You are welcome..and I am sorry that you have not had the chance to meet some good muslims.<quoted text>
Then this means that you are a Christian and not a Muslim.
What you just stated is what Jesus- whom I love and respect- would instruct, not pedophile Arab illiterate Mohammed.
Mohammed instructs you to make war and conquer until Islam is the ubiquitous ideology engulfing all corners of this earth. Jihad is a must if you are to be considered a true believer. I can quote Islamic scholars on this.
You are a Muslim in name only. I feel stupid wasting all this time bickering with an untrue Muslim.
But since you were polite- thank you and same to you. All the best in your life.
I am a Muslim.
A true Muslim is a person who is full of love for God and to fellow humans.
Jesus told people to abandon family and follow him. He even insults his parents according to Gospels. He also claims he came to cause division etc. I know pundits will try to re interpret all this to suit them!
Believe me I am an expert on Christianity.
Love attributed to Jesus is all very well but if you actually learn the scriptures you will find a very confusing person in Jesus because Gospels were authored by many who knew not a lot about the "Semitic" or even Abrahamaic (some even say brahma/sarasvati is akin to abraham/sarai!!) way of life.
Parents can love children if they are really mischievous they can give a little sanctioning. That does not mean parents hate kid.
When it comes to propagating a religion, it is not easy others will try to kill you and you have to defend yourself like David Moses and others did.
Unfortunately Jesus did not have the support to defend himself. That is why he was captured sentenced and tortured.
The talk about him being God is all very blasphemous as Jesus NEVER claimed divinity. They writers decided to turn a failure into success by claiming he planned to die etc...but believe me..real study of the religion will prove that liars made up a person who is not jesus.
We have a non-gentile earthly Jesus and then Paul comes up with a gentile risen Christ. I have done a lot of research into all this.
This is my challenge...
Show in the NT where Jesus claims divinity as follows:
"I AM JESUS. I AM YOUR GOD WHO HAS COME TO EARTH IN HUMAN FORM AS MY ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO DIE WILLINGLY IN THE HANDS OF JEWS, FOR THE SINS OF GENTILES AS WELL AS THE ISRAELITES ON A roman CROSS, WHO WILL BE SAVED FOREVER & HAVE ETERNAL LIFE WHEN THEY ACCEPT MY SACRIFICE ON THEIR BEHALF when I go back up to sit on my own right hand to make foot stool of my enemies. I EXPECT NOTHING IN RETURN"
Seriously, it is all very well chatting here but you must concentrate on your studies as you did tell friends you were studying for exams.
