  1. Imagine were it not for all the lies, fear, and propaganda, how many Christians would finally realize that their religion has been corrupted, and that monotheism is the truth, and would embrace Islam?

    • When you become a sunni muslim you will discover that true monotheism is believing in the Quran alone and that hadiths(good and bad) are just satanic inspired lies writen by men.

      But I guess to some, throwing out the baby with the bathwater passes for a reasonable principle in implementing the Qur’ān. And why single out Sunnīs? Shī`ahs and Ibādīs look to hadīths to derive the Sunnah as well.

      Those 2nd century AH books are actually based on material collected during the Prophet’s time and after his death, such as the Sahifah of Hammam ibn Munabbih who was a pupil of Abu Hurayrah (which is published[1]), and you find that many hadiths (98 IIRC) in it are all found in al-Bukhari and Muslim’s Sahih collection, and all of them are also found in Imam Ahmad’s Musnad, meaning they’ve been merged into them. So this idea that hadiths were written down only “200 years” after the Prophet’s death is contrary to all available evidence.

When a prophet makes a claim then that is true by divine revelation but when someone else says that a prophet said something then you need historical proof of that which YOU don’t have. Prophet Muhammad (saw) getting his revelation through the angel Gabriel was a statement by the Prophet and how do we know this? Because of authentic hadith. So we know he said this and because he is a prophet of God that claim is true. Now let’s apply this to your potato book. Jesus allegedly said the things you demented friend paulus quoted.

      3 days – Friday, Saturday, Sunday
      3 nights – Friday night, Saturday night…oops! No third night!

      And here is the quote from Geza Vermes, as quoted in one of my articles:

      …Jesus was supposed to have resurrected after three days and three nights, as mentioned in the summary. Before we analyze this prophecy, it needs to be made clear that the time period of “three days and three nights” did not necessarily have to denote three 24-hour periods. Biblical scholar Geza Vermes states that according to “Jewish time reckoning”:

      “…part of a day or night was accepted as a full day or night (yShab 12a; bPes4a)”(The Authentic Gospel of Jesus (London: Penguin Books, 2003), p. 183.).

      However, even with this concession, it is plainly obvious that there is absolutely no way for the prophecy to have been fulfilled if Jesus died on Friday and resurrected on Sunday. As Vermes observes:

      “This would allow us to count three days from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning, but no stretch of the imagination could fit three nights into that period” (Ibid.)

    • Oh madman, you idiot. There are two aspects to the law, the part that prohibits something, and then the part that prescribes the punishment for breaking that law. The Jews were prohibited from working on the Sabbath. If anyone broke that law, they would be punished. But the law prohibiting working was in itself a punishment due to its difficulty. That is why it was abrogated and no longer required for Muslims. Muslims can go about their daily routine after they make their Friday prayers. The strict laws of the Jews were no longer applicable.

      As I already pointed out to your fellow clown Ignoramus, the Quran states that the Sabbath law itself was given because the Jews differed about it. That was their punishment.

      Here is another example of a law that was meant to punish the Jews for their sins:

      “For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat of the ox and the sheep, except what adheres to their backs or their entrails, or is mixed up with a bone: this in recompense for their wilful disobedience: for We are true (in Our ordinances)” (6:146).

      The Quran also states that even Jesus (pbuh) abrogated some laws as per God’s commands:

      ““‘(I have come to you), to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (Before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear Allah, and obey me. “‘It is Allah Who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a Way that is straight’”” (3:50-51).

  11. There was no need for additional laws to punish the Jews because they were already built in to the law in the form of the curses listed in Deuteronomy.

    To differ on the details of Sabbath observance is not necessarily a sin. Both sides could have been within the bounds of the law even though they differed on some details.

    The idea that the Sabbath was given as a punishment or curse is blasphemous as it was patterned after God’s example of resting after his creative activity. Laws which are meant to sanctify the people cannot be designated as punishments, such as clean and unclean laws for example.

    Also such a claim makes God unjust by perpetually punishing different people for the sins of another group of people committed in the past.

    Obviously the whole thing is a heinous scheme with the purpose of perpetually defaming the Jews to whip up hatred against them for political purposes.

Consider the fact that many of your god’s characteristics are borrowed from Canaanite mythology, it is not surprising why the Bible says that your god “rested”. Here is a good commentary for you. Jonathan Burnside states in his book “God, Justice, and Society: Aspects of Law and Legality in the Bible”:

      “This rest is presented as the climax of the story of universal creation (Genesis 2:2-3) where God is shown to triumph over the forces of chaos. “Victory in battle” followed by “rest” is a common motif in ancient Near Eastern (ANE) stories. Canaanite mythology describes the defeat of the sea god Yamm by the storm god Baal, who thereupon constructs a “temple” in which to rest. As a result, the commandments to keep Shabbat (Sabbath) invite and permit Israel to imitate God’s activity in creation” (p. 71).

      Idiot, unless people had an unending supply of firewood (which they didn’t as we will see), fires would go out. And we find that even going out and getting more wood was not allowed. So, if your fire happened to go out, and you didn’t have more firewood, you could not go and get more or start a new fire. Numbers 15 shows that it was a crime to gather wood on the Sabbath.

      The Biblical story proves itself to be completely nonsensical and contradictory. How could the Israelites have degenerated into idol worship after having just witnessed God’s power? How could Aaron (pbuh) so easily give in to the mob?! This is how it basically went:

      Israelites: We’re tired of waiting for Moses. He has been gone too long. Aaron, why don’t you make us an idol of a calf to worship?

      Aaron: …Okay, what the hell. Bring me the materials and I will do it.

      It seems pretty silly, doesn’t it? It makes far more sense that the law was given after the Israelites worshiped the golden calf, which is why the Quran states that the episode of the golden calf occurred before Moses (pbuh) took 70 Israelites with him to the mountain.

      So, unfortunately for you, your Bible doesn’t give us any reliable answers. Given the strict rules of the Sabbath, which Jesus (pbuh) obviously tried to relax, it seems pretty obvious that the Sabbath laws were meant to be a punishment for the Israelites’ rebelliousness and lack of faith.

    But Moses broke the tablets in response to this sin. This was after he went back down with the elders and returned alone to the summit. So the writer of the Quran should have done his homework better.

    What is the Hajj a punishment for then according to your logic? Making People go all day without water for one month?

      Resting on the Sabbath from sunset to sunset, and not allowing any work to be done (even to light a fire) is a difficult rule to follow. So severe was the sin of breaking the Sabbath, that it was punished with death. With the coming of Islam, this rule was relaxed. You must still perform Friday prayers in a masjid, but once you are done, you can go about your daily business. Thank God for Islam!

  28. Ceasing from work is not difficult for anyone.

    It was also easy to avoid having to light a fire on the sabbath.

    On the other hand it was not unlawful to throw some wood on an already burning fire.

    So nobody had to fear the cold in winter.

    Jesus and the disciples were walking on the sabbath in the service of the kingdom so it wouldn’t be against the law to pluck the corn on the way or take take water from a well. They sacralized their labour.

    The priests also had to work on the sabbath to offer the daily sacrifices. Were they breaking the sabbath?

    If some work was required to keep the day holy, and the sustenance of human life is necessary to this end, then this was not unlawful.

    As Jesus said, the sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath.

    • LOL, more of madman’s own opinions and nothing from scripture to support it! Is this the best you could do in the several days you disappeared, desperately seeking an answer?

      Obviously, it was difficult for some people, which is why it was punishable by death. Clearly, people did find it difficult, hence why the man in Numbers was picking up firewood. Willful disobedience of God’s laws brought more difficult laws as a punishment.

      The law was specific, stupid. There were certain things you could or could not do. Temple sacrifices were not included in the prohibition.

      The irony of this is that when the Christians came along, all of a sudden, the “holiness” of the Sabbath no longer mattered. Christians never kept the Sabbath like the Jews did. It seems the Sabbath also cause “enmity” between Jews and Gentiles!

      By the way madman, I forgot to ask you again about menstruation. I asked you once before a while ago and you ran away. Since you obviously believe that most of the Mosaic law still applies to Christians, what about the law of menstruation? Are Christian husbands prohibited from having sexual intercourse with their wives? And must the wives be separated for 7 days as the Tanakh states?

      Your answers showcase the central hypocrisy of Christianity. You pick and choose based on whim what laws to follow and what laws to ignore. Something that is “unclean” doesn’t suddenly become “clean”. In any case, the NT does not say that the laws concerning menstruation no longer apply. It only says that the DIETARY laws no longer apply. But even then, BLOOD was still forbidden!

    Faiz “Second, why would Christians be allowed to defile themselves with menstrual blood while Jews were not? What kind of sick religion do you follow?”

    The things that made the Jews unclean were symbolic of sin to show that man had to purify himself to approach a holy God and he had to separate himself from sin to live a holy life. You are blinded by your literalism which comes from the pagan superstition that physical contact defiles because of the nature of the thing itself, with which one comes into contact with, and not the thing that it symbolizes.

    ““As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality” (Acts 21:25).”

    This is just the law of not causing the weaker brother, in this case the Jews, to be offended which was only temporarily of necessity because of the temple rites to which the Gentiles were not subject.

    The Jews did not know what liberty they had until the NT was completed. God allowed a period of transition under which the Jews lived under both covenants. Gentile Christians had to be sensitive to the Jews living under this tension between the old and the new. Progressive revelation rears its ugly head once again I fear.

They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28 Then the nations will know that I the Lord make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.” (Ezekiel 37)

      Deuteronomy also clearly says that whatever was revealed to the Israelites was supposed to last forever:

      “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” (Deut. 29:29)

    The Gentiles were not under the Mosaic covenant so they were not obliged to keep the laws given at Sinai. The New Testament is the binding revelation from God to the people of God under the new covenant and takes precedence over the OT. The laws of the Mosaic Covenant were adopted and continued under the New Covenant to the extent that the NT regulates this adoption under it’s direction.The arrangement with the Jewish believers was an ad hoc arrangement between the Gentiles and Jews who still had not completely come in to their liberty. They were still living in bondage to the law because of their Jewish identity. The temple was actually dispensed with by God but as long as it was standing the Jews as a whole could not renounce it. This was too much pressure on the Jewish Christians in Jerusalem. Therefore this arrangement could not be binding for ever on the Gentiles. Only until the Jews made a full transition in to the church.

    If the text “eating meat offered to idols” means joining in that worship then of course that would be idolatry. If it just means buying that meat in the marketplace then it would be ok to eat in that context. I don’t believe that Jezebel is a real person as that obviously could not be possible being an historical person from the OT. Again there is symbolism at work.

    This is the law of the weaker brother which is not mandatory but done so as not to offend. Of course fornication was always forbidden as both Jesus and Paul commanded:

    Paul writes in 1 Thess 4:

    3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: 4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; 5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

    Muslims try and picture Christians as antinomian and lawless. There is no basis for this from the NT. Rather the jihadi becomes antimonian in relation to the infidel. Don’t you agree? This is a clever ruse.

    The clean and unclean in Ezekiel’s vision of the temple are symbolic of believers and unbelievers in the time of the new covenant and in the final state.

    Peter’s vision confirms that the laws of clean and unclean no longer apply.

    The early christians did keep a form of the sabbath. They rested from their work and assembled together to worship and have fellowship with each other and with God. This is the ideal form of the Sabbath which existed before the law of Moses.

      Yaaaaawn, getting bored again from your BS. Your nonsense was apparently lost on the author of Ezekiel! He gave minute details about the temple, its rites and festivals and the following of the law TO THE LETTER. Why don’t you explain the “symbolism” of the following verse loser?

      “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: No foreigner uncircumcised in heart and flesh is to enter my sanctuary, not even the foreigners who live among the Israelites.” (Ezekiel 44:9)

      LOL, what is this symbolizing? Were the Gentiles not allowed in your pathetic church???

      “Peter’s vision confirms that the laws of clean and unclean no longer apply.”

      ROFTL!! This was again lost on the author of Revelation! And James didn’t seem to be aware of this so-called “vision”!

      You do realize, you lying demon, that your own Bible requires two witnesses for confirmation? Thus, Peter’s alleged “vision” violates your own Bible! He was the only one who had the vision, and no one else! LOL!

      “But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’” (Matthew 18:16)

      Hahahaha, oh you stupid, stupid man! You keep proving with your own words that you Christians are nothing but hypocrites! Where did God say to keep “a form of the sabbath”? The Tanakh is very clear on the “form”. You were to do no work, not even cooking. Christians were very quick to abandon this law. Tertullian felt that it was a “temporary” law.

      You still haven’t told me your sabbath routine. Why do you keep running, madman?

      LOL, you seriously are an idiot. Why don’t you do some better research?

      The “two-witnesses” rule applies to all matters, not just “conflicts” or “moral disputes”. This is from your Bible:

      “It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

      18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me” (John:8:17-18).

      Here, Jesus is evoking the two-witnesses rule to establish his own trustworthiness. There is nothing here about “conflicts” or “moral disputes”. It is simply a matter of establishing whether a person is telling the truth or not. This concept is also evoked in Revelation 11:3.

      Thus, Peter’s so-called “vision”, for which the ONLY source is a third-party which was not present when the vision occurred (namely Luke). You still have yet to provide an explanation for why this “vision” is supposed to change thousands of years of strict dietary laws. Notice that Peter even says that he has never eaten anything unclean. That means that when Jesus (pbuh) was still present, the disciples still followed the dietary laws! He never changed the law himself! What was he waiting for?

      “There is no level to which you won’t stoop in your desperation to discredit the plain truths revealed in the bible.

      Oh brother! ROFTL!!!

      So you quote Acts 11 in which Peter summarized his “visions”? What’s your point, stupid? There is no level to which you won’t stoop in your desperation to avoid the pain contradictions in your confused Bible.

      Let’s see more contradictions, shall we? I will use your precious KJV:

      Acts 10 – “Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate,

      18 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.

      19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.”

      Acts 11 – “10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

      11 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me.

      12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man’s house.”

      So, notice how Acts 10 says that the men stayed at the gate, whereas in Acts 11, Peter claims they had already entered the house! Oh what a shock! Yet another contradiction in the Bible!

      But that’s besides the point. The fact still remains that Peter’s “vision” violated the Biblical rule of “two witnesses” to decide the truth of every matter. You have yet to explain this. I can see you are getting desperate.

  43. “because even in Revelation, the same law was repeated: abstain from food sacrificed to idols and sexual immorality, or face judgement. ”

    Revelation is a highly symbolic book so the passages referring to abstaining from food sacrificed to idols do not literally mean that. It is symobolic for a lapse into false doctrine.

    The use of the word Jezebel is a proof of this.

    Other examples from the letters to the churches, which is the context in which this referenence to food sacrificed to idols occurs:

    14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

    19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death;

    The judgements are not literal judgements but symbolic. The same applies for the sins.

    17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

    The remedies here are also symbolic.

    As usual Faiz you either twist or ignore the context.

    Paul’s teaching is clear on this matter:

    Food Sacrificed to Idols
    (Ezekiel 14:1-11; Romans 14:13-23)

    1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. 2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
    4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
    7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. 8 But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse. 9 But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. 10 For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; 11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? 12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. 13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

      Oh how convenient! So now Revelation is “symbolic”, eh? You are such a liar, it’s not shocking any more.

      If the author was talking simply about “a lapse into false doctrine”, then why not just say that?

      “The use of the word Jezebel is a proof of this.”

      Jezebel is a name, and it refers to a false teacher, in this case, a “false prophetess”. Whether this is a person or just a symbol for “false doctrine”, the fact remains that Jezebel is blamed for making the churches do evil things, SUCH AS EATING FOOD SACRIFICED TO IDOLS. This is a specific act that is condemned, along with fornication.

      “The judgements are not literal judgements but symbolic. The same applies for the sins.”

      WRONG! These are very real threats. It’s actually proof that the Christians believed the end was coming soon. Read my article on Revelation for more on this: https://quranandbibleblog.wordpress.com/2015/05/31/the-book-of-revelation/

      “As usual Faiz you either twist or ignore the context.

      Paul’s teaching is clear on this matter:”

      Paul was a false apostle, as we have already seen. He knew that eating food sacrificed to idols was an evil act, but in the interest of gaining converts, he was willing to set aside any law he saw fit. He was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, who became all things to all people. That is enough to condemn him as a false teacher.

      Not only that, but he seems to actually say that there are indeed many gods, even though Christians believe in only one:

      “For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)”

      This is again from your KJV. Paul seems to be affirming henotheism, instead of monotheism. You shot yourself in the foot again, madman!

  44. The other possibility is that because fornication and the eating of meat offered to idols occurs together a full participation in the pagan ritual worship is in view here, not just the eating of the animal that was sacrificed.

    If I go with this interpretation there is no contradiction between Paul and Revelation.

    After the last occurence of the vision the men were already in the house.
