Irans Basij Press is claiming a purported Gospel of Barnabas, discovered in 2000, will prove that Islam is the final and righteous religion, causing the collapse worldwide of Christianity.
In the Barnabas text held by Turkey, chapter 41 states: God has hidden himself as Archangel Michael ran them (Adam and Eve) out of heaven, (and) when Adam turned, he noticed that at top of the gateway to heaven, it was written La elah ela Allah, Mohamad rasool Allah, meaning Allah is the only God and Muhammad his prophet.
According to the Barnabas Gospel in Turkeys hands, Jesus was never crucified, Hes not the Son of God and He, Himself, predicts the coming of Muhammad. The book even predicts the coming of the last Islamic messiah, the report says.
Turkey plans to put the Bible on public display. Though Turkish authorities believe it could be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, others believe it only goes back to the 16th century and is a fake because it would have been written centuries after Muhammads life.
Erick Stakelbeck, said Iran is highlighting the book because it sees Christianity as a threat.
In promoting the so-called Barnabas Bible which is not accepted by any mainstream Christian denomination the regime is once again attempting to discredit the Christian faith. Record numbers of young Iranians are leaving Islam and embracing Christ, and the mullahs see Christianity as a growing threat to their authority.
The Vatican has requested to see the text, but it is unknown if Turkey has provided access.
Khamenei said: In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty Allah, the Zionists and the Great Satan (America) will soon be defeated. Allahs promise will be delivered and Islam will be victorious.

The sect has a couple hundred followers. I don't believe them, but at least they are generally nice people and don't go around chopping off heads of those who disagree with their brand of theology.
The “Gospel of Barnabas” is a 16th century Muslim forgery, and not even a very good forgery.
But a week later it was written in the same place, "Eat at Joe's Restauarant. Best burgers anywhere!"
Probably will only make you attractive to gays...
Give them time.....remember the Tokyo Subway massacre.............Aum Shinrikyo............

Sounds more like Mohammed and his ideological spawn worship Satan, not god.
Explains a lot about the Iranian Mullahs, too.
Interesting that Adam and Eve could read Arabic. (Shouldn’t anyone who taught Eve to read be executed?)
You’ve gotta give those clowns with the white beards and black dresses credit for having a sense of humor.But they’ll be laughing out of the other side of their faces if they don’t abandon their nuke program....soon!
Crap can be turned into fertilizer, and therefore is far more beneficial than islam ever will be.

Seriously, Onward Christian Soldiers will not be a hymn sung at services, it will be a rallying cry to arms.

Oy’m stealing that, oy am.
Put. The. Crack. Pipe. Down!
They learned it in the 16th century just before this 'Gospel' was written.
(Shouldnt anyone who taught Eve to read be executed?)
Of course! And Eve should be stoned to death as an adultress - to preserve the family honor! Inshallah!
