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. (And this at Christ dot not allah dot.) So I responded with a brief discourse and ended with a proof of the Koran being a book of lies.
Here, for your viewing pleasure is the abbreviated reply I made: “…I am a Christian, I believe that the Bible is God’s only inspired word. The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is THE son of God -born of a virgin. Jesus lived a life just like ours in function but void of sin; in other words he was perfect in every respect. He is the complete embodiment of perfect God and of man. When he was in his thirties he was nailed to a Roman cross and thus murdered for any imagined slate of reasons – but not for his own sin. He was nailed and murdered for mine.
He was buried.
On the third day Jesus came back to life and left the grave forever.
To those who receive him (on these terms), to those who believe on his name (including his character and authority) he gives the right to become children of God.
To summarize: It is truth to say that Jesus is the Christ [messiah], the son of God.
Therefore, any writing which denies this truth is a lie. Now, to quote from the book of lies:
“# [4.171] O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak (lies) against Allah, but (speak) the truth; the Messiah, Isa [Jesus] son of Marium is only an apostle of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three. Desist, it is better for you; Allah is only one God; far be It from His glory that He should have a son, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His, and Allah is sufficient for a Protector.”
There it is, the Koran denies that Jesus is the son of God. Therefore: the Koran is a book of lies.
And that’s the truth.
Truth is still truth, even if you don’t believe it.”
