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.
A dazzling halo is hung over Jesus’ sermon on the Mount. Jesus was no pacifist. There is nothing docile or pacifistic about the leader who tells his followers to sell their coats and buy swords and to slay his enemies.
While Jesus as prophet is expected to give moral teachings many lose their lustre when viewed through the luminous lens of logic:
-Jesus says “resist not evil;” give the other cheek; give the plaintiff our cloak along with our coat in settlement, go an extra mile with the compeller (though he booted his compellers out the Temple–Matt. 5:39-41).
So if John compels you to steal Mark’s chickens you are to voluntarily steal Luke’s chickens as well for him. It is doubtful an intelligent woman (and man) would give her daughter to be violated after she was; or would also give secret treasure to the robber, and give more to the plaintiff than his dues; or allow themselves to be pummeled if they have a measure of defense against the assailant. If one is to give the other cheek in all situations the Allies of WW II should have let Hitler become Emperor of Europe, Britain should have thrown in England or Scotland along with the Falklands to the Argentines, and America should have let the 9/11 attackers have a blast all over the U.S.
Contrast this to Mohammad who taught through the Qur’an that there are times to give the other cheek and times to take an eye in return.
–Using as examples that the birds and the lilies and grass do not toil yet they survive as God takes care of them, Jesus says: “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.….for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”–(Matt. 6:25-34).
There is no question the higher purpose of life is the Hereafter, and whereas God does provide for the birds and the lilies and the grass (and whereas the lilies and grass have no mobility and if water is not given to them they will wilt and die) the worm and berries do not go to the bird: the bird has to take flight and even battle other birds for the worm and berries. By telling man to pray only and leaving it all to God to send him groceries through handouts, the Christian’s God and son of God is teaching man to be loafers and mendicants.
If America was to follow such a doctrine, instead of her being on the pinnacle of progress she would regress into the black-hole of backwardness.
Contrast the Christians’ “God” and son of God, Jesus, with the injunctions of Allāh and His noble Messenger, Mohammad. While Islam does not allow pursuit of the material to the detriment of the spiritual; Allāh tells us that everything in the heavens and earth were created for our benefit and urges us to seek knowledge to put them to our service; and that after we finish offering our prayers to go into the land and seek of His bounties. And His magnanimous Messenger informs us we have a duty to Allāh, to ourselves, families, and the community.
Earning bread honestly is a part of righteousness and an act of worship.
-Jesus says the “meek” –those who bear suffering with pati-ence– (who may also be atheists) “shall inherit the earth” (though it seems odd that atheists should inherit the earth); and “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”–(Matt. 5:5, 10).
Thus, if you are Godly but not “meek,” and if you are righteous but not “persecuted” you get nothing.
Contrastingly, Mohammad taught us that the “meek” as well as the rich and poor who believe in Allāh and do good works shall inherit the “kingdom of heaven.”
(Considering that there is no Gospel “according to” God or “according” to Jesus; or a “God’s Version” or a “Jesus’ Version”. One is hard pressed to not wonder if such Biblical delicacies were not baked in the human oven and fed into the mouth of Jesus in order to subdue, subjugate, and sack. Memory seems to recall the words of a negro lecturer in college who [regarding European presence in Africa] remarked in dark humor that the White man gave the African the Bible and took his gold).
-Jesus empowered his followers: “whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained”–(John 20:23. Man can forgive man his sins but God cannot forgive man Adam’s sin, but puts Adam’s sin onto babies? What manner of God is this?)
If a Protestant priest does not forgive a person his sin, and the person converts to Catholicism and this priest forgives him, whose “office” will be honored –Protestant or Catholic?
Perhaps Hitler’s priest forgave him for the “Holocaust” and Hitler is now sitting with Jesus “at the right hand of God.” And maybe even laughing at Jews (no ridicule to Jews, just an observation) -(“…” Mark 16:19). (God & Jesus versus Christians).
-Jesus advises:“Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison”–(Matt. 5:25.
Wonder what Nelson Mandela, modern-day anti-Apartheid icon, would say about this dictum: he may have saved himself thirty years jail; and his brother-in-cause, Steve Biko, may be alive; and South Africa may still be in “prison”–Apartheid).
So for fear of imprisonment, a Christian must agree to frame an innocent man for murder and send him to the gallows. The Christian nations that acquiesced to or supported German invasion were only following Jesus’ precept to “agree” with their “adversary.” And Christian individuals who handed Jews over to the Germans should be honored for obeying Jesus to “agree” with their adversary.
(Perhaps this is why the Vatican was silent during Hitler’s reign, for fear of violating Jesus’ decree to agree with the adversary. As noted elsewhere, Jesus taught to bring his enemies who did not want him to rule and slay them, and that he who is not with him is against him; perhaps these also are reasons why the Vatican was silent when “Christian” Europe was being purged of Jewish presence).
In contrast, Mohammad/Allāh requires us to give justice even it be against one-self or parents, to aid not in sin and aggression, nor let hatred incite us to transgress–(Qur’an 4:135; 5:3).
This injunction of Jesus for his followers to agree with their adversary, gives Christians a hole so big to accommodateevery conceivable lie and deception and for any situation that the battleships Iowa Jima and Lincoln can sail side by side through it. And with mega space to spare. With this permission Christians can even frame an innocent person all the way to the executioner’s needle just so they would not be thrown in jail.
Sure the Bible says not to bear false witness, but clearly this is superseded by Jesus (who is said to be son of God and even “God”) for “Christians” to have no borders when it comes to saving their hide. In fact, when it comes to saving the Christian’s hide from being tossed into jail the Christian’s son of God (and God) gives him and her full license to lie through his gums to even send his/her mother down the creek, and without any paddle. And Jesus came some five hundred years AFTER Moses.
(Jesus saying to agree with the “adversary” could not be about, or restricted to, a law-suit (Jesus clearly says to give the suer your cloak as well as coat–Matt. 5:40). A suer would not necessarily receive judgment in his favor so that one would have to agree with him. Unless he likes jail, .seems only a crook would wait till he is jailed before paying every “farthing” to be freed).
– Jesus says: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God”–(Matthew 19:24).
Is there anything more ridiculous than this? Surely a rich man/woman can also be devout, honest and charitable. And no amount of “trickery” (as Christian try to fan-angle people with their explanation) can push this camel through the eye of a needle.
– “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me”–(Matthew 19:21).
Another ridiculous saying. Why does one have to give away his riches in order to be perfect and have a mansion in heaven? Perhaps there are wealthy people who are more devout followers of God than poor followers.
How many rich Christians follow this? Even the Vatican, as we read, have billions in assets.
In addition to teaching absurd doctrines Jesus also bequeathed to his people and the world a legacy of strife, division, hate, and violence. He declared:
-“I am come to send FIRE on the earth”–(Luke 12:49).
-Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth, Nay; but rather DIVISION: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; and the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law”–(Luke 12:51-53).
-“Think NOT that I am come to send peace on earth: I came NOT to send peace, but a SWORD”–(Matt. 10:34).
-“If any man come to me, and HATE NOT his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple”–(Luke 14:26).
What kind of a God and son of God is this? And what manner of “love” is this? (Mohammad forbids us from disobeying parents and exhorts us to have good relations even with our pagan parents– Muslim Vol. 3, #’s 4257, 4260; Bokhari Vol. 3, #789).
-“He that is not with me is against me”–(Matt. 12:30. (And a person can be neutral. Again, these people was/is not “ruthless” on Jesus; they only did/do not believe in him).
-“But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me”–(Luke 19:27). (and a person can be against Jesus’ rule and yet not militate against him; and thus they would not be against him).
(Perhaps these are the two verses from which the Popes took their inspiration for their murderous crusades. If these two last declarations of Jesus were to be enforced some six billion people of the world who does not accept Jesus as Divine or as vicarious atoner would have to be slaughtered. Non-Christians, and even some Christians, need to go down on their hands and knees and foreheads and thank Allāh, God, that Jesus/Christianity is not lording over them or lording any place.For a comparison between Jesus/Christian rule and Islamic rule see Jesus or Mohammad-best system).
That Jesus sent fire and sword and division on earth is not surprising; considering that the Biblical God (and as Christians say that Jesus is God, then Jesus) is a man of war: “The Lord is a MAN OF WAR: the Lord is his name”–(Exodus 15:3). (See also God & Jesus versus Christians).
