    War in the name of God

    Often people try to make this a religion on religion thing. However, Check out this site: www.faithfreedom.org, a site by secluarists and humanists about Islam. Here you will find more evidence about the problems with Islam I have mentioned earlier in this thread. As far as my God...

    War in the name of God

    Again, you fail to make the distinction between Jesus and his so called followers. When I joined this thread I narrowed my discussion to compare Jesus and Mohammed only. The reason was to answer the question concerning whether war to advance the faith is consistent with Christianity and Islam...

    War in the name of God

    Check out the Muslim sources I cited above and see how "tolerant" Muhammed was. Indeed Christians (I use this term loosely when refering to the Medevil Catholic Church) have done some horrible things but what does that have to do with Jesus Christ? Again,it is totally inconsistent for...

    Fundamentalist Christianity

    Ok into the Lions den we go........ A little about me. I as a Christian consider myself a conservative evangelical. Fundamentalist would be a little to the right of me I guess. What does that mean? Well, I do believe that the Scriptures in their ORIGINAL manuscripts were inspired by...

    War in the name of God

    War in the name of God is nothing new as you pointed out. I think it is good to understand the founder of a religion instead of looking at the actions of its adherents. For example in Christianity Jesus is the founder of course. He advocated non-violence and forgave those who persecuted and...
