Muhammed and Jesus do NOT come from the same source. Jesus claims to be the God-Head. He is God incarnate according to Christians. Muhammed was
just a human who was a thief and a murderer (it's well documented) who made up a religion by taking bits and pieces from other religions to create a
new 'religion' with political control.
Jesus says 'turn the other cheek'.
Muhammed says 'kill anyone who gets in your way'.
Jesus says 'give to the poor'
Muhammed said 'let's go steal from that caravan'
Jesus and Muhammed have nothing in common. Not a single thing.
This is the most unfortunate and terrible post I had witnessed here. Worse comming from someone like you whom claimed to defend Catholicism, or just
using it as tool to stir up political agendas. Haven't mankind suffered enough with religious lies and misinterpretations by stupid but greedy leaders
1. The Messiah HAD NEVER claimed to be a god. NOT in any of the books left behind by his disciples.
2. During the Messiah's times, he was sent to guide the jews, an existing civilisation whom were already following our Creator's guidelines, but sadly
misguided and astry led by mortal leaders. The hebrew nation was part of the western civilisation, and many of those there were espoused to great
thinkers from greece,and thus a rudimentary form of 'civilised' set of laws were in operation for the western peoples, although still barbaric, as
Rome was certainly no modern civilised USA of today.
Thus the Messiah only needed to use a softer side to convince the already better level of civilised inhabitants there, which were non-jews and
convinced of a better way to live and love by him, to know our Creator better, for the truth had been denied to them.
Unfortunately, the good prophet Muhammed had a harder time to convince the eastern barbaric civilisations - Persians, medans, afghan tribesmen,
normads, etc. It was a cruel land and cruelty was a way of life. Prophet Muhammed was shown the light by our common Creator, that a better, merciful
and civilised way of life from our common Source is possible.
He did not start off as a army,but only by himself, then reaching out to his family,relatives and friends. As it grew, Islam became a threat to the
tyrants of those days, and their response was by the sword. Prophet Muhammed had to use the same lingo that only they could understand - sword of
To be able to remain standing to explaining yourself in Arabia then would already be a mercy. To offer your cheek would only be an open invitation to
the vile uncouth and untutored barbarians to chop off one's head.
2. Zarkat ( tithes in islam) is the same, started by the good prophet to help the poor, just as during Moses' time, which greedy leaders had abused
time and time even in this civilised era with the misuse of such funds.
The east and the west were in different stages of social developement, and there is no one size fits all solution which the Divine Teachers sent had
to cope with and adapt to wisely.
Therefore, before criticizing those 2 Divine Teachers, do study on the history context of their era, or only either your ignorance or plain
wilfullness to hurt and harm others show.
We had only been worshipping the same source - our common Creator, known by many names across geological barriers, cultures, time and space. The only
differences are those that are man-made, to stupidly show superiority of one form of worship when there are none to be had, for under His Light, we
are all one race and judged accordingly on how we make use of our free-will, to progress and evolve mankind further, or to destruct it absolutely.
Does it matter if a muslim brother stands in front of christian brother, or vice-versa while facing and worshipping our common Creator?
Only fools and the wicked at heart flawed mortals would be petty enough to find fault or squabble in such, for under Him, we are all His children and
treated according to what we had done with His civilisational growth and evolution guidelines using our free will. And only He has that authority
alone to judge, for He created us all, not flawed mortal men.
