The latest mantra of our Missionary Christians friends, of which they have taken much pride in stating, is the following:
The Qur’an is the most violent book in history!
That’s a very distasteful statement, not only does it generalize the Qur’an, it’s also quite hypocritical and dishonest. You see, the Bible has much more violent passages (as it is a generally larger book as well) than the Qur’an and it’s indeed, much more graphic. However, in response to our missionary friends, I offer one passage. It is with this passage, that I challenge any Christian to find an equitable passage or greater (in severity) in the Qur’an:
However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. – Deuteronomy 20:16.
The challenge is therefore, quite simple. If the Qur’an contains a passage on equal footing with Deuteronomy 20:16, or worse, let me know! Otherwise, our Christian friends would have no choice but to concede that their book is the most violent.
