oh i am getting tired of this.....look lisa, all prophets are equal. jesus was born a virgin birth. i respect all of them. they all were sent to deliver a message to the people. the only two that were created different from the others was adam and jesus. as i said before people of the christian faith have to realize that islam and christianity come from judaisim. we all have faith in the same thing.

i know now a days many people look at islam and may think the worst. but all religions before islam went through same and difficult times also. i will be the first to confess our brothers and sisters in the east are not representing islam in the right way. islam is an old religion that has not come out of the old ages yet. judaisim did and christanity also. just as anything it takes time and hopefully not at a great cost. now many people may disagree but i heard this with my own ears from an imam during prayer service.

you see i think a lot of texts in the quran are misunderstood by people who really are skeptical of the religion and really have no real interest in it. the same goes for the bible. many people say the bible is wrong and have been distorted through time. maybe so maybe not...even if the case is close the truth will always find its ways. it a tight knit between these three faiths noone want to believe it. judaisism and islam follow the same customs as far as food, the bible somtime clothing. the only thing that separate the two i think they still await for the last prophet and that he will be from the isacc tribe. christanity on the other hand believe in the gospel in which jesus preached and believe it or not muslim follow the gospels too.

see muslims are only allow to fight for three reasons. protect their land, religion, stands as a people (political). but should not be the aggressors. God doesnt like aggressors and love your enemies. the quran cant be the bible or replace the bible. theyre both sent to us for different reasons. the bible tell stories about the prophets and what they did, how they lived, with message which in those stoires. the koran basically teach us about life...how to live ,what to eat etc. its also tell you in depth information about the universe, mountain storm clouds, a lot of things that i learned from the koran wasnt taught in science class. it is truly amazing.

but back to what i was saying; once jews,christian and muslims...not all but the ones who think single minded focus on their own issue and understanding the truth behind the true faith. as jeffery said once on this forum if you dont understand and accept the truth in their own religion. they will never be able accept or recongize anything else.
