Crybaby Muhammad


Here's my latest cartoon of Muhammad. I've gotten a few comments and a few emails that basically boil down to what the crybaby is saying, "Whaa! You hurt my willte feelings."

What can I say? I'll quote Dennis Leary, "Life is tough. Get a helmet."

Thanks for the great cartoon. One thing that may help unravel Islam’s cesspool of hate is criticism. Theo Van Gogh died for it. Criticism forces Muslims to think. Few free-thinking people would ever freely choose Islam. If criticism makes them think. Criticize Islam as much as possible.

top man.lol credit for daring, just dont let them know where you live or you could end up with a fatwa on your head like salman rushdie did. these muslims are not known for their tolerance.

but u gotta admit, it is so close to the truth, even if u read the quran you should be able to work that out. cept for the pakistan flag bit.

You forgot the "shut up or i will set god on you" as was the threat he used to jews who laughed at his rip-off of the bible. hence all the hate today by muslims towards jews.

but you try telling a muslim that!

Islam is a religion of Peace and Muhammad was the most just and peaceful prophet ever to walk this earth, if you find pleasure in making fun of such a great person then shame on you and all this prooves to the prophecies by the great prophet himself. instead of criticising and making fun of this great person, learn more about him and appreciate the person he was, he brought humanity and justice to the corrupt people of this world and still is an inspiration no matter what the ignorant say. if muslims were fools to follow islam then why is it that islam is the fastest growing religion in the world with a population of over 1.4 billion practising muslims. you can]t deny that islam is a power to reckon with, learn how to live with it and be inspired by the teachings and wisdom of the most beloved prophet of is Muhammad. ALLAH IS GREAT.

I have been hearing a lot of drivel about Islam being the "Religion of Peace" and so and so forth for a rather long time now, and to put it frankly it all leaves me S.I.C.K - and that's putting it mildly. I am no fan of the Danish cartoons- which I think were rather poor in quality, except the one about Mohammed telling homicide bombers( I think the word "suicide" should be reserved for people who choose to end their lives with dignity and not to murdering fanatics), but the fact that it struck a raw never and bruised a lot of hyper-inflated egos goes a long way to prove that it had some redeeming quality to it, surely the message in the cartoons were crushing, to say the least.

To those adhrents to Islam who tirelessly dish out the now cliched
words about "Islam being a religion of Peace" and all that, I say, why don't you prove it in your actions rather than come out and dish out the same stuff time and again when some of your co-religionists have indulged in acts of savage violence each act trying to outdo it's predecessors in sheer savagery. Try and give us a practical example of how Islam can be peaceful in action rather than in rhetoric, actions speak louder than words, don't they?

Much has been touted by a blogger before me who wanted to know why Islam was the fastest growing religion,if it weren't acceptable to people. I think the answer lies in his own post but the order has been reversed by him, so exercising my Freedom of Speech I shall now try and put his own words in their correct order without adding anything on my own.

"muslims were fools to follow islam" * "islam is the fastest growing religion in the world with a population of over 1.4 billion practising muslims" * "corrupt(ing) people of this world"*


*-Editor's Freedom of Speech have been exercised here. NO words have been added by the Editor, but words have been removed for the sake of clarity and brevity.

And finally to those of you who find this nothing more than a chance to lampoon people on the basis of their religion and nothing else, I say, get a life. There is more to this debate than taking potshots

Islam is not a religion, to the contrary Islam is a violent death cult. All one has to do to know this is true is watch the world news, any channel will do.
Action speaks louder than words and here is one common sense example: The muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace, yet all they do is kill, kill and kill again. With a religion of peace like that...who needs peace?

Finally, Christians are seeing what Hindus and Jews have known for years, the radical, insidious and frightening face of Islam. Yet the media remains out of touch with the views of people in western countries. Most terrorists are Moslems, yet British and American filmmakers will not show Islamic villains. Tony Blair invites Imams to tea at 10 Downing Street. Bush plays the mediator in the Cartoon row. Even European leaders whinge to Arab ambassadors and foreign ministers. The Sunday Telegraph on 12 February has published the results of a poll in England showing widespread anger at the way hardline Moslems have been allowed to peddle their poison for years. As a Hindu, I am not surprised. As an Englishman, I am ashamed. As a human being I am angry and scared of the future.

The issue is not that we Muslims are cry babies or we are unreasonable. The issue is that we are trying to tell the West that this thing is considered extremely shocking in our society.

I agree there are more shocking things that we are not shocked at. But, we live in a world with different kinds of people. There is a point when you cross into the global arena, at that point you should learn to respect others.

There are many extremists in Islamic countries. And I condemn them, but by this activity of deliberately trying to insult and hurt muslims you are stooping to the level of the extremists.

I am impressed by many of the comments I have read here. In my mind- if Muslims do not like the way they are percieved then DO something about it. If I were Muslim- I would go WAY out of my way to let people know that I (and my fellow Muslims) completely detest what our brothers are doing in the name of our god. I hear NOTHING of the sort- does anyone else? If Muslims are critisized and looked down upon because of what a small but vocal minority are doing IN THE NAME OF ISLAM- stop them from defacing your prescious religion. If you do not stop it- I do not feel sorry for you or the way your religion is treated. That's my opinion.

As for the rediculous worldwide reactions to the *stupid* cartoons-look at yourselves, Muslims! Watch the news and look how you are reacting to a stupid drawing! People will say anything that they want- many times those comments are uninformed, racist, or ignorant. You can't stop people from saying what they want to say in other parts of the world. Not everyone has to adhere to YOUR rules. People can say anything that they want to about me, my religion, my family, my beliefs. BFD. Say what you want. It won't change the way I live, worship, love or work. And to think- so many people died over some persons stupid cartoons. To me- it is absolutely amazing. Muhammad must be a really great god if that's the way he'd want it.

Did the last blogger just equate drawing cartoons to beheading innocent civilians? WOW.

Mocking Islam is the best thing we can do short of taking more aggressive measures. But the good that is done is not born from the satire, but from seeing the violent reaction to the satire. It is in this violent outburst that Islam is seen again as the violent, non-tolerant cult that it is. The cartoon violence has done more to expose Islam than anything. Even more than 9/11 because this violence is the product of an entire people, not 19 screwball terrorists. When an entire people behave in this way, it makes the world take notice of what is to come. Nothing is better for the defence against Islam than the violent actions and militant words of the Islamic people. Many people who had no opinion on Islam previously, have an opinion now. That is good. What we need is more of this. Much more.

Micheal H. Hart wrote a book The 100 : A ranking of the most influential persons in history. He ranked Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) number 1. He was a christian but under the criteria Muhammad was ranked 1st. my message goes out to all people "ignorance is bliss". Please dont put your 2 cents worth in if you dont know whats going on. You cant just watch TV and analyse the muslims. You owe it to your self and read the life of the prophet(PBUH) and islam.

You muslims can show video of people getting their heads cut off and we can't draw a picture of your prophet that is B.S. You can make fun of my religion I don't care at all. In fact isn't it a muslim tradition to mock christ by putting a man facing backward on a mule? You don't see us freaking out.
The Quran says "you must convert the infidels or kill them" or "if your wife doesn't listen to you, you should beat her" It also tells you "you should kill and die for allah" Not once is god refered to as a father, or someone who loves unconditionally. He only loves you and rewards you if you kill and die for him .... Wonderful God to believe in. "Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion" Stop trying to convert everyone then, I'm not interested my god loves me without killing anyone.

The reason Islam is the fastest growing religion is people have been duped .. they believe the quran has never been translated and the messages are exactly as god spoke them. What these converts fail to realize is the Muslim god is not the same god as the Christians or Jews. Muslims use the same prophets to fool people to believe they are talking about the same god but Evil can quote scripture too.(ie:RC church) They couldn't disprove the Jewish prophets so they incorparated them. AND since approx. 97% of muslims can't even read their own sacred texts they believe what the imam's tell them is in the quran. And if your reading a translated version well your going to hell anyway. Sorry:)
If Islam is the true religion then why is that all the islamic countries look like godforsaken wastelands, Where is your god and why wouldn't he step up to help your countries himself. Considering that you are all so devout and god fearing .. lol

I think the sun has baked your brains!! .

Hi Jalal.

Did you write, "Jalal said... The issue is not that we Muslims are cry babies or we are unreasonable. The issue is that we are trying to tell the West that this thing is considered extremely shocking in our society.

I agree there are more shocking things that we are not shocked at. But, we live in a world with different kinds of people. There is a point when you cross into the global arena, at that point you should learn to respect others.

You are a a pretty simple-minded society to be shocked by a little HONEST criticism. You ARE a society of little cry-babies! And your paper-thin egos are huge! Don't be so proud, and don't take everything personally. No one even knows you, personally. You personally are not being attacked or criticised. Pride goes before a fall. Pride causes people to do stupid things. In other words, what you are really shocked at, is being told the TRUTH about yourselves and you, boo-hoo, don't like it. Well, you shouldn't like it. That painful, hurt feeling that you feel, is the Holy Spirit of God, not your idol Alah, telling you that you are doing something wrong. So if the shoe fits, then to be honest, you must wear it. In other words, you must some day learn to be HONEST and admit the truth. Stop lying to yourselves and start being honest. No liar will go to heaven.

To show how twisted is Muslim thinking, you are shocked at a little cartoon sitting peacefully on a peace of paper, but you are NOT shocked at all of the suicidal killings of people! That is SICK and evil! Yes. Feel that pricking of your conscience? That is the real God of this whole universe telling you that I have just told you the truth.

You wrote, "There is a point when you cross into the global arena, at that point you should learn to respect others." Are you talking personally? Are you saying that you personally should learn or have you already learned to respect others, or are you saying that collectively the Muslims should learn to respect others? Either way, yes. You ALL should do just that, respect others, respect life. God came not to destroy but to save people. God is Love. Love cannot kill another. Satan is hate and is only interested in killing and killing and killing. Satan is the father of all killers. And all killers will, in the end, end up being burned up in the great lake of fire with satan and all of the evil angels that followed him. They used to be good angels. But when they refused to come back to God, then they were all cast out of heaven.

You also wrote, "deliberately trying to insult and hurt muslims". May I kindly remind you that you are NOT God and therefore you can't read people's minds and therefore you do not know other people's motives for why they do anything. So how can you say that they or anyone "deliberately tried to insult and hurt muslims"? Most non-muslims are not evil. They don't try to "deliberately insult and hurt muslims". They are just trying to educate everyone, not just Mulsims, about what is really happening. Also, we see in others what is really in ourselves. Let me try to explain. Maybe you and many Muslims deliberately try to hurt and kill others, as seen by your retoric (what you say) and by your murderous actions, and so you think that everyone else is like you, trying to deliberately hurt you, just like you are deliberately hurting others! You identify everyone with yourselves. You think everyone else thinks like you! Well surprise, surprise. That is NOT true.

So please don't mistake my motives for writing to you like this today. I am NOT trying to hurt you! I am trying to help you because, just like God, I care for you and love you. I am trying to show you a better way to live. It is not my way. It is God's way. God loves you so much that he died for you, even while you are an enemy of his, so that when you choose to get to know Him and love Him, you can accept His great sacrifice (death) for you so that you can live forever with Him in his perfect, sinless universe some day, where everyone will love others more then themselves in peace. Where there is no suffering, death or killing.

I live in a 'moderate Muslim' country in the South East. Even here the pressure is felt amongs Christians. Church extenstions are not approved (e.g. to build a supplementary hall) - they (Muslim government staff) find all types of 'legitimate' reasons to shelve the plans.

The only thing that keeps this country going are 'Worldly Muslims' who want to live in peace with other religions. But the fanatics are just the corner waiting to get rid of the 'worldy Muslims' and take over !

There are Arabic words that mean 'a god' or 'great god' which is shown as "il-illah", and many believe Muhammd changed it to omit other gods by sayin "al-illah", then changed to "allah", to what is said today: Moslems say: la ilaha illallah Muhammad rasulullah; there is no god but allah, and Mohammed is his pro-phet'' This I clipped from a Moslem site, Notice, Muhammad is capitalized, but not allah.

To prous muslim
According to the Qur'an: "Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah". Those who follow him are merciful to one another, but ruthless to unbelievers" Sura 48:29. "Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush..." Sura 9:5. Also see Sura 9:29 Please note that there is not a single verse in the entire Christian Bible that contains this "open-ended", universal command to kill/or be ruthless to unbelievers.

Moslem's Sacred Stone Idol

The Qur'an itself calls the Gospel of Jesus "Guidance and Light"
The biggest threat to Islam is without a doubt the teachings of the true "Prophet of Peace" Jesus Christ. Islamic leaders go to extraordinary means to hide the Gospel of Jesus from Muslims.
(Mar 14:61 NIV) But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer.
Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Christ,[6] the Son of the Blessed
One?"
(Mar 14:62 NIV) "I AM," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of
Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of
heaven."
Who is "I AM"? Lets look in Exodus (Veelleh Shemoth)
(Exo 3:13 NIV) Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to
them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is
his name?' Then what shall I tell them?"
(Exo 3:14 NIV) God said to Moses, "I am who I am . [2] This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' "


Islam tries to gain acceptance by attesting to the truth and validity of both the Christian and Jewish holy books. But, it then clearly steps out of the light, exposing itself to its diabolical agenda, by contradicting and falsifying the facts and teachings in both these books.

http://www.bibleprobe.com/muhammad.htm

Islam claims that Allah is the same God who was revealed in the Bible. . . . then if the Bible and the Qur'an have differing views of God, then Islam's claim is false. Don't forget that Muhammad claimed in Suras 2:87, 29:46, 32:23, 5:44, 6:154, 6:155 that Allah confirmed the Torah (Taurat) and Christian Gospel (Injeel) (Sura 2:87, 5:46, 5:68, 29:46 and 43:63). So, if the Torah and Gospel are correct, all the errors in the Qur'an shown below make the Qur'an false.


A tenet of Islam is that both Mohammed and Jesus of Nazareth were both Muslims. Islam says both were prophets sent by Allah. If this were true, then it is mandatory that these two great prophets must coincide exactly in all points and never contradict each other. Did not the same Allah send both of them? Then, aren't even the smallest of contradictions between the two, very big red flags? And there are a great many, which you will see below.
Sura 5:68 - Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law (Torah), the Gospel (Injeel), and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord."
Sura 29:46 Muslims are told by Allah, not to question the authority of the scriptures of the Christians, saying, "And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one;
Islam says that Jesus did not die. So, again --Islam has proven to be false; because Muhammad claimed the Gospel is true, and all 4 Gospels (Injil) testify that Jesus died and rose from the dead. God does have a begotten Son (not made, but one with the Father), which Islam denies. The Jewish Torah / Taurat (Tawrat) clearly indicated this over 1000 years before Muhammad and Islam. In addition their are collateral 1st century sources that testify that Jesus was put to death. In the "Annals" written by Roman historian Tacitus, in Book XV, Chapter 44 we read "Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius." Roman historian Josephus also wrote about the death and Resurrection of Jesus. Even Satan says that Jesus died on the cross. Also, the Roman Historian Seutonius wrote in his work "Life of the Emperor Claudius" the following about Christians: "and deny the gods of Greece, and worship the crucified sage, and live after his laws." The Roman historian Pliny wrote about Jesus' death in Book X of his Epistles. Julius Africanus, quoting Thallus another Roman historian, who wrote in about 52 A.D. about the miraculas happenings the day the Son of God was killed. He wrote: "On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down".

Here's just one example of what we need to expose:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."

Do you have any idea who said this?

It was Omar Ahmad, the chairman of the board of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR's spokesmen appear regularly in the media complaining about the treatment of Muslims and giving us the message that "Muslims are part of the fabric of this great country and are working to build a better America."

But when speaking to a Muslim audience, as Omar Ahmad was, the message is not so benign.

I personally have a different opinion than most of you. First off i think that the danish cartoons were inconsiderate to ALL Muslims because in the Islamic religion Muslims are taught not to make artwork of living people or animals. I think that the Danish cartoons did not keep this in mind and need to remember that as a part of the global media that inflamatory comments these days are not met nicely BY ANYONE. Though i think that the Danish cartoons were unsensitive i also believe that the small portion of radical Muslims that reacted violently to the cartoons are no better than the cartoonists, because they make their own cause look bad by doing exactly what some of these cartoons are saying. Also we need to remember that muslims are not the only people who have used violence with religion. Need i remind Christians of the crusades, manifest destiny, the california missions, etc. Jews must remember that there is a war being fought currently between themselves and palestinians. The list for every religion imaginable is endless. Knowing this we need to remember that no religion is perfect and that the perfection of religion is in the eyes of the people who practice it, and unless you are part of that religion you should not judge it. One last thing i have to say is about Jihad. For all those of you who don't know Jihad is a struggle, in Islam the greater Jihad is a battle WITHIN ONESELF, and the lesser Jihad is physical battle in DEFENSE of the Muslim religion. With this in mind i hope you have new information and might rethink your opinions.

I am a Muslim girl, i am an Arab, Egyptian particularly..I'm not going to comment on anything that was said here. i just have two points to make:

1. It was really stupid and narrow-minded of us muslims to be enraged by such cartoons, not because they are not offensive, but because it was us muslims who screwed up and made it reach that far. We "say" we are muslims, but our actions do nothing to prove it. We hardly follow the manners of our religion yet we expect others to. If we want respect, WE SHOULD EARN IT! that's not too difficult to understand.

2. i think it's acceptable that people critize each other. i just have one suggestion, wouldn't it make more sense to criticize the muslims themselves, and their behaviors? i mean, i guarantee no one would've had the nerve to speak up. Those of us who do not follow our religion properly and give it the sufficient respect that will encourage others to respect it as well, those of us who do that, they know themselves. my advice is: Get off your behinds and do something constructive and proactive instead of just reacting to everything. GROW UP!


I am an open-minded, truly devoted muslim. I live like any girl in her 20s, i shape my life to suit both modern life and Islamic values. I respect those who respect themselves, and are willing to stand up for their beliefs. I think everyone has the right to speak their mind, and i also believe that everyone has the right to defend what they live for. The only reason the reaction to those particular cartoons was so disastrous is because huge light was shed on them. millions of other things are being said and drawn about Islam, Christianity, and Jewdism..we just don't know they're there so we don't do anything about it. So how are these cartoons different from all others? This is a questions for all my fellow muslims who will think i've been hit in the head or brainwashed or something!

Isn't it time we finally did something?

enough with the killing and conspiring. Swallow your pride a little and stand up and say we haven't portrayed our religion in a positive light.

'nuff said.

You people have got to be fucking kidding me??! To get so worked up over a few little cartoons, both for and against! And then you sit here and argue the merits of each religion like you think you are going to convert someone or convince them their religion sucks. Anyone still religious after the age of 15 will stay that way for life. Nothing will cure stupidity that deeply embedded. Tell you what, you're all a bunch of fucking morons, jesus is dead, muhammed was a viking maroon, god is a really old joke, allah is his little sister. Anybody I missed? Oh, Satan is a pop-icon. Flag burning is fun. Blowing yourself up isn't.

The largest and most prominent reason for death and murder accross all history has been religious fanatics. Murderers all, ironically also all too weak-willed and stupid to sit back and say, what the hell am i doing? Why am I offereing my life to an old story?

That anyone worships anything at all is what astounds me. Grow a brain people, or if you really insist on being retards, how bout you all just kill yourselves quietly in your homes and save us having to clean the mess after you kill each other.

Modern warfare has no honour.

Don't like that I'm bringing up the fact that all religions are the result of weak-willed sheep following a few drugged up meglo maniacs?

Tell me about it, I love a good rant.

Dear readers,
This is for those who comment on islam being peaceful and beautiful religion. I do not know which verse of the quran gave them yhis idea? If they have, I urge them to go to Faithfreedom.org a site set exclusively to expose the violent and destructive cult that islam is and that Mohommad was nothing but a pedophile, narccist, a highway robber, a rapist who raped those whom he plundered, and the list goes on and on and on.

If anyone thinks otherwise, my suggeastion is to go to the above site and refute these alligations. This is the site that is attracting millions to its opinions and comments.

CONTRADICTIONS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT




Further internal evidence bearing on the proposition that
books of the Bible no longer reproduce the original revelation is
provided by the contradictions which exist between different
parts of its text.
(I) For example in Genesis I : 27 we read :
"So Cod created man in his own image."
And further on in 2 : 17 we read :
"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt
not eat of it."
These two quotations are contradictory. If they are to be
reconciled, we have to assume that even God is ignorant of the
knowledge of good and evil. Because Adam being the image
of God, if he was ignorant of the knowledge of good and evil,
then God also will have to be assumed as devoid of the power of
discriminating good from evil, the possession of which, in fact,
constitutes the highest divine attribute. All other attributes
are subordinate to it. If man was incapable of distinguishing
between good and evil, he was incapable of anything worthy.
What is worthy and valuable is that which is done intentionally
and out of full consciousness. What is done unintentionally
and unconsciously is not morally valuable. If man is incapable
of distinguishing between good and evil, then he is not
a moral being, being unable either to choose good or to avoid
evil.
Is God also devoid of this moral attribute according to Jewish
and Christian scholars ? Does not God know what is good and
what is evil ? If He does not know this, then why does He
send the Prophets, and what does He seek to teach through
them ? Is not God concerned to establish good and to destroy
evil ? If we forget for the moment that the very object
for which man has been created is that he should know good
from evil, and if this knowledge is forbidden to him, then
what need was there to create him ? If man could not
have knowledge of good and evil, how could he be said to have
been made in the image and likeness of God ? Without an
insight into moral facts and moral distinctions man couldnot reproduce any likeness of God. If man was the image
of God, it is wrong to think that he was forbidden to go near
the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If he was forbidden
to go near the tree of knowledge of good and evil, then it
is wrong to say that God created man in His own image.
(2) In Genesis 2 : 17 we read :
For in the day that thou eatest thereof (the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil) thou shalt surely die.
In Genesis 2 : 9 we read :
And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree
that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food ; the tree of life
also in the midst of the garden and the tree of knowledge of
good and evil.
This verse can mean only one of two things : either that there
was one tree which was capable of giving life as well as the
knowledge of good and evil ; or that there were two trees, one
with life-giving powers and the other which gave the knowledge
of good and evil. If, according to the verse, there was but one
tree, then Genesis 2 : 17 is proved false, because verse 9 endows
the tree with life-giving powers, not with death-like properties.
If, according to Genesis, there were two trees and not one, then
these two verses become contradictory. If Adam had eaten of
the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, death was not inevitable,
because he could also have eaten of the life-giving tree.
In fact, according to the Bible, when Adam ate of the tree of
knowledge he could also have eaten of the life-giving tree. If
the consequence of eating the fruit of one tree was certain death,
the consequence of eating the fruit of the other tree was eternal
life. The situation in which Adam was placed is hard to understand
; one tree offered him eternal life, another offered death.
We know from the Bible that Adam and his wife ate of the
tree of life. We read in Genesis 3 : 2-3 :
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit
of the trees of the garden : But of the fruit of the tree which is
in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat
of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
From these verses it appears that Adam and his wife ate the
fruit of all trees except the tree of knowledge. If this account
of the Bible is true, then Adam and his wife certainly ate thefruit of the tree of life, and if they did eat of this tree of life,
how could they die ? Yet we read in Genesis 3 : 22 :
And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of
us, to know good and evil : and now, lest he put forth his hand,
and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.
This verse shows that Adam had eaten nothing of the tree
of life, and it is impossible for us to determine which of the
verses is true. Is it the one which says that Adam did not eat
of the tree of life or the one in which Adam's wife is reported to
have said that, except the tree of knowledge, they ate of all the
trees in the garden ? Nor is it possible for us to say whether
eating of the tree of knowledge results in certain death or eating
of the tree of life results in eternal life.
All these statements contradict one another, and the word of
God cannot contain such contradictions. It is certain that
these statements were added to the Bible by writers who entertained
contradictory ideas. A book which contains such contradictory
statements cannot be attributed to an ordinary
rational human being, much less to God. But Moses was an
honoured Prophet of God, and the Torah was certainly a revelation
of God received by him. We have, therefore, to assume
that those contradictions are later additions. Because of them,
no blame attaches to God or to Moses. Only we must say that
when God decided to replace the Bible by a book of lasting
value, He withheld His protection from the Bible and it was no
longer safe from human interference and from the ravages of
time.
(3) In Genesis 22 : 14 we read :
And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh :
as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be
seen.
But in Exodus 6 : 2-3 we read :
And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the
Lord, And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto
Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, and by my name
JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
The contradiction between these two passages is obvious.
The passage from Exodus says that the name Jehovah was first
revealed to Moses. Before his time no Prophet, Abraham,
Isaac or Jacob, had his name revealed to him. But the passage
from Genesis says that this name was revealed even to Abraham
and that he named a mount after it Jehovah-jireh.
(4) Similarly in Numbers 33 : 38 we have :
And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment
of the Lord, and died there, in the fortieth year after
the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in
the first day of the fifth month.
But in Deuteronomy 10 : 6 we read :
And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of
the children of Jaakan to Mosera ; there Aaron died, and there
he was buried ; and Eleazar his son . . .
It is evident that one and the same person could not die in
two different places. There can be no doubt that these two
contradictory passages were entered in the Bible by two
different scribes who have written down their own speculations
in it and presented them as the word of God.
( 5 ) In I Samuel 16 : 10-13 we read that David was the eighth
son of Jesse :
Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel.
And Samuel said unto Jesse, The Lord hath not chosen these.
And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children ? And
he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and behold, he
keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and
fetch him : for we will not sit down till he come hither. And
he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal
of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the
Lord said, Arise, anoint him : for this is he. Then Samuel
took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his
brethren : and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that
day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
But in I Chronicles 2 : 13-15 we read that David was the
seventh son of Jesse. Thus :
And Jesse begat his first-born Eliab, and Abinadab the second,
and Shimma the third, Nethaneel the fourth, Raddai the
fifth, Ozem the sixth, David the seventh.
This contradiction also shows that historians of different
persuasions have entered their views into the Bible, so that the
Bible, as we know it today, cannot be regarded as a Book of
God preserved in its original purity.(6) In II Samuel 6 : 23 we read :
"Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto
the day of her death."
But in II Samuel 21 : 8 we read :
. . . and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom
she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite.
The same book describes Michal as childless in one place
and the mother of five sons in another.
(7) Similarly in II Chronicles 21 : 19-20 we read that king
Jehoram ascended the throne at the age of thirty-two, reigned
for eight years, remained dethroned for two years and then
died of some fearful disease, i.e., he lived altogether for fortytwo
years. But in the same book (22 : 1-2) we read :
And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest
son king in his stead : for the band of men that came with the
Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah
the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned. Forty and two years
old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one
year in Jerusalem.
The first passage states quite clearly that Jehoram was fortytwo
years of age at the time of his death. But the second
passage asserts that the youngest son of Jehoram, Ahaziah, was
also forty-two when he ascended the throne on the death of his
father. Were father and son of the same age and were the
other sons of Jehoram, who were killed in battle by the Arabians,
older than their father ? Can any rational human being make
these contradictory statements ? The father dies at the age of
forty-two years and his youngest son of the same age becomes
king after him. Such statements will not be found even in an
ordinary book, let alone a book revealed by God. There can
be no doubt that these contradictions did not exist in the
original revelation. They were not to be found in the utterances
of the Prophets. Being contradictions they cannot be
attributed to a single author. We have to assume that many
authors entered their thoughts into the Book of God, hoping
to have them treated as revelations. One author believed that
Jehoram was forty-two years of age when he died ; so he wrote
accordingly. Another thought that Jehoram was one hundred
years of age at the time of his death, and at that time his youngest
son was forty-two years of age ; so he wrote accordingly.
These statements are contradictory. We have to admit that
the writer who believed that Jehoram died at forty-two did not
believe his son Ahaziah to be also forty-two at the time of his
father's death, but possibly only fourteen or fifteen. We have
also to admit that the writer who believed Ahaziah to be fortytwo
years of age at the time of his enthronement did not believe
that his father at that time was also forty-two years of age.
The question is, what spiritual benefit can accrue from such a
book ? What faith or trust can such a book inspire in its
readers ? If the claim had been that the Torah is a collection
of statements made by many hundreds of thousands of Jewish
writers, even then the book would have possessed some value.
But we find that, on the one hand, this book is offered as the
very word of God, and that, on the other, it contains thousands
of contradictions. This unwarranted claim on behalf of the
Bible takes away even such value as it would have possessed,
had no such claim been made on its behalf. Such a book
cannot serve as a guide, and who can say that after such a book
we did not need another ?

still Rome. The Roman and Greek languages are very difficult.
If Roman influence had at all penetrated Jewish life, it should
have resulted in the assimilation of Latin (and not Greek)
words into the Hebrew language. Yet the oldest manuscripts
of the Gospels are all in Greek. This proves that the Gospels
were written down at a time when the Roman Empire had
become divided and its eastern possessions had become part of
the Greek Empire, so that the Greek language had begun to
exert its influence on Christianity and its literature.
(vii) Phrases such as the following which are preserved in
the Gospels in their original form are all Hebrew phrases.
(I) "Hosanna " (Matthew 21 : 9) ;
(2) "Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani" (Matthew 27 : 46) ;
(3) "Rabbi" (John 3 : 2) ;
(4) "Talitha cumi" (Mark 5 : 41).
(viii) From The Acts (2 : 4-13) it appears that even after the
crucifixion, Jews spoke Hebrew :
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to
speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out
of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised
abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded,
because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,
Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans ? And how
hear we, every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born ?
Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in
Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and
Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of
Libya about Cyrene, and in strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
Cretans and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our
tongues the wonderful works of God. And they were all
amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What
meaneth this ? Others mocking said, These men are full of
new wine.
It is evident that at this time the language spoken in Palestine
was Hebrew. Speaking any other language was extraordinary.
Among the names mentioned is Rome, which means that
the Roman language was not spoken in Palestine and whoever
spoke it seemed a stranger. We are not concerned here with
the merits of the narrative but we only wish to point out that
this passage from The Acts proves conclusively that even after
the crucifixion the language of the Jews was Hebrew. Those
who knew other languages were exceptions. When some of the
disciples spoke these other languages-among them Latin,
some people thought they were drunk and talking nonsense.
If the country as a whole used Roman or Greek, no such
reaction was possible.
It is clear, therefore, that the language which Jesus and his
disciples spoke was Hebrew, not Latin or Greek. So copies of
the New Testament written down in Latin or Greek must have
been written down long after the time of Jesus, at a time when
Christianity had begun to penetrate into Roman territory and
Roman imperialist power had become divided into the Italian
and Greek parts. Books of this kind, composed one or two
hundred years after Jesus by unknown authors and attributed
by them to Jesus and his disciples, can be of little use to any
believer today. It was necessary, therefore, that we should
have had another book sent to us from Heaven, free from these
defects and one which readers could regard with certainty as
the very word of God

THE NEW TESTAMENT EXAMINED









We have seen that the Old Testament has suffered interpolations
and changes in form as well as matter. It is possible no
longer to use it as a guide. Let us turn now to an examination
of the New Testament.
The books collected into the New Testament do not constitute
the utterances of Jesus nor of his disciples. Jesus was
a Jew and so were his disciples. If any of Jesus' utterances
were to be found preserved in their originality, they could
only be in the Hebrew language. So also with the utterances
of his disciples. But no copy of the New Testament in ancient
Hebrew exists in the world. The old copies are all in Greek.
Christian writers try to cover this grave defect by saying that in
the time of Jesus the language in general use was Greek.
This is impossible for more reasons than one. Nations do not
easily give up their language. It is for them as valuable an
inheritance as any property or other possession. In Eastern
Europe there are people who for three or four hundred years
have lived under Russian rule, but their languages remain
intact to this day. France has ruled over Morocco and Spain
over Algiers f o r a long time. Yet the language of these subject
peoples is still Arabic. Two thousand years have passed since
the time of Jesus. Yet the Jews have not forgotten their
language. Even today in parts of Europe and America, Jews
speak Yiddish, a corrupt form of ancient Hebrew. If this long
time spent amongst other peoples has not destroyed the Jewish
language, could a brief association with the Romans destroy it ?
Let us remember that Roman rule in Palestine had begun only
about fifty years before the advent of Jesus. This is not long
enough for a people to forget their language. But there are
other important considerations also to be kept in view :
(i) Nations which attain to any importance in history do not
give up their language, and the Jews were a very important
people indeed.
(ii) The religion of the jews was recorded in Hebrew, and
for this reason particularly, it was impossible for them to give
up their language.
(iii) In the scale of civilization and refinement, the Jews did
not regard themselves as inferior to the Romans, but rather
superior, and this must have made them proud of their language
and reluctant to give it up.
(iv) The Jews entertained hope for the return of their political
power. Nations which fear the future become pessimistic
and therefore tend to lose pride in their language. But the
Jews in the time of Jesus were awaiting the advent of their
King who was to re-establish Jewish rule. Looking forward to
such a future, they could not have been so negligent in protecting
their language.
(v) Jewish authors of that time wrote in their own language
or in some corrupt form of it. If their language had changed,
we should have had books of the time written in a language
other than Hebrew.
(vi) The oldest manuscripts of the New Testament are in
Greek. But in the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire had not
become divided into two halves. The centre of the Empire wasstill Rome. The Roman and Greek languages are very difficult.
If Roman influence had at all penetrated Jewish life, it should
have resulted in the assimilation of Latin (and not Greek)
words into the Hebrew language. Yet the oldest manuscripts
