From where do the alternatives come from?

Reader comment on item: Must Islamists Be Autocratic?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jul 20, 2013 at 13:40

As long as Islam is unchangeable, just like what Jesus Christ handed over to the Apostles; I cite these words:

What was Christ's Church like, then, before words like "schism", "heretic", "sect" were used by Christians to describe one another? We know that the Church was one, that its faith was Catholic in the sense best described by St. Vincent of Lerinz, "Such teaching is truly Catholic as has been believed in all places, at all times, and by all The faithful." By this test of universality, antiquity, and consent, all controversial points in belief must be tried.

I got it from this url: http://www.evangelicalorthodoxcatholic.org/Old%20Catholic_Orthodox%20History%20in%20Europe.html

Seeing that there are Muslims who say that if change were introduced, Islam would cease to be Islam, change can only come from outsiders.

For, where are the Stephen Langston's to bring about, again, the Magna Carta, which circumscribes the authority of Allah?

At least the God who spoke to Moses out of the burning bush (and is present in the body & blood that is given out as communion, when Christians take communion), is the same, and one of his gifts to each person (as well as the human race), is free will.
