The issue is final authority.

If God is defined in any scripture, the testimony of the Holy Bible with its many writers and one author scribed in complete harmony over 4,000 years regarding the entire history of man and the universe, start to finish, easily trumps as final authority a one man declarant (Mohammed) document of recent historical vintage (aka "The Koran"), a document without prophetic quality whose author had no idea where he was going after death. By its terms, the Bible rejects any worship of any other than the Son of God to reach the Father--sorry, pope, no divinity of the virgin Mary there. Therefore, the testimony of a self-declared "prophet" that rejects the virgin birth, death and physical resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (all matters witnessed and recorded as historical fact) cannot be taken seriously by any seeker of God. As final authority, the Koran fails the ancient scriptural tests for historical accuracy (from which it freely borrows, without attribution), most notibly in its substution of Ishmael for Issac for sacrifice to placate the generations of the "wild man" of Genisis 16:12 .

Can the Koran then be said to accurately anticipate the return of God to his own creation? Of course, everything is equal if there is no final authority other than one's own opinion scripture notwithstanding, which opinion you may be forced to confess as truth under penalty of execution by your fellow man.

Can you say "Jihad"? Things different are not the same. Be not deceived. 1 Cor. 6:9; 15:33; Gal. 6:7.
