Take some examples: Jesus taught Old Testament Law; Paul negated it. Jesus preached orthodox Jewish creed; Paul preached mysteries of faith. Jesus spoke of accountability; Paul proposed justification by faith. Jesus described himself as an ethnic prophet; Paul defined him as a universal prophet. Jesus taught prayer to God, Paul set Jesus up as intercessor. Jesus taught divine unity, Pauline theologians constructed the Trinity.

For these reasons, many scholars consider Paul the main corrupter of Apostolic Christianity and Jesus' teachings. Many early Christian sects held this view as well, including the second-century Christian sects known as adoptionists In particular, they considered Paul, one of the most prominent authors of our New Testament, to be an arch-heretic rather than an apostle.

Lehmann contributes,

What Paul proclaimed as Christianity was sheer heresy which could not be based on the Jewish or Essene faith, or on the teaching of Rabbi Jesus. But, as Schon ...more

.A study of the Christian scriptures reveals that Jesus (PBUH) never claimed divinity.In fact there is not a single unequivocal statement in the entire Bible where Jesus(PBUH) himself says"Iam God" or where he says,worship me".Infactthe Bible contains statements attributed to Jesus(pbuh) in which he preached quite te contrary.Consider the following statements in the Bible,attributed to Jesus Crist(pbuh)
" My Father is Greater than I"
(John 14:28)
" My Father is Greater than all"
(John 10:29)
"....I cast out devils by the spirit of God..."
(Mathew` 12:28)
".....with the finger of God cast out devils...."
(Luke 11:20)
The following statement from the Bible supports the Islamic belief that Jesus(pbuh) was a prophet of God. ...more

God Alone Is to Be Worshiped
One of the distinctive characteristics of the Jewish culture and faith, (including the Jewish culture and faith of the first century) is the universally accepted understanding that God alone is worthy of our worship. This concept is first among the Ten Commandments:

Thats why it is amazing to see that from Jesus very first appearance on planet earth, He was worshipped as God! Now that single truth, the fact that those around Jesus worshiped Him in a culture that demanded and commanded worship of God alone, is a powerful evidence of Jesus deity. We either have to believe that thousands upon thousands of eyewitnesses and early believers (all of whom were much closer to Jesus than we are) were in rebellion to their culture and moral law, or were convinced by what they saw before them that JESUS WAS AND IS GOD.

The wise men worshiped him from the moment He was born
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down a ...more

Jesus is a human like you and me. All humans die.

Allah never claimed that Humans do not die and in the entire Quran
Allah NEVER said HUMANS DO NOT DIE but quran confirms that humans die :
"The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a messenger; messengers before him had indeed passed away." (5:75)

"And Muhammad is only a messenger messengers have already passed away before him. If, then, he dies or is killed, will you turn back upon your heels?" (3:143)

MUSLIMS HAVE TWISTED ALLAH'S WORDS AND ALLAH'S JUDGEMENT IS WAITING FOR THEM.
