..continued from the thread "salvation" and "enlightenment".. Not really. The Bible is a collection of scrolls from various authors. The Bible canon was not decided by God. I understand that many Chrstians believe the Bible to be "revelation", in the sense that its authors were inspired by G-d, and G-d rightly guided everybody responsible for its existence. However, this belief cannot be substantiated academically. I believe that the Bible is based on truth. Take the gospels, for example. They are authors that reported what Jesus said and did. This is equivalent to "hadith" in Islam .. we don't say they are the word of G-d or 100% accurate. They are accounts which while reliable, might leave room for doubt without cross-referencing with other manuscripts. I don't believe that the Qur'an is the word of G-d because He says so I believe its the word of G-d after contemplating its contents, confirming the previous prophets in the Bible. It doesn't matter. Let's consider when the Qur'an might have been altered/corrupted What evidence do we have that it is different from a Qur'an of say, 1000 years ago? There is none! What you are basically saying, is that it got corrupted over the first 200 years. It is certainly possible that people remembered it differently, and it was written down incorrectly, and in a subsequent time some Qur'ans were destroyed and others kept. This also assumes that any Muslim who challenged another was silenced. OK so let's say this actually happened. What particular verses have been changed? The ones that disagree with the Bible? No .. Muslims have known from the beginning that G-d is not 3 persons. So do the Rabbis.
