No, they do not worship the same God.

The Christians worship God The Father, God The Son/Yeshua ...
The Muslims do not believe in God The Son.
And God The Father is a very different God from The Judaic/Christian Faith.
Allah is a Moon god, from the ancient mystic religion of Kabbalah.

God did not tell The Christians to slaughter all the infidels ( non-believers in God The Father, God The Son ), conversion by The Sword.

While The Old Testament Laws are similar to Islamic Law, similar, Jews evolved.
They do not behead for non conversion, nor stone people since the days of old/ancient times for breaking Religious Law.
And God did not "tell" believers in Christ to carry out those same barbaric acts.

And don't even bring up The Knights Templar Crusades. The Crusaders were not fighting for a religious belief/faith in Christianity, but for land, to take it back from The Ottoman Empire,( Turkey ), for The Roman Empire.

Agree. Both Judaism and Islam are patriarchal dominated.
As is Christianity to a lesser degree.
But, Christ was the first feminist.
A study on Mary Magdalene proves that. But, the male dominated board of Christian scholars diminished her role as an original Disciple, her importance in The Movement.

So what, Eva Braun, wants to ban books now ?

If you believe The Bible is one of the worst moral guidelines ever printed, then you have to include The Quran. Women have No Rights according to Sharia Law outlined in The Quran.

And Christ's message as a teacher ( not even as Deity ) is powerful.
Love, Equality, Charity, Forgiveness, Justice ...

Want to ban all of those Societal Ethics as well ??

WASHINGTON COUNTY A Burleson County Grand Jury declined to indict the man who shot and killed a Burleson County Sheriff's Deputy who was serving a search warrant in December.

Investigators were executing a search warrant at Henry McGee's mobile home near Snook when the shooting happened.

28-year-old Henry Magee is no longer charged in the shooting death of Burleson County Sheriff's Deputy Adam Sowders.

A grand jury decided there wasn't enough evidence for him to stand trial on the capital murder charge.

McGee admitted to shooting Sowders before sunrise on December 19th while the deputy and other investigators were serving a no knock search warrant for drugs at McGee's mobile home near Snook.

Magee's Defense Attorney Dick DeGuerin says his client thought someone was breaking into his home and fired to protect his pregnant girlfriend and himself.

"Well we feel that the grand jury acted fairly and reasonably and had all of the information that it needed to make the decision that it did. That is that this was a justified shooting and, but we need to say that this is a tragedy," Dick DeGuerin said.

The SWAT Team found less than five pounds of marijuana plants growing inside and the grand jury indicted him for possession of marijuana while in possession of a deadly weapon.

"It need not have happened. They could have walked up to his house in the daylight and he would have let him in or they could have stopped him as he left his house to go to the store," said DeGuerin.

Except every ancient culture recorded that "mythical" flood at the same date The Bible records.

Don't you read anything about History, Ancient or Contemporary?

If you don't believe The Bible is a credible source, THEN read non-Biblical sources.
Like reading any book, you check out the sources The Author cites within his/her writing.

A World-Wide Flood occurred. It's recorded in Ancient Native American texts as well.

And it's recorded in the Geological Data.
Discovered, Identified, and Distinguished within The Earth's Strata.

I thought we were done with Pilate ... All info your post states has already been established on that subject.

Geesh ... I think you just like to argue. And where do you get this non-factual information?
woodtick57 wrote:
<quoted text>that is the myth of the bible, but that same bible says there was a worldwide flood in the times of humans, so it is not a reliable source. now the history of Pilate shows he never would have given the jews any say at all it never would have even come up as an option. he committed treason. he was crucified and his bones were left on golgotha like all the other traitors...
repeating crap from your proven false source does nothing. i have to finish makindinner then i will post some good sources for you to learn about the history of the time. of course, you culd do that on your own if you are interested in the truth....

Sure. How about you liberal journalists doing the same?
lol! Investigative reporting?

Son, it was an interview. And you know how I know this? O'Reilly uncovered nothing. He drew no conclusions supported by any independent information.

But I can see how a reich winger can mistake something out in the open as being 'investigative' and required no work.

When I came onto thread, Religion was the topic being discussed.
So I just joined the debate.
All one can do is post the information.
In this case, on this subject, facts trump opinion.
So I just posted the facts as I have gathered them over my years of studying them.

What anybody does with them, is anybody's choice.

Take Care ...

PS It is refreshing to discuss other topics other than politics all of the time.

Actually, prostate cancer is the number one cancer and cause of death for men and breast cancer for women. Lung cancer comes in second.
Approximate 155,000 deaths were caused by lung cancer in 2013 according to the American Cancer Society. Not all 155,000 were smokers.
Compare that to 1 million deaths yearly caused by heart disease. The causes of heart disease are many including unhealthy lifestyles, obesity, alcohol consumption and eating the wrong kinds of food that clog up your arteries. Smoking is just one of the other causes.
So why aren't you on the PC bandwagon to ban salt, fatty foods, candy, pies, doughnuts, alcohol and wine and forcing people into gyms?
According to the American Lung Association (ALA) "lung cancer is the No.1 cancer killer. It kills more people than breast, colon, pancreas and prostate cancers combined. Each year, about 160,000 people die from lung cancer. It’s the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. Anyone can get lung cancer." "One out of five lung cancer victims never smoked and three out of five do not smoke."

"Lung cancer is called the silent killer, because by the time it is diagnosed, it is often too late to stop it. The ALA reports that most lung cancer cases aren’t diagnosed until later stages, when the survival rate is only 3.9 percent. Only 15 percent of lung cancer cases are found in the early stages, when the survival rate is 53.5 percent." There is no question that smoking and second-hand smoke are the major risk factors for lung cancer. It is the exact reason we need to stop people from picking up the habit in the first place.

I'm not sure exactly why you brought up "heart disease" as a comparison to "cancer", but according to the American Heart Association, "adjusted population attributable fractions for cardiovascular disease mortality are as follows: 40.6% for high blood pressure; 13.7% for smoking; 13.2% for poor diet; 11.9% for insufficient physical activity; and 8.8% for abnormal glucose levels." And, just for the record, according to the CDC, only about 600,000 people die of heart disease each year...not 1 million. BUT,13.7% OF THOSE ARE ATTRIBUTABLE TO CIGARETTE SMOKING.
