Islam is the only religion which teaches the existence of a PERFECT
God.  A
perfect God means that there is no sharer in His Nature and His
Attributes:

"Say:  He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He
begetteth
not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him."  (Holy
Qur'an,
 112:1-4)

There has appeared a man in Benoni.  He is not qualified in theology,
but is
fondly cherishing the self-delusion that he is an apostle of Christ,
appointed by God to convert Muslims to Christianity.  Because he is a
lawyer
by profession, he is adept at juggling with words and quoting the Holy
Qur'an
totally out of context without knowing a word of Arabic.  He wants
Muslims to
believe that Jesus was also a God, a belief that is abhorrent to us,
because
it is an antithesis of the Absolute perfection of Allah Subhaanahoo Wa
Ta
'Aala!

Thus intent upon reversing the process of Truth, which is: "And say:
The
Truth has come and falsehood vanished.  Surely falsehood is ever bound
to
vanish." (Qur'an, 17:81).  In this he will never succeed because the
process
of Truth is irreversible.

TWO REASONS

He has given two reasons to prove that Jesus is God, viz: (i) "When we
say
Jesus is deity (or even God for that matter), we do not make him the
Father!
 He is one with the Father and therefore HE SHARES HIS NATURE", and
(ii) "HE
IS IN EVERY WAY LIKE THE FATHER but he is not the Father".

In short, according to him, Jesus is God because He SHARES THE NATURE
OF GOD,
and HE IS IN EVERY WAY LIKE GOD.  These two reasons given by him to
prove the
divinity of Jesus are so puerile that they speak volumes of his legal
training.

Numerous quotations from the Bible are given below to prove that Jesus
neither SHARED THE NATURE OF GOD, nor is he IN EVERY WAY LIKE GOD.  He
can,
therefore, NEVER be GOD.  We have given the quotations from the Bible
without
comment, because the Bible speaks for itself! TO SAY THAT JESUS IS GOD
OR SON
OF GOD IS NOT ONLY A MOCKERY OF GODHOOD, BUT BLASPHEMY OF THE LOWEST
ORDER
AND AND INSULT TO THE INTELLIGENCE OF MEN!  (Note:  Unless otherwise
stated,
all quotations from the Bible are given from the Authorized Version.
In our
headings and subheadings we have referred to Jesus as "God" in
inverted
commas in order to show the ABSURDITY of the claim of this man that
Jesus is
God!)


THE BIRTH OF "GOD"

"God" was created from the seed of David:  "Concerning his Son Jesus
Christ
our Lord, which was made of the SEED of David according to the flesh."
 (Romans, 1:3)

"God" was the fruit of the loins of David:  "Therefore being a
prophet, and
knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of
his
loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his
throne."  (Acts,  2:30)

The Ancestors of "God":  "The generations of Jesus Christ, the son of
David,
the son of Abraham."  (Matthew, 1:1)

The Sex of "God":  "And when eight days were accomplished for the
circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus."  (Luke, 2:21)

How Mary Conceived and Delivered "God".  Mary conceived Jesus like any
other
woman:  "The days were accomplished that she should be
delivered," (Luke,
2:6) which means that she went through all the normal stages of
pregnancy.
 Nor was her delivery any different from other expectant mothers:
"And she
being with child cried, travelling in birth, and pained to be
delivered."
(Revelation, 12:2)

"God" Sucked The Paps of a Woman:  "And it came to pass, as he spake
these
things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said
unto
him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast
sucked." (Luke, 11:27)

The Country of Origin of "God":  "Jesus was born in Bethlehem of
Judaea in
the days of Herod the king.  (Matthew, 2:1)

The Occupation of  "God":  "Jesus was a carpenter by trade." (Mark,
6:3),
"and the son of a carpenter." (Matthew,  13:55)

The Transport of "God":  "Behold, thy king cometh unto thee, meek, and
sitting upon an ass."  (Matthew, 21:5)  "And Jesus, when he had found
a young
ass, sat thereon."  (John, 12:14)

The Wining and Dining of "God":  "The Son of man came eating and
drinking,
and they say, behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of
publicans and sinners."  (Matthew, 11:9;  Luke, 7:34)

The Poverty of "God":  "And Jesus saith unto him, the foxes have
holes, and
the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to
lay his
head."  (Matthew,  8:20)

The Meagre Possessions of "God":  "Shoes of Jesus" (Luke, 3:16),
"Garments
and coat of Jesus" (John, 19:23)

"God" Was a Devout Jew:  "And in the morning, rising up a great while
before
day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there
prayed."
 (Mark, 1:35)

"God" Was a Loyal Subject:  Jesus was a good citizen, he was loyal to
Caesar.
 He said:  "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are
Caesar's; and
unto God the things that are God's."  (Matthew, 22:21)  He paid his
tax
regularly.  (Matthew, 17:24-27)

THE FAMILY OF "GOD"

"God" Was the Son of Joseph:  "Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith
unto him,
we have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did
write,
Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph"  (John, 1:45)

Brothers and Brothers-in-law of "God":  "And when he was come into his
own
country, he taught them in their
synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, whence hath
this man
this wisdom, and these mighty works?  Is not this the carpenter's
son?  Is
not his mother called Mary?  and his brethren, James, and Joses, and
Simon, and Judas?  And his sisters, are they not all with us?  Whence
hath
this man all these things?  (Matthew, 13:54-56)



THE DEVELOPMENT OF "GOD"

Spiritual Development of "God":  "And the child grew, and waxed strong
in
spirit, filled with wisdom."  (Luke, 2:40)

Mental, Physical and Moral Development of "God":  "And Jesus increased
in
wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."  (Luke, 2:52)

"God" Was 12 Years Old When His Parents Took Him to Jerusalem:  "Now
his
parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
And when
he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of
the
feast."  (Luke,  2:41-42)

The Powerless "God" (Jesus) said:  "I can of mine own self do
nothing."
(John, 5:30)

"God" Was Ignorant of the Time.  Jesus said:  "But of that day and
that hour
knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the
Son, but
the Father."  (Mark, 13:32)

"God" Was Ignorant of the Season:  "And on the morrow, when they were
come
from Bethany, he (Jesus) was hungry:  and seeing a fig tree afar off
having
leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when
he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was
not
yet."  (Mark, 11:12-13)

"God" Was Unlettered: "Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up
into
the temple, and taught.  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth
this man
letters, having never learned?"  (John, 7:14-15)

"God" Learnt Through Experience:  "Learned he obedience by the things
which
he sufered."  (Hebrews, 5:8)


THE TEMPTING OF "GOD"

The Devil Tempted "God" For 40 Days:  "And immediately the spirit
driveth him
into the wilderness.  And he was there in the wilderness forty days,
tempted
of Satan."  (Mark,  1:12-13)

The Devil Tempted "God" Continuously:  "And when the devil had ended
all the
temptation, he departed from him for a season."  (Luke,  4:13)

Like the Sinners, "God" Was Tempted In All Things:  "But (he) was in
all
points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."  (Hebrews,  4:15)

True God Cannot be Tempted With Evil:  "God cannot be tempted with
evil,
neither tempteth he any man." (James,
1:13)

Only The Ungodly Are Tempted With Evil:  "But every man is tempted,
when he
is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed."  (James,  1:14)


THE MISSION OF "GOD"

The Confession and Repentance of "God":  before the beginning of his
public
ministry:  "Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist" (Matthew,  3:13),
"which
signified the confession of sins" (Matthew, 3:6), "and repentance from
sins
(Matthew, 3:11).

"God" Did Not Come to Save the Sinners:  "And when he was alone, they
that
were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.  And he said
unto
them, unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God:
but
unto them that without, all these things are done in  parables:  That
seeing
they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not
understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins
should
be forgiven them."  (Mark,  4:10-12)


THE RACIAL "GOD"

"God" Was a Tribal Jew:  "The lion of the tribe of
Juda."  (Revelation, 5:5)

"God" Came For The Jews Only:  "But he answered and said, I am not
sent but
unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel."  (Matthew, 15:24)

Racial Discrimination of "God":  "These twelve Jesus sent forth, and
commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into
any
city of the Samaritans enter ye not:  But go rather to the lost sheep
of the
house of Israel."  (Matthew, 10:5-6)

According to "God", The Gentiles Are Dogs:  "It is not meet to take
the
children's bread, and to cast it to dogs."  (matthew, 15:26)

The Kingdom of "God":  And he (Jesus) shall reign over THE HOUSE OF
JACOB for
ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end."  (Luke, 1:33)

The Titles of "God":  "The king of the Jews"  (Matthew, 2:2),  "The
king of
Israel" (John, 1:49; 12:13)


A "GOD" UNLIKE THE GOD

A Hungry "God":  "And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights,
he was
afterward an hungered."  (Matthew 4:2),  "Now in the morning as he
returned
into the city, he hungered."  (Matthew, 21:18), "and on the

thus on
the well."  (John,  4:6)

grave."
(John, 11:38)

A Weeping "God":  "Jesus wept."  (John, 11:35)

A Sorrowing "God":  "And (he) began to be sorrowful and very
heavy." (Matthew
26:37).  "Then saith he unto them, my soul is exceeding sorrowful,
even unto
death."  (Matthew, 26:38)

A Hysterical "God":  "And (he) began to be soreamazed and to be very
heavy."
 (Mark, 14:33)

A Weak "God":  "And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven,
strengthening him."  (Luke, 22:43)


THE WARRING "GOD"

The Strong-Arm Method of "God":  "And he went into the temple, and
began to
cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought." (Luke,
19:45).  "And
the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and
found in
the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers
of
money sitting: and when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove
them
all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the
changers' money, and overthrew the tables."  (John, 2:13-15)

The "God" of War:  Jesus said:  "Think not that I am come to send
peace on
earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."  (Matthew, 10:34)

The Sabre-Rattling "God": Jesus said:  "And he that hath no sword, let
him
sell his garment, and buy one."  (Luke, 22:36)


The "GOD" ON THE RUN

"God" Was Panic-Stricken:  "After these things Jesus walked in
Galilee: for
he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill
him." (John, 7:1)

"God" Walked in Fear of the Jews:  "Then from that day forth they took
counsel together for to put him to death.  Jesus therefore walked no
more
openly among the Jews."  (John,  11:53-54)

"God" Has Shown a Clean Pair of Heels:  "Therefore they sought again
to take
him: but he escaped out of their hand."  (John, 10:39)

"God" Fled in Disguise:  "Then took they up stones to cast at him: but
Jesus
hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of
them, and
so passed by."  (John,  8:59)


THE CAPTURE OF "GOD"

A Friend Betrayed the Secret Hiding Place of "God":  "And Judas also,
which
betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus off-times resorted thither
with his
disciples.  Judas then, having received a band of man and officers
from the
chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches
and
weapons."  (John, 18:2-3)

"God" Was Arrested, Bound and Led Away:  "Then the band and the
captain and
officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, and led him
away." (John,
18:12-13)

"God" Was Humiliated:  "And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and
smote
him.  And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the
face."
(Luke, 22:63-64).  "Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him;
and
others smote him with the palms of their hands."  (Matthew, 26:67)

"God" Was Defenseless:  "One of the officers which stood by struck
Jesus with
the palm of his hand", he said: "Why smitest thou me?" (John,
18:22-23)

"God" Was Condemned to Death:  "And they all condemned him to be
guilty of
death."  (Mark, 14:64).  "They answered and said, he is guilty of
death."
(Matthew, 26:66)

The Dumb and Docile "God":  "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
and like
a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth."  (Acts,
8:32)


THE SUPPOSED END OF "GOD"

The Dying "God":  "And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the
ghost."
 (Mark, 15:37)

The "God" That Was Supposed Dead and Defunct:  "Christ
died."  (Romans, 5:6).
 "He was dead". (John, 19:33)

The Supposed Corpse of "God":  "he (Joseph of Arimathaea) went to
Pilate, and
begged the body of Jesus.  Then Pilate commanded the body to be
delivered."
 (Matthew, 27:58)

The Shroud of "God":  "And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped
it in a
clean linen cloth."  (Matthew,  27:59)

The Orbituary of The Late And Lamented "God":  "Now when the centurion
saw
what was done, he glorified God, saying, certainly this was a
righteous man."
 (Luke, 23:47)


EPILOGUE

According to this self-appointed apostle of Christ, Jesus is God
because: (i)
"HE SHARED THE NATURE OF GOD", and (ii) because "IN EVERY WAY HE IS
LIKE
GOD".  But according to the quotations of the Bible given above, we
find that
Jesus did neither SHARE THE NATURE OF GOD nor is he IN EVERY WAY LIKE
GOD.
 He is, therefore, definitely NOT God!  The onus to prove that Jesus
is God
now rests with this Christian.  Either he must prove that Jesus is
God, or he
must admit that he is a polytheist, i.e., a believer in more than one
God.
 WITH ALL THE TRICKS AND VERBAL LEGERDEMAIN OF HIS PROFESSION, HE WILL
NEVER
BE ABLE TO PROVE THAT JESUS IS GOD!!

He and his fellow-preachers in Christ, will never succeed in
convincing the
Muslims that Jesus was anything other than a natural man and a prophet
of
God, sent unto the house of Israel to bear the good news of the coming
of the
KINGDOM OF GOD, which prophecy was fulfilled with the advent of the
Holy
Prophet Muhammed (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wa Sallam)!
