To Barbara; It is very unlikely for Jesus to give a killing order because of his social position. Wasn't he a carpenter?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: sayings of Jesus that he was giving order to kill

Dear Barbara,

I knew that you would ask it. It was a few years ago. I didn't pay attention to the source.
But I didn't forget it because it was a very strange reason ( if a messenger gives order of killing people) for me to leave a religion. I couldn't find his message on the web again,

"Can you believe it? It is true. Why not? " in this sentence "it" refers the action of ex-Christian.
That's why I continued by saying "But I wouldn't do it".

He could be misleaded with the wrong information. Jesus was neither a statesman nor a commander, unlike Moses and Muhammed, peace upon him. Jesus was like Adam, Abraham or Noah according to Quran. As far as I know they were not in a social position to give such orders. Jesus was a carpenter, wasn't he? I would say that It is very unlikely for him to give such an order. But I gave this ex-Christian example to show how people decide to leave their religions.

Who can spread those wrong information about messengers? Who knows? Muslims recognise all messengers they don't attack person of any messengers. They don't produce fake stories to insult any messenger. It is forbidden.

What's the difference between that ex-Christian and Ayesha? She believes that Allah is Moon God, which is incorrect. It is not written so in Quran. This claim is ridiculous for a Muslim but not for her. If I could find that ex-Christian do you think you could convince him? There are many good things are written about Jesus in Bible but just one sentence, true or not, changed his mind. Religion is not straightforward like science.
