I AM ABSOLUTELY 100% SURE THAT MY RELIGION IS TRUE.

Reason:

HE IS PROPHESIZED IN THE BIBLE ( NEW TESTAMENT )


HE IS PROPHESIZED IN THE TORAH ( OLD TESTAMENT )


HE IS PROPHESIZED IN THE HINDU SCRIPTURES


HE IS PROPHESIZED IN THE BUDDHIST SCRIPTURES

HE IS PROPHESIZED IN THE PARSI SCRIPTURES

HE IS PROPHESIZED IN DEAD SEA SCROLLS





Where does it say in the Old Testament (torah) was speaking about Prophet Muhammad/allah. If he was the chosen prophet that was described in the torah why would he kill the Jews? Why would he ascribe to allowing to kill people that are not accepting of their beliefs? Why would you believe that Deut 18 is talking about a non-Jew when it actual state G-d will raise a prophet among you(jewish). So if you believe that Muhammad is true. Then anyone can claim that Deut 18 ascribes to there religion.I can claim I was prophized in the bible and so can any one. Bet you did not know that?

If you think you found the truth explain this:
"If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says, 'Let us follow other gods' (gods you have not known) 'and let us worship them,' you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the Lord your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you" (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NIV).

The opening post sounds like a sales Gimmick. It like saying Gm is number 1 in car sales. So buy a Gm because we are number 1.

But anyway, I heard that Mohammed originally held Christian based beliefs and began having some visions which he initially deemed to be "demonic" in source, but his wife and friends convinced him they were not. Interesting... I thought.
That sounds kind of familiar to what Joseph thought about his wife being preggers without his help isn't it?

What was your point?

If it's similar to what I typed above then all I have to say is "Amen, PhillyChief"

Yes, that's it. I missed your point. I thought you were not seeing the similarity and merely cheering yours over another. My mistake.

Nope, Christian with (marginal) brain in tact here. Thanks for checking....

I'd say it was a bunch of bunk, because it has been shown that that Q'uran does NOT make that prediction.

Well then you should encourage Osama bin Laden and the rest of those terrorist "human beings" in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan to read the book, because they don't seem to understand that "Unite all human beings" concept, or they show it by flying jetliners into buildings, blowing themselves up, and killing innocent civilians.

Equal Rights? Hmmm, I guess that explains why many Muslim women have to cover themselves up completely when they're in public, and a Muslim husband can have his wife executed for adultry, even if he has no proof of it.

This says it all and it was written about 2000 years ago.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Rob, you brought up a good point about this.

If you're saying the Quran predicted the collapse of the Twin Towers, then you said it was done by a Miracle? If you call radical Muslim terrorists flying Boeing 767's into the twin towers of the WTC, which caused the subsequent collapse of the buildings "Miraculous"... then I'm starting to question the claim you made about "The peace and love in the world". If that's your idea of peace and love, then you should read what Jesus told us in the Book of John, Chapter 13 34 A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

To me, it seems like a lot of Muslims are not practicing what was written in the Quran, and when you have the president of Iran who speaks of "Wiping Israel off the map", it makes me wonder what your definition of "Peace and Love" is?

Don't forget that islam is practice mostly in the 10/40 window. Most of islam is in the poorest nations of the world.
