      Authenticity and dubious authorship of the New Testament, nonsensical theology that was conceived to patch over the many inconsistencies and internal contradictions of the NT

      Sorry, you can't get me with this. I'm well versed in NT sholarship and I know for a fact that most accusations agaisnt it due to unreliability can be easily shot down and dismissed. And even if they were true, none of them would amount for arguments in favor of Islam and the Quran, just against Christianity. And let's not get into the horrendous problems agains thte authenticity of the Quran.

          Like I said, I'm well versed in Biblical scholarship, I'm by no means uneducated, I was not even raised as a Christian, in fact, I came to accept it because of the solid case in favor of it, I'm just curious if Muslims can come up with some argument that I haven't heard before against it and in favor of their own religion.

            It does not, the writings are perfectly consistent if they come from different witnesses. If the gospels said the exact same thing over and over, that would be reason to suspect them.

            Matthew, who is a disciple, appears to copy from Mark, who is only a student of a disciple. John contradicts Matthew and Mark and has a more developed theology. These conclusions were not made by modern atheists, but by 19th century Christians who studied the Bible earnestly.

            There exists no attribution of authorship in the texts of any of the Gospels, except for Luke. The earliest first page manuscript of Matthew(P. Oxy. 2) did not have the title "KATA MATTHAION"

            According to Eusebius, who quotes from Papias, who narrated what heard from "people who knew" John the Disciple, Mark wrote the "sayings" (logia) of Jesus from the teachings of Peter in Hebrew, and Matthew also wrote Jesus' logia in Hebrew independently. The NT Gospels were obviously composed in Greek

            They come from Church tradition, which shouldn't be immediately assumed to be wrong, unless you admit that you're prejudiced against Christianity. If you want to challenge Church tradition, actually show where it's wrong, don't just expect that we will all go along with your skepticism.

          You never really see Christians justify their faith through reason, it's always just emotion, "i can feel the holy spirit" "i just know jesus is god". And this sort of faith is very susceptible to change.

          Likewise, they always justify their disbelief in islam through emotion, not reason. "i'm offended muhammad did this or that", "islam is a religion for brown people", "islam is a heresy"

          If you are a Christian, you probably don't even listen to reason. To muslims, faith means being sure by way of reason; this is inconceivable to idiots and midwits

            Well, for one there is no scientific evidence for miracles and in fact many miracles (the virgin Mary, Prophet Muhammad's night journey, etc.) violate scientific principles we have discovered that work in all documented circumstances. Not to mention that the creation story you find in the Abrahamic tradition is scientifically impossible.

            Now you might say that science and faith do not mix and each have their own lane. But given that scientific laws work for all behavior you and I experience, why should we abandon them now when it comes to analyzing the stories we see in religion?

            Oyish should force people to learn philosophy of science before they can post. The very study of miracles, by their very definition, is not scientific, as they are irreplicable, and thus does not fall under the jurisdiction of science.

            >But given that scientific laws work for all behavior you and I experience, why should we abandon them now when it comes to analyzing the stories we see in religion?
            Because science does not explain the unobserved, irreplicable concepts of religion

            On the contrary, I have never heard any Christian say this whenever they're asked about their reasons for converting. Unlike Muslim converts which are almost always extremely emitional and involve the Quran "speaking to them" in some nebulous way, just look at all those people on YouTube crying listening to Quran recitations, reason is very far away from them in those moments.
            >Likewise, they always justify their disbelief in islam through emotion, not reason.
            The many holes in the Quran are very reasoned and well known reasons for rejecting Islam, so much so that many ex-Muslims also leave the religion.
            "i'm offended muhammad did this or that",

            Funny, because at its very core Islam is essentially emotional, just like all Abrahamic religions. It is not a path of inquiry or knowledge, but of devotion and relationship. In Judaism, the relationship between God and Man is analogous to that of a father and his children. In Christianity the relationship between God and humanity is compared to that of a bride and bridegroom. In Islam however, this relationship between God and man is exemplified by the master/slave relationship. I find this rather suggestive and telling in and of itself. Islam pretends to be all about reason and oh so logical, but it’s only a façade. When all is said and done, the justification for most of the terminally autistic practices of Islam is because the quran says so. For example, Muslims try and justify the prohibition against eating pork by saying it was because of parasites or that men should grow beards because it protects the skin from sunburn or some shit, but if you press them on it, most will admit that it doesn’t matter whether or not science or reason is on their side, because all that matters is that the quran says so, so you just do it. It is the ultimate slave morality. Doing things (or abstaining from them), not because it is in accordance with Reality and nature, but because a particular person (Allah in this case) tells you to do it. This makes for a pathetic, childish morality, and emotional religion, and one need not look far to find examples of muslims having emotional outbursts and throwing tantrums whenever someone pokes holes in their moronic ideology

            >Islam is essentially emotional
            Pure Islam in all its branches autistically adheres to the laws of logic. Logic is built on axioms, in Islam, the axiom is: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.

            If you accept this axiom, then everything in Islam follows, we follow whatever Allah and His messenger says, nobody else has any authority, except through the statements of Allah and His messenger.

            If you claim something about Islam, it must always have a chain going back to them. You can never take any piece of information for granted, whereas in Christianity, Catholics are currently accepting gays just because their pope said so.

            In Islam, there is no centralized authority where whatever they say goes. The weight of your claim lies only in the evidence and logic you use. This is the essence of fiqh(understanding)

            We Muslims understand, Christians and other religions only follow blindly

            autistically adheres to the quran and Mohammed** don’t just skip that part and call it “logic” just because you already accept the claim that any of that shit is true in the first place.
            >In Islam, the axiom is: There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger
            >If you accept this axiom, then everything in Islam follows
            I never said Islam was incoherent/internally inconsistent. If you accept the core tenets of any religion then the rest follows, this isn’t unique to Islam. The problem is that there is no reason to accept such an axiom in the first place, specifically the second half (mohammed is a true prophet of God).
            >The weight of your claim lies only in the evidence and logic you use
            Unless that evidence and logic leads to a conclusion that is not concurrent with the Quran or the Hadiths, then you must follow the quran anyways and throw logic out the window
            >We Muslims understand, Christians and other religions only follow blindly.
            Lmao for all this play at being le rationalists you seem to be forgetting that the israelites have a long tradition of rationalism and debate that precedes the birth of Islam. Muslims can only cope by saying that the israelites corrupted the torah because they know Mohammed doesn’t meet the criteria it gives for a true prophet, but in the next breath they will tell you that the (corrupted) torah also predicted that Mohammed would come. And that’s not even mentioning the REAL philosophical traditions like Pyrrhonism, Madhyamika Buddhism, Neoplatonism or Vedanta. The philosophy of any of these schools absolutely debases and destroys Islam and any other devotional/emotional religion for that matter.

            From Moldbug's Open Letter, regarding historical Progressive Protestant Christianity:

            When dealing with historical movements it’s often useful to ask: is this dead, or alive? If the former, what killed it, when, and how? If you cannot find any answers to these questions, it is a pretty good clue that you’re looking at something which isn’t dead.

            And if it’s not dead, it must be alive. And if it’s alive, but you no longer identify it as a distinct movement, the only possible answer is that it has become so pervasive that you do not distinguish between it and reality itself. In other words, you do not feel you have any serious alternative to supporting the movement. And you are probably right.

            Note that this is exactly how you, dear open-minded progressive, see the modern children of those stubborn “Fundamentalists.” You read the conflict asymmetrically. You don’t think of yourself as someone who believes in “Progressivism.” You don’t believe in anything. You are not a follower at all. You are a critical and independent thinker. Rather, it is your fundamentalist enemies, the tribe across the river, who are Jesus-besotted zombie bots.

            The first step toward a historical perspective on the conflict is to acknowledge that both of these traditions are exactly that: traditions. You did not invent progressivism any more than Billy Joe invented fundamentalism. Thanks to Professor Hayes, we know this absolutely, because we know that both of these things existed 84 years ago, and you are not 84.

          1. Pure monotheism. As a former Christian I understand the trinity, and I do see how Christinas view it as monotheism, I just don't agree with it. Islam's monotheism does a better job at describing the incomprehensibility of God.
          2. Structured worship routine. 5 daily prayers and meditations throughout the day.
          3. Strong community. You can go to the mosque for any of the prayers and there will be other men there.

          5. Healthy habits
          6. Cleanliness
          7. Anti-degeneracy
          8. It has a spiritual side (Sufism) that is so, so vast and it's a fascinating ocean to dive into.- Christianity has this, particularly in eastern rites, but IMO it's not comparable. I'd actually argue that Buddhism's influence on Islam was a big part of this.

      The muslim arguments are some of the worst ones. They claim St Paul changed it and never knew the apostles, which just doesn't make sense.
      >The Quran speaks well of St Paul so this narrative is revisionist and recent
      >St Paul was in a very nice position prior to his conversion with him studying under Gamaliel, so why would he leave it all just to distort some weird israeli sect and become a tent maker if not because of his genuine conversion?
      >The book of Acts shows that St Paul met the apostles and took in their guidance, with the latter being aprehensive of him because of his persecution
      >St Peter's epistles approve of him and his teaching
      >if the writings were distorted, why weren't churches in distant parts of the world significantly different in theology?
      >The Quran basically presents stories from rejected gospels bunched togheter that date back at most to the 2nd century unlike the NT
      >Further, the idea the scriptures were corrupted comes from the Quran with it's position on the OT and NT being schizophrenic
      >the apostolic fathers also speak of St Paul and reference his work as good, including St Polycarp who was thought by apostle St John
      This whole thing is cope since St Paul in his epistles, especially Galatians 1:8, predicts Islam and it's evil.
      >nonsensical theology that was conceived to patch over the many inconsistencies and internal contradictions of the NT
      The Quran literally says Jesus is the Word of Allah, while also saying the the Word of Allah is eternal, creates birds (taken from a gnostic gospel), describes him as pure and born of a virgin, all of it taken from the bible. It also denies the crucifixion even though atheist scholars all agree it happened, said Allah just deceived people and forgot to say tell everyone for 600 years. The whole thing is a mixture of the scriptures, talmud (the whole view of cleanliness is from there and they even quote a line word by word), gnostic gospels and other stuff.

        The corruption arguments make zero sense. The Muslims affirm that the Christ's Disciples taught correct doctrine. So Muslims have to demonstrate that teachings of the Disciples and Apostles were corrupted in an insanely short period of time. They have to explain why disciples of Disciples such as Sts Ignatius, Polycarp, Papias, Clement and even St Irenaeus (who in turn was a follower of St Ignatius) invented the doctrines of the Triniry, Christ's Divinity, Death and Resurrection independently and simultaneously given that they were preaching in different corners of the Roman Empire. By Islam's own standards there's a strong chain of narration (isnad) from Christ --> St John --> St Ignatius --> St Irenaeus. Additionally, if those doctrines are fabrications, why weren't they accosted by other early Christians who were also hearers of the Disciples and Apostles. Explain why their quotations of Scripture in the first and second century AD are virtually identical both in word and usage to prove the aforementioned doctrines. How were they able to coordinate these fabrications that supposedly weren't taught by the Apostles and Disciples in the exact same way? You're forced to argue that, even with ancient means of communication, that everyone in Rome, Alexandria, Lyon, Jerusalem and Antioch just suddenly started believing in these supposedly heretical doctrines by the end of the first century - only a bit more than half a century after Christ. Not just that, but that this wholesale corruption has left literally zero remnants of what was supposedly originally taught. Mind you, they also had to coordinate to corrupt Scripture in the eact same way. The other thing to consider is that given the Apostolic Fathers often addressed Christians en masse in a certain place in their writings, those Christians necessarily were already believing in the same thing given who these epistles were written. The logistics of the Islamic arguments make zero sense.

        >describes him as pure and born of a virgin
        Muslims can't explain why it's significant that Jesus was born of the Virgin beyond "it shows Allah's power and that Jesus was special". Miracles in Islam lack broader soteriological or typological import. It's no wonder the prophets in the Qur'an come across as monotone carbon copies of each other rather than each contributing in their own unique prophecies to paint a larger picture of the coming Messiah.

            By providing alternative exegesis you're admitting that Qur'an still has to have exegetes. Your argument lies not in the risk of not following the Qur'an but in which exegesis of it is acceptable. Therefore, how do you determine that?

          You are clearly uninformed about the diversity of early Christian theology. If you read the epistles of Paul, he wasn't accepted everywhere, in Galatians, some Christians from Jerusalem came to correct Paul's teachings, call him out as a liar and preach "another Gospel". And Paul's letter to the Galatians was essential him justifying himself.

          He says, "Even if an angel were to preach a different gospel, let him be cursed" Who do you think preached this different Gospel, for Paul to say such a thing?

          According to Jospehus, after Jesus, his brother James became head of the temple and leader of the Christians, yet James is absent from the Gospels, allegedly disowning Christ. Yet Paul clearly hold James as an authority. Clearly you Christians don't have the full picture.

          It is only because much of Ebionite and Gnostic writings were lost, that the only narrative that survives the Pauline one.

          How do you know they are followers of St Paul? Antioch, Rome, Smyrna all of them are pretty far from one another, so you would have to wonder what his path was. The bible and church tradition describe how this was possible and how it went down, so you have to submit to the biblical account he was with St Peter, who was the one who founded Antioch before he went to Rome to found the see and got martyred with St Paul.

            You're using the term "to argue" in two senses. If you mean to "discuss" then yes, if you mean to "fight" then no. It's contextual. Besides which that verse is talking about proselytising, which is permitted as everyone is invited to Islam. My point is that it is explicity not allowed in Islam to become involved in (discourteous) argument with regards to religion. A Muslim according to Islam can invite you to Islam even by debate, a Muslim may not according to Islam become engaged in fights (arguments) about religion.

            Yes, like how to enslave people and rape women. There are indeed rules for that.

            I should have added patriarchy because it's more than that, it's about the complementary role of the father to be present for his children to educate them and make them learn good and evil, this is lacking in islam, mothers often do the education part and we see the awful results.
            >To an extent exists in Islam in that male offspring are favoured in inheritance matters
            This has nothing to do with primogeniture. Primogeniture is when the firstborn son gets the greater part of the inheritance, this prevents brothers from assassinating each other to become the king, etc...if ottomans had implemented that they wouldn't have murdered their brothers in cold blood with the full approval of sheikhs.

          Jesus the Messiah name directly translated into Arabic is Isa al-Masih, messiah means the anointed one and has the same meaning in Islam as in Christianity that is that Isa will return and kill the Antichrist.
          As far as I'm aware the only difference between Islam and Christianity pertaining to Jesus is whether he was crucified and died. There's no relevant doctrine of atonement in Islam related to the crucifixion, but the doctrine of repentance is essentially the same.

In modern Arabic, it is used as one of the many titles of Jesus, referred to as Yasūʿ al-Masih (يسوع المسيح) by Arab Christians and Īsā al-Masīḥ (عيسى المسيح) by Muslims.

            is what it means in Arabic. Also on the Wikipedia page says:
            In Abrahamic religions, a messiah or messias (Hebrew: מָשִׁיחַ, romanized: māšīaḥ; Greek: μεσσίας, messías; Arabic: مسيح, masīḥ; lit.'the anointed one') is a saviour or liberator of a group of people.

In modern Arabic, it is used as one of the many titles of Jesus, referred to as Yasūʿ al-Masih (يسوع المسيح) by Arab Christians and Īsā al-Masīḥ (عيسى المسيح) by Muslims.

      You can get brown gfs anywhere. Especially ones you don't have to cuck to and lose your soul over. Every Muslim convert here was a desperate incel who thought he had no options. Or someone who literally got mentally dominated by an inbred moron.

    First of all, you're no Christian if you think a religion is superior to another.
    Second, a Muslim is no Muslim if he thinks he should try to convert others.

    Islam pros
    >No bullshit like the Trinity or taking Jesus being the son of God literally (which as the Muslims point out evolved later)
    >More organized and less theologically messy
    >Removes a lot of superfluous and psychopathic parts of the old and new testaments
    >Still has mystics like the Sufis for people who actually care about theology beyond the serfslop (Christians killed their mystics)
    Christianity pros
    >Paul lets us ignore backwards Hebrew customs like genital mutilation (blood offering to Yahweh) and abstinence from pork and alcohol
    >No muhammed
    >Less obviously sinful things like child marriage and polygamy being decreed by God.
    >So theologically disorganized and messy you can ignore the dumb and evil parts (Muslims can't)
    Cons of both

      Child marriage isn't sinful in Christianity, and I welcome Christians to prove me wrong with actual scripture, and not emotion

        The issue is that Islam affirms it while Christianity doesn't have a position
        I could forgive Islam if it was just something Muhammad did instead of god literally decreeing it

            Most religious people tell me morality is objective because we humans can instinctively tell what is wrong, such as murder or theft.
            I think deep down we know pedophilia is wrong and marriage is for two people

            That's just Western Christian morality without the theology, which the world adopted because of colonialism and american hegemony.

            The case that monogamy and strict adherence to feminist age gap rules are inate to humanity is a weak one. Western society itself is regressing into polygamy

    that islam isn't explicitly against alcohol consumption and can basically be observed the same way most born-into-christians observe their religion; IE: not very seriously..

    >basically don't be drunk.
    >don't eat pork or other weird animals.
    >lunar calandar bullshit that christian popes basically corrected for with the solar gregorian calendar.
    >pray regularly, multiple times a day, and don't be a slob about it either.

    downsides are polygamy and having actual named heirs and holy sites that aren't something you can argue against without undermining the whole basis; also not having institutions that survived in reletively stable forms like the catholic church or the orthodox church(s)...

    Also the people technically in charge of those religiously mandated holy-sites are a bunch of tacky iconoclastic hicks,

    1. Pure monotheism. As a former Christian I understand the trinity, and I do see how Christinas view it as monotheism, I just don't agree with it. Islam's monotheism does a better job at describing the incomprehensibility of God.
    2. Structured worship routine. 5 daily prayers and meditations throughout the day.
    3. Strong community. You can go to the mosque for any of the prayers and there will be other men there.
    4. No drinking
    5. Healthy habits
    6. Cleanliness
    7. Anti-degeneracy
    8. It has a spiritual side (Sufism) that is so, so vast and it's a fascinating ocean to dive into.- Christianity has this, particularly in eastern rites, but IMO it's not comparable. I'd actually argue that Buddhism's influence on Islam was a big part of this.
    9. Embraces natural masculinity.
    10. Find spiritual ecstasy by following the Sharia. Sufi monks strictly follow it to become more enlightened.
    11. If it matters to you, you can have 4 wives.
    12. You can still appreciate Jesus and love him.
    13. I can't stress the communal aspect enough.

    There's even more, anon. I'd love to chat more.

      >1. Pure monotheism.
      I find unitarianism sterile and unappealing. The complexity of the Trinity is more fascinating, thought-provoking and does a better job at describing the incomprehensibility of God.
      >2. Structured worship routine
      We have the same in Catholicism.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liturgy_of_the_Hours
      >3. Strong community
      We have the same.
      >4. No drinking
      This is actually a negative for Islam, IMO
      >5. Healthy habits
      Hardly, practices like Ramadan are terrible for your health.
      >6. Cleanliness
      Every remotely civilized person pratices cleanliness.
      >7. Anti-degeneracy
      Islam allows pedophilia and polygamy.
      >8. It has a spiritual side (Sufism) that is so, so vast and it's a fascinating ocean to dive into
      Christianityi's is better.
      >9. Embraces natural masculinity.
      i.e. coomerism.
      >10. Find spiritual ecstasy by following the Sharia.
      Somebody hasn't heard of Christian mystics.
      >11. If it matters to you, you can have 4 wives.
      Polygamy is degenerate.
      >12. You can still appreciate Jesus and love him.
      No, Muslims love "Isa", a completely different person that Jesus Christ.
      >13. I can't stress the communal aspect enough.
      I can't stress that we have community too enough.

    Christianity is a Pauline heresy, in which the strictly monotheistic religion of the israelites was turned into polytheism (the trinity) and idol worship (worshipping Jesus instead of God). Islam corrects this mistake.
