In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.
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?
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???
“I proceeded forth and came from God;
neither came I of myself, but He sent me”
(Jesus –John 8:42)
Christians are noted for taking statements out of context to support their false beliefs that Jesus is God; son of God; part of a trinity with God; and that he died for inherited sin.
Though Jesus clearly declared he was a Muslim and taught Islam; that God sent him only for Jews and he foretold the coming of another Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide for ever.”
Isaiah 7:14 and Matthew 1:23 state that Jesus’ NAME shall be “Immanuel”/”Emmanuel,” which is “interpreted” to mean “God with us” –whereas Christians interpret this “Immanuel” as referring to Jesus there is no place in the Gospels where Jesus is addressed as Immanuel.
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 that Jesus shall be “called” “SON” of God, Isaiah and Matthew state that Jesus is named “GOD” with us.” Clearly, if these names are taken literally, 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 noted above in the verse of John 8:42.
As only Jesus’ NAME means “God with us” Jesus is NOT God and he could NOT beGod!
Unlike Allāh, God, Who is All-knowing and wise–(Qur’an 4:92; 8:71; 35:2),the Christians’ God/son of God, Jesus, needed to eat butter and honey in order to differentiate between evil and good; speaking about Jesus/Immanuel the Bible says: “Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”– (Isaiah 7:14-15).
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. (Allāh God is All-knowing and Wise–Qur’an 4:92; 8:71; 35:2),
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. (Allāh God is the All-knowing and the Creator and Benefactor to all).
If Jesus is God God would be finding favour with himself. (Sheer inanity!).
Unlike Allāh God Who is All-powerful–(Qur’an 4:85; 12:21; 35:1),the Christians’ God/son of God, Jesus, needed to pray for power to be given to him: “But if I with the finger of God cast out devils;” “I can of mine own self do nothing;” “Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always” and with the power of God he resurrected Lazarus–(Luke 11:20; John 5:30; 11:41-43.
If Jesus was God and if he and the Father “are one” and if the Father, son, and Holy Ghost are one, to whom then was Jesus praying? Jesus was praying to Allāh!
Jesus said: “But from the beginning of the creation GOD made them males and females, for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and the twain shall be one flesh. So then they are no more twain, but one flesh”-(Mark 10:6-8; cf. Gen; 1:27; 2:24; 5:2; 1 Cor. 6:16; Eph; 5:31).
Jesus says “GOD” made them males and females; he did not say “I” made them males and females. How then it is claimed that Jesus is God?
“(But this spake he [Jesus] of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified” “And now O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before this world was”-(John 7:39; 17:5).
If Jesus is God and if Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one how could Jesus be not yet given the Holy Ghost and not yet glorified? And if Jesus is God to which God is he praying to give him glorification?
Christians say Jesus is God, but God says: “how can he be clean that is born of a woman?–(Job 25:4). If God came from a woman, He must be not “clean.” And as Adam, Eve, and Melchisedec –who had no parents, or beginning or end– were not born, then according to Christians Adam, Eve, and Melchisedec are cleaner than God.
That God incarnated Himself, Christians are saying that God, the Ultimate in Purity and Perfection, entered as a sperm (and how or whose?) into the womb of a woman He created, spent nine months inside the unclean abode (leaving the universe without a God) nourished on her liquid, passed through the various stages –from a sperm into a clot, a lump of flesh, taking on bones, and into a babe– emerged from her vagina, suckled her breast, was pinned in diaper, circumcised, ate, drank, slept, and answered the calls of nature, to be killed by the Jews (which is blasphemy of the highest order).
As noted, Jesus said “…I 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: “BEFORE I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…”–(Jer. 1:5).
That every person had a pre-existence. 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 destroy us for what liars did?”–(Qur’an 7:172-173).
Thus, not only Jesus, but all of us “proceedeth forth and come from God.” Everyone of us “proceeded forth and came from God.” Everything –past, present, and future– exists in the know-ledge of God: this is what makes Him Omniscient.
-If Jesus was God, he could not be “son” of God–one cannot be both God and “son of God”–(Luke 1:35). (Since God says that He will put His words into the mouth of this ‘prophet like Moses,’ and since Christians claim that Jesus is God and the ‘prophet like Moses,’ then God must have put His words in His own mouth–Deut. 18:18-19).
-If Jesus was God because he said “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (though he also said “I am the root and the offspring of David”–(Rev. 22:13, 16); then Melchisedec also must be God–and even greater then Jesus as Jesus had a mother at least–for Melchisedec was “Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither begin-ning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually”–(Hebrews 7:1, 3).
This would give Christians four Gods: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, and God the Melchisedec. Even Moses was a god: “And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh”–(Exodus 7:1).
-If Jesus was God because he says: “I and my Father are one” (and which statement when taken in its context 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); then the Jews that Jesus prayed for must also be Gods; as he said, “I pray for them (Jews)…That they may all be one; as Thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US”–(John 17:9-21); then the Jews he is praying for so that they also could be “one” “in us” are also Gods.
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 punish-ment 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 God 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 Gos-pels 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 “ac-cording 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 above Jesus says he prays for the Jews NOT for the world. This is because God sent Jesus only to JEWS; NOT to the White and Black and Brown and Red and Yellow –these are the metaphorical “dogs” and “swine” against whom he preached in para-bles to keep out of heaven (Matthew 7:6; 15:24-26; Mark 4:9-120)– the real “dogs” and “swine” are the ones with four legs running around going arf, arf! and oink, oink!.(See Jesus-only for Jews).
-If Jesus was God, then, as noted, God would need to eat “Butter and honey” in order to know to choose in order to “know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”–(Isaiah 7:14-15)
-If the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one, Elisabeth could not be filled with the Holy Ghost as the Holy Ghost was in Mary’s womb, and was also with Zaccharias–(Luke 1:41-43, 67).
-If Jesus was God “All power” could not be “given” to him–(Matt. 28:18. God gave Himself “all power”?). As “all power” was “given” to him, “all power” can be taken from him. And no one can “give” or “take” power from God; be it some or “all.”
-If Jesus is God, man would do greater works than God–(John 14:12).
-If Jesus was God, God would have ascended to himself: “I ascend to…my God, and your God”–(John 20:17).
-If Jesus was God, God would have led himself into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil–(Matt. 4:1).
-If Jesus was God, God would have sent himself to the Jews–(John 6:38; 17:3).
-If Jesus was God, God would have prayed to himself; “forsaken” himself on the cross; thanked himself; heard himself; and worshipped himself–(Matt; 26:39; 27:46; Luke 10:21; John 11: 41; 4:22).
-If Jesus was God he could NOT have heard the truth from God: “But now you seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, WHICH I HAVE HEARD OF GOD”–(John 8:40).
-If Jesus was God, God would have known that fig was not in season–(Mark 11:12-13).
-If Jesus was God, God would have known the day and hour of future events–(Mark 13:32).
-If Jesus was God, God would have known the identity of the woman “having an issue of blood” who touched his garment–(Luke 8:43-46).
-If Jesus was God, God would have known that Elijah and Enoch ascended to heaven–(John 3:13; 2 Kings 2:1, 11; Hebrews 11:5).
-If Jesus was God, God would have been able to do things of himself–(John 5:30).
-If Jesus was God, the pure (and impure) have already seen God–(Matt. 5:8).
-If Jesus was God, God was made into a “curse”–(Gal. 3:13; Deut. 21:23).
-If Jesus was God he would have the attributes of God, such as “Omniscience” and “Omnipotence” and Omnipresence which he clearly had not.
-If Jesus was God he would not have said it was GOD who made male and female; he would have said “I” made them: “But from the beginning of the creation GOD made them male and female”–(Mark 10:6).
-God said that Jesus is His son–(Matt. 3:17; Heb. 5:5), Jesus could not be God; a person cannot be both himself and his son.
-If the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one person, then Jesus cannot give the Holy Ghost to his disciples–(John 20:22).
-Father, Son, and Holy Ghost could not be one when the son, Jesus, did only what God instructed him to do–(John 5:30-31; 6:38; 17:4; Matt. 15:24). (The instructed is not synonymous with the instructor).
-Jesus could not be God when he was subjected to God–(1 Cor. 15: 27-28).
-Jesus was NOT Emmanuel, he was only NAMED Emmanuel–(Matt. 1:23).
-Jesus cannot be God, for Jesus was on LAND, and the Spirit DESCENDEDon him, and (God’s) voice came from HEAVEN–(Matt. 3:16-17).
-John 1:1 says “the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” But the “Word” could not be WITH God and still be God.
-If the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one, when the Son was killed all three of them died; and as all three died, Jesus could not have been resurrected because the dead cannot resurrect itself. Since all three died the universe is without a God (?).
-Jesus made it clear that he is not God when he says (Matt. 19:17; Mark 10:18): “Why callest thou me good? there is NONEgood but one, that is GOD.” Jesus not only denies that he is God, he also denies that he is good.
-If Jesus was God because “All power” is given to him and he was “worshipped” by the two Mary’s and by his eleven disciples though “some doubted” him–(Matt.28:18, 9, 17), then Pharaoh and the idols and items of nature worshipped in olden times by the tens of thousands of pagans –if not millions through the ages, as compared to the few who worshipped Jesus– Pharaoh and these idols and items, according to Christian logic, must also be “Gods.” And these idols and items were not given any “power” yet they drew such lofty honor as to be worshipped.
This Christian’s “God” must have fickle-minded worshippers that “some doubted” him and “all forsook him and fled”–(Mark 14:50). ButJesus told the devil only God is to be worshipped and served: he did not say “I” am to be worshipped and served–(Matt. 4:10). Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din exposes in his The Sources of Christianity:
“The idea of the man-God was not strange to the Gentiles. Their mythologies were teeming with God Incarnate, His sufferings for human salvation, his resurrection, human sin and its expiation through God’s sacrifice, were things rampant in Greek and Roman literature. The Gentiles of the days of St. Paul could easily see in Jesus, as portrayed by the Apostle, a reflection of their own God, and accept him as a representative of the class that were that were believed to have visited the earth in the olden days (as is for example, the opinion of Gibbon), and participated with them in human affairs. The vigilant eye of St. Paul and of the monks who were really builders of the Church, could easily see that side of human psychology. They, therefore, clothed Jesus with Divinity, and saturated their writings with the phraseology current in Pagan and other philosophic literature of the days.” (p. 17).
“At the appearance of Jesus there were temples without end dedicated to gods like Apollo or Dionysius among the Greek, Hercules among the Romans, Mithra among the Persians, Adonis and Attis in Syria and Phrygia; Osiris, Isis and Horus in Egypt; Baal and Astarte among the Babylonians and Carthaginians, and so forth.
All these Deities were sun-gods, and of all or nearly all of them, as Edward Carpenter says, it was believed that:–
(1) They were born on or very near Christmas Day.
(2) They were born of a Virgin Mother.
(3) And in a cave or underground chamber.
(4) They led a life of toil for mankind.
(5) They were called by the names of Light-Bringer, Healer, Mediator, Saviour and Deliverer.
(6) They were, however, vanquished by the Powers of Darkness.
(7) They descended into Hell or the Underground.
(8) They rose again from the dead, and became the pioneers of mankind to the Heavenly World.
(9) They founded Communions of Saints and Churches, to which disciples were received by baptism.
(10) They were commemorated by Eucharistic meals.”
“Mithraism came from Persia, where it seems to have been flourishing for about six hundred years, the cult reaching Rome about 70 B.C. It spread through the Empire, and extended to Great Britain. Remains of Mithraic monuments have been discovered at York, Chester and other places. Mithra was believed to be a great Mediator between God and man. His birth took place in a cave on December 25th. He was born of a virgin. He traveled far and wide; he had twelve disciples; he died in the service of humanity. He was buried, but rose again from the tomb. His resurrection was celebrated with great rejoicing.a His great festivals were the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox–Christmas and Easter. He was called Saviour, and sometimes figured as a Lamb. People were initiated into his cult through baptism.Sacramental feasts were held in his remembrance. These statements may excite surprise in the mind of the reader of to-day; he may be disposed to doubt their genuineness, as while on one side he reads the story of the Jesus of the Church, in the legend of Mithra on the other Mithraism has left no traces in the world, although it was so powerful in the third century A.D. that, had it not been suppressed in Rome and Alexandria by the Christians with physical force, as has been admitted by St. Jerome, it would have left no chance for the flourishing of Christianity; and that it died only when most of its legends became incorporated in the simple faith of Jesus,b and the Church lore fully saturated with Mithraic colours, so much so that Tertullian had to admit the fact, though in a way befitting his position. He says that the learned in his days considered Mithraism and Christianity identical in all but name. St. Jerome and other Early Fathers became puzzled at the similarity existing between the two faiths, but their ingenuity ascribed it to the machinations of the Devil to mock their faith.” 1 (a-b)
K.K notes, Justin Martyr, writing to the Emperor Adrian,(Hadrian?), to strengthen his beliefs that Jesus is Son of God, blames the Devil for the Pagan Sons of Jove; he says:
“It having reached the Devil’s ears that the prophets had foretold the coming of Christ (the Son of God) he set the heathen poets to bring forward a great many who should be called the sons of Jove. The Devil laying his scheme in this, to get man to imagine hat the true history of Christ was of the same character as the prodigious fables related of the sons of Jove….By declaring the Logos, the first begotten of God, Our Master Jesus, to be born of a virgin, without any human mixture, we (Christians) say no more in this than what you (Pagans) say of those whom you style the sons of Jove. For you need not be told what a parcel of sons the writers most in vogue among you assign to Jove. (Just as the Bible assigns a legion of sons to God)….As to the Son of God, called Jesus, should we allow him to be no more than man (note well, it is Christians who “allow” Jesus to be “more than man”), yet the title of the son of God is very justifiable upon account of his wisdom (then this “wisdom“ should make Einstein at least super son of God), considering that you (Pagans) have your Mercury in worship under the title of the Word, a messenger of God….As to his (Jesus) being born of a virgin, you have your Perseus to balance that….if Jupiter could send a parcel of sons out of virgin mothers; the Father in heaven assuredly could do the same at least in our case.”” 2
If this is how easy it is for the Devil to “shanghai” the Christian’s God’s purpose, the Devil must be doing the “tango,” throwing “a” voice around, giving visions of the non-existent “Virgin,” and having Christians speak in yet to be identified “tongues.”
If the Devil “set the heathen poets to bring forward a great many who should be called the sons of Jove” to pre-empt the birth of Jesus, the Devil must have also “set the heathen poets” to copy the Passion Play of Jesus so that the Passion Play of Baal would be exactly as Jesus’ centuries before Jesus. (See Jesus-pagan passion play. For Christians’ pagan heritage see The Sources of Christianity, obtainable from www.muslim.org).
Jesus, as all other prophets, is one with God in purpose. Jesus is not one with God in substance.
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 follow-ing 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 VOICEcame 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 mathematicide).
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!”
