861: LIES AND GLORY
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
Our Christian friends keep on saying that the New Testament, even though it was written scores of years after Jesus, came into existence through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
We also read that
For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner?
Can anyone think if the Holy Spirit could provoke someone to tell lies or God can be pleased with lies?
No, impossible. God hates lies; God is truth and loves truth.
Then why to tell lies?
Its purpose is to fool people only; and when lies are exposed, man also feels bad and he also starts hating lies.
I am going to show you the lies of the New Testament that have been fabricated through altering the Old Testament. But it’s also necessary to state that it’s possible that what is written in the New Testament might be true, and later they might have changed the Old Testament. Let us put this issue before our Christian friends.
Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—
not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord. Hebrews 8:8-9
Consider that, says the Lord, I disregarded them.
Now see where this has been taken from!
A New Covenant “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—
not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. Jeremiah 31: 31-32
THE QUESTION ARISES: IS THIS JOB OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OR PAUL, OR THE OLD TESTAMENT HAS BEEN CHANGED.
Let’s go ahead!
Therefore, He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.” Ephesians 4:8
Yes, gave gifts to men.
Now see where this was taken from?
You have ascended on high; you have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, Even from the rebellious, That the Lord God might dwell there. Psalms 68:18
Gave gifts to the men
Or received gifts among men, even from the rebellious?
If, for increasing the glory, it is necessary to write a lie or turn the word of God into a lie, then what is the guarantee that there is truth in the beliefs made by Paul?
This epidemic of lies is not only limited to the letters of Paul, its clear effect is also spread to the later Gospels.
And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:17-19
Here the chief disciple of Paul has left no room for suspicion. Look from where he is reading:
The Good News of Salvation “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor.
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, Isaiah 6: 1-2
Now consider these and see the belief that the Holy Spirit also has anything to do with the writing of these books.
If the same thing was written in the Old Testament that Jesus read, then any wise person may tell me why it is different now? If it was different even then, believe me that lies are being ascribed to Jesus PBUH.
Perhaps, no one knows the commandment of God that neither is to be reduced anything from it, nor to be added anything to it.
Or maybe they don’t care about God to achieve their goals.
It is written that he anointed me to preach good tidings unto the MEEK.
Jesus PBUH is reciting he anointed me to give good tidings unto the POOR.
Jesus reads further that He sent me ‘recovery of sight to the blind”.
This is an addition to God’s word. There is no such thing in reality.
If you read Luke 4:18, Jesus (peace be upon him) reduced the word.
It is written in the word, “to heal the brokenhearted”. But Luke has completely deleted it.
You shouldn’t be surprised; this is the proof that the Holy Spirit has no role in writing a book of the New Testament.
The Holy Spirit is a wonder invented to fool Christians. Otherwise, he was an angel and messenger of God.
And the interesting thing is that from where Luke copied and pasted, it is written like this:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me; he has sent me to preach glad tidings to the poor, to heal the broken in heart, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind; to declare the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of recompence; to comfort all that mourn.
This is an attempt to fit the word on him after all the beliefs had already been made; otherwise, Jesus (peace be upon him) did not read the wrong translations of the Septuagint in the synagogues.
Allah knows Best.
