An important note:

As 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.

We're only exposing the corrupted bible and the evil that exists in it.

 

Innocent children punished with death in the New Testament!


By
Karim
(He is a new convert to Islam, from the Netherlands)

 

 

 

Revelation 2:22-23  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches 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.

 

Some 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, Ezekiel 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 Testament’  :

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.

Revelation 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 Jezebel’s 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 Jezebel’s 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 same—death. 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."

2-  The scriptual support and proof :

Ezekiel 23:45-48 (King James Version)

45: And 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 , page 113

 

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 parents??

 

 

 

Hosea 2:4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms.

 

 

Commentary: The 1599 Geneva Study Bible , Hosea chapter 2

 

2:4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they [be] the f children of whoredoms.

(f) That is bastards, and begotten in adultery.

3-  The new testament’s 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)"
