i totally disagree with your comment. i was born into a baptist family. attended catholic school from third through 12 grade. i was tought the bible from different sides of christianity. at a young age i asked questions about certain topics concerning several verses. after speaking with pastors, priest and nuns. the only real answer i was given was maybes or educated guesses. as i got older the question was more in depth and no one had any answers. right before i graduated eighth grade. sister mary had said in theology class that christian believe that there is another prophet that will come from the of the brother ( meaning same bloodline). meanwhile believing in the christian faith i was still questionable about some things.

while attending college i met many different people and other religions. i had jewish and muslims friends. we discussed reilgion many times and from my understanding the jewish religion was first with moses introducing the torah( the law) and the ten commandments. jews also waiting for the great prophet. christianity grow from judaism 600 hundred years after jesus brought the gospel. and islam ( which derives from the word peace) was introduced to mohammed from G-D. the Koran (which means to recite) is not a replacement for the bible. it's an addition to help guide the people of G-D.

muslims are anybody that believe in one true G-D that has no partners and believe in all the Prophets of G-D and their message. muslims believe that the prophet has came and he was mohammed to deliver islam to the world. the thing was the he is of the same brotherth of prophets. the real difference between the reigion is the jews donot believe that the prophet was an abrab from abraham elder son ishmael and not isaac the younger. before then all prophets were from the isrealities/hebrews. christian are in the middle they still wait only they believe in the trinity three equal one G-D. remember the first commandment, i'am the lord your G-D you shall not have any gods before me.Islam is right now the second largest reiligion and the fastest growing compaired to christainity. census say by the year 2025 islam will be the largest reiligon in the world.

if you read the koran you will see that true islam is not about suicide bombings or jihad against amercia. real islam is what malcolm X realized when he took the hajid to mecca. when he return to preach the real islam is when he was killed. just to let the readers know i'am in the military and join sept 19 2001 after 911. to protect my country against those who soil the true islam. i am muslim. a true muslim obey the laws of the land.
