JESUS IS NOT THE ANSWER
While as prophet of God Jesus gave truth, who is it that is the answer to all things, Jesus or Mohammad?

Islam/Mohammad is the answer to all problems.
Yes, Islam/Mohammad even tells us how to make “pasta.” (Allāh reveals that He has left nothing out of His Qur’an–[Qur’an 6:38; 12:111; 16:89].
Thus, Islam is the answer to all that are needed for our moral, social, intellectual and spiritual upliftment. In fact, Islam is the answer to all problems. Allāh reveals in His Qur’an 16:43:“And We sent not before thee any but men to whom We sent revelation –so ask the followers of the Reminder if you know not–”While this verse is dealing with men/revelation, it can be applied to every aspect of life where a person does not know something; all he/she needs do is “ask” someone who knows; thus, if a person does not know how to make “pasta” then he/she should “ask” someone who knows how to make pasta. Allāh/Islam directs us how to know. Allāh also tells the Prophet [and us] to pray for knowledge [Qur’an 20:114]; and the Prophet instructed us to go even to China to seek knowledge and also to seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave).
As he did not give “all truth,” Jesus is not the answer to all needs. If Jesus was the answer to all needs, the way to salvation, the only way, the truth, and the life–(Acts 4:12; John 14:6)–and died for sins, and if his Gospel was for all time there would be no need for another Comforter to guide into “all truth”–(John 14:16; 16:13); or for “another angel” and “everlasting gospel” to come–(Rev. 14:6-7. As the everlasting Gospel was yet to come, THE BIBLE IS RENDERED OBSOLETE).
Nor would Jesus have prophesied that the kingdom of God would be taken from Jews and given to another people–(Matt. 21:43). This leader –who will be the last from God as he would bring “all truth”– to this new people and to the world is the last name through which man is saved; and this COMFORTERor “another angel” is the Prophet MOHAMMAD, and the “everlasting gospel” is the QUR'AN, known also as “good news”–(Qur’an 16:89, 102); and is the Book for all nations–(6:91; 12:104); and having “all truth”–(6:38; 16:89).
And the Prophet Mohammad is the only one to preach with a loud voice for man to “Fear God and give glory to Him”–(Rev. 14:6-7); Allāh, God, reveals to Him to:
“Say, O mankind,
surely I am the Messenger of Allah
to you all”
“So fear Allāh and obey me”
“And glorify Him morning and evening”
(Qur’an 7:158; 21:107; 34: 28; 3:50; 33:42).
(We often hear such musical Christian claims as “uni-versal” brotherhood,1 love, spirit, values, teachings, tole-rance, mercy, forgiveness and egalitarianism.
Belief is not to be confused with facts. The religion that stamps others as dogs and swine, enslaves heathen, views woman as transgressor and defiler of man, sub-jugates wife and sees her as an object of carnal release, relegate daughters into bondage, vilifies opposers as enemies, commands enemies be slain, and prevents others from knowing God “lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them” is on no moral or spiritual throne to make such lofty claims –Matt. 7:6; 15:26; Lev. 25:44; 1 Tim 2:11-14; Rev; 14:4; Gen. 3:16 and 1 Cor, 7:1-2; Ex. 21:7.; Luke 19:27; Matt. 12:30;Mark 4:9-12.
Whatever fruits of bliss the Christian woman is enjoy-ing did not come from any tree planted by Christ, but from the crops of modern culture).
Jesus had nothing to say on behalf of the Slave, the Woman and the Orphan. That, he left for the Comforter, Mohammad the magnanimous, to do. Mohammad extricated Woman from the bog of degradation and sat her aloft on the throne of honor and left her nothing for which to strive; Mohammad liberated the Slave from the shackles of servitude and placed in his grasp the scepter of regality; Mohammad raised the Orphan from the dust of despair and sat him on the cushion of hope. Mohammad is the only Benefactor Woman, Slave, and Orphan have known.
The “Christian” spirit, as its history shows, has been the opposite of meekness and mercy. It was a zealous, merciless rampage of the sword to force the body and mythical blood of Christ into the stomachs of the heathens; so much so that “From the dawn of Christianity until today (20th century) every country of the world has been soaked with blood in the name of Jesus Christ”–(M. H. Haykal, The Life of Muhammad, p. 213).
Even if Jesus was the answer to all problems yet this would not make him Divine or vicarious atoner.
1. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din in his Open Letters To The Bishops of Salisbury & London, commenting on Christian’s claim that Jesus “has given to the world the grand doctrine of universal brother-hood” remarked:
“The quotation reminds me of the oft-repeated phrases– “Christian spirit,” “Christian morals,” “Christian teachings,” etc.–which always come to the aid of the adherents of Christianity when they seek to claim such of these things for themselves as appeal to them for the time being, though they fail to find them in their Scriptures. Jesus was a Prophet, and can be believed to have possessed good and noble qualities and to have taught those things. But it is, after all, a belief, and should not be confused with facts. His teachings, as narrated in the Bible, cannot be taken as supplying a complete religion. Moreover, he himself admits that he did not give the whole truth–(St John xvi). On the other hand, if the Christian spirit is that which can be inferred from the spirit of Christ's Church, it is not such as to do credit to that Church’s founder. The beautiful of yesterday is the ugly of to-day; which things being so, it is hard to define the Christian spirit. The phrase, as used from time to time, seems to be sufficiently plastic to accord with any and every condition. Whatever appears to be desirable for the time being is at once claimed under one or other of these convenient phrases. The spirit of Christ may be taken to comprehend everything: but his own Church, though filled with the Holy Ghost, as they believe, has ever remained too dense to appreciate it. Her spirit has, throughout the ages, been anything but meekness, mercy and long-suffering. For about seventeen centuries the Creed of Saint Athanasius has been sung and said on the Holy Feasts, under the authority of the Church. Does that Creed reflect the spirit of Christ, when it evinces a universal, damnatory spirit at its very outset, where it says: “without doubt he shall perish everlastingly”? To-day the laity come forward to denounce it and demand its elimination from the Book of Common Prayer. The new house of laity of the Church of England met recently at Church House, Westminster, to conclude its deliberations on the proposed measure for the revision of the Prayer Book. Among other things–
“Mr. C. Marston moved an amendment to leave out the words ‘which faith, except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly,’ from the Athanasian Creed. He said he did not propose to eliminate the Creed altogether, but he wanted to take out of it the most terrible sentence which he believed had ever appeared in all history–and this in a book which pretended to supply the gospel of salvation of sinners. The Athanasian Creed was composed in an age that was comparatively reckless of human life; and it was put into our Prayer Book in its present form at a time when recklessness of human life was still very much to the front.
“Sir George King said he thought most of the members in charge considered that it was no business of the House to alter the creeds. There was a great deal to be said by way of explanation on matters which apparently were misunderstood by some people.
“Sir Edward Clarke said the Athanasian Creed. had spoiled the happiness of services for him on the great festivals of the Church for years and years. ‘I have never said it,’ he added, ‘and would never dream of saying it. It has been a distress to me to hear choirs singing at the top of their voices these awful words, which I do not believe, and which I am sure ought not to be in our service.'
“Sir Robert Williams said he thought it was quite time the laity made their protest against the use of these damnatory clauses.
“Mr. Marston’s amendment was carried. The question, however, remains open, and will come up before the House for final approval.”
The damnatory clause is doomed now, seeing that the protest against it comes from influential quarters among the laity. Similar protests got rid of a certain notorious psalm in the days of the war. But is it the spirit of Christ, or the spirit of modern civilization, that cries out against such cruel expressions? If it is the former, it has remained dormant for centuries, and its revival is simply to pamper the spirit of all-sufficiency. Candidly speaking, there is very little in the teachings of Jesus to meet the ups and downs of life. To make it elastic to suit everything and anything is simply to fish out authority for our deeds, no matter what their merits may be. But for such free interpretations the world would have been saved from the countless cruelties committed by the Church in the name of Jesus.
In fact, nothing could in decency be claimed as Christian verity if it be not laid down in clear terms in the sayings of Jesus. If the offending phrase in the Athanasian Creed has been allowed to remain for centuries in the Book of Common Prayer, is not a man of independent views justified in classing the spirit of Christ as identical with that of indifference to human life? (pp. 78-86).
