Dear Lactantius,

I am very surprised by your post. How can you say that Mohammad(saw) was a sinner. How can a prophet declare by a god can be sinner. The problem with you is that you dont believe that Mohammad(saw) was the last prophet sent by God. If you really believe in God then you should ashamed of writing such nonsense things about the messenger of God who was of high moral character.

The prayer which he used to recite it doesnt mean that he was a sinner. It was taught by God to him and for his disciples who were human beings, including him.

you have quoted that "Salvation is only through Jesus Christ"

see what Qoran say about your comment 1400 years ago

They say, ‘No one will enter the Garden except for Jews and Christians.' Such is their vain hope. Say, ‘Produce your evidence if you are telling the truth.' (2:111)

So better be muslim and accept the religion of abraham. I am including this verses of Qoran so that you can be truely guided.

The Jews and Christians say, ‘We are God's children and His loved ones.' Say: ‘Why, then, does He punish you for your wrong actions? No, you are merely human beings among those He has created. He forgives whoever He wills and He punishes whoever He wills. The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything between them belongs to God. He is our final destination.'(5:18)

We muslims dont distinguish in the prophet as the Qoran has taught us:

Say (O Muslims), "We believe in Allâh and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrâhim (Abraham), Ismâ'il (Ishmael), Ishâque (Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob), and to Al-Asbât [the twelve sons of Ya'qûb (Jacob)], and that which has been given to Mûsa (Moses) and 'Iesa (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islâm)." (2:136)

May Allah guide you on true path.
