The Qur’an Compared to the Bible




1.   The Nature of God.  According to the Qur’an, Jesus is sinless (Sura 3:45,49), but not the Son of God (Sura 4:171).  According to the Bible, what is wrong with this belief? (See Psalm 2:7-12, Luke 1:35 and Romans 3:23)


2.   The Nature of Man.  According to Islam, the chief problem with sin is the temptation that comes from the world. Therefore women must be completely covered so they can’t tempt men.  According to the Bible, what is wrong with this belief? (See:  Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 5:19, James 1:13-15.)


3.   The Nature of Revelation. According to the Qur’an, those who believe the Bible, but not the Qur’an (which was written much later) have twisted the truth (Sura 39:26; 3:78). What does the Bible say about those would change, add to, or take away from the Bible?  (See Deuteronomy 13:1-3, Galatians 1:8, and Revelation 22:18,19)


4.   The Way of Salvation. According to the Qur’an, “he whose scales are heavy (with good) shall dwell in bliss; but he whose scales are light, the Abyss (Hell) shall be his home.” (Sura 101:1-11)  According to the Bible, what is the problem with trying to get to heaven on the basis of your “own righteousness”?  (See Romans 3:10-24 (Ezekiel 33:10-11))

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

Then hide all money and all valuables so that people won't be tempted to steal; stay silent so that you won't make someone angry and risk violence. Veiling women by law is a stupid concept.

Note:
The other night I woke up and the NT scripture came to mind that contrasts Ishmael with Isaac.

GAL 4:21 Tell me, you who want to be under the law, are you not aware of what the law says? [22] For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman (Ishmael) and the other by the free woman (Isaac). [23] His son by the slave woman was born in the ordinary way; but his son by the free woman was born as the result of a promise.

    GAL 4:24 These things may be taken figuratively, for the women represent two covenants. One covenant is from Mount Sinai and bears children who are to be slaves: This is Hagar. [25] Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present city of Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children. [26] But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother. [27] For it is written:

  "Be glad, O barren woman,
    who bears no children;
  break forth and cry aloud,
    you who have no labor pains;
  because more are the children of the desolate woman
    than of her who has a husband."

    GAL 4:28 Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise. [29] At that time the son born in the ordinary way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. [30] But what does the Scripture say? "Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son." [31] Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

GAL 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Prayer: Father, we ask that you would help us to care about those in the Islamic world in such a way that we would freely do for the truth what they are enslaved to do for a lie.  Jesus, you are The Way, The Truth, and The Life.  In Jesus name we pray.  Amen.

From a Biblical viewpoint, we need to understand that a relationship with God is very different from a grading system where an "A" does not really mean a perfect record, but only that we achieved the percentage required to attain that grade. Everything changes when we speak of a personal relationship rather than an impersonal relative standard. Imagine a husband coming home from a business trip and saying, "Honey, I had ten times in which I could have been unfaithful to you and nine times out of the ten I was faithful." Well, as we all know, at this point the relationship is broken, it will never be the same again. There is a separation, which the Bible tells us is the consequence of sin. In the same way, when we sin against God we are separated from Him and there is no sense in trying to make up for our willful wrongdoing with good works like the husband who tries to buy off his wife's pain and hurt with some act of bribery. There is nothing that the husband can do to make up for his sin.  The only solution possible comes form his wife’s side of the relationship.  If she chooses to forgive him it will be because of grace.  Similarly, God has chosen to forgive us unconditionally, and in so doing he also gives the Holy Spirit to guarantee the success of his self-sacrificing love. God does not want the “good works” we might use to buy him off, but instead he offers forgiveness based on his unconditional love.

so i don't think God will ever stop forgiving them cos they kill if God permit them to do so and we the christian should fall back to God and beg for forgiveness in any way we have sin.
