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.
In contrast to Jesus’ teaching that he was only a prophet sent to the Jews and that paradise lies in following the Mosaic Law (till the Comforter comes), Christians made Jesus Divine, vicarious atoner for non-existent inherited sin; as judge, redeemer, and renewer of the world; and as “mediator between God and man.” Britannica notes:
“David was Israel’s first successful king….
David became the prototype of an awaited Messiah. As symbol of the Messiah, the return of David, or the com-ing of David’s “son” stood for the reassertion of the divine rule and presence in history: to judge it, to redeem it, to renew it. David thus became the symbol of a fulfilment in the future, final peace.
In the apocalyptic developments in Judaism that mark the last two pre-Christian centuries, the symbolic rule of David stressed his status as divine mediator. The son of David became more emphatically a heavenly figure, the son of God enthroned to rule over the nations of the world. This was the matrix for the rise of Christianity. The new faith interpreted the career of Jesus by means of the titles and functions assigned to David in the mysticism of the Zion cult, in which he served as priest-king and in which he was the mediator between God and man.”1
Clearly, Christians tailored Jesus to suit David according to their imaginations. Whereas God made David a material king, Christians try to make Jesus a spiritual king. And to effect this, Christians consigned Jesus to the bed of celibacy,2 crowned him with Divinity, made him scapegoat for non-existent inherited sin, and consecrated him ruler of the future-world.
Jesus said: “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself”–(John 14:2-3).
Jesus had no knowledge “IF” he was going to heaven and coming back. And whereas some Christians are waiting for Jesus to return, Jehovah’s Witnesses inferred that Jesus already returned around 1914, though he was “invisible.”3
In contrast, whereas Jesus did not know “IF” he is going to heaven to prepare a place, the Prophet Mohammad tells us clearly that Allāh has already prepared Gardens and mansions for us. All we need do is believe in Allāh and do good deeds and Paradise is ours –as easy and simple as that; no uncertain trip to heaven and back and no vague promises. And the promise of Allāh is ever true–(Qur’an 19:60-61; 31:8-9; 39:20; 61:12). Muslims have assurance of heaven–(Qur’an 4:124; 33:35; 36:56; 41:8; 43:70; 46:15-16; 52:17; 64:9).
Jesus also said “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom’–(Matthew 16:28. Jesus here contradicts himself when he said, “I go to my Father, and ye see me no more”–John 16:10. Why then are Christians scanning the Jerusalem sky for Jesus?)
Unless “Son of man” in the above verse is some other than Jesus, these people would not be able to “see” Jesus if his “coming” would be “invisible.” Also, Jesus is here speaking to people in his own lifetime –standing “here.” It must be the “miracle of the ages” that for two thousand years since Jesus’ departure these “some standing” people are yet living, waiting for Jesus; and would “see” him though he would be “invisible.”
Regarding Jesus’ alleged 1000-year reign some time in the future on which Christians “pin their hope” to sit with Jesus. The Book of Revelation, is said to be a vision given to John by Jesus through an angel with the permission of God–(Revelation 1:1). But the Book of revelation is not prophecies about a future coming and rule of Jesus. Encyclopaedia Britannica notes:
“Revelation to John appears to be a collection of separate units composed by unknown authors who lived during the last quarter of the first century, though it purports to have been written by John…
Although Christ is clearly the central figure of Revelation, an understanding of the text presupposes familiarity with the Old Testament language and concepts, especially those taken from the books of Daniel and Ezekiel …References to a “thousand years” (ch. 20) have led some to expect that the final victory over evil will come after the completion of some millennium.”4
“One of the most pervading and dominant mythological themes to be noted in the New Testament and the writings of the subapostolic church (late 1st–early 2nd centuries) was that of the ages of the world. Derived from Indo-Iranian (or Indo-European) sources and transformed through Jewish concepts of history, the theme of the ages of the world that most influenced Christianity came from the apocalyptic speculation that flourished during the period of the rise of Christianity.
…It was Iranian mythological concepts of the ages of the world, translated through Jewish apocalyptic views, that most influenced Christian views of time, history, and man’s ultimate destiny.
…The theme of the ages of the world and its attendant subthemes that came primarily from Iranian mythology were transformed by apocalyptic literature––which flourished in Judaism and then Christianity from about the 2nd century BC to about 2nd century AD––into a historical context, though Zoroastrian had done this in reference to the last age. Indo-Iranian myth was thus historicized through the Judeo-Christian view of historical time as the arena of struggle between good and evil. The four ages of the world in Christianity are: (1) from creation of the world and man to the Fall of man; (2) from the Fall of man to the first advent of Christ; (3) from the first to the second advent of Christ, which includes the 1,000-year reign of Christ and his saints and the Last Judgment; and (4) the creation of a new heaven and a new earth in which those who have chosen the good (i.e., Christ) will live in eternity.”5
Note well these Christian apocalyptic writings are not Divine revelations. They are Christian inventions that are based on the “mythology” of other people(s). The imageries in the Book of Revelation are either echoes from Old Testament writings or Christian imaginations.
Even if Jesus was to return a million times yet this would not make Jesus God or son of God or one in a Trinity with God or vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin from Adam. These doctrines of Christianity are lies, falsehood, and blasphemy.6
As Jesus completed his mission there is no return. It is the Comforter who guides into “all truth” as Jesus says that will abide “forever.’ And as already shown, whereas David was a material king, Christians try to make Jesus into a spiritual king.
While mythology may have its purpose in certain areas of life, the road to God needs no human embellishments or inventions. In His Qur’an Allāh has given us guidance. Allāh created us to live a term on earth and He furnished us with clear instructions on what is good and what is evil; then we die and are returned to him; followed by the Resurrection and Judgment and our destination to Paradise or Hell according to our belief and deeds.
Here are a few observations from the Book of revelation:
(1) In Revelation chapters 1 to 3 John is instructed to convey messages to “seven churches which are in Asia.”
It is doubtful that after TWO THOUSAND YEARS John has not given these churches their respective messages about things “which must SHORTLY come to pass.” (One or more of these churches may no longer even be in existence). How much more “SHORTLY” do they have to wait?
(2) In Revelation chapter 5 John spoke of seeing a book “seal-ed with seven seals.”
This is an echo from the Old Testament (Ezekiel 2:9). And from Isaiah 29:12 which states: “And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”
The book with “seven seals” is the Qur’an, the “seven” verses of the first chapter –the Fatihah– being the “seven seals;” and the one not “learned” to whom the book is delivered is the Pro-phet Mohammad; when the Prophet received the first Qur’anic revelation from Angel Gabriel instructing him to read he said, “I do not know how to read”–(Qur’an 96:1-5, Bokhari Vol.1, # 3).
Interestingly, Revelation says that Jesus is the only one able to “open the book, and to loose the seven seals” because “thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”
This is sheer crockery! As shown in JESUS-INHERITED SIN, not only was Jesus not killed as he himself also proved, Jesus’ mission as he declared and demonstrated was wholly and solely to the Jews; he considered non-Jews “dogs” and “swine” and preached in parables so the “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved. And he admonished his people that eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law until the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and abide “for ever.”
This piece, whoever wrote it, is another bit of Christian invention like the inventions of inherited sin and vicarious atonement three hundred years after Christ.
Even if Jesus’ “blood” was shed it could hardly have been for “every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation” considering that Jesus was patently a Jewish tribal prophet.
(3) Revelation chapter 6 speaks of a rider on a “white” horse, one on a “red” horse, one on a “black” horse, and “Death” on a “pale” horse with “Hell” following him; “power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth (wherever this fourth part is), to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Followed by the destruction of heaven and catastrophe on earth.
These so-called prophecies given to John (or whoever) are, as Bible cross-references show, echoes from the Old Testament –Zecheriah, Ezekiel. They were just recopied and embellished.
(Arguably, this prophecy was fulfilled in the World Wars and plagues that ravaged Europe –are the tens of millions that died in these wars and plagues not a “catastrophe?” Though heaven has not been destroyed; unless you count acid rain and hole in the ozone).
(4) In Revelation chapter 7 John spoke about 144,000 made up of 12,000 from each of the Twelve tribes of Israel. (These 144,000 would be male “virgins” who followed Christ–Rev. 7:4-8; 14:1-4; Matt. 19:28. Female “virgins” get no place at Jesus’ throne. Notably, these 144,000 will be JEWS. Non-Jews, whether male or female, virgin or virgin-less, get nothing from Jesus; be-cause Jesus was only for JEWS!
That these 144,000 male “virgins” have already been selected is evidenced from the fact that there are no Twelve Tribes of Israel in existence today from which to select them. In fact, it is doubtful that a Jew can identify himself and herself with any of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Modern Jewry may be descendants of the Khazar –a Turkish tribe– that converted to Judaism in the eighth century; the large majority of existing Jews is of “Eastern European” ancestry. (See Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe).
(5) Revelation chapter 9. Locusts are sent upon the earth: “And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth as it were the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron…And they tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months…And they had a king over them…whose name in the Hebrew tongue s Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”(vvs. 7-11).
Some locusts! With all the chemical weapons and laser guided missiles that man possesses you would think that Jesus would have outfitted his “locust” army with gas masks and missile shields. The writer who painted his imagery from the Old Testament clearly had no “vision” of the future. These “locusts” will become charcoal before they are able to unsheathe their “stings.”
These “locusts” cannot be interpreted as “missiles.” Missiles do not “hurt men five months” they obliterate to the Resurrection.
Strange that Jesus should give the name of this “locust” king in Greek considering that Jesus, as far as is known, was not Greek neither spoke Greek; and he must have given this “vision” to “John” in Hebrew or Aramaic.
Revelation 9:14-19 speaks about “four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates (Wonder how long these angels are bound up till they are loosed and unless angels do not breathe or they had scuba equipment how are they breathing?).And the four angles were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand (two hundred million)…having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brim-stone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone (sounds like crazy horses) …For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.”
Perhaps wicked nations can pre-empt this fire-breathing army by tossing some bunker-busting bombs into the Euphrates; or have their cluster bombs ready to launch. Watch those tail-heads roll like bowling balls.
Armies that “hurt” against armies that kill?
(6) Revelation chapter 14 speaks about the 144,000 male “virgins” who will be with Christ, and which 144,000 are Jews, 12,000 from each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel (see item #4).
Revelation 14:6-7 speaks of “another angel…having the ever-lasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him.”
This saying is the echo from Jesus about the coming of another Comforter who will guide in-to “all truth” and will abide “for ever”–(John 14:16; 16:13). This Comforter is the Prophet Mohammad and the Qur’an is the “everlasting gospel.” Mohammad is the only world Prophet; he spoke with a “loud voice” saying “Fear God, and give glory to him.”
The Holy Ghost is not the Comforter. Christians do not know what or who the Holy Ghost is. 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 Holy Spirit, in all the Christian literature of diverse languages, has not a fixed gender. He, she, it, are all commonly used as the personal pronouns for the Holy Ghost;” And
“The Comforter –the Spirit of Truth– spoken of by Jesus was no other than Muhammad himself. It cannot be taken as the Holy Ghost, as the Church theology says. “It is expedient for you that I go away,” says Jesus, “for if I go not away the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart I will send him unto you”(John 16:7). The words clearly show that the Comforter had to come after the departure of Jesus, and was not with him when he uttered these words. Are we to presume that Jesus was devoid of the Holy Ghost if his coming was conditional on the going of Jesus: besides, the way in which Jesus describes him makes him a human being, not a ghost. “He shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear that he shall speak” (John 16:13). Should we presume that the Holy Ghost and God are two distinct entities and that the Holy Ghost speaks of himself and also what he hears from God? The words of Jesus clearly refer to some messenger from God. He calls him the Spirit of Truth, and so the Qur‘an speaks of Muhammad, “Nay, he has come with the Truth and verified the apos-tles” (Qur’an 37:37).” (p. 190 f/n; p. 6, respectively).
Moreover the Holy Ghost/Spirit was already here, before, during, and after Jesus–(Luke 1:41, 67; 2:25; 3:22; John 20:22; Acts 2:4; 8:17; 11:15; 19:6); but he, she, or it did not bring any gospel or speak with a loud voice or give “all truth.”
(7). Revelation chapter 20 speaks about Satan being bound up for a thousand years during which time Christ and his martyred followers will reign. And after the thousand years is over Satan will be let loose again “to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them toget-her to battle.”
Jesus and his thousand-year reign and his eventual reign for-ever have already been shown to be figments of Christian invent-ions based on the “mythology” of past people(s). As David was material king Christians try to make Jesus into a spiritual king (see JESUS TAILORED TO SUIT DAVID or Jesus-like David).
That Satan will be bound up is puerile. Who is Satan? Satan is that which incites unGodliness. Satan can be in the physical, the unseen, or in ourselves:
(i) physical –those who lead others astray: “Woe to those who write the Book with their hands then say, This is from Allah; so that they may take for it a small price”–(Qur’an 2:79)
(ii) unseen –evil suggestions from unseen beings: “Say I seek refuge in the Lord of men…from the evil of the whisperings of the slinking (devil), who whispers into the hearts of men, from among the jinn and the men”–(Qur’an 114: 1, 4-6. It is not un-common to sometimes hear or feel evil promptings).
(iii) ourselves/minds–evil suggestions from our soul: “And certainly We created man, and We know what his mind suggests to him”–(Qur’an 50:16).
Thus Satan is more than a physical entity that can be “bound” up by another. Even if the physical head-Satan is bound up there would yet be his votaries to incite unGodliness.
Revelation 20:10-14 say that “the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the BEAST and the false prophets are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever…(and on the day of Judgment) death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their WORKS (NOT faith; note well, Christians) And death and hell were CAST into the lake of fire. This is the SECOND death”
“Death” is not a physical item that can be “cast” into a thing (a “lake of fire”).
“Second death.” The Oxford Paperback Thesaurus explains “Damnation” as “sending to hell, eternal punishment.”
And Jesus, who is regarded as son of God and even as God says “and they that have done EVIL, (shall go) unto the resur-rection of DAMNATION;” “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVER FORGIVENESS, but is in danger of ETERNAL DAMNATION”–(John 5:29; Mark 3:29). Which sayings of Jesus contradict this “second death,” for death is a state of non-feelingness; and “eternal damnation” and non-feelingness are contradictions.
Eternal punishment is not “death.” Eternal punishment in Hell which is an “everlasting fire,” a “furnace of fire” that “never shall be quenched” and in which there is “wailing and gnashing of teeth” and “death”are contradictions–(Matthew 13:41-42; 18:8-9; Mark 9:43).
One cannot suffer “wailing and gnashing of teeth” in “everlasting fire” if he is “dead” because “the dead know not anything”–(Eccl. 9:5. And Lazarus said nothing about the Hereafter after Jesus resurrected him because the dead “know not anything” –the dead will be judged and assigned his heaven/hell AFTER the Resurrection–John 11:43-44; Revelation 20:12-13).
And what is hell that it can be cast into the “lake of fire”? And if there is a hell what need is there for a “lake of fire?”
Any wonder then that only “some” “expect that the final victory over evil will come after the completion of some millennium”?
Clearly, Revelation is not about a return and thousand-year reign of Jesus. Even if it was, Jesus would have nothing to do with “Christianity” for “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL” “I pray for THEM: I pray NOT for the world”–(Matt. 15:24; John 17:9).
Even if Revelation was about a return of Jesus, then after his 1000-year reign is over the Comforter (Mohammad) who brought “all truth” will rule “forever”–(John 16:13; 14:15-16; 15:26).
(Muslims practice of Islam is not dependent on whether Jesus had a father or not, is dead or not, will return or not; these are not cardinal doctrines of Islam. Allāh will show us the truth in which we differ. See ISLAM-MUSLIM DESTINY).
As to Gog and Magog. This writing of Revelation is an echo from Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39, in which God says He will crush “Gog, the land of Magog” in preservation of the “house of Israel.” Clearly this prophecy has already been fulfilled. There is no longer a “house of Israel” in existence to preserve. Those who call themselves Jews or are adherents of Judaism are not “Israelites.” They are not of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. It is doubtful that a “Jew” can identify himself/herself with any of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. (See Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe).
Muhammad Ali has shown in detail that this prophecy has been fulfilled. It is an extensive composition that needs to be read in its entirety rather than in excerpts; please see his comm. to Qur’an 18:94. His translation of the Qur’an can be viewed online: www.muslim.org).
(See ARMAGEDDON-GOG & MAGOG).
JESUS’ MISSION & STATUS
The Christian’s God and son of God, Jesus, says: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved …and IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING, IT SHALL NOT HURT THEM…”–(Mark 16:16-18). Would Christians like to drink some “deadly thing”?
Christians claim that the Bible is “all” “Word of God” and that Jesus is the Son of God. If Christians believe in their “Word of God” and Son of God they will have no reluctance or hesitancy to drink this “deadly thing.” Surely to demonstrate their “Word of God” and trust in their “Son of God” is the highest of “moral standards.” Don’t Christians trust their God and son of God?
It is scandalous that Christians are not clamoring to honor this “truth” of Jesus. After all, if this “deadly thing” does not hurt them they can boast that Jesus spoke the truth. And if they die, well, they will get to sit with Jesus sooner “on the right hand of God”–(Mark 16:19).
Jesus’ mission, as he clearly expressed, was wholly and solely only to the Jews. He preached “repentance;” “forgiveness;” obedience to the scribes and Pharisees; and that eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law until the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide forever.”
Thus, Jesus became REDUNDANT the moment he preached sal-vation through the Mosaic Law; and the Bible became OBSOLETE six hundred years after Jesus with the advent of the Comforter who, as Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani– has shown in his revealing book Muhammad in the Bible, is the Prophet Mohammad who brought “all truth” (that are needed for our moral, social, intellectual, and spiritual upliftment) and who will “abide forever” through the Qur’an.
The cardinal or main doctrines of Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– are not clearly stated in the Bible. These doctrines are assumed and propagated as Divine truths. As shown:
-Jesus is not one in a Trinity with God. Trinity was formulated by Christians three hundred years after Jesus.
-Jesus is not God. Only the name Immanuel is “interpreted” to mean “God with us.” Whereas Christians interpret this “Imman-uel” as referring to Jesus there is no place in the Gospels where Jesus is addressed as Immanuel. Moreover, this “Immanuel”/ Jesus would need to eat butter and honey in order to differentiate between evil and good: “Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”–(Isaiah 7:14-15). It would be ludicrous to the extreme to cerebrate that God or Son of God would need to eat “Butter and honey” so that he may be able to differentiate between evil and good.
-Jesus is not Son of God. Jesus is only “called” Son of God. And God has a legion of sons and daughters. Even peacemakers, which would include atheists, are children of God.
-God and Jesus did not say that mankind inherited sin from Adam and that God sent Jesus to be killed for this “inherited sin.” The doctrines of inherited sin and vicarious atonement were invented by Christians three hundred years after Jesus.
God sent Jesus only for Jews:
-“I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL”–(Matt. 15:24).
-“I pray for them (JEWS): I pray NOT for the world”–(John 17:9).
-“For the Son of man is come to SEEK AND SAVE THAT (JEWS) WHICH WAS LOST”–(Luke 19:10. Of which some ten of these Jewish Twelve Tribes were said to be in Kashmir at the time; Jesus is noted to have traveled to India).
-“Go NOT into the way of the Gentiles, and into any of the city of the Samaritans enter ye NOT: But go rather to the LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL”–(Matt. 10:5-6; 18:11).
-Jesus told the Samaritan woman: “Ye worship ye know not what: we (Jews) know what we worship: for SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS”–(John 4:21).
–“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine”–(Matt. 7:6).
-“It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs”–(Matthew 15:26).
-Jesus spoke in parables so the “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved. Jesus explained in private to his followers why he speak in parables: “Unto you (who have God) it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them (non-Jews) that are without (God), all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them”–(Mark 4:9-12). In other words, though the non-Jews may be sincere seekers of truth, Jesus spoke in parables so that they would not understand his words because he did not want them to accept God and have their sins forgiven.As prophet, Jesus could not turn away anyone; this is why he indulged non-Jews; but he could avoid them, which he did, as is evident from his admonition to his disciples not to preach to non-Jews, and from his speaking in parables so that they would not understand. This statement by Jesus also proves conclusively that Jesus did NOT come to save sinners.
Jesus preached remission of sins through repentance and for-giveness (not through crucifixion and vicarious atonement):
-“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 temp-tation; 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: be-cause 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).
Jesus is “redeemer” in that the Israelites who accept Jesus as “rabbi” (teacher) from God and repent their sins are forgiven.
Jesus was a MUSLIM –one who submits to the “will” of God– and he taught ISLAM –submission to the “will” of God:
Jesus declares that he is a MUSLIM:
-“My meat is to do the will of HIM (God)that sent me and to finish HIS work;”
-“I seek NOT MY OWN WILL, but the WILL OF THE FATHER…If I bear witness of myself, my witness is NOT TRUE;”
-“I came…not to do mine own will, BUT THE WILL OF HIM THAT SENT ME;”
-“My doctrine is not mine, BUT HIS THAT SENT ME;”
-“HE (God) gave me a commandment, WHAT I SHOULD SAY, AND WHAT I SHOULD SPEAK”–(John 4:34; 5:30-31; 6:38; 7:16; 12:49.
-“I have glorified thee on the earth: I HAVE FINISHED THE WORK WHICH THOU GAVEST ME TO DO’–(John 17:4. If Jesus had come to die for the sins of the world, he could not have said that his work was finished).
-“I have manifested thy name unto the men (the Jews) which THOU GAVEST ME out of the world”–(John 17:6. If Jesus was sent to the world he could not have been given some men “out of the world”: he would have been given all men of the world). If Jesus was God or Son of God, the Christian’s God and Son of God is/was a MUSLIM.
Jesus taught ISLAM:
-“The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: ALL therefore WHATSOEVER they bid you observe, that OBSERVE AND DO;”
-“if thou wilt enter into life, KEEP THE COMMAND-MENTS (brought by Moses);
-“except your RIGHTEOUSNESS shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, YE SHALL IN NO CASE ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN”–(Matthew 23:2-3; 19:17-18; 5:20).
And the Mosaic law does not teach inherited sin and vicarious atonement). Since following the Mosaic law is what is required to get into heaven THERE IS NO NEED FOR JESUS! JESUS IS REDUNDANT!
–“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;” “When he, the Spirit of truth (the Comforter), is come, he will guide you into ALL TRUTH”–(John 14:15-16; 16:13). And this Comforteras Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani– has shown in his revealing book Muhammad in the Bible is the Prophet Mohammad. Mohammad abides “forever” through the Qur’an.
Since the Comforter will replace the Mosaic Law because he will guide into “ALL TRUTH” and will abide “FOREVER,” the Bible being devoid of “all truth” and perpetuity the BIBLE IS OBSOLETE!
Since the Comforter will replace the Mosaic law be-cause he will guide into “ALL TRUTH” and will abide “FOREVER,” THERE IS NO NEED FOR JESUS! JESUS IS REDUNDANT!
There is no wisdom in following a man who has not given “all truth.” Mohammad, the Comforter, has given us “all truth” –all that we need for our moral, social, intellectual, and spiritual upliftment are in the Qur’an which is to abide “FOREVER” to the Resurrection; the Qur’an consists of, exceeds, and supersedes all Scrip-tures. Christians can reject Mohammad, Christians can-not refute Mohammad’s claim to Divine Messengership.
Even if Mohammad was not the Comforter, Jesus and the Mosaic Law would still be REDUNDANT and the Bible OBSOLETE at the coming of the Comforter with “all Truth” who will “abide FOREVER.”
And if we follow the Comforter and attain eternal life in Paradise THERE IS NO NEED FOR A SECOND COMING OF JESUS. (Even in his alleged 1,000 years reign of his alleged second coming Jesus and the Mosaic law would be REDUNDANT and the Bible OBSOLETE as the “ANO-THER angel” with the “EVERLASTING Gospel” would rule –Revelation 14:6).
And since the Christian’s God and son of God, Jesus, says that heaven lies in faith (observance of the law) and good works (righteousness) THERE IS NO NEED FOR INHERITED SIN AND VICARIOUS ATONEMENT!
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 the Jews and to fore-tell the coming of the Comforter (Mohammad)who will guide into “all truth” and “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.
What is holding you back from baptizing
with Allāh, the Best of Baptizers?

2. Whereas the Gospels portray Jesus as being unmarried, Allāh tells us in His Qur’an: “And certainly We sent messengers before thee (Mohammad) and appointed for them wives and children”–Qur’an 13:38. And Allāh mentions Jesus among eighteen prophets who had fathers and children–(Qur’an 6:84-87). According to a recent news-paper report, a 4thcentury papyrus fragment was found that suggests Jesus had a “wife”: “The translation of the 4th century Coptic papyrus by a Harvard scholar read “Jesus said to them, my wife.””–(Toronto Star, Saturday, December 29, 2012, Art; Lost & Found by Hamida Ghafour, p. WD 5).
To have children, Jesus must have a wife/consort, but according to the Gospels Jesus had no wife and children. If Jesus was married why is there no mention of it in the Gospels? The answer would seem simple. If Jesus had a wife and children, and as Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God, it would mean that God has a daughter-in-law and grandchildren, and even great grandchildren and even other greats as we move down the trail of descendants; and it would also mean that these descendants would, as their father, have the powers to perform miracles through the ages and also among us today –if Jesus’ followers, being mortals, could perform such miracles as Jesus gave them power–(Matt. 10:7-8)– consider how much more potent his own “divine” off-spring would be.
These ‘multi-great’ grandchildren would be able to feed multitudes on a few loaves and fish –which would take care of any famine or starvation, and food-banks– and also be able to save the cash flow of the world’s ‘drinkers’ by turning mega loads of water into wine –though this might upset and put the ‘spirit’ czars out of business; they may have to hook fish or fork potato banks for a living. These “heaven-ly” children would also heal the blind and the sick and raise the dead –man would have found his utopia– though all this would put an end to doctors and hospitals and undertakers and grave-diggers, and to stem-cell research and cloning, as well as an end to all the millions in money collected for cancer and other researches.
The scenario would pretty much be the same regarding the belief that Jesus is God –God would have a mortal wife, children, grand’s, etc. Thus, the builders of the Church probably having foreseen this expanse of insanity ruled it necessary to wall Jesus in the room of celibacy. Or, since Jesus’ purpose was to be scapegoat for sinners, there was no need for him to have a wife and children. Any wonder the Church does not seem please over the discovery of this ‘Jesus had a wife’ document?
Allāh the All-Knowing revealed in His Qur’an 10:92 that He saved Pharaoh’s body to be a sign for future generations. It took the world some twelve hundred years after this Qur’anic revelation, and nearly twenty-five hundred years after the fact, to discover this truth of Allāh.
Allāh also revealed in His Qur’an 89:7 the existence of a city named Iram which seemed unheard of in history. But the December 1978 edition of National Geographic carried an article on the excavation of a city named “Ebla” whereby this city of Iram is mentioned. The article titled EBLA Splendor Of An Unknown Empire is written by Howard La Fay. The article states:
“in 1975”, “Dr. Paolo Matthiae of the University of Rome” disco-vered “the ruins of a palace apparently destroyed in the 23rd century B.C.” “The names of cities thought to have been founded much later, such as Beirut and Byblos, leap from the tablets…Also included is Iram, an obscure city referred to in Sura 89 of the Koran.
Most intriguing of all are the personal names found on the Ebla tablets. They include Ab-ra-mu (Abraham), E-sa-um (Esau), and Sa-u-lum (Saul).” “The Book of Genesis introduces him (Abraham) as a native of Ur of the Chaldees, in southern Mesopotamia. Scholars have always taken this at face value.” “But we now encounter a Syrian capital, dating from five hundred years before the widely accepted date for Abraham….Muslim scholars have long held that Abraham’s epic journey occurred about 2300 B.C.” (pp. 731, 735, 736). (See also Ency. Britannica, Vol. 1. Art. Abraham).
It took mankind thousands of years to discover the truth of the Qur’an that the body of Ramses was preserved and the existence of Iram. From Allāh, Mohammad also gave unerring prophecies and pronouncements on science.Whether the “Jesus” papyrus fragment is genuine or not, the words of Allāh enshrined in His Qur’an are true. Jesus had a “wife.”

6. That Christianity is lies, falsehood, and blasphemy:
-Christianity is lies:(a) That mankind inherited sin from Adam or that God put Adam’s sin onto every person and then loads every-one’s sins onto Jesus is a “lie;” there is no place in the Bible where God says that mankind inherited sin from Adam or that He put Adam’s sin onto every person and then loads everyone’s sins onto Jesus. (b) That God sent Jesus to be killed for the sins of the world is a “lie;” there is no place in the Bible where God says that He sent Jesus to be killed for the sins of others. (John 3:16 is NOT about “crucifixion;” it is about miracles; read from verse one). As noted these doctrines were invented by Christians three hundred years after Christ.
–Christianity is falsehood:To teach doctrines in the name of God that God did not reveal is “falsehood.” (a) That Jesus is Son of God is falsehood; Jesus is only “CALLED” son of God. The Bible is pregnant with sons and daughters of God. (b) That Jesus is God is “falsehood;” only the name Immanuel is “interpreted” to mean God with us. There is no place in the Bible where God says He came as Jesus. (c) That Jesus is part of a Trinity with God is “falsehood;” there is no place in the Bible where God says that He incarnated Himself as Jesus. Trinity was concocted by Christian Fathers three hundred years After Christ.
–Christians follow and teach blasphemy:To teach doctrine(s) in the name of God that God did not reveal and which doctrine(s) impugn the Purity of Godhead is blasphemy. (a) To say that God takes the sin of the guilty and give it to the innocent is to attribute injustice to God; which is “blasphemy.” (b) To say that God sent the sinless to be killed for sinners not only make God unjust but make God complicit in murder. If God loaded sins from the guilty onto the innocent and vice versa and had the sinless/innocent killed for the sinners/guilty then He is lower than some humans, and is not worthy of worship; but God is “just.” Christians need to answer this: “Should mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?”–(Job 4:17). (c) God is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent, thus God does not need to take forms to go anyplace to do anything or to gain any knowledge of anything. To say that God incarnated Himself is to say that God went into the belly of a woman and came out her vagina; which is a blatant contradiction of the Bible which asks: “How then can man be justified with God? or HOW CAN HE BE CLEAN THAT IS BORN OF A WOMAN?”–(Job 25:4). Thus, since Christians made God “born of a woman” God must be NOT “clean.” And as Adam, Eve, and Melchisedec –who had no parents, or beginning or end– were not “born of a woman,” then according to Christians Adam, Eve and Melchisedec are cleaner than God; which is blasphemy of the highest order.
