The Beliefs of Christians is Similar to that of the Pagans according to Saint Justin Martyr

By Sami Zaatari


It has always been made clear that several and most of what Christians believe in such as the crucifixion of a savior, the unique son of God, are all just borrowed doctrines and terms from other pagan religions before Christianity. The evidence is there for all to see, however so, Christians always like to ignore this fact and simply act like they don’t know about it. Since Christians will not accept the fact that most of their beliefs come from paganism, doubting the information they read since they do not trust it, I shall say fine, let us play that game.

What I will do in this article is simple quote a Christian church Father and a Saint, this Saint happens to be Justin Martyr, The fact that this man has been given the title of Saint by Christians tells us that he is a very high and respected figure within Christianity.

Here is some information regarding Justin Martyr incase there are some Christians out there saying Justin Martyr is a nobody:

Christian apologist, born at Flavia Neapolis, about A.D. 100, converted to Christianity about A.D. 130, taught and defended the Christian religion in Asia Minor and at Rome, where he suffered martyrdom about the year 165. Two “Apologies” bearing his name and his “Dialogue with the Jew Tryphon” have come down to us. Leo XIII had a Mass and an Office composed in his honour and set his feast for 14 April.

For a full bio of Justin visit this link:

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08580c.htm

All his work alongside many other Church Fathers and Saints can be found on this link:

http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/

It is from one of his works that I shall be quoting from; the piece that I quote from is called ?The First Apology’.

With all this said, I shall now quote the relevant information from this Saint of Christianity:

CHAPTER XXI — ANALOGIES TO THE HISTORY OF CHRIST.

And when we say also that the Word, who is the first-birth of God, was produced without sexual union, and that He, Jesus Christ, our Teacher, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into heaven, we propound NOTHING DIFFERENT from WHAT YOU BELIEVE regarding those whom you esteem sons of JupiterFor you know how many sons your esteemed writers ascribed to Jupiter: Mercury, the interpreting word and teacher of all;AEsculapius, who, though he was a great physician, was struck by a thunderbolt, and so ascended to heaven; and Bacchus too, after he had been torn limb from limb; and Hercules, when he had committed himself to the flames to escape his toils; and the sons of Leda, and Dioscuri; andPerseus, son of Danae; and Bellerophon, who, though sprung from mortals, rose to heaven on the horse PegasusFor what shall I say of Ariadne, and those who, like her, have been declared to be set among the stars? And what of the emperors who die among yourselves, whom you deem worthy of deification, and in whose behalf you produce some one who swears he has seen the burning Caesar rise to heaven from the funeral pyre? And what kind of deeds are recorded of each of these reputed sons of Jupiter, it is needless to tell to those who already know. (Justin Martyrs First Apology:http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/0126.htm)

 

Notice what this man is saying, he is telling the Roman rulers that what the Christians believe in is nothing different than what the Roman pagans believe in, that Jupiter who is one of their gods also had sons, making them sons of god. Justin then goes on to mention other beliefs of these Roman pagans of people ascending into heaven just like Jesus did etc.

So if this is not enough prove that the Christian belief system is the same as the pagan beliefs then I don’t know what is! This Christian saint is saying it in plane words that what the Christians BELIEVE IN IS NOTHING DIFFERENT THAN WHAT THE ROMAN PAGANS BELIEVE IN, how much more clearly do you want it to be?!

This all proves that the Christian faith of Paul was simply another branch of paganism that popped out, the only difference is that Paul claimed it was from the true God and other forms of paganism was wrong. Paul borrowed all his beliefs from pagan religions that were around him, and centered it all on Jesus, and then he had the audacity to say the other pagans are wrong when he plagiarized their belief! What makes this all the more worst for the Christian faith is that Paul also destroyed the Jewish law given by God to Moses!

So Paul destroys God’s true law given to Moses, making it into nothing, and replaces it by pagan beliefs claiming that this is the true way! He has managed to fool up to a billion people into believing they believe in a true faith of God, when in fact they believe in paganism and that the true law from God is actually made into nothing and thrown away! The Jews living at the time of Paul were not dumb, they knew that Paul was destroying the Torah, which is exactly why they did not like him, however so the pagans loved Paul so his form of pagan Christianity succeeded and this is what you have today.

But no need to worry, Islam has come to abolish ALL forms of paganism including this one created by the anti-Christ Paul.

God is Greater than the Holy Spirit?

 

Sami Zaatari

 

 

 

As we all know Trinitarian Christians believe that the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all God.

 

One verse that we Muslims have shown to debunk the notion that Jesus is God is that of John 10:29 which reads as follows:

 

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

 

So as you can see Jesus states the Father is greater than all. Now this verse proves Jesus is not God since how can he be God if the Father is greater than him? The obvious answer is that he can’t. Since Christians know this is a problem they have come up with a nice answer saying that yes the Father is greater than the MAN Jesus, and not the divine Jesus.

 

This is a very nice answer with one major problem, Jesus never said anything about having a man and divine nature, Christians invented such a doctrine up to get rid of such problems! When Jesus is ignorant, they say it’s the man Jesus, when he prays; it’s the man Jesus and so on. Yet I repeat Jesus never said I have dual natures, this is a fabricated doctrine.

 

Now having said all that, what about the Holy Spirit? Notice the passage says that the Father is greater than ALL, this must include the Holy Spirit. Now unlike Jesus the Holy Spirit never supposedly took on a man nature and gave up on it’s divine nature, the Holy Spirit always remained as it is.

 

So therefore we have a clear verse that now states that the Father is GREATER than the Holy Spirit, and I ask how can that be if the Holy Spirit is God? The answer is simple, it can’t! The fact is is that the Holy Spirit is NOT God which is why the Father is greater than it, and the same goes for Jesus.

 

Neither Jesus nor the Holy Spirit are God which is precisely why the Father is greater than both of them, and why both of them are never called greater than the Father.

 

No Trinity I’m afraid.

Is Trinity Like “The Time”?!

By Sami Zaatari

In this article will continue to refute some more common analogies brought up to make sense of the Trinity, many Muslims may have fell for these deceptive analogies in the past, but when one really looks carefully at the analogy and what Trinity is one will then see the analogies are a distortion of what Trinity is and what Trinitarians actually believes in.

 

Let us now move on to some of Christians’ analogies:

 

Time is past, present, and future. There are not three times

 

RESPONSE

That is true, but is that Trinity? What this Christian does not tell the reader is that time is MADE UP OF past, present, and future. The past alone is not time, nor is the present alone, time is made up these 3 separate time frames.

 

However so, Christians say that Jesus IS God, they say that the Father IS God, we however do not say that the past IS time, we say the past is PART OF TIME.

 

Christians never ever say that Jesus is simply part of God, if you ask any Christian is Jesus God, they will not reply by saying ‘No Jesus is part of God’ rather they will respond by saying ‘Yes Jesus is God’.

 

Christians’ analogy would only work had Trinitarians gone around saying Jesus is part of God, that the Father is part of God, and that the Holy Spirit is part of God. Rather Christians say Jesus IS God, the Father IS God and so on, and since Jesus is not the Father and the Father is not Jesus, what you have is two Gods!

 

So yes this Christian is correct, we do not have three times but one time, since the past alone is not time, nor is the present alone time, rather the past present and future MAKE UP TIME. Does this Christian say that Jesus alone is not God? By that I mean does this Christian or any other Christian say that the person Jesus is not God? Do they say he is PART OF God or do they say he IS God?  

 

No Christian would ever dare say that Jesus the individual person is not God, but rather he is part of/makes up God, they would never dare say such a thing and in fact no Christian ever does! For proof of this go ask any Christian is Jesus God? See what their response is, see whether they say that yes Jesus is God, or no Jesus is part of God.

 

If Trinitarians such as this Christian believe in these analogies, then they should stop claiming that Jesus IS God, and they should stop responding to Muslim inquiries by saying yes Jesus IS God, they should rather start saying Jesus makes up God and is part of God. Sadly I do not think any Christians will use this approach since they know it is damaging and hurts them.

 

 

I rest my case, it is three Gods!

Christianity is Paganism !!

By Sami Zaatari

As much as some Christians would like to claim, that Christianity is a pure monotheistic faith, the fact of the matter is that when one studies what Christianity is, and what it teaches, one will see that Christianity is in fact a form of paganism. One only has to study several of the former major pagan religions from ancient Egypt to the Romans and the Greeks and one will find many similarities in the core beliefs between all of these pagans beliefs and Christianity.

 

Now when one studies the pagan religions of ancient Egypt, and that of the Greeks and Romans and all other pagan religions one will find that all of them are polytheists, believers in polytheism. None of them were monotheists nor did they believe in monotheism, this is why prophets were always sent throughout mankind’s history, to teach the people about monotheism, as the Quran tells us:

 

007.059
YUSUFALI: We sent Noah to his people. He said: “O my people! worship Allah! ye have no other god but Him. I fear for you the punishment of a dreadful day!

 

007.065
YUSUFALI: To the ‘Ad people, (We sent) Hud, one of their (own) brethren: He said: O my people! worship Allah! ye have no other god but Him will ye not fear (Allah)?”

 

007.073
YUSUFALI: To the Thamud people (We sent) Salih, one of their own brethren: He said: “O my people! worship Allah: ye have no other god but Him. Now hath come unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! This she-camel of Allah is a Sign unto you: So leave her to graze in Allah’s earth, and let her come to no harm, or ye shall be seized with a grievous punishment.

 

007.085
YUSUFALI: To the Madyan people We sent Shu’aib, one of their own brethren: he said: “O my people! worship Allah; Ye have no other god but Him. Now hath come unto you a clear (Sign) from your Lord! Give just measure and weight, nor withhold from the people the things that are their due; and do no mischief on the earth after it has been set in order: that will be best for you, if ye have Faith.

 

So prophets were sent throughout history to pagan societies to teach them about monotheism.

 

Ancient Egyptians had several God’s, they included:

 

Horus

Isis

Mont

Sobek

 

 

The ancient pagan Greeks had several God’s as well, they included:

 

Apollo

Ares

Hebe

Zeus

 

 

The Romans had several God’s as well which included:

 

Flora

Hora

Cupid

Juno

 

So each pagan religion has a whole set of different gods, and each god has a specific role. Now when one looks at Christianity one will find the identical belief, which is that of the Trinity, where you have 3 gods:

 

The Father

The Son Jesus

The Holy Spirit

 

Notice the similarity with this and the other pagan religions which I was just quoting? Now of course Trinitarians will deny the Trinity it is three God’s, but everyone knows trinity is in fact the worship of three gods no matter how you try to look at it, in fact several Christians even refuse the trinity and they themselves admit trinity is the worship of three gods! So you even have Christians who say the trinity is 3 gods!

 

And let us easily prove the trinity is three gods, the Father is God, Jesus is God, the Holy Spirit is also God, each of these deities is different than the other, the Father is not Jesus, and Jesus is not the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is neither the Father and Jesus, and each one of these deities is God hence you have three gods! Easy!

 

Now it doesn’t matter if Trinitarians view trinity as monotheism and not polytheism, we must look at trinity in a proper context, and when we do we see that it is 100% similar to the pagan religions of the past. Pagan religions had several gods and each god had a different specific role, the trinity has three persons, and each is divine, and each has a specific role, notice the similarity? So simply based on these very identical similarities one can easily say the concept of the trinity was borrowed and derived from the older and present pagan religions in the time of Paul and his followers.

 

I mean the fact that millions of Christians don’t believe in the trinity and believe its polytheistic is the best testimony we could have to prove our information is correct!

 

Now another thing that is prevalent in pagan religions is that many of their gods were in fact human beings, basically the idea of a man-god. Many of the pagan beliefs also believed that certain of these humans who also happened to be god came down from the heavens. Examples include:

 

Krishna

Pharos of Egypt (mentioned in the Quran and the Old Testament)

Julius Caesar

Dido

 

 

We find this exact thing in Christianity with Jesus! The man-God, God coming in the form of a man, in the flesh, all of this is identical to pagan beliefs which came before Christianity!

 

So again we can confidently state that the Christian concept of Jesus being God in the flesh is a borrowed form of paganism.

 

There is more connections between the Christian beliefs and paganism, but that I shall keep for another article. So to summarize what we have:

 

1-Pagans believed in several gods each having different functions

 

2-Christians believe in 3 deities who each perform different function, and each deity is god leaving us with three Gods

 

3-Even millions of Christians reject the trinity and affirm it is paganism and polytheism

 

4-Several pagan gods were in fact humans, who were elevated to the status of divine

 

5-Christians believe in a human god as well

 

A lot of coincidences? You decide but I think you know the truth.

Muhammad in the Bible !!

“And if you (Muhammad) are in doubt concerning that which We have revealed unto you, then ask those who read the Scripture (that was) before you. Verily the Truth has come unto you from your Lord, so do not be among those who waver.” (The noble Qur’an 10:94)

In the Bible we can find the following passages where Jesus (peace be upon him) predicts a great event:


John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you ANOTHER Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”


John 16:7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; BUT if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.”
 
 
 

This prophecy clearly lays down that:

-The Comforter will come after the departure of Jesus.

-When the Comforter comes, he will reprove the world of sin, truth and justice.

-He will guide the world into all truth.

-he will not speak of himself.

-He will foretell things to come.

– That he will stay with you forever.

-He will glorify Jesus and clear him of all charges.

 

Now when we take this prophecy point by point, it is unmistakably proven that it applies to none else but the Prophet Muhammad. Let us see:

-Muhammed came after the departure of Jesus.

– Muhammed did guide us into the truth; to worship God Alone and submit yourself to the will of God, Muhammed DID change the people from paganism to monotheism !!

Allah Almighty says : “O mankind! The messenger (Muhammad) hath come unto you with the truth from your Lord. Therefore believe; (it is) better for you” (The noble Qur’an, 4:120)

-He didn’t speak of himself, the Quran is nothing but the word of God from beginning to end, not a single word even of the Prophet is to be found in it.

Nor does he (Muhammad) speak of his own desire. It is but an Inspiration that is inspired [unto him]” (The noble Qur’an, 53:3-4)
 

-That he may abide with you forever.

“Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allah and the SEAL of the Prophets; and Allah is Aware of all things.” (The noble Qur’an, 33:40)

And “This day have I (God) perfected your religion for you (mankind) and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion Islam(the submission).” (The noble Qur’an 5:3)

So the religion of Islam is the last message to mankind and it, as well as the Qur’an, will abide with us FOREVER.

The verse “that he may abide with you for ever”, it doesn’t mean that the comforter will live with us forever and he  won’t die, because this is impossible, but Muhammad (peace be upon him) will abide and live with us through his teachings, and his quotations that recorded from him during his lifetime in a broad range of topics.

 To this day, whenever a Muslims wishes to perform any action no matter how trivial, he does not advance a single step before first consulting Allah (in the Qur’an), and then prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) (in the Hadith).

It also means that he will stay with us forever that no one will come after him saying “I’m a prophet sent from God, so believe in me” because the message of the comforter will be the last message, that why Jesus said “he may abide with you FOR EVER

 

-He will show you things to come.

Here is some of Muhammad’s prophecies:

1\Disappearance of trustworthiness, so much so that one would only be able to say: “I know a trustworthy person in such-and-such town.”

2\ The increase in killing, so that the one who kills does not know why he killed, and the one killed does not know why he was killed.

3\ The increase of the use of usury/interest so that no one will able to escape being tainted by it. This clearly the state of the world economy today.

5\The decrease of religious knowledge due to the disappearance of scholars.

6\The increase of sexual promiscuity, and new diseases that people had not heard of before spreading amongst them as a consequence of that. This is clear, with the arrival of AIDS, and other previously unheard of viruses.

7\Nakedness of women while still being dressed and people copulating like donkeys in public.

8\The drinking of wine becoming common.

9\ The worst and most ignorant will become leaders and they will be oppressors.

10\ A man will obey his wife and disobey his mother, and treat his friends kindly and shun his father.

 

-Muhammed did glorify Jesus .

-“Behold! the angels said “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ (Maseeh) Jesus the son of Mary held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah.( Qur’an 3:45-51)

 

Conclusion:

 Muhammad (peace be upon him), as seen, did indeed fulfill this prophesy.

 

Some people will argue back by saying that the Spirit of truth is not Muhammed but it is  the Holy Spirit?!  Is that true?! well, let us look at it :

 

The comforter/the spirit of truth  cannot be the Holy spirit because:


 First: the Holy spirit (according to the Bible) was “with” them already (and even quite active) long before the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him) himself and then throughout his ministry. Read for example:
 
“Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?” (Isaiah 63:11)
 

Did they or did they not already receive the Holy spirit?!

Was Jesus (peace be upon him) not still with them when they received the Holy spirit ?!

Was the Holy spirit not with Simeon, Mary, Elisabeth and Zacharias before the birth of Jesus (peace be upon him)?!

Was the Holy spirit not with Moses (peace be upon him) when he parted the seas?!

 

Second, Does the Holy Spirit “speak” ?! of course not, but the verse says that the comforter must hear then speak …

”he shall hear, [that] shall he speak” .. so this is obviously not the holy spirit .

There is a distinct difference between someone “inspiring” something and him “speaking” something.

 

Third, Jesus said ”another comforter” .. The word “another” is significant. if we assumed that the comforter is the holy spirit ?! why did Jesus say ANOTHER ?! how many Holy spirits are there?

 

Fourth, Jesus peace be upon will never refer to the holy spirit by using the pronoun “He”, but he will say “it”.

 

 

I bear witness that there’s no deity worthy to be worshipped but Allah, and Muhammed is his last messenger.

 

 

And Allah knows best …
