Muslims, Christains and jews all embrace each other in real and there are only some fanatic in all these 3 religions coz of which problems are still there ."

Sorry. Don't believe that that is as widespread as you think.... All I see is a growing mistrust of muslims in western countries and a well founded mistrust I would wager too.

"Christianity is dying in its place of birth and everytime if some thing goes against christians , Western countries are trying to defend those christians , where as if some thing is going against muslims in any part of world , there is no muslims representation , i said like this coz of this reason."

Christianity began in the first century as a Jewish sect, and therefore shares many religious texts and early history with Judaism. How exactly is Christianity dying in it's place of birth? Or is it being throttled by the Islamic tide?

The rest of that paragraph is hilarious. there is no muslim representation? Are you playing the sorry little victim card again. In most western countries muslims are a protected species, the untouchables, so that is unfortunately untrue. If you are referring to muslim countries, muslims appear to have more to fear from other muslims wouldn't you say. There's more infighting between muslim tribal groups than anything else.

"Regarding this "In real Christianity is becoming more and more in worldly affair coz of the freedoms and coz of this only all these Laws are over coming Commandments of Lord" Commandment of Lord here are same sex marraige , homosexuality , lesbains . i m not saying u to put them in jails , just make awareness in this matter and think about God's word . Preach Gospel"

and enforce it how. If it is a true democracy people have the freedom of choice. So are you saying do away with freedom???

"Religious freedom is there in every part of world even in islamic countries and even in western countries .. Where majority is there minority thinks that they are not having freedom the same is happening with muslims in christians countries and christians in muslim countries .."

I've not tried taking a bible or cricifix into Saudi Arabia nor am I likely to try. So unfortunately there are too many instances where what you insinuate here is not true. Christians are being persecuted in muslim countries and even in christian countries where muslims are a minority but only just. I am sure you are right when you come back with the retort that christians persecute muslims in some countries, there is persecution anywhere in the world it's human nature, but muslims are not poor victims in fact in many instances they are the bully!

"In Islamic countries there are many Churches which are very old and u will find churches across all middle east , Iran , Iraq , Syria , lebonan and many more places and the governments of those countries are taking responsiblity of all ."

But not Afghanistan. Try Europe, specifically the UK, where muslims groups bleat and stamp their feet........and...... but that's another discussion.

"I took this from Bible which i m having at home . which is given to me by a friend of mines and i keep it in a safe place and some times i do read it too . There is nothing wrong for me to not read it ..."

Bully for you. I'd be interested to see how you compare the new testament to the Quran.

Submitting....
