Malachi Chapter 2 and the Christian double standard

 By

 

   

One of the most common out-dated arguments Christian often bring up is surah 4:157 which states:

 

004.157
YUSUFALI: That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

Christians often derive some strange arguments after reading that verse. Rather than see the great big picture behind this event, they completely ignore it and just want to be negative. They like to claim that Allah deceived the people, and then they start making all these other arguments. However so, all Allah did was simply save his prophet, there is no crime in that, he simply out-smarted his enemies once again, as he always does.

However the topic of this article is not surah 4:157, but rather the topic is on Malachi chapter 2. As I was reading the chapter, I found a very interesting verse which I thought I would share with everyone. After I quote the relevant passages it will really expose the Christians very badly.

 

Malachi
Chapter 2
KJV

1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. 3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.

 

So note, here we have the Christian God saying he is going to CORRUPT the people. So my question to the Christian is this, just say the God of Islam is a deceiver and all that (estaghfurrallah!), in what way is that worse than your God who is a God who corrupts a people? Meaning he makes them evil, liars, killers, fornicators, homosexuals, and all the other bad things you could think off?

If a Christian has a problem with Allah supposedly being a deceiver and all, then why don’t they have a problem with their own God who goes around and corrupts a people! Such glaring double-standards just expose the Christians in general.

However so, the Christian is in a much worse position, unlike the Quran, here the Christian God is actually committing something evil, he is corrupting a people. When we read what Allah was doing, he was doing something good, he was saving a prophet, so hence you have two completely different situations, one good, one bad.

Now note the reason I bring this argument up is to expose the Christian double standard, had the Christians not made an argument out of surah 4:157, then I wouldn’t really bring Malachi up, the only reason I bring Malachi up is to expose the Christian argument, and to show their own Bible has some information on God that they would definitely find un-acceptable.

So if Allah is not a true God for surah 4:157, then neither is the God of Malachi chapter 2, the Christian must decide now, either they drop their argument against Islam on this issue, or they accept the fact the one who wrote Malachi was not God. Either way they lose.

 

APPENDIX

 

Often you also hear Christians say that God does not bring evil or corruption, people bring it upon themselves. In light of all this, it even makes Malachi more interesting because as we can see, God is the direct one who will be bringing this corruption:

 

Malachi
Chapter 2
KJV

1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. 3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.

 

Note it says I will corrupt them. So hence we see here that it is God bringing this corruption to them. Lest the Christian argues oh well the people were corrupt, that does not change anything, and this further worsens the Christians position, because this then means God added to the corruption rather than take it away!
