Digresses: Martin Luther (10 November 1483 – 18 February 1546) was a German monk, priest, professor of theology and iconic figure of the Protestant Reformation. He kickstarted a revolution against the Roman Catholic Church, who at the time would raise large amounts of cash by allowing people to see relics, often unconfirmed pieces of history, such as Mary’s milk and the bones of disciples. He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. He confronted indulgence salesman Johann Tetzel with his Ninety-Five Theses, which he posted to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg in 1517. His refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor.Now, back to our post:
It was a landslide victory for Luther, resulting in a complete change in the process of certain church activities that continue to this day. The people who associated with Luther’s ideas became known as Protestants, which is a form of the word “protestor”, as the people protested against the Catholic church’s systems.
Back in 2000, Turkey confiscated a leather-bound text, written on animal hide, during an anti-smuggling initiative. Turkish authorities are of the opinion that the text could be the authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus’ apostles.
The Basij Press claims that this particular version of the Barnabas Gospel seems to have been written in the 5th or 6th century. It foretells the coming of the Prophet Mohammad and the religion of Islam. Catholics call it laughable!
The Turkish army has confiscated the Barnabas Gospel, BP says, because Zionists and Western governments want it kept away from the public eye. The book purports to predict the coming of the last Islamic messiah.Barnabas says in the Book that Jesus was never crucified and that not only is He not the son of God, but that He himself predicted the coming of the Prophet Mohammad. (That's an interesting take) The Basij paper proclaims that “...discovery of the original Barnabas Bible will now undermine the Christian Church and its authority ... 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.”
The report sees the discovery as so immense that it will impact world politics. I wonder. I can see it perhaps making a mark in the Middle East, but, everywhere else?
“The Iranian regime is committed to stamping out Christianity by any means necessary, whether that means executing Christian converts, burning Bibles or raiding underground churches,” according to Erick Stakelbeck, host of CBN’s “Stakelbeck on Terror” program. Stakelbeck keeps an eye on Iran, and muses that this "new Bible" is an attempt to discredit Christianity.
Grand Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani, in a recent statement, announced that since the Quran was the last holy book and provides the most complete religion to the world and Mohammad the last prophet as indicated in the Quran, there is no authority to abide by other books.
