Links Daily Devotional

Links Players president Jeffrey Cranford argues that the Bible and the Quran cannot be read the same, because the Bible alone features the progressive plan of God.

The Bible and the Quran

Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith. (1 Timothy 6:20-21, NIV)

Suffice it to say that the time is right.

Presidents, pundits, and people on the street are all saying the same thing: “The Bible and the Quran are essentially the same. You’ll find ugly, murderous passages in each. So we must be careful not to judge.”

Judgment comes in more than one form, however, and the kind of judgment that weighs the facts and discerns with the wisdom of God’s Spirit leading the way must be a hallmark of God’s people in Christ.

So today, rather than offering our usual full devotion, we present a special 10-minute video, titled “The Marked Difference Between the Bible and the Quran.” If, after viewing the video, you are interested in an in-depth look at current events in the Middle East through the lens of the Bible, you may wish to listen to Jeffrey Cranford’s current series of teachings at our flagship Links Fellowship, the Red Door Community. Those lessons, which are still ongoing, are available here.
