The True Concept of God
The True Status of Jesus (peace be upon him)
Quotations from the Quran, New Testament and Old Testament
The God (Allah, in the Arabic language) is only One, not three in One, nor One in three!
Say: 'People of the Book, let us come to a common word between us and you that we will worship none except Allah, that we will associate none with Him, and that none of us take others for lords besides Allah.' If they turn away, say: 'Bear witness that we are Muslims.' (Quran 3:64)
They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them. Why turn they not to Allah, and seek His forgiveness? For Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. Christ the son of Mary was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth! (Quran 5:73-75)
Torah: "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! (Deuteronomy 6:4)
Bible: Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; (Mark 12:29)
Quran: And your God is one God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. (Quran 2:163)
‘I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. ‘You shall have no other gods before Me. (Deuteronomy 5:6-7) – There is only 1 God(Allah), not 3 in 1, or 1 in 3.
"Do not think that I(Jesus) came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17:19) – Jesus did not come to abolish the law of The Old Testament of the Bible.
“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. (John 17:3) - This verse clearly shows that there is only 1 true God(Allah), not 3, and that Jesus Christ is the Prophet, whom this only true God(Allah) send.
Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'" (Luke 4:8) - Don’t worship Prophet Jesus who was a man, worship the only true God(Allah), just like Muslims.
Jesus said to her, "Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'" (John 20:17)
They do blaspheme who say: "Allah is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help. (Quran 5:72)
It is not (possible) for any human being unto whom Allah had given the Scripture and wisdom and the prophethood that he should afterwards have said unto mankind: Be slaves of me instead of Allah; but (what he said was): Be ye faithful servants of the Lord by virtue of your constant teaching of the Scripture and of your constant study thereof. (Quran 3:79)
Man was never, is never and will be never God(Allah), because man and God(Allah) have different qualities, attributes. Prophet Jesus was a man, not God(Allah).
"God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? "Behold, I have received a command to bless; When He has blessed, then I cannot revoke it. (Numbers 23:19-20) – God is not a man, but Jesus was a man, therefore Jesus is not God. God is not the son of man, but Jesus was the son of man, therefore Jesus is not God, according to the Bible.
The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, "Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods In the heart of the seas'; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God-- Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you. (Ezekiel 28:1-3) – Man is not God!
But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29) – We must obey God(Allah) rather than men(Jesus), according to the Bible.
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, (1 Timothy 2:5) – Jesus is a man, but God cannot be a man, therefore Jesus is not God, according to the Bible.
But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. (Romans 5:15)
“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know- (ACT 2:22) – The man Jesus didn’t preformed miracles by himself, but the one and only God(Allah) preformed miracles through him. Jesus is not Almighty.
Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. (Genesis 17:1) – Only God is Almighty, according to the Bible.
So Jesus said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. (John 8:28) – Jesus is the son of man, therefore Jesus is not God, because God is not the son of man, according to the Bible(Numbers 23:19). The man Jesus can do nothing on his own initiative, because he’s not almighty. Only God(Allah) is almighty.
Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him, He said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" He answered, "Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?" Jesus said to him, "You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you." (John 9:35-37)
Some more discussion on the Concept of God – By Dr. Zakir Naik
“Some people argue that God can do everything, then why cannot He take human form? If God wishes He can become a human being. But then He no longer remains God, because the qualities of God and human beings in many respects are completely incompatible.”
“God does not have a beginning while human beings have a beginning. You cannot have a person not having a beginning and at the same time having a beginning. Human beings have an end. You cannot have a being, which has no end and an end at the same time. It is meaningless.”
“Moreover if God takes human form, the same human cannot later become God, since human beings, by definition, do not possess the power to become God. The worship of God in a human form is therefore a logical fallacy and should be abhorred in all its forms.”
“There is nothing whatever like create him” (Qur’an 42:11)
God does not perform ungodly acts:
Hence we cannot imagine God telling a lie, being unjust, making a mistake, forgetting things and such other human failings. Similarly God can do injustice if he wants, but He will never do it, because being unjust is an ungodly act.
“Allah in never unjust In the least degree” (Qur’an 4:40)
“Allah is the doer of all He intends” (Qur’an 85:16)
“We must keep in mind that Allah intends only Godly acts and not ungodly acts.”
God(Allah) never intended and will never intend to become a human, because human beings and God have different qualities, attributes. If God would be a human and a God at the same time, then it would be a contradiction. God does not make any contradictions, because He’s not stupid by going against His own laws and by making errors, but He’s all wise, without faults. God(Allah) is the Truth.
“WORSHIP THE CREATOR (Allah), NOT HIS CREATION(for example: human beings)!”
Jesus was tempted by the evil Devil, but God can not be tempted by the evil, therefore Jesus is not God.
Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. (James 1:13-15) – Devil is evil. God cannot be tempted by evil.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.’” Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU’; and ‘ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.’” Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written, ‘YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.’” Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’” Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him. (Matthew 4:1-11) - Jesus was tempted by evil, by devil. That means Jesus is not God, because God cannot be tempted by evil, by devil.
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry. (Luke 4:1-2)
A ruler questioned Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. (Luke 18:18-19) - Jesus denied being good, by addressing not himself as being good, but by addressing only God alone as being good.
Is Jesus the only son of God according to the Bible? (NO)
Does God have any children? (NO)
God creates, not fertilizes(begets)! He didn’t fertilize(beget) anyone, He created everyone(beside Himself)!
Having children is an act of God’s creation(it’s an animal, human act), obviously not an act of God, because God is not like His own creation(for example: humans). He is perfect(without limitations, needs, faults).
If one has a child, then the child has to have similar qualities to the one who has fertilize(beget) it. Jesus has totally different qualities than God. God does not have any children.
God gave life to Jesus just like to other human beings.
Only one perfect God(Allah) is the creator and sustainer of everything, everyone and He gave life to everyone, that’s why only He deserves to be worshiped and served.
The important Christian prayer: The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, …
Most Christians teach that Jesus is the only son of God, but Bible teaches that God has much more children than only one! In the reality both of those teachings are false. ________________________________________________________________________
When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying,
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
“Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. (Matthew 5:1-9) – So if Jesus would be the only son of God, would he said, that the people for being peacemakers would be called the sons of God? No, because that would be a lie, if Jesus would be the only son of God. We know that Jesus wouldn’t lie, because lying is a sin according to the Bible. In reality God doesn’t have children.
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Romans 8:14) – God has more than one son, according to the Bible.
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26) –According to the Bible, we’re all sons of God by faith in Prophet Jesus.
The LORD said to Moses, "When you go back to Egypt see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have put in your power; but I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. "Then you shall say to Pharaoh, 'Thus says the LORD, "Israel is My son, My firstborn. (Exodus 4:21-22)
“I have found David My servant; With My holy oil I have anointed him, With whom My hand will be established; My arm also will strengthen him. “The enemy will not deceive him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. “But I shall crush his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him. “My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, And in My name his horn will be exalted. “I shall also set his hand on the sea And his right hand on the rivers. "He will cry to Me, 'You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.' "I also shall make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. (Psalm 89:20-27) – God promised to make Prophet David His son, according to the Bible.
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. (Job 1:6)
"You are the sons of the LORD your God; you shall not cut yourselves nor shave your forehead for the sake of the dead. (Deuteronomy 14:1) – According to the Bible, God does not have only one son.
And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are the children of Allah and His loved ones." Say: "Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you are but human beings, of those He has created, He forgives whom He wills and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and to Him is the return (of all). (Quran 5:18)
Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him. (Quran 112:1-4)
It is He Who gives Life and Death; and when He decides upon an affair, He says to it, "Be", and it is. (Quran 40:68)
The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was. The Truth (comes) from thy Lord alone; so be not of those who doubt. (Quran 3:59-60) - “God(Allah) explains that Jesus, who was created without a father, is no different than Adam, who was created without a mother or a father” (quotation from QIslam.com)
It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, "Be," and it is. (Quran 19:35)
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything. That is Allah, your Lord! there is no god but He, the Creator of all things: then worship ye Him: and He hath power to dispose of all affairs. (Quran 6:101-102)
