I am repeatedly telling the people in this forum that JESUS of the Bible and ISA of the Quran is totally different. Our Lord JESUS is none other than the GOD Almighty or SON of GOD or SON of MAN, but your ISA is NOTHING but a simple human being and a prophet of Allah. PAUL did NOT make JESUS God, but the Bible clearly vouches for HIS divinity. Kindly do your home-works on your Quran first and then the Bible. It is my earnest desire that you and the rest of Muslim world believe in JESUS and have ETERNAL LIFE. May the Spirit of God open your Eyes to the LIGHT, your Ears to the TRUTH, and your Heart to His SON, the Lord JESUS CHRIST. JESUS CHRIST, the Almighty God, bless you all….!
