MUHAMMAD DENIES THE DIVINITY OF JESUS (8)
Muhammad’s Allah thinks the Trinity could go to war like Greek gods.
(…continues from part seven…)
8) Al-Mu’minun 23:91 Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have [sought to] overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him].
The Tafsir – Allah has no Partner or Associate Allah declares Himself to be above having any child or partner in dominion, control and worship. He says: No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with Him. (If there had been many gods), then each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others. Meaning, if it were decreed that there should be a plurality of deities, each of them would have exclusive control over whatever he had created, so there would never be any order in the universe. But what we see is that the universe is ordered and cohesive, with the upper and lower realms connected to one another in the most perfect fashion. You can see no fault in the creation of the Most Gracious. (67:3). Moreover, if there were a number of gods, each of them would try to subdue the other with enmity, and one would prevail over the other. Allah says: And some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allah above all that they attribute to Him! Meaning, high above all that the stubborn wrongdoers say when they claim that He has a son or partner.
The Members of the Godhead
The Trinity is a theological issue. Would I accept the idea of deistic partnership of the Members of the Godhead? To address Them as partners means They decided to be the Trinity after careful consideration of the creation business. The Trinity of Jehovah is purely an essence of the Godhead. Godhead was initially couched ‘Godhood’, meaning ‘state of being Deity’. In the Godhood is the existence of Three distinct Persons of Divine individualities. The idea of salvation in Muhammad’s Islamism has absolutely nothing in the semblance to Christian soteriological didacticism, which had appropriately received its documentation in the Bible, beginning with the Pentateuch, from fifteenth century BC. The very first time ‘God’ appears in the Bible, it was the Hebraic Ělohîym (plural of Ĕlôahh). Both the Hebraic plural and singular for God, the Creator, abound in the Scriptures. Elohim appears over 2,340 times and Eloahh comes 57 times. More of these times are in reference to the true God of the Bible.
The Trinity is a conundrum.
In the Trinitarian essence, One is called the Father, not in the erroneous sense of paternity or eldest among the Persons of deified involvement; neither is the Father a by-product of dialecticism, borne out of philosophical dribble of theoretical equivocations. He is the Father: for He sits eternally on the empyrean throne. The Second Member of the Godhead is the One visible to the beings of our sinful world. His goings forth has been from of old. He is older than eternity which is a product of creationism, creationism being the handiwork of the Second Member of the Godhead. He, the Second Member, receives due celestial adoration proving His Godhood. The Third Member of the Godhead is not, in any way, less in dignity, power, wisdom and Omnipresence. Why would God, Who does as He wills, decide to manifest in the Trinity?
Inanimate objects and intelligent beings must not be the mode of schooling the Creator to experience plurality. God’s existence must be of every good and positive reality before creation of beings. Experience of phenomenality of plurality must first be of Him, in Whom all things consist. Therefore, before anything came into being, God had the manifestation of the Trinity, so that documentation of historicity will not boast of “once upon a time” when God could not truly apply the concept of, “I, You, We.” It is a theological expediency for God to make an address of, “You,” in reference to a plural of Deities – Christ and the Holy Spirit – of equality. While the first reason is definitely of Divine appositeness, the second borders on God’s soteriological beneficence, solely for the Adamic spiritual errancy.
Muhammad teaches the vitiation of the Trinity teaching eventual conflict among them.
The religious didacticism of Islamism in contradistinction to biblical Christianity is the Christological quiddity. Try removing the Jesus, the Divine Messiah, from the Qur’an: absolutely nothing will be amiss. Now, take away the Christ from the Christian Book, and what happens? The Bible will become useless, having nothing left of it with the expunction of Jesus, the Word of God, the Author of soteriology, the Second Member of the Godhead, Which is, and which was, which is to come, Christ, the Almighty. If Jesus’ asseveration of “I and my Father are one,” and Pauline revelation of Him says, “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” (Hebrews 1:3); cannot we see that Jesus, being the essence of our redemption, is irremovable owing to the facticity of His eternality. To delete Jesus Christ is to delete the eternal, celestial demesne of the LORD God, the Creator, and consequently yourself and the entire creation. He, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, from the eternal past is as uncreated as all the Members of the Godhead.
Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. You were born in sin. Say this sinner’s prayer.
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
