……..and it keeps on coming, accusatory allegations that seemingly cannot be stemmed with the truth; and too few seem to understand why.

Why are there still exchanges about whose version of religious writings are better? Because it has been observed, even as some of the Islamic mindset have said, one needs to follow the human rationale to 'see' the 'corruption.'

So let us go to the last question: "Why would GOD send Muhammad and the Quran if it was not because previous nations corrupted their books and made mischief in the land such as the Jews and the church people?"

Why, indeed. There is an answer from the Hebrew Holy Bible; but since that has been debated by the Muslim ideology already, we'll let it go for the moment. Yet again, why is there the Islamic Prophet, the Quran, even Islam itself extant, if as it is asserted, an all omniscient, all powerful deity cannot control the publication of his prophecies any better than it appears to have been done?

The previous reader has alleged that the Hebrew Holy Scripture is corrupted and the Quran is not. How does he make that distinction? While both have been said to be handed down from above, how does one make the distinction of the human receivers who make the claim of their respective books? Are not all men women and children made in a corrupted nature? What purifies the mind of any person to be able to handle the WORD of the LORD?

IN the final analysis, there is no debating the priority of the Hebrew Holy Bible over the Quran in human terms-it is an impossible task, one that the Adversary counts on. When there is the chiding here of one version of religious beliefs being better than another, no one wins.

So, then to whom does one go to resolve the issue? Now there's the rub. Does the Quran provide a means to deal with a corrupted mind; or does the Hebrew Holy Bible? If one has determined by human reasoning that the internal struggle of each and every person cannot be resolved by human reasoning, where does one turn to, another book written by man?

So if mankind cannot provide the answers, then Almighty GOD must be sought out to get to the eternal answer. But choose wisely; for the answer you are looking for can be corrupted at the human level: only Almighty GOD can give the true answers and will use His WORD and Holy Spirit to weed out the corruption.
