“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Absolute rubbish.
BJ is a JOKER and a suicidal PSYCHOPATH who insulted the intelligence of the Priests.
ST PAUL performed better miracles and he was seen as GOD in HUMAN form according to your scriptures while they were throwing stones and spitting at BJ.
St Paul is far superior to BJ.
BJ did NOT inherit even a tiny bit of power in a tiny JEWISH settlement!! He was in hiding most of the time.

All power on heaven and earth ALWAYS rests with GOD.

BJ was a fugitive who got caught and got slaughtered for being a naughty boy.

The rest is a load of conjecture.

DITCH BJ and EMBRACE GOD.

There is NO Lord of Lords or King of Kings other than GOd Almighty who created all mankind including BJ.

BJ is a puny little boy in the scheme of things.

BJ is NOT the Son of God and GOD does not need sons!

BJ did NOT conquer death by death he just died according to your books!!!

The oldest recognised gospel Mark ends with no new of resurrected BJ doing anything!!

We can have eternal life WITHOUT BJ!!

And you Skeptic are too ignorant to accept GOD as your Savior.

So you rely on a naked man dangling off his pole!

DITCH BJ!!

You are naive in believing that evil has a legitimate roll to play in our human society.
Instead of condemning it you give it credit where credit is not due.
You are confused Christianity brings liberty and freedom, while Islam brings slavery and captivity, and destruction and death.
Your liberty and freedom is given to by God, yet you fear the liberty and freedom you have from God.
And you give credit to the evil that wants to destroy your freedom and liberty.
To me that is ignorance on your part.

This is what I wrote:

If a State sentence you of death penalty because you changed religion, isn't it a problem and a limit to your right?

Don't you know that Iran and Saudi Arabia are members of U.N. since 1945 and are subjeted to UDHR and other laws? Don't you know they get sanctioned quite often?

The death penalty for changing religion is not a limitation on ones rights in islamic countries where it is sanctioned. Society determines ones rights and not the individual; unless you claim there is some standard of human rights written somewhere in the sky.

Some ignorant Christian posters think that Jesus was the Father and take the following verses from John 14 to make their silly case:

8 Philip said,“Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

9 Jesus answered:“Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father."

Good question.

Shamma Jesus is not the son of god, Jesus is not god, Jesus was a prophet from god and one of the favourite prophets peace be upon him, god sent Jesus to bring a message and warning, to save people from hellfire

As time went by, people started again ignoring the message Jesus had sent his people as delivered by god, the prophet Mohamed peace be upon him was sent as the final prophet to remind humans of the message of god

I wish more Christians would read more about Islam even if they don't convert, because most would realise the respect and love Muslims have towards the prophet Jesus peace be upon him.

Also I studied the bible throughout high school, I can testify that what Islam teaches is an extension of Christianity , the pure Christianity, as we understand it modern day Christianity is quite different to what prophet Jesus taught to his followers at that time

Salam alikoum

Just some advice my brother, the best way to deal with those who peruse a crusade of hatred against Islam, is not to retort with hateful, vengeful or patronising replies, always try your best to maintain dignity when giving answers , as to be a good ambassador for our cause.

I haven't read any posts where you have been rude just I saw others hankering to unnerve you through detrimental language.

Treat others how we wish to be treated.

Okay, so you're obviously very ignorant to the word of God. You read the bible but you don't comprehend it, obviously. I'm not gonna argue with you so don't waste your time replying. I just wanted to let you know you're ignorant.

Pretty sassy it's not nice to call another person ignorant just because their belief in religion different to yours, if you are in fact a Christian I think Christianity teaches peace and not aggression, Jesus or Issa as we call him was a peaceful man, who embraced those who society ostracised, so please take an example from prophet Jesus and behave with some dignity

Muslims should respect Christians, as it was a Christian king who took in the exiled Muslims, the Muslims lived in peace in the Christian Kingdom and both respected each others faiths

As I said Christians should read more about Islam, not by means to revert, but to understand the historical element, that Christians and Muslims were not enemies, during this time, this unfortunately came much later

DITCH BJ....EMBRACE GOD.
It is what the Holy Bible says about God and Jesus Alex that matters.
And you are ignorant of Scripture.
About Jesus Christ

According to Scripture, Jesus was the Messiah (Christ) promised in the Old Testament scriptures—God in human form and Creator of the universe. Jesus took on human form to be born as a baby, growing up to live and teach by example, and provide the ultimate sacrifice for sin—to reconcile us with His holy nature.

Jesus of Nazareth is the central person of human history. The New Testament scriptures of the Bible tell us that Jesus existed as God from eternity past, but took on the form of a human being to be born as a baby in a first century stable in Bethlehem of Judea. Jesus grew up to be a man, teaching throughout Palestine and performing numerous miracles to validate His claims. Since Jesus spoke against the hypocrisy of the religious leaders of His day, He was hated by them. Eventually they conspired together to have Jesus arrested on false charges and tried before the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate. Jesus was executed by crucifixion—a cruel form of torture, in which a person was nailed by his hands and feet to a wooden cross until dead. However Jesus rose from the dead, appearing to hundreds of people. After His resurrection, Jesus commanded His followers to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19), initiating the rise of Christianity.
Jesus as God/Creator

The Bible says that Jesus existed in the form of God prior to coming to earth (Philippians 2:5-7).1 Jesus Himself claimed to have existed in heaven even before the creation of the universe (John 6:62, 8:58, 17:5, 24).2 The Bible also makes it clear that Jesus, as God, created the entire universe in addition to everything in heaven (including the angels).3 More information can be found at Was Jesus God?
Pre-incarnate Jesus

The Bible says that no human being has ever seen God in His glory,4 nor can we see Him until He transforms us into glorified spiritual beings at the resurrection. However, the Old Testament describes the appearance of God as "the angel of the Lord" to numerous people, including Jacob,5 Sarah's maid Hagar,6 Abraham,7 Moses at the burning bush,8 Balaam and his donkey,9 Joshua and the people of Israel,10 Gideon,11 parents of Samson,12 King David,13 and Elijah.14 Theologians call such appearances a "theophany" or "christopheny." In other words, the appearances of God described in the Old Testament were actually the pre-incarnate appearances of Jesus.

Continued Alex.
Jesus appeared in human form immediately before the turn of the first century as prophesied in the Old Testament. The fetus of Jesus was miraculously implanted into the womb of the virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit.15 Jesus was born as a baby in the town of Bethlehem of Judea.16 The birth was accompanied by a host of angelic appearances.17 The childhood of Jesus was not recorded other than His appearance in the temple of Jerusalem when He was 12 years old.18 At 30 years of age19 Jesus began His ministry, which lasted 3 years. During this time, Jesus taught and preached the gospel (good news) of the kingdom of God, saying He was the promised Messiah (Christ). Jesus told the people that He was the only way to God the Father (John 14:6),20 and that all should follow Him.21 According to the Bible, Jesus is the image of God in bodily form and the exact representation of His nature.22 During the latter part of His ministry, Jesus predicted that He would be betrayed and condemned to death.23 Jesus was not popular with the religious leaders, since He pointed out their hypocrisy in no uncertain terms, calling them "whitewashed tombs" and a "brood of vipers."24 So, they plotted and bribed one of Jesus' disciples (Judas) to betray Him.25 Although this betrayal would seem to be a defeat, it was actually part of God's plan of redemption for mankind.26 The death of Jesus provided the ultimate sacrifice for sins, wherein belief in Jesus and His sacrifice results in complete forgiveness of all sin.27 Those who believe in Jesus go to heaven to live with Him for all eternity.28
Resurrection from the dead

After His death, the body of Jesus was placed into the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea29 and wrapped according to Jewish burial practices.30 Because His death had occurred just hours before the Sabbath (on which Jews were not allowed to do any work), some of His women followers went back to the tomb on Sunday morning to finish the burial process.31 Instead of finding the body of Jesus, they met angels, who told them that Jesus had risen from the dead.32 When these facts were reported back to the disciples, they did not believe the women, but went to check themselves, also finding the tomb empty.32 Later, the resurrected Jesus appeared to the disciples both individually and collectively,34 and eventually to 500 of His followers.35 After the His resurrection, Jesus told the disciples to proclaim the gospel (good news) to the entire world.36 They succeeded beyond their wildest expectations, based upon telling people that Jesus had risen from the dead. Forty days after His resurrection,37 Jesus returned to heaven, where He had been before and ever since.38
The Lion of Judah

The first incarnation of Jesus was, as the apostle John said, "the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29).39 After Jesus' resurrection, he told His disciples he was coming back as ultimate judge—the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5).40 Jesus claimed to be the supreme judge who will exercise all judgment.41 Other passages of the Bible confirm what Jesus claimed.42 The grace of Jesus was extended to mankind when He came as the baby in the manger at Bethlehem. However, those who reject that grace will be judged by the Lion of Judah, who will mercilessly destroy the rebels at His second coming.43
