Saviour-gods Mutilated Throughout Antiquity

One of the big questions nobody has asked about Mel Gibson’s The Passion Of The Christ is this: If the crucifixion was a historic event and so central to the Christian Gospel, why is it that there is no evidence whatever of a man on a cross in Christian art and monuments for almost seven centuries? Not until 692 CE, in the reign of Emperor Justinian II, was it decreed that henceforth instead of a lamb (the zodiacal sign of Aries) fixed on the cross, the figure of Jesus be placed there instead. Another question: How is it that the earliest known figure of any man on a cross comes from about 300 BCE and that “person” is not Jesus but Orpheus, a mythical Greek sun-god?

Hubal in the Worship of Pre-Islamic Arab Consciousness

It has always been the missionary tradition to jump from one nefarious claim to another in trying to ascertain the nature of “Allah”. We have previously shown some of the more common theories that they propagate, ranging from Allah (T) being the “moon god” to Ar-Rahman being a term for “promeganate”. A recent missionary allegation has also been hurled against a beatific salutation of the Prophet Muhammad sallallah `alayhi wa sallam. Now a new postulation of the missionary has been made in their article, namely that “Allah” is synonymous with the god Hubal of the pagan Makkans!

A Counter-Challenge to Sam Shamoun and the Christian Missionaries

Recently Sam Shamoun, a well-known belligerent and provocative Christian missionary at Answering Islam, issued a challenge to Muslims to prove that Jesus (peace be upon him) did not claim to be God, as per the Qur’anic statement. It is obvious, however, that his demands are as preposterous as it is stupid. The Qur’an certainly quotes or paraphrases Jesus as saying that he is not God, but in Arabic. This is because the Qur’an has affirmed itself to be revealed in Arabic text, sent down to an Arab prophet, lest its audience uses the excuse that they will not be able to understand the Qur’an if were brought down in a foreign tongue.

Differences Between Modern Bible Translations

We will take the most popular Bibles such as the King James Version (KJV), the Revised Standard Version (RSV), the New International Version (NIV), the Good News Bible (GNB), the Living Bible Version (LBV) as well as the Christian Community Bible (CCB) and contrast the same verses within these Bibles.
