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.
ALLĀH DEVOID OF MERCY
Nonie Darwish states in her book Cruel And Usual Punishment: “While Christian literature is full of repentance, Muslim scriptures, society, and history are devoid of it. In fact, those who “repent” of Islam’s teachings of cruelty and violence are called apostates and must be killed.” (p. xxvi).
Response: Christian literature is so full of “repentance” yet the Christian God was devoid of grace and could not accept repen-tance without needing to first send a scapegoat (Jesus, as Christians claim) to be killed for sinners.
Here is a classical case of Nonie Darwish’s confusion between Islam and Muslims. Nonie Darwish needs to read her Bible, it is her scripture that requires death for apostasy and blasphemy and has instituted honor killing and has teachings of not only “cruelty and violence,” but is also evil, intolerant, backward, naked hate, and misogynistic (shown later).
That Muslim scriptures are devoid of “repentance,” here is a listing of “repent” and “repentance” in the Qur’an:
-Islam accepts repentance from His servants and forgives sins (42:25 also 6:54);
-Islam accepts repentance of who do evil in ignorance (4:17; 9:104; 40:3. As stated in item #77, while Allāh forgives all sins; and while those who sin in ignorance are forgiven, those who continue to commit the same sin again and again are not for-given. And no one would keep on tolerating someone doing the same wrong over and over).
-Islam will change the evil of the repenter (25:70);
-mercy for repenters (4:17, 146: 6:54; 7:153);
-turn to Islam in repentance (11:3; 30:31; 66:8);
-turn to your Lord in repentance and bow to Him before chastisement comes to you (39:54);
-who do wrong and repent thereafter (16:119);
-who repent and make amends (2:160; 3:89);
-who repent/believe/work righteousness (19:60; 25:70; 28:67; 65:11);
-who turn to Islam in repentance (9:112; 50:32-33);
-His mercy encompasses all things and has ordained mercy on Himself (6:12, 54; 7:156).
-Also, Allāh not only invites us to forgive us our sins–(14:10), He implores us in loving, compassionate terms to forgive us; He instructs the Prophet Mohammad to convey to us: “Say, O My servants who have sinned against their souls, despair not of the mercy of Allāh; surely Allāh forgives all sins. Verily, He is Most Forgiving, Ever Merciful”–Qur’an 39:53). Nonie Darwish and all Christendom can ransack and tumble their Bible till Judgment Day they will never find in it an exhortation to equal this profound and sublime invitation from Allāh welcoming sinners to repentance, forgiveness, and eternal bliss–Jannah!
In fact, Islam not only invites us to repentance and forgiveness, Allāh urges Muslims to have a “personal relationship” with Him. Allāh tells us in His Qur’an:
-“Remember Me I will remember you;”(2:152)
-“certainly the remembrance of Allāh is the greatest (force);” (29:45)
– “And trust in Allāh. And Allāh is enough as having charge (of affairs);” (33:3)
-“Surely Allāh will not fail in (His) promise;”(13:31)
-“Allāh is the Friend of the dutiful;” (45:19)
“It may be that “Christian literature is full of repentance,” but as their belief has established, their God is devoid of mercy and justice –loading Adam/Eve’s sin onto the head of even the fetus in the womb and then loading everyone’s sins onto the head of Islam, and having a sinless one killed for sinners (attributing injustice to God and making Him complicit in murder). But these are not revelations from God or teachings of Islam. They are the blasphemous concoctions and falsehood of man.
Blasphemous doctrines and falsehood that pave the way to Hell –to the “everlasting fire” that “never shall be quenched,” the “furnace of fire” in which there shall be “wailing and gnashing of teeth,” as the Christian’s son of God and God aptly projects it –”He that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVER FORGIVENESS, but is in danger of eternal damnation” –(Matt. 18:8; Mark 9:43; Matt. 13:42; Mark 3:29). They are in “danger of eternal damnation” unless he/she repents and follow the “all truth” brought by the Comforter, Mohammad–(John 14:16; 16:13).
While there is life there is repentance! And as no one knows the time of his death one is not to hesitate to repent. Christians (and Jews) salvation lie in them following Islam/Mohammad.
Capital punishment in the Bible, which is the law of Judaism and Christianity:
1. (Apostasy): Those who “secretly” entice another to follow an unknown God are to be stoned to death:
“And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt….If thy brother…entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers…thou shalt surely kill him”–(Deut; 13:5-16).
“If there be found among you…man or woman…. And hath gone and served other gods, and worshiped them, either the sun or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded…..Then thou shalt bring forth that man or that woman …and shalt stone them with stones, till they die”–(Deut; 17:2-5).
2. A “stubborn and rebellious son” is to be stoned to death–(Deut. 21:18-21).
3. (Honor killings): Married damsel without the “token of virginity” is to be stoned to death: “But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you”–(Deut. 22:20-21. Notably, the man with whom the damsel played the “whore” is not stoned).
4. A virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed,” both are to be stoned to death–(Deut. 22:23-24).
5. A witch is to be put to death–(Exodus 22:18).
6. Who curses his father or mother is to be put to death–(Lev. 20:9).
7. Punishment for adultery is death–(Lev. 20:10-12; Deut. 22:22).
8. Homosexuals are to be put to death–(Lev. 20:13).
9. A man who takes a “wife and her mother,” both shall be burnt with fire–(Lev. 20:14).
10. Who commits bestiality is to be put to death–(Lev. 20:15-16).
11. (Blasphemy): “And the Israelitish woman’s son blasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed….And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying…let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.…And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death”–(Lev. 24:11-16, 23).
12. The adulteress is to be stoned–(John 8:3-5). (The Christian’s claim that Jesus forgave the adulteress is baseless–(See Jesus and the adulteress).
The Qur’an abrogates these laws of stoning and death in the Bible. Allāh speaking about abrogating and changing of mess-ages–(Qur’an 2:106; 16:101) does not mean that one verse of the Qur’an abrogates another, as is believed by many. It refers to the replacing of laws/messages of Scriptures previous to the Qur’an. Muhammad Ali has dealt with this topic in his Qur’anic commentary #152–re: Qur’an 2:106. His translation of the Qur’an can be viewed online: www.muslim.org.
Christians and Jews may not be enforcing these Laws of the Bible but their Scriptures and God demand it. And passage into heaven lies in obeying God/following the Commandments.
Cruelty and violence in Christianity. As Christ came to uphold the Judaic law and enjoins his followers to do the same:
-Christianity (and as Christians say Jesus is God, then Jesus) allows enslaving “heathen” neighbor–(Lev. 25:44);
-Christianity allows punishing children for their parents “whoredoms”–(Num. 14:33-34. Also Rev. 2:20-23);
-Christianity allows 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);
-Christianity allows killing disbelievers and even animals–(Deut. 13:12-16); “And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the Lord your God hath delivered them into your hand;” “and Joshua called for all the men of Israel …Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings…And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees.” “So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord God of Israel commanded…And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the Lord God of Israel fought for Israel;” “And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword”–(Josh. 10:19, 24, 26, 40-42; 6:21. Read Josh. chs. 10-12; Num. 21:24, 35; 31:17-18; Deut. 20:16-17; 1 Sam. 15:2-3, for slaughters by Joshua, Moses, and Saul).
-Christianity allows dismembering the wife who tries to defend her husband by grabbing the testicles of her husband’s opponent –(Deut. 25:11-12);
-Christianity allows cannibalism–(Deut. 28:53, 57; 2 Kings 6:28-29);
-Christianity allows 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);
-Christianity allows giving wives into adultery because of their husband’s infidelity–(2 Samuel 12:7-11. For David’s having Uriah killed and taking Uriah’s wife, God said: “Thus saith the Lord, Behold…I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbor, and he shall lie with THY wives in the sight of this sun”).
-Christianity allows feeding mischievous children to 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);
–Christianity allows mutilating “little ones” and ravishing the wives of others–(Psalm 137:9; Isaiah 13:16);
-Christianity allows killing fetus during war–(Isaiah 13:15, 18; Hosea 13:16);
-Christianity allows subjugating women and bondaging their daughters–(Gen. 3:16; Ex. 21:7; Ephesians 5:22-23, 33; 1 Tim. 2:11-12);
-Christianity allows selling children (dealing 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).
-Christianity allows beating women and children with “all gra-vity” to bring them into obedience and into silence and subject-ion–(Prov. 13:24; 19:18; 23:13-14. 1 Tim. 3:4; Heb. 12:6-8. And without doubt every “Christian” husband wants to deliver his stubborn and rebellious wife’s “soul from hell”);
-Christianity allows burning of daughters who commit “whore-dom”–(Gen 38:24; Lev. 21:9);
-Christianity allows killing/stoning/burning of blasphemers; apostates; married damsel without the “tokens of virginity;” the virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed;” stubborn and rebellious sons; the adulteress; the witch; one who curses his father or mother; the adulterer; homosexuals; the man who commits bestiality; and a man who takes a “wife and her mother”–(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; Ex. 22:18; Lev. 20:9; 10-12; Deut. 22:22; Lev. 20:13; 15-16; Lev. 20:14);
-Christianity allows Christians to bondage fellow Christians–Ephesians 6:5; Colossians 3:22; as only Christians honor Christ as God/son of God);
-Christianity allows killing those who do not agree with them: “He that is not with me is against me” (and a person can be neutral); “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should rule over them, bring hither, and slay them before me” (though these enemies may not militate against him)–(Matt. 12:30; Luke 19:27);
-Christianity allows throwing women out of her marriage and home just for “some uncleanness”–(Deut. 24:1-4).
-Christianity allows killing all males and matron women and taking prepubescent 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…the men of war had taken SPOIL (BOOTY), EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF”–(Numbers 31:1-53).
That Christianity is evil, intolerant, backward, naked hate, and brutal and rabid misogyny; Christians lie on God, they lie on Jesus, they blame the Devil; and the Gospels portray Jesus as liar, hypocrite, and fraud:
–Christianity has no Divine foundation –these cardinal doc-trines of Christianity –inherited sin, vicarious atonement, Divine sonship, and Trinity– were not revealed by God: they are not expressed in the Bible. As they delineate 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 (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).
–Christianity has no prophetic foundation –these cardinal doctrines were not taught by Jesus. These doctrines are assumed and propagated as Divine truths.
–Christianity has no logical foundation –God being the First and Creator of all could not have a mother or be born; God having no consort could not have a son; God being Omnipotent and Omniscient and Omnipresent does not need to take form(s) to accomplish any matter; God being Just would not suffer the innocent for the guilty (even human governments strive not to punish the innocent for the guilty); God being merciful and forgiving does not need any “satisfaction,” least of all human blood, in order to forgive sins.
Christians put fantastic emphasis on Jesus asking God to forgive those who put him on the cross –though it is intriguing why they need to be forgiven if they were fulfilling scriptures; and also when he indicted God as having forsaken him [but God answered his prayers, as the prayers of the righteous are always answered and God always answered Jesus’ prayers, and saved him from death]; and most significantly when he considered non-Jews, which the Romans were, as “dogs” and “swine” who do not know what they follow and that salvation is of the Jews; and when he preached in parables so these “dogs” and “swine” would not understand and be saved–(Luke 23:34; Matt; 26:36-44;James 5:16; Psalm 22:24; 34:15-19; John 9:31; Matt; 7:8-9;John 11:41-42; Matt. 27:46; Matt. 7:6; 15:26; John 4:21; Mark 4:9-12).
In contrast, Allāh tells us that angels pray for the forgiveness of all mankind and the Prophet Mohammad not only forgave his rabid enemies of twenty-three grueling years upon his triumph over them at Makkah but also prayed for his enemy–(Qur’an 42:5; Bokhari Vol. 6; #194, 197). Gandhi is also said to have made the gesture of forgiveness to his assassin. If asking for for-giveness for one’s assailant justifies worship of the victim, Christians should be worshipping not only Mo-hammad but also Gandhi. And perhaps even anti-apar-theid icon Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu are to be worshipped for forgiving their oppressor(s). In fact, if Jesus is to be worshipped because he asked for forgiveness of those who transgressed against him, everyone who forgave his and her assailant is to be wor-shipped. Notably, Jesus did not forgive his enemies; he asked God to forgive them; Jesus commanded that his enemies be brought to him and slain –(Luke 19:27). Unlike Mohammad who actually forgave his enemies and asked God to forgive the dead one.
-Christianity is repugnant to reason –God, the ultimate in Purity and Perfection, would not confine Himself in the womb of a woman He created, spend nine months inside the unclean abode (leaving the universe without a God) nourish on her liquid, pass through the various stages –from a sperm into a clot, a lump of flesh, taking on bones, and into a babe– emerge from her vagina, suckle her breast, have Himself pin in diapers, be circumcise, eat, drink, sleep, and answer the calls of nature, and nail to a “pole” (which is blasphemy of the highest order). Since a son is one that succeeds his father, God being the Creator and the First and Last and the Eternal could not have and does not need a son (or daughter) to succeed Him. (Son of God is a metaphor for goodness. The Biblical God has a legion of sons and daughters; even Satan seems to be son of God; as well as “peace-makers” which would include atheists. Even David is crowned “begotten son of God: “the Lord came unto Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David….I will be his father, and he shall be my son;” “I will declare the decree: the Lord saith unto me (David), thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee”–(2 Samuel 7:4, 5, 14. Psalm 2:7). Why then single out Jesus and crown him God’s “only begotten son?
–Christianity is evil –it teaches to hate parents and family; sends sword, fire, and division instead of peace, love, and unity: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword;” “I am come to send FIRE on the earth;” “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”–(Matt. 10:34; Luke 12:49, 51-53); “If any man come to me, and HATE NOT his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple”–(Luke 14:26).(What kind of a God and son of God is this? And what manner of “love” is this? Mohammad forbids us from disobeying parents and exhorts us to have good relations even with our pagan parents–Muslim Vol. 3, #’s 4257, 4260; Bokhari Vol. 3, #789).
Christianity curses a helpless and blameless fig tree–(Mark 11:12-21); has disregard for the property of others: sends devil into swine causing their death and loss of property of the owners–(Matt. 8:28-33); to agree with adversary, which would include bearing false witness–(Matt. 5:25); go another mile with your compeller: so after the compeller have you rustle Jane’s hens you point out to him that John has a set of well-rounded hogs or that he can knock off the corner store as well–(Matt. 5:41); servants are to obey masters as they obey Christ/ God, instead of freeing the poor souls–(Ephesians 6:5; Colossians 3:22); and the monumental sin of being disrespectful to mothers and disowning parents and siblings: “Woman, what have I to do with thee”–(John 2:4. Jesus is here addressing his mother as “Woman” plus the rude expression “what have I to do to thee”); “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”–Matt. 12:46-50). 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).
–Christianity is intolerant –it commands burning of daughters who play the “whore”–(Gen. 38:24; Lev. 21:9); killing of apos-tates–(Deut; 13:5-16; 17:2-5); the rebellious son–(Deut. 21:18-21); damsels that do not bleed on their wedding night (honor killing)–(Deut. 22:20-21); the adulterating damsel and her mate–(Deut. 22:23-24); the witch–(Ex. 22:18); one who curses his fat-her or mother–(Lev. 20:9); the adulterer–(Lev. 20: 10-12; Deut. 22:22; John 8:35); homosexuals–(Lev. 20:13); a man who takes a “wife and her mother”–(Lev. 20:14); and the blasphemer –(Lev. 24:11-16, 23); and orders to not preach to non-Jews: “Go NOT into way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel”–(Matt. 10:5-6); “I pray for them (JEWS): I pray NOT for the world”–(John 17:9. Mohammad preached to all and prayed even for his dead enemy).
–Christianity is backward –it teaches to give away fortunes; not to store treasures on earth; God will send as He sends for the birds: thus there is no need for knowledge and progress–(Matt. 6:25-34). No wonder the Church, as its history attests, has always been an enemy to knowledge (see ARABIA AND NON-MUSLIMS for details).
–Christianity is naked hate –it sanctions slavery–(Lev. 25:44. And Christ came to uphold the Mosaic law–Matt. 5:17-18); re-gards non-Jews as “dogs” and “swine;” those not with Christians as being against Christians (and a person can be neutral); and to slay enemies against their rule (though they may not militate against her. Here we have people who are the “image” of God, some of whom may be God-fearing and otherwise humanitarian, are insulted because of their nationality –a factor they had no choice in. They are excluded as being “dogs” and “swine” then they are expected to be with them; and when they are not with them, not by choice but by rejection, they are further castigated as being against Christianity –they are forced to be against Christianity then they are charged as being against Christianity. Talk about catch 55. On top of that these “dogs” and “swine” are considered enemies decreed to be slain–(Matt. 7:6; 15:26; 12:30; Luke 19:27); speaks in parables so non-Jews will not understand and be forgiven: what a ghastly hor-ribly sickening thing to do–(Mark 4:9-12).
-Christians lie on God –that God incarnated Himself as Jesus; that God gives everyone to Judgment Day Adam’s sin then loads everyone’s sins on Jesus’ head (attributing injustice to God), and say that God sent Jesus to be killed for these sins (making God complicit in murder); they forged His Book and say it is God’s Word (see Bible corrupt & obsolete).
–Christians lie on Jesus –by making forgeries in the Bible and feeding them into Jesus’ mouth; and teaching doctrines that Christ did not teach. (See Bible corrupt & obsolete).
–Christians blame the Devil –by saying that the Devil pre-empted the prophets’ prophecies about the advent of Jesus by having pagans copied Jesus’ life and mission centuries before Jesus’ birth. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din after revealing the legion of “virgin born” sons, notes:
“In this connection Justin Martyr again comes with the same interesting apology when writing to the Emperor Adrian (Hadrian?) the Devil being the only prop on which he could lay his hands to strengthen him in his beliefs. He says:––“It having reached the Devil’s ears that the prophets had foretold the coming of Christ (the Son of God) he set the heathen poets to bring forward a great many who should be called the sons of Jove. The Devil laying his scheme in this, to get man to imagine that the true history of Christ was of the same character as the prodigious fables related of the sons of Jove….By declaring the Logos, the first begotten of God, Our Master Jesus, to be born of a virgin, without any human mixture, we (Christians) say no more in this than what you (Pagans) say of those whom you style the sons of Jove. For you need not be told what a parcel of sons the writers most in vogue among you assign to Jove. (Just as the Bible assigns a legion of sons to God)….As to the Son of God, called Jesus, should we allow him to be no more than man (note well, it is Christians who “allow” Jesus to be “more than man”), yet the title of the son of God is very justifiable upon account of his wisdom (then this “wisdom“ should make Einstein at least super son of God), considering that you (Pagans) have your Mercury in worship under the title of the Word, a messenger of God….As to his (Jesus) being born of a virgin, you have your Perseus to balance that….if Jupiter could send a parcel of sons out of virgin mothers; the Father in heaven assuredly could do the same at least in our case.””6 (True He could, but did He?) If this is how easy it is for the Devil to “shanghai” the Christian God’s purpose, the Devil must be doing the “tango”7 throwing “a” voice around,8 giving visions of the non-existent “Virgin,”9 and having Christians speak in yet to be identified “tongues.”10 (Did the Devil also “set the heathen poets” to copy the Passion Play so that Jesus’ Passion Play should mimic the Passion Play of Baal?) And yet Christians expect to sit with Jesus “on the right hand of God”–(Mark 16:19). (See Christians Praying For Muslims; Jesus or Mohammad-greatest, Pastor James Mc Donald; Jesus or Mohammad-best system).
Jesus–a Biblical hypocrite: Jesus says leave the dead to bury the dead but he resurrected Lazarus, the widow’s son and Jairus’ daughter–(Matt. 8:22; John 11:43-44; Luke 7:12-15; 8:41-56. And even false Christs and false prophets can perform miracles: Mark 13:22); Jesus says bless them that curse you but he cursed a helpless fig tree;it is a sin to curse a thing that has no control over itself–(Matt. 5:44; Mark 11:12-21); Jesus says love your enemies and forgive seventy times seven but he ordered his enemies be slain–(Matt. 5:44; 18:22; Luke 19:27); Jesus says love your neighbor but he labels people “dogs” and “swine” and spoke in parables so that they would not understand and be saved: “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 anytime they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them”(what a horrible, despicable, thing to do; even worse for a God/son of God to do)–(Matt. 22:39; 7:6; Mark 4:10-12); Jesus says honor parents but he disowns his mother, this is not only hypocrisy but one of the worst sins–(Matt. 19:19; 12:46-50.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); Jesus says give the other cheek but commanded his followers to sell their garments and buy swords–(Matt. 5:39; Luke 22:36); Jesus says go another mile with your compeller but he boots his compellers –the bird-sellers and money-changers– out of the temple–(Matt. 5:41; 21:12); Jesus says bear not false witness but also says to quickly agree with your adversary lest you are thrown in jail (and which agreement with your adversary may include bearing false wit-ness)–(Matt. 20:18; 5:25).
Jesus a Biblical liar: Jesus told his followers: “Go ye up unto this feast, for my time is not yet full come,” “But when his brethren were gone up, then went he alsoup unto the feast,not openly, but as it were in secret”–(John 7:8-10. Clearly, Jesus did not want to go with them, and lied that he would be going later; and soon as they had gone from him he left for the feast).
Jesus–a Biblical fraud: Jesus said no man hath seen God–(John 5:37); but many saw God:
-Jacob wrestled with God, and declared “I have seen God face to face”–(Genesis 32:24-30);
-“Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel…saw the God of Israel;” also “the nobles of the Children of Israel…saw God”–(Exodus 24:9-11);
-Isaiah saw God: “I saw also the Lord…for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts”–(Isa.6:1-5. A true God/son of God, as Christians claim Jesus to be, would know that these people have seen God).
-Jesus says: “no man hath ascended up to heaven”–(John 3:13); yet “Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven”–(2 Kings 2:1, 11); and “Enoch was translated that he should not see death… God had translated him”–(Heb. 11:5; Gen. 5:24). If Kings and Hebrews knew that Elijah and Enoch went to heaven then definitely it is expected that the Christians’ God and “son of God,” Jesus, would know that these individuals have “ascended up to heaven.” (Whether it is First heaven or Seventh heaven, heaven is heaven).
Thus, from the Biblical perspective, Christians are following a hypocrite, a liar, and a fraud.
Christianity is misogynistic –Sanctions selling daughters into bondage; commands that woman be ruled over by her husband; and for her to be in silence and subjection; regards her as ‘transgressor,’ betrayer, and ‘defiler’ of man; as an object of sexual release for the man; she can be beaten as a child can, to keep her from hell; keeps her in marriage misery all her life or risk being labeled “adulteress”; she can be discarded if her husband thinks she is unclean (though it seems he can be as unclean as sewer she has no right to divorce him); she can be severely punished for walking provocatively. Here are the Biblical blessings on women:
▪ “And if a man SELL HIS DAUGHTERto be a maidservant”–(Exodus 21:7).
▪ “Unto the woman He (God) said….thy desire shall be to THY HUSBAND, and HE SHALL RULE OVER THEE”–(Genesis 3:16).
▪ and “Let the woman learn in SILENCE with ALL SUBJECTION. But I SUFFER NOT A WOMAN TO TEACH, NOR TO USURP AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN but to be IN SILENCE–(1Tim. 2:11-12); “WIVES, SUBMIT YOURSELVES UNTO YOUR OWN HUSBANDS, AS UNTO THE LORD” “As the Church is subject unto Christ, SO LET THE WIVES BE TO THEIR OWN HUSBANDS IN EVERY THING” – “And the wife see that SHE REVERENCE HER HUSBAND”–(Ephesians 5:22-23, 33. The man being told to love his wife does not mean she is free from bondage. People also “love” their dogs and other pets and even bequeath fortunes to them. And Paul also instructs masters to be kind to their slaves–Ephesians 6:9; Col. 4:1).
▪ “And Adam was not deceived BUT THE WOMAN BEING DECEIVED WAS IN THE TRANSGRESSION”–(1 Tim. 2:14. Allah tells us that both Adam and Eve were deceived; and that they were forgiven–Qur’an 2:36-37; 7:20-22)
▪ “he (man) is the IMAGE AND GLORY OF GOD: but the WOMAN IS THE GLORY OF THE MAN. For the man is NOT of the woman; but the WOMAN OF THE MAN”–(1 Cor. 11:7-8), and “Neither was the man created for the woman; BUT THE WOMAN FOR THE MAN–(1 Cor. 11:9), “It is GOOD for a MAN NOT TO TOUCH A WOMAN. Nevertheless, TO AVOID FORNICATION, let everyman have his own wife”–(1 Cor 7:1-2. Allāh tells us that He created man and woman of the same substance and that they are mates of the other, has established marriage between them, that he might find peace and comfort in her, and has put between them love and compassion; that men and women are friends and protectors of the other; that husbands and wives are garments to the other and have mutual rights and spiritual equality, and will reside together in Gardens in the next life–(Qur’an 4:1, 3-4, 25; 7:189; 16:72; 25:54; 30:21; 9:71-72; 2:187; 2:228; 3:194, 197; 4:124; 24:30-31; 33:35; 36:56; 43:70; 49:13; 57:12, 18, 19).
▪ “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is NOT PERMITTED UNTO THEM TO SPEAK; but they are COMMANDED to be under obedience, as also saith the LAW. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at HOME: FOR IT IS A SHAME FOR WOMEN TO SPEAK IN THE CHURCH”–(1 Cor. 14:34-35. Today this law is violated and women are preachers in the Church). Clearly, permission to employ whatever methods are necessary to “rule” over the wife and to bring/keep her in “silence and in “all subjection’ are inherent and en-shrined in these words of God and Paul. To take the mat-ter further, authority for employing corporal punishment to discipline the rebellious wife who does not desire to be “ruled” over in “silence” and “all subjection” may be gleaned from the Biblical verses on child-rearing. God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, then Jesus) says: “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes;” “Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying;” “Withhold not correction from the child: for if you beat-est him with the rod, he shall not die, Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell” (and without doubt every “Christian” husband wants to deliver his stubborn/rebellious wife’s “soul from hell”)–(Proverbs 13:24; 19:18; 23:13-14). A Bishop is to be “One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with ALL GRAVITY”–(1 Tim. 3:4). Even God beats and scourges His sons into obedience and those who are not are “bastards”: “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be WITHOUT CHASTISEMENT, whereof all are partakers, then are ye BASTARDS, and NOT SONS” –(Hebrews 12:6-8). Thus one can imagine what latitude the Christian husband is allowed to bring/ keep his wayward wife in all subjection and for him to become a “Bishop” and even to get into heaven to sit “on the right hand of God.” A survey of wives of all Christian sects can be conducted to find out how many were “beaten” into “silence” and “all subjection.” Surely, not all the “battered” wives in Western countries are non-Christians.
▪ Perhaps the ultimate Christian indignity towards women is during her menstrual period. He is forbidden to eat, drink, and sleep in the same bed with her; in fact, he is not allowed to touch anything she touches. The Biblical God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, Jesus) says: “When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. Everything also on which she lies during her menstruation impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. And anyone who touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. And who-ever touches any thing on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. Whether it be on the bed or on the thing on which she is sitting, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until evening. And if a man actually lies with her, so that her menstrual impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean”–(Lev. 15:19-24). Contrast this Christian’s treating the menstruating woman like a leper to that of Islam in which Allāh says about menstruation that “they are a hurt and a pollution. So keep away from women in their courses, and do not approach them until they are clean”–(Qur’an. 2:222). This injunction to not approach the menstruating woman does not mean that she is unclean; only that the flow is unclean and to not have sex with them. This is made clear by the Prophet Mohammad who is reported to have said in explanation to the above quoted verse of the Qur’an: “Associate with them (wives) in the houses and do everything except sexual intercourse”–(Abu Dawud Vol. 1, #258). And, “‘Aisha said: I would eat flesh from a bone when I was menstru-ating, then hand it over to the Prophet (may peace be upon him) and he would put his mouth where I had put my mouth; I would drink, then hand it over to him, and he would put his mouth (at the place) where I drank”–(Ibid. #259). Again, “‘Aishah said: The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) would recline on my lap when I was menstruating, then recite the Qur’an”–(Ibid. #260). And the classic: “‘Aishah said: The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) said to me: Get me the mat from the mosque. I said: I am menstruating. The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) then replied: Your menstruation is not in your hands”–(Ibid. #261. Also #’s 267-273). And whereas the Christian who has sex with his menstruating wife is “unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean,” the Muslim who has sex with his menstruating wife (while it is unlawful to do so) needs only give charity–(Abu Dawud Vol. 1, #’s 264-266).
▪ And the Christian woman’s marriage misery: “I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of un-chastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery;” “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and he who marries one who is divor-ced from a husband commits adultery”–(Matt. 5:32; Luke 16:18. Unlike Allāh/Islam which allows amicable divorce when the parties can no longer live together the Christian woman is doomed to a life of marriage misery and to wilt her (youthful and beautiful) self in a loveless and even brutal marriage or risk being labeled “adult-eress” (who are required to be stoned to death in Judeo-Christian law) from earth all the way to next world. And so does the man who should marry her. And whereas Allāh allows a divorced couple [who were married and divorced from their second or more partners] to remarry each other the Bible does not and considers the woman as being “defiled” [but the man is not “defiled;” talk about rabid misogyny]. And while the Muslim woman can initiate divorce, there is no mention of the Christian woman being able to do so. Here is what the Bible says about the divorced couple remarrying (and as Christians say Jesus is God, Jesus forbids the former couple remarrying): “When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favor in his eyes, because he had FOUND SOME UNCLEANNESS in her: then let him WRITE HER A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT, and give it in her hand, and SEND HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE….And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand….Her former husband which sendeth her away, may NOT take her again to be his wife, after that she is DEFILED; for that is ABOMINATION BEFORE THE LORD”–(Deut. 24:1-4. Talk about “easy” divorce. This takes the crown. Interestingly, whereas Deut. [Moses] says a man can divorce his wife if he finds some “uncleanness” in her, Jesus, the Christians God and son of God, says that if anyone divorces his wife for any reason except “un-chastity” makes her an ‘adulterer’ yet he [Jesus] tells his people to do whatever the Scribes and Pharisees bid them do because they sit in Moses’ seat; and the Scribes and Pharisees follow the Mosaic law which says you can put away your wife for some “uncleanness.” Talk about a circle of confusion. Again the Mosaic law teaches an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but Jesus says to give the other cheek instead, yet he says to do what the Scribes and Pharisees says to do and the Scribes and Pharisees follow the Mosaic law which requires an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Another circle of confusion. The contra-dictions in Christianity are “staggering.” Matt. 23:2; Ex. 21:24; Matt. 5:38-39).
Regarding the saying that woman is “defiler” of man, the Book of Revelation (7:4-8; 14:1-4; and Matt. 19:28) states that 144,000 who will be JEWS (non-Jews, note well), and will all be MEN–consisting of 12,000 from each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel– will sit with Jesus in the next life judging the Twelve Tribes of Israel. About this 144,000 it is said: “These are they which were not DEFILED WITH WOMEN; for they are VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb (Jesus) whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.” (God created man and woman to “fill the earth” and instilled in them passions for companionship to affect this; but Christians view this Divine scheme as sacrilege. A classic woman-hater). Regarding the 144,000 who will be with Jesus, one Christian apologist on the Internet suffered tremendous labor pains trying to baptize 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 itself. 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.”11 In other words, when a man takes a wife his caring for God is compromised 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).”12 These Biblical teachings show that sexual contact with a woman “defiles” the man spiritually; and no amount of the Christian apologist’s 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” constraints, 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.” (See Christianity-144,000 virgins & Jesus).
▪ The Bible and the Christian’s God (Jesus) condemns woman as a betrayer of man. The Bible says: “Behold, everyone that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee (Jerusalem), saying, As is the mother, SO IS HER DAUGHTER”–(Ezek. 16:44). As Christians view woman as the “transgressor” (by virtue of her/Eve violating the command of God and eating of the forbidden fruit), and as she betrayed the man/Adam by giving him the fruit to eat, then according to this teaching of the Bible, every woman is a betrayer of man. In fact, according to Christianity every woman to be born and all the way to the Resurrection, is a betrayer of man. (Islam these teachings on women, see Qur’an-abrogation & collecting; Islam-women; Islam-Shari’ah).
▪ The Christian’s God (and as Christian’s say Jesus is God, Jesus) even took a peek at the Jewish daughters “private parts” because of their flaunting: “Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their SECRET PARTS”–Isaiah 3:16-17).

Matt. 3:16-17 states that after Jesus was baptized “a voice” came from heaven saying that Jesus “is my beloved Son.” Christians believe that this “voice” is the voice of God; yet Jesus says “And the Father… Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape”–(John 5:37). Since the “voice” of God has never been heard at any time, to whom then does this “voice” that came from heaven belongs? Is it the “voice” of Satan claiming Jesus as his “beloved Son” –Who other than Satan has such power?
