The Christian missionaries tend to make the general conclusion that the Qur’an cannot be a text of divine origin because of the unacceptable meanings included in it.Perhaps they are correct in this conclusion and we may be inclined to agree with them due to the following reasons.
Every Christian believe that they should do good works, that they should follow the law of the Prophets. However they do not believe that a man can be justified by the good works.
“For all who rely on doing the works of the law are under a curse, because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the book of the law.” Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous one will live by faith (On Jesus). But the law is not based on faith, but the one who does the works of the law will live by them. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us.”
Galatians 3: 10-13
The above-mentioned teachings and belief of the Christians are based on Paul’s teachings and the New Testament, which are against the teachings of Old Testament.
In studying various topics about Christianity and Islam over the years I will never forget an article I came across on the topic of racism. It was called: “Children of a White God” and the author was Matthew C. Ogilvie. I remembered that the majority of slavery in the United States had been justified by Christians in the past, but certainly, I thought, this was over. I thought this was just the ignorance of poorly educated Christians of old. But as I read the words in this mans essay, I began to realize that indeed, there were several Christian sects who taught racist theologies to this day, and such theologies resulted in countless acts of terrorism in the world.
The Bible endorses homosexual behaviour and we shall provide one such example which is exemplified in the story of the relationship between Daniel and the prince of the eunuchs.
The verse is:
“Vayiten ha-Elohim et-Daniyel leKHesed u’leraKHamim lifnei sar hasarisim” (Daniel 1:9)
[i.e., “Now God had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs” (KJV).]
The Hebrew words, which describe the relationship between Daniel and the prince of the Eunuchs, are “KHesed” and “RaHamim”.
Was it on the seventh day or on the tenth day? According to 2 Kings 25:8-9, the “House of the Lord” was burnt down on the seventh day of the month:
“And in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month … burned the house of the Lord.”
Yet, we are informed in Jeremiah 52:12-13 that the temple burned on the tenth day:
“Now in the fifth month, in the tenth day of the month … burned the house of the Lord.”

3. Evidence: more than 50 verses either omitted or added, hundreds of others changed
