in response to reader comment: In the Bible, Billions of the non-believers have and will be slain

In all actuality, you are forgetting how the English language works. "God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit." Gramatically, and this is very basic. God is applied to every phrase that starts with "the". It is distributive. Otherwise, the entire phrase is a fragment and inadmissable as proper English. In addition, if you go back and examine the original Greek and Hebrew, God is with each one. Also, the Qu'ran cannot be compared to the Jewish Torah or the Christain Bible because it came far later and is based of things taken from each of the prior books as well as Muhammad's own beliefs added in. He took much from the Jewish Scriptures and Christian Bible, but left out that which he did not see as profitable to his beliefs.
