In a tweet today Dr Michael Bird innocently lets slip a truth about Christian worship I have often discussed in conversations with Christians, namely that they worship a man, a created being. Christians usually (and illogically) deny they do this but Michael boldly admits to this practice.
Now the Bible is dead set against worshiping a creature be it man, beast or stone. Numerous passages in the Jewish Bible condemn this evil practice. But it appears to make no difference to Michael.
Islam is the last call to mankind to worship God alone.

Worship god by idolizing the flawed human being, mohammed?
No. And define “idolizing.”
First of all, christians have to stop worshipping a human being as this christian affirmed.
Second, it’s very interesting that white christians worship a Middle Eastern man whom they wouldn’t sit by in a plane.
That man was from a middle eastern culture that white christians hate the most.

My Christian friends will say God took the form of Jesus, God emptied Himself and took the place of a servant, may God forbid, God entered into a form-that is in space and time etc. but God trancends time and space. That contradicts God nature.
Let’s say God entered into a form. The form is still a form but not God, so Jesus is not God.
Watch and ponder.
Christians often refer to this famous verse at John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son,”
Now, Let us look some contradictory Bible verses:
• Exodus 4:22 “Thus saith Jehovah, Israel is my son, even my firstborn.” Here we see in this verse that Israel is not only God’s so called “Son”, but also his first born !!. Does this mean that Jehovah is Israel? Does it mean that we must worship Israel as Jehovah or Allah? Of course not !!!
• Jeremiah 31:9 “I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.” Ephraim in this verse means Israel. This verse is similar to Exodus 4:22.
• Psalm 2:7 “….Jehovah had said onto me (David), thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” Here in this verse we see that God not only called David his “Son”, but also had made him his begotten Son!!!.
According to the Law of the Torah as written in Deuteronomy, the firstborn son has greater rights than the other sons, which means that Jacob (AKA “Israel”), and/or Ephraim who are both referred to as “firstborn” have greater rights and status than Jesus. More importantly, how can Jesus be the only begotten son, when David was begotten as well as being born BEFORE Jesus?
Conclusion: being referred to as “son of God” does not mean that one is actually divine in essence nor does it mean that one is God himself.
