Muslim and infidels

I started to read the Quran and saw some things in it that were very negative. Like how they make statements over and over again that Jesus was just a man. Being that the Muslim faith is newer than Christianity by how many years how could they say such a thing? Not just a point if Jesus was just a man or not but people believe in him why would they go to disrespect other people of faith so much?

Next up why is there such a clash with Muslims and Christans or people of judaism?
The Quran seems just like a re edited Torah yet so many Muslims hate people of other faith and I guess people that are white. I don't understand how they can be so hateful and yet carry a holy book like they have the answer to God and only them.

If we were all infidels why can't God judge us? Why do we need a terror squad to do this? I understand how they can hate america as America does things on a global front and they feel as if America is stepping in their backyard and they feel violated but so many Muslims seem to carry this deep Hate in them its so hard for me to understand. I would never do that to another person.

Anyone care to offer a psychological break down on these people or shed some insight on the religous stand point?

Not all muslims hate the US and Jesus being a man is a important part of Islam because we dont believe in children of god. Islam has been more tolerant and respectfull towards christianity than vice versa.

In order to understand the Muslim position w/r/t Christianity, you need to set aside your Christian beliefs and try to put yourself in the Muslim's position. If you begin with the idea that Jesus was/is God incarnate, and see any questioning of that idea as an insult, then you are never going to be able to understand.

From outside Christianity, the claim that Jesus was God incarnate (except in the sense Hindus and Buddhists believe we are all God incarnate -- something that Muslims don't believe anyway, so it's not pertinent here) is an extraordinary claim, not a stipulation. As such, to reject the claim is not to insult Jesus. It's simply to doubt something that, on the face of it, is pretty over-the-top.

The core Muslim belief is that God has, over time, given mankind a series of prophets, each of whom brought a new dispensation. Each time a new prophet appears, the ones before, while still honored, are no longer regarded as current. Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed are all regarded as prophets. Jesus' message supplanted that of Moses, and Mohammed's supplanted that of Jesus.

As for the kinship among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Muslims do recognize that. All three faiths are considered "People of the Book," and inheritors of the message of God. Muslims simply consider themselves more up-to-date than Jews or Christians, whom they regarded as following a prophet from the past.

You may of course not agree with this idea (I don't myself), but it isn't that hard to understand if you just step outside your own box and look at it objectively.

Sweeping Generaluisations FTW!!!:shk:

Im getting tired of muslim bashing everywhere, all i see is the same old argumentsd being used again and again....

Im an athiest, and i (no offense) find the idea of god impregnating a virgin and her having the child of god ludicrous!

I believe more that aliens have visited earth (something im skeptical about)

So, i said it, am i know vishous (spelling?) for stating my mind, i dont know the exacts, but from what ive heard from my muslim freinds, they find the idea of christ offensive (because of the fact nothing is as great as god)...

You need to look at both sides of the story from a true-nuetral standpoint before making judgment should try it.

its not that The Quran downs 'whites' in anyway, every race is equal in the eyes of Allah, but no religion is right but Islam in the eyes of Allah, so in the end, everyone will be judged.

As I use to be christian and recently converted to Islam,i'll be able to relate to both somehow, hopefully, lol.
