I came upon an Islamic website today that provides vast resources for refuting both the claims and teaching of Christianity and the Bible upon which it is grounded. I must admit that I was amazed by the thoroughness of their refutation of the Bible, especially that portion of it that deals with the science of textual criticism and it application to the text of the New Testament and its sources. Indeed, it discusses the individual papyri, the dating of them, and even their individual contents, listing them and discussing them one by one. And they quote in detail Christian scholars and their conflicting views regarding details of New Testament textual Criticism. They also provide a bibliography for the study the textual criticism of the Qur'an with many of the entries going back to the 13th and 14th centuries. This website follows up their bibliography for the study the textual criticism of the Qur'an with this paragraph: They also include this request: Individuals of the Islamic faith are studying the Bible on the same level that it is studied in our finest Baptist seminaries and making the results of their scholarship known to Muslims around the world, including the United States and other Western countries. If our pastors don’t hit the books and study the science of textual criticism so that they have a firm foundation for why they favor one variant reading in the Bible over another, those of the Islamic faith will be able to discredit them right and left and make them appear to be very ignorant of the very Scriptures that they preach from the pulpit. Those pastors who maintain the KJO mentality will find themselves the subject of disdain and ridicule in their own churches. And as the Islamic laymen take advantage of their educational websites and learn how to refute the Christian faith and the Bible upon which it is grounded, we shall be in trouble if our own laymen don’t get more serious about our Bible and the Hebrew and Greek texts that it is translated from. The Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the inspired word of God, but they don’t have their heads stuck in the sand, and we shouldn’t either.
