Refuting David Wood: Jesus condemn Paul and Praise the Prophet of Islam

In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent

In the latest video bigotry of David Wood of Acts17 Apologetics, he is attacking the Prophet of Islam and glorifying the Apostle of Christianity, St Paul. We don’t have any problem with Christians who respect and revere their leaders. But we are committed to respond to everyone who attack the Prophets of Islam (Upon them be peace and blessings).

There is a difference between disagreeing with a religion and belief and slandering a religion and leader!

So now, David Wood has dragged us to tell what Our Prophet Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) says about , Paul, David Wood, Sam Shamoun and so on!

CHRIST (PEACE BE UPON HIM) GLORIFIES THE PROPHET OF ISLAM (PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM)

First of all, let’s see what Christ (Peace be upon him) say about the Prophet of Islam:

1- Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) will be called Great In the Kingdom of God:

Matthew 5:19……….. but whoever practices and teaches these commands (the command to follow the Laws of the Prophets)  will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not abolish laws of God, given through the Prophets, but he reformed the Law in the New Covenant and called people to the obedience of the Law. As the Greatest of the commandments remains the same in all the Prophets Law.

Matthew 22:40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

The New Law is given to the Prophet of Islam is for all Mankind, to convict the whole world (See John 16:7-9) , but the Laws and commands were given to previous Prophets were only to their own people or a specific time (see Matthew 15:24)

John 16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

John 16:8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgement:

Matthew 15:24 Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep–the people of Israel.”

Matthew 10:5-6 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.

David Wood May quote Matthew 28:19 out of the context to say Jesus command the disciples to go to all nations, without looking into what Matthew 28:20 says!.

The Quran testifies that God sent Jesus as a Messenger (John 17:3, Matthew 15:24) to the Children of Israel.

Quran 61:6  And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

Matthew 28:20 NLT Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Which prove the new disciples must be only from the Israelite and must obey the command in Matthew 15:24 and Matthew 10:5-6, the non-Israelites cannot be disciples, but can follow a general way of righteousness apart from discipleship, following the way of the ancient prophets (for example: Noah, Jethro,Abraham and so on peace and blessings of Allah be upon them)  

2- Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) called the Promised One.

In the Book of Isaiah 42, the Prophet of Islam is called the Promised one who will emerge from the House of Ishmael (Kedar) and his Way and Law will prevail in all nations , and he will destroy idolatry and polytheism and will defeat his enemies!

3- Christ says, that Prophet of Islam will glorify him and remind the teachings of Christ!

John 14:26 Aramaic Bible in Plain English “But he, The Redeemer of the accursed, The Spirit of Holiness, whom my Father sends in my name, he will teach you all things and he will remind you of everything whatsoever I have told you.”

John 15:26 When the Advocate comes, whom I will send you from the Father–the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father–He will testify about Me.  (see the Quran 5:47)

I challenge the Christian scholars, to show me one teaching of Paul, that was taught only by Christ which late Paul reminded his followers!

CHRIST (PEACE BE UPON HIM) CONDEMNS PAUL:

1- Paul abrogates the command in Matthew 10:5-6, Matthew 28:20 and Matthew 15:24 and went in the way of the Gentiles!

Acts 18:6 But when they opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent of it. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.”

Paul went to the way of Gentiles was not due to a command from Christ, (he may justify it with a false verse in his own books). but he went to Gentiles because he was insulted by the Jews and he want to win followers!. Gentiles (Pagans) who will follow everyone who show miracles and wonders , and they followed Paul due to his miracles shown to them, without following the correct way,, and it is a nature of the pagans that they attribute divinity to everything and everyone who perform miracles or show wonders!. Even today, look at Indian Sub-Continent!

John 12:48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

Quran 5:47 condemns Christians and Paul, who do not accept the teachings of Christ, but follow Paul’s teachings!

 

2- Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) speak about the false Prophets who will come in his name, as he is the Only Prophet (i.e Teacher in his Way)

See Matthew 7

Matthew 23:8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.

Matthew 23:10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah.

Christians took Paul as an instructor and teacher.  And abrogate the teachings of Christ in Matthew 23:8-10.

But Islam teach that there is no Prophets (teachers of God’s Way with a New Message of Covenants)  between Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) and Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

Sahih Muslim Book 30, Number 5835: Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) as saying: I am most akin to Jesus Christ among the whole of mankind, and all the Prophets are of different mothers but belong to one religion and no Prophet was raised between me and Jesus.
 
As the Advocate is the New Teacher (John 16:7-9) and Christ is the Only Teacher in his way (Matthew 23), it is obvious that the Advocate is not coming to teach something in the way of Christ, but coming with a New Way for whole world that teach whole truth, as Jesus himself testifies in John 15:15

John 15:15 I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
So if Christ had already conveyed everything he learned from God to his disciples, then how can someone like Mormon, Paul and other teachers among Christians come and say, this is a new Gospel or new message!Where is their reference to the Gospel of Christ, if they have it today, which was revealed 2000 years ago????!

3- Paul Abrogate the Laws of the Prophets. See Galatians Chapters 3-4-5 which is condemned by Christ!

Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. See Matthew 7:21-25

Matthew 5:19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven,

Which is the commands to follow the laws of the Prophets.

In Galatians 3:24-25 we see Paul abolished the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:17-20

Galatians 3: 24 So the Law became our guardian to lead us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.

John 14:24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

John 14:23 Jesus replied, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make Our home with him.

John 14:25 “All this I have spoken while still with you.

4-Paul abrogated the teachings of Christ but the Prophet of Islam reminded the teachings of Christ!

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Quran reminds Christians to follow the teachings of Christ rather than the teachings of false teachers of the New Testament!. Because Jesus is the Only Teacher in the Way of the Gospel!

See Quran 5:47   And let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.

Which Spirit lead Paul?

2 Corinthians 12:7  I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.

Islam and Christ command to Worship the true God (John 17:3, John 4:23-24) and David Wood command to Worship Christ!. See the Quran 2:133

5: Paul abrogated the teachings in the Torah, but Islam uphold the teachings of Torah and all the Prophets:

1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.

1 Corinthians 11:7 A man should not wear anything on his head when worshipping,

According to Christ, Paul and his followers Will be called Least in the Kingdom:
Matthew 5:19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven,

Zechariah 3:5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the LORD stood by.

Exodus 29:6 ESV And you shall set the turban on his head and put the holy crown on the turban.

Leviticus 8:9 NLT He placed the turban on Aaron’s head and attached the gold medallion–the badge of holiness–to the front of the turban, just as the LORD had commanded him.

Exodus 39:31 Then they fastened a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban, as the LORD commanded Moses.

God and Spirit of God and Angels commands to wear Turban on the head, Paul, False Spirits in him command not to cover the head!

Matthew 5:18 NLT I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.

Until Heavens and earth disappear , which means till  the dooms day take over this world , the smallest of the law will not be abolished! I don’t know if the Christians now will come and say, Dooms day took place 2000 years ago on the so called crucifixion day and we are living in the new earth and new heaven, so the law is abolished!
But cannot see when look around the New Earth and New Heaven!

I suggest Christians to guard themselves from getting fooled by David Wood Sam Shamoun, Christian Prince, Walid Shoebet, Nabeel Qureshi etc, and to use their own conscience and intelligence and come to discuss with us religion and theology. Come to ethical and decent discussions! Agree or disagree, put your claims to test!. Until you put your claims to test , you will  not understand the true message of Christ and what Christ truly meant when he said those words which you mistook to establish Christian doctrines!

I think this  is enough to understand  the case about Christianity and Paul!

If David Wood think he can  defend his claims  and still refute and answer us , then why don’t you ask him to come for a debate with us?
