The Love of God

Christ Cursed?

Muslim:; Jesus is cursed (Galatians 3:13) Verses Jesus is not cursed (Psalms 72:17)

Christian: Jesus was both; cursed on earth and blessed in Heaven.

Muslim: The apologists are willing to stoop to new lows to avoid a disparity. It’s shocking that they’re willing to call their presumed God and savior “Cursed” while the Bible says it’s Satan who’s the cursed one (Genesis 3:14).

Muslim: The Quran corrects the Biblical insult on Prophet Jesus by saying Jesus was blessed on earth and the Afterlife:

“Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah” (Quran 3:45)

Collective Punishment

Muslim: God does not punish the children for the sins of the parents (Ezekiel 18:20) Verses “the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations”. (Exodus 20:5)

Christian: Guilt is not passed on but consequences are.

Muslim: First, (Ezekiel 18:20) does not differentiate between guilt or consequence, only inequity and righteousness. Second, guilt in many cases is as bad as or worse than the consequences, for example; Edgar Allen Poe’s story “The Tell Tale Heart.” Third, many other verses from the Bible do not differentiate with which aspect of sin is not passed; (Jeremiah 31:30), (Psalms 49:7), (Deuteronomy 24:16)

Muslim: God only punishes those who are transgressors and disbelievers. In contrast to the Bible, God does not collectively punish in the Quran.

“Who receiveth guidance, receiveth it for his own benefit: who goeth astray doth so to his own loss: No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent an messenger (to give warning).” (Qur’an 17:15)

Forgiveness before Jesus?

Muslim: People before Jesus went to Heaven (2 Kings 2:11) Verses No one will go to Heaven unless they accept Jesus (John 10:9, 14:6).

Christian: The Bible confirms that previous prophets believed in God (James 2:23), which is the same as believing in Jesus.

Muslim: According to Paul, believing in Jesus was not enough; one had to accept the supposed blood sacrifice of Jesus (Romans 5:9) which was impossible for previous people to postulate because Jesus had not yet come to earth.

Muslim: The Holy Qur’an displays a fair system of salvation, which gives accountability to past and future creations of God.

“… No laden soul will bear another’s load.” (Qur’an 39:7)

And

“Surely Allah does not do injustice to the weight of an atom, and if it is a good deed He multiplies it and gives from Himself a great reward.” (Qur’an 4:40)

Like all humans all over the world , we desire Love , it is what makes us complete . Some are even willing to overlook Truth in order to attain Love .

In Islam , you don’t have to make any sacrifices , you can have both Truth and Love in God together .

First we must know what True Love is . True Love is a two way street . This means we take Love as well as we give Love .

For example , Loving Jesus:

Muslims love Jesus more than Christians according to the Meaning of True Love . This is because if you Love someone , you would care for them .

There is doubt within the Gospel as to whether or not Jesus died on the cross , with some evidence from scholars that perhaps Jesus did not die .

This should make the Christians happy that Jesus was Saved instead of insisting he was put through a horrifying long painful death .

The Christians don’t have Love with God , but rather Greed towards God . If the Christians had True Love with God , than they would be Happy to learn Jesus was not killed but rather it appeared as if he was killed , similar to Jesus appearing to be a unknown gardener to his mother in the Cave (John 20:15)

Instead , the Christians ventilate that Jesus suffered and bled and was filled with pain and anguish .

Is it Love to insist this happened to someone you love even though some evidence suggests it may not have happened ? Of course not , this is the farthest thing from Love.

If someone you Love was kidnapped , and there was some evidence the one you love is safe, would you insist they are not safe?

To Love is to Share , another way Muslims Love Jesus more than the Christians is that we do not pass our sins to Jesus , we take responsibility for our own sins . We believe Jesus was sent by God to assist Israel return to the Straight path , Jesus never claimed he was sent to ((consume everyone’s sins)) , but instead to preach (which he did for over 30 years before returning to God) the good news of Peace .

If you Love your neighbor , would you take your garbage and put it at your neighbors door ? Absolutely not , you would take responsibility for your own garbage .

Christians in the scope of the big picture, are uncaring of Jesus , a bully to Jesus .

This is not to suggest that our Creator , the Father of us all , is ungiving , for the fact is , that God does give Love.

The Webster Dictionary meaning of the word “Love” is:

“passionate, warm attachment, affectionate”

The Holy Qur’an lists these attributes describing God , along with much more , for example , in the Holy Qur’an , our Creator is addressed as:

“Compassionate , Merciful , the Helper , the Nourisher , the Generous , the Guide , the Loving (al-Wadud in Arabic often translated into English as “the Kind One”) , the Raiser of the Dead , the Patient”

Thus showing how the God of Islam which is the same God of Abraham , Moses and Jesus , is in fact a God of Love .

Besides God being Defined as Love in the Holy Qur’an , we also see quotes of how God Gives us Love in the Qur’an: “… God loves the doers of justice.” (Holy Qur’an 60:8)

“… God loves those who are fair (and just). ” (Holy Qur’an 49.009)

” On those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, will (Allah) Most Gracious bestow love. ” (Holy Qur’an 19:96)

“…God loveth those who make themselves pure. ” (Holy Qur’an 9:108)

“… For God loves those who put their trust (in Him). ” (Holy Qur’an 3:159)

God in the Qur’an also gives Love unconditionally:

“It may be that God will ordain love between you and those of them with whom ye are at enmity. Allah is Mighty, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. ” (Holy Qur’an 60:7)

” And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. ” (Holy Qur’an 30:21)

“…for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided. ” (Holy Qur’an 3:103)

” And He is the Forgiving, the Loving, ” (Holy Qur’an 85:14)

The Qur’an reveals this false assertion that God only loves the Jews or the Christians:

“And the Jews and the Christians say: We are the sons of God and His beloved ones. Say: Why does He then chastise you for your faults? Nay, you are mortals from among those whom He has created, He forgives whom He pleases and chastises whom He pleases; and God’s is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and to Him is the eventual coming.” (Holy Qur’an 5:18)

This is not a attack on either Faith , it only rebukes the claims by Jews who say ‘only the children of Israel are the chosen people’ or the Christians who say ‘all non-Christians are demons’ This verse is only explaining that we are all from God and God loves us all .

In conclusion , there are many more examples but this is to demonstrate that True Love is both equally given as well as taken . Let us love each other, stand together as partners , praying to God and enjoying the Love and guidance manifested in the Holy Qur’an.
