One interesting assertion I have heard several Muslims make is that the Bible is "vulgar" because it describes sin graphically, whereas the Quran does so in "noble" or flowery language. All right. Here is my question: If sin is what separates us from God (the worst thing that can happen), why does it enjoy the exalted status of being described in "noble" language in the Quran? IMO, the Bible does better justice to it, describing it like it is.
