I never wrote that I thought you were a Muslim, zzazzeefrazzee. Where did that come from?

Back to the point, one glaring difference between Islam and Christianity and Judaism is the principle of Qu'ran 9.111, which states the only guarenteed way of reaching Paradise - which is to die whilst killing the unbeliever.

The Bible states the only way to Paradise (Old Testament), eternal life in Heaven is through faith alone in Christ alone. Yes, modern Judaism does not recognize Christ as the Messiah. But remember, Paul was a Jew, and he wrote most of the New Testament. I don't mean to get into a theological argument; the point is both Christianity and modern Judaism state the need of a Messiah for entrance into Heaven.

Why would the same "god" give such polar-opposite instruction on a pivotal issue such as eternity?
