Dear Zafire,

Tell something, would you feel fine knowing that someone does not want to be a muslim but goes to the mosque anyway. Are you saying that allah as no problem with hypocritical worship?

I'm not surprised at that, after all allah requires obedience from his followers, not love. Allah does not care if you love him or not, just bow before him like a slave bows before a master. Now I see why muslims call themselves slaves of allah. You don't need to love your slave master allah, just bow before him like a slave. Allah would do quite well in the old south.

Jesus on the other hand loves us, and ask us to love him in return. He does not want us to sin, but if we sin and aks for forgiveness and repent He will forgive us. He does not require blind obediance from us. Jesus let us know that if we are not true in our hearts, our prayers mean nothing. However love and repentance is what Jesus ask of us. He is a father, not a slave master that requires blind obedience.
