  1. Islamic prayer rituals derive from paganism – the quran gives no instructions whatsoever on how to pray or do ablution. That comes from the pagansim of 7th century arabia and exposes mohammed as a charlatan.

    • LOL, of course the pagan Trey has no evidence brother Paul. His lying spirit told him so he believes it. Evidence is not needed, only a non-sequitur.

      The irony is that Trey’s religion is full of myths borrowed from paganism. One of the clearest examples is the description of God as an old man, as described in Daniel 7:

      “As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool.”

      In his “vision”, Daniel saw the “Ancient of Days” and provided a vivid description of this being (who was obviously “God”), including clothing that “was white as snow”, and hair that “was white as wool”. But as historians have recognized, this description of a white-haired God seems to be influenced by pagan mythology. According to Hammer:

      “[t]he imagery probably comes from Canaanite mythology, in which El was regarded as an aged deity with grey hair.”[168]

      Moreover, the imagery of a “son of man” approaching the “Ancient of Days” shares similarities with Canaanite myth. According to Hammer:

      “[i]n Ugaritic texts Baal, the younger god, is described as the one who slew the dragon Itu and so gained victory over the sea, thus establishing his kingship. (In verses 13-14 the second figure is seen as the recipient of authority at the hand of the ‘ancient in years’ and this may reflect the ancient mythology preserved in the enthronement festival of New Year rites.”[169]

      http://quranandbible.blogspot.com/2016/09/the-book-of-daniel.html

      More examples of borrowed pagan myths can be seen in the legends regarding Leviathan, the sea-serpent.

      “There are striking parallels between the Ugarit text and certain biblical verses. In the Book of Isaiah, for instance, the prophet says: “In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea” (Isaiah 27:1). That is nearly verbatim to what an anonymous Canaanite bard has to say about Baal: “When you killed Litan, the fleeing serpent, annihilated the twisty serpent, the potentate with seven heads.” (http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/features/.premium-1.678408)

      Yet another example of borrowing can be seen in the Genesis story of the serpent. This myth seems to be borrowed from the Epic of Gilgamesh:

      “….in the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh, man is cheated of immortality by a snake who eats a plant. If Gilgamesh had eaten it, would have made him immortal” (http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/features/.premium-1.678408)

      Even the early church fathers recognized the similarities between Christianity and pagan cults like Mithraism and to explain these similarities, they concocted the absurd excuse that Satan had preempted Christianity by creating the pagan religions in order to deceive people into believing that Christianity had been borrowed from paganism:

      “For the apostles, in the memoirs composed by them, which are called Gospels, have thus delivered unto us what was enjoined upon them; that Jesus took bread, and when He had given thanks, said, “This do ye in remembrance of Me, this is My body;” and that, after the same manner, having taken the cup and given thanks, He said, “This is My blood;” and gave it to them alone. Which the wicked devils have imitated in the mysteries of Mithras, commanding the same thing to be done. For, that bread and a cup of water are placed with certain incantations in the mystic rites of one who is being initiated, you either know or can learn.” (First Apology, Chapter 66).

      So, Trey should spend more time worrying about the clear examples of paganism in his religion rather than wasting time with unproven polemics against Islam.

Did you know Muhammad taught one of his followers to pray to him along with Allah in order to get his invocation answered? Did you know that the Quran’s story of Allah commanding the angels to worship Adam, with Allah condemning Satan to hell for refusing to do so, is nothing more than a fable, a fairy tale, which Muhammad adopted since he thought it was actual history?

      Comment on another thread that has to do with reaction formation.

      Sam Shamoun posted an article link here criticizing Allah(swt) for asking the angles and Satan to bow down to Adam as a respect to Adams. Even though we have explained to him(Sam Shamoun) that, it is not to worship Adam as God but is just to show respect to him.

      As your article clearly reveals, Sam Shamoun suffers from reaction formation and therefore tries to equate the bowing down to Adam(AS) as “worshiping” Adam, a creature like how we worship Allah, forgetting that Allah did not ask anyone to pray to Adams 5 times a day. Allah did not ask anyone to continue bowing down to Adam at all times like how we do to Allah.

      Sam forgets that, in some cultures today people still bow down to elderly as a sign of respect but not worshiping them and some Muslims do that and there is no problem with that. It is not worshiping anyone and it is not worshiping as God. In English courts and other courts, the judges are addressed your worship, your lordship, my honor etc. by Christians. Are the Christians worshiping the judges?

      I did not respond to Sam Shamoun on that thread because I responded him several times on the issue but the reaction formation prompted me to cite this as an example that fits him(Sam Shamoun).

      There are so many verses in the Bible where God of the Bible asks humans to do things that they will do to Him(God) to humans and we can cite them. Does that means the God of the Bible allows humans to worship creations? Paul Williams has thrown that challenge to you and Ken Temple and non of you answered him.

      Ken, enough of your Biblical Canons that has no Epistle of Banabas, the gospel of Shepherd Hermas etc. in it and with so many books difference from denominations of Christians. You cannot use such Canons as criteria for Muslims.

      The gospels of Thomas, Judas, Mary etc. are considered canons by other Christians. Christianity is diverse just immediately after Jesus’s departure, so you cannot force yours on us as the true one. Ebionites, Arians etc. who do not believe Jesus is God has to be killed by Constantine and others.

      Also, the names of the Egyptian magicians of Pharoah that opposed Moses in 2 Tim. 3:8 – not a problem.

      These are traditions that are early; whereas the Qur’an gets material from non-inspired books that come after the period of revelation is already finished.

      Revelation finished wit the death of the last apostle, John, around 100 AD. Either Jude (verse 3 – “the faith that was once for all time delivered to the saints”) or Revelation ( 96 AD) was the last book written, and Rev. 22:18 says “don’t add any more words to this book” – means the Book of Rev., but the principle is true if it is the last book or one of the last.

      The truth of the NT stands out much better as God-breathed and miraculous – Virgin Birth, Jesus’ miracles, atonement for sin, sufferings of Christ, resurrection, empty tomb, appearances, evidences of the early church and growth and doctrinal agreement, etc. and the attitudes of Job, Joseph, Jesus, and Paul in face of suffering and God’s sovereignty; and teachings about repentance, faith and works and who one is saved; the love of God and power of the Holy Spirit and power of the gospel to change lives – obviously the NT is God-breathed and powerful, but Qur’an is just a human book with monotheism, judgement day, claim of revelation, God speaks through prophets and inspires books, angels, heaven and hell, Jesus was Al Masih, virgin born, Word from God, a spirit from God (points to same nature/ substance/ essence جوهر، ذات ) but those truths are already in the previous Scriptures.

      If it happened and some stories are found in your biblical canon or out of your biblical canon, that doesn’t affect on the originality of Quran for Quran came from Allah(sw). Also, Quran doesn’t present the stories as you find them in those Gnostic works which are not available for christians at that time let alone to be available for the prophet pbuh who didn’t read Arabic in the first place.

He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and to Him is the [final] destination.

    • Ken Temple

      why? because Christians NEVER spoke that way. They never said “God is the Messiah”. They said “The Messiah is God (by nature)”. Big difference

      I say;
      Where is the difference? What is the difference

      They never said God is the Messiah(Jesus)-Ken Temple of bloggingtheology.

      Then you are a Muslim

      why? You never believed God is the Messiah(Jesus). Muslims also NEVER spoke that way i.e. God is the Messiah(Jesus).

      If Jesus is the Messiah and the Messiah is not God according to Ken Temple. I do not know why Ken Temple must remain a Christian.

      Hindus will insist their scripture is from God just like you insist your scripture is from God, so what you said against them is not a proof but your wishful thinking. We need proof and not believe.

      Thanks.

    • Intellect,
      No; you still don’t understand. We don’t say “God is the Messiah”. But we do say “The Messiah is God”. The first one sounds like one is saying the Father is the Messiah and that is wrong. The second one means “the Messiah is God by nature – same substance as the Father, but not the Father – homo – ousias. (same substance); but different in person.

    • Lol oh Kenny .. a Modalist Christian will view you and your trinitarian beliefs as heretical… you are a heretic in many Christians eyes Kenny

      As mentioned some Christians did/ do believe that God is the Messiah and/or even implied Jesus is the entire Godhead, which is known to be an early chiristian belief known as Modalism and which the Quran acknowledges and refutes accordingly… you as a trinitarian christian heretic may not believe it, doesn’t mean the Quran is incorrect it just means your ignorant of other christian heretical teaching that the quran refutes? Including trinitarian myth like other Christians have refuted also 🙂

    • Sabellianism (false teachers Sabellius, Noetus, and Praxeas – (Tertullian wrote a whole book “Against Praxaes”) was never considered Christian and it was condemned very early, even before Nicea in 325 AD. (in the 200s)

      Modalism has been mainly associated with Sabellius, who taught a form of it in Rome in the 3rd century. This had come to him via the teachings of Noetus and Praxeas. Noetus was excommunicated from the Church after being examined by council, and Praxeas is said to have recanted his modalistic views in writing, teaching again his former faith. Sabellius likewise was excommunicated by council in Alexandria,

    • Nope; they are not Christians. Anyone who denies the Trinity or Deity of Christ is not a Christian – see John 8:24

    • What Kenny!?.. Scripture is clear? You’re seeing things that are not there Ken… Nowhere in those verses you reference articulate the trinity ‘oneness’ where the notion that God is comprised of 3 distinct persons that forms one being!!? … Jesus certainty did not teach such a dubious idea… according to Jesus’s teachings and understanding of biblical monotheism you are a heretic Ken… that is very clear! 🙂
