Even as late as this entry is to this post, it does provide one of the more compelling appeals to those who would be true to the Quran. However, it does the same thing as others who hold to the tenets of Islam, likely in all of its variant forms. Readers of the previous post are admonished not to judge Islam out of hand, for it is supposed that if one does not practice being Muslim, one cannot attain to its teachings. Like any subject treated in unfamiliarity, this is a truth.

Unfortunately, for those who would make such an argument, there is no ‘quid pro quo,' that if one were to ask for the same treatment for the beliefs held to in the Holy Bible, most Muslims will berate anyone who would hold to the faith they have in Jesus Christ. Both claim truth in their written pages; both claim equivalency in their devotion to the respective deity of each document. It is not the intent here to reinvigorate the debate, but to lay open again the question:

That if the Holy Bible has demonstrable evidence of the facts of the Person of Jesus Christ, and the witness of Him being born to a maiden, being sent to the cross by the Chief rulers of the time for their unbelief in Him; and then His dying on the cross and being resurrected and ascended to the right hand of Almighty God, how then does the writer of the Quran contradict the evidence established by the Word of the LORD except by unbelief in an Almighty God that has already revealed His Truth?

(We know that Jesus Christ came before all things written, for had He not, then the writer of the Quran would have treated his acknowledgment of Jesus Christ differently).

These things this writer witnesses after many decades of a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, not from the religion of the parents, not from the religion of his youth or the religion of his education, but of reading and allowing the Holy Bible to speak its Truth though the Holy Spirit. It tells of being faithful to Jesus Christ because of the love of an Almighty God who sent Jesus Christ as remission of this reader's sins, and those sins of any who will believe in faith in the LORD Jesus Christ as Savior.

The Quran, in its own words, takes that love away. Why, then, would anyone reject that kind of love found in the Holy Bible?
