That's fine, I respect that

Looking for the truth is a long way, but it needs people with good hurts and courage's thinking like you.

God's words should be true all the time, whether 1400 years ago or now. Sultan believes that verses about Polygamy, Wife beating, Hijab, Killing infidels and Violence do not apply to today's world; I believe that these verses also don't apply to any time or anywhere, even 1400 years ago.

A logical conclusion is that if these verses don't apply to the current civilized world, then Quran can not word from GOD, because God's words should be good all the time and should apply everywhere.

Sultan suggests that not only him but so many other Muslims follow the nice verses from Quran and ignore the verses that encourage killing, uncivilized relationships and violence.

Like many other liberal Muslims, Sultan believes in GOD and wants to continue spiritual relationship with GOD, and he has trouble understanding why Christians claim that Jesus is son of GOD, so obviously he is not considering Christianity as a religion of his.

According to Muhammad, Islam is not only a religion it is a way of life, Quran is one package that can not be divided, valid everywhere and all the time until the Day of Judgment. So Muslims can not pick and choose what they think it is right from Quran. It is all or nothing.

So, according to Islam and Muhammad the founder of Islam, Muslims like Sultan can not call themselves Muslims any more

So many others conclude that Quran can not be from GOD, and Muhammad was not an example of a prophet.

Muslims with good heart like Sultan are starting to question Islam but don't want to loose their culture, part of it Islam.

My last statement to Sultan, if you are asking for a good courage's man to reform Islam, then why don't you start with reforming your believes of Islam as a religion or Muhammad as a prophet.

I suggest that maybe you should consider learning other religions like Christianity and understand that who is Jesus and why Jesus is divine with a divine message to humanity. Also understand that son of GOD doesn't mean that God had a wife and delivered a baby. Actually Muslims themselves believe that Jesus is "Roh Allah" Spirit from GOD and also believe in Jesus' Miraculous birth from Virgin Mary.

Thank you for your patience
