Is Jesus Christ a fraud?
In Answer to the next Issue, from Openyourmind786:
"Blessed is He Who sent down the Criterion to His Servant, that it may be an admonition to all creatures; He to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: no son has He begotten, nor has He a partner in His dominion: it is He Who created all things, and ordered them in due proportions. Yet have they taken, Besides Him, gods that can create nothing but are themselves created;that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control Death nor Life nor Resurrection". (Qur'an 25:1).
Yes. What you quote here is indeed from the Qur'an, the beginning of Sura 25, 'AL FURKAN.'
Continuing from where you left off, the Qur'an goes on to say: "And the infidels say, 'This Koran is a mere fraud of his own devising, and others have helped him with it, who had come hither by outrage and lie.' "
Well, your prophet Muhammad got that right!
So, this discussion comes back around as to who is the deceiver, --Muhammad, or Jesus Christ? You believe that the liar and deceiver was Jesus Christ, and that Christians and Jews are infidels, "pagans that shall burn forever in the fire of Hell; the vilest of all creatures." (Qur'an, The Proof 98:6-7). This is difficult to believe, considering the universal good and love, for all people, that Jesus taught and exemplified. Also, take a good look at the fruit of each faith. Look at the country that was founded on Christian principles, and then look at the nations that are not. Who has true God (or Allah) really favored? Has God actually blessed so, 'the vilest of all creatures, that shall burn forever in the fire of Hell' ?
Why do Muslims come to this country to live, while all the time kneeling down and worshipping the god of Muhammad, --praying in allegiance to what their holy prophet Muhammad wrote down in the Qur'an, taken to be the exact, word for word, statements of Allah? What are people in this country to think, when we read such things in the Qur'an as: "Make war on them (Christians and Jews) until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme." (Qur'an, The Spoils 8:37-41). Or "We changed them (men who were wrongdoers) into detested apes. ...transforming them into apes and swine." (The Heights 7:164-166.) Or "When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters (Christians and Jews) wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them." (Repentance 9:4-7).
These are just some examples, of how one can go on and on, quoting the Qur'an, in comparison to Christianity; that is, the Bible New Testament; and in showing the evidences of the true nature of God as described in the Bible, throughout history; and in offering up scientific and prophetic examples, to show that the Bible is of the one true God, and not the Qur'an. However, I look forward to a reply, or replies, and continuing this discussion, with Openyourmind786, or any person who might have something constructive to contribute, from whatever faith. At any rate I'll be back for the next 'Issue', as there are still more issues to answer from Openyourmind786.. God bless... I do enjoy this. 8< )
"Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." (Romans 10:17).
