Comment:Thank you for an honest and fair comparison of some of the beliefs of the Christian and Muslim communities as regards Jesus Christ. I must agree with your writing on Paul as what I have read from historians - as opposed to religious theologians - would seem to confirm your opinion. I found it interesting to read in the Bible that Paul said in Romans 3:7 'Yet if by reason of my lie the truth of God has been made more prominent to his glory, why am I also judged a sinner?' I have wondered what was meant by this and I understand it to raise the question of whether increasing belief in God through means that may include falsities is a good thing or a bad thing?
I understand that the Qu'ran is very clear about this. From what I have studied to date, I hold the Qu'ran to be a validator of all other religions and my understanding is that there is a common core of revealed instruction that can be found in Christianity, Judaism, Islam and other religions. This makes sense to me as the Qu'ran says that God sent His messengers to all people in many different communities and my thinking is that perhaps through time and cultural influences, in some communities the same message has become 'incultrated' and is therefore expressed differently. In others, the message may no longer resemble its original source - that is for the Believers to study and examine in their search for Truth. The Qu'ran says that Islam is to be tolerant of the People of the Book and the People of the Gospels. There is only One God and so works such as yours which highlight the similarities and the differences is a very strong way of bringing communities who believe in only One God together. I believe that racism and religious intolerence is borne of ignorance and an inability to understand differences and so those who appear different are attacked. Your work explores differences and makes it clear to the reader just how similar in belief we all are. For that, we should be grateful.
Assalam u aliakum.

Comment:I would have to say that this is one of the best articles that I have read comparing these two religions. Its very hard to be objective, especially for someone like me, because even though I believe acceptance is a good principle, it is still tough for me. Way to go! This article made it easier for me to understand how mainline Muslims think about Jesus...

Comment:I am an Egyptian Muslim and I am very glad to see such a good article that forces no openion but states facts and leaves the reader to make up his mind on his/her own. I think that many Christians who were told that Muslim don't believe in Jesus now know that Muslims believe in all Massengers and Prophits that were Sent before Mohammed Peace Be Upon Him by Allah.

Comment:I am a Christian, and I would just like to say that I like your writing, and I like your approach to presenting the different views. But (and you probably knew that I would have one) the writings of Paul, I have found, line up with not only other writings in the gospels and other New Testament books, but also with the writings of the prophets. Sorry if I seem like I'm preaching, but I'd just like you to know that I believe that Paul's writings were God inspired. As for Barnabas, he believed that he was right, and I can't condemn him for that. As for me, I believe in a loving, infinite, all powerful, and all knowing God, and whether you believe in what I believe or not, I will give you the same advice-ask God to reveal to you the truth, because we are only human, and we all make mistakes. Yesua behebak!

|Search The Quran|
|Something to Ask...|
|O Allah! |
I ask You by every name that You have, that You have called Yourself by, that You have taught any of Your Creation, that You have revealed in Your Book, or that You may have kept secret with Yourself.
Make the Quran the spring of my heart, the light of my breast, the dispeller of my sorrows, the eraser of my anxieties and worries.
