There is a difference, it's not subtle, it's not nice, it's not PC. Hope you enjoy this!

Jesus never wanted to kill people.
Muhammad did.
Jesus never led an army.
His stupid followers have led many.
Many have been killed in both their names.

There is a difference between these two characters.

The primary observable difference I see between Jesus and Muhammad are that they were men, ostensibly prophets, from two different time periods with two entirely different groups of people following them around recording their comings and goings. Within the context of Islam, Jesus was merely a prophet and not the literal son of God. Within Christianity, however, Christ is God, part of the Holy Trinity.

How then is it that he didn't order people killed? God flooded the earth, killing the whole population of the world, save Noah and his family. God demanded the extermination of the Canaanites/Amalekites. If Christ is God on Earth, this is the same supreme being who did all of these things, just not in his corporeal human form.

Christ was also in perfect agreement with the father, so how could it be that he was opposed to war? Having one without the other and cherry-picking just the parts of the holy trinity with which a person agrees is inherently flawed.

Tell me about Jesus preaching that people should kill one another again.

As a part of the "Holy Trinity" in the Christian faith, Christ is an aspect of one God. He appears as the father, the son, and the holy spirit, but this is all the same God.

This means that Christ must be in agreement with other aspects of the trinity in order to remain one entity; if he is not, he is not in agreement with the understanding of what is meant by the holy trinity, and the premise of the faith itself would be flawed were that the case.

If it is understood that Christ follows the "rules" of the faith which names him God, then Christ is the same God who killed myriad persons through war, famine, and general wrath.

If Christ is the son of God, he is not peaceful. He is just the form utilized for God to walk the earth.
