“The Holy One Called Isa,” by Pastor Ward Clinton:
Injil Markus 3:1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
3:3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
3:6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
This, 3:1-6, is a demonstration of the truth proclaimed in 2:28. The Pharisees were plotting evil against Jesus while Jesus was ready to do good therefore it is obvious who was guilty of breaking the Sabbath although the people probably did not realize it at the time because of the erroneous teaching they had long listened to. (What if Abu Bakr did not teach accurately?) What if the one who compiled and created the Quran was a friend of Iblis and the jinn and was sent to deceive and empower himself under the guise of preserving truth? We are told he faithfully re-produced the accurate words but where is the proof?
3:7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
3:8 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
The geographical list shows that people were traveling great distances, for that day and age, to see and hear the holy one from God. Will that generation rise up and condemn this generation at the last day for its lack of effort to seek out and learn Isa’s teaching? Many Muslims claim they respect and honor Isa but they are actually guilty of insulting Isa because they do not read or pay any attention to what he taught when he was healing and teaching the people. Mohammad said the Injil is not corrupt. The Quran says the Injil is not corrupt. Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas said the Al-kitab (Holy Bible) is not corrupt. Muhammad Abduh Sayyid Ahmad Khan (died 1905) said “As far as the text of the [Holy] Bible is concerned, it has not been altered.” Furthermore, Muhammad Abduh said the “charge of corruption of the Biblical texts makes no sense at all.” The problem with “the Al-kitab (Holy Bible) has been corrupted” argument is that those who make that claim are ignorant of first century history and/or the whole text of the Injil (New Testament portion of the Holy Bible).
It is not wise to insult Isa (Messiah Jesus as revealed by the Al kitab). He has the words of life from the one true God. It is true that many who claim to be his followers (Christians) are corrupt but that is because they do not truly follow his teaching as revealed in the Holy Bible but that is no excuse for not knowing and studying the words of Isa as preserved in the Injil.
The reason some of those who call themselves “Christian” don’t seem to know much about the Holy Bible or genuine Christianity is because they actually are not Christians as is evidenced by their lives. Even amongst those who actually regularly attend a Bible-believing Church one must look carefully to see how their life matches up to the teaching of Isa. So how can one know? First become familiar with the New Testament portion of the Holy Bible and then request, in prayer, to the one true God for assistance in knowing the truth; this is not done by using a memorized prayer. He’s listening because He does care about you. Because God cares about you, the Injil is not corrupt, it may be hard to understand, at first, but ask Him to help you and to direct you. Ask the one true God to help you find real followers of Jesus because they are the ones who know the way to the true paradise.
