Christians are special beings. They deny the truth but embrace the lie, so much, that their hypocrisy stinks to the skies. They are deaf, dumb and blind in reference to the words of ALlah in Qura’n 2:18. Deaf that they cannot hear the words of guidance, dumb that they cannot utter that which would benefit them, so blind that they are in total darkness and deviation. They are not without these organs but their hypocrisy has rendered them useless. Allah says, أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَا أَوْ آذَانٌ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَٰكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ Have they not traveled in the land, and have they hearts wherewith to feel and ears wherewith to hear? For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind. (Quran 22:46)
The blind person is not the one whose eyes cannot see, rather, the one who lacks insight. Even if the physical eyes are sound, they still cannot see nor understand the lesson.
Yesterday, during ACADIP 25th Anniversary held at ICC, Ibadan, Oyo State, a Christian went on the stage to ask questions. He grew from asking questions to attacking Islam. He ridiculed the idea that Muslims are the slaves of God and must be inferior to them who are the sons of God. Mallam Yusuf Adepoju, a scholar of Comparative Da’wah asked him to open to the book of Romans chapter 6 verses 20 to 22 which reads,
“For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life” (Romans 6:20-22)
When Mallam Yusuf, after reading those verses, asked him to choose between being the slave of God or not a slave of God at the expense of contradicting the Bible, he went numb. This is what we call a permanent state of shut up. He had nothing to say, it was the truth staring at him, he couldn’t turn away and he would not accept. Such is the affair of a hypocrite.
Christians ignore the Bible for their whims and desires. Ironically, when they work for the government, they accept to be called Civil Servants but to be a slave of God is difficult even when the Bible says that.
As a Christian, I had heard our Pastor say it many times that we are Sons of God and, unlike slaves, we can do whatever we want on earth, command whatever though still limited to what is good and what is bad. It is this erroneous teaching that led to the idiocy of making declarations, decreeing and commanding in the name of prayers. They are sons of God, the earth is theirs, so, they can command and declare but, for their biological parents, they calmly and humbly request, is God not more deserving?
It is important that Christians know, admit and accept the fact that they are slaves of God and nothing more. Why are they not slaves of God? if God decrees a thing, would they say Nay!?. What if HE forbids a thing, would they command it to be? If God intends to take their souls, would they tell God that they have appointed a time to die for themselves?
For Muslims who have accepted the reality, that they are slaves of God and Christians who deny, are we not all subject to natural phenomena? If truly Christians are sons of God and not slaves, only the slaves of God should go hungry, get sick and die.
“But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life“. since this is the reward for being slaves of God, Muslims are lucky and Christians should look into Islam for a proper understanding of slavery to God.
