I think you meant to ask. Why should there be so many religions?

Answer: there's a lot of idiots who fall for ancient Palestinian myths. Saudi Arabia is full of these retards!

Andre, Why are you pimping for Jebus here on the Atheism forum? News for you fella, Christianity is itself a cult. Yes, you fundies are cult follows.

I dont think Muq is going to buy the trinity 3=1, paul's teaching or any nonsense. Cause to those outside of the christian bubble it is easy to see how ludicrous a religion it is. in the same way you see Islam's faults, whilst being immune of the problems with your own religion. Thats how it works, both you and muq just believe what uou believe cause of what you were indoctrinated into believing.

Compared to that the number of women who had not slept with men (all rest of male, women, old people. Children being killed) were 32,000, in a Single Battle of Moses (Numbers Chapter 31). And how many people Joshua and David and Solomon killed.
And I do not know you using that title for any of the Jewish prophets?
The reason I do not criticise these "prophets" is because in all liklihood these events in the old testament were fiction. Scholars estimate the OT was put together in the 5-6th century BC. With the oldest fragments dated 2nd century BC. So the stories of these "prophets" are highly dubious.

But in terms of what they record, the Sharia type law in the OT and the genocides committed, it is primtive stuff indeed. Much like another religion we know!

In several recent speeches, Zardari has referred to Malala as a symbol of Pakistan's resistance against the Taliban's attempts to enforce its mindset and agenda behind the facade of religion.

Malala and her two classmates were injured in an attack by the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan in the former militant stronghold of Swat on 9th October.

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-59

Our prophet was not only a preacher. He was also an able administrator and a just ruler.

Those who have experience of administration know when to act tough and when to act with leniency. A King, Ruler and President knows which criminal to pardon and which to get executed. Those who do not have this experience may only speak in idealistic terms. Such idealistic persons are never able to administer any country or state with efficiency.

Beside so many “Swords” which we have mentioned earlier on this thread. He also had a sword of steel. When no other sword worked and the only solution was to wield the sword of steel, he used that also.

Any one who has read his biography knows that how reluctantly he had to use it. We present below, some of these cases, where prophet had to use the sword of steel.

E. The Case of : IBN KHATAL

When people declared general amnesty to people of Makkah, when he had conquered it, he made certain exceptions.

There were eight or 10 people who were not given amnesty. Some of them were murderers who had taken refuge in Makkah and there were some who were ring leaders or had done some heinous crimes and there was no amnesty given to them.

But after some time gap, some of them were also given amnesty and only three or four persons were actually executed. This established prophet’ position as a just and merciful conqueror and not only an idealist or cruel warrior.

IBN KHATAL had earlier accepted Islam, Prophet sent him with some persons to collect ZAKAT from some tribes outside Madina. They collected ZAKAT, but had some dispute amongst them.

IBN KHATAL killed these people and went to Makkah with the collected ZAKAT. He also went back on Islam and took refuge in Makkah where he was given full protection. When Muslim armies marched towards Makkah, he took his arms to resist them but when he saw that he cannot do much, he threw his arms and went to Kaaba and hid himself in the curtains of Kaaba.

When prophet declared general amnesty, he included IBN KHATAL ‘s name amongst the people who were exempted. It was told to prophet that IBN KHATAL has hidden himself under curtains of Kaaba, prophet said “Kill him”

So he was dragged from there and was executed for the murder he had committed. Kaaba is not a sanctuary for murderers and thieves and robbers. It is a place of peace for those who behave peacefully. Otherwise it would become den and refuge for these criminals.

F. The Case of : TWO SINGING GIRLS OF MAKKAH

These two singing girl slaves of Makkah were also exempted from the general amnesty declared by the prophet. Their crime was that they used to sing the hate poetry and used to lampoon the personality of prophet and muslims.

Their master was ABU LAHAB, real Uncle of the prophet and one of the foremost enemies of Islam and Prophet.

Prophet pardoned other people of Makkah, but not such people who made fun of Islam and prophet’s personality. In those days poetry was the foremost medium of spreading hate and bias against Islam and prophet.

That is why, prophet chose to punish such persons and make them as example for others. So these slave girls were deeded fit to taste “Steel Sword wielded by the prophet” and they met fitting end to their disgraceful careers.

Well said and we see yet another hand picked example by Muq that shows the prophet savagely butchering people and proudly having slave girls.

And he thinks this makes Islam look good? It only shows that they are animals.

He should talk about the holy she camel of Allah.

1 OT Being Fiction:

Just because things being transmitted thru word of mouth from generations to generation means that they are fiction.

It is correct that OT books were written many centuries after their original writers does not mean that they are fiction. They might not be revealed word of God, but they do contain words of God.

Quran confirms many things for OT and NT books and those can be treated as authentic.

2. Using "peace be on him": This is being followed in our vernacular language and we add the term "ALAIHI ALSALAAM" (i.e. Peace be on him) after the name of every prophet, but on these thread, and in line with the practice used by Jews and Christians, we try to use their names without this salutation.

3. Jihad is a comprehensive term that includes war also. In Arabic the term means to strive or to struggle. We are asked to use every means available with us to preach and propagate the message of Islam and defend it against its enemies.

To: Mr. Andre

I went thru your long post and it "confirms" what I said. I did not say that Prophets of God, changed the message they received from God to suit their local conditions.

I said that the laws that were given to these prophets from God might be applicable to local conditions and the state of civilization at that period of time.

But the basic articles of faith shall not change as well as the basic acts of worship.

It were people who after their prophets had gone, corrupted and changed the message and gave them a distinctive name and got divided into the basis of those changes.

And the best example for that is what you have quoted yourself from Christianity!! None of these "articles of faith" are repeated from the mouth of Jesus. They are uttered by others on "his behalf"!!

As you said that the name "Christian" was not given or used by Jesus, it was given by the "enemies of Jesus".

I do not see anything in post refuting my claim, that religion which was sent by God was only one, and followers of prophets changed it and gave them name of their own choice and then started arguing with each other and started fighting over religion.

No two prophets of God, would ever fight with each other over religion!!

1.

MUQ, in view of my expected extended absence from this forum, I considered that I may just as well quickly respond to your post - as my previous response presented no argument.
The central issue at stake here is for you to prove that Islam is the “original” message (as you claimed) from God.

good works will (sorry, may) get you to heaven - Christianity accepts that our salvation is based on grace through faith and not on works at all.

Islam claims Jesus never died – Christianity claims that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and mine and was raised from death to life (This is at the very core of Christianity –
1Co 15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
1Co 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Thus, you have shot yourself in the foot and also made a claim that is easily refuted
(contd)

3.

om 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

But
Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

In essence then, the law stands, so based on that, all of us are guilty. But Christ died for our sins (judgment under the law) so we can live free from condemnation, but at the same time not free to sin (because of being regenerated and now hate sin)

This is an aspect that many Christians also struggle with – law v grace.

You will also know that the “standard” for right living was raised by Jesus and addressed the heart of the law rather than the letter:

Mat 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
