Why Did God Send A messenger Now?
As stated in 3:81, and in Appendix 2, God has sent a messenger to consolidate the messages delivered by all the prophets, purify them, and unify them into one religion: Submission. The timing is certainly ripe for fulfillment of this important prophecy, for the following reasons:
- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have been corrupted beyond recognition.
- All God's messages have been delivered; the Quran is the Final Testament.
- More than 93% of the human beings destined to live in this world are yet to come. As illustrated in the Introduction, the people who have lived on this earth since Adam are only one-fifteenth of the total projected human population.
The best illustration of today's corrupted Judaism can be found in the books of a famous Rabbi; Harold S. Kushner. In his best seller WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE, Avon Books, 1981, Rabbi Kushner states the following:
..., we would be advised to take this world as seriously as we
can, in case it turns out to be the only one we will ever have, and
to look for meaning and justice here. (P. 29)
Bad things do happen to good people in this world, but it is not God who wills it. God would like people to get what they deserve, but He cannot always arrange it. (P. 42)
God does not reach down to interrupt the workings of laws of nature to protect the righteous from harm. This is a second area of our world which causes bad things to happen to good people, and God does not cause it and cannot stop it. (P. 58)
God can't do everything, but He can do some important things. (P. 113)
We can't ask Him to make us immune to disease, because He can't do that. (P. 125)
I recognize His limitations. He is limited in what He can do by law of nature, and by the evolution of human nature and human moral freedom. (P. 134)
If Jesus came back to life today, the Christians would crucify him. Outstanding Christian scholars have reached solid conclusions that today's Christianity has nothing to do with Jesus, and that its doctrine was mortally distorted at the infamous Nicene Conferences (325 A.D.). See THE MYTH OF GOD INCARNATE, Westminster Press, Philadelphia, 1977.
If Muhammad came back to this world, the "Muslims" would stone him to death. The religion they follow today has nothing to do with the Islam preached by Abraham and Muhammad. Everything the "Muslims" do is wrong: the First Pillar (Shahaadah), the call to Salat prayer (Azan), the ablution (Wudu), the daily Salat prayers, the Zakat charity, Hajj,and all other practices of Islam (see Appendices 2, 13, & 15).
