It's always good when you can laugh at yourself and your theology...
I don't laugh at 'Christians', converting to Islam; it's impossible.
Did you watch the Video?
There you go trying to correct everyone, and you don't have a clue what's really going on. :BangHead:
I can't watch the video because I live in snail land when it comes to internet speed and it would take me an hour or so just to receive the download.
But Gerhard is correct, there is no such thing as a Christian (one who KNOWS Jesus Christ through the Spirit of Truth) converting to any religion that would declare Jesus not to be the only begotten Son of God.
God Bless! :thumbsup:
For those who haven't or can't watch the video...it has nothing to do with Islam. I'm not even sure why the title says what it does, but it's pretty funny nonetheless.
It's the same video I posted - The 12 Doctrines of Christmas. It's really cute.
I did hear a good joke today though: "Did you hear about the new atheist Christmas movie? It's called "Coincidnece on 34th Street."
That was funny!
ROTFL - LOVE it!!
annsni - apologize for missing your post.
The title was trying to make the point that it is so much easier to become a Moslem. All you gots to do is accept that there is one God and Mohammed is his prophet. One doesn't need to learn the meaning of complicated words. Moslems don't buy commentaries and various editions of the Q'ran.
Christianity is so much more complicated. Only Christians think God sends people to Hell for what they think about complicated theological problems.
You're right I didn't know or see 'the movie'. Why didn't you give that 'clue'?
In any case, I 'corrected' no one; I gave my opinion. Take it or leave it. But I have the full right to give my opinion wherever I like in this forum.
Whence your animosity?
It's hard to stay humble...
Yes, Steaver. The devil is shrewed though, so he thrusts Islam down the throats of Christians and they eagerly swallow Islam further down 'cause it's sugar-coated and branded 'Yahwist', 'Unitarian', 'Messianic', 'British Israeltism', 'Names of G-d' -- you name it -- 'Christian', but DENYING the Divinity of Jesus.
What to me is most tragic, is that this devilish monster rides on the back of "The Seventh Day Sabbath of the LORD God Almighty".
See, I was saved for about 25 years before I even HEARD some of those terms and even now, I don't know the meaning of all of them. But many of them have simple definitions that I HAVE known almost all my life.
Christianity is just as easy as Islam because all you have to do to become a Christian is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. That's it. From there, obedience follows but we are not obedient to earn salvation. However, in Islam, there are MANY things you must do to be saved. You are completely incorrect that all you need to know is that there is one God and Mohammed is his prophet - that is not at all the basis of Islam. There are so many other things to do and even if you do them all, you are not guaranteed salvation. See in Christianity, you receive salvation through faith. In Islam, you receive salvation through your own actions - not faith. Which do you think is better?
>Christianity is just as easy as Islam because all you have to do to become a Christian is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. That's it.
Then why is there NO denomination which uses this as its creed or statement of faith without adding all kinds of baggage to it?
I'd say that most of them do without adding baggage. What do you mean that they add baggage? What sort of things do they say you need to to for salvation??
Why Christians are converting to being Muslims?
The answer is very simple. They were never Christians to begin with.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the Gospel of The Word --- God's Word.
It presupposes intelligent creatures; it requires they LEARN and be TAUGHT 'word-science'. So they can 'add baggage'. It is expected of understanding and knowing beings --- because they're human.
The difference comes in as to what one views as 'baggage' and whether 'baggage' is loaded with bad or neutral or good connotation.
The baggage is used as a power play against other Christian denominations.
