Islam’s Idioms

God’s literal Son is considered blasphemous! Says the Qur’an
Should you believe Christ is God, is one of the unforgivable sins!
Says the Qur’an Ref: † Qur’an: Sura 5:73, 78 vs. ‡ NT Bible: John 3:16, 18, 10:36-38
Jesus was only a messenger. Says the Qur’an (Sura 34:59)
Jesus was only a servant of Allah. Says the Qur’an (Sura 19:20, 34)
All of course in contradiction to what the New Testament Bible scholars say… (The Fathers and Doctors of the Christian Church)
The Muslim says: “The Jew and the Christian will never be pleased with you until you follow their way” (2 Cow)
But so does the Muslim, feel this way!
The Muslim says: “The Jews says: ‘The Christians are not right,’ and the Christians says: ‘The Jews are in the wrong;’ says the Qur’an.
But in a like manner, the Muslim, criticizes the Jew and the Christian too
For the very same thing!

The Dhammapada says: “The wise one, the insightful, and the learned, having the virtue of enduring, being dutiful, and noble…such is the wise one, he whom to live is pleasant, as in a gathering of relations. (Ch. 5/happiness)

“Glib people” says Confucius, “are worthless” and he adds “…men of narrow views—these are things I cannot bear to see!” And, “one who is free to choose among the good, but does not prefer to live among them, can they be considered wise?” (Analects of Confucius)

I say, Pride comes before destruction! And I stole that from someone too, and I can’t remember when or who!

The Rig Veda says:  “Herein, O Honest One, is thy true greatness, that soon as one is born thou drunkest soma (love)” (Hymn XXXIII)

I would like to quote the Tanaka (from the Kethuvim), it is how I feel about this whole religious untidiness: 
“All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full; to the place from which they flow the streams flow back again.
…No man can ever state them; the eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear enough of hearing.”
