YAHWEH, THE DECEIVER.
20. The LORD asked, ‘Who will deceive Ahab so that he will go and be killed at Ramoth?’ Some of the angels said one thing, and others said something else,
21. until a spirit stepped forward, approached the LORD, and said, ‘I will deceive him.’
22. ‘How?’ the LORD asked. The spirit replied, ‘I will go and make all of Ahab’s prophets tell lies.’ The LORD said, ‘Go and deceive him. You will succeed.’ ”
1king 22:20-22 GNB
Note: go and deceive him. Why would Yahweh command a spirit to deceive people?
This is just a tip of the ice berg and a start off on the right foot.
We read in several places in the Bibles how Yahweh caused people to believe the untruth and how Yahweh act with artful deceit. This are illogical and ill-befitting attributes of the so called God.
We read in the book of Ezekiel how Yahweh deceived and destroy a prophet
And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and i will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
Ezekiel 14:9 KJV
Any seeming deception in a statement is costly, not only in the expense of the advertising but in the detrimental effect produced upon the customer (Christians) who does not believe he/she has been misled.
Thus, we invite our Christian folks to Islam “the religion of Christ” some turn deaf ears while some sees the truth by the will of him who owns the world (Allah).
We read in the book of prophet Jeremiah where he cried unto Yahweh after been deceived.
O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
Jeremiah 20:7 KJV
Why would Yahweh deceive his prophet when he knew people will mock him? Or is Yahweh not all knowing?
More over, Any deception in the course of propagating religion is indeed nothing else but a lie turned to practice, and falsehood passing from words into things.
We read in the book of prophet Isaiah when someone passes a warning to king Hezekiah king of Judah, that king Hezekiah should not allow Yahweh to deceive him. This shows Yahweh is known for his act of deceit. Now below is a question for a sincere and a truth seeker.
Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.
Does Yahweh deserve to be the one and only true God if he deceives his creatures?
It is absolutely senseless and witless for a Creator to deceive his creatures
In conclusion, we saw a similar text of The text in the book of Isaiah 37:10 in the book of Ezekiel, and this call for the below question
1. who was deceive by Yahweh, Isaiah or Ezekiel?
2. Which is the original text amongst the two?
shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.
2 Kings 19:10
Our Christian friends needs liberation and enlightenment, may Allah show them the way, and may he Azzawajal continue to guide the Muslim ummah.
