To Nuray and PCMadness

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Good debate Nuray - Not sure you're right though

Bump.... Just wanted to add that as a function of his faith, Nuray *must* believe that you will not enter heaven, unless you have the qualities of a true Muslim. The opposite would also be true (if you'll forgive my brevity).

I'm late to all this, but to synthesize Nuray's position with yours: 1) Nuray is entitled to his belief, and you are entitled to yours. 2) Your beliefs must contradict each other, otherwise there is no unbelief to choose from 3) Only those with true-faith qualities can enter Heaven It is your spiritual confidence that validates your faith. The violence and greed in humanity comes from the struggle to survive and reproduce.

As a Westerner, I'd just like to say I'm not at all surprised that most of the Muslim posters are so reasonable and pleasant. Thanks also to the few Jews actually posting to the thread. However, I'm ashamed at the haughty, proud postings and false humility from so many of the Christians. Finally, I think anyone who posts here in favor of their faith has satisfied the requirement we all have to spread the Word! Hopefully I can get involved in a future thread at a more opportune time.

Submitting....
