Dear Nuray,

>> you asked "If your God loves you, why not others"

Well my God loves you as much as He loves me, because He is also your God and you are equally dear to Him.

God is nothing but love, Nuray. It is not up to me to convince you this. I am quoting some verses from the Holy Bible which have had a profound effect in my own life. Read these with an open mind and may His Words will become flesh in you.

John 3:16. GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

Saladin responds: begotten son? get your translation right!!

He came to earth in human form to save sinful and unfaithful people like us. Even when we are in the act of sin, He loves us while hating our sins What else is this but love ? And what is the nature of God's love ? That is why we call our God our Father, he loves us like a father loves his children, always caring for their well being and always ready to forgive them, provided they turn away from sinning. ...

Saladin responds: you say that is why we call our God our Father? don't you think your text is already outdated? do you know that every chapter of the Quran except one begins with in the name of Allah, Al-Rahman Al-Rahim? and what is the root for both these words? rHm. and it is the womb. so what can be more loving to a baby then the womb of mother which nourishes it and protects it when the baby is at its most vulnerable. And one saying of prophet Muhammad means that God loves mankind seventy times more than a mother loves her children. don't you think you should call God your Mother instead of Father? don't you think Quran is very 'today' and your text outdated and patriarchaical. now you can talk about love that you know what it is!

you said He came to earth in human form to save sinful and unfaithful people like us. but earlier you said he sent his so called begotten son? so you mean it was not the son but he himself? so God became man and died so that there was no God while he was dead? why don't you keep your confusion to yourself and stop preaching it as gospel truth?
