Didnt u read my previous comments? u dont necessarily have to perform a pilgrimage in order to become a muslim.
"Jesus's teachings are the exact opposite of Muhammad's"
First learn the Quran, understand it and then make claims.
"...Muhammad thought hate."
Muhammad(pbuh) taught Islam from the Quran. the quran does not teach hate.
"Jesus was a jew. He lived his life as a jew"
too bad u cant be a jew
"Jesus was baptized. Do muslims get baptized?
13Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"
15Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented.
16As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.""
Muslims follow the uncorrupted version of Islam.
"muslims don't drink wine, but Jesus turned water into wine and drank wine."
Y is wine forbidden in christianity?
"Jesus ate the passover meal. Do muslims eat passover meal? Do muslims celebrate the passing of Israel from slavery to freedom? The passing from damnation to redemption?"
Jesus said he could do NOTHING on his own. do say that he could do NOTHING on his own?
