The Bible Rejects the doctrine of Christ dying on a Pagan Cross for the Sins of the World:
Answering James R White, Jay Smith, David Wood,Sam Shamoun, and other Apologetics
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophets and Messengers of Allah
The Christian Doctrine of Salvation:
The Christian Doctrine of Salvation says in the common language: “We all have sinned and God is unable to forgive us without making bloodshed (Which actually refute the Christian claim which is salvation is by grace only and not by works) . And no man is good enough pay for our sins. So God himself took the life of a Man as incarnated in flesh and came to this world as a man. God came in the flesh as Jesus to die on the Cross, and he (God) died on the Cross and whoever believes in this doctrine will have salvation and eternal life. And there is Only One God, Who is Unchangeable in Holiness and Wisdom, and HE Exist Eternally in Three Persons as “The Father,Son and Holy Spirit”, it is that ONE and Only Plural God Who died for our sins!
Why this Doctrine is a Human innovation and False?:
1- This Doctrine Claims that no one is good enough to make a sacrifice to God, so He took up the Punishment up on himself and died for our Sins!. So the Doctrine says that the God side of Jesus died on the Cross as human side of Jesus cannot make a perfect Sacrifice, because human side of Jesus is same as everyone else!
But the Scriptures and Pauline books says God Can Never Die:
Genesis 21:33 NLT Then Abraham planted a tamarisk tree at Beersheba, and there he worshiped the LORD, the Eternal God.
Jeremiah 10:10 But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, And the nations cannot endure His indignation.
1 Timothy 1:17 NLT 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.
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.
This verses prove that God is Immortal and Will never die, so as this verses prove that God did not die on the Cross, so the Doctrine of Salvation is wrong.
2- Now, if the Christians argue that, the Man nature of Jesus died on the Cross, then it also refute the doctrine of Salvation!. Because according to the Scriptures No man can bear the sins of another!
Ezekiel 18:20 “The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.
Psalm 49:7 No man can by any means redeem his brother Or give to God a ransom for him.
3: Jesus as a human did not claim to be ‘good’
Mark 10:18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.
Also see Luke 18:19, Matthew 19:17 , this verse is like “Muttafaqun alaihi” Agreed Upon statement by the Majority Gospel authors!
When Muslims quote Mark 10:18 to say Jesus is not God, Christians say that Jesus talked about his humanity in this verse, not divinity!.
When we take this same verse to say , Jesus was not a perfect sacrifice, the Christian apologetics choose to beat around the bush and talk about Saudi Arabia and ISIS!
So this verses prove the fallacy of the doctrinal claim of a perfect Sacrifice!
GOD DOES NOT YIELD HIS GLORY TO ANOTHER:
Jesus gave his glory to his disciples, also prove that Jesus is not God, yesterday today and forever, this verse refute the trinity!
John 17:22-23 I have given them the glory that you gave me (see Isaiah 48:11), that they may be one as we are one–I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.
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.
This is the Message of Sufism (Islamic Spiritual scicence/tasawwuf) “Fanaa FiALLAH”
See Imam Nawawi’s 40 Hadith , No: 38, God become hand feet and tongue of His Chosen Servants”, See Isaiah 42:1
THE WAY CHRIST REVEALED FOR US TO HAVE SALVATION/ETERNAL LIFE:
Christ gave a narrow Path to Inherit the Kingdom, he did not Offer a Free Gift of Salvation!. No where he mentioned such a salvation plan!. Mark 10 clarifies it!
Even Jesus has to suffer many things in order to receive the Glory God promised him, according to the New Testament:
Mark 10:17 NIV As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Mark 10:18 NIV “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.
Mark 10:19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.'”
Mark 10:20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”
Mark 10:21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Mark 10:22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
Mark 10:23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
Mark 10:24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
Mark 10:26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”
Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Mark 10:28 Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”
Mark 10:29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel
Mark 10:30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields–along with persecutions–and in the age to come eternal life.
Mark 10:31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
TO BECOME ABDUL: YOU HAVE TO SERVE THE PROPHETS ,DISCIPLES AND ALL MANKIND TO INHERIT THE PATH:
Mark 10:43-44 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else.
YOU MUST DENY YOURSELF AND FOLLOW THE COMMANDS IN THE GOSPEL TO RECEIVE SALVATION:
Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
The cross Jesus command to carry everyday is not a Pagan cross, if it was then Christians would be accountable for not carrying Pagan Cross Daily!
Here cross clearly means, it is a “metaphor” to signify the commitment of Keeping his orders which ego of men will find difficult to carry out everyday. As not to let eyes, feet and hands to stumble every moment can be difficult for many ,than to die on a Cross or spear!
It is easy to die for the religion rather than living for the religion to keep it’s Laws and commands!
Luke 14:27 And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.
Matthew 7 Further explains the Way of Salvation!
Salvation by Both Faith and Work.
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.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:17-20 further Explains the Way to have eternal life :
Matthew 5:17 “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.
THE NEED FOR WORK WITH FAITH:
Matthew 5:20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.
PURE HEART LIKE THE CHILDREN: (Refutes Original Sin Doctrine)
Matthew 18:3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
TO HAVE CORRECT FAITH IN THE TRUE GOD AND HIS MESSENGER -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 PRAY TO TRUE GOD AND WORSHIP AND SERVE THE TRUE GOD ONLY AS THE DEITY:
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.”
Matthew Chapter 6:
9 Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name be kept holy.
10 May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today the food we need,
12 and forgive us our sins,
as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
13 And don’t let us yield to temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.
14 “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
This is why Quran 5:47 commands the Christians to Judge by What Allah has revealed in the Gospel, that is the true words of Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) . And today Muslims asking the Christian world, why you neglecting this true Message of Christ and holding on to the traditions (doctrines) of Men!
Mark 7:8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”
Mark 7:9 NLT Then he said, “You skillfully sidestep God’s law in order to hold on to your own tradition.
Matthew 15:9 Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.'”
The Christians say, Jews followed Talmud and other doctrinal books other than Torah and words of the Prophets . So I ask why Christians following the doctrines of Trinity, rather the teachings of Christ?
As Christ is the Only teacher in his way and he had taught everything he learned from God during his life on this earth (John 15:15). So is there any legitimacy with the new teachers and their doctrines who taught new things after Christ!?
Matthew 23:8 But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers
Matthew 23:10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah.
TO LIVE LIKE MESSIAH:
1 John 4:17 NLT And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.
1 John 2:6 NLT Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked.
John 13:15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
GOD IN ISLAM THE MOST MERCIFUL GOD:
Islam introduce God as the Most Merciful God, who forgive all the sins to those who sincerely repent!
Leviticus 5:17 NLT “Suppose you sin by violating one of the LORD’s commands. Even if you are unaware of what you have done, you are guilty and will be punished for your sin.
The Old Testament says God Will Punish people for their mistakes which they are unaware of!
But in Islam God Forgives the mistakes done without knowledge and by forced by someone else:
Quran 3:31 Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
In the New Testament and in Christianity, God had to kill his holy Servant Jesus to forgive all mankind.
For example: Imagine Two murderers were taken to the court and Judge found them guilty, but Judge is too kind but he also want to establish justice to the relatives of the victims ,and he said I will let you go, instead of you both take punishment, I will send my son to prison to be hanged for the crimes you commit!
God’s Religion, Islam (Submission)
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.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Do not Take Devil’s Lies and Ways (Crucifixion) as a Way to have Eternal Life:
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.
There is no Eternal Sin In Islam. Allah forgive all sins if a person repent and turn to God before death!. But in Christianity, Blasphemy against holy spirit is an eternal sin!
Luke 12:10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
Matthew 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
This message is conveyed to all the Christians of the world, who are loving, kind and humble, to invite them to understand the truth about God and Christ, and to invite them to Islam and Truth.
Praise be to Allah, The Lord of All Creations.
