Christianity and the First Commandment


Sami Zaatari




Christians often make the argument that the 10 commandments are missing from the Quran, which obviously shows that these Christians have a problem with this issue, and that they hold the 10 commandments to be very important.


The irony from all of this is that the Christians failed to look at themselves, as usual the Christians choose to attack others rather than study their own beliefs, for if one actually reads the Christian New Testament, one would read that the first Commandment is no longer the most important article of faith!


Can you imagine that? Christians are out there attacking Islam for supposedly lacking the 10 commandments when their own book disregards the very first commandment? Well it is time to educate some of these Christians, and here is what their very own Christian NT has to say:


And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain (1 Corinthians 15:14)

So according to Paul the most important article of faith for a Christian is the resurrection of Christ, and that if this event never happened then the Christian faith is useless! Obviously this means that this article of faith now overrides and overtakes the very first commandment revealed by God to the Israelites, which is that thou shall have no other gods.


So whenever a Christian comes and talks about the 10 commandments, ask him which is more important to him, the first commandment or 1 Corinthians 15:14. Which comes first, which is more important, if he is honest he will be forced to say the resurrection, and there you have it folks, the resurrection overtakes the first commandment.


And Allah Knows Best!
