Ahmed, you comments are v ery interesting and it does seem you a re a seeker of the truth. Even you must know, having read the Quran, of its failings when it comes to contradtions in attitudes of rightiousness and treatment of people -- non-muslim. When one considers the Holy Bible of Israel a person can find the same kind of contradictions, the "eye for an eye" and such, which can lead to endless acts of revenge against everyone not agreeing or having commited some act of evil against a person. this creates an endless cycle of violence.

Someone has to be brave enough to stop, to say it is enough. This is exactly what we see in the teachings of YaHshua (the teacher Christians mistakenly call Jesus). YaHshua, mothered by Maryam, taught true peace and life. It is the destroyer (Satan) that leads use throught the words of our prophets to do violence one to another, all in the name of our God. YaHshua, however, instiuted a different, a better way, not a way the world wants but truly a better way, a way that really does lead to life eternal. It is not resonable to think a Creator God would want to fill His kingdom up with violent, rebellious, bloody men. We see in the Hebrew Bible that the prophet David was not allowed to build the Temple because he had innocent blood on his hands. This seems resonable for a God that is offering life eternal. I would suggest, Ahmed, that you begin to read the New Testament, the record of what YaHshua had to say and you will see no comparison with what those claiming to be Christian but doing their own thing under the sway of their false teachers. That is not everyone, of course, just as with some Muslims but the big difference is with the written words, not even the Quran compares. YaHshua's teachings are the only way to life, true life. The Kingdom He represents will be one of peace and filled with those full of peace and love not with those that murder. Please, take the time to read the book the Christian hold to be Holy -- do not judge the book by those claiming to follow it, you may be surprised and the Quran may come to mean nothing in comparision. Peace, to you and those others seeking truth.
