Truthfully, no one even know if Samson or Judah even existed. They could be made up people like so many made up people and stories in the Bible.
But I agree that Adam was a Muslim and so was Jesus.
If Jesus WAS a muslim, then I agree with you. No one knows what became of him as a muslim.
As the Son of God, you most definitely hanging His Celestial Being for His piety of death and resurrection.
He was not a law maker like Moses and Muhammad 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. Deuteronomy 18:18-19. Jesus was a law abider, abiding by the laws of Moses. Jesus was not a leader in the community as Moses and Muhammad were. He did not move a multitude of men as Moses and Muhammad did. He did not leave a legacy as Moses and Muhammad did. What Christians follow is Paul's doctrine. Jesus did not really have a doctrine since he was following Moses' doctrine.
I took the liberty of cutting out the other things I taught was irrelevant. Just to clarify are you saying that Muhammad is like Moses and the verse you quoted above is referencing Muhammad?
By the way, we follow what's written in the bible regardless of who doctrine it is. God allow it to be there and we are obligated to following what He has instructed.
What I said is that Muhammad does not need the help of the Bible to validate his existence. He is not regarded as a myth the way Jesus is. However, if you were to be liberal, Muhammad had many of the same roles and responsibilities as Moses.
Secondly, While you may be following what is written in the Bible, you are not following what Moses or Jesus followed. Both Moses and Jesus knew nothing about a triune God. Both of them follow one God and if you take Jesus at his word, he told the man asking him about everlasting life to pay particular heed to the 1st commandment. When you worship Jesus and the Holy Ghost as co-equal God to God, you are going against what Jesus stood for.
Lastly, you stated that God has allowed what is in the Bible to be there so you are obligated to follow them. Similarly, God has allowed the Qur'an to be in existence to you must feel equally obligated to follow the Qur'an. Interesting, the God described in the Qur'an is the one that Jesus would recognize and the one he worshipped.
