The Muslim accepts that Jesus Christ (pbuh) is the “son of God” in the metaphorical sense. In the terminology of the Bible, any righteous man of God who submits to the Will of God is a “son of God”. Did not Jesus (pbuh) say: “…AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.” – (MATTHEW 5:16) Here Jesus (pbuh) did not say “my Father”, indicating that “father” and “son” are not to be taken literally. Begetting a son is an animal act belonging to the lower animal functions of sex. How can we attribute such a lowly quality to God? Jesus (pbuh) also said: “BLESSED ARE THE PEACE-MAKERS FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF GOD.” – (MATTHEW 5:9) “I ASCEND UNTO MY FATHER AND YOUR FATHER, MY GOD AND YOUR GOD.” – (JOHN 20:16)
