"I really don't see where does God of Bible contradict with God of Quran. Can you give me an example?"

Many of the ideas in the Quran are stolen from the Bible, so there are many surface similarities, but there are many contradictions as well.

I do not choose to make muslims my enemy, but they oppose the truth of Jesus Christ (the only name by which we must be saved, according to the Bible), and as I am a proponent of that truth, they oppose me. Islam and all other religions are so far removed from true Christianity that it really is blasphemy(which can be forgiven) to put them in the same category. It is far more than 2 billion people that are deceived, my friend. The number is probably closer to 6.5 billion, or the majority of the world, hence "the god of this world" who is the same god that is worshipped by everyone who is not born again, whether they know it or not.

"When I say your scholars, I am talking about real Christian scholars who take a part in compiling the RSV of the Bible."

These men are apostate, and not real Christians, although they claim to be. The RSV is based off the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts that were promoted indirectly by the Catholic church(read Revelation 13 for a good description of the RCC) and did not come into widespread use until the last century. These manuscripts contradict themselves many, many places. In english, God's word has been preserved in the form of the 1611 King James Version, which is a literal, word-for-word translation of the Greek Textus Receptus and the Hebrew Masoretic text.

"And all of them agree that Jesus didn't spread the message to worship himself. But to worship God Almighty. The God of the OT and NT."

That's because they don't pay attention to God's Word, which makes it very plain:

Joh 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

These men obviously do not believe His words.

Now on to the quran:

"God will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts; and He is Oft-forgiving, Most Forbearing." Surah 2:225

What does the one true God say about oaths?

Jas 5:12 ΒΆ But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

Legalizing murder

"O Apostle! rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding." Surah 8:65

What did Christ say? "Do violence to no man"

Luke 3:10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Historical errors:

The story of Noah and the flood

  1. The Quran in Surah 11:42 & 43 says that one of the sons of Noah refused to go into the Ark and was drowned in the flood, while the Bible says that all three sons of Noah went into the Ark with him and were saved from the flood (Genesis 7:7).
  2. In Surah 11:44 the Quran says that the Ark came to rest on top of mount Judi, While the Bible says that it was Mount Ararat (Genesis 8:4).

  1. Abraham's father, according to the Quran, is Azar (Surah 6:74), while the Bible says that his name was Terah (Genesis 11:26).

  2. The Quran states that Haman lived in Egypt during Moses' time (Surah 27:4-6), while the Bible says that Haman lived in Persia during King Ahasuerus time (Esther 3:1).

The story of Mary (the mother of Jesus)

  1. The Quran states that her brother was Aaron (Surah 19:28), while the Bible says that Aaron lived 1300 years before Mary (Numbers 26:59).
