The Quran says, “For those who conceal that which We sent down of clear scriptures and admonitions, after we have revealed them to the people in the Scripture; those God will curse, and the cursers will curse.” (Sura II:159) God commands in the Bible saying: “Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed… Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet… Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Isaiah 6:9, 58:1; Mark 16:15) For this reason, we feel the obligation to share with you the truths of God.
THE MUSLIM BELIEF
The average Muslim believes that the Bible has been tampered with; thus it was altered or changed. When you read this, it will be proven to you that the Bible could never have been tampered with. Both history and the Quran testify to that fact.
THE HISTORICAL PROOF
This historical proof lies in this question: Was the Bible changed before or after Mohammed? Of course, the Bible could never have been tampered with before the days of Mohammed; otherwise, Mohammed would have attacked it. Instead, Mohammed honored the Bible, and emphasized that it was the Word of God. He admonished the world to read it, saying: “You stand on nothing if you do not uphold the Torah and the Gospel.” (V.68).
If you believe that the Bible was changed after the days of Mohammed, then consider the following: At the time Mohammed came, Christianity was spread throughout the known world, with many denominations. The question arises: For the benefit of which denomination was the Bible supposed to have been altered? Was it for the benefit of the Catholics, the Orthodox, or an independent denomination? Would the denominations agree to the altering of the Bible in favor of one special denomination? Was it possible for the Jewish sects to submit to the altering of the Bible in favor of Christianity? The answer is clear: That was impossible. If the traditional Christians could alter the Bible, surely they would have eliminated the verse says: Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.” But they could not. Besides, by the seventh century, there were thousands of Bibles circulated in the churches of all denominations, in every tougue and in every nation. There was no way they could have collected all those copies of the Bible to alter them. Also, a large number of those Bibles still exists in museums, and they are in complete harmony. Therefore, anyone who claims that the Bible has been tampered with is a person who ignorantly denies historical facts and values.
THE QURAN TESTIMONY
The Quran testifies in many verses in favor of the Bible and its infallibility. Let’s look at several: “…But they have the Torah wherein there is guidance and light by which the prophets judge.” (V:43-48) “And we have given Moses the Book, and followed up after him by messengers, and We gave Jesus the Son of Mary clear scriptures, and We upheld Him with the Holy Spirit… And We gave Him the gospel wherein there is guidance and admonition unto the godly.” (II:86) The Quran also emphasized that the Bible is the Law of God, which cannot be changed, when it said, “The Law of those whom We sent before thee (i.e. before Mohammed), of Messengers, and thou shalt not find altering to Our Law.” (Surahs XVII:77, XXXIII:62, VI:34, XXXV:24 & 44)
The Quran describes the Bible as “Guidance and light unto the world; a message and admonition unto the Godly; the ordinance and the judgment of God.” How then can a man, whether they are a Muslim or anyone else, dare oppose the very person of God? When Muslims say that the Bible has been tampered with, they are directly accusing God of not being mighty enough to preserve His Word and His Law. The question for you is: Are you ready to stand before God on Judgment Day and charge Him with that accusation?
THE BIBLE MESSAGE
I repeat the Quran statement: You stand on nothing until you upheld and believe the Bible message. The Bible tells us that all people are sinners. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23). This means that every sinner is condemned to Hell. No man can save himself, and even his good works are as filthy rags in God’s sight.
For this reason, you are in need of a Savior. The Bible states, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) “All the prophets testify about Him that everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His name.” (Acts 10:43)
God promises, “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) “Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God:” (John 1:12) Now is the time for you to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Please accept Him today!
“Dear God, I admit I am a sinner. I know that I cannot save myself, I repent of my sins and put my faith in the blood that You shed for me on the cross to pay for all my sins. I now accept You as my Lord and Savior and trust You to take me to Heaven. Thank you for saving me. Amen.”
