Some people say Gods law is fluid and not rigid.Religion undergoes reforms through out the ages.
The way I see it, Moses makes the law, Jesus breaks the law and Muhammad makes the law to fit somewhere in between Moses'and Jesus methods.
Take the law of the fornicator as a case study. According to Moses' Law the fornicator is to be stones to death.This law contradicts the law of retribution.According to the law of retribution a man can only be killed if he has killed someone.Therefore it would be injustice if the retribution law is broken by killing someone who have not killed anyone and whose only sin is to fornicate.
Because of this injustice Jesus seek to break the unjust laws of Moses. Mary Madelene was forgiven without any punishment whatsoever. Simmilarly other sinners, thieves murderers were also forgiven without any punishment. The followers of Moses could not believe that a man of God such as Jesus would be seen with prostitutes and thieves and he also breaks Gods laws.
But Jesus came to preach the meaning and way of Love. The way of Love was self purification and being compationate. But unfotunately love alone does not solve the problems of the world. People still need laws to have order in this world. So Jesus predicted another prophet with laws to establish Gods government,(Refer the verses below)
1) John 14:16 "And i will pray the Father,and He will give you another "Comforter",that he may abide with you forever."
2) John 16:7 "Nevertheles I tell you the truth.it is expedient for you that I go away, for if I go not away,the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart. I will send him unto you.
3) John 16:8
And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
5) John 16:10
of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more.
(Note:the phrase "you see me no more" is proof that there is no second coming of Christ)
6) John 16:11
of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
7) John 16:12
I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
8) John 16:13
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
(Note:Jesus refers "He" to "The Comforter" a man who is also the Spirit of Truth or that he receives the truth from God via the Spirit of Truth.But this truth got lost in translation where even the original name of the Comforter in Aramic was translated. Only the Gospel of Banabas retained the original name, Ehkmad in Aramic.)
Understanding the lack of laws in the Gospel, the Christians had to ballance their religion with laws.Some semblance of laws were then included in the Christian religion by incorporating the old testament Bible into their religion.
The incorporation of war and violence as acceptable to Christians is evident in the Old Testament Bibble on the verses that encourages war to settle problems. These laws however contradict Jesus teachings of Love and non violence.
The way of Mohammad is the continuation of Jesus' mission to come out with laws that are more compasionate and set up a government. Refer Gospel John 14:16,16:7/8/9/10/11/12/13 as detailed above.
So the law for fornication was revised to 100 strokes which can be interpreted as very compationate when compares to the death sentence.
War was abhored but not totally banned.
Alcohol was abhored upon but not totally banned as there are medicinal benefits in alcohol.Similarly gambling,slavery and money lending with exhobitant interests/usury wore banned and made into law to protect people from abuse and misuse.The way of Muhammad was a revolusion at that time in terms of economics, anti slavery and classless sytem, morals and philosophy.
This is my version of the history of religion and truth. May Allah guide us all and help us implement Gods government as prophet Mohammad had done before but was destroyed by Satan disguised as people in authority.Satans government is prolifirating in the form of greed based Capitalism and false paper money(Kafirnomics). Most people are unaware of the kafirization of our minds and culture in such a way that everybody is motivated to be greedy.In this Kafirnomics proton is not acceptable. A Mercedeze is prefered although you can buy 5 protons for the cost of one Mercedeze.With this sort of thinking the rich exploits the poor to maximum profit,just to have the Mercedeze.
