How do you deal with the other passages I mentioned? And what do you think of the passage that mentions the kingdom of God with reference to the immediacy in the change of physical bodies in the following passage?
1st Corinthians 15:50-53 "I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality."
How do you deal with Jesus's use of the old testament as an authority if you don't believe it is reliable?
What do you think of the passage where Peter classifies all of Paul's writings as "scripture"?
2nd Peter 3:15-16 "And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures."
How did you come to the conclusion that muslims are correct in their assertions about the Bible? I don't think they have much basis in their claims other than they presume that the Koran is infallible and use it to dictate where they think the bible is wrong(not the best argumentation). Have you considered that anti-christian scholars like Bart Ehrman who exaggerate corruption of the bible say that what we have today is basically the same bible as the original documents and that the (supposed) corruptions would not result in a different religion than if we had the original documents?
I also appreciate open dialog and don't mind when people disagree with me. Thanks for keeping it civil.
