The Koran: A Jail of Perfection
- Note how, in the Bible, God never speaks through the prophets.
Unlike the Koran, God speaks to his prophets (including Paul and the
Disciples). God's words are revealed to them, instead of channeled.
The Word of God and the words of men intermix during intense
visionary experiences---visions that, by their very nature, are
distinct unto themselves, humanized. Because the prophets and
disciples interjected their own "I" into their visions we have a
collection of unique and individualized testimonies inspired by God.
Their uniqueness is due to the fact that each apostle, each disciple,
each prophet is himself unique, expressing a well-defined level of
consciousness; each gospel, in fact, represents a different mode of
thought, a different way of approaching God; whereas with the Koran,
there is only one way. We are not reading the Prophet Mohammed's
words in the Koran; we are reading the infallible word of God coming
directly through Mohammed's pen. The Koran is without a human "I".
Therefore the Koran cannot be interpreted organically. It has a
built-in theology that is unchangeable, hindering all attempts to
personalize the message from generation to generation as human
society evolves through the Ages. The universal nature of the Koran
holds Islam in the "infallibility and perfection" of its own words.
