The fact that Christians believe that Christ also is God does not make it true.
It only explains that Christians believe that they are the 1 true religion.

The fact that I believe to be the most intelligent poster on this board does not make it so.

And that belief is why Islam and Judism are not Christianity

Using your logic you and I are Christians. Since Christianity is defined by the belief that Jesus is God. You and I either believe or don't believe in the same God.

Arrow I'm a follower of Jesus and not a Jew, Christian or Muslim.

Chrisrtians have problems with defining which of them is a Christian and which of them only call themselves a Christian.
I do not have that problem because I am a follower of Jesus and not a Christian.
I also don't believe that Jesus is Christ, or that Jesus is resurrected.
Nor do I believe in the trinity or in an afterlife.
Would you still call me a Christian?

BTW I'm also not a Jew or a Muslim.

I believe that Jesus is the Christ, fully God and fully man. He was crucified as a substitutional sacrifice for mankind's sin. All who accept that sacrifice and invite Him to be Lord of their life are Christians.

TD, you are obviously intelligent, educated and well informed. We could go on like this until one of can no longer type but why. I don't believe I can change your mind or you change mine. So let's stop trying. If you would like my opinion or I yours lets DM each other and stop the senseless slaughter of gigabytes. OK friend?

I wasn't trying to change your mind, I was only defending what I believe.
As long as you do not hurt others or impose on what I believe, I do not truly care what other people believe.

No.
The devils believe and are terrified. If you stay on your present course, you'll have the same reaction when you meet him. He'll be the angry God, who'll pound his punishing blows upon you.

It might have something to do with more English speaking Christians writing those words than English speaking Muslims. We might get different numbers with Arabic, Hewbrew, Chinese, etc., depending on a language's collective attitudes toward certain beliefs. Just sayin'...

Hijacks WILL NOT be tolerated.

Come on folks, report posts when posters have no respect for an OP and decide to take these things their own direction.

Some people need to start their own threads and stop abusing the rights of others.
