Actually I'd like to see where Jesus says this...please enlighten me.

The difference here is that the Quran really does command to execute infidels. Christianity sure does have a bad reputation in the medieval times, but still it's not in the teaching. The church of rome taught something different than the scriptures they had their own "orders" from the magisterium to serve God. Jesus taught to love your enemys. I really don't understand why you are making up those words.

let's take a look at our ultmate ideal of islam, Muhammand and ideal of christianity, Jesus. Muhammad went to war and slaughtered his enemys without mercy if they didn't convert and serve him. Jesus was completely innocent and taught to love your enemy and died for our salvation. Given our creator of the universe is a loving personal God, it would dictate Jesus is your true path to Him. Muhammad on the other hand, serves a god of religion and pride. Jesus taught God is spirit and is within us who believe, which is far more relevant to our latest NDE experiences. Muhammad taught that his god(allah) was a distant, impersonal god without grace. Jesus's ways are of pure spirit and heart, Muhammad's of pure religion. Muhammad's wife, Aishah had written in other documents that he was worried he was possessed of demon spirits and foamed at the mouth in convulsions. Jesus had on the other hand cast them out from people. Muhammad had no such divinity, he was merely a man.

I personally believe he was angry at all the hypocritical jews and christians of his time and sought to ignore the verse on false prophets going out into the world ignorantly becoming one himself who deceived nations...Truth is there is no excuse for ignorance before the great judge in heaven. Those of God from the understand Gods love and those who see it as foolishness are not of his. Each man has his fate in his own hands.

gee which one is the truth...love or religion? hmmm spirit or man?...hmmm such a difficult decision

any more questions let me know...
