In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and Blessings upon the Prophets and Messenger of Allah
“Is Christianity the true Way?” a topic discussed by many leading Christian and Muslim debaters. But We are explaining the same subject with a simple statement of Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him).
According to Torah, God Gave Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him) a covenant and for his sons too For Isaac (Peace be upon him), God Gave a Covenant for him and and his descendants after him.
Genesis 17:19 Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
And God said to Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) that, all nations on the earth will be blessed through his off-spring!
Genesis 18:18 Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him.
Genesis 26:4 I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed,
Generations had passed since then, all Prophets came from the line of Isaac only to his descendants as it is written in Genesis 17:19.……Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
Even Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) came to the tribes of Isaac to the House of Jacob, to the strayed sheep among them!
Luke 1:33 And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!” NLT
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 onto the road of the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. NIV
James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations: Greetings.
And Jesus proclaimed to Worship the One true God -The God of Abraham and to believe in him and to follow his teachings (The Gospel of Christ)
John 17:3 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.
To Purify their hearts from hypocrisy and falsehood and make them true worshippers who worship the True God:
John 4:23 NLT But the time is coming–indeed it’s here now–when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.
And to make them One in God as He is One in the God by purifying them from false images to make them the true Image of God, as the Mankind was Created in the spiritual world in the Image of God!
See John 17:21 NLT I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
Jeremiah 32:39 and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them.
John 14:20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
This Way Christ gave to a specific people (the Jews) for a specific period and foretold them the coming of the Advocate (John 14,15&16 and Job 16:19 and 19:25) who will be the one bringing grace to the whole world through his new way , convicting the whole world. Who will come in flesh (Job 19:15) as a descendant of Abraham, it is through him the whole world will be blessed.
But Christians say that it is through Jesus who is from the lineage of Isaac , in whom whole world will be blessed. However, Jesus Christ (Peace be upon them) himself rejected this claim.!
See John 12:35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.
Christ says,his light will be available for a little while longer more!, not for centuries and millenniums !
This make us to ask a legitimate question, Is Christianity the true way?
Jesus himself showed us that Christianity is not his way. Because he had explained how his way will be in this world.
See Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
This verses prove that Christianity (whether Trinitarian or others) which is followed by billions of people for the past 2000 years is not the way of Christ. And also prove that, the Promised Offspring who will be a blessing for the whole world is not Christ!
Today, every Christian group agrees in one doctrine as the source of salvation, that is the so called sacrifice of Christ on the Cross to redeem people from sins and God’s Curse!.
Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, JW, Methodist, Seventh Day Adventist, Pentecostal, Anglican, Baptist, Evangelist, Spiritualist Christians , everybody point out to this One and Same Doctrine as a source of Salvation, though they disagree in other doctrines!
So we can see that all Christian sects, more than two billion people today, says they are saved by the Cross (the death of Christ on a Pagan Cross for their sin).
And billions of people since the last 2000 years believed in it!
But Christ says, only a Few will find his path and will enter in his way, this proves he is not the promised offspring who will be a blessing for all Mankind, and also proves Christianity is not the true way, as the true way which Jesus preached only a few could find and follow it, as he prophesied in John 12:35 .
Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
John 14:24 NIV 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.
And Christ foretold that the darkness will over take, by the new generations after the disciples who will invent human doctrines as commands from God (See Mark 7:7-9 and Matthew 15:9)
That is the truth about Jesus Christ and what he said!
Three religion claimed that they are the way of Abraham and the Promise of God to Abraham. Which are Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
But Judaism did not bring a Prophet till today, who will be a blessing for all Mankind. They are still waiting for Messiah to come and reform Israel and then they believe the last Prophet will come ruling in the Kingdom as the Last Prophet is the Head of the Prophets and he will be a blessings for all and God’s
Christians say that Jesus is the blessings for whole world. But as I explained above, Jesus said he came to the Lost Sheep only (Matthew 15:24) and instructed his followers to go to the Lost sheep only (Matthew 10:5-6, Matthew 28:20,James 1:1). And Christ foretold the coming of the Advocate (John 14,15,16, Job 16:19,19:25) and said he will be the one who will convict whole world and teach everything and will remind them the teachings of Christ.
And after Christ until to this day, Only Islam testifies that it came for whole mankind and God sent the Last Prophet as a Grace to whole Creations.
Quran 2:185 The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong).
Quran 21:107 And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.
Sahih Bukhari every prophet used to be sent to his nation only but i have been sent to all mankind. (Sahih Bukhari,Book 7, Hadith 331)
And it is said in Isaiah 42 that the promised one will emerge from the House of Ishmael (Kedar) and will wage war against idolaters and will be victorious and their law will reach in Islands!
Everyone waiting for the second coming of Christ now, so if this prophesies in Isaiah were not fulfilled in Islam and Prophet of Islam, then how come this prophesies gone missing?
So it is now time to accept the way of Islam and truth.
We are showing the Christian brothers and sisters the truth, there is no intention to attack anyone’s religion or belief as everyone is looking to find out the truth and follow the truth.
And finally, if you have forgotten the first part of this article, I remind you again, the way of Christ ,only a few will find it according to Christ’s Knowledge, and his way will diminish as the darkness approach, as happened in the medieval age which is called the dark age (John 12:35) and Islam is the truth that emerged!. So the Christianity cannot be the true way of Jesus, as it is followed by billions and billions in this days, as Christianity is known as the largest group claimed to have a lineage to the Abrahamic creed, itself prove that, it is not the way of Christ, and not the blessings for whole mankind!. The true way of Jesus is a narrow Path and only a few will enter it.
Now, if anyone have another idea or opinion, then they are rejecting the Gospel of Jesus and making Jesus Christ-the Holy Messenger of God a liar!. May God forbid such things. We adhere to the words of Christ!.
We are not accepting other human traditions.
BIBLE AND CHRISTIANITY ON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS:
Bible even claims that Jesus made Wine from Water and drank it. But Christ’s own words disapprove this!.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
John 13:15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you!
Luke 1:15 for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born.
Those who obey the Law (Matthew 5:17-20) of God are the Only people called Great in the Kingdom of God. Jesus is great because he obey the Law of his God and do not drink wine! so his sheep too, see True and false disciples in Matthew 7. So we can see that the other sheep Christ had spoken of was Muslims!
This verse also prove that , those who are in Jesus and in Holy Spirit cannot drink or smell intoxicants!
Based on this truth we believe that Christ was not showing an example of drinking intoxicants!. Prophets guide mankind, they are not sent to misguide!
But as it is said: The Alcohol and intoxicants are the work of Satan, which cause hatred among you!, the Old Testament authors (the authors are not Prophets) made it is acceptable for non-priests to drink Alcohol.
This was a tactic they invented in the scriptures in order to “Divide and Rule the People”. The priests in authority legalised drinks for the common men. So that they get drunk and are fallen into unconscious and become their slaves and priests can then use them for Wars and crusades, and they do it for Alcoholic drinks! (See Drug and Alcohol Addiction) Divide and rule was another strategy used even the colonial period!. Supplying intoxicants to Hindus of India and igniting hatred in their hearts turning them against Islam. The role of Scotch Whisky and French Wine and Cognac played very vital role in Indian Subcontinent.
Praise be to Allah Lord of all Creations
