"Respect", "bayezid" is something I reserve for those who have earned it.

in response to reader comment: say kman, did you learn your tactics from dhimmi no more ?

I would tell you of the God that loves you and won't have any truck with lie, deception, or deceit, but you have no interest. You are more interested in your own "pride" and "pride of one's own religion" than in seeing truth.

I have told you of the Christ who preached not only peace, but love, integrity, owning up to your promises (truth), holiness, and so on. You are interested in proving your religion regardless of truth. I can find all the quotes you want, but won't waste the time with someone who refuses to recognize the truth when he sees it. Your exposure to the New Testament of Christianity is the words fed to you by Muslims. I have read the words of the Muslim Quran presented by Muslims.

I encountered the one God through his own effort when he "slapped" me into realty. Once I took an honest look into his book, I found, after having investigated and rejected all religions, the one God that spoke truth and didn't lie to me for any reason including "convenience".

When you have an interest in looking honestly and sincerely, then I will put in more time with you.

I quote truth and you say, "but the Quran says .... and that is the ultimate test of truth". That isn't your exact words, but it is easily the gist of them. When you can objectively look at any religion beyond what you are only willing to look at, then I will reply with "quote".

One last thing. Today, I took another look into the Quran. I found a few words that were supposedly "quotes" from Jesus, isus, or whatever you prefer to call him. What I found was a lot of late day intrusions that were only observed by Islam recently. "Opinion" is what I found. Truth took a flight south. You might want to call them updated translations. I don't find those in Biblical re-translations. Biblical re-translations keep the change of man's words up to date with the un-changing words of God. Even that is slight. There are some people even among academia who are finding political correctness to be more advantageous here lately. Corruption eventually weaves its way in despite everything God does. He will have his way in the end and all peoples will see the "pride" they bought into instead of truth.

The early Quran contradicted the latter. That is the god of Islam - chnage. The God of Jesus Christ fulfilled the early Bible and never changed or contradicted a thing. Muslims say that the latter Quran takes presidence over the former. That Quran's god changed his mind over what constituted truth.
