    “Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the house of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. (v32) So they feared the LORD, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places.  They feared the LORD, and served after their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.  Unto this day they do after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel; With whom the LORD had made a covenant, and charged them saying, Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to the: But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him ye shall fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.  And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do forever more; and ye shall not fear other gods” (II Kings 17:29-37)! 
    Matthew 24:14 says “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and the shall the end come!” 
    Isn’t this happening?  Missionaries are going into every nation preaching the gospel!  How many more prophecies does one have to see “fulfilled” before “believing?”

    All writings, scripture, fiction childhood fables and all, are inspired by the same source.  Look at "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things," doesn't that suggest all things is from god?  Having a name meaning I AM THAT I AM also suggests it.

      ALL things "created" (means made) by GOD; not "inspired" (means to "move or guide" by divine influence).

      God made their minds want to write why they wrote therefore they are god inspired also.

      God made atheist minds want to write too but doesn't mean "God inspired!"  Why we need Holy Spirit to HELP us discern LIES!

    It is a poorly correlated set of stories ripped off from the Bible and Torah, hence the confusion of Mary mother of Jesus with Miriam, sister of Moses, as well as contradictions throughout.
    And that's totally aside from the 80% of the text that justifies land piracy, rape of captives and their sex slavery, killing the infidels who don't convert and doing so in a terrifying manner to scare others into converting or paying booty to the Islamic leaders.

      ALL "Religions" are "Spin Offs" from Bible!  Bible Holy Spirit "inspired" (II Tim 3:16) and NONE have as many "accurate" fulfilled prophecies as Bible!  That in itself should prove GOD INSPIRED BIBLE!

    Dear,PhoenixV. When you asked this question 2 days ago, I wasn't sure what actually did you meant. I thought, whether inspired by other source or to be inspired by it.

    After I read comments below, I may understand it now. But, I'm not sure whether 'inspired' is the right word to describe it.

    However, what I do know about Quran is the words are definitely from Allah-the god and creator. I believe that the story of the angel gabrael/jibril revealed the Quran to messenger of Islam, Prophet Muhammad is true.

    The quran contains the truth and guidance for mankind.While reciting or listening to its recitation can make our soul feel calm.

    This is not just my opinion and I'm speaking as other Muslim. By the way, I typed your question in the search engine. It seems there are a few websites about it. Maybe, you'll find your answer here. Or if not, you might want to ask other people out there instead =]

      THE GOD of Abraham, Issac and Jacob (THE CREATOR) said in Rm 3:4 "...Let GOD be true, but EVERY MAN (Prophet Muhammad) a liar..." 
      Spin Offs from Scripture is what has caused the world to be in turmoil!  Don't let "man" deceive you!  II Tim 3:16!
