How to abridge differences between Christians and Muslims?
Muslims consider Christians as people of book - Injeel (Gospel) was believed to have been word of God once; how ever it fabricated in later times according to Muslims and couldn't maintain its purity.
Christ is believed as the son of GOD, while to Muslims He was one of the mighty messenger of GOD - latter revere Christ as the Prophet of GOD; where as Muhammad (SAW) is not believed by Christians as the Prophet of GOD.Optimistically though, despite differences both Christians and Muslims have so much common.Then how can those commons be magnified and differences be trivialized.
Other than the fact that Christianity (supposedly) teaches love; there is no clear line in between. This is my opinion. Both religions have slaughtered countless people in the name of God and has strived hard to convert. Christians have strayed from the Bible and uses it as they please, to however it benefits them. Muslims and Christians have been at war for ages. I am christian. I try to live by the text. I is hard and I am far from perfect. I still do believe what the scriptures teach. They two religions are both bloody and have no way to convince that they are the better choice. The trials that our country is engaged in right now are a product of this fued between Christians and Muslims. I am inclined to lean towards the word of God when I think about an outcome.
Islam is bloody religion because Mohammad did the war with the tribes and and Jews and he was encourage by angels and Allah.
crusaders does not represent true christianity because they were not encourage by Jesus or God to have bloody war.
There are many glaring differences but let's deal with the big one. In order to find common ground they will have to agree on who or what Jesus Christ is and was.
If you look at the two doctrinal positions that may be a tad difficult because If Jesus Christ was not the Son of God, as He claimed, then He was a liar and Christianity is a false religion. On the other hand if He was the Son of God then Muhammad is a liar and Islam is a false religion. It would be a little difficult for either side to trivialize this difference
I'm sure you will agree the negotiations on this point would be rather difficult. For better or worse there are no minor points of contention in religion.
