Answering Missionaries: Muslims are not Anti-Christ!

MUSLIMS ARE NOT ANTI-CHRIST :

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

Quoting verses from the letters of John and by misinterpreting it, some Christians trie to demonise Muslims as Anti-christ.

So let us look at those verses and let’s hope that our hearts will be inspired to give a strong and decent reply to apologetic missionaries.

THE SPIRITS THAT ARE FROM GOD:

1 John 4:2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

All Muslims acknowledge that Christ is a Prophet of the God (see Hebrews 3:1 And Quran)
According to 1 John 4:2 all Muslims are in Christ.

2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

Again, All Muslims confess Christ was sent to Israel as a prophet(see Matthew 15:24). So this verse does not fit to make Muslims Antichrist.

ANTI-CHRIST :

Some missionary Christians quote this verse to demonise Muslims
1 John 2:22 Who is the liar, if it is not the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, who denies the Father and the Son.

They cherry pick the last part of this verse to attack Muslims. “Antichrist, those who deny the Father and son”.

In such narrow-mindedness they don’t want to read our explanation or find out what it means.

We explained that ‘Father’ is a Greek Philosophical connotation for the word “RABB” (Guardian Lord) and “Son” is the Greek word for the word “RABBI” (teacher of God’s Way, Apostle)
This is misinterpreted and written in the version of New Testament books that are written decades and centuries after Christ as ‘father and Son’. The authors of this books were Greek Christians (convert Gentiles) and their books is what popular among Gentiles.
Even today, we see Western convert Muslims who does not have any Islamic upbringing suddenly become world wide known preachers and religious activists. Even, among Christians there are convert preachers become so popular than a Christian family brought up born Christian pastor. Even look at a New Testament professor from University of London SOAS, you won’t see him as a popular Bible preacher among people.

You know the truth, but you like to argue with me instead of accepting the truth.

So the word son is an innovative phrase that replace the word ‘high priest ‘.

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, SON MEANS ‘TO BECOME HIGH PRIEST (CHIEF RABBI):

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.”

That is to become a mediator (Intercessor between man and God:

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,

This Refute Trinity, and the word ‘ one mediator here means, one mediator in the Covenants of the Gospel. Other covenants have many prophets or high priests as mediators.

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

Some missionary argue that Jesus left some powers behind to live as human.
But the Bible says, Jesus never change in his personality.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

God does not exist as three distinctive persons, because He Almighty does not yield His Glory to Another, Rather He Support His Chosen Servants with His Spirit.

Isaiah 48:11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.

Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.

Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.

Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.

So the Missionary taking last part of 1 John 2:22 to attack and demonise the Muslims is coming from ignorance and misguidance while claiming to be filled with Holy Spirit.

WHO ARE ACTUALLY ANTI-CHRIST ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE? :

IN THE JEWISH TORAH: DEUTERONOMY :
According to Deuteronomy Antichrist can be false prophets.
See 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.”

According to this verse, calling Jesus Christ as God is Antichrist and Anti-God, as Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) is only a servant of God in the throne of David (alaihissalam) see Acts 3:13.

Antichrist can be those people who reject the promised prophet in Deuteronomy 18:18-19 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name.

IN DANIEL:
According to Daniel, Anti-christ is he who change laws of God. Real Christ is coming to obey God’s Laws perfectly and teach others to do the same. (see Matthew 5:17-20)
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

Antichrist put an end to sacrifice and burnt offerings, by saying to the people “Jesus paid it all”.

Daniel 9:27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”

This ‘seven’ could be seven Churches of the New Testament later through this seven Churches worshiping Christ came up! Allah Knows Best!

IN ISAIAH:
According to Isaiah Antichrist is those who eat pork, rat and other unclean things. They do so by saying: “Christ abolished the laws of Prophets” (such life style is contrary to the message of Matthew 5:17:20)

See 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.

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT :

THOSE WHO TEACH AND PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS :
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.

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,

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 /NASB)

Matthew 3:12 His winnowing fork is in His hand to clear His threshing floor and to gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

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)

ANTI-CHRIST IS THOSE WHO WORSHIP FALSE DEITIES :
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.”

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)

Anti-christ: Man of Lawlessness and False God in flesh:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

True Messiah is a servant of God and a Prophet in flesh. False Messiah is a false God and false deity in flesh. He claim to be Messiah and God, to mislead people that Messiah is God, in fact the Messiah who claims that he is God will be Antichrist who bring lawlessness (abolishment of the laws) through his deceiving ideologies put into generations for.centuries to make people believe true Messiah paid for all and abolished laws of God.

Anti-Christ Can be those Who Brings New Doctrines and Commands into the Covenant of Christ that contradict the Clear Commandments of Christ:

The Covenants and Commandments given by Christ is clear and understandable. he did not leave any mystery behind about his teachings or commands!.

John 15:15 for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

Christ is speaking that, everything he learned from God, he has made known in his covenants and for the Israel (See Matthew 15:24 “I was sent only to lost sheep of Israel). But when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide them into all truth, because the Advocate is Coming as a Man (Job 19::25) and he is the Last one to come as a Prophet, and he will bring new Covenant and will tell all the truth.

So those who follow the Covenant of Christ, cannot contradict his teachings in their words or deeds. Because the Gospel way is to follow only Christ . See Colossians 2:8, but the coming of the Advocate is to follow the Advocate.

So when we say to Christians, Jesus came only to the Lost sheep of Israel (Matthew 15:24 , Matthew 10:5-6) and he instructed his disciples only to go to Lost sheep, they quote Matthew 28:19 to say Jesus commanded to go to all nations.At the same time, the Christians quote John 10:30 to claim Jesus is divine (“I and Father are one”) but deny another verse that comes after John 10:30, which says: “Father is greater than I” (JOhn 14:28), and they again quote Jesus foretold he has to go tso jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of high priests and they will kill him,but when we quote a new verse that he said when he was already in Jerusalem he said to the Jews “you will look for me you will not find me, where I go you cannot come ” (see John 8:21-23), the Christians deny it, because it point out that he will not be caught or crucified rather he will be raised up into the heaven and a third person will suffer in his place, who will be like the serpant (John 3:14) lifted up! (means an evil person-serpent-son of devil-John 8:44- will be crucified) 

Since, Christians quote, Matthew 28:19 to say Jesus came to all nations, let us see what he actually said:

Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Firstly, the Trinitarians have changed this verse. They added “Baptising in the name of the Father and of the son and of the holy spirit” , according to the Trinity ,they are three distinctive persons !

What is our proof, that this verse is altered?

Because in the entire New Testament , there is no Baptisms in the Name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Only Baptism were in the Name of Christ, not even say: They were Baptised in the Name of the Son”, but written: “In the Name of Christ”

The word “Christ” is a Title Name for “Anointed”, the Acts does not say: What name of Christ they used when they baptised people!

It then says: in the Name of the Father, What is the Name of the Father?, there is no evidence in the New Testament for the Name of the Father!. No where it use “YAHWEH”. for Father

What is the Name of Holy Spirit? , Among Christians, nobody knows it today! Christ says Holy Spirit has a Name in this verse, the Name of Son is “Yeshua/Isa Al Masih”, so what is the Name of the Father and of the Holy Spirit?

Second Issue with the Verse in matthew 28:20  is that Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) said:

“teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:20)

Did Christians or Paul teach everything Jesus Commanded ?

The Answer is no!. See Matthew 5:19, Jesus (A.S) commanded not to set aside least of these commands!. But Paul and Christianity teach Jesus abolished the Laws and we are free!

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.

So We can see that Christ commanded to obey all the Laws and the disciples must teach to obey all the laws , as Matthew 5:17-20 talking about the Laws given through prophets, not just love your neighbour and God (as the Christian Missionary  twist things). This include dietary laws

See Acts 15:29 You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell.

Not to be filled with Wine , but with Holy Spirit:

Christians claim it is ok to drink wine, but Bible dismiss this human doctrines:

see 2 Corinthians 6:14 For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

Ephesians 5:7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.

Ephesians 5:11 Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

1 John 1:6 If we say we have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Pur Spirit (Holy Spirit) will not dwell together with a soul in a corrupt body  which is polluted, as Matthew 5:19 says only those who are pure under the Laws of the Prophets will receive the Holy Spirit, all else is an empty claim!

Ephesians 5: 15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 2o always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Third issue is, did Christ really say to go to all nations after he said, he was sent only to Lost Sheep and 12 were instructed to go only to Lost sheep?. Entire Christian world use Matthew 28:19-20  to say Jesus gave a new command to go to all nations and after he ascended he came to all nations!.

Unfortunately, those who lived with Christ understand this correctly! According to disciples what it meant to go to all nations, was go to different nations where lost sheep live and to preach to them!

See James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings.

This is how the disciples understood the Message of Matthew 28:19-20 and the Baptisms were only in the Name of Christ. Matthew 28:19 has undergone alterations by the trinitarians , but as the ‘Criminology’ principle says that those who make forgery and other crimes, will leave some signs behind, that lead to investigations and finding the truth!

So whom should we follow? Christ’s clear commands and the way disciples showing or the the way of Church and Apostles of Church?

I am not close minded, I always say to every Christians , we both claim we have truth, but unless we put our version of truth to hard test, we do not know who really has the truth. So always welcome to come and discuss the religion and spirituality. Truth will prevail and what is false will be weakened to banishment. We must seek truth and truth will set us free

CHRIST’S VERDICT:

Mark 7:6-9 Jesus replied, “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.’You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!

Christ is not quoting Isaiah for saying  Christ is to be worshiped!, Rather Christ speaking God’s Words to the people, as said in John 14:10
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.

Christ did not teach he is god, nor he commanded to to worship him. But he taught he is servant and Prophet of God and People Must worship the Rabb (Father) in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23-24) . Christ did not teach trinity, rather he said: “by myself I can do nothing” (John 5:30., John 8:28) and he does not know the Hour  (Mark 13:32), he taught to keep the laws of prophets letter by letter and dot by dot (see Matthew 5:17-20), but all this commands of God, spoken by Christ were set aside by  Christianity and changed the scriptures and edited and re-wrote books and established worship of Jesus, trinity, abolishment of the laws etc!

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 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.

Some high school standard apologetics like Walid Shoebat claimed that 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 speaking about Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam). As a matter of fact,there is no born and begotten Gods in Islam. Quran is clear that God is Neither Born nor Begotten, (See Quran chapter 112) which means God is not a man nor a Son of somebody. So it Is foolishness to say God in flesh will appear from among the Muslims and muslims will follow them.

So those ignorant unethical misguided fake ex-muslim labelled Internet missionary apologetics and those who listen to them and take notes from their lectures only make themselves a laughing stock in front of the learned ones and genuinely well informed ones.
What comes out from a person (arrogance towards truth, ignorance, lies, deceptions) etc will defile a person. Even this Verse of Christ is misinterpreted by Missionary to legalise (Mark 7:15) unlawful food. Christ was only reminding them of the high importance of Inner purity, not denying the laws of eating, just as Thomas said in the boat ‘o master, we don’t know where we are going? (John 14:5-6)” Christ was reminding him of the real Journey to God, by saying: “I am the way and truth….” And not cancelling their boat Journey.

Islam command Laws of God, Antichrist command Lawlessness. Islam command purity of body mind and soul. Antichrist commands to pollute body mind and soul. Whatever is forbidden in the Laws of Prophets as wickedness  are forbidden Islam.  So it is bigotry to say Islam is anti-christ! And it is childish arguments hypocrisy and double standard to demonise islam when Islam commands only that which is commanded by the Prophets who are mentioned in the Bible as Prophets of God!

Then you will know the truth and truth will set you free
