LIGHT OF THE WORLD
Jesus said: “I am the light of the world;” “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world”–(John 8:12; 9:5).
Evidently, as Jesus is no longer in the world he is no longer the light of the world; and he could not be greater than Mohammad, who, as Allāh, God, tells us in His Qur’an, is the best exemplar,1 that if we want Allāh to love us and forgive us our sins we must follow the Prophet;2 that the Prophet is the light-giving sun;3 that Mohammad (and all prophets) are sinless;4 that Mohammad will be given the right to intercession on the Day of Judgment;5 that He guides Mohammad in the Right Way;6 that Mohammad purifies;7 that Mohammad attained perfection;8 that Mohammad is to be honored/revered9 and is blessed by Allāh and His angels.10
Neither was Jesus the only light of the world; he says to his followers: “Ye are the light of the world”–(Matthew 5:14). Every righteous person is a “light of the world”: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”–(Matthew 5:16).
(Christians may be doing good works, but they do not glorify God; Christianity is lies, falsehood and blasphe-my; Christians glorify paganism. See CHRISTIANITY-A FAKE; CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE; ALLAH & JESUS OR PAUL).
While Jesus was light only so long as he was in the world, Mohammad is the ever-present “light-giving sun”–(Qur’an 33:45-46). Clearly, Mohammad is the “Light” for all time to the Day of Judgment.
(Christians can reject Mohammad but Christians cannot refute Mohammad’s claim to Divine Messengership. In fact, of all the claimants to Divine Messengership, Jesus included, Mohammad is the only one who can substan-tiate his claim; the Qur’an –with its PROPHECIES [which have already manifested]; SCIENTIFIC pronouncements [which have been verified], and inimitability [Qur’an 2:23; 10:38; 11:13; 17:88; 52:33]– is his proof.
In fact, the Qur’an is not only proof of Mohammad’s Divine Messengership it is a refutation of atheism, for no man in Mohammad’s time could have known about some of the things that Mohammad taught.
Moreover, given the humanness of theBIBLEand the clouds of conjectures surrounding the existence of Jesus (see CHRISTIANITY-A FAKE), but for the Qur’an/Islam/ Mohammad Jesus may have long since been relegated to the bin of myths and legends.
It is the Qur’an/Islam/Mohammad that is keeping Jesus alive; and not only keeping him alive but has cleansed him and his mother, Mary, of the calumnies of “bastard” and “adulteress,” respectively, hurled on them by Jewish Fathers, and appareled them in rubious robes of righ-teousness and have secured for them today the unflag-ging allegiance of some one-and-one-half billion Mus-lims. And counting as Islam spirits on. Inexorably! In-vincibly! Impregnably! As Divinely decreed! To prevail over all religions! Allāh God truly is Great! Subhana Rabbayyal-A’laa! )
The Gospel of Matthew 1:21 states, “he (Jesus) shall save his people from their sins.” And Jesus’ people are the Jews; and he saved his people from their sins by calling them to repentance and forgiveness:
-“I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to REPENTANCE” (not to vicarious atonement)–(Matthew 9:13).
-“And when ye stand praying, FORGIVE, if ye have anything against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may FORGIVE you your trespasses, But if you do NOT forgive, NEITHER will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses”–(Mark 11:25-26; Luke 17:3-4).
-“When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven… FORGIVE US OUR SINS; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but DELIVER US FROM EVIL”–(Luke 11:2-4).
-“I tell you…except ye REPENT, ye shall all likewise perish”–(Luke 13:3, 5).
-“I say unto you, there is JOY in the presence of the angels of God over ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH”–(Luke 15:10).
-“The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation (of Jews) and shall condemn it: because they REPENTED at the preaching of Jonas; and behold, a greater than Jonas is here” (that is to say, the people of Jonas repented but Jews do not repent even though Jesus who is greater than Jonas is preaching to them)–(Matthew 12:41).
As Jesus’ people were the Jews, thus Jesus was “light” only for his people, Jews.
Even if Jesus was the only light of the world yet this would not make him Divine or vicarious atoner.
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. (See JESUS-LIKE DAVID).
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 sent ONLY FOR JEWSand to foretell the coming of the COMFORTER(MOHAMMAD)who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide forever” and whom all are to follow; and
“THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLĀH;
MOHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLĀH!”
While Allāh, God, would not call us to account for that which we do not know, when knowledge comes to us what reason or excuse can we have for not accepting and follow it? “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVERforgiveness but is in danger of ETERNAL DAMNATION”–(Mark 3:29).
While we are alive we have the grand opportunity to repent and have eternal life in Paradise. When we die there is no second chance.
