Hi btilly,

I will try my best to answer your questions. I will keep my comments brief this time. My comments are in bold.

You said "Christendom and Islam are the same, not Christiantiy. Islam says kill and Christianity said love." Well, if Christianity said love and not kill then why so many Christians kill??? Is it that we have a lot of people who claim to be Christians and are hypocrites or is it that Christianity is worse than Islam??? Short answer is that Christianity and Islam are similiar in the love and the killing but not as you think. It is called justice. At the judgement evil is sent to hell for punishment and death while good are sent to heaven for paradise. I think I remember when i was a Christian reading something in revelation about Jesus leading an army of believers and slaying the unbelievers or something like that. When Jesus returns and if he was a Musliim would you repent and follow him or would you harden your heart and be one of the unbelievers???

You said, "How can one repent if dead?" Well, everyone will be given a lot of time to repent but when your time is up and you haven't repented then what happens to you??? I think the Biblle and Qur'an are clear and are similar that if you don't repent you are going to hell!!!

You said, "Keith you are so blind and as a black man, you are not even allowed in Paradise because allah created you for hellfire. ..." Islam doesn't condone racism. In Islam all men or as equal as the teeth in a comb. In Islam what distinguishes you is not race but piety to God.

O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). (The Noble Quran, 49:13)"

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stated:

"All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over a white- except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim, which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not therefor, do injustice to yourselves." Muhammad the Messenger of God (PBUH)

I hope this answers the questions and concerns you had in your comments,

peace be upon you ,
