To Lotia

You say "I told them all religions are same , God is one and all way goes to the same God , " and you an IT graduate Lotia!! I guess you will know about multi-choice questions, but multi-choice answers?? I'm not surprised the mullah was angry with you!!

"All roads lead to God" is a common enough saying, but all roads do not lead to God at all, some roads leading to very different places altogether, different religions making mutually exclusive claims, some denying that God even exists!!

I guess you will know that Islam is the easiest religion in the world to get into (by saying the shahada), but the most difficult religion in the world to get out of (alive!!).There might be 'comparitive religions' Lotia, but Bible-believing Christianity isn't one of 'em, The Lord Jesus Christ saying:-

"I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

Note Lotia, that He didn't say, "I am a way," "I am a truth," "I am a way," He said "I am THE way," "I am THE truth," "I am THE life." , not I am a way, I am a truth, I am a life, one way, truth or life amongst many different ways, truths or lives, but the real McCoy, the genuine article, the real thing, and truth is exclusive isn't it? excluding falsehood as it does.

Biblical testimony being that:-

"There is no other Name under heaven given by which we are saved, the Name Jesus Christ." Acts 4:12

You mention Islamic violence, and the inescapable fact is that violence was foundational to Islam, and remains deeply embedded in it, and on a personal basis Lotia, the saddest and most upsetting thing about Islam, is that the ONLY assurance a Muslim can have of getting to al janna, the Muslim paradise, is by killing and being killed in Allah's service, horrid isn't it? but see Surah's 4:74, 9:111 and 61:10-12 and you can read these online at http://www.quranbrowser.com/ which displays 10 different translations of the Qur'anic Arabic into English, along with transliterated Arabic, but whichever translation you read, you will see that they guarantee Islamic shahids ("martyrs") heaven in an economic bargain. Indeed, these three references explicitly use Arabic words that connote buying and selling and signing a contract of sale, the currency behind the deals being death by "martyrdom."

The wanabee passenger airliner bomber Saajid Badat from Gloucester, England, showed how well he understood this "bargain" by writing to his parents, "I have a sincere desire to sell my soul to Allah in return for paradise."

John Ashworth, the US Attorney General at the time of 911 showed he understood the Islam of Muhammad very much better than his president, by saying, "The key difference between Christianity and Islam is that the God of the Bible sent His Son to die for us, whilst Allah requires our sons to die for him."

No Lotia, all religions are not the same , God is not one, and all ways do not go to the same God. The God of the Bible Who "went public" by coming to live amongst us as the Lord Jesus Christ, around 2000 years ago is not the Qur'anic Allah.

"And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet" The Bible: Matthew 27:35

"They killed Him not, nor crucified Him" The Quran: Surah 4:157

"This is My beloved son, in Whom I am well pleased" The Bible Matthew 3:17, 17:5

"No son did Allah beget" The Quran: Surah 23:91
