But what about the good stuff? How do they compare? Here's a summary:
|Number of good passages|
So the Bible has nearly four times as many good verses as the Quran. But then it's about 5 times as big. Here's how it looks when size is taken into account.
|Good Stuff||Total verses||Percent|
So when expressed as a percentage of verses, the Bible and the Quran are about equal. About 1% of the verses in each could be considered good.
At least I consider them good; you might disagree. Is Leviticus 19:18 ("Love thy neighbor as thyself.") good? I think so, but that's just my opinion. How about Quran 5:32 ("Whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.")? I think that's good too. But each person must make up his or her own mind.
I'll try to delve into this a bit deeper in a future post.
