In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Beneficent
Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon all the Prophets of Allah Most High Most Great.
Many Christians and others find it difficult to digest the fact that Muslims revere Christ as a Prophet of Allah and reject Christianity. Many others will have questions on why this dilemma between Muslims and Christians.
Jews still waiting for Messiah, Christians believed in Christ and then invented doctrines which contradict the sound Gospel spoken by Christ and Muslims believed in Christ just as Christ himself has spoken about him. Though Muslims love and believe in Christ as a Prophet of Allah, so many right wing evangelical Christians slander and abuse Muslims and Islam, on the contrary, they love and pledge allegiance to Jews who reject Christ!. This is a kind of double-standard and fear of truth that we observed from the behaviour of some groups of Christians.
So the Question is Valid, Why Muslims accept Christ and Reject Christianity?
The Answer is Plainly Given Below:
Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) is a Prophet of Allah Almighty (God of Abraham Peace be upon him):
Qur’an 2:87 And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Holy Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.
Christians use Quran 5:47 out of context, to say that Muslims must accept New Testament book completely as word of God!.
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.
Christ Did not Write New Testament and entire New Testament words does not come from Christ:
But Quran clarifies that the Gospel was completely revealed to Christ (Peace be upon him) and Christ conveyed the Gospel completely to his followers. And it is not something that is written ages after Christ!. Much of the New Testament words are not spoken by Christ!. Rather it is an account written by unknown people.
1- Christ did not write or spoken about his own life events as a biography in advance. The Crucifixion story is is not Gospel of Christ. It is a reported speech by someone else through various accounts which most of them are unknown authors. Christ was not going around and writing down what people and others think about him and speaking about him. While Complete Quran and Hadith is Spoken directly by the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him)
2- Much of the New Testament words are from unknown authors and narrators.While Islamic Knowledge is coming from clear transmitters and lineage. God the Most High gave Complete Covenant Laws and Commandments to the Prophets and left nothing to others to complete. In the Gospel of Christ which Christ peace be upon him testifies as a New Covenant , we never see any doctrines of Christianity in it.
3- Muslims following Quran 5:47 and questioning and refuting Christianity based on What God has revealed to Christ through the Gospel , to which Christianity is failing to address the Muslim questions and we are awaiting their reply!.
4- Numerous contradictions between New Testament and the Jewish Torah, for example the numbers of the family members of Prophet Joseph (peace be upon him) which is 70 in all three books of Jewish Torah and 75 in the New Testament (see Acts 7:14) . It is a mistake for a book that claim to be unchanged and holy word of God. Because word of God must be infallible!
Acts 7:14 After this, Joseph sent for his father Jacob and his whole family, seventy-five in all. (NIV)
Genesis 46:27 and the sons of Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt were two; all the persons of the house of Jacob, who came to Egypt, were seventy.
Exodus 1:5 All the persons who came from the loins of Jacob were seventy in number, but Joseph was already in Egypt.
5– Some of the New Testament writings also contradict the Laws of Torah and Spoken Words of Christ!.
For example Head covering:
1 Corinthians 1:7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
Contrary to this (false) teachings, even today, Anglican Bishops, Catholic Pope,Orthodox Priests , Jews and others cover their head. Because covering head is a Covenant Law for the priests, it is not something that dishonour man!. God Commanded Prophet Aaron (Peace be upon him) and his descendants serve God wearing a Head cover (Turban) as priests!. So if covering head is dishonour to a person in the New Covenant, who represent God, then why all traditional Church leaders covering their head even to this day?. How can someone minister the God’s Assembly when he keep on dishonoring himself before God?. I hope now you understood the truth and I pray that may the Truth set you free!
Paul teach that anyone who propagate a different teachings or practice is under curse, Paul is cursing them and invoking God’s curse whoever does not follow his teachings! (practice come from knowledge) and true followers cannot be ignorant as Living Waters must flow from them and they must live like Christ and the Spirit of Wisdom must be in them!
Literally, Paul is invoking curse on all Christian leaders who cover their head, Paul is cursing Christ and all Prophets who cover their head!. According to Paul, all that verse that command covering head is weak doctrine!. Because the curse he making cannot be double-standard, and as a deeper understanding he curse everyone who disobey his teachings!
Galatians 1:8-9 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse!As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
Paul preached men of God (Preachers) covering head is dishonouring head, and those who go against this teaching is cursed by Paul!
This are some of the easily comprehensible reasons and examples for clarifying why Muslims accept Christ and his Gospel and reject some of the teachings of the New Testament! Because such teachings contradict the entirety of the Scriptures and it’s true Message!
See Leviticus 8:9 He also placed the turban on his head, and on the turban, at its front, he placed the golden plate, the holy crown, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
Exodus 28:4 “These are the garments which they shall make: a breastpiece and an ephod and a robe and a tunic of checkered work, a turban and a sash, and they shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother and his sons, that he may minister as priest to Me.
Exodus 29:76 Place the turban on his head, and fasten the sacred medallion to the turban.
Also See Exodus 29:6, 39:28,, Leviticus 16:4, Zechariah 3:5, Isaiah 3:20
When Almighty God Commanded the Prophets to wear head cover , it was part of their honour and holiness, not a dishonour!. So Who is changing the law and time? Who is making Laws to say: “Wearing head cover is dishonor?”
Antichrist change laws and time (see Daniel 7:25, 9:27). I am not saying New Testament authors were Antichrist, but it is a confusion for many people, because New Testament itself confirms that some of the authors were under the influence of false spirits and they were trying to justify it in the same books!
Daniel 7:25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.
see 2 Corinthians 12:7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
NEW TESTAMENT ADMIT IT IS NOT PURE GOSPEL OF CHRIST:
This is Just inspired in my heart now (10:30 AM 14/08/2016) and this post is edited. Bible Admit New Testament cannot be the Inspired Word of God through a ground breaking verse!
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
For an earthly minded person, the wisdom of this verse is very narrow!. But the Bible is clear that “Only Jesus Christ” mediate in that Covenant. No one else can bring a New Law or Doctrine from God, or another Gospel from God, but only that is revealed by Christ (Peace be upon him) is the True Gospel!. Because Jesus is the Only Mediator between man and God in this covenant. So it is irrelevant to say, God inspired Gospel to many people and did not convey it through Christ Alone!
BIBLE REJECT NEW TEACHERS:
Also see: Matthew 23:8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
This Verse also prove that, Advocate (John 16:7-9) comes to whole nations as a person to teach everything!, as Jesus is the Only Advocate and Teacher of the Covenant of Gospel!
This verses reject God Writing Down New Gospel through others!. This is why we see numerous errors and contradictions in the Bible. Not all four Gospels are the same!. Christians try to justify by saying Parable of four people seeing accident in four corners and writing about it!. But I asked if the four people have same spirit in them will there be four different speech?. I also said: “If everyone seeing News from the same channel at 10.00PM (for example BBC) the News everyone watching from every house will be the same!. But if you put Aljazeera, BBC, ITV, CNN etc covering a News about an incident , you have four distinctive reporters with their own ideas and thoughts and it take some days to clearly understand what exactly was happening!.
As for the life of Christ , the eternal Gospel (Which is Quran see Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,) make the truth clear, which preached by Angel and revealed to the Advocate (Prophet Muhammad -Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Christians never claimed or no where said: the Christian version of Gospel is preached by An Angel from midheaven!
So see a Big Picture of Matthew 23:8 and 1 Timothy 2:5
ISLAM COMMANDS TO BELIEVE IN THE BOOK OF PROPHETS WHICH ARE REVELATIONS RECEIVED FROM GOD
Qur’an 2:136 Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”
This examples are enough to justify why Muslims do not accept everything that New Testament says!
Christianity Teach Jesus only is the Image of God and His Glory, Bible Contradict this!:
1 Corinthians 1:7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
By contradicting head covering Laws, this word also says man is Image and glory of God, according to New Testament the glory and image of God is not exclusive to Christ!
In the Old Testament Adam (peace be upon him) is image of God!
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image
Quran Confirms This: “Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was.” (Quran 3:59)
Christianity Teach Jesus is God, but Bible and Islam teach Jesus is a Prophet and Messenger of God:
John 17:3 NLT And this is the way to have eternal life–to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
Hebrews 3:1 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.
Christ (Peace be Upon him) Testified as a Prophet:
John 4:44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.)
Luke 24:19 What things?” he asked. “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.
John 4:19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I see that You are a prophet.
John 20:17 ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'”
Some people argue that Jesus did not say he was not God!, so he is god!. This saying is very childish!. Because Jesus did not have to say he is not god, because there was no such belief known to the people who believed in him!.
Christianity Teach to Worship Jesus, But Christ and Islam teach to Worship God of Jesus (Peace be upon him):
John 4:23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. (King James Bible)
Christianity Teach Jesus is Deity , Bible and Islam Teach Jesus is A Servant of God:
Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.
In the Three years 156 Weeks Ministry, there is no account of Disciples worshiped Jesus as God!, They revered him as Prophet and Holy one sent by God. Just like others revered him which is written as “worship” in Greek Bible!, is actually reverence.
In the Earliest Way of Christ, People Worshiped God of Abraham (God Elohi) Alone, they Did not Worship Jesus as God!
Acts 24:134 However, I admit that I worship the God of our ancestors as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets,
There is no worship of Christ mentioned in the New Testament after Christ ascended to heaven!. Paul and others were winning followers, but no account that this preachers and their followers worshiped Christ!. Not even a single evidence there!. This make it clear that the four accounts in which disciples worshiped Jesus, was only an act of reverence to the Teacher and Prophet. As it is a custom to revere elders and holy ones.
See Daniel 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him. (King James Bible)
CHRIST WAS REVERED AS A “TEACHER” (RABBONI):
Matthew 26:49 Going directly to Jesus, he said, “Greetings, Rabbi,” and kissed Him.
Mark 9:5 Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
Mark 10:51 “What do you want Me to do for you?” Jesus asked. “Rabboni,” said the blind man, “I want to see again.”
Mark 11:21 Peter remembered it and said, “Look Rabbi! The fig tree You cursed has withered.”
Mark 14:45 Going directly to Jesus, he said, “Rabbi!” and kissed Him.
John 1:38 Jesus turned around and saw them following. “What are you looking for?” He asked. They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are You staying?”
Daniel (Peace be upon him) did not prohibit or reject this worship!. Because it is a word used to describe “Reverence” or “Pay Homage” to the Holy ones!. Not a Worship!
Gory and Power Bible Says Jesus Earned a Glory of Becoming “High Priest”, Islam Confirm This:
John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
John 4:34 Jesus explained, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work.
Hebrews 5:5 So also Christ did not take upon Himself the glory of becoming a high priest, but He was called by the One who said to Him: “You are My Son, today I have become Your Father.”
“Today” when Christ became High Priest, he became son according to New Testament. So we can see that “Son” is a word used to describe “High Priest”. There are many High Priests of God in the Bible!
John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who sent Me.
John 14:26 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
Christ said “I and Father are One” when He was doing the Work of God and God Was in him!
John 10:30 I and the Father are one.”
This is about the Work God Did through Christ: “I am In the Father Father is in me”
This is quoted out of context to worship Christ!
Quran 3:26 Say, “O Allah , Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.
John 14:11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.
Parable: Christians Revere the Cage, not the Bird,See
John 14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
This is in Agreement With Islamic Principle:
Christianity Teach Jesus Died for the Sins of the World as A Sacrifice Performed by Romans (Pagans), But Bible and Islam Reject this:
Human Sacrifice is not Prescribed in any Laws and Covenants.
God Saved Christ From Death and He will not Die Till he establish his Kingdom!.
God Never Left Jesus Christ Alone:
THAT HE WILL NOT TASTE DEATH TILL HE RULE THE WORLD:
Matthew 16:28 “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
With the acclaimed power of some Spirit, Christian world past 2000 years cannot figure out who is this Some who never taste death until Son of Man come in his kingdom!. Because this is the word Christ (Peace be upon him) speaking about himself!
CHRISTIANITY TEACH LAWS OF GOD CAME TO AN END AND EVERYONE SAVED UNDER GRACE, BUT CHRIST AND ISLAM TEACH LAW IS ALWAYS EXISTING AND LAWLESS WILL BE DESTROYED AT THE END:
Christians reject Laws of God and follow their own doctrines and traditions. See Mark 7:7-9 and Matthew 15:9.
But Christ said: (Matthew 5:18) For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
2 Thessalonians 2:8 Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming. (NLT)
Also Sahih Muslim:(Book 41, Hadith 7015) “….Every non-believer who would smell the odour of (Christ’s) his self would die and his breath would reach as far as he would be able to see…..
Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes others to sin and those who practice lawlessness (NASB,ISV,HCB)
ONLY SATAN SET FREE PEOPLE FORM THE LAWS OF GOD:
2 Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,
Deuteronomy 18:20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.”
Some Christians argued me that this is about final Judgement, But the Bible verses speaks that it is not about final Judgement. But a punishment during the arrival of Christ. As Final Judgement happen after Doomsday established and the whole Universe is resurrected!
Also another irony of this claim is: “If Final Judgement is to Punish all lawless people (including those who believed in Christ , see Luke 13:27-28 , Matthew 7:22-23) then the salvation Plan and freeing people from law by the so called Death on Cross for the sins of the World was a hoax or a temporary redemption?!. In both ways, this theology and doctrine is in vain!
Isaiah 66:17 “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs, rats and other unclean things–they will meet their end together with the one they follow,” declares the LORD.
Sahih Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657: Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A): Allah’s Apostle (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” Abu Huraira added “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): — ‘And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e. Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them.” (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol. 7)
Because it is clear that christ will destroy/kill all lawless people!
If he died as Ransom for the sins of the world, then he do not have to destroy lawless people when he returns!.
But Bible verses about the returning of the Christ proves that Islamic View of Christ to be true.
All this evidences reject Christian concept of Jesus and Salvation!
Islam is the Truth Spoken by the Advocate,Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him), Only Islam saves a person from Darkness and Doom!
This article was triggered after an evangelist from central Baptist Church Luton who sent me abusive messages on Islam and our Prophet.
And My reply to him:
My Message to that Christians Friend:
I Edited in the blog post. I thank you for your bigotry and skepticism. Your presence is vital to make me active Nd defend the truth and spread the word of Islam.
I love you man, keep hating Islam and keep sending me that garbages and you will see how the world is going to benefit from your garbage when I recycle it.
But truth prevail, nothing can be above truth, I really think God and thank the Evangelist for what he did. It opened up a. New stream of wisdom in my heart. The Entirety of Gospel is completely based on the tongue of Christ and it cannot come from someone after Christ as we read ‘One’ teacher and One Mediator between God and Man. The Man Jesus.
This wisdom would not have come into my heart unless the Evangelist did not mess with me
So we can see that entire new Testament cannot be attributed as word of God as ‘Gospel’
Because Gospel must come directly from Christ only. And it is not someone’s additions later on.
