      DO you believe that mohammed wrote a winged beast up to the moon and split it in half? Was mohammed the first astronaut?

    • If it was not flat what was the point of the devil taking Jesus up a very high mountain to show him all the kingdoms of earth? You cannot see them. See the pic taken from the moon.

      The least we can do as Muslims is to help educate Islamophobes such as yourself.

      Wrote = Past tense of the word Write,

      Do you believe that 1st century jews never went up to high places and noticed that you couldn’t see even one entire kingdom on earth? You are being obtuse.

      Now, did mohammed split the moon of didn’t he?

  3. The above passage proves that Jesus is not God,

    This is because the Devil only tempted Jesus because he thought that there was a chance (even if only slight) that he could corrupt someone whom he knew to be a mortal human, with all the flaws and weaknesses that entails.

    The Devil would have known that he had no chance of tempting God himself, and if Jesus was indeed God, the Devil would not even have tried to tempt him.

    Jesus even says that he takes nourishment from the message and word of God, and that he will not test his God, “Again it is written, do not put your Lord to the test.”

    Jesus is also saying that he will not worship the Devil, for he will only worship God alone, the ONE that created, sent, and empowered him, saying it is written, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.”

    The passage makes it very clear that Jesus is talking about the God that he worships, and not referring to himself as God.

      Strangely, the Devil refers to jesus as the son of god – a divine appellation.

      “Jesus is also saying that he will not worship the Devil, for he will only worship God alone, the ONE that created, sent, and empowered him, saying it is written, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.””

      LOL!!

      Jesus is telling satan to worship him – the Lord. You guys got nothing.

    • Yes, indeed excellent points…it makes no logical sense to try to tempt God…God is untemptable…since Jesus was target for temptation, Jesus is not God…this can be transformed into a syllogism as WL Craig often does in his proofs for God.

      Good job Ibn Issam. Mashallah.

  4. For once Paul you raise an interesting subject. When satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world, was it just the kingdoms of that day? Ive heard it speculated that he showed him all the kingdoms throughout history.

    This is obviously a vision.

    • Achillies53,
      You are reading into the text.

      It does not say anywhere that it was a vision rather than the literal interpretation that the Devil took Jesus up high mountain and showed him ALL the Kingdoms of the day, which is clearly impossible.

    • It would be impossible for a human to do that. But satan is a powerful spiritial entity. His powers could extend to showing Jesus al the kingdoms of the world present and future.

    • No idea. Maybe a good stage to show his vision? When the creator of heaven and earth meets the devil things are obviously going to go beyond the realms of human understanding.

    • Achillies,
      So Christianity gives Satan powers on par with God?

      In Islamic belief, Satan has no powers except to tempt and mislead mankind.

      Why would Satan have Prophet Muhammad recite the following:
      “…and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.” (2:168)

      That sinks your whole ridiculous theory on Satanic inspiration of Prophet Muhammad (sws) the Messenger of God.

      At least your honest, “no idea.”

      If Satan had the power to present a vision he could have done it anywhere. And why does he need a “Stage to show his vision?”.

      As Paul asked, “why go up the mountain?”

    • As has been pointed out, the real issue here is Jesus saying you will worship no-one but the Lord your God. And Jesus accepted worship from the disciples a priori he is God.

      And muslims want to knitpick over the details of the temptation of Christ.

      Lol what?

      Satan tells jesus to fall down because God will save him by sending the angels, jesus tells him that he won’t because he won’t test God. Then satan tells jesus to worship him, jesus refuses because only the God is to be worshipped and served.

      How on earth are you using that passage to claim Jesus is God?

    • This particular phrase “four corners of the world” could be metaphorical, although other biblical passages do indicate belief in a flat earth; e.g: “For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them.” (1 Samuel 2:8).

  8. Hang on a second…

    How on earth (Pun Intended) did God not know what was or in his Kingdom???

    So let’s get this straight…

    -Did God not know he had a Kingdom/domain?
    -Did God not already own this Kingdom?
    -God was overpowered by the devil and taken up to a mountain that does not exist that would have to reach up to space in order to see the kingdom he was not aware of and already owned and that is only if the earth was flat???
    -God was tempted by Satan himself?

    christians make a mock God.

    • Paul,

      How can you offer something to someone who already owns that something???

      Paul, If I came to you and took your car keys and said: “Paul if you follow me and do as I say I will give you your car”.

      And if you fell for it, that would make you a massive dumb moron right?

      What chrisitans are saying is that the almighty is even dumber than his creation because he owns everything and has the supreme knowledge yet he got outsmarted by it. christianity wants you to denigrate God to below his creation.

      Here is what I do not worship:

      – A “god” that dies
      – A “god” that lies
      – A “god” that is overpowered and commanded by satan
      – A “god” that is tempted by satan
      – A “god” that instructs his followers to commit infanticide, genocide and rape and when his followers are exhausted from all this rape, plundering and murder and come back to him and get rebuked and sent back to “finish the job”

      I could write a thousand more lunatic claims by the bible.

      THAT IS NOT GOD YOU IMBECILES!!!
