Reader comment on item: The Scandal of U.S.-Saudi Relations
in response to reader comment: "Decent" Muslims !!

The Qu'ran claims to be the light and guide for all mankind and that it is the completion and the final revelation to Muslims and the People of the Book. However the God of the Christians and Jews and the God of the Muslims are two totally different beings. Christians and Jews are commanded by God to live at peace with all men regardless of their race religion class or creed. God himself from the beginning times NEVER forced his will upon humanity. He instructed us like a loving Father to his children in the ways of all righteousness. If we choose to obey God or not that is our God given right. The disobedient will suffer the judgement in the end of course, but it is his right to choose his path.

Jesus Christ who was prophesied as the salvation of the world since the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden has commanded us to Love each other as He has loved us. And there is no greater love than a man lay down his life for his friends. But wait there is because while we were yet blind in our folly and enemies of God, Christ died for us. Christians preach love as their fundamental belief and Christ as the only way. If a Christian falls away fellow Christians try to lovingly help him regain his faith. Compare that to the death sentence for apostates in Islam.

If a nation like the Kingdom of SA who claim to be the guardians of the truth can violate human rights the way it is doing, then I rather live a lie. Compare the life of Jesus and Muhammad. These two men had different agendas. Jesus was at peace and Muhammad waged war.If the God of Islam is the true God then we are all doomed. If so then no I am sure every Christian would rather perish for eternity than to live with such an evil god. Torturing and persecuting Christians only exalt and confirm the truth of the religion. It is written "...but for me to live is Christ, to die is gain..."

But in the end my friend, the choice is all yours.
