Huffington Post calls on Christians to recognize Muhammad as a prophet, a post from Jihad Watch with, as always, some juicy comments

The Huffington Post, in publishing Craig Considine and now this from Ian Mevorach, illustrates what happens to Leftists when they ally with Islamic supremacists: they fall completely under their sway and begin to proselytize for Islam.

Writes Mevorach: “I do not have space in this article to explore the many Qur’anic verses directly addressed to Christians, but if we were to receive them our religion would be transformed for the better and would come into balance with Judaism and Islam.”

So apparently the problem in the world today is Christianity, in being out of “balance” with Judaism and Islam, and that “balance” can be restored or attained by encouraging Christians to “receive” the “many Qur’anic verses directly addressed to Christians.” But Mevorach, a cramped man, does “not have space” to “explore” those many verses. Mr. Mevorach, I am happy to help. Here are the principal Qur’an verses regarding Christians:

Jesus is not the Son of God, belief in the Trinity is “excess”: “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 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.” — Qur’an 4:171“It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” — Qur’an 19:35

Jesus was not crucified: “And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger — they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.” — Qur’an 4:157

Those who believe in the divinity of Christ are “disbelievers”: “They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary.” — Qur’an 5:17

Christians “forgot a good part” of the divine revelations they received: “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.” — Qur’an 5:14

Muslims should not take Jews or Christians as friends: “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.” — Qur’an 5:51

Those who believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed: “The Jews call Ezra a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! ” — Qur’an 9:30

Christians who do not become Muslims “are the most vile of created beings”: “Nor did those who were given the Scripture become divided until after there had come to them clear evidence. And they were not commanded except to worship Allah, sincere to Him in religion, inclining to truth, and to establish prayer and to give zakah. And that is the correct religion. Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the most vile of created beings.” — Qur’an 98:6

Jesus’ mission was to proclaim the coming of Muhammad: “And when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, ‘O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.’ But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, ‘This is obvious magic.’” — Qur’an 61:6

Muslims must fight against and subjugate Christians: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29

Ian Mevorach and the Huffington Post thus contend that if Christians deny the divinity of Christ and the crucifixion (and hence also the resurrection and redemption) and accept that those who hold such doctrines are under a divine curse and must be warred against and subjugated, their “religion would be transformed for the better.” That’s how deep the cultural rot goes today.

Ian Mevorach

“Did Jesus Predict Muhammad? A Biblical Portal Between Christianity and Islam,” by Ian Mevorach (“Theologian, minister, ethicist, and activist; co-founder of Common Street Spiritual Center”), Huffington Post, April 25, 2016 (thanks to Steve):

…In the history of Christianity, all of the negative terms in 1 John 4:1-6 have been used against Muhammad. He has been identified with “the Spirit of Anti-Christ” and the “Spirit of Error.” However, the time has come for Christians to recognize how wrong we have been in these assessments and to correct the record by affirmatively identifying Muhammad with “the Spirit of Truth.”

When we look at Islam as a world religion, and see that 1.6 billion people and growing are following in the way of Muhammad, the time has surely come to recognize him as a prophet. If Muhammad is not a prophet, who is? It is understandable, really, that so many Christians have been defensive and have reacted negatively to Islam. That kind of group-ego, fear-based response is part of human nature. However, it is absurd for us to continue to see Muhammad as a heretical Christian or false prophet given that Islam has lasted for nearly 1,400 years, has supported monumental cultural, spiritual, artistic, political, moral, and intellectual achievements, and has a tremendous and vibrant global following.

There is no better candidate than Muhammad, no one in fact that comes even close, in terms of fulfilling Jesus’s promise of the Spirit of Truth who would bring forth a new revelation from God. I do not have space in this article to explore the many Qur’anic verses directly addressed to Christians, but if we were to receive them our religion would be transformed for the better and would come into balance with Judaism and Islam.

Jesus knew it would be difficult for us to accept his guidance from another source. But he did not want our fear of the apparent otherness of the Prophet Muhammad and the Qur’an to separate us from the Way, the Truth, and the Life; that is, the Word of God. This is why he spoke to the disciples reassuringly about the Spirit of Truth, saying, “he will glorify me”; and, for the same reason, he emphasized the unity of his teaching with the revelations to come, twice repeating the promise, “he will take what is mine and declare it to you” (John 16:14-15, NRSV). Based on the promises of Jesus, Christians can encounter the Qur’an without fear, knowing that it is a revelation which glorifies Jesus and, in a spiritual sense, is from him….

      Mohammed’s amoral character is the greatest liability to the acceptance of Islam or to Mohammed’s recognition as a valid prophet.

      The five oldest and most trusted Islamic source texts don’t portray Mohammed as a ‘superior being’ or even vaguely‘the mercy of God among mankind’. Islam’s foundational source texts reveal that he was a plagiarist, a con artist, a highwayman, a liar, an assassin, a pedophile, a shameless womanizer, a promiscuous, cheating husband, a rapist, an enslaver, a genocidal mass murderer, a desert pirate, a psychopathic warmonger, an anti-Semite, an intolerant bigot, a spineless coward, and a calculating, ruthless tyrant.

      The portrait of Mohammed is certainly not the character profile of the saintly founder of a true religion, but that of an amoral cultist, a malignant narcissist and a scheming politician.

    So now we are to say a man who hated females and was a rapist of a child and female captives is a prophet. A man who was a brutal warlord is a prophet. Do any of theses idiots actually read the koran or do they believe what muslims tell them. There is no proof, none whatsoever, that mohammad was a prophet and no person with a conscience would make him one. Really, Hitler would make a better prophet than mohammad. Both Hitler and mohammad hated the jews, a match made in hell.

      He’s following Islamic tradition (or at least an Islamic taqiyya dawa ploy) which reinterprets the Paraclete of the Gospel of John — which has always been interpreted by Christians as referring to the Holy Spirit — as a foretelling of Mohammed.

      In looking it up just now, I was reminded that Paraclete means “Comforter”. The verb from which the noun comes (and the abstract noun form) is also mentioned in the second letter to the Corinthians:

      “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort (paraklesis), who comforts (parakaleo) us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort (parakaleo) those in any trouble with the comfort (paraklesis) with which we ourselves are comforted (parakaleo) of God.”
      2 Corinthians 1:3-4

      This in turn reminded me of a line of thought I’ve meditated upon (“meditation” in the medieval sense, of thinking deeply and carefully about something), a kind of thought experiment that explores (but not in the Mevorachian sense) the nature of Islam as an expression of Satan — even as his masterpiece effort at getting back at God. In this framework, I’ve noted how Islam turns everything good upside down and inside out; a staple of Satan in the lore about him.

      On this basis, I asked myself, what is the opposite of terror? It suddenly hit me: The opposite of terror is Comfort! Thus, Satan, in feverishly cobbling together his Anti-Gospel, took the Paraclete — the Comforter promised by Christ — and turned it into Mohammed — the Terrorist.

      And then, true to form, Satan inculcates a culture of upside-down and inside-out mischief that out-Orwells Orwellianism, through the chutzpah (how do you say that in Arabic…?) of brazenly claiming opposites: War is Peace, Hate is Love, Civil War & Chaos are Law, Sex Slavery & Pedophila are Marriage, Hell is Paradise, Satan is God, Mohammed is the Comforter…

      Along with this madness & mendacity that has been traumatizing the West for 1400 years, we now have the majority of Westerners in their politically correct, multiculturalist amnesia about Islam (as opposed to an Islamnesia we should be collectively cultivating), bending over backward to “respect” Islam as the oil-up-the-sphincter preparation to receive their former — and future — Masters up our collective asshole.

        Note: the “former” Masters in my meditation above refers to the dhimmitude that, like a spreading gangrene, penetrated and overtook large chunks of the Body of the West for centuries. This would be distinct from, but perhaps psychoculturally dovetailing with, the protracted terror & trauma inflicted by Mohammedans upon the West for a good millennium (until the West, by its own talents & genius, pulled itself up by its own bootstraps so spectacularly it was able to stride over most of the Muslim world in Colonialism) — a millennial era of terror & trauma that then morphed into collective Amnesia suppressing a collective PTSD about our former Terrorizers; and that in turn morphing into the mass neurosis of Politically Correct Multi-Culturalism we suffer under today.

          Got some news for you! Muslims pillaged and killed their way across the Middle East, Persia, India, the countries of North Africa, and Islamic Spain. They did the same thing in the Balkans and eastern Europe. They enslaved millions of every race, including blacks and the native populations. They acted as middlemen in bringing slaves to the Americas. They enslave people to this day. As for their great culture, most of it was the result of the conquered rather than Muslims. The Great Umayyad Mosque of Damascus, the al-Aqsa Mosque of Jerusalem and the Amran Mosque of Cairo were all built by Greek architects, because, apparently, the Arabs were terrible builders. (See pg. 79 in “The Myth of Andalusian Spain: Muslims, Christians, and Jews under Islamic Rule in Medieval Spain” by Dario Fernandez-Morera, an associate professor in the Spanish and Portuguese Dept. at Northwestern University.) “They tore down many others (Greek basilicas and churches) to use their superior construction materials, including marble, gold, and silver (traditional Arabic architecture used poor construction materials such as plaster, wood, and brick, evident in Andalusian palaces such as the Alhambra, and this is one of the reasons why Ibn Khaldun claimed that the constructions of the Arabs were not solidly built and quickly fell into ruins). The only reason that the Alhambra is still standing is because it was built by Christian slave labor.

      “Robert, challenge this insane man…”

      Naw…
      Google Ian Mevorach. He’s the head of his own group that has about 25 tree-huggers and drum-beaters. He’s managed to snare a few more confused followers, such as Rabbi Katy Z Allen, another tree-hugger with a rabbi certificate.

      http://www.commonstreet.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/community-drumming-picture.jpg

      These people are on the fringes of even the interfaith-friendly, hard-left religious orders like the United Methodist Church and Church of Christ.

      But, he does represent the ultimate logic of the interfaith movement. As described in Stephen Coughlin’s “Catastrophic Failure”, the interfaith movement mandates finding the common features of different religions. This philosophy is explicitly used by Islamists to compromise and transform Jews and Christians stupid enough to get involved with their program.

      The fact is, Judaism and Christianity, Christianity and Islam, and atheism and either of the other 3, are mutually-exclusive and incompatible. I as an atheist can have Jewish, Christian, or Muslim friends, but it would be insane to get together with them on “Common theological basis of atheism and Christianity”. I can meet them as friends, or even ask about their beliefs, but cannot logically try to reconcile my beliefs with theirs.

      The Muslims specifically use the interfaith movement to pave the way for Islam. The muddle-headed practitioners of interfaith can’t quite conceive that they are being consciously manipulated, so they seek a common ground by moving their own positions. The Muslims are not about to move theirs.

    “Huffington Post calls on Christians to recognize Muhammad as a prophet”

    Get lost, HuffPo. What kind of person recognizes a warlord, terrorist, murderer, sex slave owner and child rapist as a prophet?

    I don’t want to read this whole thing because I will be tempted to comment and I can’t on HP because I no longer have Facebook. How these liberals sicken me! These bigots LOATHE Christianity. They denigrate it any chance they get. But now they are shilling for Islam? You know, that religion whose followers would happily murder THEM, along with anyone else? Why don’t liberals just move to Islamic countries if they love this death cult so much? They enrage me!

    As to this bit:

    “In the history of Christianity, all of the negative terms in 1 John 4:1-6 have been used against Muhammad. ”

    Gee, maybe because it fits?

    Islam is the most anti-Christian religion on the face of the earth. It EXPLICITLY denies the most important tenets of Christianity, including the deity, death and resurrection of Christ, even to the point where it’s the worst sin to say that God has a son.

    What’s most maddening is that these liberals mock the Bible (a book they’ve never read) any chance they get… until they want to use it to make some point.

    The hypocrisy of these liberals never ceases to amaze me.

      “Islam is the most anti-Christian religion on the face of the earth. It EXPLICITLY denies the most important tenets of Christianity…”

      Islam doesn’t just explicitly deny the central tenets of Christianity; it goes further to declare those tenets capital crimes worse than murder. That — plus the military & para-military culture of Islam — pushes it over the edge from just another flaky cult into a dangerous seditious organization.

      Then when we factor in the concrete data of what Muslims have been doing and what worse things they are planning for us, we see they are waging a world war against us.

      Then, a little brushing up on history will inform us further: the world war which Muslims are waging against us now, they have been waging against us for 1,400 years. It is the Longest War (shouldn’t Time-Life get on that and produce a series of books about it, followed by a PBS special…?)

      Then, finally, when we educate ourselves about taqiyya — not only the doctrine and the culture of it in Islam, but also the concrete instances of it we have seen and reported over the years, including the devastating fact of the False Moderate (the friendly, smiling, cooperating, assimilating Muslim who would even fool many in the Counter-Jihad, later turning out to be an aider-and-abetter of violent jihad) — the horrible, catastrophic realization dawns on us that there is no Muslim demographic we can count on as not our enemy.

    Funny how the law of large numbers only works one way. 2+ billion people in the world believe that Jesus Christ was the last of the messengers of God, thus precluding muhammad from being a prophet. Worldwide, 5+ billion of people don’t consider muhammad as a prophet. As for the “and growing” bit, are they growing because non-muslim people go through a detailed, decades-long study of all of the world’s religions and conclude that islam is the one true religion or is it because overall muslim families, being dirt poor, have more kids than non-muslim families and indoctrinate them into islam?

  14. Seth Phillips says

    May 16, 2016 at 10:14 am

    Jesus was asked, “What do I need to do to get eternal life?”. He responded by saying, “You know the commandments.” “Which ones?”, the man asked. Jesus started quoting the 10 commandments, and added the pivotal “you must love your neighbor as your yourself”. One of the 10 commandments that was the pillar of true worship as instituted through the word of God by the hand of Moses, the one who referred to Jesus as “a prophet like me”, was “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” KJV Exodus 20:3. Jesus said “the son can do nothing of his own initiative”. In John 5:19 KJV Jesus is quoted as saying “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” And to Satan when challenged to worship the powerful godlike leader himself Jesus did not say that Satan was wickedly unworthy of worship even though he knew well enough he was, but instead chose to refer to a scripture and elaborating “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him ONLY shalt thou serve.” Jesus himself stressed that there was not permitted duality of worship, reinforcing the fact made clear that YHWH is a jealous God, requiring people to serve him exclusively – and why not? He is omnipotent, he alone is truly wise in that he alone knows EVERYTHING, and even his Son must trust HIM for the knowledge and power that is lacking in the Savior Jesus Christ, one “higher than the angels” and to be honored “as they honor the Father”, for he is the “high priest”. But these things and many others make clear the Trinity is a fallacy, and really, it is clear from the history of the pagan religions and of ideas present in Roman culture in particular that the idea came not from the Bible or Jesus or his followers but from the pagans. Mohumed was a false messiah, a false prophet, even an antichrist, but in opposing the Trinity, he was perfectly correct, as he was adhering to what Abraham taught Ishmael correctly, that Allah is King over all, even the Son, who likewise rightly and completely submits to in humble worship.

      It’s not unlike Satan to mix some truth in with a lie. The false doctrine of the trinity has served to omit calling on Jesus name our the name of our God during water baptism and causes worship of the one true God to be divided into the worship of 3 persons. There is one God and His one Name is Jesus, John 17:6. There is one baptism into His name and only His name for the remission of sins, Acts 22:16. There is also one Spirit which is given to us by the one promise which was given once through Peter to all that will hear, Acts 2:38-9. Without the Spirit of Jesus Christ we are not of God, nor can be God’s child, Romans 8.
      God Bless and thank you for your post.

    • Lucretius says

      May 16, 2016 at 3:36 pm

      Since the being of the Holy Trinity is one, whatever the Father wills, the Son and the Holy Spirit will also. What the Father does, the Son and the Holy Spirit do also. There is no will and no action of God the Father which is not at the same time the will and action of the Son and the Holy Spirit.

      In Himself, in eternity, as well as towards the world in creation, revelation, incarnation, redemption, sanctification, and glorification—the will and action of the Trinity are one: from the divine Father, through the divine Son, in the divine Holy Spirit. Every action of God is the action of the Three. No one person of the Trinity acts independently of or in isolation from the others. The action of each is the action of all; the action of all is the action of each. And the divine action is essentially one.

      Those passages, “the Son can do nothing of his own initiative,” “the Son can do nothing of himself but what he seeth the Father do: for what things so ever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” are proof-texts of the orthodox doctrine of the one will, one godhead, of the Trinity, and not what you say. The Trinity is one will, but the God-Man, Christ, the hypostatic union has two natures, divine and human, and likewise two wills, the proof text being the statement in Gethsemane: “If it be thy will, take this cup away from me; yet not my will but thine be done.” The divine will of the Son CAN do NOTHING of himself, that is, CANNOT be a second will differing from the Father’s and the Holy Spirit’s. But the human will of Christ can, yet submits to the divine will.

      Referring to God in the third person while talking to Satan likewise presents no difficulty, as it is the human will of Christ that speaks since only human will of Christ that can be tempted of the devil, not the Son.

    Who’da thunk it? Muhammad is the Holy Ghost! Muhammad was at Pentcost?

    How can this error be so obvious that even an Agnostic can spot it?

    But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified. (John 7:39)

    This certainly illustrates the dogmatic acceptance by Muslims of any shoddy claim created by inferior “Islamic scholars” who haven’t carefully read the Bible. It’s not surprising, then, that it only takes the rumor of a Quran defacing to get a mob of Muslims beating, stoning, and burning a woman or that many Muslims think 9/11 was a false flag Israeli operation. Without rational thought there is no skepticism.

    Sadly, many HuffPo readers are so estranged from the foundations of their society that they cannot recognize when the bricks are being replaced with outright fabrications.

      Muslims can easily take care of niggling problems — such as John 14.26 explicitly saying the Paraclete (Comforter) is the Holy Spirit wom the Father will send in Jesus’s name — as being part of the “corruption” of Allah’s word which wicked, ignorant Christians interpolated into their “corrupted” text; etc. etc. ad Islamonauseam.

      If Islam didn’t invent cherrypicking, it sure perfected it.

      John 14:26 —

      But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name…

        By the way, in the Greek, the single-letter word ” ὃ ” (translated into English properly as “whom”) is explicitly referring to aperson, not a concept or thing — to wit: the Person, the Holy Spirit (τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον ). I.e., the text is referring to the Holy Spirit as a person, grammatically. In order to make it a concept or thing, it would have said “τὸν ” (= “which”) not ” ὃ ” (= “whom”).

    “(John 16:14-15, NRSV). Based on the promises of Jesus, Christians can encounter the Qur’an without fear, knowing that it is a revelation which glorifies Jesus and, in a spiritual sense, is from him….”

    From the earliest days of the Church till the present time this verse of scripture means only one thing; that is the coming of the Holy Spirit. I don’t think any medieval monk, Catholic scholar, charismatic mega-church, evangelical pastor nor any Doctor of Divinity from any age would apply any other meaning to this verse of scripture. To associate this scripture with Muhammad or the Q’ran must be about the most delusional piece of wishful thinking that the Huffington Post has ever come out with ever.

    Ad populum argument. Something must be true because many people believe it.

    “It is understandable, really, that so many Christians have been defensive and have reacted negatively to Islam. That kind of group-ego, fear-based response is part of human nature.”

    That psychobabble is just red herring. There are many good reasons why Christians reject Islam and Muhammad (https://www.thecatholicthing.org/2012/01/28/aquinas-on-islam/)

    “However, it is absurd for us to continue to see Muhammad as a heretical Christian or false prophet given that Islam has lasted for nearly 1,400 years, has supported monumental cultural, spiritual, artistic, political, moral, and intellectual achievements, and has a tremendous and vibrant global following.”

    Someone do the little research I did on the Bible. God wrote the Bible, Mohammed,the man wrote the Qur’an..
    The Bible, with the Hebrew Old Testament Text and the original Greek New Testament does things that no other religious text of any other World Relationship between God and Mankind does; demonstrating that only the Creator could have, through 44 inspired writers, written this book. The scribes who copied the original Hebrew Old Testament text copied carefully every letter, jot and tittle. As they read the copied text, if a single letter, jot, or tittle mistake was made, they would destroy all that had been written and start over.

    Ivan Panin, a Harvard Hebrew, Greek, and Mathematical Scholar researched the numerical values of the Hebrew and Greek letters. He sent 43,000 pages of numerical research to the Nobel Research Committee in 1900, and they could not refute the fact that God through 44 inspired writers wrote the Bible.

    Del Washburn has written two books expanding on the numerical values, “Theomatics” and “Theomatics II”. (Seehttp://www.biblecode.com ).

    The most amazing proof that the Creator of the Universe wrote the Bible through the inspired men of God is the Equidistant Letter Sequences. The NSA tried to duplicate such coding and failed. Harold Gans, the lead code breaker for the NSA, before he died, satisfied himself that God wrote the Bible, by using a mathematical formula to determine the probabilities involved in creating codes throughout the surface text of the Old Testament (www.biblecodedigest.com ). Through the code, the multitude of information reads like yesterdays news–you must know the names, events, persons involved, locations, and/or the dates. For this reason it can not be used prophetically.

    The original text of the Old and New Testament with the letter numeric values and the multitude of Equidistant Letter Sequences should be enough to prove to anyone that the God of the Bible, is our Creator. There are thousands of words, names, sentences and locations encoded in the Old Testament. If you are thinking that some super intelligence wrote this book other than God, God reminds you from Numbers 23’19”, “God is not a man that He should lie….” No human or computer can duplicate anything resembling the quantity of ELS coding in surface text like the Bible does. There are even codes between books, God knowing which books would be canonized. Where there have been codes in other translated books, they get left behind when you get to 7 letter words and full sentences.

    In Ezekiel 36′ 25″-27″ it describes God’s way of salvation–“I will remove your stoney heart and give you a heart of flesh (being born again and receiving Jesus as your Savior), I will sprinkle you with water and make you clean (water baptism), and put my Spirit in you to cause you to walk in my laws and statutes (receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit).

Note: even the writer of “September 11 is in the Bible Code” , Dr. Larry Mitcham, his name is coded in the Bible. *:) happySo are Carl Baugh and a few others who have researched the codes.

    Ivan Panin corrected an Exhaustive Bible Concordance using what he called the Bible Numerics. He said if there were 2 words found in the Greek New Testament in a sentence and you wanted to know which word to use, the word that harmonized with the sentence numerically was the correct word. He provided a Greek Numeric New Testament. Example of Bible Numerics: In the first sentence in the Old Testament, Genesis 1’1″, every verb is divisible by 7, every noun, and more; there are over 34 features of the number 7 in just this one sentence and these type features are consistent throughout the Bible.

    Just a very few of the codes (and there are more being found every day–www.biblecodedigest.com) found: Hitler, Holocaust, Eichmann, Fuhrer, Meinkampf, Berlin, Germany, Belson, King of the Nazis, Crematoria for my Sons, (for statistical purposes only-there are more) 66 names of Rabbis-the cities in which they lived-dates of death (that came from the Book “The Great Men of Israel), Anwar Sadat-1981-parade-shot-gunfire-Chaled (his assassin), Yitzchak Rabin-Israel-will be murdered-date born-date of death-location of the assassination-assassin’s name-Oslo Peace Process, both Wars in the Gulf, George Bush, Saddam Hussein-America Schwarzkopf-the missiles will terrify-Scud B-they shut the door-3rd of Shevat, empty the gas, Murrah Building-Tim-McVeigh-slaughter-desolate, (in Genesis 38′) all the ancestors of King David, (in Genesis)25 trees are named, (between Isaiah 52′ and 55′) Behold the Blood of Jesus-Let Him Be Crucified-Mary-Joseph-Jesus is my Name-all the disciples names,Nazarene, Messiah, Shiloh, Passover, Galilee, Herod, Annas, Caiaphas Caesar, The evil Roman City, (in Zechariah 9’13”)Jesus, (in Zachariah 11’13”)Jesus, (in Daniel 9’26”) The Peace Offering, (in Micah 5’1-2″ Mary, Joseph, and Jesus(Yeshua),(in Matthew 24’7 through 48″) Jesus, Nazareth, Mercy, Lamb, (in Mark 8’9″ through Mark 9’2″) Jesus, Blood, Son, Innocent, Lamb, (in John 5’5″-13″) Jesus, Nazareth, Lamb, the name of the person most responsible for all the satellites circling the Earth and their names—–and on and on and on and on. I don’t think all of the codes will be found.

    Mr. Pretty Vacant is a heretic and for all intents and purposes now a Muslim. In an article in something called “New Age Islam” he quotes Qur’an 61:6, not as the Christian heresy it is, Jesus came only to proclaim Muhammad, but: “in this verse we have a vision of Jesus that affirms both Judaism and Islam; this is the vision of Jesus I believe that Christians are being called by God to adopt in the 21st century.”

    Mevorach identifies himself with Dietrich Bonhoeffer who “disavowed Christian anti-semitism and embraced the fact that Jesus Christ was a Jew” when Hitler came to power. Apparently, Jesus, while being a Jew, was also a Muslim and now Christian “Islamophobia” fuels the new Nazism, Islamophobia, with Muslims as the new Jews ready for the ovens. “Now we have a xenophobic mood in this country that reminds people of the rise of Nazism in Germany…today, Christian leaders of conscience are called to take a vocal stand against Islamophobia. We are called to root Islamophobia out of our religion before it leads to another genocidal catastrophe.”

    “Christian Islamophobia has deep roots. In the oldest Christian writings on Islam, St. John of Damascus’ Against Heresies (8th century CE), Muhammad is presented as a heretic inspired by the devil; Islam itself is categorized as a Christian heresy. ” {St. John of Damascus clearly understood Islam deeply}

    “Now, in the 21st century, it is high time for Christians to acknowledge how wrong we have been. Islam is the second-largest religion on the planet and is an integral part of human civilization as we know it. Islam is a beautiful, complex religion that supports human dignity, arts and sciences, spirituality, economic, environmental and racial justice, and so much more.” {Islam is not a heresy because…it has
    numbers? Didn’t it have numbers back when Christians called it a heresy? The rest “Islam is a beautiful etc….” is certifiable. This is crackpot da’wa, if you want the truth reverse everything said.}

    “Just as Bonhoeffer embraced the fact that Jesus Christ was a Jew, thus identifying himself as a Christian with and for Jews, so too Christians today have the opportunity to identify ourselves with and for Muslims by positively identifying Jesus with Muhammad. The foundation of Christian Islamophobia (fear of Islam) is a rejection of Muhammad as a spirit of error; the foundation of Christian Islamophilia (love of Islam) is an embrace of Muhammad as a spirit of truth.”
    http://www.newageislam.com/interfaith-dialogue/ian-mevorach/muhammad-as-spirit-of-truth–a-christian-testimony-against-islamophobia—part-one/d/107123

    Christlam. If Muhammad is the spirit of truth then the Gospels are a lie. Judaism and Christianity are abrogated by Islam, but why spoil the ecumenical party?. Biblical history becomes Islamic history, Including the history of Israel and the Jews because Islam is a replacement theology. That too is part of jihad, removing the obstacles to the spread of Islam. As is hiding the real history of the bloody jihad and the persecution and sufferings of the People of the Book under dhimmitude. Doesn’t fit the narrative. In fact, Christlam undoes Bonhoeffer, because it is the Muslim mission to strip Christianity of its Jewish roots. Deconstructing Christianity, Judeo-Christianity, and western civilization with the help of useful idiots like Ian Mevorach.

    If one does not know the doctrine of Christianity how can they discuss what is correct or incorrect regarding the faith?
    Do you know that Christ sends to us His Spirit from heaven by a promise of Acts 2:38-39 to anyone who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and was crucified to redeem us from sin?
    With redemption from sins through water baptism calling on Jesus name, and the Spirit being a guarantee of eternal life and power in this life for those that walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh (Romans 8:1), a Christian need not look further for the God who is Salvation, for the God who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, for the God who is the Resurrection, for the God who has revealed the name by which we all must be saved, the name which is higher than any other name, the name of the family in heaven, and the name of the family on Earth for those that have chosen to be adopted by the Father of Jesus Christ by obedience to His Gospel of Acts 2:38-39. If anyone preaches a different Gospel of God and Salvation they will be accursed. In Jesus Holy Name, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess one thing, that Jesus Christ is Lord who alone is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, and there is no other God besides Jesus Christ.
    A Christian knows Jesus is God( they do not hope ), and that this is the beginning of the knowledge that takes us safely into eternity. The road is narrow and there be few that find salvation, so you must seek truth with a pure heart, and ask Jesus to reveal to you who is God, and Jesus, who sits on the throne of God with all power in heaven and earth will bless you with understanding that He alone saves, and He alone is God. Follow Acts 2:38-39 to be saved for without the Spirit you are not Christ’s, and anyone that claims Jesus Christ is not God manifest in the flesh has not sought any truth in this life by petitioning our Creator. In Jesus name I pray for those that will repent and find an Apostolic Church to continue their life’s journey toward the eternal fellowship we will enjoy with Jesus Christ or Lord, Jesus Christ our God, and Jesus Christ our Savior, as co-inheritors of all that our Lord Jesus Christ has inherited from the Father, for the Christian Church and the Christian Church alone is the Bride of Christ, and we shall be like Him and we shall have all things in common with our glorious God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

      According to the Sira, Muhammad did prophesy at least one thing: that Islam would conquer Arabia, then the East, then the West. That prophecy, unfortunately, has been coming true for 1400 years. Certainly for the first thousand years after Islam was spawned it seemed powerfully coming true, with a stupendous empire conquered rivaling that of Alexander the Great’s and the Roman. By the 17th century, however, Islam began to falter, while the West was stupendously progressing — so much so that by the 18th century, Europe was colonizing nearly the entire Muslim world, and by the 19th easily owned it and told Muslims what to do (tragically, the Western Colonialists underestimated the fanaticism of Islam, and didn’t take that golden opportunity to disable Islam when it had the chance).

      Anyway, fast forward to the 20th century, Muslims have been busy beavers, laying the groundwork by hook (terrorism) and by crook (stealth jihad) for a global revival of their perennial jihad against the world — prophesied by Muhammad. Then came the pivotal climax, 911 — the salvo heard around the Muslim world — and the last 15 years has been a steady uptick for that global revival, with an enormous boost of Useful Idiocy by stupid Westerners ever since.

It’s like saying that “yes” and “no” have the same meaning …. which would also mean that lying and telling the truth do not really matter. It means there is no such thing as right or wrong, good or evil …. and if there is no such thing as good or evil then any religion which teaches such an idea is false. But then, there is no such thing as true or false, is there? What the ??????? This man is making the argument for the belief that everything is meaningless ……. even his own argument.

      CES writes: ” It would mean that there is no such thing as a contradiction”.

      That question is raised by the Law of Non-Contradiction.

      In logic, the law of noncontradiction (also called the law of contradiction) states, in the words of Aristotle, that “one cannot say of something that it is and that it is not in the same respect and at the same time”.

      The Muslim philosopher Avicenna wrote: “Anyone who denies the law of non-contradiction should be beaten and burned until he admits that to be beaten is not the same as not to be beaten, and to be burned is not the same as not to be burned.”

      Avicenna’s works are condemned by modern mullahs because he rejected abrogation and dualism.

      What Ian Mevorach believes: “Freedom—we are a non-creedal community of faith where each person is free to discern and express what he or she believes.”

      The real creed of the Common Street Spiritual Center appears to be what is called ‘radical universalism’, the doctrine that teaches that ‘all religions are basically the same’. His creed is a spiritualized for of cultural Marxist ideology…a secularized, New-Agey, feel-good ‘spirituality’ mixed with non-fattening Marxism and Buddhist chanting… not discernably ‘Christian’ in any theological manner.

      ‘Radical universalism’ as a philosophy is self-refuting, because all of the world religions contradict one another in fundamental ways and ‘radical universalism’ contradicts ALL the others by claiming that they are not contradictory. This refutes the thesis that all religions are the same because ‘radical universalism’ is unique and different.

      What Ian Mevorach and his ‘feel-good’ groupies fail to recognize is that, though many world religions contain a version of the Golden Rule, Islam does not. Not anywhere. Islam is based on a dual code of ethics, one for supporting fellow Muslims and a second code for the subjugation of kafirs. Most humans are kafirs and the Koran hates kafirs passionately. Two-thirds of the Koran says that Allah hates them and wishes Muslims to stop their rebellion. Only Muslims who kill these rebels or get killed while attacking kafirs are assured salvation.

      I encourage Ian Mevorach to verify the lack of an Islamic Golden Rule himself by searching for a clear Islamic expression of the Golden Rule, but I don’t think he will do the search, because it will overthrow his ‘radical universalism’. He will likely continue to ‘assume’ that ‘radical universalism’ is true even though I have shown how it refutes itself.

      How can Koran 48.29 be reconciled with the Golden Rule? It can’t.

Jesus is just another ‘poet’ for them…to be quoted when they like it, and ignored when a contradiction comes up. In the manner of Hinduism, they have no problem putting contradictory ‘poets’ on the same shelf together. It’s only poetry…or song lyrics…not ‘real’ prophecy that we’re talking about here. Heck, let’s put Mohammed on the shelf with the others. We’ll ignore the pedophilia thing.

They envy the infidels for their appreciation of their quality of life. Mushead Muhammad’s cult can not be comfortable with the truth about themselves.

    This is exactly the thing about which Jesus warned us. Any Christian worth his or her *salt* will not believe what this idiot is saying.
    The Bible says that there would not be anything *added* to God’s Word when it was finished and that the one adding…or taking away…would be cursed.
    As the days of the end of this system under which we are living grow ever shorter, the warnings Jesus gave are even more valuable and important to us. We have to avoid being pressured into believing lies.

    “Christians recognize Muhammad as a prophet?” Never! Christ is my king and savior, he loved all man and died to save their souls.
    Muhammad was a murderer, rapist, and a monster. That man was no messenger of God and I will never see him as one.

    I do not have space in this article to explore the many Qur’anic verses directly addressed to…

    … the murder of Jews and Christians, and other types of Infidels. There is just not enough space here. But if we could accept these calls for mass murder and terror, but if we were to receive them our terror prevention costs would plummet along with our terror caused death rate.

    Well, I am a Christian and I most certainly DON’T recognize Mohamed as a prophet! Nor will I ever!

    Hello Mr. Mevorach! There are all the jihad verses that you will need to follow the example of Mohammed.

    Nothing will have you scurrying back to connect with your biblical roots faster than an education in Islam. Once you identify who Mohamed’s Gabriel actually was, everything that has happened since then becomes crystal clear.

    Mevorach wants to bring Christianity ‘into balance’ with Islam and Judaism…presumably through dropping the central Christian doctrine of the Trinity.

    If Mevorach is thinking of a Koranic verse directed specifically to Christians it would be this one:

    “So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not, ‘Three,’ Refrain; better is it for you. God is only One God. Glory be to Him” (Sura al-Nisa’ 4:169).

    Without the doctrine of the Trinity and the Apostles’ Creed, Christianity isn’t Christian.

    Mevorach has a creed in mind, but refuses to tell people what it is. This is dishonest.

One Response to Huffington Post calls on Christians to recognize Muhammad as a prophet, a post from Jihad Watch with, as always, some juicy comments

  1. θ says:

    Prophet Muhammad is the Prophet of God who teaches the truth that God was the maker of the Word.
    John 1:1 literally reads “God was the Word.” Hence it cannot be read contrarily as the Word was God.
    The same pattern is in John 1:4 that says “the Life was the light of men.” Hence it can’t be read as the men’s light was Jesus (the Light) in the same nature.

    In a nutshell, John 1:1-4 tell a similarity that the Word comes from God just like the light of men comes from Jesus. It doesn’t mean the Word is God since the men aren’t Jesus either.
