To Ahmad zafire and Tariq
Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
Submitted by Lisa (Canada), Jan 22, 2006 at 20:23Here is some reading you need to have
I haven't said that Quran today is not the same Quran that was preached by Muhammad, I said that Muhammad is the only witness on the assumption that Quran is word from GOD.
Quran to me in its present contents, doesn't mean much other than a book full of angry GOD, hatred and in some verses presents nice GOD that was taken from Christianity
The versus in Mecca are the ones inspired by Muhammad little knowledge of Christianity, however the verses of Madena is when he reached a high level of power and started his political outrage on Jews, on Arab tribes, etc. He could defeat Mecca's people, steal and rape in the name of what he called Allah.
Can't you see it, GOD created all mankind equal, why would GOD ask one of his children to kill in his name? If you are a father and your kids had a fight, what would you do? do you encourage one of them to kill the other? I know I know, you will tell me that Killing in Islam is only for JUST. But what is JUST? JUST in the Middle East is different than just in Europe, and North America, etc. example, Just in Iran is to destroy Israel, Israel says that the land is for the Jews and the palistenian say that the land is theirs. Quran says that land of Islam ca not be ruled by inidales, it says that Muslims should fight occupation and kill those who take thier lands from them. All about land, property, earthy power, etc
Killing in Christianity does NOT have any justification, even criminals although should be poisoned but never be killed or tortured. There is no opsession about land, honour, property, and materialistics in Chrsitianity, it is a spiritual relationship between humans and almighty GOD, GOD almighty didn't leave to human to judge or to kill because he knows that human have tendency to favour themselves over others.
You have provided me with long article about the personality of Muhammad, who you assume that he was honest and trustworthy. Trust me I have been taught Quran, Hadith, Sunna and tafseer since I was in kindergaden and also in its original language "Arabic", I can see where are you coming from, I have seen lots of people who have been blinded by what they are fed from Imam's.
For me and billion others, there is no doubt that Muhammad was extremely intelligent, he has a clear political agenda in his mind that he planned and worked to his benefit and the benefits of his followers, a man who spread a word of Superiority of Islam and intimidated the whole world with this what he called a message of peace, the destruction and hate in islam in no way can be coming from the loving GOD that Jesus introduced to the world.
Until now, neither Ahmad nor Tariq provided any intelligent support for their accusation that the bibles are corrupted and also none of them answered my question. To make it easy I will re-write my question and will wait for your answer. If tariq and Ahmad will not even bother to read the bibles because they were told that the bibles are corrupted, I encourage you to read it and tell me what is so corrupted in "Love your enemies as much as you love yourself"
Before accusing the authenticity of the bibles, please research through history, or maybe research about the Dead Sea scrolls that were found in 1948
All existing bibles in all languages talk about the same message, all Christians are united in their believe that Jesus is the living GOD
Please ask yourself, why would Christians change the bibles, those who were persecuted, tortured, thrown to lions, burned alive for 300 years before the Roman Empire made Christianity as the religion of state?
Neither Christ nor the apostles had any earthy benefit from believing in Christianity on the contrary, their believe caused them grief, pain and death, unlike Muhammad and his followers who gained power, wealth, sex, etc from being Muslims
Peace be with you
