Jesus in Islam is a Muslim, one who submitted to God. However according to Islam, the Christians distorted the message that Jesus originally had and added a lot of Polytheism into it. This is a lot to do with the heretic convert to Christianity, Paul. Muslims and Christians worship the exact same God, and in all technicality, when counting the Old Testament, preach near the same laws and rules.
Jesus only abrogated certain aspects of the Old Testament, everything else is still supposed to be followed. He abrogated stoning, what can be ingested, etc. However nothing was mentioned about abrogating the law to not wear clothing that is made of two or more materials, or to well, wear clothing, as you see many Christian guys and girls dressing pretty bare.
...Except Judaism. They are not the same as in Islam=Christianity (100%), but they are the same in the sense that Islam is a continuation of Christianity, which is a continuation of Judaism. Here we use the term "continuation" to mean "it was born from" or "was rooted in" or "stemmed from". These three religions are the only three monotheistic Abrahamic religions. Monotheistic in that they believe in one true God and Abrahamic in that they all point to Abraham (Ibrahim) as a primary prophet that ties them together. What differentiates Christianity form Judaism and Islam is that Christians believe Jesus (Christ) is the Messiah and Savior, the Jews believe him to be a false prophet because he does not fulfill the "requirements" to be the Messiah (this is an extreme simplification for the sake of this post), and muslims see him as a prophet in the line of Abraham and David. Islam and Judaism believe the Messiah is yet to come, while Christians believe he had already come in the form of Jesus, the son of God. Christians are unique in that they believe that God has multiple parts to himself (multiple personality disorder) while Muslims and Jews believe in the indivisibility of God, maintaining the true monotheistic nature of the religion. Islam has more in common with Christianity and Judaism than Mormonism, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Upon closer inspection and research, you will find the LDS Mormon Church is more akin to a polytheistic religion (like the Romans, Greeks, and Hindu) than the three Abrahamic religions. So this answer is relative. No, Christianity does not equal Islam, but in juxtaposition, Islam is more like Christianity than any other religion in the world.
Yes, the ORIGINAL Islam and the ORIGINAL Christianity are one and both the SAME. If you compare the original message of Prophet Jesus (as), and the original message of Prophet Muhammad (saw), both have the same message. Believe in One God, accept all the messengers, believe in the angels, believe in the holy books, believe in the Day of Resurrection (Judgment Day), believe in the afterlife.
Love thy neighbors, treat women equally, show mercy to the young and the old, do not lie, cheat, steal. Do not commit illegal sexual acts, do not kill people unjustly, do not BE unjust, do not treat others unfairly.
Islam and Christianity, along with Judaism, and previous religions, are ALL the same at their CORE perspectives. ALL of these religions were revealed by God, and organized by their respected messengers. All messengers had the same belief, one God, and everything else I have mentioned.
I can list the names of many messengers, but I'll name a few, Adam, Buddha, Krishna, Confucius, Socrates, Abraham, Joshua, Jacob, Isaac, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad. May peace and blessings of God be upon them all.
All the messengers had the same message.
Me being a Muslim, the message of these messengers over time have been corrupted, and God has finalized ALL the messages through his master prophet, Muhammad (saw), and revealed to him the Holy Qur'an, the final word of God, which combines and corrects all the previous messages, of Jesus (as) and Moses (as) and further back.
Today, the original Islam is still being practiced, the Qur'an has not been changed or altered, despite the time that has passed since it was compiled, 1,400 years ago. This is accepted by non-Muslim scholars and historians.
So all in all, Islam and Christianity are the same at their core, but the people practicing them vary from one place to another place, from one belief, to another belief...Even within their own respected religions.
I believe this is the best answer.
The only difference is that Islam is causing the most eye catching problems now, just take a good long look at history and you'll see all the carnage Christianity brought to the world. It's easy to victimize the current problem as being worse, but I'm sure if you could bring people from the past and give them the chance to highlight the evil of their time, It'd without a doubt be Christianity along with other religions.
Could also say they're the same through the fact they're based on blind faith on hear-say from thousands of years ago. A good thing to think about is, if another religion was created to be the next 'big truth' how hard would it be able to establish itself in a world of hypocritical skepticism.
Their the same its man who messed it up. They both worship the same god the only real diffrence is muslims regard mohammed as the profit which according to the bible he supercedes jesus. The christians don't regard mohammed as the profit its just arguing over technicalities which man is good at turning something thats not supposed to devide into devision and the true purpose is lost.
Of course they are. But, someone is confused as to which spelling is correct.
Last time I checked the scoreboard, it was Islam 10 and Christianity 9. A close race.
I believe the final game will be held on judgement day, which at this point, has no definitive date, at least not yet, according to the Baptist News.
Islam and Christianity has different beliefs. We may have one God but we see prophets differently than Islam. Islam looks differently at what to do to please Allah. Christians have a different way of pleasing God. But I don't want to be the one on this subject. I'm studying Islam myself, and I'm a Christian. I'm comparing them, I'm not saying Islam is bad, I'm actually fascinated by it.
Islam and Christianity, though based on the same fundamental faith, are very different as religions. They follow different books of teaching; the Bible for Christians, the Qu'aran for Muslims, they have different religious customs and different religious leaders. Whether or not their beliefs are similar, they are very different religions and it is inconceivable to think that they are the same.
Islam and Christianity (I am a Protestant myself) share the same God of Abraham. The same God that is the God of Judaism, Catholicism, Orthodox sects, and Mormonism. While we all share the Same fundamental God throughout the Old Testament, the real diversity in the religions takes place int he interpretation of the NEW TESTAMENT. The real defining difference upon which all other differences between Islam and Christianity is that Islam doesn't consider Jesus the son of God, just a good prophet. From there on the differences begin branching, such as the 5 Pillar of Islam.
Islam is completely different from Christianity. Allah is a impersonal, changing God, therefore he cannot be trusted completely. The Christian God is a personal, immutable God, who never changes, and therefore he can be trusted. Also Islam is a religion of works-you must do things in order to be saved. In contrast, Christianity teaches that you cannot be saved except by faith in Jesus Christ alone.
But how Christians and Muslims conceptualize God in their
respective theologies is actually quite different. The emphasis
in the Islamic theology of God can be summarized by one word:
'tawhid', which means "absolute unity." Muslims insist that
there is no distinction within the Godhead. God is sublimely one.
Thus the Islamic polemic against Christianity has centered on the
doctrine of Trinity. This is the central doctrine that causes
problems for Muslims when they consider Christianity. Muslims have
caricatured Christians as tritheists guilty of "shirk", that is,
attributing an associate to God. By believing in the Trinity,
Muslims say, Christians believe in three gods. This attitude is
expressed in the Qur'an:
Say not "trinity", Desist. It will be better for you. For
God is One God
Allah said in our holy Quran :
"Oh People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of God anything but the truth. Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a messenger of God, and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Say not, 'Trinity.' Desist! It will be better for you, for God is One God, Glory be to Him! (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs" (4:171).
Can a Muslim answer these questions please?
Is Jesus is the Son of God, who live a perfect life on earth.
Was Jesus was born of a virgin, Mary.
Is there is a trinity of God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. They are three in one.
Did Jesus died on the cross and rise again in three days.
True Christianity is Biblical Christianity. As soon as someone gets of the instructions in the Manual they have another Religion. A counterfeit.
Islam was created in collaboration with the Roman Catholic church many years ago. (see the testimony of ex Jesuit Priest Alberto at Chick publications)
They are Mother and Daughter, if you watch how they operate. They both have statements in their faith of FORCED CONVERSION. Let them withdraw and deny these and they will be welcome in the World as Non Malignant to human life.
When they are politically powerful they are cruel and their subjects poor and ignorant, yet they appear meek as lambs when in the minority.
History , past and present is my supporting argument.
Islam is now a tool in the hands of the "One world government agenda". It is being manipulated by propaganda to bring laws into Western nations that would not have been possible without a "Threat within". Laws that control and limit freedom of thought speech and movement.
I say Yes to Roman Catholicism the System of Religion. Please understand - not the people, there are many good people in there, but the System of Religion is False. Same as Islam. They are Systems of human Governmental Control. Romanism does not hold to the Bible being the Authority but has Itself as the Authority.
The Muslim has the Koran as the Fundamental Unarguable truth.
To fully understand the Koran I suggest the best treatise to be found is called "Prophet of Doom" you can download it from a Google search. Islam was a constantly changing religion, with many contradictions brought about to accommodate the needs and justify the actions of its originator, Mohamed the Warlord.
Whereas the Jew and the Protestant hold the Bible as the Fundamental and unarguable Truth.
Interesting How the Pope and the Secular christians and Jews have been brandishing the statement that "FUNDUMENTAL religion should be done away with," Off course they are pointing at the Jihad Islamist's to force their case, to bring an end to non conforming non denominational, protestant believers.
But true Protestant Christianity is not a violent Religion but the True religion of peace.
This is Just another Attack on the Bible by old hairy legs using His henchmen as his mouthpiece to fulfill his agenda of One world Government with Him as it's eventual head..
Islam and Christianity are very different religions. Yes both are based on religious teaches and both have god speaking through humans but that is about where the similarity ends. The religions view Jesus as two completely different individuals. They view the after life differently and they view god differently as well.
