Daniel: I am getting really tired of you and others putting words in my mouth, I find it really un-Christ like and not something Christians should do, it is basically lying and misrepresentation of a brother in Christ.
But, Dan, these are YOUR words:
They were called to war because they kept getting invaded, other than that they are meant to be peaceful, they only killed infidels because they wouldn't leave them alone.
What is written in the Quran, the passages my linked info detailed, is indefensible. Not to mention that Muhammad lied and said they were from god himself. And you are asserting that it had to do them being invaded. Well, clearly those paying obedient attention to those words are killing and have killed countless thousands precisely due to the teachings in the Qur'an. And they did it LONG after Muhammad wrote those words. And yet you defend the words by saying they were merely meant to be defensive and that the words in the Qur'an are basically peaceful. But those words are evil, no matter who wrote them or why. And your words ("... they only killed infidels because they wouldn't leave them alone.") - well, some were killed defensively, but make no mistake, they also killed then as much as they do now, largely because of the evil instructions in the Qur'an - let's not forget that the Muslim killing fields did not end with the conquests of Muhammad. And he did not stop at defensive actions - that's revisionist crapola!
Daniel: The Koran was written at a time of war, which gives context to the passages and most Muslims realize this and that is why they are peaceful people.
To be sure, not ALL Muslims are violent. But an increasing number of those extremely aggressive and violent are precisely so because they are driven by the lies in the Qur'an, believing them to be from Allah. Daniel, it's the violent teachings and those following them that have brought hell to earth. This has been historically true as well. It's a simple fact of history! Not to mention they are also killing each other over which version of Islam - whatever grandson of Muhammad various groups are adhering to. Millions of Muslims don't know the Qur'an much better than many so-called Christians know the Bible. Islam is compulsory. It's is so zealously violent that anyone publicly disagreeing with the Qur'an, renouncing Islam, or embracing Christianity will receive death. And the mullah's and the extremists take the Qua-ran at its literal words (when it comes to violence) - which are not difficult to interpret, as they are extremely clear! So don't try to defend what is written as just understandable and meant as defensive language at a time of invasion - that's ridiculous!
For ANY Christian (not picking on Daniel) to defend the words found in the Qur'an, well, that's really wrong, and dangerous. And that's very different from defending Muslims whom are peaceful - as many clearly are.
Daniel, you do believe that the Qur'an is completely false and contradictory of the Bible, don't you? Please don't play the victim if you defend one shred of what is written in the Qur'an - not on this forum! Defend peace-loving Muslims all you want. But please don't shred history by asserting that Muhammad and his followers only wanted peace and to be left alone - then or now. An enormous amount of blood then and after Muhammad, has been shed my murdering Muslim hordes.
