SINUBUKAN ni Basrawie Abdul-Aziz na ATAKIHIN ang mga KRISTIYANO gamit ang MATTHEW 15:9.
SABI NI ABDUL-AZIZ:
I AM NOT CREATOR, I AM NOT GOD AND DO NOT WORSHIP ME! - JESUS CHRIST. In Biblical account. "But in vain they do worship me (Jesus), teaching for Doctrines the commandments of men". - Matthew 15:9.
Basrawie Abdul-Aziz, I am AMAZED at HOW LITTLE YOU KNOW of the BIBLE and YET YOU MAKE CLAIMS USING BIBLE VERSES that YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
MATTHEW 15:9 is NOT DIRECTED at CHRISTIANS but AT MUSLIMS.
IT is a QUOTATION taken from ISAIAH 29:13, which refers to the PERSON/PERSONS in ISAIAH 29:12.
ISAIAH 29:13 SAYS:
The Lord said: Because these people draw near with their mouths and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their worship of me is a human commandment learned by rote;
+++ MUHAMMAD "PROPHET" IN ISAIAH 29:12 +++
According to MUSLIMS, WHO is REFERRED TO in ISAIAH 29:12?
THEIR PROPET MUHAMMAD.
Ang WHO BELIEVE in MUHAMMAD?
So, MUSLIMS are the PEOPLE being CRITICIZED in MATTHEW 15:8-9.
MUSLIMS are the ONES being REFERRED to as "'This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.'"
+++ LIP SERVICE +++
Let us EXAMINE MATTHEW 15:8-9 and SEE if MUSLIMS are REFERRED to in it.
MATTHEW 15:8 SAYS:
"'This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me;
Are MUSLIMS KNOWN to LOUDLY WORSHIP GOD with THEIR LIPS?
Do we not hear them USING LOUD SPEAKERS to BLAST the AIR with their RECITATIONS?
But ARE THEIR HEARTS NEAR or FAR from GOD?
DO WE NOT HEAR of WARS and CONFLICT that SHOW MUSLIMS KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE and even their FELLOW MUSLIMS?
DO WE not WITNESS MUSLIMS ATTACKING the BIBLE and CHRISTIANS WITHOUT PROVOCATION? DO we NOT READ that MUSLIMS FABRICATE LIES AGAINST the BIBLE and AGAINST CHRISTIANS?
ARE THESE ACTS the ACTS of PEOPLE whose HEARTS are NEAR GOD?
+++ TEACHINGS MADE BY MAN +++
ISAIAH 29:13 and MATTHEW 15:9 SAY:
"in vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines.'"
MUSLIMS BELIEVE in their PROPHET MUHAMMAD as a "PROPHET OF GOD."
But ASK ANY MUSLIM if THEY HAVE PROOF that GOD SENT THEIR PROPHET MUHAMMAD as HIS MESSENGER?
THEY will AVOID the QUESTION because THEY KNOW that THERE IS NO PROOF that GOD EVER TALKED to their PROPHET to SEND HIM as HIS PROPHET or MESSENGER.
So, WHO SENT the PROPHET OF ISLAM if GOD DID NOT SEND HIM?
DID ISLAM'S PROPHET ONLY SEND HIMSELF?
And if there is NO PROOF that GOD SENT MUHAMMAD, are MUSLIMS BELIEVING in GOD'S TEACHINGS or in the TEACHINGS of A MAN?
+++ QURAN "WORD OF GOD"?
MUSLIMS also BELIEVE in the QURAN.
But ASK ANY MUSLIM if GOD HIMSELF SPOKE ANY WORD in the QURAN, and HE WILL AVOID the QUESTION.
That is because MUSLIMS KNOW that GOD NEVER SPOKE A WORD in the QURAN.
They CLAIM that the QURAN was "REVEALED" by "ANGEL GABRIEL."
But ASK THEM if ANYONE HEARD or SAW "ANGEL GABRIEL" TALK or "REVEAL" the QURAN to their PROPHET, THEY WOULD AGAIN AVOID the QUESTION.
That is because MUSLIMS KNOW that NO ONE EVER SAW or HEARD this "ANGEL GABRIEL" REVEAL ANYTHING to their PROPHET.
So, WHOSE WORDS are THOSE in the QURAN? If THEY are NOT the WORDS of GOD, are they not MERE WORDS of MEN?
Thus DO MUSLIMS BELIEVE in MERE PRECEPTS of MEN as ISAIAH 29:13 ang MATTHEW 15:9 STATE?
+++ EVIDENCE IS CLEAR +++
The EVIDENCE is CLEAR. CHRISTIANS are NOT the ONES REFERRED TO in MATTHEW 15:8-9.
MATTHEW 15:8-9 REFER to MUSLIMS.
