  1. Even in tearing up a Bible True Believers are not to sin in response. We are to follow the Biblical instruction to treat others as we would like to be treated; to pray for those who do evil; to do good to them; love our neighbors as ourselves; and to forgive .

    it is a different belief with different teachings which require different responses than the Muslim faith.

    we do not need to protest, we pray and act like Jesus commanded.
