in response to reader comment: It is your freedom of choice

Our previous observation is responded to with this carefully worded opine (a portion here, yet without paraphrase):

"The Moral and spiritual teachings of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad undeniably the best there is will ever be, and as testified by many great thinkers of the world are supreme and just

We don't deny Jesus, nor do we deny his miracles, we don't deny many prophets of God and we don't deny their miracles, we believe in them and we believe they are from God.

So for you to believe in Jesus is normal, because we too believe in Jesus. there is no contradiction in here.

but what puzzles me is that many Christian people specially the most religious, they do see the truth and they act upon it and revert to Islam, others, they see the truth but they stick to their old belief in the son of god ideology.

What is important for people to understand and believe is that the Message that Prophet Muhammad brought is a continuation of the teachings of all previous prophets, because they carry the same Message from God."

Let us preface this response with again saying; Yeshua HaMashiach does not require the true believer in Him to exact judgment for unbelief, but to share the witness of His love through believing in faith in His sacrificial death upon the cross for our sins. In essence, just like Almighty God did not send Jonah to Nineveh to preach judgment, but repentance through the Son of Almighty God to prevent judgment, we who are true disciples of Yeshua HaMashiach's preach repentance to all, even to those of Muslim beliefs. Those who condemn and do not offer the salvation Yeshua paid so dearly for are in jeopardy themselves, for their faithlessness is to be judged just as well.

Yet you would have us deny that by the moral and spiritual teaching of the Quran…..you would have us deny that our faith, based in part in His validation of being Deity with the performance of miracles only God could have performed…..you would have us believe there are no contradictions in your belief and a true Christian's even as you have provided some examples of contradictions…..you puzzle over how some who claim Christianity and fail to believe it in their hearts convert to Islam while others do not; the puzzle coming from not realizing that the difference is the belief in Yeshua must happen in the heart and when it does not, Islam seems all too convenient for an alternative change……and you would have us believe that the message of Islam is a continuation of the prophets when it is so obvious they are not compatible.

The true Christians perception of Islam is a direct result of Islam's own doing, fundamentalist Muslims refusing to believe Jesus Christ at His Word and trying to replace Christianity with Islam. It cannot be stated any simpler than that. Christ told Christians there would be days like this; and He is still telling Christians the truth. That's' the beauty of choosing Him over all else; He is still there when we ask for Him.
