Atheist or Muslim?

Sarah,

You obviously do not understand the difference in books. This book, the Quran, is supposed to be the word of Allah handed down to Muhammad. I personally think that it is a fraud, as I am an Unbeliever or Infidel. It says to slay Pagans and fight people of the book until they are subdued and not to make friends of Christians and Jews and if one was brought up in the culture that believed the Quran was revelations from Allah via Muhammad, it is very easy to see the cause of the violence is rooted in the Quran. It also says smite at their necks: notice the bloody videos with Jihadists slicing their victim's heads off?

I follow Jesus Christ who said "Love one another" and "love your enemies" which is hard to do but that is what he commanded. I do pray for Muslims to come to the Light of Christ. He also said He was the only way to the Father and he performed miracles to prove He was God. I put my faith in that. Muhammad did not perform any witnessed miracles. The Quran and the Gospels are not just books to those that believe in them. The Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ and the Quranic teachings of Muhammad are by and large opposites of each other; Christ preaches love and forgiveness, Muhammad preached fighting, killing and subduing those who did not believe in his religion/ideology.

If you have no faith you will never understand. If you are a Muslim, you are practicing Taqiyya (deception)..
