in response to reader comment: I claim to seek and follow the Truth

Michael,

Having read all of your comments, I have many burning questions for you. But, please - when replying to me, make sure you address these questions, rather than talking about things completely off the point, as you have done in all of your other replies.

You're very quick to accuse Islam of being a false religion, claiming that the Qur'an is just a mere copy of the Bible with a few minor adjustments. If it's the same as the Bible, why do you hate Islamic beliefs so much then? I find your claim very hypocritical cosidering the Old Testament is in fact a near exact copy of the Tanakh in Judaism.

As we're on the subject of Judaism, why is it that you hate Muslims so much when your Christian faith claims that the Jews crucified Jesus (the person you claim to be God)? Surely, if this was true, one would dislike the Jews more than any other religion. Now, I have nothing against the Jews, so I'm not spreading hatred here, I just find your views a very strangely biased.

Also, God is the most perfect being in all existence. He is the one who gives life and takes life, with him there is no begininning nor end... So why do you believe that he (i.e. Jesus, the man you believe is God) was killed on the cross? How can God be killed when he has power over all things?

Having read both the Old and New Testaments, I'm sure I'm not the only one to have spotted numerous loopholes. What is your explanation for this?

Finally, I don't understand the Christian concept of being born into sin. Surely people are responsible for their own actions and do not sin because of Eve eating the appple from the forbidden tree? Just seems so ridiculous...
