Mary is human,right?

then Jesus must be human;there's nothing godly that can come out of something human(lower in status). That God(Allah) created jesus fatherless was meant as a miracle that god(Allah) can do anything outside the range of human perception(he doesnt need you to go thru intercourse to create you) .

But you guys insead of recognizing the miracle in it , you went the other unreasonable way round and called jesus god' son.

Hey, adam also was created fatherless,why dont you call him god as well?

God(Allah) empowered jesus(the human messenger) to enliven the dead temporarily as a miracle and as a privilege so unreasonable and disbelievers have no excuse not to believe his message(that God-Allah-is One.

God(Allah) asks muslims(those who beliveved in Him and surrenders to his rules;they can be anyone) to prove their faith and how far are they willing to satisfy and obey Him(same thing when they fast in ramadan)

I was a staunch catholic though my grandfather was a jew . One day,my daughter kiara-then 8 years-asked me:

" Mom,what's God?"

i asked her to check up the dictionary.she did and read it to me:

" A uniqe supernatural power......"

then she said

"Does he resemble us?"

I said " No,he is unique and must be of a different make"

kiara my daughter then replied

" I heard jesus is his son,right?'

"yes" I said

Kiara went like " Then he is like us,having sons and daughters and not unique as the dictionary says"

I was STRUCK to say the least .

How stupid i was never thought of that.never came to me that birth giving and parternity is a human characteristic that should not be applied to a unique god !!!
If God(Allah) has sons ,then how is he any different from charles my neighbor who's having sons and daughters. ...????

And if i were to give birth to a kid and name him Jesus,what would differ him from Jesus christ? And why his dad(my husband) be called god or gohead or whatever ? suddenly i saw the truth and then knew why christianity has no impact on people.coz people end up seeing it as a greek myth. And if jesus was passed as he is-a human messenger,christianity would have gone a long way by now.

I almost had a heart attack the other day when an innocent young man was distributing booklets about jesus.i read " Who created the World? The bible says: Jesus" I went aloud " Oh my god !" How come ?

I know that Adam,Abraham,moses etc were before jesus and that the world had already been created ,and thatt there had been already a sky and an earth , trees,air etc . When Mary gave birth to jesus, it was under a tree and he breathed air and all that was on earth and under the sky , so how can he be creating the world?

Also, if there are 3 entities that control the world-Trinity,why the world havent yet fallen on our heads,since those three must have disagreed on something one day.

That the world is always staying the way it was year before attests that there is only one god,and since the word god is plural in English,muslims in respect and recognition of Allah's oness call Him-Allah
