You're ranting again.

If I am to understand your long-winded treatise correctly, since the Holy Koran, because it was sent to an Arab in his own language to him help convert his nation as God decreed, then you say it is only meant for those within the Arabic nation/s. Therefore today's Christians from all over the world have NO religion. Do you or do you know anyone who speaks or reads Aramaic, the Prophet Jesus' (Peace Be Upon Him) native language? I doubt it, yet if I go by your train of thought, the Gospel (Bible) is being followed wrongly by, lets choose English-speaking Christians, because it is not written in the language that Jesus had originally taught in and must be regarded as restricted only to those peoples living in his part of the world.

WOW! Then Joseph Smith of the Latter Day Saints is truly THE Prophet for the Amercas after all? The Angel Gabriel (who also brought the Koran 6 centuries before to the Prophet Muhammed -pbuh) supposedly revealed the Book of Mormon IN ENGLISH for Br. Smith and his followers to educate the English-speaking world.

Keep going, Br.Plato, I am thoroughly enjoying this.
