I don't think this makes any sense...perhaps you can elaborate.

This strikes me as a very important word to spell correctly.

Aardvark and I have far different standards for what we consider to make sense.

All claim to be monotheistic although the Christian version, the Trinity, seems the odd one.

Do you think when the Jewish Messiah comes, they'll call him God/son of God/third of God/..?? What about the holy spirit?

The Trinity was an attempt to market Christianity among Romans. Oh, and the Holy Spirit was recognized/discovered how many decades later


Despite the 60+ direct prophetic verses in the OT that spell out who the Messiah was to be, right down to family lineage, birth place, method of death, resurrection and so on.The Jews (priests) of Jesus's time didn't want to give up power to a lowly peasant who rode in on a donkey (which was also prophetic).

A prophet prophesying the next prophet is more than expected. Prophets prophesying the coming of God is ..... You fill the blank. Did Abraham, for example, know about Jesus? Did he believe in Jesus? Was Abraham saved or will he go to hell just because Jesus came later?


Islam is a different bird. Jesus comes, performs miracles, dies, raises from the dead and preached for 40 days after his burial, to crowds as big as 500 people, and the Muslim religion only refers to him as a prophet?

Not exactly. Jesus is only a prophet, yes. Performed many miracles, yes. However, he was not crucified nor resurrected. And BTW, we also believe he spoke in the cradle to defend his mother from the crowds who accused her of adultry.
27. At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: "O Mary! truly an amazing thing hast thou brought!

28. "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"

29. But she pointed to the babe. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"

30. He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah. He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;

31. "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live;

32. "(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;

33. "So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"!

34. Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.

35. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is.

36. Verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord: Him therefore serve ye: this is a Way that is straight.

37. But the sects differ among themselves: and woe to the unbelievers because of the (coming) Judgment of a Momentous Day!




NOPE, Christianity says specifically Jesus is the Son of God. Actually God/Spirit/and Jesus are one (trinity) Also biblical teachings are so divergent from Islam, that they cannot be talking of the same God. A god of peace doesn't tell you to blow yourself up, or demand you worship him. Instead the Christian God desires you worship him, and gives you free will in the matter. Not The Same!

Where does Allah tell Muslims to blow themselves up?? I bet you don't even know that the explosive belt you associate with Muslim fighters is an invention of Tamil Tigers (Sri LAnkan separatist), and they're not Muslims.

No other religion other than Christianity has a God who lived in man form, performed miracles and healings by large numbers, predicted his death burial and ressurection, walked on earth after death, and rose to heaven. These things were written closely after his death and by multiple witnesses and sources. Buddhists claim some isolated miracles from their leader, however they were written 500 years after his death. To me that is not credible. Other than that, no other God did these things in any numbers whatsoever, if at all.

Actually, there are many in ancient Eastern religions. All share a virgin birth, crucifixion, resurrection and a godly status.

And there's more, but for space I stop for now.

Trinity has been clearly explained to you before. It is personal resistance that is keeping you from understanding.
