    WHO IS JESUS CHRIST TO YOU? Striking question indeed. Who is Jesus Christ to you? A Lord, Master, Teacher or Prophet?

    Whatever! As you share your views...Why Did He Ever Come To This World?

      To me, Jesus is a man who loved people and saw that even the most enlightened people are as vulnerable as the the "sinners".  He is a man who wanted to change the world with his love and gave up his life to prove that he loved us more than himself. 

      A man of love.  A lover of man and a physically embodiement of love.  He came to give people hope, to prove his love and to show people what love is. 

      I don't believe he was God born perfect from the start but made perfect by his own will and desire to give the world a little peace or peice of what love is.  I think He is a lot like a lot of people today who really want a pleasant Earth and a life that is fullfilled with spiritual goodness and love and what made him special was not that he was "perfect" but because he set a path up for people to follow in their right hearts about peace and love.

      Physically I don't believe there was anything special about him, what was special was in his heart and his ability to believe in something so much so that he suffered a very brutal and painful death just to prove that love can conquer all.

      Today we could have a world full of Christ but unfortunately other things have become more important than unity and love and the transgresions of today aren't really even transgressions, just the inability to make any spiritual steps foward and move the world in a direction that is accepting of all man without the need to "indoctrinate", convert or opress.

      Today is the same as it was when Jesus was living on the Earth.  Worships and alliences to things that come to no avail for the meek, poor, hungry and or lost.  But prosperity to the "wicked", rich and fat. 

      He came to show us why some of the things that we do are wrong and to give understanding to those who understand it and a reason to still love regardless of the natural circumstances and the habitual inabality to live at peace with each other.

      If anyone besides God could be God, then I would definitely bow to Jesus. smile

        I too believe he came at a time when people were looking for hope.  Jesus offered that and people flocked to him.  The rich or well to do didn't need to seek him or what he offered.  That is why in the gospel we read over and over how Jesus spent his time with the sick, the poor the "meek".  Those were the ones seeking release and they found it in Jesus.

          the lord Jesus is a great teacher like the lord moses, and the lord Muhammad; all of them came from God to learn us the way of life.
          may be talking about the lord- lord doesn't mean God it's English word equal the the word master or  MR. for respect-  Jesus is special issue because many christian believe in him same as God-the father- ; But Muslims who have the last message from God  after 600 years from Jesus in their holy book state that the lord Jesus is just a man, and his life and death just test from God; and that's the reason Muslims believe in Jesus as prophet  same like the prophet of Islam-Muhammad- and others prophets all same in respect as all of then were great teachers from God for us; but who will follow them?
          And also any Muslim believe in all books that came from God; bible, Torah, and Quran; so, really Muslims present God messages, Muslims present the pure Christianity of christian, pure Jews believe in God, which are included inside Islam message clear and strong and that's the power of Islam which it's same message all times from God to us; but who really follow God message?

                  The messenger was man, not any god, the message their idea through knowledge that was limited and then distorted, which is the way of men, the Quoran is no different to the bible in that sense.Men wrote of their god as if he/she/it was the empowering neurosis they suffered from themselves.

          Best known to you Mark, "Jesus is a construct to subjugate fools"

          Even the wise still seek Him. Like I've always said; It's a faith walk and not of sensory perceptions.

          Jehovah's Word became flesh in Him to be made an ultimate sacrifice of a holy and pure blood far bigger and better than that of pigeons and bulls.

          His Death and Resurrection is the "BIG MYSTERY" that lucifer never understood earlier, too BIG for the religious world to comprehend!

                Jesus is my Lord.
                Devil remains me virus. He is damaging what he can. But what he perverted he is also afflicted with. This is why he is like a zero, as you said. It is the man who thinks, works for him and man do not realize it, which is very sad. He does not know who is he, he is senile.

            There is much in what you say. He led a revolution against the Roman Empire and was so successful that eventually the Roman Empire coopted his teachings as its state religion under Charlemagne.

            But that spelt the end of the teaching of Jesus Christ, too. For the Empire interpreted it to suit its requirements and justified a whole lot of un-Christian activities like slavery, colonialism, imperialism, apartheid and a host of others.

            If Christ comes back to Earth again, he will hardly recognise what all goes on in his name.

          Andrew made his faith statement.
          My statement is Jesus is my Lord. His is Son of living God and God resurrected Him.
          He is not religious leader, or teacher or prophet only. He is Last Adam who never sin and defeated death and crashed the head of the Satan.
          Others made also own statements. Many are religious but religion will not help.
          To Mark: Your religion is the atheism. But you don't have to be rude and call us fools or else. Your religion did not prove you are right at all.

                    The whole idea that he was a real person is ridiculous. The message is there though. People like Andrew - now calling me a liar - are typical of those who do not understand the message and try to make it into an external thing.

                    There is no external god. God is you - and me.

      Muslims believe in Hazrat Eisa (Jesus) peace be upon him, Jesus (pbuh) was born miraculously and one the mightiest messengers of Allah. We believe in INJEEL (which is not present today) as the testament of Jesus (pbuh) which was revelead for the people of that time until Quran came unto Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

      Further

      Holy Qur’ân: Chapter 4,Verse 171: O People of the Book! Do not go to extremes in your religion: nor say of Allah anything but the truth. Verily, Christ Jesus the son of Mary was no more than a messenger of Allah, and His Word which he bestowed upon Mary, And a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and his messengers. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: For your Allah is One God: Glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all things in the heavens and the earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

      The above mentioned verse of the Qur’an mentions the word TRINITY. No where in all of the Bibles you will find this word. In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus (pbuh) himself says, “I am God” or where he says, “worship me”. In fact the Bible contains statements attributed to Jesus (pbuh) in which he preached quite the contrary. Consider the following statements in the Bible, attributed to Jesus Christ (pbuh):

      My Father is Greater than I – John 14:28
      My Father is Greater than all – John 10:29
      … with the finger of God cast out devils … - Luke 11:20

        John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  “If you know Me, you also know My Father.  From now on you do know Him and have seen Him.”

        John 17:6 I have revealed Your name to the men You gave Me from the world.
        11 1/2; 12, Holy Father protect them by Your name that You have given Me.   ( So is His name Jesus or God?  Does it matter.  Sounds like God's true name is Jesus or Jesus' true name is God)

        John 9: 37-38 Jesus answered, “You have seen Him; in fact, He is the One speaking with you.” I believe, Lord!” he said, and he worshiped Him.

        John 10:30, I and the Father are one.

        25, I did tell you and you don't believe, Jesus answered them. “The works that I do in My Father's name testify about Me.  But you do not believe because you are not My sheep.  My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow Me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish—ever!  No one will snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all.  No one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.  The Father and I are one.

        Who was the God of Abraham?

        Jesus says  John 8: 54-58,  If I glorify Myself, Jesus answered, My glory is nothing.  My Father — you say about Him, He is our God—He is the One who glorifies Me.  you've never known Him, but I know Him.  If I were to say I don't know Him, I would be a liar like you.  But I do know Him and I keep His word.  Your father Abraham was over joyed that he would see My day; he saw it and rejoiced.  The Jews replied, You aren't 50  years old yet, and You've seen Abraham?  Jesus said to them, I assure you: Before Abraham was, I am.

          John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life. no man cometh unto the father but by me.

          Agreed,

          because every messenger is the way, the truth and the life in his time. The life of all the Prophets are detailed explanations of each and every verse of their testaments. Without watching, observing and following their way of life we can not even think about obeying Allah perfectly.

          If Muslims want to reach Allah (God) then it is obligatory to follow the actions, sayings and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

          If Jews want to understand and obey Allah perfectly then it is compulsory for them to follow Prophet Moses (pbuh).
          Now if you read the context of John 14:6 then you will come to realize the main theme of the verse which is that if Christians want to understand and follow the teachings of Allah then they must follow the complete actions, sayings and teachings of Prophet Jesus (pbuh). The verse does not mention that Jesus said: worship me.


          John 17:6 I have revealed Your name to the men You gave Me from the world.
          11 1/2; 12, Holy Father protect them by Your name that You have given Me.   ( So is His name Jesus or God?  Does it matter.  Sounds like God's true name is Jesus or Jesus' true name is God)


          Consider if i dont like my name and i approach my parents and say, "please change your name that you have given me" does not mean that my parents have got the same same as i do or vice versa.

          John 9: 37-38 Jesus answered, “You have seen Him; in fact, He is the One speaking with you.” I believe, Lord!” he said, and he worshiped Him.

          Read the preceeding verses and you will come to know the exact theme of this verse, Jesus (pbuh) answering his disciples that you dont need to talk to God for your guidence, as i take revelation and the words are the God's words, not my own.     

          John 10:30, I and the Father are one.


          You have to go to the Gospel of John, Ch. No.10, Verse No. 23, that  ‘Jesus walked into the temple, in Solomon’s porch’. Verse No. 24 says, and the Jews came around him and asked him. ‘How long does thou make us doubt? - If thou art the Christ, tell us plainly’.
          Verse No.25 says, ‘I told you, but you believe me not - the works that I do in my father’s name, - they bear witness of me. Verse No.26 says that, ‘you believe not because you are not my sheep, as I   said unto  you’.
          The Jews, they are asking Jesus Christ  (peace be upon him) that ‘Why don’t you speak plainly?’. So he tells them that…‘Yes I am the Messiah - I have told you clearly, but because you are not my sheep, you don’t believe in me.
          Verse No.27 continues…Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) continues saying that… ‘My sheep - they hear my voice, and I know them - and they follow me.
          Verse No.28, that… ‘I give them eternal life - no man can pluck them out of my hand, and they shall not perish’.
          Verse No.29 says ‘My father who giveth to me, He is greater than all - No man can pluck them out of my father’s hand. Then
          Verse No. 30 says, ‘I and my father are one’ – ‘Any person who has little bit sense can make out,  ‘I and my father are one’ doesn’t mean one - as one person. It means one is purpose.
          Verse No.28 says, ‘No man can pluck them out of my hand – Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) says- ‘No man can pluck them out of my hand’.
          Verse No.29 is saying. ‘No man can pluck them out of my father’s hand’.
          Verse No.30 says  ‘I and my father are one’ -In purpose. Both Jesus Christ  (peace be upon him) and Almighty God - they are one in purpose. If I say that my father is an Engineer … and he is an Engineer… Alhamdulillah - Even I am an Engineer. If I say, ‘I and my father are one’ - What does it mean? It means one in purpose - As Engineering profession, my father is an Engineer  - Even I am an Engineer. It doesn’t mean that ‘I and my father are one’ -In person. It means my father is an Engineer - even I am an Engineer

            Your right, Jesus didn't ask him to worship him.  When he realized that Jesus is Lord and God, he worshiped him but Jesus did not tell him to not worship him.

            Jesus also resides with Men.  He is here now.  When He comes from the sky down to us, then it is for the world to know that Jesus has then come to enact judgment on men. 

            God speaks as "WE" in the Qu'ran.  I guess you are assuming that "We" is God and Mohammad (pbuh).  Either way, people who are Muslims were given different laws.  Those who follow Christ were given different laws.

            Such things like, what we can eat and when we can pray.  He gives us freedom and a personal closeness to God.  From my understanding.  The saying that we aren't to make partners to God is because God asked that those who believe make no distinction between Jesus and God, that we treat them as One in the Same. 

            To make a separation between them is to assign a "partner" to God.  So you right, Jesus is not God's partner, He is God.  When the Qu'ran says that there is no need for God to have a son that God is above this, but yet we are supposed to trust Jesus and know Him as the way and the truth to God then it is only in the Qu'ran that rejects this.

            The Qu'ran says in the fore notes that there aren't any contradictions found in it but from the start there are many.
            Most of them I find in Surah 5. 

            If you believed then you know that Jesus had made it lawful to eat whatever we want but someone came along and absolved what God thru Jesus had said was okay.

            Then the Qu'ran says that God doesn't wish for things to be difficult and it wouldn't be if you followed Jesus.  How much sense can Surah 5 make when in all the holy books God Himself says thou shall not kill, yet this one says the complete oposite.

            Then Surah 6 says that it is unlawful to fight for land, but from what I understand today, that is exactly what they are fighting for... the promised land.  If I am wrong, then forgive me. 

            I don't have a problem with Mohammad (pbuh) in that he said exactly what he needed to say in order for the prophecy to be fulfilled but I do worry that some people have not considered God fully enough though the teachings of Christ to understand that there was never and is no means or justification to murder or war.

            However right some might feel that it is, there are no accidents in war when innocent people are hurt or killed.  If you know there are children living in an area and they are killed by the weapons used to inflict harm to certain parts, then it makes it murder.  No amount of forgiveness can be found with God unless those ways are changed.

            And because the Qu'ran says that there is no intercessor and mediator between man and God then you will not ask for forgiveness from Jesus which totally leaves you to be judged by God Himself and God is pretty upset that some rejected Faith.

            And I do believe that Faith is another name given to Jesus.  Plus the Qu'ran says that Jesus will be witness and Judge and then later says that there is no other judge then God Himself, but you can see that they are One in the Same.

            Anyways,  I am not trying to start an argument. If you do follow the ways of Christ and believe in God then there isn't anything to worry about. 

            Even though the Qu'ran also absolves the traditions of our Forefather, which contradicts what it says about obeying the Prophets. Notably it contradicts Jesus Christ.

              This is quite the discussion you guys are having.  Very interesting.



              I haven't read the Qu'ran but after reading the above I can't help it think that the Qu'ran is saying the same as the Bible here.  If the Qu'ran also absolves the traditions of our Forefather then it's talking about the Levitical Laws or the Laws of Moses that are being absolved. 

              From the Douay-Rheims Bible it says they are absolved in 2 Corinthians 3:11 to 18 too.  Plus a couple of more spots in the New Testament.


              It says basically the same in the King James Bible.

              There were over 600 Levitical Laws.  A couple that come to mind are the dietary laws and an eye for an eye.

              In verse 15 where it says "But even until this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart", their is meaning the religious Jews who still follow the Levitical Laws.

              If these laws are truly absolved in the Qu'ran for Muslims then Christianity and Islam are closer than I thought.  Which I am sure is what Sandra is getting at.  It's just a matter of recognizing the Divinity of Jesus Christ now.

                  Yes, there are a number of similarities in Christianity and Islam, for instance

                  1- Worship only ONE God-Allah
                  2- Jesus (pbuh) is one of the mightiest messengers of Allah
                  3- Muhammad (pbuh) is the last and final messenger of Allah
                  4- Prayers
                  5- Fasting
                  6- Zakat (particular amount of charity per year)
                  7- Dont have pig, pork, swine
                  8- Dont drink alcohol
                  9- Dont steal, rob, loot
                  10- Dont do adultry
                  11- Hijab for Men and Women
                  12- Respect and obey Parents

                  But the problem is most christians and muslims dont follow these guidlines.

                    I agree they are brother religions and brother prophets. The only difference in philosophy is that Islam  doesn't equate even the great prophets with god, god is in a different league.
                    While in Christianity Jesus is equated with god- "me and my father are One."

                    Here I appreciate hindu philosophy which has both of them
                    on namo shiva- I bow to god and shiv ho hum- I am god.
                    All is shiva or all is Allah or all is god- so everything is god including the prophets and man. smile
                    Like the little finger saying I am the body which is truth. smile

                  I have seen the similarities for quite some time Mo.  But with the replies since I posted this I may have been mistaken.  Similarities don't make things the same, just similar.  You know, we can't fit a square peg in a round hole.

                  Maybe Sandra could post that part of the Qu'ran that says the traditions of our Forefather are absolved.  Is it possible that the message was taken wrongly from the start?

                  usmanali81 although we often hear that Islam is a religion of peace I hope you realize that it wasn't spread by peace.  "Although Muhammad died in 632, his followers, led by a series of four caliphs (Arabic: khalifa, "successor") known as the Rightly Guided, continued to spread the message of Islam. Under their command, the Arab armies carried the new faith and leadership from the Arabian Peninsula to the shores of the Mediterranean and to the eastern reaches of Iran. The Arabs conquered Syria, Palestine, and Egypt from the Byzantine empire, while Iraq and Iran, the heart of the Sasanian empire, succumbed to their forces. Here in these lands, Islam fostered the development of a religious, political, and cultural commonwealth and the creation of a global empire."
                  http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/isla/hd_isla.htm

                  That kind of contradicts what you previously said here usmanali81 "The above mentioned verses clearly state that if and only if the oppressors do not let you in peace then stand against them."

                  Oh and by the way usmanali81 you are miss-quoting John 10:29.  It doesn't say what you say in either the Douay-Rheims Bible or the King James Bible.  Also Jesus came to earth as both God and man, so in John 14:28 He was referring to His human nature.  Jesus also suffered and died on the cross in His human nature for the forgiveness of our sins.  As God Jesus is equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God.  Also I think you need to read all of Luke 11 for you to understand what is being said in Luke 11:20.

                    It doesn't say absolved but it does lead me to believe that it was absolved in this way and this is what it says.

                    Surah 5
                    3  Forbidden to you (for food)are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which has been invoked the name of other than Allah; that which has been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by headlong fall, or by being gored...

                    17 In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary.

                    51 Oh you who believe, take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors:  They are but friends and protectors to each other.  And he among you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them.  Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

                    52 Those in whose hearts is a disease- you see how eagerly they run about among them, saying: "we do fear lest a change of fortune bring us disaster."  Ah! perhaps Allah will give (you) victory, or a decision according to His Will.  Then will they repent of the thoughts which they secretly harbored int heir hearts.

                    78  Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary, because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses.

                    87  O you who believe, make not unlawful the good things which Allah ahs made lawful for you, but commit no excess; for Allah loves not those given to excesses.

                    88 Eat of the things which Allah has provided for you, lawful and good; but fear Allah in who you believe. 

                    Surah 3

                    48 And Allah will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel,
                    49 and (appoint him) an Apostle to the Children of Israel (with this message); I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah's leave;  And I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead by Allah's leave; and I declare to you what you eat, and what you store in your houses.  Surely therein is a Sign for you if you did believe.   

                    -so God through Christ sent His message of what was made lawful and Jesus made lawful for us to eat what was before forbidden to eat. 

                    But later, it says that Allah has made forbidden those above that were passed down from Moses that Jesus absolved and made lawful.

              Dear, i respect your thoughts but the problem is you are very much confused about Islam as well as Christianity. I just pointed out the following verses from Bible which testifies that only Allah-God must be worshiped and the whole christian world cry about TRINITY and the irony is that this word is not in any of the Bibles rather its there in Qur'an.

              My Father is Greater than I – John 14:28
              My Father is Greater than all – John 10:29
              … with the finger of God cast out devils … - Luke 11:20


              My point is that, these popes and priests hide the above kind of verses from Bible. When you visit a church on any occassion, they dont read out these type of verses which clearly mentiones without ambiguity that only One God - Allah is to be worshiped rather they quoute and promote those verses which you mentioned with their own interpretations (not by context of the verse). The details which i gave you about the following verses are totally in context by which it becomes clear that even these verses dont justify the concept of TRINITY

              John 10:30, I and my Father are one.
              John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.


              Now the choice is yours, whether you want to follow the pope or the context of the verses of Bibles.

              Regarding fight and war in Qur'an, those who get paid for maligning Islam quote different verses out of context e.g.
              191. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

              Mentioning a verse out of context is the way people use to malign Islam. Read verses 190, 191 alongwith 189,192,193. And if some one want more details then consult the Hadith (Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
              Qur'an-Chapter 2-The Cow, V 189-193
              189. They ask thee concerning the New Moons. Say: They are but signs to mark fixed periods of time in (the affairs of) men, and for Pilgrimage. It is no virtue if ye enter your houses from the back: It is virtue if ye fear Allah. Enter houses through the proper doors: And fear Allah. That ye may prosper.
              190. Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.
              191. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.
              192. But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
              193. And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah. but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.


              The above mentioned verses clearly state that if and only if the oppressors do not let you in peace then stand against them. Actually, what really happend was that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) along with his few believing people were forcefully drove out of their land called Makkah, their properties were looted, believing mothers faced grave humiliation and murdered in front of their loving children and the list of oppression goes on and on, the reason was only that they started believing in only One God-Allah and his final messenger Muhammd (pbuh).

              So, after driving them out, the muslims migrated to Madina and when they returned for Haj(pilgrimage) without any weapons, the infidals of Makkah did'nt let them do so and a treaty called Hudaibia Treaty was agreed upon for a period of 10 years by both parties and muslims returned to Madina without pilgrimage and as per treaty their will be no fight between them for these 10 years.

              Now, during this period when infidals saw the increasing number of muslims they broke the treaty by looting and killing a small group of muslims peacfully resting in a certain place.

              Resultantly, these verses came upon to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Verse 192 and 193 clearly mentiones that if they leave their oppression then they will not be harmed and this fight is just for the sake of justice-its not that Allah-God likes their bloodshed. In these verses Allah is just acting as an Army General, He is just boosting the moral of muslims to fight against tyrany and injustice and just dont fear these oppressors.

                Your right, the Bible doesn't say Trinity.  It says to baptize in the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 

                You would agree that there is a Holy Spirit (Ghost) that was in Christ, yes?  The Qu'ran says Jesus was strengthend with the Holy Spirit and was taught by Allah, and Allah did raise Jesus up to Himself. 
                - this is the Holy Spirit that precedes from God.  The Qu'ran says that Jesus sent to us the clear signs (btw, this is from a gospel left out of the Holy Bible as well if anyone is interested in checking it out.) and made out of clay the figure of a bird and He breathed into it and it went by Allah's leave.

                Now, I do understand that there is only One God.  This has never been a doubt in my mind.  The topic of dispute is to whether or not Jesus is God or not. 

                The Qu'ran says, 45 Behold!  the angels said: O Mary, Allah gives you glad tidings of a Word from Him; his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and (the company of) those nearest to Allah;

                46 He shall speak to people in infancy and in maturity.  And he shall be (of the company) of the rightous.
                47  She said; "O my Lord, How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?  He said: even so; ALlah create what He wills:  when He has decreed a matter, He but says to it, 'Be', and it is. 
                48 And Allah will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel,
                49 and (appoint him) an Apostle to the Children of Israel (with this message); I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah's leave;  ANd I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead by Allah's leave; and I declare to you what you eat, and what you store in your houses.  Surely therein is a Sign for you if you did believe.   

                55 Behold!  Allah said: O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you (of all falsehoods) of those who blaspheme.  I will make those who follow you superior to those who reject Faith, to the Day of Resurrection.  Then shall you all return unto Me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein you dispute. 

                59 The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was. 
                60  The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; so be not of those who doubt.


                Now it also says that there will be a group of us Christians, Jews, Muslims alike who will come together and says, come sons and daughters, mothers, fathers, etc.. and we will be together under God.  There will be peace with us.

                And this I do believe.  I do understand the confusion about Jesus and God however, because Jesus is said to be the Truth (these words being proper nouns and to indicated they are names in the English language at least) Then Faith and Truth are names given to Jesus, as it was said.

                Jesus is the way and the Truth to God.  So I believe in God, I do believe Jesus is the son (not like God had made relations with Mary) but begotten means "taught". 

                And the great mystery of the Unseen, which the Qu'ran says will be revealed to those who believe, is that the Holy Spirit is the Unseen presence of God which precedes from God, through the mouth of Jesus.

                So though it is often confusing, some can be understood with water.

                Water can be a gas, liquid and a solid.  They are still the same, but Allah does manifest in many ways if you see the Signs they are from God and follow that.  When in dispute, I follow the Words through the mouth of Christ that was given direct from God.

                And the Qu'ran says, those who do follow Jesus will have non fear or grief in their hearts because there is no need, we have Faith.

                I believe (1) John 4:1-12

                Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Chris has come in the flesh is from God.  But every every spirit who does not confess Jesus in not from God.  This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that his is coming, and he is already in the world now. 
                You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater then the one who is in the world.  They are from the world.  Therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them.  We are from God.  Anyone who knows God listens to us; anyone who is not from God does not listen to us.  From this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deception.
                7 Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love.  God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sen His One and Only son into the world so that we might live through Him.  Love consist in this: not that we loved God, but He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation of our sins. 

                18 There is no fear in love; instead, prefect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment.  So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love.  We love because He loved us first.


                Anyways, if you don't believe that Jesus is the son of God, or God Himself or more than just a prophet or Apostle, or that the words from His mouth were spoken directly from God, then if you aren't listening to Jesus then you most certainly would be in fear of God.

                Me, I am not fearful of God, why should I be fearful of the One who does love me/us.  I might be a disappointment to Him but He is my Confidence (Faith) and I have Faith, that He will never abandon me because He loves me and I love Him.  big_smile

                  It reminds me of Malachias 4:5-6


                  Malachias is Malachi in the King James Bible.  Because it is in the Old Testament (the Hebrew Bible) I can't help think that there would be a similar verse in the Qu'ran.

                  I truly believe that before the end of this era the people of the book, Jews, Muslims and Christians will come together as One Body in Christ.

                  I do agree matter can be in three states - Solid, Liquid and Gas. But you should realize that if water is present in 3 states… solid, liquid, gas - as ice, water, and vapour, in all the three states - the constituents, the component of water is the same... H2O.  Even if its ice,  the constituent and component is H2O -  Even when it is water it is H2O - Even when it is vapour it is H2O - Even when it is ice… even when it is gas or liquid, it is H2O - That’s very important. Now lets analyze the example you gave of ‘trinity’ - Father, son and holy ghost. In 3 forms if you say… for the sake of argument, I agree - but are the constituents of all these three things, - father, son, that is Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and holy ghost, the same? We know very well that human beings have got flesh and bones - A spirit and God Almighty have got no flesh and bones. Human beings require to eat -God Almighty does not require to eat. And the same message Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) gave - Its mentioned in the Gospel of Luke Ch. No.24, V.No.39 to 43. That, ‘Behold my hands and feet - Its I myself. Handle me and see - that a spirit has got  no flesh and bones as you see me have. And he gave his hands and feet - And they were overjoyed. To prove what? that he was not a spirit - he was not God Almighty. And the verse continues ‘Do you have meat to eat’ and the next verse says that he ate broiled fish and honey comb.  To prove what? - that he was God? To prove that he was not God! Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) said, ‘A spirit has no flesh and bones, as I have proving that he was not a spirit - he was not Almighty God.

                  DONT GO TO EXTREMES

                  The rank hatred of the Jews which lead them to slander Jesus and his mother is bad, and the over infatuation of the Christians for Christ is also bad. Muhummed (pbuh) the Messenger of God condemned both these extremes, and elevated Jesus (pbuh) to his true status, as the Messiah, a great prophet and reformer. Love him, respect him, revere him, follow him; but do not worship him! For worship is due to God alone, the Father in heaven: ALLAH!'
                  This is true glorification — for,
                  "He shall glorify me!"  John 16:14
                  Historically, morally and prophetically, Muhummed (pbuh) the last and Final Messenger of God, "The Spirit of Truth," is the only one to guide mankind into all truth. He is pre-eminently the Natural Successor to Christ.

                  O People of the Book! Do not go to extremes in your religion: nor say of Allah anything but the truth.
                  Verily, Christ1 Jesus the son of Mary was no more than a messenger of Allah, and His Word which he bestowed upon Mary, And a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and his messengers.
                  Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: For your Allah is One God: Glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all things in the heavens and the earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
                  (SURA NISAA) Holy Qur’ân 4:171

                  The above mentioned verse of the Qur’an mentions the word TRINITY. No where in all of the Bibles you will find this word smile. In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus (pbuh) himself says, “I am God” or where he says, “worship me”.

                  Even now if you dont agree with the myth of TRINITY exposed then
                  read further. If you go ahead in the Gospel of John, Ch. No.17, Verse No.21, it says that, Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) said that… ‘Ye all of them are one - My father in me, and I in thee, we all are one’. ‘Does it mean that God Almighty, is in Jesus Christ… and Jesus Christ is in all his 12 disciples. So there will be 14 gods - Jesus Christ, God Almighty, and 12 disciples. The same ‘ONE’ is used there, and here. If you go to the source, the same word is used - If you go to the Greek… the same word is used - So does it mean you have 14 gods? And among those disiples, Judas was a traitor -. Even he is God? Thomas doubted Jesus Christ (peace be upon him )  - is he God? - ‘Peter’ - Jesus Christ says … ‘is satanic?’-  Is he also God? No, - all of them, God Almighty - Jesus Christ and the  Apostles, are one in purpose - they are  same.

                  At last, the quotations which you quoted from Qur'an for Jesus (pbuh) were again out of context. Actually, Allah is telling the story of Jesus (pbuh) and He is mentioning Jesus (pbuh) as the way and truth for the people of that time - the children of Israel.

                  So please, its a humble request, not to quote verses from Qur'an and even Bible out of context as the popes and missionaries do.

      Whomever he was, I just wish people would remember he was Jewish.
      Oh, and...Jesus was the guy about whom the Catholic kids in the Bronx would remind the Jewish kids every Easter. Not so long ago (and sometimes still), these groups of "religious" youths achieved their pious intentions by crossing over the big boulevard from their predominantly Catholic neighborhood into the predominantly Jewish neighborhood to search out lone Jewish kids to beat the crap out of. They justified their cruelty based on lies they'd been taught in catechism class.

      Is that supposed to be some sort of tough love? Is that truly what Jesus intended in his name? Well, maybe...crusaders, inquisitors, the list goes on. You know the saying, "It's better than getting stuck in the eye (or ass) with a red hot poker." Where do you think that originated? You guessed it...that was one of the ol' time methods of the inquisition to convince someone to join their religious gang.

      I believe the Bible and in Jesus and God, but I try not to get too much into the details such as evolution vs. creationism. Christianity is more about a lifestyle, not just a religion. If you believe if God, you'll go to Heaven. If you reject him or his son, then you will go to hell. That is simply what I believe. I know there are a lot of hypocrites out there and people who give Christianity a bad name, but as a whole the concept of Christianity is really bettering yourself. For example, listening to Christian music is more positive than listening to hard core rap, heavy metal, or other stuff like that. It will put you in a better mood. That isn't my opinion that is a fact. Another reason to believe in God is "A Bet for God". This "bet" states that you will lose nothing by believing in God and being wrong, but you lose everything if you don't believe in God and you are wrong.

He is Ying, without him there is no Yang.  He is your excuse.. He is your reason.. He takes blame.. fault..he gives great joy... he is the defintion of blind faith and faithlessness when times are sad.  He is everything YOU need him to be when you need him to be it.  He is everything that is wrong..and he is everything that is right.

      He has been the reason for great wars.. and even greater love.  He answers questions, listens to prayers.. He listens to YOU when no one else does. He is a legend.. he is a man, a prophet, an empath.....He never leaves you no matter how much blame you place upon him and he steps back when you need to be on your own.  He is a foundation for all who would have faith that he can hold them up when they are falling.

      He came into this world ... he chose his path.. Just as you choose yours this day.....  Choose wisely.

      The Light Of God Almighty Within
      "According to Buddhism, all beings are imbued with a spark of inner divine light.... The Jewish mystics use similar words when they speak of the inner spark or the spark of God. The Koran, referring to man, talks about the little candle flame burning in a niche in the wall of God's temple. Almost inevitably a spiritual search becomes a search for divine or sacred light. By cultivating our inner core, we search for this light in ourselves as well as the divine." - Lama Surya Das

    Basically, as the story goes, god sent himself on a suicide mission to earth to die as a sacrifice to himself in order to convince himself to change how he dealt with humanity so that they wouldn't have to continue slaughtering animals and burning their carcases on alters because, in the beginning, a man that was made from dirt, and a woman that was made from the mans rib, were decieved by a talking snake into eating a magical piece of forbidden fruit that caused them to realize that they were in their birthday suits. This angered god, so he cursed them both, the woman with great pain during childbirth, and the man with the burden of harsh labor in order to scratch a living, and every generation after that would carry this curse. The only way to atone for this fruit eating transgression is the shedding of blood because, after all, their can be no remission of sin without the shedding of blood; right? Jesus served the capacity of being the final sacrifice which would absolve us all of this "original sin"; but . . . the only way for this atonement to count is for the individual to believe that this man, was born of a virgin, walked on water, turned water into wine, fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, healed blind, sick and lame people, and most importantly of all, that he rose from the dead after his spirit retured to his body from being in a place called hell (which is in the "belly of the earth") for three days.

    I agree Junkster, Jesus is a figment of someone's imagination; but, on your second point, "god-less" people are no less moral than "godly" people, statistically speaking. If godly people claim that the reason why they don't murder, rape and steal is because of god, then they are sad individuals indeed. It is just part of human nature to be kind to each other; you know, the social contract. And yes, I do think this can be explained by natural selection. You will notice that in the animal kingdom, members of the same species will not indiscriminately kill each other for no good reason. You will notice that they cooperate with one another to ensure the survival of the group. There are always bad apples though.

    Bottom line, there are good Christians and bad Christians, and there are good non-believers and bad non-believers. Even if it were true that non-believers as a whole were more immoral than believers, this would not prove the existence of a god or the validity of a religion.

    Someone rightly related Him as Love. He intercepted a religious move to cause a murder by a gross number of religious men who play by the laws and keep them not in their privacy. They caught a woman right in the very act of adultery and preferred her stoned to dead. What an amazing true sense of judgement centered on love by Jesus as He asked for anyone who is free of the same offence to cast his stone on her. The Lord of Hosts saw their very hearts and deeds. Wait a minute, where was the man who had sex with her? Amazingly none could cast a stone on her and they all walked away in shame. What a funny world of religious hypocrites. No wonder he was against religion and it's associated politics at several times displayed by these folks whose hearts are far from God, Whom they tend to know and worship. I love Jesus.

    He was a Jewish prophet, who apparently has a different meaning, astrological sign, and middle name to every single person I talk to.

    I hold all responsibility for what goes on in my life, and no one else shall take the blame and/or fault for what I do.  The only miracles, revelations or epiphanies I experience are through my own organic brain.

    I mean, do I really think God has time for a petty human like me? Surely not.  I'm an ant, and nothing more.  Yet, for some reason, I am proud to be a small organism in the lenses of space and time.

They awesome miracles beyond the comprehension of men made his listeners and followers believed him more than just a mere man or a prophet. All these miracles happened and were recorded, now a suppossed history. Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8)

      John 6:26
      Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

      He marvelled their various understanding, even the unbelievers then were amazed and believed him thereafter.

    I got this really good sermon yesterday.  It was interesting.  Check it out if you like. 

    It talks about Exodus up to Jesus' crux. and those famous last words, "My God, My God, why have your forsaken Me?" 

    Never would have put it together with Psalms and Jesus reciting a song to those watching Him die and this guy is also talking about how Jesus is called Emanuel, Jesus, Josephus etc...

    http://messageshare.com/messageShare.as … mberID=273

    I had it in my head that while Jesus was a man, he was a prophet.  And yes, God's begotten son.  I found it fascinating at the moment when I got this link because I was reading from the Qu'ran ( despite what some Muslims will tell you), it does say that Jesus was raised by God and given all the wisdom and gospel etc...

    It also says that Allah hates and will not forgive those who make partners to Allah, however it also says that Jesus is to be trusted.

    In the Bible God says that we are to make no distinction between He and God... So if Jesus is to be Trusted, and God says we make no distinction between them then there no one who believes that Jesus is God would be making partners of them because they are one in the same.

    Course reading further into Surah 5, it says that Christians are to be hated. Which is sorta laughable because it is a contradiction and the Qu'ran claims there aren't any. ( I have reason to believe Surah 5 is false)   

    It also says that those who follow Jesus are closest to Allah.. anyways before I ramble on much more.  I thought the significance of the sermon was right on in that Jesus is called a lot of things.

    So in Revelations ( I believe) it says that Jesus will be given a new name.  And from what I am reading in the Qu'ran, it seems as though Jesus' new name is Faith. 

    And so at the moment of Jesus' crux, it was done and Jesus was fully God.  From another hub I wrote, I said that if someone says that Islam is the true religion, although Islam means peace, it sounds like it means "Faith in God". 

    Anyways, just some thoughts, I hope I don't offend anyone but then again it is a religion forum so pretty much everything is offensive at some point.

    I think what is important is not who Jesus Christ is to me, but who Jesus Christ is to humanity. Jesus Christ is the expression of God's perfect love for humanity, of which I am a part. As humanity has become deformed through mankind's falling away from God his creator, in rebellion, through faithlessness, and has lost his human integrity and divine dignity, being a partaker of God's divine nature from creation, God has come down to restore humanity and mankind to his original divine nature. This demonstration of unqualified faith in man, His creature, by God, expresses His unfailing love, which Jesus Christ represents to me and all humanity - the meaning of  life.

    I believe that Jesus Christ is the only son of the only Living God. I believe he was sent by the Father, born of a virgin, willingly gave His life, was buried and rose from the dead after three days and reigns forever, so that every person has the opportunity to be reconciled to God. Believing on Him is the only way that anyone can be reconciled and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast".
    Ephesians 2: 8-9.

    If mankind realized that it is not about us, it's about the glory of God, we would have a perfect world. Of course that will never happen and God never intended it to. With all the intelligence and advancements of humankind, which I champion wholeheartedly, God still sees us as we see plankton or amoeba.

    Having said this, I've never truly understood why atheists and agnostics are always so bitter. They see religion, especially Christianity, as something vile and inhuman, and cannot conceive of an educated, enlightened society buying in to these "fairy tails." Most Christians, and true Christians especially, don't try to force their faith on anyone. They will share their beliefs with you and hope you will accept them. But a true Christian leaves it up to you, just as Christ did. We don't strap bombs to our bodies and blow up innocent people to induce infidels to convert.

    Even though the United States of America, the greatest country in the history of the world, was founded on Christianity, some feel we should apologize for our greatness. How does the world think we got to be as great as we are? Well, I know what a lot of the world thinks, but the truth is, it is primarily because of our Christian beliefs and foundation. Now, if that sounds naive to some people, or offends some people, I don't apologize. Neither did Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, etc. I suppose they were uninformed, uneducated, unenlightened men as well.

    If atheists and agnostics don't believe in anything, which is certainly their right in this country, how do they lead happy, productive lives, knowing that even a long, eventful life is still but a fleeting moment in eternity? Why not put their faith in Christ? If all us subjugated, ignorant, mind numbed robots are right, they will have the perfect eternal life with happiness beyond comprehension. If we're wrong, they've lost nothing. Sound like a win - win to me.

    I guess I was wrong.  Yeah Sandra it doesn't really make sense that God would give the laws to Moses, absolve the law because Jesus Christ fulfilled the law, then again affirm the laws for Muslims 600 years later, does it?

    The thing about it some of the Levitical Laws do not make any sense in these days.  You know, an eye for an eye, stoning adulterers or even some of the dietary laws.  Religious Jews can't even follow some of the laws now.

    Those laws given to Moses were for obedience, if obeyed God would prove He was with them to other people at that time.  It was to prove God, not them.

        Well usmanali81 which Levitical Laws have Muslims decided to keep and which ones do they choose not to.  Like religious Jews, Muslims can't follow some of the laws now either.  You know, regarding an eye for an eye in most countries if someone commits a crime against you and you retaliate you are also committing a crime.  Surely to goodness adulterers don't still get stoned in Muslim countries, do they?  That would be against the law in a Christian country.  It just does not make sense that God would establish the laws to prove that He was with the Israelites back then, fulfill the law through Jesus Christ, then re-establish the law again for a later group in the sixth century AD.  Have you heard of Arianism?

    Jesus is a greek translation of somebodys name. The answer to the question depends on the context. In the context of me as a 43 year old man who has investigated christian history and made some personal conclusions, the answer is that Jesus is a revision of several saviour - prophet archetypes which were prevelant in the middle east and mediteranean area  a couple of thousand years ago.

    An amalgam of Greek/Egyptian hero mythology and personification of astronomical changes producing a profound change in the psychology of people who take part in his worship.

    For me personally Jesus was a starting point for my own personal journey of discovery which has led me through buddhism,new age ideas,and paganism. Jesus is essentially a pagan god wriapped up in revolutionary guise to suit a people who were under occupation and looking for a revolutionary leader.

    There is historical, non biblical evidence that the human Jesus did exist during the time frame described in the bibles (I use the plural because many versions have been created.  There is no such thing as "The" bible).  Similar myths regarding virgin birth, tortuous death and resurrection pre-date the biblical one.  The question of who is Jesus to you is a good one.  Many of the teachings help the believers to realize the full potential of their spiritual journey.  On the other hand there is that nagging problem of Adolph Hitler's love of passion plays.
