Many people fail to realise that death due to apostasy is not something alien to Christianity, it is in fact, part and parcel of the Christian religion in itself. It is sad to see that many Christian missionaries and apologists fail to highlight the plight of Christian converts to Christianity. Recently, I attempted to have a discussion with Hazem Farraj, an Evangelical ‘ex-Muslim’. Sadly after reminding him that the Bible promotes the law of apostasy, he soon erupted with anger and blocked me. This is the message I sent to him:
Hazem Farraj, what is wrong with what the Shaykh has said, if he says what YHWH says?
“If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; [Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” – Deuteronomy 13:6-10.
Jesus never abandoned the law of apostasy, for YHWH himself as declared it eternal:
“All your righteous laws are eternal.” – Psalm 119:60.
I find your hypocrisy to be quite disturbing. If you love God, why are you denying His words in the Bible?
After posting this, I casually mentioned that many Christians still commit honour killings due to apostasy, for which he deleted me before I could publish this bit of information on his wall:
“Christian farmer Ishaq Aziz’s 17-year-old daughter Nirmeen went missing on Valentine’s Day, fueling speculation that she has converted and will reappear with a Muslim husband once she turns 18.Aziz, 47, and his family are preparing for that day. They have sold some farmland to buy firearms, and Aziz explained matter-of-factly that Nirmeen and her husband will be killed first — “it is a question of honor” — and then the guns will turn against the groom’s family.”But we will happily take her back if she comes back with her faith intact,” he said. “Even if she is pregnant, a cousin will marry her,” he said, wiping a tear with the sleeve of his dark blue galabiya robe.” – The Associated Press.
Christians thrive on ‘argumentum ad baculum’, an argument based on the fear of something. They pretend that Islam is some fearful faith, yet they are silent when their own followers do the same. Just another Christian missionary ashamed of the Bible!
