Pakistan: Kid of Courage Stands “Alone”

Most of the people in Pakistan are Muslims. Muslims follow the teachings in a book called the Quran. The teachings in the Quran do not agree with the teachings in the Bible. However, the Quran speaks highly of the Injil (New Testament), which was written hundreds of years before the Quran.

So Muslims have a problem. The Quran says the Bible is good, but the Bible does not agree with the Quran. For example, the Bible says Jesus is the Son of God who offers salvation from sin to those who believe in Him and follow Him. The Quran says Jesus is not the Son of God and that people are saved by doing good deeds.

Muslims solve the problem by saying that the first Bibles were true. But they say the Bible has been changed and is now not true. They do not know, or do not understand, that early copies of the Bible have been found. The early books prove that there have been few changes in the Bible over the years. The message is the same in the early books and in the Bible today.
