    From the Koran:

    Sura 2: 85-88
    Sura 2: C-47
    Indeed, in the very beginning of the Koran, God provides a very sharp rebuke of Christianity as we know it.

    There are many Christians on this forum. Can at least one find an adequate response to the Koran?

    If you are about to attack the personal integrity of Mohammed, remember that most of the Prophets of the Old Testament were seriously flawed, and King David himself was both an adulterer and a murderer. Christians believe that God works through flawed individuals.

    I said he was smart. As I said, he incorporated Christianity to make himself more plausible. Couldn't deny the existence of Christ...so make him a prophet, and chide the church in your new holy book.

    So, you think it is a conspiracy? Do I understand you correctly?

    Yup. Which is why coercion is built into the book.

    I still want to know how they got Mary, the mother of Jesus, down as the sister of Moses, Miriam. Maybe the names are the same in translation but still, we're talking hundreds of years apart.

    Christians were informal in their religious practices, prior to persecution by Islam. It wasn't until Muslims began their encroachment that Christianity began to become centralized in Rome and Constantinople. Before that (and continuing, but in small pockets) Christianity was simply a personal religion, with no designated head other than our heavenly Father.

    Because it is a personal religion and thus de-centralized, people tend to think of "Catholicism" and "Christianity" as one and the same thing. They aren't. Catholocism lacks the one basic precept that is integral to Christianity...the belief that all that is needed for salvation is grace, and grace comes only from God.

    If you were born from 300 AD to 1600 AD, you would burn for that blasphemy, heretic! Consider yourself lucky.

    Oh I know.

    Lots of Baptists suffered that fate.

    And lots of Christians suffered before the advent of Catholicism, as well.

    The Catholic Church was officially established by the Council of Jerusalem under the lead of the first Pope, St. Peter, as described in the Acts of the Apostles.

    Catholicism indeed finds itself at the very core of Christianity. This is why it was the Catholic Church that canonized the Bible.

    Islam vs. Christianity?

    I'm pretty sure that Mohammed could have kicked the stuffing out of that wimpy looking Jesus, plus, Mo had all those curved knives and shit.
