Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Have you read your own bible?

Sorry for the late reply. I was traveling and did not have time to respond.

There is no Gospel of Barnabas in the Bible, only Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and all affirm the divinity of Jesus Christ. Wikepedia states that it (Barnabas) dates to the late sixteenth century. I had never heard of it until you mentioned it and since it's origin is after Islam's sixth century A.D. debut, it's origins are suspicious (a form of taqiyya??). The four Gospels in the Bible date to the first century A.D. (Anno Domini-"in the Year of our Lord").

Please read the Gospels, especially the Gospel of John. In John's Gospel, Jesus states that He is "One with the Father" and "You have seen me, you have seen the Father". He supported His divinity with countless miracles and healing.

Jesus performed good deeds in healing, driving out demons, and bringing the dead to life. He killed no one or robbed no one. Muhammad did both. Thou shall not kill and Thou shall not steal are two of the Ten Commandments given to Moses by God.
