    I believe that all core sacred monotheistic texts are profitable for scripture unless they outright plainly deny the Christ. This even goes for a few writings that are generally seen as polytheistic yet in actuality show themselves to ultimately glorify One merciful Creator of all existence.

    These writings include but are not limited to the Bible, Quran, book of Enoch, the Torah, the Zend Avesta, writings ascribed to the Baha'i faith, the Gita, upinishads and other writings.

    Let the fun begin.

    This is why God's UNtruth is an antichrist just like popsthebuilder who quotes from the Quran.

    This is what John is talking about.

    1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

    1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

    2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

    Jesus' spirit is the Spirit of the Father come as a man.

    God came to die for the sins of the world.

    Please try to understand that though one believes core texts to be inspired by GOD; that in no way whatsoever correlated with a belief in whichever sect or division the book may be associated with.

    Does that make sense to you?

    Believing a book to have knowledge and truth and to have been inspired by GOD is not the same as following any particular sect, division, or religion.

    If so then we are both guilty of being associated with any and all sects of Christianity.

    So many people can get a Bible and know for themselves.

    I know there are still people who live under fear and can't get a hold of the Bible, but that surely is not your problem.

    Let's speak about people who can search, who have access to many books.

    That would be you and me, and probably everyone who comes to this site to post.
    It was your questioning friend, but that is fine.

    And?

    Are you going to answer?

    Let's talk about people in free countries who have access to books.

    How about that?

    Very good verses showing that Jesus was wholly man.

    (The Quran indeed repeatedly states that Jesus is / was the Christ so what is it you are up to? Whatever it is it isn't honest. Not a good way to start for you is it? That's rhetorical by the way.)

    1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

    ( Good thing the Quran nor me nor gt deny that Christ came in the flesh; she said specifically that Christ/ the spirit of GOD came in the flesh as do i, and which is reiterated in the Quran)

    The early church identified books appropriate for reading in the church, and these were technically canonized, and there were additional books that were views]ed as valuable but not canonical.

    Even Paul quoted pagan writers.

    And Jesus quoted scripture that is not in the current canon.

    Actually there are multiple canons from ancient times. I prefer the canon of the Church of the East.

    That said, there are documents that some consider sacred that are composed of lies. My copy Quran, for example, explicitly denies the deity of Jesus Christ.

    Different versions surely have different levels and forms of bias.

    I like the Etheopian Coptic because it has the book of Enoch

    Odd. It should explicitly say that the word of GOD was given to Jesus and that He is of the closest to GOD
