The God that never was.

The God that never was.

Islam is the only religion that teaches the existence of a perfect God. A perfect god means that there is no sharer in His nature and His attributes:

" Say He is God, the one and only; god the eternal, absolute. He neither begets nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him" Al Quran 112:1-4

There has appeared a man in Benoni . He is not qualified in theology, but is fondly cherishing the self-delusion that he is an apostle of Christ, appointed by God to convert Muslims to Christianity. Because he is a lawyer by profession, he is adept by juggling with words and quoting the Holy Quran totally out of context without knowing a word of Arabic. He wants Muslims to believe that Jesus was also a God , a belief that is abhorrent to us, because it is an antithesis of the absolute perfection of Allah subhaanahu wa taa' aala

Thus intent upon reversing the process of truth which is : " and say : The truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Surely falsehood is ever bound to vanish."[Quran,17-81]. In this he will never suceed because the process of truth is irreversible .

Two reasons

He has given two reasons to prove that Jesus is god ,viz 1] "when we say Jesus is deity (or even god for that matter), we do not make him the Father ! he is one with the father and therefore" HE SHARES HIS NATURE" and 2] "HE IS IN EVERY WAY LIKE THE FATHER but he is not the father".

In short, according to him Jesus is god because HE SHARES THE NATURE OF GOD and HE IS IN EVERY WAY LIKE GOD. These two reasons given by him to prove divinity of Jesus are so puerile that they speak volumes of their legal training.

Numerous quotations from the Bible are given here to prove that Jesus NEITHER SHARED THE NATURE OF GOD, nor is he IN EVERY WAY LIKE GOD. He can therefore NEVER be God. We have given the quotations from the bible without additional comment, because the Bible speaks for itself ! TO SAY Jesus IS GOD IS NOT ONLY A MOCKERY OF GODHOOD, BUT BLASPHEMY OF THE LOWEST ORDER AND AN INSULT TO THE INTELLEGENCE OF MEN !

Note unless otherwise stated, all quotations from the bible are given from the Authorized version . in our headings and sub headings we have referred to Jesus as "God" in inverted commas in order to show the ABSURDITY of the claim of this man that Jesus is God.

THE BIRTH OF "GOD"

"God " was created from the seed of David : "concerning his son Jesus Christ our lord, which was made of the SEED of David according to the flesh "[romans,1:3]

Epilogue

According to this self appointed apostle of Christ, Jesus is god because 1] "he shared the nature of God" 2] because "in every way he is like God" but according to the quotations of the bible given above,we find that Jesus did neither SHARE THE NATURE OF GOD nor is he IN EVERY WAY LIKE GOD. he is then definitely NOT God ! the onus to prove that Jesus is God now rests with this Christian, either he must prove that Jesus is God, or he must admit that he is polytheist [ believer in more than one god] WITH ALL THE TRICKS AND VERBAL LEGERDEMAIN OF HIS PROFESSION, HE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO PROVE THAT JESUSIS GOD !!

He and his fellow preachers in Christ, will never succeed in convincing the Muslims that Jesus was anything other than a natural man and a prophet of God, sent unto the house of Israel to bear the good news of the coming of the Kingdom Of GOD, which prophecy was fulfilled with the advent of the Holy prophet Muhammed sallalahu alaihi wa salllam

anyone is most welcome to reproduce or translate this booklet in any language, but when translating Bible quotations do not try free hand translation but you may kindly refer a authorized Bible for this purpose.
