Dear Peter,

You wrote that "it is obvious you are cutting and pasting from a web site".

When information is self-descriptive I simply say "I copied that" honestly. If It requires I can give source of information so that people can get whole picture. Who has time to read so many versions of Bible, except researchers who supplied us to use them. I can assure you it was not a Islamic web site.

You wrote that
"Do not speak about verses you do not know from the Bible."
They were not verses but record of wives of earlier holly people, which are self-descriptive. Deny or not they were so.

You wrote that
"It makes your lack of knowledge very evident." How can I be expert on Christianity of Judaism?
If someone talk about my religion I have more to say. That's it.

You wrote that
" Islam cannot remedy the sin issue."
You confuse Islam with Christianity. We Muslims are responsible from only our good or bad actions. Muslim don't have the concept of "divine sin". How can be a remedy for it?

I haven't replied your previous email yet. But I will do it a few days later.

Here is the answer for your question
"If you died today, where would you go?"

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) (1:4)
This verse is from Surah Al-Fatihah that Muslims repeat it their at every prayer. In our daily life we never forget that Allah will judge our deeds.

You think that Muslim prayer is very repetitive. That is not completely true. Some parts are repeated for the sake of having a pattern but some others are not. All we are supposed to recite short verses from Quran. Prayer is practiced five times a day. The main idea behind it is organisation of life and awareness the value of time. Let me give a simple example. Muslims are not supposed to watch TV or sit in front of a PC whole night or day. He/she should take a break and pray and continue if they want. Isn't it good?

You wrote that
"I am ready to give up because you are not open to the Bible."

If you you trying to convert me to Christianity, Please give up. This will not going to happen.
I prefer talking to non-Muslims just to increase tolerance among people.
