in response to reader comment: The point of the discussion?

Submitted by Sue (United Kingdom), Oct 2, 2005 at 09:24

Hi,

Sorry i will try to answer very shortly :
1. God's love in Islam is not conditional it's logic. Your father would not tell you i love you even though ur doing bad things, cause this will make you feel more cool doing bad things since there's no consequence.
But if ur father tells you, now ur being a bad boy doing these bad things and i'm really not loving these acts, u will try to make urself better to be up to ur fathers expectations.

this is the same in Islam, God loves the people, and wishes they would be good and do good things on earth. However, when u keep doing the bad things on and on and on, u wouldn't be deserving any love, would u?
Besides, God doesn't get frustrated, in the Quran it's mentioned what means that God doesn't lose anything if we don't obey, it's us the losers.
Besides, God talks in the Quran about the delivery of a baby for example how it's painful for women and therefore they're very near of going to heaven in acknowledgement of the pain they went through. and they have to be respected for that.
However, in the bible it is written that the labour pain is a punishement for women because the sin that Eve had made. So how loving and forgiving is God in the bible, punishing all the women because of the mistake of one single woman?

I guess christianity is more putting the people on the safe side, like u don't have to worry about anything, u'll be safe, and no matter how bad u are. we sacrifieced someone for you, now do whatever u like.
This is not a fair situation as i said many times before, and my mind fails to acknowledge it.
I know it makes people happy to be knowing they're on the safe side, but i wouldn't be on the safe side knowing some innocent person died for the bad things i'm doing.
I ought to have a bad conscious about it instead.

2. Miracles in Islam:
I also do read arabic, and surprisingly, i can understand the miracles in the Quran, and i do not think that some professors invented them. Professors just proved them and explained them more, but didn't invent them, they're there since 1400 years ago. Infact i see them very clear.
For example when it says a baby looks like a 'nutfa' which is a wormlike figure, it can only mean that, i don't need a professor to teach me that. I only have to look at a baby scan to see it's true.
Exactly like all the other examples.
However, NOTHING in the bible, Torah, or any other book have been able to give even 1 example of a scientific miracle.

3. Having said that there is punishment in Christianity, then you have acknowledged that meaning of our God being able to punish. Very good.
We also believe that punishement could not be during this life, and no one on earth should do the punishement, it's only God who judges.
Same.

4. Jesus soul of God: I have also read it in Arabic and it says 'nafakha fihi min Rohihi' meaning blew his soul in him. Blew the soul of Jesus in him(Jesus).
If you fail to understand it from the Quran try 'Tafsir Ibn Kathir' it's one of the
important explanation books, should be easy and clear for you if you read arabic.

5. I have read the new and the old testemony. I know Jesus woke the dead, this i call a miracle.
Well, Moses devided the red sea. This is a miracle. Salomon had miracles, Abraham had miracles. I'm just repeating myself. Doing a miracle is a proof that they're sent from God, and not that they're Gods.


6. i don't mind if Jesus did a sin or not, i love him anyway. Infact this is one of the big differences between Quran and Bible. Quran manages to talk about the Prophets as holy persons. We don't care whether they did sins or not, we only care about the good message they came to tell us. and again, making a sin doesn't make u bad if u regret and ask for forgiveness, then you are as good.
However, the bible in my opinion destroys the image of a 'prophet'. Prophets in the bible cheat and lie.
For example a prophet i guess it was Jacob or one of his sons, sorry i don't have my bible copy now, cheated on his father with the help of his mother, in order to take his blessings which were meant to be for his brother.
Another prophet i guess Lot slept with daughters when he was drunk!!!!!!
A lot of other examples. So this doesn't make them any idols to me, unlike in Islam.

Prophets in Islam came to say a message to the people, they had a purpose, but i didn't read anything in the Bible talking about the message the prophet came to say.
So why were they prophets in the first place??

Ah another question, You say Jesus came to remove the sins of the people who are all sinners.
How about the people who lived before him?
I think then it's more logic what the Islam claims about the prophets giving messages to the people about believing in the one God, which means the prophets were muslims. This make the people living before Muhammad also believing and good people.

7. There is a comparison between Adam, Eve and Jesus in terms of how they came to earth. i already told u that.

8. I believe the bible is not true cause i compare it with the Quran and i see a big difference in Everything. The Quran is a complete book that talks about every single thing in this life and the afterlife.
While there are a lot of things missed in the Bible, for example it never mentioned anything about the Homosexuality, unlike the Quran.
The bible prohibits the divorce, which is not practical, and leaded a lot of people to divorce inspite of what the bible says.
But people who believe in the quoran don't have to face such a situation in any aspect in life.
Besides, as i said before there is nothing in the bible that convinced me that it's a holy book. I felt that it's just stories written by people, but not proven in any way.
By this i'm not offending anyone, i'm just stating my own opinion.

Thank you very much
