Sorry Hind Samy,

I made a decision not to discuss religion in depth here. But, you refer mainly to the old testament. The Old testament is viewed in Christianity as a bunch of stories, legends you might say. The fire and brimstone stuff that very few people, including elements of the church take seriously at all. The New Testament is what Christianity is based on. This is what Christians follow. So you will not find such language in the new testament.

Had the Old Testament been "lived" in the religion I doubt Mohammad would have had chance to create Islam.
