Dear Sarah,

I am back at this board after a while and now see that debates on an important issue is going on. I am happy to see this, because this is the basic subject of faiths. While some people are not interested in discussing this, I fully agree with M al-Content that we need to know the basic point from where the Christians and Muslims started their respective journeys and parted each other. This is also a subject that devides the Jews and the Christians.

So, in order to understand the relations of the Christians with the followers of other major faiths in the world, that inclued Judaism, Islam, and yes, Hinduism (why not?) we need to know the Christian views on the concept of Trinity and the relationship of God with Jesus (pbuh).

Sarah, you said : 'I would request all Muslims to leave Jesus/ Isa out of controversy. If our prophet is attacked by the Chirstians, we cannot attack Jesus as an act of revenge'.

I don't know why you said that. No Muslim at this board or outside on streets will make any controversial comment regarding prophet Isa (or Jesus, pbuh) or 'attack' his position 'as an act of revenge'. There is no confusion about the status of Moses, Jesus or Muhammad (peace be upon them all) in Islam. They are all prophets. They are all human beings. Therefore, in Islam, there is no scope for any confusion or controversy regarding Jesus (pbuh).

I would also like to thank you (Sarah), Another one, Hind Samy, Adib Farakish and M al-Content for their excellent posts.
