Top 10 Missionary Tactics
Indeed in our current day, Christian missionaries are working harder than ever to try and win over Muslim converts, so therefore I thought it would be helpful to point out the top 10 tricks that these missionaries apply to try and trick the Muslim over to their side.
Tactic # 1: The Quran says the Bible is true and not corrupted
This tactic is becoming one of the missionaries most favourite argument to use, that the Quran calls the Bible the truth, and that it is un-corrupt. Indeed the implications are obvious, if the Quran calls the Bible true and uncorrupted, then we should become Christians and believe in Jesus’ death amongst other Christian beliefs. It must be said though, that the reason why missionaries are using this argument more and more is because they have literally lost all hope of converting mass amounts of Muslims through the Bible, Christian missionaries know that most Muslims simply don’t buy into the Christian doctrine, or the Bible, so the only resort they have is to try and use the Quran to try and convince the Muslims into believing the Bible.
So now to the argument, does the Quran actually confirm the Bible, the present day one we have? Off course not, the Quran confirms the ORIGINAL Bible and revelation given to Moses, Jesus, and the other prophets. All major textual scholars have agreed that the Bible contains no original manuscripts, that all the manuscripts are copies of copies of copies of copies of other manuscripts, the originals virtually do not exist nor will they ever pop up. So with that said, the Quran does not confirm the present day corrupted Bible, as I said, it confirms the original revelations given to the prophets.
The Quran does call the present day Bible as being corrupted, starting with the Christian scripture:
YUSUFALI: That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
So notice, according to the Quran the Christians follow nothing but conjecture, corruption, and I ask, what do the Christians follow? They follow the New Testament, this is the book that claims that Jesus died, and rose from the dead, the Quran calls this corruption.
What about the present day Jewish scripture? The Quran says:
YUSUFALI: Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say:”This is from Allah,” to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.
So according to the Quran the Jews wrote their own writings and then claimed it was from God. Lastly, here is what Ibn Abbas said regarding the both the Jewish and Christian scripture:
Ibn ‘Abbas said, “Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah’s Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, ‘It is from Allah,’ to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!”
