Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

It says in the new testament to love thy enemies and 'if a man strikes you on his left cheek, offer him your right also' and in the talmud (or somewhere before Malachi) 'I am God and change not' Malachi 3:6. Therefore how can the books of Islam be a continuation or a completion of the books that Jews and Christians follow if they contradict each other? Also says in revelation 22:18-19 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city', therefore continuing the prophecy is impossible unless the claim of the Quran is untrue. It says in the Quran to fight when oppressed, this is different to the approach the disciples of the new testament have in Acts. God changes not, yet if Islam is the continuation is true then God changed his mind on his doctrine of fighting when oppressed? Also the Quran says to defend the temple and land does it not? Sura 2:191. Do not fight near the mosque unless they fight you first. But the new testament says the our bodies are the temple of the holy spirit and Jesus in Solomon's temple 'destroy this temple and I will raise it up in three days' well since the temple didn't fall down only Jesus was killed and raised again therefore the temple Jesus referred to was himself. Since Jesus is the only perfect person (I think the Quran agrees I'm not sure) it would be wise to follow his example. His example is that WE are the temples, eliminating the need for temples. And we saw earlier in Malachi 3:6 that God does not change, so this all of this is true today. Since I have just proven two claims of the Quran to be untrue, the fact that there is no need for a physical temple and that the Quran and the Bible teaches different things on atleast one point. Then if I have proven two things to be untrue how can the Quran be true?
