We read in your response the inconsistencies that are of your own misguided logic.

Choosing ‘God the Supreme' requires being obedient in love to His Commandments, something that is not observable in Islam when unbelief in Who Yeshua HaMashiach is presented, as in the case of limiting the Person of HaMashiach to His former human existence, an incorrect assertion caused by relying on the Quran instead of the Holy Bible.

Disciples of Yeshua HaMashiach do not worship an ‘earthly being', calling our Savior ‘earthly' being again an incorrect assertion by Muslims made by relying on the Quran instead of the Holy Bible.

The allegation thatr Muslims are better should be carefully examined in light of the principle differences demonstrated by the lack of obedience in love shown by Islamic followers, some demanding death for those who do not follow the Islamic Prophet and the imams. Again, the incorrect assertion by followers of the Quran whose unbelief in the Holy Bible would make the wrong statement that Christians believe in three gods. The Holy Bible, long before the Quran was ever written, demanded that the Hebrews worship only One God, HaShem. In that the Person of that One God show Himself to be, at the same time, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is central to faith in Him for all of His personal attributes. A distinction is to be made here, that true disciples of Yeshua HaMashiach DO NOT worship the woman who bore Yeshua; that is found as a distinctive of the Orthodox/Roman variant of faux Christianity, and one will never find the mandate to do such worship in the Holy Bible.

Muslims may recognize other religious writing for what they are, religious writings; but by your own words Muslims will only acknowledge the Quran as the one they will follow. To say that you, a self – proclaimed Muslim, believes in the Holy Bible (both the Tanach, Brit Hadassah) is both a contradiction, and at the same time, a fallacy. By your own reading and understanding of others who have defamed the Holy Bible as corrupt to protect your own belief system, you have denied the central tenets contained in the Holy Bible and therefore cannot claim belief.

Preservation of the Quran by the Arabic speaking followers of the Islamic is necessary for Arabic speaking Muslims, while as mentioned above about your belief in corrupted copies of the Bible, it is the Holy Spirit that preserves the truth we must follow in Yeshua HaMashiach, whether it is written in the original tongues (Ancient Hebrew(Torah), Greek (Septuagint, Three Gospels and rest of Brit Hadassah) , Aramaic(Matthew)), or the translations inspired by the Holy Spirit and provided for study in each of our respective languages, including Arabic.

The Holy Bible says that Almighty God is not a respecter of persons, in that He responds to any who humble themselves before Him through Yeshua HaMashiach in repentance of sins, redeeming those who seek His forgiveness; so even you could appear before Yeshua in such a fashion to ask forgiveness of your sins, to be like me, a sinner saved by grace. In that regard, I would be considered no better than you.

My only tangible evidence of my faith in Yeshua HaMashiach is that which is provided by His Holy Spirit as I go about life, and His written evidence of His WORD, as found in the Holy Bible. No such assurances are to be found in the Quran for a disciple of Yeshua HaMashiach.

And if it was truly as you say about belief in the unseen by Muslims, why does a Muslim need to seek out and touch the sacred part of the Kaaba in order to complete the Hajj, becoming a completed follower of the Islamic Prophet? No such requirement is made of true disciples of Yeshua HaMashiach, only faith in believing in Him.
