In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Compassionate
Christians try to prove that Christ is God by taking verses from Bible that says: “I am the Way the Truth and Light and No one comes to the Father, but by me”
John 10:30 I and the Father are one.
The Philip Factor:
Whoever seen me has seen father
John 14:8-9 English Standard Version (ESV) 8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Christians often quote this verses out of context to prove Christ is God! It is only indicating the prophet-hood of Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him).
When you read other verses in Bible it will be clear to you that Jesus Christ is an Apostle of God and the Spiritual encounter he is taking his disciples to God (I am in the Father, the Father is in me I am in you John ,see 14:20), this often made book bounded christians to become confused and make them claim that: Jesus is god”!
The Thomas Factor:
Christians quote Thomas to say: Jesus is God , because Thomas called Jesus as God and Lord and Jesus Christ did not correct him, if Jesus did not claim himself god!. This verses Christians use to trick Muslims. But the truth is below:
John 20:28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Thomas has seen what philip has not seen, which is “Show us the Father”
Jesus Christ revealed God’s gnosis to Thomas and out of ecstasy he must have uttered this words.
John 20:27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
The Proof for Thomas’s words in 20:28 was from Ecstasy of Spiritual Experience (vision of gnosis received through power of Jesus)
John 14:5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
The rest of the verses in this chapter clearly states that Jesus Christ is the way to God, whoever followed him sincerely would receive the Gnosis of God (Mari’fa in Islamic Spirituality). Jesus is the Path , not the destiny. God is the destiny.
Further evidence is that, no Apostles or disciples established or instructed others to worship Jesus Christ nor proclaimed anywhere as Jesus is god!
Acts 2:22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.
See John 14:7 If you had known Me, you would know My Father as well. From now you do know Him and have seen Him.”
Philip did not know Jesus’s Spiritual reality, so he could not see God’s glory!. Because Philip at this stage was spiritually low!
The Whole Context:
1 John 4:12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 Timothy 6:16 He alone is immortal and dwells in unapproachable light. No one has ever seen Him, nor can anyone see Him. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
1 John 4:20 If anyone says, “I love God,” but hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.
Christians also quote the verses about Jesus’s birth and Shepherds worshiping him!
Were shepherds following the Scriptures?, if yes, doesn’t old testament prohibit worshipping human gods!
Christianity has largely relied on shepherds and other unknown people to form it’s theology and beliefs!
Luke 2:8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
Luke 2:9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
In Which City or town or in village, in the nights shepherds stay awake in the night in December Winter to watch over the flocks?! False Angels and False Spirits mislead shepherds! and telling shepherds that a son of god has born and you shall worship him?
It must be false spirits that appeared in the so called Winter!
2:25 (Luke) When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
So, now the question is, Was Christ, Jesus of Bethlehem or Nazareth?
Was Anti-Christ born in Bethlehem, the same night as Jesus Christ (A.S) born in Nazareth?
Matthew 21:11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
In Luke we see a Jesus from Bethlehem, in Matthew we see a Jesus of Nazareth!
Quran referring Jesus (Peace be upon him) to be a Prophet from Nazareth and Quran calls followers of Christ as Nasara!
It is a custom in old times that a person is known from the place of birth!, for example: Imam Bukhari is known after his birth place Bukhara (Uzbekistan)
Luke 7:16 They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.”
Christians use the above verse as well, to say Jesus is god!, to understand what Luke 7:16 means, you must read Deuteronomy 18:15
The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.
Here Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him) said: “The God Will Raise up for you a Prophet like me”
Did Prophet Moses ever claimed to be a son of God/God/Divinity?, Absolutely No!!!!, So Jesus Christ (Peace be up on them) did not claim to be a God or Son of God in the context that he is god and he must be worshiped!, So no one ever worshiped Christ in those times!
So, if Jesus did not fulfill the prophesy of Deuteronomy 18:17 as a Prophet like Moses (not god or son of God)!, then either Christians are corrupt or the bible is corrupt, or both are corrupted by false writings and beliefs!
And they also say that Christ is the Only Chosen Person of God!
This are absolutely lie, Christ is the chosen one for his time, and when he comes second time!
Another Chosen Person of God!: Isaiah 43:10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.
God Alone is Savior, and He Save His People through the Prophets and Saints, sent to them.
Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.
So, Was Isiah or Abraham/ Noah. Moses (Peace be up on them) worshipped Jesus Christ (A.S) or Holy Spirit or Father?, or did they worship only True God?
Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols.
Christian believe Father, Son and Spirit are God, equal in glory and power! but the three are not the same!, But Glory belong to God Almighty Alone!, No one share it!
Quran 1:2 [All] praise is [due] to Allah , Lord of the worlds –
Sometimes Christians try to Prove that Jesus is God by Quoting the disciples worshiped him/prostrate before him!
It is a Biblical Wording error to kiss feet/hands/to pay respect to the Holy Person!
That kind of worship we see in other verses in Bible, so if we take that verses to make Jesus a god, then we will have to make more Gods, five or six gods apart from Father Son and Spirit of the Christian Faith!, But God is One and Only!
Revelation 22:8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me.
So, John worshiping Angel, so the Angel is also god?, So many gods in Bible ,ehh?
Revelation 19:10 At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
Show me a single testimony of Jesus, in which he says: I am God worship me?
Daniel 2:46 King James Bible
Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.
So Daniel is another God in Bible , ehh?
When you read Bible without the support of true Spirit and God, you end up making Jesus a God, Daniel a God, Angel a God, and you make many gods!
Because you are deceived by Ego not guided by Holy Spirit!, leave ego , lawlessness and pride! Then read Bible, then you understand the truth and false in it!
It is natural to become heretics, if one study spirituality and did not study laws! That’s what happened to Christians!, and what happened to Jews is that they study laws and did not study spirituality, they became corrupted and corrupt the world!
Genesis 44:14 Judah and his brethren came to Joseph’s house, for he was still there; and they fell prostrate before him.
So, Joseph is God, eh?
THOMAS CALLED JESUS GOD AND LORD IN HIS JEWISH EXPERIENCE:
Bible Speak about so many other Gods without name:
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.
For Thomas, Jesus was a small god among gods and a lord among lords, and the great God was God of Abraham, this is how Jews distorted their Books and affirmed gods and lords!
God of Abraham Ishmael Isaac and Jacob (Peace be upon them), God Almighty Allah (Elohi) is not God of gods !, Because there is only one God!
Saying God of gods is tradition in Hinduism and polytheism. In the Way of Prophets of God, there is no affirmation of gods, the testimony of faith is negation of gods, not affirmation!
This is (verse 10:17) is another example of corruption in Deuteronomy
This verse in Deuteronomy is similar to Hindu Scriptures narration about Great God who is God of some gods that they worship beside that Great God!
But Islam reject false gods and say: “There is no God but One God”
There are no gods !, But Bible , which is influenced by Greek Roman and Hindu Pagan gods , speaks about gods and Lords!
Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.
So this is the time to Wake Up and Accept True Faith (Islam) and True Path, it’s Spiritual Way!
