Misquoting the Bible for making the doctrines of Trinity and Deity of Christ

In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet Muhammad his family and companions
Peace and blessings be upon all the Prophets of Allah



Today, the topic we are discussing is:

Misquoting the Bible for making the doctrines of Trinity and Deity of Christ:

In this session, we will quote the verses and explain why it is a misquote!

Misquoted Verse 1
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

After quoting this verse, Christians claims that , this child is Messiah and he is the mighty God and ever lasting father!

The Truth:

Disciples who were given Holy Spirit (the Spirit who supposed to teach everything and guide into all the Truth) did not say Isaiah 9:6 speaks about Christ!. They did not say, Jesus is the Mighty God or Everlasting Father. Which prove this is  a new teaching and new doctrine!

Moreover, Christ himself refutes such attempts to attribute this verses to him out of the context!

Matthew 23:9 And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

The revelations are progressive and Christ denies the false attribution of Isaiah 9:6 to him!. There is only "One Everlasting Father" according to the Biblical language, that is the LORD Alone!

Christian doctrine also agrees Jesus is not the Father!. So it is illogical to invent two everlasting Fathers when Jesus is not the Father and vice versa!

Matthew 10:34 "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Which again Prove that Prince of Peace in Isaiah 9:6 cannot be attributed to Christ! Even in the second coming he is coming to bring sword and punish those lawless and sinners!

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you. Also see John 16:7-9


Misquoted Verse 2-

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

The wonderful counselor to come is the Advocate, the Spirit of Truth (Al Ameen, as-Sadiq, the last Prophet Nabi Muhammad, Peace and blessings be upon him). Even before the Prophethood , the Prophet of Islam was known as "Al Ameen and As-Sadiq" The trustworthy and the Truthful"

John 14:17 is misquoted to refute Islam, to say, Prophet Muhammad is man, and Spirit of Truth , the world cannot see him or know him!

Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: Also see Job 16:19

Which prove the Advocate is not hidden Spirit! 

Again  John 16:7-9 agree to Job 19:25 and Islamic claim, that the Advocate will come and teach the whole world. He will become manifest among people, he will stand in their midst!
he will come with sword, Isaiah 42:11-17

John 16:7-10 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgement:about sin, because people do not believe in me;about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;and about judgement, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.

John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

This prophesies did not fulfil in the Churches, Churches entered together with the world in to the Darkness of the Medieval Period!

When the Advocate comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong direction about religious knowledge! As Jesus himself testifies that, the Light will decline after him!

John 12:35 Jesus replied, “My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going.


The verses in John 16:7-10 Prove that, the Advocate will bring true Faith, Spirituality and Law to convict the world in each realm of human existence!

Only Islam today can bring full guidance on Theology, Law and Spiritual sciences (Tasawwuf)

John 16:13 speaks that the Advocate speaks only by Revelation, and declare the future events! This is mentioned in the Quran 53 that the Prophet speaks only what he hears!

Prophet's fellowship with Angel Gabriel, whom some scholars say is the Holy Spirit , is also mentioned in the Bible.
Revelation 14:6 who teach everlasting good News (the Quran) to the Humanity!

Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; NASB

No Gospel authors claimed that the Bible they were teaching is given from An Angel from the Midheaven!. It only fit for the Quran , as it is stated in Quran chapter 53.

Islam explains everything to Mankind!
While Christian scholarship is unable to explain the Biblical prophesies correctly, and are  still in confusion about the prophesies in the Bible, Islamic eschatology is thriving and explaining the Prophesies in Islam with full accuracy !


Misquoted Verse-3

"I and Father are One" (John 10:30)

This verse clearly prove that, Jesus did not make himself equal to God, this statement is part of an entire conversation and which is ignored!
Those who quote ignores John 10:29 and goes on making doctrines out of the context!

John 10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.

John 14:28 ,,,,,,,I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

Christ says that when he go back to the Father the Father is greater than him, which prove there is no trinity in the heaven!

So those who formulated doctrines of Christianity done it outside of the Bible and then taking Bible verses  from here and there cherry picked!to make it look like it is in the Bible! 

Christ (Peace be upon him) explains the Oneness he is talking about!

John 17:21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

God will not give glory to another, (see Isaiah 42:8 and 48:11), but in this Oneness Jesus imparted his glory to his disciples!

John 17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one--

This verses clearly refutes and exposes the doctrines of co-equal co-eternal deity and Trinity!

Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols.

We can understand that the glory here is "the Image of God" in which God Created Man and Man must strive to attain this glory of living in the Image of His Creator, to be His Servant and Ambassador!

Misquoted verse 4:

John 10:33 "We are not stoning you for any good work," they replied, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

This is probably the dearest verse to Christians.  They quoted this verse to prove Jesus is God!.  However Jesus Christ rejects this lies of Jews against him!. Christians embraced this lie and false accusation of Jesus on Christ, to make Deity and Trinity!. This itself is prove the Jewish origin of Christian doctrines!

In the Next verses Christ refuted Jews and denies their accusation! and today, it is equally relevant to refute Trinity and Deity of Christ!

John 10:34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are "gods"'?
John 10:35 If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came--and Scripture cannot be set aside--
John 10:36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?

Psalm 82:6-7 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”

We can see that the statement of "Mighty God"(Isaiah 9:6) is in accordance with the Law  and it is misused by the Christian scholarship to make doctrine of Trinity!

This verses prove that Jesus Christ did not claim to be God!

Further verses in the Gospel of John attest this!

John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

John 20:17 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'"


Misquoted Verse 5:

John 20:28 Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!"

See the previous answer and read below!

Thomas and disciples did not worship Jesus as Deity!, see previous articles!

The statement Lord and God given to Christ must be understood in the context of the Gospel of John , not according to what your own mind feels!

In John 20: 24Now Thomas (also known as Didymus ), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

In this statement we can see that Thomas was looking to see the Human Jesus, he was looking for  Human Jesus as his arguments with the disciples prove this!

So definitely he was not saying "my God and my LORD" to Christ!
He was praising the Almighty in wonder and amusement!. That's why they did not worship Jesus at that point!

Because we can see from the context that that Thomas was wondering seeing Christ,this is part of human nature!

Even to this day, when people see something unbelievable, they say, My my God!. This does not mean that ,they are seeing God while looking at the amazing wonders!

Misquoted Verses-6
 Christians misquoted over 6 verses to prove that Jesus was worshipped as God! But they were not deity worship!

Matthew 14:23 Then those who were in the boat came and worshipped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”

What does the word "son of God" meaning?
It means, the Apostle and High priest of God, not God! See John 10:34-36

see Hebrews 5:5 In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father."

We can see that in the Biblical language the "Son" is a phrase to describe "someone's priesthood".

But Christians took it literally and made Jesus as the begotten son of God!

Previous High Priests and Apostles too were worshipped!

Daniel 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.

There are many more to say, but this is enough for those who have understanding!

There is no ritual deity worship in this acts. No recitation of Scriptures,  no songs of Praise , nothing!, just greeting and kissing hand and feet!. Even today such worship is received by Royals, Imams, Rabbis and Popes, Pundits etc!

John 4:23 NLT But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Matthew 15:9 'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.'" NASB

If Christ says that in vain they worship him, and thus worship God in Vain through worshipping his servant Jesus (Acts 3:13,4:27) then it is clear that the worship of Jesus in the New Testament was not deity worship!

Christian scholarship desperately quote it without thinking at all, to understand they were acts of reverences . When asked why Jesus did not say he is God, Christians say that his deity was not revealed until he was resurrected !

So then why are they quoting verses before the resurrection, to claim that those verses that talk about "worshipped Jesus " is Deity worship!?


Misquoted Verses 7: Colossians 2:8 and Philippians 2:6

PROPHET MOSES, PROPHET ELIJAH AND CHRIST (peace and blessings of Allah Be upon them) :

According to the New Testament, Prophet Moses and Prophet Elijah appeared before Christ (Peace be upon them) in glorious splendor


They did not consider Jesus as God.or deity. They saw him as fellow brother and Prophet.

Christian trinitarian theologians write :"Moses wrote about Jesus" quotes while trying to establish the Trinity doctrines , so if they knew beforehand Jesus is deity, then we should have seen in his name everyone shall kneel down applied to Moses and Elijah as well (Peace be upon them) But such things not happen at all in the story.

See Mark 9: 2 after six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. 3His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

5Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6(He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)

7Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

8Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.

NOBODY WORSHIPPED CHRIST AS DEITY:

Ephesians 3:Paul's Prayer for the Ephesians:

14For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

EVERYONE IN EPHESUS TO BECOME RABBANIYYIN LIKE CHRIST :
Ephesians 3: 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

This Refute Christians using Colossians 2:9 to say Jesus is Deity :

Colossians 2:9
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form,

Ephesians 3:19 explains everyone attain fulness of God in Faith and in Union.

See John 17:21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

SO STUDY SUFISM (TASAWWUF) AND SAVE YOURSELF FROM MISGUIDANCE ERROR AND HERESY :
SAHIH BUKHARI :
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (ra) who said:

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’ ”

[Bukhari]

This is what the Gospel teach about the life of Christ and all Holy saints who brought near to God Almighty.
There is no Trinity or DEITY in others, but unity of the relationship (Fanaa Fillah) between the Creator and pure servants from among the Creations who were brought closer to the Creator.
Also, note that the word 'son' is a Greek Philosophical connotation for 'high priest ' read Hebrews 5:5

Then you will know the Truth and Truth will set you free...

I think this is enough to understand that God is One and One Person, not Three Persons and Trinity!, Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) is His Servant (Act 3:13) and Apostle (Hebrews 3:1)
Which is summarized in John 17:3 and John 20:17

Peace be upon the Messengers of Allah

Praise be to Allah the LORD of All Creations

The ways of Antichrist
