    Iran: Discovery will collapse Christianity

    Thoughts?

    Turkey confiscated a leather-bound text, written on animal hide, in an anti-smuggling operation in 2000. Turkish authorities believe the text could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus’ apostles and an associate of the apostle Paul.

    This version of the Barnabas Gospel was written in the 5th or 6th century and it predicted the coming of the Prophet Mohammad and the religion of Islam, the Basij Press claims.
    In Chapter 41 of the Barnabas Gospel, Basij claims, is this statement: “God has hidden himself as Archangel Michael ran them (Adam and Eve) out of heaven, (and) when Adam turned, he noticed that at top of the gateway to heaven, it was written ‘La elah ela Allah, Mohamad rasool Allah,’” meaning Allah is the only God and Mohammad his prophet.
    “The discovery of the original Barnabas Bible will now undermine the Christian Church and its authority and will revolutionize the religion in the world,” the Basij report says. “The most significant fact, though, is that this Bible has predicted the coming of Prophet Mohammad and in itself has verified the religion of Islam, and this alone will unbalance the powers of the world and create instability in the Christian world.”

    You forgot to include this:

    On the inside of the back cover authorities found this inscription: Oh-wah, Ta-do, shy-am
    Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

    Sounds like all the discoveries that have been made that supposedly solidified the historical accuracy of Christianity.

    People seeing things they want to see and believing things they want to believe. Film at 11.

    I find it rather cute that the Iranians actually think they will "crush Christianity" with this. If they're that naive, I'm wondering if that makes their nuclear ambitions more or less possible, and therefore more or less worrisome. Hmm...

    They don't expect to crush Christianity. It's pure propaganda to further brainwash their own people.

    From the same article

    ...

    As reported recently,
    a former intelligence officer in the Revolutionary Guards revealed that tens of thousands of Bibles were confiscated and burned in Iran, under the order of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who said the Bible is not a holy book and its burning is morally acceptable.

    ...
    I won't hold my breath waiting for an apology and I won't be calling for the death of Ayatollah Ali Khamenie.

    Written by Barnabus himself 500 to 600 years after he last saw Jesus. I guess we're all Muslim now. Is there a helpful guide, an app maybe, to let me know which way Mecca is?
