There has been much controversy surrounding the life of Jesus and the nature of his message and mission. God-willing, in this short entry, we hope to shed some insight into the genuine teachings of Jesus, the son of Mary.
Jesus was born to the best of all the women whomever walked the face of the Earth, namely, the Virgin Mary. Jesus was born in Bethlehem and he grew up in Palestine. While he was still young, he and his mother traveled to Egypt. Later, he returned to Palestine. At the age of thirty, the mission of Jesus began. The Creator made Jesus a Prophet and recipient of Divine Revelation.
Jesus was an Israelite Prophet–that is, a descendant Prophet Jacob (Israel). Prior to receiving Divine Revelation, Jesus followed genuine Mosaic Law—the Divine Guidance and Holy Scripture given to the great Prophet, Moses. Jesus’ Laws were similar to the Laws of Moses. Both Prophets enjoined prayer and fasting and forbade fornication, the worship of idols and images, and the eating of the swine.
Jesus taught the same message about the Creator that all the Prophets before him, such as, Moses, Abraham, Noah, and Adam taught. The Creator is Perfect and does not change, and the true belief in the Creator does not change. All the Prophets (including, Jesus) taught: “Worship the Creator and none of the creations.”
All the Prophets taught that the Creator is One without partners—no one other than God makes things exist. All the Prophets taught that the Creator is Eternal and Everlasting. The Creator has Knowledge and Power over everything. The Creator cannot be compared to anything—therefore, God is not a physical or spiritual body, nor is God an image. Whatever you conceive in your mind, the Creator is absolutely different from that. Jesus taught that the Creator does not need any of the creations, and that the Creator exists without being in a direction or a place.
The true monotheistic (i.e., belief in One Perfect God) message of Jesus was corrupted and replaced by the pagan idea of a Trinity. Jesus never taught that he was God or a part of God, nor did he teach that he was an offspring of God. The Trinity was an attempt to compromise the pure monotheistic message of Jesus with the belief of heathens who were using Jesus’ name to spread their own ideas… and their idolatry. It was not until the year 325 C.E.—three hundred years after God made Jesus leave this world—that the Roman Emperor Constantine (who was a pagan sun worshiper at the time) made the Trinity the official Christian doctrine.
Furthermore, it is a fact of history that Jesus never ever called his religion Christianity! Similarly, the New Testament is not the original Evangel—that is, the God-given Holy Book sent to Jesus. Instead, the present day New Testament is simply a book of hearsay and unconfirmed reports about what Jesus allegedly said and did—written by authors whose identity cannot be proven. This book was not completed until three hundred years after Jesus was here on Earth! And lastly, the oldest New Testaments are not in the language that Jesus taught his followers (that is, Aramaic). Instead, the oldest available New Testaments (which, incidentally, are simply fragments from pages of very old manuscripts) are in Greek—and no one knows who translated them! Since Jesus did not instruct his followers in Greek, it is obvious that the New Testament cannot be the Holy Book of Jesus.1 (The Encyclopedia Americana, vol. 3, page 694 says:
“The contents of the New Testament as we have it today were not fully compiled until the fourth century…. But alas, we do not have the autographs [handwritten originals], or any of the very earliest copies. Of the New Testament writings, the greatest period of textual change and alteration was in the second century…” [our emphasis])
The name “Christianity”, its doctrines (such as, the Trinity), and its book (the New Testament) are all man-made corruptions of Jesus’ true message. They are NOT from the teachings of God Revealed to Jesus—but from men with evil intentions who wished to distort the Message of this honorable Prophet. With that said, it would lead the truth seeker to ask one basic question: “What exactly did Jesus teach?”
All the Prophets taught the same essential message about the Creator. Jesus was not a Christian. Prophet Moses truly did not call his religion Judaism or Christianity. And obviously, Abraham, Noah, and Adam could not have been Christians or Jews—yet, they all had a religion. In truth, all the Prophets followed the same religion—the religion of Islam. Islam means, “surrender to the Orders of God”.
Prophet Muhammad came about 600 years after God made Jesus ascend safely to the Heavens. Prophet Muhammad renewed the call to believing in the Oneness and Perfection of God. Prophet Muhammad came with hundreds of astounding miracles to prove that he is a Prophet sent by God, and God has protected the Message of Prophet Muhammad from being lost.
God is One. God is Incomparable and Free-of-Need. God is not a body and cannot be crucified. God cannot be murdered or harmed, and God does not die. God is Perfect and does not undergo changes. God did not become a baby; God does not have babies; and babies are not born in sin. Also, God does not need someone to be killed to forgive the sins of others. One does not bear the sins of another, but rather, each person is accountable for his religious belief and his actions and will be judged by God accordingly. This is what Jesus taught.
If a person sincerely loves Jesus and wishes to follow his religion, he cannot do so by following the misguided doctrines of Paul and man-made doctrine of the Trinity. He must believe the truth about Jesus as reported by the final Prophet, Muhammad, who lived 1,400 years ago. For a person to earn the ultimate success, which is, to dwell forever in Paradise, one must believe in the Absolute Oneness and Perfection of God, and one must believe in the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad while testifying with the Declaration of Faith with the intention to become Muslim. One says:
“I BEAR WITNESS NOTHING IS WORTHY OF WORSHIP EXCEPT ALLAH, AND I BEAR WITNESS MUHAMMAD IS THE PROPHET OF ALLAH.”2
By saying this, one becomes Muslim—and one becomes a genuine follower of the Religion of the honorable Prophet Jesus and all the other Prophets.
Praise be to the Creator and the Creator knows best!!!
