Know Islam, Know Paradise

Of Religion, Tolerance, Bigotry and Double Standards By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman

In the last article I wrote, I stated that I might write again this December if something important comes up.

Click here for previous session       A brief summary, then, of these key points: 1.  Jesus differentiated between himself and God. On one hand he exalted God, but on the other hand he humbled himself before his Creator in worship. To his followers, Jesus defined himself as nothing more than a man and a prophet. 2.  The disciples agreed, and acknowledged Jesus Christ as a man and a prophet. 3.  The only New Testament verse (1 Timothy 3:16) held to support the doctrine of Incarnation is corrupt—even more, if it can be imagined, than the widely discredited John 1:14 and Colossians 2:9. 4.  The Bible describes the life and history of Jesus in terms which can only be associated with humanity. 5. …

Practical considerations arise. Questions like, “What was Jesus’ religion?” and “If Jesus lived, preached, and completed his ministry faithful to the religious laws of his time, why are those who claim to follow in his name not living by his example?” After all, the Acts of the Apostles documents how strict the practices were among the early followers of Christ. Peter’s avoidance of unclean animals is documented in Acts 10:14, the emphasis upon circumcision is…
