I'm sorry man, you're deceived. We have no common spiritual grounds. The Bible speaks expressly against God's people (the OT and NT saints) and people of different faiths coming to intellectual agreement. Yes, we are to live in peace, but to say that we are all correct is to say, literally, that there is no truth. This is Satan's greatest lie. You are deceived into believing that we have common grounds, when the only common ground we have is that we are human. It goes no further than that.

You still ignore the contradictions in the Koran and the words of the Bible(it doesn't matter if you believe it's true or not, if your point is correct than it wouldnt say this) that the name of Jesus Christ is the only name by which men can be saved. Before He came, the OT saints looked forward to the cross for their redemption. After He came, the NT saints looked back to it.. I believe that what you are experiencing is the strong delusion spoken of concerning the last days before the tribulation, the seven year reign of the antichrist, and the return of Jesus Christ Himself:

2Th 2:3 ΒΆ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
