Too bad for the Jews under Moses there was no such thing as freedom of religion. Moses had a man stoned to death for picking up sticks on the sabbath. Why would Moses get upset because they wanted to make a gold statue? Moses became very controlling. VERY oppressive.

And that was on his good days.

To see what Moses did when he was in a bad mood, read Chapter 31 in the Book of Numbers.

In truth, many "Christians" are not Christians. This would be in all denominations.

Christians do not self-identify . . . God determines who follows Christ's Holy Spirit . . . or not. All we can do is guess what Spirit guides them based on their "fruit."

but I dont understand. The fact that he brought peace by COMPARISON doesnt mean he was better. He still was not warlord/theif and he married a 9 year old girl. And has anyone read about how he was found when he was dead?

Just curious as to how you think he was found when he died?

Keep in mind both "Wikiislam" and "answering Islam" are anti-Islam sites.

Wow I read your story, it's pretty amazing. You don't often hear of Christian to Agnostic to Muslim testimonies. I guess different holy books can inspire different people. Doctrinally was there anything in Islam that you found more compelling than Christianity? Did you find the voice of God more authentic in the Qu'ran than the Bible?
