Chapter 1: Judge Whether This Is the Right Path
In a world where veils of human ignorance are being removed one by one and day by day and a new realm of dazzling truth is emerging to mankind; in an epoch when the light of science guides us ever closer to intellectual solidarity, providing us with evidence of the Oneness of the Creator,
thus revealing to us a world full of wonders; in a world where the dark days of colonialism have come to a destined end, leaving colonialists with an eternal stain of disgrace in human history and where the freedom-fighters and liberated people are not only no longer ready to submit themselves to colonialist exploitations, but also engaged in abolishing their plundering expeditions; in such a context, Church has belatedly begun to cherish the resumption of colonial activities.
Offering the concept of the Trinity, it intends to lead people back into medieval obscurantism, so that once again the tragedy of the Spanish Inquisition may be repeated. In Andalusia (Spain), on one night thousands of innocent God-fearing Muslims were beheaded. Neither women nor children were spared and their sacred shrines were razed to the ground.
Now, after years of hypocrisy, the Church has started again to reveal its true nature to the Muslim World. Church authorities, which have hidden themselves behind the scenes, have devised ominous and destructive plans against Islam and Muslims.
According to the church, all of African and Asian nations to convert to Christianity! Every night, they dream of the departure of Islam from these countries to be replaced by his decadent concept of the Trinity. They see that it will not be long before the God-fearing people of the Asian and African countries will accept the son, mother and other relatives of God! They actually imagine that God is the head of such a large family! But in reality, for more than twenty centuries, Christianity has failed to account for the Trinity sue, which is in fact an illusory and pagan belief and yet the cornerstone of St. Paul's (not Jesus') religion.
The Church still dreams of uprooting Islam and Muslims id consolidating in its place the perverted and deviant Christianity.
Supporters of the Trinity Concept
Some supporters of the Trinity concept draw the following triangle in order to prove their aims. They say: "Even though a triangle has three sides, it is still a union just as the Trinity a union". Even a child can perceive the baseless ness of such claim, for a triangle is composed of three sides, each independent of the other. If each side were to become exactly like the others, a triangle would no longer exist; thus this "triangle Theory" is erroneous.
This entity is composed of three sides, known collectively as a "triangle", and no sane person would consider it a real union.
In principle, to compare God, who is devoid of form, to a triangle (which has a definite structure) is wrong. Structure or composition is peculiar to creation and the pure essence of God can in no way be imagined in such terms. God; in this case, would only mean a mere creature, depending upon another power to control His existence.
At the same time, these Trinity supporters claim that just as water takes up various forms such as liquid, gas or solid state, it is not wrong to think that God also change forms, becoming Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. They ignore the fact that water itself is made up of various composition, which in different situations and under certain conditions, take on different forms.
This example is not compatible with the concept of God's uniqueness. Moreover, the inevitable result of such a statement and similitude is that the sacred presence of God will also be affected through change or other courses of events.
The notion of the Trinity is so groundless that whenever one wishes to discuss the issue with a Christian, the only answer he receives is that this subject is one of the great secret of the Church! No one, they say, can understand the truth behind it, not even those greater than ourselves.
Indeed it is very strange that such an issue, which should be more commonly understood and clear-cut than everything else, has reached a point where the use of mathematical and geometrical shapes must be resorted. Even then, when no concrete conclusion is reached, the matter is laid to rest through the use of deceptively sophisticated reasoning.
Is God such an entity that is divisible and at the same time a changeable material phenomenon, and yet is to be worshipped blindly? What kind of faith is it that its most basic and most essential issues are incapable of being explained? It has failed to clarify how the three gods are incorporated and yet have managed to preserve their divisibility as well as their unity.
Is it correct to believe in these unfounded and fictitious claims just because they have been written in the Four Gospels, or should one take these statements as a valid proof to the invalidity of the existing Gospels? For a true book of revelation would never make such assertions. By making such assertions concerning the Trinity issue, Christianity has in fact shown its true self. This faith has been founded upon misunderstanding and ignorance and continues to undergo alterations and subversions in the hands of ignorant persons.
One should feel deep regret that these people, misguided to such an extent in mind and religion, should tell Muslims to renounce the truth substantiated even by science! They expect Muslims to blindly follow them, urging people to conceive of partners for God, divide Him into parts and fill their hearts with love of the Son of God! How can a Muslim who believes that every living being echoes the words "God is but One and there is no partner unto Him" possibly accept this?
They promulgate their false notions by various means now in the form of publications including leaflets, again in the form of fictitious books full of myths and superstitions, and recently through radio broadcasts once a week in the guise of educational and moral programs.
Let us applaud you benefactors of humanity who have closed your eyes to your voluminous dark record in Africa, shed crocodile tears for these ignorant people and act under a religious mask in order to perform your ominous colonialist designs.
We know that these "gifts" are brought to Muslim countries by "democratic" and "freedom-seeking" western governments, for it is only the Muslim countries that are filled with sins and sinners who await the grace and mercy of their Lord, Jesus Christ!
We have had enough of your ignorance! Come to your senses, O Muslim brothers! Stop imagining that the dazzling technological progress of Europe has been due to the religion of Trinity. Rather, as long as people followed these childish ideas, they always were in the dark abyss of ignorance. But as soon as they tore away from the intricate web woven by the Church and relied instead upon the light of Islamic knowledge, they were able to take big steps towards the benefit of mankind.
This is indeed a fact, which has been proved throughout history. Nevertheless, there is much to discuss regarding the notion of the Trinity and, God willing, in the following chapters, we shall help reveal many of the countless hidden existing truths.
We boldly request of Church officials and of the Vatican in particular, that if they are sincerely seeking the truth, they should prepare themselves for a scientific debate to be held in a calm, brotherly atmosphere. In this way, the Truth will uncover itself to all.
Chapter 2: A letter to the church
The silence of the magnificent court chamber was broken by the voice of the priest who began to read the verdict articulately His stately black robe with its long sleeves and the glint of his spectacles had so much attracted the audience that one would have thought that after Jesus, he was the second, undisputed "Son of God".
The old man, who stood complaisantly before the court panel, suddenly paled upon hearing the verdict. He turned immediately to face a statue of Jesus, which occupied a corner of the chamber, and kneeling before the statue, he begged to be forgiven of his sins.
His crime was so grave that nothing but gallows could atone for it. He had maintained that the earth rotated round the sun, thus denying the decision of the churchmen whom held that the earth was in a fixed position. Perhaps you have already recognized this man who was accused of heresy. He was none other than Galileo.1
The holy fathers stifled every voice of truth, which opposed the myths of the Holy Bible. Giordano Bruno was burnt at the stake in the main square of Campo de Fiori on February 19, 1600 AD, because of his denial of such concepts as the Incarnation and the Trinity. As the flames and a thick cloud of smoke billowed and faded into the sky, the Pope's minions sang religious hymns.2
Is it not disgraceful that Church officials should have committed such unforgivable crimes against knowledge and science? Yet they continue to hold their heads high before the progressive and culture-loving generations of the world, expressing their sympathies to humanity!
In a world where the gates to true knowledge are already open to man, where mankind becomes inebriated at the fountain of science enabling it to explore new and exciting realms of knowledge, is it not ridiculous that the Church still refuses to abandon its myths and illusions? Throughout history, hundreds of scientists and great thinkers of the world have revolted against the delusions of the Gospels. But the Christian clerics have remained unmoved and continue to impose these misconceptions one way or another on people.
If one wishes to become familiar with present Christian doctrines, he should carefully study the following four sections, for each section alone is sufficient to refute the present-day Gospels and Christianity. Thousands of people have until now written letters to the Church, requesting its response to the following four issues. However, no perfect response has yet been given, and it is much deplorable that the Christian missionaries are unable to cope with questions dealing with simple logic and reasoning posed by the uninformed youth.

Chapter 3: Whet is the Holy Bible?
The Old Testament and the New Testament The scope of the efforts of the holy fathers has progressed to the point where they have distributed Bibles, free of charges, in all countries and particularly among Muslim people and the young generation.
Here we are not concerned with how the holy fathers and Christian evangelists have been allowed to carry out their activities so freely. Nor are we concerned with how much was allocated to them by certain Western colonialist governments, or what authorities support their freedom of action.
These are subjects, which require lengthy discussion and will not be dealt with here. Here we shall merely examine several points concerning the Christian Holy scriptures. It is hoped that the holy fathers abstain from distributing the Bible among Muslims, so that we may not be forced to expose their true nature as well as their books.
The Bible comprises the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament includes the Torah (Hebrew for Law) and books of the prophets. The New Testament which opens with the words "The New Testament of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ", consists of 27 Sections: 4 Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and 21 epistles attributed to Paul the Apostle and others. With the "Acts of the Apostles" and "The Revelation of St. John" (Apocalypse), the New Testament contains a total of 27 parts.
The Old Testament
Spinoza, the famous Jewish philosopher, has written extensively on the Old Testament. A summary of some of his observations is as follows:
Everyone presumes that it was Moses who wrote the first five books of the Torah. The Pharisees3 place much emphasis on this presumption and consider anyone who opposes this belief a heretic. It was for this very reason that Ibn Azra4, who was to some extent free thinker and the first to discover this error, never dared to talk about the subject openly.
"But", Spinoza writes; "I have no fear of explaining this particular issue." He then relates some of the evidences given by Ibn Azra along with some of his own observations, which conclude that the original writer of the five books of Torah lived several centuries after the time of Moses.
He also investigates the remaining books of the Old Testament and refuses to accept that they are actually written by those whose names are attributed to them. Noting their inconsistencies, errors and con- tradictions, he considers them unjustifiable. Commentators of the Holy Scriptures, he says, have tried very hard to justify these obvious contradictions, 3-A Sect of Hebrew race, always in the Majority.
'Pharisee' means "Seclusion".
4-Ibrahim Ibn Azm, Astrologer, physician, mathematician and a Jewish religious scholar bore in 513 A.D. anity Dar Rahe Haq Board of Writers but are unaware that through such efforts, they have actually ridiculed the authors of the Old Testament.5 The New Testament
The Gospels and books, which have been attributed to Jesus and his disciples, are neither credible nor historically reliable, nor complete. Owing to historical events, additions and misapplications in the texts, the New Testament has not remained free from alteration. Also, the style and the phraseology of the New Testament clearly differ from those of the prophets.
Spinoza wrote that he believed that Paul's profound and lengthy arguments in his "Epistle to the Romans" were not founded upon divine revelation, but were merely based on the normal power of reasoning. Also, the style of the disciples and their way of using words evident in the books clearly argues against their coming from divine revelation or the Grace of God. Rather, they contain the personal logic and opinions of their writers.6
Moreover, there are various versions of the Gospels and other scriptures, which have been rejected by the Church. Basically, it is not certain whether these versions are the same as those traditionally accepted by the Church as "divine revelations."
Encyclopedia Britannica lists the names of tens of such Gospels and epistles.7 The writer of Exhumes has listed the scriptures that the ancient Christians attributed to Christ himself, his disciples, or other followers:
7 epistles to Jesus 8 epistles to Mary 11 "" Peter the Apostle 9"" John 2"" Andrew 2"" Matthew 2"" Philip the Apostle, 1 epistle to Bartholomen the Apostle. 5 epistles to Thomas the Apostle. 3"" Jacob the Apostle, 3"" Mathias 3"" Mark 2"" Barnabas 1 epistle to Theodos 15 epistles to Paul
5-Risalate-e-fil-lahut-uas-siyassah; p. 265-326 Printed in Egypt. 6-Risalate-e-fill-lahut-uas-siyassah; p. 330. 7- The introduction of the "Barnabas" Gospel; P.47, Persian language.
Having mentioned the features of these 74 epistles, the writer poses this question: How can one know if the Divine Scriptures are the same scriptures accepted by the Protestants?8
Is the Holy Bible a Divine and heavenly Book?
On the whole, the book, which at present is accepted by the Christians as a sacred work is a baseless fabrication. Evidence pointing to the fabrication of this book is abundant. The following examples would be mentioned:
1-There are contradictions between the Old Testament and the New Testament or among their epistles, a sample of which, apart from the one talked about previously, is given in the fifteenth chapter of this book.
2-The superstitions and ambiguities existing throughout the Holy Bible, such as attributing wine drinking to prophets, Jacob's wrestling with God, etc. 3-Holy Bible's shortcomings and imperfection from the viewpoint of divine teachings, etc., When we read it carefully, we find in its various chapters that God walks; God shows repentance; God's knowledge is limited, finite and so on.
4-Historical and non-historical discrepancies, an example of which you has already read in the second chapter of this book.
Certainly, evidences such as these convince any sane person that the Christian's present holy books have no foundation and cannot be divine. It is for these reasons that at the end of his argument, Felicien Chalet concludes:
"At any rate, these are man's creation and so it is impossible to consider them the Words of God."9
