This is what I call double standards, Seeker.<quoted text>
Not the earth, the sky.
It doesn't have to. The sky can only be raised ABOVE the earth if the earth was flat rather than being a ball that is surrounded by the sky.
This is figurative. Everybody knows that you don't see all Kingdoms from a mountain and they knew that back then, so its obviously figurative.
Yes, I have a real problem with that verse and I'm not even sure if the book of revelation should have even been added to the Bible. But, if one chooses to, they could make the excuse that he was interpreting his wild visions the best way he knew how. But none of that book is written like it is God himself talking to you like the Quran is, it is someone's wild visions who 'supposedly' was inspired by God.
So how come its so easy for you to see a problematic verse in the Bible and yet you are completely blind to all of the problematic verses in the Quran? And what is knocking the Bible supposed to do to defend the Quran?
I'll be back in an hour or so. Think your answers through very carefully.
When it comes to Bible, everything becomes figurative. When it comes to Qur'aan, you guys go literal through English, as if Qur'aan has no figurative and metaphorical language. This is hilarious.
I don't find any verse in Qur'aan problematic, because I understand it in Arabic.
What is good for the Christian goose, is also good for the Muslim gander!
