Christian vs Islam

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

My feeling is that Christianity and Islam are the exact reverse opposite of each other.

The Christian God created Man to be the receiver of His gifts and the object of His love.

Allah is the exact opposite. He created man so that the whole world would kneel on hands and knees in perfect unison with him at the center. Allah is a slave lord. He created mankind solely to have worshipers (that's what it says" , solely for self-aggrandizement.

Christ came that we may have "life more abundantly" and live in "perfect freedom."

Allah wants our whole life, our every move, to be dominated by him so that we have life LESS abundantly, and to live in perfect slavery. This is why no pictures, no music, covering women. Allah only.

Allah gives punishment and mercy arbitrarily, "to whom he will" (it says that). That would be impossible for a Just God.

But God gives both perfect justice and perfect mercy because the price of sin has been paid, and He Himself paid it.

Allah promises to give his followers "success" and to make them always the winners. That is in their 5-times prayer. Also, every prayer asks not to be like the Christians or Jews. They are obsessed with us.

The Christian God is the God of the losers and for that reason I am someone who loves Him.

Islam is a kind of "anti-Christianity," if you know what I mean.
