May peace be upon you.. :-)

I am really finding a lot of common things and thoughts between two of us.

As Allah has commanded the Muslims in the Quran, to call the people of the various faith and come into common terms. I am really finding a lot of common term between two of us.

Though, of cource, you still don't accept we believe in the same God.

And you said a proof that we believe in different God, is the fact that we still have disagreements. While, then how about the Christians from other sects and you?

You have quoted many verses from The Holy Bible, which is very helpful to me. I do have a copy of a Revised Standard Version and a New International Version of The Bible. Though, as you mentioned earlier, you believe in The King James Version. Anyway, I think I'll still get somehow similar messages from all these versions.

Let me point out some of the common terms between us. You probably knew these ages back. But just bear me for the few obvious common terms below.

1) Christians and Muslims all believe what was revealed to Prophet Noah and the great flood.

2) Christians and Muslims all believe what was revealed to Prophet Abraham and his outstanding righteousness.

3) Christians and Muslims all believe what was revealed to Prophet Moses and how he and his people escaped the Pharaoh by crossing the miraculous bridge across the red sea.

4) Christians and Muslims all believe in the Prophethood of King David and Solomon.

5) Christians and Muslims all believe in the three prophesied people in Deutronomy, Elias (or Eligiah), The Messiah (or The Christ) and The Prophet (or That Prophet).

6) Christians and Muslims all believe that Prophet Elias (I don't know how you call him) was the prophesied Eligiah.

7) Christians and Muslims all believe Jesus Christ was the prophesied Messiah; and both believe firmly on his second coming.

8) Both believe Jesus Christ had a miraculous virgin birth without male intervention; and the miracles Jesus Christ had done.

9) Both believe that The Holy Spirit came down to Virgin Mary and told her that she is going to have a baby.

10) The first commandment for both is that God is One and Only.

11) Both believe and do the best to fulfill God's Will on Earth as it is been done in Heaven.

12) Both believe that we are all descendants from Adam and Eve (so we are all brothers and sisters by blood! That's what Islam teaches about the Universal Brotherhood).

The list goes on...

What I want to say is that, we could make a deal with each other. Both of us open our minds. Both of us, tell each other what our religions really are and what our religions really teach.

I am offering you a deal. And I am truthful to you. Almighty Lord is our witness. If I find your religion better than mine, I will come to your religion! But you have to show me proof! But you should also open your mind for what I am going to describe about my religion.

If you do agree with this deal, then I will be expecting the basic and fundamental teachings about Christianity in your next, kind response. :-)

Thank you, my brother.

May peace be upon you..

Yours Truly,
Ibrahim Yu
