Muslim’s comments on “Christianity in 107 words”

 

Muslim’s comments on “Christianity in 107 words” By: Salama AbbdelhadyProfessor of Energy Systems, South Valley UniversityA MUSLIM’S REPLY ON AN ATHEISTIC ARTICLE[i]That makes fun of Jesus, the real messenger of God.The article has the title “Christianity in 107 words” and reads:The belief that a walking dead Jewish deity who was his own father although he always existed, commits suicide by cop, although he didn't really die, in order to give himself permission not to send you to an eternal place of torture that he created for you, but instead to make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh, drink his blood, and telepathically promise him you accept him as your master, so he can cleanse you of an evil force that is present in mankind because a rib-woman and a mud-man were convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree. -- Anon._ The whole thing would make Jesus die laughing, if he wasn't already dead, and assuming he ever existed.

The Reply:
1.  As a Muslim who had strong faith in one God, in the Day of Resurrection and in the truth of the Miraculous-Holy Book of Islam “Quran” that guides me to the scientific signs of God in the universe and in us, I find my duty is to defend Jesus, the Christ, against such mentioned illusions.2. I believe in God, as the Creator and Organizer of the universe and every thing, and I believe in the truth of all God’s messengers that were mentioned in the Holy Quran as Noah, Abram, Jacob, Moses, Jesus and Mohamed. So, I believe in Jesus as a real God’s messenger according to the following verses of the “Quran” :“The Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary, was no more than a Messenger before whom many Messengers have passed away; and his mother adhered wholly to truthfulness, and they both ate food (as other mortals do). See how We make Our signs clear to them; and see where they are turning away!" (Quran 5:75)."Verily, the likeness of Jesus in God's Sight is the likeness of Adam. He (God) created him from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!'-and he was" (Quran 3:59)."Such was Jesus, the son of Mary; it is a statement of truth, about which they vainly dispute. It is not befitting to the majesty of God, that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be' and it is" (Quran 19:34-35). 3. According to the canonical Gospels; Jesus had the same call as Moses and Mohummad; to worship One God who is the Creator of every thing and the Organizer of everything. The same message was revealed to all his Humans messengers. So, we can read in the Gospels:a.      According to the first of commandment in Mark Gospel and in all Gospels: “The first of commandment is: Behold Israel, God is our Lord is One God.” (Mark: 12: 9)b.      Similar statement of Jesus: in Mark: When he saw that Jesus answered them well, he asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 12:29 Jesus answered, “The most important is: ‘Listen, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 12:30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 12:31 The second is: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  4.         Jesus had never told in any Gospel he had to be crucified or to commit suicide because a rib-woman and a mud-man were convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree. Such statements belong to what is called “Pauline Christianity” which belongs to a man called Paul who hated Jesus during Jesus life and after his lift. He confessed in his acts that he was doing things against Jesus message: Acts 26:9; I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. 5.                  According to Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_Christianity; Paul introduced many illogical dogmas in Jesus Christianity. Such different Christianity made use of the administrative skills which Rome had honed. Its system of organization with a single bishop for each town was, on this view, the means by which it obtained its hegemony through unfair procedures.6.                  According to the last found Gospel “Judas Gospel”, Judas was the killed man. We can find the key passage of such Gospel; the Jesus' statement to Judas: ''you will exceed all of them, for you will sacrifice the man that clothes me." This statement means that Judas will be the victim not Jesus and that Judas will be dressed by his shape of Jesus because he traded him. Such statement coincides with the Quran’s statement that assures that Jesus was never killed or crucified but some one other replaced him after being shaped with the same color and face like him as can seen in the following Quranic Verse: "“They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did “God lifted him up to His presence. God is Almighty, All-Wise” (Quran 4:156-157). However; two Gospels only described the scene of Jesus Crucifixion and record his loud cry as follows: Eloi, Eloi, Lema sabachtani, (according to English Copies of the Bible). As noted, the man, who cried, used a different slang than that of Jesus. It is near to the Arabic/Hebrew slang that was used by the residents of southern areas of Palestine in these times. Eloi means my God, as stated. Lema means also Why as translated in Gospels. But sabachtanic, according to English copy, does not mean forsaken me, but it means pigmented me. Sabcha (or sabgcha) means a pigment. So, there is a doubt concerning the man on the Cross because he used different language than Jesus, he is blaming God to pigment him (by another shape). Finally, he is crying loudly in a completely different manner than that of Jesus to declare that he is another pigmented man. 7.                  Paul’s corruptions, in his introduced Christianity, include many of the mentioned aspects in such “107 words”. Such corruptions are found in his acts and messages. In the canonical Gospels, we cannot read any of these mentioned madness in the claimed words as:a.                       An evil force is present in mankind.b.      Jesus committed suicide by cop in order to give himself permission not to send you to an eternal place of torture that he created for you.c.       Jesus makes you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and drink his blood.d.Jesus telepathically promises you if you accept him as your master, so he can cleanse you. 8.      Jesus had never told he was his father or he was one of three. Such corruptions were introduced also by another great corruptor who destroyed all the true believers of Jesus and his real followers in his time and kept Paul’s corruptions and Paul’s followers. This was “Constantine”, the emperor of paganism. The British historian Paul Johnson summarizes how Constantine's approach of merging religious practices produced a corrupted Christianity that meshed paganism with biblical elements. When we consider the vast differences between the mainstream Christianity of today and the original Christianity of Jesus Christ and the apostles, we can trace much of that change to Constantine and the religious system he put into power.  9.      According to most scholars, the intelligent Christians were Arian, as Newton. Those intelligent Christians rejected the belief that son is his father, they were not holding to Trinitarianism. In Newton's eyes, worshipping Christ as God was idolatry. Such Aryanism was based on the original Jesus Christianity. You may read more about Newton in this site:

 10.     Jesus told every one will be counted for his deeds and words as you may read in Matthew: 12:36 I tell you that on the Day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak. 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”  & 16:27  For the Son of Man is going to come in his God’s glory with his angels, and then he each person will be rewarded according to what he has done.  11.  In the start of creation, as revealed in Quran, there is not found a talking snake. Who likes to know the true story as truly described may read my article of the title: The Start of Universe[ii]. 12.  Jesus existed according to the Quran and according to documents that were studied by a group of academic theologians who studied Christian writings from the 1st to 3rd century CE, from a religiously liberal perspective. They have interesting conclusions in the following site: http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_jsem.htm. However; I defended Jesus against some of their conclusions in the following article: http://www.quran-m.com/firas/en1/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=262:islamic-comments-on-the&catid=50:embracing-islam&Itemid=10413.    Actually; there will be an eternal place of torture that God created for those who make Joke of Jesus and the disbelievers in God’s Existence, who spoil in the earth and who cannot see God’s signs in every thing: According to Quran: 002.006 As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe. 002.007 God hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they will face.
