I had a series of comments with Waalid that should you wish can be read HERE. I closed the comment on the post as I felt they were getting nowhere. Waalid decided to respond through another (non-Islamic related) post HERE. I thought he might respond. He hasn’t, and so I’ve no way of knowing if he read them. In response to his determination to reply I decided to turn them into a blog post. See below with my reply. BTW I am assuming English is not his first language. Please also note in the first set of comments his name is Walid and in the ones below it’s Waalid. I’ve no explanation for this.
After I showed you interisting point about trinity, I was surprise that you Disabled The COMMENTS”, on your post BBC ‘Life of Mohammed’ Observations Part 2
Dont be Afread of the TRUTH, just open your brain, We dont follow relegion because our fathers did but because our heart open for it.
In your last post before you disbled the comment you said:
“The doctrine of the Trinity is not illogical as you suggest”
I didnt comment that it was illogical but I commented about you sayin trinity is difficult to understand – incomprehensible even.
As god will be not fair If he asks people to beleive in a difficult principle, especially if you know that the first followers of prophets are not the elite but the poor and farmers that never gone to schools because they dont have an ego to stop them from following the truth.
I Travel in Africa and saw how much money the church is taking from poor people in the name of Jesus, give 10% of it to some hungry people and for the rest, go visit the castles in Vatican and you will understand that it turned in to a corporation.
I dont Accept anyone between me and My Lord, either he want to be in the middle because he wants to make money or good intention.
And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.
My Reply to Waalid
Sadly Christians can do bad things. Do Muslims do bad things? BTW it was Part 1 I disabled not Part 2.
I disabled comments because it seemed that particular discussion was going nowhere because you will not accept that what the Koran says about the Trinity is incorrect – that’s my point. And since you raise it I could charge you with the same – you should not be afraid of the Truth. Would you be afraid to leave Islam and become a Christian? If you are not saying it was illogical why use the logic of 3 = 1. I’ll ask you again have you read the Athanasian Creed – I doubt it. In fact I doubt you read anything other than your own religious writing & perhaps ‘Christian’ heresies that I would happily condemn with you. I’d like you to prove me wrong. I’m not a Catholic so I agree with you on that one. That is not what we are talking about. I’ll refer you to my two options again:
There are only two options. Option 1, either Islam or Christianity is true, there can only be one. Or, option 2, neither of them is true. If it is option 2, we should all find something better to do with our lives. But if it’s option 1; we need to think about which one is true. That’s not being Islamophobic that’s being a seeker after Truth.
The Truth is only found in Jesus Christ, the only Saviour for sinners. I know that Jesus loves me and has paid the price for my sins (that doesn’t make me perfect) on the Cross and has in fact done everything necessary for my Salvation and will take me home to be with Him in Heaven. Why on earth would I want to become a Muslim with Jesus as my Saviour. Can Mohammed save anyone – no he can’t. Did Mohammed die for the sins of anyone – no he didn’t. You can’t even be sure your own (fictional) God will save you so why would any thinking person using their brain (unless deceived) even give Islam a second thought.
Jesus told the Truth when He said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) If only you were to turn to The Lord Jesus Christ for Salvation – you would then find Him (Jesus) to be your all in all. You would know the immense blessing, and relief, of not having to work your way to heaven and you would be joining many ex Muslims that have found The TRUTH to be found Only in Jesus Christ. Will you not consider Christ? Will you not turn to Him? I pray that you will.
Do you believe the words of Jesus? if you do – turn to Him and put your faith in Him alone.
My Final Reply to Waalid
Hi again Waalid,
I just realised what an interesting post this was to leave a comment on.
Did you know that one of Augustine’s major pieces of writing was On The Trinity (De Trinitate). Augustine (354-430). You will notice this was many years before Mohammed (570-632) came on the scene!
Here is a link to Augustine The Trinity: a Summary: http://www.piney.com/Trinity.Augustine.html
and here’s another (Readable summary) link: http://thriceholy.net/Texts/augustinef.html
