The Begotten Son of God


By Sami Zaatari




One rather strange and insulting verse we find in the Bible is that of John 3:16, which reads:


16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 


So as you can see, the verse says that God gave his begotten son, this is indeed strange, since begetting children is not an act done by God, because the word beget/begotten infers that this came about through sexual intercourse.


The word begotten that is used here is called monogenes {mon-og-en-ace'} in the Greek language. The basic definition of this word refers to daughters and sons in relation to their parents through sexual intercourse!


So basically when John 3:16 calls Jesus the only begotten son of God it actually means that God had sex and hence Jesus was begotten!


Lest a Christian claim I am twisting things, let us see the word 'monogenes' used again in the Bible, notice the context this time:


Hbr 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [son],


So notice the word begotten (monogenes) is used here referring to Abraham's son! So therefore as you can see, in context the word monogenes refers to a son of a father which is created through the sexual act between a man and a women. So there is no escaping the fact that word monogenes which means begotten refers to a son or daughter which is produced through sexual intercourse, as you saw in Hebrews 11:17 it says that Abraham gave his only BEGOTTEN son referring to Ishmael, hence this word begotten refers to children produced through a sexual act. So my question is this, does the God of John 3:16 have sex?!


This verse is an insult to God, and Christians must either get rid of this blasphemous verse, or they should change the wording, and Christians should have no problem in changing the wording since many words and whole chapters in the Bible have been altered, changed, or even deleted! So Christians should have no problem in making a simple word change, this will be something normal for the Bible!


And I end this article with a lovely verse from the Quran which refutes such insults by the Bible:


YUSUFALI: He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;


And indeed Allah Knows Best!
