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.
Blind faith is no passport to Paradise
“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord;
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be
as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool”
Reason is the door to God
That the Bible is the “most widely distributed” book and printed in more than “2,800 languages” and contains “moral and spiritual teachings” do not mean that the Bible is “all” Word of God; neither do they make Jesus “begotten” Son of God and vicarious atoner and that mankind inherited sin from Adam.
(And Hinduism’s Rig Veda is the oldest Scripture; and perhaps all Scriptures are printed in several languages and contain “moral and spiritual teachings”).
Contrary to Christian’s bold claim that the Bible is “all” Word of God, the Bible itself acknowledges that it is falsified: “How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie”–(Jeremiah 8:8. New American Standard Bible, 1985 edition).
Clearly, by its own testimony, the Bible can hardly be praised as a “sacred volume.”
And Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote in their Awake magazine (Issue 2 April 2016; p.4):
“The Bible is made up of 66 books.…completed over a period of approximately 1,600 years.…written by about 40 human secretaries or scribes, some of whom were also farmers, fishermen, judges, kings, and musicians.” (Emphasis added).
Can Jehovah’s Witnesses show in the Bible where God says He gave revelation or inspiration to these “about 40 human secretaries or scribes”?
(Pious people can also give “moral and spiritual teachings;” and Nostradamus is said to have made prophecies that materialised).
As they mark the difference between Heaven and Hell, cardinal doctrines of a religion are to be clearly expressed: they are not to be left to the function of interpretation or assumption (much like a person embarking on a journey would require that his trip be clearly mapped out lest instead of arriving at Kennedy Airport he ends up at Kennedy Space Centre –Cape Canaveral).
“You shall know the truth,
and the truth shall set you free
(from lies, falsehood, and blasphemy)
(Before getting to the claims made by Jehovah’s Witnesses).
GOD CAN DO ANYTHING: If you ask Jehovah’s Witnesses “How could God have a son when He has no consort?” and how can mankind inherit sin from Adam? they readily hold up the scapegoat: “God can do anything.”
Yet the Jehovah’s Witnesses condemn other Christians for claiming that Jesus is God and/or one in a Trinity with God. (And these are the cardinal doctrines of their religion).
If the Jehovah’s Witnesses God “can do anything” and make Jesus son of God why can’t the other Christians’ God “do anything” and come as Jesus and/or have Jesus be one in a Trinity with God?
So “God can do anything;” but where in the Bible does God say that He fathered Jesus with Mary (and fatherhood –begetting – requires the joining of sperm and ovum)?
So “God can do anything;” but where in the Bible does God say that mankind inherited sin from Adam or that He loaded the sin of Adam onto very newborn baby then loads everyone’s sins onto Jesus? (Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christians are apt to show you the writings of Paul. But Paul is not God or prophet of God. Paul was a self-admitted liar who forged his own gospel and snared people through craft and guile. See Allāh and Jesus or Paul).
So “God can do anything;” but where in the Bible does God say I incarnated Myself as Jesus?
So “God can do anything;” but where in the Bible does God say He sent Jesus to be killed for sins? (And John 3:16 is not about crucifixion. See Jesus-inherited sin to ascension. Intriguingly, this verse on which Christianity stands is noted only in the Gospel “according to” John).
Your ‘physician chopping off his head cannot cure you of your headache.’ If one can die for the sin of others then one can take food, medication, and laxative to free others of hunger, ailment, and constipation –vicarious refreshment.
Jesus was a Muslim and taught Islam
Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “The name Jehovah appears some 7,000 times in the original text of the Bible. The meaning associated with the name is I shall prove to be what I shall prove to be.” (Exodus 3:14) God can BECOME WHATEVER HE DEEMS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PURPOSE.”A
That the name “Jehovah” “appears some 7,000 times in the original text of the Bible” is Christian crockery. The name “Jehovah” is not even mentioned once in the “original text” of the Bible. (Jesus called out from the cross to “ELI” not to Jehovah!-Matthew 27:46)
“Jehovah” was coined in the human mint eighteen hundred years after Jesus and stamped with the Divine head by the founding Father(s) of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
God was known to Jews as Yahweh. But it is said that Jews considered the name of God too holy to articulate so they referred to Him as YHWH. Vowels were later added to YHWH which some called Yahweh and some Yehowah (you cannot get “Jehovah” from YHWH; there is no “J” in the Hebrew alphabet). Jehovah does not exist
And as God “can do anything” and “can become whatever He deems necessary in order to accomplish His purpose,” Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) should be following Hinduism with its millions of Gods and karma and reincarnation and accepting that God ‘became’ Boar and Man-Lion etc; as he “deems necessary in order to accomplish His purpose.”
Surely, if the Christian’s God “can do anything” and “become whatever” so can the Hindu Gods. In fact Hinduism is superior to Christianity (see HOME).
And as “God can BECOME WHATEVER HE DEEMS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PURPOSE” then Jehovah’s Witnesses should be following Mohammad/Islam.
Surely Jehovah’s Witnesses cannot disprove that God “DEEMS (Mohammad) NECESSARY IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PURPOSE.”
WHO ARE JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES?
(Taken from the Internet. September, 2009. The cults.con.nz –New Zealand Cults, Sects, Religions, Christian organizations, and other groups– states about Jehovah’s Witnesses (Highlights are ours):
This group is strongly cultic, in both doctrine and mind control practices. No questioning of authority is allowed – a blind faith in the Watchtower is expected. They believe in salvation by works, which basically means they have to go door-knocking on Saturdays.
The founder warned members (repeated by the Watchtower in 1981) not to read the Bible exclusively or readers would revert back to orthodox Christian beliefs quite quickly. To prevent this, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society publishes huge amounts of literature which is compulsory reading for members. (It’s also a huge money-spinner for the Watchtower.)
There are numerous contradictions in this literature. For example, one scholar found at least 148 changes of official Watchtower doctrine during the eleven years following 1917.”
Started by Charles Taze Russell in 1879. In the same year he started publishing what is now Watchtower magazine. The then Zion’s Watchtower and Tract Society was established 1881 and chartered 1884 (and is now the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society). In 1931 the group was renamed Jehovah’s Witnesses. The name came from a spirit guide.
In 1912 Russell admitted to perjury and (under oath) to not knowing Greek, Hebrew, or Latin. The next year he lost a law suit against a newspaper which exposed a scam he had run selling “Miracle Wheat.” In the case it came out that the Watchtower was nothing more than a moneymaking scheme for Russell, who owned 99% of the shares in the holding company the profits went to.
….In 1940 the Society was outlawed in New Zealand for being a “subversive organisation.” In 1947 they were banned from Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). They have since been allowed back to both countries.”
“In New Zealand since 1996 more people have left the cult than have joined. Praise God.”
The New World Translation (NWT) is the Watchtower’s translation of the Bible. It is so inaccurate that people have said such things as:
“I have never seen any New Testament so badly translated…” – Dr Julius Mantey.
“From beginning to end, this volume [NWT] is a shining example of how the Bible should not be translated…” – Dr H H Rowley.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses boast: “Jehovah’s Witnesses do not just preach the Bible’s moral standards–they live by them.”B
As shown in Jesus-inherited sin there are evidences from the Bible, from Christian authorities, and from Christian medical investigation of photographs of the Shroud of Turin regarding the body in the Shroud that it is “proved that it was not a dead body.” And that the doctrines of inherited sin and vicarious atonement were invented by Christians three hundred years after Jesus.
It is doubtful that Jehovah’s Witnesses do not know of this scientific investigation and its finding and that inherited sin and vicarious atonement were devised by Christian Fathers.
Why then are Jehovah’s Witnesses propagating that Christ died on the cross/pole? Surely this is not living by the “moral standards” of the Bible.
Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christians) quote John 3:16 to support their claim that God sent Jesus to be crucified for sinners. Clearly, Jehovah’s Witnesses do know that they are using this verse out of context and that even in off-quoting it the verse has nothing to do with crucifixion. But that this verse of John 3:16 read from verse one shows that it is about miracles.
Why then are Jehovah’s Witnesses using this verse to teach crucifixion? Surely this is not living by the “moral standards” of the Bible.
Jehovah’s Witnesses seem to project themselves as knowing more than other Christians about Jesus/Christianity. It is doubtful then that Jehovah’s Witnesses are ignorant of the fact that the “concluding eleven verses of St. Mark-(16:9-20) and the well-known verse of St. Matthew-(28:19), speaking of the Son and the Father and the Holy Ghost, are forgeries” in the Bible.
Why then are Jehovah’s Witnesses preaching and bap-tizing in lands forbidden by Jesus who regarded non-Jews as “dogs” and “swine” and preached in parables so these “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved? Surely, to mislead people is not living by the “moral standards” of the Bible.
(Unless Jehovah’s Witnesses are Jewish, it is Jehovah’s Witnesses and other non-Jews that are the metaphorical “dogs” and “swine”).
Even if Jesus had said to teach the Gospels to all nations, yet this would not make Jesus God or Son of God or vicarious atoner or that man inherited sin from Adam. These cardinal doctrines of Christianity, as shown have no Divine or prophetic foundation.
It is amusing that Jehovah’s Witnesses charge other religions as being lies and false. Considering that Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christians) follow and teach doctrines that are devoid of Divine or prophetic foundation: doctrines invented by man.
If Jehovah’s Witnesses were ignorant that the verses of Matthew and Mark (noted above) are “forgeries” in the Bible and that the doctrines of inherited sin and vicarious atonement were invented by Christians three hundred years after Jesus, will Jehovah’s Witnesses now live by the “moral standards” of the Bible and inform the world that Christianity is a “false” religion?
The Gospel of Mark 16:16-18 reports Jesus as saying: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved…and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.” Have Jehovah’s Witnesses drunk any “deadly thing”? Jehovah’s Witnesses must put their dignity where their mouths are and drink this “deadly thing.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses and other Christians claim the Bible is “all” “Word of God” and that Jesus is the Son of God. If Jehovah’s Witnesses and 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 Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) trust their God and son of God? It is scandalous that Jehovah’s Witnesses and other 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). (See APPENDIX).
CLAIMS BY JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES
1. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “The Bible is “inspired of God.” (2 Timothy 3:16) Although human penned the words, God directed their thoughts, so that the Bible is really “the word of God.”–1 Thessalonians 2:13.”3
Response: While Allāh tells us in His QUR’AN that He raised up prophets/messengers among all people and gave them guidance, He specifically tells us that He gave Moses the Torah, David the Psalms, and Jesus the Gospels (though Allāh also tells us what not to believe of these Books that are passing under their names, as they were tampered with). Thus, it is expected that Scriptures preceding the Qur’an to have words of God.
However, Timothy and Thessalonians are the writings of PAUL. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,for instruction in righteousness.” Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) glibly quote this verse of Paul in their effort to spread their lies, falsehood, and blasphemy.
-The Bible could not be “all” scripture “given by inspiration of God” when PAUL was a self-admitted liar, who “forged” his own gospel; who was uncertain whether he had the Holy Spirit with him and gave his own judgment; and who snared people into following his teachings through guile and craft.
-The Bible could not be “all” scripture “given by inspiration of God when, contrary to Jehovah’s Witnesses bold claim, the Bible itself says that it was falsified: “How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES HAS MADE IT INTO A LIE”–(Jeremiah 8:8. New American Standard Bible, 1985 edition).
–The Bible could not be “all” scripture “given by inspiration of God” when the Bible contains “forgeries;” and was “tampered with” as admitted to by Jehovah’s Witnesses (See Bible corrupt & obsolete).
Surely then, to teach that the Bible is “all” inspired word of God is not living by the “moral standards” of the Bible.
Jehovah’s Witnesses continue: “The Bible was written over a period of 16 centuries, by some 40 contributors from diverse backgrounds. Nevertheless, the finished product is harmonious from beginning to end.”
Response: That the Bible is “harmonious from beginning to end;” and is the “perfect source of absolute, authoritative, binding, inerrant truth” from God as Pastor Dr. James Mc Donald claims, is patent Christian ‘claptrap and lip-talk.’ The Bible has more human weavings than a Galilean’s fish net.
Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves admitted that the BIBLE was “tampered with;” it also contains “monumental errors” and contradictions, and Christians say there are “probably 50,000 errors” in the BIBLE.
Clearly, this Bible could hardly be plumed as being “harmo-nious” and “the “perfect source of absolute, authoritative, binding, inerrant truth” from God. (Words seem to have no value to some Christians. But this is not surprising, considering that Christians follow and teach lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. See Christianity-lies, evil, hate).
That the Bible has been adulterated by the “lying pen of the scribes” and contains some “50,000 errors” (or even 5,000 err-ors) are not matters for dispute; they are the Christian’s God and students own findings.
In contrast, Allāh says that He revealed the Qur’an and would protect it–(Qur’an 15:9); and so it is: after more than fifteen hundred years not one “jot” (letter) has been changed: heaven and earth shall pass away but not one word of Allāh shall pass away. And so it shall be. Allāho Akbar!
The Qur’an consists of the best teachings of previous Books that are applicable to all times and also teachings not given to earlier prophets–(98:2-3). The Qur’an comprises of, exceeds, and supersedes all other Divine Revelations; it is the best Message–(7:185; 39:23; 77:50). No Scripture can equal the “grand and noble truths” expressed in the Qur’an. It is the Qur’an that is “harmonious from beginning to end” and the “perfect source of absolute, authoritative, binding, inerrant” truth from God.
Jehovah’s Witnesses pressed on with their “harmonious” “Word of God” claiming: “The oldest portion of the Bible dates back to the 16th century B.C.E. This is before the appearance of the Hindu Rig-Veda (in about 1300 B.C.E.), or the Buddhist “Canon of the Three Baskets” (fifth century B.C.E.), or the Islamic Koran (seventh century C.E.), as well as the Shinto Nihongi (720 C.E.).
Response: So what that the Bible preceded the Qur’an and other Scriptures? Age and antiquity are no guarantee of authenticity and accuracy. As already shown, the BIBLE is anything but a “Unique Book” fully authentic and accurate. A claim debunked by the Biblical God and Christian sources. And even by Jeho-vah’s Witnesses.
Unlike the Qur’an which was memorized and written down upon its revelation, for almost a thousand years the Bible was handed down through oral transmission. (See BIBLE).
2. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus was foretold in many places of the Bible, such as in Micah, Isaiah, Zechariah, Psalm, and Daniel.4
Response: As shown in JESUS FORETOLD most of the prophecies allegedly alluding to Jesus come from the Deutero-Isaiah period (chapters 40-55). This is the period when Jews were under Babylonian captivity. The same period of the worship of the Babylonian Sun-God, Bêl/Baal, by the pagans. Hence, the “anonymous” prophet must have been influenced by the passion Play of Baal and, hoping for a similar “savior” for the Jewish people, copied the pagan belief into Jewish literature.
However, even if Jesus was foretold on every page of the Bible, yet this would not make him GOD or SON OF GOD or one in a TRINITY or vicarious atoner or that mankind INHERITED SIN from Adam. In fact, some of these writings of the Old Testament that Christians forge around Jesus do not even apply to Jesus (See JESUS FORETOLD).
While God gave information about the coming of various prophets –Ishmael, Isaac, Jesus, John the Baptist, Mohammad.
It is intriguing that Jesus lived for “eons” in heaven helping God create everything before God sent him to earth, as Christians claim, and instead of God having these prophets like Isaiah clearly foretell that He is sending His “Son” Jesus, and that He will have Jesus killed for the sin of Adam which He has put onto every baby/man and then transferred it from every person onto Jesus’ head, and give clear details how Jesus will be arrested, tried and crucified; that God would instead tell these prophets that a woman will have a child whose name shall be “CALLED“ Jesus, that this “ruler” will be born in Bethlehem; and that a “Messiah” will be raised up from the lineage of David for the Israelites; and give cryptic wordings that would require many Christian heads to try to decide whether this “ruler” and “Messiah” is God or only Son of God or one in a Trinity with God; whether he died for inherited sin or for committed sin; and for two thousand years to have Jesus’ so-called followers wandering in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion as to who Jesus was/is and his mission. (If Jesus is God, God foretold his birth, life, and death).
Contrast this Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christian’s) God with the God of Mohammad and Muslims who tells us in clear, non-cryptic words that Mohammad is the Servant and Messenger of Allāh; and that the cardinal doctrines of Islam are Unity of Allāh, Prayer, Zakaat (Charity), Fasting, and Hajj/Pilgrimage to Makkah (and which doctrines are explained by the Prophet Mohammad).
And considering that Christians view Mohammad as “fraud” and “impostor;” then the God of this “fraud” has more sense and wisdom to clearly show the line between Hell and Paradise than the God of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christians.
Moreover, in his three years of ministry all the Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christian’s) SON OF GODdid was perform some miracles (which even false Christs and false prophets can perform as Jesus himself declared), denigrated people outside his race as “dogs” and “swine” and preached in parables to keep them out of heaven; gave a sermon riddled with absurdities, and bequeathed to the family and the world hatred and division, and fire and sword. (See JESUS LOVES US; JESUS-ONLY FOR JEWS; JESUS-ABSURD DOCTRINES; JESUS-PEACE & JOY).
In contrast, Mohammad in his twenty-two years ministry –in which he was persecuted, besieged, under the assassin’s blade, forced into exile, pursued, and warred on– brought people from the futility and degradation of idolatry, and the irrationality of polytheism; from drunkenness and profligacy; liberated WOMAN and gave her rights alongside man from the cradle all the way to Paradise; freed the SLAVE; ennobled the Orphan; built a community; and gave to us the incomparable QUR’AN that contains guidance in all aspects of life–moral, social, intellectual, and spiritual. And according to Christians Mohammad was a “fraud” and not foretold anywhere. Yet Mohammad accomplished and did more for humanity than the Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christian’s) God and Son of God and vicarious atoner.
(While we have shown, based on teachings of the Bible and Christian’s scientific examination of the Shroud of Turn (the linen in which Jesus is said to have been placed after the “crucifixion”) that CHRISTIANITY IS A FAKE, Reza Aslan –a Muslim who converted to Christianity and reverted to Islam after studying the Bible and the life of Jesus– has added another dimension to the falsity of Christianity
Reza Aslan has shown in his scholarly presentation Zealot, The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, that the Gospelic Jesus is NOTthe historical Jesus; that “the gospels are not about a man known as Jesus of Nazareth who lived two thousand years ago; they are about a messiah whom the gospel writers viewed as an eternal being sitting at the right hand of God;” that “Despite two millennia of Christian apologetics, the fact is that belief in a dying and rising messiah simply did not exist in Judaism.” And, “In the entire history of Jewish thought there is not a single line of scripture that says the messiah is to suffer, die, and rise again on the third day….To the Jews, a crucified messiah was nothing less than a contradiction in terms. The very fact of Jesus’s crucifixion annulled his messianic claims.”(pp. 133-134; 165; 177-178. Reza Aslan’s book is published by Random House. This book is a must read for those interested in Jesus Christ. Even if you have to beg, borrow, or chisel it).
Christianity is not only a fake, CHRISTIANITY IS A COLOSSAL FAKE. Christians tailored Jesus to fit into the suit in which they want him.In believing that Trinity/Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin and vicarious atonement will take them to heaven Christians are living on Fantasy Island. Every one who wants to go to heaven has to bend his/her knees to Allāh and the Messengership of Mohammad: There is no God but Allāh; Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh! As shown in our presentations on Mohammad
no man cometh to God but by Mohammad
Christians can reject Mohammad, Christians cannot refute Mohammad’s claim to Divine Messengership. In fact, of all the claimants to Divine Dispensation, Jesus included, Mohammad is the only one who can substantiate his claim.
Miracles, which can also be performed by false Christs and false prophets, as Jesus declared–(Matt. 24:24), and a few sermons, which can perhaps be delivered by any wise person having oratory skills, are not proofs of prophethood–much less are they proof of Divinity.
That false Christs and false prophets shall show signs and to beware of false prophets who are wolves disguised as sheep–(Mark 13:22; Matt. 7:15), this could easily apply to Jesus. Not only did Jesus left no written work, even his “miracles” could arguably be that of a “false” prophet. Moreso, in his ministry which lasted only three years, according to the Gospel(s), he wanted to slaughter all his enemies who did not want him to rule–(Luke 19:27, Jesus advocates murder); compared to Mohammad who faced death for two decades of his twenty-three year ministry; and who yet forgave his horrid enemies –Jesus had no captives to forgive; and he prayed for “God” to forgive his “crucifiers;” though it is senseless to “forgive” “crucifiers” if they were fulfilling Scripture by crucifying” him.
Also, it may be argued that if Jesus’ birth was miraculous and his miracles were factual or literal, it is doubtful that Jews would dishonor him and want to crucify him considering that the Jewish landscape is multi-colored with miracles, so much so that even Balaam’s ass spoke to Balaam–(Num. 22:28, 30)
After recording the birth of Jesus, the next Biblical account we hear of Jesus, after his circumcision at eight days old, is at the age of twelve at Jerusalem. Then he disappeared from the Gospels and appeared eighteen years later, at the age of thirty, at the river Jordan. For some twenty-nine of his alleged thirty-three years of his living there is no Biblical account of Jesus. Considering the manner in which the Gospels have reached us –with its “improbabilities and contradictions”– they can hardly be an adequate guide on the personality of Jesus Christ.
Coupled with the fact that there are disagreements between Christians as to the true identity and mission of Christ –whereas some hold that Christ is Trinity/God (putting God into the belly of Mary for nine months and bringing Him out her vagina and calling Mary “Mother of God” and making God son of a woman He created) some say that there is no Trinity (that Trinity could only have come from the “Devil”) and that Christ is only son of God (Jesus is only “CALLED” son of God, and the Bible shows that God has a legion of sons and daughters); whereas some Christians say Christ died for inherited sin others say he died for committed sin; whereas some say Jesus was of virgin birth Paul taught Jesus had a father– and also whereas some Christians believe Jesus was killed on the cross, was buried and risen, “some of the early Christian sects did not believe that Christ was killed on the cross. The Basilidans believed that some one else was substituted for him. The Docetae held that Christ never had a real physical or natural body, but only an apparent or phantom body, and that his Crucifixion was only apparent, not real. The Marcionite Gospel (about A.D. 138) denied that Jesus was born, and merely said that he appeared in human form.” (Yusuf Ali, Qur’anic comm. 663).
Such varied and dubious expositions can hardly be sources of genuine inspiration. But for Mohammad Jesus Christ may have long since been relegated to the bin of myths and legends. It was Mohammad who, through the Divine Revelation of the infallible Qur’an, removed the shroud of calumny wrapped around Jesus and his mother, Mary –that Mary was an “adulteress” and Jesus was of illegitimate birth– and appareled them in rubious robes or righteousness; and cleared away the cumulous clouds of conjectures shrouding Jesus and sat him elegantly in the celestial spotlight of Divine Truth –of him being human and a prophet of God– and has secured for him today the unflagging allegiance of more than one billion Muslims. And counting. As Islam spirits on. Inexorably. Invincibly. Impregnably. As Divinely decreed to prevail over all religions–(Qur’an 9:33; 48:28; 61:9).
Mohammad was no anti-Christ! Mohammad “testify” of Christ! (John 15:26).
It would be a gross error to view Muslims as “enemies” of Jesus. In fact, considering that Jesus taught the Unity of God, sinless birth, eternal life through obedience to the Commandments of God and to love him requires following the Comforter, (Mohammad), Muslims, who observe these teachings of Jesus, are the true followers of Jesus).
3. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote that to “draw the first humans away from God”: “Satan lied. Using a serpent, much as a ventriloquist uses a dummy, the Devil asked Eve…”5
Response: (Unlike the Qur’an which gave the reason for Satan misleading Eve/Adam, the Bible does not give the reason).
If the Devil had spoken through the serpent then the serpent was a helpless pawn and should NOT have been the one to be “cursed” to crawl upon his belly and eat dust all his life–(Gen. 3:14). A “dummy” or one who is possessed by the Devil is not responsible for his/her actions. For the Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christians God) to punish the serpent is a gross injustice.
Interestingly, in addition to cursing the serpent to crawl on its belly and eat dust, God also said to the serpent: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise thy heel” –(Genesis 3:15).
Jehovah’s Witnesses wrap this statement around Jesus, saying: “That proclamation guaranteed that the Devil would not be all-owed to do his evil deeds forever. As the King of the Messianic Kingdom, the promised Seed, Jesus Christ, will ‘bruise Satan in the head.’ Yes, “shortly,” Jesus will crush the rebel Satan!”6
Clearly this statement has nothing to do with Jesus. Not only is the serpent a blameless party under the “ventriloquist” Satan, to conflate this serpent with Jesus “bruising” Satan’s head is pre-posterous.
And if Jesus would “shortly” “bruise Satan in the head” then Satan would in turn have to “bruise” Jesus on his “heel” as God says in the verse. But so far Satan has not “bruised” Jesus; and Jesus is no longer present for Satan to “bruise” him. (Jesus being allegedly crucified could not be taken as Satan “bruising” Jesus, because according to Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christians Jesus’ “crucifixion” was a fulfillment of prophecy as him being a “ransom” for sins. It was not a “bruising” from Satan).
That God had made man to live forever on earth, but the Devil upset God’s plan by bringing death and suffering, as Jehovah’s Witnesses propagate.(See CHRISTIANITY-MAN MADE TO LIVE FOREVER)
4. In Matthew 28:19 Jesus is alleged to have instructed his followers to go into he world and baptize people in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (and which verse as well as those of Mark 16:9-20, as noted in item #7, are forgeries in the BIBLE), and Jehovah’s Witnesses are “proclaiming” the Gospels all over the world in “harmony” with Jesus’ saying:“this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end will come”–(Matthew 24:14).
Response: It is strange that Jesus should say that the Gospels shall be preached to all nations when he declared that God sent him only to the Jews and he regarded the non-Jewish world as “dogs” and “swine” and commanded his disciples that they go not into the way of these “dogs” and “swine” and he even went so far as to preach in parables so these “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved. (See JESUS-ONLY FOR JEWS).
The world cannot come to end when the Gospels are preached to very nation seeing that Jesus said that his people is to follow the COMFORTER (MOHAMMAD) who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide forever,” in which event the Bible is OBSOLETE.
(Even if Mohammad was not the Comforter, the world cannot end with the preaching of the Gospels to all nations, for the Comforter would still have to come with “all truth” and “abide for ever”)
In fact, since Jesus exhorted the Jews to follow the Mosaic Law and taught that eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law (until the coming of the Comforter), the Bible was rendered OBSOLETE six hundred years after Christ and also Christ is REDUNDANT. Perhaps this is why Jews did not care for Jesus; they must have reasoned that as eternal life lies in the Mosaic Law THEY DID NOT NEED JESUS.
If the world would come to an end after the preaching of the Gospels in all nations, then those nations that do not want the world to end all they need do is keep the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christians out of their lands and bar their materials on the Internet from their countries and they would have outwitted the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Christian’s God and live “forever,” (or force the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christian’s God to find another plan on how to bring the world to an end; much like the Devil forced Him to change His plan to have man live forever by bringing death and suffering into world, as Jehovah’s Witnesses say).
5. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “even though many terrible things have been done in the name of God or of Christ, there is nothing in the Bible to suggest that either of them has ever approved of such actions.8
Response:You need to read your Bible again. The Christians God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, then Jesus) “approved”:
-punishing children for their parents “whoredoms”–(Num. 14:33-34. Also Rev. 2:20-23);
-decapitation: “And the Lord said unto Moses, take ALL THE HEADS of the people and HANG THEM UP before the Lord against the sun”–(Num. 25:4);
-killing disbelievers–(Deut. 13:12-16);
-terrorizing, slaying, poisoning and feeding worshippers of false gods to beasts: “They (Jeshurun and his children) have moved me (God) to jealousy with that which is not God…I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them…I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs”–(Deut. 32: 15-25);
-mutilating enemies: (The Israelites asked God “Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them”) “And the Lord said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand…and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men…and they pursued after him (Adonibezek), and caught him and CUT OFF HIS THUMBS and his GREAT TOES. And Adonibezek said, THREE SCORE AND TEN kings, having their THUMBS and their GREAT TOES CUT OFF”–(Judges 1:1-7. Islam only allows a defensive fighting and certainly not to “go up” and kill people to occupy their lands);
-slaying even the “infant and suckling” in war–(1 Samuel 15:2-3);
-having men’s wives violated because of their husband’s infidelity–(2 Samuel 12:7-11);
-cutting prisoners with “saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes”–(2 Samuel 12:31; 1 Chron. 20:3);
–unbridled polygamy and concubinage–(1 Kings 11:3);
-having mischievous children torn by bears: “there came forth little children…and mocked him (Elisha). And he…cursed them in the name of the Lord, and there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them”–(2 Kings 2:22-24);
-mutilating “little ones” and ravishing the wives of others–(Psalm 137:9; Isaiah 13:16);
-killing fetus during war–(Isaiah 13:15, 18; Hosea 13:16);
-bondaging women and her daughter–(Gen. 3:16; Ex. 21:7; Ephesians 5:22-23, 33; 1 Tim. 2:11-12);
-beating women and children to bring them into obedience and into silence and subjection–(Prov. 13:24; 19:18; 23:13-14. 1Tim. 3:4; Heb. 12:6-8. And without doubt every “Christian” husband wants to deliver his stubborn and rebellious wife’s “soul from hell”);
-burning daughters who commit “whoredom”–(Gen 38:24; Lev. 21:9);
-stoning to death blasphemers, apostates, married damsel with-out the “token of virginity,” and the virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed,” stubborn and rebellious sons, and the adulteress–(Lev. 24:11-16, 23; Deut; 13:5-16; 17:2-5; Deut. 22:20-21; 22:23-24; 21:18-21; John 8:3-5);
-killing the witch, one who curses his father or mother, the adulterer, homosexuals, and the man who commits bestiality–(Ex. 22:18; Lev. 20:9; 10-12; Deut. 22:22; Lev. 20:13; 15-16);
-burning a man who takes a “wife and her mother”–(Lev. 20:14);
-Christians bondaging fellow Christians (as only Christians honor Christ as God/son of God): “Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, AS UNTO CHRIST. Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the SERVANTS OF CHRIST, doing the WILL OF GOD from the heart”–(Ephesians 6:5-6; Colossians 3:22).
-agreeing with adversaries to avoid being thrown in jail–(Matt. 5:25-26; perhaps this is what the Church and Christian Europe were doing when the Nazis were holocausting Jews).
This teaching of Jesus states: “Agree with thine adver-sary 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); which agreeing would entail lying in every matter the adversary requires –that Moses says not to bear false witness is superseded by Jesus who is said to be God/Son of God and who came centuries AFTER Moses; and God used “a lying spirit” to deceive king Ahab–1 Kings 22:12-23); and Paul “lied” to bring people to worship God. (See ALLĀH & JESUS OR PAUL)
This teaching of Jesus 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.
Thus, Christians are licensed to lie in material matters to avoid “prison;” and to lie in theological matters to spread their belief (though Paul’s “lie” brought people into worship of paganism).
Perhaps it is this un-principle of Paul to “lie” that lead Christians to retain forged verses in the BIBLE and to keep such materials as “virgin” of virgin birth and “begotten” of “begotten son,” etc; in their 1500 non-English Bibles that they have expunged from English ones. Perhaps this is where the Church got its inspiration to teach doctrines –Trinity, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– that God did not reveal; and which propelled Pope John XXIII –when cornered with irrefutable evidence that the body (of Christ) in the Shroud of Turin “was not a dead body“– to proclaim that “the death of Jesus Christ is not essential” for belief in the “blood of Christ.” (See JESUS-INHERITED SIN).
(Are such the works of divine messengers or devil disciples? Are they works of decency and dignity or of dishonesty and deception?) (Such is Christianity: rooted in falsehood nourished on deception).
Muhammad Ali comments on Qur’an 18:1: “Christianity, in its present form, being opposed to the true teachings of Christ, is thus the only AntiChrist known to the Qur’an.”
Blind faith is no passport to Paradise.
-killing of those who do not share the Christians’ views, and enemies opposed to Christian rule–(Matt. 12:30; Luke 19:27; the Crusades will now be rolling out of America to secure Jerusalem for Christ’s landing; we might even get an American “Hitler” to avenge the killing of the Christian’s God/son of God);
-of woman being an object for sex, as she is good only “to avoid fornication–(1 Cor 7:1-2);
-of woman as being inferior to man–(1 Cor. 11:7-9);
-of woman as being the transgressor and betrayer of man–(1 Tim. 2:14; Gen. 3:4-12; Ezek. 16:44);
-of woman as “defiler” of man–(Rev. 7:4-8; 14:3-4);
-trading in slavery: “And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it”–(Joel 3:8).
-approved killing all males and all women with sexual experience and taking little virgin girls as sex slaves: “And they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses…. And Moses said unto them…Now therefore kill every MALE among the LITTLE ONES (of the captives), and kill EVERY WOMAN who hath known man by lying with him, but ALL THE WOMEN CHILDREN, that have not known a man by lying with him (virgin girls) KEEP ALIVE FOR YOURSELVES….and of WOMEN that had not known man by lying with him (virgin girls), were 32,000”–(Numbers 31:1-53). (See CHRISTIANITY-SEX SLAVES & PREPUBESCENT GIRLS).
This is not surprising, considering that the Biblical/Christian’s God (“Jesus”) is a man or war: “The Lord is a MAN OF WAR: the Lord is his name”–(Exodus 15:3).
Interestingly, Christians do not wear jewelry and make-up, claiming that God forbids it. So Christians cannot wear jewelry and make-up but they can have a legion of wives and concubines, as Solomon and his son, Rehoboam–(1 Kings 11:1-3; 2 Chronicles 11:21); they can give the adulterer’s wife to his neighbor to be violated, as God gave David’s wives to his neighbor to have sex with them for David’s ‘despising’ God–(2 Samuel 12:9-11); and they can engage in aggression for land and kill all the males –young and old– and all the sexually-experienced females and take all the little virgin girls as sex slaves, as noted above–(Numbers 31:1-53).
And why are Christian men not bearded and dressed as Jesus in long white gown and sandals (where possible)? and why are Christian women not dressed in long dress and head-cover (HIJAB) as Mary, their “Mother of God” and mother of their Son of God?
As noted in CHRISTIANITY-SEX SLAVES & PREPUBESCENT GIRLS the Christian critic and apologist states: “the Holy Bible makes a reference to the general age of a girl considered for marriage. The reference is found in a parable where God likens Israel to a baby girl whom Yahweh took in and then eventually married….You grew up and developed and became the most beautiful of jewels. Your breasts were formed and your hair grew, you who were naked and bare. Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love.” And as noted, the Bible sanctions sex with seven year-olds.
JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES govern by the teaching of the Bible that “ONE Witness shall NOT rise up against a man for ANY iniquity or for ANY sin”–(Deut. 19:15). The Toronto Star, Tuesday, July 3, 2012, notes in its article by Wendy Gillis, “Sex abuse verdict emboldens Canadians” which reports the story of a Jehovah’s Witnesses girl when “she was 9 years old” being “repeatedly molested” by a male “fellow churchgoer;” that if the accused denies the charges against him and there is no one to substantiate the charges then the Jehovah’s Witnesses ““elders cannot take action”” because the Scriptures say ““‘No single witness should rise up against a man respecting any error or any sin.’””
It would be interesting to note the Jehovah’s Witnesses response if a 9-7 year-old Jehovah’s Witnesses girl was to have consensual sex with a Jehovah’s Witnesses adult male and if the man was charged by the State, if Jehovah’s Witnesses would apply the defense in court that the Biblical teaching allows girls who have sprouted breasts and genital hairs as being ready for sex).
6. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “For true happiness, we need to view human life as sacred, even as Jehovah does. His Word forbids us to commit murder. (Matthew 19:16-18) In fact, God’s Law to Israel shows that he views the fetus as a precious life–not something to be destroyed. (Exodus 21:22-23).”9
Response: So the life of Jesus was not sacred that he should be killed for sinners? Isn’t it hypocritical of the Christian’s God to forbid the committing of murder and yet send an innocent man to be murdered?
That “God’s Law to Israel shows that he views the fetus as a precious life –not something to be destroyed” is more Christian hokum. Here is the Christian’s God (and as Christians say Jesus is God here is Jesus’) demonstration of His “sacredness” to human life and the fetus:
-“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as destruction (to Babylon) from the Almighty…Behold the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger … EVERYONE that is found shall be THRUST THROUGH; and everyone that is JOINED UNTO THEM (i.e. the FETUS) shall FALL BY THE SWORD, Their children also SHALL BE DASHED TO PIECES before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and THEIR WIVES RAVISHED…Their bows shall also DASH the young men to pieces; and they shall have NO PITY ON THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB; their eyes shall NOT SPARE CHILDREN”–(Isaiah 13:6, 9, 15-16, 18).
-“the wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness…he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels. Samaria shall become desolate…they shall fall BY THE SWORD: their INFANTS SHALL BE DASHED IN PIECES, and their WOMEN WITH CHILD SHALL BE RIPPED UP”–(Hosea 13:15-16). (See item #4 for more).
Rather than viewing “human life as sacred” and the “fetus as a precious life” the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ and Christian’s God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, then Jesus) had total disregard for “human life” and for the “fetus.”
In fact, the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christian’s God and Son of God (“Jesus”) had no regard for animals and their owners; catering to “devils” and loading a herd of swine with some two thousand devils and causing the poor, dumb animals to drown and a loss of property to the “piggers”–(Matt. 8:28-33; Mark 5:9-13).
7. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus was “kind, patient, and loving in his dealings with fellow humans. Jesus was thus imitating his heavenly Father and acting in harmony with his knowledge of Jehovah’s ways and personality.”10
Response. (Only the Christians that follow their leaders blindly rather than seek knowledge for themselves would swallow such crud)
While it is without doubt that God and His prophets are “kind, patient, and loving,” the Bible portrays God and Jesus in the opposite. In addition to that listed in items #4 and 5, Jesus was the opposite of “kind, patient, and loving,” as 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).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to castigate the peoples of Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum for not accepting his miracles and reforming and relegating them to the worst on Judgment day–(Matt. 11:20-24).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to ridicule the Jews as “generation of vipers;” “evil and adulterous generation;” as “fools” and “blind guides”–(Matt.12:34, 39; 23:16-17, 24).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to disown one’s mother, (it is a major sin)–(Matt. 19:19; 12:46-50): “Then one said unto him (Jesus), Behold, thy mother and thy brethren….But he answered and said, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?” (and he gestured to his disciples) “Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Mary could not have been guilty of neglecting God so that Jesus should dishonor her; Mary was chosen over all women because she was “highly favoured” by God, and “blessed”–(Luke 1:28). In fact, Christians honor Mary as “Mother of God.” And, to this day, as Christians claim, Mary makes appearances and even cure/give power to people so that they are canonized as saints).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to refer to other people as “dogs” and “swine” and preach in parables so they would not understand to keep them out of heaven (it is naked hate)–(Matt. 7:6; 15:26; Mark 4:9-12).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to view those who are not with you as being against you (and a person can be neutral): “He that is not with me is against me”–(Matthew 12:30).
-It is not “kind, patient, and loving” to order that your enemies who are against your rule to be slaughtered (even though they may not militate against you): “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me”–(Luke 19:27).
If Jesus’ decrees of Matthew 12:30 and Luke 19:27 were to be implemented some five billion non-Christians who do not accept Jesus as Divine and vicarious atoner would be slaughtered.
8. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Jesus commanded his followers to baptize new disciples “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”11
Response: From the beginning Jesus declared his mission was wholly and solely ONLY FOR JEWSto preach to them and to call (Jewish) sinners to REPENTANCE, so much so that he labeled non-Jews “dogs” and “swine” and preached in parables so these “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved. For Jesus to later claim that he was a “ransom for many” and “ransom for sins” and to preach to all nations and to baptize“in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” is not only gross contradiction but indicates that Jesus was not certain about his mission.
Moreover, these verses of the BIBLE are “forgeries” as Chris-tians know. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din points out in his book Open Letters To The Bishops of Salisbury & London:
“The concluding eleven verses of St. Mark-(16:9-20) and the well-known verse of St. Matthew-(28:19), speaking of the Son and the Father and the Holy Ghost, are forgeries, an admitted addition to the ancient MSS (manuscripts). The fact was discovered by the first translator of the Bible into English and they made a marginal note in their version of the Bible which continued for some time. But we do not find the said note in any of the copies now published by the said society(Foreign Mission Society). Is it fair and honest to keep others in darkness as to the true value of the contents of the Bible? The reader must know thatconcluding portion of St. Mark and the verse in St. Matthew are spurious and a subsequent addition. But I am afraid the Foreign Mission would not allow the correction. It would tell against their very Mission, if they eliminate the verse from St. Matthew; they lose the only pillar that supports the structure of the Trinity. No other verse in the whole Scripture speaks of it. The said eleven verses of St. Mark are the only justification for the existence of the Foreign Mission. You, as well as I, know, my Lord, that the call to Jesus came solely and wholly from Judaism. He came only to gather the scattered sheep and would not give the children’s bread to the dogs, the world beyond the Israelites. The Foreign Mission is a mere trespass on lands forbidden by the Master. It transcends the limit marked by Jesus.Throughout his life the Gentiles and others did not concern him: they were the swine. Then came the make-believe Resurrection, and they say the Master changed his mind as to his mission and ordered it to be carried to the four corners of the world (indicating that he was unsure of his mission), but this all depends upon the questionable verses of St. Mark, and hence their retention in the Bible. St. Matthew is no authority on this point. The word “nations” there is a mistranslation and a wrong substitute for “the tribes”–the rest of the Jewish tribes scattered all over the world. This being the case, the Mission cannot afford to eliminate the verses from their version, nor will they put marginal notes, as did the old versions, to show the true nature of the verses.A It would weaken the cause and show the futility of their status, since in carrying on evangelical work in the non-Christian world (in the non-Jewish world, the Bible/Christ is only for Jews) B they are acting against the express admonition of the Master. It may that reasons other than religion are at the back of it all, and goading their activities, but decency, if not religion, assuredly demands the publishing of things as they are.”12
Even if Jesus had said to teach the Gospels to all nations, 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/Eve. These cardinal doctrines of CHRISTIANITY are lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. (See CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE).
9. Jehovah’s Witnesses state after the war of “Armageddon” that the in the new earth there will be “wolves and lambs, lions and calves, feeding together” –and the domestic animals are totally safe.”(which statement is based on Isaiah 11:6-8).13
Response: Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christians) depict heaven as a picturesque landscape of people laxing, and reading, with the lamb and wolf nesting together.
Isaiah 11:6-7 states that “the wolf also shall dwell with the lamb…and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.” This must be a cruel joke on the lions or they would have to be outfitted with dentures of incisors and molars for stripping and grinding hay, and have their systems redesigned to process and evacuate hay.
(Surely, if the people and the animals are of material forms they would need to eat. Allāh tells us that in the Hereafter we will be given new forms–Qur’an 56:60-61).
In other words, the Christian’s heaven is B-O-R-I-N-G. Small wonder the Christian is obsessed with Mohammad’s “particularly active sex life,” and the gardens of “virgins” and fruits and plush couches and vessels of silver etc; that Muslims will have. The Christian is jealous to boot.
(A survey should be done among Christians –male and female– to find out how many prefer to lax in heaven reading past-time stories and watching lions stripping hay instead of being in the Muslim Paradise of joys beyond human comprehension, lounging on couches of velvet savoring “wine” from goblets of gold and silver and enjoying “an eternity” of “sex.” And don’t forget the priests). (See HEAVEN/PARADISE).
10. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Those who willfully sinned against God’s holy spirit, or active force, by unrepentantly acting contrary to its manifestation or leadings will not be resurrected.” (Matthew 23:15, 33; Hebrews 6:4-6).14
Answer: Probably the main point of the resurrection is to give the sinners the opportunity to defend themselves. Even human governments give the accused, and even the ones that confess to the crime, the opportunity to offer a defense.
That all will be resurrected is stated by the Bible itself: “And it is appointed unto men ONCE to die, but after this the JUDGMENT” –(Hebrews 9:27).
And the resurrection precedes judgment which is for ALL men. “And I saw the dead, SMALL AND GREAT stand before God…and the DEAD were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their WORKS…And the sea gave up the dead…and death and hell delivered up the dead …and they were judged EVERY MAN according to their WORKS”–(Revelation 20:12-13).
At the Judgment the prophets will testify that they delivered God’s message to their people and the people will be given the opportunity to explain their rejection of God or other sin(s): (Even a stone will bear witness to their actions–Genesis 31:48; Joshua 24:27).
That even “Those who willfully sinned against God’s holy spirit, or active force, by unrepentantly acting contrary to its manifestation or leadings” will be resurrected is evidenced by Jesus himself: “Many will say to me in that day (of Judgment),Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU; DEPART FROM ME, YE THAT WORK INIQUITY”–(Matt. 7:22-23).
This statement of Jesus is reflected in the Qur’an 5:116-117:“And when Allāh will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allāh? He will say: Glory be to Thee! It was not for me to say what I had no right to say…I said to them naught save as Thou didst command me: Serve Allāh, my Lord and your Lord (comp. Mark 12:29); and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when Thou didst cause me to die Thou wast the Watcher over them. And Thou art witness of all things.”
And the worst of iniquities is to tell a lie or lies against God. And Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– is lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. And Jesus warns the blasphemers:
“But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVER forgiveness, but is in danger of ETERNAL damnation”–(Mark 3:29; and “damnation” means “send-ing to hell, eternal punishment”–(The Oxford Paperback Thesaurus).
“fear him which is able to destroy BOTH soul and body in hell;” the “EVERLASTING fire” that “NEVER SHALL BE QUENCHED;” the “furnace of fire” in which there shall be “wailing and gnashing of teeth” –(Matt. 10:28; 18:8; Mark 9:43; Matt. 23:14, 33; 13:42. Those who do not have teeth shall bear it on their gums). (Notably, the soul is not “immortal;” only that man cannot destroy it. Allāh God, is the Creator and Vanquisher of all).
As noted above Revelation 20:13 states: “And the sea gave up the dead…and death and hell delivered up the dead …and they were judged EVERY MAN according to their WORKS.” Revelation 20:14 states that after this judgment that “death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
But as shown above, Hebrews 9:27 states that “it is appointed unto men ONCE to die;” NOT twice.
If sinners will be given a “second death” this would be a contradiction not only of Hebrews 9:27 that man would die ONCE, but also a contradiction of God’s decree through Adam that the day Adam sins he would “die;” God did not say that Adam would be given another chance at righteousness and if he failed he would be subjected to a “second death”–(Genesis 2:17). (For more on Adam and the “wages of sin” see CHRISTIANITY-MAN MADE TO LIVE FOREVER)
Moreover, “death” is not a physical item that can be “cast” into a thing.(a “lake of fire”).
Yet again, Jesus, who is regarded as son of God and even as God, says that certain people will go into “eternal damnation” (or eternal punishment); which saying of Jesus contradicts this “second death,” for death is a state of non-feel-ingness, and eternal punishment 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?”
In Islam HELL is not a “torture” chamber. Hell is a purifying process. And Hell is not forever.
(This “eternal punishment” of Christianity shows that the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christian’s God “tortures” people. And for all eternity).
11. While “Those who willfully sinned against God’s holy spirit, or active force, by unrepentantly acting contrary to its manifestation or leadings will not be resurrected,” as Jehovah’s Witnesses say (noted in the above); Jehovah’s Witnesses say that “two distinct groups will be resurrected –the righteous and the unrighteous.”(Acts 24:15)And (while Satan is “bound up” in a “bottomless pit”) Christ would reign for a thousand years in which “all sin will be removed and mankind will be raised to perfection.–1John 2:2; Revelation 21:1-4). And after this thousand-year reign by Jesus, “Perfect humans will face one final test. At the end of the Millennium, Satan and his demons will be released from the abyss for a short time and will be permitted to make a final effort to turn people away from Jeho-vah.”14A
Response: As highlighted, Acts 24:15 are PAUL’S words NOT God’s or Jesus’. And 1 John is the writing of PAUL, and Revelation is a vision from an angel given to John.
Aside from Paul’s “judgment” for what the Book of Revelation is worth, this entire scene is rubbish. Debunked by Jesus himself who said that theresurrected “are as the angels” meaning they are as spirits (they are spiritualized); they do not have flesh and bones–(Matt. 22:23-30. Luke 20:34-36). Thus, these resurrected are not “humans” perfect or otherwise.
Moreover. Why does the righteous have to come back to earth? What happened to the place that Jesus said he was going to prepare for his people in his Father’s mansion and coming back to those whom he said will not die till he return?:“In my Father’s house are many mansions…I go to prepare a place for you. And ifI go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;” “There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom’–(John 14:2-3; Matt.16:28). Those poor Jews must still be standing there for 2,000 years now waiting (and will keep on standing and waiting for God knows how much longer) for Jesus to return. (See JESUS-SECOND COMING).
Paul was self-admitted liar who forged his own gospel; caught people through craft and guile, was not certain if he had the spirit of God with him; condemned the law of works that Jesus vowed to uphold and the Divine eternal covenant of circumcision; and grafted paganism unto Jesus’ head. (After all this un-Godliness he yet expects to have the Spirit of God with him. This is hilarious!) (See ALLĀH & JESUS OR PAUL)
(For a comment on the Book of Revelation see ARMAGEDDON-GOG & MAGOG).
12. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “The divine name, Jehovah, was of utmost importance to Jesus.”15
Response: Whereas God says His name is “I AM,” and “Jealous”–(Exodus 3:14; 34:14, respectively), Jehovah is not a scriptural name: Jehovah is a manipulation of letters –the Jewish YHWH. Jesus was a Jew. He spoke Hebrew or Aramaic. And he cried from the cross to “Eli!”–(Matt. 27:46). Thus, the name “Jehovah” was alien to Jesus.
If Jehovah’s Witnesses want to represent Jesus and propagate truth as they seem to be professing they must use the name Jesus used. Anything else under God’s and Jesus’ name is falsehood. And misleading.
While Islam teaches that Allāh. God, raised messengers/prophets among all people, and thus God is known by a name according to the languages of the people, Jehovah’s Witnesses argument (as one tried to put pass me) that just as how a person’s name is spelt/pronounced differently in other language(s), likewise God’s name, Yahweh, is pronounced Jehovah, is a goat’s argument.
Whereas a mortal’s name can be articulated in an equivalent in another language His Highest Majesty’s name is to be articulated according to His revelation. His Holy Majesty’s name is not to be mutilated/adulterated to suit one’s vanity.
Moreover, even if Jehovah’s Witnesses were to refer to God as Yehowah or as Yahuwa or variations beginning with “Y” this would not be certain; as no one seems to know the correct articulation for YHWH.
Thus, the pious act would be for Jehovah’s Witnesses to address God as Jesus did, as “Eli.” (Though this would not save them from Hell, for their following and teaching lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. See CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE).
13. Regarding Jesus’ alleged crucifixion, Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “So great is God’s love for the human family that he gave his most precious Son in order that faithful humans might be freed from the grip of sin and death and have the prospect of everlasting life. We cannot begin to measure the breadth or plumb the depth of such a great love.”16
Response: “faithful humans might be freed”? It is not certain?
Whether to free sinners or not, to have an innocent man killed, such an act could hardly be touted as a measure of “great love.” But is instead, a “measure” of gross and grave injustice. A monumental and grotesque obscenity.
It is rather confounding that God has a “son” seeing that “God” says Jesus is only CALLED son of God:
“The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee (Mary)…
the holy thing which shall be born of thee
shall be CALLED the Son of God”
And God has a legion of sons and daughters; see JESUS–SON OF GOD). And moreover “son of God is a figurative expression: “the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David….I will be HIS FATHER, and he shall be MY SON”–(2 Samuel 7:4, 5,14). It must h be the miracle of all miracles that
The METAPHORICAL son (Jesus)
cannot die for LITERAL sin.
It is rather strange for Jesus who came to die willingly for the sins of the world to tell his disciples that “they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ”–(Matt. 16:20); for him to hide from his executioners–(John 11:54); to rebuke the Jews “why go ye about to kill me?”–(John 7:19); and to pray with great drops of sweat to God to be spared from this “noble” death–(Matt. 26:39); and to blaspheme: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me,” (such ignominious and blasphemous words do not befit Divine lips –whether God or Son of God)–(Matt. 27:46).
If Jesus had come to die for the sins of mankind, he should have come forward joyously into the hands of his executors; and Judas, the “betrayer”, should be blessed and not cursed; and the Jews should not be blamed but praised for fulfilling the prophecy of “crucifying” Jesus. Neither should Jesus have prayed: “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”–(Luke 23:34). There was no need to “forgive them” if they were fulfilling Scripture.
That Jesus was sought by Jews to be killed because of his condemnation of Jewish authorities and NOT for fulfilling scripture is noted by Biblical scholars. The ‘Bible Dictionary’ notes as part of its explanation of the term ‘scribe’:
“Their familiarity with the law allowed the scribes to take on a role of growing importance in Jewish society –teaching in the synagogues, serving as judges, and becoming members of the Sanhedrin. Jesus refused to accept the mass of detail and the superficial technicalities which they affixed to the law, and He accused them of hypocritical interpretations of the law. For these reasons they opposed His teachings and were one of the groups, as were the Pharisees, that helped to plot His death–(Matt. 5:20; 21:15; Mark 10:33; 14:53; Luke 11:44; 20:46; John 8:3; Acts 4:5; 6:12).”16A
There is NO inherited sin.
NO vicarious atonement.
NO “ransom” for sin.
Sin is not a physical factor or a biological/genetic factor, as some diseases are, that can be transmitted from one person to another. Sin is a defect in the spirit acquired through committing an unGodly act. While a baking pan that has fallen (like Adam falling from grace) would produce loaves reflecting this dent, this dent would not alter the composition or taste of the loaves. Your father being a millionaire does not make you a millionaire.
If sin is a voluntary transgression of a known law of God by a morally responsible person, where is the voluntary transgression of the new-born babe for sin to be loaded onto his and her head?
There is no “inherited sin.” It is not grace” to kill the sinless for the sinful: it is dis-“grace.”
Contrary to Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) claim that heaven lies in following Christ, Jesus himself declared that, except for his mission to minister to the Jews, JESUS IS REDUNDANT! NO ONE NEEDS JESUS! 16B
-Jesus told his people to follow the scribes and Pharisees; that eternal life lies keeping the Commandments brought by Moses; and in righteousness–(Matthew 23:2-3; 19:17-18; 5:20). Since following the Mosaic law is what is required to get into heaven THERE IS NO NEED FOR JESUS.
-Jesus says that another Comforter will come with “all truth” and will abide with them “forever”–(John 14:16; 16:13). Since the COMFORTER will replace the Mosaic law because he will guide into “ALL TRUTH” and would abide “FOREVER,” THERE IS NO NEED FOR JESUS.
And if we follow the Comforter and attain eternal life in Paradise THERE IS NO NEED FOR THE (alleged) SECOND COMINGOF 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 “ANOTHER 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; and NO NEED FOR JESUS!
As stated, Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– is lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. Jesus, as he clearly taught, was sent by God ONLY FOR JEWS, and to emphasize adherence to the Mosaic Law and foretell the coming of the COMFORTER who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide for ever” and which mission he fulfilled. All else wrapped around Jesus are alien accoutrements. (See JESUS-REDUNDANT NO RANSOM).
If Jesus came to die for the sins of the world and for him to pray to be spared this ”glory” and to blaspheme that God had “forsaken” him (which is tantamount to disbelief in God), this must be the blackest degree of disgrace ever exampled by a “Son of God” in scriptural history. (If Jesus is God then God prayed to Himself and “forsaken” Himself–(Matt. 26:38-42; 27:46).
14. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Jesus taught that Jehovah responds in a fatherly way to the prayers of His servants, answering their sincere requests made in faith–Matthew 7:7-11.”17
Response: But according to Christians God did NOT answer Jesus’ prayers to be spared from death on the cross–(Matt. 26:36-44): God had him killed instead. Which would seem to say, according to Jehovah’s Witnesses, that Jesus was not “sincere” in his “request.” Or that God was not acting in a “fatherly way to the prayers” of Jesus.
In fact, according to Jesus God had forsaken him: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me,” (such ignominious and blasphemous words do not befit Divine lips –whether God or Son of God)–(Matt. 27:46).
Yet Paul says Jesus’ prayers were answered–(Heb. 5:7. One is not glorified by being killed; and God does not need to have anyone killed in order to be glorified–John 17:1; if He does then for the thousands of years before Christ He was not glorified because as far as Scriptures go He did not require anyone to be killed).
And the Bible says prayers of the righteous are always ans-wered–(James 5:16; Psalm 22:24; 34:15-19; John 9:31; Matt; 7:8-9); and that God always answered Jesus’ prayers–(John 11:41-42).
As stated. That God “gave” Jesus to be “crucified” for sinners and for Jesus 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.
Vicarious atonement is unjust, illogical, and unGodly. The God that takes the life of the sinless for the sinners could not be praised as wise, just, or loving. Such a God is not worthy of honor.
As already noted, inherited sin and vicarious atonement (as well as Trinity) were invented by Christians and the doctrine of son of God (which Allāh says is paganism–Qur’an 9:30 and which research has confirmed) was introduced into the religion of Christ by Paul17A (Jesus is just a figurehead in the Church).
Thus, those who follow these doctrines are not “Christians” but rather Churchians or Paulians and their religion is Churchianity or Paulianity.
15. Regarding the “little flock” that will be with Jesus judging the Twelve Tribes of Israel, Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “The last Book of the Bible shows that there will be a total of 144,000 who will have the privilege of ruling with Christ.”18
Response: What Jehovah’s Witnesses did not mention is that this 144,000 will NOT be Gentiles. They will be JEWS (because Jesus was sent ONLY FOR JEWS); and these 144,000 JEWS will be made up of twelve thousand from each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and these would all be MEN and VIRGINS. Here are the verses:
“and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of ALL THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand ……Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.”
“…but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which were NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN; for they are VIRGINS….These were redeemed from among MEN being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb”–(Revelation 7:4-8; 14:3-4. Men “defiled” by women? This must be the “mother” of all misogyny. See CHRISTIANITY-WOMEN OF).
Jesus would NOT be ruling the world, the Bible clearly states that:
-Out of Bethlehem “shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people ISRAEL”–(Matt. 2:6. The people of “Israel” is not the whole world).
-Jesus “shall save HIS people”–(Matt. 1:21. And Jesus’ people are the JEWS)
– “He (Jesus) shall reign over the house of JACOB for ever”–(Luke 1:33. The “house of Jacob” is NOT the whole world).
Jesus was so tribally Jewish he regarded non-Jews as “dogs” and “swine” and even preached in parables so the “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved (in contrast to Mohammad who gave the Message of Allāh, God, to all, and clearly, and even prayed for his dead enemy). (See JESUS-ONLY FOR JEWS).
That after his make-believe resurrection Jesus says to preach to the world, these verses of Matthew and Mark, as shown in item #7, are “forgeries” in the BIBLE).
Regarding the 144,000 who will be with Jesus, one party on the Internet try to make these literal “VIRGINS” into metaphorical ones. These 144, 000 MEN are said to be the ones who remained “faithful to Jesus” by being celibates/”virgins” as Jesus was, as the Gospels say.
That these are literal “virgins” “not defiled” by literal “women” is substantiated by the Bible. Jesus says in Matthew 5:32 that whoever marries a woman that is divorced for other than fornication “commits adultery.” Thus, woman here, even though she be married to the man “defiles” the man into an adulterer.
Paul makes the matter clearer, he states that, but for avoiding “fornication,” “It is GOOD for a man NOT to touch a woman.” Why not? Because, as Paul says, “He that is UNMARRIED careth for the things that belong to the LORD, how he may please the LORD: But he that is MARRIED careth for the things that are of the WORLD, how he may please his WIFE”–(1 Cor. 7:32-33). In other words, when a man takes a wife his caring for God is com-promised by his caring for his wife –or she “defiles” him or causes him to be “defiled.”
Further, Paul declares that as the wife has no power over her own body but the husband has power over her: “likewise also the husband hath NOT POWER of his own body, but the WIFE (has power of him)”–(1 Cor. 7:4).
These Biblical teachings show that sexual contact with a woman “defiles” the man spiritually; and no amount of literary gymnastics can flip this fact over.
These 144,000 “virgins” are physical “virgins” who were “not defiled” by physical “women,” and as they were not married, and therefore had no “wifely” con-straints, they devoted their entire life to the pursuit of the spiritual and were the true followers of Jesus who, as the Gospels show, lived a life of celibacy. The Good News Bible understands this and states: “The 144,000 people stood before the throne…They are the men who have kept themselves pure by NOT having SEXUAL RELATIONS with WOMEN; they are VIRGINS.”
The Gideons Bible concur: “These are the ones who have not been DEFILED WITH WOMEN, for they are CELIBATES.”
16. Jehovah’s Witnesses state: “True happiness can be found only if we take steps to fill our greatest need–our hunger for spiritual truth about God and his purpose for us. That truth is found in the Bible.”19
Response: While it is true that one should not neglect spiritual truth. Where are these “truth”s in the Bible that Jesus is God, one in Trinity with God, mankind inherited sin from Adam and Jesus is vicarious atoner? And these cardinal doctrines of Christianity are expected to be clearly stated.
While there are some truths in the Bible the Christian’s tea-chings of Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin and vicarious atone-ment are lies, falsehood, and blasphemy that lead into Hell which, as Jesus says is a “furnace of fire,” an “everlasting fire” that “never shall be quenched” and in which there will be “wailing and gnashing of teeth”–(Matt. 23:14, 33; 18:8; 13:42; Mark 9:43).(See JESUS–SOUL & HELL).
17. Regarding Jesus’ claim to be “son of God,”–(John 10:36). Jehovah’s Witnesses state: “The most reliable testimony came from God himself. He twice said concerning Jesus: “This is my Son.” (Matthew 3:17; 17:5) Just think! The Scriptures report only a few occasions when God’s own voice was heard on earth –yet on two of them he affirmed Jesus as His son! This is by far the best proof that Jesus was who he said he was.”20
Response: But according to Jesus “himself” (and even accord-ing to God as some Christians claim Jesus to be God) God was never seen and His voice was never heard: “And the father himself which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have NEITHER HEARD HIS VOICE AT ANY TIME, NOR SEEN HIS SHAPE” –(John 5:37. Notably, the father sent all prophets).
Considering that this declaration of Jesus was made AFTER Matthew 3:17 where this “voice” was first heard (at Jesus’ baptism), according to the Gospel Jesus –this Christians’ son of God and God– was either lying or lacking in knowledge or the “voice” was not God’s.
Since as Jesus said that God’s voice was NEVER HEARD, to whom then did this “heavenly” voice belong? In his dedication to drive man astray from God could this “voice” have been Satan’s? Considering that for two thousand years Christians are mired in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion about Jesus and his mission.
It is confounding that God would say Jesus is His son when He declared that Jesus is only “CALLED” son of God. Clearly, Jehovah’s Witnesses (and Christians) are reading more into “Son of God” than God revealed.
Jesus could have been living for 100 billion “eons” in heaven and helping God create every jot in all the worlds before God sent him to earth; and God could have sent 50 Holy Ghosts with the special seed of Jesus to plant into Mary; and Jesus could have performed all the miracles in all these worlds and made all the prophecies since creation and done everything else that Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) tinsel onto him; yet these do not make Jesus Divine or vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin from Adam/Eve. Jehovah’s Witnesses (and all Christians) have yet to show where in the Bible GOD says mankind inherited sin from Adam. The Everlasting truth is: Jesus was a MUSLIM –one who submits to the will of God or is obedient to the law of God– and he taught ISLAM–submission to the will or law of God.
Incidentally, Whereas “Muslims” and “Islam” are Divine designations in the Qur’an (5:3; 22:78), “Christians” and “Christianity” are human fabrications. Initially, Jesus’ followers were known as Nazarenes, after Nazareth the homeplace of Jesus.
18. Jehovah’s Witnesses pained to convince readers that the Gospels are the “inspired” word of God.
But this is pathetic if not deceptive. Considering that Jehovah’s Witnesses admit that both the Old Testament and Gospels have been “tampered with” and that Christian sources at one time estimated that there were “at least 20,000 errors” in the New Testament. The Bible itself conveys that it has been falsified: “How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES HAS MADE IT INTO A LIE”–(Jeremiah 8:8. New American Standard Bible, 1985 edition). (See BIBLE for a full account of this topic).
Did God “inspire” these errors? And if these errors later crept into the Bible it cannot be claimed that the Bible is “all” word of God. And how many errors are there yet in the Bible? And if some of these errors have been corrected who gave permission to correct them? And how do you know these “corrections” are correct?
In any event even if the Gospels are the “inspired” word of God yet this does not make Jesus God or son of God (as Christians portray him) or vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin. As stated these cardinal doctrines of Christianity have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation and are repugnant to reason; Christianity is evil, intolerant, backward, naked hate, and brutal and rabid misogyny; Christianity is lies, falsehood, and blasphemy; Christians lie on God they lie on Jesus they blame the Devil; and the Gospels portray Jesus as liar, hypocrite, and fraud. (See CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE).
Interestingly, Jehovah’s Witnesses take their teachings from the “Christian Greek Scriptures.” But Jesus Christ was not Greek and he did not speak Greek. Jesus Christ was a Jew who spoke either Hebrew or Aramaic or probably both. Where are Jesus’ teachings in his native language?
19. In response to a reader’s query: “Is Jesus the Archangel Michael?”
Jehovah’s Witnesses, trying to fit Jesus into the mould of the “Archangel” Michael quoted (more like strained at) verses of various books of the Bible –Genesis 35:10 where Jacob is named Israel; Matthew 10:2; 16:16; John 1:42; Acts 15:7, 14 where Peter has five different names; Daniel 10:13, 21; 12:1; where Daniel has various names, etc; Rev; 12:7 which notes Michael as fighting a war (Jesus, the Lamb and prince of peace, fighting a war? Astonishing!); and Jude verse 9– and concludes: “The only other verse in which an archangel is mentioned is at Thessalonians 4:16, where Paul describes the resurrected Jesus, saying: “The Lord [Jesus] himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call. With an archangel’s voice and with God’s trum-pet.” So Jesus Christ himself is here identified as the archangel, or chief angel.””21
Response: NO! Jesus is not “here identified as the archangel, or chief angel.”” All the verse says is that he will have an archangel’s “VOICE,” NOT that he is or will be an archangel.
So Jesus is God, son of God, vicarious atoner, prophet like Moses and now “Archangel Michael.” Who will Jesus be next –Nostradamus? And why not, Nostradamus is said to have made accurate prophecies.
And if Jesus is the “Archangel Michael” so what? This does not make him God, son of God, part of a Trinity, vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin.
20. Commenting on Jesus’ saying to Peter to forgive “Up to seventy-seven times” (Matthew 18:21, 22),” Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “he (Jesus) was saying that there is no arbitrary limit on forgiveness.”22
Response: Yet according to Christians God have “an arbitrary limit” to forgiveness, by requiring the blood of (and of an innocent) man in order to forgive sinners.
And even in the face of his grand precept of ‘limitless’ forgiveness this Christian’s son of God and God ordered that his opposers be brought and slain: “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and SLAY THEM BEFORE ME”–(Luke 19:27. Contrast this to Mohammad who upon his victory at Makkah forgave his rabid enemies of twenty grueling years and left the princes on their thrones).
And even in the face of his grand precept of ‘limitless’ forgiveness this Christian’s son of God and God:
● give David’s wives to his neighbor to be sexually violated because of David’s adultery–(2 Samuel 12:7-11);
● have bears tear children for teasing a man about his bald head–(2 Kings 2:22-24);
● kill the non-virgin women and male children of His people’s opponents and take their little virgin girls as war booty–(Num-bers 31: 1-53);
● have priests burn their daughters for being a “whore”–(Leviticus 21:9);
● slay “woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass”–(1 Samuel 15:2-3);
● slaughter pregnant women and impale thefetus–(Isaiah13:15, 18; Hosea 13:16);
● say that His devotees will be “happy” because they dashed the “little ones” of their enemies “against the stones” and “ravished” the “wives” of their enemies–(Psalm 137:9; Isaiah 13:16);
● sell children into slavery–(Joel 3:8);
● terrorize, slay, poison and feed worshippers of false gods to beasts: “They (Jeshurun and his children) have moved me (God) to jealousy with that which is not God…I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them…I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs”–(Deut. 32: 15-25
● dismember the wife who tried to defend her husband by grab-bing the testicles of her husband’s opponent will lose her hand–(Deuteronomy 25:11-12);
● stone to death blasphemers, apostates, married damsel without the “token of virginity,” and the virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed,” stubborn and rebellious sons, and the adulteress–(Lev. 24:11-16, 23; Deut; 13:5-16; 17:2-5; 22:20-21; 22:23-24; 21:18-21; John 8:3-5);
● kill the witch, curser of parent, adulterer, homosexuals, and the man who commits bestiality–(Ex. 22:18; Lev. 20:9; 10-12; Deut. 22:22; Lev. 20:13; 15-16);
● burn both the man who takes a “wife and her mother”–(Lev. 20:14);
If this is “no arbitrary limit on forgiveness” imagine then the consequences if there was “arbitrary limit on forgiveness.”
21. Jehovah’s Witnesses claim: “Everything that God wants us to know about his Son is right there in the Bible–a record we can count on.”23
Response: Why then are you teaching inherited sin and vicarious atonement? These are NOT in the Bible! And Jesus is only CALLED SON OF GOD; and the Bible is pregnant with sons and daughters of God. (And Jesus is not GOD; only the name Immanuel is “interpreted” to mean God with us). These cardinal doctrines of Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– are assumed and propagated as Divine truths.
And if everything God wants you to know about his son is in the Bible, are you saying that God did not want you to know where His son was for eighteen years –from the age of 12-30? (See JESUS-18 MISSING YEARS).
22. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “God took the life of his Son in heaven and put it inside Mary. Then that life grew inside her just as other babies do inside their mothers.”24
Response: (Never mind the obvious question: how did God transport this life into Jesus)
Where in the Bible did God say He “took the life of his Son in heaven and put it inside Mary”? Why are you Jehovah’s Witnesses saying and teaching that which you have no Divine Authority?
Since God took the life of His son in heaven and put it “inside Mary” on earth then His son in heaven became lifeless (dead). Or Christians must have two sons of God, one in heaven and one on earth. (God taking the “life” of Jesus and putting it “inside Mary” is not the same as cloning. In cloning it is not the life of the “life” of the specie that is used, but a cell).
There was no “virgin” birth. Jesus is the Messiah. And the Messiah was prophesied to come from the house of David. But Mary was of the House of Levi. Thus, if Jesus was of “virgin” birth he could not be of the House of David. And if Jesus was the Messiah he could not be of “virgin” birth; there had to be someone from the House of David to join with Mary so Jesus could be the Messiah. (Virgin birth of Jesus is a FORGERY in the Bible. See JESUS-NO VIRGIN BIRTH).
Paul, who knows more than Christians, states that Jesus had a human father:
(a) “Therefore (David) being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the FRUIT OF HIS LOINS, ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne”–(Acts 2:30);
(b) “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ…which was made of the SEED OF DAVID ACCORDING TO THE FLESH” –(Romans 1:3);
(c) “Remember that Jesus Christ of the SEED OF DAVID”–(2 Timothy 2:8).
And “seed” is sperm, and “according to the flesh” is male-female union: sexual intercourse.
23. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “The night before he died, Jesus asked Jehovah if He would change His mind regarding what He wanted him to do (i.e. to spare Jesus from being killed) Luke 22:42). But Jesus obeyed God even though it was not easy. The Bible says that “he learned obedience from the things he suffered.” (Hebrews 5:8).25
Response: God and Son of God need to suffer to learn “obedience”???
That “Jesus obeyed God.” To charge God as having “forsaken” him can hardly be viewed as being ‘obedient’: “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?”–(Matt. 27:46); this is not “obedience,” this is impudence.
That Jesus “learned obedience from the things he suffered.” Christians say that God/son of God needs to eat butter and honey so that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”–(Isaiah 7:14-15). Now they say God/son of God has to suffer in order to learn “obedience.” Wonder what Christians will concoct next about their God/son of God.
If eating butter and honey makes one “know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.” Then, instead of spending mega-millions to house and reform criminals, all governments would need to do is overwhelm the criminals (and perhaps themselves) with a diet of “butter and honey.” And children should be given daily doses of “butter and honey” from kindergarten to ensure a crime free society. Man surely would have snared the elusive Utopia!
24. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Jesus was called God’s “only-begotten Son” because Jehovah created him directly.”26
Response: Where in the Bible did God say that He created Jesus directly? And how did God transport this seed into Mary for her to “conceive”?: “for that which is CONCEIVED in her;” “thou shalt CONCEIVE in thy womb” –(Matt. 1:20; Luke 1:31).
“Begotten” –from the word “begat” Matt. 1:1-16, listing the generations of Jesus– means “sire” (“procreate”) not ‘create directly.’ “Conception” requires the union of sperm and ovum.
Jesus was not the “only begotten Son.” David also is “begotten son” of God. Jesus was not the only one created “directly” by God; Adam was created “directly” by God; Melchisedec was created “directly” by God. In this respect of creation, Melchisedec is even greater than Jesus –Melchisedec had neither mother nor father nor beginning nor end–(Heb. 7:1-3).
In fact, even John the Baptist was greater than Jesus, as Jesus himself declared: “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist”–(Matt. 11:11). Jesus also was born of a woman! The Bible is pregnant with sons and daughters of God (see JESUS-SON OF GOD).
Moreover, Jesus was not created “directly,” Jesus, as Paul taught and shown above, had a human father (see JESUS-NO VIRGIN BIRTH).
If Jesus is son of God because “Jehovah created him directly,” animals cloned –“created directly”– by scientists must be of “Virgin” births, and thus, sons and daughters of the scientists (?).
If Jesus is “only begotten son” because “Jehovah created him directly” why and how is David termed “begotten son” of God–(Psalm 2:7)? God must have created David directly also; but David was already an adult when he became God’s “begotten son.”
Even if Jesus was the “sole direct creation of God” this does not make him Son of God, or God, or one in Trinity with God, or vicarious atoner, or that mankind inherited sin from Adam. As stated elsewhere these doctrines have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation, and are repugnant to reason.
If Jesus is son of God only because God “created him directly” this would make the expression “son of God” a metaphor (and which the Biblical expression is). Thus, Jesus would be a metaphorical “son of God.” And it would be
Quite a feat for a
metaphorical son of God
to die for literal sins.
Rather than follow the Divine light –there is no God but Allāh, Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh; and Jesus was only a messenger of Allāh sent to the Jews– Christians prefer to remain shrouded in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion and to concoct one crock to prop up the other crock.
25. Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Everything Jesus did while on earth is exactly what Jehovah would have done.”27
-God would have a woman kiss His feet–(Luke 7:37-38)
-God would curse a blameless and helpless fig tree–(Mark 11:12-21)
-God would cater to devils and load them into dumb, innocent swine and caused the swine to drown–(Matt. 8:28-33; Mark 5:13)
-God would project Himself as a glutton and wine-bibber–(Luke 7:34. While it may be necessary that one be among the sinful to reform them, to indulge in their ignoble practice(s) as enticement is irresponsible. The unGodly is to engaged in wisdom, reason, argument, and example, as Islam teaches–Qur’-an 16:125)
–God would send FIRE on the earth–(Luke 12:49)
–God would give DIVISION on earth–(Luke 12:51-53
–God would send a SWORD on earth–(Matt. 10:34)
–God would require people to hate their family–(Luke 14:26)
-God would castigate people as those of Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum–(Matt. 11:20-24)
-God would ridicule people as “generation of vipers;” “evil and adulterous generation;” as “fools” and “blind guides”–(Matthew. 12:34, 39; 23:16-17, 24)
-God would have people disown their mothers–(Matt. 19:19; 12:46-50)
-God would refer to other people as “dogs” and “swine” and preach in parables so they would not understand to keep them out of heaven (which is naked hate)–(Matt. 7:6; 15:26; Mark 4:9-12)
-God would view those who are not with Him as being against you (and a person can be neutral)–(Matthew 12:30)
-God would order that His enemies who are against His rule be slaughtered (even though they may not militate against you)–(Luke 19:27)
-God would counsel His devotees to lie/deceive: “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); which injunction of gives Christians a hole so big to accommodate every 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)
–God would teach absurd doctrines:
-God would tell people to “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–(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.
-God would tell people to not work He will send them food and drink: “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 Him to send him groceries through handouts, God would be 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.
Not even Christians follow this teaching; they having millions and living in affluence. Not even the Pope, the Vicar of Christ, follow this: the Vatican having billions in assets.
-God would empower His followers: “whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained”–(John 20:23).
Thus, mass murderers who may be Christians can be forgiven by men –Hitler and his SS Officers may already be sitting with Jesus “on the right hand of God.”
What if a Protestant priest should not forgive but if the criminal converts to Catholicism and is forgiven, whose office will be honored, Protestant or Catholic?
-God would preach that the “meek” –those who bear suffering with patience– (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.
-God would be hypocritical:
-God would tell people to give the other cheek but would exhorts His devotees to sell their coats and buy swords–(Matt. 5:39; Luke 22:36)
-God would tell people to go another mile with their compeller but would boot His compellers–(Matt. 5:41; 21:12)
-God would tell people to leave the dead to bury the dead but would rush off to resurrect those of His choice–(Matt. 8:22; John 11:43-44; Luke 7:12-15; 8:41-42, 51-55).
-God would tell people to pray for enemies but would order that His enemies be slain–(Luke 9:27)
–God would tell others to love their neighbor, but would labels non-Jews “dogs” and “swine”–(Matt. 22:39; 7:6)
–God would tell others to bless them that curse you, but would ridicule people as “vipers” and an “evil and adulterous generation”–(Matt. 5:44; 12:34, 39)
–God would tell others to love their enemies and to forgive seventy-times seven, but would order that His enemies be slain–(Matt. 5:44; 18:21-22; Luke 19:27)
-God would tell others to pray for them that despise you and persecute you, but would upbraid people for not accepting His miracles and reforming–(Matt. 5:44; 11:20-24); and instead of praying for people He would ridicule them as “generation of vipers;” “evil and adulterous generation;” as “fools” and “blind guides”–(Matt. 12: 34, 39; 23:16-17, 24)
-God would tell His devotees He sends them “as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves,” but would take off for another place when He finds out the “wolves” are plotting to kill him (though He has power to lay down his life and take it up again)–(Matt. 10:16. John 11:53-54).
(Jehovah’s Witnesses invent blasphemous teachings to impress unthinking people into eating the body and drinking the mythical blood of Jesus Christ –spiritual cannibalism– and they expect to sit “on the right hand of God”).
26. Jehovah’s Witnesses state: “God would never give a fraud power to perform miracles.”28
Response: As Jesus taught, frauds do not need power from God to perform miracles, false Christs and false prophets can perform miracles–(Matt. 24:24. That there is no evidence of any false Christs and false prophets performing miracles is irrelevant, Jesus, your son of God, and even God to some, says they can do so).
As Christians consider Mohammad a “fraud” and as Mohammad performed miracles and brought the greatest miracle –the Qur’an– then according to Christians, Allāh is not God; in which event this false God of this “fraud” has greater powers than the Christians’ God, for, Mohammad brought us a Book superior to the Bible in every facet of life.
I have had the odd Jehovah’s Witnesses tell me that Mohammad was a fraud/impostor. I would invite them to the challenge that if you can prove that Mohammad was a fraud/impostor I will become a Christian on the spot no questions asked, no ifs ands or buts. But if you cannot prove Mohammad was a fraud –and for sure you cannot prove Mohammad was a fraud– then you will become a Muslim on the spot no questions asked, no ifs ands or buts. Put your dignity where your mouth is! So far I have had no takers. This invitation is open to any and to all Jehovah’s Witnesses and Christians and to anyone and everyone else who claim Mohammad was a fraud/impostor.
Whereas Jesus was a prophet of God and was honorable as prophets of God are, as Allāh revealed in His Qur’an, according to the Bible Jesus was a hypocrite, liar, and fraud. See CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE.
From personal encounters with Jehovah’s Witnesses and other Christians, they are not interested in truth and reason –though Jesus and God call them to both. They are only interested in finding fools to swallow the body and mythical blood of Jesus Christ –SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM! And they seem to have been “brainwashed” into hating and denigrating Mohammad.
One Jehovah’s Witnesses went so far as to say to me that Mohammad was a “rapist, looter, and cripple.” Needless to say, he has no proof! For a response to this Christian’s, and other critics, twaddle see MOHAMMAD-RAPIST, PEDOPHILE, LOOTER, CRIPPLE).
Unable to advance their beliefs through intelligent discourse –and there is nothing intelligent about God shifting sins around from Adam to everyone then loading everyone’s sins onto Jesus and making him everyone’s scapegoat into heaven; and of God entering as a sperm into the womb of a woman He created and growing to human form and emerging from her vagina (and calling Him son of Mary and calling her “Mother of God”)– and not finding any argument against the lofty doctrines of Islam –as the Divine System is perfect; and the only thing Christianity has to offer mankind is the mythical blood and body of Jesus Christ (SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM) and a seat in the pew of PAGANISM– Christians resorted to their disgraceful practice of yesteryear, cloaking the Prophet Mohammad in the garb of terrorist and hedonist and attempting to demonize Islam. (See MOHAMMAD MOVIE & MUSLIMS OUTRAGE).
Christians denigrating Mohammad is hardly surprising, considering that Christians denigrate God –attributing injustice to Him and making Him complicit in murder (INHERITED SIN and vicarious atonement); giving Him a SON (and a PAGAN one at that); and putting His Holy Highness of Purity and Perfection into the belly of a woman and drawing Him out her vagina, making God son of Mary and calling her “Mother of God” (TRINITY).
These intellectually unpalatable morsels Christians digest as Divine delicacies.
Tragically, there are Muslims who, rather than learn Islam, have embraced the useless and unGodly crucifix. They have turned from the Divinely revealed religion to follow PAUL and his PAGAN SON OF GOD into Hell-Fire.
Muslims who have apostatized from Islam have the grand opportunity while they are alive to return to Allāh and His Heavenly Grandeur. When they’re dead there is no second chance.
27. In their Kingdom News #37 Bible tract The End Of False Religion Is Near! 2006, Jehovah’s Witnesses wrote: “Jesus Christ, indicated that false religion produces bad works, just as a “rotten tree produces worthless fruit.”(Matthew 7: 15-17).”
Response: So, Christianity is “false” because Christian priests “produce(s) worthless fruit” of “sexual abuse” of children.
That some claimants to divinely inspired religion do good works does not make their religion “true” religion.
Given that atheists also do good works, according to Jehovah’s Witnesses the atheist’s religion –‘non-existence of God’– is “true” religion.
Jehovah’s Witnesses may be doing good works but as shown in CHRISTIANITY-LIES, EVIL, HATE the doctrines of Christianity are lies, falsehood and blasphemy; etc. Jehovah’s Witnesses (and other Christians) are up to their noses in purgatory.
To emphasize, Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement– is a “false religion.”
28. Jehovah’s Witnesses note (in the above-mentioned tract): “the Bible says: “If anyone makes the statement: ‘I love God,’ and yet is hating his brother, he is a liar.”(1 John 4:20) Jesus even said “Continue to love your enemies.” (Matthew 5:44).”
Response: But Jesus ordered that his enemies be slain–(Luke 19:27). This is a strange form of “Continue to love your ene-mies.”
Jesus also says to love God, and yet he enjoins the killing (hating) of his brother (his enemies). As one who speaks of “love” of God and “yet is hating his brother” is a “liar,” Jehovah’s Witnesses are saying Jesus was a “liar.”
As hatred is what impels one to kill –killing in self defense is not hatred but self-preservation– and since God spoke of loving the world and yet sent the innocent Jesus to be killed, as Christians say, then according to Jehovah’s Witnesses/the Biblical God hated His “son” and is “a liar.” (See JESUS-LOVE ENEMIES).
29. Jehovah’s Witnesses state: “God will call false religion to account for all the despicable acts she has committed in his name.” (Ibid.)
Response: God will also call those who “tampered” with his Book and who knowingly teach this “tampered” book to others to account for these “despicable acts” they have “committed in his name.” God will also call those who fabricate falsehood in His name to account for these “despicable acts” they have “committed in his name.”
30. As stated at the beginning, Jehovah’s Witnesses claim: “Jehovah’s Witnesses do not just preach the Bible’s moral standards –they live by them.”29
Response: Well, Jehovah’s Witnesses, how about putting your dignity where your claim is and begin to “live” by this “moral standard” taught by the Master you profess to honor: “Thou shalt not bear false witness”–(Matt. 19:18), and inform the world about the “forgeries” in the BIBLE and let it know that Jesus was only a prophet of God sent ONLY FOR JEWS and as shown there was/is no inherited sin and vicarious atonement and that Jesus was a Muslim and he taught Islam. In which event you will have to close shop in those “235 lands,” which is “a mere trespass on lands forbidden by the Master.”30
There is no act more “despicable” than to knowingly follow and preach falsehood in God’s name:
“he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation”–(Mark 3:29).
“God’s anger is revealed from heaven against all the sin and evil of the people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known”–(Romans 1:18).
“Let them bear, on the Day of Judgment, their own burdens in full, And also (part) of the burdens of those without knowledge, whom they misled. Alas, how grievous the burdens they will bear”–(Qur’an 16:25)
The Builder(s) of the Church erected the myth of human blood sacrifice; millions will go to Hell trying to preserve it.
31. According to Jehovah’s Witnesses there is no Hell and man does not have a soul. 31
Response: The body is the medium through which the soul experiences feeling. Islam teaches that man has a soul–(Qur’an 39:42). So does Judaism–(Exodus 30:12; Deut; 13:6). And the Book of Job says: “(The Lord) In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind”–(Job 12:10).
Jesus also taught that man has a soul. Jesus says: “fear him which is able to destroy BOTH soul and body in hell”–(Matt. 10:28).
While the soul is indestructible by man it is not immortal; Allāh is the Creator and Vanquisher of all. (For details on the soul and hell and why Lazarus said nothing after his alleged resurrection see JESUS–SOUL & HELL).
According to Jehovah’s Witness: “those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth–(Luke 23:43).”32
Response: Does this mean that there are humans who will not be resurrected as humans?
In this quote of Luke 23:43 that Jehovah’s Witnesses quote to support their claim that the earth is paradise, Jesus says to the thief on the cross beside him: “Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
How could earth be paradise when according to Christians Christ went up into the sky “and sat on the right hand of God”–(Mark 16:19)?
If earth was paradise and Jesus went to paradise as he told the thief, either Jesus did not go to heaven or earth is not paradise, or according to Christians Jesus lied to the thief or Jesus did not know what he was talking about.
According to Christians Jesus, after the alleged crucifixion, descended into hell not paradise. The Apostles’ Creed states: “…Jesus Christ…was crucified, died, and buried, DESCENDED TO HELL, on the third day rose again from the dead, ascended to the heavens…”33
Ahmed Deedat notes in his booklet Is The Bible God’s Word? that the Ascension –(Mark 16:9-20)–was expunged from the Bible but restored. Matthew and John have nothing to say about this momentous event. Mark had Jesus ascend from inside a house–(Mark 16:14-20); Luke took him in the open air at Bethany–(Luke 24:50-51).
Luke conveys that the ascension took place on the day of resurrection–(Luke 23:43); the Acts said it was forty days after–(Acts 1:3); John had Jesus hanging around at least eight days after–(John 20-26); Paul claims Jesus visited him on the road to Damascus, which was more than forty days after the alleged resurrection. Thus, Jesus must have been busy shuttling up and down between “heaven and earth.” (See JESUS-SECOND COMING).
Any wonder that after two thousand years since Jesus’ mission ended Christians are not only wandering in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion as to who Jesus was/is and his mission but also as to where he went and when.
That Hell will be for all eternity is evidenced from Jesus who spoke of “everlasting fire” that “never shall be quenched”–(Matt. 18:8; Mark 9:43); and that the sinful shall receive the “greater damnation” of “hell;” and that in the “furnace of fire” there shall be “wailing and gnashing of teeth”–(Matt. 23:14, 33; 13:42). Jude 1:7 speaks about “the vengeance of eternal fire.”
That sinners will not be put to a final death forever, is evidenced by Jesus who said that the righteous shall go into “life eternal” and the “wicked and slothful servant” shall go away into “EVERLASTING punishment”–(Matt. 25:26, 46).
Sinners cannot be subjected to “everlasting punishment” if they are put to death forever.
If sinners will be put to a final death as punishment, it would be pointless
to resurrect them from their current death.
Even if there was no Hell and man did not have a soul, yet this would not make Jesus God, son of God, or one in a Trinity with God, or vicarious atoner; or that man inherited sin from Adam/ Eve. These doctrines are lies, falsehood, and blasphemy. These cardinal doctrines of Christianity have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation; and are repugnant to reason. These doctrines are assumed and propagated as Divine truths.
Unlike Islam which was revealed by Allāh and can substantiate its Divine status, Christianity as preached was not revealed by God and has no Divine foundation: “the religion now passing under the name of Jesus was never taught by him.”34 These doctrines are the pathway to Hell.
-whereas some Christians say that there is TRINITY some sayTrinity as a “senseless God-dishonoring doctrine” that can come only from the mind of “Satan the Devil;” Who is right?
-whereas some Christians say that Christ died for INHERITED SIN some say he died for committed sin; Who is right?
-whereas some Christians believe Jesus was killed, buried, and raised, “some of the early Christian sects did not believe that Christ was killed on the cross. The Basilidans believed that some one else was substituted for him. The Docetae held that Christ never had a real physical or natural body, but only an apparent or phantom body, and that his Crucifixion was only apparent, not real. The Marcionite Gospel (about A.D. 138) denied that Jesus was born, and merely said that he appeared in human form.”35 (And these Christians being closer in time to Jesus would know better than modern-day Christians); Who is right?
-whereas some Christians say JESUS’ BIRTH was virginal some say it was not36(“virgin” birth is a forgery in the Bible). Even Paul says Jesus had a father. Who is right? (See JESUS-SON OF GOD).
And the above contradictions between Christians are on the cardinal doctrines of Christianity –the basis of their religion. Any wonder then that for two thousand years Christians are wandering in “darkness and misunderstanding” and confusion as to who Jesus was and his mission?
Jesus’ teaching was simple, clear, and precise: that God sent him wholly and solely to the “House of Israel;” that eternal life lies in following the Ten Commandments, after which time his people are to follow the Comforter who will guide them into “all truth” and will “abide forever.”
And this Comforter as shown by Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud B.D. –“the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uniate-Chaldean sect”– in his revealing book Muhammad in the Bible is the Prophet MOHAMMAD.
As shown on our site the cardinal doctrines of Christianity are NOT Divine Revelations -they are not clearly expressed in the Bible- these doctrines are assumptions.
Trinity was invented by the Church 300 years after Christ; and inherited sin and vicarious atonement were devised by St. (?) Paul.
While Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in Trinity. In summary. Christianity is:
● Trinity –God growing in the womb, coming out the vagina and getting circumcised; and needing to eat butter and honey “that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”-(Isaiah 7:14-15)
● Son of God –attributing the animal function of sex to God; as “fatherhood” requires the union of sperm and ovum; (and Jesus is only “CALLED” son of God-Luke 1:35); and needing to eat butter and honey “that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good”-(Isaiah 7:14-15)
● Inherited sin –God loading a man’s (Adam’s) sin onto innocent, helpless and mentally non-competent babies
● Vicarious atonement –God having a blameless man (Jesus) killed for the sin of others.
Which are gruesome, unGodly monstrosities!
What kind of God and son of God are Christians following that need to eat butter and honey in order to differentiate between good and evil?
What kind of God are Christians following that lived in the belly of a woman and came out her vagina and circumcised?
What kind of God are Christians following that puts one man’s sin onto innocent, helpless, and morally and mentally non-competent babies?
What kind of God are Christians following that had a blameless man killed for the sins of others?
This is the insanity that Christians have hundreds of thousands of missionaries plying the world and blowing billions of dollars (which could be utilized to eradicate/alleviate world poverty) for Muslims and others to nail our intelligence to the “cross” of lunacy and blind faith and follow.
Incidentally, Jesus is noted as saying: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature” (which would include the baboon)–(Mark 16:15; though this verse is a “forgery” in the Bible), and, regarding “the end of the world” Jesus says: “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and THEN SHALL THE END COME”–(Matthew 24:3, 14. Thus, if any nation(s) should ban the Gospel from its land the “end” shall NEVER COME).
Bluntly put, Christianity -Trinity, inherited sin and vicarious atonement- is not only lies,, falsehood and blasphemy, Christianity is nonsense.
(Even Hinduism is superior to Christianity. Whereas both religions reduce God to “son” of a woman and make woman “mother” of God by placing God in the body of a woman and bring Him out her genital. Unlike Christianity which attributes injustice to God and makes God complicit in murder by shifting Adam’s sin around onto every person and then onto Jesus and having him murdered, Hinduism, does not attribute injustice to God and make Him complicit in murder; Hinduism gives to man an equal and opposite reaction to his action; though this renders God as being mercy-less, see Karma & Reincarnation.
Also, whereas Jesus/Christianity regards non-Jews as “dogs” and “swine” and preached in “parables” so these metaphorical “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved, Hinduism does not regard non-Jews or non-Hindus as “dogs” and “swine” or preached in parables so they would not understand. The God or son of God or prophet that regards one sector of humanity as “:dogs” and “swine” and even preach so they would not understand and be saved is the God/son of God/prophet not worthy of honor much less of adoration and worship. Even humans fight against racism and bigotry).
The Divine truth is: Jesus was only a prophet of God sent only to the Jews and to foretell the coming of another Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and “abide forever” (through the QUR’AN); and
There is no God but Allāh!
Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh!
Regarding this statement of Jesus in Mark 16:16-18: “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved…and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them,” one Christian apologist wrote:
“The Muslim is guilty of misinterpreting Jesus’ meaning in this passage since a sound rule of exegesis is to interpret scripture in light of scripture. Once this is done, we discover the true meaning of Jesus’ words:
“The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. ‘If you are the Son of God,’ he said, ‘throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”‘ Jesus answered, ‘It says: “Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”‘” Luke 4:9-12
In light of this passage, Jesus was not telling his followers to go around picking up snakes or drinking poison. Christ’s point was that no matter what the enemy tries to do in thwarting the efforts of the believers, he will never succeed. This is based solely on the promises of Christ that his authority rests upon all true believers to accomplish his will in our lives:
“‘The seventy-two returned with joy and said, ‘Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.’ He replied, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.'” Luke 10:17-20”
Response: This is typical Christian-crockery. What is a metaphorical “deadly thing” that one drinks? Can anyone put God to “test”? And if it is written that God said “He will command his angels” to safeguard Jesus and if Jesus asked God to fulfill His promise and protect him how is this putting God “to the test?” Wasn’t Jesus certain that God would keep His word or did he not trust God? (And if Jesus is God then Jesus did not want to put himself “to the test”).
If asking God for help is to put God to “the test” how is it that Jesus asked God to be spared from death?–(Matthew 26:39). And why did Jesus ask God to forgive those who nailed him to the “pole”–(Luke 23:34. Incidentally, since Jesus had power to forgive sins, why ask God to forgive them?–Luke 5:24. And if Jesus is God, God asked Himself to forgive them). And, didn’t Jesus tell his people to pray to God for their daily bread and to ask and it shall be given them and that “in ALL things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”? Were his followers who prayed to and asked God putting God “to the test”?–(Matt. 6:9-11; 7:7; 21:22).
Since “a sound rule of exegesis is to interpret scripture in light of scripture,” how is it that Christians interpret Jesus’ CLEAR teachings that he was sent only for Jews –to seek and save them and that he prayed only for them– and 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) to mean that mankind inherited sin from Adam and God sent Jesus to be killed/scapegoat for this (non-existent) sin?
Since “a sound rule of exegesis is to interpret scripture in light of scripture,” how is it that Christians take Jesus’ clear statements that he was SENT by God and that he does only according to what GOD commands to mean that Jesus is God –that God went into the belly of a woman He created and came out her vagina?
That Jesus answered the Devil: “Do not put the Lord your God to the test“‘” Luke 4:9-12, this has no relevancy to Jesus saying “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved…and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.” If the drinking of deadly thing is metaphorical then these “that believeth and is baptized” must also be metaphorical.
Jesus gave his followers power against harm from poisonous creatures much as he gave them power to forgive sins–(John 20:23); and power to “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils freely ye have RECEIVED, freely GIVE”–(Matt. 10:8). One cannot receive and give “authority” “to trample” on metaphorical “snakes and scorpions” AND to overcome ALL the power of the enemy” and yet be told that “NOTHING WILL HARM YOU.” The history of Christians is proof that Christians were “harmed” by the “enemy” –many were fed to lions. Does this mean that Christ lied to his followers or that Christ did not know what he was talking about?
In drinking this “deadly” thing Christians are not putting their God “to the test,” they are verifying their Son of God’s (and their God’s) dictum that so long as they “believe” and are “baptized” they “shall be saved” from Hell and if these believers “DRINK any DEADLY THING” these “deadly things” will not “harm” them. Here is Jesus’ full saying with comments in italics:
“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; and he that believeth not SHALL BE DAMNED (If drinking deadly things is metaphorical, then the DAMNING of the disbelievers must also be metaphorical: they do not have to worry about going to Hell, it is not real/literal). And these things shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues (let the Christian apologist explain Jesus’ followers metaphorical speaking “In Jesus’ name” and their metaphorical casting out devils and speaking new languages). They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them (What is a metaphorical “deadly thing” that one drinks?); They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (let the Christian apologist explain the metaphorical laying of hands and the metaphorical recovery of the sick from their metaphorical sickness).”
It would seem comical for Jesus to give his followers LITERAL “authority” over METAPHORICAL “serpents.”
“The Muslim is” NOT “guilty of misinterpreting Jesus’” Muslims are correct in “interpreting” Jesus. In contrast, Christians are the ones “guilty of misinterpreting Jesus’”: Christians have somersaulted Jesus clear teachings: desecrated Godhood–Trinity–; ascribed injustice to God–inherited sin–; and made God complicit in murder–vicarious atonement.
The Christian apologist’s claim that “Christ’s point was that no matter what the enemy tries to do in thwarting the efforts of the believers, he will never succeed. This is based solely on the promises of Christ that his authority rests upon all true believers to accomplish his will in our lives,” is a joke.
The enemies of Christ –Satan, Constantine, and certain Christian fathers– have been successful in “thwarting the efforts” of Christ’s true “believers” by instituting Trinity, inherited sin, and vicarious atonement (all of which were alien to Jesus and the Jews of Jesus’ time).
(Except for Muslims who believe in Christ in his true status and mission) Christ has no followers today. The some two billion who call themselves Christians are so only in name, Jesus Christ is only a figurehead in the Church. Christianity may rightly be named Churchianity or Paulianity; and adherents named Churchians or Paulians. Christians are following Paul and his pagan son of God; they are not following God and His Christ -see ALLAH & JESUS OR PAUL; JESUS OR MOHAMMAD-THE GREATEST; JESUS-INHERITED SIN).
Rather than accept and follow the Divine truth that Jesus was only a messenger to the Jews and “There is no God but Allāh and Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh,” the Christian apologist engages in all manner of verbal gymnastics to pacify himself and fellow Christians who revel in blind faith (and to hoodwink uneducated and unthinking people into eating the body and drinking the mythical blood of Jesus Christ–SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM).
Christians can reject Mohammad but Christians cannot refute Mohammad’s claim to Divine Messengership. In fact, of all the claimants to Divine Dispensation Mohammad is the only one who can substantiate his claim. (See JESUS OR MOHAMMAD -THE GREATEST).
It was Mohammad who, through the Divine Revelation of the infallible Qur’an, removed the shroud of calumny wrapped around Jesus and his mother, Mary –that Mary was an “adulteress” and Jesus was of illegitimate birth– and appareled them in rubious robes or righteousness; and cleared away the cumulous clouds of conjectures shrouding Jesus and sat him elegantly in the celestial spotlight of Divine Truth –of him being human and a prophet of God– and has secured for him today the unflagging allegiance of more than one billion Muslims. And counting. As Islam spirits on. Inexorably. Invincibly. Impregnably. As Divinely decreed to prevail over all religions –(Qur’an 9:33; 48:28; 61:9).
Mohammad was no anti-Christ! Mohammad “testify” of Christ! (John 15:26).
It would be a gross error to view Muslims as “enemies” of Jesus. In fact, considering that Jesus taught the Unity of God, sinless birth, eternal life through obedience to the Commandments of God and to love him requires following the Comforter, (Mohammad), Muslims, who observe these teachings of Jesus, can be said to be the true followers of Jesus.
Only the peripheral Muslim and the unthinking would embrace the useless and unGodly crucifix.

BThe Bible/Christ is for Jews only until the coming of the COMFORTERat which time Jews are to follow this Comforter who will guide them into “all truth”–(John 14:16; 16:13). Previous to this teaching of Jesus, God had decreed that kingship and prophethood would depart from the Jewish people at the advent of Shiloh–(Gen. 49:10); Moses foretold that God will raise up a prophet like him (Moses) whom the Israelites are to follow–(Deut. 18:15, 18); and Jesus further said that the kingdom of God shall be taken from the Israelites and given to another people–(Matt. 21:43). And this Shiloh, prophet like Moses and the Comforter have been shown to be the Prophet Mohammad. (See Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani– Muhammad in the Bible; and Abdul Haque Vidyarthi, Muhammad in World Scriptures, Vol. 1). In Deut. 18:18 of the Bible Moses made it clear that God says all those who do not follow this prophet like him that, “whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him” (i.e. they will have to answer to God for not following this prophet–Mohammad). And in what seems to be a reflection of this decree of God, the Prophet Mohammad is reported as having said: “he who amongst the community of Jews or Christians hears about me, but does not affirm his belief in that which I have been sent and dies in this state (of disbelief), he shall be but one of the denizens of Hell”–(Muslim Vol. 1, #284). While all prophets taught Islam, Islam was perfected only through the Prophet Mohammad: “This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favour to you and chosen for you Islam as a religion”–(Qur’an 5:3). Thus, as Islam (as taught by the Prophet Mohammad) is superior to all religions, whoever needs another religion it will not be accepted: “Surely the (true) religion with Allāh is Islam;” “Seek they then other than Allāh’s religion? And to Him submits whoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and to Him they will be returned;” “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers”–(Qur’an 3:19, 83, 85). The Qur’an comprises of the best teachings given to other prophets as well as teachings not given to other prophets: “We narrate to thee the best of narratives, in that We have revealed to thee this Qur’an, though before this thou wast of those unaware;” “And certainly We have set forth for men in this Qur’an similitudes of every sort that they may mind;” “We have not neglected anything in the Book;” “A Messenger from Allāh, reciting pure pages, Wherein are (all) right books”–(Qur’an (12:3; 39:27; 6:38; 98:2-3).Thus the Qur’an comprises of, exceeds, and supersedes all other Scriptures.

16B. The Qur’an consists of teachings of the Bible and other Scriptures that are applicable to all time–(Qur’an 98:3) and also contains teach-ings not met with in these Scriptures. The Qur’an having exceeded all previous Scriptures is thus the Best Message–(Qur’an 7:185; 39:23; 77:50) and it therefore supersedes all previous Books. Though they are useful for references to the histories of prophets.
All prophets prior to Mohammad were tribal and their message tem-porary and limited to their people. Mohammad being the world Prophet–(Qur’an 7:158; 21:107; 34:28) having brought the best Mess-age with “all truth”–(Qur’an 6:38; 12:111; 16:89) and through whom religion was perfected and God’s favor completed–(Qur’an 5:3) sur-passes all prophets. Though these prophets are to be honored, all are now to follow Mohammad, as taught by Moses and Jesus; and required by God–(Deut. 18:18-19; John 14:16; 16:13).

17A. Allāh tells us in his Qur’an 9:30 that “son of God” belief is paganism. Muhammad Ali notes: “when St. Paul saw that the Jews would on no account accept Jesus Christ as a messenger of God, he introduced the pagan doctrine of son-ship of God into the Christian religion, so that it might become more acceptable to the pagans.”
Maurice Bucaille states in his book The Bible, The Qur’an, And Science: “As far as the decades following Jesus’s mission are concerned, it must be understood that events did not at all happen in the way they have been said to have taken place and that Peter’s arrival in Rome no way laid the foundations for the Church. On the contrary, from the time Jesus left earth to the second half of the Second century, there was a struggle between two factions. One was what one might call Pauline Christianity and the other Judeo-Christianity;” and
“PAUL IS THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE IN CHRISTIANITY. HE WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A TRAITOR TO JESUS’S THOUGHT BY THE LAT-TER’S FAMILY AND BY THE APOSTLES WHO HAD STAYED IN JERUSALEM IN THE CIRCLE AROUND JAMES. PAUL CREATED CHRISTIANITY AT THE EXPENSE OF THOSE WHOM JESUS HAD GATHERED AROUND HIM TO SPREAD HIS TEACHINGS. (While others ‘combated’ Paul’s writings) PAUL’S STYLE OF CHRISTIANITY WON THROUGH DEFINITIVELY, AND CREATED ITS OWN COLLECTION OF OFFICIAL TEXTS. THESE TEXTS CONSTITUTED THE ‘CANON’ WHICH CONDEMNED AND EXCLUDED AS UNORTHODOX ANY OTHER DOCUMENTS THAT WERE NOT SUITED TO THE LINE ADOPTED BY THE CHURCH.” (pp. 52-53. Caps, emphasis added).

30. After relating the parable of the sower to the people Jesus explained his reason for preaching in parables: “And he said unto them, 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); the Good News Bible put it even more clearly: “You have been given the secret of the Kingdom of God,” Jesus answered. “But the others, who are on the outside, hear all things by means of parables, so that, ‘They may look and look, yet not see; they may listen and listen, yet not understand. For if they did, they would turn to God, and he would forgive them.’” What a ghastly, horribly sickening for the man who came to “die” for sinners of the world to do! (Contrast this Christian’s Son of God and God to Mohammad who gave the word of Allāh, God, to all and freely; and even prayed for his dead enemy. There is none in the world to equal Mohammad’s mercy and benevolence).

Ibn Warraq notes in his book Why I Am Not A Muslim: “Martin Luther (1483-1546), writing in the sixteenth century, conceded that “We Christians seem fools to the world for believing that Mary was the true mother of this child, and nevertheless a pure virgin. For this is not only against all reason, but also against the creation of God, who said to Adam and Eve, ‘Be fruitful and multiply.’”” p. 144.
