the questions commonly asked by Muslims:-
in the Bible Jesus said, "I am God, worship me".
himself worshipped One God. Does God worship God?"
Jesus is God then, When Jesus was crucified, it means, God died
was on the throne when Jesus was in this world?
himself asked God for help. Does God ask God for help? This also shows
that Jesus was not All-Mighty, whereas God is truly All-Mighty.
Jesus is God then why He needed to comedown to this world and give His
life? He could have done it sitting on His throne.
Jesus Is God, Why Does He Pray in the Gospels?
ate, slept, drank, went to the bathroom just like other human beings.
Clearly, he is a human being - a great one - a messenger of God and
a prophet, but no more than that.
Jesus was never called, "Son of God" but He was only called,
"Son of Man"
did not die nor resurrected from the dead. If we consider that alleged
resurrection took place then why there is no evidence of resurrection?
was not crucified himself nor was he sent to this world to die on a
cross for anyone's sins! Matthew 26:39, "He went a little farther
and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is
possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but
as You will." So, from the above verse you should see that this
cannot be a person who was prepared for the claimed sacrifice, rather
a person who was afraid to die like any normal human would be!
of all, no one witnessed him rose again. Secondly, look at his appearance
after the "alleged" resurrection. If Jesus is God then I am
still wondering why no one recognized the man who claimed to be Jesus,
like your worship of Jesus in vain, whereas Jesus himself tells you
otherwise, read John 17:3, especially the words "THE ONLY TRUE
GOD, and Jesus WHOM YOU HAVE SENT", this makes the worship of Jesus
a worship of a FALSE god since there is THE ONLY TRUE GOD WHO SENT JESUS.
Christians you do not respect his holy and complete adjectives and you
as your friend as you had seen before as you live with him.
us see what Jesus said about Himself: -
the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath." (Matthew 12:8)
the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath."(Mark 2:28)
me deal every question raised by Muslims one by one.
Nowhere in the Bible Jesus said, "I am God, worship
there ever any need for him to? Let me ask this question. Did you ever
hear George W. Bush speaking about himself.. saying, "I am the
president of USA. Please respect me?" The fact is, I never heard
him saying like this but every one knows that he is the president of
USA. How do we know? Because he is the president of USA. So there is
no need to say, what he is. And the same thing is with Jesus. He need
not to say, "I am God, worship me." However many a times Jesus
said that, "He is God" and that "He is the Son of God."
Jesus does not need to say that, "I am God, worship me" but
still He said in many places that He is God. And Jesus was worshipped
by people, demons, angels and heavenly hosts.
Jesus was worshipped by all
Jesus was worshipped by people:
Three wise men inquired about Jesus saying,
"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen
His star in the East and have come to worship Him." (Matthew 2:2)
followed the star and they went to the place where Jesus was born and
worshipped Him as we read in Matthew 2:11, "And when they had come
into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell
down and worshipped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they
presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
we see that when Jesus rose up from the dead and appeared before His
disciples, they worshipped Him.
He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed
it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them
and carried up into heaven.
they worshipped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.
2. Jesus was worshipped by demons
Bible very clearly says that demons and those
who had unclean spirits worshipped Jesus. We read in Mark 3:11, "And
the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and
cried out, saying, "You are the Son of God."
Mark 5th chapter we see about a demon possessed person, when
he saw Jesus, he came running and worshipped Him as we read in Mark
he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshipped Him."
he cried out with a loud voice and said, "What have I to do with
You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You
do not torment me."
3. Jesus was worshipped
by Angels and heavenly hosts
Jesus was worshipped by angels and heavenly
hosts - Revelation 7:10, "and crying out with a loud voice, saying,
belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" All
the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living
creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped
God, saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving
and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen."
Bible also says in Revelation 5:13-14,
every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth
and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:
"Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the
throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"
the four living creatures said, "Amen!" And the twenty-four
elders fell down and worshipped Him who lives forever and ever."
the question arises, if Jesus is not God then why did He allow people,
demons heavenly hosts and angels to worship Him? Once Paul went to Lystra
and there was a certain man sitting having no strength in his feet,
a cripple from his mother's womb, who had never walked. This man heard
Paul speaking. Paul, observing him intently and seeing that he had faith
to be healed, said with a loud voice, "Stand up straight on your
feet!" And he leaped and walked. (Acts 14:8-10)
when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying
in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in the
likeness of men!"
Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief
the priest of Zeus, whose temple was in front of their city, brought
oxen and garlands to the gates, intending to sacrifice with the multitudes.
when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard this, they tore their clothes
and ran in among the multitude, crying out
saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with
the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from
these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth,
the sea, and all things that are in them,
in bygone generations allowed all nations to walk in their own ways.
He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave
us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food
with these sayings they could scarcely restrain the multitudes from
sacrificing to them.
and Barnabas tried to desist them from worshipping them while Jesus
never denied to be worshipped. And we read another instance in Revelation
19:10, "And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me,
"See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of
your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the
testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
tried to worship the angel but the angel said, "see that you do
not do that!" and asked him to worship God. Why? Because there
is none who is worthy to be worshipped except God. And because Jesus
is God, He was worshipped by people, demons, angels and heavenly hosts.
