Before I elaborate on the question, lets get this out of the way.
This question surely must have appeared in the minds of many.... WHY ARE MANY TERRORIST ATTACKS PLANNED/CARRIED OUT BY MUSLIMS?
Now you must think, Oh, even if most Muslims don't carry out these attacks there must be an underlying reason WHY some Muslims are pushed into extremism.
1: In all English/predominantly Christian schools, children are asked to read hymns. Okay. But what gets to most Muslims including myself, is that practically all hymns are related to Jesus.
Now I understand many people do not understand the role Jesus plays in Islam, so let me just get this straight to you: JESUS IS A PROPHET OF ISLAM. HE IS NOT "THE SON OF GOD" he is NOT "GOD COMING DOWN IN HUMAN FORM" HE IS THE MESSENGER OF GOD.
All Christianity harps on about is how Jesus is their "saviour" and how his sacrifice has somehow erased the sins of exclusively Christians, regardless of what actions have been committed i.e. Priests
and all of that.....
Does anyone in their right mind think that God would send his own supposed son down to get crucified? Make him endure a terrible pain to forgive the sins of people who do not deserve it?
And to those who believe God IS Jesus (even worse) why would the King of all Kings who created all things and has power in which we cannot comprehend would get CRUCIFIED BY HIS OWN CREATION?!?!?!?! WTF is all I can say....
2: This has been in the news a lot lately, "Gays should be able to get married blah blah...."...WTF again....Why would gays (I'm not homophobic) WANT to get married because isn't marriage a RELIGIOUS ceremony and ISN'T Christianity MEANT to be against it?
Yes, is the simple answer. The fact some Christian denominations (Not all) have endorsed it AND gay bishops etc. is absolutely ludicrous.
Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."
Why would God say this and then decide...Nahh, I'll change my mind...it sounds so stupid. If Christians follow their religion properly they should know that God is the Supreme Power and our creator and surely the creator of the seven heavens and the universe should know the future? Apparently not according to some Christians.
Homosexuality is clearly condemned by the Bible. It goes against the created order of God who created Adam, a man, and then made Eve, a woman. This is what God has ordained as the normal means by which we carry out his command to fill the earth (Gen. 1:28). What God has set up is what is right -- not what sinful man sets up.
However, unlike other sins, homosexuality has a severe judgment administered by God Himself. This judgment is simple: they are given over to their passions. That means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins (Romans 1:24). As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing, and then they go and promote it and condemn others who don't participate in their sin. So, without an awareness of their sinfulness, there will be no repentance and trusting in Jesus. Without Jesus, they will have no forgiveness. Without forgiveness, there is no salvation. Without salvation, there is only damnation in eternal hell.
The fact that Christian leaders are going AGAINST God's words show their is some problems within the core of the religion.
Islam is a perfect religion which provides solution to every problem and answer to every question. As the word 'Islam' means 'peace', it is effectively the religion of every human who likes peace. Peace within a human being, peace of mind, peace at home, peace in the society, and peace in the world. In other words Islam is a way of achieving peace by submitting to the Will of God.
Peace loving people welcomed and accepted Islam throughout the ages since the birth of Adam (peace be upon him). The modern laws of Islam were revealed from God (Allah) to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Angel Gabriel some 1420 years ago. People who like peace, equality, and honesty in the society always welcome Islam. The only people reject this message of peace from their Creator are the wrong-doers and mischief makers.
Today, more than one billion people around the globe practice Islam, not only as their religion, but also their way of life. One-fifth of the world population from all races, every origin and nationalities regardless of their athnicity, culture or language follow Islamic teachings. In America, an estimated 130,000 people are converting to Islam every year.
Blessed are those who accept Islam and become the folowers of a natural way of life. Allah's has given human beings will-power and ability to think and differeciate between wrong and right, and His message is very clear about it: "This is the path of your Lord, a straight way. Indeed, We have detailed our Revelations for the people who think. For them is abode of peace with their Lord; He will be their protecting friend because of their good deeds." [The Holy Qur'an, Surah 6:126-127]
