Changing Scriptures



Changing Scriptures

Mohamed wrote, "Woe betide those that write the scriptures with their own hands and then declare: ‘This is from Allah,’ in order to gain some paltry end.  Woeful shall be their fate, because of what their hands have written, because of what they did.!”

Al-Baqarah     The Cow 2:79


(Then he proceeds to rewrite the scriptures and change the story so it is not even recognizable.  He gives no evidence or reason, but only demands blind faith and obedience).

Another Gospel

The Bible warns us to guard against people coming with another gospel, spirit, another Christ and another Jesus.

2 Corinthians 11:13-14, Galatians 1:6-8


The Bible gives both evidence and reason.

The Koran coming 690 years after Christ, puts forth another Gospel, another Christ, another Spirit, and another Jesus, fulfilling Bible prophecy.

Changing Scriptures

If We abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or one similar.  Did you not know that Allah has power over all things?

Al-Baqarah     The Cow 2:106


Changing Scriptures

Who is more wicked than the man who invents a falsehood about God or denies His revelations?  Such men shall have their destined share, and when Our angels come to claim back their souls they shall say:  "Where are your idols now, those whom you invoked besides God?" 

"They have forsaken us," they will answer, and will confess that they were unbelievers.


He will say:  "Enter the Fire and join the communities of jinn and men that have gone before you."

Al-A’raf      The Heights   7:37-38


Changing Scriptures

When We change one verse for another (Allah knows best what He reveals), they say:  “You are an impostor.”  Indeed most of them have no knowledge.


Say:  “The Holy Spirit brought it down from your Lord in truth to reassure the faithful, and to give guidance and good news to those that submit.” 


We know they say:  “A mortal taught him.”  But the man to whom they allude speaks a foreign tongue, while this is eloquent Arabic speech. 


Allah will not guide those who disbelieve Allah’s revelations.   Woeful punishment awaits them.


None invents falsehoods save those who disbelieve Allah’s revelations:  it is they that are the liars.

Al-Nahl    The Bee    16:101-105

Do not add or subtract

The Bible says not to change the scriptures.  Deuteronomy 4:2, Deuteronomy 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, Ecclesiastics 3:14,  Revelation 22:18-19


Deuteronomy 4:1-3   NKJV

4:1 "Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I teach you to observe, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers is giving you. 2 You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take anything from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.


Deuteronomy 12:29-32   NKJV

29 "When the LORD your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, 30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, 'How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.' 31 "You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. 32 Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.


Proverbs 30:5-6   NKJV

5 Every word of God is pure;

He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.

6 Do not add to His words,

Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.


Luke 8:12    NKJV

12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.


Revelation 22:18-19    NKJV

18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
