SmarteePanz: Surah 11:63 probably the best verse revealing a mistake. (Allah has the right amount of perdition in store for non believers, and you think Allah isn't doing enough)
Surah 29:46 commands to only argue in the nicest ways, beheading is nice?
Surah 72:13 let them error.. Allah has destined the non believers to wander.

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: Prophesies in The Gospel of Jesus” by
Disciple Barnabas:

"...And though I have been innocent in the world,
since men have called me "God," and "Son of God,"
God, in order that I be not mocked of the demons
on the day of judgment, hath willed that I be
mocked of men in this world by the death of
Judas, making all men to believe that I died upon
the cross. And this mocking shall continue until
the advent of Mohammed, the messenger of God,
who, when he shall come, shall reveal this
deception to those who believe in God's
law."(Barnabas:220)

"....Wherefore, when the messenger of God shall
come, he shall come to cleanse away all wherewith
the ungodly have contaminated my book."
(Barnabas:124)
" ...After those years shall the angel Gabriel come
into hell, and shall hear them say: "O Mohammed,
where are thy promises made to us, saying that
those who have thy faith shall not abide in hell for

evermore?" 'Then the angel of God shall return to
paradise, and having approached with reverence
the messenger of God shall narrate him what he
hath heard.' 'Then shall his messenger speak to
God and say: "Lord my God, remember the
promise made to me thy servant, concerning them
that have received my faith, that they shall not
abide for evermore in hell." 'God shall answere:
"Ask what thou wilt, O my friend, for I will give
thee all that thou askest." (Barnabas:136)

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: Jesus was not Crucified, but Raised Up!

The contradictions in the crucifiction and
resurrection claims have also been clarified in
“Gospel of Jesus” according to disciple Barnabas:
a. "..Then God seeing danger of his servant,
commanded Gabriel, Michael, Rafael and
Uriel, his ministers, to take Jesus out of the
world. The holy angels came and took Jesus
out by the window that looketh toward the
South..." (Brnabas:215).

b. "Judas truly did nothing else but cry out:
'God, why hast thou forsaken me, seeing the
malefactor hath escaped and I die unjustly?'
Verily I say that the voice, the face, and the
person of Judas were so alike to Jesus, that
his disciples and believers entirely believed
that he was Jesus; wherefore some departed
from the doctrine of Jesus; believing that
Jesus had been a false prophet, and that by
art magic he had done the miracles which he
did: for Jesus had said that he should not
die till near the end of the world; for that at that time he should be taken away from the
world."(Brnabas:217)

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: Trinity- Approved as Official Doctrine of
Empire:

Emperor Constantine brought a greater part of
Europe under his rule and secondly he began to
support the Christians without accepting
Christianity.

In the Imperial Palace itself the
controversy was raging not less fiercely. It appears
that perhaps the Queen Mother was inclined
towards Pauline Christianity while his sister
Princess Constantina was a disciple of Arius. The
Emperor was wavering between the two faiths. As
an administrator he was interested only in uniting
all the Christ ians within one Church


So the
Emperor anxious to maintain peace in the newly
unified Europe had to intervene.
Council of Nicea 325 C.E:
In 325 C.E a meeting of all denominations of
Christianity was called at Nicea (Now Isnik, a
village).

Accordingly he threw his weight
behind Athanasius and banished Arius from the
realm. Thus the belief of Trinity became the
official religion of the Roman Empire.

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: Jesus Christ in The Bible & Trinity

Trinity:
The idea of Trinity was started by Paul but it was
given a final shape by Athanesius in about 325C.E.
Trinity is not mentioned in Bible. The Catholic
Encyclopedia says "The Trinity is the term
employed to signify the central doctrine of
Christian religion ... in the unity of Godhead
there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and
the Holy Spirit, these three Persons being truly
distinct one from another. Thus in the words of
Athanasian Creed; the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are
not three but one God.”
This doctrine was not clearly grasped even by
Athanasius. He says at another place that
whenever he forced his understanding to mediate
on the divinity of Jesus his toilsome and
unavailing efforts recoil on themselves, that the
more he wrote the less capable was he of
expressing his thoughts. This confusion is
explained away as "Mystery", yet the Bible says
"God is not the author of confusion"
(1Corinthians;14:33)

“True ‘Gospel of Jesus’ by his disciple and apostle
Barnabas; Christ was a new prophet sent by God to
the world. “According to the, apostle of Jesus the
Nazarene, called Christ, to all them that dwell
upon the earth desireth peace and consolation.
Dearly beloved the great and wonderful God hath
during these past days visited us by his prophet
Jesus Christ in great mercy of teaching and
miracles, by reason whereof many, being deceived
of Satan, under presence of piety, are preaching
most impious doctrine, calling Jesus son of God,
repudiating the circumcision ordained of God for
ever, and permitting every unclean meat: among
whom also Paul hath been deceived, whereof I
speak not without grief; for which cause I am
writing that truth which I have seen and heard, in
the intercourse that I have had with Jesus, in
order that ye may be saved, and not be deceived of
Satan and perish in the judgment of God.

Therefore beware of every one that preacheth unto
you new doctrine contrary to that which I write,
that ye may be saved eternally. The great God bewith you and guard you from Satan and from every
evil. Amen”.(Barnabas: Opening).
"Jesus, having received this vision, and knowing
that he was a prophet sent to the house of Israel,
revealed to Mary his mother, telling her that he
needs must suffer great persecution for the honor
of God, and that he couldn't any longer abide with
her to serve her." (Barnabas:10)
"And when he had said this, the crowed drew high,
and when they knew him they began to cry out: '
Welcome to thee, O our God!' and they began to do
him reverence, as unto God. Whereupon Jesus
gave a great groan and said: ' Get ye from before
me, O mad men, for I fear lest the earth should
open and devour me with you for your abominable
words!' Whereupon the people were filled with
terror and began to weep."(Barnabas:92)

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: What Does 'Non-Trinitarian' Mean?

Church of the Great God is "non-Trinitarian." Simply put, this means that we do not believe in the traditional, man-made hypothesis of a triune God (that is, "one God in three co-equal Persons". The Trinity doctrine cannot be found in the Bible, as it was patched together by Catholic theologians hundreds of years after the deaths of the apostles and the completion of Scripture. Instead, Trinitarianism is a mixture of Jewish, Greek, and Roman philosophies, loosely based on a handful of Bible verses snatched out of context or interpolated into the text.

Scripture reveals God the Father to be the Supreme Deity, and the Son, Jesus Christ, while certainly a divine Being, is in all things submissive to the Father (see John 6:38; 14:28). The Holy Spirit is the presence and power of God, the essence of the divine mind that both Father and Son use to do Their work. It is not a separate being, anymore than the "spirit in man" (I Corinthians 2:11) is a separate being inside each human.

Although this is astounding when one hears it for the first time, it is fully borne out in God's Word. Romans 8:29 tells us that the Father is conforming saints "to the image of His Son, that He [Jesus Christ] might be the firstborn among many brethren." Notice that He is the firstborn, indicating preeminence over others, not the "only-born." Likewise, Colossians 1:18 identifies Jesus Christ as "the firstborn from the dead," meaning that others will also be rise "from the dead" into the God Family when resurrected at Jesus Christ's return (see Revelation 1:5). Additionally, Ephesians 3:14-15 says that "the whole family in heaven and earth is named" after the Father. The saints have taken on the Family name, showing that they are already part of that Family Kingdom (Colossians 1:13), even though they will not be complete until they are transformed into spirit beings (compare John 3:3-8; I Corinthians 15:50).

By contrast, the Bible never mentions the Holy Spirit in the context of a family relationship, nor of being a member of the God Family. Scripture speaks of the Spirit as the power (Acts 1:8) or mind of God, the power of love and of a sound mind (II Timothy 1:7). Since it emanates from God, it can thus be said to be "poured out" (Titus 3:5-6), "breathed" (John 20:22), and used to "fill" (Acts 2:4) and "anoint" (Acts 10:38).

Finally, God's Word also reveals that the Father and the Son are not equal. In John 14:28, Jesus states unambiguously, "My Father is greater than I." Similarly, Paul tells the congregation in Corinth that "the head of Christ is God" (I Corinthians 11:3), clearly declaring that God and Christ are not equal. They are both divine—both God Beings—but fulfill very different roles.

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: THE QURAN ON THE ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE

Description: A Scientific and Quranic explanation about the creation of the universe.

The science of modern cosmology, observational and theoretical, clearly indicates that, at one point in time, the whole universe was nothing but a cloud of ‘smoke’ (i.e. an opaque highly dense and hot gaseous composition).[1] This is one of the undisputed principles of standard modern cosmology. Scientists now can observe new stars forming out of the remnants of that ‘smoke’ (see figures 1 and 2).

he illuminating stars we see at night were, just as was the whole universe, in that ‘smoke’ material. God has said in the Quran:

“Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke...” (Quran 41:11)

Because the earth and the heavens above (the sun, the moon, stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) have been formed from this same ‘smoke,’ we conclude that the earth and the heavens were one connected entity. Then out of this homogeneous ‘smoke,’ they formed and separated from each other. God has said in the Quran:

“Have not those who disbelieved known that the heavens and the earth were one connected entity, then We separated them?...” (Quran 21:30)

Dr. Alfred Kroner is one of the world’s renowned geologists. He is Professor of Geology and the Chairman of the Department of Geology at the Institute of Geosciences, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. He said: “Thinking where Muhammad came from . . . I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years, with very complicated and advanced technological methods, that this is the case.”[2] (To view the RealPlayer video of this comment click here). Also he said: “Somebody who did not know something about nuclear physics fourteen hundred years ago could not, I think, be in a position to find out from his own mind, for instance, that the earth and the heavens had the same origin.”[3] (View the RealPlayer video of this

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: ATHEISM (PART 1 OF 2): DENYING THE UNDENIABLE


Atheists might assert that they don’t acknowledge the existence of God, but the view of some Christians and all Muslims is that at some level even the confirmed Atheist affirms God’s presence. The innate but neglected awareness of God typically surfaces in Atheist consciousness only in times of severe stress, as exemplified by the World War II quote “There are no Atheists in a fox-hole.”[1]

Undeniably there are times -- whether during the agonizing days of a lingering illness, the seemingly eternal moments of a violent and humiliating mugging, or the split second of anticipating the impact of an imminent car crash -- when all mankind recognize the reality of human fragility and the lack of human control over destiny. Who does a person beseech for help in such circumstances other than The Creator? Such moments of desperation should remind every person, from the religious scholar to the professed Atheist, of the dependence of mankind upon a reality far greater than our own meager human selves. A reality far greater in knowledge, power, will, majesty and glory.

In such moments of distress, when all human efforts have failed and no element of material existence can be foreseen to provide comfort or rescue, Whom else will a person instinctively call upon? In such moments of trial, how many stress-induced appeals are made to God, complete with promises of lifelong fidelity? Yet, how few are kept?

No doubt, the day of greatest affliction will be the Day of Judgement, and a person would be unfortunate to be in the position of acknowledging the existence of God for the first time on that day. The English poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, spoke of the irony of the distressed human appeal in The Cry of the Human:

“And lips say “God be pitiful,”

Who ne’er said, “God be praised.”

The thoughtful Atheist, full of skepticism but fearful of the possibility of the existence of God and a Day of Judgement, may wish to consider the ‘prayer of the skeptic,’ as follows:

“O Lord--if there is a Lord,

Save my soul--if I have a soul.”[2]

In the face of skepticism blocking belief, how can a person go wrong with the above prayer? Should Atheists remain upon disbelief, they will be no worse off than before; should belief follow a sincere appeal, Thomas Jefferson had the following to say:

“If you find reason to believe there is a God, a consciousness that you are acting under His eye, and that He approves you, will be a vast additional incitement; if that there be a future state, the hope of a happy existence in that increases the appetite to deserve it…”[3]

The suggestion can be made that if an individual doesn’t see the evidence of God in the magnificence of His creation, they would be well advised to take another look. As Francis Bacon is noted to have commented, “I had rather believe all the fables in the legend, and the Talmud, and the alcoran (i.e. the Quran), than that this universal frame is without a mind.”[4] He went on to comment, “God never wrought miracle to convince atheism, because his ordinary works convince it.”[5] Worthy of contemplation is the fact that even the lowest elements of God’s creation, though perhaps ordinary works in His terms, are miracles in ours. Take the example of as tiny an animal as a spider. Does anybody really believe that such an extraordinarily intricate creature evolved from primordial soup? Just one of these little miracles can produce up to seven different kinds of silk, some as thin as the wavelength of visible light, but stronger than steel. Silks range from the elastic, sticky strands for entrapment to the non-adhesive drag-lines and frame threads, to the silk for wrapping prey, making the egg sac, etc. The spider can, on demand, not only manufacture its personal choice of the seven silks, but reabsorb, breakdown and remanufacture--self-recycling from the component elements. And this is only one small facet of the miracle of the spider.

And yet, mankind elevates itself to the heights of arrogance. A moment’s reflection should incline human hearts to humility. Look at a building and a person thinks of the architect, at a sculpture and a person instantly comprehends an artist. But examine the elegant intricacies of creation, from the complexity and balance of nuclear particle physics to the uncharted vastness of space, and a person conceives of…nothing? Surrounded by a world of synchronous complexities, we as mankind cannot even assemble the wing of a gnat. And yet the entire World and all the Universe exists in a state of perfect orchestration as a product of random accidents which molded cosmic chaos into balanced perfection? Some vote chance, others, creation.

JohnB85: There are so many problems with this that I hardly know where to start.

You say: 'Atheists might assert that they don’t acknowledge the existence of God, but the view of some Christians and all Muslims is that at some level even the confirmed Atheist affirms God’s presence. The innate but neglected awareness of God typically surfaces in Atheist consciousness only in times of severe stress, as exemplified by the World War II quote “There are no Atheists in a fox-hole.”[1]'

First, for this generalization to be true, you would have to defend that every atheist thinks this way. Obviously you cannot, so I think we can dismiss this outright.

But let's proceed further anyway: even if a single atheist suddenly put aside his/her skepticism in a time of extreme distress, then I could easily say the distressful situation may not put that individual in a rational state of mind. I personally have never met a single human being who has shown that they can act rationally in every moment of their lives. We're all emotional and we just have to be circumspect about our emotional, and often wishful, thinking.

Third, you have not defined "God" here. While this term may be entirely self-evident to you, there are a number of deistic frameworks (i.e. pantheism, deism, etc.) that people ascribe to. Atheism is not a monolith either. For example, I personally doubt the existence of the Abrahamic god (or any "interventionist" god), but I'm open to the idea that there might be some deistic mind, or perhaps the universe is more "instinctual." Thomas Jefferson, whom you quoted, appears to have been a deist. So, I hope you are aware of that.

Anyways, that's about all the time I have to comment. But I think we can dismiss your argument.

dr_mohamed_mahmoud: A History of God
By
Karen Armstrong

4 - Trinity: The Christian God
In about 320 a fierce theological passion had seized the churches of Egypt, Syria and Asia Minor. Sailors and travellers were singing versions
of popular ditties that proclaimed that the Father alone was true God, inaccessible and unique, but that the Son was neither coeternal nor
uncreated, since he received life and being from the Father. We hear of a bath-attendant who harangued the bathers, insisting that the Son came
from nothingness, of a money-changer who, when asked for the exchange rate, prefaced his reply with a long disquisition on the distinction
between the created order and the uncreated God and of a baker who informed his customer that the Father was greater than the Son. People
were discussing these abstruse questions with the same enthusiasm as they discuss football today. {1} The controversy had been kindled by
Arius, a charismatic and handsome presbyter of Alexandria, who had a soft, impressive voice and a strikingly melancholy face. He had issued a
challenge which his Bishop Alexander found impossible to ignore but even more difficult to rebut: how could Jesus Christ have been God in
the same way as God the Father? Arius was not denying the divinity of Christ; indeed, he called Jesus 'strong God' and 'full God' {2} but he
argued that it was blasphemous to think that he was divine by nature: Jesus had specifically said that the Father was greater than he. Alexander
and his brilliant young assistant Athanasius immediately realised that this was no mere theological nicety. Arius was asking vital questions
about the nature of God. In the meantime, Arius, a skilful propagandist, had set his ideas to music and soon the laity were debating the issue as
passionately as their bishops.

The controversy became so heated that the emperor Constantine himself intervened and summoned a synod to Nicaea in modern Turkey to
settle the issue. Today Arius's name is a byword for heresy but when the conflict broke out there was no officially orthodox position and it was
by no means certain why or even whether Arius was wrong. There was nothing new about his claim: Origen, whom both sides held in high
esteem, had taught a similar doctrine. Yet the intellectual climate in Alexandria had changed since Origen's day and people were no longer
convinced that the God of Plato could be successfully wedded with the God of the Bible. Arius, Alexander and Athanasius, for example, had
come to believe a doctrine that would have startled any Platonist: they considered that God had created the world out of nothing (ex nihilo),
basing their opinion on scripture. In fact, Genesis had not made this claim. The Priestly author had implied that God had created the world out
of the primordial chaos and the notion that God had summoned the whole universe from an absolute vacuum was entirely new. It was alien to
Greek thought and had not been taught by such theologians as Clement and Origen, who had held to the Platonic scheme of emanation. But by
the fourth century, Christians shared the Gnostic view of the world as inherently fragile and imperfect, separated from God by a vast chasm.
The new doctrine of creation ex nihilo emphasised this view of the cosmos as quintessentially frail and utterly dependent upon God for being
and life. God and humanity were no longer akin, as in Greek thought. God had summoned every single being from an abysmal nothingness and
at any moment he could withdraw his sustaining hand. There was no longer a great chain of being emanating eternally from God; there was no
longer an intermediate world of spiritual beings who transmitted the divine mana to the world. Men and women could no longer ascend the
chain of being to God by their own efforts. Only the God who had drawn them from nothingness in the first place and kept them perpetually in
being could assure their eternal salvation.

Christians knew that Jesus Christ had saved them by his death and resurrection; they had been redeemed from extinction and would one day
share the existence of God, who was Being and Life itself. Somehow Christ had enabled them to cross the gulf that separated God from
humanity. The question was how had he done it? On which side of the Great Divide was he? There was now no longer a Pleroma, a Place of
Fullness of intermediaries and aeons. Either Christ, the Word, belonged to the divine realm (which was now the domain of God alone) or he
belonged to the fragile created order. Arius and Athanasius put him on opposite sides of the gulf: Athanasius in the divine world and Arius in
the created order.
Arius wanted to emphasise the essential difference between the unique God and all his creatures. As he wrote to Bishop Alexander, God was
'the only unbegotten, the only eternal, the only one without beginning, the only true, the only one who has immortality, the only wise, the only
good, the only potentate'. {3} Arius knew the scriptures well and he produced an armoury of texts to support his claim that Christ the Word
could only be a creature like ourselves. A key passage was the description of the divine Wisdom in Proverbs, which stated explicitly that God
had created Wisdom at the very beginning. {4} This text also stated that Wisdom had been the agent of creation, an idea repeated in the
Prologue of St John's Gospel.

I never told them anything except what You ordered me to say: “Worship Allah—my Lord and your Lord!” And I was witness over them as long as I remained among them. But when You took me,1 You were the Witness over them—and You are a Witness over all things.

If You punish them, they belong to You after all.1 But if You forgive them, You are surely the Almighty, All-Wise.”


To Allah ˹alone˺ belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything within. And He is Most Capable of everything.
