A Pack of Lies

Over at Christdot, a thread popped up about a free copy of the Koran (Quran). Being interested in apologetics I decided to grab a free copy in order to systematically dismantle it’s teaching. When I did so I was presented with a page telling me the response has been overwhelming and they’d get the order to me asap. Ok, I can live with that. But to let others know what I was doing, I responded to the thread and made what I thought was a simple comment: “…Evidently the quest for free lies has been enormous.” Immediately I was pounced upon (small surprise) for calling the Koran a lie.

Is this not most frequently our problem? Is this not where we find ourselves too often? Let us make this day our prayer that God will slash and burn all my other masters and will himself unite my wayward and weak heart to fear him alone. Then true wisdom can begin.
