Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Was Abraham counted righteous after he was circumcised or before He was circumcised? Answer: Before He was circumcised! That Abraham might be the father of all them that believe, for there is NO DIFFERENCE. As it is written, the just shall live by faith. Therefore Christ is the end of the law for righteousness for all them that believe. What is Islam then? Answer: A return to the weak and beggarly elements as described in the Apostle Paul's letter to the Galatians. The message to all believers is this: "Stand fast in the liberty wherein Christ has made us free, and be not entangled AGAIN with the yoke of bondage" Gal. 5:1

Muhammed made new fleshly laws for Muslims to follow. If he had been a real prophet he would have told people about the grace that came down to us on the Cross. Instead he denigrated the Cross of Jesus Christ telling people that Jesus Christ never died like that, that God substituted someone else for Him. When in actuality it was Christ who was substituted for us. Jesus Christ said, "the flesh profits nothing". And what has their fleshly religion bestowed upon them, an attitude of "holier than thou". And that breed contempt for others and that lead to murder. The reason for radical Islam, I would rather call it "murderous Islam" is a feeling of superiority to others, which makes them willing to "kill the Kafir".
