The Koran says in 51:56: "I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me". If I am created ONLY to worship, what else can I do?
In relation to verse 51:56, you are not reading it fully. Many nations whose examples are used in the quran worshipped other things instead of God alone or along with God. In this verse God tells us that He is the only One who has the right to be worshipped. Now if God made us worship Him without us having the choice then we wouldn't even be having this discussion. But, if you look at the last part of the verse it says might, in other translations it says should or may but these words do not impose a definite upon jinn and humans.
You should worship God does not mean you will.
You may worship God does not mean you will.
You might worship God does not mean you will.
So God created jinn and human only that they may worship Him â€“ This does not limit you. Also the very fact that only jinn and humans are mentioned confirm again that we have free will because all other creatures worship Allah without choice.
Yes you can change your mind but God will know that you would change your mind.
2. if your god knows I will turn left, can I change my mind and turn right?
Well it clearly is a choice because many people knowing the consequences choose to die as disbelievers and are never coerced into believing no matter what warning God gives them.
3. if I am told: you can choose whether you want to believe, but if you don't, I will torture you for ever, I call that coercion, not leaving me much of a choice.
The messengers did not have the wrong language they spoke the language of their people.
4. I was asking whether the messengers were ill-equipped with the wrong language. Did they fail because they could not get where they were supposed to get and if they did, could they speak the right language to make things clear?
Whenever We sent a Messenger to convey Our Message, he delivered it in the language of his people so that he may make it plain to them.
If a person rejects their messenger, the messenger will not bear their sin. You were not created an atheist, everyone was created a Muslim whether you accept that or not is your decision. God gave you a brain so use your knowledge then decide whether you want to believe in God or not. People who follow people who do not believe in God are not innocent people. They chose to follow the wrong way. They had a brain to ask themselves should we really believe this? If you have issues with particular events then start a new thread.
Are you being selective here? I call a son being killed as sacrifice for a god because this god doubts the faith of the father exactly that. Whether the father was ultimately stopped is irrelevant. Killing the entire Egyptian army because the Pharaoh doubted is what I call a good example of others bearing the sins of someone. If I am created as atheist is it my fault?
The quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad pbuh in the arabic langauge. You seem to think the quran was revealed in many different languages since the beginning of time.
And also, if you are right in interpreting the Koran in that way, there must have been a perfect translation of the Koran and the message for every nation to make "things clear". Where is it? The perfect translation in every language?
It is not me who says this it is God. Take for example Prophet Hud pbuh. He was sent to his people with a message from God - this is not a contradiction. He was living his life then God chose him as a messenger. God sent him to his people with the message. God chose Hud because he was from among his people and therefore could speak the language of his people.
YOU are the one saying:
1. "He has sent messengers"
2. "the messengers were from among their people"
I already told you that we do not know the language of every prophet.
And with what language?
