Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Anwar: Why Bible is fabricated.

Submitted by Ajay (United States), May 24, 2006 at 04:01

Don't want to offer a point by point rebuttal as it does not warrant the time or the effort...but here are a few in case it makes a difference.

Luke 19:29-34

Response >> It is implied and understood that the owner permitted the use of the colt. Here is a cross reference. Read para 3:
Mathew 21:2-3 says, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."

Btw, I suggest you also read Mathew 21:4-5. There is a purpose behind this seemingly unreasonable act.

Luke 22:36

Response >> Read Luke 22:38. I am not surprised that you reacted like his disciples did :).

Matthew 10:34

Response >> Yes thats right. He has sent a sword, and a double edged one at that too. Go figure out the rest!

Comment:
If you have actually read the Bible and found all these things on your own then you have done a truly commendable job. Unfortunately, you missed the point by a mile!!
Jesus was born,
To die
Die to rise again
Rise again to give eternal life.

Believing in this is an act of faith. To believe in Jesus is of no consequence if you do not live as per his commandments.

Seek the true God and you shall find him, just make sure that your intentions are correct!
