I already told you the Truth, God's truth. But it's you who doesn't want to listen.
Jesus did not establish any religion but followed the religion of Abraham which is the Surrender of One's will to God.
Christianity is not established by Jesus but rather by the self-professed disciple Paul without clear proof and authority from God except one alleged
vision of Jesus telling him to preach the gospel to the gentiles.
The true teachings of Jesus is not what the Christians are following but the teachings of Paul. If you want to learn the true teachings of Jesus you
must become a new man, for new wines are not put on old bottles lest they break.
Become a new man if you must contain the true doctrine of Jesus.
One day Jesus called together his disciples and went up on to the mountain, and when he had sat down there his disciples came near unto him; and he
opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 'Great are the benefits which God hath bestowed on us wherefore it is necessary that we should serve him
with truth of heart. And forasmuch as new wine is put into new vessels, even so ought ye to become new men, if ye will contain the new doctrine that
shall come out of my mouth. Verily I say unto you, that even as a man cannot see with his eyes the heaven and the earth at one and the same time, so
it is impossible to love God and the world.
'No man can in any wise serve two masters that are at enmity one with the other: for if the one shall love you, the other will hate you. Even so I
tell you in truth that ye cannot serve God and the world for the world lieth in falsehood, covetousness, and malignity. Ye cannot therefore find rest
in the world, but rather persecution and loss. Wherefore serve God and despise the world, for from me ye shall find rest for your souls, hear my words
for I speak unto you in truth.
'Verily, blessed are they that mourn this earthly life, for they shall be comforted.
'Blessed are the poor who truly hate the delights of the world, for they shall abound in the delights of the kingdom of God.
'Verily, blessed are they that eat at the table of God, for the angels shall minister unto them.
'Ye are journeying as pilgrims. Doth the pilgrim encumber himself with palaces and fields and other earthly matters upon the way? Assuredly not: but
he beareth things light and prized for their usefulness and convenience upon the road. This now should be an example unto you; and if ye desire
another example I will give it you, in order that ye may do all that I tell you.
'Weigh not down your hearts with earthly desires, saying: "Who shall clothe us?" or "Who shall give us to eat?" But behold the flowers and the
trees, with the birds, which God our Lord clotheth and nourisheth with greater glory than all the glory of Solomon. And he is able to nourish you,
even God who created you and called you to his service; who for forty years caused the manna to fall from heaven for his people Israel in the
wilderness, and did not suffer their clothing to wax old or perish, they being six hundred and forty thousand men, besides women and children. Verily
I say unto you, that heaven and earth shall fail, yet shall not fail his mercy unto them that fear him. But the rich of the world in their prosperity
are hungry and perish.
There was a rich man whose incomings increased, and he said, "What shall I do, O my soul? I will pull down my barns because they are small, and I
will build new and greater ones: therefore thou shalt triumph my soul!" Oh, wretched man! for that night he died. He ought to have been mindful of
the poor, and to have made himself friends with the alms of unrighteous riches of this world; for they bring treasures in the kingdom of heaven.
'Tell me, I pray you, if ye should give your money into the bank to a publican, and he should give unto you tenfold and twentyfold, would ye not give
to such a man everything that ye had? But I say unto you, verily, that whatsoever ye shall give and shall forsake for love of God, ye receive it back
an hundred-fold, and life everlasting. See then how much ye ought to be content to serve God.
This is the TRUTH, by Him in whose hand is my soul. Find out who the real Jesus is and his true teachings, what you read in the bible is only what
those who corrupted it want you to read, those who wanted to establish Idolatry by making Jesus to be more than a man will find that on the Day of
Judgment, Jesus and his disciples will be a witness against them.
*** Jesus' own testimony as recorded in the Holy Qur'an, God's final Testament:
019.030 He spake: Lo! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the Scripture and hath appointed me a Prophet,
019.031 And hath made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and hath enjoined upon me prayer and almsgiving so long as I remain alive,
019.032 And (hath made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblest.
019.033 Peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!
019.034 Such was Jesus, son of Mary: (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.
019.035 It befitteth not (the Majesty of) Allah that He should take unto Himself a son. Glory be to Him! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it
only: Be! and it is.
019.036 And lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So serve Him. That is the right path.
019.037 The sects among them differ: but woe unto the disbelievers from the meeting of an awful Day.
019.038 See and hear them on the Day they come unto Us! yet the evil-doers are to-day in error manifest.
019.039 And warn them of the Day of anguish when the case hath been decided. Now they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not.
Take your warning, slymatt. Do not be one of those who purchase error at the price of guidance.
Take it from a witness from the Children of Israel.
003.052 But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he cried: Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah ? The disciples said: We will be
Allah's helpers. We believe in Allah, and bear thou witness that we have surrendered (unto Him).
003.053 Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed and we follow him whom Thou hast sent. Enrol us among those who witness (to the
