Other than a cut and paste job, do you have anything else to add to the discussion?

Seriously, unless you include some substantive discourse, someone is going to read the first two quotes that you site, scan and see it's all more of the same and skip it.

Additionally, quoting Islamic texts that portray their religion in a bad light without drawing a corollary to texts from other religions that show that they DON'T espouse those views is pretty useless.

Worse than being just a cut-and-paste job, it is a cut-and-paste job from a website that did a pretty bad (out of context, misquoted, leaving bits out) cut and paste job on the Quran.

PS: Your example of a thing that is in the Quran and the muslims don't do it (the bit with the boiling water), is a bit misunderstood. The Quran isn't commanding muslims to burn the kafr (not exactly the same as unbeliever, but that is another point) with hot water, it is saying that is what waits for them in hell.

And to be fair, the 624 commandments that you say the Christians are not following is because they are part of the OT law which Christ is supposed to have finished.

The Bible can't even be argued if its the word "of" God or not... much less which part we should listen to now or not. If the Old Testament shouldn't be followed why even bother to have it out there. With 38,000 denominations obviously it's not a clear answer.


Only fundamentalists and Conservative Jews believe that the Bible is inerrant.

Christians are reconciled to God through the person of Jesus Christ, not through the Bible. For Christians, the Bible shows Christ's teachings (the New Testament) and the ancient prophesies that testify to his divine nature (the Old Testament.)

Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and the rest of the Torah are Jewish Law. Christians are not subject to Jewish Law, so your point should be taken up with those who are, who are Jewish, not Christian.

There are 38,000 "denominations" (if there are -- claiming "google says so" is pointless) it is because of doctrinal differences, which do, indeed reflect interpretive differences, and the vast majority (I'd say maybe a thousand are "significant") represent schisms where a pastor takes umbrage with something and goes off to create the "New Methodist Church of the Lessor Antilles", him and ten others who agree with him.

At its core, though, Christianity is maddening simple, but we've managed to muck it up over the years.
