Furthering Understanding - Why Islam MUST Oppose the Holy Bible

Reader comment on item: Istinja' with the Torah and New Testament
in response to reader comment: By the Way - Understanding The Holy Bible is Hard Without the Spirit

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Oct 6, 2010 at 18:32

So in reading the other observations in this series of posts, a second thought about the question, that 'if the religion (sic) were already perfect,' why indeed was Jesus Christ sent by Almighty God? This can be glibly answered by saying, 'that was the plan all along!' But that would not be helpful, so we try again.

How do we have an ability as humans with our flawed logic to understand the plan of Almighty God (Isaiah 55:8) to save errant humanity from itself? We can't, in and of ourselves; yet this is again answered by the Hebrew Holy Bible-that if we seek Him in His Truth, He will respond; and Almighty God provides all that any need to know for salvation in the Name of Jesus Christ.

But this is what Islam attempts to keep hidden, hiding behind the unbelief of a series of hundreds-year-old dictations that attempt to avert the necessity of sinful humanity to seek out the Truth of Jesus Christ, and to apply it in faith by the power of His love for each of us. Otherwise we hide from a righteous Sovereign to unsuccessfully cover our sin, when in fact, we need to confess it the Name of Jesus Christ and ask His forgiveness in His mercy.

In His power of forgiveness by His love IS the perfection by which we need to have Jesus Christ as an integral part of our life now and in the future. The first part in the Old Testament provided the set-up for faith in Jesus Christ as the 'Anointed', and the New Testament completed the set-up by confirming His designation as the 'Anointed,' all in perfect harmony to the plan of Almighty God through Jesus Christ. So indeed, it has been always perfect. Only in human misunderstanding does anyone dare to claim corruption in the perfection of the WORD of the LORD.

But it is asked again: why, then, in the light of the Truth of Jesus Christ, would Islam want to claim that is corrupted and hide that? I'm sure I can only speculate on that; so I would have to defer to a Muslim for that human logic.
