Yahweh And Allah Are Different Gods

Why Yahweh and Allah are not the same? Because Their natures, behaviors, and capabilities are different or opposite. The following are different departments proving that Yahweh and Allah are completely not the same;

1. YAHWEH IS A TRINITY, WHILE ALLAH IS A UNION OR UNITY 

Yahweh Is Trinity In Persons: 

[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.

[Matthew 28:19] 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.

[1 John 5:7] For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 

Allah Is A Unity: 

[Sahih Muslim 23b]

Abu Malik narrated on the authority of his father that he heard the Apostle (ﷺ) say:  He who held belief in the unity of Allah, and then narrated what has been stated above. 

READ: ALLAH IS TAWHID (UNIFICATION OR UNION)

2. YAHWEH HAS A SON, WHILE ALLAH CANNOT HAVE A SON SINCE HE HAS NO WIFE 

Yahweh Has A Son: 

[Psalm 2:7] The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my Son. Today I have become your Father. 

[1 Chronicles 17:13] I will be his Father, and he will be my Son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor.

[Mark 9:7] Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is My beloved Son. Listen to Him!”

Allah Has No Son:

[Quran 6:101] To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: How can He have a son when He hath no consort? He created all things, and He hath full knowledge of all things. 

[Quran 112:3] He begets not, nor was He begotten

3. YAHWEH CALLS HIS BELIEVERS AS HIS CHILDREN, WHILE ALLAH CALLS HIS BELIEVERS AS HIS SLAVES OR BONDMEN

Yahweh Calls His Believers As His Children:

[Isaiah 43:6] I will say to the north, “Give them up,” and to the south, “Do not keep them.” Bring my sons from far away and my daughters from the ends of the earth

[2 Corinthians 6:18] And: “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

[Galatians 4:6-7] And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir. 

[Revelation 21:7] All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children. 

Allah Calls His Believers As His Slaves:

[Quran 19:63] Such is the Garden which We cause the devout among Our bondmen to inherit.

[Quran 23:109] Then We gave the Scripture as inheritance unto those whom We elected of Our bondmen. But of them are some who wrong themselves and of them are some who are lukewarm, and of them are some who outstrip (others) through good deeds, by Allah’s leave. That is the great favour!

4. YAHWEH DOES NOT CHANGE HIS MIND AND WORD, WHILE ALLAH CHANGED HIS MIND AND WORD 

Yahweh Doesn’t Change His Word And Mind:

[1 Samuel 15:29] Also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.”

[Psalm 89:34] “My covenant I will not violate, Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips.

[Isaiah 40:8] The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. 

[Hebrews 7:21] but Jesus became a priest with an oath by the One who said to Him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind: ‘You are a priest forever.'”

Allah Substituted His Previous Word:

[Quran 2:106] None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things? 

[Quran 16:101] And when We substitute a verse in place of a verse – and Allah is most knowing of what He sends down – they say, “You, [O Muhammad], are but an inventor [of lies].” But most of them do not know.

5. YAHWEH DOES NOT LIE, WHILE ALLAH DECEIVES PEOPLE 

Yahweh Does Not Lie:  

[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?

[Hebrews 6:18] Thus by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be strongly encouraged. 

Allah Is The Best Deceiver: 

[Quran 3:54] But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers (Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu waAllahu khayru al-makireena)!

[Quran 7:99] So, do they feel secure against the scheming of Allah? Then none feels secure against the scheming of Allah except the people (who) are the losers. 

6. YAHWEH COMMANDS LOVING OTHER PEOPLE, WHILE ALLAH HATES THE NON-MUSLIMS AND COMMANDS HIS BELIEVERS TO KILL THEM 

Yahweh Commands Loving Your Fellow:

[Leviticus 19:34] You must treat the foreigner living among you as native-born and love him as yourself, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

[Proverbs 25:21] If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.

[John 13:34-35] A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

[Matthew 5:44] But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you 

Allah Commands Hating And Killing Of Non-Muslims:

[Ishaq 322] Allah said, ‘Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war. . . I will cast TERROR into the hearts of those who reject Me. So strike off their heads and cut off their fingers. All who oppose Me and My Prophet shall be punished severely.

[Quran 4:104] And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering – so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they expect not. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

[Quran 5:51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. 

7. YAHWEH TEACHES MARRYING A GROWN GIRL, WHILE ALLAH TEACHES MARRYING A CHILD 

Yahweh Teaches Marrying A Grown Girl: 

[Ezekiel 16:7-8] I made you grow like a plant of the field. You grew and developed and entered puberty. Your breasts had formed and your hair had grown, yet you were stark naked. ‘I went by you again and looked at you. You were old enough to make love to. So I spread my robe over you, and covered your naked body. I promised to love you, and I exchanged marriage vows with you. You became mine, declares the Almighty LORD.

COMMENT: God liken the Israelites as a girl ripe for marriage. She should be grown up, and entered puberty. Her breast has formed and her hair is long. Her mind and body is old enough to make love to, and also with a promise of loving her. 

Allah Allows Marrying A Child: 

[Quran 65:4] And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women – if you doubt, then their (waiting) period is three months (relating to divorce), and [also for] those who did not menstruate. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. 

COMMENT: . . . and [also for] those who did not menstruate . . . this means that marrying or having sex with a child is permissible By Allah. 

[Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311]:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

8. YAHWEH COMMANDS A MAN TO HAVE ONLY ONE WIFE, WHILE ALLAH ALLOWS A MAN HAVING MANY WIVES PLUS SEX SLAVES

Yahweh Commands A Man To Have One Wife Only: 

 [Deuteronomy 14:16-17] “You are not to go back that way again.” He must not take many wives, or his heart will be led astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold

[1 Timothy 3:2] An overseer then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach 

[Titus 1:6] if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination 

Allah Allows A Man To Have Many Wives: 

[Quran 4:3] And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course.

[Quran 4:24] Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you. All others are lawful, provided you seek them from your property, desiring chastity, not fornication. So with those among them whom you have enjoyed, give them their required due, but if you agree mutually after the requirement (has been determined), there is no sin on you. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. 

COMMENT: . . . except those whom your right hands possess . . . this refers to the girl possessed by a Muslim or a slave girl. Allah pampered Muslim men with plenty of sex disregarding the feelings of women or children

9. YAHWEH HATES AND FORBIDS DIVORCE, WHILE ALLAH ALLOWS DIVORCE 

Yahweh Prohibits Divorce:  

[Malachi 2:16] For I hate divorce!” says the LORD, the God of Israel. “To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty,” says the Lord Almighty. “So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife. 

[Matthew 19:4-6] Jesus answered, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”

[Luke 16:18] Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and he who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Allah Allows Divorce: 

[Quran 33:49] O You who have believed, when you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched them, then there is not for you any waiting period to count concerning them. So provide for them and give them a gracious release.

[Quran 2:237] And if you divorce them before you have touched them and you have appointed for them a portion, then (pay to them) half of what you have appointed, unless they relinquish or he should relinquish in whose hand is the marriage tie; and it is nearer to righteousness that you should relinquish; and do not neglect the giving of free gifts between you; surely Allah sees what you do.

10. YAHWEH TEACHES HUSBANDS TO LOVE THEIR WIVES, WHILE ALLAH ALLOWS HUSBANDS TO BEAT THEIR WIVES 

Yahweh Commands The Husbands To Love Their Wives And don’t Be Harsh To Them:

[Collosians 3:19] Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. 

[Ephesians 5:25] Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her

Allah Allows men to beat their wives:

[Quran 4:3[] Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great. 

[Tabari IX:113] Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur’an.

11. YAHWEH CONDEMNS SEXUAL IMMORALITY, WHILE ALLAH TEACHES SEXUAL IMMORALITY  

Yahweh Forbids Sexual Immorality: 

[Hebrews 13:4] Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

[Revelation 21:8] But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Allah Teaches Raping Women And Pimping Them:

[Quran 4:24] And all married women except those whom your right hands possess (this is) Allah’s ordinance to you, and lawful for you are (all women) besides those, provided that you seek (them) with your property, taking (them) in marriage not committing fornication. Then as to those whom you profit by, give them their dowries as appointed; and there is no blame on you about what you mutually agree after what is appointed; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise. 

COMMENT:  . . . except those whom your right hands possess . . . this refers to the girl possessed by a Muslim. This means that a Muslim man is not forbidden to have sex with their captive girls whether they are married or not to non-Muslims, and whether she likes it or not. 

[Sunan Abu Dawud 2150 & Muslim 3433]:

Abu Said al-Khudri said: “The apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Quranic verse, “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess”. That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.” 

[Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543]:

A man inquired, “We earn income from these bondwomen, (other narratives mention prostitution) so can we do coitus interrupts with them?” The Prophet said, “There is no sin in doing that” 

12. YAHWEH TEACHES HUMILITY, WHILE ALLAH COMMANDS DOMINION OVER OTHER PEOPLE.

Yahweh Forbids Arrogance And Commands His believers To Act Humbly: 

[Isaiah 13:11] Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless.

[1 Peter 5:5-6] You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time 

Allah Commands His Muslims To Subjugate And Humiliate Other People: 

[Quran 9:29] Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.  

[Sahih Bukhari 392] 

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220]

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. 

13. YAHWEH GAVE HIS BLOOD THROUGH JESUS TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE, WHILE ALLAH DEMANDS THE BLOOD OF HIS PEOPLE TO GET INTO HIS JANNAH 

Yahweh Gave His Blood Through Jesus: 

[1 John 1:7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

[Revelation 12:11] And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death 

Allah Demands the Blood Of His Believers: 

[Quran 3:157] And if you are killed in the cause of Allah or die – then forgiveness from Allah and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate [in this world].

[Quran 4:74] So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory – We will bestow upon him a great reward. 

14. JESUS IS THE RIGHT HAND OR ARM OF YAHWEH, WHILE THE BLACK STONE IS THE RIGHT HAND OF ALLAH 

Jesus Is The Arm Of Yahweh: 

[Psalm 89:13] Mighty is Your arm; strong is Your hand. Your right hand is exalted. 

[Psalm 118:15] Shouts of joy and salvation resound in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the LORD performs with valor!

[Isaiah 52:10] The Lord has bared His holy arm In the sight of all the nations, That all the ends of the earth may see The salvation of our God.

[Luke 2:27-30] Led by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. And when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for Him what was customary under the Law, Simeon took Him in his arms and blessed God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as You have promised, You now dismiss Your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen Your salvation, 

The Black Stone Is The Right Hand Of Allah: 

[Shaykh’ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, Majma’ul Fatawa, 6/397-398; Ibn Taymiyyah Expounds on Islam]

“The Black Stone is the right hand of Allah on earth; whoever touches it or kisses it, it is as if he shakes hands with Allah and kisses His right hand.”

15. JESUS IS THE SIN PURIFIER OF YAHWEH, WHILE THE BLACK STONE IS THE SIN REMOVER OF ALLAH 

Jesus Is The Sin Purifier: 

[Malachi 3:3] He will act like a refiner and a purifier of silver. He will purify Levi’s sons and refine them like gold and silver. Then they will bring acceptable offerings to the LORD.

[1 John 1:9] If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

[Hebrews 1:3] The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

[Titus 2:14] He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

The Black Stone Is The Sin Remover: 

[At-Tirmidhi, Sunan, hadith no. 959. This hadith is classified as hasan by At-Tirmidhi and as Sahih by Al-Hakim (1/664), and Adh-Dhahabi agreed with him]

Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: “Touching them both (the Black Stone and Ar-Rukn Al-Yamani) is an expiation for one’s sins.” 

[Jami` at-Tirmidhi 877, Book 9, Hadith 70]

Ibn Abbas narrated that: The Messenger of Allah said: “The Black Stone descended from the Paradise, and it was more white than milk, then it was blackened by the sins of the children of Adam.” 

16.) YAHWEH’S HEAVEN HAS NO MARRIAGE, WHILE ALLAH’S PARADISE HAS POLYGAMOUS MARRIAGES AND EXCESSIVE SEX 

Yahweh’s Heaven Has No Marriage:  

[Matthew 22:29-30] Jesus answered, “You are mistaken because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. In the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like the angels in heaven. 

Allah’s Paradise Has Marriages And Excessive Sex:  

[Sunan Ibn Majah, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39] 

“Abu Umama narrated: “The Messenger of God said, ‘Everyone that God admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis”

Is Muhammad the prophet foretold in Deuteronomy 18:18?

Since the name ‘Muhammad’ is nowhere in the Bible, the Muslims desperately quote some verses in the Bible as references of their prophet. One of them is the verse below;    

[Deuteronomy 18:18] “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren or countrymen, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him”.

COMMENT: In this verse, God said to Moses that He will raise a prophet from among his brethren (Israelites), Muhammad is not an Israelite so he could not qualify this. This promised prophet will be like Moses in the sense that God put His words into his mouth, and made him as His speaker to Pharaoh to liberate the Israelites. Muhammad was not a speaker of God and did not liberate people, on the contrary, he owned slaves. This promised prophet fits Jesus because He had arisen from Israel’s bloodline and a God’s speaker to His people. Kindly read;

[Luke 7:16] Fear gripped them all, and they began glorifying God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and, “God has visited His people!” 

[John 12:49] “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak” 

COMMENT: [Luke 7:16] tells the reaction of the people after witnessing Jesus who raised a dead young man. They referred Jesus as a raised prophet and visiting God. And in [John 12:49], Jesus tells us that the Father instructed him on what to say and what to speak, therefore He’s a God’s speaker.

If we read further, verses 20 to 22 in Deuteronomy 18, we can find these verses; 

[Deuteronomy 18:20] “But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.”

[Deuteronomy 18:21-22] You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’. “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken.

COMMENT: Muhammad clearly spoke in the name of other gods (Al-lat, Manat, and Al-Uzza (Koran 53:19-20). And also he spoke false testimonies in the name of God. Therefore, Muhammad is a fake prophet and should die. 

To better understand who is this predicted prophet, let us read Deuteronomy chapter 18, from verse 15 to 20;

15“The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him.

16“This is according to all that you asked of the LORD your God in Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, let me not see this great fire anymore, or I will die.’

17“The LORD said to me, ‘They have spoken well.

18‘I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.

19‘It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.

20‘But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’.

COMMENT: In verse 16, God gives reason why He will raise a prophet, it is because the Israelites were afraid of Him in the form of fire and afraid of His thunderous voice. This is one of the reasons why God took a human form in the person of Jesus so that He could live with His people and they would no longer be afraid of Him, as well as, He could convey his message well to His people.

Ahmed Deedat (who advocated this claim) diverted the meaning of Brethren as Jews intended to connect Muhammad to Israelites. But take note that these brethren were descendants of Jacob (or Israel) who went into Egypt, and when they became numerous, Moses brought them to Canaan (the promise land and later called Israel) _these are chosen people of God. God isolated Jacob from other descendants of Abraham. The people we called Jews that live in Israel are descendants of Jacob. Israel is the name given by God to Jacob. Muhammad cannot be this prophet because he’s a descendant of Ishmael (one of the sons of Abraham) the progenitor of Arab, Muhammad is an Arab. Likewise, Muhammad’s word is not from God for his words were stupid and superstitious (read Hadiths), he even had uttered a Satanic verses (Qur’an 53:19-20). Moreover, Muhammad raped, tortured, and slaughtered many Jews, a sign that he was not born to save the Jews but rather to destroy them. Deedat had luxury in telling lies to his Muslim audience because he knows Muslims are not familiar about the Scriptures. Who is the false prophet? It is He who speaks the name of other gods. Muhammad clearly spoke the name of other gods [Quran 53:19-20]. 

Genesis 17:20-21 also expose the falsehood of Muhammad;  

20And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

21But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear unto you at this set time in the next year.

COMMENT: (Genesis 17:21) tells us that the covenant of God shall be established only with Isaac, and not with Ishmael. Muhammad descended from Ishmael blood line, so he could not become a prophet. 

Furthermore, the Quran itself debunks the prophethood claim of Muhammad for it says the prophets and scriptures come from Isaac and Jacob (Israel), and not from Ishmael, the ancestor of Muhammad. 

[Quran 29:27]  And We gave to Him Isaac and Jacob and placed in his descendants prophethood and scripture. And We gave him his reward in this world, and indeed, he is in the Hereafter among the righteous.

Why Jesus Died On The Cross If He’s God?

Jesus bore the iniquities of mankind, therefore he took the pain and suffering resulted from the punishment accorded to us (mankind). He is presenting himself to God as sinful mankind who is punished on a cross because of our sins. Prophet Isaiah foretold about the suffering Messiah, to quote;

[Isaiah 53:4-6] “Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all”

[Isaiah 53:12] “Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors”

COMMENT: The above verses foretell the fate of Jesus, who would become the bearer of our sins and the taker of our punishment. He would become the intercessor between God and sinful mankind. Jesus showed so much humility, He did not use His divinity to His advantage, instead He used His humanity in going through suffering of crucifixion. Consider the verses below;

[Philippians 2:5-8] “Have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Although he was in the form of God and equal with God, he did not take advantage of this equality. Instead, he emptied himself by taking on the form of a servant, by becoming like other humans, by having a human appearance. He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, death on a cross”

Jesus had authority on Himself if He wanted to, but He intentionally gave up His human life so as to redeem us, as He said;

[John 10:18] “No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”

After the first parents sinned because of the Serpent’s deception, God already had set up a plan to destroy Satan’s work, He said to the Serpent Satan;

“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel” [Genesis 3:15].

COMMENT: This seed is fulfilled in Jesus who’s born to a woman (Mary). The reason why Jesus was sent by God is to destroy the devil’s work through His death. So that in Jesus death, He might deliver us from the power of death inflicted by Satan. Kindly read;

[1 John 3:8] “He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil”

[Hebrews 2:14-15] “Since then the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage”

All people sinned [Micah 7:2], therefore, all people should be sentenced to death physically and spiritually because the penalty of sin is death. But since God so loved the world, He saved it by sending forth His Spirit to become a perfect man. Jesus presented Himself as an atoning sacrifice (sacrificial lamb). Only righteous or sinless man can enter into Heaven, but how can we be righteous if we are sinners since birth [Psalm 58:3]? A sinner cannot go back to the glory of God by himself. God looked for a sinless or holy man to be the reason He would not destroy mankind, but He had found no one [Ezekiel 22:30 & Ezekiel 22:31]. From this reason, Jesus came down in order to take the penalty of death so that we may not perish due to sin [Psalm 73:27]. He bore our iniquities and died on our behalf so that we can become righteous and justified through Him [Romans 3:25-26]. By Jesus’ suffering and anguish on the cross, God’s wrath become satisfied. As Isaiah prophesied;

[Isaiah 53:11] “As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities”

Jesus was following the will of the Father, His fate was already written in the Scriptures thousand years before His birth. In fact His last word was, “it is finished” [John 19:30], referring to the fulfillment of the prophecies about Him. Kindly check this speech of Jesus to His apostles after His resurrection;

[Luke 24:44] “These are my words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled”

Mankind was separated from God and lost their everlasting life because of the sin of Adam and Eve. Sinlessness means everlasting life, while sin means death, thus, we are dead already because of sin. But through the resurrection of Jesus, we can also be resurrected and be saved from death. 

And why God’s spirit needed to become a man in order to save us? Because it is man who sinned, therefore it is man who saves. Kindly read;

[1 Corinthians 15:21] “For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead”

Is the Father unfair by allowing Jesus to be killed? Nope, for He exalted Jesus to the highest place in return, kindly read;

[Psalm 89:27] “And I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth”

[Isaiah 52:13] “Behold, My Servant will act wisely; He will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted”

[Hebrews 2:9] “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone”

[Philippians 2:9-11] “Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”

Did Jesus Come Not To Bring Peace But A Sword? (Matthew 10:34)

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword!

Answer: Jesus is referring to the division of a family caused by His teaching. And this fact is true, many families are divided because of Jesus Christ. One example of this is His disciples who left their families to follow Him. Members of a family differ in Faith, that’s why they are divided. How many members of families that left their homes to follow Jesus, and how many are killed? This division is very painful among the members. That’s why Jesus called His teaching as a sword for it cuts the hearts of men. Others opted not to follow Jesus and believe His salvation totally because they are afraid to lose their families, or even lose their lives for leaving their families and religion. In Islamic society, to kill a family member who leaves Islam is a commandment. That’s why Jesus said, “anyone who loves his father and mother or (son and daughter) more than me is not worthy of me”. The one who sticks to his family because he is afraid to die will lose his eternal life instead. And the one who is not afraid to die in following Him will find eternal life. Jesus emphasizes the consequence of following Him, that we should carry the cross or burden in following His teaching wholeheartedly, if we want eternal life.

Let us continue reading Matthew 10, from verse 35 to 39;

35For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’;

36and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’

37He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.

38And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.

39He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

Let us also read the parallel verses from [Luke 12:51-53], they say;

51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.

52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.

53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” 

Jesus is the prince of peace [Isaiah 9:6]. He is referring not the literal sword to kill people, but He meant the sword of Spirit which is the “word of God”. Kindly read;

[Ephesians 6:17] Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

[Hebrews 4:12] For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

If Jesus Is God, Why He Did Not Know the Last Hour?

Questioned verse: [Mark 13:32] “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

ANSWER: Jesus claimed that He came down from Heaven only to do the will of the Father [John 6:38]. He did not come to Earth to do His own initiative. He has many roles assigned by the Father to Him in coming to Earth; He is the savior or purifier of the world, confirmer of the new covenant, builder of the Kingdom or Church, and a prophet or bearer of the word of the Father. Being a prophet or speaker of the Father, He talks only what the Father commanded Him to say. Let us read what Jesus said;

[John 12:49] “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.

Jesus spoke it under the will of the Father who commanded Him to glorify Him. He did the will of the Father in order to glorify or exalt the Father. Kindly read;

[Psalm 50:15] And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.

[John 17:4] “I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do. 

[John 11:42] “I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.

The Father and the Son are glorifying each other. Kindly read;

[John 13:31-32] Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him; if God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately

[John 17:1] Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You,

Jesus also claimed that He and the Father are one [John 10:30 & Isaiah 9:6], And He is in the Father and the Father dwells in Him; 

[John 14:10] Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.

What the Father knows, the Son also knows for They are one. Jesus knows the exact Hour, but He said so in following the will of the Father. In fact, not only He knows what will become after the Tribulation Day, but He will be the one to come with great power. He said in [Mark 13:24-27];

24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

27And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Jesus is human in body and God in spirit. In His human nature, he prayed to the Father because that should humans do. On the other side, in His divine nature, He accepted worship from the people (Luke 24:52). It is not for the people to know the exact time fixed by God (Acts 1:7), so Jesus in his human nature, He belongs to humanity whom God withheld from knowing the exact hour. 

Imagine the situation if God told the people the exact hour of the Tribulation, what might happen? God purposely hide this matter from us so that to test our faith in Him. Likewise, there would be a massive panicking beforehand. Jesus described the Judgment Day as the most terrifying moment of men. People will flee to caverns in the rocks and crevices in the cliffs, away from terror (Isaiah 2:21). The stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken [Matthew 24:29], the sun will stop shining, and the Earth will be covered with darkness. Just as the exact hour of our death, God needs to hide it for us not to be panicked and terrified.

God Is Eternal And Has No Beginning, If Jesus Is God, Why He Has A Beginning (His birth)?

The birth of Jesus was God’s entrance to the world as predicted in Isaiah, He says;

[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. 

[Isaiah 7:14]: Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (God with us). 

Roughly 700 years before Jesus, prophet Isaiah predicted the coming of a Son. He will be born to a virgin woman and will be called a Mighty God or everlasting Father. This prediction was fulfilled in Mary, Angel Gabriel said to her;

[Luke 1:30-32] So the angel told her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son, and you shall give Him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

Jesus was a perfect human and God in Spirit. God raised a human being, and dwelt in it [Deuteronomy 18:18 & John 14:10]. Jesus’ humanity had a beginning, but His Spirit has no beginning and end. Jesus even declared that He has no beginning and end for He says;

[John 8:58] Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM” 

[John 8:23-24] “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I AM HE, you will indeed die in your sins.” 

[John 13:19] “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I AM WHO I AM. 

Jesus took the name of God of Abraham in John (8:23-24 & John 13:19), Compare these verses to (Isaiah 43:10 & Exodus 3:13-14);

[Exodus 3:13-14] “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you’.

[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.

“I AM, I AM HE, or I AM WHO I AM”, is the name of God in the Bible; it speaks his self-existence; that He has no beginning and end, that He is the First and the Last, ever the same.

If Jesus Is God, Why He Cried Out, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?”

Actually this words, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” is a fulfillment of the prophesy in [Psalm 22:1]. But to better understand this cry, let us read Psalm 22 from verse 1 to 2; 

[Psalm 22:1-2]

1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning, 

2 O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest. 

COMMENT: From analyzing the verses, definitely it is not an entreaty of Jesus to the Father because in verse 2, the Psalmist is restless by night, and his cry is not answered by God. While, Jesus was never deserted by the Father, in fact the Father dwells in Jesus [John 14:10]. The verses above is a pleading prophesy of a sinner (sinful mankind) who is forsaken by God. Since Jesus bears the sins of mankind and the pain of the punishment; He is presenting himself to God as sinful mankind who is punished on a cross because of sin. 

Prophet Isaiah foretold about the suffering Messiah or Jesus, to quote;

[Isaiah 53:4-6] Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

[Isaiah 53:12] Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors

COMMENT: The above verses foretold the fate of Jesus who would become the bearer of our sins and the taker of our punishment. He would become the intercessor between God and sinful mankind.

Jesus although also God (since He is the spirit of God) did not use His power to his advantage, instead He emptied Himself to become an ordinary human. He humbled Himself, and followed the law accorded to humankind perfectly even death on a cross. Consider the verses below; 

[Philippians 2:5-8] Have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Although he was in the form of God and equal with God, he did not take advantage of this equality. Instead, he emptied himself by taking on the form of a servant, by becoming like other humans, by having a human appearance. He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, death on a cross. 

Jesus had authority on Himself if He wanted to but He intentionally gave up His human life to redeem us. As He said;

[John 10:18] “No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”

After the first parents sinned because of the Serpent’s deception, God already had set up a plan to destroy Satan’s work, He said to the Serpent Satan; 

[Genesis 3:15]“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel”

COMMENT: This mentioned seed was fulfilled in Jesus who was born to a woman (Mary). The reason why Jesus was sent by God is to destroy the devil’s work through His death. So that in Jesus death, He might deliver us from the power of death inflicted by Satan. Kindly read;

[1 John 3:8] He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil 

[Hebrews 2:14-15] Since then the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 

The wages of sin is death, therefore mankind should die. God looked for a sinless man to be the reason He would not destroy the world but had found no one [Ezekiel 22:30 & Isaiah 59:16]. From this reason, God sent forth a spirit from Him to assume a human nature and die to save the world. Jesus took the penalty of death in place of us so that we may not perish because of sin [Psalm 73:27]. He bore our iniquities and died on our behalf so that we can become righteous and justified through Him [Romans 3:25-26]. By His suffering and anguish on the cross, God’s wrath became satisfied. As Isaiah prophesied;

[Isaiah 53:11] As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.

Jesus was following the will of the Father, His fate was already written in the Scriptures since thousand of years before His birth. In fact His last word was, “it is finished” [John 19:30], referring to the fulfillment of the prophesies about Him. Kindly check this speech of Jesus to His apostles after His resurrection;

[Luke 24:44] “These are my words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled” 

Furthermore, Christians are the modernizers of the world. They are the inventors of electricity, spaceship, computers, internet, cellphones, satellites, and many more. Therefore, Christians are genius for they are guided by God. Do you think when it comes to identifying God, they are so dumb? Christians believe Jesus as God because they have convincing reason. You study the Bible and you will see that Jesus is God. Imagine the world without Christians, the world of today would have been still barbaric. As a matter of fact even until now, many of the Islamic countries are still barbaric. Marrying a cousin, marrying a child girl, sex with a child, raping/selling slaves, and beheading/mutilating people are still practiced.

Why God Commands To Wipe Out Amalekites? (1 Samuel 15:3)

When Christians denounce Islam because it commands to kill and terrorize other people, Muslims used to counter it by citing [1 Samuel 15:3] as more severe than what Allah commanded. 

Questioned Verse:

[1 Samuel 15:2-3] ‘I witnessed what the Amalekites did to the Israelites when they hindered them on their way up from Egypt. Now go and attack the Amalekites and devote to destruction all that belongs to them. Do not spare them, but put to death men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”

ANSWER:

Firstly, that extermination order from God was limited for a particular tribe only, and not for all other people as what Allah commanded their believers. Secondly, that event does not justify the massive killings of non-Muslims carried out by Islam. Did Yahweh kill other people because they were not adherents of Judaism? Nope, He killed Amalekites because aside from being idolatrous, Amalekites attacked the innocent Israelites while exhausted from their exodus. The Israelites were led by God but still the Amalekites attacked them, they had no fear of God. Kindly read; 

[Exodus 17:8] After this, the Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim.

[Deuteronomy 25:17] Remember what the Amalekites did to you along your way from Egypt, how they met you on your journey when you were tired and weary, and they attacked all your stragglers; they had no fear of God. 

And this is the main reason why God wanted to blot out the Amalekites, kindly read; 

[Exodus 17:14] Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as a reminder and recite it to Joshua, because I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.”

The destruction of Amalekites was already prophesied by Balaam 400 years before the time of king Saul, kindly read;

Balaam’s Final Three Oracles

[Numbers 24:20-22]:

Then Balaam saw Amalek and lifted up an oracle, saying:

“Amalek was first among the nations,
but his end shall be destruction.”

Next he saw the Kenites and lifted up an oracle, saying:

“Your dwelling place is secure,
and your nest is set in a cliff.

Yet Kain will be destroyed
when Asshur takes you captive.”

Why not imitate the behavior of the Kenites whose lives were spared by God because they showed kindness to Israelites when they journeyed from Egypt? Kindly read; 

[1 Samuel 15:5-6] Saul came to the city of Amalek and lay in wait in the valley. And he warned the Kenites, “Since you showed kindness to all the Israelites when they came up out of Egypt, go on and get away from the Amalekites. Otherwise I will sweep you away with them.” So the Kenites moved away from the Amalekites. 

God waited 400 years for Amalekites to change from their evil ways, but nothing happened. If you attack Israel, you will suffer the wrath of God, so I advice you Muslims to stop attacking Israel if you want to maintain your lives. It’s not true that God hates the Jews as propagated by your religion. In fact today, the Islamic countries have been attempting to destroy Israel but failed though Israel is just a tiny nation. This is to fulfill what God had promised in Tanakh that He will bring the Israelites back to their land. And from that point, no one can uproot them anymore, kindly read; 

[Amos 9:15] I will plant the people of Israel in their land, and they won’t be uprooted again from the land that I gave them, says the lord your God.

[Jeremiah 32:37] I will surely gather my people from all the lands to which I have banished them in my furious anger and great wrath, and I will return them to this place and make them dwell in safety. 

Yahweh cares for other people unlike Allah, to prove; 

[Exodus 23:9] Do not oppress a foreign resident, since you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners; for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. 

[Deuteronomy 23:7] Do not despise an Edomite, for he is your brother. Do not despise an Egyptian, because you lived as a foreigner in his land.

[Deuteronomy 24:17] Do not deny justice to the foreigner or the fatherless, and do not take a widow’s cloak as security.

My Rebuttal to a Muslim’s Claims about Qur’an and the Bible

QUESTIONS:  

1.) Your allegation that the Quran is mainly written by Muhammad and his cohorts is a lie, read http://www.quran-islam.org/main_topics/quran/false_accusations/abrogation_claims_(P1216).html

ANSWER: That is one of the Masters of Arts of Islam, Master of Arts in Lying and Master of Arts in Denying. These facts are supported by several Hadiths depending on the statement. However, to cover this shame, Islam denies these Hadiths and instead acknowledges only few Hadiths, including the Bukhari which contains less shameful facts compared to the ones rejected. Nonetheless, assuming that these rejected Hadiths are indeed fabricated, let us use our common sense in analyzing the Koranic verses given by your source, and also I will provide Koranic verses to support my argument so that Muslim apologists will have no room for denial, here are the verses given by your source;

“A.L.R. this is a book whose verses have been perfected” 11:1 

: “. . . have been perfected”,  why there is a need for perfection? It means before the perfection there were flaws existed while this book was revealed by the all-wise Allah in detail to Muhammad. The fact that Allah changed or perfected Their revelations, it means They are not God. Allah have the reputation of being all-wise, all-knower, and knower of the unseen; but unfortunately errors had room in Their declarations. They failed to know the visible things and failed to see the unseen.

“……the words of God are unchangeable” 10:64

: This verse complicates more of the issue of contradiction in Koran for it tells us that none can change the words of Allah, But in verses [2:106 & 16:101] Allah substituted Their previous revelations. I will put down the wording in verse [16:101];

“And when We substitute a verse in place of a verse – and Allah is most knowing of what He sends down – they say, “You, [O Muhammad], are but an inventor [of lies].” But most of them do not know.”

: This verse tells us that Allah, the all-knowing and knower of the unseen, changed Their previous revelations. What is funny after They changed Their former revelations, still They have the audacity to claim that They are the most knowing. Allah failed to stop Muhammad from uttering Satanic words during Their revelation [53:19-20], that’ts why They needed to correct them. This proves that Allah are not almighty and all-knowing. Additionally, Muhammad is a fake prophet, consider this verse;

[Deuteronomy 18:20] “But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

If Muhammad had uttered other gods and Allah were not able to stop him, the verdict is, both are fake.

2.)  Read “Quran and Bible comparison”, you will know the truth: http://islamtomorrow.com/articles/Bible_vs_Quran.asp

ANSWER: About your second source, I want to point out the author’s lying or ignorance about the Bible. 

THE BIBLE 

Old Testament 

“Naturally, there have been many different translations to a great number of languages over the centuries and one could not expect them (books of Bible) to be identical in text or meaning” 

Answer: One could not expect them to be identical in text or meaning? In text yes, but in meaning, there are 2.3 Billions Christians believe that the books in the Bible are agreeing to each other. 

New Testament 

“To mention two very clear differences for example; the Catholic Bible [c. 325 A.D] contains 73 books in total, while the Protestant Bible contains only 66 books”

Answer: I wonder why the author labeled this topic as New Testament but he tackled the whole Bible instead. But anyway, I proceed to answering his allegation; The Protestantism is a rebellion of Catholicism in 1517. That is their own religious principle to use only 66 books in their Bible version. The Protestants just took out 7 books from the original Bible (compiled by Catholicism). They did not alter the message or idea of any book making it different from the original. 

QURAN

The  Quran Means “Recitation” 

ANSWER: What makes it special? I don’t see the importance of being recited and written. Reciting is no longer new to the Hebrews for they recited the contents of their Scripture long before Islam. And what is wrong of being written? God himself wrote His Ten commandments on the stone tablets twice. 

The author says; “the documentation in writing about the Quran has been preserved in museums throughout the world, including the Topekopi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, the museum in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and also in England” 

ANSWER: Provided that this claim is true, but how about in the earlier time of Islam? Was the Quran or Recitation safe after Muhammad died? Bukhari reported that there were four versions of Quran copies or Recitations emerged. And to avoid this problem, Uthman ordered to burn all copies except the version of Hudhaifa (Sahih al-Bukhari, 6:61:510). 

Also Read: http://www.harvardhouse.com/quran_purity.htm

Koran has Only One Version – Arabic

ANSWER: What makes special in the one version? Even if the Koran was written originally in Arabic alone, it could not escape from lies, errors, and contradictions stated within. Moreover, it is not true that the Quran has only one Arabic version, nowadays, the Quran has thirty one Arabic versions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lqQBVtUWvo&t=20s.  In contrast, having many authors adds the uniqueness of the Bible, since how come the messages of the books agree considering that they were written by different authors, as well as written in different regions, languages, and generations?

The Koran is Memorized by Millions – Entirely  

 “The important thing to keep in mind about the Quran is the memorization and transmission of the actual “Recitation” just as it came to Muhammad” 

ANSWER: “… actual recitation just as it came to Muhammad“? This statement is a big fat lie, we know that there were various versions of recitations happened after Muhammad died, and Uthman chose only one version _the version of Hudaifa. However, despite of Uthman’s effort, there are still many Arabic Qurans today. 

And I doubt if there are ten Millions had memorized the Quran. Even Muhammad himself was not able to memorize all of the so-called revelations https://www.answering-islam.org/Green/forgot.htm.

Each Muslim Has “Quran” Memorized

ANSWER: This is utterly a lie. I have a Muslim Girlfriend and she could not memorize a single verse in Quran, how much more the entire book? Most Muslims today are ignorant of their Scriptures. Moreover, Islamic history tells us that only few Muslims could recite the Quran, even Muhammad could not recite the whole Quran. 

God Speaks in First Person to Mankind in Quran 

ANSWER: Another lie. Allah transmitted Their message to Muhammad through the so-called Angel Gabriel. Nowhere in Quran that says Allah appeared and talked to Muhammad. In the Bible, God himself talked to Adam in person [Genesis 3:10-11]; appeared to Abraham in three persons [Genesis 18:1-2]; wrestled with Jacob as a person or man [Genesis 32:24]; showed to Moses and Israelites in the form of cloud and fire [Exodus 13:21]. Likewise, God dwelt with the Israelites in the form of Jesus [read the Gospel]. Moreover, the said angel Gabriel did not introduce his name to Muhammad, In fact, Muhammad thought it was Satan who squeezed him since it tortured him. It was Kahdija his wife who concluded that it was angel Gabriel because it disappeared when she and Muhammad performed sexual acts [Sira No. 154, Ishaq].

Quran Mentions Itself  

ANSWER: What makes special of mentioning itself? What is more important, the mentioning or essence of the Scripture? The Quran has a lot of contradictions, ignorance, killing commandments, and immoral teachings. 

Quran Describes God’s Nature Exactly 

ANSWER: How did you know that the Koranic description of God is His exact nature? How can you believe Quran if it’s filled with ignorance, contradictions, falsehood, and myths? The Quran teaches that the sun sets in the muddy spring of the Earth (18:85-86); it teaches that there are seven flat Earths and seven solid skies; it also teaches that the stars were made by Allah as missiles to shoot evil spirits (37:6-7 & 67:5); and many more. Additionally, Muhammad saw his Allah as a man with uncircumcised penis https://sunnah.com/bukhari/81/113. 

“There is no room left for doubt after reading the Quran in the Arabic language”.

ANSWER: So if you read Quran in English, you will have room left for doubt after? If that so, it is better for Mecca to abolish all the translations of Quran, and kept their Islam themselves alone. You know what, this is one of the defenses of your religion, if it has no room left to explain the Koranic problem, your leaders simply reject the translation. I tell you, Arabic language is not alien, hence it is translatable. It is natural to have a slight divergence in the translation, but the contradictions in Quran are so grievous that it can never be justified. There are three, four, and even seven contradicting statements in one topic. Besides, Quran not only contains ignorant, false, and contradicting statements, but also Satanic verses _this problem definitely is not caused by wrong translation.

“He is for instance, the All-Knowing; the All-Hearing; the All-Seeing; the All-Forgiving; the All- Loving; the All-Merciful; the Only One God. There is never a contradiction to this found anywhere in the Quran”.

ANSWER: The all-wise Allah, all-knower, and knower of the unseen? I doubt it, for Allah replaced his revelations [2:106 & 16:101]. Likewise, Satan was able to sneak his verses during Allah’s revelation to Muhammad, and Allah was not able to prevent Muhammad from uttering other gods. Muhammad in that event became the prophet of Satan. So it means Allah is powerless to know all and to see the unseen.

No contradictions? Islam gives you confusions: they say,  “our Koran contains no contradictions”, but you can find many in it https://silawantribe.com/2018/10/24/much-contradictions-in-quran/; Muslims say, “we are a religion of peace”,  but their Quran commands killing of all non-Muslims; Muslims say, “there is no compulsion in our religion”, but they execute their members who wanted to leave Islam; Muslims say, “Jesus did no die and resurrect”, but you can find a Koranic verse telling Jesus will die and resurrect; Muslims say, “Jesus is just human made of dust”, but you can find a Koranic verse telling Jesus is a spirit of Allah; and many more inconsistent claims. 

On the other hand, our God Jesus never erred, He’s flawless and powerful. He stopped the storm, expelled legion of demons from the possessed men, cured inborn physical disability, cured the grievous sicknesses like leprosy, He raised dead people and rose from the dead Himself. And He will come back to judge the people including Muslims [Ibn Kathir’s tafsir on Quran 43:61].

Scientific Miracles in Quran

ANSWER: When it comes to miracles and prophesies, the Bible has so much in it. But the so-called miracles in Quran are lies and ridiculous. Muslims just don’t know the false claims of their leaders because they are ignorant of their own scriptures. I tell you, there is no single miraculous verse in Quran. I will expose the falsehood of these so-called prophetic claims soon. 

“Bible” is NOT in the Bible 

ANSWER: I don’t know if the author of your source is ignorant of the Bible or he purposely twisted the truth. He is telling that the New Testament was not yet in the Bible at the time of Timothy, therefore, Paul was wrong to say to Timothy that he studied the Bible or Holy Scripture.

Your source quoted this, “Since you were a young man you have studied the holy scriptures, all scriptures inspired by God”,  as evidence that the Bible is not in the Bible.

First let me put down the complete verse, so that I can explain to you well. Here it is;

[2 Timothy 3:15] “And that from a child you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus”.

Of the 25 Bible translations [https://biblehub.com/2_timothy/3-15.htm], I have not encountered a word “studied” but instead “taught or known” are generally used. If we talk about Holy Scriptures or Writings, it does not mean the Bible itself. This refers to the different Books inspired by God. Any book in the Bible can be called Holy Scripture. The Old Testament can be called Holy Scriptures as well. The word “Bible” is derived from the Koine Greek word “Ta Biblia” means “the books”. The Bible is composed of different writings which early Christians believed as inspired by God, but not all Holy Scriptures or books are in the Bible. In either way, whether Paul referred to the Old Testament or New Testament, or to both Scriptures, he was correct in saying to Timothy “you have known the Holy Scriptures”. Because the knowledge about God Jesus at the time of Timothy was already there. Paul and other Apostles were already writing and announcing to the people about the “good news or Gospel”. In fact, what the author of your source failed to realize is that, he is using the verse quoted from the Book of 2 Timothy written by Paul to Timothy, and this Book is a Holy Scripture for it is one of the Books in the New Testament. So, how come the author of your source said that the New Testament was not yet existing at the time of Timothy? All books in the New Testament are about Jesus. The author of your source shows his ignorance of the Bible.

Bible Curses Church Fathers Who REMOVED Book of Revelations

ANSWER: For your information, the Catholic Church never removed any book from the Bible, it was the Protestant Church which removed the seven books from the original Bible. For the first 1,400 years there was no other Christian Church emerged except the Catholicism. After Martin Luther was excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church, he founded his own Church in 1517 called ‘Protestantism’. He questioned which books should be part of his own Biblical canon.  At various times he advocated removing the Book of Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation.  However, when he translated the Bible into German language, he kept the mentioned books. Therefore it was the Protestant Church which removed and put back the Book of revelation in their own Bible version.  As you know, not only Islam that severely attack the Catholic Church, but also the Protestantism and its offshoots (like Seventh  Day Adventist, Born Again, etc.).  Martin Luther removed some books from the original Bible for a couple reasons. First, he disagreed with a few doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church derived from these books, like purgatory and prayers for the dead. Second, these books contradicted with his faith-in-Jesus-alone doctrine. 

Whose Word Is It? 

The author says;So if you go to the Bible and point out some mistakes that are in it, you are going to be told (by Christians): Those mistakes were not there in the original manuscript, they have crept in so that we see them there today”.

ANSWER: Excuse me, it is Islam which uses this alibi. Which religion keeps telling that the original Arabic writing is correct, without contradictions, you can feel no doubt after you read, etc.? If there is a question raised against the Bible, Christians dig into it for an answer. And if there is any error of the translation from the origin, they show the evidence. Unlike Islam, which used to tell people that the Arabic version of Koran is correct, and only the translation made it wrong. For your information, the Bible is not only prophetic, but also historical. When it comes to prophesy (the word or act of God), the Bible is infallible. The supposed contradictions fell to the historical side. The Bible is 99-98 percent accurate, so its percentage of credibility is still high. How can a man preserve documents from 3400 years ago without a single flaw? 

 Are There Mistakes?

The author of your source presented verses [2 Samuel 10:18] and [1 Chronicles] as contradicting and erroneous.  

[2 Samuel 10:18] And the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew the men of seven hundred chariots of the Syrians, and forty thousand horsemen, and smote Shobach the captain of their host, who died there.

[1 Chronicles 19:18] But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host.

Answer: Actually there are two contradictions raised by bible critics about this allegation; one, is the supposed numerical contradiction between the seven hundred mentioned in 2 Samuel and the seven thousands mentioned in 1 chronicles, and the other, is the forty thousand men who were slain by David which described as horsemen in 2 Samuel and footmen in 1 chronicles. But the author of your source just concerned of the latter. Nevertheless, I will solve the two of them. 

First, keep in mind that 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles were written by different authors. Each writer has his own way of presenting a report, so you cannot expect a similar wordings or figures of their stories. Likewise, if you have spotted dissimilar wordings or numerical figures in their reports, it does not mean these data are contradicting, but they can be two pieces of information as well.

If you can notice, the seven hundred mentioned in 2 Samuel is referred to the number of chariots, while the seven thousands mentioned in 1 chronicles is referred to the number of men in the chariots.

If you are a soldier whose means of transportation is only a horse, you can be called as a horseman or cavalier. And if you get down from a horse in order to fight on foot, then you can be called as footsoldier or footman. In the battle, horsemen and footmen can be applied interchangeably. 

 How Did Judas Die?

The author quoted [Matthew 27:5] and [Acts 1] as a contradiction. Since in the preceding verse, Judas hanged himself, but in the following verse Judas fell headlong.

ANSWER: Again this author did not specify the other so-called opposing verse. Let us read these alleged verses;

[Matthew 27:5] Then Judas threw the silver coins down in the Temple and went out and hanged himself.

[Acts 1:18] With the reward of his wickedness Judas bought a field, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his intestines spilled out.

: [Mathew 27:5] tells us the cause of Judas death, which is ‘he hanged himself’. While [Acts 1:18] tells us what happened to the hanged dead body of Judas. When his corpse started to decompose, it fell headlong and his stomach burst open, spilling out his intestines. [Acts 1:18] is not a contradiction against [Matthew 27:5], but rather a continuation of Judas’ death account.

MY MESSAGE TO ISLAMIC APOLOGISTS 

Before you exalt your religion and assail accusations against the Bible, solve first the blunder in your Koran, Don’t you know that your Koran does not know about Trinity? Here are the proofs;

[Koran 4:171] “O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of God aught but the truth. CHRIST JESUS the son of MARY was (no more than) an apostle of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on MARY, and a SPIRIT proceeding from Him: so believe in God and His apostles. Say not “TRINITY” : desist: it will be better for you: for God is one God: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs.”

[Koran 5:116] And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘TAKE ME AND MY MOTHER AS DEITIES BESIDES ALLAH ?'” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is knower of the unseen.

: In the verses above, the (all-wise, all-knower, and knower of the unseen) Allah, think that the Trinity persons are JESUS, MARY, and ALLAH.

Quran has many errors, but this error is great. This could never have happened since the Trinity is the main issue of the Islamic accusation against Catholicism. If Allah do not know about a simple subject here on Earth, how much more about Heavenly and spiritual matters? These verses will demolish Islam if its Billion followers can know and understand this fact. Take note that the Quran also failed to identify Mary mother of Jesus, it thought that Mary was Merriam, sister of Aaron and daughter of Imran; Also it failed to describe the shape of the Earth, it thinks that the Earth is spread like carpet [15:19, 20:53, 43:10]; Also, Allah thought that the Earth and the sky were once a solid piece and later separated [21:30]. These errors confirm the notion that the Quran was mainly written by Muhammad and his cohorts.

Muhammad had scribes that wrote his revelations down for him. One scribe was `Abdullah Ibn Sa’d Ibn Abi Sarh. As Sarh wrote these revelations down, he frequently made suggestions on improving their wording. Muhammad often agreed and allowed the changes to be made. Eventually, Sarh left Islam, knowing it could not be from God if a mere scribe were allowed to change God’s word. Later, after the conquest of Mecca, Muhammad ordered Sarh’s death.

To those who do not know about Trinity, the Holy Trinity is a doctrine of the Catholic Church that God is one nature but emphasized Himself to mankind in three persons, namely, (God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit).

My Answers to Muslim Accusations Against Christianity

QUESTIONS:

1.) Prophet Jesus (Pbuh) never claimed to be God at any time, on the contrary he said, my father is greater than I, My father is greater than all, I can of my own self do nothing.

ANSWER: First, I will tackle the Godhood of Jesus (marked as “A.”), and then I’ll touch next the issue on why Jesus said, “my father is greater than me” (marked as “B.”).

A.) Jesus literally did not say “I am God, worship me”, but there is so much evidence in the Old and New Testaments that Jesus is God. I will give you proofs;

JESUS TOOK THE NAME/TITLE USED BY GOD (OF ABRAHAM), “I AM HE/I AM WHO AM”:

[John 8:23-24] “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I AM HE, you will indeed die in your sins.” 

[John 13:19] “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I AM WHO I AM.

Compare these verses to [Isaiah 43:10 & Exodus 3:13-14];

[Exodus 3:13-14] “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.

[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.

JESUS IMPLIED THAT HE’S GOD:  

[John 10:30] “I and the Father are one.” At this, the Jews again picked up stones to stone Him. 

[John 13:13] “You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am.

[John 14:2-3] My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

[John 14:9-10] Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? 

[Matthew 7:22-23] Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness’”.

[Matthew 28:18] Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to me” 

[Mark 13:24-26] However, after the tribulation of those days, ‘The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And He will send out the angels to gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven. 

[Mark 14:62] “I am,” said Jesus, “and you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.” 

[Luke 23:43] And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

JESUS WAS TREATED AS GOD BY HIS APOSTLES AND OTHER PEOPLE: 

[John 1:18] No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. 

[John 11:32] When Mary came to Jesus and saw Him, she fell at His feet and said, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” 

[John 20:27-28] 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.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

[Matthew 2:11] On coming to the house, they saw the Child with His mother Mary, and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.

[Matthew 8:2] Suddenly a leper came and knelt before Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” 

[Luke 5:8] When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees. “Go away from me, Lord,” he said, “for I am a sinful man. 

[Philippians 2:10] that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 

[Revelation 21:6-7] And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

JESUS WAS ANNOUNCED IN TANAKH AS THE COMING GOD: 

[Malachi 3:1] And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts. 

: This verse says that God will send a messenger prior to His coming, this person is fulfilled by John (the Baptist) who prepared the Lord’s way by baptizing the people with water [John 1:33-34]. After that, the Lord will come to His Temple, and at the same time, He will be the messenger of the covenant that people will delight. Jesus introduced the covenant to his disciples [Luke 22:20 & Matthew 26:28].

[Micah 5:2] “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” 

: Notice the last words of this statement, the coming ruler or king exists from ancient times, so He is God. Jesus claims that He exists before Abraham was born [John 8: 57-58].

[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. 

: This verse clearly informs that the son to be born is God and the Everlasting Father.

THE SENDING OF A SPIRIT BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD: 

[Isaiah 48:16] “Come near unto me, hear this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, has sent me”

: The speaker of this verse is clearly God for He was there before the time took place, but in the second sentence, He said He is sent by the Lord God and His Spirit. This is the Spirit that descended to the Earth and took a human flesh. Jesus said, He came down from Heaven and sent by Father [John 6:38 & John 8:18]

THE KINGDOM OF GOD OR JESUS: 

The Coming of the Messiah/Christ/King 

Christ is derived from the Greek word Christos which means the Anointed, it is equivalent to Messiah a Hebrew word. Anointing is a ritual act of pouring or smearing with oil over a person’s head or body. This was used as a form of medicine by Jews thought to avert sickness and dangerous spirits. This was also used by Jews for ceremonial blessings such as the coronation of a King. The Old Testament states a lot about the coming of the Messiah. Jesus claims He is the Messiah predicted in the Old Testament [John 4:25-26], so, He is the Christ or King. The following are verses in Tanakh about the promised Messiah, King, or Christ;

[Micah 5:2] As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, seemingly insignificant among the clans of Judah – from you a King will emerge who will rule over Israel on my behalf, one whose origins are in the distant past

[Zechariah 9:9] Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

[Isaiah 52:7] How lovely on the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who announces peace And brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, And says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

: Notice the last words of this verse, “Your God reigns!” .So it is God Himself who will come and reign as King

God is a King in the Old Testament  

[Isaiah 43:15] “I am the LORD, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King

[Isaiah 44:6] “This is what the LORD says– Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God

Jesus is a King in the New Testament 

[John 18:37] “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

[Mark 15:2] Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus replied, “it is as you say.”

 In the Old Testament, God says He has Kingdom

[Isaiah 66:1] Thus says the LORD, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest?

[Jeremiah 10:10] But the LORD is the only true God. He is the living God and the everlasting King! The whole earth trembles at his anger. The nations cannot stand up to his wrath.

In the New Testament, Jesus says He has Kingdom

[John 18:36] Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”

[Luke 22:30] that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 

[Luke 23:42] Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom, ”Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you shall be with me in paradise.” 

Analysis of the Kingship

Jesus says He has kingdom not of this world and He came from heaven [John 6:38], therefore, He is the king in Heaven. If He is the king in Heaven, it means He holds the highest position in Heaven, so He is God.. Jesus said, “I and the Father are one”, so there is no conflict of their Godhood. God is one nature, but He has the capability to spread His spirit [Joel 2:28]. Just like an electricity, one nature, but it has the capability to light Billions of households. For Jesus to claim He is the king in Heaven is no different from claiming He is God.

The Kingdom is the Church 

[Matthew 9:35] Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

[Matthew 5:10] “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The Kingdom established by Christ on Earth is the Catholic Church 

[Matthew 16:18] And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 

: Simon Peter was the first head or pope of the Catholic Church.

B.) NOW, to your question that, “Jesus said, my father is greater than I, My father is greater than all, I can of my own self do nothing”. 

Jesus came out from the source Spirit, the Father God [Isaiah 6:8 & John 15:26], for this reason the Father is greater than Him, no sender is greater than the one who is sent [John 13:16]. Moreover, Jesus went to the world only to serve and do the will of the father, consider the following verses;

[John 6:38] For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who sent Me. 

: This verse says, Jesus is obeying the will of the Father. God laid a system to be followed, and this system none can change. Moreover from this statement, Jesus is originally from Heaven, so He’s not an ordinary human.

[Luke 22:27] For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

: In this verse, Jesus pointed out that the Father Spirit is greater than him in the sense that the Father is sitting at the table, than Himself who is serving the Father at the table. For instance, you serve food to your visitor at the table, he is greater than you in that sense, because you are serving him, but it doesn’t mean he is greater than you in the whole sense. In the other hand, Jesus also says He is equal with the Father, kindly read the next verses;

[John 14:10] “He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me?” 

: In this verse, Jesus claims the oneness of the Father and Him, that they are one in Spirit.

[John 10:30] Jesus says, “I and the Father are one.” At this, the Jews again picked up stones to stone Him. 

: Notice the reaction of the crowd when Jesus said this statement, they stone him because He claimed equality of God.

2.)  And remember that Jesus(pbuh) said, and on that day(Day of Judgement, they will say unto me(Christians), Lord, Lord, did we not do profess in thy name? and do mighty works in thy name? and cast out devils in thy name? I will say unto them, depart from me I never knew you. He isn’t gonna say it for the Muslim or the Hindu or the Jew. He will say it to the people who speak in his name.

ANSWER: First, I lay down the complete statements that you mentioned. They are from [Matthew 7:21-23];

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.

22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’

23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness’”.

: In verse 21, Jesus is referring to the Christians by words, who do not follow the will of God. In verse 22, Jesus is referring to the Godly Christians who were endowed with divine power, but became corrupted. And in verse 23, Jesus revealed who are these people He mentioned, they are lawbreakers, that’s why He won’t allow them to enter into His kingdom. If some Christians cannot enter into Heaven, how much more to the people who don’t believe the Father and the Son? Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the Antichrist _denying the Father and the Son [1 John 2:22].

3.)  And more, he says, I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Isreal. Are you an israeli ? Or even nearer to that, like sons of ishmael, an arab ? The answer is know.

ANSWER: Because of the faithfulness of Abraham, God blessed him and made a covenant with him. Through Abraham, all people shall be blessed [Genesis 12:3]. He promised descendants to Abraham as numerous as the stars or sand [Genesis 22:17], God kept this covenant through Jacob (a descendant of Abraham) whom later called Israel by Him. And this is the reason why Israel became God’s choice. At the time of Abraham, there were no nations yet aside from Middle East, so we could not say why our nation was not chosen. In fact we are products of this blessing, since we are part of the numerous descendants of Abraham today, the Earth has now 7.5 Billions of people.

The ultimate plan of God is to redeem the lost sheep, and who are these lost sheep? they are all of us, since all of us sinned. Consider this;

[Isaiah 53:6] All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him .

The Salvation through Christ is from the Jews and then for all generations. Consider these verses;

[Isiah 51:8] “For the moth will eat them like a garment, And the grub will eat them like wool But My righteousness will be forever, And My salvation to all generations.” 

[John 4:22] You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 

Jesus was sent for all the people, kindly read below what was His last message to His disciples before ascending to Heaven;

[Matthew 28:19] 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. 

4.) At the end, I tell you, isaiah 29:12 says, Then the book will be given to the one who is illiterate, saying, “Please read this.” And he will say, “I cannot read.” That is Muhammed. Thank you so much my brother, I respect your religion, and I think I also deserve it from you that you should respect mine even if you disagree.

ANSWER: First, I wanna say sorry for offending you Brother, I didn’t mean it, I am only revealing the truth. I respect a group that is not spreading lies and misleading people. I hope, we will not cover their lies (esp. when they are endangering our spiritual lives) for the sake of respect. I did this because I care for you, this is for your own good, that you may know that Jesus is the true God. He said the greatest love that you can give to your loved one is to give up your life to them. And that’s what He did for us, He died on the cross in loving us. He promote love and peace. Love your enemy as he said. The one who doesn’t believe the Father and the Son is the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ is Satan. Satan is the father of lies and he deceived many according to the Bible. On the other side, Allah is the best of deceivers according to Koran [3:54]. He plotted against Jews and Christians. He does not recognize the Father and Son. He tortured and corrupted Muhammad. He promote killing and fornication. Guess who he really is.

NOW, let us proceed to the verse you quoted from [Isaiah 29:12]. Brother, Islamic leaders are lying. To better understand this claim, I posted Isaiah chapter 29, from verse 9 to 12. Here they are;

[Isaiah 29:9-12]

9 If you confuse yourselves, you will be confused. If you blind yourselves, you will be blinded. You are drunk, but not from wine. You stagger, but not from liquor.

10 The LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep. He will shut your eyes. (Your eyes are the prophets.) He will cover your heads. (Your heads are the seers.)

11 To you all these visions will be like words in a book that is closed and sealed. You give this book to someone who can read, saying, “Please read this.” He answers, “I can’t read it. It’s sealed.”

12 Then you give the book to someone who can’t read, saying, “Please read this.” He answers, “I can’t read.”

: These statements of God are addressed to the unbelieving Jews who disregarded His Scriptures (this is comparable to Muslims of today that even of the evidences in front of them, still they refuse to believe on God’s original Scripture, but instead believe on man-made book [Isaiah 29:13].

In verse 9, God tells the Jews that, since they blind themselves towards His Scripture despite of the evidences, He will make them mentally blinded in actual. God will daze or confuse their minds as if they are drunk.

In verses 10-12, God says He will shut the understanding of the prophets so that people can’t understand His Scriptures, like a sealed book that no one can read its contents, they even pass the book among them (literate and illiterate alike) for reading, but no one can read and understand it.

Now Let us compare [Isaiah 29:11-12] with [Sahi Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3]

[Sahi Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3]

The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, “I do not know how to read. The Prophet added, “The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read.’ Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read but again I replied, ‘I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?’ Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and then released me and said, ‘Read in the name of your Lord, who has created (all that exists) has created man from a clot. Read!

VERSUS

[Isaiah 29:11-12] is only a description on what will happen if God close His Revelation or Scripture. The people will not understand it, since God will make their wisdom vanished

In [Isaiah 29:14], God does not say He will look for an illiterate non-Jew and have His Revelation understood by him. Likewise in these verses, the presenter of the Scripture to the readers are the people themselves who pass the Scripture to one another. These verses are not talking about Muhammad.

While [Sahi Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3] is a scene of the so-called angel Gabriel revealing the word of Allah to Muhammad. In this passage, the presenter of the Revelation is the angel. Moreover, this angel applied force on Muhammad to have his revelation read. So this passage is far different from [Isaiah 29:11-12] where there is no force applied specifically.

Islam keeps accusing the Bible that it is corrupted, but on the other hand, keeps inserting Muhammad into the Bible. That’s the wonder of Islam.

My Answers To A Muslim’s Accusations Against The Bible

QUESTIONS:

… BIBLE IS FULL OF SCIENTIFIC ERRORS & CONTRADICTIONS.( Over 50,000 Errors and Contradictions in the bible and here are a few of them:

1.) The Bible speaks about the creation of the universe. In the beginning, 1st Book of Genesis, 1st Ch., it is mentioned – It says… ‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, in six days and talks about an evening and a morning, referring to a 24 – hour day. Today scientists tell us, that the universe cannot be created in a 24-hour period of six days. Qur’an too speaks about six ‘ayyams’. The Arabic word singular is ‘yaum’ plural is ‘ayyam’. It can either mean a 24 hours day, or it is a very long period, a “Yaum”, or an epoch. Scientists say we have no objection in agreeing that the universe could have been created in 6 very long periods.

ANSWER: Christians are divided on this matter, but I agree to those who say that the creation days should be a long period. Our time is determined through rotation of the Earth with respect to the sun. In the first and second day, the Earth was not yet formed, hence we couldn’t say that the creation day mentioned in the Bible is referred to Earthly day. This creation day should be referred to Heavenly or Godly day. God must be based in Heaven while He created the universe. Though God is everything, it is unlikely that He’s within the bounds of His object of creation (the universe) while creating it. Likewise, the Bible says that a day of our Lord is like thousand years. Kindly check the following verses;

[Psalm 90:4]  A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night 

[2 Peter 3:8] But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day 

2.) Bible says in Genesis 1: 3 – 5, ‘Light was created on the first day.’ Genesis, 1:14 – 19… ‘The cause of light – stars and the sun, etc. were created on the fourth day. How can the cause of light be created on the 4th day – later than the light which came into existence on the first day? – It is unscientific.

ANSWER: In the first day, God created light amidst the darkness. Then He separated the light from the darkness, and called the light ‘day’ and darkness ‘night’. This is not a heavenly body that gives light like a star, this is the light or shine itself. While in the fourth day, the lights are referred to the shining heavenly bodies, the two great lights (the sun and moon) which God specifically made to give light on Earth, and govern the day and night, as well as be the indicators of seasons. He also made the stars in this period. If God is able to make the source of light, how much more the light itself? In fact, God is the creator of light and darkness, consider this verse;

[Isaiah 45:7] I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things 

Science is not applicable to God because He’s the one who caused it.

3.) Bible says Genesis, 1: 9 – 13… ‘Earth was created on the 3rd day. How can you have a night and day without the earth? The day depends upon the rotation of the Earth Without the earth created, how can you have a night and day?

ANSWER: I have already answered this in your first question. You claimed that you got 50,000 scientific errors and contradictions in the Bible, but out of that massive number, you choose to repeat question in line with the other.

The creation day mentioned in the Bible should be referred to Heavenly day, and not Earthly day. God must be located outside of His creation (the universe) while He created it. This night (darkness) and day (light) should be Heavenly.

4.) Genesis 1: 9-13 ‘Earth created on 3rd day.’ Genesis 1:14 -19 ‘The Sun and the Moon were created on 4th day.’… ‘Earth is part of the parent body… the sun.’ It cannot come into existence before the sun – It is unscientific.

ANSWER: To the question on which heavenly body would be created first, this not matters to God because nothing is impossible to Him [Luke 1:37]. You said this because you think that it is the sun which upholds the planets (including the Earth) in our solar system, but you failed to ask yourself who upholds the sun? It is God who upholds the sun, in fact, not just a single body in the universe, but the whole universe [Hebrew 1:3], So if God can uphold the whole Universe how much more the Earth alone? Therefore, it is very possible that God made the Earth first before the sun.

In a recent study, Science has found out that the Earth’s water is older than the sun. So it means that the Earth is older than the sun. The Bible is amazingly correct. This proves that Science is not applicable to God. 

5.) The Bible says in Genesis, 1:11 – 13…‘the vegetation, the herbs the shrubs, the trees – they were created on the 3rd day And the Sun, Genesis, 1: 14 -19, was created on the 4th day. How can the vegetation come into existence without sunlight, and how can they survive without sunlight?

ANSWER: As I have answered in your fourth question, “nothing is impossible to God”, He can create all things [Job 42:2], If He can produce a sun, then how much more the vegetation on Earth without the sun? In fact, God is light Himself [1 John 1:5] therefore He could take care of the vegetation while the sun was being prepared. The problem of our Muslim brothers is that they limit the capability of God, they look at the capability of God as human. They believe that God is everything, but ironically, they don’t believe that God could divide or multiply His Spirit, or appear to people in human form.

6.) The Bible says in Genesis, Ch. 1:16, that…‘God created two lights the greater light, the Sun to rule the day, and the lesser light the Moon, to rule the night. The actual translation, if you go to the Hebrew text, it is ‘lamps’…‘Lamps having lights of its own.’ And that you will come to know better, if you read both the Verses – Genesis, 1:16, as well as 17. Verse No.17 says…‘And Almighty God placed them in the firmament, to give light to the earth… To give light to the earth.’ Indicating, that Sun and the Moon has its own light – which is in contradiction with established scientific knowledge

ANSWER: I think you want to emphasize that the Moon has no light of its own, therefore, the Bible erred in referring it as lamp. Well, the fact that the moon could shine steadily through a whole or half night, this is as good as it has its own light or power. In our modern time, we use a lamp that is powered by solar energy and yet this lamp could shine for long as if it has its own source of power. Kindly read this verse;

[Mark 13:24] But in those days, following that distress, “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light” 

[Ezekiel 32:7]  And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud and the moon will not give its light 

: The above verses tell the relation of the sun and the moon. If God covers the sun, the Moon will not give its light, thus the light of the moon depends on the light of the sun. These verses are strikingly prophetic and scientific

7.) Regarding the concept of Earth, there are various Scientists who have described… ‘How will the world end?’ Hypothesis – Some may be right, some may be wrong. But either the world will perish or the world will live forever. Both cannot take place simultaneously – It is unscientific. But this is exactly what the Bible says. It is mentioned in the Bible, in the book of Hebrews, 1 :10 – 11, and the book of Psalms,102 :25- 26, that…‘Almighty God created the Heavens and the Earth, and they will perish.’ Exactly opposite is mentioned in the book of Ecclesiastics, 1:4, and the book of Psalms, 78:69, that… ‘The earth will abide forever.’ The world cannot abide forever as well as perish – It is unscientific.

ANSWER: Kindly read;  Psalms 102:25-26 Say The Earth will perish, But (Ecclesiastes 1:4 And Psalms 78:69) Say The Earth Abides Forever

8.) Regarding ‘the Heavens’, the Bible says in Job, 26: 11, that…‘The pillars of the Heaven will tremble.’ Qur’an says in Surah Luqman, 31:10, that…‘The Heavens are without any pillars – Don’t you see? Don’t you see the Heavens are without any pillars? – Bible says heaven have got pillars.

ANSWER:  Let us put up first the verse in question, so that to analyze it;

[Job 26:11] The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astonished at his rebuke. 

The word ‘pillar’ used in this verse means ‘foundation or mainstay’. They are not posts of a structure, this should not be taken literally.  If we say, ”the husband is the pillar of the family”, it means he is the foundation of the family, he is the chief part of the family. Consider its parallel verse below;

“[2 Samuel 22:8] Then the earth shook and quaked, the foundations of heavens were trembling and were shaken, because He was angry”. 

: So, it is the foundations of the heavens that tremble, and not the literal pillars or posts 

If a structure has no foundation or chief support, it will collapse easily. If your Koran says, “the heavens are without any pillars”, then don’t believe that, because a structure cannot stand or endure without a foundation. If your Koran does not know about Trinity on Earth, how much more in matters about universe? [by the way, your prophetic Koran thinks that the persons of Trinity are Jesus, Mary, Spirit/Allah [Koran 4:171 & Koran 5:116]

In truth, it is your Koran that contains much errors. The so-called errors in the Bible are lies and fabrications, if not, they are prompted by ignorance or incapability to comprehend the Bible. If you can notice on the passages I provided earlier, the Bible can defend itself against accusations for it provided verses to support the other, unlike Koran which cannot, Koran is far nothing compared to the Bible. The only good in Islam is LYING that the Bible is corrupted, and DENYING any evidence that can ruin their faith. I hope you can sense this fact and leave this pagan cult.

9.) Not only do the Heavens have got pillars – Bible says in the first book of Samuel,2 :8, as well as the book of Job 9:6, and the book of Psalms Ch. No.75, Verse No.3, that… ‘Even the earth has got pillars.’

ANSWER: Again you put up question similar to the other. The ‘pillar’ used in the verses you mentioned means ‘foundation or mainstay’. I’ll Lay down the verses you questioned; 

a. [1 Samuel 2:8] 

English Standard Version
He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and on them he has set the world. 

New International Version
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. “For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; on them he has set the world. 

b. [Job 9:6] 

New American Standard Bible
Who shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble; 

New Living Translation
He shakes the earth from its place, and its foundations tremble. 

c. [Psalm 75:3] 

English Standard Version
He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and on them he has set the world. 

New Living Translation
He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honor. For all the earth is the LORD’s, and he has set the world in order. 

: From the translations above, the words ‘pillars’ and ‘foundations’ are used interchangeably, so they are synonymous. 

Also check these another verses that mention about the foundations of the Earth; 

[Job 38:4] Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding 

[Isaiah 48:12-13] Listen to Me, O Jacob, even Israel whom I called; I am He, I am the first, I am also the last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together. 

Physically, had the Earth no foundations, it would have broken apart. 

10.) The Bible says in the book of Genesis, 1:29, that… ‘God has given you all the herbs bearing seeds, the trees bearing fruits – those that bear seed, as meat for you.’ New International Version says… ‘The seed bearing plants and the trees bearing fruits bearing seeds are food for you, all of them.’ Today, even a layman knows that there are several poisonous plants like wild berries, stretchy, datary, plants containing, alkaloid, polyandry, brachiopod – that which if you ingest, if you eat there are high possibilities you may die. How come the Creator of the universe and the human beings, does not know, that if you have these plants, you will die.

ANSWER: First, let me put down [Genesis 1:29], it says;

“I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food” 

Take note that when God provided these food, the soil was not yet under curse. And the first couple were in the Garden of Eden (the paradise). They could eat from any tree there except from the tree of knowledge [Genesis 2:16-17]. But not anymore after the fall of man since the ground is cursed because of them, and it started to produce harsh plants. Kindly read the proceeding verses;

[Genesis 3:17-19] Then he said to the man, “You listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree, although I commanded you, ‘You must never eat its fruit.’ The ground is cursed because of you. Through hard work you will eat [food that comes] from it every day of your life. The ground will grow thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow, you will produce food to eat until you return to the ground, because you were taken from it. You are dust, and you will return to dust.” 

11.) The Bible says in the book of Leviticus, 14:49 -53 – it gives a novel way for disinfecting a house from plague of leprosy… disinfecting a house from plague of leprosy. It says that… ‘Take two birds, kill one bird, take wood, scale it – and the other living bird, dip it in water… and under running water – later on sprinkle the house 7 times with it. Sprinkle the house with blood to disinfect against plague of leprosy? You know blood is a good media of germs, bacteria, as well as toxin – It is unscientific

ANSWER: This is not meant for cleansing the House physically, but this is more on atonement to God so that He would remove the cursed disease from that house, consider [Leviticus 14:51], it says; However, he shall let the live bird go free outside the city into the open field. So he shall make atonement for the house, and it will be clean. Moreover, Israelites surely didn’t use an animal with a defect for they knew that it’s forbidden, so the blood was safe. And also, if they sprinkled blood in the house, it doesn’t mean they left it rotten in the house, they cleaned it after, or else how could the occupier sleep inside the house? This cleansing is more on spiritual and not physical. Take note that this disease was resulted by God’s curse [Leviticus 14:34], therefore, this could be removed by God’s power as well.

12.) The book of Leviticus, 12:1 – 5, says that… ‘After a woman gives birth to a male child, she will be unclean for 7 days, and the period of un-cleanliness will continue for 33 days more. If she gives birth to a female child, she will be unclean for two weeks, and the period of un-cleanliness will continue for 66 days. In short, if a woman gives birth to a male child… ‘A son’, she is unclean for 40 days. If she gives birth to a female child… ‘a daughter’, she is unclean for 80 days – It is unscientific

ANSWER: Because in that time and place God was walking with the Israelites, He monitored them. Since He’s holy, uncleanliness is detestable to Him. God is not just particular about spiritual hygiene but also physical hygiene, consider the following verses; 

[Exodus 23:14] “Since the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to defeat your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy; and He must not see anything indecent among you or He will turn away from you.

[Leviticus 11:44] I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground.

[Exodus 19:10] The LORD also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments. 

Whenever God walked in the midst of Israelites, He required them to perform spiritual and body cleansing or else He would turn away. Now, to the question why female has a long period of cleansing than male? maybe because female has more physical uncleanness than male, particularly their periodic blood discharges. 

13.) The Bible says in Genesis, 9:13-17, that… ‘After God, at the time of Noah submerged the world by flood and after the flood’ subsided, He said… ‘I put up a rainbow in the sky as a promise to the humankind never to submerge the world again, by water. But today we know very well, that rainbow is due to the refraction of sunlight, with rain or mist. Surely there must have been thousands of rainbows before the time of Noah PBUH. To say it was not there before Noah’s time you have to assume that the law of refraction did not exist – which is unscientific.’

ANSWER: Science tells us that a rainbow occurs when raindrops and sunshine cross paths. Sunlight consists of all the colors of light, which add together to make white illumination. Therefore, no raindrops no rainbow. One of the two causes of the flood in Noah’s time was the window of heaven or the rain [Genesis 7:11]. And after the flooding, God said to Noah in [Genesis 7:12]; “I set my rainbow in the cloud as a sign of covenant between Me and earth“. God could just simply said, “I set my rainbow in the sky”, but He mentioned specifically the cloud because it is the cloud that supplements the rainbow.

Now, to your presumption that there were thousands of rainbows ahead of Noah’s time, we can refer to [Genesis 2:5-6], it says;

for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground”.

Before the flood, there was no rain. So if it had no rain, no rainbow also. If God declares that He creates this thing, He also provides the materials necessary for the realization of this thing. 

14.)  Ezra 2: 65, it says…There were 200 singing men and women – Nehemiah 7: 67…‘There were 245 singing men and women.’ Were they 200 – or were they 245 singing men and women? Context is the same – A mathematical contradiction.

ANSWER: First, Both Ezra and Nehemiah agree that the total was 42,360. And if we sum up their two lists gives you 29,818 for Ezra, and 31,089 for Nehemiah. Further calculations show that Nehemiah lists 1765 persons who are not in Ezra, and Ezra has 494 not mentioned in Nehemiah. By adding Ezra’s 494 to Nehemiah’s total, and adding Nehemiah’s 1765 to Ezra’s total, we find that they will both add up to 31,583, with every name being on both lists. Subtracting 31,583 from 42,360 gives a difference of 10,777. This difference was not broken down by name or town because they were not associated with the former Southern Kingdom. Both [Ezra 2:1] and [Nehemiah 1:3] hint that the list’s purpose was to name those of the Southern Kingdom who returned from Babylon. The 42,360 is the whole or total assembly of Israelites. Since there were long years gap from Ezra to Nehemiah in their returns to Jerusalem, I believe there was adjustment made in Ezra’s time, and 45 were added to the previous 200 singers. This 45 must be coming from the undesignated or unnamed 10,777 people in the list.

Second, assuming that this slight numerical disagreement occurred, this cannot discount the veracity of the history since there are many categories or figures that are agreeing. Just like when there are two witnesses testifying against you that you robbed a house. One witness stated that, he saw you coming from the house at 3 a.m. last night carrying a large bag, you were wearing a black jacket and a cap. The other witness also stated that he also saw you coming from the house carrying a large bag at around 2:30 a.m. last night, you were wearing a black jacket and a cap. The verdict is you actually robbed that house since there are many agreeing facts not minding the minutes differential of time.

Third, we should identify from whom the information comes, is it from God or not, and which type of information is this, is it prophetic or historical? As you know, the Bible contains not just prophetic but also historical. In the historical side, the Bible could contain any event. For instance, King David lusted Uriah’s wife Bathsheba in the Bible, this is not ideal, but it should be part of the history since it actually happened. Early Christians were not hiding something even hideous realities (this proves that Christians did not correct the Bible contrary to the accusation of Islam, if so, you could not find any numerical discrepancy inside). This numerical contradiction is historical. The Bible claims that it is God-inspired when it comes to God, when it comes to matters about prophesy. Kindly read the following verses;

[2 Peter 1:20] “Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit”.  

A Scripture containing a prophetic blunder like Koran is not of God.

15.) It is mentioned in the 2nd Kings 24: 8, that…‘Jehoiachin was 18 years old, when he reign Jerusalem, and he reigned for 3 months and 10 days. 2nd Chronicles 36: 9 says that…‘Jehoiachin was 8 years old when he reign and he reigned for 3 months, 10 days. Was Jehoiachin 18 years when he began to reign, or was he 8 years old? Did he reign for 3 months, or did he reign for 3 months 10 days?

[2Kings 24:8] Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother’s name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.

[2Chronocles 36:9] Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD. 

ANSWER: According to Ellicott’s Bible Commentary, [2Chroniicles 36:9] has correctly “eighteen;” and so some MSS., LXX. (Alex.), Syriac, Arabic. The difference turns on the omission of the smallest Hebrew letter, namely, yod, which is a numeral represents ‘ten’. 

Three months and ten days: Syriac and Arabic here have “one hundred days,” i.e., three months and ten days. Thenius thinks the ten days were added, in order that the catastrophe of Jehoiachin’s reign might fall on a tenth day of the month, like the investment of Jerusalem and the fall of the city under Zedekiah (2Chronicles 25:1; 2Chronicles 25:8).

So, Jehoiachin was 18 years and reigned three months

16.) 1st Kings 7:26, that…‘In Solomon’s temple, in his molten sea, he had 2000 baths. In 2nd Chronicles 4:5, he had 3000 baths. Did he have 2000 baths or did he have 3000 baths?

ANSWERS: It depends on how the verses are translated because in other translation these two verses differ in message, kindly read; 

Darby Bible Translation 

[1 Kings 7:26] “And its thickness was a handbreadth, and its brim was like the work of the brim of a cup, with lily-blossoms; it held two thousand baths”.

[2 Chronicles 4:5] “And its thickness was a handbreadth, and its brim like the work of the brim of a cup, with lily-blossoms; in capacity it held three thousand baths”. 

According to Jewish Bible Targum, the writer of [1 Kings 7:26] emphasized the usual content of the pool which was sufficient for use. While the writer of [2 Chronicles 4:5] emphasized the capacity of the pool if it were filled to the brim.

17.) In trinity they have : jesus is god , holy spirit is god , father is god … and … jesus is not father is not holy spirit .. so 1+1+1=3 !!! illogic

ANSWER: God is one nature [Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 4:11, & Malachi 2:10] but God presented Himself to mankind in these three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Christianity is not inventing story, they have proofs from the OLD and NEW TESTAMENTS. Consider these verses about Trinity:

Trinity from Hebrew Bible/Old Testament:

[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 (or Spirit of truth), Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. 

:This verse mentions that the son to be born will be called Counselor (Spirit of Truth), mighty God, and everlasting Father. This points out the oneness of the Son, Spirit, and Father.

[Isaiah 48:16] “Come near to Me, listen to this: From the first I have not spoken in secret, From the time it took place, I was there. And now the Lord God (or Father) has sent Me (Jesus or Son), and His Spirit.”

COMMENT: The speaker of this verse claimed that He already existed from the beginning; so it means, He is God. And then He proceeded, “and now the Lord has sent Me with His Spirit” ; so, the speaker God is sent by Sovereign Lord with His Spirit. Notice that there are three persons mentioned in this verse: the speaker God who is sent, the Sovereign Lord who is the sender, and the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord. The sender Lord is the source or Father of the Spirit; and the messenger God is the emanated Spirit who came to Earth and became Jesus, the Son of God [Luke 1:35]. The speaker God could easily just say, “the Sovereign Lord has sent me”, but He mentioned about “Spirit“; so, God emphasizes the interrelation among the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. This verse portrays Trinity.

Trinity from the New Testament:

[Matthew 28:19] 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.

[John 5:7] For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 

: Koran also testifies that Jesus is the word and spirit of Allah [Koran 3:45 & 4:171]

Moreover, there are evidences in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament about the existence of the Son, kindly read;

[Proverbs 30:4] Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Whose hands have gathered up the wind? Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is the name of his Son? Surely you know!

[Psalm 2:11-12] Worship the LORD with reverence And rejoice with trembling. Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him! 

READ: THE MYSTERY OF TRINITY FATHOMED

18.) we know that god is eternal has no beginning and no end, but jesus “as you say” has a begining (his birth)

ANSWER: Kindly read;  God Is Eternal And Has No Beginning, If Jesus Is God, Why He Has A Beginning (His birth)?

19.) we know that God is the greatest thing ever, but jesus (as you say ) said ” you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I” [John 14:28] so he is not the greater thing.

ANSWER: Jesus came out from the source Spirit, the Father God [Isaiah 6:8 & John 15:26], for that reason the Father is greater than Him. No messenger is greater than the sender as Jesus said in [John 13:16]. Moreover, Jesus went to the world only to serve, consider the statement of Jesus below;

[Luke 22:27] For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

: In this verse, Jesus pointed out that the Father Spirit is greater than him in the sense that the Father is sitting at the table, than Himself who is serving the Father at the table. For instance, you serve food to your visitor at the table, he is greater than you in that sense, because you are serving him, but it doesn’t mean he is greater than you in the whole sense. The persons of God are co-equal since they are one in nature. If your Allah can not show to you in flesh, then he is not God, for all things are possible to God [Matthew 19:26]. Our God Yahweh visited us in human form and performed miracles before the many [Isaiah 52:10]

20.) we all know that god can do anything , but in the bible jesus said “By myself I can do nothing” [John 5:30] -> if he really can’t do nothing, then he is not a god , or he is lying ?? also if lying not a god

ANSWER: My friend, there is a continuation of the verse you quoted. Here is the complete one;

[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. 

: As you can notice in this verse, there is a reason why Jesus can do nothing, it is because He seeks to please the Father who sent Him. Obviously, this doesn’t mean He cannot do anything for He can perform miracles and even rise from death, what He meant is that all of His works and speeches are in accordance with the will of the Father. This is part of His role as a messenger and servant. 

Consider the following verses telling that Jesus does the will of the Father; 

[John 6:38] For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who sent Me. 

[John 14:10] Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 

[John 5:19] So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. 

COMMENT: . . . I am in the Father and the Father is in me . . . the Father who dwells in me does his works . . . Whatever the Father does, the Son also doesThese statements emphasize that there is oneness of the Father and Jesus. In fact Jesus said that He and the Father are one [John 10:30]

21.) by definition : God knows everything, here is what jesus said in the bible “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” [Mark 13:32] -> jesus doesn’t know everything

ANSWER: Kindly read;  If Jesus Is God, Why He Did Not Know the Last Hour? [Mark 13:32]

22.) “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” [Mark 15:34] jesus said “my god” so he is not a son of god what do you think !!! lot of contradictions in your bible hein !? i proved to you that jesus is human from your book nothing else , if you didn’t understand this you probably don’t use your brain.

ANSWER:  Kindly read;  Why Jesus Cried Out, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?”

23.) (Matthew 24:29-33 & Mark 13:24-29) accompanied by signs, but in (Luke 17:20-21) not accompanied by signs

[Matthew 24: 29-33] immediately after the tribulation of those days: The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 

[Luke 17:20-21] Now having been questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” 

ANSWER : [Matthew 24:29-33 & Mark 13:24-29] state about the condition of the universe after the Tribulation or Judgment Day, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, etc.. While [Luke 17:20] states about the Kingdom of God. I believe the Pharisees did not understand what Jesus was talking about, for they thought the kingdom of God would come with signs like the Judgment Day, where in fact, the Kingdom of God was already in their midst brought by Jesus.

The kingdom of God is the Church (Catholicism). Jesus was right in answering them that the Kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed. Kindly read;

[Matthew 9:35] Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

[Luke 8:1] Soon afterwards, He began going around from one city and village to another, proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God. The twelve were with Him

24.) [Matthew 21:7] Jesus rides two animals during his triumphal entry, but in [Mark 11:7, Luke 19:35, & John 12:14], Jesus rides only one animal

[Matthew 21:7] They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on.

[Mark 11:7] And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it.

[Luke 19:35] So they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it for him to ride on.

[John 12:14-15] Jesus found a young donkey and rode on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said: “Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. See, your King is coming, seated on the colt of a donkey.” 

ANSWER:  I think [Matthew 21:7] is just not correctly translated by others, because the Aramaic Bible Plain English translated it as;

“And they brought the donkey and the colt and they placed their garments on the colt and Yeshua rode upon it” 

COMMENT: This verse tells us that Yeshua (Jesus) only rode the colt.  Just a common sense, it is unrealistic for a person to ride two animals together especially when the other is short.

25.) [Matthew 10:28 & Luke 12:4] Jesus said not to fear men, but in [Matthew 12:15-16] [John 7:1-10, 8:59, 10:39, 11:53-54] Jesus hid, escaped, or went secretly 

[Matthew 10:28] Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 

[John 10:39] Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.

ANSWER:  Jesus hid himself from His attacker not because He was afraid of them, but because it was not yet time for Him to die. Consider the following verses below;

[John 7:30] So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.

[John 7:8] “You go up to this feast; I am not going up now to this feast, because my time is not yet finished.” 

But just before Passover festival it was time for him to die, kindly read the verses below;

[Matthew 26:1-2] When Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples, “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is to be handed over for crucifixion.”

[John 13:1] It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 

COMMENT: The verses above tell that Jesus’ time to die has come and He is ready to submit Himself to His attacker

26.) [Acts 7:55 & Hebrews 12:2] tells Jesus sit at the right hand of the Father. See, you have two Gods. So which of them is the real God in Heaven?

[Acts 7:55] But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God 

[Hebrews 12:2] We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne 

ANSWER: As I have said, Jesus was a Spirit of God who came down from Heaven to save the world. They are one nature, where is the conflict there? Kindly observe the following verse;

[Isaiah 48:16] “I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there I Am; and now the Sovereign Lord has sent Me with his Spirit”.

: The speaker of the verse above says that He exists even before the Creation period, so He is God. And then, this God is sent by the Sovereign Lord with His Spirit.

Jesus told us that a Spirit could come out from the Father (source Spirit). And also, He has the capacity to send a spirit from the Father. Take notice of the verse below;

[John 15:26] “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about Me.

Jesus also told us that He was sent by the Father (sender Spirit), consider the following verses;

[John 8:18] I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bear witness of me.

[John 12:49] “For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.

As well as, Jesus told us that they are one with the Father, kindly read the verses below;

[John 10:30]  I and the Father are one 

[John 14:10] He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? 

Even Koran confirms that Jesus is a spirit of Allah, please read;

[66:12] And Mary, daughter of ‘Imran, whose body was chaste, therefor We breathed therein something of Our Spirit. And she put faith in the words of her Lord and His scriptures, and was of the obedient. 

[21:91] And she who was chaste, therefor We breathed into her something of Our Spirit and made her and her son a token for (all) peoples.

: The above verses tell us that Jesus is a spirit of Allah. Verse [4:158] supports the above verses, it tells that Allah took Jesus up unto himself, meaning, Allah returned Jesus unto his Spirit. If Muslims cannot accept this truth, it means that their Koran is not telling the truth. If Koran is telling lies, then Islam is a lie.

God is one being, but He has the capability to divide His Spirit into many; just like water, one nature, but has the capability to scatter upon different places of the earth, and reversely, it has the capability to converge from different places into one body. God can pour His Spirit on all flesh [Joel 2:28]; meaning, He can distribute His Spirit to all the people. God could separate His Spirit and appear to us with His two or numerous persons.

27.) [Matthew 5:22] anger by itself is a sin, but in [Ephesians 4:26] anger is not necessarily a sin

[Matthew 5:22] But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

[Ephesians 4:26] And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry 

ANSWER:  I don’t see any conflict between these two;

In [Matthew 5:22], the first and second sentence, Jesus does not say you sin if you’re angry, but you are in danger of judgment or council, meaning you are close to committing a sin. And in the third sentence, by calling your fellow a fool from anger, makes you sinned, this time you are in danger of the hellfire. 

While [Ephesians 4:26] means you don’t do something bad from anger, see to it that it will disappear before you sleep at night. In a nutshell, to get angry is normal, but to do wrong from anger is punishable in hellfire.

28.) [Matthew 5:22] anger by itself is a sin, but in [Matthew 11:22-24 & Luke 10:13-15] Jesus curses certain cities

[Matthew 11:21-23] Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades. For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 

ANSWER: Again, [Matthew 5:22] does not say anger alone is sinful, but to do wrong because of anger is punishable in hellfire.

Jesus is not cursing in [Matthew 11:21-23], but prophesying on what will happen to those unrepentant places (Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum) on the Day of judgment. Cursing is when you wish a doom to befall upon someone or something. Being God, Jesus knew that the places which have witnessed His miracles are worse than the punished cities in the old (Tyre, Sidon, and Sodom) which were not able to witness His miracles. For if His miracles had been performed in those cities, they would have repented. Therefore, the punishment to be received by (Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum) is more severe than the punishment received by (Tyre, Sidon, and Sodom).

29.) Contradictions: [Matthew 28:1] the first visitor of the tomb were Mary Magdalene and the other Mary (with two visitors) ; [Mark 16:1] the visitors were two Mary plus Salome (with three visitors) ; [Luke 23:55, 24:1, 24:10] Mary Magdalene and joana, Mary mother of james, and other women. (At least 5 visitors)

ANSWER: Let us put down the said verses first;

[Matthew 28:1] “After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb”.

Mark 16:1-2] “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.” Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb

[Luke 24:1] On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.

[Luke 24:10] It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, who told these things unto the apostles.

[Mark 16:1] states that the three women bought spices, this is not yet the actual day of visiting the tomb of Jesus. And then in [Mark 16:2], the day of visiting came. [Luke 24:1] confirms [Mark 16:1], the women had prepared spices before going to the tomb. Probably Salome was not able to accompany the two Maries at the actual visiting that’s why she wasn’t mentioned, or maybe the authors just did not mention her. Note that this incident was reported by three authors, every reporter has the right whether or not to include the lesser character in his report. These three authors had commonly stated the two Maries in their reports. Matthew just opted to report the important characters, while Luke opted to be more specific. [Mark 16:1-2 & Luke 24:10] are not in contradiction with [Matthew 28:1], but rather in support. It shows that not only the two Maries were visiting the tomb of Jesus, but they had companions.

30.) [Matthew 5:17-19 & Luke 16:17] Jesus did not come to abolish the law, but in [Ephesians 2:13-15 & Hebrews 7:18-19] Jesus abolished the law of Moses

ANSWER : Kindly read ; In [Matthew 5:17-18], Jesus did not come to abolish the law, but in [Ephesians 2:13-15], Jesus abolished the law of Moses
