How much better is it to get wisdom than gold!
and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! Proverbs 16:16
Who is a LIAR but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
He is ANTICHRIST,
that denieth the Father and the Son.
(The Quaranic Obligation Of Muslims To Lie To Infidels)
(excerpt taken from 'Middle East Forum' Oct, 2008):
According to sharia, in certain situations, deception – also known as 'taqiyya', based on Quranic terminology, –
is not only permitted but sometimes obligatory......
According to the authoritative Arabic text, Al-Taqiyya Fi Al-Islam: "Taqiyya [deception] is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it. We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream...
Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era." The primary Quranic verse sanctioning deception with respect to non-Muslims states: "Let believers not take for friends and allies infidels instead of believers. Whoever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah – unless you but guard yourselves against them, taking precautions." (Quran 3:28; see also 2:173; 2:185; 4:29; 22:78; 40:28.)
Al-Tabari's (838-923 AD) Tafsir, or Quranic exegeses, is essentially a standard reference in the entire Muslim world. Regarding 3:28, he wrote: "If you [Muslims] are under their [infidels'] authority, fearing for yourselves, behave loyally to them, with your tongue, while harbouring inner animosity for them... Allah has forbidden believers from being friendly or on intimate terms with the infidels in place of believers – except when infidels are above them [in authority]. In such a scenario, let them act friendly towards them."
Regarding 3:28, the Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir (1301-1373) wrote: "Whoever at any time or place fears their [infidels'] evil, may protect himself through outward show."
As proof of this, he quotes Muhammad's companions. Abu Darda said: "Let us smile to the face of some people while our hearts curse them."
Al-Hassan said: "Doing taqiyya is acceptable till the day of judgment [in perpetuity]."
Other prominent ulema, such as al- Qurtubi , al-Razi, and al-Arabi have extended taqiyya to cover deeds. Muslims can behave like infidels – from bowing down and worshipping idols and crosses to even exposing fellow Muslims' "weak spots" to the infidel enemy – anything short of actually killing a fellow Muslim.
War is deceit:
None of this should be surprising considering that Muhammad himself, whose example as the "most perfect human" is to be tenaciously followed, took an expedient view on the issue of deception. For instance, Muhammad permitted deceit in three situations: to reconcile two or more quarreling parties; husband to wife and vice-versa; and in war (See Sahih Muslim B32N6303, deemed an "authentic" hadith).

CONVERSELY, THIS IS HOW CHRIST SUMMED UP HIS MISSION ON EARTH:
TO THIS END WAS I BORN,
AND FOR THIS CAUSE CAME I INTO THE WORLD,
THAT I SHOULD BEAR WITNESS UNTO THE TRUTH.
EVERY ONE THAT IS OF THE TRUTH HEARETH MY VOICE.
AND THIS IS HOW YHWH IDENTIFIES HIS PEOPLE:
....SURELY THEY ARE MY PEOPLE,
CHILDREN THAT WILL NOT LIE.....
RE: THE DEITY OF CHRIST:
IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS THE BIBLE STATES THAT GOD (ELOHIM) CREATED ADAM.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT 'ELOHIM' IS A PLURAL NOUN.
YHWH WAS/IS A MEMBER OF THE ELOHIM THAT CREATED HUMANKIND.
CHRIST, ALSO A MEMBER OF THE ELOHIM, WAS WITH HIM IN THE BEGINNING OF OUR CREATION.
WHEN EVE WAS SEDUCED INTO CONTRACTING WITH SATAN
TO ENTER THE GAME (aka KARMIC) WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE,
MOST OF THE ELOHIM REJECTED HUMANITY.
YHWH DID NOT, NOR DID HIS SON.
BOTH ARE GOD MEANING BOTH ARE ELOHIM.
BOTH ARE UNITED (ONE) IN MISSION.
TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO CHRIST CAME TO THIS EARTH
ON A SUICIDE MISSION TO SAVE HUMANITY.
HE WILL RETURN AS PROMISED.
HE WILL CRUSH THOSE THAT HAVE DECEIVED, ABUSED AND CORRUPTED HUMANKIND.
FOR HUMANITY THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE NOR HOPE....
