JESUS-FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
“Let all the sins that were committed in this world fall on me, that the world may be delivered”–Buddha.A
Perhaps the most over-abused verse of the Bible is that of the Gospel of John chapter 3 verse 16, which Christians quote like a mindless parrot in their effort to exalt Jesus Christ as vicarious atoner –a “ransom for sins”– to lure uninformed and unthinking people into drinking this mythical blood of Jesus Christ. .
The Gospel of John chapter 3 verse 16 says: “For God so loved the world, that He GAVE His only begotten1 son that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
How Christians conclude that this verse is about crucifixion of Christ is a “mystery” (like the “mystery” of the “senseless God-dishonoring doctrine” of TRINITY that can come only from the mind of “Satan the Devil”).
This verse by itself is meaningless. Read it again and analyze it to produce a case of “crucifixion.”
This verse is NOT, and could NOT be, about crucifixion. The verse is saying that God “GAVE” (past tense) Jesus; God could not “gave” Jesus as crucifixion when Jesus was NOT yet crucified.2 God “gave” Jesus something so the people would “believeth” in him. So what did God “gave” Jesus?
To glean the meaning of this verse of John 3:16 it needs to be taken in its context. When taken in its context, from verses 2-15, it shows that Jesus was having a conversation with Nicodemus who concluded that from his miracles Jesus could only be a man from God.
Jesus answered that man must undergo spiritual birth before he can see the kingdom of God. Jesus then compared himself to the brass serpent Moses lifted up in the wilderness; which serpent had the power to preserve the life of those bitten by a snake–(Num. 21:9), for “as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up” –the allusion being, as the serpent had power to preserve life of the afflicted on account of their belief on it, likewise, Jews who believed in his (Jesus’) miracles and accept him as a prophet from God–(John 8:28)–would also be saved: “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life”–(John 3:14-15). Then came the verse of John 3:16 which, when expressed in the context of this discussion would convey the full meaning of:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son the power to perform miracles that whosoever believeth in him to be from God through these works of miracles should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Miracles were necessary because the people believed only in miracles: “Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe” –(John 4:48).
To infer that John 3:16 is about crucifixion is to inject a meaning that is alien to the subject. That Jesus is saying God “gave” him to be “crucified” for sinners and for him to pray pitifully to be spared from this glory and to indict God as having “forsaken” him must be the blackest degree of disgrace (and blasphemy) exampled by a son of God in Scriptural history:“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”–(Matthew 27:46).
A soldier who refuses to fight in an illegal and unjust war is hounded and charged and jailed as a deserter and a disgrace. Consider then, the “son of God” entrusted with the lofty honor of dying for the sins of the world; for him to pray to tears to be spared this glory and to charge God as having forsaken him must be the “Mother” of all disgraces.
(Not even Jonah in the whale’s belly made such a grotesque and ignominious expression as that of the Christian’s God and Son of God but rather prayed to God–Jonah 2:1-10. Even the 1400’s Viennese Jews behaved more honorably than the Christian’s God and Son of God, choosing to die in the Christian inferno than desecrate their Holy Sheema and kiss the useless and unGodly crucifix.3 For all their stiffneckedness and their straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel, Allāh God, must be well-pleased with these Jews in their steadfastness to Divine Purity).
According to the Bible Jesus prayed so pitifully in the garden of Gethsemane to be spared from death that “his sweat was as it were great drops of blood;” and he charged God as having “forsaken” him: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”–(Matthew 26:36; Luke 22: 42-44; 27:46).
This obliterates Christians’ claim that Jesus gave his life willingly for sinners.
Intriguingly, whereas Matthew has Jesus charging God as having “forsaken” him, Luke 23:34 has Jesus saying: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” This must be the acme of absurdity. Why do “they” need to be forgiven if by killing Jesus they were fulfilling scripture?
Instead of asking God to “forgive” them, Jesus should have beseech God to give “them” mansions in His house.
-There is no place in the Bible where GOD or JESUS says mankind inherited sin from Adam –that God puts the sin of Adam onto BABIES and in their MOTHERS’ WOMBS and worldwide for at least five thou-sand years now and until the Resurrection. (That mankind inherited sin from Adam and that God sent Jesus to be killed for this sin were devised by Paul, who was a liar and a forger. See ALLAH & JESUS OR PAUL?)
-There is no place in the Bible where GOD or JESUS says God loaded everyone’s alleged “inherited sin” onto Jesus and sent Jesus to be killed for this “sin” –that whereas MAN is to forgive his transgressor seventy times seven and go another mile with his compeller and give the other cheek to his assailant as Jesus said, but God cannot forgive even one-seventieth or go another mile with His compeller or give the other cheek to His assailant; and that God would not only load the sin of a MAN (Adam) onto BABIES in their MOTHERS’ WOMBS and worldwide and for at least five thousand years now and until the Resurrection but that God is so devoid of mercy that He had Jesus, an innocent man, savagely beaten and killed to free us of a “sin” committed by Adam.
Rather than being a demonstration of “love” for world this can be said to be a demonstration of monumental and grotesque injustice.
-To have someone killed is to be complicit in murder. To say God had Jesus killed is to make God complicit in murder (which is blasphemy). To have one person killed for the crime of another(s) is an injustice. But God says: “The father shall NOT die for the children, neither shall the children die for the fathers, but EVERY MAN SHALL DIE FOR HIS OWN SIN”–(Deut. 24:16; Ezekiel 18:20; 2 Chr 25:4).
That there is NO vicarious atonement is further cemented in these statements by Jesus:
-“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).
Jesus contradicts vicarious atonement. He taught that heaven lies in righteousness and following the Commandments brought by Moses (until the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and abide “for ever”):
-“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 commandments”–(Matthew 19:16-19. This is how Jesus gave his followers “eternal; life”–John 10:28, by teaching them what to follow and avoid; in this respect all prophets give “eternal life”);
-“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).
If one can die for the sin of others then one can take medication and laxative to free others of ailment and constipation –vicarious refreshment.
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).
Even a fool knows that his doctor chopping off his head cannot cure him of his headache, much less that someone can die for him/his sin.
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.
Islam is the Oneway to Paradise.
What is holding you back from Baptizing
with Allāh, the Best of Baptizers?
A. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din notes from T. W. Doane, Bible Myths, pp. 287-297, forty-eight (48) similarities between the lives of Buddha and Jesus; such as their “virgin birth,” their mothers visited by the “Holy Ghost,” “Messianic Star” at their birth, Spirit of God at their baptism, their transfiguration, performed miracles, their coffin/tombs opened by “supernatural powers,” their return to earth again to “restore the world to order and happiness,” “Buddha is Alpha and Omega, without beginning or end, “the Supreme Being, the Eternal One,”” and “Buddha is represented as saying: “Let all the sins that were committed in this world fall on me, that the world may be delivered.””–The Sources of Christianity, pp. 62-70.

1. 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).
