Is the Bible Credible?

Why Muslims  Don’t Believe in the Bible

Muslims do believe in the original scriptures written by previous Prophets. Yet we do not find the Bible credible.
Why?  – “Original scripture” and “the Bible” are two different things. What do I mean by this? First we have to learn exactly what “the Bible” is.

What is “the Bible”?

Well obviously it is a collection of scriptures. But who is responsible for the  compilation of this collection? Of the 3rd Century – The Great Roman Emperor Constantine.

This prior-pagan worshiper (Constantine), claimed to have a vision from “Lord Jesus”, commanding him to conquer in “his” name. He soon converted to Christianity, and allowed the religion within his empire.

Believe it or not, there were actually conflicts among the Christian leaders. They could not decide which books would be considered “holy” and thus “the word of God” –  and which ones would be left out and not considered to be included as “the word of God”.

How is Constantine Responsible?

Constantine, seeking to unify his empire, offered the various Christian leaders money to agree upon a single canon that would be used by all Christians as the “word of God.” These leaders began by gathering together at the Council of Nicaea and voted the “word of God” into existence. This editing process of the “holy” scriptures wasn’t finished until the Council of Trent when the Catholic Church pronounced the Canon closed.

Who are these people? They are not Prophets ordered by God to “vote” and compile the scriptures together. They have no authority or credibility to decide this, especially when they were offered money to do so. In the end, it seems the real approving editor of the Bible is Constantine.

Is the Bible Credible?

Simply put – the Bible you have in your hands today is a product of greed, and therefore holds no credible authority today. We see further proof of this by added verses within the Bible to fit false teachings.
There are over 45,000 Christian denominations (2014) with completely different teachings and beliefs (they still don’t agree). Yet they all supposedly follow the same book? This cannot be the work of God.

But don’t only take it from me, here are some choice words from an English-American political activist, philosopher, author, political theorist and revolutionary:

"The Pharisees of the second temple, after the Jews returned from captivity in Babylon, did the same by the books that now compose the Old Testament, and this is all the authority there is, which to me is no authority at all. I am as capable of judging for myself as they were, and I think more so, because, as they made a living by their religion, they had a self-interest in the vote they gave." -Thomas Paine

We can now confirm what it says in the Quran:

So woe to those who write the Book with their hands and then say, ‘This is from Allah,’ that they may sell it for a paltry gain. So woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they earn! – Al-Quran2:79

For any verse that We abrogate or remove from memories, We bring another which is better than it, or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah has power over all things? – Al-Qruan2:106

Rather you wish to put questions to your Messenger, as Moses was questioned before. And whoever adopts disbelief instead of faith he indeed has lost the right direction of the way.
Al-Quran2:108

lost books of bible

It is a historical fact that the original scriptures have not been
properly preserved. Not to mention that many important books were omitted from the current Bible today.

Thus, the Quran is the best tool to decipher truth from deceit within the Bible.
