>> I was struggling with evil

Could you explain more this? What 's evil for you?

>> Jesus himself became that final sacrifice, ( a lamb without any defects ) so that the sin of humankind were forgiven.

We Muslims sacrife animals to feed poor people and ask for forgiveness for our sins. We are responsible from our misbehaviours. I am not responsible for any imaginary sin. Therefore, it is not necessary to sacrife any flesh. The concept of " the sin of humankind " doesn't suit to modern mind. Don't you think so? How can a baby born with a sin? He/she knows nothing about what's bad or good.

After the sin of Eve and Adam, they left heaven. If God really forgive human beings we should have been in heaven now, not on earth.

>> So man has the power to overcome sin

Human beings always has power to overcome sin. It has nothing to do with religion. Otherwise how we can explain good behaviors of other religious people.

>> What I have quoted above are a part of the Jewish sacred scriptures, butmany of the Jews themselves never understood it.

That's true. Jews don't accept Jesus as a messenger. They don't recognise the concept of "trinity". Jesus was a Jewish. Isn't it strange? If Jesus was really God all Jews should have accepted this immediatelly. But it didn't happen. Jews didn't follow him. Why?

>> Well my own father is only human and his love has limits, but the love of my Heavenly Father that I accept as my God, does not have any limits. God is nothing but love and it is that love that binds us to him. This is the way I understand my God

What I believe is that God or Allah doesn't exist for me or my own needs. Allah exists. I am just a creature to obey the rules that's chosen by Allah. Allah loves me. Because Allah is my creator. This is the real link between me and Allah. Therefore, Allah needs nothing. No room for humiliation. How can I ask my Creator to do something so that I can love him? How can I ask any proof for his love? No way. Who am I? Just a creature among billions of others. All I can do is to worship Allah.

>> If Mohammed and Jesus, both were really Allah's messengers their teachings and actions would NOT have been diametrically opposite to each other.

That's true. That's why we Muslims believe that Bible is corrupted. He never claimed that he was a God-man. Jesus is not only a God-man in human history. There were many before Jesus. You have just chosen the last one. I don't think God can have human form. This is the basic difference between your and mine belief. Let's read your title.

>> Jesus, the Son of YAHWEY is our true God

God is son of something. Creator is the son of a creature. If YAHWEY is God Creator is the son of Creator Does it make sense to you? Who is the original God? Which comes first? My modern mind tells me that the title of your comment doesn't make sense to me. Not at all.

By the way, true God or false God is very subjective. God is god.
