JESUS–TRINITY OR QUINTITY
Christians say that Jesus is God; and that Father (God) Son (Jesus) and Holy Ghost/Spirit are one and the same entity. And (noting the applicable portions) the Gospels state: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee (Mary)…and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee” and “that which is CONCEIVED in her (Mary) is of the Holy Ghost”–(Luke 1:35; Matt. 1:20).
If Jesus is God then Jesus (as the Holy Ghost and as the Highest) came upon his OWN mother and effected his OWN conception with HIS MOTHER. This is incest.
God, Holy Ghost and Jesus committed incest???
Trinity (that God incarnated Himself as Jesus; and which some Christians view as being from “Satan”) –which puts God into the womb (of a woman He created), brings Him out her vagina, nurses from her “paps” and circumcises His foreskin (making God unclean: Job 4:17; 25:4; and making Adam and Eve and Melchisedec –Hebrews 7:1-3– cleaner than God as they were not born); and God needing to eat butter and honey “that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”-(Isaiah 7:14-15) is blasphemy of the highest order.
Following and worshipping a God/Son of God that needs to eat butter and honey in order to “refuse the evil, and choose the good” must be the biggest mocking-stock and butt of the biggest joke in the intellectual world since creation.
“Certainly they disbelieve who
say: Allāh, He is the Messiah, son of
Mary. And the Messiah said:
O Children of Israel, serve Allāh, my
Lord and your Lord. Surely whoever
associates (others) with Allāh, Allāh
has forbidden to him the Garden and
his abode is the Fire. And for the
wrongdoers there will be no helpers.”
“Certainly they disbelieve who say:
Allāh is the third of the three.
And there is no God but One God.
And if they desist not from what they
say, a painful chastisement will surely
befall such of them as disbelieve.”
There is no place in the Bible where GOD or JESUS says God incarnated Himself as Jesus –that God went into the belly of Mary (and how? as a sperm? and whose? or how did He?), went through the stages of fetal development, emerged from her vagina, nursed her breasts, and had Himself circumcised (and for what purpose) which would make God “Son of Mary” and Mary “Mother of God.” And clearly, a woman could not be “mother of God;” God being First and Creator of all could not have a “mother.”
The Bible–(Job 4:17; 25:4) states: “shall a man be more pure than his maker?” “How then can man be justified with God? or HOW CAN HE BE CLEAN THAT IS BORN OF A WOMAN?” in which event, according to Christians, Adam, Eve, and “Melchisedec” not born from a woman would be cleaner than God. (Heb. 7:1-3) (Jehovah’s Witnesses reject Trinity.
As Jesus is said to be God and as he was born of a woman, Jesus is a God of the womb –Christians worship a womb-God).
There is NO Trinity!
GOD DECREED that Jesus is only to be “CALLED” Son of God: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee (Mary)….the holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be CALLED the Son of God”–(Luke 1:35).
As Jesus is only “CALLED” son of God then ipso facto there could NOT be a Trinity –as Trinity is based on there being an actual son of God and there was/is NO actual son of God!
Son of God is only an epithet of honor: “the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David….I will be his father, and he shall be my son”–(2 Samuel 7:4, 5, 14).
The Bible is pregnant with sons of God.
Allāh referring to Himself as “We” in the Qur’an does not mean Trinity –that there is more personality in the God-head. “God speaks of Himself usually in the first person plural “We,” Yusuf Ali explains, “it is the plural of respect and honor, and is used in human language in Royal proclamations and decrees”–(comm. #56). If “We” meant Trinity, Allāh would not have condemned Trinity as ‘blasphemy’–(Qur’an 5:76).
Again, if “We” meant Trinity, Christian Arabs, who know the language, would already have made an issue out of it.
Allāh God, does not incarnate–(Qur’an 42:51; 17:95). Only man can be a model for man. God in whatever form is still God –an ape regardless of cosmetic surgery is still an ape. Hindus have Trinity –Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Romans had Trinity –Juno, Jupiter, and Minerva.Christians’ Trinity consists of Father (God), Son (Jesus) and Holy Ghost who is unnamed (he could be named Jasper, making it Jehovah, Jesus, and Jasper).
For Jesus’ birth it is said: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon” Mary and “the power of the Highest” shall overshadow” her, and “that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost”–(Luke 1:35; Matt. 1:20).
If Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one, Jesus as the Holy Ghost conceived himself: Mary’s conception was effected by her own son.
God said:“Let us make man”–(Gen. 1:26). Like “We” (noted above), “Us” is “the plural of respect and honor.”
There could not be Trinity before creation. Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud B.D. –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– points out:
“The Christians….make the Creator a divine father and His word a divine son; and also, because He breathed life into His creatures, He is surnamed a divine Spirit, forgetting that logically, He could not be father before creation, nor “son” before He spoke, and neither “Holy Ghost” before He gave life.”1
Trinity is likened to H2O –as water, steam and ice have the underlying formula H2O, likewise the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, though different, are one.
But, unlike the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost who are in separate existence at the one and same time –Jesus on land, the Holy Spirit as a dove in the air, and “God’s” voice in heaven (Matt. 3: 16-17; Luke 3:21-23)– when H2O is in the form of water, steam and ice are non-existent (steam and ice are not water), when H2O is the form of steam, water and ice are non-existent (water and ice are not steam), when H2O is in the form of ice, water and steam are non-existent (water and steam are not ice).
Trinity is likened to “man” in which the body, soul, and spirit are one (though some might argue that man is comprised of four elements: body through which sensations are experienced, life which gives growth as in plants, animals, and humans, soul which gives consciousness as in animals and humans, and spirit which gives wisdom/intelligence as in humans).
But, unlike Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (each a complete being and having independent existence), body, soul and spirit are not each a complete being having independent existence –together they are one.
Trinity is also likened to the “tango” in which “The Father was likened to the leader, the Son to the follower and the Spirit to the music that melodically unites all three in their movement.”2 (The Devil certainly has Christians doing the foot-works. This dance should be nicknamed “Christian shuffle”’ or “Trini-coction” short for Trinity concoction).
To implement 1+1+1=1, and 1 divided by 3=1 is to commit mathematical homicide.
One pastor advises his flock on the “mysterious” Trinity: “Don’t get caught up in the Biblical language trying to accommodate a mystery to finite mind.”3
But according to his God, Jesus, there is no “mystery” in heaven; Jesus said in explanation as to why he spoke in parables: “Because it is given unto you (Jews) to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them (Gentiles) it is not given”–(Matt. 13:11; Mark 4:11). Of course this clarity in heaven as Jesus says is not for non-Jews, because he was sent only for Jews.
Thus, whereas for two thousand years Gentile followers of Jesus are bridled in “darkness and misunderstanding” about the “mysteries” of heaven, Jews, cognizant of this clearness –for all their ‘stiffneckedness,’ ‘straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel,’ and even choosing death4– would have no feast on this Christians’ “camel”: in this fallacy and blasphemy of Trinity, Divine sonship, inherited sin and vicarious atonement.
An attempt by another source to show that Trinity is monotheism and not polytheism notes Genesis 1:26 where God said “Let US make man in our image,” arguing that if “us” meant that Father, Son and Holy Ghost were more than one being, God should have said let us make man in our “images” (plural) instead of “image” (singular).
If man (which would leave woman out as she has different anatomy and physiology) is made in the physical “image” of God, God would be flesh and bones or, as God is Spirit, man should be spirit (unseen).
Man is made in the spiritual “image” of God; to reflect the nature of God, as Allāh tells us–(Qur’an 3:82; 30:30), to be loving, merciful, forgiving, etc; as the Prophet Mohammad exhorts us: imbue yourself with Divine Attributes.
God referring to Himself as “us” is an expression of majesty. If this “us” is taken to mean God was calling on another (such as Jesus as Christians say), this would mean He was calling on a separate being which would make Godhead polytheistic.
That “image” (singular) is no indication that Trinity is monotheistic is also gleaned from the fact that as flesh and blood cannot exist in heaven and as the Father and Holy Ghost are Spirit, the Son also would be Spirit –all would be Spirit as they are said to be one– thus it would be pointless for God to say let “us” make man in our “images” (plural) when all three of them would be of the same “image” (Spirit).
After the camouflages are peeled away Trinitarians are exposed for what they are: polytheists.
Even if Trinity was like H2O, tango, and man this would not make it truth, as there is no such teaching by Jesus or any other prophet of God. Trinity is a fourth-century human concoction. Trinity “developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies;” it was formulated by the “Council of Nicaea in 325” and “refined” to its present form “by the end of the 4th century.” Not surprising some Christians view Trinity as a “senseless God-dishonoring doctrine.” (Details later)
Whereas some Bibles have the verse of 1 John 5:7: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (which is assumed to be Trinity) the Gideons New American Standard Bible (1973) does not have this verse (whose Bible is the correct one?)
Significantly, this statement was NOT made by Jesus, but by John. It does not mean Father, Word (as Jesus is referred to) and Holy Ghost are one: it means the “record” of these three is “one”–i.e. they are in agreement: they do not contradict the other. (In other words, the words that the prophet teaches his people are the words that he received from the angel of revelation, which words were given to the angel by God).5
Jesus said: “I proceedeth forth and came from God”–(John 8:42. This is not restricted to Jesus; everyone “proceedeth forth and come from God;” shown later.Jesus said “no man hath ascended up to heaven…even the Son of man WHICH IS IN HEAVEN”–John 3:13.
Since Jesus is on earth and the Son of man is yet in heaven, then clearly this Son of man will also “proceed forth and come from God”).
Isaiah 7:14 and Matthew 1:23 state that Jesus’ NAME shall be Immanuel/Emmanuel, which is “INTERPRETED” to mean “God with us.” Notably, only the NAME“ Immanuel” is “INTERPRETED” to mean “God with us,” NOT that Immanuel/Jesus is “God with us.”
Significantly; whereas Luke 1:35 states Jesus shall be “CALLED” “SON” of God, Isaiah and Matthew state Jesus is named “GOD” with us.” If these names are literal, Jesus could not be “SON” of God and yet be GOD and yet “proceeded forth and CAME FROM GOD” and be “SENT” by God.
As only Jesus’ NAME means “God with us” Jesus is NOTGod and he could NOT beGod!
Isaiah 7:14-15 speaking about Immanuel says: “Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.”
It would be ludicrous to the extreme to cerebrate that God or Son of God needs to eat “Butter and honey” in order to refuse evil and choose good.
Luke 2:52 states: “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with GOD and MAN.” It is gross absurdity to entertain that God needs to increase in wisdom and stature and to find favour with man. And if Jesus was God, God would be finding favor with himself. Since more than half the world –atheists and non-Christians– does not accept Jesus as vicarious atoner (at least) it is doubtful the Christian’s God, Jesus, would ever find “favour” with (all) man.
Jesus said “I and my Father are one” means he and God are one in purpose; as all prophets are “one” with God, as they do as they are commanded by God–(John 10:30; 12:49; 14:10). Jesus also said “I pray for them (Jews) I pray not for the world…That they may all be one; as Thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also my be one in us”–(John 17:9-21).
If Jesus is God because he said he and his Father are “one,” then the Jews he is praying for so that they also could be “one” “in us” would also be God. (Mothers and fathers who raise their children in Godliness, in this respect, may rightly claim that they and God are “one,” as it is God’s purpose to have us live in Godliness).
Christians take Jesus’ figurative expressions literally and his literal expressions, such as to sell your garments and buy swords and which sword cut off the soldier’s literal ear, figuratively.
(One Christian [taken from a “forwarded” e-mail] argues: “God put the seed that was necessary in the womb of Mary so that a baby could develop. When the Bible calls Jesus “Son of God” it means that He came to do God’s will perfectly as a son would obey his father. Jesus fulfilled the ROLE of a son. It also means that Jesus had the nature of God. A horse produces a horse; a camel produces a camel. A human produces a human, and God produces God.”
If “God produces God” as horses produce horses, and as horses etc; generally, had to engage in sex to do this, and as God did not have sex with Mary (Astaghferullah!). how could Jesus be God? Scientist who “put the seed that was necessary in the womb of” sheep is not the father of the offspring of the sheep, and the offspring is not the son [or daughter] of the scientist; nor is the newborn sheep human as the scientist. And how did God “put the seed” “in the womb” of Mary; and where did God say this in the Bible?
Why are Christian(s) blaspheming against God? do they not know the penalty for blasphemy against God is eternal punishment in the fire that shall never be quenched, as Jesus said–(Mark 3:29; 9:43)?
And if horses and camels produce, respectively, horses and camels and “God produces God,” then, according to this Christian, the first horses and camels and all other first creatures, having been produced by God, must also all be Gods and “had the nature of God.”
Again, if “God produces God” then Jesus should not be flesh and blood, he should have been “Spirit” as God is–John 4:24). And If Jesus came to do “God’s will perfectly” why did he pray to great sweat to be spared death, and why did he blaspheme from the cross that God had “forsaken” him?
That God “gave” Jesus to be “crucified” for sinners and for him to pray pitifully to be spared from this glory and to indict God as having “forsaken” him must be the blackest degree of disgrace exampled by a son of God in Scriptural history.
Incidentally, Allāh says He gave to Jesus the Injil. However, the Gospels that Christians have, though it may contain words of Jesus, is NOT the Injil. The Gospels that Christians have are four books “ACCORDING TO” Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and tailored to suit King James–“King James Version.” They are NOT “according to” God or Jesus, or God’s or Jesus’ “Version”– For a history of the Old and New Testaments See Bible corrupt & obsolete.
Notably, in John 17:9-21 Jesus says he prays for the Jews NOT for the world. This is because God sent Jesus only to the Jews; NOT to the White and the Black and the Brown and the Red and the Yellow. See Jesus-only for Jews).
Jesus says: “I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God”–(John 20:17).
If Jesus is God, the Jews, having the same Father as Jesus, must also be God(s).
Jesus saying, “he that hath seen me hath seen the Father,” means that whoever saw his works (of miracles) has seen the miracles of God; for Jesus performed miracles through the power of God–(John 14:9, 10; Luke 11:20; Acts 2:22).
1 John 5:7 states: “For there are three that BEAR RECORD in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (which is assumed to be Trinity. Notably, the Gideons New American Standard Bible, 1973, does NOT have this verse; whose Bible is right?).
Significantly, this statement was NOT made by Jesus, but by John. It does not mean Father, Word (as Jesus is referred to) and Holy Ghost are one, it means the “RECORD” of these three is “one” –i.e. they are in agreement –the words the prophet teaches are the words he received from the angel of revelation, which words were given to the angel by God.
On the Day of Judgment these three will bear witness against man. God will bear witness He sent guidance; the Angel will bear witness he delivered the guidance to the prophet; the prophet(s) will bear witness he delivered the message to his people; thus these three “witnesses” will be “one” or same: that is, that Divine Message was given to man.
On the Day of Judgment people will be called with their respective prophet(s); the prophets will testify they delivered God’s message. Thus, Jesus admonished his followers: “Many will say to me in that day (of Judgment), Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU; DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY”–(Matt. 7:22-23).
Which words of Jesus finds consonance in Qur’an 5:116-117: “And when Allāh will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allāh? He will say….I said to them naught save as Thou didst command me: Serve Allāh, my Lord and your Lord….”
In Exodus 3:14 God says His name is “I AM.” In John 8:58 Jesus says: “Before Abraham was, I am.”
This “I am” of Jesus does not mean that Jesus is saying he is God. All Jesus is saying is that before Abraham was, I am before Abraham –where the “before Abraham” is understood; much like instead of saying I am taller than he is tall, it is said I am taller than him, or I am taller than he is. (Notably, God’s “I AM” is capital letters, Jesus’ is not. God’s name is also “Jealous” –Exodus 34:14).
Jesus being before Abraham refers to him pre-existing Abra-ham as Solomon pre-existed Jesus–(Prov. 8:23-35). And Jere-miah says: “the word of the Lord came unto me saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee”–(Jeremiah 1:5).
Every person had a pre-existence. And we took an oath with Allāh before we were sent into the world. Allāh reminds us of this in His Qur’-an: “And when thy Lord brought forth from the children of Adam, from their loins, their descendants, and made them bear witness about themselves: Am I not your Lord? They said: Yes; we bear witness. Lest you should say on the day of Resurrection: We were unaware of this, Or (lest) you should say: Only our fathers ascribed partners (to Allah) before (us), and we were (their) descendants after them. Wilt Thou des-troy us for what liars did?”–(Qur’an 7:172-173).
Thus, not only Jesus but everyone “proceedeth forth and come from God.”
The Gospel of John 1:1-5 says: “In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”(There is NO mention of the third party of the Trinity, the “Holy Ghost”).
That the Word was “with God” and the Word “was God” is the same as saying God was with God. The word could not be with God and yet be God. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din notes:
“The term word, used in St. John, which stands for the Greek word Logos, is an in-adequate rendering. In all his writings Philo speaks of Logos,–a philosophic conception of later growth and a development of the “Idea of Plato,” in his theory of Emanation. It does not mean Word; it conveys “Thought as well as expression.” Plato, when dealing with the subject, spoke of something –as the first thing in creation that may be styled “Reason or Wisdom”– the first product of Herbert Spencer’s “First Intelligent Cause.”
Notably, Philo “lived and wrote all this one hundred years before the writers, whosoever they may be, of that Gospel.” (The Sources of Christianity, pp. 76-77).
Jesus is “a” word, NOT “the” word, from Allāh–(Qur’an 3:44). “Word” is not exclusive to Jesus. The words of Allāh are so numerous that if all the trees were pens, and the sea with seven more seas added to it were ink, to write the words of Allāh, they would all be exhausted before the words of Allah would be exhausted –(Qur’an 31:27; 18:109. See Qur’an 6:34, 10:64, 66:12 for “words” of Allāh).
Everything created must be a “word” of Allāh; the Bible also teaches this where God decreed creation by saying “Let there be…”–(Gen. 1:3-25).
Jesus as “word” means “promise,” as Allāh had promised Mary to give her a son–(Qur’an 3:45; Luke 1:26-32).
Jesus made it clear he is not God: “Why callest thou me good? there is NONE good but one, that is GOD”–(Matt. 19:17; Mark 10:18). Jesus not only denies he is God, he denies he is good.
If Jesus is God:
-God is sitting on his right hand–(Mark 16:19).
-God ascended to himself–(John 20:17).
-God led himself to be tempted by the devil–(Matt. 4:1).
-God sent himself to Jews–(John 6:38; 17:3).
-God would have known the day and hour of future events–(Mark 13:32).
-God is made into a “curse”–(Gal. 3:13; Deut. 21:23).
-God prayed to himself; “forsaken,” thanked, heard and worshipped himself–(Matt; 26:39; 27: 46; Luke 10:21; John 11:41; 4:22. Whereas Jesus prayed to and worshipped God, Christians pray to and worship Jesus.
Jesus said he “proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He sent me”–(John 8:42. This statement by Jesus clearly and conclusively shows that Jesus is NOT God and could NOT be God!).
That Jesus “proceeded forth and came from God” is not restricted to Jesus. Everything in creation “proceeded forth and came from God,” from light to the heavens and earth and all vegetation and creatures–(Genesis 1:1-31; 2:1-25); and God said to the prophet Jeremiah: “BEFOREI formed thee in the belly I knew thee”–(Jeremiah 1:5).
Who then is Jesus and what then is Christianity? No one seems to know:
● Arianism –after Arius, a fourth century Christian priest– “affirmed that Christ is not truly divine but a created being. The fundamental premise of Arius was the uniqueness of God, who is alone self-existent and immutable; the Son, who is not self-existent cannot be God.”6
(This truth of Arian fired the wrath of his opponents. As noted, Jesus is only “CALLED” Son of God;and God has a legion of sons and daughters. And unlike God, Jesus was subjected to the laws of human nature: birth, growth, eating etc; and he had no knowledge about future events–Mark 13:32; Acts 1:7).
● The Unitarians and Universalists “generally agree that God is One and thus deny the divinity of Christ and the doctrine of the Trinity.”7
● The “I Am movement” –a religious movement in the U.S. which “begun in the 1930s by Guy Ballard” and “his wife, Edna,” and named after God who told Moses that His name is I AM (Ex. 3:14)– “essentially taught that the power of the Mighty I Am was available to individuals through many Ascended Masters, the principal ones being Jesus and St. Germain. The Ascend-ed Masters spoke through their special representatives on earth, the Accredited Messengers, who were Edna and Guy Ballard and their son, Donald.”8
Thus according to the “I Am movement” Jesus was NOT God but only a prophet or servant of God
(Note, St. Germain is said to have ascended to heaven; which would make it four individuals who ascended to heaven: St. Germain, Elijah,9 Enoch,10 and Jesus11 though the verses about Jesus’ Ascension etc; are shown to be “forgeries” in the Bible. Yet Jesus says no man hath ascended to heaven –John 3:13. The Zoroastrian’s Arta/Artay Viraf is said to have ascended to heaven. Buddha is said to have ascended to heaven and will return to restore the world to happiness. If Buddha and Jesus were to return to lord the world the two might have to battle for supremacy).
● Whereas some Coptic Christians believe Jesus was of “dual nature” others believed in Jesus as being “Monophysite,” i.e. “the doctrine that Christ is not “in two natures”(human and divine), but is “one nature out of two natures.””12
(Notably, these are Christian conjectures. Whatare these “two natures” from which Jesus came? If Jesus is from the Father and the Holy Ghost aren’t the Father and the Holy Ghost of the same “nature”–Spirit? In which event Jesus should also be Spirit. And if Jesus is from God and Mary isn’t Mary of flesh and blood, and can Spirit and flesh procreate?)
● Catholics believe in Trinity. Britannica notes:
“Trinity, the doctrine of God taught by Christianity that asserts that God is one in essence but three in “person,” Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Neither the word Trinity, nor the explicit doctrine as such, appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Sheema of the Old Testament: “Hear. O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord” (Deut. 6:4). The earliest Christians, however, had to cope with the implications of the coming of Jesus Christ and of the presence and power of God among them –i.e. the Holy spirit whose coming was connected with the celebration of the Pentecost. The Father, Son, and Holy Spiritwere associated in such New Testament passages as the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19) and in the apostolic benediction: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellow-ship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (II Cor. 13:14). Thus, the New Testament established the basis for the doctrine of Trinity.
The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies. Initially, both the requirements of monotheism inherited from the Old Testament and the implications of the need to interpret the biblical teaching to Greco-Roman paganism seemed to demand that the divine in Christ as the Word, or Logos, be interpreted as subordinate to the Supreme Being. An alternative solution was to interpret Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three modes of the self-disclosure of the one God but not as distinct within the being of God itself. The first tendency recognized the distinctness among the three, but at the cost of their equality and hence of their unity (subordinationism); the second came to terms with their unity, but at the cost of their distinctness as “persons” (modalism). It was not until the 4th. century that the distinctness of the three and their unity were brought together in a single orthodox doctrine of one essence and three persons.
The Council of Nicaea in 325 stated the crucial formula for that doctrine in its confession that the Son is “of the same essence [homoousios] as the Father,” even though it said very little about the Holy Spirit. Over the next half century, Athanasius defended and refined the Nicene formula, and, by the end of the 4th. Century, under the leadership of Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa, and Gregory of Nazianzus (the Cappadocian Fathers) the doctrine of the Trinity took substantially the form it has maintained ever since.”13
Understand now why two thousand years after Christ Christians are wandering in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion as to who Jesus is and his mission?
Christians try to explain the non-existent.
No one is able to explain the Trinity:
“Early in the Christian era the Devil got in his work for the purpose of confusing men concerning these very questions. The clergy have at all times posed as the representatives of God on earth. Satan overreached the minds of these clergymen and injected into their minds doctrines, which doctrines the clergy have taught the people concerning Jesus and his sacrifice. These doctrines have brought great confusion. The apostles taught the truth, but it was not long after their death until the Devil found clergyman wise in his own conceit who thought he could teach more than the inspired apostles.
“The doctrine of the trinity was first introduced into the Christian church by a clergyman of Antioch named Theophilus. The doctrine so taught by that clergyman, and which since has been followed by others, is in brief, that there are three gods in one, to wit, God the Father, God the son, and God the holy ghost, all three in power, substance and eternity.”a
“A council of the clergy was held at Nicea, in 325 A.D. which council confirmed the doctrine of trinity, and later a similar council at Constantinople, by conforming the divinity of Holy Ghost and the unity of God, declared the doctrine of the trinity in unity to be the doctrine of the church. The clergy have ever held to this senseless God-dishonoring doctrine …If you ask a clergyman what is meant by the trinity he says: “That is mystery.” He does not know, and no one else knows, because it is false. Never was there a more deceptive doctrine advanced than that of the trinity. It could have originated only in one mind, and that the mind of Satan the Devil.”b 14
Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud B.D. –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– notes:
“More than sixteen Ecumenical Councils have been summoned to define the religion of Christianity, only to be discovered by the Synod of the Vatican in the nineteenth century that the mysteries of the “Infalli-bility” and the “Immaculate Conception” were two of the principal dogmas, both unknown to the Apostle Peter and the Blessed Virgin Mary! Any faith or religion dependent upon the deliberations and decisions of General Synods –holy or heretical– is artificial and human. The religion of Islam is the belief inone Allāh and absolute resignation to His will, and this faith is professed by the angels in heaven and by the Muslims on earth. It is the religion of sanctification and of enlightenment, and an impregnable bulwark against idolatry.”15
Reason would dictate that human invention cannot give life in heaven. (Ask yourself: “How can I go to heaven by following doctrines God did not reveal?”)
In trying to explain Trinity Christians are trying to explain not only the inexplicable but trying to explain the non-existent; and in trying to solemnize Trinity they are trying to legitimize ‘blasphemy’–(Qur’an 5:76).
Those who lead others astray will, in the Hereafter, bear part of the punishment of those without knowledge whom they misled–Qur’an 16:25; 29:12-13).
Allāh God, calls on us to belief through reason, arguments and examples. He reveals:
“The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a messenger; messengers before him had indeed passed away. And his mother was a truthful woman. They both used to eat food. See how We make the messages clear to them! Then behold, how they are turned away (from the truth)” –(Qur’an 7:78).
On the alleged Divinity of Jesus. In the tenth year of the Hijrah, the Prophet Mohammad had a discussion with the Christians of Najran. This dialogue is noted by Khwaja Nazir Ahmad in his book Jesus in Heaven on Earth, (pp. 174-176)– (footnotes to this narrative are omitted):-
“The last objection of the Christians is that the Holy Qur’an cites the case of Adam as a parallel to that of Jesus; therefore Jesus, like Adam, was without a father. They urge that Jesus was created, like Adam, by a Divine Command: kun fa yakoon.
In this connection Christian critics of Islam refer to the following Qur’anic verse:
Surely the likeness of Jesus is with Allah as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, Be, and he was. (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of the disputers-(Qur’an 3:58-59).
All commentators of the Holy Qur’an, ancient and modern, agree that these verses, along with some others, were revealed when the Holy Prophet was having a discussion with the Christians of Najran in the tenth year of the Hijra. This deputa-tion consisted of sixty men and was headed by Abdul Masih, the chief of the Christians of Najran.
The discussion took place in the Mosque of the Holy Prophet where the visitors had been lodged and permitted to hold their own prayers. In Sirat-ul-Halabi the visit of this deputation is described in full detail. The point at issue was the divinity of Jesus. (The plural pronoun “They” was used throughout to indicate that Abdul Masih was speaking on behalf of himself and his companions). (Emphasis added).
“Abdul Masih, the leader of the Christians, opened the dis-cussion and enquired from the Holy Prophet:
They said: What do you think of our Lord (Sahib)? The Messenger of God enquired: “Who is your Lord?”
They replied: Isa. Do you take him to be a servant of God?
The Messenger of God said: “Yes.”
They then asked: “Have you seen anyone like him, or have you been informed of a man like him? He is God because he had no father, he raised the dead, he gave information of the un-seen, he cured lepers and made birds from clay. Consider this superiority. Do you still call him a servant of God?”
The Holy Prophet did not answer at once for at that very moment came the Divine revelation and one of the verses revealed was:
Surely the likeness of Jesus is with Allāh as the likeness of Adam; He created him from dust, then said, Be, and he was. (Qur’an 3:59)
It may be noticed that the verse does not say that the creation of Jesus was like that of Adam. I now quote the discussion from Tafsir Ibn Jarir at-Tabari where it is recorded in full detail under this very verse:
They questioned: “Who was his father?”
The Messenger of God replied: “Don’t you know that no child is born but has a likeness to its father in form and appearance?”
They said: “Yes, we know.”
The Messenger of God said: “Don’t you know that our God is alive and will never die and Jesus had to die?”
They said: “Yes, we know.”
The Messenger of God said: “Don’t you know that our God is One to Whom everything submits. He is the Custodian and Guardian of all and He gives sustenance to everyone?”
They replied: “Yes, we know.”
The Messenger of God questioned: “Was Jesus possessed of any of these powers?”
They replied: “No.”
The Messenger of God then asked: “Did Jesus know of any of these things except those of which God gave him knowledge?”
They answered: “No.”
The Messenger of God said: “Don’t you know that our God neither eats, nor drinks, nor does He answer the calls of nature?”
They said: “Yes, we know.”
Then said the Messenger of God: “Don’t you know that Jesus was conceived by a woman just as any other woman conceives a child, then she gave birth to him like every other woman gives birth to a child, he was then reared up like other children, then he used to eat and drink and answer the calls of nature like other human beings?”
They said: “Yes, we know.”
The Messenger of God then enquired: “How can Messiah be the One you take him to be (i.e. God)?
Rabi narrates that the Christians could not reply to this question, but would not agree either and insisted on their false belief. As a last resort the Holy Prophet invited them in the terms of the revelation:
“But whoever disputes with you in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come! let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women, and our people and your people, then let us be earnest in prayer and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars”–(Qur’an 3:61).
The Christians wanted time to consider the challenge and on the next day Abdul Masih and two of his companions informed the Holy Prophet that they had decided not to accept it, and that they would not pray against him nor invite him to pray against them. Thereupon an agreement was entered into whereby they were made free to practise their religion.”
Jesus having performed miracles through the POWER OF GOD–(Luke 11:20; John 8:28, 11:42; Acts 2:22; Qur’an 3:48), Jesus could not be God.
There were others that performed miracles:
-Moses–(Exodus 7:10; 14:21)
-Elijah–(1 Kings 17:17-23; 2 Kings 2:7-8)
-Elisha–(2 Kings 2:12-14; 2 Kings 4:32-36)
-False Christs and false prophets can perform miracles–(Matt. 24:24).
Even things performed miracles:
-the pool at Bethesda–(John 5:2-4);
-the river Jordan–(2 Kings 5:9-14);
-Elisha’s dead bones–(2 Kings 13:20-21);
Thus if Jesus performing miracles make him God; all these others must also be Gods.
The Gospels state: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee (Mary)…and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee” and “that which is conceived in her (Mary) is of the Holy Ghost”–(Luke 1:35; Matt. 1:20).
If Jesus is God and one in a Trinity with God, and as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are said to be one, then Jesus, as the Holy Ghost and as the Highest, came upon his own mother and effected his own conception (with his mother). (?)
The Gospels state that at the baptism of Jesus “the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a DOVE upon him, and a VOICE came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased”–(Luke 3:21-22. Though the “beloved” son blasphemed from the cross that the Father had “forsaken” him).
Bear in mind Jesus was on land, the “dove” in the air, and “a” voice from heaven –all are in separate forms and existences– thus Father, Son and Holy Ghost cannot be “one.” (That 1+1+1=1, and 1 divided by 3=1 is mathematical homicide).
Significantly, the verse says “A” voice came from heaven. But Jesus said about God: “Ye have NEITHER heard his voice at ANY TIME, nor seen his shape”–(John 5:37).
Whereas Jesus was only a messenger of God sent to the Israelites to call them to “repentance” and “forgiveness”, Christians consigned Jesus to the bed of celibacy, crowned him with Divinity and made him scapegoat for non-existent inherited sin; and whereas David was material king Christians make Jesus spiritual king of future-world. (See Jesus-like David; Jesus-foretold; Jesus-1000-year rule).
Jesus says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free (from lies, falsehood, and blasphemy). And the Divine truth is, Jesus was a prophet of God and “THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLĀH; MOHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLĀH!”
Jesus says in John 14:12-14: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; (man can do greater works than God/Son of God?) because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
Instead of trying to convince the more-than-one-billion Muslims that Jesus is God, that he died on the cross (for inherited sin) and that Muslims are to follow the Gospels –and only the uneducated, the gullible, and the unthinking would believe these and kiss the useless and unGodly crucifix– Christians would be better served by asking Jesus to grant abundance to the world’s starving and destitute; and for Jesus to heal/cure all those, especially children, afflicted with cancer and suffering other chronic ailments/diseases.
Are you Christians loathe to ask Jesus on behalf of these unfortunate “children of God”? Or do you Christians not believe/trust the word of your God/Son of God that he will do “whatsoever” you “shall ask in” his “name” and alleviate the maladies of man?

5. That the witness of God, his prophet and the angel that brings revelation are “one.” On the Day of Judgment all people will be called with their respective prophet(s); the prophets will testify that they delivered God’s message as given to them. Thus, Jesus admonished his followers: “Many will say to me in that day (of Judgment),Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU; DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY”–(Matthew 7:22-23).
Which words of Jesus finds consonance in the Qur’an 5:116-117.“And when Allāh will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allāh? He will say: Glory be to Thee! It was not for me to say what I had no right to say…I said to them naught save as Thou didst command me: Serve Allāh, my Lord and your Lord (comp. Mark 12:29); and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when Thou didst cause me to die Thou wast the Watcher over them. And Thou art witness of all things.”
