Introduction: We must first of all know that the entire Bible is corrupted and unreliable and is mostly filled with man-made laws and corruption! GOD Almighty Said: "`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
The Revised Standard Version makes even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
In either translation, we clearly see that the Jews had so much corrupted the Bible with their man-made cultural laws, that they had turned the Bible into a lie!
See Also Deuteronomy 31:25-29 where Moses peace be upon him predicted the corruption/tampering of the Law (Bible) after his death.
The Book of Moses predicted that the Law (Bible) will get corrupted. The Book of Jeremiah which came approximately 826 years after did indeed confirm this corruption.
The Bible claims that Jesus was a racist! It also claims that Jesus was sent only to the Jews and not to Mankind!
Please be advised that non of the following in the Bible I take as the truth, because the Bible is highly doubtful and corrupted according to the Theologians and Historians of the NIV Bible. I can't trust the Bible, because the Truth can not be filtered out from it.
It is important for Christians to know, however, that Muslims claim that every Messenger of GOD Almighty before Muhammad was sent to a limited amount of people. He was sent to a tribe or nation to save them from their wrong doing and to lead them to GOD Almighty's Straight Path. Muhammad on the other hand was sent to all of Mankind. Below, we will see how the Bible agrees with the Muslims' claim:
The following was taken from Bad things said about Jesus in the Bible:
Jesus calling the Jews, the masters, and the Philistines their dogs. Also, Jesus refusing to heal a sick child until he [Jesus] was pressured by the mother's begging. Does Jesus like to be begged? "A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, 'Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession. Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, 'Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.' He [Jesus] answered, 'I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.' The woman came and knelt before him. 'Lord, help me!' she said. He [Jesus] replied 'It is not right to take the children's [Jews] bread [blessings and miracles reserved for them] and toss it to their dogs [the Canaanite, or the Philistines].' 'Yes, Lord' she said, 'but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table.' Then Jesus answered, 'Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.' And her daughter was healed from that very hour. (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 15:22-28)"
This seems to be quite clear a contradiction from the Bible, because Jesus did call the Jews hypocrites and he never liked them, and they were the ones who crucified him:
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 23:37)"
What parts of the Bible do Muslims believe have Truth in them?
"I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel":
An addition from brother Adeel Khan; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:
There are other verses that Christians display to prove their point that Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was sent for all mankind.
He said to them, "Go into all the world, and preach the Gospel to the whole creation.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who disbelieves will be condemned.
This raises two points;
1) There was some Gospel already in existance but from history we know that the present day Gospels were written by men much after the departure of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) from earth.
2) There is a contradiction as at other places, he says to go only to Israel. A careful look at this verse reveals that there is no contradiction;

Then Jesus said to them, "So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News.
Other verses that Christians rely on for their claim;
Matthew 28:18-20 is the most solid proof a christian can present!
"A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, 'Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession. Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, 'Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.' He [Jesus] answered, 'I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.' The woman came and knelt before him. 'Lord, help me!' she said. He [Jesus] replied 'It is not right to take the children's [Jews] bread [blessings and miracles reserved for them] and toss it to their dogs [the Canaanite, or the Philistines].' 'Yes, Lord' she said, 'but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table.' Then Jesus answered, 'Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.' And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
(From the NIV Bible, Matthew 15:22-28)"
Here Jesus calls all Gentiles as dogs. This is racism!
An interpretation of this verse given by Christians is that that the woman had faith and for that she was saved by Jesus. This is a false interpretation and makes guaranteed salvation in danger for the Christians as strong faith is required.
Furthermore, if my mother sends me to the market to buy a dozen apples and on my way back, a beggar stops me and aks for two apples. I tell him that I have not been sent to give apples to beggars but the beggar starts pleading and crying and due to pity, I give him two apples. This does not change my mission. My mission is still to bring apples for my mother!
Although Jesus (peace be upon him) did help the woman, it was because of his compassion for the woman's plight. But note that it is only this single Gentile who was helped. There is no other Gentile that Jesus (peace be upon him) had preached to. Other related statements can also be found in John 11:52 and John 10:16, Matthew 10:5-6.
"Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) is referred to as a Prophet of Galilee and not of the whole world by the ordinary folk in Matthew 21:11. It were the hypocrites like Paul who changed his mission to suit their needs.
"And the crowds said, 'This is the prophet Jesus of Nazareth of Galilee.'"
Jesus (peace be upon him) is definitely greater than the disciples and his words are what matter most. If there is a contradiction, the disciples should be rejected on that matter!
"And Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is not without honour, except in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.'" (also in Matthew 13:57, Luke 4:24 and John 4:43).
This is a wonderful prophecy as well. It not only says that he is for Israel alone but also says that others do not respect non fellow race Prophets. This has turned out to be true. We see that the so-called followers of Jesus (peace be upon him) do not respect him and they have done this by associating man-made concepts like Trinity to him.
The disciples were confused
"Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only."
"And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him. Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them ."
Jesus (peace be upon him) was sent for Israel only!
Continuing with the article...
Jesus also said: "These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: 'Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.' (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 10:5-6)"
These are the words of Jesus in the Bible. It is quite obvious that Jesus was NOT sent to Mankind and Christianity isn't a religion for Mankind. Even if Jesus did die on the cross for people's sins, he didn't do it for all nations' sins, but for the Jews alone who believed in him.
And when Jesus told his disciples to go "to all nations" and teach them the words and baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit (Mathew 28:18-20), it is obvious that "all nations" is a mistranslation, because in the Middle East, the words for "People" and "Nation" are the same word.
Very Important Note: It is important to know also that nations as we know them today in countries were very few back 2000 years ago. People for the most part were divided into either "tribes" or "empires"; like the Persian and Roman Empires for instance, which both spread in land as far as what we call today North Africa, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India. Nations as we know them today existed in few places only. Arabs for instance weren't called "The Arab Nation", because they were divided into 365 pagan tribes, each tribe worshiping their idol god(s) which were different than the others.
So if Jesus told his disciples to go to "all people", then this simply means to all of the people of Israel, because he "was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel", and NOT to anyone else, because THERE WERE ALMOST NO NATIONS AROUND HIM AND VERY FEW NATIONS WORLD-WIDE! We are clearly left with a crystal clear contradiction between the Christian Missionaries of today and what Jesus said.
And as we clearly see from the introduction above, the Bible was very badly corrupted by the Jews. GOD said they corrupted the Bible so bad that they turned it into a "lie!".
