Muslims, we do not embrace the pedophilia, rape, terrorism and all of the other forms of
evil that exist in the Bible, nor do we believe that the Prophets
of Allah Almighty, peace and blessings be upon all of them, ever committed such cruel acts
that are falsely attributed to them.
punished with death in the New Testament!

her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.And I will kill her children

shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every
one of you according to your works.
christians try to hide the fact that this verse adresses the children of the
adulteress , however many bible commentators admit honest the true meaning of this
verse(supported by the scripture itself)
1-Proof from Classical Bible Commentaries:
Bible Commentary: Jamieson, Fausset, Brown :
23. her children--(Isaiah 57:3,
23:45,47). Her proper adherents; not those who suffer her, but those who are
begotten of her. A distinct class from the last in Revelation
2:22 (compare Note, direct, being that only of connivance.
Bible Commentary: Robertson's Word Pictures of the New
Revelation chapter 2, Verse 23:I will kill with death (apoktenw
en qanatwi). Future (volitive) active of apokteinw with the tautological
(cognate) en qanatwi (in the sense of
pestilence) as in Ezekiel
33:27. Her children (ta tekna auth▀). Either her actual children, like the fate of Ahab's
sons (2 Kings
10:7) or "her spiritual progeny" (Swete) who have completely
accepted her Nicolaitan practices. Shall know (gnwsontai). Future (ingressive
punctiliar) middle of ginwskw, "shall come to
know." "The doom of the offenders was to be known as widely as the scandal had
been" (Charles). Searcheth (eraunwn). Present active
articular participle of eraunaw, to follow up, to track
out, late form for ereunaw, from Jeremiah
17:10. Reins (neprou▀). Old word for kidneys,
here only in N.T., quoted also with kardia▀ from Jeremiah
17:10. See Revelation
22:17 for the reward of punishment.
John Wesley's Explanatory Notes on the Whole Bible , The Book of Revelation Chapter 2:
2:23 And I will kill her
children - Those which she hath borne in
adultery, and them whom she hath seduced. With death - This expression denotes
death by the plague, or by some manifest stroke of God's hand. Probably the remarkable
vengeance taken on her children was the token of the certainty of all the rest. And all
the churches - To which thou now writest. Shall know that I search the reins - The
desires. And hearts - Thoughts.
Commentary , CHAPTER TWO - THE SEVEN CHURCHES, PART 1
3b. And [I will cast] those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation
= indicates a punishment for those who have joined in with Jezebels cultural
compromise. Adultery can be either
literal or figurative. It should be understood as the literal breaking of the
marriage vows. There is nothing in the text to indicate that married individuals were not
participating in Jezebels activities. Just as
they were physically eating meat offered to idols, they were engaging in illicit sexual
activity. The penalty for this conduct is "great tribulation."
3d. And I will kill her children with pestilence = a case can be made for either physical or spiritual
children. The outcome is the samedeath. Pestilence is spoken of as
the method of judgment. This event is specifically indicated to be authorized by the Lamb
who is "The Son of God."

Ezekiel 23:45-48 (King James Version)
the righteous men, they shall judge them
after the manner of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood; because they are adulteresses, and blood is in
their hands. 46:
For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will bring up a company upon them, and will give them to be
removed and spoiled. 47:
And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and
burn up their houses with fire.
48: Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the
land, that all women may be taught not to do
after your lewdness.
(not only of corporeal
uncleanness, but also of spiritual adultery; that is, idolatry)
Dr. Constable's Notes on Ezekiel ,
The Lord commanded a group of
soldiers to attack these cities and to
terrorize and plunder them. These
invaders would stone the guilty (the
punishment for adulterers and
murderers in the Mosaic Law),slay them
and their children with their swords,
and burn their houses.
these verses and classic commentaries make clear, that
God according to the bible will punish the (innocent) children for the crimes commited by their parents (the idol worsippers and adulteresses)
, why punish innocent childeren for the crimes (murder, adultery) commited by their

testaments confirmation of upholding this old testament law:
Jesus orders Christians to follow the Old Testament's laws: "Do not think that I
[Jesus] have come to abolish the Law (the Old Testament) or the Prophets; I have not come
to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and
earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means
disappear from the Law (the Old Testament) until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:17-18)" It is quite clear from these verses from the New Testament that Jesus
peace be upon him did honor the Old Testament and did say that every single
"letter" of it has to be honored, followed and fulfilled.
"Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his
disciples: 'The teachers of the law and the
Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you.
But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.' (Matthew 23:1-3)"
