The following statements in the Bible are attributed to Jesus Christ (pbuh): (i) "My Father is greater than I." [The Bible, John 14:28]
(ii) "My Father is greater than all." [The Bible, John 10:29]
(iii) "…I cast out devils by the Spirit of God…." [The Bible, Mathew 12:28]
(iv) "…I with the finger of God cast out devils…." [The Bible, Luke 11:20]
(v) "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgement is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." [The Bible, John 5:30]
2. The Mission of Jesus Christ (pbuh) – to Fulfill the Law Jesus (pbuh) never claimed divinity for himself. He clearly announced the nature of his mission. Jesus (pbuh) was sent by God to confirm the previous Judaic law. This is clearly evident in the following statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh) in the Gospel of Mathew:
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
"Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." [The Bible, Mathew 5:17-20] 3. God Sent Jesus' (pbuh)
The Bible mentions the prophetic nature of Jesus (pbuh) mission in the following verses:
(i)"… and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me." [The Bible, John 14:24]
(ii)"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent." [The Bible, John 17:3]
4. Jesus Refuted even the Remotest Suggestion of his Divinity
Consider the following incident mentioned in the Bible:
"And behold, one came and said unto him, ‘Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?’
And he said unto him, ‘Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.’ " [The Bible, Mathew 19:16-17] Jesus (pbuh) did not say that to have the eternal life of paradise, man should believe in him as Almighty God or worship him as God, or believe that Jesus (pbuh) would die for his sins. On the contrary he said that the path to salvation was through keeping the commandments. It is indeed striking to note the difference between the words of Jesus Christ (pbuh) and the Christian dogma of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus (pbuh). 5. Jesus (pbuh) of Nazareth – a Man Approved of God
The following statement from the Bible supports the Islamic belief that Jesus (pbuh) was a prophet of God. "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know." [The Bible, Acts 2:22]
6. The First Commandment is that God is One The Bible does not support the Christian belief in trinity at all. One of the scribes once asked Jesus (pbuh) as to which was the first commandment of all, to which Jesus (pbuh) merely repeated what Moses (pbuh) had said earlier: "Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adonai Ikhad."
This is a Hebrew quotation, which means:
"Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord." [The Bible, Mark 12:29] It is striking that the basic teachings of the Church such as Trinity and vicarious atonement find no mention in the Bible. In fact, various verses of the Bible point to Jesus’ (pbuh) actual mission, which was to fulfill the law revealed to Prophet Moses (pbuh). Indeed Jesus (pbuh) rejected any suggestions that attributed divinity to him, and explained his miracles as the power of the One True God. Jesus (pbuh) thus reiterated the message of monotheism that was given by all earlier prophets of Almighty God.
NOTE: All quotations of the Bible are taken from the King James Version. III) Concept of God in Old Testament: 1. God is One
The following verse from the book of Deuteronomy contains an exhortation from Moses (pbuh):
"Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adna Ikhad". It is a Hebrew quotation which means: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord" [The Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4]
2. Unity of God in the Book of Isaiah
The following verses are from the Book of Isaiah:
(i) "I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour." [The Bible, Isaiah 43:11]
(ii) "I am Lord, and there is none else, there is no God besides me." [The Bible, Isaiah 45:5]
(iii) "I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me." [The Bible, Isaiah 46:9]
3. Old Testament condemns idol worship
(i) Old Testament condemns idol worship in the following verses:
"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:"
"Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God." [The Bible, Exodus 20:3-5]
(ii) A similar message is repeated in the book of Deuteronomy:
"Thou shalt have none other gods before me."
"Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that in the earth beneath, or that is in the water beneath the earth."
"Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God." [The Bible, Deuteronomy 5:7-9]
Soldiers from the US and Iranian backed Shia Iraqi army posing proudly with copies of "Immorality: The Other Face of Aisha". A vile disgusting book seeking to cast the beloved wife of the Prophet salAllahu 'alayhi wasallam as a cunning temptress and serial fornicator. The book is written by the famous Shi'ite hate preacher Yasir AlHabib, based in London under the auspices of the UK government who granted him amnesty after his imprisonment in Kuwait for sectarianism and hate speech. Here, he also runs a TV channel in which he and his hosts regularly curse the companions and the Prophet's wives spreading hate and vile sectarianism while openly encouraging terrorist acts such as the bombing of Sunni mosques (http://youtu.be/DIk2PR1rHbA).
Although many Shi'ites attempt to distance themselves from AlHabib's hateful rhetoric, in the book he draws his conclusions from classical Shi'ite works, thus in fact reflecting the mainstream Shia view towards Aisha (ra). It is the very same rhetoric spouted by the Shi'ite clergy of hate preachers from London to Dearborn to Karbala. The only difference between AlHabib and Shi'ite apologists is his abandonment of 'taqiyya' a religiously mandated form of concealment in which one is obligated to hide their true beliefs. Taqiyya plays an integral part of the Shi'ite belief system.
While Sunnis are the most vociferous in condemning terrorist acts of their own, being the most outspoken against lunatic groups such as ISIS who kill innocent Sunnis and Shia alike, you will be hard pressed to ever find the Shia condemning their own. Never will you see them condemning Shia death squads in Iraq responsible for the murder of thousands upon thousands simply for their faith, nor of the Iranian regime's oppression and murder of Sunnis in Iran simply for preaching their beliefs, nor will they condemn rather they will side with Bashar the mass murdering butcherer of over a quarter of a million people fully supported physically, militarily and financially by the Shia powers in the region. The Shia are masters of deflection tactics and they along with their ignorant fooled Sunni buddies pull out the sectarianism card and throw out allegations of being a terrorist/ISIS supporter to anyone who dares question their beliefs or uncovers their unfathomable number of hypocrisies while never addressing the topic itself.
Hypocrite Shi'ite preachers such as Ammar Nakhshwani and Muhammad Al-Hilli now try to link Sunni scholars like Ibn Taymiyyah to extremism and takfeer as the basis of groups such as ISIS. However they deftly avoid talking about the mass takfeer the twelver Shia religion makes on the entirety of the Muslim Ummah for their rejection of the fictional concept of Imamate (http://youtu.be/5MNj3x7uOag) which forms the foundation of Shi'ite hatred and murder of Sunnis in Iraq and Syria, not to mention the mass murdering role their awaited messiah will play once he emerges (http://bit.ly/1KHJ6zY). There is also a deeply theological rooted hatred for Syrians specifically in Shi'ite theology and this too has fueled sectarian killing.
So now, we openly have soldiers of a government army espousing hate speech and anti-Sunni rhetoric while having at their disposal the weaponry and training to kill burn and destroy. Are we going to see the Shia speak out against this murderous Sectarianism which they always have reserved for Sunnis?
