  2. Maybe some atheists or agnostics do not rule out some kind of maximally great intelligent Being that does not have a desire to be worshipped or obeyed and has no desire to communicate with the world. And has not intervened in the world it has created.

    The concept that you begin with of what “God” is or “great” is seems to dictate what kind of God possibly, and therefore, actually exists, at least for you. It could be a very different “God” to someone else.

    So the argument seems to have serious limitations, if not flaws.

    The bible supports the idea that there is some intuitive idea of God present in the mind of man. The explanation being that he is made in the image of God.

    Romans 1:

    20
    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
    21
    Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    Just my thoughts on the matter. As an armchair philosopher at best.

    • All arguments of this kind have limitations since they are attempting to deduce the reality of God through our reason without reference to His self revelatory Word whether it be the Qur’an, the Gospel, or the Torah.

      The purpose of these arguments, in my opinion, is akin to the ayats of the Qur’an which use the natural world as an example of God’s attributes in which it usually finishes with ‘herein are signs for those who use their reason’. Reason which can be clouded by the fitrah or illuminated by Revelation.

      In other words, not everyone is going to see the same thing when looking at the creation whether it be in the form of an argument or meditating on the creation itself. The job is to apply these arguments (if necessary) and hopefully guide a person to the profound conversion of Abraham, to simply see the Reality of God through the movement of the creation, knowing that they cannot fulfill our deepest desire to know and give obeisance to its Originator.

        1. Your hasty generalization fallacy v. QB quoting text
        The difference here is the text of Christian Scripture says the saints rose from their graves and walked around. You are making the comparison of a person’s opinion on a text as being the equivalent when its not. Christians MUST accept Matt, we have no obligation to accept this opinion. Big difference here and not that hard to get for anyone with two working brain cells.

        2. What Sheikh Yassir Qadhi actually said starting @1:04:47:

        As I tell people when talking about Yassir Qadhi he’s the type you can’t “clip” what he’s saying and you have to follow him in his train of thought:

        A. There is ONE hadith that mentions them digging every day in the wall and its authenticity has been disputed by many classical and medieval scholars (including the heavyweight legend Ibn Kathir) that this comes from the Bible or Jewish stories.

        B. The tribes mentioned in the Quran could have been these people later’s ancestors

        C. He says that the wall coming down and their descendants being mentioned is a position he prefers.

        D, He clearly says at 1:08:15 that he does not believe in the zombie interpretation he is relaying a conversation he had in private (he emphasis TWICE at 1:08:46 this is NOT his opinion and don’t say he believes this) He even makes a joke about it

        E. All he said was that by dropping this disputed hadith his friend’s joking interpretation makes more sense then something we are not required to believe in.

        F. Stewjo is going to solve the problem right now…
        Wall’s down. Descendants are walking around. Ta-dah, not that hard to believe.

        G. What does any of this have to do with you disbelieving in your Lord?

        So what the text is saying is when this happened 🕇

        This happened ⚰️+ 😇 =🧟

        They must explain the dead rising

        Yassir Qadhi:

        Hey, guys here’s this funny thing my one friend said, I laughed at first while obviously not zombies in monster movies it does make a little sense they may share some of those qualities.

        1. Never said zombies himself
        2. He’s obviously playing and exploring the concept
        3. It does NOT make sense as it doesn’t explain the Gog and Magog during Dhul Qarfnain’s time.

        These are vastly different statements,

        The problem is the dumb kaffir you listened too (who put words into Yassir’s mouth btw) is influencing you to say dumb things. Let’s now contemplate on the Quran together and see if we can apply this to our lives:

        “…There were evil ones from both humans and demons. They would inspire each other with propaganda but had your Lord wanted they would not have done that, so leave them and what they make up alone. I allowed this only so that those who don’t believe in a life to come, will have their hearts incline towards that and become obsessed with it, so that they can earn these sins they’re constantly committing… If you were to follow most of whoever is on the earth they will misguide from God’s path, because they’re following nothing but assumptions and are doing nothing but making things up.” (6:112-116)

        Mhmm mmm. Powerful words right there.

        You should go to sleep with dead people like your prophet. That dead woman got a shock in the grave that probably resuscitates her lol.

        Narrated Anas bin Malik:

        We were (in the funeral procession) of one of the daughters of the Prophet (ﷺ) and he was sitting by the side of the grave (جَالِسٌ عَلَى الْقَبْرِ – literally “sitting on the grave”). I saw his eyes shedding tears. He said, “Is there anyone among you who did not have sexual relations with his wife last night?” Abu Talha replied in the affirmative (أَنَا‏ – literally “me!”). And so the Prophet told him to get down in the grave. And so he got down (فَنَزَلَ) in her grave.

        Sahih Bukhari 2:23:374

        “I (Muhammad) put on her my shirt that she may wear the clothes of heaven, and I SLEPT with her (واضطجع معها) in her coffin (grave) that I may lessen the pressure of the grave. She was the best of Allah’s creatures to me after Abu Talib”…

        Firstly “resuscitation” has NOTHING to do with the text. Nothing!
        Resuscitation implies people that are ALIVE and not dead. The ones that come out of the grave in Matthew are DEAD. You bring up “resuscitation” to try and achieve a gotchya moment but this is a false equivalence and you know it. Now you claim that you didn’t say it’s in the text which even if that’s true it’s still irrelevant. Your ‘argument’ still fails bigtime.

        Secondly what is the purpose of the link you threw forward? It doesn’t adress my points. You couln’t refute what I said so you went and quickly did a google search (most likely didn’t even properly read it all) in an attempt to save face. I clearly and explicitly said:

        Firstly when I said I don’t care I meant IN REGARDS TO MY ARGUMENTS. If you’re so stupid that I have to explain this to you then you’re among the most stupid kafirs.
        All you can say is ‘this muslim here says this or does that’ and that’s ALL you’ll ever say and pretend it’s proof. You’re not debating me or QB or Stew. You’re just talking to yourself since a debate would imply you engage with the other sides arguments.
        I said clearly that in 7th century Arabia there is nothing wrong with this since they don’t have the luxury of modern technology to get the necessary ingedrients out of urine like we do today. Hence we can’t hold them responsible for not having the capabilities to pure medicin.
        We use horse urinie in medicin which is first gone through a proces of extraction. But again: the bedouins 14 centuries ago didn’t have that luxury and hence cannot be held accountable.
        I know raw urine has negative effects on the body you retard. I never said that I approve of using it like that today with the technology that is available to us. People that have cancer get cured with radiation!
        Is radiation healthy? To make it easier for your monkey brain: If you had to choose between radiation and some camel piss mixed with milk, then not only would you choose camel urine but you would stick your fitlhy toung up that camel’s ass out of gratitude that you can pick that instead of radiation. So no radiation is EXTREMELY unhealthy for the body. But it gets rid of cancer and that’s why it exists today. If a thousand years from now people come up with a better way to cure it than use radiation and has barely any negative effects, then obviously radiation would not be used anymore. Now, would it be logical for the people a thousand years from now to start bitching, whining and yapping about how stupid we are today to use radiation? Well if you don’t count retards like you, then no.
        But it won’t matter. You’ll keep talking to yourself like a complete retarded kafir since that’s all you insignificant maggots can do.

        As for your pathetitc attempt at saving face with the “clinically dead” approach. Amusing! Trying to play verbal gymnasitics. You sure you ain’t a xtian?
        The term used is “clinically”. Dumbass it’s just a medical term. It does not mean they are dead.
        If they were dead then it wouldn’t say “clinically” but just “dead”.

        A mere search for the term “resuscitation” shows the following:

      • The koranic paradigm is that the prophet or warner goes to the unbelieving people and summons them to submit to Islam. This is never portrayed as a peaceful process in the Koran but as a judgement with violence inflicted as part of the judgement in the form of punishment. Allah has not constrained this punishment by any rules or regulations. It could take any shape or form. From a koranic point of view this confrontation is the perennial duty of the Ummah. This is a license for any kind of action that achieves the objective of removing all obstacles to the implementation of Sharia.

        It is interesting that Mohammed himself failed to meet the criteria that he himself set up in the Koran by the historical examples of judgement that he gave. There were no miracles involved in his confrontation with the Meccans contrary to the confrontations of the earlier prophets or warners cited in the Koran and Mohammed depended solely on human power to engage with and oppose the unbelievers. If God was with him his judgement upon the Meccan polytheists should have been quick, decisive and supernatural by necessity because there was no other force available to him. Instead he was begging for years for the pagans in Mecca to change their ways without success. This proves that he was not a prophet according to the koranic examples of previous warners and destroyers of non-islamic civilizations.

        Jesus (as) conquered Jerusalem riding a purple elephant while shooting fireballs from his eyes. See how easy it is to make claims? What are your sources?

        Regarding your other arguments, as Paul noted there are just so many wrong things its hard to know where to start:

        1. Prophets act as warners. Disbelievers such as yourself not listening are not the fault of the prophet. This point presented is actually a proof FOR Islam as prophets are not accepted by their people when they first arrive. The purpose of this is simply to establish proof against the people. Using your poor understanding, Moses(as) begged the Pharaoh and Jesus(as) begged the Jews.

        2. We do not have a license to do anything necessary to implement Shariah we actually have a lot of constraints.

        3. Muhammad(saw) did perform miracles they were mocking and weren’t really sincere so they rejected.

        4. He was given the option to destroy them through supernatural means but asked for an extension (as they are still his family at the end of the day)

        5. There are many prophets that did not use supernatural means to establish the Message on disbelievers and this is even referenced in the Quran:

        How many Prophets have FOUGHT, with religious people at their side who never gave up? When they suffered in God’s Cause, they did not waver or degrade themselves because God loves those who remain patient and continue to persevere. (3:146)

        Besides these many prophets not listed, other prophets who did not have supernatural destruction on evil nations but had fighting include:

        Jesus(as), Moses(as), Aaron(as), Elijah(as), David(as), Solomon(as) and Samuel(as)

        So this observation you made not reading the Quran is just plain incorrect.

        6. Muhammad(saw) was not just sent to Arabia but humanity so these small insignificant disbelievers are nothing in the grand scheme. God doing completely supernatural means would not give an example for the rest of humanity for all time.

        Without seeing these articles in context I assume they are saying He is not “love” in the generic sense. For example, we understand God has the attribute of anger but it is inappropriate to say:

        God clearly refrences Himself in Islam as Al Wadood (The Loving)

        And so this defeats your entire premise. But you should already know this as this has been explained to you before.

        Moving on, the Trinity is a contradicting hot mess made by pagans to justify worshipping a human. Also quoting the NT to defend your heresy is not evidence it would be like how you don’t accept me quoting the Quran it is the same for the Jews towards the NT. You’re all heretics to me but the childish argument you have attempted to use of “who came first” can EASILY be applied to your sect and as far as the Jews are concerned they have everything they need (which as a neutral observer is true) Your heresy really added nothing new to the Jewish faith accept more overt paganism.

        Finally as I didn’t want to go on tangents the variants do affect major doctrine and show a clear attempt to strengthen said heresy. Couple this with the fact that the Jews (who you blindly follow) ADMIT they changed their text this is a slam dunk for us. But again this is irrelevant because as I said earlier you still have issues of morality, contradictions, practicality and major theological plot holes that your textual corruption is in reality just icing on the cake.

        As for Idolatry, because the human and divine natures cannot be separated when you worship the second person of the trinity you HAVE to give worship to the human nature as well. anything less would be separating the natures in your mind.

        “The human nature in Jesus does not “do” anything.”

        That’s actually my point and what i’ve been getting at. Since i’m bad at explaining i’ll try being more thorough so you can understand my contentions. The second person of the trinity, the son, has two natures. Fully human and fully divine. These natures are distinct, not mixed, and unified in the person jesus christ(a.s).

        These natures cannot be separated. What that should mean is that you cannot pick and choose which nature you want to experience your actions toward the person of jesus christ(a.s). For example,if you were to say hi to the “godman” you could not pick which nature to say hi too. you just say hi to the person and by extension his nature(s). Similarly, if you want to worship jesus you by extension, worship the natures attached to him. saying you pick the divine nature to worship but not the human sounds like to me separating the natures. It’d be like saying the “godman” stops being human when you worship him.

        Do you see where i’m coming from now?

      Irresistible desire to get the one sought after. It is a passionate love that blinds the person to the faults of the one they want to be with. Obviously carries a sexual connotation and is more akin to lust.

      wadood
      ودود

      Special type of love. Often used for a mother with her child. Unlike the previous versions this type of love is selfless. Its a nurturing love in which you want to genuinely benefit and be in the other person’s company. Muhabbat is what is in the heart, wadood is what is shown through action. Al Wadood is loved and shows it back. No sexual nature is involved.

        The pre-existence and Deity of the Word / Son is clear – John 1:1-5; 1:14-18; 17:5; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 1:3, 6, 8; Revelation 5:13-14.

        That is why Reformed Protestants object to the Roman Catholic and Orthodox views of icons and praying to saints – 2nd Nicean council in 787 AD – they “venerate” holy people / saints / heroes of the faith because of Christ as one Divine Person was and is worshipped; and they wrongly take sanctification and glorification in heaven as “deification”. that is why most Protestant, especially Reformed Protestants, reject icons and statues in the context of worship. It was confusing for early Muslims to see the large icons and statues and emphasis on Mary, etc. That problem even caused the author (s) of the Qur’an to think the Trinity was Father, Son, and Mother (5:72-78; 5:116; 6:101; 112)

        These terms are very distinct from one another. Just accept you made a mistake and were incorrect in saying Islam doesn’t have a concept of God being loving like a parent or God having a loving nature. It’s okay to make a mistake its not okay to defend it.

        3. From an Islamic standpoint praying TO someone is worshipping them. Catholics and Roman Catholics pray TO the saints and Mary. (If you would like me to bring you some of their prayers I can) and this is OBVIOUSLY what is being condemned in the verse’s context. Please see Mary as the “Mother of God” or “Co-Redemptrix”

        4. Please prove their are multiple authors in the Quran. Just talking from a literary standpoint the author has the same style throughout so what scholarly work do you have to prove your assertion?

It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.
    Surah 5:116

    And surah 5:72-78

    They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.” Indeed, he who associates others with Allah – Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.

    They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” Allah is the third of three.” And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.

    So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

    The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded.

    Say, “Do you worship besides Allah that which holds for you no [power of] harm or benefit while it is Allah who is the Hearing, the Knowing?”

    Say, “O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way.”

    With 4:171

    O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.

    And 6:101

    [He is] Originator of the heavens and the earth. How could He have a son when He does not have a companion and He created all things? And He is, of all things, Knowing.

And then these pagans come and try and bring our Qur’an down to that level.

        As for his pathetic attempts like little jimmy to argue that some of what is in the Qur’an is found in non-Biblical sources I find just as ridiculous. As if we care whether THEY think their bible is end all, be all scripture and all the other attempts at making up scripture like the apocria and gnostics. Their all corrupt frankenstians. The bible is not much different. It too is a frankenstein made up of fake letters, poems, songs, authobiographies by unknown authors, documents written by those wo lie about their identity, etc etc.

        We have no problem with there being similarities with things for example found in the Talmud since the Talmud is not only MASSIVE and talks about religious matters of the pas but comes from a people (ie. the Jews) who were give a scripture before us. This of course doesn’t validate the Talmud as a whole just like it doesn’t validate the Bible as a whole. It only makes sense statistically speaking for a God how gave a scripture to previous people, to have events discribed which are found in later scriptures. What are the chances of NOT finding something similar with that of the Qur’an in the Talmud? Purely from a statistically point of view: next to zero.

        There is absolutly no problem there.

  26. 2. When Muslims see Roman Catholics and other eastern Orthodox groups praying to Mary and bowing before statues, that is idolatry to them and they see the Popes also in modern times doing the same think. They don’t care about distinctions. There are some famous pictures of John Paul II bowing before a giant Mary statue and the current Pope Benedict XVI praying with hands spread out in front of a giant Mary statue. There is no difference in the Muslims mind.

    Because the Qur’an says the Trinity is Father, Son, and Mother, that is what they think our doctrine of the Trinity is.

    Therefore, Roman Catholics and Orthodox should stop the Marian practices of devotion and dulia and hyperdulia and repent of the Marian dogmas, which are false doctrine and “traditions of men”. (Matthew 15; Mark 7; Colossians 2:8

    3. See what Ibn Kathir, one of the most important commentaries on the Quran in all of Muslim history says:

    Ismail ibn Kathir (Arabic: ابن كثير‎) (1301–1373 AD) was an Islamic scholar and renowned commentator on the Qur’an.

    If you study Inb Kathir’s commentary (Tafsir) on the Qur’an, (see the link below), he lumps all of the Christian groups together. The Monarchites are the Melkites (meaning those that follow the king, the Monarch, meaning the Byzantine Emperor in Constantinople and the Chalcedonain Creed. He includes the Monophysites (Jacobite Syrians & Coptic church) and the Nestorians (church of the east in Syria and Mesopotamia and which spread out in missionary outreach along the silk road all the way to China. They were pretty much wiped out first by the Seljuk Turks and then completely by the Mongols under Gengis Khan and Timor Lang ( known in the west as Tamerlane.)

    Muslims don’t care much about the differences in the Christian groups. It is too much to copy onto this combox, but read through the whole thing and you will see that he talks about the Christians, their monks, their priests, the ascetics who castrated themselves ( Like Origen, and Simon Stylitis, who lived on top of a pillar/column for many years.) The Muslims like their humility when contrasting with the Jews, but think that Monastisim and giving up marriage is ridiculous.

    In the commentary, all the passages about Christians, the Chalcedonians (Orthodox/Melchites/Maronites/Monarchites) and the Monophysites and the Nestorians are all lumped together as “Christians”. There is no doubt that Marian devotion, prayers to her and bowing before statues and icons, and later the Marian dogmas are indications for Muslims that the “Christians worship three gods”.

    The Disbelief of the Christians; `Isa Only called to Tawhid
    Allah states that the Christians such sects as Monarchite, Jacobite and Nestorite are disbelievers, those among them who say that `Isa is Allah. Allah is far holier than what they attribute to Him. They made this claim in spite of the fact that `Isa made it known that he was the servant of Allah and His Messenger. The first words that `Isa uttered when he was still a baby in the cradle were, “I am `Abdullah (the servant of Allah).” He did not say, “I am Allah,” or, “I am the son of Allah.” Rather, he said,
    [إِنِّى عَبْدُ اللَّهِ ءَاتَانِىَ الْكِتَـبَ وَجَعَلَنِى نَبِيّاً]
    Later . . .
    Allah will also speak to His servant and Messenger, `Isa son of Maryam, peace be upon him, saying to him on the Day of Resurrection in the presence of those who worshipped `Isa and his mother as gods besides Allah,
    [يعِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ أَءَنتَ قُلتَ لِلنَّاسِ اتَّخِذُونِى وَأُمِّىَ إِلَـهَيْنِ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ]
    (O `Isa, son of Maryam! Did you say unto men: `Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah’) This is a threat and a warning to Christians, chastising them in public, as Qatadah and others said, and Qatadah mentioned this Ayah as evidence, . . .

He is saying things ignorantly – they (Mohammad and the Arabs and compilers of the Qur’an, Uthman burning all the older copies, etc. – most of the evidence of earlier texts was destroyed). It is obvious that he did not know what he is talking about. They saw the icons and statues and emphasis on Mary, saw the Christians of that day praying to Mary, etc. and heard a word that has as it’s roots “three” in it (“say not three”; “allah is not the 3rd of 3”, etc.) – it is obvious that the author or compilers (frankenstein book – cobbled together from Legends, apocryphal stories of heretics that were exiled to the deserts of N. Arabia, today’s area of Jordan, areas in Syria and Palestine, etc. – cobbled together with Jewish Midrash – They (Muhammad and the Arabs) were ignorant, both of the Bible and church history and doctrinal history. All of those verses together prove that the Qur’an wrongly thought that the Trinity was Father, Son, and Mother. From Surah 19:88-92, it is obvious that 6:101 and Surah 112 is speaking against the Sonship of Christ, and that the early Muslims wrongly thought that the Christians were saying God had sex with Mary – Estaqfr’allah !
        استغفرالله

        It is obvious that the Qur’an thought the Trinity was God, Son Jesus, and Mary – 5:116; 5:72-78; 6:101; 19:88-92; 112; 4:171

You continu to make up stuff over and over again like ‘o he saw this statue and he got the idea that blablabla’ where is the evidence??? Where does it say ANY of that? Nowhere and you know it. You call that objective analysis? “Liberal” scholars use WAAAAYYYY less wishful thinking than that and when that is presented to rip apart your Frankenstein book made up of unkown authors, authors lying about their identity, authors wripping things out of context from the OT, authors just completly editing from previous documents like ‘Matthew’ editing Mark, etc etc… you reject it by crying “LIBERAL SCHOLARS”.

        You whine for much less and here you are making stuff up and all you have to show for it is “O it’s obiously this and obviously that and obviously he saw this statue and obviously he then thought this and obviously yadayadayada”.
        The Qur’an is clear on this issue.
        The verses talking about ‘three’ reject all your pagan trash including your false pagan Greek/Roman trinity. Get over it. It’s ALL idolatry. ALL of it. You verbal gymnastics with your pathetic “o it’s person, o that is a being and o that is a a a a a nature and and and he has two of them and so aaaam…. well he is god, there!”. And we have to hear from such pagans about what monotheism is??? What a joke.

        The Qur’an doesn’t care about what you say the bible is. It is no different then the other so called scriptures that you reject like the apocrophal documents.
        Jude quotes from the book of Enoch and yet you swallow that. No problem there, hallelujah!

        So let me repeat this again: verses mentioning ‘three’ denies all tri-isms, icluding your pagan trinity.
        The verses about Jesus denying himself and his mother to be God are JUST THAT: denial of their divinity.
        And no matter how much you try, you’ll never be able to show otherwise since none of the crap you claim is anywhere in the Qur’an.
        And you keep showing what kinda wicked, deceptive snake you are by not only repeating this while having no evidence to back it up but also bring up Q 6:101. That’s talking about pagans. Sure xtians are pagans too but this is talking about other pagans. Have xtians gone so low that they even belong to this group which is mentioned in the verse just before it:
        Q 6:100 “But they have attributed to Allah partners – the jinn, while He has created them – and have fabricated for Him sons and daughters. Exalted is He and high above what they describe”

        So you worship jinn too now? Congrats!

    Anyways not ONE of these texts say Mary is in the Trinity you have engaged in a fallacy called “reading in between the lines” and as shown previously have poor reading comprehension (which is why you can’t quote ANY scholar saying Mary is supposed to be in the Trinity in these verses mentioned and can ONLY quote Shamoun).

    6:101
    Not even talking about Christians

    4:171
    Has nothing to do with Mary being in the Trinity period. God is saying Jesus was a soul created that was placed into Mary, so don’t do to the extreme in worshipping a Messenger and stop saying God is a “trinity”.

    5:72
    Again saying stop calling God a Trinity, God praises Jesus saying he was a prophet his mother was righteous

    5:116
    As noted you are already familiar with Christians over veneration of Mary and this really explains all the other passages.

    Since you apparently want some deep philosophical crap about the Trinity I’ll keep this REAL simple is God wrong when He says that pagan idols are gold and wood when they in reality have much more complex systems and theology regarding their religion?

    Finally yes you are correct (especially in the Middle Ages) we really don’t care about your deviant sects as they will all be in Hell the gist of idolatry is the same just minor nuances that have no defined methodology of evidence other than this is how I feel the Holy Spirit is guiding me which has always plagued Christendom.

      Yes it does since 5:116 and 5:72-78 and 6:101 and 112 and 19:88-92 indicate so.

      God is saying Jesus was a soul created that was placed into Mary, so don’t do to the extreme in worshipping a Messenger and stop saying God is a “trinity”.

      see, you proved my point.

      5:72
      Again saying stop calling God a Trinity,

      see, it is obvious what the Qur’an thought the Trinity was, along with 5:116; 6:101; 112; 19:88-92; 5:72-78 – you proved my point again.

      God praises Jesus saying he was a prophet his mother was righteous

      5:116
      As noted you are already familiar with Christians over veneration of Mary and this really explains all the other passages.

      Since the Qur’an nowhere mentions a proper understanding of the Holy Spirit – according to the NT and according to church history, which the Allah of the Qur’an is ignorant of, which proves he did not inspire that book; – and since it puts Mary together with God the Father and Jesus in 5:116; and since the Qur’an nowhere understands the One God in substance / nature/ essence and yet three in persons; it is obvious that it mistakenly thought that Mary was a part of the Trinity. Also the Qur’an is ignorant of what Christians meant by “Jesus is the Son of God” in the NT and 600 years of church history (112; 6:101; 19:88-92) – this also proves the massive ignorance of the Qur’an.

        The only ignorant misunderstanding is you and Jimmy thinking 6:101 has anything to do with Christians. Now let’s give your butt a break from talking and read together:

        6:99. It is He Who sent water from the sky, and with it I extract the growth of all things. I produce from it greenery and from that I bring out grains riding on top of one another. From the newly sprouting branches of date palms comes batches hanging low. Along with gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, that are similar yet different. Look at their fruits as they first come out and after they have fully matured because there are many lessons in that for people that seeks to believe.
        6:100. Yet still they would make DEMONS partners with God even though He created them? They tear open their natural instincts and ignorantly attribute SONS AND DAUGHTERS to Him. How perfect and far above is He over elaborate descriptions they give?
        6:101. He is the Original Creative Trigger of the heavens and earth. How could He have children when He has no spouse, He created all things and has complete knowledge of everything?
        6:102. That is God, your Lord, there is no god but Him. The Creator of everything, so worship only Him because He is taking care of all things.

        Now a few questions here Ken:

        1.Do you make demons partners with God?
        2.Do you attribute sons AND daughters to God?

        I don’t think so but hey new Christians sects pop up every 5 min. Also notice God says He is far above the elaborate descriptions given to Him. Who makes up elaborate stories maybe something along what the Greeks, Hindus, etc say?

        Anyways, now let’s take a look at who is being referred to. In the SAME chapter:

        6:1-70 is referring to the pagan Arabs making fun of being warned and that God should have sent an angel instead of a human. God refutes this then moves on to speaking about Abraham(as) and him debating his pagan people and talks about the many prophets He chose from his lineage. He then is clearly transitions again to talking about the pagans:

        6:136. The pagans assign to God a portion of the produce and the livestock He created, claiming: “This is for God and this is for our idols…” So their idol’s portion doesn’t reach God, but God’s portion reaches their idols? How horrible are their decisions?
        6:137. Just like in the same way, their idols have made it attractive to them to kill their own children, bringing themselves to ruin and confusion within their faith? If God had wanted otherwise they wouldn’t have done this, so leave them in the things they make up.

        He then proceeds to refute the pagans beliefs they just made up. This entire chapter is talking to the pagan Arabs. So even though your paganism and idolatry isn’t anything new of giving the Creator children this particular verse is not addressed to you nor the Trinity. Are you ready to admit this so we can move on?

        P.S.

        19:82 is NOT talking to you either. So again thank you for proving your total lack of knowledge of the Quran as it really makes things easier for people following our conversation.

        Too long to explain long story short many idols are Jinn who did something for a culture. Moving on:

        Please we said we want to give your butt a break so let’s stop talking out of it:

        19:88 is about the pagans saying God has children (common mistranslation here is son)
        http://tafsir.io/19/88

        Now again granted you have the same beliefs as the Pagans:
        (.. the Christians have said: “The Messiah is the son of God!” These are the words that have come from their own mouths, plagiarizing and adapting what disbelievers before them have said. 9:30)

        but this is not talking about the Trinity directly, only the concept of saying your Lord has a child (also I would suggest you stop calling God stupid). However, the verse we are discussing and you are attempting twist 6:101 has NOTHING to do with modern Christendom’s blasphemy in its immediate context. This entire chapter is talking to the pagans. Shockingly not every verse in the Quran is about Paulism.

        While you do have pagan beliefs (and you admit this) this verse cannot be used for your reading in between the lines fallacy. While we can apply this to you as well, it is not about you. For example you said:

        “That is why Reformed Protestants object to the Roman Catholic and Orthodox views of icons and praying to saints… they wrongly take sanctification and glorification in heaven as “deification”.

        and

        “Yes, That is one of the primary disagreements that protestants like me have with Roman Catholics and the eastern orthodox…”

        So you agree they worship the Saints. Now do THEY think that they’re worshipping the Saints Ken? Let’s read, ahem:

        “Often non-Catholics will claim that “Catholics worship saints.” This statement usually comes from the fact that Catholics often pray to saints, performing various devotions to them. While it may appear to some people that Catholics are worshiping saints, what they are doing is far from it. Catholics firmly believe that adoration and worship is due to God alone. Only God is divine and so only God can be the object of worship.”
        https://aleteia.org/2018/06/21/do-catholics-worship-saints/

        Also:

        “Many people seem to think Catholics worship Mary as the Mother of God. This is wrong. Catholics do not worship Mary as such, but instead, “the Church commends to the special and filial veneration of Christ’s faithful the Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, the Mother of God, whom Christ constituted the Mother of all” (Can. 1186). We know this because Jesus Christ said on the Cross, “Behold your mother” (John 19:27). Thus, since Mary is our mother (not just Jesus’ mother), we show profound reverence and respect for her, hence the term, “venerate”… some argue for the verse that comes after the First Commandment, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Ex. 20:4), the Church’s Canon Law states that “the practice of exposing sacred images in churches for the veneration of the faithful is to be retained” (Can. 1188). This is because, the primary context of Ex 20:4 must be understood in the context of not worshipping false gods or idols instead of the one, true, living, triune God, in the Holy Trinity. Therefore, maintaining that such images are to inspire the faithful to holiness, through veneration of the Saints and Blesseds, Can. 1188 states that the images of such are to be “displayed in moderate numbers in suitable fashion, so that the Christian people are not disturbed [not giving rise to a] less appropriate devotion”. Understood simply, God must always be the centre of our lives and the first priority, but we can also, in fostering our own sanctification, as allowed by the Church, venerate the Saints and Blessed and aspire towards holiness, taking them as our examples of how to live a good Christian life. However, we must never, under any circumstances, allow ourselves to become so obsessed over a particular devotion to a Saint or Blessed, thinking they are to be worshipped, in such a way it jeopardizes our relationship with God. So, next time you hear someone talking of “worshipping” Mary or the Saints/Blesseds, stop them for a moment and question them. Ask them, gently, if they understand what they are implying, and if they realize that the Church teaches us that we can venerate Saints/Blesseds, but that we can only truly worship the One True God. Dare to question and respond back to those who think Catholics worship anything other than God, and inform them about the Truth of our faith.”

        So as we both know this is idolatry right? But in their minds, they aren’t doing anything wrong and you little Ken are simply ignorant of their beliefs. Now:

        THE SAME THING APPLIES WHEN GOD CONDEMNS YOUR PAGANISM CALLED THE TRINITY IN THE QUR’AN!!!

      • quote:

        Allah (الله)/Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) = Ho Theos (ο θεος) while Huwa (هو)/Yihweh (יהוה) = Ho On (ὁ ὤν).

        The usage of Ahad as opposed to Wahid (واحد) is intended to confirm the fundamental creedal statement of the Children of Israel (بني إسرائيل), i.e. the Shema of Deut. 6:4: “Hear O Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is One (Echad)” (שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָֽד); and confirmed by Christ in Mark 12:29 (ἀπεκρίθη ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὅτι πρώτη ἐστίν ἄκουε Ἰσραήλ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν κύριος εἷς ἐστιν). Also, while wahid denotes one numerically and thus does not negate the existence of other “ones,” ahad, being also anarthrous, denotes utter uniqueness, one of a genus.

        In addition, Ahad negates the henotheism of the pre-Islamic Arabs who certainly affirmed that Allah was Wahid, but also acknowledged the existence of lesser deities
        .
        With respect to Christianity, the Qur’an repudiates the belief that God has a “Son” (ولد) in the Trinitarian sense by stating that “Allah is only One (واحد) God” (Q 4:171.5). Thus while Allah is numerically one (واحد), the term wahid also denotes His “internal oneness,” i.e. He is only one person (hypostasis; Arab. nafs; Heb. nefesh); there is no multiplicity in the godhead and He shares His Essence with no one and nothing else.

        This is the heart of the Qur’an’s critique of Trinitarianism. There are not multiple hypostatic (personal) pre-eternals; the attributes (sifat) of God are not separate and distinct hypostatic entities. The usage of Ahad in this ayah (112:1), however, denotes God’s “external oneness” thus not allowing any creature to be the incarnation of that indivisible Essence (ousia) since He is transcendent of space, time, and materiality, contra both Incarnational Modalism (Monarchism) and Trinitarianism. In this vein, Hosea (11:9) says: “Indeed I am God and not man” (כִּי אֵל אָֽנֹכִי וְלֹא־אִישׁ).

        1. Did the pagan Greeks use the term Logos for God that influenced Christians (hint yes)

        Philo used the term Logos to mean an intermediary divine being, or demiurge.[13] Philo followed the Platonic distinction between imperfect matter and perfect Form, and therefore intermediary beings were necessary to bridge the enormous gap between God and the material world.[14] The Logos was the highest of these intermediary beings, and was called by Philo “the first-born of God.”[14]

        The Logos is also designated as “high priest”, in reference to the exalted position which the high priest occupied after the Exile as the real center of the Jewish state. The Logos, like the high priest, is the expiator of sins, and the mediator and advocate for men: ἱκέτης,[19] and παράκλητος.[20]

        2. More importantly, they say its not idol worship and you are the one misunderstanding the verse. Therefore you are ignorant of their beliefs because they are not worshipping the Saints or Mary they are merely venerating them. So go and venerate with the Catholics and Eastern Orthodox. They are much earlier than your sect that only got traction because a king wanted to remarry so I think their understanding is much better.

        The fact of the matter is in Islamic theology to treat something like a god, other than God, is considered worship to said thing as a god. Now you can disagree with that notion but to derive from that, ignorance on the part of quran…well its odd to me to say the least. A good example in my opinion would be magic. Magic isn’t just considered a sin in Islam but outright shirk. The reason being because they interact with demons in way that they should only do with God(via rituals, obeying them, calling upon them,ect)It doesn’t matter if a person doesn’t actually think that said demon is God or a god.

        To be honest I’m surprised you’re taking such a critical role against the quranic text since the bible is far looser with the term god. Using it to refer to men and idols without the presumption of divinity or powers of any kind for example. Anything else i could say i feel has been already been said by everyone else.

        But we Protestants know the RC claims and how they justify their idolatry, which is at best, the appearance of idolatry. The question is, why does God command John, the apostle, who is a true believer, to not do that? (calls it worship – Rev. 19:10; 22:8-9)

    Until you bring some evidence that constraints are given in the Koran I will have to rightly assume that they are not there and that it is an amoral book giving license to Muslims to harm non-Muslims until they are dhimmified.

      As for delivering on the supernatural means, let’s see…

      1. Muslims had support from angels during their battles. This is attested by multiple people in the Hadith literature. The Quran mentions it.

      2. The Muslims received a well-timed storm that drove the pagans away from Medina during the battle of the Trench. This is again mentioned in the Quran.

      I have to ask a serious question do you actually believe in your text or is it just cultural passage. I’m saying this because some stuff you say is just bizarre and you have to either not believe or be completely ignorant about your texts.

      1. Rituals

      For example, the end comment. Why did God ask for Abraham(as) to sacrifice his son? Why did God want elaborate rituals to be performed? Why did He want the Temple to be built in that specific spot? Why did He ordain the Sabbath and choose that specific day instead of Monday or Wednesday? This is the first problem it is NOT your place to laugh at what God wants for His worship.

      2. Destruction

      Generally, until a prophet curses a nation is it destroyed through supernatural means. If you look at any nation destroyed the Prophet(s) there asked for it to fall on them. If God wanted to destroy the world nobody could prevent it. Everything has been given a deadline by Him and it will all eventually come before Him. It’s not that He wants to destroy He wants us to be with Him hence why He sent Messengers in the first place and revealed Scripture.

      3. Crimes
      Rejecting God’s Message, attacking His Messengers (both are enough to do the job), torture, cutting family ties, murder, theft and blocking people from God’s path. Again using your logic Sodom and Gommorah shouldn’t have been destroyed all they wanted to do was have sex with who they wanted to.

      Again man I just don’t think you really believe in God as these answers are easily understood by anyone with basic understanding.

        The temple was built there because Abraham offering his son is symbolic of God offering his Son. As far as the Sabbath goes he did not choose a particular day but ordained a cycle of activity. Six day work and one day rest. When these days fall in the calendar is secondary.

        Walking in a circle round a pile of stones or praying to this stone simply has no rational basis but is based on pagan superstition.

        “Generally, until a prophet curses a nation is it destroyed through supernatural means.”

        Islam is the only religion that destroys civilizations based solely on their religious worldview. God never does this in the OT. This is an islamic innovation that lays the religious foundation for an imperialistic expansionist strategy of war or jihad.

        “Rejecting God’s Message, attacking His Messengers (both are enough to do the job), torture, cutting family ties, murder, theft and blocking people from God’s path. Again using your logic Sodom and Gommorah shouldn’t have been destroyed all they wanted to do was have sex with who they wanted to.”

        Doesn’t justice seek to single out the perpetrators of crimes and punish only them?

        What does Sodom and Gomorrah have to do with it? Are you throwing in a red herring for good measure?

        Sodom and Gomorrah were punished for their immorality. Not because of their pagan beliefs.

    9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

    Oh and since Iggy is obsessed with stones, how about this little nugget:

    16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.

    17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

    18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

    19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

You and others came up with the most lame ass argument any human being can come up with: O it mentions three together so voila it’s the trinity!
        Pathetic.

Everytime you bring this up, either me or the other brothers on this blog put you in your place and you can NEVER respond back. You just repeat yourself over and over again.

        All you do is repeat the same trash arguments over and over again. Trying to find something which isn’t there. You pagans are VERY good at it. You have 2000 years of experience. Like f.e trying to find the trinity in the OT (loool!) and jam that pagan doctrine in there. Now you want to infest the Qur’an with that trash.

        The Qur’an is crystal clear on the matter.
        Don’t say three PERIOD. Whether it’s Father, Son, Sofia or Father, Son, the Word or your pagan trash Father, Son, holy potato. No three period.

People lying about their identities on your own so called holy book, ‘gospel’ authors lying about previous ‘gospel’ authors by changing what they wrote and on and on the list goes.

        So again: NO ONE here cares about your pathetic wishful thinking when it comes to the Qur’an. You were asked to show where it teaches your selfcontradicting pagan trinity is Allah, Jesus and Mary. You douldn’t.
        You came up with a childish way of trying to jam that into the Qur’an just like you do with the OT without any shame or guilt.

        except that god never says in the torah that the judge came down and got raped by sins from past, present and future because he could only transfer and not forgive.

        gods “justice” as defined by torah is not how it is defined by christianity.

        god says he forgives those who repent.

        in christianity there is no point in repenting, james white said “even my repentance is not good enough”

        if you identify it as “love and mercy” then he will not “pour out his punishment” on the REPENTFUL. contradiction in crosstianity alert.

        “He planned from eternity His own way to save us”

        because he was UNABLE TO say “i forgive you” he is LIMITED by his “punishment rules”

        he BREAKS his own punishment rules and punishes OUTSIDE of his justice.

      • No, the second person of the Trinity, the Word,(John 1:1-5) the Son (John 17:5) entered into humanity by becoming a human in the womb of Mary (Luke 1:34-35; John 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8) – He, the Word, the Son, added to Himself a human nature and body.

        That is not limiting God’s power.

        Your stuff about the law of God is wrong. God’s principle, after Adam and Eve sinned, is that death entered into the world.

        Genesis 2:17 – “in the day you eat of the fruit, you shall surely die”
        This principle is repeated throughout – “the soul that sins, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20)

        God, out of His mercy and love, both fulfilled His own justice by becoming a human and offering Himself up as a sacrifice on the cross, being the innocent and righteous and sinless substitute – like a lamb (like Passover lamb of Exodus 12), sheep (like Leviticus chapters 1-7), (like the 2 goats of Lev. 16-17, fulfilled in Isaiah 53, etc.

        His justice / wrath against sin was satisfied; and His love and mercy for sinners from all nations was demonstrated. (Revelation 5:9; 7:9)

        God demonstrated perfect justice and perfect love.

        “God demonstrates His own love, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

        There is no limitation on Him. He did this in history and revealed Himself and His plan for salvation in the NT, and the theology of the Deity of christ, the Trinity, the atonement – was all established for 600 years before Islam came around.

    Because the doctrine of the Trinity has always within the doctrine itself affirmed Monotheism – that there is only one creator God – sovereign, holy, wise, good, all knowing, etc.

    So, the Qur’an saying “say not three” and “Jesus is only a prophet / apostle”, etc. Jesus is not God’s son, etc.

Therefore, you are no different than a polytheist who worships idols. “Three” can be a reference to the trinity (in all its versions) or it can be a reference to tritheism (which many Christians ironically unknowingly affirm when they try to explain the trinity to non-Christians, because they really don’t understand it themselves).

This is the point you seem too not be getting, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT A PERSON CLAIMS, GOD DOES NOT CARE AND HE CALLS IT WHAT IT IS. Just like when He says the pagans worship stone and wood. In their minds it is not really a piece of rock or wood they are worshipping, they believe God manifests one of His many aspects of Himself into the wood or rock when they pray. It is all the same mentality of creating partners with God, justified in diffrent ways.

    • Just a minor comment. Nobody really knows what time period Joseph was in Egypt and the book of Genesis does not provide us with an absolute date. Many archaeologists, Egyptologists and Biblical scholars do not consider the Biblical narratives as reflecting history. Indeed, many scholars question the historicity of the Joseph and the Israelite’s presence in Egypt and Exodus therefrom, one reason being the lack of historical and archaeological evidence. The hypothesis that “Joseph’s pharaoh” is an anachronism, assumes that Joseph was in Egypt prior to the New Kingdom beginning in the 16 century BCE, though there is no historical evidence that would confirm or deny such a theory.

      With the lack of any historical evidence to securely anchor our chronology of the Joseph narrative it would seem imprudent to take this as an example of anachronism on which the Quran corrects the Genesis narrative.

      Like

      • Even if we can’t figure out the exact time period for Joseph in Egypt, we can certainly place his ancestor Abraham (pbut) to well before the New Kingdom. Genesis also refers to the king of Egypt in Abraham’s time as “pharaoh”.

        In any case, it is highly unlikely that Joseph was in Egypt sometime during or after the beginning of the New Kingdom.

        So in either case, the anachronism cannot be dismissed. The Bible erroneously uses the term “pharaoh” because that it was the authors were familiar with in their time. Genesis was most probably given it final form sometime around the 5th century BCE.

        True, but it shows that the Bible still uses the term anachronistically. Also, the Quran doesn’t mention Abraham being in Egypt, so it never came up, but given the clear distinction it makes between the “king” in Joseph’s time and the “pharaoh” in Moses’ time, I should think the Quran would not have made the same error as the Bible if it had mentioned Abraham being in Egypt.

        “I do not know how you came to believe it highly unlikely that Joseph was in Egypt during the New Kingdom.

I do know, however, that many of the scholars who accept the historicity of the Joseph story consider the setting to be that of the New Kingdom”

        I am going by the Biblical account. The Bible provides genealogies which can allow us to create a timeline. From Adam to Abraham, the time would be approximately 2,000 years. That would fall to around the 1900s BCE for Abraham (https://raykliu.wordpress.com/tag/bible-genealogy/). The time period between Abraham and Joseph is said to be around 300 years or so. That would place Joseph in Egypt in the 1600c BCE, which is a little earlier than the New Kingdom. So like I said, it is unlikely that Joseph would have been present during the New Kingdom period.

        “When looking through the lens of historical and archaeological evidence the claim that the Quran in the Joseph story corrects the Biblical version cannot verified and to draw such a conclusion would not seem very cautious.”

        It can if we follow the Biblical timeline. When we do that, the Bible places Joseph in the wrong period. Hence, the anachronism remains and the Quran corrects it.

        Furthermore, the views of Kitchen et al. cannot be verified either. As you pointed out, there is no known historical record of Joseph, so everything they say about when he lived would be based on conjecture.

        Let me me summarize the way I perceive the situation.

        Genesis does not provide us with absolute dates and the archaeological and historical record is silent or mute on the issue. For these, among other reasons, the few scholars who accept the historicity of Joseph’s sojourn, are divided as to its setting.

        On the above uncertain background, to make specific historical claims about the setting of Joseph’s sojourn and later correction does not appear to be methodologically sound and thus the claim you made has not been substantiated.

        Again, have misinterpreted what Hoffmeier et al. were saying. They were referring to the NK period as the actual setting for Joseph’s story. They were referring to the DATE OF COMPOSITION. Hoffmeier writes:

        “The date of composition of the Joseph story also remains in dispute. Redford’s study has convinced a number of Old Testament scholars of the lateness of the composition in the seventh or sixth century BC. George Coats opines: ‘With this contribution in view, it is now impossible to consider seriously any suggestions about a direct historical line from the story to the Egyptian court of the Rameside period.’ This enthusiastic endorsement is not shared by Kitchen, Rendsburg, Quaegebeur, Herrman, and myself, who believe a New Kingdom date is preferable.” (pp. 97-98)

        “Genesis does not provide us with absolute dates and the archaeological and historical record is silent or mute on the issue. For these, among other reasons, the few scholars who accept the historicity of Joseph’s sojourn, are divided as to its setting. ”

        I don’t think so. Hoffmeier cites Kitchen as positing a setting date from the Middle Kingdom to the Second Intermediate period. This was before the New Kingdom period. They prefer an NK date for the COMPOSITION of the story only. So, the anachronism remains and so does the Quran’s correction of it.

      • Yes, I can see that the Hoffmeier quote can be a source of confusion. I am sorry, I should have quoted a more unambiguous source.

        That is because Hoffmeier, in the quote I gave, focuses on the composition of the story. So in the quote you find both the opinion that Joseph lived prior to the New Kingdom and the opinion that the events of the Joseph story actually belong to the New Kingdom period. Whatever the case may be, let me quote a more unambiguous statement from Rendsburg himself, the second scholar mentioned by Hoffmeier:

        “The references to the land of Ramses fits in perfectly, for it is during the Nineteenth Dynasty that we first encounter the royal name Ramses. However, if we had to select a particular pharaoh whom Joseph served, our choice would be Seti I (1308-1291).”, Cyrus H. Gordon and Gary A. Rendsburg: “The Bible and the Ancient Near East, fourth edition, London 1997, p. 138.

        Vergote, an Egyptologist, also quoted on the same page by Hoffmeier (but not among the scholars in the quote I gave, perhaps because he did not engage with Redford’s study) places Joseph in the New Kingdom era (see Jozef Vergote, “Joseph en Egypte”, Louvan 1959). H. H. Rowley, a Biblical Scholar, also places Joseph in the New Kingdom period (see “From Joseph to Joshua. Biblical Traditions in the Light of Archaeology”, London 1950).

        But the point is really rather more simple. I feel you do not appreciate that the lack of direct chronological, historical, archaeological and textual evidence does not allow us to correlate the period of Joseph with an absolute date.

        I also feel that you do not appreciate that it is exactly this lack of evidence that has given rise to the many scholarly interpretations of the Joseph story and it’s place in history, if any.

        In sum, you have not securely anchored the Joseph story in history on any sound empirical, historical and methodological basis.

        I think I will not add any more comments on this issue now.

He did however note, that the word hartumim (“magicians”) appearing in Gen. 41:8 could be borrowed into Hebrew as early as the 14th century BCE, onwards contra Redford. However this may be, the quote from Hoffmeier contains both opinions”. .

        I am just beginning to reread a bit in Hoffmeier’s book and he states that Vergote did in fact later defend his position against Redford.

        Several points:

        1. To paraphrase a quote from the prophet Abraham(saw) when his people tried to threaten him with their idols:

        Nobody is scared of the partners you make with God. Why are you not scared of making partners with Him?

        Which side has more right to feel safe? It’s those who have faith, and do not mix their faith with things that are wrong, who will have peace and safety. (6:81-82)

        2. Saying Jesus Christ, al Masih is literally saying Jesus Christ Christ.

        3. We do know him and only what he claimed of himself. He is a be a prophet of God who submitted to the Lord’s will (aka a Muslim) and he was not one of the people who made partners with God.

If Jesus prayed to God he cannot be God. This is basic common sense. Even though he is a mighty prophet he is a weak pathetic god on this point alone. He was dependent on others and couldn’t save himself so how the heck is he supposed to save me?

According to Dr. Brown, God without Jesus cannotforgive sin, cannot redeem His people and cannot have a meaningful relationship with His own creations. Judaism worships God without Jesus,and according to Christianity, this is a powerless God. Christians havebeen telling Jews that if they would but worship Jesus together withGod, their troubles would end. And the Jewish response has always beenand will always remain; “Our God is all-powerful and does not need yourJesus to help Him in any way shape or form. We are suffering because ofour sins and when we repent He will restore us as He promised throughHis prophets.”

        they are using all filthy apologetics to keep the PAGAN message ALIVE AND well.

        quote:

        In response, an anonymous poet wrote a hymn celebrating the actions and character of Demetrius, associating him with the great goddess of Greece, Demeter. Here is an extract of his hymn:
        The greatest among the gods have drawn close to our city…
        Both Demeter and Demetrius…
        Hail to you, O Son of the mighty god Poseidon and of Aphrodite.
        The other gods dwell so far away,
        or else they have no ears,
        or they do not exist, or do not care at all about us
        We see you in our midst,
        not a wooden or stone presence, but bodily
        And so we pray to you… bring about peace
        for you are the Lord (κύριος)

        Notice what is said of Demetrius. He is one of the “greatest gods,” the son of God” (specifically of the gods Poseidon and Aphrodite), one who is “near” his own people – not remote, off on Mount Olympus, the one who “brings peace,” who can be called “Lord.”

        These ascriptions to Demetrius should sound familiar to anyone who knows about early Christianity, where Jesus too was known as the incarnation of a divine being, the Son of God, the bringer of peace, the Lord, and God in the flesh. My ultimate point: Jesus was not the first to be called such things, or thought to be a kind of incarnation of the divine. He had predecessors.

        + The gods in Greek and Roman thought were considered to be superhuman. Unlike, say, the (animal-shaped) gods of Egypt, the Greek and Roman gods were literally in human form. When they appeared here on earth to humans they were often “bigger than life,” but they could assume regular human form when they wanted to and they were human-shaped even when attending to their heavenly duties. In the Greek and Roman myths, they acted in human ways, they experienced the range of human emotions, they manifested human foibles, and so on.

      • Actually, it has been substantiated. If we use the Bible’s given timeline, that would place Joseph before the New Kingdom period. Thus, the use of the word “pharaoh” would be inaccurate.

        Your only argument is that since we cannot reliably determine when Joseph lived (if he even lived at all) using historical evidence, therefore, we cannot say the Quran corrected the Bible. But if we use the Biblical timeline ( in the absence of actual historical evidence), then it is clear that the Quran does correct the Bible.

        Also, regardless, it is also clear that the Quran differentiates between “king” and “pharaoh”, a minor detail about Egyptian history and culture that one would not expect a 7th century Arab merchant to know.

        And by the way, Muslims believe in both the Quran and Ahadith, so if one corrects the Bible, it’s all the same to us. 🙂

        I do not think you have substantiated the claim as you have not provided historical or archaeological evidence that can securely anchor our chronology to, say the patriarchs in Genesis. In other words, you have not linked your ca. 2000 Anno Mundi to an absolute date. If you can do that, you have substantiated your claim.

        To be clear my position is simply that we have no historical or archaeological evidence that substantiates your claim. I am not here supporting any particular understanding of Genesis that, say, has Joseph in the New Kingdom or an understanding that places him earlier than that. I am not taking sides on the issue of the scholars I quoted. I quoted Hoffmeier simply to show that of those – I suppose by now – few scholars who accept the historicity of the patriarchs many opt for a New Kingdom setting.

        It is a fair point for you if you believe in the Ahadith and in the patriarchs and so forth – I have no problem with that. But, I am not concerned here with beliefs, but the historical and archaeological record.

        I don’t know why you keep talking about “historical or archaeological evidence” when the Bible is basically the only source to mention Joseph (other than the Quran of course). So using the Biblical timeline seems perfectly reasonable. The timeline used by the Bible places Joseph before the New Kingdom period. Unless you can give some other timeline, other than vague references to some scholars, you have not made a valid point.

        Fair enough, but simply mentioning these scholars doesn’t help us get any closer to an answer. In the absence of extrabiblical sources, I wonder how Hoffmeier et al. came to such a conclusion. The only source they have is the Bible, and the uses a specific timeline which places Joseph before the NK period. I suppose it is possible that, given the proximity of the Biblical timeline for Joseph in Egypt is very close to the NK period, if we finagle the numbers, we could place him with in that period.

        “It is a fair point for you if you believe in the Ahadith and in the patriarchs and so forth – I have no problem with that. But, I am not concerned here with beliefs, but the historical and archaeological record.”

        Fair enough. My point with the ahadith was to show that you can’t fall back on the “‘there is no historical evidence” argument for Abraham and the “pharaoh”. There is no chance that Abraham (assuming he existed, which of course I believe he did) would have lived in the NK period. The ahadith do not use the term “firaun”. They simply refer to the ruler as the “king”. The story is very similar to the Genesis version, with obvious differences as well, and yet the ahadith do not repeat the Biblical anachronism. I find that astonishing.
