Christ was the ideal Muslim.

    Here preaching among Muslims in Islampur town, I often use the vocabulary of Muslims.
    Islam means surrender to God or peace with God. Both mean the same. Unless we surrender to God or God to us, there can�t be peace.
    In both senses Christ fulfilled it. He surrendered to God and being God he surrendered to us. For that right action he was resurrected.
    Mohammed surrendered to God before he fled from Mecca to save himself. He could have surrendered to Meccans as Jesus surrendered to Jews. Even if he were killed there, God could make him victorious like Christ and other martyrs. Until then he had believed in Christ, being instructed by his wifeâ��s Christian uncle. But for his backsliding the blame falls on the apostate Christian leaders of Byzantine Empire.  They wanted to use him as U.S.A. used Laden. Their target was enhancing the empireâ��s power. They goaded him to fight the Meccans and  supported him in disguised way.
    But violence always boomerangs as Christ said �sword will turn against the swordsman.� Muhammad formulated a judaised Unitarian heretic Christianity giving it the name Islam and won over the apostate worldly Christians of Byzantine Empire. God does not want lukewarm Christians in heaven. So He allows devil to shift them as chaff to claim them. But the same fire and sword of violence reigns over the strife torn Muslim world too in greater scale.

      I agree with you on the above point.

      Jesus was one of the ideal Muslim; not the only one.

      He was not god or son of god though

        Oh what blind eyes you have, parr. you know the amazing thing is that even though you refuse to see that Jesus was the only begotten Son of God, He still loves you. And its with that love that He has given me that I bid you farewell and good night!!!!

          Come onhow can you say that Jesus was Gods son. Ok he was the son of God and he had flesh, bones and blood like us and then you people say that he died on cross. Come on even common sense can teach you that he was not son of God but he was a human being like other human beings, but he was one of the noblest human being and he preached humanity, love and peace. He never said himself that he is either god or son of God. This has been created by people. Its a myth like other false myths.

          And dont tell me that it is written in Bible. How can you believe in bible today when Bible has been reshaped and rewritten several times by human hands, it is no more reliable. If you want to confirm than read uran and you will get the evidence that Jesus was not the son of God.

            I am not a fan of Islam & never been one, but I do agree that 'Jesus is the son of God' is truly a rubbish concept & deserves to be in garbage. Gods one & only son is also not true given the fact that we earlier had similar sons of God as saviors.

            Christianity had adopted many concepts, symbols & rituals from the Paganism & Astro-theology of that time. From Ankh/Cross, Halloween, , Easter day TO Virgin birth, Trinity & Christs Death & Resurrection, almost each & every major concept has been borrowed from other religions. The concept of God's one & only Son is no exception to this!

            Son of God, with Dying and Resurrecting ability is an Archetypal Manifestation of Psychological Need of our mind.

            Jesus came willingly into a fleshly body! Nobody, or at least not me, is trying to make you believe something you don't want to believe! If you believe he isn't the son of God then that is your right just as it's my right to believe he is!

              There are African tribal people who believe in Tree Gods & forest spirits, then there are Raelians who believe that Aliens came into this planet in ancient times & created us, the followers of Euthanasia Church believes human are the root of all problems & hence should be eliminated; their slogan - “Save the Planet – Kill Yourself”.

              You are right, people have the right to believe whatever they want, no matter how absurd & rubbish that is!!

      I'm beginning to think the atheists are probably right about some of you.

      Just let it go.
