ponder, the Muslim way of life (really death!!). There is no freedom in Islam, but Jesus came to MAKE the sinner FREE!
WHAT JESUS SAID AND DID
We are told in the Holy Bible that Jesus is NOW:
1.) at the right hand of the Father (Acts 6);
2.) our high priest interceding for us (Heb. 5:5);
3.) our Lamb of God sitting on the throne (Rev. 22:3); King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 19:6-10).
Pre-Existent Son of God
“BUT WHEN the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law” (Gal. 4:4).
“For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh” (Rom. 8:3).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9).
What do we think of the above verses?
One thing for certain is that the SAVING mission of the Son is always expressed in a ἵνα clause. Probably the reference should always be to “His” Son, rather than “the” Son. The Greek verb for sending can be either (ἐξ) αποστέλλω (Strong’s G1821), πέμπω (Strong’s G3992), or δίδωμι. (John 3:16 does not mean “giving up to suffering,” but, “sending” is suggested by 3:17, and especially 14:16, which uses διδόναι with reference to the Spirit in 14:26; 15:26; 16:7).
There is much already written about all this. Muslims believe that Jesus was the “Son of Mary,” not the “Son of God.” Ibn Kathir (“Stories of the Prophets” 2/116) quotes 5:75:
“the Christ, son of Mary, is nothing except a messenger; indeed, other messengers have gone before him, and his mother is a siddiqah (person of integrity)...Look at how we show the verse to them, then look at how they turn away.” “Christ” in Arabic means “maseeh,” similar to the word “mamsooh”= “washed.” But, the Hebrew/Greek word for “Christ”= “the anointed one.” But this still does not make Jesus “The Son of God” (divine).
It is pointed out by Usama Dakdok (“Exposing the Truth about the Quran,” p. 217) that Ibn Kathir mistakenly referenced the description of Jesus as coming from Quran 57:47, but the correct verse is 5:46:
“And in their footsteps we sent Isa, son of Mary, confirming what is between his hands of the Torah, and we gave him the Gospel, in it is guidance and light, and confirming what was between his hands from the Torah, and a guidance and a sermon to the fearer.” What it means is that Jesus, “son of Mary,” came to CONFIRM the Torah...which means that the Torah existed in Jesus’ day, and was without ANY CORRUPTION! Listen up Muslims!: Jesus came also to FULFILL the Torah (Mt. 5:17). This leaves Muhammad out—he merely read what our Holy Bible teaches.
ISLAM’S PROPHET wrote: “And their saying, ‘surely we killed the Christ Isa, son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.’ And they did not kill him, and they did not salaba (“crucify,” non-Arabic word of Persian/Syriac origin) him; but it was made to appear to them, and surely those who disagree about him are in doubt of him. They do not have any knowledge of him except following the conjecture, and they did not kill him for certain.” Muhammad got at least part of this right: the Jews did not “kill” Jesus, they “MURDERED!” Him.
This Quran 4:157 is one of the BIGGEST contradictions (lies also!) in the Quran. The prophet already stated that the Gospel contained “guidance” and “light”=TRUTH! Here the false prophet of Islam denies the Gospel account of Jesus’ crucifixion. We encounter this kind of stuff all throughout their Unholy book.
Ibn Kathir’s story about Jesus is merely ONE man’s attempt to justify what Muhammad said (see his book, “Stories of the Prophets,” Abu Al Fida Ishamail Ibn Kathir Al Kurashi Al Damashce, Beirut: Dar al-Arab Heritage, 1408 AH, 1988, 2/67). He repeats the lies that Jesus “was not the Son of God,” nor divine, but merely the “son of Mary.” He quotes Muhammad’s 4:157-159.
Ibn Kathir points out that: “Yet Allah raised him up to himself. And Allah was dear, wise. And none of the People of the Book (Jews/Christians) will believe in him before his death. And on the resurrection day, he will be a witness against them.” What a crock of BULL! Anyone reading the Bible will see that Jesus DIED on the Cross first, and was resurrected secondly. Muslim scholars refuse to correct Muhammad’s BIG FAT LIE!!
“BUT WHEN the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law...”
At this juncture, Paul says that when the appointed period of history was “full,” that God sent His Son—referring to God’s sending of His Son from His pre-existent state in heaven (see 1 Cor. 8:6; Phil. 2:6-8; Col. 1:15-17). Paul’s metaphor in Rom. 8:22, 23 indicates how much this meant of pain for the mother (Mary) and humiliation for the Son (Jesus). (See also Gen. 3:16; 2 Cor. 8:9; Phil. 2:8-11; Lk. 2:34, 35).
There is no way that Jesus could redeem the world unless He was Divine...not merely human. He was both! Romans 8:3 tells us a lot about the “sin” that must be condemned (see Gal. 3:13). In terms of the incarnation of the pre-existent “Son,” it is referred to by Paul as the substitutionary death on the Cross; which Muslims do not believe. Paul puts the main accent on the judicial destruction of sin in the σάρξ of Jesus, in the DEATH of the Cross according to Gal. 4:4.
In the Johannine Epistles, the thought persistent is that of the full representation of the Father by the Son. Without the Son, one cannot have the Father, and hence, one cannot have eternal life (see 1 Jn. 2:22-25). Therefore, Muslims do not/cannot have eternal life. They are DAMNED!
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” (1 Jn. 2:22-25).
“And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world” (1 Jn. 4:14).
Muhammad, who claimed our Holy Bible was without corruption, refused to believe these texts; if he did believe these texts, he would not have claimed to be the “final revelation” for mankind. Verse 15 tells us that Islam’s (false) prophet cannot be holy, for Muhammad believed not that Jesus was the (divine) Son of God.
“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD; BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED” (John 3:16, 17).
The UNCORRUPTED Scriptures tell us that God sent the Son, so that the world could be saved. Not a word about salvation through some Arabian murderer, pedophile, and thief!
John said: “And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God” (1:34). In Jn. 3:18, cf. 1:12; 2:23, the formulation: “faith in the name of the only-begotten Son of God,” is found. The “sending” formula is given in the abbreviated form that God has given eternal life, and this is in His “Son,” 1 Jn. 5:11. There is also reference to the manifesting and coming of God’s Son, 1 Jn. 3:8; 5:20.
“YOUR FATHER Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am” (John 8:56-58).
The above text is a reference to Gen. 17:17. The Aramaic Targum of this passage renders the Hebrew word for “laughed” by “rejoiced;” scholars note that in the pre-Christian Book of Jubilees, with is expansions of the stories in Genesis, it is repeatedly said that “Abraham rejoiced.”
But what did Jesus mean, “Before Abraham was, I am”? The incarnate Logos is speaking (see Jn. 1:1, 2, + 18 where “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…” Three characteristics of the “Logos” are named in v. 1:
1. His eternity,
2. His fellowship with God, and
3. His Divine nature.
The absence of the Greek article before the word “God” makes it perfectly clear that θεός is the predicate, not the subject, of the verb. The two terms are not interchangeable, or else the writer could not have said: “The Word was with God.” The Gospel declares that men are to “honor the son, even as they honor the Father” (Jn. 5:23), without identifying them (for the relationship, see 14:9, 28; 5:30; 6:38; 10:30).
A literal translation reads: “I Am from all eternity.” The “Son of God” existed before all ages. You see, Abraham rejoiced to see the Son’s day, or he “earnestly desired to see My day.” Abraham, by divine revelation perceived the coming of the “Son” to the earth. The revelation was none other than Genesis 3:15: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
Not only this, but Abraham saw this day when Jehovah (“pre-existent Son”) appeared to him in a human form (see Gen. 18:2, 17, which many suppose to have been a manifestation of the Lord Jesus).
Verse 59 proves that this “Truth” made the Jews furious! They wanted to murder Him for asserting His Godhead. I could write many pages about Jesus’ pre-existence.
Before He Became Flesh (Man)
TECHNICALLY, there is no such thing as “existence” before Him as God, but He existed before He became a man. The prophet Micah wrote of Him “existing” from all eternity (5:1, 2); this is the same as what we read in John (1:1-5). We’ve already seen that Jesus existed in the Old Testament era as Jehovah God. In John 17:5, Jesus makes this astounding statement: “…glorify thou Me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” Did Muhammad miss this? In v. 24 He uses the Words: “…before the foundation of the world.” In verse 25 He makes reference to have known His Father before the world.
IN COL. 1:15-18, Paul wrote about the pre-existent Son...“Who is the image of invisible God, the firstborn of every creature” (v. 15).
Verse 17 says: “And He is before all things…”
The author of Hebrews (1:1-13; 2:10) relates the same thing. It says in v. 2 that the Son made the worlds. What did Muhammad ever make except WAR?! Verse 3 tells us that the Son was “the brightness of His (God’s) glory, and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His Power…sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
The angels were also called “sons (small ‘s’) of God” in the Old Testament. Hebrews makes a clear distinction between the “Son” and the “angels” (read vv. 5, 6, and 7). “…When He bringeth in the first-begotten into the world, He saith, ‘And let all the angels of God worship Him’” (a quotation from Dt. 32:43, LXX, and Ps. 97:7). The “first-born” meant “first” in relation to men who are called to be sons of God (see 2:10; Rom. 8:29), since angels are excluded from sonship.
For Ever and Ever
LET ME QUOTE HEB. 1:8 for the Muslims: “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.” Did Muhammad miss this?
The sense in which the writer uses this quotation is CLEAR! It means, dear Muslims, that the “Son” has divine authority in contrast to angels (or men).
Now, as for the opening Words in our translations, they require the application of θεός, “O God,” TO THE SON!!!
So, what do we have in verse 8?
1) the dominion of the “Son” which is
2) eternal, and
3) founded on righteousness—something that Muhammad/Islam does not have!
Jesus, the crucified, risen, and glorified Lord is the NOW and ACTUAL Lord, although He has not entered into complete rule. Even NOW, all things/peoples are rightfully His...i.e., without Him as “Lord,” no man is fully human; His “Lordship” is woven into the nature of things. He is still the “Lord”/ “King” that rules forever and ever. Muhammad’s body is dust, his soul is in Hell forever!
For Our Liberal Critics
“THOU HAST LOVED righteousness and hated iniquity: therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows” (Hebrews 1:9).
Today’s backslidden church has trashed this verse!, replacing it with a “new Christ,” a “new god”—who is a funster, and a sinner. But, this is their folly/their delusion. God the Father, and God the Son, will ALWAYS BE HOLY and HATE iniquity. To love righteousness is the fulfillment of the 4th Beatitude. It is to possess righteousness...to be wholly holy.
So, the “Son” is called “God,” in v. 8, who has a throne (rulership) forever and ever. The Words here are quoted from Ps. 45:6, 7, which the ancient Chaldee paraphrase, and the most intelligent rabbis refer to the Messiah. By using deceit, some scholars who dislike the fact that Jesus is God translate v. 8 as: “God is thy Throne for ever and ever.”
(NOTE: if this version be correct, it is certain that the text can be no proof of the doctrine. One scholar vindicates this translation at large in his “History of Opinions;” and ὁ θεος, being the nominative case, is supposed to be a sufficient justification of this version.
In answer to this, it may be stated that the nominative case is often used for the vocative, particularly by the Attics [classical/ancient Greek]; and the whole scope of the place requires it should be so used here; and, with due deference to all of a contrary opinion, the original Hebrew cannot be translated by any other way: “Thy Throne, O God, is for ever, and to eternity.” The Son’s throne is in both worlds, extends over all time, and will exist thru all endless duration.)
Matthew 28:18 reads: “All power is given unto Me, both in Heaven and earth.” SO, HIS THRONE (RULERSHIP, I.E. DOMINION) EXTENDS FROM THE CREATION TO THE CONSUMMATION OF ALL THINGS. This leaves NO room or place for Islam’s false prophet.
Those who DENY the godhead of Christ, either in the Psalms, or here in Hebrews, do not understand the Godhead. And, the Islamic faith loves the stupid liberals who deny Christ’s deity.
When one digs deep into Muhammad’s supposed revelations, one will find out that Waraqa Naufal (560-619 AD), distant cousin to Khadijah, Muhammad’s first wife, played a large part in the prophet’s life:
* all three were from the Quraysh tribe, and
* all three had early connections with a Meccan Christian group.
This group is closely identified with the Quranic name “Nasorani” (see Suras 2:62 and 5:18) that linguistically started as a general name for Christians which associate the early believers with Jesus of Nazareth (see Acts 24:5). “Nazoraeans” were among a number of early Christians throughout the Eastern Empires. The 4th century Greek writer Epiphanius mentions over 80 groups in his list of heresies in “The Panarian” (see “The Panarian of Epiphanius of Salomis,” Brill, 1987, p. 116).
Note that Waraqa belonged to the religion of Moses before his conversion to Nosronia (see Ibn Hisham, Sirah, vol. 1, p. 203). He followed the monotheism belief (God is ONE, not 3); but in that ONE God are 3 divine persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—this, Muslims claim is idolatry (write for my free magazine: “Is Jesus God,” for proof in the “tri-unity”).
There was another group of Christians in Waraqa Ibn Naufal’s day called Najrans. They believed in Jesus’ divinity, unlike the Nosranias. So, the faith of Naufal was a sectarian heresy. Yes they held a high view of Jesus—He was just not God! Naufal believed in Jesus’ mission to complete the law of Moses, without asserting Jesus’ real mission: To give His life for the redemption of the world!
To my main point: neither Naufal, Khadijah, or Muhammad, believed in Jesus’ divinity, or him being the “Son,” or His crucifixion, or His resurrection. This clearly leaves them as PAGANS!—“religious pagans” (there were also other sects of Ebionism, Cerinthism, and Elkasaism). With this background, it is easy to see WHY Muhammad believed the way he believed.
Take note of the following: “The monk Waraqa wrote the Hebrew book. He wrote from the Hebrew Gospel what God desired” (Al-Bukhari, died 870. “Sahih,” as explained by al-Karmani, vol. 1, p. 38, 39);
“Waraqa converted to Nosrania during the Jalriliyya ‘period of ignorance.’ He wrote the Hebrew book. He wrote from the Hebrew Gospel what he liked to write” (Abu al-Faraj al-Isfahani, “Kitab al-Aghani,” vol. 3, p. 114);
“The monk Waraqa wrote the Arabic book. He wrote from the Gospel in Arabic what God liked to be written” (Muslim, died 875, “Sahih,” vol. 1, pp. 78, 79).
According to all this, Waraqa had become the “expert”—the interpreter of God’s Divine Will, the religious teacher. We can NOW see that Muhammad received his “revelations” and “inspirations” from this monk, not God, the Holy Spirit, or an angel.
Listen to this: “A.L.R. This book, whose verses are steadily written and developed, comes from the wise, the well-versed (in all things)” (11:1, note: A.L.R./A.L.M. are a couple of 3 Arabic consonants that open 11 of the Quranic Suras. These mysterious letters have baffled scholars for centuries—“The Priest and The Prophet,” Azzi, p. 142, n. 36.
Waraqa put the Gospel of Hebrews into Arabic…with what pleased him: not the way we find in our Holy Bible. He also used Aramaic. The single Gospel of the Quran appears to be the Hebrew Gospel. The Quran never uses “Gospels,” but “Gospel” (see sura 3:3; 57:27). The Quran recalls parables similar to those found in the Ebionite Gospel: “Thus they described in the Torah and in the Gospel: they are like a seed which sends forth its blade” (48:29). The Ebionites considered Jesus to be a great prophet, but believed neither in His Divinity, nor Divine Sonship. They recognize a single, non-canonical gospel—the Gospel of Hebrews (also called the Gospel of Matthew).
It was Ebion that said Jesus was generated by physical sex, not by the Holy Ghost (or Spirit). After the destruction of Jerusalem, the Ebionites immigrated to Hijaz area where other Arab tribes merged into this sect.
Waraqa ’s Death
MUHAMMAD’S teacher died. Al Bukhari’s (p. 38) quotation states: “Waraqa was scarcely dead, then the revelation became lukewarm.” This proves that this monk was Muhammad’s tutor. He died, not a Muslim, nor a Biblical Christian, but as a deceived heretic.
THERE ARE CONFLICTING accounts of this man after his death. Muhammad’s vision of him in “paradise” is challenged by another vision of Waraqa in the hadiths: “I saw Waraqa in paradise. He is dressed in silk…” Later the prophet saw him in a white dress… “among the people of Hell, he would not wear such a white dress” (Al-Halabiyya, p. 273).
Enough of Waraqa. Let’s get back to the book of Hebrews.
IN THIS TEXT, the Arabic adds a vocative ya sign, “reading the place thus: korsee yallaho ila abadilabada, the same as in our version. And even allowing that ὁ θεος here is to be used as the nominative case, it will not make the sense contended for, without adding εστι to it, a reading which is not countenanced by any version, nor by any manuscript yet discovered” (Adam Clarke, Vol. 2, p. 690, on Hebrews 1:8).
It may be pointed out that many of the older translations read 1:8 in the nominative case, with the force of the vocative; for none of them have inserted the word εστι, “is,” because it is not authorized by the original: a word which the opposers of the Divinity of our Lord Jesus are obliged to beg, in order to support their interpretation.
I REALIZE this takes us even deeper into this “Divine” origin of Jesus—the pre-existent Son. It is asked: “If the Father begot the Son, He who was begotten had a beginning of His existence; and from this it is manifest, that there was a time in which the Son was not?”
“But is not God called Father; and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ?”
“Father” (title) is given to Him signifying “Author,” “Cause,” “Fountain,” and “Creator.” In Hebrews 12:9 He is called “the Father of Spirits.” He is also the Father of men because He created them. He is called “Father” of Jesus (the human), because by His energy the Son was produced in the virgin womb of Mary (Luke 1:35). There are no Scriptures that show us where the “Divine” nature was created: it was not, for He had NO BEGINNING as the “Son of God.” But, there are plenty of Scriptures showing us about the Godhead. There are Scriptures proving the origin of the Godhead—it is unoriginated. In fact, we don’t need proof, for He/They ARE!
IF THERE is no Eternal Father, there can be no Eternal Son. I can’t find a verse where the Father is called “eternal,” or “everlasting.” These titles are given to Jesus Himself (Is. 9:6).
There are numerous titles ascribed to Christ Jesus, proving His Deity:
Isaiah 9:6, 7:
Prince of Peace
Rev. 22:12, 13, 16:
King of kings
Lord of lords
THESE TITLES, AND OTHERS, PROVE HIS DEITY
PHIL. 2:5-11 describes Jesus’ Divine attributes in which, as He set them aside to become a man.
HERE IS a limited list of Divine offices Jesus held:
Creator-------------------Jn. 1:3; Col. 1:16;
Mediator-----------------1 Tim. 2:4, 5; Heb. 8:6
Head of Church-------Eph. 1:22;
Savior---------------------2 Pet. 3:2;
Judge---------------------2 Tim. 4:1;
Giver of Life------------Jn. 10:28; 17:2;
Lord and Christ-------Acts 2:36;
and the Life
Jesus is also called equal to God as to Divinity (see Zech. 13:17; Jn. 5:17-23; 10:30-38 and 17:10. His character was Divine, as well as His Father’s. He was HOLY by birth. Muhammad was a sinner by birth, as well as all men (Ps. 51:5; Eph. 3:1-3; Rom. 5:12-21 etc.). His birth was without sin (Lk. 1:35), He was righteous by birth (Isa. 53:11; Heb. 1:9).
His character is:
“true” (Jn. 1:14; 14:6),
“just” (Jn. 5:30),
“guileless” (1 Pet. 2:22),
“sinless” (2 Cor. 5:21),
“spotless” (1 Pet. 1:19),
“innocent” (Mt. 27:4),
“harmless” (Heb. 7:26),
“obedient” (Jn. 15:10; Heb. 5:8-10),
“zealous” (Jn. 2:17),
“meek” (Mt. 11:29),
“lowly” (Mat. 11:29),
“merciful” (Heb. 2:17),
“patient” (Isa. 53:7),
“long-suffering” (1 Tim. 1:16),
“compassionate” (Mt. 15:32),
“benevolent” (Acts 10:38),
“loving” (Jn. 15:13),
“self-denying” (2 Cor. 8:9),
“humble” (Phil. 2:5-11), and
“forgiving” (Lk. 23:34).
Muhammad was the exact opposite!
JOHN 1:3; Col. 1:15-18; Heb. 1:1-3, 10; Jn. 5:19-23 and Rev. 3:14 all speak of Jesus’ works. Not only this, but worship was given to Him (see Mt. 4:9, 10; 14:33; 28:9; Lk. 33; 28:9; Lk. 24:52; Jn. 5:23; 14:14; Acts 7:59; Rom. 10:9-13; Heb. 1:6; Phil. 2:10, 11 and Rev. 5:12-14). Both humans and angels worship Him, but refuse worship themselves (see Acts 10:25, 26; Heb. 1:6 and Rev. 22:8, 9).
THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST (Spirit) are all Divine (see Mt. 28:19; Jn. 5:19-23; 14:1, 23; 17:3; Rom. 1:7; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 Jn. 5:7, 8; Rev. 5:13; 7:10 and 20:6).
Equality in Divinity
We find that John 5:19-29 and Phil. 2:5-11 speaks of this.
Have the Muslims missed all this from the UNCORRUPTED Scriptures? He, Jesus, is EXPRESSLY called “GOD”/ “LORD” in John 1:1-3; 20:28; Acts 2:36 and 20:28. Did Muhammad lie when he told those in doubt to see the people of the Book (Christians for both the Old and New Testaments; Jews for the Old Testament)?
Biblical Christianity (orthodox) holds that the two natures of Christ were COMPLETE in themselves; Jesus was both God and man fully—the “human” and “Divine” were UNITED in the ONE person of Jesus called the Christ: body, soul, spirit, and will. The (Spirit) Fatherhood of God and the (flesh) motherhood of Mary produced a single personality. Many are misled into believing that Jesus is the ONLY person in the Godhead, robbing the Father/Holy Spirit of their separate personalities. There are numerous verses that prove this out. Do your own study (but if you doubt me, write for proof).
The “Son” and “son” must be distinguished in Scripture. As “Son,” He had no beginning; as “son,” he had a beginning. Even when we find the word “Son,” it refers to His humanity. We find both “Son of God” and “Son of man”/ “son of God.” When Jesus became the “God-man,” He became man by becoming the Son/son of both Mary and God. Prophecies foretelling all this are found in Isa. 7:14; 9:6, 7; Prov. 30:4; Ps. 2:7, 12 and Heb. 1:5, 6 (see Lk. 1:31-35 also), Jesus was the “first-born,” “the only begotten Son” to be conceived by the Spirit of God. When we sinners (who are born the first time physically by corruptible seed) become “born-again” of incorruptible seed (of Christ), we have a “SPIRIT” BIRTH as well.
Actually, the Bible calls the pre-existent Son the Logos—the Word… “the Word was made flesh” (Jn. 1:14). There are those who deny “eternal Sonship,” but the 3 in 1 prove that there were 3 before the world began. The argument goes like this:
“The prophets foretold how God would become a man by being begotten, but not one ever said that a person would become a God by being begotten.” This is merely a play of words. Jesus did not become a God by being begotten, He was already God in Spirit form, even in the womb. It was God the Father who PREPARED a body for the eternal Son to be born of a woman= “son of Mary”/ “Son of God.” The problem lies with the word “begotten.” They say that God the Son had no beginning, so how can He be the “begotten Son?” This is speaking of the Son being born as a human, a son to Mary, but a Son to the Father. Jesus was never “begotten” in eternity. Father-Son-Holy Spirit, none were begotten, one “scholar” stated:
“We can prove pre-existence of Jesus Christ as God without claiming that He was in sonship all that time. We know that He was always God; He had no beginning as God; He was never born, begotten, and never had a mother, as God. He never had a Father God as deity in ages past, and never became God’s Son in any sense until, as predicted and fulfilled in Scripture.” Words are to describe things. Have we ever heard the tri-unity described as God, God, God? NO! We do know by the Scriptures that there was/is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I don’t know of anyone who believes that the “Son” from eternity was ever begotten; only on earth.
JN. 10:30 SAYS: “I and My Father are one,” not as in math, but as in unity. He was speaking to the unbelieving Jews who wanted to know who Jesus really was (10:23-39). In v. 36 we read: “…whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, ‘I am the Son of God?” (read also verses 37-39). In sending His Son into the world, He was sending Him to His death—death for the “man” Jesus, but life for the lost sinners who would accept Him.
I found this in Adam Clarke’s vol. 6, p. 694: “In 1781 a volume of the Arminian Magazine, p. 384 was published, entitled ‘An Arian Antidote;’ in this are the following words: ‘Greater or lesser in infinity, is not; inferior Godhead shocks our sense; Jesus was inferior to the Father as touching his manhood (Jn. 14:28).”
This verse reads, “…I go unto the Father: for My Father is greater than I.”
The article continues: “He was a son given, and slain intentionally from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13:8), and the firstborn from the dead of every creature (Col. 1:15, 18). But our Redeemer, from everlasting (Isa. 63:16) had not the inferior name of Son; in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God from eternity, and the Word, made flesh, was God.”
So, when we speak about the pre-existent “Son,” we’re speaking about the Word as well. That quote, of course, was pointedly against the “eternal Sonship of the Divine nature” (not by Clarke, but by another).
WHAT DOES it mean? We encounter this Greek word in Luke, John, and Hebrews (μονογενής, Strong’s G3439). Only in John is this word found to describe the relation of Jesus to God (see Jn. 1:14, 18; 3:16, 18; 1 Jn. 4:9). The total usage of this Greek word is very emphatically against taking ὡςμονογενος as a mere comparison. μονογενής denotes the origin of the Son. John speaks of Jesus as the “Son of God,” primarily in view of the man, though not exclusively the man, but the risen and pre-existent Lord. The latter comes out indisputably in 17:5, 24 (mentioned already).
Pre-existence is implied in the prayer of Jesus (v. 5) that the Father will restore the glory partly hidden during the earthly life (see v. 24; 1:1; 8:58).
We could use the words “incarnate Logos.” The Word “Son” in John is not used for the pre-existent Lord, but Christ describes His relation to God as that of a son, as some see. One can hardly argue from expressions like: “God sent His Son” (3:17; 1 John 4:9, 10; 3:16) since here the term “son” might be used proleptically, with reference only to the man. But we see from 1 Jn. 4:14 that: “The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world,” that by His sending He who was already the Son became the Savior, so that there is no room for doubt that the pre-existent Lord was already the Son. The fact that John also uses ὁλόγος for the pre-existent Lord gives us no right to assume that this ὁλόγος was for him a power of God standing in an impersonal relation to Him.
Some divide it as this: the pre-existent Lord is only the Word; the Son is only the historical and risen Lord. In John, the Lord is always the “Son”…He was God’s Son before the foundation of the world. Personally, I can’t really put it into words to make all happy. I wish the veil of mystery was lifted. I do not believe that when the Bible was penned over the centuries, that the writers had it in mind to form a Bible college with Bible doctrines all laid out like A, B, and C. The Bible is, yes, to give knowledge, but mostly to awaken faith…not to give full/complete/systematic knowledge. So, it does not HAVE TO dispel ALL mysteries. After studying the Word for 44 years now, I know very little! I’ll leave that up to the experts and scholars to explain all those mysteries. Frankly, I’m at God’s mercy in all this.
Insanity of Islam!
ALTHOUGH THE QURAN speaks of Jesus in many positive ways, Muslims murder Christians for believing in Him. Although Muhammad believed that our Holy Bible was uncorrupted, Christians die at their hands for believing in it. There is PLENTY of evidence from both the Quran and hadiths proving that Islam is a religion of intolerance, hatred, bigotry, and the sword.
LISTEN TO THE FOLLOWING SURAS:
3:19—“The religion before God is Islam” (submission, not peace!);
3:85—“If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him;”
6:125—“God will open by means of Islam the hearts of whom he will guide;”
39:22—“He receives the guidance of his Lord;”
5:3—“I have complete my favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion;”
49:17—“Count not your Islam as a favor upon me. God would confer a favor upon you.”
41:33—“Who is better in speech than one who calls to God, works righteousness, and says: I am of those who bow in Islam” (murdering innocent peoples, raping, maiming, etc. are all considered “righteousness” in Islam. Welcome to HELL!)
THERE are six suras that portray Islam’s (false) prophet as a “warner”: 7:188; 11:2; 2:119; 7:63, 69; 10:2 and 38:4. The (false) prophet says in 6:19 that “The Quran has been revealed to me that I may warn you.” It states in 6:92 that: “This is a book which we have sent down, bringing blessings and confirming what came before it…” “Confirming what came before it (the Quran)”? Why did the (false) prophet DENY Jesus’ deity?, the tri-unity? the way of salvation, etc., etc.,?
Muhammad started his own religion to compete with Christianity: this is the real truth behind Islam. Muhammad wanted to take the place of Jesus—who said: “I am the Way, the truth and the life…”—he made up his own rules as he went. He took the parts of Christianity he liked and made Islam out of it.
LET ME END this study with some of the suras (mentioned already) that prove that in Muhammad’s day that the Holy Bible was uncorrupted. As shown in this article, there were sects themselves who misinterpreted Scripture, and outright denied certain Christian doctrines. There is no denying that the monk Waraqa Ibn Naufal had a profound influence upon Islam’s (false) prophet. We can’t overlook this, as too many do. His twisted beliefs in Scripture set Muhammad off course. His belief in Jesus as merely “human,” and not “Divine,” places him among the sectarian heresy groups.
NO ONE CAN BE A GENUINE CHRISTIAN UNLESS HE/SHE:
~ believes that Jesus IS Divine, and the ONLY Savior of humankind…
~ repents of their sins and receives Christ into their lives to be both Lord and Savior…
~ and lives the life as dictated in Scripture.
In the Quran
THE FOLLOWING SURAS (chapters) and verses that tell us this include:
“Ask the People of the Book (Bible), if you do not understand this” (16:44 and 21:7);
“They are those who receive God’s guidance in the straight path. Follow their guidance” (6:90);
“There is among the people of Moses a large number of men who follow the Truth as a guide and do justice” (7:159).
(Note: not a word about dishonesty, murdering, raping, maiming, theft etc.!!)
“Among those we have created, there are people who follow the straight path, direct others with truth and dispense justice therein” (7:181). (Note: too bad he did not heed his own advice himself!);
“You will know who is on the straight way and who has received guidance” (20:135).
It is sad, really sad, that Naufal taught heresy to Muhammad (not that all was heresy though).
Sheikh Sobhi al-Salih, a Sunnite specialist in Islamic studies writes about the death of Naufal: “…and revelation dried up” (see Sheikh Sobhi al Salih, Mabahith fi al-Quran, Beirut, p. 45. Sobhi was assassinated in Beirut in 1986).
The hadiths testify to this same truth—When Naufal died, revelation/inspiration dried up for Muhammad. He (the prophet) was going to commit suicide over this. But, we’re all made to believe that Gabriel (the angel) was responsible for his revelations and inspirations. Actually, the Quran is full of confusion, not to mention the hadiths (9 volumes of them).
And with all that said and done, one last parting word: look up these suras which speak of “equality of the People of the Book” (3:64; 22:25; 16:71; 30:28 and 45:28. Muslims now murder any and all who believe in the Book (if they can get away with it!). There is no such thing in Islam as EQUALITY—only when Islam is weak; WHEN IT IS STRONG, HEADS ROLL!!!
