but the Qu’ran says the opposite … “THE BIBLE IS NOT CORRUPT!”

There is a repeated claim by Muslims, that the Bible has been corrupted and that the Qu’ran is the only trustworthy scripture in existence.

This is why Muslims often attack the Bible.
However, your average Muslim is only repeating what he has been told, but this cannot be according to the Qu’ran.
The Qu’ran says that the five books of Moses, the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy), the Psalms, and the Gospel were all given by God … as follows:

THE TORAH: We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers” (Sura 2:87)
THE PSALMS: “We have sent thee inspiration, as we sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob and the tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.” (Sura 4:163)

 THE GOSPEL: “It us He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and he sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong)” (Sura 3:3)…  also
“And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that has come before him: a guidance and admonition to those that fear Allah.” (Sura 5:46)
We see that the Qur’an states that the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel were all given by God … and with this, we Christians heartily agree. But, the Muslims claim that the Bible is corrupted and full of contradictions.
But if that is so, then it would seem they do not believe the Qur’an, since the Qur’an says that the Word of God cannot be altered:

1. “Rejected were the messengers before thee: with patience and constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of Allah. Already hast thou received some account of those messengers,” (Sura 6:34).

2. “The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfillment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all,” (Sura 6:115).

3. “For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme felicity,” (Sura 10:64)

When Muhammed (570-632) was alive, he claimed to receive the revelation of the Qu’ran from Allah.

This means that at that time the Bible, which was in existence, could not have been corrupted because the Qu’ran states that God’s word cannot be corrupted.

 The question I have for the Muslims is as follows:

“When and where was the Bible corrupted since the Qu’ran says that the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel are from Allah and Allah’s words cannot be changed?”
Your average Muslim is only repeating what he has been told and may find it difficult to answer the following.
1. “When the Koran was written, why would it endorse the Christian Bible, as it does, if the Bible was corrupted?”
2. “Why is there no mention in the Koran that the Christian Bible was corrupted?”
3. “Why would the Koran speak about the Christian Bible in positive terms if it was corrupted?”
4. “Why did it take till AD 1000 for Islam to come to this conclusion … that the Christian Bible was corrupted?”
5. “Who corrupted the Christian Bible?”
6. “At what point was the Christian Bible corrupted and why?”

The reason this question is asked is because when Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was preaching between 610 and 632 AD (AD means after Christ), he claimed his new Quran was identical to the Bible.

After Muhammad’s death, Muslim scholars came into contact with the Bible for the first time.

When they read the Bible, they discovered a huge problem in that the Bible and the Quran contradicted each other.
They began to argue that the Bible had been changed and altered, hence the differences … however, this was not the case

The book of Isaiah, written around 700BC, was found in a cave near the Dead Sea, and it had been perfectly preservedword for word.

Today, The King James Bible, also called The Authorized Bible, agrees word for word with the Dead Sea Isaiah scroll.

In fact, all the books of the Old Testament were written a long time before Muhammad … with the last one being Malachi around 420BC.

Their big Misunderstanding is that the Qu’ran supercedes … that is … was written before  the Old Testament and the New Testament … it was written after.

Follow this up with the following:
1. If you died tonight, where will you spend eternity – heaven or hell?
2. Heaven? Why would God let you in?
3. May I show you what the Bible says about all this?

 The Christian gospel is very simple:
All other religions say heaven you get to heaven by good works.
Christianity is the only religion that says … “It has nothing to do with
our works.”
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Christ has shed his blood for our sins … “…for without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins.” (Hebrews 9:22
