Christianity Vs. Islam
I know less about the Quran than I do the Bible. I’ve read both and used to know quite a bit but certain events damaged my memory so it’s sketchy. I intend to rectify the situation eventualy though.
For the moment I would like to make a few general observations
I do know, from what I recall, what I’ve looked up and what I’ve seen, there isn’t really a whole lot of actual difference between the Religions based on them.
Both have been excuses for Genocidal killing sprees in the name of their God’s and their Prophet/Messiah.
Both have had their doctrines twisted into whatever shape needed to justify hatred, intolerance, bigotry, misogyny and a multitude of other offenses perpetrated upon fellow human beings.
Both are extremely divided even whithin heir own general culture. Radicals and Extremists aplenty on both sides of the theological fence.
Both are based on Books which are purported to be, but cannot be proven to be, the “Word of God”
Both books contain contradictions which cannot be rectified with Logic alone.
Both Religions have been too often co-opted by their respective Religious leaders, who proceed to excercise their own personal ambitions and/or impress their own prejudices and hatreds upon their followers.
Both Christianity and Islam are at Heart, systems of belief built on the virtues of Love, Compassion, Tolerance, Understanding and True Spiritual Enlightenment.
Christianity Vs. Islam?
Maybe I should say:
Twisted and warped version of Christianity
Perverted and misguided version of Islam
