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)

    The good or evil nature of the plan being dependent on the object or doer’s intention. Allah is called here Khair al-makarin or the Best of planners, the qualifying word “khair” being inapplicable to an evil object.
    The Jews planned to put Jesus to death by crucifixion, and Allah made a plan to frustrate their plans; and Allah’s plan was successful………http://discover-the-truth.com/2015/01/24/response-to-critics-claim-allah-is-a-deceiver-quran-354/

    First, Moslems and Jews have the same question about Christianity on what it means Jehovah deceived Jews into thinking that Jesus was taken to heaven on an invisible way?

    Being a good deceiver is justified as doer of good works in the bible.
    Jam.2:25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works.
    Heb 11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not.

    But for Jews, Jesus was a bad deceiver.
    Mt 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

    Second. Certain Moslems have a logical opinion that by making somebody resembling him (Decotism), Jesus gets a chance to be released from his visible body, hence he becomes invisible and can levitate. The invisibility makes it harder or implausible for him to carry on preaching his Gospel to Jews.
    It is illogical for Jesus to ascend into sky and heaven without being made firstly a spirit.

    That’s why later, only certain faithful and chosen witnesses can see him of ascending to heaven.

    Therefore, the crucifixion is a process and mechanism to make him released from his body, to make him invisible, and to make him fly up.

    Early Decotist sources have preceded Qur’an on informing the secret resemblance of Christ. Apocalypse of Peter has summarised the function to make Jesus invisible and levitating.
    Apoc. Peter “……These things, then, which you saw you shall present to those of another race who are not of this age. For there will be no honor in any man who is not immortal, but in those who were chosen from an immortal substance, which has shown that it is able to contain him who gives his abundance. Therefore I said, ‘Everyone who has, it will be given to him, and he will have plenty.’
    But he who does not have it, that is, the man of this place who is completely dead, who is removed from the planting of the creation of what is begotten – whom, if one of the immortal essence appears, they think that they possess him – it will be taken from him and be added to the one who is…”

    Moreover, who deceives whom?
    Both Moslems and Jews also have a same question for Trinitarians why for 2,000 years Jesus (if he were Jehovah) has deceived people into thinking that Moshiach is not the Word, nor the Son, nor a divine person before Abraham was?

      There was no deception at all on God’s part. “God cannot lie” – Titus 1:2; cf. Hebrews 6:18
      The true God does not lie, and cannot lie. He cannot sin or do anything contrary to His nature/character.

      Acts 1:9
      “After He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.”

    Animal sacrifice to appease Allah has a different perspective from that of Christians.
    Animal sacrifice is needed to show how a man’s sin challenged Allah’s divinity in figurative sense.
    Similarly, the humans can’t be killed – along with harmless option of banishment – except if they waged a war against Allah and Prophets.

    In Islam, in light of Q.5, v.17, there’s one “unorthodox” possibility for Allah to “kill” Jesus, even all things He created, that is if Allah really weighed the sin as a serious thing against His divinity.

    The only possible reason why Allah would have “sacrificed” Jesus is if Jesus had dared to challenge Allah’s divinity, or to wage war against Him.

      As with a lot of your comments recently, this one is not clear and not understandable to me. A lot of your interaction with “Uthman Rahimullah” and “Ninja” was just too much to keep up with over the Christmas holidays; and many times I cannot understand what exactly you are trying to say.
