Call to Ban Bible Bothers Pakistan’s Christians

This should truly bother my Pakistani brothers and sisters in Christ. They are trying to ban the Inspired Word of God!! (words in Italics)

6/07/2011 Pakistan (Worthy News)-Pakistani Christians are troubled by a Bible ban from radical Muslim clerics whose own prophet had never outlawed it. Nevertheless, Muslim clerics recently asked the Supreme Court of Pakistan to rule that some scriptures have been added to the Bible and that they violate the Islamic nation's blasphemy laws by depicting biblical figures revered by Muslims as flawed; they allege that these additions were inserted to show the prophets guilty of "a variety of moral crimes, which undermine the sanctity of the holy figures."

The reason why Muslims are so offended at some of these biblical stories is due to their doctrine of all the prophets being sinless, which is an irony in and of itself (this will be covered in another post, if the Lord Jesus Christ allows me to do so). Another reason is for their twisted and perverted minds.

Although Muslims accept the Pentateuch, the Psalms and the Gospels, many believe the rest of the Bible is a "corruption" of the original texts. Naveed Walter, president of Human Rights Focus Pakistan, said Islamist clerics "usually attack individuals, groups, churches and communities of Christians, by falsely accusing them of blasphemy, but this time they are planning to ban even the Bible in Pakistan."

A final irony concerning all this is that the Muslim holy book, the Quran, commands Muslims to read the Bible!!  I feel a series of posts coming on.
