The Main Problem
Since Allah allowed his previous Revelations to be corrupted by weak human people, thisleads to one of the following assumptions about Allah:1.
Allah is a
god; he could not protect his previous Revelations. He also gainsmore power and might throughout time, because he supposedly is now able to protecthis last revelation, the Quran.2.
Allah does not care about people being misled by counterfeit revelations. And yet hewill still punish individuals with hell fire because they follow a corrupted Messageeven though they may have not come to the realization that Allah had allowed it to becorrupted. That means Allah is
.In light of the above, how can we trust that the Quran is preserved if these three Revelationsare corrupted? How can a person trust that Allah did not fail to protect his so-called finalrevelation, the Quran, when he was too weak to prevent people from tampering with hisprevious Messages?Maybe Allah needs to a send a fifth revelation? Perhaps he has already sent down this fifth

More importantly, how do Muslims reconcile their position with Allah’s claim in the Quranthat “there is no changing the words of God”?
Muslims, you have to make a decision and choose one of these alternatives:1.
The Quran is preserved and the earlier Revelations are corrupted
. In that case, Allahis either weak or he is unjust. That is the only explanation for his preservation of theQuran and letting people corrupt his previous Revelations.2.

The Quran is corrupted but the earlier Revelations are preserved.
Obviously, youshould then abandon the Quran and read the Bible.
