Christians don't even know what they're saying...

This is in response to Craig Cannon's response that I just happened to stumble upon as I was surfing the web. You don't know your own religion. How can you say something about the Muslim faith? You said, "Islam is a religion of no real hope wheras Christians have a definite relationship to Jesus and have the definite promise of eternal life with Jesus. Jesus died for our sins and through him we have a pathway to God, not through works but through the fact that we know Jesus died for our sins in order that we can be presented blameless before God."

at least the Muslims are willing and wanting to do something to return to God. Wheras, as you say, Christian's can sit on their prideful bottoms and say, "I'm saved because someone else already suffered my punishment. Now I can go kill, steal, commit adultery and all of the other problems this world thinks are okay, and because of Christ I can 'Eat, drink and be merry'. Haven't you ever read the bible? Don't you even want to try to understand the atonement? Christ didn't do what he did so we'd be free to sin then be happy withourselves later! That defeats the purpose of even coming to this world! What's the point of the commandments? Try James 2:14-26! Faith without works is dead! It's one thing to believe in Christ. Faith mean you PROVE you believe. So, even IF the Muslims believed that blowing themselves up would save them, I'd say they're doing a lot more for their eternal salvation than you ever have. All it takes is an open mind, open heart and a little bit of studying then ASKING GOD what the truth is (James 1:5&6) and he'll tell you. But you've got to work for it.
