Christianity Contradicts the Bible!

 

Written by Abdullah Smith


[Part I] [
Part II]

 

 

 

 

 

The Bible has been rejected by the Church when it comes to Jewish laws of Circumcision and observance of the Sabbath, but these are the very laws that Jesus practiced, as they were revealed by God, yet no Christian follows it today, the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 5:17-20)

 

The Essenes observed the Torah, the Nazarenes observed the Torah; they were rightly called the true Christians before the Pauline heresy took place. Where are the practical teachings of Jesus in the “Christian” countries today? Where is the Law of the Bible found in “Christian” lands? Why aren’t adulterers stoned to death?

 

No, they have abandoned the Bible’s teachings of physical prayer, fasting, and mandatory Laws revealed by God. The Christians should be called Paulians, because they neither follow the Gospel of Jesus, but their salvation threads upon the Gospel of Paul.

 

What is the significance for our faith and for our religious life, the fact that the Gospel of Paul is different from the Gospel of Jesus?

 

The attitude which Paul himself takes up towards the Gospel of Jesus is that he does not repeat it in the words of Jesus, and does not appeal to its authority.... The fateful thing is that the Greek, the Catholic, and the Protestant theologies all contain the Gospel of Paul in a form which does not continue the Gospel of Jesus, but displaces it."

(Albert Schweitzer, The Quest for the Historical Jesus,)

 

 

Christianity contradicts the Bible, it says “Do not be like the pagans” (Matthew 6:8) yet they celebrate Christmas, which is entirely a pagan festival (Jeremiah 10:2-5)

 

The Bible requires the Acceptance of Islam, it orders fasting and physical prayer, it teaches the Oneness of God and rejects the trinity, it contains prophecies of Muhammad’s (pbuh) life and mission; it promotes the religion of Islam (Isaiah 58:3-7, Matthew 7:21)

 

There is no saviour besides GOD:

 

 

I, [even] I, [am] the LORD; and beside me [there is] no saviour. (Isaiah 43:11)

 

Yet I [am] the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for [there is] no saviour beside me. (Hosea 13:4)

 

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. (Luke 1:47)

 

These verses refute the Christian phrase “Jesus is my lord and saviour”. There is no Saviour besides Yahweh! Jesus never claimed to be “Lord and Saviour” to the Jews. He explicitly said “I do not accept praise from men” (John 5:41) “In vain do they worship me” (Matthew 15:9, Mark 7:7) and “The Father is greater than I” (John 14:28) etc.

 

 

The “Lord Jesus” came from Paul

 

 

The deification of Jesus as “Lord and Savior” was concocted by Paul. There is no verse to substantiate the Christian phrase in the Gospels. It was Paul who introduced the title “Lord Jesus Christ”, not the disciples who knew Jesus face to face.

 

To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 1:7)

 

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature. (Romans 13:14)

 

 

Notice how Jesus never gloried himself as “Lord and Savior”, these false titles were given to him later.

 

The phrase “Lord and Saviour” originated from the epistle of 2Peter, the most doubtful book in the New Testament. The Church Father Origen (185-254 CE) was the first to mention it by name! 2Peter was not accepted by the Church until the 4th century.

 

And you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:11)

 

 

Distortion of the Jewish expression

 

The expression ‘lord’ is used for respect and honor, not worship. Many characters were called ‘lord’ in the Bible.

 

Paul is responsible for altering the Meaning of this Jewish idiom; he transformed ‘lord’ into ‘Lord’ as object of worship!

 

The following verses explain:

 

"Drink, my lord," she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink. (Genesis 24:18)

 

Then you are to say, 'They belong to your servant Jacob. They are a gift sent to my lord Esau, and he is coming behind us.' (Genesis 32:18)

 

Then Judah went up to him and said: "Please, my lord, let your servant speak a word to my lord. Do not be angry with your servant, though you are equal to Pharaoh himself. (Genesis 44:18)

 

And he said to Moses, "Please, my lord, do not hold against us the sin we have so foolishly committed. (Numbers 12:11)

 

Jael went out to meet Sisera and said to him, "Come, my Lord, come right in. Don't be afraid." So he entered her tent, and she put a covering over him. (Judges 4:18, NIV)

 

They said, "When the LORD commanded my lord to give the land as an inheritance to the Israelites by lot, he ordered you to give the inheritance of our brother Zelophehad to his daughters. (Numbers 36:2)

 

The expression lord is not significant; the Jewish expression does not mean ‘divinity’.

 

Jesus rejected those who called him ‘lord’ and neglected his teachings:

 

Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, (Matthew 7:21)

 

Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:46)

 

In vain do they worship me (Matthew 15:9, Mark 7:7)

 

I do not accept praise from men (John 5:41)

 

 

Christians Follow Paul:

 

Notice how Christians say “all food is clean”, but who guides them to say this? Paul their Master says its okay!

 

Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. (Romans 14:20)

 

* The Bible does not allow the consumption of pork (Leviticus 11:7)

 

 

Notice how Christians say “We are saved by faith only”, but who guides them to say this? Paul their Master has deceived them:

 

Know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified. (Galatians 2:16)

 

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10)

 

* Do the words “Jesus is Lord” sound familiar?

 

 

Are we justified by faith “without the works of the Law?” Yet Jesus said the exact opposite:

 

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law 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 of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)

 

 

Jesus hated those who practice lawlessness, as the following verse indicates:

 

So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:40-42)

Christianity is the religion of “talk and no action”, in the following verse:

 

 

"The lawteachers and the Pharisees sit in Moses' chair. This means you're supposed to observe and follow everything they tell you. But don't do what they do; after all, they're all talk and no action.” (Matthew 23:2)

 

 

Jesus rebukes those who defy him; they follow the doctrines of men:

 

These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.” (Mark 7:7)

 

 

This verse is referring to modern Christians, who neither follow Jesus nor practice his teachings, they worship him in vain.

 

 

Paul distorted the Gospel of Jesus to such extant that he contradicted Mark 7:7 and Matthew 23:2:

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9, NIV)

If you acknowledge and confess with your lips… (The Amplified Bible)

 

* Did not Jesus say “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me?” Paul seems to have missed the boat!

* Did not Jesus saythey're all talk and no action?” (Matthew 23:2) Paul preaches the exact opposite.

* Jesus taught that salvation is attained by observing the Law (Matthew 5:17) fasting and physical prayer (Matthew 17:21), and not by eloquent words.

Paul deviated people towards lawlessness, through his strange philosophy that, the observance of the Law motivates to sin (Roshan Enam, Follow Jesus or Follow Paul? p. 42)

Christianity is lawlessness because it teaches salvation comes through “faith only” and not the works of the Law (Matthew 23:23)

 

Jesus taught the exact opposite. He said salvation comes by faith and works

Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:21)

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. (Matthew 4:1-2)

The Holy Quran rebukes those who claim to be “saved by faith alone”.

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested? (Al-Quran 29:2)

We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false. (Al-Quran 29:3)

The Day that (all) things secret will be tested, (Al-Quran 86:9)


Christians are commanded to follow the Law:

"Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)

Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord." It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith. (Al-Quran, 5:68)

If only they had stood fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that was sent to them from their Lord, they would have enjoyed happiness from every side. There is from among them a party on the right course: but many of them follow a course that is evil. (Al-Quran 5:66)

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. (Al-Quran 5:14)

According to the Gospel of Barnabas, Jesus predicted that Paul would corrupt his teachings:

Many, being deceived of Satan, under pretence of piety, are preaching most impious doctrine, calling Jesus son of God, repudiating the circumcision ordained of God for ever, and permitting every unclean meat: among whom Paul also hath been deceived. (The Gospel of Barnabas, p.2).

Christianity allows the drinking of wine, but who told them it was okay? It was Paul their Master!

Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. (1Timothy 5:23)

What does the Bible say about this issue? It clearly prohibits the drinking of wine:

Do not drink wine nor strong drink (Leviticus 10:9) 

Wine [is] a mocker, strong drink [is] raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. (Proverbs 20:1) 

Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart. (Hosea 4:11)

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:

Allah's Apostle was presented with two cups one containing wine and the other milk on the night of his night journey at Jerusalem. He looked at it and took the milk. Gabriel said, "Thanks to Allah Who guided you to the Fitra (i.e. Islam); if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray. (Sahih Muslim, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 232, Narrated by Abu-Huraira)

*There is not a single verse in the New Testament that prohibits wine.

 

 

Drinking alcohol gets you drunk, a major sin:

 

Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. (Romans 13:13)

 

Since an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. (Titus 1:7)

 

Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. (1Timothy 3:2-3)

 

For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to doliving in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. (1 Peter 4:3)

 

 

Why do Christian women dress lustfully? The Bible says:

I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, (1Timothy 2:9) 

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. (1Peter 3:3-4)

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. (Ephesians 5:3)

 

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father's wife. (1 Corinthians 5:1)

 

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. (1 Corinthians 6:18)

 

We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. (1 Corinthians 10:8)

 

In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 1:7)

 

 

Is Jesus God? The Bible says No!

The Bible teaches that Jesus is not God; he was not all-powerful and all-knowing:

Jesus weaker than Holy Spirit!

Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven. Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (Matthew 12:31-32)

Jesus is not All-knowing

Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" (Mark 5:29-31)

Jesus is not All-powerful

 "What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.

 They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."

 "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said. "Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?"

 "We can," they answered. Jesus said to them, "You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared." (Mark 10:36-40, Matthew 20:22-24)

At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" (Mark 5:29-31)

 

Jesus was never called God, but a Prophet!

The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee." (Matthew 21:11)

"About Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. (Luke 24:20)

And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor." (Matthew 13:57)

 

Jesus predicted his Teachings would be corrupted:

"After my departure there will arise the ignorant and the crafty, and many things will they ascribe unto Me that I never spake, and many things which I did speak will they withhold (Gospel of the Nazorenes)

“But beware that ye be not deceived, for many false prophets shall come, who shall take my words and contaminate my gospel” (Gospel of Barnabas, 72:6)

Many, being deceived of Satan, under pretence of piety, are preaching most impious doctrine, calling Jesus son of God, repudiating the circumcision ordained of God for ever, and permitting every unclean meat: among whom Paul also hath been deceived. (The Gospel of Barnabas, p.2).

 

Others preached that he really died, but rose again. Others preached, and yet preach, that Jesus is the son of God, among whom is Paul deceived. (The Gospel of Barnabas, p.273).

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. (2 Peter 2:1)
