Christ, just one of many messengers and prophets sent to the nations of the earth

Muslims are obligated to believe in and honour all of the prophets, and to testify that prophethood has been completed with the coming of Prophet Muhammad.

“Say, ‘We believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and all the prophets by their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we devote ourselves to Him.’” (Quran, 2:136)

  1. Paul,
    Thanks for pointing out and emphasizing that Christian history is not everyone’s history, and that the narrow-minded Christian worldview is not shared by everyone. This type of arrogant thinking is partly what turns so many people off about Christianity, as if no one but Christians had anything to do with creating western civilization, or civilization in general.

    Just a little bit of humility from Christians would go SUCH a long way!!

    • No it’s because it’s a myth with fairytales based on something that does not exist. Much like you…

    • What part of Nickys post was arrogant? It is true that Christianity has a great deal to do with the advancement of Western civilisation.

      It is no more arrogant than believing that Muhammad is the seal of the Prophets and the belief that Islam is the basis for much of the rise of the ‘golden age’ in the Middle East. For youselfs it is simply a statement of fact.

  2. I think it’s fair to say that from God’s point of view the hinge of history is at that stable, for up until then God was the center(piece) of civilization… and then He lost that status… Now Jesus is at the center.

  3. I think it’s funny that people think that western civilisation is something to be proud of.

    Do you really think Jesus would want to take credit for the crime, Greed and overflowing debauchery that is rife in it??

    What an insult to someone you claim to revere. We will just add it to the ever growing list of insults you pagans slander our beloved profit with.
