Why the name change?


The name of this bulletin is now SUBMISSION PERSPECTIVE instead of MUSLIM PERSPECTIVE.

This marks the advent of momentous changes and ushers in a new era of unification. Henceforth, all believers who devote their worship to the One True God ALONE will join forces under the banner of “One True Religion” (Quran 2:62; 3:19, 85, 113; 5:69).

This is not simply a new bright idea of a human being or a collection of humans; this is a divine plan destined for inevitable enforcement – God will render the hearts of all believers receptive. The Most Merciful has sent His Messenger of the Covenant now to deliver God’s message of unification and purification (Malachi 3:1, Quran 3:81).

I am sending My messenger to prepare the way before me; the Messenger of the Covenant. But who will endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears. For he is like the refiners fire, or like the fuller’s lye. He will sit refining and purifying. [Malachi 3:1-8]
God took a covenant from the prophets: “I will give you the Scripture and wisdom, then a messenger will come after you confirming your message. You shall believe in him and support him.…” [Quran 3:81]

One of the most important items on the unification agenda is the name of God’s people; the unified believers. The words “Muslim” and “Islam” are NOT names; they are Arabic words meaning “Submitter” and “Submission,” respectively. When Noah, Abraham, Solomon, and even the jinns talked about “Islam” and “Muslim” they did not speak in Arabic; they used their own languages. Please read these verses: 2:131; 7:126; 10:72; 22:78; 27:31, 42; 28:53; 72:14. When Jesus’ disciples stated that they were “Muslims,” they did not say it Arabic (3:52). A Christian Arab is called “Nusraany” in Arabic. Yet, we do not use this Arabic word when we speak English. It has been Satan’s plan to transform these “descriptions” into “names” then to give “Islam” and the “Muslims” a bad name. We have now mobilized to pull the rug from under Satan’s feet.

The truth prevails, even between the lines of false doctrine. The Nicene Doctrine (circa 300 AD) has attempted to confound the truth about Jesus Christ and his message, but the truth still prevails:

The Lord our God is one God! You shall worship the Lord your God with all your heart,with all your soul, with all your mind,  and with all your strength. [Mark 12:29]

The truth still prevails throughout the four canonized Gospels. John 20:17 still proclaims clearly that Jesus was not God, nor son of God, nor a third of a trinity.

Jesus then said, “Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God!’ [John 20:17]

I am a Submitter to GOD

Enlightened Christian scholars, such as (1) Don Cupitt, University Lecturer in Divinity and Dean of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, (2) Michael Goulder, Staff Tutor in Theology at Birmingham University, (3) John Hick, Professor of Theology at Birmingham University, (4) Leslie Houlden, Principal of Ripon College, Cuddesdon, UK, (5) Dennis Nineham, Warden of Keble College, Oxord,

(6) Maurice Wiles, Professor of Divinity and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford, and Chairman of the Church of England’s Doctrine Commission, and (7) Frances Young, Lecturer in New Testament Studies, Birmingham University, have reached the truth by scrutinizing the Christian Scriptures as they exist today.

After many years of careful study, these outstanding scholars have concluded that “Jesus was (as he is presented in Acts 2:21) ‘a man approved by God’ for a special role within the divine purpose…” (see THE MYTH OF GOD INCARNATE, Westminster Press, Philadelphia, 1977).

Invariably, those who idolize Jesus against his will rely on round- about, indirect statements that must be remotely tied to a far-fetched conclusion. In my frequent encounters with idol-worshipers, be they Muslim or Christian, I ask them to show me one, just one, direct verse in the Gospels stating that Jesus was God, or a Quranic Statement that the name of Muhammad must be mentioned alongside God’s name, but they haven’t come up with one yet. On the other hand, the Gospels, and the Quran, are replete with straightforward verses stating the truth (see Matthew 7:21-23, 27:46; Mark 10:17-18, 15:34; John 11:41-42; Quran 3:18, 39:44-45, 47:19).

The truth invariably peeks through the falsehood, then prevails (Quran 17:81). When early Mohamedans attempted to tamper with the Quran by adding the false verses 9:128-129, God’s law of perfect preservation of the Quran necessitated incontrovertible exposure of such an attempt (see Appendix 24 in my new translation of the Quran).
