No, The So-Called 'Gospel Of Barnabas' Will Not Destroy Christianity May 24, 2012
Just in case you thought you had to re-evaluate your faith in light of the discovery of "The Gospel Of Barnabas", let us reassure you.
The background: In 2000, anti-smuggling efforts on the Mediterranean led Turkish authorities to confiscate a leather-bound text, which is reportedly "The Gospel Of Barnabas".
We are told that the book foretells the rise of the Prophet Muhammed, as told by a disciple of Jesus.
And, because of that, it will destroy Christianity as we know it.
For starters: Color us cynical, but Turkish authorities find a book and claim it promotes Islam?
We've seen enough from our Muslim friends to know that lying doesn't seem to be a sin according to their faith. So excuse us if we take this one with a grain of salt.
Oh, yeah. Even though it was Turkish authorities who confiscated the book, the press reports that we're reading about it come to us from — wait for it — Iran!
Hey, you think that they might have an axe to grind here?
The Iranian report also tells us that "The Gospel Of Barnabas" claims that Jesus was never crucified and that He Himself predicted the coming of Muhammed.
Whether or not Jesus also predicted that Muhammed would marry a 10-year-old girl (which he did), the Iranians won't say.
And the Iranians themselves claim that the "Gospel" was written in the 5th or 6th century, A.D.
Dude, the author was removed from Jesus by hundreds of years.
So why would anyone take it seriously when you can read 4 Gospels written by guys who were actually there?
We're anxious to see what else comes out of this "Gospel". Maybe it will also reinforce the idea that followers of Allah who kill themselves while blowing up church nurseries in the name of jihad will immediately by sent to Paradise where "bashful, dark-eyed virgins" will cater to their every whim.
Wait. Isn't there a book that already promotes that idea?
Oh, yeah. It's called the Koran.
