• Yes it is, Jesus was a Muslim.

    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.

  • Islam and Christianity are both Abrahamic faiths.

    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.

  • In the same way ice is water. Just colder.

    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.

  • Mohammed is the profit

    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.

  • Yes, they just spell the name differently.

    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.

  • No I don't think so.

    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.

  • No, they are completely different

    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.

  • No but are similar.

    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.

  • No. Just No.

    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.

  • Muslims and Christians believe there is only one God / Allah

    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

  • Islam is not the same as christianity....

    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).

  • There is a major difference

    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.

  • Yes, if you mean what the world sees as Christianity, which is Catholicism. But NO if you talk about Protestant New Testament Biblical Christianity,

    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 very different

    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.

Islam calls for the worship of the same god of the Jews and Christians, The God, The One, The Only, Allah.

I love it when Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Mormons claim they have the same God.

“As early as the Upper Paleolithic era, some 250,000 years ago, various tools and iconography demonstrate that primitive religions were practiced, and possibly existed up to 250,000 years before that (Campbell, 1988; Gimbutas, 1991; and Jelínek, 1975). All of these religions, as far as we can determine from that evidence, were polytheistic, i.E., worship or belief in more than one deity. So, after a quarter of a million years of humans investing supernatural powers to a wide diversity of gods and goddesses, why did most people begin to believe in the existence of a single supreme being? When and where did this transformation happen?”

It appears that the transition to the belief in one God (i.E. Monotheism) began with Jewish tradition.

“According to Jewish tradition (Rich, 1998 - 2011), Abram (or Abraham) was born in the city of Ur in Babylonia (Southeastern Mesopotamia) in the year 1948 from Creation (circa 1800 BCE, although this does not necessarily mean that Judaism believes the universe has existed for only 5,700 years as we measure years). At that time, the Mesopotamians were still highly polytheistic, worshiping idols. Abram was the son of Terach, an idol merchant, but from his early childhood, Abram questioned the faith of his father and sought "the truth". Abram came to believe that the entire universe was the work of a single creator, and he began to teach this belief to others. Abram tried to convince his father, Terach, of the folly of idol worship. One day, when Abram was left alone to mind the store, he took a hammer and smashed all of the idols except the largest one. He placed the hammer in the hand of the largest idol. When his father returned and asked what happened, Abram said, "The idols got into a fight, and the big one smashed all the other ones." His father said, "Don't be ridiculous. These idols have no life or power. They can't do anything." Abram replied, "Then why do you worship them?" Eventually, as the story goes, the one true Creator that Abram worshiped called to him and made him an offer: if Abram would leave his home and his family, then god would make him a great nation and bless him. Abram accepted this offer, and the b'rit (covenant) between god and the Jewish people was established. ”

So, that is how monotheism, i.E. Belief in one god, started.

“Of course, the irony of this story seems to be lost on both the Jews and other religious believers: if the "gods" exist only in icons, and have no power that has ever been truly demonstrated to humans (well, except for the handful of "chosen" witnesses and prophets), what difference does it make if you pray to one or five hundred? They are still idols, creations of the imagination of Man. But such is the power of "faith" that logic can be ignored for the sake of whatever belief makes you happy.”

Each group conformed to the then current belief that the idea of one God was cool versus multiple gods, which was not cool. Each group created their one God, and added their religious beliefs and said their God told them the truth through prophets that somehow was able to communicate directly with that God, although no one else could. But the “God” of each group apparently told different “prophets” different values, e.G., Christians (e.G., Catholics – Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox, Protestants, Baptists, Mormons). Each group has a fairy tale about how God came down to a chosen few and talked to them (Prophets) and told them that their religion was the true and only religion (e.G., Jews-Abram; Christians – Jesus; Muslims – Muhammad; Protestants – Martin Luther, John Calvin; Baptists – unknown person speaking in Tongues; Mormons – Joseph Smith, a 14 year old con-artist, impostor, necromancer and a charlatan.

It is true in the sense that each group invented a God, a different God based on different beliefs.

The fact that they all have different rules and all claim that those rules were told to them by God just proves that God is a manmade invention that suited the various beliefs of the various tribes of ancient civilizations at that time.

So, the idea that Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Mormons worship the same God is not supported by any historical evidence and is pure nonsense; it was the accept belief at that time, the Jewish belief that only one God existed.

The most current belief in the modern world is the belief that God, gods do not exist (i.E., atheism), which is the only logical belief.

"I guess none of you really understood the fact that I was speaking of a Muslim "belief," and that Muslim only means those who submit to God. So in Islam, Abraham was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim, etc.
It doesn't matter what the tradition was that the prophet may or may not have followed. The point is that Muslims believe Jesus to be a Muslim."--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We all believe that Muslims like to create their own world history where Islam is the only truth and existed before everything else------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------=====================And, you are entitled to believe that lie. XXX
=================================I wonder if my life will now be threatened by one of your Brethren or comrades for speaking out against Muslims and their singular God, Allah and their prophet Muhammad?===================================================================================== I speak out against Christianity all the time, which is guaranteed under the 1st amendment of the US Constitutions as Freedom of Speech; but Muslims in America believe in the Islamic Laws according to the Fatawa of Ayatullah al Uzama Syed Ali al-Husaini Seestani – Sharia law, where I would be stoned for speaking out against Muhammad or Islam.
Talib.ul-Ilm says2013-05-29T21:56:44.667
It depends on how you speak out. You may have lost the concept of honor, but Muslims haven't. If you want to have a fruitful discussion based on clarity, understanding and sincere intentions, then lets have a discussion. If you want to mock God and His Prophets, then be prepared to fight and defend your very life.

If I came up to you and your wife and called her a whore, are you going to just sit back and take it? No. Not unless you're not a man. You're going to fight. Well now you're insulting a concept that is very much above your wife, you're insulting our very God and Prophets, you deserve death.

All religions are the same. Islam and Judaism have similar prophets and beliefs though.
