John said: "I ask you though one question : what is so UNIQUE about islam that you can not find in the Old or the New Testament ? I personally find nothing new except heretic views of the Old and New Testament mixed with the laws, rules and regulations of seventh century arabia. And do you really think that islam will modernize if they adhere to it ? if so were are the moderns, will they stand up or will the TRUE ISLAM please stand up."

What is unique about Islam? This is my answer: Islam is the only religion of all the Prophets of God like Abraham, Moses, David, John the Baptist and Jesus because it is only the religion which is based on worshipping the only One True God and complete submission to His divine the Will/Law.

Muslims and Jews have virtually the same concept of salvation in contrast to christianity which is base on the pagan mystery religion of a dying and resurrecting godmen! Only that Jews are still in the Old Covenant and had refuse to believe Jesus and Muhamamd. By rejecting Prophet Muhammad the Jews and christians have also failed to embrace in the New Covenant brought by Prophet Muhammad! Old Covenant is the law of God revealed to Moses while the New Coveant is the islamic Law revealed to Muhammad. Jesus on his part never brough a new Law as confirmed also in HQ61:6 and Matth5:17-19. Unfortunately, the New Covenant of Paul is not about the Law of God but about the faith of his tortured and crucified christ which is very absurd and ridiculous concept of religion. Worst still, the crucified man is not actually Jesus but the traitor Judas Iscariot!!!

Actually the religion Islam of Prophet Muhammad is the universalized version of the religion Islam of Abraham. BecauSE Prophet Muhammad is a universal Prophet while Jesus is just a national prophet for the Jews(matth10:5-7;15:24) then it is prophet Muhammad who did fulfill the Abrahamic Covenant. For your information, Abrahamic covenant is the promise of God to Abraham that by him through his decendants after him all the nations of the world will be blessed and find salvation. This is only fulfilled by Abraham's decendant Muhammad that is why I embrace islam.

I repeat, the Islam of Muhamamd is just a universalized version of the Islam of Abraham. Christianity is not a religion of abraham since aside from the fact that its founder is not Jesus but paul - christianity is a religion base on the alleged tortured and crucified christ of paul which is definitely not a religion of Abraham!
