The Holy Bible Tells the Truth About Jesus Christ - No Respect for Who Jesus Christ is Cannot be Considered Truth

So we are in alignment with each other that we are not PHD's in theology. We each hold our written documents of belief come from a source attributable to our respective deities, the veracity of which comes from differing perspectives of authorship, purity of the current texts (not necessarily your argument, but others that have similar beliefs as you take it to task) and their accuracy (again, not necessarily your argument, but others that have similar beliefs as you that take it to task).

We shall start with this, that it is promoted the Quran is the last holy book from Allah. If we are to presume that a Holy Almighty God has all the power to accomplish His spoken and written word, in spite of any efforts of sinful men and women, there should be no expectation that whatever He has said will ever, EVER fail. This must be a given, or that Deity cannot claim to be Almighty God. This is the guarantee of the Holy Bible, that Almighty God's WORD is intact, now. just it ever has been.

It must be conceded here that by saying the Quran is the last book, there were others before it, such as in this explanation, the Holy Bible, comprised of the many, many texts written and compiled to become the Tanach (the Torah, the Neviim, and Kethuvim), and the Brit Hadassah.

If we are to be true to the circumstance that, as stated before, an Almighty God has the ability and the authority and the power to keep His revelations true and accurate, such would be impervious to the interferences and deviations caused by some who did not understand how the Scripture works and made attempts to change the texts to mean what men wanted it to say.

So, the argument some will make against the purity of any current Biblical translation, as is held by so many Muslims, is Islam's reason for not believing or holding to the truth (which means not respecting the Almighty God who the author by Spiritual inspiration) as found in the Holy Bible.

The world has made a thorough inspection of both texts, the Holy Bible and the Quran, and there are plenty of commentaries, some official in the religious context, and others by informed opinion. The Holy Bible has as its author the Eternal Sovereign, who used mortal men to write down His Holy Words, and protected these words throughout the centuries to the different languages we read from today.

Muslims the world over make the same proclamation as you regarding the Quran and its special place in the Muslim's life. But in doing so, the Muslim cannot truthfully make the statement that they regard the Person who is instrumental in keeping the Holy Bible true to His WORD and His revelation valid to His disciple. It cannot be both ways. The antipathies and antagonisms caused since the introduction of the Quran has made that very plain.

One must choose Jesus Christ as LORD and be true to the HOLY BIBLE in order to be obedient to Him. In the alternative, as any Muslim devoted to the Quran will attest, being a follower of the Islamic Prophet, will ultimately require denial of the truth in the Holy Bible and of rejecting Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior.

Given that I have salvation in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for my sins and has justified my relationship with Him through His love and forgiveness and I will remain obedient to Him, it is imperative that I, and any Christian who desires to remain faithful to Jesus Christ, look at the Quran and its many elements of disbelief about Jesus Christ and wonder, if they really respected (and some say love) Jesus Christ, (and I ask this of you) how can they follow the Quran when the Quran does not tell the truth about Him?
