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.
BIBLE–CORRUPT & OBSOLETE
(See also JESUS-REDUNDANT NO RANSOM)
No Scripture was in its pristine purity at the advent of the Prophet Mohammad. Abdul Haque Vidyarthi wrote:
“No scripture, writing or book has got so many people to its credit who learn it by heart, as the Holy Qur’an has. Religious scriptures underwent vicissitudes and had dark ages upon them, that their very contents and their existence became suspected. It was in this obscurity that the Vedas grew from one into four, and then from four to as many as 1131, there is a verse in Maha Bhashya which explains that there are one hundred and one shoots of Yajur-veda, one thousand of Samaveda, twenty -one kinds of Rigveda and nine of Atharva-veda.
In these days we can see a dozen vedas published, in fact, which throws light on their vicissitudes.
The Masorah and Septuagint versions of the old Testament, the different authorized editions of the Sadducees and Pharisees, the apocryphal literature believed as part of inspired scriptures by some sects and rejected by others, the different versions of apocryphal Gospels, prove the credibility of the fact that no religious scripture was kept intact or properly maintained or committed to memory in the life-time of the prophet to whom it was revealed.”1
Originally the Bible was in oral form. Maurice Bucaille notes in his book The Bible, The Qur’an And Science:
“(The Old Testament) were written in several languages over a period of more than nine hundred years, based on oral traditions. Many of these works were corrected and completed in accordance with events or special requirements, often at periods that were very distant from one another.” “A Revelation is mingled in all these writings, but all we possess today is what men have seen fit to leave us. These men manipulated the texts to please themselves, according to the circumstances they were in and the necessities they had to meet.”
“(The Gospels) the foremost authority was the oral tradition as a vehicle for Jesus’s words and the teachings of the apostles. The first writings to circulate were Paul’s letters and they occupied a prevalent position long before the Gospels”; “contrary to what certain com-mentators are still writing today, before 140 A.D. there was no witness to the knowledge that a collection of Gospel writings existed. It was not until circa 170 A.D. that the four Gospels acquired the status of canonic literature.” “The abundance of literature concerning Jesus led the Church to make certain excisions while the latter was in the process of becoming organized. Perhaps a hundred Gospels were suppressed. Only four were retained and put on the official list of neo-Testament writings making up what is called ‘Canon’.” “The majority of Christians believe that the Gospels were written by direct witnesses of the life of Jesus and therefore constitute un-questionable evidence concerning the events high-lighting His life and preachings.” “Unfortunately, the authors of the Gospels were not eye-witnesses of the data they recorded.” “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.” “Paul is the most controversial figure in Christianity. He was considered to be a traitor to Jesus’s thought by the latter’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… Paul’s style of Christianity won through definitively, and created its own collection of official texts.”2
Christian authorities admit to the humanness of the Bible. According to Christian authorities:
“The term “Bible” was not used to designate the Holy Scriptures until the time of the early Church Fathers about A.D. 400.” “During the 1,200 or more years when its materials were being written, the Bible did not circulate as a single book.”2A (Notably, the Bible was written over a period of “1,200 or more years). “Centuries of hand copying subjected the text of the Old Testament to all the problems attendant upon the preservation of a correct text by such means. By the time of the Council of Jamnia there were so many variations among the manuscripts that to determine certainly the exact words of Scripture became a major problem.” “For the New Testament, more than 4,000 Greek manuscripts (not Hebrew or Aramaic which Jesus is said to have spoken), preserving all or part of the text, are known, the earliest sizeable texts dating from about A.D. 200 (200 years after Christ). There are some 8,000 manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate and at least 1,000 other versions into which the original books were translated. Since the original autograph of no book in the New Testament is known, it becomes the task of the textual expert to deal with the thousands of variant readings to be found in this multitude of ancient manuscripts. These manuscripts are compared and studied in order to establish a critical text that gives reasonable assurance of being as near the original as can be determined.” “1500-500? B.C.–The Old Testament is put into writing.” “A.D. 52?-100?–The New Testament is written, coming to us in the koiné Greek, the common language of the time, although some portion may have been first set down in Aramaic, the language spoken by Christ”2B
Jehovah’s Witnesses admit:
“…THE ORIGINAL TEXT OF THE CHRISTIAN GREEK SCRIPTURES (1) HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH, THE SAME AS THE TEXT OF THE LXX (2) HAS BEEN.” 3
Equally striking, Jehovah’s Witnesses in their Awake magazine of September 8, 1957, headlined “50,000 Errors in the Bible?” notes that:
“Recently, a young man purchased a King James Version Bible thinking it was without error. One day when glancing through a back issue of Look he came across an article entitled “The Truth About the Bible,” which said that “as early as 1720, an English authority estimated that there were at least 20,000 errors in the two editions of the New Testament commonly read by Protestants and Catholics. Modern students say there are probably 50,000 errors.””4 (These are not matters for dispute, they are Christians’ findings. Even if there was no error in the Bible and even if the Bible was recorded at the time of its revelation and handed down in pristine purity yet this would not make Jesus God, one in a trinity with God, vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin: for, these doctrines have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation, and are repugnant to reason. See Christianity-lies, evil, hate).
The questions are who made these errors in the Bible? Who gave authority to correct them? And how many more errors are yet in the Bible?
Even today, changes are made in the Bible, as Ahmed Deedat has shown in his booklet Is the Bible God’s Word? For example, the word “VIRGIN” in Isaiah 7:14 has been replaced with the phrase “a young woman” in the RSV Bible; the word “BEGOTTEN” of “begotten son” of John 3:16, has been “excised;” the verse of 1-John 5:7 which speaks of the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost (the Trinity) “has also been scrapped from the RSV” Bible; and the verses of Mark 16:19 and Luke 24:51 which refer to the Ascension of Jesus were “expunged” but later “restored to the text.” Deedat also notes that while these terms have been “unceremoniously excised” from English Bibles, they are retained in the Bible’s nearly 1500 other languages. (Such is the Church’s deception and desperation to snare the innocent native into eating the “body” and drinking the mythical “blood” of Christ –SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM. This is probably the lowest depth of spiritual depravity. Christians also take on the role of “wolves in sheep’s clothing” to lead Muslim astray, see CHRISTIANS–STEALTH CRUSADE AGAINST MUSLIMS).
(Many years ago, during an in-house presentation, it was stated that in India Christians are giving apples to poor children and telling them that Jesus sent it. What a maroon! Jesus could not find figs for himself on earth to eat and he is sending apples from heaven to others –this Christian’s God/son of God was not only ignorant of the season for figs; he was so disappointed and despondent at his lack of fore-knowledge that fig was not in season and so frustrated at his powerlessness to produce fruit he cursed the helpless and blameless fig tree to death–Mark 11:11-14, 20-21. Please note: this is the Christians’ Jesus; for the Muslims’ Jesus read the Qur’an).
Christian authorities themselves have recognized that there are alterations even regarding the virgin birth theory as asserted in Luke 1:34-35, and concluded that: “Removal of verses 34-35, which contain the only reference to virgin birth, as interpolations, is justified;” and “Realizing the position that the relevant verses regarding the virgin birth in both Matthew and Luke are forgeries, the compilers of the Encyclopaedia Biblica were compelled to come to the only possible conclusion that: The virgin birth disappears from the source altogether.” (For details see JESUS-BIRTH MIRACLE OR MECHANIX).
Even at the present, some new Bibles do not contain certain books, such as The Maccabees, as was present in past versions. And Khwaja Nazir Ahmad has shown in his revealing book Jesus in Heaven on Earth many incidences of tampering in the Bible.
As the older copies of these altered texts suffer the ravages of time the new ones with the alteration(s) gain prevalence. Future generations may never become aware of these alterations.
Allāh exposes the humanness of past Scriptures: “Woe! Then to those who WRITE the Book with their hands THEN SAY, This is from Allah.…”–(Qur’an 2:79). Muhammad Ali comments:
“The alteration and corruption of the Bible, the Old as well as the New Testament, spoken of in v. 75 and repeated here, is now an established fact. That the alteration spoken of in v. 75 was an alteration of the words of the text (and not a misinterpretation of the “Holy Texts”) is made manifest here: “They write the Book with their hands then say: This is from Allāh.” These alterations they effected for their own selfish ends. “That they may take for it a small price”. I give below a few quotations from Rev. Dummelow, which proves the alteration of the Bible text beyond all doubt: “On close examination, however, it must be admitted that the Pentateuch reveals many features inconsistent with the traditional view that in its present form it is the work of Moses. For instance, it may be safely granted that Moses did not write the account of his own death in Dt. 34. The statement in Dt. 1:1 that Moses spoke these words beyond Jordan is evidently made from the standpoint of one living in Canaan, which Moses never did….Other passages which can with difficulty be ascribed to him are Ex. 6:26, 27; 11:3; 16:35, 36; Lv. 18:24–28; Nu. 12:3; Dt. 2:12” (Bible Commentary, p. xxiv). And again: “A careful examination has led many scholars to the conviction that the writings of Moses formed only the rough material or purport of the material, and that in its present form it is not the work of one man, but a compilation made from previously existing documents” (p. xxvi). Still again: “Similarly in the legislative portions of these books we find apparent contradictions and these not in minor or insignificant details, but in fundamental enactments” (p. xxvi). The text of the New Testament is still more unreliable. The same author says: “To begin with, the writers of the Gospels report in Greek … the sayings of Jesus Christ, who for the most part probably spoke Aramaic…Not even in later centuries do we find that scrupulous regard for the sacred text which marked the transmission of the Old Testament. A copyist would sometimes put in not what was in the text, but what he thought out to be in it. He would trust a fickle memory, or he would even make the text accord with the views of the school to which he belonged” (p. xvi).” (Muhammad Ali’s translation of the Qur’an can be viewed online: www.muslim.org).
Four more instances of alteration of the texts of the Bible:
(i) Prof. ‘Abdul Ahad Dawud (the former Rev. David Benjamin Keldani) in his book Muhammad in the Bible, has noted that the Jews “efface the name “Ishmael” from the second, sixth, and seventh verses of the twenty-second chapter of the Book of Genesis” and “insert in its place “Isaac.”” (For full quote see ISHMAEL AND PAUL. It is doubtful that a man of God would “efface” Ishmael’s name and insert a false name, and promote this as the Word of God).
(ii) In the Gospel of John 8:5 the Jews told Jesus that Moses taught that the adulterer/adulteress is to be stoned to death. Muhammad Ali has pointed out in his The Religion of Islam: “That the present Torah does not give stoning as the punishment for adultery is clear proof that the text has been altered. The Gospels show that such was the punishment up to the time of Jesus.” (p. 732). (It is doubtful that one who alters the command of God would go to heaven).
(iii) Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din points out in his book Open Letters To The Bishops of Salisbury & London, (pp. 31-32): “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.5 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) 6 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.”
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).
(iv) Muhammad Ali notes: “Commenting on the well-known confession of Christ, “Why callest thou me good, (Mk. 10:18) Dummelow says that in the Revised Version of Matthew, Christ’s reply is, “Why askest thou me concerning that which is good”; and adds: “The author of Matthew….altered the text slightly, to prevent the reader from supposing that Christ denied that He was good.” (The Religion of Islam, p. 212, f/n).
Here are the examples of the forgery of Jesus’ saying; the first quote in the following is from the “Self-Pronouncing Edition” Bible published by The World Publishing Company, Cleve; 2, Ohio; the second quote is from “The Gideons” Bible published by The Lockman Foundation, La Habra, California. Bold words show alteration; underlined words are not in the Gideons Bible:
(1) “one came and said unto him (Jesus), Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said un-to him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is God: but…”
(2) “one came to Him (Jesus) and said, “Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life? And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but…” (Even their forgery is clumsy: who better is there to tell or to ask “what is good” than God or the “Son of God”).
Is it not telling a “lie” on God that He revealed the changed words? Is it not telling a “lie” on Jesus that he uttered the changed words? It is not goodness to tell a “lie” on God or His prophet. It is Hell-Fire–(Mark 3:29).
It is doubtful a devotee of God would alter his Book of God and propagate falsehood in the name of God, the very God from Whom he seeks his daily bread and on Whose right hand he wishes to sit. It is doubtful that God would take kindly to one who alters His Book and propagates falsehood. And take even less kindly to those who knowingly adhere to such falsehood. It is not loyalty to God or Jesus, or honor to them, to ascribe falsehood to them. (Perhaps one who would tell a lie on God and on His prophet would have no qualms about lying to, or on, man).
Writing the Book with their hands–Qur’an 2:79–does not mean only the changing of words and of writing part(s) of a text but also include entire books such as those written by Paul and others, which form part of the New Testament, and are being pressed on as the “Word of God.” “More than half of the Acts of the Apostles …together with the letters written by him (St. Paul) or in his name, comprises one-third of the New Testament.”7
In his book Jesus in Heaven on earth, Khwaja Nazir Ahmad also has noted numerous forgeries, alterations and interpolations in the Bible. For example, regarding the birth of Jesus, Khwaja exposes: “In Matthew the phrase originally was: And Jacob begat Joseph, and Joseph begat Jesus of Mary. But the simple phrase: and Jacob begat Joseph, and Joseph begat Jesus of Mary was soon changed into: And Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Discussing this change in this verse Rev. C. J. Scofield in his Reference to the New Testament had to admit: “The changed expression was introduced to convey that Jesus was not begotten of natural conception.”8 One of the copyists made anther alteration. He changed the phrase to: And Jacob begat Joseph, and Joseph, to whom was married the virgin Mary, begat Jesus.”9
The introduction of the word virgin clearly, but rather awkwardly, exhibited the object for which the alteration was made; and the Church was compelled to disown it.” (While the manuscripts of Luke do not permit such scrutiny as Matthew’s, Khwaja notes): “But that it has been changed is self-evident and sufficiently proved by the reading of the relevant verse: And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was sup-posed) the son of Joseph….10 The words as was supposed are in brackets and betray an addition, as Loisy justly observes: “to abrogate the idea of natural sonship which the text of this passage originally suggested.”” (pp. 123-125/153-155.
(What devotee of God will mutilate God’s Book and lead others astray? For more on Christian’s jugglery over Jesus’ birth see JESUS-BIRTH MIRACLE OR MECHANIX. Let the Christian apologists explain why these forgeries were made).
Christians are quick to trumpet that the Bible is the “inspired” word of God. Let the Pope and Christians admit that God “inspired” the thousands of “errors” and “contradictions” and “tampering” in the Bible (which is blasphemy).
Let the Pope and Christians admit that God “inspired” Paul –the persecutor of the Church who said he heard Jesus’ voice though he may had never seen Jesus or heard his voice to know if it is Jesus’ voice or the Devil’s, and Jesus was supposed to be sitting “on the right hand of God”– to forge his own “gospel” and to bring people into his worship through “craft” and “guile” (which is blasphemy). (For details see Allāh and Jesus or Paul).
The Bible itself conveys that it has been falsified; God revealed to the prophet Jeremiah to convey to the people:“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).
Will Christians inform the world about the falsity of Divinity of Jesus, virgin birth, inherited sin and vicarious atonement?
“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”–(Rom.1:18).11
“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).
Capable Muslims (and honest individuals) should make booklets in the languages of these nearly 1500 non-English poor natives enlightening them to the false teachings of Christianity. God warns: “Keep thee far from a false matter… And thou shalt take NO GIFT: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous”–(Exodus 23:7-8).
Man can alter Scriptures and deceive,
man cannot alter decrees of God!
Even a mere glance at the Bible would reveal that the present Gospel is a human product. Whereas Allāh says He gave to Jesus the Injil, the Gospels that Christians have, though it may contain words of Jesus, is NOT the Injil. The Gospels that Christians have are four books “ACCORDING TO” Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and tailored to suit King James–“King James Version.” They are not “according to” God or Jesus, or God’s or Jesus’ “Version;” see ALLAH SAYS FOLLOW GOSPEL.
Allāh saying that the Qur’an confirms past scriptures only means that Revelations were given to the prophets of old, not that it put the stamp of Divine approval on all its stories, (one such childish story is chapter eleven, the tower of Babel).
The Qur’an states, and research confirms, that only Noah’s people were drowned, not the entire world as the Bible conveys. It would be an injustice to destroy the entire world for the sins of Noah’s people.
Significantly, whereas Muslims are required by Allāh to believe in all His revealed Books, many of the stories in the Bible such as that prophets committed sins are not supported by the Qur’an. Allāh. tells us that all prophets were sinless.
Whereas Muslims are to believe in past Scriptures, Allāh also tells us what not to believe, such as sonship of God, Trinity, God incarnate, Mariolatry, inherited sin, vicarious atonement, karma and reincarnation, polytheism, idolatry, “chosen people” to the exclusion of others. Such teachings have no Divine foundation; no prophetic foundation; and no logical foundation; and are repugnant to reason. These teachings are assumed and propagated as Divine truths.
That teachings of the Qur’an conflict with those of the Bible does not mean that the Bible is correct. Maurice Bucaille points out in his book The Bible, The Qur’an and Science
“It spanned a period of some twenty years and, as soon as it was transmitted to Muhammad by Archangel Gabriel, Believers learned it by heart. It was also written down during Muhammad’s life…Since then, we know that the text has been scrupulously preserved. It does not give rise to any problems of authenticity.” “More than a thousand years before our time, at a period when whim-sical doctrines still prevailed, men had a knowledge of the Qur’an. The statements it contains express in simple terms truths of primordial importance which man has taken centuries to discover.”
(In the Qur’an) “statements are to be found in it (as has been shown) that are connected with science: and yet it is unthinkable that a man of Muhammad’s time could have been the author of them. Modern scientific knowledge therefore allows us to understand certain verses of the Qur’an which, until now, it has been impossible to interpret.”
“Whereas monumental errors are to be found in the Bible, I could not find a single error in the Qur’an.” (pp. 250-251, 120. Emphasis/highlight added).
If God wrote the Bible which contains “monumental errors” and “contradictions” then who wrote the Qur’an which is free of errors and contradictions? Which is the Book, then, that you should follow? Clearly no sane or intelligent person will choose an inferior item over a superior one.
If the Devil wrote the Qur’an then the Devil is greater than the Christians’ God. And if Mohammad wrote the Qur’an then Mohammad is greater than the Christians’ God.
If Mohammad was a “fraud” and “false prophet” and Allāh a ‘false’ God, then this “fraud” and “false prophet” of this ‘false’ God produced a Book –the Qur’an– that is superior to the Bible in all facets of life –moral, social, intellectual, and spiritual.
Aside from being “juggled” with, there are statements in the Bible that do not befit Divine limbs and lips. That God would:
● enjoin cannibalism: “and thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters;” “So we boiled my son, and did eat him”–(Deut. 28:53-57. 2 Kings 6:28-29);
● 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 little virgin girls as war booty–(Numbers 31: 1-53);
● have priests burn their daughters for being a “whore” –(Leviticus 21:9);
● detail that a fetus stuck his hand out his mother’s womb–(Genesis 38:27-28);
● slay “woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass”–(1 Samuel 15:2-3);
● reduce woman to an object for sex, good only “to avoid fornication and as “defiler” of man–(1 Corinthians 7:1-2; Revelation 14:3-4); (For more on Jewish/Christian misogyny see Christianity-women).
● detail that Aholah and Aholibah “committed whoredoms in their youth” in Egypt where they had “their breasts pressed” and “bruised the teats of their virginity,” and that Aholibah “doted on their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses”–(Ezekiel 23:1-20);
● slaughter pregnant women and impale the fetus–(Isaiah 13:15, 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);
● declare “I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the owls”–(Micah 1:8);
● make Himself/Son a “sin;” “curse;” “lower” than angels–(2 Cor. 5:21; Gal. 3:13; Heb. 2:9);
● say to agree with your adversary before he gets you jailed (which would include agreeing with all kinds of injustice)–(Mat-thew 5:25). (Perhaps this is why the Church was silent as Christian Europe was “holocausting” Jews; she was following Jesus’ dictum; and considering that the Church/ Christians say Jews killed Jesus, their son of God and even their God). So for fear of imprisonment, Christians are to lie and agree to frame an innocent man for murder. (Christian nations of Europe that acquiesced to or supported German invasion must have been following Jesus’ precept to agree with their adversary. And Christians who handed Jews over to the Germans should be honored for obeying Jesus to agree with their adversary).
This injunction of Jesus to agree with the adversary 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. True, the Bible says “not [to] bear false witness against thy neighbor”–Ex. 20:16. But this is superseded by Jesus who is said to be God and Son of God. And Jesus came some five hundred years AFTER Moses. Better yet if these victims are not the Christian’s “neighbor.” Also, this saying 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. Seems only a crook would wait till he is jailed before paying every “farthing” he owes in order to get out of jail. (Matt. 5:26).
● tell man to eat cakes mixed with human “dung”–(Ezekiel 4:9-15).
One party on the Internet says the “human dung” and “cow’s dung” were to be used as “fuel” to bake the cakes. But even if Jews saved this dung for fuel and even if fresh dung can burn, the Bible itself belies the claim. God tells Ezekiel to take a mixture of barley and other grains: “And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it WITH dung that cometh out of man, in their sight. And the Lord said, Even thus shall the children of Israel EAT their DEFILED bread among the Gentiles…Then said I, Ah Lord God! behold, my soul hath not been POLLUTED: for from my youth up till even now have I not EATEN of that which dieth of itself, or is torn to pieces; neither came there ABOMINABLE FLESH INTO MY MOUTH.”
The bread could not be “defiled” if the dung was used as fuel, moreso if it was a common practice by Jews to use dung as “fuel.” The bread could only be “defiled” and an “abomination” to eat if it was mixed with human dung. Clearly, it was meant for Ezekiel to eat the human “dung” which to him was an “abomination” whereupon God decreed “cow’s dung” instead: “Then he (God) said to me, Lo, I give thee cow’s dung FOR MAN’S DUNG, and thou shalt PREPARE THY BREAD THEREWITH” (Ezekiel 4:15).
Such indignities could hardly be attributed to His Holy Highness. Whereas the Bible is expected to be “all” Word of God, as evidenced in these pages the Bible has more human weavings than a Galilean’s fishnet.
It is worth noting. After two thousand years since Jesus’ arrival and departure, Christians are still groping in the field of darkness as to who God is and as to who Jesus is. In fact, Christians do not know what Jesus’ mission was.
Whereas some Christians hold that Jesus is God, Jehovah’s Witnesses say he is only son of God–whose belief is right?
Whereas some Christians believe in Trinity, some hold Trinity as a “senseless God-dishonoring doctrine”–who is right?
Whereas some say Christ died for inherited sin, Mormons say he died for committed sin–whose belief is true?
Christians do not know whether Jesus is God, son of God or prophet of God –claiming that Jesus was the prophet like Moses–(Deut. 18:15, 18-19). Christians are also divided as to whether Jesus’ birth was “virginal” or “mechanical.”
Whereas some 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”12 (and these authorities were closer to Jesus in time and are expected to have accurate knowledge of Jesus than the “King James” (and others) “Versions” of the Gospels “according to” Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Where are the Gospels ‘according to” God or Jesus?
Given the humanness of the Bible/Gospels and the clouds of conjectures surrounding the existence of Jesus, but for the Qur’an/Islam/Mohammad Jesus may have long since been relegated to the bin of myths and legends. It is the Qur’an/Islam/Mohammad that is keeping Jesus alive; and not only keeping him alive but has cleansed him and his mother, Mary, of the calumnies of “bastard” and “adulteress,” respectively, hurled on them by Jewish Fathers, and appareled them in rubious robes of righteousness and have secured for them today the unflagging allegiance of some one-and-one-half billion Muslims. And counting as Islam spirits on. Inexorably! Invincibly! Impregnably! As Divinely decreed! To prevail over all religions! Allāh, God, truly is Great! Subhana Rabbayyal A’laa! )
As shown above, whereas the Qur’an is in its pristine purity, the Bible has been “tampered” with. The cardinal doctrines of a religion, as they delineate between heaven and hell, are to be clearly expressed (much like a person embarking on a journey would require that his trip be clearly mapped out lest he strays from his destination).
Whereas the cardinal doctrines of Islam –Unity of God and Messengership of Mohammad, Prayer, Charity, Fasting and Hajj– are clearly expressed in the Qur’an and explained by the Prophet Mohammad; the cardinal doctrines of Christianity –Divinity of Jesus, inherited sin; and vicarious atonement– are not clearly expressed in the Bible, nor explained by Jesus. There is no place in the Bible where Jesus says“I am God,” “I am one in a Trinity with God,” “I am the literal son of God” (as begetting requires the union of ovum and sperm), “man inherited sin from Adam,” “I came to die for the sins of the world;” these doctrines have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation, and are repugnant to reason. These doctrines are assumed, and propagated as Divine Truths. As shown CHRISTIANITY-IS A FAKE.
Christians juggle their “word” of God, they juggle His Holy name. Then they turn around with audacity and ask this same God Whose Book and Name they adulterated to give them their “daily bread.” They not only pray to God for their “daily bread,” but instead of repenting and correcting their misdeeds and follow the path of true religion as taught by Prophet Mohammad they brazenly pray to God to have Muslims and all mankind be accomplices in their iniquities.
In following mortal-minted doctrines, tampering with the Book of God and His name, and praying to God for Muslims to follow them, Christians are praying to God that Muslims not only be accomplices with them in their iniquities but also for God to sanction their sullying His own Book and Blessed Name.
That the Bible is the “perfect source of absolute, authoritative, binding, inerrant truth”13 from God (and written by God), as claimed by PASTOR Dr. JAMES MC DONALD, is patent Christian evangelical ‘claptrap and lip-talk.’ As shown, the Bible has more human weavings than a Galilean’s fishnet.
As Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din aptly wrote in his Open Letters to the Bishops of Salisbury & London regarding the Christian Foreign Mission (p. 16):
“They must be on a fool’s errand who seek to induce us to accept things rejected by their best men, and to reject those doctrines now accepted by their intellectually advanced people.” “This all reminds me of Canon Gairdner’s remark: “Islam is the only one (religion) that definitely claimed to correct, complete and supersede Christianity.” (This is not only a claim but proven fact).
Only the peripheral Muslim and the unthinking would embrace the useless and unGodly crucifix.
Jesus says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free (from lies, falsehood, and blasphemy). And the Divine truth is, Jesus was a prophet of God sent ONLY FOR JEWS and to foretell the coming of the Comforter (MOHAMMAD) who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide for ever” and whom all are to follow. And the Divine truth is:
“THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLĀH;
MOHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLĀH!”

6. The Bible/Christ is for Jews only until the coming of the Comforter at 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.
