Did Prophet Jesus Practice current Christianity or Islam in his lifetime?
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
First, what is Islam and who is a Muslim?
Islam linguistically and deliciously simply means submit your will to the will of the true ONE God who created everything.
A Muslim is the person who sumbit his/her will to the will of God. Now did Jesus do any of that?
Did Jesus pray,fast, do chairty, fell to the ground to worship God above heavens yes he did, does that what Muslims do, Yes that is right.
WHAT DID JESUS CHRIST REALLY SAY ABOUT HIMSELF AND HIS MISSION?
Below is what Jesus said about himself
1. I am a man (John 8:40)
2. I am a son of man (Matthew 11:19)
3. God sent me ONLY to the LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL (Matthew 15:24 and Matthew 10:5-6)
4. God is GREATER than me (John 14:28)
5. God sent me to proclaim to the Israelites that He is one and ONLY (Mark 12:29 and John 17:3)
6. God sent me to tell the Israelites that He is the ONLY one to be served and worshipped (Matthew 4:10, Mark 12:30)
7. God didn’t send me as a God to be served and worshipped but to serve and worship Him only. (Matthew 20:28)
8. ANYBODY who worship me, is wasting his/her precious critical time. (Matthew 15:9)
9. I never ever claimed to be God because I have God to whom I cried and prayed (Matthew 27:46 and Matthew 26:39)
10. I can’t do ANYTHING on my own. I do only what God commands me to do. (John 5:19, 30)
If, still with what Jesus said about himself above, someone continues to say Jesus is God, then there are at least TWO Gods.
Jesus and the God he cried and prayed to in Matthew27:46, John 11:35 and Matthew 26:39!
And if that’s true, then Jesus must be lying in John 17:3 because he said God is one and only.May God hasten His guidance on the misled.
Christians say they are Jesus’ followers therefore they are Christians, but Muslims say that Jesus did not preach Christianity but Islam. Now who is right Christians or Muslims?
Even the Bible says Jesus preached Islam not Christianity.
Here is some evidence. In the book of Deuteronomy chapter 6:4 Moses was commanded to tell his followers that they must believe in One God as a condition for being a believer,
Jesus came after Moses and taught his followers to believe in the same order given by Moses (Mark 12:27-29.
Muhammad agreed and ordered his followers to believe in the same order (Qur’an 112:1-4).
Now for those who preach Christianity, is Jesus a Christian or a Muslim? Can you show me where Jesus taught Christianity in the Bible?
With these cogent, undeniable and preface evidence from both the Qur’an and the Bible I can disprove Christian irrational, illogical and baseless doctrines in Christianity that they are Jesus’ followers in the name of Christianity.
“If Chistian means “A follower Of Jesus then I am a True Christian”
I worship the One True God (NOT TRINITY) who created the universe, who created Jesus, who was worshipped by Jesus.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. ~ Mark (12:29)
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. ~ Deuteronomy 6:4
Jesus was a MUSLIM (Meaning: One who seeks the will of God and Submits to will of God), So am I; Jesus did miracles by permission of God and I believe that.
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to my will but of him who sent me. ~John (5:30)
I pray as Jesus (Peace be upon him).
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” ~Matthew (26:39)
I take ablution before prayer. ~ Exodus (40:30)
Ablution= washing for prayers
I greet people by saying “Peace be on you” like Jesus.
A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said,
“Peace be with you!” ~John (20:26)
Jesus fasted, I too do. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. ~ Matthew (4:2)
Jesus was circumcised as me and my brothers.
Eight days later, when the baby was circumcised, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel even before he was conceived
~ Luke (2:21)
I never drink alcohol, never give, or take interest, never eat pork as done by Jesus.
JESUS WAS A MUSLIM, SO AM I. Jesus was a Muslim.
• Evidence from the English translation of Luke 6:40 that further prove that the word
‘Muslim’ was used by Jesus: Luke 6:40 (KJV)
40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his
master. Luke 6:40 (Darby)
40 The disciple is not above his teacher, but every one that is perfected shall be as his
teacher. Luke 6:40 (Young’s Literal Translation)
40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone perfected shall be as his teacher.
The perfection here means a spiritual one.
What the verse is saying is that knowledge is not what matters! The teacher or master is higher in knowledge than his student. But the student can be as high as his teacher, or even higher, by being a true ‘MUSHLAM’ or Muslim, a spiritually perfect and well- disciplined person!
“Ein talmeed na’leh ‘al rabbo; shekken kal adam she’ MUSHLAM yihyeh k’rabbo.”
Taken from the Aramaic bible society.
This is further proved by the Arabic translation
• One cannot associate the word Muslim, without Islam, because if one does not submit to God alone, he/she/it, is not Muslim…. So why did Jesus use the word Muslim and never Christian in his lifetime why
