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.
JESUS GIVES ETERNAL LIFE
In the Bible God calls on man to govern his faith by reason and Jesus exhorts his followers to seek truth which will set them free from falsehood:“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”–(Isaiah 1:18);1 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”–(Gospel of John, 8:32). Unless Christians prefer blind faith, Christians are to read their Bible and think for themselves so they would not be mislead/ deceived.
The Christian preacher takes one verse out of context and conjoins it to others to project Jesus as “ransom” for mankind’s alleged inherited sin.
One notable instance is the reading of the verse where a man came to Jesus, inquiring, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life”–(Matthew 19:16; Mark 10:17).
Rather than read Jesus’ reply to the person, the preacher jumps to John 10:28, quoting Jesus in another situation where Jesus explained to some skeptics that, “I give unto them (his followers) eternal life.” Which renders the preacher’s sermon as, one came to Jesus and asked, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life…I give unto them eternal life, Jesus says. Conveying the impression that Jesus’ “I give unto them eternal life” was Jesus’ response to the young man.
Then the preacher propounds John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten2 son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”
Which, when all three statements are put together, projects that Jesus gives “eternal; life” through his dying for the sins of the world:
one came to Jesus and asked, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life…I give unto them eternal life…For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (Unless the preacher is devoted to benefit rather than belief, he must yet expect to sit with Jesus “on the right hand of God”).
Apart from the fact, as shown in various pages on this site, not only are there no TRINITY, INHERITED SIN AND VICARIOUS ATONEMENT, Jesus’ answer to the questioner is diametrically opposed to the preacher’s claim. Here is the man’s question to Jesus and Jesus’ reply (and note well, Jesus denies he is God):
“Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life”
“And he (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is NONE good but ONE, that is, GOD: but if thou wilt enter into life, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS (brought by Moses)…Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”–(Matthew 19:16-19; Mark 10: 17-19).
This is how Jesus gave his followers “eternal life” (John 10:28), by instructing them what to do and avoid –to follow the Mosaic Law (until the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and “abide for ever”3). In this respect all prophets give “eternal life.”
Clearly, Jesus’ water for “eternal life” is not that which the Christian shepherd feeds his sheep (and the non-Christians in his audience). Such Christians are a disgrace to Christ; a mockery of the Lord to whom they interject, Praise the Lord! Halleluiah!
Unless such preachers are “Christians” for benefit rather than for belief, are these Christians not fearful of the “eternal damnation” which Christ warned them about?: the “everlasting” “furnace of fire” that “never shall be quenched” in which is “wailing and gnashing of teeth”–(Mark 3:29; 9:43; Matthew 18:8; 13:42).
Jesus’ teachings belie the Church doctrines of inherited sin and vicarious atonement. Jesus taught:
-“I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to REPENTANCE” (NOT to belief in inherited sin and vicarious atonement/crucifixion)–Matt. 9:13. This is how Jesus [and all prophets] saved his people from their sin, by calling them to repentance);
-“I say unto you, there is JOY in the presence of the angels of God over one SINNER that REPENTETH”–(Luke 15:10).
-“For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven”–(Matthew 5:20);
-“If thou wilt enter into life keep the command-ments”–(Matthew 19:16-19. As stated, this is how Jesus gave his followers “eternal; life”–John 10:28, by teaching them what to follow and avoid);
-“The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: ALL therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do”–(Matt. 23:2. Scribes and Pharisees do not teach inherited sin, vicarious atonement, and crucifixion).
That the “wages of sin is death,” inherited sin and vicarious atonement were devised by Paul and institutionalized by the Church 300 years after Jesus. M.A. Faruqui notes in his revealing book The Crumbling Of The Cross:
“The Christian Church had caused a General Council of the Church dignitaries to be appointed in A.D. 325 in which certain doctrines were made to be the foundation of the Christian Church, and belief therein was made essential for one to be Christian. This is known as the Nicene Creed. Under this, the confirmed doctrine of Atonement may be explained as follows:
(i) Adam (and Eve) committed a Sin, and this Sin was inherited by their descendants.
(ii) The attribute of “Justice” in God demanded that a sin must be punished, for the wage of Sin is death.
(iii) God sent his son Jesus Christ to this world, so that he may die on the Cross an “accursed” death, and after spending some time in Hell, atone for the Sins of the human race, and then be resurrected again.” (pp. 109-110).
“St. Paul had thought of and adopted the doctrine of Jesus Christ having died on the Cross and being resurrected afterwards, and this became the confirmed doctrine of the Christian Church. But the investigations made about the imprints of Christ’s body on the Shroud (of Turin) put the Church in difficulties. Pope John XXIII had made a proclamation on 30 June 1960, which was printed in an issue of the Vatican newspaper, Osservator Romano dated 2nd July 1960, under the title “Complete Salvation through the Blood of Jesus Christ,” in which the Pope informed and directed all the Catholic Bishops to believe and to propagate that the complete salvation of the human race lies through the blood of Jesus Christ, and that the death of Jesus Christ is not essential for this purpose.”(Ibid. p. 109). (This is Papal’s verbal gymnastics. How can salvation be through the “blood” of Christ when there was no “blood” of Jesus Christ? and Christianity stands on the foundation of the “blood” of Jesus Christ –of “inherited sin” and vicarious atonement; and Christians are preaching to the world that Jesus Christ “died” for sin inherited from Adam?
Note well, that “salvation of the human race lies through the blood of Jesus Christ” is the Pope’s [Christian’s] teaching; it is NOT God’s teaching; it is NOT Jesus’ teaching. What more proof is needed that CHRISTIANITY IS A FAKE?)
How can salvation lie through the “blood” of Jesus Christ when Jesus Christ, the Christian’s God and Son of God, taught that “salvation” lies in following the Mosaic Law [till the coming of the COMFORTER who will bring “all truth” and “abide forever”?] And as salvation lies in following the Mosaic Law THERE IS NO NEED FOR VICARIOUS ATONEMENT! THERE IS NO NEED FOR CHRIST! 4
Even the inherited-sin and vicarious-atonement invention is lopsided. The Bible says: “Adam was NOT deceived BUT THE WOMAN BEING DECEIVED WAS IN THE TRANSGRESSION”–(1Tim. 2:14; Gen. 3:6, 12).
Since Eve/woman was the transgressor how is it that “sin” is “inherited” through Adam’s/man’s sperm and not through the transgressor Eve’s/woman’s ovum? More so, as Christians view woman as “the devil’s gate-way”:
““Do you know,” says Tertullian, when addressing Women, “that you are each Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age; the guilt, of necessity, must live too. You are the devil’s gate-way; you are the unsealer of that tree; you are the first deserter of the Divine Law; you destroyed as easily God’s image.”… She is “the organ of the devil,” “a scorpion ever ready to sting,” “the poisonous asp,” “the malice of the dragon.” These are some of the blessings that Woman received from persons of exalted position in the Church, such as St. Bernard, St. Anthony, St. Jerome, St. Cyprian, and St. Paul.”5 (The Christian’s God should have sent His “only begotten” daughter to die for sins).(For more on women see CHRISTIANITY-WOMEN).
Christians are to ask themselves: “how can I go to heaven by following doctrines God did not reveal?
Blind faith may be blissful but it is no passport to paradise.
“There is no God but Allāh;
Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh!”
Even if one has no intention of doing any good he/she should not hold in worship any but Allāh. While we are alive we have the grand opportunity to turn to Allāh. When we die –and no one knows when– there is no second chance. This grand opportunity evaporates like a dewdrop in Hell.
Allāh God invites us to forgive us our sins–(Qur’an 14:10). And He implores us in loving, compassionate terms through His illustrious Prophet and mercy to the world, 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).
Allāh loves us.
Allāh wants to guide us.
Allāh wants us to be pure.
Allāh wants us to have a life in Paradise.
What is holding you back from BAPTIZING
with Allāh, the Best of Baptizers?
1. And Allāh God exhorts us in His Qur’an: “Call to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in thebest manner”–(Qur’an 16: 125).
2. Ahmed Deedat has shown in his booklet Is the Bible God’s Word? that in the RSV Bible; the word “BEGOTTEN” of “begotten son” of John 3:16, has been “excised;” also the word “VIRGIN” in Isaiah 7:14 has been replaced with the phrase “a young woman;” 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.” (Christians expunging their “Word of God”?) 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 and uninformed native into eating the “body” and drinking the mythical “blood” of Christ –SPIRITUAL CANNIBALISM. This is probably the lowest depth of spiritual depravity). (For more adulterating of the Bible see BIBLE-CORRUPT & OBSOLETE).

4. For more details about the scientific investigation on the Shroud of Turin see JESUS-INHERITED SIN TO ASCENSION, chapter on Crucifixion. Notably, 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 teachings 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 temporary and limited to their people. Mohammad being the world Prophet–(Qur’an 7:158; 21:107; 34:28) having brought the best Message 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) surpasses all prophets. Though these prophets are to be honored, all are now to follow Mohammad, as taught by Jacob, Moses and Jesus; and required by God–(Genesis 49:10; Deuteronomy 18: 18-19; John 14:16; 16:13).
