God doesn't change!

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: to EuGene Turner: Mohammad (s.a.v.) never said that Abraham was a liar

My Dear Friend Nuray,

Let me help you here? The first rule of "Hermanuetics" is that you interpret the Old Testament in the light of The New Testament because the New Testament is the completion of the Old Testament and you go backwards to interpret. (Never the opposite). I suspect that you may not be aware that there were three men that approached Abraham on the Plains of Mamre in the book of Genesis, (Chapter 14)two were Angels and the remaining man Abraham called Lord, that man could only be the pre-incarnate Christ!

Why do I go to the Old Testament with praise you ask? Because that is where you will find the texts that you say have been corrupted by others and yet these "others" you mentioned are the two Angels and God Himself. The sources for Muhammed's position are from that conversation between Abraham and the two Angels and God. He changed it to say that Ishmael was the chosen people of God. Ishmael was conceived in adultery with Hagar. God chose Abraham to be the father of the Hebrew children and Ishmael was the father of the Arab people. One was ligitimate and one was not: ergo: Sarah and Hagar.

Thats the Biblical record, read it for yourself and realize that Holy Scripture is thousands of years older than Muhammed and The Koran. The Book of Revelation says that if anyone adds to or takes away from the prophecy of this book, God will add the plagues of the book to that one. Jesus (Yeshua) claimed to be God. In the book of St. John the Apostle whom Jesus loved quoted Jesus when He said: "Before Abraham ever came to be, I AM the Eternal God" The evidence is irrefutable. I hope we can continue to share dialogue together in the Spirit of Truth.

Your Friend

EuGene
