Prophets - Sinful Beings in the OT Bible  

In the Bible, Prophets are often depicted as people who made mistakes as any other person.

In Islam, all prophets are honoured and held in high regard. Muslims are forbidden from speculating on any sins or errors prophets may have made. Therefore, Muslims reject the Judeo-Christian Bible due to its textual corruptions and disrespectful attitude towards God's finest creation, his blessed Prophets.

The table below lists Bible verses that highlight, and almost glorify, the sins committed by prophets.


Abraham
Idolatory
Abraham was raised in a society where worship of other Gods was prevalent. Even Abraham's own father was amongst those committing idolatory. It is possible that before Abraham was called by God, he engaged in idolatory.
And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
Balaam
Unrighteous
Balaam succumbed to greed and other sins that lead him away from God.
Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
Animal Cruelty
Balaam was guilty of animal cruelty.
And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.
And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.
In Error
Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
