  1. ISIS, Boko Haram and other terrorist organizations that using Islam for their action are not Islamic and against Islamic teaching. Therefore we are as Muslim must stand up in the first line to speak up against them.

  2. Very good Paul. I commend you on this.

    It seems to me that all of this problem with those Muslims you have pointed out – and also others on other issues – namely your frustration with other Muslims also on other issues (not terrorism or violence, but other things – hypocrisy ?, control behind the scenes?, hiding or suppressing videos, etc. ?) (your comments and problems with Adnan Rashid and Abdullah and MDI, etc. – and your comments about Metanoia (Repentance) Taubeh, توبه (we have that in Farsi, coming from the Arabic) 😉

    all of this shows that the Bible and Christianity is right about mankind in his/her heart / soul / inner person – as C. S. Lewis wrote – “The Christians are right – the root of sin is pride or arrogance or self-conceit” – Mere Christianity, “The Great Sin” – read the whole chapter – everyone. Original sin and corruption in the heart / soul / mind – selfishness, pride, arrogance, etc.

    The Bible is correct is about the corruption of the heart of humans.

    Genesis 6:5

    Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    Mark 7:20-23

    And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride [arrogance, conceit, self-centered selfishness] and foolishness. 23 All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.”

    Jeremiah 17:9
    “The heart is more deceitful than all else
    And is desperately sick;
    Who can understand it?

    Only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ [the full message of the New Testament] can the sickness and evil of the heart of man be changed.

    John 3:1-21
    Ezekiel 36:26-27
    Mark 1:15 – repent and believe the gospel

    Mark 10:45 & Mark 14:24 – must trust in the final atoning sacrifice / ransom for sin – even the Qur’an unwittingly points to this in Surah 37:107

    • Ken Temple, maybe you forget, Jesus (pbuh) is one of the Islamic prophet. We are following Jesus’s teaching and not only that we are following all of the prophet’s teaching from Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them).
      All of the prophet’s teaching came from one source, Allah. Now, we have the last and final teaching from Allah that was revealed to Muhammad (pbuh) as the last messenger of Allah, its called Quran which is valid forever until the judgement day.
      The duty of Muslim is just to follow Quran and Hadits and pass these messages to others. It’s not our duty to convert someone to become a Muslim.
      And we are not worried about Quran because Allah himself would take care of it.

      • Jesus (pbuh) is one of the Islamic prophet.
        This is an anachronistic claim that has no basis in historical fact. The Qur’anic Jesus never existed; it is 600 year late construction out of Muhammad’s mind (or with others who compiled things together). The Qur’an shows no knowledge of the previous Scriptures – mostly the good aspects that it got were within the apocryphal gospels and heretical sects and Jewish Midrash (mixture of exaggerations from OT).

        We are following Jesus’s teaching . . .
        You claim to; but you don’t really. Ignoring the teachings of the NT is ignoring the true Injeel.

        . . . and not only that we are following all of the prophet’s teaching from Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them).

        Even that is wrong – because there is a lot that is ignored from the OT (Tanakh), with claims that the Jews lied and changed their Scriptures.

        Man, that’s embarrassing.

        Next the Quran actually quotes previous Scriptures so once again you’ve shown not only not to know you’re religion but others as well.

        The NT is NOT the Gospel again even in your theology:

        And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. (Matthew 4:23 )

        Was he(as) reading Timothy, Romans, Galatians etc? No.

        Finally, please stop talking about politics as you have been shown time and time again on this blog to be retarded concerning the subject. (Again to show your ignorance not arguing with God does not extend to the Caliph that was you all who gave the Pope that authority. Also I find it funny you always like to take credit for the West (which is secular btw) but never acknowledge when it does wrong. Why is that I wonder?)

  3. What you did Paul was point out hypocrisy – and it seems that in order to defend Islam in the west, many Muslims don’t know how to respond to your asking questions and pointing out hypocrisy.

    Surah 5:101(don’t ask too many questions – it will distress and upset and hurt you) and 33:36 (cannot question Muhammad’s decision in a matter) created environment in Islam against asking too many questions.

    Many Muslims have told me this.

    It would be dangerous to allow some kind of authority like a Caliphate, etc. anymore, because of this problem of not questioning Islam.

    The leaders of Iran (Ayatollah Khomeini and others) (even though Shiite, the same mentality is all over Muslim world) have said, “it is ok to lie and do other sins in order to defend Islam” (there are several YouTube videos documenting this) – that attitude is prevalent among Muslim leaders. The examples of other dictators all over middle east, etc. is the same basic thing – Saudi, Hafez Al Assad and Bashir Al Assad, Mobarak in Egypt, Saddam Hussein, etc.

    But the west has centuries long development of accountability systems – there are checks and balances (beginning with Magna Carta, Bill of Rights, US Constitution, separation of powers, European Parliamentary systems, 3 branches of government in US that provide checks and balances and also freedom of religion and freedom of the press to expose secrets and lies when government is complicit and guilty.) built in after centuries of learning that the heart of man (humans) is evil and there must be accountability.

In Christianity, is ok to struggle and question, but it not ok to demand (the book of Job, etc.). It is not right to question in the sense of rebelling against God’s commandments or principles. But Islam claims almost equal status for Muhammad to God; in Surah 33:36

        It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear error.”

        Since we find it ridiculous that Muhammad is a prophet or anything of divine revelation coming 600 years later with a subjective claim and then anachronistically claiming to be the same as OT prophets and NT Jesus but cutting out most of NT, etc. yet retaining Jesus’ virgin birth, Islam seems crazy . . . also, all the unjust wars and treatment of women and Hadith crazy things like dipping a fly into your food or drink, etc. the Hadith about pulling out during sex before ejaculation with the sex slaves, captives of war, etc. – all of this combines together as demonstrating your religion is false; and so, yeah, I question the decisions of your false god and false prophet.

      To reject the messenger of God is akin to rejecting God himself. The same is true for any human prophet. It doesn’t mean equating them to God it means obeying what God has sent down. If I’ve misunderstood something or said something in error i’m sure the other muslims on the blog will correct me.

      “Since we find it ridiculous that Muhammad is a prophet or anything of divine revelation coming 600 years later with a subjective claim and then anachronistically claiming to be the same as OT prophets and NT Jesus but cutting out most of NT, etc. yet retaining Jesus’ virgin birth, Islam seems crazy . . . also, all the unjust wars and treatment of women and Hadith crazy things like dipping a fly into your food or drink, etc. the Hadith about pulling out during sex before ejaculation with the sex slaves, captives of war, etc. – all of this combines together as demonstrating your religion is false; and so, yeah, I question the decisions of your false god and false prophet.”

      Look Ken, it’s fine you don’t believe that Muhammad(s.a.w) is a prophet(well ok not FINE fine but hopefully you get what i’m trying to say) But the thing you objected to in you’re initial comment was not being allowed to question a prophets (and by extension God’s) ruling and authority. Now based on you’re reply you seem to understand why that argument doesn’t work. My question is why would you even use an argument that also hinders Christianity?

      “On judgement day, Jesus, the God-man, will justly slay all unbelievers. 2 Thessalonians 1, Revelation chapter 19 – He will wage righteous just war.”

      And this if different from the just war theory in islam how?

      Also since we’re on the topic of the “godman” I have some questions that you forgot to answer that I’d like you to reply to when you have the time

      B. When you worship the “godman” is he still fully human when receiving worship?

        A. Jesus is one unified person when He said, “I am” – but obviously that is a claim to be Yahweh ( I am that I am) and so it is only about His Divine Nature, even though He is one unified person.

      so the human nature said the “I AM” statements but applied it only to the divine nature? you realize this makes it impossible to claim the “I AM” statements (if they even happened) are proofs of divinity right? for example let me give you two scenarios-

      1.a human Jesus(a.s) says the “I AM” statements but with the intention that they are applied to the father.

      2. a human Jesus(a.s) says the “I AM” statements but only because the father is speaking through him and is actually the one saying them.

      also some Christians are of the opinion that you don’t worship the natures, you worship the persons themselves.

    yes in Christianity jesus(as) is considered a prophet dumb@$$:

    Yes, I never said Jesus was not a prophet. I said Jesus is not an Islamic prophet, as revelation ceased with the closing of the NT when the last book was written around 96-100 AD. (whether Revelation or Jude) 2 Peter was written in 67 AD, as was 2 Timothy. Hebrews 68 AD. Mark 45-55, Matthew 55-60; Luke 60-61 AD, Acts 62, etc.

    But Jesus is more than a prophet, as the NT clearly says.

    John 1:1-4, John 1:14-18, etc. 20:28
    Philippians 2:5-8
    Colossians chapter 1
    Hebrews chapter 1
    Gospel according to John – all through
    Mark 1:1-2; 2:28; 14:60-64

    • The New Testament is written by fallible men. According to most historians it contains forgeries. Religious dogmatists such as Ken impose their ideology onto the texts, rejecting objective scholarship and historical evidence. Of all men they are most to be pitied.

      • Yes, fallible men but what they wrote in the 27 books of the NT is “God-breathed”, therefore infallible. Infallibility is only about the Scriptures / writings, not the men themselves.

        Religious dogmatists such as Paul Williams (and all other orthodox Muslims, whether Sunni or Shiite), impose their 600 late theology and texts anachronistically back into the OT and NT (rejecting most of it) and use anti-supernatural presuppositions of modern scholars to bolster their vacuous claims. Objective scholarship and historical evidence demonstrates that Jesus Christ was and is the Messiah, Son of God, fulfiller of the prophecies and shadows of the sacrificial system of OT, and was crucified, dead, buried, under Pontius Pilate, and on the 3rd day, rose with power from the dead.

      • Actually, 2 Timothy 3:15 is about the OT and the next verse expands it to “all Scripture”, which includes the NT. Paul put the NT with equal authority with the Torah in 1 Tim. 5:17-18 by quoting both as Scripture. The principle is there for the other books written after 67 AD – since Jesus Al Masih promised that the Holy Spirit would lead the disciples into all the truth – John 14, 15, 16.

      • Wrong. The canon of the Jewish Bible had not been fixed in Jesus’ day, so it is anachronistic to say it is identical with the Protestant version you use. Furthermore, even on the erroneous assumption that Paul wrote 1Timothy he could not have had in mind all those NT books that had yet to be written – eg all the gospels etc. The quote from John is irrelevant considering I am focusing only on Paul’s statement and your total misinterpretation of it.

      • Yes, the canon of the Jewish Bible was fixed, as the Jews (“our Rabbis laid up the books in the temple” – see Beckwith below), Josephus (Against Apion 8, is the same as Protestant canon; as also confirmed by Jerome and 99 % by Athanasius – Athanasius left out Esther), and others have confirmed. This is treated very scholarly by Roger Beckwith’s book (see below) and several articles give us the main content.

Jesus in Luke 11:51-52 (from the blood of Abel = Genesis, to the blood of Zechariah = Chronicles (the last book in the Hebrew Bible) – proves the Protestant position correct. confirms Josephus, the Rabbis, and later, what Jerome wrote. Also Cardinal Cajetan (the guy who interviewed and opposed Luther, sent by the Pope to investigate Luther, etc.) in the 1500s agreed, “all conclusions are to be reduced to the findings of Jerome on this issue”.

      First off, this wouldn’t refute him not being an “Islamic prophet” dumb@$$. But please allow me to teach you your religion again. Prophecy has NOT ceased according to Christianity:

      3And I will empower my two witnesses, and they will PROPHESY for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”

      4These witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.a 5If anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouths and devours their enemies. In this way, anyone who wants to harm them must be killed. 6These witnesses have power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall during the days of their PROPHECY, and power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish.

      7When the two witnesses have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will wage war with them, and will overpower and kill them. 8Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city—figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where their Lord was also crucified. 9For three and a half days all peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will view their bodies and will not permit them to be laid in a tomb. 10And those who dwell on the earth will gloat over them, and will celebrate and send each other gifts, because these two PROPHETS had tormented them. (Revelations 11:3-10)

      I’m sorry two what? And just so you don’t go into whatever stupid ramble your planning word used in Greek is προφήτης (prophétés) which is used whenever quoting things like “thus spoke the prophet”

      Next no one cares what your later heretical authors getting their mouths torn open in Hell state. The church of Jerusalem clearly states the Islamic position prophet, messiah not divine so there is no anarchism.

      • Tertullian believed in this:

        Montanism, known by its adherents as the New Prophecy, was an early Christian movement of the late 2nd century, later referred to by the name of its founder, Montanus.

        Montanism held similar views about the basic tenets of Christian doctrine to those of the wider Christian Church, but it was labelled a heresy by some for its belief in new prophetic revelations. The prophetic movement called for a reliance on the spontaneity of the Holy Spirit and a more conservative personal ethic. Parallels have been drawn between Montanism and modern-day movements such as Pentecostalism and the charismatic movement. source Wiki

        Sooooo… in your mind a letter to a church telling it to act right is something that should be written and declared Scripture but not a “modern” revelation of God to two new prophets? Alright…

        Jude 3 counters nothing

        Hebrews actually hurts you, not helps lol. First off it does NOT say, apostles:

        1On many past occasions and in many different ways, God spoke to our fathers through the prophets. 2But in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son,a whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe.b

        https://biblehub.com/bsb/hebrews/1.htm#fn

        That means the writers of NT are NOT receiving revelation so their words mean nothing as the anonymous author of Hebrews did not indicate they were receiving revelation.

        Next this “inspired” author quotes Psalm 2:7 which refutes your beliefs:

        I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; TODAY I have become your father.

        The Son (who is obviously David(as) in context but let’s run with it) TODAY become the Son therefore the Son is created and thus not God.

        You cannot extend Revelation to the entire NT as it is
        1. A separate text
        2. Almost didn’t even make it in
        3. Shows th amount of forgeries going around that the author had to pplace the “warning” to not mess with it.

        And you don’t know the church of Jerusalem? I’ll keep it simple 1st century Christians who were led by James and the Disciples who Jesus(as) actually preached to didn’t believe in your paganism and declared Paul a heretic. Let that sink in…

  8. From my article above, which got info from Paul Williams’ old blogs.
    The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Whoever does indecency, let him veil his acts with the veiling of God and let him make repentance.” He also said, “Whoever comes to our faces and admits them, then we will punish them.” (Hamza Yusuf)
    The emphasis in the above is on the one act of sin. Islam emphasizes external sins – like adultery, rather than dealing with the root (s) of sin, the sinful nature within, and the evil thoughts and motives that spring from that. And since adultery is punishable by death in Islam, then the result is that there is lots of hiding and covering up and hypocrisy. As Jonathan Brown said in a lecture (I will have to track it down; as it was at Paul Williams old site) – “the Islamic Caliphs didn’t care what you did in private” (from memory)
    I asked Paul Williams for the Hadith reference for this, and he never gave it. ”

    Shows that same tendency to not expose the sins of the other Jihadist Muslims.

  9. Ken Temple, sorry off topics but since you are here I have a question for you. What is your opinion / explanation about Matthew 7:21-23:
    21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven. Only those who do what my Father in heaven wants will enter. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord! Lord! Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we drive out demons in your name? Didn’t we do many miracles in your name?’ 23 Then I will tell them clearly, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who do evil!’

    In my opinion no one does that but only Christians do everything in the name of Jesus and also it seems Jesus denies that he is God in judgment day .

    I’m just curious and I want to know from Christian perspective.
