    Quran's Mistakes

    There are many errors in the Quran; many, many, many errors in the Quran. And I say that from
    a ten-feet view point. For instance, when the Quran said that the earth was flat, that was a mistake.

The authenticity of the Bible

 

Q2. Host: Can you prove the authenticity of the Bible? (9:12)

Answer

References

Dr. Labib: First of all, I have said on many occasions that the Bible is like a piece of gold. You don't need any proof from the outside to prove that it's a piece of gold. Take a piece of gold to any jeweler and say, "Is this gold?" In one second, he'll look at it with his glasses, and say, "Yes, this is 24K gold." And the Bible is like a piece of gold. It doesn't need any proof from outside, but with that I would say that the Bible has so many evidences about its authenticity. And I would say the first book, the first evidence of the first proof, is the prophetic proof. You go through the Bible, and you'll read prophecies that were recorded 1,000 years, 2,000 years, 500 years, and it was declared and it was fulfilled to the letter, to the letter! All the prophecies in the Bible were really fulfilled to the letter. The prophetic proof is one proof that the Bible is the authentic word of God.

The second is the scientific proof, and I mean that in the Bible you will have many scientific proofs. Well, the discovery that the planet Earth is a circle, you know, before Copernicus, Galileo, the Catholic Church said, "No, no, no! Planet Earth is flat!" And when Galileo said it is a circle, they said, "No. You are a heretic!" But the Bible, before Galileo, in Isaiah chapter 40:22, He said that the planet Earth is a circle. This is contrary to the Quran. In the Quran we read that they do they not consider how the Earth has been flattened out, and that is in surat Al Ghashiah, surat 88, and verse 20. Look at the difference.

Then the discovery that the planet Earth is hanging on nothing. You know, we read in the book of Job, "it stretched out the moors over the empty place, upon nothing. The Earth is hanging on nothing." That is very important to know. The Bible is very clear. And when this astronaut went there, and he saw the planet Earth hanging on nothing, and they asked him, "What was the amazing thing?" And he said that the amazing thing was that the planet Earth was hanging on nothing. Who told Job to write this scientific, geographical thing? God, who knows His creation!

Then the discovery of the effect of the moon. You know, that the moon can strike the person like the sun. No book said that, but the Bible. And in the Bible we read that the moon can strike a man, and in fact, if the man is struck by the moon, he will become insane. "The Lord is thy keeper. The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day. Nor the moon by night." And the word is in Psalms 121-5,6. Amazing! Here is the book of God, and He is telling us scientific things.

Then the discovery of the crushing of the atom, and atomic energy. And the scientific discovery of the science of metrology, concerning the water cycle. And the scientific discovery of the importance of the blood. All these are in the Bible. You don't see things like that in the Quran. In fact, the Quran, in the first surat, given to Mohammed, and this spirit came and said to him, "Read in the name of thy lord who created man from a clot." Clot? What is the meaning of the clot? You go to any Arabic dictionary, and you read that the word 'clot' means frozen blood. Were we created from frozen blood? Totally incorrect, but this is what the Quran says! It's the first surat that was given to Mohammed. And I am not inventing that. Anyone can go to the Quran and read it. "Read in the name of thy lord, who created man from a clot." Man was not created from the clot! Man was created from the dust of the earth.

Then, when we continue and see that there is another proof, and that is the moral proof. And what do I mean by that? The moral proof means that we cannot invent things, or commandments, or standards, over our ability. But the Bible is full, is full, of things that are really over our ability. When the Lord Jesus Christ, in His sermon on the Mount, what did He say? Anyone who looks to a woman to lust after her. What are you saying, a man who looks at a woman who lust after her? He committed adultery already? What are you saying, Lord? Oh, we falling creatures. When we look to a beautiful woman, most probably we lust after them. This is above our ability. This is over our ability. This crime of moral command cannot come from our mental ability. It cannot come from Socrates, it cannot come from any philosopher, it cannot come from Buddha, it cannot come from anyone. And Mohammed didn't even mention anything like that in his Quran.

So when you look through the moral standards of the Bible, you will see that Jesus Christ gave a thing that it is beyond out ability. "Love your enemy. Bless those who curse you. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven." Could we do that without the grace of God? Absolutely no! We cannot. We hate those who hate us. We really want to revenge those who are our enemies. But Jesus said, "No." Love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you. Do good for those who harm you. This is beyond human abilities. It needs the grace of God in our hearts; it needs a change, it needs that the person might be born-again.

I have found this very interesting to read. I have heard many different people prove the Bible's authenticity through different points. I always find it interesting to hear what references in the Bible someone else uses to prove its authenticity.

Where do you find your arguement to be true? This blog gave real evidence of why the bible is true. You can't just say no to something because your beliefs are different. Examine the evidence and dig a little deeper before you say a religion is not fully true. You may think differently still after it, but this site is to expand the knowledge of each religion and give aid to the ideas of each side. You may not agree, but you can at least use tact in your responses.

Brother supermankhan, i knew that u r not studied quran so well. In Hadith sahih Bukhari, Muhammad told that if someone want to know about quran, he should ask these 4 top expert: : Abdullah ibn Mas’ood, Muad ibn Jabal, Salim and Ubay ibn Khab (Muhammad's cousin). Masood said that surah 1, 113, 114 is not a part of autenthic Quran. But Ubay said that there are 2 surrah in quran is missing. If one of these 2 expert was wrong then Muhammad is not a prophet. But if these 2 men was right, then quran is not authentic.Even Aisyah said 2/3 of QS 33 is missing.

Prove that the Bible has only 2/3 original authenticity. Do not believe this to be true simply because you have been told it is so. Research and I believe that you will find the Bible is 100% accurate. Read through it and you will find the truth.

Say's a lot more than that in the book of Job, God says "I sit above the circle of the earth". Well we didn't know that till the 16th century, all science belived the earth was flat and if you sailed far enough you fell off the end.

FAIL!

It was good in the beginning but it became rotten. My friend you were truthful but your blog became in to a lie. No truth no way no how. Lame attempt. Quran is at 100 full points of original authenticity and the Bible is 2/3 of its original authenticity.

The Bible also has a common theme throughout its 40 authors. This is also seen as miraculous. Normally, 10 different authors from different times having the same theme in a book is impossible
Quote

Good job. I enjoyed reading this. Another proof that I think you should join with these three is that fact that there are forty different authors in the Bible, and yet, the Bible has one common theme throughout its pages. Normally, 10 authors from different times having a common theme is seen by editors as impossible. A man who edited books gave his life to Christ because he could not believe that the the authors in the Bible all had one theme.
