Do Chris­tians make Jesus idolatrous ?

Abdur Rafay Ahmad & Mohd Elfie Nieshaem Juferi 

Before pro­ceed­ing, please let us inform you clear­ly that Mus­lims love Prophet Jesus(P) and have noth­ing against him. Accord­ing to the Holy Qur’?n, one must believe in every prophet includ­ing Jesus(P) to become a Mus­lim. And accord­ing to the Qur’?n, if a Mus­lims say some­thing against the Prophet Jesus(P), he is des­tined for Hell !

This paper has been writ­ten to dis­prove the doc­trine of Trin­i­ty through the analy­sis of sev­er­al vers­es in the Old and the New Tes­ta­ment. For the sake of the argu­ment, we shall assume what the Chris­tians assume about Jesus(P) in this dis­course, name­ly that he(P) is God in human form.

Con­tra­dict­ing Vers­es and Views

In one place, the New Tes­ta­ment con­firms that peo­ple will go to Heav­en by their deeds, and in anoth­er place, it says that Jesus, peace be upon him is (alleged­ly!) the way to Heav­en. There are a lot of con­tra­dict­ing vers­es like these. Chris­tians nowa­days believe that if one believes in Jesus, he’ll go to Heav­en in all ways even if he is a sin­ner. So Chris­tians are hav­ing a new spir­i­tu­al expe­ri­ence, which was not taught by the Law giv­en to Moses(P).

Abro­gat­ing the Whole Law of Moses

The New Tes­ta­ment tells us that Jesus(P) con­firms the Law of Moses(P):

Do not think that I have come to abol­ish the law or the prophets ; I have come not to abol­ish but to ful­fill. For tru­ly I tell you, until heav­en and earth pass away, not one let­ter, not one stroke of a let­ter, will pass from the law until all is accom­plished. There­fore, who­ev­er breaks one of the least of these com­mand­ments, and teach­es oth­ers to do the same, will be called least in the king­dom of heav­en ; but who­ev­er does them and teach­es them will be called great in the king­dom of heav­en. For I tell you, unless your right­eous­ness exceeds that of the scribes and Phar­isees, you will nev­er enter the king­dom of heav­en.Matthew 5 : 17 – 20

From the above vers­es, we can infer that Jesus(P) con­firms the She­ma of the Jews, as he him­self had said :

Hear, O Israel : The LORD our God, is one LORD.“Mark 12:29 – 32, c.f. Deuteron­o­my 6:4

But sud­den­ly, we read in anoth­er pas­sage that, accord­ing to Chris­t­ian inter­pre­tion, Jesus(P) is say­ing that he is (alleged­ly) a part of God :

When he had gone out, Jesus said, Now the Son of Man has been glo­ri­fied, and God has been glo­ri­fied in him. If God has been glo­ri­fied in him God will also glo­ri­fy him in him­self and will glo­ri­fy him at once’.“John 13 : 31 – 32

So there are a lot of con­tra­dict­ing vers­es, abro­gat­ing the law, con­firm­ing the law and there­fore caus­ing confusion.

Chris­tians today are claim­ing that Jesus is a part of God, and that if one believes in Jesus(P), then he or she will go to Heav­en in all cas­es even if they are sin­ners, and this is con­tra­dic­to­ry to the Law of Moses(P) . So, in a way, Chris­tians are the ser­vants of Jesus (because they claim that Jesus is God), or in oth­er words, they serve Jesus(P) , and not God.

So What Do We Do With Such Cas­es Accord­ing to The Law ?

Accord­ing to the Law of Moses(P), such a Prophet (that is, the Jesus of the New Tes­ta­ment) should be killed or cru­ci­fied. This proves the dis­tor­tion of the New Tes­ta­ment and the fal­la­cy of the Jesus of the New Tes­ta­ment. The real Jesus(P) was a great Mes­sen­ger of God and would nev­er pro­claim a Mes­sage con­trary to the teach­ings of God Almighty !

We read that :

If prophets or those who divine by dreams appear among you and promise you omens or por­tents, and the omens or the por­tents declared by them take place, and they say, Let us fol­low oth­er gods” (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,” you must not heed the words of those prophets or those who divine by dreams ; for the LORD your God is test­ing you, to know whether you indeed love the LORD your God with all your heart and soul. The LORD your God you shall fol­low, him alone you shall fear, his com­mand­ments you shall keep, his voice you shall obey, him you shall serve, and to him you shall hold fast. But those prophets or those who divine by dreams shall be put to death for hav­ing spo­ken trea­son against the LORD your God – who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slav­ery – to turn you from the way in which the LORD your God com­mand­ed you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.“Deuteron­o­my 13 : 1 – 5

This verse clear­ly states that no Prophet is divine, and any Prophet who claims to be divine is a false one and should be put to death. This is not the case with the true pic­ture of Jesus(P), the truth about Jesus(P) is total­ly dif­fer­ent as he was a great and true Mes­sen­ger of All?h.


The con­cept of Islam­ic monothe­ism (i.e. tawheed) is superb and so unique that it can nev­er be dis­proved to be an eise­ge­sis of the Qur’?n. On the oth­er hand, we can­not find the doc­trine of Trin­i­ty being sup­port­ed by the exe­ge­sis of the Bible and we are forced to con­clude that the con­cept of Trin­i­ty is man-made and not sup­port­ed accord­ing to the present day man­u­scripts of the Law of Moses(P) and the Noble Qur’?n.

And cer­tain­ly, only God knows best !Endmark
