Following are many proofs, from the Bible, and Books of the Apostles, that "the son of God" is given to show one's honor. reverence, high position and love (because of his believing in God). These proofs are evidence to the fact that blood relation, or begetting, are not meant by the above term. All praise is to God whom the disbelievers Falsely Describe.
Satan repeatedly says, "If thou be the son of God...", this means "honorary son of God." Jesus said to his Disciples: (Pray for them which despitefully use you. and persecute you. That ye may be the children of you father which is in heaven). Matt. 5:44-45. He also said: ( But thou, when thou hast shut thy door, pray to the Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in the secret shall reward thee openly). Matt 6:6.
WHERE does it SAY in the verse (Matthew 4:3) that the term "son of God" is equivalent to "honorary son of God"?
Our MUSLIM REACTOR is ADDING THINGS to what the BIBLE is CLEARLY SAYING: That JESUS is TRULY the SON of GOD.
The MUSLIM REACTOR seems IGNORANT of the CONTEXT of the verse and of the devil's statement.
Why was the devil trying to test the TRUTH that JESUS is INDEED the SON OF GOD?
If we read back to the Third Chapter of Matthew, we will see in Mt 3:17 that GOD HIMSELF has SAID that JESUS is His "BELOVED SON."
So, in the following chapter, in Mt4:3, we see the DEVIL CONTESTING what GOD had just PROCLAIMED.
In the same way that our MUSLIM REACTOR DOES NOT BELIEVE that JESUS is TRULY the SON OF GOD, the DEVIL is also INSISTING on HIS DISBELIEF. The DEVil was even trying to DISPROVE the TRUE SONSHIP of JESUS.
Thus, in Mt4:3 we see that THOSE who DISPUTE or DISBELIEVE that JESUS is TRULY the SON OF GOD is only REPEATING the DISBELIEF of the DEVIL.
Also, those who DO NOT BELIEVE that JESUS is THE SON of GOD are trying to show that GOD is a LIAR.
GOD HIMSELF has just said that JESUS is HIS BELOVED SON and yet HERE is the DEVIL saying that GOD LIED as shown by his QUESTIONING or DOUBTING the DIVINE SONSHIP of CHRIST.
To say that JESUS is NOT the TRUE SON OF GOD is to MAKE GOD a LIAR.
The above meaning is repeated many times in the words that are attributed to Jesus. All these text mean that "the Father" is the one who teaches, guide and protects His believing slaves. They do not mean FatherHood in the manner of blood relation. Allah is praised in that this is not true of Him.
Our MUSLIM REACTOR is PROVING here that THEIR GOD, ALLAH, IS NOT the GOD being REFERRED TO by JESUS.
He is saying that THEIR ALLAH is NOT the FATHER of JESUS, whereas the FATHER of JESUS HIMSELF IS TELLING US that JESUS is INDEED HIS OWN SON.
The CLAIMS of the MUSLIM REACTOR HAS NO BASIS IN FACT. He is only MAKING IT UP.
5. Satan said to Jesus: (If thou be the son of God, cast thy self down: for it is written He shall give his angels thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against the stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the lord thy God). Matt 4:6-7
This verse DOES NOT DISPROVE that JESUS is GOD. In fact, IT EVEN PROVES that the CHRIST is GOD.
WHO is BEING TEMPTED by the DEVIL in Mt4:6-7? Was the devil TEMPTING GOD THE FATHER or JESUS?
The devil was TEMPTING JESUS to "cast [him]self down."
What did Jesus say in reply?
The LORD JESUS said, "Thou shalt NOT TEMPT the LORD, THY GOD."
The response of JESUS is clear: He was telling the devil that HE [JESUS] was GOD and that the devil should not TEMPT GOD [JESUS].
GOD is PRAISED by THOSE WHO BELIEVE that JESUS IS GOD.
In the above text, Jesus confirms what God said concerning him, which Satan quoted. If Jesus, himself, is meant by what God said, then how can he be God, or the son of God, as the Christians claim?
How can the SON of GOD be GOD?
It is OBVIOUS. The SON of a MAN is ALSO a MAN.
So, WHAT is the NATURE of THE SON of GOD?
The SON of GOD is ALSO GOD.
The CHRISTIAN BELIEF is TRUE and CORRECT.
They claim that Jesus' actions and attributes are those of God. How, then can Satan say to Jesus; (And He shall give his angels charge concerning you?) Does God need to be taken care of and protected by the angels, so that his feet will not be dashed against the stone? (The One True God) Is not the one who needs protection, from falling down, of the angels, but a slave, powerless, humble and in Need?
DID JESUS PLAY ALONG with what the devil was telling Him? Or did JESUS TELL the devil NOT TO TEMPT HIM who is GOD?
JESUS is GOD so HE DID NOT NEED the PROTECTION of ANGELS. So, instead of casting Himself down as insisted by the devil, JESUS REITERATED HIS GODSHIP by telling the devil that he should not tempt GOD.
6. Jesus said to Satan: (It is written again, thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.) This text is one of the major proof that Jesus believed that God or Allah is the Lord and God.
Again, ALLAH is NOT MENTIONED in this VERSE (nor in ANY VERSE in the BIBLE). Our MUSLIM REACTOR SHOULD STOP ADDING WORDS or PERSONALITIES in the TEXTS.
It is appearing that our MUSLIM REACTOR is TWISTING and DISTORTING VERSES in an attempt to SHOW ILLUSIONS or NON-FACTUAL ACCOUNTS.
He should STOP doing that. It is NOT HONEST.
I'm SORRY to sound BLUNT but we should always be TRUTHFUL.
Jesus did not want to tempt his Lord, to see if God could help him. If Jesus was God, then, who is he going to tempt? Is he tempting his Father, to know if He is going to protect him from stone? Is he tempting himself, to see if he can protect himself if he fell from the top of the temple? Truly, the worst kind of Minds are those that read but do not Comprehend.
That SHOWS and PROVES that when Jesus said "Thou shalt not put the LORD, THY GOD, to the TEST" HE was NOT REFERRING to HIS FATHER as the one to be tempted. HE WAS REFERRING TO HIMSELF.
If Jesus was referring to the GOD THE FATHER, He should have told the devil that "I will not put the LORD, MY GOD, to the test." But Jesus DID NOT SAY THAT.
Instead, WHAT DID HE SAY?
HE TOLD the DEVIL to "NOT PUT THE LORD, THY GOD, to the test."
Jesus was telling the DEVIL NOT to TEMPT HIM because HE WAS HIMSELF GOD.
The above is clear evidence that Jesus confirms that Allah or God alone, is the Lord and God, the One who has All Power and Ability, not Jesus.
Again, the MUSLIM REACTOR is MAKING CONCLUSIONS that ARE NOT IN THE TEXT.
Again, ALLAH is NOT MENTIONED in the VERSE. ALLAH is NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE in the BIBLE. Therefore, IT IS WRONG to CLAIM that Jesus is "confirming that Allah" is the Lord and God.
The ONE, TRUE GOD is the FATHER (Jn17:3). And since JESUS is HIS TRUE SON (Mt3:17, 17:5), JESUS is also TRUE GOD. A MANGO tree will NOT bear an APPLE. As a CARABAO will NOT bear a DOG.
Therefore, GOD will NOT bear a SON who is NOT HIMSELF GOD.
