Hi Harrak

Looking forward for more questions from you, I'll do my best to be at your great intellectual level

I am a bit puzzled though with your posts and would appreciate some assistant from you please

You said
" I can not deny other good and positive ideas that I am convinced with and do not neccesarily match yours."

You have said that you are not pro Islam, obviously you are questioning Christianity and at times you were cheering for Amir who was pocking Christians and Jesus. I am a bit confused so please help me out here. You believe in Jesus as similar to GOD in his cause unlike Muslims who believe in Jesus as a prophet but less important than Muhammad. I have been answering your questions, but I think it is fair to provide me a chance to ask you questions, however I can't do that until I know what your position is

I am really interested in knowing what your ideas are or at least what religion do you believe in, I know that you inherited Islam but do you consider yourself a Muslim? If so what are the things I said that you still have problem with. I know that you have been skipping some points out of respect, but trust me, I will not be offended with any comment, idea or question you have

You said
" However, in the issue of contradiction and so on..Christians will always have an interpretaion based on allegory, analogy, reviveness etc.. which is good. We should also allow Muslims and Jews and all other cultures to express them selves and respond to critiques using the mentioned three elements. "

My answer

The bibles don't have contradictions, the translation of the bibles were not done out of translations but out from the original scripts, I think Richard has answered what sounds like a contradiction with regards to Joseph's fathers name. And I provided you with links "URLs" that explain what Muslims call contradictions in the bibles.

Correct me please if I'm wrong, I have a feeling that you haven't read what I have sent, if you did then please tell me what are the things that you don't agree with

As you may know, the bibles were written by several trusted and holy men, in different timings and different languages supported by about 5000 manuscripts, recent discoveries of manuscripts proved the authiniticity of the bibles, historians and secular (non Christians) researchers compared these scripts to each other and found that they are 99.5% consistent. The reason we believe in the bibles is not only because of its authenticity but also because nothing in them provided any benefit to their writers, on the contrary it provided misery, torture and death. I may be wrong, but I observed from your questions that you haven't discovered what so called "contradictions" from reading the New Testament because a copy of your list I found in an Islamic Web site, again I may be wrong.

Peace be with you
