20. A real sacrifice is when you can't get back
what you have offered , so what would be the big deal about such a sacrifice if
God could recover the same offering? (according to the Christians' terminology)?
21. If all the Christians are saved through Jesus
and are going to Heaven no matter what they do, then the teachings of Jesus are
irrelevant and the definition of good and bad are also rendered irrelevant. If
this is not so, then do Christians who believe in Jesus yet do not follow his
teachings nor repent go to Hell?
22. How can Christians take deeds as irrelevant
after becoming one when Jesus says in Matthew 12:36; "But I say unto you
that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in
the Day of Judgment. For by the words thou shalt be justified, by the words thou
shalt be condemned"?
23. Christians say that people go to Heaven ONLY
THROUGH JESUS, yet Paul says in 1 CORINTHIANS 7:8-16 that the unbelieving
husband is acceptable to God because he is united with his wife and vice versa,
and their pagan children are also acceptable to God. So people can go to heaven
without believing in Jesus according to this.
24. How come the Bible says that ALL Israel is
saved although they don't believe in Jesus? Doesn't that contradict the claim in
the Bible that the only way to heaven is through Jesus?
25. According to Christians, those who have not
been baptized will go to Hell. So even the infants and babies go to Hell if not
baptized, since they are born with an inherited original sin. Doesn't this
contradict the definition of justice? Why would God punish people for sins they
The only place in the Bible where the Paraclete
was called the Holy Spirit is in John 4:26 "But the Paraclete, the Holy
Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and
bring to your remembrance
27.In John 16:7-8, it says: "But if go, I
will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world of sins and
of righteousness and of Judgment". What do "he" and
"him" refer here? DonŐt they refer to a man?
28.Does the Holy Spirit talk to good Christians
and bad Christians as well? Is the Holy spirit with them all the time or just at
certain times? When does it start visiting a person who wants to become a
29.How can you as a Christian tell if the Holy
Spirit is inside another Christian? How come many Christians fooled people by
claiming that the Holy spirit was inside them only to be converted to another
religion later on ?
30.Does the Holy Spirit dictate what Christians
should do without choice or freedom at all or does it only guide them and they
have the freedom to follow or not ?
31.If the Holy Spirit dictates what Christian
should do, why do Christians commit sins and make mistakes ? How can you explain
the conversion to other religions and atheism of many Christians? Are they told
to do that by the Holy Spirit?
32.If the Holy Spirit guides Christians only, and
they are free to do what they want, then how do we know that the writers of the
Gospels didn't make mistakes in writing them?
33.If Christians believe that the Holy Spirit
comes and talks to them everyday, why don't they ask the Holy Spirit about which
version of the Bible to follow since there are too many versions floating
34.Why do the Christians say that Jesus came with
a universal mission when he said that he was sent to the Jews only? He said to
the Canaanite woman who asked him to heal her daughter from demon-possession:
"I was sent ONLY to the lost sheep of Israel" and also said: "It
is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs",
If you read Matthew (28:1-10), Mark (16:1-20),
Luke (24:1-12), and John (20: 1-18), you will find contradicting stories. They
all agreed that the tomb was guarded for three days. However, they
reported the discovery of the empty tomb differently.
Matthew (28) and John (20) reported that Mary
Magdalene and the other Mary were the first to discover the tomb. Mark (16)
reports that Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome were the first
to discover the empty tomb.
The other gospels do not report of any such thing.
35. Which narration now is more authentic?
36.Why is the appearance of Jesus after the
crucifixion taken as a proof of his resurrection when there is an explanation
that he was not dead because someone else was crucified in his place when God
37.How did Matthew know of the claimed agreement
between the soldiers and the chief priest? Can't someone say that someone paid
the women a large sum of money and told them to spread the word around that
Jesus rose from the dead, with the same authenticity as that of the story of
38.Why did they believe that man in the white
clothes? Why did they believe he was an angel? John's narration is too strange,
since he says that Mary did not recognize Jesus(one of the two) while talking to
him, and she only recognized him when he called her by her name.
39.How does an empty tomb prove that Jesus was
crucified ? Isn't it that God is capable of removing another man from the tomb,
and of resurrecting him too?
40.The Gospels are believed to be the verbatim
words of God, they are supposed to be dictated by the Holy Spirit to the
Disciples who wrote them. If the source were the same, why shouldn't they
41.How could Matthew, Mark, Luke and John be
considered eyewitnesses of resurrection when the Bible implies that nobody at
all saw Jesus coming out of the tomb?
42.Why doesn't Mark 16:9-20 exist in as many
versions of the Bible while it exists as a footnote or between brackets in some
other versions? Is a footnote in the Bible still considered as God's word,
especially when it
43.Why does the Catholic Bible contain 73 books
while the Protestant Bible has only 66? With both claiming to have the complete
Word of God, which one should be believed and why?
44.Where do those new translations of the Bible
keep coming from when the original Bible is not even available ? The Greek
manuscripts which are translations themselves are not even similar with each
45.How can you take two gospels from writers who
never met Jesus, like Mark and Luke?
46.Why is half of the New Testament written by a
man who never even met Jesus in his lifetime? PAUL claimed with no proof that he
had met Jesus while on his way from Jerusalem to Damascus. PAUL was the main
enemy of Christianity. Isn't that reason enough to question the authenticity of
what he wrote? Why do the Christians call those books of the Old
Testament "God's Word" when the revisers of the RSV Bible say that
some of the authors are UNKNOWN? They say that the author of SAMUEL is
"UNKNOWN" and that of CHRONICLES is "UNKNOWN, PROBABLY COLLECTED
AND EDITED BY EZRA"!
47.Concerning the controversial issues in the
Bible, how can Christians decide by two-thirds majority what is God's Word and
what is not, as the prefaces of some Bibles say like that one of the RSV ?
48.Why does Luke in his gospel report the
Ascension on Easter Day, and in the Acts, in which he is recognized as the
author, FORTY days later?
49.The genealogy of Jesus is mentioned in Matthew
and Luke only. Matthew listed 26 forefathers from Joseph to David while Luke
enumerated 41 forefathers. Only Joseph matches with Joseph in those two lists.
Not a single other name matches! If these were inspired by God word by word, how
could they be
50.If Moses wrote the first books of the Old
Testament, how could Moses write his own obituary? Moses died in the fifth book
at age 120 as mentioned in Deut. 34:5-10.
51.In the King James Version, why does it report
SEVEN years of famine in II SAMUEL 24:13 while it reports THREE years of famine
in I CHRONICLES 21:12? Why did they change both to THREE years in the New
International Version and other versions?
52.Still In the same King James Version, why does
it say that Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign in II
CHRONICLES 21:12, while it says EIGHTEEN years in II KINGS 24:8? Why did thessey
change in both to EIGHTEEN in the new Versions?
53.In all versions, why does it say that David
slew the men of SEVEN HUNDRED chariots of the Syrians, and forty thousand
HORSEMEN as evidenced in II Samuel 10:18 while its says SEVEN THOUSAND men which
fought in chariots, and forty thousand FOOTMEN, in I CHRONICLES 19:18?
54.In all versions, why does it report TWO
thousand baths in I KINGS 7:26 while II CHRONICLES 4:5 reports THREE THOUSAND?
55.In the King James version, why does it report
that Solomon had FOUR THOUSAND stalls for horses in II CHRONICLES 9:25 while it
accounts that Solomon had FORTY THOUSAND stalls of horses in 1 KINGS 4:26? Why
did they change both to FOUR THOUSAND in the new versions?
56.In GENESIS 1, God's creation progresses from
grass to trees to fowls, whales, cattle and creeping things and finally to man
and woman. GENESIS 2, however, puts the creation of man before cattle and fowl
This section does not inquire or interrogate, but
rather provides the reader with some of the Qur'anic verses that address the
Christians in particular, and the people of the scripture in general. A great
likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust,
then said unto him: Be, and he was." Al-Qur'an 3:59.
People of the Scripture! Come to an agreement between us and you: that we shall
worship none but Allah, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that
none of us shall take others for Lords besides Allah. And if they turn away,
then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto him). "O
People of the Scripture! Why will you argue about, when the Torah and the Gospel
were revealed till
seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him and in the
hereafter, He will be one of the losers (Al-Qur'an 3:85).
because of their saying: We slew the Messiah Jesus, son of
Mary, and Allah's messenger. They slew him not nor crucified him, but it
appeared so unto them, and Lo! Those who disagree concerning it are in
doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they
slew him not for certain: But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever
Mighty, Wise. (Al-Qur'an 4:157-158).
O People of
the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter ought concerning
Allah save the truth. The Messiah Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of
Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him, so
believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not "Three"! Cease! (it
is ) better for you! Allah is only
One God. Far is it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a
son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah
is sufficient as defender. The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto
Allah, nor will the favoured
angels. Whosoever scorns His service and is proud, all such will assemble unto
Him. Then, as for those who believed and did good works, unto them will He give
them their wages in full, adding unto them of His bounty; and as for those who
were scornful and proud, then He will punish with a painful doom." (Al-qur'an
with those who say Lo! We are Christians, We made a covenant, but they forgot a
part of that whereof they were admonished. Therefore We have stirred up enmity
and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will inform them
of their handiwork. O People of the Scripture! Now has our messenger come unto
you, expounding unto you much of that which you used to hide in the Scripture,
and forgiving much. Now has come unto light from Allah and plain scripture:
Whereby Allah guides him who seeks His good pleasure unto paths of peace, He
brings them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guides them unto a
Straight Path. They indeed have disbelieved who say: Lo! Allah is the
messiah, son of Mary. Say: Who then can do ought against Allah if he had willed
to destroy the Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth?
allah's is the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between
them. He creates what he wills. And Allah is able to do all things. (Al-qur'an
surely disbelieve who say; Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of
Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O children of Israel, worship Allah, my
Lord and you Lord. Lo! Whosoever ascribes partners unto Allah, for him
Allah has forbidden Paradise. His abode is the Fire. For evildoers ,there will
be no helpers.They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of the
three; when there is no God save the One God. If they desist not from so saying,
a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve. Will they not rather
turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him? For Allah is oft-forgiving, most
merciful. Say: Serve you in place of Allah that which possesses for you neither
hurt nor use? Allah is the Hearer, the Knower. Say: O People of the Scripture!
Stress not in your religion other than the Truth, and follow not the vain desire
of folks who erred of old and led many astray, and erred from a plain
road." (Al-qur'an 5:72-77)
when Allah says: O Jesus, son of Mary: Did you say unto mankind: take me and my
mother for two gods beside Allah?, he says: Be glorified! It was not mine to
utter that to which I had no right. If I used to say it, then You Knew it,
You know what is in my mind, and I know not what is in Your mind. Lo! You, only
You, are the knower of things hidden.I spoke unto them only that which You
commanded me (saying); worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. I witness of them
while I dwelt among them, and when You took me, You were the Watcher over them.
You are witness over all things. If
You punish them, Lo! They are Your slaves, and if you forgive them (Lo! They are
Your slaves). Lo! You, only you are the Mighty, the Wise. Allah says: This
is a day in which their truthfulness profits the truthful, for theirs are
Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure forever, Allah
taking pleasure in them and they in Him. That is the great triumph. (Al-qur'an
Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: 'The
Messiah is the son of Allah'. That is their saying with their mouths. They
imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah fights against them.
How perverse they are! They have taken as Lord besides Allah their rabbis and
their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only
One God. There is no God save Him. Be He glorified from all that they
ascribe as partners (unto him)! Faint
would they put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah disdains
(ought) save that He shall perfect His light, however much the disbelievers are averse.
He it is Who has sent His messenger with guidance and the Religion
of Truth, to cause it to prevail over all religions, however much the idolaters
may be averse. O you who believe! Lo! many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the
(Christian) monks devour the wealth of mankind wantonly and debar (people) from
the way of Allah. They who hoard up gold and silver and spend it not in the
way of Allah, unto them give tidings (O Muhammad) of a painful doom.
On the Day when it will (all) be heated in the fire of Hell, and their
foreheads and their flanks and their backs will be branded therewith (and it
will be said unto them): Here is that which you hoarded for yourselves. Now
taste of what you used to hoard." (Al-qur'an 9:30-35).
Christians claim that the prophecy in Deut. 18:18
refers to Jesus and not Muhammad. The verse says: "I will raise them up a
prophet from among THEIR BRETHREN, LIKE UNTO THEE, and I will put my words in
his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." The
only reason they resort to such
Muhammad was an Arab, and the Arabs are from
Ishmael, son of Abraham, while Moses was a Jew, and the Jews are from Isaac, son
of Abraham. Hence, the term THEIR BRETHREN refers to the children of the first
son being brethren of the children of the other. This couldn't apply to Jesus,
since he was a Jew.
According to the Christians, Jesus went to Hell
for three days while Moses did not. Therefore, Jesus is not like Moses. (In
Islam, none of the three Prophets went to Hell)
Moses and Muhammad were born to fathers and
mothers while Jesus was born to amother alone.
Moses and Muhammad got married and had children,
while Jesus did not marry at all.
Moses and Muhammad got problems and difficulties
from their people initially, but were accepted by them at the end., whereas
Jesus was rejected by his people at the start and is still rejected by the Jews
until today. "He (Jesus) came unto his own, but his own received him
not". ( John 1:11)
Moses and Muhammad had power, besides being
prophets. They both performed some capital punishments, for example, while Jesus
had no power over his people. "My kingdom is not of this world", Jesus
said in John 18:36 .
Moses and Muhammad brought new laws while Jesus
Moses was forced to emigrate in adulthood to
Median while Muhammad was forced to emigrate at that stage in his life too,
towards Madina . Whereas Jesus did not have such forced emigration in his
Moses and Muhammad both died of natural deaths
after which they were buried ,while the same could not be said of Jesus. He was
neither killed nor crucified at all, according to the Qur'an and did not die a
57.Why won't you, Christian reader, come to hear
and learn of the true religion of Jesus?
58.Have you, as a Christian , learned of Islam and
if so, was it from the true Muslims?
59.As a Christian, do you agree that out of
fairness and honesty you must investigate what Islam says about God, Jesus,
including this life and the hereafter?
60.Being a Christian, do you also believe that we
must all stand accountable to our Creator and that the Creator is Perfect and
Just? As a sincere believer in God, don't you owe it upon yourself to find out
the entire unadulterated truth regardless of the consequences?
I invite you to read, learn or ask
information about Islam.
