in response to reader comment: If only Qur'an 9:28 were so clear cut and simple

In one of the more compelling explanations of why many adherents of Islam cannot reconcile their belief system in contrast to that of an individual believing in Yeshua HaMashiach, the misunderstanding of the later Islamic belief system did not (not does not) adhere to the Judaic concept in Messianic belief of the Holy One of Israel.
For reasons in trying to justify not believing in Yeshua HaMashiach, the simple intellectual argument is in saying that the Holy Scriptures are corrupted and not to be trusted. But the caveat here: which spirit of men were being tested with the translations that may actually be suspect before catagorically rejecting them.
Are we not subjected to the similar contraindications of who translated the Quran in classical Arabic versus Quranic Arabic? All requires supernatural discernment before any can be trusted, both in determining which are infidels and which are in rebellion altogether and face similar judgement for not getting it right.
FYI -this observer takes His Deity seriously in the witness that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the Holy One of Israel are One. The proof is in the belief.
