The Apostle Paul practiced taqqiya



Christian critics of Islam love bringing up the issue of taqqiya, claiming Muslims are allowed to lie, and to be deceptive in how they act in order to draw people towards Islam.

So imagine the irony when we read that the Apostle Paul, openly admits that he employs taqqiya tactics during his ministry.

Paul admits this in 1 Corinthians chapter 9 verses 19-22:

For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.  To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

So Paul says to a Jew he acted like a Jew to lure them, and to the pagans and none Jews he acted like one of them to simply lure them in.

In 2 Corinthians chapter 12:16 Paul also says:

Be that as it may, I have not been a burden to you. Yet, crafty (panourgos) fellow that I am, I caught you by trickery (dolos)!

The word trickery here, ‘dolos’ in Greek, is mainly used in a bad sense in the Bible, in the sense that someone is a liar, and Paul here admits that through crafty means he managed to trick the people.

So the next time a Christian critic brings up the issue of taqqiya and Muslims being allowed to lie, just refer them to these verses from the Bible, where Paul openly admits he uses deceit with others in order to lure them into his message.
