The problem is the Quran

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by Roger E. Nasiff (United States), Sep 12, 2007 at 14:20

Thank you Daniel for your article. Just after the 9/11 attack, I remember being told by many that talking about the Bible verses the Quran wasn't proper. I sent you a paper that was called Islam verses Love thy Neighbor. You were respectful to me but disagreed with that type of discussion.

I am, like you, also very glad that people are now at least discussing the problem Islam is causing worldwide. The only true solution to this problem is to understand why the Quran motivates so many to be murderers. Knowing the law of love in the Bible then trying to read the Quran shows a directly oppposite view of the world. John 3:16 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him will be saved (believing in Him includes submitting to God as the only source of life and that we are not God. The Quran orders muslims to kill for their deity. The Bible orders Chrsitians to love got their deity. Very opposite orders). Christians love even their enemies so much that we give our own lives to save them just as Jesus gave His life to save us makes us better people. This absolute most honorable love in our hearts makes us like God.

Islam teaches hatred for all who will not bow down to their deity. That is commanded in the Quran as quoted thoroughout my article and many books and articles by others since. Until we discuss this openly, debates will continue on tangents that don't don't go to the heart of the problem - the Quran itself. The same holds for communists. To understand much about them we need to study their 'holy' scriptures too to compare them to the teachings of Jesus: e.g. Stalin's works, Marx, etc.
