I just want to clarify that I do not blindly follow any man.  I think most of the people who call themselves "Christian Scholars" have been deceived.  These scholars say that Islam, Judaism and Christianity are one, but you and I both know that this is not true.  I have studied the Greek manuscripts, I know the history of where they came from and who complied them.  I'm not ignorant here, I made it my life to study and find out what the Word of God is.  I have not always held the Bible to be true, I was an athiest for quite some time.

Anyway, on we go.

If Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (pbut) were standing before you, do you believe they would argue over who's religion was correct? Do you believe they would argue over who's God was the real God?

Ofcourse they would not argue. They would embrass as Brothers in the SAME FAITH.

How then should we act any differently?

But we need to realize that the Bible and the Qur'an say different things about these people.  Look at the account of Jesus, the Bible says He was crucified and the Qur'an says he wasn't.  One of these accounts is simply wrong.  But you won't say that the Qur'an is wrong and I won't say that the Bible is wrong.  We don't have common ground, do we?

I agree that those men would embrace as Brothers in the same faith, but is Islam, Christianity and Judaism the same faith?  I don't think so.

Show me one scripture where Moses said he was a Jew; where Jesus said he was a Christian; the Faith is obedience to Allah.

The truth is we will never know anything about these thousand year old manuscripts because History has been altered in every account upto are everyday lives.

A holy book is only made alive when God confirms. When I say confirms, not through the words of the book but when he answers your prayers!

When God confirms through your prayers which is the true book or faith, then that book will have life. In this day of age one shouldn't beleive men, family, mother, father or the history of men. One should look up to God and get his confirmation.

Only then will the truth set you free!

Names mean nothing.  It doesn't matter what you are labeled, what matters is the heart.  You know that.
