Arabs, Muslims, are you going to get to the Kingdom of Heaven?

The Kingdom of Heaven is a place where HOLY God lives.

So, if you want to be there then you should be holy.

Look brothers, conversation between Muslims about me:

….I just add that let the 3-face Bahira to die in hate and tease of the most growing religion Islam …

– Keep Bahira to live in her aimless world, her  called Kingdom of Heaven  for her called God Issah Allah………?

Hebrews 12 (New King James Version)

Hebrews 12

The Race of Faith
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Discipline of God

3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. 4 You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. 5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”

7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Renew Your Spiritual Vitality
12 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.
14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16 lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.
The Glorious Company
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. 20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.” 21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”)

22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

-Brothers, below we will read with you how the Kingdom of Heaven looks like and the city of the living God Jesus called  the New Jerusalim.

Hear the Heavenly Voice
25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 13

Concluding Moral Directions
1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. 3 Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.

4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 6 So we may boldly say:

“ The LORD is my helper;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?”

Concluding Religious Directions

7 Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

10 We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. 13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach. 14 For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come. 15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. 16 But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

17 Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

Prayer Requested

18 Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably. 19 But I especially urge you to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

Benediction, Final Exhortation, Farewell

20 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
22 And I appeal to you, brethren, bear with the word of exhortation, for I have written to you in few words. 23 Know that our brother Timothy has been set free, with whom I shall see you if he comes shortly.
24 Greet all those who rule over you, and all the saints. Those from Italy greet you.
25 Grace be with you all. Amen.

Revelation 21

All Things Made New
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
14 Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. 16 The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. 17 Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. 18 The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. 19 The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem

22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Testimonies

I was in the mosques two months ago to perform my prayer. The mosque was filled with nearly 2000 people. Someone beside me told me if I wanted to pray to the real God. I looked at him curiously and asked which God? He gave me a New Testament in Farsi. I took the book home and the following day I called to the number provided to me and asked if we could meet and also said that I needed a couple of more New Testaments!  I went with my brother and a friend. I was impressed that the guy who gave me the New Testament in the mosque was not afraid to meet three of us. When we saw each other, I started to ask questions while the guy showed me a note of hope written by an American Christian. In the note it was written how Christians in America are praying with tears to God that we would know the real savior.  We listened to the testimony of how Ali himself (the guy who gave the Bible in the mosque) had come to the Lord. I understood only by grace of Jesus I could be saved. I was impressed how easy it is to become Christian. Then we went to Ali’s house and he showed us the DVD of life of Christ. After watching the film I simply gave my heart to Jesus and so did my friend. Because of one New Testament we got saved and now we are part of underground church program. Thank you for taking a part in my salvation. If it was not for your prayers and support and the efforts of my brothers in TOC underground church, I could never know Jesus as my personal savior.

I am 33-years-old and live in Tehran. Three years ago I gave my heart to Jesus through TOC house churches. Last month I was taken to prison because my hair was shown from my scarf. I was arrested in the street by Islamic guard. As I was going home suddenly a car stopped and two women pushed me in to the car. I am part of TOC house churches. I was afraid they had found out my conversion but then I understood I was arrested because my hair was shown. The minutes the radical Muslim women were shouting at me in the car, I was praying to God and thanking Him that my arrest was not because of my conversion. But I was scared that they would kill me if they find out. They took me to prison and brought a paper that I sign to promise that I must be careful with my hijab (Islamic covering). I signed the papers in order to get out of prison. I was afraid if any thing comes up with my conversion they would kill me. As I was sitting on the ground in the cell I made my mind even if they found out about my conversion I would never return to Islam even if they kill me. I was crying and praying to God with all my heart. I was already praying with a huge authority and power. I cried out to God to open the doors of prison to me and I would go out. 2-3 hours I prayed in that cell while suddenly a prosecutor woman with such evil face entered in my cell. She pushed me to the corner of the cell and slapped 5-6 times in my face and was squeezing my right ear in her hands and held her finger before my eye and told me I was going to be released but if one more time I was caught she personally would not let me go alive out of that prison. I was under pain but I knew the answer to my prayer had come. I wanted to shout out of joy when she said I was going out of jail. It did not matter they hit me but my prayer was answered to go out without my conversion to be revealed. One side of my face was numbed. She had slapped me so hard. I went to a house meet the day after. There I was given a note of hope. It made me read it several time and such joy came over me that American Christians are praying for us so faithfully. The note said we are praying for strength and wisdom for you. Be strong and know you are not alone. I knew the hours I was in prison it was with prayers of my brothers and sisters that they did not find out about my conversion and though I was beaten and humiliated but released. Thank you Christians in America for your notes and your prayers.

I suffered 6 long years with very painful arthritis in my feet. It was so terrible that the doctors had to do surgery. Within 6 years After 13 operations they told me there was no cure for my arthritis. While I was hopeless and in my sever pain the good news came to me through my sister. She told me Jesus Christ can heal you. I was in the street when she said that and I started to cry. My sister took me to a house prayer meeting. I went there expecting a miracle will happen. I was given a New Testament with two verses from it to go home with (James 5:15 and John 14:14). I was also given a note of hope written by 10-year-old Sara. I cried when I read her note. On the way home at the end of the night there was no pain. I was walking with no pain after 6 years. I whispered name of Jesus all the way. I was laughing and crying. Jesus had healed me. To day I want to be a testimony all over my country, Iran. Thank you for your prayers. Your faithfulness brought Jesus in to my life. I have Sara’s note in my Bible and will read it over and over when I become weak.

Questions and Answers

Did Isa Al-Massih Come Only to Bani Israel?

My friend in Jordan, you have asked a wonderful question that would normally require many pages to answer.  I will try my best to condense my response.

Both Scripture and history provide answers to this question.  In the Injil according to John, chapter 1, verse 11 and 12, we read “He (Jesus Christ) came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.  Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

The Scripture further reveals that one of the great prophets of the first century A.D., Paul the apostle struggled with this same questions.  Paul speaks clearly in Ephesians 3:2 about the mystery made known to him by revelation.  Paul identified that mystery in verse 6 when he says, “This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus  (Isa Al-Masih)”.  And in verse 8 he continues, “Although I am less than the least of all God’s people, this grace was given me; to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ (Al-Masih).”  Of course, in general the word “Gentiles” simply refers to those who are not of Bani-Israel.

Part of the “revelation” that Paul the Apostle refers to in Ephesians 3:2 came to him  as he traveled from Jerusalem to Damascus.  In the Acts of the Apostles 26:13-14 the Scripture records that Paul fell to the ground as the result of a light from heaven.  And in verses 15 to 18, it says that he heard the following words:  I am Jesus (Isa), whom you are persecuting…..Now get up and stand on your feet.  I have appeared to you, to appoint you as a servant and as a witness of what you have seen of me and what I will show you.  I will rescue you from your own (Jewish) people and from the Gentiles.  I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”

The Apostle Paul was so convinced that Isaiah had come to all humankind that in Romans 10:11-13 he said “…..the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame; for there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him for “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved…”

Second, history itself shows us that Isa Al-Masih did not come only to Bani-Israel.  While for the most part the Jewish people have rejected Isa Al-Masih, millions and millions of Gentiles have discovered his “unsearchable riches.”.

Q7: Why would Jesus deliberately obscure the gospel by speaking in parables so that people would not understand, turn, and be forgiven (Mark 4:11-12)? Did he not come that all men might be saved?

A: Jesus was referring to Isaiah 6:9,10. Jesus spoke in parables to be merciful! Here are four points to the answer.

1) God wants all to be saved (2 Peter 3:9; Ezekiel 17:23).

2) But some have chosen to reject God’s word and there are consequences for that in this life. These kind of people become hardened in their hearing, hardening their hearts. (Exodus 8:15,32; 9:17,34;Pr28:14; Romans 1:18-20; Hebrews 3:12-15;Zc7:12)

3) For people who reject God, it is better for them not to know truth than to know the truth and turn their backs on it, according to 2 Peter 2:20-22.

4) A parable is appropriate because those who want to follow God can be guided to know its meaning, and a parable will be not be understood by those who do not want to follow God.

If someone has already rejected the truth they know of God, God is not obligated to give them more truth.

Q10: Why was Jesus disrespectful of his mother? (see Matthew 12:46-50, Mark 3:31-35, Luke 8:19-21, John 2:4) In John 2:4, Jesus uses the same words with his mother that demons use when they meet Jesus. (Compare John 2:4 with Matthew 8:29, Mark 5:7, Luke 4:34, and Luke 8:28 in literal translation ). Surely the son of God knew that Mary had the blessing of the Father, didn’t he, not to mention that the son of God would never be rude?

A: Jesus was not disrespectful of His mother, and we should not be either. However, if God commands us to do something or not do something, God’s command is a higher priority than our parents. Likewise in Matthew 12:46-50, Mark 3:31-35, Luke 8:19-21, Jesus’ mother and brothers were outside when Jesus was speaking. When Jesus was told, He did God’s will and finished speaking. Jesus said that those closest in God’s family were not the people biologically closest to Jesus, but those who did God’s will.

In John 2:4 Jesus was telling His mother that His time was not yet come.

Perhaps the questioner did not understand. In Matthew 8:29; Mark 5:7; Luke 4:34; it is the demons, not Jesus, who are speaking. It Luke 8:28 it is the demon-possessed man who is speaking. I looked in Green’s literal translation, I did not see anything relevant to the question.

Q11: Why did Jesus lie to his brothers about going to Jerusalem (John 7:8-10)? Did God the Father send a lying spirit, as he did in 1 Kings? Like Father, like Son? (The “yet” inserted in some modern translations is not found in the earliest extant manuscripts. This is an example of modern emendation of holy scripture. The more honest translations, like the King James Version, print “yet” in italics, indicating that the word has been added in translation. The New American Standard Bible does not insert the word, remaining true to the critical Greek text. But the New International Version inserts “yet” in normal typeset, relegating the explanation of its dubious character to a footnote, where many uncritical readers will miss

it. )
A: You mention three points which I will take in a different order.

a) Did Jesus in the Bible lie?

b) Did Jesus lie like God in the Bible lied?

c) Are translations of Holy books dishonest in their translation?

I want to first answer each part relating to the Bible, and then contrast this with Allah in the Qur’an and hadiths, and comparison of honesty in translating the Qur’an.

Christianity-A) Jesus did not lie, because Jesus did NOT say He was never going to Jerusalem ever again, but that He was not going to Jerusalem at that time, and so he was not going with them. Later He did not. “Yet” after not IS in the earliest Greek manuscripts, but we will deal with that later.

Islam-A) In the Qur’an Sura 3:54 Allah is called the best of schemers/deceivers. The Arabic word is the one used for a deceiver or liar, though it can also mean schemer. The Iraqi information minister quoted this verse of the Qur’an, and the way he gave out information showed how he interpreted it. Islam teaches that God deceives (not just schemes but deceives) His very own people in at least two ways. In the end time judgment Allah will ask the Jews [who allegedly worshipped Ezra as the son of God] what they want, and they will ask for a drink. Allah will present Hell to them appearing as a mirage, tell them to drink, and by Allah’s lie they will be fooled into going to the mirage and falling down into Hell. The same will be for Christians. Then Allah will appear to His own people (both obedient and mischievous) in a deceiving shape. Then the prophet will say they will be able to recognize Allah by his “shin” (i.e. the lower leg bone). So Allah will uncover His shin, and then they will see that it is Allah. You can read all of this in Bukhari 9:532 p.396.

Christianity-B) God does not lie (Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29, Hebrews 6:18). In 1 Kings God did not lie, but He had a lying demon put lies in the mouths of false prophets. God allows evil, and He even uses evil people and evil demons for His purposes.

Islam-B) Islam teaches that Allah allows his faithful followers to be deceived, and misled into practicing “shirk” (or idolatry and joining partners with God). They teach that Jesus did not really die on the cross; someone else died instead. Now I do not see a problem with God fooling the evil Romans and Jewish authorities. But I see a big problem with Islam’s thesis that Allah let all of the followers of Jesus be deceived. So for almost 600 years Allah let all Christians believe that Jesus really died when Allah did a supernatural miracle to fool them, and never told anybody. Furthermore, the Old Testament from before the time to Christ and the Gospels all teach that God is a Father. Now if that were wrong, that could not be such a serious sin as the Qur’an says to believe that, because Allah allowed all who wanted to follow Him believe that for centuries. Either there was one big lie prior to Mohammed, or else Mohammed invented a big lie. It has to be one or the other.

Christianity-C) I hope you did not get this question from a web site, because this question is using a lie to make a strong accusation. “Not yet” (oupo in Greek, Strong’s 3768) is in the earliest extant Greek manuscripts, notably p66 and p75. Rather than just taking the word of Aland et al. I looked it up and it is clearly in both. There are no gaps or holes in the manuscripts here.

“Not yet” is found in p66, p75, Vaticanus, Byzantine Lectionary, some Syriac, Sahidic Coptic, and later manuscripts.

“Not (ouk in Greek) is present in Sinaiticus, Bezae Cantabrigiensis, Bohairic Coptic, some Syriac, Armenian, Ethiopic, Georgian, Diatessaron, Chrysostom, and later manuscripts.

So there is much evidence for both views, and the NIV actually handles this the best by putting yet in the text and putting in a footnote.

Islam-C) Yusuf ‘Ali put in a few manuscript variations in the Qur’an in his translation. I understand that they later burned His Qur’anic translation in Saudi Arabia. The latest I have seen from Saudi Arabia has not manuscript variations whatsoever. So on one hand you can (incorrectly) criticize the NIV because it mentions something is a manuscript variation. On the other hand, you do not criticize total lack of manuscript variations for the Qur’an. For example, ‘Ubai’s copy of the Qur’an did not contain some suras that are in the Qur’an today. The Muslims scholar Baidawi mentions variants on Suras 3:100; 6:91; 19:35; 28:48; 33:6 and others.

Should Sura 33:6 says “The prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers.” as ‘Uthman’s standardized text reads?

Or should it say “The prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and he is a father to them, and his wives are their mothers.” As the text of ‘Ubai b. Ka’b reads?

You can read more of this in The Qur’an and the Bible by William F. Campbell p.123.

Q11: Why did Jesus say the ruler’s daughter was not dead? (Matthew 9:18-25; Luke 8:41-56) Either Jesus lied, or he performed no miracle, but the context clearly shows that it was understood to be a miracle.
A: There are two possibilities. First Jesus could have been using a metaphor. Even in the Qur’an it says that Allah disdains not to use metaphors in Sura 2:26. However, there is a simpler explanation. Jesus never said she was dead, it was Jairus and the people who said she was dead. Either she was actually in a regular coma, or some other way in which her spirit had not left the body.
Q12: Why was the doctrine of the Trinity [allegedly] unknown to the church until the fourth century? Why was the doctrine [allegedly] established by vote instead of by revelation? Why was the membership of the voting council [allegedly] loaded with Athanasians? Why was belief in this [allegedly] then-new doctrine made a condition for membership in the church? Why were Arians exiled and executed?

A: It seems common for people to make up false things about the Trinity. The doctrines of the Trinity are in both the Bible and early Christian writings. Even in the actual word “Trinity” has framed a lie as a question and is off by over a hundred years. hundreds of years. The first reference to the Trinity is by:

bishop Theophilus of Antioch (168-181/188 A.D.) in his Letter to Autolycus 2:15.

Here are other references that use the word “Trinity”

Tertullian (200-220 A.D.) was the second we have record of using the term “Trinity”, in his letter Against Praxeus.

Novatian (210-280 A.D.) from Rome wrote a 32-chapter book, Treatise on the Trinity.

Clement of Alexandria (wrote 193-217/220 A.D.) also spoke of “the Holy Trinity” in Stromata 5:14.

Origen (230-254 A.D.) mentions the Trinity in de Principiis Book 1 3:7.

There are many, many more early references showing that people believed Jesus was God and other key aspects of the trinity. Here is a partial listing.

Arians were exiled, but I am not aware of any Arians that were executed.

Since the questioner tells falsehoods, it is not unreasonable to see that he has told lies about the other parts. One wonders if he has read the records of the Nicene Council [as I have]. Many, perhaps most of the people there were not clear about the nature of the controversy at the beginning. No substantial conclusions were reached until an Arian clearly elucidated the Arian doctrine. Then the action of Christians was a foregone conclusion.

The doctrine of the Trinity was established by revelation: it was by past revelation, already revealed in the New Testament.

Now let’s look at Islam and what they had instead of councils to settle their differences.

The Battle of the Camel: A’isha, wife of Mohammed and her two generals, both promised paradise by Mohammed, unsuccessfully fought against ‘Ali. The two generals [apparently] gained martyrdom [because Mohammed promised them paradise], fighting against the caliph.

The Battle of Siffin: Mu’awiya and his army from Syria fought ‘Ali’s army.

‘Ali wiped out the Khairjites, who had formerly supported him prior to Siffin.

The Mu’tzalites were violently persecuted, in part because they taught that the Qur’an was created.

The Sufi’s were often persecuted and killed.

Or does perhaps the questioner think a council should not settle things by consensus or vote, but by killing of the opposition in traditional Muslim style.

Q14: If Father and Son are co-equal persons, why did Jesus pray to the Father? (Matthew 11:25). Can God pray to God?
A: This is a good question and there are two issues here: submission and communication.

Submission: Before coming to earth, Jesus voluntarily emptied Himself (Philippians 2:6-8), becoming like us (Hebrews 2:17)

On earth, Jesus submitted to God the Father (Hebrews 5:7)

As He was leaving, Jesus asked the Father to restore to Him the glory He had before the world began (John 17:5).

Communication: Even in Heaven, there is complete communication between the Father, Son, and Spirit. God can communicate with God, since God is a tri-personal being.

Q15: How can there be an eternal Son when the Bible speaks of the begotten Son, clearly indicating that the Son had a beginning? (John 3:16; Hebrews 1:5-6). That’s why the word “Begotten” was omitted from any new version dated after 1971!!!

A: I am not sure what the questioner is talking about. I am not sure the questioner knows what he is talking about. One of the two most popular adult Bibles today is the New King James Bible (New Testament copyright 1979). It has begotten for both verses.

Jay P. Green’s Interlinear Translation of the Bible (original copyright 1976) has the word begotten in both places.

It is true that other translation say “only” son, but that still means “uniquely-begotten” or as the Wuest translation says, or one-and-only.

It sounds like the questioner is thinking that if the Son came from the Father, then the son had to have a beginning point where He was created. May I remind the Muslim reader that almost all Muslims (Mut’zalites and a few others excepted) that Muslims believe the Qur’an was uncreated, yet the Qur’an came from Allah.

Q16: If Jesus is on the throne, how can He sit on the right hand of God? (Mark 16:19). Does He sit or stand on the right hand of God? (Acts 7:55). Or is He in the Father’s bosom? (John 1:1)
A: In Christianity He can be at the right hand of God in a roughly similar way as in Islam Allah can have a throne, – both are metaphors. Since Sura 2:26 says Allah disdains not to use the similitude of things, do you think God ever used similtudes when He gave the Torah and gospels?

Q21: John baptized for repentance (Matthew 3:11). Since Jesus was supposedly without sin, he had nothing to repent of. The fact that he was baptized by John has always been [actually never been] an embarrassment to the church. The gospels offer no explanation for Jesus’ baptism, apart from the [allegedly] meaningless explanation given in Matthew 3:14-15 “to fulfill all righteousness.” Other passages, which indicate that Jesus did not consider himself sinless, are also [allegedly] an embarrassment to the church (Mark 10:18, Luke 18:19).
A: First let’s talk about Christianity, and then in Islam the embarrassment of the “sinless” prophet who had to repeatedly ask for forgiveness and cleansing for his sin.

When one dismisses part of scripture as “meaningless” and then says there is no meaning, perhaps it is simply that one does not wish to understand the meaning.

Jesus was baptized as an example for us, and as an identification with us. If the questioner can understand why Jesus was present at the last supper, when partaking the bread and wine signified the remembrance the Jesus’ body and blood, then the questioner might understand why Jesus was baptized.

Let’s ask a simple question: did Allah grant of deny Mohammed’s repeated request? When Mohammed prayed to have his sins forgiven, when Mohammed prayed to be cleansed, and when Mohammed was fearful of the torment of the grave [not Hell but the grave] did Allah tell Mohammed “stop misleading these people. I cannot forgive your sins because you have none to forgive”. Did Allah say, “Yes I forgive you of your wicked sins”, or did Allah not say anything? See Sura 40:55; 48:1-2; Bukhari 1:711 p.398; 1:7,19,781; 6:3; 8:319, 8:407 prior.

Did Mohammed lie here? Mohammed prayed, “I wronged myself and make a confession of my sin. Forgive all my sins,…” Bukhari, 1:7,19,711, 781; 6:3; 8:319, and 8:407 prior also mention Mohammed’s sins. Specific things mentioned in the Bukhari 1:234 8:794, 795 include cutting off people’s limbs, burning out their eyes, and making them die of thirst. See Bukhari 9:117; 6:198 prior, as well as Fiqh us-Sunnah v.1 p.133.

Mohammed prayed for Allah to forgive his past and future sins. Bukhari 8:407 p.269. Mohammed was forgiven of his past and future sins. Abu Dawud 3:4945 p.1380

Bukhari 9:532 (p.400) says that Jesus in heaven said Mohammed’s past and future sins were forgiven by Allah. Does a Muslim think Jesus lied here, because Allah did not need to forgive anything?

Bukhari 6:236 p.201 says that Mohammed’s sins were forgiven in Heaven, but conspicuously absent is any mention was made of forgiveness of any sin of Jesus. He never had to ask forgiveness for sin, while Mohammed did.

Mohammed trembled at the thought of his torment in the grave. Sahih Muslim 1:1214 p.290. Perhaps Mohammed’s followers should too. See also Sunan Nasa’i 2:1479 p.281-282.

Loving God and His LOVE

You, Oh Mighty One, I Praise You and give you the Glory. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind; the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. I raise my hands up and praise you Father in Jesus Name, for your love is an unconditional love. Your loving arms surround us your words also says, that you will cause those that love you to inherit substance, and you will fill their treasures. Delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Because he hath set his love upon us, therefore will he deliver us: He will set us on high, because he hath known your name. And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in they fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. Oh praise you Father, in Jesus Name. Thank you for your love, blessings, favor and all that you have done for us and will continue to do great and mighty things in our life’s. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise God, Glory, Glory, Glory…..Amen and Amen.
