Christianity’s Terrorist Dogma In Paul of Tarsus’ Own Words
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
The Apostle of Doom by Mohd Elfie Nieshaem Juferi
All praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, his family, his companions and to all generations of Muslims who were and are currently pursuing their path in earnest.
This book was written with full awareness of the Christian missionary movement which is increasingly involved with their current propaganda, resulting in the problem of apostasy among the Muslim ummah unaware of the history of this religion. What is sad is that those affected are children with little or no religious education. Some of them were given basic Islamic knowledge, but this knowledge was too thin to be an effective counter to the onslaught of Christian thought.
We seek refuge in God from all doubts of faith and from the plot of the unbelievers, especially among those of the People of the Scripture who are always trying to undermine our faith. Verily, God has revealed the Qur’an as a guide for those willing to seek the truth. But the truth cannot be attained when the search process is based on a deep-set hatred for Islam.
Mankind needs to liberate their thinking from the elements of jahilliyyah, review their actions and acts of superstitious practices that pollute and alter their culture of life and ethics. This will thus put in place a new structure for a more comprehensive life with universal values and the majesty of faith when these undesirable elements are successfully discarded.
It is obvious that if we were to examine the fundamentals of the teachings of contemporary Christianity, one would discover that it did not come from the true teachings of Christ Jesus, but through through the teachings of a Jew from the city of Tarsus (now located in Turkey) by name of Saul, who later changed his name to Paul.
Not many people know that Paul was actually a drunkard1 and a murderer2. Paul had managed to successfully convince the followers of Jesus that he had received a “revelation” to continue the teachings of Jesus and have joined them to spread the teachings of Jesus.
However, it appears that Paul had latent malice, which is to destroy the religion of Jesus from within by introducing false doctrines that had no basis in the authentic teachings of Jesus. His aim was to simply attract the Gentiles to participate in the religion he created. This situation eventually led Paul was involved in a feud with the Companions of Jesus, which in turn eventually caused him to leave the hawariyyun to spread his teachings alone together with his followers.
Our hope is that this book will shed light on the history and origins of Christianity and how it has evolved to this day, apart from contributing to the spread of knowledge among Muslims and opening their eyes to the origins of Christianity and the teachings of its true founder, Paul of Tarsus — otherwise known as the Apostle of Doom.
How Did Christianity All Begin?
Christianity today is said to have been founded by Jesus Christ, or better known as Jesus in the Muslim world, but if we examine more thoroughly, particularly in the Bible, we will find that almost the entire doctrine contained in the teachings of Christianity today is caused by or is the creation of a Jew named Saul, who was born in the city of Tarsus, Dhoom capital city in Asia Minor, later known by the name of Paul.
Jesus which actually was a prophet from among the Children of Israel who has been sent as a messenger that confirms the truth of the Torah and the inspiration that called gospel comes from God. He also sent God S.W.T to convey the message about the birth of the last prophet and messenger messenger of God Almighty,
that Muhammad Jesus has shown signs of his prophecy as prophets before him in the task of spreading the teachings of God S.W.T, which was later amended by the dirty hands of the irresponsible.
All the miracles shown by him was by permission of Allah S.W.T also. He turned on his friend Lazarus died, which is permitted by God S.W.T, he megubati people affected by the disease hairpiece S.W.T also the permission of Allah, his miraculous birth without fatherless it is also the will of God S.W.T where most Christians today have rejected and more miracles demonstrated that he is also the will of God S.W.T
He was later rescued by Allah of Jews killed by the priests who do not feel happy with him at the time, and where the traitor Judas Iscariot has been changed so that his face resembled Jesus and finally killed on the cross. That’s the picture that has been listed in “The Final Testament”, ie the Qur’an ul-Karim, on Jesus underlying holdings of all Muslims.
While Christians generally show their love to Jesus as a Muslim, but their way goes against the Muslims. Muslims are very affectionate and loves Jesus because he is a prophet of God who was sent to his people. All signs shown is proof that he a.s. is a messenger of God S.W.T which brings true doctrine.
But Christians express their feelings of love and affection by stating that he a.s. is one of the divine persons in the Trinity or Trinity and many more claims that are sometimes as if nothing enters the mind of a sane man.
This version of Christianity today is based on Paul and interpretation. Christianity today wake up and fall based on the ideology of Paul. In fact no doubt that the name of Paul is not an unfamiliar name among students of comparative religion, especially for Christian scholars. This is because he is a figure so large role in shaping and creating a widespread religion, which was later renamed as “Christianity”.
And the researchers own religion, although most of them were born in the West, they also do not have any qualms about stating that he is the person responsible for creating and spreading “Christianity” is seen as today — and it’s not the original teachings brought by Jesus as
Fabrication Of The New Testament
We are told that Saul of Tarsus (Paul) is the author of the majority of the books of the New Testament. He is claimed to be the author of Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Phillippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, and Hebrews. We would expect such a pivotal character in the Bible and the author of the majority of the New Testament books to be able to keep his stories straight at least in such fundamental matters as how he became a Christian and was “saved.”
However, we can find in the Bible a sworn affidavit by Paul that he is guilty of fabrication. Sound incredible? Let us have a look.
If we read the passages from Acts 9:19–29 and Acts 26:19–21 1 we will find that Paul had a history of being busy persecuting the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem and dragging them from their homes to be tortured, killed or converted; when suddenly one day he decided to branch out and persecute them in Damascus.
For this reason, he goes to the High Priest asking for letters sanctioning such actions in Damascus. Why he would do this since the High Priest of Jerusalem had no authority over Damascus remains a mystery to many, however, let us continue.
19 And when he [Paul] had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul [Paul] certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.
20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.
23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.
26 And when Saul came to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
28And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem. And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus,
29 and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.
Shortly after setting out to continue his work in Damascus, Paul is supposed to have “seen the Lord in the way” and accepted Christianity after being a staunch enemy of Christians and having become famous for his severe persecution of them. Barnabas (one of the apostles of Jesus) then supposedly vouched for him with the other apostles and convinced them to accept him.
Paul then went with all of the apostles on a preaching campaign in and out of Jerusalem and all of Judea preaching boldly to it’s people. Paul then appointed himself the twelfth apostle of Jesus (in place of Judas who had the devil in him) as seen in his own books (Romans 1:1, 1 Corinthians 1:1, etc.)
- “Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. For these causes, the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.”
A Thorn In His Flesh, Messenger Of Satan
Satan has made Christians believe this life to be lived freely without any accountability of sins whereas God sent His Messengers with scriptures to believe in one God and to worship him by accepting his guidelines and commandments and to expect his mercy and forgiveness to reward us the heavens for our struggle.
Christianity is without a doubt the biggest lie upheld by lazy people who refuse to uphold the law of Moses, although Jesus said that he did not come to destroy the Law, but to fulfil it.
The Fulfilment of the Law
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them.
18 For truly I tell you, 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.
19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practises and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 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.
19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven.
Paul and the Church are solely responsible for turning the religion of Christ into a personality cult, as we shall soon see.
Paul Said to Leave Jesus’ Teachings
6 Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God
Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, â€œMy grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.1
After the alleged crucifixion, the different opinions about the condition of Jesus. Some regard the death on the cross. This belief is desired by Jewish rabbis and Muslims who reject Jesus. And some are of the opinion that Jesus has not died, but God saved him as in said in the Qur’an, Surah An-Nisa verse 157.
What kind of development people after the death of Jesus?
Jews were divided into three groups:
In its development appears a man named Paul. It was he who changed the belief that Jesus brought a new face that is totally different from the original conviction . The irony is this belief that is followed up to this moment by Christians worldwide .
His real name is Saul , born in Tarsus ( Turkey ) approximately 2 years before Christ . Because Jesus was born about the year 6 BC , Paul aged approximately 8 years younger than Jesus. Paul’s father came from the tribe of Benjamin, one of the 12 ethnic tribes of the Israelites. It was in the city of Tarsus there is a Greek college , a few temple gods , buildings comedy, and other entertainment venues are highly favored by the Greeks . Since Paul was very interested in the young of culture , especially Greek philosophy. In his collected two influences , the law and Greek philosophy.
Paul also studied formally under Gamaliel, a well-known Jewish scholar in Jerusalem.
Intersection influence of Greek philosophy on Judaism in the time it was a common thing . Flow of Greek philosophy very influential when it is considered the pantheistic Stoic flow of God and a creature of the same unit just different in substance and form visions . Mixing between the teachings of Stoic philosophy with the teachings of Judaism are Jewish philosopher Philo on.
He regarded the Logos of the Stoics as a sort of supreme angel aka Holy Spirit . Philo lived during the life of Jesus and Paul. Paul was not a man of Bethlehem ( the hometown of Jesus ) or the Nazarene sect / Nazorite nor the people of Jerusalem . He never associated with environmental Jesus . He was not a disciple of Jesus , nor his followers also . Paul noted Biblical fact alone is the enemy of the followers of Jesus and he acts very cruel to them . Paul never married until her death due to her physical condition defects ( clubfoot leg , eye defect side , mangy bald ) .
The apostle Paul declared himself as Jesus . He met the disciples of Jesus , to know the strengths , weaknesses and strengths influence . He started a plan to spread his message to the Gentiles .
Feeling make progress, he devoted all his ability and made inroads in large numbers . He put the ideas of Greek philosophy into the obtainment of the teachings of Jesus disciples.
Teachings of Jesus is specific only to the children of Israel , it is mentioned in the Qur’an,
And ( remember ) when Jesus son Mary said : ” O Children of Israel , verily I am the messenger of Allah unto you , confirming the book before me , namely the Torah , and gave happy news with ( the coming of ) an Apostle who will come after me , whose name is Ahmad ( Muhammad ). ” And when the messengers came to them with tangible evidence, they said : ” This is the real magic. ” (Surah As- Shaff :6) .
And also mentioned in the Bible is clear that Jesus’ mission only to the children of Israel ( Matthew 10:5–6 ) , the twelve disciples were sent by Jesus and He advised them :
“Do not stray to other nations or to enter the city of the Samaritans , but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel .
Greek culture is very influential in the wider community of Judea at the time, which is now Palestine . The entry of the Roman invaders brought culture . In addition to colonize , to rob the people and natural resources , they also spread their ideology to the Jewish community that is pantheism .
If we ever watch a movie series Hercules , that’s where the picture of the teachings of pantheism . Teachings on the worship of many gods . Some are called to Zeus , supreme god , the father of all the gods . There Hera , wife of Zeus , the god of war Ares , god Aprodite beauty , and many others . What is interesting here , Zeus married the woman of the earth and gave birth to a boy who is super strong , named Hercules . And he is regarded as the savior of mankind .
Why is it called attractive , personalized Hercules figure is very similar to Jesus who is also regarded as the savior of mankind . Indeed, the coming of Jesus is to save the human race but not as a living god among men as well as Hercules . Prophet Jesus as only a man , a messenger of God, a prophet, a signpost on the truth that God approves . Well this false teaching that Jesus is God as well as Hercules , it is distributed by Paul . The teaching of Jesus is worshiped on the one god , monotheism . While Paul’s teaching is a form derived from the teachings of pantheism . Paul taught the trinity , the three gods namely that there is God the
Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Here is how indeed differences were virtually teachings of Paul and Jesus :
10 (ten) fundamental differences in the teachings of Jesus and Paul :
1 . Teachings of Jesus : Jesus was a messenger of God ( Jesus never asked to be worshiped / deified ) .
Jesus answered, ” I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel . ” ( Matthew 15:24).
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God , and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent . ( John 17:3 ) , ( John 11:42 ). I (Jesus) say to you, a servant is not superior to his master, or a messenger of the one who sent him . I tell you :
Surely whoever accepts the one sent me , he receives Me , and whoever receives me , receives him ( the Father ) who sent me . ( John 13:16,20 ) .
You have heard , that I ( Jesus ) have told you that I go away , but I come back to you . Had you love Me , you would rejoice because I go to my Father , for the Father is greater than I am. ( John 14:28 ) .
Paul’s teaching : Jesus is Lord .
But for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist , and one Lord , Jesus Christ , through whom are all things and through whom we live . ( 1 Corinthians 8:6 ) .
That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is God , and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead , thou shalt be saved . ( Romans 10:9 ).
Paul is trying to indoctrinate others that just by believing Jesus as Lord and believe Jesus rose from the dead , then he will be saved . In Paul’s teaching / Christian , Jesus is promoted as God than with God / Father .
Compare the statements of Jesus which further accentuates the God / Father as the one God .
2 . Teachings of Jesus : not nullify the law , even the law continue .
” Do not think that I ( Jesus ) have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets . I am not come to destroy , but to fulfill . ( Matthew 5:17 ) .
Because I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law , till all be fulfilled . ( Matthew 5:18) .
Therefore, whoever breaks one commandment once — was the smallest , and thus teach it to others , he will occupy the lowest place in the kingdom of heaven ; but who does and teaches all the commandments of the law , he will occupy a high place in the kingdom of heaven . ( Matthew 5:19) , ( Matthew 5:20) .
Law is part of the teachings of Jesus that must be implemented by the people.
Paul’s teaching : Christians condemn the law .
You know , that man is not justified by observing the law , but through faith in Christ Jesus. Therefore we — also have believed in Christ Jesus , that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law . Because : “no one will be justified ” by works of the law . ( Galatians 2:16 ) , ( Galatians 3:24–25 ) , ( Galatians 5:4 ) , ( Romans 3:27–28 ) and ( Ephesians 2:15) .
3 . Teachings of Jesus : Male circumcision should
And when the eight days and he had to be circumcised , he was named Jesus , the name called by the angel before he was conceived his mother . ( Luke 2:21) .
This is my covenant , which ye shall hold , the agreement between me and you and thy seed, which every male among you shall be circumcised ; circumcision skin should be cut off and that will be a sign between me and you . ( Genesis 17:10–11 ) .
Child who is eight days old shall be circumcised , every male that is among you , from generation to generation : whether born in your house , or bought with money of any stranger, but does not include descendants . ( Genesis 17:12 ) , ( Genesis 17:13) , ( Genesis 17:14) , ( Genesis 21:4 ) .
Paul’s teaching : Christians do not require circumcision
Because for those who are in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision it has no meaning something , just faith that works by love . ( Galatians 5:6 ) .
Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing . The important thing is to obey the laws of God . ( 1 Corinthians 7:19) .
4 . Teachings of Jesus : There is no inherited sin .
When Jesus saw this , he was indignant and said to them : ” Let the children come to me , do not hinder them , for the people who like that is the kingdom of God . ( Mark 10:14 ) .
The person who sins , it shall die . Children will not share in the guilt of the father and the father would not share in the guilt of his son. The righteous shall be upon him the truth , and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him . ( Ezekiel 18:20 ) .
Paul’s teaching : Each person inherits the sin of Adam
Therefore, just as sin entered into the world by a single person ( Adam ) , and death through sin , and thus death spread to all men , because all sinned . ( Romans 5:12 ) .
NB : Because of the original sin of Adam , according to Paul , crucified Jesus supposedly to atone for the sins of man.
5 . Teachings of Jesus : Fasting , perform ablution , teaches prostrate and pray while prostrating . But when you fast , oiled your head and wash your face ( Matthew 6:17) .
Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and feet with water from it . When they went into the tent of meeting , and when they come near to the altar , they washed the feet and hands , as the Lord commanded Moses . ( Exodus 40:31–32 ) .
Then He ( Jesus ) went a little farther , then bowed down and prayed , saying, ” O my Father, if it be possible , let this cup pass from me , but not as I delight , but as thou wilt . ” ( Matthew 26:39 ) , ( Numbers 20:6 ) , ( Genesis 17:2–3 ) .
Paul’s teaching : singing in church .
And speaking to one another in psalms , hymns of praise and hymns. Singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart . ( Ephesians 5:19 ) .
Let the word of Christ richly dwell among you , so that you with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another and singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs , you thank God in your heart . ( Colossians 3:16 ) .
6 . Teachings of Jesus : prohibit luxury living in the world .
“Do not lay up treasures on earth , where moth and rust earth destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal . ( Matthew 6:19–20 ) .
Teachings of Paul : No ban on luxury living in the Christian teaching . ” People who steals must steal it again , but let him work hard and do a good job with his own hands , so that he can distribute to those in need . ” ( Ephesians 4:28 ) .
7 . Teachings of Jesus : dead wrapped in a shroud .
And Joseph also took the body, gives shroud with a clean linen cloth , ( Matthew 27:59 ).
They took the body of Jesus , gives shroud and wrapped it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury . ( John 19:40) .
Paul’s teaching : death was given clothes neatly and wrapped coffin
8 . Teachings of Jesus : do not cancel stoning .
In the law Moses commanded us to stone such women . What then do you ( Jesus ) about it ? ” ( John 8:5 ) .
And when they constantly ask Him ( Jesus ) , he got stood up and said to them : ” Whoever among you without sin , let him throw the first stone at her. ” ( John 8:7 ) .
Paul’s teaching : There is no mention of stoning in Christianity .
Christianity rejects stoning , because he is part of the law . Refer back to Paul’s statement in Galatians 2:16 ( point 2 above ) .
9 . Teachings of Jesus : Applying the law of Qisas
You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth . ( Matthew 5:38 ).
eye for an eye , tooth for tooth , hand for hand , foot for foot ( Exodus 21:24) .
replace broken fracture , eye for eye , tooth for tooth ; like others made ?? blameless , that should be made to him . ( Leviticus 24:20 ) .
Thou shalt not pity him , because the effect : the life for life , eye for eye , tooth for tooth , hand for hand , foot for foot . ” ( Deuteronomy 19:21 ) .
Paul’s teaching : Cancelling Qisas law , plunges into slavery .
But I tell you : Do not fight the person harming you , but whoever slaps you on your right cheek , turn to him the left cheek . And if any man will sue you and take your tunic , give your cloak as well . And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two miles .
Give to the one who asks you , and do not reject the person who wants to borrow from you . ( Matthew 5:39–42 ) .
10 . Jesus did not create a new religion and Paul who created Christianity
Refer back to Jesus statement in Matthew 5:17–20 ( Item 2 above ) .
»> However , Christianity is a new religion that was born after the attempted crucifixion of Jesus .
»> ” They lived together with the church for an entire year , and taught much people . In Antioch the disciples were first called Christian.” ( Acts 11:26 ) .
»> Well , it is increasingly clear . that Christians today are not followers of the teachings of Jesus , but followers of the teachings of Paul . They are not Christians but are more properly called Christian.
Proverbs 21v3 To do righteousness and justice, is more ACCEPTABLE TO THE LORD THAN SACRIFICE. There was no need for Jesus to be sacrificed for the sins of humanity just because of Original Sin because Bible states that the father is not responsible for the sins of the son and vice versa, so why is Jesus responsible for the sins of humanity?
Redemption through his BLOOD is a Pagan Belief. Matt. 5:20 and Mathew 19:17 states that redemption is only possible by following the commandments, which is in line with Islam. Redemption through sacrifice and blood is Paul’s teachings, which is against Jesus’s teachings.
- 2 Corinthians 12:7–9
Paul: A Liar And Charlatan
In the previous chapters, we have outlined the origins of Paul and how he rose to prominence as the founder of the religion which is today known as Christianity. Having established that Paul was never acquainted with the original teachings of Jesus (PBUH), we aim to demonstrate that this liar never was inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Let us now take a look at what Paul was reported to have said:
1 Corinthians 7:25–28
25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy.
26 Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are.
27 Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife.
28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.
There are a few important points to be mentioned here:
- Paul never met Jesus in person while Jesus was on earth. Paul became a “prophet” by claiming that Jesus appeared to him on his way to Damascus.
- The Jewish Law allows for a man to divorce his wife if she is not pleasing to him.
- Paul was a Jew, and from his writings, he seemed to be very knowledgeable about the Jewish Law.
- Paul, who had never met Jesus, was obviously unaware of the fact that Jesus forbade divorce between the husband and the wife, except in the case of adultery.
Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 7:27 exposed him to be a liar, because if the Holy Spirit was truly inspiring him, then he would not have uttered such statement! Paul, the Jew, was talking about divorce in general. Yes, the Jewish Law allows divorce between ordinary couples, but Jesus had forbidden it.
In Christianity, a divorce between ordinary couples (when neither one of them committed any major sin against the other) is strictly forbidden, and Paul’s general advice for his followers to not seek a divorce makes it clear that he was ignorant of what Jesus had taught. The Holy Spirit would have inspired Paul to speak only about those whose spouses had cheated on them to not get divorced from them, which we have no idea how this would have helped his followers.
Paul, in fact, was speaking in general terms, which can be summarised as:
- Are you married? Do not seek a divorce.
- Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife.
Paul was clearly not speaking about adultery here. The two parts of 1 Corinthians 7:27, when put together, are clearly speaking in general terms and to all people in general. What man or woman can live with an adulterous spouse? And why should they not divorce when Jesus allowed them to do so?
Let us look at what Jesus said:
31 It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’
32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
There is no question that Paul was unaware of this law by Jesus, and if he truly was inspired by the Holy Spirit, then the latter would not have deceived him like that.
Paul was a liar and a charlatan who claimed to be a “prophet” sent from God Almighty, that he was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Clearly, the only spirit that inspired him was none other than the spirit of Satan.
Did Paul Have Homosexual Urges?
In the book of Acts, we are informed that Paul had Timothy circumcised:
1 And he came also to Derbe and to Lystra: and behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a Jewess that believed; but his father was a Greek.
2 The same was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.
3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and he took and circumcised him because of the Jews that were in those parts: for they all knew that his father was a Greek.
Paul circumcised Timothy because he was facing stiff opposition from the Jews. Thus, in order to avoid getting into more trouble Paul had Timothy circumcised, even though Timothy’s father happened to be a Greek Gentile. But why was the circumcision debate important for the Jews whom Paul wanted to pacify?
To some Gentile readers, this circumcision debate might seem peripheral. Some men are circumcised, others not — so what? In order to see the revolution that Paul was effecting within Jewish circles (or satellites) we turn to the old rabbinic texts. The rabbis considered circumcision so important that they declared 6 that were it not for the blood of the covenant — that is to say, the blood which flowed from Abraham’s penis when, at God’s insistence, he circumcised himself — heaven and earth would not exist.
The teaching of Judaism was that a child must still shed the blood of a covenant — even if he is born without a foreskin, and even if for some medical or other reason he is circumcised before the mystical eighth day. Even the angels are circumcised.
Converts to Judaism in the Roman period had to undergo circumcision. Strangely enough, in Palestine rules were more liberal than in the Diaspora, and there were Proselytes of the Gate, as they were known, who were allowed to ‘become Jews’ without circumcision.
But such was not the general rule. It was widely believed that the admission of uncircumcised men into Jewish religious worship ‘impeded the arrival of the Messiah’. While ‘semi-converts’ were allowed, those who observed the Sabbath and the dietary laws, they were to be regarded as heathens if after a twelve-month period they had not undergone circumcision. These stringent rules did not deter converts.1
So now we need to ask, how was circumcision practised then? What was the method used in those days to circumcise someone?
A. N. Wilson further explains that:
By Roman times, circumcision was done with a metal knife, and, if we believe that Paul did insist on Timothy undergoing circumcision, it is perhaps worth reminding ourselves of the three essential parts of the ritual, without which it is not complete. The first part is milah, the cutting away of the outer part of the foreskin. The is done with one sweep of the knife.
The second part, periah, is the tearing of the inner lining of the foreskin which still adheres to the gland, so as to lay it wholly bare. This was (and is) done by the operator — the mohel, the professional circumciser — with his thumb-nail and index finger.
The third and essential part of the ritual is mesisah, the sucking of blood from the wound. Since the nineteenth century, it has been permissible to finish this part of the ritual with a swab, but in all preceding centuries and certainly in the time of Paul it was necessary for the mohel to clean the wound by taking the penis into his mouth. In the case of a young adult male such as Timothy the bleeding would have been copious.
We can easily imagine why Paul’s Gentile converts were unwilling to undergo the ritual; and, given the more liberal attitudes towards the Torah which had already begun to emerge among the Hellenists of Syrian Antioch, it is not surprising that the custom of circumcision should have started to wane. It took the extremism of Paul to think that the knife of circumcision would actually ‘cut you off from Christ’. 2
In other words, Paul had to take the penis of Timothy in his mouth in order to circumcise him! Note also how strongly Paul opposes circumcision elsewhere in the New Testament:
2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that, if ye receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing.
3 Yea, I testify again to every man that receiveth circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4 Ye are severed from Christ, ye would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit by faith wait for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love.
However, when it came to saving himself from some trouble, Paul immediately had Timothy circumcised so that the Jews would not bother him any further. Since we are aware of Paul’s intense opposition to circumcision no matter what the reasons are, surely his circumcision of Timothy indicates the hidden homosexual desires that he wished to fulfill at least once in his lifetime?
He probably had a deep desire to take a penis into his mouth, so when an opportunity comes along, he decided to avail it. Hence he now has a good excuse to take a penis into his mouth and no one could object to that.
One cannot claim that someone other than Paul had circumcised Timothy, because it is clearly stated that it was Paul who had circumcised him. There was no pressing need for Paul to circumcise Timothy if indeed he was staunchly opposed to the practice, as related in the account in Galatians. But that he did went ahead and conducted the circumcision gives us a reason to pause, as it suggests that he had homosexual urges.
Now it is our turn to say:
Whatever interpretation Christians may have given to Paul’s action later on (whether correctly or incorrectly), the fact that Paul would put the penis of an adult man in his mouth is shameful and disgusting to say the least.
Please note that if such a tradition was located within any Islamic literature or in the Qur’an, and if it is required to take the private organ with one’s mouth, the above is precisely the type of argument the Christian missionaries would have vigorously pointed out in order to demonise Muslims and their religion.
Hence the above paragraph is in reality the outcome if one happens to think like a pervert as the Christian missionaries obviously are.

Appendix A: “O Christ-Worshippers!”
Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jauziyyah was a prominent Muslim jurist during Islam’s Golden Age. Apart from his jurisdiction prowess, he was also competent in composing qasidah (Arabic poetry). Among his more famous works was the qasidah entitled A’obbad al-Maseeh Fi Naqd al-Nasraniyyah (O Christ-Worshippers! In Refuting Christianity). This qasidah is well-known in the Muslim world and has even been turned into a song.
The following is the English translation of the poetry from the Arabic original.
O Christ-worshippers! We want an answer to our question [from your wise ones],
If the Lord was murdered by some people’s actions, what kind of god is this?
We wonder! Was He pleased by what they did to Him?
If yes, blessed be they, they achieved His pleasure,
But if He was discontented, this means their power has subjugated Him!
Was the whole entity left without a Sustainer, so who answered the prayers?
Were the heavens vacated, when He laid under the ground somewhere?
Were all the worlds left without a God, to manage while His hands were nailed?
Why did not the angels help Him, when they heard him while he wailed?
How could the rods stand to bear the True Lord when He was fastened,
How could the irons reached Him and [had] His body pinned?
How could His enemies’ hands touch Him and slap His rear,
And was Christ revived by himself, or was the Reviver another god?
What a sight it was, a grave that enclosed a god,
Stranger still is the belly that confined Him!
He stayed there for nine months in utter darkness, fed by blood!
Then he got out of the womb as a small baby,
Weak and gasping to be breastfed!
He ate and drank, and did what that naturally resulted1,
Is this [what you call] a god?
High Exalted be Allah above the lies of Christians,
All of them will be held accountable for their libels!
O Cross-worshippers! For what reason is this exalted
And blame [is cast upon those] who reject it?
Is it not logical to break and burn it, along with the one who innovated it?2
Since the Lord was crucified on it, and his hands were fastened to it?
That is really a cursed cross to carry,
So discard it, do not kiss it!3
The Lord was abused on it, and you adore it?
So [it is clear that] you are one of His enemies!
If you extol it because it carried the Lord of the Worlds,
Why don’t you prostrate yourself and worship graves,
Since the grave contained your god in it?4
So Christ-worshipper, open your eyes,
This is what the matter is all about.
- Urination and defecation.
- Paul of Tarsus founder of the Trinitarian faith.
- i.e., don’t glorify it.
- i.e., since someone who is a Christian abhors the idea of worshipping a grave, how is it possible for them to worship the cross?
