Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Muslims' Belief in Jesus christ..

Submitted by Sword of Islam (United Kingdom), Feb 20, 2006 at 20:27

The crucifixion of Jesus is probably the most fundamental part of the Christian faith, hence the use of the crucifix (cross) as a religious symbol, so the 'substitution' of Jesus for another person as told by your faith is a very, very important difference.

What does your faith say about the 'miracles', ie raising people from the dead, curing the blind, etc that the Bible says that Jesus performed? Do the teachings that you receive agree with these stories or do they portray him simply as an 'enlightened' man? How is The Bible regarded by your people? Is it regarded as being superceded by the Qu'ran and therefore irrelevant or is it ever referred to in a positive way? Will be very interested to hear what you have to say about this [and don't be concerned about causing offence with your answers!]
