"What Child is This?"

What child is this, who, laid to rest, On Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate, Where ox and donkeys are feeding? Good Christians, fear, for sinners here The silent Word is pleading. Nails, spears shall pierce him through, the cross he bore for me, for you. Hail, hail the Word made flesh, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh, Come, peasant, king, to own him. The King of kings salvation brings, Let loving hearts enthrone him. Raise, raise a song on high, The virgin sings her lullaby Joy, joy for Christ is born, The babe, the Son of Mary.

This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the son of Mary.

Ancient Hebrew prophecy was fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. All part of the Creator's plan for the salvation of as many as will accept it. Altogether a great mystery.

Discounting all that for the purpose of debate, is there evil in the teaching or works of Jesus Christ? Did he sanction, command or exemplify extortion, pillage, plunder, rape & slavery? Did he suborn murder? Did he sanction decption?

Is there any teaching and exemplar superior to that of Jesus? Consider Kauthan ibn Abdullah ibn Abdul-Muttalib, who called himself Muhammad. Allah's slave was set to be sacrificed to an idol long before Kauthan's birth and died four years proceeding it. Four years in the womb, how did that work? It is claimed that, when Kauthan slithered out of Hell, a light was genereated that illuminated a wide expanse of desert.

When he was farmed out to a wet nurse, who had no milk for her own infant, the sheep, suffering from drought, suddenly began producing copious quantities of milk. Later, two angels appeared, opening Moe's chest, removing his heart and cleansing it of evil before replacing it. Moe's foster mother took him back to Amina, fearing he was demon possessed.

Moe married a wealthy widow 20 years his senior. When she was on her deathbed, he told her to greet his wives in Jannah. When she asked who they were, he listed four, including Mary, Mother of Jesus. Moe also claimed to be the paternal half brother of all the prophets. How does that work out? Moe seems to be half brother and step father to Jesus.

Moe next married Sauda, a widow of one of his companions and Aisha, the six year old daughter of another buddy. He was thighing her for three years before consummating the marriage. Then he was caught in her bed screwing her slave girl on her night. But wait, there's more! The old lecher took women captive in war and raped them, including Rayhana and Safiya. I thought the angles cleansed his heart of evil. Perhaps pederasty, adultery and rape are not evil?

Click this link and download my book list. The link to Reliance is broken, and there is a bette edition of Ash-Shifa at the internet archive, otherwise they should still be good. When you read The Life of Muhammad, Ash-Shifa, Hayat ul Qulub and Ibn Sa'd, you will learn a great deal that will disgust you but read them anyway. You need to know!

Light versus darkness: Jesus, The Light, "Muhammad," the Darkness.

In brief.

Thanks for the post, Ben.
