This is not a subject that interests the common or even most of scholars. But the consensus seems to be that the word of God is pre-eternal.
Interesting! You believe the "word of God" is pre-eternal. Now when you use the term "word of God" you don't literally/factually mean that there was an invisible Holy Koran somewhere in the sky/outerspace do you? You mean by "word of God" something that transcends the physical cosmos. Something that is beyond our comprehension. Something that God "speaks" although God doesn't really have a literal mouth, voice box, tongue so that He could "speak". Am I right? Or do Muslims take these metaphors literally as though God was a space alien from another world? I'm asking for 2 reasons...one because I really do not know and would like to know. And two, there are some Christian sects which do pretty much see God in this way, as though He were another "being", just bigger and better than us. But a "being" none the less. But that is not historical Christian teaching, regardless of how Televangelists claim it is.
I find it interesting that you believe the "word of God" is pre-eternal. We to also believe the word of God is pre-eternal. For us though, the word of God became a man, Jesus the Christ. It's that simple
. if you can believe the word of God in some sense "incarnated" into the Holy Koran, and not consider your self as seeing God as a "Duality" why cannot we accept the Trinity? Surely you see the slight double standard here?
I actually think, when Muslims and Christians stop using caricatures of each others beliefs, we often find we have far more in common than than we first assume. At least that is my opinion. But when you have been told Christians "believe in 3 gods" or that "their god is not complete" and when Christians have been told that Muslims believe this or that thing, it's hard to see past what we've always been taught to see what is really the teaching of the Church, or other faiths. Anyways that's my two cents . . . .
