Dear Karl,

I think you need to do open your eyes and ears. But I know Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) was absolutely right when he said in Gospel of Mathew, Ch. No. 13, Verse No. 1: ‘Seeing they see not, hearing they hear not, neither will they understand.'

Qur'an has been proved by history as well as science to be of divine origin, which I am afraid you cannot say of the Bible.

But I do not blame you. You have been programmed this way. Why don't you ask why John 3:16 was thrown OUT of the Bible (RSV) by CHRISTIAN scholars.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only BEGOTTEN son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16 - AV)

Why don't you ask why 1st Epistle of John 5:7 was thrown OUT of the Bible (RSV) by CHRISTIAN scholars.

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the FATHER,
the WORD, and the HOLY GHOST: and these three are one." (1st Epistle of John 5:7 – AV)

This verse is the closest approximation to what the Christians call their Holy Trinity in the encyclopedia called the BIBLE. This key-stone of the Christian faith was also scrapped from the RSV without even a semblance of explanation by your scholars of the highest eminence.

One of the most serious of those "grave defects" which the authors of the RSV had tried to rectify concerned the Ascension of Christ. There have been only two references in the Canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and of John to the most stupendous event in Christianity — OF JESUS BEING TAKEN UP INTO HEAVEN. These two references were obtained in every Bible in every language, prior to 1952, when the RSV first appeared. These were:

4a. "So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was TAKEN UP INTO HEAVEN, and sat down at the right hand of God." (Mark 16:19)

4b. "While he blessed them, he parted from them, and was CARRIED UP INTO HEAVEN." (Luke 24:51)

But these were also thrown out in the RSV. If you can lay your hands on a RSV 1952, you will find the last six words of 4b above, i.e. "AND WAS CARRIED UP INTO HEAVEN" replaced by a tiny "a" to tell you to see the footnote if you please, where you will find these missing words. (The words were later restored on the protest of a few).

Now what do you say Karl?

Even the Christian scholars do not accept the challenge of debate on certain topics. I think you need to do some sincere research Karl.

May be Mathew, Ch 13, V 1 is truly for you.
