Doesn't matter if I'm not following the majority. Even Allah warns us of doing that. Surah 6:116
Let's see whose words is the truth:-
Surah 6:116 Pickthal
If thou obeyedst most of those on earth they would mislead thee far from Allah's way. They follow naught but an opinion, and they do but guess.
Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
Now, it is not the majority shall decide which words are from GOD but the validity of the 2 truthful eye-witnesses which made the difference. So the words of your Book is mere opinion similar to any wise man. The Law of God in the Torah is that matters. On the Day of Judgment the words of men shall perish in thin air as only the words of Yeshua shall stand the test of time.
Mat 5:17 [Yeshua said] Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall BREAK one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
The words of Yeshua are the commandments of God. So listen to this Law of God.
Matthew 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Did Quran pass the test of 2 truthful witnesses to establish the truth of the words in your Book??? I have told you that Iblis is very cunning and your allah cannot command him to obey his order as he refused to worship Adam. So you are now in danger of being deceived by Iblis if you still refused to believe the words of Yeshua and apply it to test the truth of your Book.
Quran is not the words of Gabriel nor from God. Muhammad is not a valid eye-witnesses to all the accounts in the Quran and therefore not a valid witness according to the Law of God. He did not write the Quran himself but it was written by uninspired men who are not prophets nor apostles.
"Conclusion: Based God's law on the account of 2 or 3 truthful witnesses, the matter is established that Yeshua was crucified and rose from His dead on the Third Day:
Anyone who believes in the Second Coming doctrine is in for a big surprise. And don't say you weren't warned, sport. :P
You may not be surprised on the Day of Judgment unless you have not renounced Yeshua as the Savior once you were a Baptist Christian. The grace of Yeshua will be exhausted if you keep attacking the works of the salvation plan of God. How did Noah save his family from the big flood???
"2Pe 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were EYEWITNESSES of his majesty."
Caught you in a lie.
"Then all the disciples forsook him and fled." Mat. 26:56, Mark 14:50
Peter? Luke 22:54 denies Jesus 3 times, Luke 22:62
They all ran off.
Oh wait... Is that.. Is that a contradiction in your Book? :D
Are you so foolish for not looking further the works of Simon Peter? If you cannot read the whole Book of the Bible, do not comment on anything by looking a few verses which do not reflect the whole picture of the life of Peter.
Mat 26:55 At that hour Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me.
Mat 26:56 But all this has taken place that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples left him and fled.
Mat 26:57 Then those who had seized Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders had gathered.
Mat 26:58 And Peter was following him at a distance, as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end.
You are corrupting the words of the Bible which shall bring destruction to your soul unless you repent.
Peter have to be restored by 3 times of re-confession. But you may not have time to confess if God take your life tonight! Do not fool and mock God.
John 21:14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
Joh 21:15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."
Joh 21:16 He said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep."
Joh 21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.
Joh 21:18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go."
Joh 21:19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, "Follow me."
The testimony of Apostle John and Matthew shall establish the truth.
1Jn 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life--
1Jn 1:2 the life was made manifest, and we have SEEN it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us--
1Jn 1:3 that which we have SEEN and HEARD we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
1Jn 1:4 And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.
1Jn 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1Jn 1:6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
1Jn 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
"Peter was amongst the three witnesses"
According to Scripture, he denied Isa (pbuh) 3 times and ran like a scared little girl.
Or do you deny the Gospels According To in favor of the teachings of a man who is not a Prophet of Allah?
Apostle John and James also testified about the works of Yeshua.
Jas 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings.
Jas 1:2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,
Jas 1:3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
Jas 1:4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Jas 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Jas 1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
Jas 1:7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
Jas 1:8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Jas 1:9 Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation,
Jas 1:10 and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away.
Jas 2:19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe--and shudder!
Jas 2:20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?
You believe in one God and Satan believe that too! What make you difference from Satan to convince God to save your soul and not of the Satan?
"Jesus was raised alive to God on the day of crucifixion and not died a natural death as based on the words of Muhammad in Quran saying:"
See previous letters. It is clear and apparent you don't listen or comprehend English.
Surah 4:157-158 refute your false claim.
"You are not a follower of Jesus and thus you cannot interpret the Holy Scripture of the Christians. Do you believe Jesus is the Lord? If not, you do not have the Holy Spirit in you to guide you and understand the inspired scripture of the Christians."
Where is your proof of this claim?
Explanation is not proof. :P
Surah 10:94 Pickthal
And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers.
Muhammad says in Surah 10:94 that Allah gave the authority to the Christians and Jews to interpret the scripture. So when Muhammad was in doubt, he could ask the People of the Book for clarification.
Christians are superior based on Surah 3:55; followers of Jesus are superior till the Day of Resurrection. So when Christians interpret the scripture, Muslims have to submit to it by obeying Surah 10:94. Allah made no provision to refer to him alone when you are in doubt. Instead Allah advised Muhammad to ask those who read the scripture before him.
No servant is greater than his Master. No follower is greater than his Leader. So Muslims are not greater or better than Muhammad to interpret the scripture the way you like. Instead ask the People of the Book in accordance with Surah 10:94 when you are in doubt. The interpretation of the scripture from the People of the Book is FINAL. No further argument over the same topic.
