Sohail, you are indeed very knowledgeable. unfortunately you are able to take evil ayas from the Qur'an and infer that they belong to another time another place, other circumstances and another people. Alternately, you take scriptures from the Bible and assign meanings to them that were never intended in order to deceive those of poor understanding.

While your attempt to do the same with the Biblical scriptures may convince some, they will not impress those who understand. Mathew 5:17. Christ came to live by the 10 commandments, to keep the Holy Days, to pay for the sins of mankind and to set an example for us.

Deuteronomy 7:2 was specifically for the Israelites, who were entering the promised land and God instructed them to remove the people occupying that land, because they were practicing some of the most horrible and evil cult worship sacrifices imaginable, like sacrificing their children by fire to the false god of Baal. Don't agonize over them Sohail, they will be resurrected and given another opportunity as will your Muslim friends like Muhammad Atta. Now let me address your reference to Acts 3:22 and 23. In Acts 3:22, Peter is explaining that Moses prophesied that God would raise up another prophet like unto Moses, and indeed he did, His name was Jesus.

And no, Peter did not tell the Christians to kill those who don't follow Jesus. What he said specifically is that, it shall come to pass, which implies that it has not yet happened, but will some time in the future and that every soul that shall not hear the prophet in the future, shall be destroyed from among the people. What you do not understand is that the prophet or Jesus Christ is coming again and at that time every soul that shall not hear the prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Jesus Christ's first coming was as a humble teacher and as payment for the sins of man, his second coming will be as: Revelation 19:11: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness He does judge and make war. This my friend is the second coming of Jesus and now Acts 3:23 will be fulfilled.
