Reno Omokri has shed some light on the controversy between Christians and Muslims concerning the sonship of Christ.
According to Reno, the bone of contention with Muslims believing Jesus is the son of God is that God has to have a “mate” to have a Son. He explained that it is not necessary for us to understand that process before we can accept it as he quizzed that how many people understand the process of aerodynamics by which a plane flies.
He captioned his post as: Understanding The Sonship of Christ
A young Muslim asked me a question saying ‘How can God have a son when He has no wife? You Christians are deceived.”
The Quran rejects the Sonship of Christ in Quran 6:101, which in Arabic says:
بَدِيۡعُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضِ ؕ اَنّٰى يَكُوۡنُ لَهٗ وَلَدٌ وَّلَمۡ تَكُنۡ لَّهٗ صَاحِبَةٌ ؕ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَىۡءٍ ۚ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَىۡءٍ عَلِيۡمٌ
And when translated to English, says:
“He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son when He has had no mate? And He has created everything and He has full knowledge of all things.”
Let me ask the young man this question, who is the Father of Adam?
In Quran 2, beginning from Surah 30, we read about Adam. He had no father. Obviously God is his Father. Adam’s genes did not come from any man. We do not know how God did it,
The challenge is that those who do not believe Christ is the Son of God believe that God has to have a “mate” to have a Son.
God has no wife. Christ already taught that there are no conjugal relationships in heaven-Matthew 22:30.
When Scripture says Christ is the Son of God, we should realise that He was not made a Son due to the normal human processes.
John 1:14 says “The Word of God became flesh.”
The Quran agrees with John 1:14, in Quran 4:171, which describes Christ as كلمة الل, which when written in Roman Script is Kalimat Allah, which when translated to English means the Word of God.
And it is not necessary for us to understand that process before we can accept it. How many people understand the process of aerodynamics by which a plane flies? Yet, even though we do not comprehend the process, we nevertheless fly in planes, because it is not a requirement for us to understand the process before we can benefit from it.
Similarly, it is not necessary for us to understanding the peculiarities of the process by which Christ is the Son of God, before we accept it.
Islam believes in the Pentateuch (first five Books of Moses). Well, Moses said “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law”-Deuteronomy 29:29
