After watching the 12:00 news. I asked God, "Why do these people worship a god that is not real? He said, "because, he is real to them". Then my God said, "You just stick to your own religion".

The Muslims believe that Christ was a prophet and recognise that Father Abraham was the father of all nations including themselves much of what is written is solely a matter of false information rather than fact.
Jesus is the saviour of the world and Abraham's (who fathered Ishmael) God was The I am.
YAHWEH not Allah and that is plain and simple written fact.

You should not look unther french, yet Carolingian, 800-1000ac.
it will be safe to say that Germanic could also give some info (french are actually germanic tribes emigrating from over the rhine (still most french will not be willing to admit it

Andy,I searched but I never found anything to confirm what you are saying about the Abbot. What I had found before stated all Belts on display were constructed in early part of 19th Century. Yes what I found also said they were invented in 16th Century Italy. This same type thing happens even with some sayings about the Bible "God helps those who help themselves",they are used so much people think they are facts in the Bible when actually they aren't. All Belts on display have been tested for age and none of them were as old as Myths thought them to be,as a result the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg,Musee Cluny,Paris and British Museum have either corrected the date listed or removed them from the Medieval displays.

Darlene, you should vissit the castel of Boulion (Belguium) they have some of these fake belts on display. by the way the chastity belt was not invented by the english. its a frank invention by an abbot (figures.)by the way the first crusades where a francish bussines, only with the fourth crusade the english ghot involved.
---Andy on 5/18/09|
Here is just a bit of real history of Chasity Belts. In fact,Belts were not invented during Medieval times by Crusading husbands. That is just a Myth. All known fake Medieval Belts were actually construced in the first half of the 19th Century and there are no known genuine Belts from Medieval times. The oldest design for a Belt is from the 16th Century but it's only a design,none are believed to have been produced from it. The Chasity Belt is thought to have made it's first appearence during the Renaissance or somewhat later among Italians not among Englands crusading Knights. Any reports from Medieval Times of deaths and infections from Chasity Belts are just as inaccurate as its reported use in Medieval times since it was nonexistent then.

amand when the coran was written, there where a lot of abuses concidering, the coran actually (seems strange today) tried to protect women who where little more then punchingbags at the day . problem is that since it is in the coran, it has blocked a further development and liberation for the same women it tryed to protect, after Mohammed's time. (what would have happened if a medieval european custom would have been taken in the bible (virginity belts killed thpousands of young women steriluised hundreds during the crusades) however it is good to start with, at the end it turns bad because it was made religion. Thank God that we do not have this kind of WOMEN LIMITING scriptures in our bible.

The Koran tells men to beat their wives.

A couple of points here, about what the Muslims believe.
Fundamentally, they deny 2 points: Jesus is not the Son of God, he is just a prophet and nothing else. Some even teach that he is not as great as Mohammed.
2nd, the crucifixion was a lie, and he never died on the cross. Apparetnrly, he switched places with some4one in the crowd.
Do they teach good morales? sure, so do the Hindus.
There can be no compromise with Islam, where Islam rules, Christians die for their faith.
---mike8384 on 3/24/09|
JohnyB is wight in saying that the coran is not compatible it lacks grace and it lacks Christ's sacrifice. yet it is a quite good moral teachings books. however it does calls its adherentrs tothe INTIFADA and is therefore to be rejected. in contradiction to the bible that is to be accepted.

**I want the words which God gives me face to face.**
God told me to tell you that you ran out of His words a long time ago and are using your own on most of your posts here.
---katavasia on 3/16/09|
JIM, what you say makes perfect sense to us Christians, only that Muslims believe the New Testament is a corrupt and therefore an untrustworthy document not reflecting accurately what Jesus actually taught and experienced. It is their loss. God bless you.
---JohnnyB on 3/13/09|
We should carefully note that Arab Christians also call God 'Allah' in their language. That Arabic word is closely related to the Hebrew 'Elohim' and 'El Alyion' as found in the Old Testament. God bless.
---JohnnyB on 3/13/09|
JohnnyB said:The Quran teaches that Jesus was a great prophet.
If islam believes Jesus Christ was a great prophet they must believe what he says, because a prophet of God cannot lie.
Therefore...when Jesus says he is the only way to the Father, it must be truth. So muslims have to believe this or they are believing a false prophet.
---JIM on 3/13/09|
the coran teahings are verry simple to put in 3 lines
1 We are right, all the rest is wrong, even when they say they are right.
2. convert all the others to our way.
3. If they dont accept kill them all.
almost the same as hristianity yet totally differently and lacking any kind of mercy.
---Andy on 3/13/09|
I believe that Allah is not God as the Bible describes God. Any Muslim can tell you they have no "personal relationship" with Allah.

The teaching that Jesus is the Messiah is explicit. One example follows.
(And remember) when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! God giveth thee glad tidings of a word from him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (unto God).
He will speak unto mankind in his cradle and in his manhood, and he is of the righteous.
She said: My Lord! How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me? He said: So (it will be). God createth what He will. If He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is. 3:45-48

The Quran teaches that Jesus was a great prophet. It does teach the virgin birth, but it denies that Jesus died on the cross. So, yes, it contradicts what's in our scripture. God bless you.
---JohnnyB on 3/12/09|
While I am no scholar on Islam or the Koran, I found some text based on Walter's assertion that the Koran teaches that Jesus is the Messiah. I only looked at 3 passages and found that they do not teach this per se, but are only referring to the fact that He was called Messiah by believers. The Koran states that, "Allah is one, and has no son."

Thanks Moderator. I always try not to glance at your answers before I place mine, because I do not want to cheat. I want the words which God gives me face to face. This time I couldn't help it. I'll just put in here>>> Ofcourse the qur'an is man-made. The Bible was written by Holy men under God's inspiration. Also, Sometimes, God will tell me or correct me and later on will show me a scripture [back himself up I guess]. I don't really know His reasons. Also, God's people, should realize, as I have stated a few times, Not everything about God was recorded in the Bible. I can promise you God's word, no matter, how many translations is out there, is true.
---catherine on 3/11/09|
I thought that the two were incompatible. However, after reading it, I am convinced that they are not. Were you aware that the Quran teaches that Jesus is the Messiah? Muslims are not taught this, and you will not find a Muslim religious leader admit that Jesus is the Messiah, even though the Quran repeatedly states so.
The problem is that Muslims are not taught the teachings of the Quran, but Islamic tradition. Islamic tradition is in complete conflict with Christian tradition, but I have found that there is harmony between the Bible and the Quran. I am happy to defend that assertion.
---walte6469 on 3/11/09|
Deb, There IS a difference between teaching that people should destroy people who aren't of the faith and that God will destroy those who reject His gift of salvation. We, as christians, are taught/and teach that we are to love even our enemies and share the Gospel with them. The Koran/Quran teaches that ANYONE who isn't a follower of Islam or willing to convert or pay a ransom should be killed on the spot.
---tommy3007 on 3/11/09|
"Absolutely! If you have any doubts, you could type "Koran" or "Quran" into a search engine and read for yourself. Primarily, the Koran teaches destruction of ALL who do not follow Islam, and they deny the deity of Jesus Christ."
How many Christians believe God will destroy those who do not follow Jesus?
Do you recognize the theme?
---Deb on 3/10/09|
I learned the hard way that the Bible and the Koran are not the same. In the school of hard knocks.
Since I was a child, I believed that there were several religions in the world, but they all had the same God, the same teachings, the same prophets, etc. Just different names.
Well, I had several heated discussions with other Christians. At first I thought that they were just trying to get me upset. Finally, I "saw the light". There are differences. Especially, between the Bible and the Koran.
I always ask God to use me to help others "see the light" and realize that there is only one, true God. Our Father. And that the Bible is 100% true.
---Sag on 3/9/09|
I only recomend you read the koran (Qur'an)if oyu are spiritully mature & cannot be waivered. there for you can see the differences for yourself.
