You're right. Muslims get so offended if someone calls Muhammad a fraud. Yet they have no problem condemning the Bible as a fraud. They live in their own little world."
and i replied with:
especially when the koran tells them that the bible is real, both books, and tells them to study it; [5.68] Say: O followers of the Book! you follow no good till you keep up the Taurat and the Injeel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord; and surely that which has been revealed to you from your Lord shall make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; grieve not therefore for the unbelieving people.
it means, unless you study both the toroh like the jews, and the gospels like the chrisitans, islam will avail them nothing! and why? arab pagans where so far fallen, they need all 3 is the most acceptible, but it means you haver to accept the ligetimacy of the koran.
personally, it think it's just more confussion found in a book of confussion. no one needs to study the koran and you don't really need to study the torah, all you really need to satudy is the gospels.
the torah is interesting and the truth is, what ever wisdom you have on any subject is increased by studying the torah.
i study it. but i study it with the jews the way they do. once a weeks in a synogague on saterday but here's an even better way to get it all.
join the catholic church.
ever mass has a reading from the new testament and the old testament which is based upon the the portian of the torah being studied that particular sabboth by the jews.
or you can be like me, a person who left the catholic church when it left latin and became 'a wandering jew' and wandered through the various religions out there until i became a fallen catholic and more of an unorthidox christian, had some personal revelations that lead me to torah study, returned to vatican 2 and discoverd what they had done.
