Being deceived

It must be remembered that the Muslim view of the Almighty is different to the Christian view. Statements like ‘God loves you’ or ‘Jesus loves you’ sound romantic but are far from truth and understanding of the human mind. An evil cannot be loved by God which is why there is hell.

Regarding Prophet Issa (peace be upon him), there are two views; one is that he did not die and the other is that he died. What must be accepted is that one of the two is definitely deceived.

[2:26] Of course, Allah is not ashamed to quote and narrate the parable (mathalan) of a gnat, or anything smaller. Those who believe know that it certainly is the truth from their Lord. But those who disbelieve, say, “What does Allah mean by this parable?” Thereby, He causes many to stray, and leads many others to the right path! By that, He misleads only the sinful rebellious ones

[3:59] The example (mathalan) of Issa, as far as Allah is concerned, is the same as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him, “Be,” and he was.

The situation of Prophet Issa (peace be upon him) is like an example and Allah misguides the sinful ones through examples. Please remember that the Arabic word for example in both the verses is the same.
