That you are well versed in the study of the Quran and all of its particularly Sunni tenets of belief is quite plain to see-commendable actually. In that, I would not/will not challenge you on any of the particulars to which the Holy Bible does not have its previous views. But, in that you have not the same introspection of the Hebrew Holy Bible, your indications of Quranic preferences are the reason you cannot come to grips as to why any person who has a saving relationship with the only Person who saves the soul would do so over any arguments to the contrary.

Asking for proof of those things which are logical do not always provide the proof necessary for belief, amply demonstrated in your prejudice for the things that have been proved for believers in the Hebrew Holy Bible, but still not ample for your prejudices. And yes, I do have my prejudice for the things spoken of by Jesus Christ; for He has proved Himself to me, over and over and over again, in a way that the Quran has not been able to.

Let us make this direct to my point of why I have made my preference of Jesus Christ over any pretender to His claims of sufficiency to meet my eternal needs. Remembering that no Jewish person who did not believe Yeshua at His first appearance was ever accorded the promises they did not believe, then it is written that only those Jewish persons who did believe Yeshua and were converted at that time are the ones who provide the correct witness, and not the lies perpetrated by the Rulers of the time who are responsible for the lies. That being said, everything you mention as a reason for not believing in Jesus Christ comes from those lies, and the lies cannot tell about who Jesus Christ really is. Even the devil and his minions know who Jesus Christ is and it is their lies that deprive any attempts at the truth.

I have not chosen to read the Quran in its entirety for one very compelling reason: it is not the original work of Almighty God from my youth: the Holy Bible is. All that the Quran does is try to tell me that all that Almighty God told me by His Spirit is wrong-is that not wrong in and of itself. If I have it on the assurances of the WORD of Jesus Christ that He died for my sins and rose again for my justification of faith in Him, is that not worth all my fealty and allegiance in Him? By the power of His love, it is.

You state you have proof that the Quran is from God; yet except from circular argumentativeness, there is no more proof of that than as it is said of the Holy Bible-that Almighty God said so. But I have another way that you do not acknowledge, so I cannot help in that regard. While I am sure you will not accept the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in His love to be my Savior, He is my proof; and His WORD the guarantee in writing and in His Spirit. All the reading of the Quran will never take that away.

But you have mentioned a situation that is peculiar to the study of the Quran, just as divisive and dissuading as any assertions of Biblical diversity of understanding. You make mention of the al-Madhi by reference for that time of the immediate future, of a time that is referred to by the President of Iran. By the words of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the 12th Imam is in the wings waiting for the moment to appear to the faithful. It is in times of turmoil that this is supposed to happen. If I have understood your assertions about Shiite beliefs, this is not going to happen? While I would suspect that would be good news for Israel, I am afraid for those in unbelief that a time is coming in which there will be just those things Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for, just not in the way he and his followers are hoping for.

But that is for you to resolve when that time comes. Jesus Christ has promised His way for me; and based on His love for me, He's as good on His WORD as He has been good to me. That's my proof.
