A Muslim says that God can sin and lie and fornicate!

Is Jesus God Almighty Most High? James White vs. Shadid Lewis

Part 1

Part 2

The cross examination period of James White asking Shadid Lewis questions is not there. (yet ?)

In part 2, around the 11:30 ff mark, Shadid Lewis says that God can sin – that He can lie, fornicate, and become a dog if He chooses to !!!

You can hear the audience gasp at this statement.

I have heard this many times in the last 31 years from Muslims.  I wonder if it is official doctrine.

This is the great difference between the True God of the Bible vs. the god of Islam – the true God cannot sin and cannot lie and cannot do anything against His own nature.

Titus 1:2 – “God who is not able to lie”

I John 1:5 – “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”


About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

  1. θ says:

    Arabic word “Zina” is a generic term for adornment, whereas “Al-Zina” (Q.17, v.42, Q.24, v.2 et cetera) is a specific lewdness outside the legal marriage.
    Satan himself does zina (Uzayyinan-na, Q.15, v.39), that is the adornment of evilness, which is his way of trying to mislead everyone completely without any exception, especially the believers (Q.4, v.118-119), but eventually Satan would concede that his misleading only succeeds on the unbelievers particularly (Q.15, v.40).

    Allah never tries to mislead the people. There’s no such a word “Uzayyinan-na” that may attribute the people’s misleading by God in Qur’an.

    However, Allah just makes the “existent” wrong deeds seem much alluring for the sinners. Allah lets it on purpose to give the equal treatment for the believers whose “existent” good deeds and faith are made alluring in their heart.
    Q.49, v.7. And know that among you is the Messenger of Allah, if he were to obey you in much of the matter, you would be in difficulty, but Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it alluring (Zayyana) in your hearts and has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience. Those are the guided.
    Q.35, v.8. Then is one to whom the evil deed has been made alluring (Zuyyina) so he considers it good? For indeed, Allah sends astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. So do not let yourself perish over them in regret. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what they do.
    Q.6, v.108. Revile not ye those whom they call upon besides God, lest they out of spite revile God in their ignorance. Thus We made alluring (Zayyanna) to each people its own doings. In the end will they return to their Lord, and We shall then tell them the truth of all that they did.
    Q.41, v.25. And We appointed for them companions who made it alluring (Zayyanuw) to them what was before them and what was behind them, and the word has come into effect upon them among nations which had passed on before them of Jinn and men. Indeed, they were losers.
    Q.25, v.18. They will say, Exalted are You, It was not for us to take besides You any allies. But You provided comforts for them and their fathers until they forgot the message and became a people ruined.

    Allah makes a wrong deed very much alluring for the sinners on purpose to either:
    (i) stop them with a more greater punishment accordingly, because the less punishment won’t persuade them to repent.
    Q.27, v.4. Lo, as for those who believe not in the Hereafter, We made alluring (Zayyanna) their works unto them so that they get over-indulged.

    (ii) buy a much time for them to think about their errors in life.
    Q.35, v.37. And they will cry out therein, Our Lord, remove us; we will do righteousness – other than what we were doing.

    But did We not grant you life enough for whoever would remember therein to remember, and the warner had come to you? So taste for there is not for the wrongdoers any helper.

    Inevitable Zina and the doing of sin Al-Zina by choice.
    Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 77, Number 609.
    Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: I did not see anything so resembling minor sins as what Abu Huraira said from the Prophet, who said, Allah has written for the son of Adam his inevitable share of adultery whether he is aware of it or not: The adultery of the eye is the looking (at something which is sinful to look at), and the adultery of the tongue is to utter (what it is unlawful to utter), and the innerself wishes and longs for (adultery) and the private parts turn that into reality or refrain from submitting to the temptation.

    Usually, Qur’an uses 2 particular words “Fitna” or “Bala” to describe “trial of abandonment” of Allah, that as if He just seemingly let a persecution go unpunished upon the helpless victims, temporarily.
    Fitna or Bala in the context of suffering means object of victimisation under evil, not a temptation to be subject for doing the evil, or for choosing the sins.
    Q.21, v.35. Every soul will know the taste of death to try (Bala) ye with suffering and with good as a trial; and to Us you will return.
    Q.20, v.131. Do not covet what We have granted myriads of people of the pomp and glitter of this world to try (Fitna) them.

    The means your Lord has given you are better far and more enduring.
    Q.20, v.85. Said He: We have tried (Fitna) thy people since thou didst leave them. Samari has misled them into error.
    Q.7, v.163. Ask them about the town which overlooked the sea and what befell its people when they broke the Sabbath. On their Sabbath the fish appeared before them floating on the water, but on week–days they never came near them. Thus did We tried (Bala) them because they had done wrong.
