Discovery will collapse Christianity

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm not here to defend this website (not really familiar with it) or the validity of its claims but the subject matter intrigues me as a Christian.

IF the claims turn out to be true, would it impact your beliefs at all? If its was proven 100%, would it 'collapse Christianity'?

IRAN: DISCOVERY WILL COLLAPSE CHRISTIANITY

Says Turkish 'Bible' has Barnabas forecasting Muhammad's coming


Iran's Basij Press is claiming that a version of the Gospel of Barnabas, found in 2000, will prove that Islam is the final and righteous religion and the revelation will cause the collapse worldwide of Christianity

Turkey confiscated a leather-bound text, written on animal hide, in an anti-smuggling operation in 2000. Turkish authorities believe the text could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus' apostles and an associate of the apostle Paul.

This version of the Barnabas Gospel was written in the 5th or 6th century and it predicted the coming of the Prophet Mohammad and the religion of Islam, the Basij Press claims.

The Christian world, it says, denies the existence of such a gospel.

However, religious scholars have said another version of the Barnabas Gospel, discovered a century ago, was written less than 500 years ago, which would post-date Mohammad.

In Chapter 41 of the Barnabas Gospel, Basij claims, is this statement: "God has hidden himself as Archangel Michael ran them (Adam and Eve) out of heaven, (and) when Adam turned, he noticed that at top of the gateway to heaven, it was written ‘La elah ela Allah, Mohamad rasool Allah,'" meaning Allah is the only God and Mohammad his prophet.

The Turkish army has taken possession of the Barnabas Gospel because the "Zionists" and the governments of the West are trying to suppress its contents, Basij Press claims.

According to the Barnabas Gospel in Turkey's hands, Basij Press says, Jesus was never crucified and that not only is He not the son of God, but that He himself predicted the coming of the Prophet Mohammad. The book even predicts the coming of the last Islamic messiah, the report says.

"The discovery of the original Barnabas Bible will now undermine the Christian Church and its authority and will revolutionize the religion in the world," the Basij report says. "The most significant fact, though, is that this Bible has predicted the coming of Prophet Mohammad and in itself has verified the religion of Islam, and this alone will unbalance the powers of the world and create instability in the Christian world."

The Basij report concludes that the discovery is so immense that it will affect the world's politics and that the world powers are aware of the coming effects of this event.

Turkey plans to put the Bible on public display. Though Turkish authorities believe this could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, others believe it only goes back to the 16th century and is a fake because it would have been written centuries after Mohammad's life.

The Vatican has requested to see the scripture but it is unknown if Turkey has provided it access to the text..

I stand corrected. Sometimes I forget that living across the street from a masjid does not make me an expert on Islam, lol.


Quoting SlingsAndThings:

Actually In a sense we do. We believe Jesus peace be upon him will return at the end of days to defeat the false messiah (like the anti-Christ).



Quoting o0orange0o:

I could be wrong, but I don't think they do.






Quoting 12hellokitty:

 




So are you saying Islam doesn't call Jesus messiah? 




Quoting o0orange0o:

Islam believes Jesus was a prophet, one of many.





Quoting 12hellokitty:




 





Quoting muslimahpj:










Quoting FromAtoZ:





That is interesting.





It doesn't have an impact of my beliefs.  





I don't know that I see this ever being authenticated, as a fact, to be as some believe it to be.





But, I have been wrong before.





Even if it were to be authenticated, there will still be those who deny it. I dont think it will change the minds of many if it is proven to them to be 100% authentic.





People will believe what they want they want to believe, no matter what proof or evidence is placed in front of them to show them otherwise. (this is on everything, not just speaking on this topic)





The article states





"The book even predicts the coming of the last Islamic messiah, the report says."





Who is this referencing? I thought Muhammad was called a messenger and that the Quran acknowledges Jesus as messiah?





So it looks like if it's proven to be true or false it would discredit Islam?





 





Something tells me Muslims are not going to be to welcoming to this discovery....
