Some friend at work was telling me that both the Bible and the Quran are similar.
Here are the points he mentioned: in both books:
* Killing infidels (non believers ) was allowed
* Killing was allowed by God (in certain circumstances)
* Stoning adulterers etc
I know in the OT, its all wrath, fire and brimstone, etc.. but - the NT is not that at all. However, we still accept the OT.
What would you say to answer such a person?
Also, I feel that a lot of problems in the west are a result of the fact that many westerners hate the Catholic Church's history and how it behaved towards them in the middle ages. Not only have they lost their faith, but it seems to be a mixture of ignorance of their faith, losing their faith, and embarrasement from being Catholic - not that they care about Islam, but they are more sympathetic towards it than their own faith a lot of times.
Anyway, sorry to go off topic.. please could you highlight the differences between the Bible and the Quran.
