Muhammad and Jesus are both claimed to be a prophet, but one claimed God spoke through. Did Muhammad claim this? If we're all God's children, why must we believe in any particular religion man has created? Can we just have faith that God wants us to be with him and fight any evil doing with his words convicting others to be good people and help, not kill, those who aren't. We all know that if one doesn't believe in life after death, that killing is others is a way to have more power. Our power dies with us and then what? Do we want good people to live in fear of evil? What a life that may be! Jesus only said what God told him to say and he died by men who just didn't understand. Our treasures are in heaven. They always have been. Don't you want to assure your family and friends are with you? Don't you want their people to be with them too? Forget about religion. Love God with all your heart and love others as you would themselves. Did Muhammad say anything like that? No. He just told you to listen and accept what he says no matter who you hurt. I assure you that our God does not want us to hurt others. He wants us to help each other through life so that we may be with him in heaven with him having a good time and worshipping he who has created us. Greed causes evil, power, lust, hatred roots to evil. If one can refrain from these, he has a chance to be a better person to many and the eyes of God. Therefore, let's not fret over religion. Let's rejoice in our God and help our brothers and sisters overcome evil.
