In all the time this observer has spent in this forum attempting to discern why many who think they can pontificate (and this observer is just as susceptible in doing so as any other) on the issue of replacing the Hebrew Holy Writ with Quranic revisionist dialogue or face the retributions as promulgated in Quranic adherence, the one relief had here in Dr. Pipes posts is from that provide by Dhimmi No More.
For quite some time in the journey in early BIblical studies, attempting to parse the verses into understanding the concepts of eternity was frustrating for the lack of not understanding the original texts.
Now, attempting to determine which original text will provide that understanding is even as complex as trying to detemine which Aramaic phrase needs to be understood when deciphering the Book of Daniel.
Then, when looking at the complexity of why one needs an understanding of Aramaic to get to a similar discernment of how the Arabic language was produced and brought into this modern age; and how the Gospel message would be better received if the Quran were not trying to replace that message: it would be so much simpler. So many times, the Quran takes a simple truth of the Gospel message and complicates it.
Thanks Dr. Pipes, for this forum; and thanks again to DNM.
