10- ISLAMIC FACTS IN THE BIBLE
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Fact 1- Muslims believe that there is only one God. (elohi /ilaha /Allah/ see Arabic Bible)
Quran 2:163 And your god is one God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
Mark 12:29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!
James 2:19 You believe that God is one. Good for you! Even the demons believe that, and shudder!
Special Note: James 2:19 claims that even demons believe in one God and shudder. So then. If Christ had any divinity, then devil would not have gone anywhere near to test Christ -to tempt a mighty Tri-Union God with hid counterfeit promises (see 2 Thessalonians 2:9)
Fact 2- Muslims Worship One God – the God of Abraham and Jacob (Peace be upon them)
Quran. 2:130 And who but a fool would be averse to the way of Abraham? For it is We Who chose Abraham for Our mission in this world, and surely in the World to Come he shall be reckoned among the righteous.
Quran 2:131 Such was Abraham that when his Lord said to him: “Submit,”he said: “I have submitted to the Lord of the Universe.”
Quran 2:132 And Abraham enjoined the same upon his children, and so did Jacob: “My children! Behold, Allah has chosen this religion for you.Remain till death in submission (to Allah).”
Quran 2:133 Why, were you witnesses when death came to Jacob? He asked his children: “Whom will you serve after me?” They said: “We shall serve your God, the God of your forefathers, Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, the One God, and unto Him do we submit.”
Exodus 3:6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.
Acts 24:14 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,
3- Muslims believe God is Neither Born nor Begotten.
Quran chapter 112:1 Say: “He is Allah, the Unique.”
2. “Allah, the Self-Sufficient.”
3. “He does not give birth, nor was He born.”
4. “And there is none equal to Him.”
Quran 2:255 Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
1 Timothy 1:17 All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen. (NLT)
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.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (King James Bible)
Jesus -the Son of Man took Baptism of repentance from John the Baptist (Peace be upon them)
Special Note: Numbers 23:19 also says, God is not a man nor a Son of Man, and God does not need to do any act of repentance. But we do see that Jesus Christ did the Baptism of Repentance at the hand of John the Baptist (Peace be upon them) this directly refute Christian claim of Jesus being Deity!
See Mark 1:9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
Acts 19:4 Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance
Hosea 11:9 I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I devastate Ephraim again. For I am God, and not a man– the Holy One among you. I will not come against their cities.
John 4:24 God is spirit.
Deuteronomy 4:39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other.
4- Muslims Worship God as commanded by Christ and other prophets.
Quran 51:56 I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me
Quran 29:17 You worship besides Allah only idols, and you only invent falsehood. Verily, those whom you worship besides Allah have no power to give you provision, so seek your provision from Allah (Alone), and worship Him (Alone), and be grateful to Him. To Him (Alone) you will be brought back.
Quran 1:5 It is You we worship and You we ask for help.
Luke 4:8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'”
John 4:23-24 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. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you
There is no Tri-Union God: Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,
5- Muslims believe Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) is a prophet of God.
Quran 57:27 Then, We sent after them, Our Messengers, and We sent ‘Iesa (Jesus) – son of Maryam (Mary), and gave him the Injeel (Gospel). And We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him, compassion and mercy. But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allah therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (Bible reference Matthew 15:9 Mark 7:7-9)
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. (NIV)
Luke 6:12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
Hebrews 5:7 While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. (NLT)
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 8:28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.
CHRIST ATTESTING THAT HE IS A PROPHET :
Mark 6:4 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.”
6- Muslims believe that all Prophets were Muslims and their teachings were “Islam” (Submission to God in the Covenant of Peace)
The Prophets did not establish Judaism or Christianity as a way to the Almighty. It is always “Islam” which means “Submission to God’s Will (i.e Covenants of Peace)
Quran 3:19 Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account.
Quran 3:85 And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
7- Muslims believe Christ preached adherence to the Laws of God.
Quran 3:48 And Allah will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel.
Quran 3:50 (I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (Before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey me.
Christians believe Jesus abolished laws!
Matthew 5:17-20 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
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.
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, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Mark 7:8 For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”
Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, (ESV)
8- Muslims believe Christ did not die on a cross.
Quran 4:157 And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.
Mark 9:1 And he said to them, “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power
If this person is not Christ who else then?
John 8:21 Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.”
John 8:23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
See Hebrews 5:7
9- Muslims believe Christ will return in the end of Times and will rule 40 years on David’s throne (Peace be upon them)
Quran. 43:61 “He (the son of Mary) shall be a known sign of the Hour; so have no doubt concerning it and follow Me.” (Quran 43:61)
Acts 13:34 God has said, “‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’
As a matter of fact, Prophet and King David (alaihissalam) ruled for 40 years!
Matthew 24:27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man
10- Muslims believe by the appearance of Christ Islamic laws and faith will be established all over the world and whole world will worship true God in Spirit and Truth.
Quran 4:159 And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), but must believe in him [‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), as only a Messenger of Allah and a human being], before his [‘Iesa (Jesus) or a Jew’s or a Christian’s] death (at the time of the appearance of the angel of death). And on the Day of Resurrection, he [‘Iesa (Jesus)] will be a witness against them.
Zechariah 14:9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.
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.
All the human doctrine will come to an end. It will be according to the Laws of Prophets and the lawless will be doomed
As a matter of Fact other beliefs and doctrines in Christianity is not preached by Christ or disciples in the New Testament.
THE DOCTRINES AND BELIEFS NOT FOUND IN THE BIBLE:
As you read above, it is enough for anyone to understand that, things formulated in the Bible that contradict the above statements , are an innovation due to inserted human doctrines and the errors from the later copy makers of the New Testament.
THE FACTS THAT REJECT THE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES:
1- The Scriptures do not say Jesus is god!
The verses in the Bible that are quoted to establish Jesus is god is falsely interpreted or added into the Bible by unknown authors.Such things were not claimed by Christ or original disciples. Some of the verses christians quote today, were actually refuted by Christ.
For Example: Christians quoting, Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Christ cleared off himself from attributing this verse to him! by saying: “Do not Call anyone on earth father (Matthew 23:9) and wonderful counselor to come after Christ (John 15:26) who is the “Spirit of Truth” who teach everything and guide into all truth. And said: “I have not come to bring Peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34), will not bear any governments (John 18:36, My kingdom is not of this world) etc!
Another verse the Trinitarians quote Thomas’ saying: My Lord and my God” (John 20:28)
This is a spiritual vision, certainly Thomas did not mean Christ is God. Because:
They never worshiped Jesus as God.
God did not say he will be born, but God put His Spirit in His Servant,such blessings were given to many, not exclusive to Christ!
John 14:20 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.
John 14:20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
When Thomas realized this, he just uttered those words in a vision!, nothing to do with Christ
In Sufism, it is called : “Fanaa Fillah”, I advise Christians to study sufism and accept the truth about God and Christ to save their souls .
So if Christ was worshiped as deity, then how come those disciples worshiped him only four or five times? and no worship at all after his ascension. There is not even a single worshipping christ recorded in the New Testament individually or as a group after Christ ascended to heaven, neither by disciples nor by their followers.
2- Jesus did not command to worship him
There is no covenant or commandment in the New Testament to worship Jesus. All the verses quoted to prove Jesus is deity and to worship him is coming from a misconception.
The worship attributed to Christ is only a very occasional act of reverence by those who came to him . Total of six worship mentioned in the New Testament attributed to Christ. This worship is like paying homage as Prophet Daniel (A.S) received such worship from King Nebuchadnezzar.
See King James Bible (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.
See Joshua 5:14 And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of the LORD. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” (ESV)
See NLT Translation: “Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the LORD’s army.” At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
Christ (A.S) Commanded to worship God Alone.
John 4:23 New International Version
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.
John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
Matthew 4:10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'”
Despite this clear commandments, Christians let go this commandments and initiate their own traditions to worship Jesus!
Also see Mark 7:7-9 and Matthew 15:9
3- There is no Trinity in the scriptures.
James 2:19 writes that even demons know there is only One God and even demons knows it and they fear.
James 2:19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. (NLT)
Satan knew Christ well, as he knew God. So if Jesus was Tri-Union God, then no way Satan waste his time to deceive Christ with his false promises and false powers!. Bible says that “Jesus was tempted by Satan” (see Matthew 4:1)
When God is the Creator of all, how can he get tempted? and since Demons tremble in terror, there is no way Satan come to Christ to tempt him!. This is clear evidence to disbelieve in trinity!
See James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
Malachi 3:6 “I the LORD do not change.
Some trinitarians quote God saying “We” and “Us” etc to say God is Plural God!. But this is a sheer stupidity. God is King of Kings, Kings and Emperors use “We and Us” when addressing their Royal court or subjects.
When God appeared to Prophets in visions, He was Singular God, not plural God. There is no basis for trinity in the entire books of Prophets. When Christ was asked: “What is the Greatest of the Law” he did not explain it as Trinity.
Also Christ said:(John 15:15) I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
Christ did not reveal Trinity, if he thought no one can understand Trinity , then he would have said, I made everything known, except trinity, because it is a great mystery!.
The disciples did not say: We were taught trinity, but we cannot reveal it because it is a mystery!
John 15:15 also Prove that Jesus (alaihissalam) learned from God,a Triune deity does not need to learn from another deity if they share equal glory and power!
4- Jesus did not bring salvation on Pagan Cross
Christ offered the way of Salvation to the children of Israel (Matthew 15:24) as the “Covenants and commandments” taught in Gospel plus obeying the Laws of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him).
Keeping the commandments and living like Christ is salvation.
1 John 2:6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
1 John 4:17 In this way, love has been perfected among us, so that we may have confidence on the day of judgment; for in this world we are just like Him.
Christ called the pagan cross conspiracy as work of the devil!
John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Christ (a.s) he came to destroy the work of devil, not to make it succeed!
1 John 3:6 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
5- Jesus is not son of God
The word “Son of God” was an ongoing alteration in the scriptures. Which is found in Genesis 6:2 as “sons of God”. . But Christ mocked at Jews and said: “I am son of God” . they consider it as blasphemy. Because God has no sons. Christ was exposing their lies and forgery in the old Testament , as Jeremiah too writes in Jeremiah 8:8.
The word “Son of God” is used as a connotation to say: High Priest of God”. And there were many High priests.
Hebrews 5:5 In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.”
It is the appointment of a “high priest” at certain time and day, is called “today I became your Father”. This type of writing is in Greek scriptures due to the influence of greek philosophy and roots of traditional beliefs, that changed all story of Christ in the New Testament!
6- Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) did not abolish Laws of Prophets nor set anyone free from God’s Laws!
It is widely preached among Christians that “Jesus is the end of Law, grace came law gone,etc!
But this is a misunderstanding! Christ says laws will never be abolished! as explained before. Read Matthew 5:17-20
No disciples claimed things as today’s christians preach!.
The entire Bible says those who abolish law is coming from the work of Satan!
see 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9 and Matthew 13:41 that Jesus will destroy the Law-breakers!
And Lawlessness will be in it’s peak by the coming of Antichrist (see 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Daniel 7:25, 9:27 etc)
Which prove the central doctrines of Christianity is in vain!
