"Say: O 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
According to most Christians, Jesus was
God-incarnate, full man and full God.
Can the finite and the infinite be one? "To be full" God means freedom
from finite forms and from helplessness, and to be "full man" means
the absence of divinity.
1.To be son is to be less than divine and to be
divine is to be no one's son. How could Jesus have the attributes of sonship and
2.Christians assert that Jesus claimed to be God
when they quote him in John 14:9: "He that has seen me has seen the
Father". Didn't Jesus clearly say that people have never seen God, as it
says in John 5:37: "And the father himself which has sent me, has borne
witness of me. You have NEITHER HEARD HIS VOICE
3.Christians say that Jesus was God because he was
called Son of God, Son of Man, Messiah, and "saviour". Ezekiel
was addressed in the Bible as Son of Man. Jesus spoke of "the peace
makers" as Sons of God. Any person who followed the Will and Plan of God
was called SON OF GOD in the Jewish tradition and in their language (Genesis
6:2,4; Exodus 4:22; Psalm 2:7; Romans 8:14). "Messiah" which in Hebrew
4.Christians claim that Jesus acknowledged that he
and God were one in the sense of nature when he says in John 10:30 "I and
my father are one". Later on in John 17:21-23, Jesus refers to his
followers and himself and God as one in five places. So why did they give the
previous "one" a different meaning from the other five
5.Is God three-in-one and one in three
simultaneously or one at a time?
6.If God is one and three simultaneously, then
none of the three could be the complete God. Granting that such was the case,
then when Jesus was on earth, he wasn't a complete God, nor was the "father
in Heaven" a whole God. Doesn't that contradict what Jesus always said
about His God and our God in heaven, his Lord and our Lord ? Does that also mean
that there was no complete god then, between the claimed crucifixion and the
7.If God is one and three at a time, then who was
the God in heaven when Jesus was on earth? Wouldn't this contradict his many
references to a God in Heaven that sent him?
8.If God is three and one at the same time, who
was the God in Heaven within three days between the claimed crucifixion and the
claimed resurrect ion?
9.Christians say that: "The Father(F) is God,
the Son(S) is God, and the Holy Ghost(H) is God, but the Father is not the Son,
the Son is not the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Ghost is not the Father". In
simple arithmetic and terms therefore, if F = G, S = G, and H = G, then it
follows that F = S = H, while the second part of the
10.If Jesus was God, why did he tell the man who
called him "good master" not to call him "good" because
accordingly, there is none good but his God in Heaven alone?
11.Why do Christians say that God is three-in-one
and one in three when Jesus says in Mark 12:29: "The Lord our God is one
Lord" in as many places as yet in the Bible?
12.If belief in the Trinity was such a necessary
condition for being a Christian, why didn't Jesus teach and emphasize it to the
Christians during his time? How were those followers of Jesus considered
Christians without ever hearing the term Trinity? Had the Trinity been the
spinal cord of Christianity, Jesus would have emphasized it on many occasions
and would have taught and explained it in detail to the people.
13.Christians claim that Jesus was God as they
quote in John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God". This is John speaking and not Jesus. Also, the
Greek word for the first occurrence of God is HOTHEOS which means "the
God" or "God" with a capital "G", while the Greek word
14.Wasn't the word "god" or "TONTHEOS"
also used to refer to others as well as in II Corinthians 4:4 "(and the
Devil is) the god of this world" and in Exodus 7:1 "See , I have made
thee (Moses ) a god to Pharaoh"?
Christians say that "GOD LOST His only son to
save us". To whom did God lose Jesus if he owns the whole universe?
15. If it was agreeable with God's Majesty to have
sons, He could have created a million sons the like of Jesus. So what is the big
clear deal about this only son?
16.Why does the Bible say that Jesus wanted to die
on the cross, when the one on the cross was shouting "My God, my God, why
have you forsaken me?" according to Matthew 27:45 and Mark 15:33?
17. If God had wanted to save us, couldn't He have
done that without sacrificing Jesus?
18. God is Just, and justice requires that nobody
should be punished for the sins of others, nor should some people be saved by
punishing other people. Doesn't the claim that God sacrificed Jesus to save us
because He was Just, contradict the definition of justice?
19. People sacrifice things they have to get
something they don't have when they can't have both. Christians say that
"God SACRIFICED His only son to save us". We know that God is
Almighty; to whom did He sacrifice Jesus?
