[quote=godsent]“The reason why belief in Islam is important on all believers (of God) is because Islam is the last faith, which is uncorrupted and unchanged in it’s original texts. It is the final and complete law”
Could someone please explain to me why this passge is wrong,saying that islam is the final chapter etc?
Its really frustrating when i dont know the answer!..
Explaination much appreciated!
From what I understand that’s a fair statement of Islamic teaching. In a way they have an advantageover us. We (most Christians) would admit that the OT consisted of oral traditions before it was written down, and there are variant texts of the NT. According to them the Koran has existed since before time and was given to Mohammed all at once, so there are no such problems for them.
Muslims are SUPPOSED to be tolerant of Jews and Christians as “people of the Book”, i.e., recipients of God’s previous revelations. They DO insist that the Koran is God’s last word and any religion that comes after it is false and its followers are infidels.
I would turn that around on them. Since the Church says that God’s public revelation ended with the death of the last Apostle any “scripture” like the Koran that comes after the NT is utterly false and definitely not from God.
