more a fact then a claim lisa....well first , growing up in a christian home. parents being baptist and going to a catholic school, i have good knowledge of the faith from both aspects. u know what lisa....its was more like i was guided to islam not taking anything away from christianity being as though i had some muslim and jewish friends. i wanted to know more about each the similaries and differences. i have great and the upmost respect for both great religions. after graduating high school in 94'. i still wasnt sure but islam gave me a sense of peace and a humble feeling. it just felt right to me a beautiful religion from God sent to all mankind. after grad. college i converted to islam in 98'. not that christianity or judaisim wouldnt work....i just think islam was the right pace for me. it helped me become a better person. to be more aware of what i do and not do...have to live my life according to what God wants us too.

my view on it is, if u take the labels off these religions and look at it from a spiritual point of veiw. we are spiritual beings trying to get closer to God the father. its too bad that the devil deceives many in all faiths that has us going at one another. whatever faith that going to make u a better person in soceity and on this earth. then go for it.....i believe its part of God's plan to see if we look past our differences and realize we are all here for the same purpose. prepare for the second coming of christ.
Submitting....
