  1. It is not clear to many why the WTC was bombed. Some say it was out of hatred for American politics and some say it was for religious reasons. The Muslims that did this are they in paradise?
  2. Surah 5:46

    So, if it confirms the Torah and other books; we still have the first five Books of the Bible and they are the same today as they were during the time of Muhammad right?
  3. This is a good point God said "do not follow other gods." Even during pre Islamic history there were some 360 deities. Muhammad singled out Allah saying he is the only God, It is true that people can make gods of other people, money or other things, but God saying there are other gods and not to go after them is significant. Since you use to be Muslim, have you ever heard that Allah was once one of the 360 deities who took over for Hubal the moon god? do you know if it is true that the crescent moon plays a part in this? Any Muslim or ex Muslim can answer this please!
  4. If your referring to the Bible scholars know what the interpolations are. That doesn't mean wholesale corruption. Interpolation and translation errors are correctable. This is no reason for us Christians to disregard the Bible. That is a fearful thought!
  5. Surah 5:46

    So what your saying implies that man's corrupting power is greater that God's strength to preserve His word as He promised. It is written that thy word is established in the heavens forever. Forever would include today too. Was there a divine mandate that the Quran should have be written? Doesn't Quran mean recitation? Wasn't it designed to confirm the Scripture that came before?
  6. It is an interesting concept I never heard a Christian bring in the perspective before. I need to search that out. I always thought of it as the Holy Spirit because doesn't it say that the comforter is the Spirit of truth who will always be with you. Paul isn't always with me accept his world in the Bible maybe. For me he makes a better commforter than Muhmmad. But you got me wondering. How did you come to that conclusion?
  7. But aren't you going against the Quran? Doesn't it say that previous prophets must confirm the newer ones? Do you know thhe verse I am referring to? And doesn't it ask us to challenge the Quran if there be any discrepancies?
  8. It's All About Me

    Big Bang - umh, I tell the atheist: Yea, I believe in the Big Bang; God spoke it and Bang it happened!
  9. It's All About Me

    Sorry, I meant to say I know you wouldn't disagree that God exists regardless of our different views.
  10. I never heard that before, but I could believer that a lot easier than it being Muhammad.
  11. How? We need prophets and scripture to confirm Islam; otherwise, Christians can't accept Islam. The burden is on Muslims to show Christians why we should believe the latter over the former Scriptures. Saying the Bible is corrupted doesn't cut it. If God couldn't protect what He said is established in heaven forever (the written word before Muhammmad was born) than why would we trust newer Scripture as being preserved by Allah? Muslims are telling us that mans' power to corrupted God's word in the past is stronger than God's power to protect from corruption today. God is the same yesterday, today and forever! Isn't He???
  12. It's All About Me

    LOL, Sure, all I was trying to do is make my case that God exists. I know you don't agree with this
  13. Why Was The Wtc Bombed?

    I will answer your question, This is a classic example of how it ties together. Jesus said, "My God, my God why have you forsaken me?" because, Jesus became sin for us; He became a curse for us because all our sin went on Him. This broke fellowship with Him and God. God turned His back on Him for a short time as stated in the OT. Isaiah 53 ties it together even further along with the other stories and there are more OT stories that tie it together even more that I haven't shared with you yet. When we receive Jesus, we become the righteousness of Jesus and stand prefect before God. Our sin on Him His righteousness on us; that is the hope of glory and why we know we have eternal life. I am not saying this to preach, but I share a reason for the hope we have within us and what the Scriptures say regarding Jesus, His relationship to the father and ours with Him. When Jesus prayed asking God to let the cup pass him; he was more distressed about breaking fellowship with His father than suffering on the cross, but that opened the door for us. This is what Christians understand from the Bible
  14. Exactly, very good analogy. Satan according to the Bible is the father of all deception and he would try to cause deception that would lead billions to hell. He wouldn't hesitate to masqurade as God or an angel of God either. No Muslim seems to think that he can do such a thing among those I speak with. Why don't you tell me what you think leads to people worshipping Jesus, because this obviously not what Satan wants us to do according to the Bible? The only way to stop Jesus worship is to get us to believe Jesus didn't die for our sin and rise from the dead. Satan must serve God's purpose or he wouldn't let him stick around. Angels were commanded to worship Jesus. Angels are greater beings than us on earth so go figure. Peace
  15. It's All About Me

    The triangle didn't but you did, before you created it. So you prove my point and make my case!
  16. No. it wouldn't mean I was a moron; it would mean I misread what you wrote. Do you know the difference between a moron and a mistake? Why are you so rude?
  17. Didn't Allah know what the future implications of this deception would be with some muliple billions of people believing it resulting in shirk punishable by hell fire forever?
  18. Why Was The Wtc Bombed?

    The OT and the NT tie together to give a clear picture. For instance, When the children of israel were complaining, they were being bitten by vipers and dying by the thousands. Moses held up a serpent in the wilderness. When those being bitten looked at the serpent lifted up they were saved from death. That serpent represented Jesus because Jesus became sin for us so His righteouness could come on us when we accept Him and His work as we behold Him. Another OT story is when they thirsted God told Moses to strike the rock and the people did drink. Later, they thirsted again. God told Moses to speak to the rock. Moses didn't obey but that rock was God illustrating who Jesus is (the Rock of our salvation). Once the rock was smitten, Jesus doesn't need to be put to death again all we have to do is speak to the rock to receive salvation (water of life) speak to the rock means pray to the Rock (Jesus) This is how we Christians understand the Scriptures. So didn't Allah know that leading the Jews to believe Jesus died would result in the world believing this? If yes, why would he allow this deception to the Jews? If not, whay not?
  19. It is not Just Jesus dying, but it is Jesus' dying for our sin as the Scriptures state in the Bible, but it is not just that alone; it is the belief that Jesus rose from the dead and the testimony of those that have seen it risking their lives to share it. It leads to the belief, IMO, that if Jesus was made to look like he died; it was also made to look like He rose from the dead. Christians worship Jesus because according to the Scriptures, He is the Word that God spoke all things into existence with.This is not a partner it is God's Word according to the Scriptures! Why don't you answer my questions?
  20. So you are admitting that deception was involved? Then didn't Allah know what the future implications of this deception would be with some muliple billions of people believing it resulting in shirk punishable by hell fire forever?
  21. It means deceiver in Arabic. Now many Muslims admit this; so , why do you deny it? Why aren't Muslim consistant on the meaning of the Quran in its original language? How do you explain Allah making it look like Jesus died resulting in the deception of Billions of people's belief regarding His death and resurrection? My contention is the real deception is not getting them to believe He died, but getting them to believe He didn't; so, they would not trust in Jesus' life and death/resurrection for the salvation of their souls. The Bible states that the Devil is the father of lies. No one is better at deception than him. In my opinion, Satan is the best at deception not God! If God allows deception, it is to bring evil upon the heads of those who do evil and not to deceive all people of earth that Jesus died when He didn't!
  22. Why Was The Wtc Bombed?

    Jesus said "If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me." What do you think He meant by being lifted up? Jesus mentions that He must die and be resurrected. He did say this is my body and blood given for you. I have answered your questions; so, why do you care what the Bible says if you don't believe it anyway?
  23. He said, "... as my eyes were closed and my hands were together palms up I felt as if my soul was being lifted up somehow." i would like to bring your attention that our feelings make a wonderful servant/slave but a very poor leader. I have notice that Christians that convert to Islam usually have a testimony like I felt good inside or it was the only religion that made sense to me, But Muslims that convert to Christianity have a testimony that goes beyond feeling or metacognition. It is often like Paul's experience on the road to Demascus. Jesus knocked Him off his horse and asked Him "Why are you persecuting me?" Paul converted not out of feelings or his own human reasoning; he had been with Jesus. When this happens conversion to other than Christianity is an impossibility!

  24. Why Was The Wtc Bombed?

    You asked where it said that and I answered your question! The Bible was written by men inspiried by the Holy Spirit (God)I said nothing about drinking or eating blood friend. Do you remmember the Passover? It involved the putting of blood on their door post to be spared from the death angel. As i mentioned, in what way are you cleansed from past, present, and future sin? Even if I did good the rest of my life; it wouldn't make up for my past sin. It is like a large plate of good food put over just a little left over poison. It will kill me just as if it were full of all poison. Sin according to the Bible is like that. God is just; my sin needs to be paid for. I need something outside of myself to save me or pay a debt I can't. A drowning man cannot save himself. I was a drowning man. My faith and God's grace resulted in my salvation. This is what I believe. I believe Jesus paid my debt with His shed blood as the Bible states. If I owe money and can't pay it, I can allow someone to pay my debt. I did, but how will you pay for yours, if you are broke and owe??? Why are you trying to ridicule me? peace
  25. Why Was The Wtc Bombed?

    Heb 9 22 And according to the law, I may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission. Lev 17: 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes atonement by reason of the life. In what way are you cleansed from past present, and future sin? Even if I did good the rest of my life; it wouldn't make up for my past sin. It is like a large plate of good food put over just a little left over poison. It will kill me just as if it were full of all poison. Sin according to the Bible is like that.
