Featured Koran verses read denying Jesus Son of God in Cathedral

    A passage from the Koran that denies one of the central tenets of the Christian faith was sung aloud at a cathedral service in Scotland.
    The passage from Surah 19, which specifically denies that Jesus was the Son of God and says He should not be worshipped, was sung during a Eucharist service at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow to mark the feast of the Epiphany.

    A video of the recital was posted on YouTube showing a girl singing the passage in a typical Islamic style. It narrates the Islamic account of the birth of Jesus, which includes the claim that Mary was “ashamed” after giving birth, and the infant Christ miraculously spoke from the cradle – something not found in Christian scripture.

    She then concludes by singing verse 35, which states in translation: “It befitteth not the Majesty of Allah that He should take unto Himself a son,” and then verse 36, which has the infant Jesus saying: “And lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. That is the right path.”

    The cathedral praised the reading in a Facebook post, calling it a “wonderful event”.

    However, retired Anglican bishop Michael Nazir-Ali strongly condemned it, saying it was especially inappropriate for the feast of the Epiphany, which celebrates the revelation of Christ as the Son of God.


    Christian Today quotes him as saying: “The authorities of the Scottish Episcopal Church should immediately repudiate this ill-advised invitation.”

    “Christians should know what their fellow citizens believe and this can include reading the Qur’an for themselves, whether in the original or in translation. This is not, however, the same thing as having it read in Church in the context of public worship,” he added.

    “It is particularly insensitive to have this passage read in Church on the Feast of the Epiphany when we celebrate not only Christ’s manifestation to the gentiles but also his baptism and the divine declaration, ‘you are my beloved son in whom I am well pleased’.”

    The Scottish Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which also includes the Church of England and America’s Episcopalian Church.

    The cathedral’s Facebook page also proudly publicises a press report on the provost’s Christmas sermon, in which he compared U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump to the biblical King Herod, who ordered the massacre of children.

    We are entering the last days. Christ Is coming soon.

    Revelation 18:4
    And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    I see the beast overcoming the saints slowly.. Not angry of what i see anymore, maybe unhappy that such things have to happen, but happy that the Lord is truly near, i just want everyone to see that Islam won't be overcome now, Islam has a purpose and that explains why it is being beautified by historians, politicians, mass media and most of the leading powers today.

    Revelation 13:7 "Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation,"

    I believe "the beast overcoming the saints" is becoming rapid as it has really gained speed in the last couple of years. Morality and obedience, both religous and secular, has decreased to unknown portions recently.

    Probably not. Another example of how islam is cloaked behind political correctness; and spreads its lies unnoticed.

    Wrong reason.

    The correct one is: they don't understand any Arabic! :ahah:

    I don't see the problem here, Allah = God = Yahweh, this is simply looking for a problem where one does not exist.

    Allah as depicted in the Koran is not God of the Bible. They specifically deny the second and third persons of the Holy Trinity. These verses quoted are direct refutation of the Christian concept of God.

    Allah is the same god in Christianity and Judaism. It's just a different name for the same thing.

    St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Glasgow shared a post.
    January 7 at 2:00am ·
    Last night's Epiphany celebration in St Mary's was a wonderful event. In the course of service there was an incredibly wide selection of music celebrating the arrival of the magi in Bethlehem. The congregation was also reminded during the service that it is not only Christians who give honour to Jesus. We were joined by friends from two local Muslim communities. Here's Madinah Javed sharing the Qur'anic version of the news that Jesus was to be born to Mary.


    I would say they knew what they were doing. False teaching entering the church. Muslim belief does not honor Jesus Christ of the Bible. If the leaders of the church did not know this then they are false shepherds for bringing false teachings into the church.

    Interesting. Well, it's not surprising for this day and age, and I mean that with the utmost prophetic insinuation. :cool:

    Part of the story.

    The rest is why someone (who DID understand Arabic) would read that antichrist drivel in a church. To promote islam and proudly proclaim islam's tenet that "God has no son" as gospel truth.

    I can call a cow "god" and say it's God because it's the same word. But that doesnt mean Christians worship a cow.

    Linguistics does not make theology. The God of the Koran is not the Holy Trinity of the Bible.
