Islam vs Christianity
ALLAH IS GOD
Who is that Mystery God?
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted from The Message To The Blackman in America
For thousands of years, the people who did not have the Knowledge of
the person, or reality of God worshiped their own Ideas of God. He has
been made like many things other than what He really is. The Christians
refer to God as a “Mystery” and a “Spirit” and divide Him into thirds.
One part they call the Father, another part the Son, and the third part
they call the Holy Ghost; which makes the three, one. This is contrary to
both nature and mathematics. The law of mathematics will not allow us to
put three into one. Our nature rebels against such a belief of God being
a mystery and yet the Father of a son and a Holy Ghost without a wife or
without being something In reality. We wonder how can the son be human,
and the father a mystery (unknown), or a spirit? Who is this Holy Ghost
that is classified as being the equal of the father and the son?
The Christians do not believe in God as being a human being, yet they
believe in Him as being the Father of all human beings. They also refer
to God as He, Him, Man, King and The Ruler. They teach that God sees,
hears, talks, walks, stands, sits, rides, and flies; that He grieves or
sorrows; and that He is interested in the affairs of human beings. They
also teach that once upon a time He made the first man like Himself in
the image and likeness of Himself, but yet they believe that He, Himself,
is not a man or human. They preach and prophesy of His coming and that He
will be seen on the Judgment Day but is not man. They cannot tell us what
He looks like, yet man is made like Him and in the image of God, and yet
they still say that He is a mystery (unknown).
How can one teach the people to know God if He, himself, does not know
God. If you try teaching the Christians that God is also a human being,
they will say that you are crazy, that you do not believe in God and that
you are an infidel. In the meantime, while they admit that He is a
Mystery God (unknown), they teach not to make any likeness of Him; yet
they adorn their walls and churches with pictures, images and statues
like human beings.
Can God be a Mystery God and yet send prophets to represent Himself?
Have the prophets been representing a God that is not known (Mystery)?
They tell us that they heard Gods voice speaking to them in their own
language. Can a spirit speak a language while being an immaterial
something? If God is not material, what pleasure would He get out of
material beings and the material universe? What is the basis of spirit?
Is the spirit independent of material?
Actually, who is that Mystery God? We should take time and study what
has and is being taught to us. Study the word and examine it, and if it
be the Truth, lay hold to it. To teach people that God is a Mystery God
is to teach them that God is unknown. There is no truth in such teaching.
Can one teach that which he himself does not know?
If one teaches a thing that he himself does not know, he can be
charged with lying to the people. The word “mystery,” according to the
English dictionaries, is something that has not been or cannot be -
something beyond human comprehension. The unintelligent, or rather ones
without divine knowledge, seem to delight themselves in representing the
God as something mysterious Unknown.
Such teaching (a mystery God) that God is a mystery makes the
prophets’ teachings of God all false. There should be a law made and
enforced upon such teachers until they have been removed from the public.
According to Allah, the origin of such teachings as a Mystery God is
from the devils! It was taught to them by their father, Yakub, 6,000
years ago. They know today that God is not a mystery but will not teach
it. He (devil), the god of evil, was made to rule the nations of earth
for 6,000 years, and naturally he would not teach obedience to a God
other than himself.
So, a knowledge of the true God of Righteousness was not represented
by the devils. The true God was not to be made manifest to the people
until the god of evil (devil) has finished or lived out his time, which
was allowed to deceive the nations (read These. 2:9-10, Rev. 20:308-10).
The shutting up and loosing of the devil mentioned in Rev. 20:7 could
refer to the time between the A.D. 570-1555 when they (John Hawkins)
deceived our fathers and brought them into slavery in America, which is
nearly 1,000 years that they and Christianity were bottled up in Europe
by the spread of Islam and Muhammad (may the peace of Allah be upon him)
and his successors.
Their being loose to deceive the nations of the earth would refer to
the time (A.D.1555 to 1955) which they were loose (free) to travel over
the earth and deceive the people. Now their freedom is being interfered
with, by the Order and Power of the God of Righteousness through the
Nation of Righteousness. For the past 6,000 years, the prophets have been
predicting the coming of God who would be just and righteous. This
righteous God would appear at the end of the world (the world of the
Today, the God of Truth and Righteousness is making Him self
manifest, that He is not anymore a mystery (unknown), but is known and
can be seen and heard the earth over. This teaching of a mystery God
enslaves the minds of the ignorant. My poor people are victims of every
robbery. They are so pitifully blind, deaf and dumb that it hurts, but I
am going to prove to them that I am with Allah (God) and that Allah is
with me, in spite of their ignorance of Allah and myself, whom He has
sent. For I am not self-sent and the world shall soon know who it is that
has sent me. Allah (God) loves us, the so-called Negroes (Tribe of
Shabazz,) so that He will give lives for our sake today. Fear not, you
are no more forsaken.
God is in person, and stop looking for a dead Jesus for help, but pray
to Him whom Jesus prophesied would come after Him. He who is alive and
not a spook. Do you hate me because I represent Allah, the Living God,
your Lord and my Lord? Can you, who believe in a mystery God (unknown),
trust your Mystery to bring you bread or to defend you against your open
enemies? If so, on what occasion did He help you?
If God is a mystery, you are lying to the world when you say that you
know Him. He wants to be known, it is His enemy (the devil) who does not
want God to be known to you and me. Do you refer to God as He, Him! These
pronouns refer to a man. Do you say that you want to be like Him. Surely,
you don’t want to be a spirit without form, as spirits have no material
form. Your God and my God is a material Being-the Supreme of Beings.
