### Part 6 - Defeating the Argument “Was Jesus Son of God?” Mathematically ….

A- Calculating the Risk of saying that Jesus was “Son of God” vs. “Messenger of God”, and what will be the consequences?

1- Risk of saying he is a “messenger of God”:

(O God, forgive me for saying the following)

(Supposedly) If Jesus was really son of God, and he will carry your sins then he will forgive you saying that he is a messenger of God, especially that in the Bible it was mentioned many times that “God sent me”, and “God is greater than me”, and “God, he is only good one”, and messenger of God will fit all these expressions, and being messenger from GOD is not a bad term at end, so let’s have 50% risk that Jesus will send you to hell for saying this.

But, in Islam or in Judaism (although Jews don’t believe in Jesus PBUH) there is no risk of saying on someone a messenger of God, if it’s proved that he was, so it’s free risk = 0%.

Total risk for saying Jesus is only a messenger of God =

Average (50% + 0% + 0%) = 16.67% risk only.

2- Risk of saying falsely that he is a “Son of God”?

Then the risk is very high, where all power is in God’s hands and Jesus has no power to change God’s will, especially that God said in the bible before:

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
[Isaiah 43:10-12]
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God.
[Exodus 20:3-5]
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
[Mark 12: 29-32]

But despite all of that, (supposedly) we’ll take the risk in Christianity is 0% for saying “Son of God”, for the sake of argument.

But, in Islam and in Judaism it’s completely forbidden, even in entire Torah (the Old Testament) the word “Son of God” was never mentioned, therefore the risk will be 100% both.

The total risk will be:
Chr. (0%) + Islam (100%) + Judaism (100%) = 66.67 %.

Comparing both results, it’s clear enough that saying Jesus is “Son of God” is more risky than saying he is “messenger of God” (66.67> 16.67), almost 4 times.

B – Transferring Risk in Islam and Christianity?

1- Risk in Islam:

If Islam was wrong, you can always find someone to blame, the holy book is not changed since the beginning, even the first copy is available, and it was written on Prophet’s days, and who collected it is also known (Zaid ibn Thabet) by the commands of Caliphs Abu Baker and Othman, and all sayings of Prophet Muhammad is gathered in 9 books (Bukhari, Muslim, etc..) with series of men names who narrated them till the prophet, so if any one of them was wrong, you can easily blame one of them and point your finger on him saying that this man deceived me, so God will not punish you for that.

2- Risk in Christianity:

If Christianity was wrong, there is no one to blame, those who wrote the bibles are unknown, but by their first names only (Mark, John, Luke, Mathew) so how you will know them in the Day of Resurrection.
And those who developed the concepts of Christianity during the first centuries are also unknown, so there is no one to blame but yourself, and when you ask Jesus, most probably will answer you as following, as mentioned in the Bible:

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
{Mathew 7:22-23]

Therefore, in this way too Islam is safer.

C – Probability of Entering Paradise?

If Jews were going to enter the paradise, Christians and Muslims will enter with them for sure, since we all believe in Moses as Prophet. So, will give 100% for all.

If Christians were to enter the paradise, then Jews will not enter because they didn’t believe in Jesus, but Muslims will enter for sure, because they believe in Jesus (as prophet of course).

Then, Jews will take 0%, Christians 100%, Islam 100%.

But in other hand, if Muslims were to enter the paradise then neither Jews nor Christians will enter the paradise because both never believed in Muhammad (PBUH), the grade here will be 0% for Ch & JE, and 100% only for Islam.

Calculating the average of all points:
Jews (100, 0, 0)                      = 33.3%
Christians (100, 100, 0)           = 66.7%
Islam (100,100,100)                = 100% – Means guaranteed in God’s will.

D- Was Jesus (PBUH) a Muslim?

Islam means: “submission to God’s will”
Jesus said:

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.[Mathew 7:21]
47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. [Luke 12:47]
It’s clear enough that Jesus (PBUH) asked that each must submit his will to his God’s will, means he was also a Muslim.

Thank you O Allah, for making us Muslims.
