See the reason why i used quotes from the Bible was to let people on this forum know just exactly what you said... that any book can be interpreted wrong. As for the Koran Muslims believes it speak about past, present and future. My thoughts on it is that each situation is different. Just because I'm a American Muslim ( although i have experienced some basis because of my faith. But many people are scared to say anything they more as question then after answering as you walk away you can here them whispering about you. Not knowing that this Muslim spend 18mos for three years away from his wife and kids to make sure terrorists stay away from my country in which i live. And this is commanded in the Koran.

Sorry lost track!!!...lol But back to what I was saying that we all don't know too much of what really goes on in the other side. See with Islam the Koran is for Muslims to follow as it tell you how to live your life and to warns to stay away from things they are negative. Muslims are also told to believe in the bible and read it but to beware of the corrupted verses. The Koran is not a replacement for the bible, because the bible tells the gospels or (the Ingel) which are stories about Jesus/Is'ha(pbuh) the Koran mention Christ(pbuh) many,many times but don't just have stories on him because Christ came during his time and era to remind the Israelites to stay on the true path. And Mohammad(pbuh) was giving the Koran to lead the world to the guidance of Allah and the Prophets(pbuh) that came before him .

Many Christians will agree with me on that because the bible has been changed over and over again. But I do believe in the bible because its G-d's gift to the world...I wouldn't be Muslim if I didn't. (just to respond to Susan comment)
Yes, I agree Muslims, not Islam have to change because Islam is universal and can coexist in modern times. There are millions of Muslims that do. But the other half that don't believe so then I feel that they are full believers of their faith. Because Allah says Islam is for all man and time. Meaning Islam is flexible to changes. Just as I and million other Muslims that live in modern society can still preform all Islamic prayer,holidays and more. We are just as Muslims as they are or more.

( THIS IS FOR PEOPLE IN GENERAL) Please read what I'm saying and not twist it around. If you don't understand please say so and I'll try to make it clearer for you. Thanks.
