Qur'an to Jesus in 3 hops

by SteveSchlichter on Sunday, August 2, 2015 9:29 AM
I often wonder how different my beliefs would be if I grew up under different circumstances. Am I a Christian because I was raised by Christians. What if I was raised by atheists or by Hindus. Would I come to the same conclusions that I arrive at now? 

I have even made attempts, in the past to clear my slate (as best I can) and start from scratch. It is important to examine our own beliefs. Why do I beleive in God? Why do I believe Jesus is God? If I start over, would I re-assemble the same construct that I have now or would it look differently? While we are (admittedly) incapable of entirely setting aside beliefs, one can attempt to imagine different starting points in life and explore the reasoning under the beliefs we hold. Imagine that you were a Muslim (are perhaps you are). If the Qur'an alone was your starting point then where would it guide you?
