Do I believe in the Qur’an?

My view of the Qur’an

I believe that the Qur’an (the original text free of diacritic marks and other accretions) is from God. I am persuaded on the basis of evidence that he has protected that text.

However, I believe its contents have been systematically misrepresented for over 1,000 years in order to imply support for a religion which is absent from the Qur’an. That religion has its roots in history, politics and culture, not in revelation.

The religion which claims the Qur’an as its holy book is debunked by a systematic rendering of the Qur’an.

Religion – in the sense that we use the word today – is a form of idolatry, and the Qur’an is opposed to it.
