  1. Paul i take great offence at your statement that this tweet is fishy for that assumes a negative connotation to fish food which is generally delicious.

    For example smoked salmon and grilled sea bass. Yum!

  2. So Paul of Tarsus misrepresented what the scriptures actually said, in order to push his own erroneous theological agenda on the Corinthian Church. Subsequently Christians today, are still pushing the same erroneous theological misunderstandings ABOUT Jesus, “according to the scriptures” (or verses) that never actually existed.

    Yeeaaahhh……

  3. That’s an oral tradition dating to decades after the events. Amazing!

    You can question the theology of the tradition (like your tweet) but you can’t question the historicity of the events

    • Good point Abdullah1423,
      if Paul of Tarsus was referring to an oral tradition why didn’t he just refer to the “sayings” or the “traditions” or something similar? Instead, it seems that he intentionally lied and deceived in order to mislead the Corinthians and anyone else who reads his letter.

      Deception is a sin….and Paul tells us how he regularly engages in sinful lies and deception 1 Cor. 9:19-23 in order to spread the gospel.

    • You guys are daft. Read an expert or two on the topic. Paul is citing an oral creed in 1 Cor 15. It has nothing to do with his own theology. You can’t blame him for everything. His fellow Jews initiated this oral creed. He received it and is passing it on…to the Corinthians…

      Isnaad? I told you guys already. You like to try to islamise the bible and play historical criticism games but you still can’t provide an isnad for anything isa of the Koran said. Until you do that, I think it’s far safer to trust an oral creed only decades after the events, composed by eyewitnesses, as opposed to a nomad Arab’s fabrications 600 years later.

      Not according to Paul. Paul emphasized that he got nothing from the true disciples of Jesus rather he got his knowledge directly from heaven. The true diciples of Jesus are ( nothing) according to Paul.

      “think it’s far safer to trust an oral creed only decades after the events, composed by eyewitnesses, as opposed to a nomad Arab’s fabrications 600 years later.”
      Well … There’s a gospel preached in the same time! That gospel was different from the message that your false prophet Paul was preaching. Your false prophet was warning people in that pagan cities of Rome to accept that message even if it’s told by the angles in heaven or even if it’s told by the super apostle.

      It’s safer to go with the words of Allah(sw). In fact, you have no choice except this path if you want to be successful in the day of judgment ?

      “[It will be said]. “Were not My verses recited to you and you used to deny them?
      They will say, “Our Lord, our wretchedness overcame us, and we were a people astray.
      Our Lord, remove us from it, and if we were to return [to evil], we would indeed be wrongdoers.
      He will say, “Remain despised therein and do not speak to Me.
      Indeed, there was a party of My servants who said, ‘Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You are the best of the merciful.
      But you took them in mockery to the point that they made you forget My remembrance, and you used to laugh at them.
      Indeed, I have rewarded them this Day for their patient endurance – that they are the attainers [of success].” QT.

    • First, this guy’s first knee-jerk unhealthy emotional reply to a scriptural quote that literally says “according to scriptures” was “That’s an oral tradition”, and he now claims to have “never said that.”… Shaking my head again.

      Secondly, so according to you, according to scholars, when Paul said “scripture”, it’s not actually according to scripture, it’s actually according to an anonymously sourced oral tradition. (Even though there’s also no oral tradition whatsoever if you ask Jew scholars)

      But here we see actually according to scripture 1 Cor 15 (note that), that according to Paul, that it’s literally according to scripture. (Even though there’s no scripture whatsoever if you ask any Jew.)

      Ladies and gentlemen, we have entered an endless recursion of baseless source references.

      Using simple logic, it’s either (1) the scholars are right and Paul is WRONG that it’s scriptural, or (2) it’s Paul who is right, and the scholars are WRONG that it’s oral. Remember, use simple logic.

      Had they lived in the same time, Paul would probably write a serious letter attempting to correct your “scholars” . (And for no reason, the letter would probably made into scripture as well.)

      Accepting any and all anonymous writers as Words of God, and accepting even more anonymous oral tradition as evidences goes against any rationality.

      So don’t just use logic, it just leads to agnosticism. (“Cant scientifically observe God, therefore probably no God”)

      And don’t just use emotion as well, it’ll just lead to believing any random baseless irrational illogical religion (“Plants are created before a sun” – Genesis 1.)

      tl;dr: True faith is reached by using everything that God has given us, rationality and emotion, IQ and EQ.

      Last time. That portion of the text is an oral creed, “what I heard from others I now pass on to you etc”

      Paul wrote the oral creed down into his epistle.

      In logic, this is called a false equivalence: you’ve got no idea. You can’t even read the text or relevant comments related to it. Yu can’t even make coherent statements or objections.

      It’s an oral creed. The oral creed says that Jesus did those things according to the scriptures, ie in fulfilment of them. That’s how the testimony of Jesus was passed on before the writing of the gospels and the epistles. Now, in the epistle to Corinth Paul is writing the oral creed down.

      In all honesty I have never come across a single verse in the Jewish Bible that states, as Paul says it does,

      that Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.

      -Hear, O Israel! Yahweh is our God, Yahweh is one [echad]!” Deuteronomy 6:4
      -“You are the God, You alone [bad], of all the kingdoms of the earth.” 2 Kings 19:15

      We follow the above verses from the Bible. Where is our fault if we followe the above clear verses from the Bible?

      You, Samaritan do not follow the above verses from the Bible but worship a man, man God etc. whom you think is sinless like a child and can save you just like the pagan Greek/Roman and many idol worshipers sacrifice their babies thinking they can save them because they are sinless.

      Keep thinking a sinless man/baby is a detergent to wash your sins, until you are thrown in hell fire because of this;

      Ezekiel 18:20
      New International Version
      The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

      Samaritan, do you think we are fools? and we do not think very well? Probably you don’t.

So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful
      Quran 7:157

      This verse alone is enough to disqualify Muhammad as a false prophet.

      And when it was said to them, “Believe in what Allah has sent down, ” they said, “We believe in what was sent down on us, ” and they disbelieve in what is beyond it, and it is the Truth sincerely (verifying) what is with them. Say, “Why then did you kill the Prophesiers (i.e. Prophets) of Allah earlier in case you are believers?”
      Quran 2:91

      How do they [i.e. the Jews] ask you to judge while the Torah is with them, having the ruling of Allah? Still, they turn away, after all that. They are no believers. Surely We have sent down the Torah, in which there was guidance and light by which the prophets, who submitted themselves to Allah, used to judge for the Jews, and (so did) the Men of Allah and the Men of knowledge, because they were ordained to protect the Book of Allah, and they stood guard over it. So, (O Jews of today,) do not fear people. Fear me, and do not take a paltry price for My verses. Those who do not judge according to what Allah has sent down are disbelievers. We prescribed for them therein: A life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear and a tooth for a tooth; and for wounds, an equal retaliation Then, if one forgives it, that will be expiation for him. Those who do not judge according to what Allah has sent down, they are the unjust. We sent Isa son of Maryam after those prophets, confirming the Torah that was (revealed) before him, and We gave him the Injil having guidance and light therein, and confirming the Torah that was (revealed) before it; a guidance and a lesson for the God-fearing. And the people of the Injil must judge according to what Allah has sent down therein. Those who do not judge according to what Allah has sent down, they are the sinners. We have sent down to you the Book with truth, confirming the Book before it, and a protector for it. So, judge between the according to what Allah has sent down, and do not follow their desires against the truth that has come to you. For each of you We have made a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made a single community of people, but (He did not), so that He may test you in what He has given to you. Strive, then to excel each other in good deeds. To Allah is the return for all of you. Then Allah shall tell you about that in which you disputed. We order you to judge between the according to what Allah has sent down. Do not follow their desires, and beware of them, lest they should turn away from some of what Allah has sent down to you. If they turn away, be assured that Allah intends to make the suffer for some of their sins. Surely, many of the people are sinners.”

      Say, “O people of the Book, you have nothing to stand on, unless you uphold the Torah and the Injil and what has been sent down to you from your Lord.” What has been sent down to you from your Lord will certainly make many of the most persistent in rebellion and disbelief. So, do not grieve over the disbelieving people.”
      Quran 5:68

      So, (O prophet,) even if you are in doubt about what We have sent down to you, ask those who read the Book (revealed) before you. Surely, truth has come to you from your Lord, so never be among those who are suspicious.

      In the so-called uncreated eternal words of your god He explicitly states that none can alter his words. You as a Muslim believe the original Torah and Injeel contained the words of this Allah. Yet here you are going against the declarations of your god and insisting that the Torah/Injeel we have today is a corrupted/fabricated text and the original has been lost.

      Now you either have to accept that the bible we have today is uncorrupted by remaining true to your Quran which affirms the inspiration, preservation and authority of the Torah & Injeel, and in no uncertain terms states that your god’s words are unchangeable, in which case that would mean your Quran is false.

      No one can change this because God has already stated his words about this matter.
      Scriptures, on the other hand, are another issue. It can be changed by your hand intentionally or by mistake unless God promises to preserve it as the situation with Qur’an.

      Qur’an affirms Torah and Injil according to Quranic definition of those books. What you have is a biblical canon for your sect which may contain some truth of those books, and it certainly contain alot of false – hood, especially the writings of Paul, so of course ” …you have nothing to stand on, unless you uphold the Torah and the Injil and what has been sent down to you from your Lord. What has been sent down to you from your Lord will certainly make many of the most persistent in rebellion and disbelief. So, do not grieve over the disbelieving people”

      The argument of the clown is stupid … really stupid.

    • LOL, it says the word has been fulfilled. In other words, whatever God decrees, it is done, and no one can change that.

      Bad sammie is actually guilty of the very thing he accuses others of doing, which is rehashing old arguments. The guy just cuts and pastes in a vain effort to appear knowledgeable.

      Hey sammie, you imbecile! Why don’t you defend your belief in a Canaanite god? Since when was God an old man like El? Since when was he a storm rider like Baal? All of these beliefs are borrowed from pagan mythology. It is proof-positive of the corruption of the pristine monotheism of the prophets.

      God’s decrees cannot be changed, and neither can His words. What He says will remain, even if heretics try to corrupt it. He will expose their corruption and replace their falsehood with truth.

      ” These versrs do not talk about scriptures.”

      Uhh actually yes they do.

      “Let me explain further for you, when God says he is not a man, then he is not, and he will not be!”
      No one can change this because God has already stated his words about this matter.”

      Yes. So a bit like when your god says none can alter his words, then no one should ever be able to alter his words. Especially when he also promises to guard his revelations from corruption. But you Muslims disagree. You don’t seem to share your god’s confidence. You believe your god was powerless to prevent man from altering his previous revelations to the point of making them all but unrecognisable.

      “Scriptures, on the other hand, are another issue. It can be changed by your hand intentionally or by mistake unless God promises to preserve it as the situation with Qur’an.”

      Uhh so when your god declared none can change his words, in a book you believe is uncreated and eternal, he meant only his words in the Quran. Yeah that makes all kinds of sense. LOL

      “Qur’an affirms Torah and Injil according to Quranic definition of those books.”

      Show me where it makes the distinction between the “Quranic definition” to the Torah/Injeel we have today.

      “What you have is a biblical canon for your sect which may contain some truth of those books, and it certainly contain alot of false – hood, especially the writings of Paul, so of course ” …you have nothing to stand on, unless you uphold the Torah and the Injil and what has been sent down to you from your Lord. What has been sent down to you from your Lord will certainly make many of the most persistent in rebellion and disbelief. So, do not grieve over the disbelieving people”

      LOL!

  9. I sometimes go to Mass, and I make it a point to myself to say the Nicene Creed with the congregation. Not as a way of expressing doctrinal unity with the parishioners and the Church, but as a means of reminding myself of standard Christian dogma and as a way of remembering a statement of the Christian faith. (I don’t, therefore, consider that to be an act of shirk due to the intention involved.)

    This is also said in the Nicene Creed:

    For us and for our salvation
    he came down from heaven;
    he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
    and was made human.
    He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered and was buried.
    The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
    He ascended to heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again with glory
    to judge the living and the dead.
    His kingdom will never end.

    I don’t knell during the consecration or genuflect in front of the cross largely to avoid shirk. But I do stand at points in the liturgy.
