Before I discuss the concept of God and Christianity, I would like to make a few points clear that Islam is the only non Christian faith, which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus peace be upon him.

00:00:15--> 00:00:48

No Muslim is a Muslim. If he does not believe in Jesus 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 translated Christ. We believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, which many modern Christians did not believe. We believe that he healed those born blind lepers with God's permission. We believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission.

00:00:49--> 00:01:37

The Muslim the Christians were going together. But there are some Christians who say that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he claimed divinity. In fact, if you read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. In the complete Bible, where Jesus peace be upon him himself says, that is God. aware, he says, worship me. In fact, if you read the Bible, Jesus peace be upon him says it's mentioned. And the gospel of john chapter number 14 was number 28. My father is greater than I, gospel of john chapter number 10, was number 29. My father is greater than all Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, was number 28, I cast out devil with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke, chapter

00:01:37--> 00:01:42

number 11, was number 20. I cast out devil with the finger of God.

00:01:44--> 00:02:11

gospel of john chapter number five was number 30, I can have my own self do nothing. As a you're a judge. And my judgment is just for I seek not my will, but the will of my Father. Anyone who says that I seek not my will, but God's will. It means he's submitting his will to Almighty God. And if you translate into Arabic, it means Islam. And anyone who submits his will to Almighty God is called as a Muslim.

00:02:13--> 00:02:20

Jesus peace be upon him. He never came to destroy the law, the prophets. In fact, he came to confirm them.

00:02:22--> 00:02:34

And Jesus peace be upon him says, It's mentioned the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number five, was number 7020. He says, that Think not that I am come to destroy the law of the prophets.

All these quotations from the Bible from the King James Version,

00:02:40--> 00:03:22

For verily is the heaven and the earth pass not to one jot or tittle shall pass away from the law until all be fulfilled. And whosoever shall break one of the least commandments, and teach men to do so shall be called lift in the kingdom of heaven, and whosoever shall keep them, and the same shall be called 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. Jesus peace be upon him says that if you want to go to Paradise, you have to

00:03:22--> 00:03:31

follow each and every law of the Old Testament, including that God is one, he has got no partners, you cannot get an image of God.

00:03:34--> 00:03:41

And Jesus peace be upon him. He never claimed that he was a mighty God. In fact, he says that he was sent by God.

00:03:43--> 00:03:54

00:05:03--> 00:05:08
