    Greatest Objections to Christianity? (OP)


    What is/are your greatest objection(s) to Christianity and why?

    What school or branch of Islam do you consider yourself a part of?

    For the first question, relatively detailed responses are preferable to one-sentence replies.

    Thank you for your time.

    It has been said that inside each and everyone of us is a 'God shaped hole'. You can try filling this hole with all the things of the world like fast cars, houses, holidays, money, lust, power or anything else that might drive your passions. But you are left with the feeling that something is missing, God placed this longing inside all of us, and the God shaped hole can only be filled with the things of God.

    You might study all your life and still not have all the answers you need. Faith and trust in God - Allah; is just accepting that you are being called and then you do something to prove to yourself and to Allah that you are striving to submit to his will.

    Re: Greatest Objections to Christianity?

    Thing is when one does research some of the background from Christianity/Roman Catholic beliefs, eventually one will learn and see the parallels with ancient Babylon worship practices and based on the research I have done. Look at the headgear the bishops wear, this "Mitre" as it is called looks like a fish shape.

    When one researches about Christmas , one will learn about Saturnalia, they are way too similar, celebrated about the same time of the year. And researching this one will also learn about Sol Invictus ("Unconquered Sun") which when one further researches has a Dec 25 date.

    There is just too much evidence that Christianity as it is known today has pagan practices mixed into it. It pains me to say this as having a Christian/Catholic background, but in my opinion, the many Christians who cannot see this is because they rather believe what their priests says rather than do the research themselves.

    I can do any amount of research; and I will never have absolute proof for the existence of God. Although I am certain that God exists, I have to take this on faith and trust.

    If God has the power to create the universe and life, then he has the power to control what goes in the Bible. My faith is not in the anonymous authors of the Bible, and the vagaries of translations; but rather in the power of God. The Bible I read today is the Bible that God intends me to read; it is enough for my salvation.

    I have experienced profound moments of peace in times when I should be experiencing fear and worry; this peace is beyond my understanding. I have experienced events that should have ended in death, but life endured by prayer. Again these events test my understanding of coincidences happening when we place our trust in God.

    I have also heard similar stories from Muslims on this forum over the years.

    In the spirit of searching for God;

    Re: Greatest Objections to Christianity?

    There is something else worth mentioning, does any one here know of the text corruption of 1 Timothy 3:16? It was discovered in the Greek manuscripts as that is where the tampering was (one can read up on it). It was discovered because where the tampering was, the ink was apparently different. It is a good read if people are not aware of it.

    A lot of Catholics/Christians will find it hard to accept reality because they have been taught the "trinity" concept for much of their life.

    Now trinity supporters love to use this 1 John 5:7-8 (have a read up on Comma Johanneum ) And through research the older manuscripts have a different reading compared to the likes of the KJV. So if the additional text is not present in the oldest manuscripts to date, then the additional text had to be added in at some time later.

    Not one person here on earth can say they fully understand 'God'. Who can understand how the universe and life was created? Who really knows how God will judge each and everyone of us?

    We trust in God our creator without knowing the full story, we accept that God is beyond our understanding.

    Just out of curiosity, you list your religion as other, would you care to say a little more about your beliefs.

    As I grew up, I was raised in the Catholic teachings. I think it has been about 4 years now since I have decided to put some serious study, by myself, and as I did my own private study, it was that moment I realize that everything I learned as a Catholic, I had to chuck out.

    As I did my own research, it was like a whole new world was opened up to me.

    Salaam, CarefulThinker.

    I understand if someone make decision to leave his religion and convert into another religion. But what I can't understand is why I often see same behaviour among them. They always criticize the old religion that they have left. I wonder, why don't they just focus to become good believer in their new religion?

    Re: Greatest Objections to Christianity?

    My main objection to Christianity is the dishonesty on the part of Gospel writers and Paul himself which is manifested in their corruption of the Tanakh which is more commonly known as the Old Testament.Also I have serious objections regarding the preservation of the Gospels.The main point being that the Gospels we have today are not the ones which were actually written in the first century describing the life of Jesus.Papias refers to Gospels by names,but they are not these ones.
    Thirdly,I personally believe that there is a major and stark difference between Christianity and the New Testament.I do not believe that the Christian beliefs of today,especially those of the trinitarians represent the New Testament.So inshort,I have major objections to both the New Testament and Christianity.

    Thanks for your reply, when you say you are chucking out your Catholic beliefs, do you still have any thoughts on the existence of God? And if so, where is this leading you?

    This is where I should of explained myself better here, my fault. Everything I had to chuck out I learnt as a Catholic is the "Trinity" worship. It was only when I did my own study this is when I realized what I had learned as a Catholic was wrong in this. The reference in the bible actually makes it clear there is only One Creator. No partners, nothing like that.

    Actually learning for myself over the years has led me to do more private studies, especially end times matters, considering the age we live in. And I have learnt quite a lot doing private study.

    Re: Greatest Objections to Christianity?

    Generally, it's Catholics rather than other types of Christians, that I have the biggest objections to. The Vatican itself's initial purpose was to usurp the early Christian church and cloak paganism into the New Testament. The Vatican and Catholic Church, like the Jewish Kabbalists (and Rabbinical Judaism, based around the Talmud) existed for the purpose of providing a vessel for Roman Paganism and the Babylonian Mystery Religion (mother/child deity fertility cults) to thrive under a veil. It later started surfacing into Western Occultism with the Knights Templar, Freemasonry, Rosecrucianism, Theosophy, Thelema, Satanism and the New Age movement. It's very well obscured for the average folk but it's there in plain sight.

    The Vatican was the biggest early form of Controlled Opposition against Christianity, yet ironically many think that it represents what the New Testament teaches
    You also find the "Eastern Orthodox Church" come into fruition around the same time but having an overall different nature to the Vatican.

    They basically gave an excuse for Gnostics (like Sethians, Manichaens etc), Luciferians and Satanists with their inverted form of Christianity - through the Catholic Church's masking of ancient Egyptian, Roman and Babylonian mystery traditions into the Christian mask. It's so absurd when it comes down to it but it fuels that anti-Abrahamic fire that is getting stronger and stronger in the mainstream world every year.
    Basically, the Catholic Church exists as a tool to discredit Christianity.
