My brother,

Peace be upon you and God's mercy and blessings,

Are you sure that what i said was conjecture? Are you sure that the Church Dogma and Christian Theology (which is based on faith and not truth or reason or scripture but doctrine) is the truth?

I am not an expert on Christian Dogma or thelogy or history and I am not an expert on Islam but I can read and reason and I just don't see any proof in the scriptures Islamic, Christian or Jewish to support the Church Dogmatic view of Jesus.

Islam is quite clear on Jesus and the proofs as i have stated are from the Qur'an revealed by God to the last prophet Muhammad. I am sorry to disagree with you my brother because throughout church history there has always been two schools of thought and much fighting over the issue of Jesus. One from Jesus disciples which was Jesus was a prophet sent to the Israelites who were monotheist not gentiles and the other headed by Paul to the gentiles mainly Greece and then Rome who were polytheistic. It seems that Paul's theology of Christianity won out due to Rome in the West but he was not a disicple of Jesus and Jesus disciples doctrines is the minority and it is the doctrine that is based on Jesus teachings while Paul's is not. Also, Roman Catholic and the Protestant split later on but Protestant still cling to the Dogma from the Romans polytheism. You can't find any thing about a trinity or nicence creed or apostles creed in the bible and they are not in there. Please read your commandments from God the most high. It is like you said Dogma and not truth. There has and still is conjecture in the Church dogma and Christian theology on Jesus and therefore it is not clear on the subject of Jesus Christ. There is much conjecture between the more than 25000 different Christian sects. He was not "Begotten" he was "Made", and was a 'created' being.

Please look at your scriptures again brother. Also my brother, the scripture that I posted from the Qur'an can all be found in the Christian scriptures that the church has hidden and have not included in the canonical scriptures. It seems that they were left out for a reason. Also, they have tampered with the scriptures that are there. Also, the old testament has been tampered with by the Romans and Israelites. Maybe, and this is conjecture, to support the Jewish and Church Dogmas. Also, maybe the church called all the true disciples of Jesus heretics and killed most of them off but this is conjecture also. That may be why there is a lot of conjecture, contradictions, and mistakes in the Bible. It also does not help that it is a translation of a translation of a translation. (Hebrew/Aramaic to Greek to Latin to English.)

I pray that you will come to the truth about God and don't go on blind faith that is not based on God's truth but man's dogma.

Only God know's best,

peace be upon you,
