Wise words as always from Mr David Wood.This expert talks about critical thinking.
We already went thru the context of this verse. Didn't you notice?As I said, the surrounding verses make it blatantly obvious that you are promoting ideas that it is not.
This is what The_Fisher_King posted about it:
"The Byzantines - with a vastly superior force at their disposal compared to Muhammad's Arabs - were re-occupying territory following a peace treaty with the Sasanids. Muhammad (pbuh) sent an emissary to the ruler of Bosra in peace; this emissary was executed on his way there. This was effectively a declaration of war, Muhammad (pbuh) responded appropriately, and what became known as the Battle of Mu'tah occurred."
I said the same thing paraphrasing the same story but I corrected some obvious errors in the interpretation.
The killing of the emissary was not a declaration of war and the Muslims attacked the Byzantines and not the other way around.
Is that enough context for you or you have some more context to add to the discussion?
Quran 8:39 obviously is a Quran verse and not a Hadith and it talks about killing people in it. The truth is right in front of your eyes, why is it so hard to accept it?They used primarily Hadiths which are in contradiction to what the Quran says.
That is Mr David Wood for you. A known Christian who has studied the Islamic scriptures with profound attention to detail that today makes him as knowledgeable as the best of the Islamic Scholars.Who is this idiot?
Do not underestimate his wealth of knowledge in the topic.
