Home Page The Almighty is Life...may He richly bless you in your faith!
[an-Nisa' 4:171] O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not "Three" - Cease! (it is) better for you! - Allah is only One God. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.
The statement: "Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son." Is the same as: "the Almighty cannot have a son."
This is an oxymoron.
oxymoron n : conjoining contradictory terms (as in `deafening silence')
To say a being is "Almighty" is to say that being has NO LIMITS.
al·might·y (ôl-mt) adj. 1.Having absolute power; all-powerful: almighty God.
Saying a being with limitless power CANNOT have a son - means that being is not almighty and is limited in his power.
Islam by the Koran states emphatically: Allah cannot have a son. Thus contradicting and invalidating itself.
Islam and the Koran fail because they deny Jesus Christ is The Son of God.
[Luke 20:17] But he looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner? 18 Every one who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls on any one it will crush him."
To accept Jesus Christ is the Son of God Almighty, is to accept all that He implies - in other words - the gospel: Jesus is The Miracle, Jesus is The Son of God, Jesus is Salvation, Jesus is Lord.
[Mat 19:26] But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Why would anybody want to worship a god who has limits, a god who couldn't?
John the Baptist is considered a true prophet of God by Islam, yet, when you talk to any of them, they deny most everything he said.
The witness of John the Baptist:
But when you talk to a Moslem, they confuse you and put doubt in your mind by saying the gospel and the torah we have today are unreliable and corrupted.

This naturally leads to the most fascinating book ever written on the language of the Koran, and if proved to be correct in its main thesis, probably the most important book ever written on the Koran. Christoph Luxenberg's book, Die Syro-Aramaische Lesart des Koran, available only in German, came out just over a year ago, but has already had an enthusiastic reception, particularly among those scholars with a knowledge of several Semitic languages at Princeton, Yale, Berlin, Potsdam, Erlangen, Aix-en-Provence, and the Oriental Institute in Beirut.
Luxenberg tries to show that many obscurities of the Koran disappear if we read certain words as being Syriac and not Arabic. We cannot go into the technical details of his methodology but it allows Luxenberg, to the probable horror of all Muslim males dreaming of sexual bliss in the Muslim hereafter, to conjure away the wide-eyed houris promised to the faithful in suras XLIV.54; LII.20, LV.72, and LVI.22. Luxenberg 's new analysis, leaning on the Hymns of Ephrem the Syrian, yields "white raisins" of "crystal clarity" rather than doe-eyed, and ever willing virgins - the houris. Luxenberg claims that the context makes it clear that it is food and drink that is being offerred, and not unsullied maidens or houris.
In Syriac, the word hur is a feminine plural adjective meaning white, with the word "raisin" understood implicitly. Similarly, the immortal, pearl-like ephebes or youths of suras such as LXXVI.19 are really a misreading of a Syriac expression meaning chilled raisins (or drinks) that the just will have the pleasure of tasting in contrast to the boiling drinks promised the unfaithful and damned.
Just how intelligent is it to blow yourself up for a hand full of raisins?
This list varies, in some, they list "LORD" at the top. So whose list is correct?
From the Encyclopedia Brittanica:
Allat - North Arabian goddess of pre-Islamic times to whom a stone cube at at-Ta'if (near Mecca) was held sacred as part of her cult. Two other North Arabian goddesses, Manat (Fate) and al-'Uzza (Strong), were associated with al-Lat in the Qur'an (Islamic sacred scriptures). The Prophet Muhammad once recognized these three as goddesses, but a new revelation led him to abrogate the approving verses he had earlier recited and to abandon his attempt to placate Meccan pagans. Members of the tribe of Quraysh circumambulated the Ka'bah in Mecca (now a central shrine of Islam in Mecca's al-Haram mosque) chanting the praises of al-Lat, al-'Uzza, and Manat. Each of the three had main sanctuaries near Mecca that were sites of pious visits and offerings until Muhammad ordered them destroyed. The goddesses were also worshipped by various Arab tribes located as far away as Palmyra, Syria.
If the Qur'an is the perfect word of the Almighty, why did Mohammed have to edit (abrogate) it? It brings the entire text into question. Abrogation is one of the major reasons I cannot accept Islam as the "True Religion".
If the Jinn could have tricked Mohammed into writing one verse wrong, Mohammed could have been tricked into writing the whole thing. From what I have read, the text of the Qur'an has been abrogated in many places. This is very troubling.
How can a person commit the fate of his eternal soul to the text of a book that may have been dictated by a demon; a text that may in the future be edited (abrogated) out by an expert in Islam?
Regardless, the point I am trying to make is: The Almighty has no limits. And Islam's attempts to distance itself from the Son of the Almighty - just hurts it.
The essential meaning of Jesus Christ crucified is - self sacrifice in obedience to the Almighty. I have always been told, the meaning of Islam is - self sacrifice in obedience to the Almighty.
Praise Lord God!
