(8) pryer of jesu Almighty God doesn’t pray to anyone. Jesus [Peace Be Upon Him] did and said others to do the same.
Like every prophet ,Jesus [PBUH] prayed to Almighty God and said others to do the same
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
“‘Father hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
3 Give us each day our daily bread.
4 Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation.
It is Mentioned in Matthew 6:6
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
It is Mentioned in Mark 11:25
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. [Matthew 4:10]
’Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’ [Luke 4:8]why urs worship jesus if jesus worship god?s
(4) According to the Bible, "God hasAccording to the Bible, "God has got Sons by Tons"
· got Sons by Tons"
“That the sons of God saw the daughters of men……” (Genesis 6:2)
“……when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men….”(Genesis 6:4)
“……Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:” (Exodus 4:22)
“…....for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.” (Jeremiah 31:9)
“……..which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.” (Luke 3:38)
“ I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day
have I begotten thee.” (Psalms 2:7)
God also says to David
“26 He will call out to me, 'You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.' 27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth. (Psalms 89:26-27)
So we can see that from the above quoted verses that in the idiom of the Jews. Every Righteous person is the son of God. But the common verse quoted to show the difference between Jesus and other “sons” of God is
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
King James Version goes to the ancient manuscripts. But if we read the RSV (Revised Standard Version), revised by thirty-two scholars of the highest eminence backed by fifty cooperating denominations. They say:
“Yet the King James Version has grave defects. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the development of Biblical studies and the discovery of many manuscripts more ancient than those upon which the King James Version was based, made it manifest that these defects are so many and so serious as to call for revision of the English translation” (Preface RSV)
And in the RSV this blasphemous word “begotten” has been expunged as a fabrication, as an interpolation. This is how the verse reads in RSV.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (RSV, John 3:16)
This word “begotten” is not there in the most ancient manuscripts. Its not there even in some other versions like NIV and Good News Bible.
“Son of God” only means a righteous servant of God, a peacemaker, the one who obeys God, the one who is led by the spirit of God. Who says so? Jesus says so
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” (Mathew 5:9)
“9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. (Mathew 5:9, NIV)
Paul testifies the same thing.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” (Romans 8:14)
See what John (the supposed author of the fourth gospel writes)
12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (John 1:12-13)
“Son of God” does not prove anything. It only means a righteous servant of God as Jesus (pbuh) and Paul both testify.
It is the term, which was frequently used in Semitic languages like Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic etc, but Alhumdulillah we have dropped this term in Arabic because of the misunderstanding that was created.
Even in Arabic, son of something, father of something only meant metaphorical. Like there was a companion of the Prophet (pbuh) by the name of “Abu Huraira”. “Abu Huraira” literally means father of the kitten. He was given the name because he loved cats. It doesn’t mean he literally gave birth to a kitten.
If someone calls Jesus the son of God in a sense of a righteous person, as a peacemaker then there is no problem. But he is not the begotten son of God as the Christian says.
(1) TheThe Religion of Jesus
Religion of Jesus
Now this may be interesting to some people. What was the religion of Jesus Christ (pbuh). Was he a Christian?
He never claimed to be a Christian, infact he never even heard the word “Christian” in his life.
It is not a Greek/Aramaic word. The Hebrew word for “rub, massage, anoint” is “Masaha” from which we get the Hebrew word “Messiah” in Arabic as “Maseeh” Which when translated into Greek becomes “Christoss” i.e. the anointed one, and when we chop of the “oss” we are left with “Christ”.The word “Christianity” doesn’t even exist in the Bible. The word that is found in the Bible is “Christian” which was used first time by the people who did not believe in Jesus.
“and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.” (Acts 11:26)
The word “Christian” is nowhere to be found in gospels. So the question arises what was the religion of Jesus if not Christianity.
Suppose we get hold of Jesus Christ (pbuh) in his second coming and ask him what is his religion. Will he say “Christian”? No! He never heard the word in his life. If Christian, then which Christian Catholic, Protestant, Jehovah’s Witness? He never heard either of those words. When we ask him this question, we’ll expect him to say “My religion is total submission to God’s will” and one short word for this in Arabic language is “Islam”
Now someone may say, well how can this be his religion because Islam came into existence only 1400 years ago and did not even exist at the time of Jesus?
The answer is that it is a GRAVE misconception that Islam started 1400 years ago. Infact, Islam is there since man first set foot on the earth and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was not the founder of this religion, infact he was the final messenger of God to whom was revealed the Holy Quran. Islam (Submission to God’s will) was the religion of ALL the Prophets of God, they all taught human beings to submit their wills to Almighty God. Jesus too did the same. See what the Bible says
“By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.” (John 5:30)
"Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will." (Mark 14:36)
Anyone who says “not what I will but what God wills” in Arabic that person is called a Muslim. Jesus Christ (pbuh) also commanded his followers to submit their wills to the will of God.
“Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Mathew 7:21)
The Holy Quran too testifies that Jesus Christ and his disciples were Muslims
“When Jesus found Unbelief on their part He said: "Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah." Said the disciples: "We are Allah.s helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims.” (Quran 3:52)
In a nutshell, Jesus Christ (pbuh) was one of the mightiest messenger of Almighty God who submitted his will to God and asked people to do the same. In other words, he (Jesus) was a Muslim and he commanded his followers to become ones as well.
