Why this Intense Hatred for St Paul by Muslims? Islam has no clue how to handle this person whom we call St Paul. Paul is the author of fourteen(14) epistles in the New Testament. Generally, Muslims are taught by their leaders that Christianity is a product of Paul. Most Muslims do not know why they hate Paul. They just say this because one of their leaders said so. Surely Paul has done something which demolishes Islam. It makes sense to investigate this question.
The Big WHY
Clearly, it is some of Paul’s writings that bother the Muslims. Here is one quote from the New Testament that clearly identifies Islam without naming it.
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently, some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!Gal 1:6-9
The above statement from Paul cuts down every claim of Islam with ONE-SHOT. Six Hundred years before Muhammad came up with his perverted gospel(Islam), Paul knew this would happen. Islam’s claim lies in the myth that Gabriel came and gave this message to Muhammad. Paul effectively pronounced the curse of God upon Muhammad Six centuries before even the event occurred. That shut the doors on Islam forever.
The dilemma for Muslims starts with the fact that the Christian Scriptures do not line up with Islamic thoughts. It rather opposes Islam altogether. As St Paul was the writer of more than half of the New Testament scriptures, they would rather target him to get over with their embarrassment. They somehow assume that Paul corrupted the Christian scriptures and therefore, it does not line up with the Qurán. Therefore, Muslims call today’s Christians Pauline Christians to differentiate from the Christian disciples of Jesus. But is that so?
There are many more other statements by Paul which overrides the lies of Muhammad. However, the three verses from Galatians has been the biggest destroyer of Islam. No sane Christian will ever positively consider Islam because the Christian thought is opposed to the Islamic teachings.
The Lies propagated by Islam cannot stand before the Tsunami of Paul’s Writings. In the next article of this series, we shall discuss some of those teachings of St Paul which goes diametrically against the Islamic Doctrine and why Muslims think that Paul taught a different Christianity. What is that in Paul’s writings that is so offensive to Islam?
