Jews, Christians and Muslims agreed… Not to follow The Word of God.

The Jews, hundreds of years after Moses's death created Mishnah and Gemarrah and uphold them and the invented laws in them rather than the TORAH (revealed word of God). Thus, the Jews give up on the Old Testament and never recognize the New Testament.

In the city of Nicene 300 years after the death of Jesus, the pagan Trinity was accepted, and is now the primary source of a Christian's belief in defiance of the Bible which advocates the absolute worship of God Alone. By believing in trinity the Christians denied the Father and the Son. They forbid the Holy Scripture and “speak great words against the most High … and changed times and laws… (Dan 7:25) So, the Christians ignored the Bible and went astray.

The Muslims 150- 200 years after the death of Muhammed created another source of their religion with the Qur’an, "Hadith and Sunnah", falsely attributed to the prophet Muhammed, and in defiance of the Qur’an. Today most Muslims have discarded the Qur’an in favor of Hadith and Sunnah. Some Muslims claim that the "Hadith & Sunnah" are divine revelations. Obviously, they are not aware that the criterion of divine revelations. Since the so-called Hadith & Sunnah of the Prophet have been vastly corrupted, they can never meet the criterion of divine revelation. It is an acknowledged fact that the vast majority of Hadiths are false fabrications. With small research and study you will find that as much as 99% of the Hadiths alleged for the prophet were lies and fabrications.

Among the books of hadith regarded as 'Sahih' (authentic), we read the following:

"The prophet said : "Do not write down anything from me except the Quran. Whoever wrote other than that should delete it." [Sahih Muslim, Book 42, Number 7147, also Ahmed, Vol. 1, Page 171]

Abu huraira said that the prophet said, "The 'Ummam' (nations/peoples) that preceded you have gone astary when they wrote books and upheld them besides God's scripture" (Ahmed Ibn Hanbal).

The same message is documented in other Islamic references of repute:

"Abu Huraira said : The messenger of God came to us while we were writing his sayings and said: "What is it you are writing?" we said "sayings (hadith) we hear from you messenger of God" he said, "A book other than God's book?" then Abu Huraira said, "so we gathered what we had written and burnt it all" (Taqyeed Al-Ilm, by Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdady) also (Oloom Al-Hadith, by Ibn Salah).

Most of the Muslims ignore many verses in the Qur’an talk about the veracity of the Bible and believe that the Bible has corrupted and they suppose to keep away from it. And I even witnessed a Turkish Imam ask Muslims in one of his preach not to read the Bible. He said; “reading the Bible is sin, for the Bible has undergone substantial changes”. And he even claimed to be said so in the Qur’an! However, the Qur'an does not support this claim unanimously! We see in Qur'an 3:61 and 3:64 Muslims are asked for a discussion with people of the Book and invited to investigate ways to the truth. And here we see the Muslims also ignore what the Qur’an teaches about the Bible and walk hand in hands with the Jews and the Christians and so they all agreed NOT to follow the Bible.

Let us leave the Jews and the Christians a side and see what the early Muslims think about the veracity of the Bible.

Tabari (he died in 923 AD), was one of the greatest Muslim scholars. He has written many Qur'an commentaries. Tabari asks: what were Ibrahim's faults? He sums up three lies of Ibrahim (Abraham):

“By saying: 'I am ill' to avoid worshipping idols (Qur'an 37:89).
Isn't this a white lie?
When he denied that he destroyed statues of idols, because he said God did it (Qur'an 21:63).
Again an innocent lie.
When he said that Sar'ai was not his wife, but his sister.”

You will not find event number three in the Qur'an. It is in the Bible, in Genesis 12:11-13. The great Muslim scholar was reading the Bible to answer the question!

Like Tabari, some Muslims read the Bible, because it gives a much fuller knowledge. There is a call in the Qur'an to examine and an opening to use the Gospel as source (Qur'an 10:94). We can not say the Qur'an claims to give the absolute truth about Jesus, the whole story of his life, or a definitive pronouncement. Yes, indeed, the Qur'an propounds statements of faith about Jesus, but with the intention to stimulate human study, not to give the final answer. In other words: every Muslim should overestimate his capacity by saying he has the absolute truth about Jesus. Even Mohammed was asked to question those who received the Scriptures before him:

“If you (Mohammed) doubt what we have revealed to you ask those that have read the Scriptures before you” (Qur'an 10:94).

For better understanding for more details we must sit down with those who read the Scripture and study the Scripture with them.

But we must be very carful here. When God says “ask those that have read the Scriptures” we must find and ask those who read the Scripture and do the will of God. Because they are the true believers and Muslims must study the Scripture with those people who live their life according to the Bible. Jesus made this very clear in the Bible when He said: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” (Mat 7:21) There are many Christians who call Jesus “Lord, Lord”, they have prophesied in His name, and in His name have cast out devils, and in His name done many wonderful works (Mat 7:22). Yet, Jesus will “profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Mat 7:23). Calling Jesus Lord, Lord means nothing if we do not do the "will of the Father which is in heaven”. In other words, it’s not enough to call Jesus Lord but we must do the will of the Father which revealed to us in the Scripture. We must keep His commandments. Jesus said: If ye love me, keep my commandments.  Joh 14:15 When we try to find the truth we must go to the Scripture and ask those people who keep God’s commandments. 

The Qur’an says:
“Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of Allah all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous.” Qur’an 3:113,114

The People of the Book stand for the right; they rehearse the Signs of God all night long, they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, they are in the ranks of the righteous. Lets read from Ellen White: “I met with them, and we studied and prayed earnestly. Often we remained together until late at night, and sometimes through the entire night, praying for light and studying the word.”  (White, Ellen G., “Special Testimonies,” Series B, No. 2, p. 57.) How perfectly match the verse in Qur’an describing the people of the book; Ellen White and the Pioneers!

Those who “speak great words against the most High and think to change times and laws… (Dan 7:25) are not the People of the Book.

The Bible says:
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus … Rev 17:6

The History says:
The Roman Catholic Inquisition was one of the greatest disasters ever to befall mankind. In the name of Jesus Christ, Catholic priests mounted an enormous effort to kill all "heretics" in Europe and Britain. Heretics is defined whichever way Rome wanted it defined.

Since history books have been largely rewritten, few people know specific details of this murderous campaign that lasted over 1,200 years, killing 75 million people.

There was a period in history when the Christian church did not permit the laity to have access to the Bible. Only the clergy had this privilege. Translation of the Bible into modern languages was expressly forbidden by the Catholic Church. During the early thirteenth century, copies of the Bible in the German language were burned by the order of Pop Innocent III. Several owners of the foreign Bible were imprisoned, whipped and sent to the galleys by the Roman Catholic Inquisition.

In 1452, the first printed Latin Bible, known as the Gutenberg Bible, was printed in Germany. An English Protestant reformer, William Tyndale, made a translation of the New Testament and parts of the Old Testament into English of exceptional literary quality, but he was betrayed and arrested near Brussels in 1535. He was burned as a heretic in October 1536.

The Bible was forbidden by the Christians church to the true believers for many years. We see the same satanic power now is trying to forbid the Muslims from reading the Bible by making them believe that the Bible has been corrupted. And the same Christians church who forbids the Bible to the true believers plays a big role with their satanic doctrines to convince Muslims that the Bible has been corrupted. It would be presumptuous for Muslims to believe that they know full truth about Jesus, and to refuse to pursue the way opened by the Qur'an in seeking other witnesses.

The Qur'an confirms the Gospel and refers for more information to it. Such as in 12:111. There is, in their stories, instruction for men endued with understanding. It is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it, a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy to any such as believe”.  And 5:48 “To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, CONFIRMING the scripture that came before it, and GUARDING it in safety: …”  (See also 2:41, 6:92, 10:37, 35:31 etc.)  God Himself commanded His prophet Mohammed to “ask those that have read the Scriptures before” (10:94).

The Qur’an teaches that Jesus is Kalimatullah, meaning The Word of God, Ruhullah, meaning The Spirit of God (4:171), Al-Masih, meaning The Messiah (3:45; 4.157; 4.172;  5.17; 5.72; 5.75;  9:31) Wajeeh, meaning worthy of esteem in this world and the next (3:45), Mubarak, meaning blessed (19:31). We read about His virgin birth in Qur’an (3:42-47; 19:16-31), His marvelous works (3:49; 5:110), His death, resurrection and ascension (4:157; 19:33,34; 3:55; 4:158) and we read about His second coming in (43:57-61). Every Muslim must follow God’s commandments and examine Jesus in the Gospel to know the full truth about Him.

The sacred Scripture of Islam opens a wide door for effective witness. The common testimony of both the Christian and the Muslim Scriptures to Jesus as the long awaited Supremely Anointed One provides a platform on which Christians can build the message of the Gospel and show Muslims the real meaning and implications of the title.
