00:00:01--> 00:00:05

Before we discuss the concept of boring Christianity,

00:00:06--> 00:00:07

I would like to make a few points clear.

00:00:09--> 00:00:53

Islam is the only non Christian faith, which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus Christ peace be upon him. No Muslim is a Muslim. If he does not believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala of Almighty God. We believe that he was the Messiah transcended Christ, we believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, which many modern day Christians today do not believe. We believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission, we believe that he is those born blind and lepers with God's permission, the Christians and the Muslims, we are going together. But one may

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

ask, then where is the parting of ways?

00:00:56--> 00:01:04

The Parting of ways is that there are many Christians who say that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he claimed divinity.

00:01:06--> 00:01:18

In fact, if you read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. And the complete Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself says that I am God always worship me.

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

I'd like to repeat the statement.

00:01:24--> 00:01:51

There is not a single unequivocal statement, not a single unambiguous statement. In the complete Bible, where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself says that I am God always says worship me. If any Christian can point out any unequivocal statement, any unambiguous statement from anywhere in the Bible, where Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God always worship Me, I am ready to accept Christianity today.

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

I am not speaking on behalf of my other Muslims. I am a student of comparative religion.

00:02:01--> 00:02:38

I am ready to put my head on the guillotine. If any Christian can point out any single unequal statement, and the complaint Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God always says worship Me, I am ready to accept Christianity. In fact, if we read the Bible, Jesus Christ, please be upon him. He mentioned himself and the gospel of john, chapter number 14 was number 28. Jesus Christ peace be upon him said, My father is greater than I was full of john chapter number 10, was the majority nine, my father is greater than all Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, was number 28. I cast out devils with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke chapter number 11, was

00:02:38--> 00:03:20

number 20. I with the finger of God cast out devils gospel of john, chapter number five was number 30, I can have my own cell do nothing. As I hear, I judge and my judgment is just for I seek not my will, but the will of Almighty God. Anyone who says I seek not my will, but the will of Almighty God, he's a Muslim, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him as a Muslim. He never claimed divinity. In fact, he clearly mentioned it's mentioned the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number five was number 7020. Jesus Christ peace be upon him said that in cannot that I am come to destroy the law, the prophets. I have come not to destroy, but to fulfill until the heavens and the earth passed away, not one jot

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

or tittle shall pass away from the law until all be fulfilled.

00:03:24--> 00:03:51

And whosoever shall break one of the least commandments, and teach men to do so shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. And whosoever shall keep the commandments, and teach men the same, they said, we call great in the kingdom of heaven, unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and the Pharisees. In no way shall you enter the kingdom of heaven. This is a verbatim quotation from the Gospel of Matthew chapter number five, verse number 17, to 20.

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

And you can check it up.

00:03:54--> 00:03:58

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him said that if you want to enter Jannah

00:03:59--> 00:04:18

you have to be better than the Jews. Better than the scribes and the Pharisees. You have to follow each and every commandment of Moses, peace be upon him, even if you break one of the least commandments, you shall not enter Gemini You shall not enter Paradise. You have to believe in everything what Moses peace be upon him said earlier. You have to believe man, God, that God has got no images, etc.

00:04:20--> 00:04:34

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. He never claimed divinity. In fact, he said, it's mentioned the gospel of john chapter number 14 was number 24. Jesus Christ peace be upon him said that the word that you hear are not mine, but my father's were sent me.

00:04:35--> 00:04:44

It's mentioned the gospel of john chapter number 17, verse number three, this is life eternal, so that you may know there is one God and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent.

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

It further mentioned the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number 19, was in the 16th and 17th. Once a person he approaches to discuss peace be upon him, and he asked him that good master what good things

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Should I do so that I shall receive eternal life is asking Jesus Christ upon good Master, what good things should I do so that I ever get returned in life I shall go to Paradise. So Jesus Christ peace be upon him replies and says, Why thou college me good. Leave aside God, why thou college me good. There's only one good and that is Almighty God. And if thou want to enter eternal life, if you want to enter Paradise, to keep the commandments, Jesus Christ peace be upon did not say that if you want to enter Paradise believe that I am God. He did not say believe that I died on the cross for your sins. He said, If you want to enter Paradise, you keep the commandments, all that there is one God.

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

God has got no images, etc.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

It's clearly mentioned Book of Acts, chapter number two,

00:05:50--> 00:06:05

verse number 22. It says, a man of Israel, listen to this, Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, by miracles and wonders and signs which God did by him and your witness to it.

00:06:06--> 00:06:18

Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him, and your witness to it.

00:06:19--> 00:06:42

And when Jesus Christ peace be upon us, that which is the first of the commandments, he replies, in the Gospel of Mark, chapter number 12, was 29. Exactly verbatim what was said earlier by Moses peace be upon him in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number six, verse number four. And he says, Shama is a low admin high, not naked, it's a Hebrew quotation, which means your O Israel, the Lord, our God is One Lord.

00:06:43--> 00:06:54

So if you read the Christian Bible, you shall understand the concept of God in Christianity, that Almighty God's only one has got no images, and have to worship Him alone and no one else
