Islam on Jesus
Debate Rounds (3)
Muslims should not view Jesus as "Just a good prophet but not the son of God". This view is flawed and it is wrong.
I recognize not all Muslims interpret Jesus this way, they are excluded from this debate. It is to focus only on Muslims who view Jesus as a legitimate prophet but not the son of God.
First round acceptance
I accept. I hope to learn much from this debate.
HE WAS THE SON OF GOD
This is fairly self explanatory, one of the ways the Muslims could interpret Jesus would be to believe what he said and worship him as the son of God, but since they rejected that what are the other two options?
HE WAS A LUNATIC
If the first definition is denied then Jesus was a lunatic. He was a man who ran around telling people that he was the son of god, if this isn't true then he must be crazy. He cannot be worshiped as just great prophet, if he wasn't the son of God like he claimed to be then he is bat-bloody insane. Jesus would be no more of a worshipable prophet then the homeless guy down at the gas station who tell you the end is near.
HE WAS A LIAR
Maybe Jesus wasn't a lunatic-maybe he was just lying. If that's the case then he was the worst heretic this world has ever seen. He has led billions of people astray, in full knowledge of what he was doing. Why Muslims would think a guy who did this is a great prophet is unimaginable to me.
If Muslims deny the first options then they must assume one of the other two. There is no room for this "Oh he was a great prophet" business. If you deny that Jesus was God then he must have been a lunatic or a liar. The Muslims who interpret Jesus as a good prophet are wrong, and the truth lies in one of the three options.
Sources: King James Bible
John 8:58 - "Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.'"
John 10:30-33 - "I and the Father are one." 31 The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?" 33 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."
Muslims should acknowledge that Jesus claimed to be the son of God, and cannot be regarded in respectful light by the religion of Islam
My opponent has provided passages from a Christian bible. They prove nothing in regards to Islam.
Pro has not argued anything and failed the BOP. Vote Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro tried to prove something using the Christian Bible and straw-manned the view of Islam. Con points out (correctly) that they prove nothing in regards to Isam.
