in response to reader comment: WHO IS JESUS & WHAT WAS HIS GOSPEL

You speak eloquently but do not understand of what you speak. Mohammad having deemed Jesus as the Messiah has given proof to the truth that he was the eternal son of the Living God. Only through the Lamb of God can you achieve salvation. You may worship as you wish, believe in what you want and follow any religion that you want. That is your right given by God. Your choice seals your relationship with him. He who does good and harms no one will be seen as a servant of God. He who acts in the name of God to do violence perverts the word of God given to Man from Noah to Moses to Jesus.

The Koran states that the Torah and the Gospels are words from God, and as such must be understood, read, and taken into the heart. The Koran has 5 pillars of faith that contradict that which we know must be true. But we do not know who wrote the Koran, because Mohammad did not.

1) That Ishmael was offered for sacrifice at Mt Moriah, not Issac. This can be proven simple by reading the Bible. Clearly there was no enmity between Issac and his half brother Ishmael, clearly God told Abraham as he offered his only son (son from his wife, who was a Shemite, not a Hamite) said that he would make his progeny a Holy Nation. Moses was a Levite, of the house of Israel, son of Issac, not the Son of Ishmael.

2) The Christ did not say that he was the Son of God. This he clearly spoke to the Sanhedrin at his trial before Caiphus. This he did because he was the Son of the living God, sent to us to cleanse our sins, so that he who believed in him would receive everlasting life, which is a pure relationship with God.

3) That Christ was not Crucified. This is a comment and concept that can easily be traced to Coptic text writte in the 2nd century AD. Even the Talmud states that Christ was "hung on a tree" Clearly he was Crucified. To state otherwise is beyond being false.

4) That Christ did not rise from the Dead (because he did not Die). Of course for Christians this is the basis of our Faith and cannot be proven. It is an act of Faith based on the purity of the life of Christ and the lives of his 11 Disciples. It was that faith that gave comfort to all those who dies cruely at the hands of others only for their faith up to the time when Rome chained the Faith of God to man's earthly goals.

5) The Jesus prophesied that Mohammad would come. The prophesy of Christ was clearly...Clearly speaking of the coming of the Holy Spirit, the word of God who would come and enter the hearts of the 11 Disciples to give them strength and comfort in their hour of great need and distress. It was after the Pentecost that these men, simple and humble as they were embarked on the most unique and profound journey. They spread the word of God, through the life and example of Christ to all the known world in peace, without violence, and without threat. They all dies horrible and painful deaths while spreading that faith. Only John, the beloved Disciple lived out his life to spread the word of God in peace, wile taking care of Mary. His Gospel speaks of the divinity of Christ as the Word, and the Word was with God from the Beginning.

Yes my friend, you may believe what you wish and worship as you want. God be with you. I pray that he will reveal to you the true words and heart of our Savior, Jesus of Nazareth who died to forgive our sins.

God is Great! God be with you always!
