Mahdi's job is to bring out the ridiculous of the Bible for us all to see. Then we all chuckle at his humourus posts. Sometimes he has a point, but I don't believe it originated from him, just a by-product of being a cynical Muslim, ;)
you can only chuckle if you bury your head in the sand and choose to ignore the inconsistencies in the Bible.
It does not matter where my points originated as long as they are valid/true.

Yeah, well the stories are Israel's experiences and it was written according to what they believed. For example, although they don't give much details, they say that Solomon did evil in the sight of God. But in the Quran, its clear that what they had judged as evil, God had given Solomon permission to do.
 
Actually, there is quite a bit of detail but you'd have to read it yourself. I know the Quran does it's best to clear all prophets of any wrong doing, yet at the same time records prophets asking for forgivness for their wrong doings. Interesting how that works.

Prophets were humans, they were also teachers. Their asking for forgiveness shows their humbleness as a human being in front of God. We all seek God's forgiveness because everything belongs to God, not to anyone, not even to the prophets, even they had to seek and ask. And prophets were teachers, their asking for forgiveness, engaging in far extensive worship and prayer was an expression and natural act a humble man of God has for his Creator. It was also an example for their followers to see what it is required of a true believer. They were the best of mankind, examples to be copied.
They knew that as humans we can make mistakes knowingly and unknowingly and a true believer is never arrogant of that fact and seeks God's forgiveness over and over and never thinks that he/she don't make mistakes. That's a true beleiver, a true Muslim.
