Written on Words of Wisdom: The rise of Islam and the Qur’an:

in response to Abdulameer:

You forgot the most important thing: Islam (in the Koran) considers ALL Christians to be the most monstrous of blasphemers because Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God. In Islam, this is the greatest of all possible sins. It is a greater sin than rape or murder or even genocide. It is the only sin which Allah will never pardon.
There are many other differences between Christianity and Islam. Here are a few:

Christianity says: Render unto Caeser what is Caesar's and unto the Lord what is the Lord's.
Islam says: Everything is for Allah. Islam is a complete code of life.

Christianity says: Go forth and preach the Gospel to every living creature.
Islam says: "Make war on the unbelievers until Islam reigns supreme in the world."

Christianity says: "Thou shalt not murder."
Islam says: "It is unlawful for a Muslim to kill another Muslim."

Christianity says: "Love thine enemy."
Islam says: "We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers." (3:151)

Christianity says: "Turn the other cheek."
Islam says: "Believers, retaliation is decreed for you in bloodshed: a free man for a free man, a slave for a slave, and a female for a female. (2:178) AND "Let evil be rewarded with evil." (42:41) AND "If anyone attacks you, attack him as he attacked you." (2:194)

Christianity says: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Islam says: "Mohammed is God's apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another." (Koran 48:29).

Get the idea?

In your exchange of Christianity says, Islam says, you made sure to pick and choose, with total disregard to textual and historical context, those phrases that portrayed Islam in a negative manner, and portrayed Christianity and a positive manner. Following your logic, one must understand that Islam is an intolerant religion, and therefore teaches violence and hate toward others. This should lead us to believe that Muslims have an excuse for behaving the way they behave. My question to you: what is the excuse which defines the behavior of Christians? If Muslims are evil because of their faith, then why Christians behave evilly? Are they innately evil? I need not to list the horrible acts of Christians and the crimes they committed against humanity at large. You should read the history of Christians and figure out why they subjected humanity to shear terror. It is obvious that the teachings of the Bible did not help its believers to make the world a better place, rather the teachings of the Bible had no affect whatsoever on changing the nature of evilness of Christians. Disclaimer: my comments should not be taking in generalization. I personally knew very decent Christians, Muslims, Jews, Atheist, and others.
