Jesus was a Muslim because he was all about "social justice"

Islam, the religion of the professors:

College professor: ‘Jesus was a Muslim’-Campus Reform

The head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa recently argued that Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity, was in fact, a Muslim.

“‘Was Jesus a Muslim?” asks Prof. Robert F. Shedinger in the beginning of a book he published this year entitled Was Jesus a Muslim? ” I will answer with a very qualified yes.”

One could get the impression  the only qualification to be a professor these days is a crack pipe. Or “high cheekbones”….

In a recent interview Shedinger also defended his controversial thesis explaining that a Muslim undergraduate student had sent him on academic odyssey that culminated with him asking himself “Was Jesus a Muslim?”

“Even as a Christian I have to answer yes to that,” said Shedinger, who is the head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa.

Shedinger also argued that Islam is a better fit for Jesus since it is not a religion but a “social justice movement.” 

“I had to rethink what Islam is… I came to the conclusion that it was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim,” he said.

A few dollars from Sowdi Barbaria might have helped him to reach that ‘conclusion’.

The vast majority of scholars, historians, Muslims, and Christians date the birth of Islam to 622 ADE when the Prophet Muhammad claimed to have received visions that were eventually compiled into the Koran. Jesus, on the other hand, is believed to have existed more than 600 years earlier, at around 0 BCE.

A spokesman for Luther College, a small liberal arts school affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, told Campus Reform on Wednesday that the administration stands fully behind Shedinger’s scholarship.

“The administration is very very comfortable with the proposal, with the book, and with what his statements about this situation are,”  said Jerry Johnson, the school’s Director of Public Information. ”[T]he ground he is breaking with this book is not anything exactly earthshaking.”

Johnson added that Shedinger’s thesis had not stirred up on any controversy or opposition on campus where “the members or our religion department are very respecting and have great respect for each other’s work.”

Campus Reform was unable to contact Prof. Shedinger in time for publication.

  1. If Jesus was a muzelman, and if the Mohammed worshippers would recognise that, then that would mean that the group of five-times-a-day bend-overs believe that Jesus is the son of God, Hallelujah!

    On the other hand, if Shedinger would imply that Jesus would have been a moslem, (if the islam was already invented back then) then that would be a terrible insult. It would be like killing Jesus all over again. I am not sure what is a greater insult: nailing somebody to a wooden cross, or telling about him the he is in favour of mistreating women and fucking girls against their will from nine years on.

    It is more human to slam rusty old nails in somebody’s hand and feet than telling that the person has no heart! Telling lies about Jesus is cruel. And it is stupid because it is well documented what Jesus said, and there has never been a good word for the islam nor for that stinking dirty rotten scoundrel the call the holy prophet!

  3. Hmm, is this the same Jesus who is called Y’shua because he’s a Jew and was born in now Judenrein Bethlehem?

    Is it the Jesus who came, as you say 600 years before Islam?

    Is it the same Jesus who wasn’t a Christian and said: (my words in parenthesis)

    17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill (fill with meaning)18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. (and as the Torah is eternal, it doesn’t end when all that is written is fulfilled on earth) 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does AND teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Mathew 5:17-19

    AND teaches them…..so all churches and schools are failing – did I mention Jesus is Jewish????

  4. Isa ist the son of Marry (The Cow 2:253)
    Jesus is the son of God (John 1, 49)

    Isa is a prothet (Q. 5:75)
    Jesus is the Lord of the prophets (Matthew 22, 45, Luke 2, 11, Philippians 2:5-11)

    Isa is a creation (Q. 3:59)
    Jesus is the creator (John 1, 3)

    Isa had not taste the death, because God has taken him into heaven (Q. Women 4:157 “not crucified”)
    Jesus tasted the death for all of us (Hebrew 2, 9)

  5. Islam, replacement theology:

    “The word Christian is not a valid word, for there is no religion of Christianity according to Islam”.

    ‘Isa (Jesus) of the Qur’an is a product of fable, imagination and ignorance. When Muslims venerate this ‘Isa, they have someone different in mind from the Yeshua or Jesus of the Bible and of history. The ‘Isa of the Qur’an is based on no recognized form of historical evidence, but on fables current in seventh century Arabia.

    For most faithful Muslims ‘Isa is the only Jesus they know. But if one accepts this Muslim ‘Jesus’, then one also accepts the Qur’an: one accepts Islam. Belief in this ‘Isa is won at the cost of the libel that Jews and Christians have corrupted their scriptures, a charge that is without historical support. Belief in this ‘Isa implies that much of Christian and Jewish history is in fact Islamic history.

    The Jesus of the gospels is the base upon which Christianity developed. By Islamicizing him, and making of him a Muslim prophet who preached the Qur’an, Islam destroys Christianity and takes over all its history. It does the same to Judaism.

    In the end times as described by Muhammad, ‘Isa becomes a warrior who will return with his sword and lance. He will destroy the Christian religion and make Islam the only religion in all the world. Finally at the last judgement he will condemn Christians to hell for believing in the crucifixion and the incarnation.

    This final act of the Muslim ‘Isa reflects Islam’s apologetic strategy in relation to Christianity, which is to deny the Yeshua of history, and replace him with a facsimile of Muhammad, so that nothing remains but Islam.

    “The Muslim supersessionist current claims that the whole biblical history of Israel and Christianity is Islamic history, that all the Prophets, Kings of Israel and Judea, and Jesus were Muslims. That the People of the Book should dare to challenge this statement is intolerable arrogance for an Islamic theologian. Jews and Christians are thus deprived of their Holy Scriptures and of their salvific value.”

  6. Muslim are all about social justice? Funniest thing I have heard all day. That must be the reason they treat each other like shit all the time. If they are not trying to screw each other over, they try to murder each other, not the normally defined idea of social justice.

    Aside from the main point that kate b. made that Jesus was dead 600 years before a sociopath came up with the idea of his murderous cult, we know as Islam. Jesus philosophies are worlds apart compared to Muhammad the Warrior who was more interested in theft, rape and murder.
